About Bertha I van Holland, Reine de France

Bertha of Holland (c. 1055–1094) was the first wife and queen of Philip I of France, King of France.

She was the daughter of (Florent I) Floris I, Count of Holland, by his wife Gertrude of Saxony, the daughter of Bernard II, Duke of Saxony. After her father died in 1061, her mother remarried to Robert I, Count of Flanders, called Le Frisian. In 1072 her stepfather concluded a peace treaty with King Philip. As part of the terms of the treaty Bertha was married to Philip.

Nine years passed before Bertha produced the desired son and heir, Louis. Reportedly, her fertility was only restored thanks to the prayers of a hermit, Arnoul, who also named the child. Together, Philip and Bertha had five children:

Constance, married Hugh I of Champagne before 1097 and then, after her divorce, to Bohemund I of Antioch in 1106

Louis (December 1, 1081–August 1, 1137)

Henry (b. 1083) (died young)

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

Filha do conde Florent I da Holanda e de Gertrude de Saxe, era neta materna de Bernardo II, duque da Saxónia. Depois da morte do seu pai em 1061, a sua mãe voltou a casar-se com Roberto I, conde da Flandres. Em 1072, este acordou uma aliança política com Filipe I de França, que incluía o seu casamento com o monarca francês.

Berta só gerou um herdeiro nove anos depois. A lenda popular conta que a sua fertilidade só foi restaurada graças às orações de um eremita, Arnaldo, que deu o nome de Luís à criança.

Em 1092 Filipe enamorou-se de com Bertranda de Monforte, condessa de Anjou, e repudiou Berta alegando consanguinidade, uma vez que eram primos afastados. Aprisionada pelo rei francês na fortaleza de Montreuil-sur-Mer, lá morreria a 30 de Julho de 1094.
