Having accompanied his brother Henry to Italy in 1191, Philip forsook his ecclesiastical calling, and, trav elling again to Italy, was made duke of Tuscany in 1195 and received a n extensive grant of lands. In 1196 he became duke of Swabia, on the d eath of his brother Conrad; and in May 1197 he married Irene Angelina , daughter of the Byzantine emperor, Isaac II, and widow of Roger III , Titular King of Sicily, a lady who is described by Walther von der V ogelweide as " the rose without a thorn, the dove without guile." Philip enjoyed his brother's confidence to a very great extent, and ap pears to have been designated as guardian of the young Frederick, afte rwards the emperor Frederick II, in case of his father's early death.I n 1197 he had set out to fetch Frederick from Sicily for his coronatio n when he heard of the emperor's death and returned at once to Germany . He appears to have desired to protect the interests of his nephew an d to quell the disorder which arose on Henry's death, but events were too strong for him. The hostility to the kingship of a child was growi ng, and after Philip had been chosen as defender of the empire during Frederick's minority he consented to his own election. He was elected German king at Muhlhausen on March 8, 1198 with the support of Phillip pe of France, and crowned at Mainz on the following September 8th. I n 1198, as the heir of his brother Henry's estate, Phillipp was obliga ted by the Pope to refund the ransom money that had been collected by Henry for the ransom of Richard I. Meanwhile a number of princes hostile to Philip, under the leadershipo f Adolph, Archbishop of Cologne, had elected an anti-king in the perso n of Otto, second son of Henry the Lion, duke of Saxony. In the war th at followed, Philip, who drew his principal support from south Germany , met with considerable success. In 1199 he received further accessio ns to his party and carried the war into his opponent's territory, alt hough unable to obtain the support of Pope Innocent III, and only feeb ly assisted by his ally Philip Augustus, king of France. The followin g year was less favourable to his arms; and in March 1201 Innocent too k the decisive step of placing Philip and his associates under the ban , and began to work energetically in favour of Otto. Also in 1201, Philip was visited by his cousin Boniface of Montferrat , the leader of the Fourth Crusade. The Crusaders were by this time un der Venetian control and were besieging Zara on the Adriatic Sea. Alth ough Boniface's exact reasons for meeting with Philip are unknown, whi le at Philip's court he also met Alexius Angelus, Philip's brother-in- law. Alexius convinced Boniface, and later the Venetians, to divert th e Crusade to Constantinople and restore Isaac II to the throne, as heh ad recently been deposed by Alexius III, Alexius and Irene's uncle. The two succeeding years were still more unfavourable to Philip. Otto , aided by Ottokar I, king of Bohemia, and Hermann I, landgrave of Thu ringia, drove him from north Germany, thus compelling him to seek by a bject concessions, but without success, reconciliation with Innocent.T he submission to Philip of Hermann of Thuringia in 1204 marks the turn ing-point of his fortunes, and he was soon joined by Adolph of Cologn e and Henry I, Duke of Brabant. On January 6, 1205 he was crowned again with great ceremony by Adolpha t Aix-la-Chapelle, though it was not till 1207 that his entry into Col ogne practically brought the war to a close. A month or two later Phil ip was loosed from the papal ban, and in March 1208 it seems probable that a treaty was concluded by which a nephew of the pope was to marr y one of Philip's daughters and to receive the disputed dukedom of Tus cany. Philip was preparing to crush the last flicker of the rebellion in Brunswick-Lüneburg when he was murdered at Bamberg, on June 21, 120 8, by Otto of Wittelsbach, count palatine in Bavaria, to whom he had r efused the hand of one of his daughters. Philip was a brave and handso me man, and contemporary writers, among whom was Walther von der Vogel weide, praise his mildness and generosity.
