    From Wikipedia:

    "During his fight against his half-brother Zbigniew, the Junior Duke of Poland, Boleslaw III Wrymouth, allied himself with Kievan Rus' and Hungary. In order to seal his alliance with the Grand Prince of Kiev, Boleslaw III was betrothed to his eldest daughter Zbyslava. The Primary Chronicle names Zbyslava, daughter of Svyatopolk when recording that she was taken to Poland on 16 November 1102 to marry Boleslaw III. Thus, the marriage took place between that date or in early 1103. They had only one known son, the future Wladyslaw II the Exile, born in 1105, and a daughter (perhaps named Judith), born around 1111 and later wife of Vsevolod Davidovich, Prince of Murom.

    "Her date of death is uncertain. Sources place Zbyslava's death between the years 1109 and 1112. She most likely died by 1114 at the latest, as one year later (in 1115), Boleslaw III married Salomea, daughter of Henry, Count of Berg-Schelklingen."

    Notes:

    Margrave of Austria.

    From Wikipedia:

    Saint Leopold III (German: Luitpold, 1073 – 15 November 1136), known as Leopold the Good, was the Margrave of Austria from 1095 to his death in 1136. He was a member of the House of Babenberg. He was canonized on 6 January 1485 [by Innocent VII] and became the patron saint of Austria, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, and Vienna. His feast day is 15 November. [...]

    Leopold called himself "Princeps Terræ", a reflection of his sense of territorial independence. He was considered a candidate in the election of the Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire in 1125, but declined this honour.

    He is mainly remembered for the development of the country and, in particular, the founding of several monasteries. His most important foundation is Klosterneuburg (1108). According to legend, the Virgin Mary appeared to him and led him to a place where he found the veil of his wife Agnes, who had lost it years earlier. He established the Klosterneuburg Monastery there. He subsequently expanded the settlement to become his residence.

    Leopold also founded the monasteries of Heiligenkreuz, Kleinmariazell and Seitenstetten which developed a territory still largely covered by forest. All of these induced the church to canonize him in 1485.

    Leopold also fostered the development of cities, such as Klosterneuburg, Vienna and Krems. The last one was granted the right to mint but never attained great importance.

    Leopold married Agnes of Germany in 1106. Agnes (daughter of Heinrich IV, Holy Roman Emperor and Bertha of Turin) was born in 1073; died on 24 Sep 1143; was buried in Klosterneuberg, Austria. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 11.  Agnes of Germany was born in 1073 (daughter of Heinrich IV, Holy Roman Emperor and Bertha of Turin); died on 24 Sep 1143; was buried in Klosterneuberg, Austria.

    Also called Agnes of Waiblingen; Agnes von Franken.
