Judith of Bavaria

Judith (925 – soon after 29 June 985), was Duchess of Bavaria. She was the eldest daughter of Arnulf the Bad of Bavaria and traditionally Judith of Friuli, although modern scholars point to Judith of Sulichgau.

She was the wife of Henry I of Bavaria, and through this marriage the Duchy of Bavaria entered the growing Kingdom of Germany. Their son was Henry the Wrangler, for whom she acted as regent after Henry's death in 955. She made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and, upon returning in 974, retired to the Niedermünster in Regensburg, where she is buried beside her husband. Their other son, Brunon, Count of Brunswick, married and had descendants.
