Conrad I

Conrad I., Duke of Franconia, and grandson of the Emperor Arnulf, was elected to the imperial throne in 911, Otto of Saxony having declined the honour. But Henry the Fowler, Otto's son, intrigued against the new Kaiser, and breaking out into open hostility, defeated him near Merseburg in 915. Conrad died childless in 918, and on his deathbed recommended his rival for the vacant throne.
