There was more than one Chassidic group through the ages. As a
result there was more than one Rabbi Yehuda HaChassid. The one who
everyone refers to simply as Rabbi Yehuda HaChassid outside of any
special context was among the Leaders of the Chassidei Ashkenaz as
they were called. He was Rabbi Yehuda HaChassid the son of Rabbi
Shmuel HaChassid (of Spira) the son of Rabbi Kalonymus (the Elder)
the son of Rabbeinu Yitzchak the son of Rabeinu Yehoshua the son of
Rabbi Avun (the Great) the son of Rabeinu Yosef the son of Rabeinu
Shimon. As a descendent of the Noda Byehuda and the Yismach Moshe
(through his daughter) I am descended >from Rabbi Yehuda HaChassid.
