German Nobility. German queen and Countess of Tyrol. The daughter duke Otto II of Bavaria and Agnes of Braunschweig was born in Landshut. She was betrothed to the seven years old Conrad the son of Emperor Friedrich II in 1235 and married him in 1246. The marriage strengthened the alliance between the emperor and her father. In the following nine years the couple saw each other seldom because Conrad had to travel through the country to strengthen his fathers power in Germany. After Friedrichs death in 1250 he was elected King of Germany. When he departed to Sicily to be crowned Sicilian king she stayed pregnant in Bavaria. Conrad never saw his son Konradin who was born in March 1252. After his death she first stayed at the court of her brother Ludwig II who was Konradins guardian and later took him to Constance where Bishop Eberhard became his new guardian. In 1267 he went to Italy and fought against Charles of Anjou at Tagliacozzo, he was imprisoned and later executed. During her second marriage she gave birth to four boys and two girls. Her oldest daughter Elisabeth later became german queen herself. Her youngest son Heinrich, who was for four years King of Bohemia was father of Margarethe Maultasch but died, like his brothers, without a male heir. In 1272 she founded the Monastery of Stams in memory of her son Konradin. She died a year later and was first buried in the Castle Tyrol. When the Monastery at Stams was finished she was reburied there in 1284.
