BIOGRAPHY Otto was born about 1025, the son of Benno, Graf von Northeim of a rich and influential Saxon family. Having distinguished himself in war and peace alike, in 1061 he received the duchy of Bavaria from the Dowager Empress Agnes, widow of Holy Roman Emperor Heinrich III and mother of the child Emperor Heinrich IV. He conspired with Anno, archbishop of Köln, to seize Heinrich IV in 1062, led a successful expedition into Hungary in 1063, and took a prominent part in the empire's government during the king's minority. In 1064 he went to Italy to settle a papal schism, was largely instrumental in securing the banishment from court of Adalbert, archbishop of Bremen, and crossed the Alps in the royal interests on two other occasions. He neglected his duchy, but added to his personal possessions, and in 1069 he shared in two expeditions in the east of Germany. In 1070 Otto was accused by a certain Egino of being privy to a plot to murder the king, and it was decided he should submit to the ordeal of battle with the accuser. He asked for a safe-conduct to and from the place of meeting, and when this was refused he declined to appear and was consequently deprived of Bavaria, while his Saxon estates were plundered. He obtained no support in Bavaria, but raised an army among the Saxons and carried on a campaign of plunder against Heinrich IV until 1071, when he submitted. In the following year he received back his private estates. When the Saxon revolt broke out in 1073 Otto was represented by Bruno, the author of _De bello Saxonico,_ as delivering an inspiring speech to the assembled Saxons at Wormsleben, after which he took command of the insurgents. By the peace of Gerstungen in 1074 Bavaria was restored to him. He participated in the Saxon rising of 1075, after which he was again pardoned and made administrator of Saxony. After the excommunication of Heinrich IV in 1076 Otto attempted to mediate between Heinrich and the Saxons, but when these efforts failed he again placed himself at their head. When Otto's restoration to Bavaria was assured, he assented to the election of Rudolf von Rheinfelden, Herzog von Schwaben, as German king, and by his skill and bravery he inflicted defeats on Heinrich's forces at Mellrichstadt, Flarchheim and Hohenmolsen. He remained in arms against the king until his death on 11 January 1083. Otto is described as a noble, prudent and warlike man, and he possessed great abilities. His repeated pardons showed that Heinrich could not afford to neglect such a powerful personality, and his military talents were repeatedly displayed. By his wife Richenza von Schwaben, daughter of Otto, Herzog von Schwaben, count palatine of Lorraine, and widow of Hermann III, Graf von Werl, he left four sons and three daughters of whom two sons and all his daughters would have progeny. Otto is buried in the Nicolai Chapel in Northeim.
