About Adelaide of Tours

The name of Robert le Fort's wife is not attested in primary sources. According to some modern scholars she was Adelaide or Adalais, a daughter of Hugh of Tours (and thus an Etichonid) and the widow of Conrad I of Auxerre (died 862), a Welf. Since Robert already had children by 862, Adelaide would have to have been his second wife. French genealogist Christian Settipani has identified the source of this identification as the unreliable twelfth-century Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne de Dijon, which was interpolated into the chronicle of Alberic of Trois-Fontaines.[4] Europäische Stammtafeln has identified Robert's first wife as a certain Agane. Whatever the facts, two of Robert's sons became kings of France: Odo and Robert.

"While there are many conjectures regarding the wife of Robert, her identity and even her name cannot be definitively determined. Robert had two sons, in addition to several speculated daughters whose existence or identity as Robert's daughters cannot be definitively shown:[4]"


  1. Odo of France, King of Western Francia[1]
  2. Robert I of France, King of Western Francia.[1]


She cannot have been a daughter of Louis the Pious & Ermengarde of Hesbaye. Their daughter Adelaide was born about 799 & Ermengarde died in 818. Robert the Strong's son Odo was born in 852, suggesting a mother born between 820-835.
