  Research Notes:

The Annalista Saxo names "Bertam filiam Ottonis marchionis de Italia et Adelheidis que soror erat comitis qui agnominatus est de Monte Bardonis in Italia et Immule seu Irmingardis" as wife of King Heinrich. Her husband proposed to repudiate her in 1069, but withdrew his demand. The dispute was finally settled in 1077 when Empress Bertha's mother intervened to prevent any repudiation in return for mediating between the emperor and Pope Gregory VII in Canossa.

The Annales Sancti Diibodi record the death in 1087 of "Bertha imperatrix" and her burial "apud Moguntiam". The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeran records the death "VI Kal Jan" of "Berhta imperatrix". The necrology of Speyer records the death "VI Kal Jan" of "Bertha imperatrix". 1
