The Notitiæ Fundationis Monasterii Bosonis-Villæ names (in order) "Adalbertus, Gerhardus, Cuonradus, Adalbero, Beatrix, Cuono, Huoda abbatissa, Azelinus, Ida, Adeleth" as children of "Gerhardus comes [et] Gisela".

Emperor Heinrich III appointed him as ADALBERT Duke of Upper Lotharingia in early 1047, after confiscating the duchy from Godefroi II "le Barbu" Duke of Upper Lotharingia. Duke Adalbert was killed fighting the forces of ex-Duke Godefroi. No indication has been found of the name of Duke Adalbert's wife, assuming that he was married at all. Szabolcs de Vajay has confirmed the incorrectness of his earlier proposition that Duke Adalbert's wife was Clémence de Foix, and that the Duke was the father of Etiennette (wife of Guillaume Comte de Bourgogne) and Clémence (wife of Conrad Comte de Luxembourg). The Kalendarium Sanctæ Mariæ Virdunensis records the death "III Id Nov" of "fuit prœlium ducis Alberti". m ---. The name of Adalbert's wife is not known. Adalbert & his wife had [one possible child]:

If Alberic correctly identifies the wife of Konrad as Ctss de Longwy et de Castres, it is likely that she was the daughter of Adalbert Duke of Lower Lotharingia who was also Comte de Longwy, but no primary source which confirms that this is correct has yet been found. If this is correct, it is likely that Ermensende was Konrad's first wife and the mother of his daughter Ermensende, who is recorded as heiress of Longwy. m [as his first wife,] KONRAD Comte de Luxembourg, son of GISELBERT Graf von Salm, Comte de Luxembourg & his wife --- (-in Palestine 8 Aug 1086, bur Luxembourg Münster Abbey).

Adalbert, Duke of Lorraine
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Adalbert (1000 – 11 November 1048, Thuin) was the Duke of Upper Lorraine from 1047 until his death. He was the son of Gerard de Bouzonville (Gerhard II), Count of Metz, and Gisela (Gisella).
Gothelo I, Duke of Lower Lorraine and Upper Lorraine, died in 1044 and was succeeded by his son Godfrey II in Upper Lorraine but was refused Lower Lorraine. Irritated, to say the least, Godfrey rebelled in that same year and devastated his suzerain's lands in Lower Lorraine. He was soon defeated and Adalbert named in his place in Upper Lorraine. Godfrey, however, continued to fight for all Lorraine and Adalbert died in battle against him at Thuin on 11 November 1148. He had no known children, and Henry immediately nominated his brother Gerhard to succeed him.

1. ^ In 1960, Szabolcs de Vajay hypothesized that Adalbert was count of Longwy and father-in-law of William VII of Aquitaine and William I, Count of Burgundy. (Annales de Bourgogne, Vol 32 (1960) 258-261), and has been followed in this by Frederick Lewis Weis, Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists Who Came to America Before 1700, Line 144-22. However, de Vajay subsequently published an unqualified retraction of his hypothesis in "Parlons encore d'Etiennette" in Onomastioque et Parente dans l'Occident medieval (Prosopographica et Genealogica, no.3), K. S. B. Keats-Rohan and C. Settipani, eds. (2000), pp. 2-6.

It is often erroneously stated that Ermesinde was a daughter of Adalbert, Duke of Lorraine. This hypothesis, resulting from the misinterpretation of two medieval documents, has since been retracted by the scholar who originally suggested it fr:Adalbert de Lorraine#Des erreurs d'historiens : Longwy et sa famille.
