About Amalrada von Ringelheim

From the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy page on Saxony:

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/SAXONY.htm#Mathildedied968

AMELRADA ([7 Sep] ----).

A list of names in the Libri Confraternitatum Sancti Galli sets out (in order) "Thieterich, Reginhilt, *, Oto, Amalrat, Perectheid, Friderun, Pia", immediately after a list of family members of Heinrich I King of Germany and his wife, which no doubt refers to the latter's parents and sisters[48]. The Vita Domni Deoderici Episcopi Maioris names "Amelrada" as wife of "comite Everardo", sister of "Mathildis reginæ…filiæ Thiadrici ducis", and she and her husband as parents of "Deodericum ex pago Saxoniæ Hamalant"[49].

The necrology of Gorze records the death "VII Id Sep" of "Amarrada comitissa"[50].

m EBERHARD, son of [EBERHARD Graf im Keldachgau und im Bonngau [Ezzonen] & his wife --- (-[3 Sep] before 964). Graf in der Drenthe und im Salland.

From the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy page on Holland:

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/HOLLAND.htm#EberhardDrenthedied964

EBERHARD, son of [EBERHARD Graf von Bonn & his wife ---] (-[3 Sep] before 964). Graaf in pagus Forestensis, Graaf van Drenthe, Graaf van Salland, married AMALRADA, daughter of Graf THEODERICH [Immedinger] & his wife Reginlind --- ([7 Sep] ----).

Eberhard & his wife had two children:

1. DIETRICH ([929]-Metz 7 Sep 984, bur Metz St Vincent. Thietmar records that Dietrich Bishop of Metz "belonged to that group of corrupt men who, in return for obscuring the truth, had accepted one thousand pounds of gold and silver from the archbishop").

2. A son, married a daughter of the Comte de Huy, had 5 children.

Noted on the same page:

The influence of Saxon nobility extended well into the Frisian counties, as shown by the Vita Domni Deoderici Episcopi Maioris which names "comite Everardo" and his wife Amelrada (who was sister of Mathilde Queen of Germany) as parents of "Deodericum ex pago Saxoniæ Hamalant"[18], the descendants of his supposed brother being counts in the county of Teisterbant in the 10th century. The name "Dirk", used by seven counts of Holland, also suggests a Saxon connection in its Latin form "Theodericus", a name which was closely connected with the Saxon paternal ancestors of Heinrich I King of Germany.
