On the north side of the choir, opposite to Reglindis, stands Margrave Ekkehard II, the younger brother and successor of Hermann in the dignity of Margrave. With his death in 1046 the Ekkehardiner family died out in male line. The importance of the family is reflected in the fact that Emperor Heinrich III personally attended his funeral ceremonies in Naumburg. In contrast to the submissive piety of his brother, the figure of Ekkehard radiates authority, wealth and dignity. Like his brother, he also seems to look at the events at the altar.
