From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adalbero of Eppenstein (980 – November 29, 1039) was Duke of Carinthia from 1011 or 1012. He succeeded the Salian Conrad I.

After political altercations with the Salians and an unsuccessful rebellion against the Holy Roman Emperor Conrad II, Adalbero was forced to renounce all his offices and fiefdoms, but Egilbert, Bishop of Freising, a councillor to Conrad's son Henry, advised the princes of Germany and Henry himself, who had been elected king, to not recognise the deposition. Conrad was required to perform much begging before Henry consented to the act and Adalbero was removed. He died in exile in 1039.

Adalbero was married to Beatrix (died February 23 after 1125), a daughter of Herman II, Duke of Swabia, a Conradine.
