Heidelberg is a German university town on the Neckar River, first referred to as Heidelberg in 1196 in a document in Schönen Monastery, according to http://www.cvb-heidelberg.de/e553/e885/index_eng.html. It is stated to be first mentioned in 12th C. as a "bulwark of the Reformation in the 16th century" in The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition, Copyright 2008, Columbia University Press. The Encyclopedia Britannica On-Line's entry for Heidelberg (http://www.britannica.com/)
confirms that this placename is "first mentioned in 1196"; the article also says that the university "was chartered by Pope Urban VI in 1386"
A map is on line at http://www.bl.uk/onlinegallery/ttp/mercator...#... which is dated from 1570, shows the city with the spelling Heydelberg. The i/y interchangeability is about the same in German of that time as in English.
