MEDIEVAL LANDS

[ADELAIS de Poitou ([950/55]-[1004]).

There is uncertainty about this origin of Adelais, wife of Hugues Capet, which is stated directly only in the 11th century Translation de Saint-Magloire[348]. This Poitevin origin is also suggested by Richer who records that King Robert "ob nepotem suum Wilelmum" besieged "in Aquitania…Hildebertum"[349]. It is assumed that such a relationship between King Robert and Duke Guillaume would be through the king's mother as no family connection through his father has been established. The Chronicle of Ademar de Chabannes, on the other hand, recounts the dispute between "Dux Aquitanorum Willelmus" and King Hugues, as well as the subsequent peace agreed between the parties in 990, without mentioning that the duke was the king's brother-in-law[350], all the more surprising if the Poitevin origin is correct as Ademar concentrates on Poitevin affairs and also includes genealogical details in his narrative.

Helgaud's Vita Roberti Regis names "Rex Francorum Rotbertus…patre Hugone, matre Adhelaide", specifying that "ab Ausonis partibus descenderat"[351]. Settipani equates "Ausonia" with Rome or Italy[352], although no other reference to an Italian origin for Adelais has yet been identified.

The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the mother of "rex Francorum Robertus" as "superiorem regum Anglie soror"[353] but it is difficult to see to whom this could refer or how it could be correct.

The paucity of references in contemporary sources to the wife of Hugues Capet and her origin contrasts sharply with the frequent references to his mother and to the wives of his son King Robert I. This suggests that the background of Queen Adelais may have been obscure and that her family had little political influence at the time, although this would be surprising as her husband was already enjoying a position of some power at the Carolingian court at the time of his marriage. Maybe her family was prominent when the couple married but suffered a subsequent decline by the time her husband was elected king. Nevertheless, an Aquitainian marriage would have fitted the political circumstances of the time.

After several decades of dispute between the Capet and Poitou families, a permanent peace appears to have been established from about the time the marriage took place[354].

The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XVII Kal Jul" of "Adelaidis regina"[355].

m ([968]) HUGUES Duc des Francs, ([940]-Les Juifs, near Prasville, Eure-et-Loire 24 Oct 996, bur église de l'Abbaye royale de Saint-Denis, King of France).

King Hugues & his wife had three children:

1. Gisela de France (b. c.970, m. Hugues before 987)

2. Hedwige (Avoie) de France (b. c.969, d. after 1013,m. c.996 to Reginar IV, Comte de Hainaut)

3. Robert II de France (b. 27 March 972 in Orleans, d. 20 July 1031 in Chateau de Melun, buried Eglise de l'Abbaye royale de St-Denis, succeeded as King of France, OUR ANCESTOR).

WIKIPEDIA (Eng)

Adele or Adelaide of Aquitaine (or Adelaide of Poitiers) (c. 945 or 952 – 1004) was the daughter of William III, Duke of Aquitaine and Geirlaug Adele of Normandy, daughter of Rollo, Duke of Normandy.

Her father used her as security for a truce with Hugh Capet, whom she married in 970. In 987, after the death of Louis V, the last Carolingian king of France, Hugh was elected the new king with Adelaide as queen. They were proclaimed at Noyon and blessed at Reims. They were the founders of the Capetian dynasty of France.
