Margaret died in 1267. How can she be 'window' of Henry VII Holy Roman Emperor while the latter died in 1313 ?

If Babelfish (and my very poor German) did not betray me, this is what this Austrian lexicon writes about her:

Margarete of Austria, * zirka 1204/05 or 1210/11 (the investigation of the Gebeine resulted in 1974 a recent age)? 29. 10. 1266 Krumau at the Kamp (Lower Austria), Babenbergerin, oldest daughter of Leopold VI., sister of duke Friedrich II. Married 1225 the Staufer Heinrich (VII.), the son emperor Friedrichs II. After its death 1242 it became in peppering castle Dominikanerin, returned 1246 to the start of its inheritance to Austria, married 1252 P?emysl Ottokar IITH from Boehmen, which legitimized thereby its rule in Austria, however 1261 to separate left. From then on it lived in Krumau, buried is it in lily field.

Therefore, Margaret was a widow after Henry II, Duke of Swabia (of Hohenstaufen family), not Henry VII, Holy Roman Emperor. Wikipedia writes about the former:

Among the rulers of the Holy Roman Empire, Henry is mentioned only in parentheses, as he did not exercise the sole kingship. He is not to be confused with the later Emperor Henry VII of the House of Luxembourg.

I add appropriate link to the Přemysl's article.


I will move this page to Ottokar II of Bohemia soon unless objections are raised. Srnec 16:25, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
