German Queen's crown

German Queen’s crown

Elisabeth of Bavaria, Queen of Germany was married to Conrad IV in her hometown of Landshut, Bavaria in 1246.  Her husband the king was at war with the pope which lead to his early demise in 1254.  Her second husband, Duke of Carinthia, is my ancestor.  She is one of the only royal ladies in my tree who managed to avoid the monastic life.

Elisabeth of Bavaria, Queen of Germany (Landshut, c. 1227 – 9 October 1273) was the Queen consort of Conrad IV of Germany.

She was the eldest daughter of Otto II Wittelsbach, Duke of Bavaria and Agnes of the Rhine. Her maternal grandparents were Henry V, Count Palatine of the Rhine and Agnes von Staufer.

The elder Agnes was a daughter of Conrad of Hohenstaufen and Irmingard of Henneberg.

Marriages and children

Her father Otto II had become a supporter of Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor in 1241, following initial conflict between them. Their political alliance would lead to the marriage of the elder daughter of the Wittelsbach and the elder son of the Hohenstaufen. Said son was Conrad IV of Germany, son and heir of Frederick II. Their marriage took place on 1 September 1246, in her native Landshut.

Elisabeth and Conrad would only have one son:

  • Conradin (25 March 1252 – 29 October 1268).

Her father-in-law Frederick II died on 13 December 1250. He was still involved in a war against Pope Innocent IV and his allies at the time of his death. Conrad IV would continue the war until his own death of malaria at Lavello, Basilicata on 21 May 1254.

Elisabeth remained a widow for five years. She married her second husband Meinhard, Duke of Carinthia in 1259. They had six children:

  • Elisabeth of Tirol (1262-1312), wife of Albert I, Duke of Austria (1248-1308), became queen-consort of the Romans in 1298.
  • Otto II, Duke of Carinthia (d 1310), father of Elisabeth of Carinthia, queen-consort of sicily as wife of Peter II of Sicily.
  • Albrecht von Kärnten, died 1292.
  • Ludwig von Tyroln, died 1305.
  • Henry I of Bohemia (c 1270-1335), king of Bohemia 1306 and 1307-10, Duke of Carnithia 1310-35, Count of Tirol, father of Margarete Maultasch of Tirol.
  • Agnes of Carinthia (died 1293), wife of Frederick I, Margrave of Meissen (1257-1323), grandson of Emperor Frederick II, her only son Frederick of Meissen predeceased his father.
