About Adalbert «el Joven» d'Ivrea, rex Italiae

Adalberto II d'Ivrea Da Wikipedia, l'enciclopedia libera. http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adalberto_II_d'Ivrea

Adalberto II d'Ivrea o Adalberto d'Italia (931 – Autun, 975) fu il sesto marchese d'Ivrea e re d'Italia, con il padre Berengario II, dal 950 al 962 (dal 951 in contrapposizione al re di Germania, Ottone I).

Tra il 958 ed il 959 sposò Gerberga di Châlon (?-986), figlia del conte di Châlon e d'Autun Lamberto.

Adalberto da Gerberga ebbe cinque figli: 1) Ottone Guglielmo (962-1026), (primo conte palatino di Borgogna) 2) Gisella (?-1020), sposata nel 983 al marchese Anselmo I del Monferrato 3) Arduino (?-† 1015) 4) Gilberto (?-† 1030) 5) Amedeo (?-?) ---------- Adalbert (c. 932 – c. 975) was the king of Italy from 950 to 963. He was the son of the Margrave Berengar of Ivrea and Willa.

On 15 December 950, both he and his father were crowned kings of Italy after the death of Lothair II. His father tried to force Adelaide, widow of the late Lothair, to marry Adalbert and cement their claim to the kingship. When she refused and fled, she was tracked down and imprisoned for four months at Como.

In 951, King Otto I of Germany invaded Italy and rescued Adelaide, marrying her himself. He forced Berengar and Adalbert to do homage to him for their kingdom in 952. In 953, Adalbert began besieging Count Adalbert Azzo of Canossa, in his Canossan castle, where Adelaide had taken refuge two years prior. In 957, Liudolf, Duke of Swabia, invaded Lombardy and caused Berenagar to flee, though Adalbert gathered a large force at Verona. He was defeated, but Liudolf died prematurely and his army left.

In 960, he joined his father in attacking the pope, John XII. Otto came down at the pope's call and defeated the two co-kings and was crowned Emperor. Adalbert fled to Fraxinet, then under the Saracens. From there he fled to Corsica. When he returned, he tried to take Pavia, the Italian capital, but was defeated by another invading Swabian army, this time under Burchard III. Only the interference of his brothers Conrad and Guy, who died fighting, saved him to fight another day, which he never did. His negotiations with the Byzantine Empire fell through and he retired with his wife Gerberga to Burgundy, where he died at Autun sometime between 971 and 975. His widow married Otto-Henry, Duke of Burgundy, and his son, Otto-William, inherited through his stepfather the county of Burgundy and is thus the forefather of the Free Counts and the Hohenstaufen emperors. -------------------- The family of Adalbert d'ITALIE and Gerberge de MÂCON [133809] ITALIE (d'), Adalbert (Bérenger II & Willa d'ARLES [133836]), vice-roi d'Italie

Italian ADALBERTO, Lombard king of Italy who shared the throne for 11 years with his father, Berengar II, and after Berengar's exile continued his father's struggle against the German king and Holy Roman emperor Otto I.

Adalbert joined his father in 946-947 in fighting the co-kings of Italy, Hugh of Provence and his son Lothair. After Lothair's death in 950, Adalbert was crowned with Berengar at Pavia. When Lothair's widow, Adelaide, refused to marry Adalbert and Berengar imprisoned her, Otto I marched into Italy in 951 to rescue and marry her. After Otto's return to Germany, Berengar and Adalbert resumed the throne and in August 952 swore homage to Otto.

In 956 Otto sent his son Liudolf against Berengar and Adalbert, but, when Liudolf died of malaria after a temporary victory, the co-kings continued to rule. When Otto again invaded Italy and was crowned emperor (962) by the pope, Adalbert fled to Provence.

Returning to Italy in the autumn of 963, Adalbert was summoned to Rome by Pope John XII, who had quarreled with Otto and now offered his support to Adalbert. Adalbert and the pope fled when Otto marched on Rome, installing a new pope, Leo VIII. With Otto back in Germany, Adalbert assumed the throne again. In 965 an army sent by Otto drove Adalbert from Pavia; the following autumn Otto inflicted a final crushing defeat on him and his supporters.

{Lillian Etters gives his dates from the Stammtaflin as 936 - 04-30-971, and states he was marggrave of Ivrea.}
