About Geirlaug Adèle Hrólfsdóttir de Normandie, d'Aquitaine

Gerloc Adela Hrólfsdóttir de Normandie (c.897 - 962) was the daughter of Gange-Hrolfr 'Rollo' & Poppa De Valois.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerloc

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/NORMANDY.htm#_Toc148955357

Her original name was Geirlaug or Gerloc, but she was baptised in Rouen as Adela (or Adèle) in 912. She was the sister of Duke William Longsword.

In 935, she married William or Guillaume Towhead, the future count of Poitou and duke of Aquitaine. She gave him two children before dying on 14 October 962:

   * William IV of Aquitaine
   * Adelaide of Aquitaine, wife of Hugh Capet

--------------------

GERLOC (-after 969).

Guillaume de Jumièges names "Guillaume et…Gerloc" as children of Rollo and Poppa, in a later passage records her marriage to "Guillaume comte de Poitou"[66].

Robert of Torigny also names "Willermum Longum Spatam et Gerloch" as children of "Rollo dux Northmannorum" and Poppa[67].

The Chronico Richardi Pictavensis records that "Heblus…Pictavorum Comes et Dux Aquitaniæ duxit Adelam filiam Rolli Rothomagensis"[68], although this is presumably an error for Guillaume son of Ebles. She adopted the name ADELA when baptised. "Guillelmi comitis, Adeleidis comitisse" subscribed a charter recording a donation to Cluny dated [963][69]. Lothaire King of France granted her 14 Oct 962 the right to dispose of extensive property in Poitiers, la Cour de Faye, this grant effectively putting an end to the long dispute between her husband and the family of Hugues "Capet". She used the property to found the Monastery of Sainte-Trinité[70].

m (935) GUILLAUME I "Tête d'Etoupe" Comte de Poitou, son of EBLES "Mancer" Comte de Poitou, Duke of Aquitaine & his first wife Aremburga ([900]-3 Apr 963). He succeeded in 959 as GUILLAUME III Duke of Aquitaine.

m (935) ADELA [Gerloc] de Normandie, daughter of ROBERT I [Rollo] Comte [de Normandie] & his [second] wife Popa [de Bayeux] (-after 969).

Guillaume de Jumièges names "Guillaume et…Gerloc" as children of Rollo and Poppa, in a later passage recording her marriage to "Guillaume comte de Poitou"[318]. Robert of Torigny also names "Willermum Longum Spatam et Gerloch" as children of "Rollo dux Northmannorum" and Poppa[319]. The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes records the marriage of "filius Ranulfi Eblus" and "Adelam filiam Rosi Rotomagensis"[320].

The Chronico Richardi Pictavensis also records that "Heblus…Pictavorum Comes et Dux Aquitaniæ duxit Adelam filiam Rolli Rothomagensis"[321]. This information is contradicted by other sources, is difficult to sustain from a chronological point of view, and is presumably in error.

She adopted the name ADELA when baptised. "Guillelmi comitis, Adeleidis comitisse" subscribed a charter recording a donation to Cluny dated [963][322].

On 14 Oct 962, Lothaire King of France granted her the right to dispose of extensive property in Poitiers, la Cour de Faye, effectively putting an end to the long dispute between her husband and the family of Hugues "Capet".

She used the property to found the Monastery of Sainte-Trinité[323]. "Vuillelmus dux Aquitanorum" donated property to Saint-Jean d'Angély for the soul of "…matre mea Addela…" by charter dated [971][324].

Duke Guillaume III & his wife had two children:

1. GUILLAUME de Poitou ([937]-Saint-Maixent [end 995/early 996], bur Abbaye de Saint-Maixent[325], succeeded as Guillaume IV "Fier-a-Braz" Duke of Aquitaine, Guillaume II Comte de Poitou, m. Emma de Blois in 968)

2. ADELAIS de Poitou ([950/55]-[1004], parentage not completely certain, m. Hugues des Francs, first King of France, OUR ANCESTOR - presumably.)

From the French Wikipedia page on Adela de Normandie (morte en 962):

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad%C3%A8le_de_Normandie_(morte_en_962)

Adèle de Normandie est la fille de Rollon le Marcheur et de Poppa de Bayeux, et la sœur du duc normand Guillaume Longue-Épée. Née sous le nom scandinave de Gerloc (Vieux Norrois : Geirlaug), elle est baptisée à Rouen sous le nom d’Adèle en 912 ; en 935 elle est donnée pour épouse à Guillaume, futur comte de Poitiers et futur duc d'Aquitaine, alors âgé de dix ans. Elle meurt le 14 octobre 962.

Elle a deux enfants :

1. le duc Guillaume Fierabrace (vers 935 - 993) ;

2. la princesse Adélaïde d'Aquitaine, épouse du premier roi capétien Hugues Capet.

In English:

Adela of Normandy was the daughter of Rollon "le Marcheur" ("the Walker") and Poppa of Bayeux, sister of the Duke of Normandy Guillaume "Long-Epee" ("Longsword"). Born under the Scandinavian name Gerloc (Old Norse: Geirlaug), she was baptized in Rouen using the name Adele in 912. In 935, she was given in marriage to Guillaume, the future Comte de Poitou and Duke of Aquitaine, then at age 10 (obviously incorrect, probably a betrothal age). She died on 14 October 962.

She had two children:

1. Duke William "Fierabrace" (c. 935-993)

2. Princess Adelaide of Aquitaine, wife of the first Capetian King Hugh Capet.
