On this day in 1369 Margaret, Countess of Tyrol (b. 1318) died.
As her father’s three marriages had produced no male heirs, he reached an agreement with Holy Roman Emperor Louis IV in 1330 that enabled Margaret to succeed him in his Carinthian and Tyrolean estates.
In the same year, she was married at the age of twelve to eight-year-old John Henry of Luxembourg, a younger son of King John of Bohemia and brother of the future Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV.
King John was himself responsible for deposing Margaret’s father from the Bohemian throne in 1310.
