Royalty, german king and roman emperor, only surviving son of Heinrich III and his wife Agnes of Poitou. He was his fathers co-king in Germany since 1054 and succeeded him two years later. His mother and later archbishop Anno II of Cologne acted as his regents until 1066. From first wife Bertha of Savoy he had five children. He was first buried in the Cathedral of Liége but because he had died banned by the Pope he was reburied in unconsecrated earth outside the city. His sarcophagus was later moved to Speyer and placed in the unfinished St Afra chapel. Only after the repeal of the bann in 1111 he was buried beside his father.
