  General Notes:

KONRAD (12 Feb 1074-Florence 27 Jul 1101, bur Florence). He was installed as KONRAD Duke of Lower Lotharingia by his father in 1076, on the death of Godefroi III "le Bossu" Duke of Lower Lotharingia, with Albert III Comte de Namur as vice-duke. His father crowned him associate king of Germany at Aachen 30 May 1087, at which time the duchy of Lower Lotharingia was conferred on Godefroi de Bouillon [Boulogne]. He rebelled against his father in 1093 and allied himself with Pope Urban II and Matilda di Canossa. He was crowned king of Italy in Milan by Archbishop Anselm, although he is also referred to as king of Lombardy. His father excluded him from the succession in 1098, and declared him deposed, although by that time Emperor Heinrich had returned to Germany and appears to have had little influence on affairs in Italy. The Annales Sancti Diibodi record the death in 1101 of "Cuonradus filius imperatoris" in Italy and his burial "in civitate Florentia".

m (Pisa 1095) CONSTANZA of Sicily, daughter of ROGER I Count of Sicily & [his second wife Eremburge de Mortain] (-after Jul 1101). The Chronicon of Bernold records the marriage in 1095 "in Tusciam Pisas" of "Chonradus rex" and "filiam Rogerii ducis de Sicilia, adhuc admodum parvulum cum inaudita pecunia" but does not name the bride. Malaterra records the marriage in 1095 in Pisa of "Corradum…Henrici filium" and "filiam Siculorum Calabriensium comite" but also does not name her. Houben says "we think the bride was called Maximilla" but cites no source to support this. The primary source which names her has not yet been identified. She returned to southern Italy after her husband's death. 1
