About Gisela of Burgundy, Duchess of Bavaria

From the English Wikipedia page on Gisela, Princess of Burgundy:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gisela_of_Burgundy

Gisela, Princess of Burgundy (before 952 – July 21, 1006) was the daughter of Conrad the Peaceful, King of Burgundy and Adelaide of Bellay, Conrad's second wife whom he probably married for love, as he had already produced an heir (Rudolph III) by his first, more dynastic, marriage and was thus free to wed as he pleased. Gisela was a niece of the empress Adelaide.

She married Henry the Quarrelsome, Duke of Bavaria some time before 972. Although he died young, they had many children who acquired suitable positions among the ruling classes of Europe:

  • 1. Henry II of Germany
  • 2. Gisela, married Stephen of Hungary
  • 3. Bruno, Bishop of Augsburg
  • 4. Brigitta, probably an abbess
  • 5. Arnold, Archbishop of Ravenna

From the German Wikipedia page on Gisela von Burgund:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gisela_von_Burgund

Gisela (* um 950; † 21. Juli 1007 oder 1006 in Regensburg) war Herzogin von Bayern und die Mutter Kaiser Heinrichs II. Sie war älteste Tochter des Königs Konrad III. von Burgund aus dem Geschlecht der Welfen, vermutlich aus dessen erster Ehe mit einer schlecht bezeugten Adelana. Sie war Nichte der Kaiserin Adelheid, der Gemahlin Ottos des Großen.

Gisela war verheiratet mit Herzog Heinrich dem Zänker von Bayern. Die Verlobung fand wohl schon 965 statt, die Ehe wurde wohl im Sommer 972 vollzogen. Am 6. Mai 973 wurde ihr ältester Sohn, der spätere Kaiser geboren. Die Zeit während der Haft ihres Mannes verbrachte sie in Merseburg.

Gisela wurde im Niedermünster in Regensburg begraben. Für ihr Grab gab ihre Tochter das prachtvolle Giselakreuz in Auftrag.
