Hermann V, Margrave of Baden-Baden (died January 16, 1243) ruled Verona and Baden from 1190 until his death. He was the son of Hermann IV and his wife Bertha of T bingen. Married in 1217 to Irmengard, Countess Palatinate by the Rhine (born 1200, died February 24, 1260), their union lasted until Hermann V's death. In the German throne dispute of 1198, Hermann was on the side of King Philip, and from 1208-1211 on the side of Emperor Otto IV. He was a devout follower of Emperor Frederick II. Hermann also founded the cities of Backnang, Pforzheim, and Stuttgart. In 1219 Pforzheim became the seat of power for the Margravate of Baden. In 1218 he abandoned claims to titles in Z hringen, and in 1227 gave up claims in Braunschweig as well.show more
