About Nevelong (Nibelung), graaf van Betuwe

1. RUDOLF, son of [NIBELUNG Graaf van Betuwe & his wife --- de Hainaut] .Vanderkindere names "Baldéric I de Liège et Rodolphe" as the two sons of "Névelong" but he does not cite the corresponding primary source[657]. The primary source which confirms Rudolf´s parentage has not yet been identified. However, the transmission of the name Baldric into the family of the Comtes de Looz is consistent with Rudolf being closely related to Nibelung Graaf van Betuwe. Mantelius says that Rudolf was the son of Reginar II Comte de Hainaut, cited in charters until 24 Jan 966 (see the document HAINAUT)[658]. He does not cite the primary source on which he bases this assertion, but his work on the early generations of the Looz family does not inspire confidence as his reconstruction is inconsistent in other details with the primary sources which are quoted in the present document. m ---. The name and origin of Rudolf's wife is not known. However, Vanderkindere suggests that she was ---, daughter of Immo Comte de Hesbaye, to explain the transmission of the name Immo into this family[659], although this cannot be the only explanation for the introduction of the name into the family. Widukind records that "Immo" offered "unicam filiam" to "Ansfrid" as a means of capturing the latter[660].
