"Beatrice was the only surviving child of Renaud III, Count of Burgundy and Agatha of Lorraine. As the only child of her father, she was the heir of the County of Burgundy. At the death of her father in 1148, she inherited the vast County of Burgundy and became countess palatine. As such, she was one of the most desired brides in France, and a marriage was suggested to Emperor Frederick I.

Wedding Frederick I likely suggested the marriage because the County of Burgundy would give him an alternative to the Brenner Pass and a strategically valuable position against Milan, and because of the additional troops of Burgundian knights available for his war.[1]

The wedding between Beatrice and Frederick took on 9 June 1156 at Würzburg.[2] After the wedding, the Bishop of Trier anointed Beatrice queen.

The poem Carmen de gestis Frederici I imperatoris in Lombardia, written about 1162, describes Beatrice upon her wedding day:

"Venus did not have this virgin's beauty, Minerva did not have her brilliant mind And Juno did not have her wealth. There never was another except God's mother Mary And Beatrice is so happy she excels her."
