- Duke Heinrich I of Saxony , son and successor of Otto the Illustrious , was elected King of the German Empire (Regnum theutonicum) by the Franks , Saxons and Thuringians in Fritzlar on May 12, succeeding the late King Konrad I of Eastern Franconia . Duke Arnulf I the Evil of Bavaria runs in vain against Heinrich I in the king's election in Fritzlar and (for the time being) complies with the election decision. Duke Burchard II of Swabia , whose duchy was not recognized by King Konrad I, stayed away from the election of a king in Fritzlar. He pursues an independent territorial policy towards the Kingdom of Burgundy . Duke Giselbert I of Lorraine , who wants to hold on to the hereditary kingship of the Carolingians , refrains from being elected by an elective kingship .
- In the battle of Winterthur , King Rudolf II of Hochburgund , who tried to extend his rule into Thurgau , was defeated by Duke Burchard II of Swabia .

- In the Byzantine Empire, the naval leader Romanos Lakapenos disempowered the former empress Zoe Karbonopsina . He married the 13-year-old Emperor Constantine VII with his daughter Helena and took over the reign as a basile opator .
