1. THANKMAR ([907/09]-murdered Eresburg 28 Jul 938). Widukind names "Thancmari" as son of King Heinrich, when recording his rebellion against King Otto, and in a later passage names his mother[164]. Thietmar records the birth of "Tammo"[165]. He was considered illegitimate on the basis that his mother had taken the veil before her second marriage, which was therefore invalid[166]. Thietmar records the rebellion of "Tammo son of the king and Liudgard", and that Thankmar claimed the inheritance of Siegfried Graf [von Merseburg], Pfalzgraf von Sachsen (who was his mother's first cousin). He was besieged in Eresburg, forced into the church of St Peter where he was killed 28 Jul by Maginzo before the altar, his murderer being punished with a cruel death by the king "later, in the second year of his reign"[167]. The necrology of Merseburg records the death "28 Jul" of "Thancmar frater magni Oddonis"[168].

King Heinrich & his second wife had five children:
