Otto of Freisingen near Laodikeia on the Lykos

As the army of Otto of Freisingen passed Laodikeia on the Lykos, it lost one of its bravest commanders, the count Bernard, in circumstances resembling the recent death of Bernard, count of Plotzkau. The Byzantine military commander of Laodikeia, who should have led count Bernard to safety from the mountains, led him straight into a Turkish ambush, where he and most of his men were killed. The Byzantine shared the spoils with the Turks 
Byzantine commander (strategos?) of Laodikeia on the Lykos (Anonymus 994)
  • He should have led the heroic Bernard 103 and his men out of the trackless mountains, but instead led them straight into a Turkish ambush; Bernard and most of his men were killed, while the rest escaped by hiding; the Byzantine commander divided the spoils with the Turks (:) Odo of Deuil 112
Bernard, German count killed near Laodikeia on the Lykos (Bernard 104)
  • Like his namesake Bernard 103, he behaved heroically but died tragically during the march of Otto 101 near Laodikeia on the Lykos; he was betrayed by Anonymus 994, who instead of saving him led him straight into a Turkish ambush (:) Odo of Deuil 112
Otto, bishop of Freising, brother of Conrad III (Otto 101)
  • As he was passing Laodikeia on the Lykos, he lost a major commander, Bernard 104, to Byzantine treachery; Anonymus 994, who should have led him to safety, took him straight to a Turkish ambush, where Bernard and most of his men were killed (:) Odo of Deuil 112
