Later on in her Life
Emma or Hemma was a relative of King Henry the second so she grew up in his palace. When she grew up she married Landgrave William of Friesach. They had two boys Hartwig and Wilhelm. William, her husband, owned a coal mine and the conditions were not very good so two of the workers took revenge for the bad conditions by killing Emma and Williams two sons. William was so depressed that Emma told him to take his mind off of things and to take a pilgrimage to Rome, on the way back he fell ill and died!
After Williams Death
Emma had no family left so she decided to devote her life to God. She had a lot of money from her husband's and son's death's. She decided to give most of it to the poor. She founded many religious houses. Founded a double monastery in Gurk, Austria. Founded 10 churches throughout Austria and founded the Archdiocese of Gurk, Austria and is buried there today.
