About Berengar II, King of Italy

Berengario II di Ivrea

Berengario II (ca. 900 – Bamberga, 6 luglio 966) fu marchese d'Ivrea dal 928 al 950 e re d'Italia dal 950 al 961. --------------------- Berengar of Ivrea (c. 900 - died July 6, 966), sometimes also referred to as Berengar II of Italy, was margrave of Ivrea, and usurper King of Italy. He was of Lombard descent.

He was a son of Adalbert I of Ivrea and Gisela of Friuli. His maternal grandparents were Berengar I of Italy and Bertila of Spoleto. -------------------- Berengar II of Italy

Berengar of Ivrea (before 913-966), sometimes also referred to as Berengar II of Italy, was margrave of Ivrea, and usurper King of Italy. He was of Lombard descent.

He was a son of Adalbert I of Ivrea and Gisela of Friuli. His maternal grandparents were Berengar I of Italy and Bertila of Spoleto.

From the time of Berengar's successful uprising of the nobles in 945, all real power and patronage in the Kingdom of Italy was concentrated in his hands. Thus, the king's power in Italy was nominal and, following the uprising, Berengar became the effective King of Italy upon the withdrawal to Provence of Hugh of Arles, who left his young son Lothar as titular king. Lothair's brief reign ended upon his death in 950.

Berengar, for his part, then attempted to legitimize his rule in Lombardy by forcing Lothar's widow Adelaide, the respective daughter, daughter-in-law, and widow of the last three kings of Italy, into marriage with his son Adalbert. Instead she entreated the protection of Otto, King of Germany, whom she married. Berengar then seized the opportunity and declared himself king, with his son as co-king. Adelaide's requests for intervention resulted in Otto's invasion in 951. Otto received the homage of the Italian nobility and assumed the title of a King of the Lombards. He forced Berengar to pay him homage (952) and married Adelaide himself.

Berengar and his son Adalbert remained kings as Otto's vassals. After 960, they attacked Pope John XII, on whose appeal Otto marched into Rome and was crowned emperor (962). John's subsequent negotiations with Berengar caused Otto to depose the pope and capture and imprison Berengar in Germany (963).

His consort was Willa, the daughter of Boso, count of Arles and Avignon and margrave of Tuscany; she mistreated Adelaide when Berengar held her captive for several months in 951. The chronicler Liutprand of Cremona, raised at his court at Pavia, gives several particularly vivid accounts of Willa's character. She was held captive in a German nunnery.

(* ca. 900; † 6. August 966 in Bamberg) war Markgraf von Ivrea (925-964) und König von Italien (950-961) (und damit einer der Nationalkönige). Leben [Bearbeiten]

Berengar war der Sohn des Markgrafen Adalbert I. von Ivrea und von Gisela, Tochter des Unruochingers Berengar I., und damit ein Nachkomme Karls des Großen. 925 wurde er als Nachfolger seines Vaters Markgraf von Ivrea.

Er lehnte sich gegen König Hugo I. von Italien auf, dessen Nichte Willa, die Tochter von Boso, Markgraf von Tuscien, er geheiratet hatte, musste aber 940 zum ostfränkischen König Otto I. fliehen. 945 kehrte er mit einem kleinen Heer zurück und wurde von den Städten und Baronen des Landes als Befreier begrüßt.

Nach der Abdankung Hugos im Jahr 946 erhielt zwar dessen 18-jähriger Sohn Lothar II. den Königstitel, aber Berengar II. herrschte an seiner Stelle, bis Lothar 950 plötzlich starb und die lombardischen Herrscher Berengar II. und seinen Sohn Adelbert zu Königen wählten. Als Lothars junge Witwe Adelheid sich weigerte, Adelbert zu heiraten, sperrte Berengar II. sie 951 in einen Turm des Schlosses Garda. Sie entkam, rief Otto I. um Hilfe an. Dieser zog nach Italien, besiegte Berengar II., heiratete Adelheid selbst und ließ sich ohne Krönung zum König der Langobarden erklären. Berengar hatte sich in die Gebirgsfestung San Marino zurückgezogen. Der wieder über die Alpen abziehende Otto ließ seinen Schwiegersohn Konrad den Roten in Italien zurück. Der brachte Berengar durch Verhandlungen dazu, 952 als Vasall Ottos I. zum Augsburger Reichstag zu kommen. Darauf erhielten er und sein Sohn das Königreich Italien unter Abgabe der Markgrafschaft Verona und des Herzogtums Friaul an das Herzogtum Bayern als königliches Lehen.

Während des Aufstands von Ottos Sohn Liudolf 953/54 war die ottonische Herrschaft geschwächt, was Berengar II. dazu nutzte, die abgetrennten Gebiete zurückzuerobern. Dabei ging er auch gegen den Papst und mehrere norditalienische Adlige vor. Als Berengar den Markgrafen Azzo in Canossa belagerte, schickte Otto ein Heer unter seinem zwischenzeitig wieder in die Huld aufgenommenen Liudolf. Dieser drängte den König 957 zurück in seine Festung San Giulio, von wo er bald darauf von seinen eignen Leuten ausgeliefert, aber von Liudolf entlassen wurde. Nach Liudolfs Tod am 6. September 957 übernahm Berengar wieder die Herrschaft in Italien. Als Papst Johannes XII. und die italienischen Adligen Otto erneut um Hilfe anriefen, begab der König sich 961 selbst auf einen Italienzug. Als dieser anrückte, weigerten sich Berengars Truppen zu kämpfen. Im August 961 eroberte Otto nach kurzem Kampf Pavia und erklärte Berengar für abgesetzt. Dieser floh und verschanzte sich auf seiner Festung San Leo im Gebiet von Montefeltro, bis er sich 964 schließlich ergab. Otto I. schickte den Gefangenen nach Bamberg, wo er 966 starb. Seine Gemahlin Willa ging in ein Kloster, seine Söhne starben in der Verbannung. Weblinks [Bearbeiten]

From the time of Berengar's successful uprising of the nobles in 945, all real power and patronage in the Kingdom of Italy was concentrated in his hands. Thus, the king's power in Italy was nominal and, following the uprising, Berengar became the effective King of Italy upon the withdrawal to Provence of Hugh of Arles, who left his young son Lothar as titular king. Lothair's brief reign ended upon his death in 950.

Berengar, for his part, then attempted to legitimize his rule in Lombardy by forcing Lothar's widow Adelaide, the respective daughter, daughter-in-law, and widow of the last three kings of Italy, into marriage with his son Adalbert. Instead she entreated the protection of Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor, whom she married. Berengar then seized the opportunity and declared himself king, with his son as co-king. Adelaide's requests for intervention resulted in Otto I's invasion in 951, where Berengar was forced to pay homage to the Emperor (952). Otto, a widower, subsequently married Adelaide himself. Berengar was deposed by Otto, and Northern Italy came under direct control of the Holy Roman Empire.

Berengar continued in his position as a vassal of the Empire. Later (from 960) Berengar and his son Adalbert attacked Pope John XII, on whose appeal Otto marched into Rome and was crowned emperor (962). John's subsequent negotiations with Berengar caused Otto to depose the pope and capture and imprison Berengar in Germany (963).

His consort was Willa, the daughter of Boso, count of Arles and Avignon and margrave of Tuscany; she mistreated Adelaide when Berengar held her captive for several months in 951. The chronicler Liutprand of Cremona, raised at his court at Pavia, gives several particularly vivid accounts of Willa's character.[1] She was held captive in a German nunnery. --------------------

(* ca. 900; † 6. August 966 in Bamberg) war Markgraf von Ivrea (925-964) und König von Italien (950-961) (und damit einer der Nationalkönige). Leben [Bearbeiten]

Berengar war der Sohn des Markgrafen Adalbert I. von Ivrea und von Gisela, Tochter des Unruochingers Berengar I., und damit ein Nachkomme Karls des Großen. 925 wurde er als Nachfolger seines Vaters Markgraf von Ivrea.

Er lehnte sich gegen König Hugo I. von Italien auf, dessen Nichte Willa, die Tochter von Boso, Markgraf von Tuscien, er geheiratet hatte, musste aber 940 zum ostfränkischen König Otto I. fliehen. 945 kehrte er mit einem kleinen Heer zurück und wurde von den Städten und Baronen des Landes als Befreier begrüßt.

Nach der Abdankung Hugos im Jahr 946 erhielt zwar dessen 18-jähriger Sohn Lothar II. den Königstitel, aber Berengar II. herrschte an seiner Stelle, bis Lothar 950 plötzlich starb und die lombardischen Herrscher Berengar II. und seinen Sohn Adelbert zu Königen wählten. Als Lothars junge Witwe Adelheid sich weigerte, Adelbert zu heiraten, sperrte Berengar II. sie 951 in einen Turm des Schlosses Garda. Sie entkam, rief Otto I. um Hilfe an. Dieser zog nach Italien, besiegte Berengar II., heiratete Adelheid selbst und ließ sich ohne Krönung zum König der Langobarden erklären. Berengar hatte sich in die Gebirgsfestung San Marino zurückgezogen. Der wieder über die Alpen abziehende Otto ließ seinen Schwiegersohn Konrad den Roten in Italien zurück. Der brachte Berengar durch Verhandlungen dazu, 952 als Vasall Ottos I. zum Augsburger Reichstag zu kommen. Darauf erhielten er und sein Sohn das Königreich Italien unter Abgabe der Markgrafschaft Verona und des Herzogtums Friaul an das Herzogtum Bayern als königliches Lehen.

Während des Aufstands von Ottos Sohn Liudolf 953/54 war die ottonische Herrschaft geschwächt, was Berengar II. dazu nutzte, die abgetrennten Gebiete zurückzuerobern. Dabei ging er auch gegen den Papst und mehrere norditalienische Adlige vor. Als Berengar den Markgrafen Azzo in Canossa belagerte, schickte Otto ein Heer unter seinem zwischenzeitig wieder in die Huld aufgenommenen Liudolf. Dieser drängte den König 957 zurück in seine Festung San Giulio, von wo er bald darauf von seinen eignen Leuten ausgeliefert, aber von Liudolf entlassen wurde. Nach Liudolfs Tod am 6. September 957 übernahm Berengar wieder die Herrschaft in Italien. Als Papst Johannes XII. und die italienischen Adligen Otto erneut um Hilfe anriefen, begab der König sich 961 selbst auf einen Italienzug. Als dieser anrückte, weigerten sich Berengars Truppen zu kämpfen. Im August 961 eroberte Otto nach kurzem Kampf Pavia und erklärte Berengar für abgesetzt. Dieser floh und verschanzte sich auf seiner Festung San Leo im Gebiet von Montefeltro, bis er sich 964 schließlich ergab. Otto I. schickte den Gefangenen nach Bamberg, wo er 966 starb. Seine Gemahlin Willa ging in ein Kloster, seine Söhne starben in der Verbannung. Weblinks [Bearbeiten]

He was of Lombard descent.

He was a son of Adalbert I of Ivrea and Gisela of Friuli. His maternal grandparents were Berengar I of Italy and Bertila of Spoleto.

From the time of Berengar's successful uprising of the nobles in 945, all real power and patronage in the Kingdom of Italy was concentrated in his hands. Thus, the king's power in Italy was nominal and, following the uprising, Berengar became the effective King of Italy upon the withdrawal to Provence of Hugh of Arles, who left his young son Lothar as titular king.

Instead she entreated the protection of Otto, King of Germany, whom she married. Berengar then seized the opportunity and declared himself king, with his son as co-king. Adelaide's requests for intervention resulted in Otto's invasion in 951, where Berengar was forced to pay homage to the German king (952). Otto, a widower, subsequently married Adelaide himself. Berengar was deposed by Otto, and Northern Italy came under direct control of the German kingdom.

Berengar continued in his position as a vassal of the Empire. Later (from 960) Berengar and his son Adalbert attacked Pope John XII, on whose appeal Otto marched into Rome and was crowned emperor (962). John's subsequent negotiations with Berengar caused Otto to depose the pope and capture and imprison Berengar in Germany (963).

His consort was Willa, the daughter of Boso, count of Arles and Avignon and margrave of Tuscany; she mistreated Adelaide when Berengar held her captive for several months in 951. The chronicler Liutprand of Cremona, raised at his court at Pavia, gives several particularly vivid accounts of Willa's character.[1] She was held captive in a German nunnery.

-------------------- Berengar of Ivrea (before 913-966), sometimes also referred to as Berengar II of Italy, was margrave of Ivrea, and usurper King of Italy. He was of Lombard descent.

He was a son of Adalbert I of Ivrea and Gisela of Friuli. His maternal grandparents were Berengar I of Italy and Bertila of Spoleto.

From the time of Berengar's successful uprising of the nobles in 945, all real power and patronage in the Kingdom of Italy was concentrated in his hands. Thus, the king's power in Italy was nominal and, following the uprising, Berengar became the effective King of Italy upon the withdrawal to Provence of Hugh of Arles, who left his young son Lothar as titular king. Lothair's brief reign ended upon his death in 950.

Berengar, for his part, then attempted to legitimize his rule in Lombardy by forcing Lothar's widow Adelaide, the respective daughter, daughter-in-law, and widow of the last three kings of Italy, into marriage with his son Adalbert. Instead she entreated the protection of Otto, King of Germany, whom she married. Berengar then seized the opportunity and declared himself king, with his son as co-king. Adelaide's requests for intervention resulted in Otto's invasion in 951. Otto received the homage of the Italian nobility and assumed the title of a King of the Lombards. He forced Berengar to pay him homage (952) and married Adelaide himself.

Berengar and his son Adalbert remained kings as Otto's vassals. After 960, they attacked Pope John XII, on whose appeal Otto marched into Rome and was crowned emperor (962).

Berengar was deposed by Otto, and Northern Italy came under direct control of the Holy Roman Empire.

Berengar continued in his position as a vassal of the Empire.

For several months in 951 he held captive Adelaide, the daughter and widow of kings of Italy; she escaped and married Otto, who assumed the title of king of the Lombards and made Berengar his vassal. Later (from 960) Berengar and his son Adalbert attacked Pope John XII, on whose appeal Otto marched into Rome and was crowned emperor (962). John's subsequent negotiations with Berengar caused Otto to depose the pope and imprison Berengar in Germany (963).

Berengar II (c. 900 – 4 August 966[1]) was the King of Italy from 950 until his deposition in 961. He was a scion of the Anscarid and Unruoching dynasties, and was named after his maternal grandfather, Berengar I. He succeeded his father as Margrave of Ivrea around 923 (whence he is often known as Berengar of Ivrea), and after 940 led the aristocratic opposition to Kings Hugh and Lothair II. In 950 he succeeded the latter and had his son, Adalbert crowned as his co-ruler. In 952 he recognised the suzerainty of Otto I of Germany, but he later joined a revolt against him. In 960 he invaded the Papal States, and the next year his kingdom was conquered by Otto. Berengar remained at large until his surrender in 964. He died imprisoned in Germany two years later.
