Berthold II, Duke of Carinthia
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
Henry III promised his party-follower Berthold the Duchy of Swabia. However, Henry's widow Agnes of Poitou gave the Duchy in fief to Rudolf of Rheinfelden in 1057. Berthold received, as compensation for the abandonment of his claim to the Duchy, the titles to Carinthia and Verona, whereby the Zähringen ascended to the status of a mediatized house. In Carinthia and Verona, though, Berthold was never really accepted as ruler.
Berthold's sons were:
- Hermann I, founder of the Margraviate of Baden
- Berchtold, Duke of Zähringen
- Gebhard III, Bishop of Constance
Berthold was succeeded by Hermann I in 1073.
