the Premonstratensian Abbey Wilten gave this part/castral community of Innsbruck the name.
According to legend Wilten has been founded by the giant Haymon to the 9th century before it was passed in 1138 to the Premonstratensian Order. until the year 1180 belonged the entire territory between the present Wilten and the river Inn to the Wiltener canons. through bartering with the Andechser Counts (bavarians) who had built already on the left bank a small market town on a bridge(then called Inspruk), could be re-established Innsbruck in 1180, where the present-day Old Town.

meanwhile i have seen some notes for Robert living around 1080, 1180, 1280.....
also the Habsburgs did not rule Tirol that time, how to find stated in some other postings. this happend later in 1363. When both husband of Margaret and her son Meinhard III. had died, she gave Tyrol the closest relatives, the Habsburg Rudolf IV, and gave him 1363 the government.

"After the sudden death of her husband Louis in 1361, her son Meinhard III succeeded his father as Duke of Upper Bavaria and Count of Tyrol. However, Meinhard died less than two years later without heirs and just under a month away from the age of twenty-one. His death precipitated an invasion by his Wittelsbach uncle Duke Stephen II of Bavaria-Landshut. Stephen, allied with Bernabò Visconti, re-united Landshut with Meinhard's Upper Bavarian lands and also claimed Tyrol. Again facing the threat of losing her patrimony, Margaret was finally induced to contract the County of Tyrol over to her late son's brother-in-law, the Habsburg duke (and self-proclaimed "Archduke") Rudolf IV of Austria, who eventually united it with the Austrian dominions. The conflict over Tyrol was settled by the 1369 Peace of Schärding between Rudolf's brother and successor Duke Albert III of Austria and Duke Stephen II of Bavaria, the financial compensation for which was exigent upon Margaret's death.",_Countess_of_Tyrol
