HEDWIGE [Avoie] de France ([969][134]-after 1013).

The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Robertum regem et filiam Hadevidem…comitissam Hainonensium" as the children of King Hugues[135]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines also names "soror regis Roberti Hadwidis" as wife of "Rainero comiti de Hainaco, fratri Lamberti comitis de Lovanio"[136]. Sigebert's Chronica records in 977 that "Raginerus" married "Hathuidem filiam Hugonis postea regis"[137]. "Comes Raginerus et Hathuidis coniux" are named in the Gesta of Gembloux Abbey[138].

Her brother gave her the towns of Couvin, Fraisne, Nîme, Eve and Bens [all now in Belgium] as her dowry on her marriage. "Raginero comite…et Hathuidis coniunx eius" donated property at Gion to Gembloux by charter dated to [1013][139].

"Heinricus…Romanorum imperator augustus" took into his protection the abbey of Florennes founded by "Gerardus…in primis meus capellanus postea…Cameracensis episcopus effectus et fratres sui Godefridus et Arnulphus" by charter dated 1018, which refers to earlier donations of property by "comitissa Hawidis, annuentibus filiis suis comite Raginero et Lamberto"[140]. "Chuonradus…Romanorum imperator augustus" confirmed the foundation of Florennes abbey by charter dated 1033, which records among others the donation of "comitissa Hadegundis, annuentibus comite Raginero et Lamberto filiis suis…in Prona sita in pago Haynomensi"[141]. The identity of "comitissa Hawidis/Hadegundis", and therefore the existence of Lambert, supposed brother of Reginar [V] Comte de Hainaut, is not certain. Hedwige, wife of Reginar [IV] Comte de Hainaut, is the most obvious candidate. If this is correct, the donation must have been made after her husband's death in 1013 as he is not named in the document. The other possibility is that the donor was the mother of Reginar [IV] Comte de Hainaut and his brother Lambert [I] Comte de Louvain. However, the name of the wife of their father, Reginar [III] Graf im Maasgau, is recorded elsewhere as Adela (see BRABANT).

m ([996]) REGINAR IV Comte de Hainaut, son of REGINAR [III] Graf im Maasgau & his wife Adela [von Dachsburg] (after 947-1013).

Comte Reginar [IV] & his wife had [three] children:

1. Regnar de Hainaut (d. after 1039, succeeded in 1013 as Comte de Hainaut and Comte de Mons)

2. Lambert (d. after 1013)

3. Beatrix de Hainaut (married firstly Ebles I, Comte de Roucy, secondly Manasses de Ramerupt)

From the Wikipedia page on Hedwig of France

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedwig_of_France

Hedwig of France (c. 970- after 1013), also called Avoise, Hadevide or Haltude, was Countess of Mons. She was the daughter of Hugh Capet, the first King of France, and Adelaide of Aquitaine.

Family

In 996 Hedwig married Rainier IV of Hainaut (947-1013). They had children:

1. Reginar V, Count of Mons. Married Mathilde of Verdun, daughter of Herman, Count of Brabant.

2. Lambert of Mons

3. Beatrix, who married Ebles I, Count of Rheims and Roucy, and Archbishop of Rheims.

4. Ermentrude, died at the age of two or three; buried in the Collegiate Church of Saint Gertrude in Nivelles, Belgium. The burial came to light during an excavation. A lead cross, inscribed with her name and that of her parents, was found in the tomb.

Following the death of her first husband, Hedwig re-married to Hugh de Dagsbourg. She died after 1013.

(Ben M. Angel notes: the assertion that Hedwig remarried is unsupported by any sources. Even French Wikipedia does not assert this remarriage. There is a reference in the FMG material to her mother-in-law being Adela von Dachsburg, but no reference to anyone named Hugh, other than from her own family. Therefore, we can't really presume to know her location of death.)

HEDWIGE [Avoie] de France ([1003]-5 Jun after 1063). Rodolfus Glaber records that "Rainaldus…Landrici comitis filius" married a daughter of King Robert[194].

The Chronici Hugonis Floriacensis names "Adelaidem…Rainaldi comitis Nivernensis uxorem" as the daughter of King Robert and his wife Constance[195]. The Historia Nivernensium Comitum records that the wife of "Renaldum" was "sorori Regis Roberti, filii Hugonis Capitonis"[196].

The Annales Vizeliacenses also specifies that Renaud's wife was the sister not daughter of King Robert II[197]. However, this is chronologically unlikely given that King Robert and his known sisters were born in the 970s, more than twenty years before the earliest possible date of birth of Comte Renaud.

Her marriage was agreed by her father as part of his alliance with Landry Comte de Nevers after capturing Auxerre, which the king gave to his daughter as dowry[198].

"Rainaldus comes Nivernensis" donated property "Belmontis" to Cluny, for the souls of "…uxoris mee Advise…" by charter dated to [1028/40][199]. She founded the abbeys of Crisenon and Issenon.

m (1006, soon after 25 Jan 1016) RENAUD de Nevers, son of LANDRY Comte de Nevers & his wife Mathilde de Bourgogne-Comté (-killed in battle Sainte-Vertu, Yonne 29 May 1040, bur Auxerre, Saint-Germain).

He succeeded his father in 1028 as RENAUD I Comte de Nevers. He was killed in battle against Robert I Duke of Burgundy, his brother-in-law.

Renaud I married (soon after 25 Jan 1016) HEDWIGE [Avoie] de France, daughter of ROBERT II "le Pieux" King of France & his third wife Constance d'Arles [Provence] ([1003]-5 Jun after 1063).

Comte Renaud & his wife had [five] children:

1. Guillaume I de Nevers (d. 20 June 1098, buried at Nevers, St-Etienne, succeeded as Comte de Nevers)

2. Henri de Nevers

3. Guy de Nevers (d. January 26, Unknown year)

4. Robert "Le Bourguignon" de Nevers (d. after 1098, became Seigneur de Sable by his first wife, Seigneur de Craon)

5. Adelaide (married Geoffroy II, Sire de Semur)

From the Wikipedia page for Adela of France, Countess of Nevers:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adela_of_France,_Countess_of_Nevers

Adele of France (ca. 1003-1063), was the daughter of Robert II of France and Constance of Arles. She married Renauld I, Count of Nevers 1000-1040 on 25 Jan. 1016, having issue who would inherit both Nevers and Auxerre.
