About Oda von Bayern

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ota,_wife_of_Arnulf_of_Carinthia

Ota, also called Oda or Uta (born c. 874, died between 899 and 903) was the wife of Arnulf of Carinthia, mother of Louis the Child, and was by marriage Queen of the East Franks and Empress. She was a member of the Conradine Dynasty, the daughter of Berengar, Count of Hesse.

Very little is known of Ota. Her name features in her husband's documents at the beginning and towards the end of his reign, when she intervenes for the privileges of the Kremsmünster Abbey and the monastery of Altötting, and for the Bishopric of Worms and the Bishopric of Freising. They are believed to have married shortly before the end of 888; Arnulf intended the marriage to win him the support of the Conradine family, which ruled in Bavaria and Lorraine. She was not crowned. She is believed to have supported her husband's rule energetically.

The most notable incident involving Ota occurred in the June of 899. She was accused of adultery (she was said to have 'abandoned her body to the Unzucht'), and was called before the Reichstag in Regensburg. She protested her innocence, and 72 noblemen swore oaths that she was so; accordingly, she was acquitted. However, the experience caused her husband, already in ill health, to die at the end of 899. Her son, Louis, who became King on his father's death, was then placed in the guardianship of Hatto I, Archbishop of Mainz, Bishop Adalbero of Augsburg, and several major nobles. Ota then disappears from history; she is spoken of as dead by 903, and is believed to have withdrawn to the lands of her family. Her property she bequeathed to the church.

By Arnulf the Carinthian, Ota is known to have borne Louis the Child, afterwards King of Eastern Francia. She was not, as is sometimes conjectured, the mother of Glismut, the wife of Conrad the Elder: Glismut was the mother of Conrad I of Germany, who was born c. 890. -------------------- Ota (wife of Arnulf of Carinthia)
