About Adelheid Av Meissen von Meißen

Adela of Meissen

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adela of Meissen (also Adelheid or Adele) (died 23 October 1181) was a Danish Queen consort, spouse of King Sweyn III of Denmark. She was the daughter of Conrad, Margrave of Meissen, and Luitgard of Ravenstein.

She was married to Sweyn in 1152. As queen of Denmark, Adela was not popular, but criticized for influenting her spouse to abandon Danish customs in favour of German ones.

Widowed in 1157, she married count Adalbert III of Ballenstedt.
