Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: Jul. 2

German King. Son of duke Otto of Saxony and Hadwig of Babenberg. He married Hatheburg in 906 and had a son with her, but they where divorced again three years later because he had found a woman whose family was wealthier than hers. He married Mathilde von Ringelheim in 909 and succeeded his father as Duke of Saxony in 912. In 919, during the Reichstag of Fritzlar, he was elected King of the Germans. The legend says he was catching birds when the imperial insignia where given to him, thus his german nickname became "Vogelfänger" (bird-catcher). During his reign he was able to unite the German tribes to one Kingdom.
