Royalty. Born the eldest son of Friedrich Barbarossa and Beatrice of Burgundy. He was named Duke of Swabia in 1167, succeeding his cousin Friedrich IV. He was betrothed to Eleanor Plantagenet a year after his birth. It was broken before his death and Eleanor married Alfonso VIII of Castile. The time of his death is uncertain. It seems that he died sometime between his brother being elected king (July 1169) and Eleanor being betrothed to Alfonso of Castile (late 1169-early 1170). He was succeeded as duke by his brother Konrad who called himself Friedrich V.
