Contents [hide] 1 Family 2 Marriage 3 Murder 4 In Media 5 References [edit] Family Gertrude and her Meranian family Gertrude's sister was Agnes of Merania, a famous beauty, who married King Philippe Auguste of France. Her other sister was St. Hedwig of Andechs, wife of Henry I the Bearded. Their brother was Otto I, Duke of Merania. Gertrude's mother, Agnes was a great great granddaughter of Frederick I, Duke of Swabia and his wife Agnes of Germany. [2] Agnes of Germany was a daughter of Henry IV, Holy Roman Emperor and his first wife, Bertha of Savoy. Gertude's paternal grandparents were Berthold V, Count of Andechs and his wife, Hedwig of Wittelsbach, a descendant of Bela I of Hungary, through his daughter, Sophia. [edit] Marriage Her parents wanted their daughters to all make important political marriages, which would create alliances for Berthold IV. Gertrude married Andrew II of Hungary before 1203. The couple had five children: Anna Maria of Hungary (c. 1204 � 1237), wife of Tzar Ivan Asen II of Bulgaria King B�ela IV of Hungary (1206 � 3 May 1270) Saint Elisabeth of Hungary (1207 � 10 November 1231), wife of Landgraf Louis IV of Thuringia King Coloman of Halych (1208 � after 11 April 1241) Prince Andrew II of Halych (c. 1210 � 1234) [3] Gertrude had much political influence over her husband. It was probably Gertrude who persuaded Andrew to conspire against his brother again, but when King Emeric, who had realised that Andrew's troops outnumbered his armies, wentunarmed, wearing only the crown and the sceptre, to Andrew's camp near Varasd, Andrew surrendered voluntarily on the spur of the scene. The king had his brother arrested, but Andrew managed to escape shortly afterwards. During this time, Gertrude escaped back to her father. [edit] Murder Gertrude was killed in 1213, by the Hungarian noblemen, who were jealous over the advancement of her relatives at court. While the king was in battle, Gertrude gave out Hungarian land as "gifts" to her German relatives. (One third of the country was given away but the Hungarians got it back after the queen's death). Thus, Hungary did not prosper and the queen acted as a dictator. The Hungarian nobles had enough and in 1213 while hunting, she was killed. Due to the current political situation most of her murderers remained unpunished during the rule of Andrew II. Only Gertrude's son B�ela IV took revenge after his assession to the throne. Gertrude's tomb was of a Gothic style. Her tomb was excavated between 1967 and 1980. [4] Through her son Bela, Gertrude was an ancestress of Philippa of Hainault, Queen consort of Edward III of England. Gertrude's husband went on to remarry twice again. His second wife was Yolanda de Courtenay, who bore him one daughter, Violant, who married James I of Aragon. On Yolanda's death, Andrew married Beatrice d'Este, they had a son called Stephen.

Berthold IV. von Andechs-Meranien war Graf von Andechs und Herzog von Meranien. Andechs war ein Schloss und eine Gegend nahe dem Ammersee in Bayern. Meranien liegt an der Adriak�uste bei Fiume (Rijeka). Berthold war ein direkter Vasall des Kaisers somit von den gro�en Herzogt�umern in Deutschland unabh�angig. Sein Sohn, ebenfalls Berthold, wurde zum Erzbischof von Kalocsa in Ungarn und 1218 zum Patriarch von Aquileia ernannt. Agnes von Rochlitz war die Tochter von Graf Dedo V. von Rochlitz (Markgraf Dedi V., der Feiste, von der Ostmark aus dem Hause Wettin) und seiner Gemahlin Mathilde von Heinsberg, Tochter von Graf Goswin II. von Heinsberg. Dedo V. von Rochlitz und seine Gemahlin Mathilde hinterlie�en sechs Kinder: Konrad, der seinem Vater in der Markgrafenw�urde folgte, Dietrich, der sp�atere Graf von Groitzsch, Philipp, der vor 1190 Propst des Stiftes St. Viktor in Xanten war, Heinrich, Goswin und Agnes. Agnes wurde die Ehefrau des Herzogs von Meranien und brachte drei S�ohne, n�amlich den Herzog von Meranien (Otto I.), den Markgrafen von Ysterreich (Heinrich, Markgraf von Istrien-Krain) und Bischof Eckbert von Bamberg, sowie drei T�ochter zur Welt, deren Ehem�anner K�onig Philipp von Frankreich (Philipp II. August), der K�onig von Ungarn (Andreas II.) und Herzog Heinrich von Schlesien waren. K�onigin von Ungarn [Bearbeiten] Die T�ochter Hedwig, Gertrud und Agnes Marie wurden von ihrem Vater mit Mitgliedern der bedeutendsten Adelsfamilien verheiratet. Gertrud heiratete um 1203 Prinz Andreas von Ungarn und wurde im Rahmen dieser Verm�ahlung zur einer ungarischen Prinzessin. Mit dieser Eheschlie�ung stellte Andreas sich politisch auf die Seite des deutschen K�onigs Philipp w�ahrend sein Bruder, K�onig Emmerich von Ungarn, Otto IV. unterst�utzte. Andreas lehnte sich im Jahre 1203 gegen seinen Bruder, K�onig Emmerich von Ungarn, auf. Die Gefangennahme des Aufst�andischen hatte zur Folge, dass Gertrud zu ihrem Vater zur�uckgeschickt wurde. Doch konnte sie, nachdem Andreas im folgenden Jahr von seinen Anh�angern aus der Gefangenschaft befreit wurde, zu diesem zur�uckkehren. Die Kr�onung ihres Mannes zum K�onig von Ungarn zu Pfingsten 1205 verschaffte ihr schlie�lich die M�oglichkeit, �uber Jahre hinweg entscheidend Einfluss auf die Gestaltung der ungarischen Politik zu nehmen. Nach dem Herrschaftsantritt von Andreas f�uhrte Gertrud aufgrund der h�aufigen Abwesenheit ihres Gatten die Regierungsgesch�afte. Sie war von starkem Ehrgeiz und Familiensinn gepr�agt und wird von Dietrich von Apolda mit folgenden Worten beschrieben: �sie habe, von m�annlichem Geist erf�ullt, selbst die Staatsgesch�afte gef�uhrt�S. Die Rolle der K�onigin wird in den ungarischen Chroniken meist negativ beurteilt. Besonders die Bevorzugung der in ihrer Umgebung lebenden Deutschen wurde ihr vorgeworfen. Ermordung im Wald Pilis [Bearbeiten] Im Jahre 1213, K�onig Andreas befand sich auf einem Kriegszug nach Halitsch in Galizien, wurde Gertrud von ungarischen Adeligen w�ahrend einer Hofjagd im Wald Pilis ermordet. Grund daf�ur war die Emp�orung des ungarischen Adels gegendie �uppigen Zuteilungen k�oniglicher L�andereien an fremdl�andische Adlige aus dem G�unstlingskreis Gertruds. So hatte Andreas 1206 Gertruds Bruder Berthold im Widerspruch zum Kirchenrecht als Erzbischof von Kalocsa eingesetzt. 1212 wurde Berthold sogar zum Woiwoden von Siebenb�urgen und zum Stellvertreter des K�onigs ernannt. Im Folgejahr nutzte der Adel die Abwesenheit Andreas�u, der sich auf einem Feldzug in Halitsch befand, um das Gefolge der K�onigin zu �uberfallen, das gerade zu Ehren Leopolds IV. von �Osterreich eine Jagd veranstaltete. Die meisten fremden Adligen wurden erschlagen, die K�onigin regelrecht zerst�uckelt. Berthold und Leopold konnten sich mit Verletzungen retten. Sie wurde in der Zisterzienserabtei Pilisszentkereszt begraben. Fragmente ihres Grabmals in franz�osischer Hochgotik wurden in den Jahren zwischen 1967 und 1980 ausgegraben.
