About Eadgifu

The "Dictionary of Royal Lineage" has her as the wife of Louis the Blind, but most modern genealogists disagree. The identity of her husband is still a matter of debate. Other possibilities postulated: Conrad the Peaceful of Burgundy ; Boleslaw IIII of Bohemia; Eberhard IV of Nordgau; Elbus, the son of a Duke of Aquitaine; and Alberic Majois Narbonne.

EADGIFU ([921/23]-).  The Book of Hyde names "sanctam Edburgam Deo dictam...[et] Edgivam" as the two daughters of King Eadweard by his second wife "Edgiva", specifying that the latter married "Aquitanorum principi Lodowyco"[1713].  

According to William of Malmesbury, Eadgifu married "Louis Prince of Aquitaine", in a later passage specifying that he was a descendant of Charlemagne[1714]. Her husband has not been identified.

According to Europäische Stammtafeln[1715], "Edgifa, daughter of Edward I King of England" was the wife of Ludwig Graf im Thurgau, son of Rudolf I King of Upper Burgundy & his wife Willa. This seems chronologically implausible as King Rudolf's children were probably born between 880 and 900.

If Graf Ludwig married a daughter of King Eadweard, it is more likely that she was Eadgifu's older half-sister Ælfgifu (see above).
