Named after Agnes of Germany (1072 1143), the daughter of Henry IV, Holy Roman Emperor and Bertha of Savoy. According to the legend, a bridal veil lost by Agnes and found by her husband, the Margrave Leopold III of the Babenberg dynasty, years later while hunting instigated him to found the monastery of Klosterneuburg at the same spot he has found the veil..(Vienna - Austria).
