Quedlingburg Abbey was founded on the castle hill of Quedlingburg in the present Saxony-Anhalt in 936 by King Otto I at the request of his mother Queen Matilda, in honor of her late husband, King Henry the Fowler, Otto's father, and as his memorial.     
Quedlingburg Abbey was an Imperial Estate and became a self-ruling Imperial Abbey of the Holy Roman Empire.

Gandersheim Abbey is in Lower Saxony, Germany. It was founded by Duke Liudolf of Saxony and his wife Oda.   
In 877 King Louis the Younger placed the Abbey under the protection of the Empire, which gave it extensive independence.   
In 919 King Henry I granted it imperial immediacy.
