From the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy page on France Capetian Kings:

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/CAPET.htm#Huguesdied956A

Hugues Le Grand married thirdly ([9 May/14 Sep] 937) HEDWIG of Germany, daughter of HEINRICH I King of Germany & his second wife Mathilde [Immedinger] ([922]-9 Jan [958 or after 965]).

"Hugues abbé de Saint-Martin" donated "son alleu de Lachy…dans le comté de Meaux", inherited from "comte Aledramnus", to Tours Saint-Martin by charter dated 14 Sep 937 which names "sa femme Havis"[96].

Rodulfus Glauber names "sororem [=Otto] Haduidem" as wife of "Hugo dux Francorum cognomento Magnus"[97]. Flodoard refers to "sororem Othonis regis Transfhenensis, filiam Heinrici" as the wife of "Hugo princeps, filius Roberti", without naming her, recording their marriage in 938[98]. Flodoard also refers to "relicta Hugonis" as "amita Lotharius rex"[99].

The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "V Id Jan" of "Hadhuidis comitissa"[100].

Duke Hugues & his third wife had four children:

1. Hugues (b. c.940, d. 24 October 996 at Villa Les Juifs, near Prasville, Eure-et-Loire, buried Eglise de l'Abbaye Royale de St-Denis, First King of France)

2. Emma (b. c.943, d. after 18 March 968, married as first wife Richard I Sans Peur Comte de Normandie)

3. Otton (Eudes, b. c.945, d. 23 February 965, buried St-Germain d'Auxerre, installed by Lothaire as Duke of Burgundy)

4. Eudes (Odo, b. c.948, d. 15 October 1002 at Chateau de Poilly-sur-Saone, buried Auxerre, adopted the name of Henri when becoming Duke of Burgundy, apparently different from previous brother)

In English:

Hadwig von Sachsen, Duchess of Francia (b. 914-920, d. 959) was a daughter of German King Henry I and his second wife Mathilde (daughter of Graf Theodoric von Rheingelheim), a sister of Holy Roman Emperor Otto I, and mother of Hugh Capet, founder of the Capetian dynasty.

Hadwig was younger than her brother Otto (b. 912) and her sister Gerberga von Sachsen, but older than her brother Heinrich (b. 921). In 937/938, she married Hugh The Great, Duke of the Franks. Her son, Hugh Capet, entered the world in 940 and become King of France in 987. Her other sons were Odo (Duke of Burgundy 956-965), and Odo-Henri (Duke of Burgundy 965-1001).

Upon the death of Hugh the Great in 956, her son Hugh Capet had not yet come of age, so her brother Archbishop Bruno of Cologne took over his regency. Bruno was guardian of his nephew Lothair in 954 (son of his sister Gerberga), and was a very influential person in France.

After her brother Otto I came to power, an alliance and marriage was arranged with Hugh the Great in 936. Her son, Hugh Capet, was crowned King of France in 987.
