Beatrix "the Elder" of Swabia
Birth: 1198
Death: Nov. 8, 1212

German Queen. Oldest daughter of the German King Philipp of Swabia and Irene of Byzantinum. In 1203 she was engaged to Otto of Wittelsbach, who would 5 years later murder her father. The engagement was soon dissolved again. In the summer of 1208 she was engaged to her fathers opponent for the German crown, Otto of Brunswick and married him on May 24th, 1209. The marriage was consummated on July 22th, 1212. Her death three weeks later and rumours of Friedrich of Hohenstaufen crossing the Alps were the beginning of the end of Ottos reign. Deserted by most of his loyal dukes he had to watch Friedrich reaching Constance and taking the city without the resistance of the citizens. Two years later he was defeated at Bouvines and resigned all his posts. (bio by: Lutetia)
