Vol. 3: A 1077 usque ad 1209
11th of November, 1208

At the imperial Diet of Frankfurt, King Otto IV is officially recognized as the sole monarch; the king punishes the culprits involved in the assassination of his rival, the late King Philip of Swabia, including Henry IV of Andechs, the margrave of Istria (notices from the contemporary narrative source Cronica Sancti Petri Erfordensis moderna).

Cronica Sancti Petri Erfordensis moderna; the relevant part that is hereby edited was written in 1208 by an anonymous chronicler; the chronicle survives as 16th-century copy:
Göttingen, Niedersächsische Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek, 2° Cod. ms. hist. 88; 16th-century copy.
Oswald Holder-Egger (ed.), “Cronica Sancti Petri Erfordensis moderna,” in Monumenta Erphesfurtensia saeculi XII. XIII. XIV., Monumenta Germaniae historica, Scriptores rerum Germanicarum in usum scholarum separatim editi 42 (Hannover–Leipzig 1899), p. 206.

Ibi Ottonem palatinum de Witelsbach, regis Philippi occisorem, sentencialiter vita et rebus proscripsit, quem postea marscalcus de Calentin iuxta fluvium Danubium occidit.

Although the chronicle does not explicitly mention Margrave Henry IV of Andechs, he was, in fact, stripped of his titles, allods, and fiefs the same way as Count Palatine Otto VIII, and this is confirmed by Otto IV's charter issued to Duke Ludwig of Bavaria just four days following the Diet of Frankfurt (see it edited here), and by Otto IV's two charters issued to Patriarch Wolfger (1209_W5 and 1210_OIV).

For the entire story arc of King Philip's murder and the fate of the Margraviate of Istria during these tumultous times, see the editor's comments in the entry documenting the 1208 regicide.
