About Ermengarde de Bourgogne, comtesse de Dijon, Duchesse de Bourgogne

Ermengard was the wife of Gilbert Duc of Burgundy. For many years, she has been believed to have been the daughter of Duke Richard "the Justiciar" of Burgundy; however, recent researchers have cast doubts upon that claim. Please see below.

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/BURGUNDY.htm

ERMENGARD. Ermengardis, wife of Giselbert, has been accepted as the daughter of Duke Richard since Du Chesne in 1625[35]. More recently this affiliation has been challenged, in particular because she is not mentioned in her mother's will[36]. In addition, if it is correct that Giselbert's mother was the daughter of King Boson (see BURGUNDIAN NOBILITY), she would have been her husband's first cousin.

m GISELBERT, son of MANASSES Comte de Vergy & his wife --- (-956). He became GISELBERT Duke of Burgundy, after Raoul and Hugues "le Noir" ceded him their rights to Burgundy in [936]. After his death, Lothaire King of France took direct control of his part of Burgundy[37].]

Duke Giselbert & his wife had two children:

1. ADELAIS [Wera] ([930/35]-). "Gislebertus…comes Heduensis" granted property to "suo fidele Guitbaldus…nec non eius coniuge Rutrudis" by charter dated 11 Dec 934, signed by "Gisleberti comitis, Ermengardi, Adaledis filiam eorum…"[65]. The Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne de Dijon records the death in 956 of "Gislebertus comes Burgundionum", names "filia Leudegarde", "aliam…filiam…Werram", and the latter's marriage to "Robertus comes Trecassinorum"[66]. "Trecassine urbis comitem Robertum" donated land to "Gratianum abbatem monasterii Sancti Petri Dervensis" by charter dated 6 Aug 959, signed by "Adelais comitisse, Erberti filii eorum, Walterii vicecomitis"[67]. It is unclear why these two sources refer to the wife of Comte Robert by different names, as "Adelais comitisse" who signed the 959 charter must have been the same person as the wife of Robert named in 956 because the former document also refers to "Erberti filii eorum". It is possible that the reference to "Werram" is a transcription error as no other reference to this name has so far been found in other contemporary French sources. Her birth date range is estimated from her own daughter's estimated birth date of [950]. m (before 950) ROBERT Comte de Meaux, son of HERIBERT II Comte de Vermandois & his wife Adela [Capet] (-after 19 Jun 966). He became Comte de Troyes in 956 on the death of his father-in-law, by right of his wife.

2. [LIETGARDIS] (-after 958). A manuscript, whose attribution to Orderic Vitalis is disputed, refers to the wife of Duke Otto as daughter of Giselbert without giving her name[68]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines also refers to the wife of "Otto [filius Hugo rex]…dux Burgundie" as "filiam Gisleberti" without naming her[69]. The Historia Francorum Senonensis refers to "filiam Gisleberti ducis Burgundiæ" as the wife of "Ottoni, filio Hugonis Magni", when recording his succession to his father-in-law's dukedom[70]. The Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne de Dijon records the death in 956 of "Gislebertus comes Burgundionum", names "filia Leudegarde", "aliam…filiam…Werram", and the latter's marriage to "Robertus comes Trecassinorum"[71], which appears to indicate the order of birth of the two daughters. It is assumed that Lietgardis was the name of the wife of Duke Eudes, although this is not without doubt in view of the uncertainty relating to the name of the other daughter being "Werram" (see above). The Annales Nivernenses record that in 958 "Rodulfus Divioni comes" captured the château of Beaune from "seniori sui Optonis" and kidnapped his wife "filiam Gisleberti", but that the castle was recaptured by Otton "Kal Maias"[72]. Bouchard states that Comte Rodolphe married Lietgardis, although the basis for this is not known[73]. m ([Easter] 955) OTTON [Eudes], son of HUGUES "le Grand" Capet Duc des Francs & his third wife Hedwig of Saxony ([945]-22/23 Feb 965, bur Saint-Germain d’Auxerre). Comte d’Auxerre. On the death of his father-in-law in 956, Lothaire King of France installed Eudes in Burgundy at Beaune. He was installed as EUDES Duke of Burgundy in 960[74].

3. [ADELAIS (-after 18 Oct 984). It has been suggested that Adelais Ctss de Chalon was the sister of "Wera" Ctss de Meaux[75] but this is far from certain. Another theory is proposed in a 17th century source which refers to "Wera" as "Adelaide-Wera" and at the same time suggests that Adelais Ctss de Chalon was her daughter[76]. However, this would mean that both wives of Geoffroy I Comte d'Anjou were sisters which, if correct, would probably have been mentioned in contemporary sources. Another suggestion is that Adelais Ctss de Chalon was the same person as Wera-Adelais Ctss de Meaux. However, this is even more unlikely chronologically considering the estimated birth date of Wera-Adelais and the fact that Adelais de Chalon gave birth to at least one child by her second husband, Geoffroy Comte d'Anjou, after her marriage in 979. It would also mean that Comte Geoffroy married, as his second wife, his first wife's mother, which seems unlikely. m firstly [as his second wife,] LAMBERT Comte de Chalon, son of ROBERT Vicomte de Dijon & his wife Ingeltrude (-22 Feb 979). m secondly (2 or 9 Mar 979) as his second wife, GEOFFROY I “Grisegonelle” Comte d'Anjou, son of FOULQUES II Comte d’Anjou & his first wife Gerberge [de Maine] (-21 Jul 987).]

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

Daughter [of Lothair I and Ermentrude of Tours] ([825/30]-). The Gesta Francorum records that "Gisalbertus, vassallus Karoli" abducted "filiam Hlotharii imperatoris" and took her to Aquitaine where they were married[21]. The Annales Fuldenses also record that "Gisalbertus vassallus Karoli" abducted "filiam Hlotharii imperatoris" and married her in Aquitaine in 846[22]. The Annales Mettenses also date this event in 846[23]. Settipani states that the emperor recognised the marriage in 849[24]. Rösch says that this daughter is often named Ermengarde in secondary sources but that there is no contemporary proof that this is correct[25]. m (Aquitaine 846) GISELBERT Graf von Maasgau, son of --- (-after 14 Jun 877)
