The Continuatio Admuntensis records the marriage of Emperor Friedrich in 1156 to "Beatricem filiam Reginoldi comitis" after repudiating "filia Diepoldi marchionis".
She succeeded her father in [1148/49] as BEATRIX Ctss [Palatine] de Bourgogne, under the regency of her uncle Guillaume. The latter attempted to usurp her titles but was defeated by Emperor Friedrich I, who later married Béatrix. One of Sigebert’s continuators states, when recording her marriage, that “filiam comitis Burgundionum Reinaldi” had been imprisoned by “patruus suus comes Wilhelmus” after her father died. She was crowned empress at St Peter's, Rome 1 Aug 1167 by Pope Pascal III, and crowned as Queen of Burgundy at Vienne in Aug 1178. 1
