About Boson III "the Old", count of Arles

Boso the Elder From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boso the Elder was a Frank from the Bosonid-dynasty. He was married to Engeltrude and died around 855. His family, the Bosonids, were a dynasty of Franks that produced counts, dukes, abbots and bishops during the Carolingian Age. Eventually Boso's daughter Teutberga married Lothair II and granddaughter Richildis married into the royal Carolingian family through her marriage with Charles the Bald. Boso had another daughter, possibly called Richildis, who married Bivin of Gorze, and two sons. The oldest was called Boso. His youngest child was Hucbert.
