Judith von Bayern
Birth: unknown
Death: Jun. 29

German Nobility. She was born in 925 as the eldest daughter of Arnulf Duke of Bavaria and his wife Judith of Friuli. Sometime before 937 she was married to the second son of king Heinrich I and his wife Mathilde von Ringelheim. After her husbands death in 955, his brother Emperor Otto, appointed her and Bishop Abraham von Freising with the guardianship of the young Heinrich. She reigned Bavaria and Friuli for a decade but later stayed away from her sons rebellion against Otto II. Between 966 and 973 she went on a pilgrimage to the holy land, being probably the first woman from a princely family of Germany to do so. The relics she brought back from there were donated to Niedermünster. She retired to the abbey around 974 and died there on a June 29, after 985. (bio by: Lutetia)
