About Erlindis, abdesse van Egmont en Bennebrock

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

HERLINDE . The Chronologia Johannes de Beke names (in order) "Arnulfum comitem, Egbertum Treverensem archiepiscopum ac Arlindam puellam" as the children of Count Dirk II & his wife[281]. The Annales Egmundani name "Erlinda soror eius [=Ekbertus filius Theoderici II comitis] monocula"[282]. The Vita Sancti Adalberti Egmondani names "eidem comiti [=Theoderici iunioris] filia Erlinda"[283]. Abbess of Egmont, later of Bennsbrock. The reference in the Annales Egmundani to her being one-eyed provides an interesting corroboration for the theory that children with disabilities were assigned to careers in the church.
