From the English Wikipedia page on Gisela, daughter of Charlemagne:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gisela,_daughter_of_Charlemagne

Gisela (c. 781 – 808) was a daughter of Charlemagne from his marriage to Hildegard. Little is known of her life. She should not be confused with her aunt Gisela, after whom she was possibly named.

From the French Wikipedia page:

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gis%C3%A8le_(fille_de_Charlemagne)

Gisela ou Gisèle (vers 781 – 808) était une fille de Charlemagne et de son épouse Hildegarde. On lui donna le nom de sa tante, soeur de Charlemagne, et abbesse de Chelles, avec laquelle il ne faut pas la confondre.

Translated: Gisela or Gisele (c. 781-808) was a daughter of Charlemagne and Hildegarde. Charlemagne gave her the same name as her aunt Gisela, his sister and Abbess of Chelles. The two of them should not be confused.

(Note, on her father's page in French, her year of death is listed as c. 814).

It should be noted that none of these show her to be a nun, but rather named after a nun, her aunt (Charlemagne's sister).
