Judith von Baden († 1162)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Judith von Baden († 1162 ) was the daughter of the Baden margrave Hermann II and his wife Judith von Backnang .

As was customary for the descendants of a ruling margrave at the time, she was dubbed “margravine”. She may have married Duke Ulrich I of Carinthia († 1144); however, his wife could also have been a sister whose name was not known.

She died in 1162 and was buried in a stone sarcophagus in the Augustine Chapel in the cloister of the Backnang Abbey . The tomb was opened in 1513 at the instigation of Christoph I of Baden , provided with a label and moved to the church choir . In 1929 the sarcophagus was moved to the crypt.
