Wir können eine frühe Erwähnung "WITTELSBACH" auf die Jahre zwischen 1130 und 1135 datieren, da damals der Vater des ersten Herzogs einen Vertrag mit dem Domkapitel in Freising über diesen Wald schloss, denn er hatte von seinem Vorgänger die Vogtei, das heißt die Ausübung der weltlichen Gerichtsrechte des Bischofs und des Domkapitels von Freising, übernommen.
Seitdem stehen die Wittelsbacher (mit) an der Spitze Bayerns bis 1918, und seitdem blieben sie beim Familiennamen "von Wittelsbach", obwohl die Burg schon 1209 zerstört und nie wieder aufgebaut wurde.
