She and Conrad became progenitors of the Salian dynasty. To build closer ties to the Salian dynasty, King Otto in 947 married her off to Conrad the Red, whom he had installed as Duke of Lorraine three years before. The marriage was not particularly happy.
In 948 Liutgarde gave birth to a son, Otto of Worms.
Her husband accompanied the king on his Italian campaign in 951, however, he fell out with Otto over the agreements made with King Berengar World War II Next year, Duke Conrad finally submitted himself to the authority of King Otto and remained a loyal supporter. He died at the 955 Battle of Lechfeld.
Liutgarde"s brother Liudolf died two years later, while on campaign in Italy. In turn, Liudolf"s son Otto I was vested with the Duchy of Swabia, while Liutgarde"s son Otto of Worms succeeded as Duke of Carinthia in 978.
Upon the death of Emperor Otto III in 1002, Otto of Worms also appeared as a candidate in the royal election but renounced in favour of the Ottonian duke Henry IV of Bavaria, a grandson of Emperor Otto I"s brother Duke Henry I. After Henry"s death, Liutgarde"s great-grandson Conrad II was elected King of the Romans, the first of the Salian dynasty.
