The Staufer family proved itself a great dynasty in the 12th and 13th centuries, as it produced several Roman-German kings and emperors. The most famous of these was Duke Frederick I, also called Barbarossa for the redness of his beard. Yet, it was his son, Henry VI, who was crowned and succeeded in expanding the family's empire.
