Biography

Otto V der Lange (the Tall) was the second son of Otto III, Markgraf von Brandenburg of the Askanier (Ascanian) dynasty and his wife Božena of Bohemia and he was probably born sometime in the period 1245-1253.[1]

He presumably succeeded as Markgraf (Margrave) von Brandenburg on the death of his father on 9 October 1267, ruling jointly with his brothers and first cousins. Otto V's elder brother Johann III died of wounds received in a tournament on 8 April 1268[2][3] and Otto became the head of this branch of the Askanier Brandenburg family. He was also guardian or regent for Wenzel II, King of Bohemia from 1278-1283.[4]

Otto V died of leprosy on 23 or 24 July 1298 and was buried in Lehnin.[1] Others maintain the day of his death is unknown and his burial in Lehnin uncertain. (Im J. 1298 ist Otto der Lange gestorben: sein Todestag steht nicht unzweifelhaft fest. Im Kloster Lehnin soll er bestattet worden sein. - Otto der Lange died in 1298: the day of his death is not certain without a doubt. He is said to have been buried in the Lehnin monastery.)[5]

He had married on 22 October 1268 at Freyburg an der Unstrut, Jutta von Henneberg,[6] daughter of Hermann I, Graf von Henneberg. She succeeded to Coburg and Schmalkalden in 1291, and died before 13 September 1295.

They had seven children;

  1. Beatrix, born 1270, married twice, both Princes of Silesia;
  2. Mechtild, also married a Silesian Prince;
  3. Kunigunde, entered the church;
  4. Otto, who died before his father;
  5. Albrecht;
  6. Hermann II, succeeded his father in Brandenburg;
  7. Jutta, married Rudolf I, Duke of Saxe-Wittenberg
