About Hersuinda von Bayern

According to the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy page on Bavaria:

http://fmg.ac/Projects/MedLands/BAVARIA.htm#OdiloA

There is no documented daughter of Theodo V named Ragnetrude or similar. The time frame would possibly fit if there was some documentation of her existing as sister of Theodebert (m. Elinhast, d. 724 in Dietbercht), Grimoald (joint Duke of Bavaria, m. Pillitrude, d. 728), Theodoald (m. Waltrude, then Pilitrude, d. after 718), and unknown male (m. Suanachildis as first husband, with Charles Martel being second husband).

Reviewing the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy page on Swabia:

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

There is no documentation on the name of the wife of Gottfried, Duke of Alamannia. This is the confirmed information on Gottfried and his family:

Chapter 1, Dukes of Alamannia:

7. GOTTFRIED (-709). Duke of Alamannia.

"Godafridus dux" donated "Biberburg um vicum ad Neccarum" to the monastery of St Gallen by charter dated 708[15].

Gottfried & his wife had three children:

1) LANTFRID (-730, 741 or 751). The Annales Petaviani record that Charles "Martel" travelled to "Suavis contra Lantfridum" in 730[17]. "Lanfrido filio Godofrido" produced the first recorded Swabian Law code[18]. Duke of Alamannia. The Annales Alammanici record the death of "Lantfridus" in 730[19]. The Annales Moselleni record the death in 751 of "Lantfridus"[20].

Possible sources for Ragnetrude/Regine:

According to the English Wikipedia page for Theodo of Bavaria:

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

Marriage and issue

He married Regintrude of Austrasia, daughter of Dagobert I and Regintrude. They had the following:

1. Daughter of Theodo, married Godefroy, Duke of Alamannia

He also married Folchiade of Salzeburg. They had the following:

2. Theodbert

3. Theobald

4. Tassilo

5. Grimoald

Since naming her Ragnetrude was probably a mix-up with her mother, the name has since been removed, at least until a proper source for her name can be found. - Ben M. Angel -------------------- Died : eft 699 -------------------- Died : eft 699
