About Luitpold - Leopold von Bayern

Luitpold, Margrave of Bavaria

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Luitpold, Duke of Bavaria)

Jump to: navigation, search

Luitpold or Liutpold (modern Leopold) (died 4 July 907), perhaps of the Huosi family or related to the Carolingians, was the father of the great Luitpolding dynasty which dominated Bavaria and Carinthia until the mid-tenth century.

In 893, Luitpold was created margrave of Carinthia and Upper Pannonia by the Emperor Arnulf. He soon acquired counties on the Danube and in the Nordgau, even getting Regensburg around 895, and thereby setting himself up as the most prominent of Bavaria's aristocracy. He was a loyal friend of the Carolingian monarchs and enjoyed their support. He was entrusted with defence of the Hungarian and Moravian borders. In 898, he fought successfully against Mojmír II, king of Great Moravia, on behalf of the rebel Svatopluk II and forced Mojmír to become a vassal of Arnulf. In 903, he had the title dux Boemanorum, "duke of Bohemia." On 4 July 907, Luitpold died in the Battle of Bratislava.

Luitpold married Cunigunda, daughter of Berthold I, Count Palatine of Swabia, and sister of Erchanger, Duke of Swabia, an Ahalolfinger. Cunigunda later married Conrad I of Germany in 913. Luitpold had two sons by her, however: Arnulf the Bad and Eberhard, both later dukes of Bavaria. From his descendants titles, Luitpold is often called a duke of Bavaria or margrave of Bavaria, the latter title being more accurate to his actual status.

Luitpold (Karantanien und Oberpannonien)

Luitpold (* ?; † 4. Juli 907 bei Pressburg) war Markgraf in Karantanien und Oberpannonien. Seine Zugehörigkeit zum altbayerischen Geschlecht der Huosi ist in der Forschung umstritten, eine Verwandtschaft mit den Karolingern hingegen wahrscheinlich. Leben [Bearbeiten]Luitpold, der Namensgeber des Geschlechts der Luitpoldinger, wurde 893 von Kaiser Arnulf von Kärnten als Markgraf in Karantanien und Oberpannonien (Gebiete im heutigen Österreich und Ungarn) eingesetzt und trat damit die Nachfolge der Wilhelminer an. Um 895 erwarb Luitpold die Grafschaften Donaugau und Nordgau um Regensburg und baute damit seine führende Stellung im Südosten des Reiches aus. Von den karolingischen Kaisern, bei denen er eine besondere Vertrauensstellung genoss, wurde er mit Aufgaben in Mähren und der Abwehr der ständig präsenten Ungarneinfälle betraut.

898 zog er im Auftrag des Kaisers erfolgreich gegen das großmährische Reich und erscheint 903 in Quellen als dux Boemanorum. Nach dem Tod Arnulfs hat er eine solch starke Stellung erreicht, dass er als nepos des unmündigen Königs Ludwig bezeichnet wird. Am 4. Juli 907 fiel Luitpold an der Spitze des bayerischen Heerbanns in der Schlacht von Pressburg, als seine Truppen eine der schwersten Niederlagen während der Ungarneinfälle einstecken mussten.

Luitpold war durch seine Heirat mit Kunigunde von Schwaben, der Schwester des schwäbischen Pfalzgrafen Erchanger und seines Bruders Graf Berthold (Ahalolfinger) eine Verbindung mit einem wichtigen schwäbischen Geschlecht eingegangen. Im Jahre 913 heiratete König Konrad I. Luitpolds Witwe, um dadurch die Herzogtümer Bayern und Schwaben enger ans Königtum zu binden.

Aus Luitpolds Ehe mit Kunigunde gingen die späteren Herzöge

  1. Arnulf der Böse und
  2. Berthold hervor.

Luitpold, Margrave of Bavaria

Luitpold (or Liutpold) (modern Leopold) (died 4 July 907), perhaps of the Huosi family or related to the Carolingian dynasty by Liutswind, mother of Emperor Arnulf of Carinthia, was the ancestor of the Luitpolding dynasty which ruled Bavaria and Carinthia until the mid-tenth century.

In 893, he was appointed margrave in the March of Carinthia and Upper Pannonia by Arnulf of Carinthia, then King of East Francia. Luitpold succeeded the deposed Margrave Engelschalk II of the Wilhelminer family; unlike his predecessors he could extend his power unimpeded by the mighty Margrave Aribo, acquiring numerous counties in Carinthia as well as on the Danube and in the Nordgau around Regensburg from 895 on, and setting himself up as the most prominent of Bavaria's aristocracy. Though he thereby laid the foundations of the renewed stem duchy, it was his son Arnulf the Bad who, based on his father's acquisitions, first assumed the title of a Bavarian duke.

As Luitpold remained a loyal supporter of the Carolingian monarch Arnulf of Carinthia and his son Louis the Child, he enjoyed their support and was entrusted with the defence at the Hungarian and Moravian borders. In 898 he fought successfully against Mojmír II, the king of Great Moravia, on behalf of the king's rebellious brother Svatopluk II and forced Mojmír to become a vassal of Arnulf. In 903, Luitpold held the title of a dux Boemanorum, "Duke in Bohemia". He organised the Frankish defence against the threatening Magyars under Grand Prince Árpád and on 4 July 907 was killed east of Vienna in the Battle of Pressburg.[1]

Marriage and issue

Luitpold married Cunigunda, daughter of Berthold I, royal Count palatine in Swabia, and sister of Duke Erchanger of Swabia, a member of the Ahalolfing dynasty. After Luitpold's death Cunigunda married King Conrad I of Germany in 913. Luitpold had two sons by her:

  1. Arnulf the Bad, Duke of Bavaria from 907 to 937 and
  2. Berthold, Duke of Bavaria from 938 to 948.

From his descendants titles, Luitpold is often called a duke of Bavaria or margrave of Bavaria, the latter title being more accurate to his actual status.
