Gertrud of Süpplingenburg

Template:Infobox nobility Gertrude of Süpplingenburg (18 April 1115 – 18 April 1143) was a Margravine consort of Austria and Tuscany and a Duchess consort of Saxony and Bavaria. She was a member of the Süpplingenburg dynasty.

Family

She was the only child of Emperor Lothar III (also known as Lothair of Süpplingenburg, Duke of Saxony), and his wife Richenza of Northeim.

On 29 May 1127, she married the Welf, Henry the Proud, who had been Duke of Bavaria since 1126. After the death of his father-in-law, Henry also became Duke of Saxony. He and Gertrud were the parents of Henry the Lion, Duke of Saxony and Bavaria.

After Henry's death in 1139, Gertrud married again, on 1 May 1142, to Henry II, the Margrave of Austria (died 1177).

She died on 18 April 1143, which was her 28th birthday. Henry later married his second wife, Theodora Komnene.
