Archbishopric Salzburg, Adalbert III von Böhmen, 1168 - 1177 and 1183 - 1200 A.D.
Adalbert, son of King Ladislas II of Bohemia and Gertrude of Austria; grand-son of Emperor Henry IV, was elected Archbishop of Salzburg, Austria in 1168. The position included secular power as well as ecclesiastical. The Emperor, offended when Adalbert exercised his authority without formal approval, briefly replaced Adalbert as bishop. To gain allies Adalbert unlawfully gave away Church property; his priests petitioned for a new election, but Pope Alexander III supported him. Through a series of political maneuvers, Adalbert managed to keep his see until formally deposed in May 1174. He was re-elected on 19 Sep 1183, this time with the emperor's support. He held the see until his death.
