GUNHILD [Æthelfryth] ([1020]-in Italy 18 Jul 1038, bur Limburg Klosterkirche).

Adam of Bremen records that the daughter of King Knud married "imperator filio suo"[2003]. Her parentage is stated by Orderic Vitalis, who also refers to her marriage[2004]. Wipo names "Chnutonis regis Anglorum filiam, nomine Chunehildem" as wife of "Heinricus rex, filius imperatoris" when recording their marriage in 1036[2005]. The Annalista Saxo records that the wife of King Heinrich III was "filiam Cnud regis Danorum", specifying that the marriage was arranged by Unwan Archbishop of Bremen[2006], although this seems unlikely as Archbishop Unwan died in 1029[2007]. Herimannus names "Chunihildem, Cnutonis Danorum et Anglorum regis filiam" when recording her marriage to "Heinricus rex, filius imperatoris" in 1036[2008].

She adopted the name KUNIGUND on her marriage. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "uxor imperatoris Henrici Gunhildis imperatrix de Anglia" was accused of adultery, that she was defended in trial by combat, but that after her champion's victory she disdained the success and became a nun[2009]. William of Malmesbury also recounts that she was accused of adultery and retired to a convent[2010]. She died during her husband's expedition to Italy[2011], the death of "regina Conihild" being recorded in the Annalista Saxo "XV Kal Aug"[2012].

"Cunradus…Romanorum imperator augustus" granted property to the church of Paderborn by charter dated 7 Apr 1027, naming for the first time "filii nostri Heinrici"[343]. Wipo names "Heinricus rex, filius imperatoris" when recording his first marriage in 1036[344]. He was installed in 1027 as HEINRICH VI Duke of Bavaria, until 1042 when he granted the duchy to Graf Heinrich [Luxembourg]. He was crowned HEINRICH III King of Germany at Aachen 14 Apr 1028. Duke of Swabia 1038-1045. He was installed as King of Burgundy by his father in Autumn 1038. Regent of the Duchy of Carinthia 1039-1047. He resumed possession of the Duchy of Bavaria from 1047 to 1049. He deposed the three rival Popes Benedict IX, Sylvester III and Gregory VI in 1046, nominating in their place Suidger Bishop of Bamberg, who succeeded as Pope Clement II and crowned him Emperor HEINRICH II at Rome 25 Dec 1046. At the same time Emperor Heinrich received the rank of patricius as a hereditary title, which carried the right to cast the first vote in a papal election, the power of which was reflected in the election of six German popes during the following decade[345]. Emperor Heinrich faced internal opposition in Germany from several powerful magnates, Godefroi II Duke of Lotharingia, Konrad de Luxembourg Duke of Bavaria, Welf III Duke of Carinthia, and Bernard Billung Duke in Saxony, all of whom were anxious to prevent the centralisation of power in the hands of the king/emperor[346]. A deeply religious man, Emperor Heinrich renewed the ban on clerics taking oaths in court proceedings, refused to follow the practice of bestowing church offices for payment and laid great emphasis on the sacral character of kingship[347]. He founded the convent of St Simon and Jude at Goslar before 1050. He died of a fever. The Annales Spirenses record his burial at Speyer[348]. The necrology of St Gall records the death "III Non Oct" of "Heinrici imperatoris"[349].

------------------

Gunhild af Danmark (ca. 1019 - 18. juli 1038) var datter af Knud den Store og fra 1036 til sin død gift med den tyske konge og senere kejser Henrik 3.

[redigér] Liv

Gunhild (også benævnt Kunigunde; i angelsaksiske kilder også Chunihildis eller Chunelinda) blev født omkring år 1019 som datter af kong Knud den Store og dronning Emma. Allerede i slutningen af 1025, altså som ca. 6-årig, blev hun sendt til det tyske kejserhof som et pant på fred i en aftale mellem den tysk-romerske kejser Konrad den 2. og hendes far.

I maj 1035 blev hun forlovet med tronfølgeren Henrik den 3., der på det tidspunkt var hertug af Schwaben. I pinsen 1036 blev de gift i Nimwegen, hvor et gesandtskab fra Danmark deltog sendt af hendes bror Hardeknud, der var blevet konge af Danmark efter faderens død i 1035. Omkring årsskiftet 1037/38 fik Gunhild og Henrik en datter, Beatrix, mens de var på rejse i Italien. Kort tid efter den 18. juli 1038 døde Gunhild, muligvis af malaria. Hun blev begravet i Limburg Kloster.

Efterkommere

Henrik den 3. giftede sig igen i 1043 med Agnes af Poitou. Samme år blev Gunhild og Henriks datter Beatrix den 14. januar 1043 af sin far indsat som abbedisse i rigsstiftet Gandersheim og den 24. juni 1044 også indsat som abbedisse i rigsklostret Quedlinburg. Hun efterfulgte sin tipoldefars (Otto von Worms, hertug af Kärnten) kusine Adelheid (ca 977-1044; datter af kejser Otto den 2). Rigsstiftet Gandersheim var et opholdssted for ugifte døtre fra højadelige familier, der her kunne leve et standsmæssigt liv. Quedlinburg hørte som rigskloster i verdslige spørgsmål umiddelbart under kejseren og nød med denne status en række friheder og privilegier. Beatrix døde den 13. juli 1061 og blev begravet i Quedlinburg. Hun efterfulgtes på begge poster af sin halvsøster Adelheid (1045-96). Hundrede år efter sin død blev hendes kiste i 1161 flyttet til Michaelstein Kloster.

Gunhilda of Denmark

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gunhilda of Denmark (c. 1020 - 18 July 1038) was the first wife of Henry III, Holy Roman Emperor.

Family

She was a daughter of Canute the Great and Emma of Normandy. Her maternal grandparents were Richard I of Normandy and his second wife Gunnora, Duchess of Normandy.

Gunhilda was a sister of Harthacanute. She was a paternal half-sister of Svein of Norway and Harold Harefoot. She was also a maternal half-sister of Alfred Aetheling and Edward the Confessor.

[edit]Marriage

In 1036, Gunhilda married Henry III, King of Germany. He was the son and heir of Conrad II, Holy Roman Emperor and Gisela of Swabia. They only had one daughter:

Beatrice (1037 – 13 July 1061), abbess of Quedlinburg and Gandersheim.

Her marriage was part of a pact between her father Canute and Conrad II over peaceful borders in the area of Kiel. The agreement had occurred prior to the death of Canute in 1035.[1]

In 1038, Conrad II was asked to intervene in a territorrial dispute between Guaimar IV of Salerno and Pandulf IV of Capua. He campaigned in the Mezzogiorno in support of Guaimar. Their victory found most of the Mezzogiorno loyal to the Holy Roman Empire. Both Henry III and Gunhilda followed Conrad in his campaign.

During the return trip to Germany, an epidemic broke out among the Imperial troops. Gunhilda was among the casualties.
