RATHER (-killed in battle Fontenoy 25 Jun 841). Comte de Limoges. The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes records that "Ruterium comitem" received "Lemovicæ", after "Emeno [comes Pictavinus]" was expelled from Poitou. The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Ebroinus…Pictavensis episcopo Flateram…Reginardus comes, Gerardus itidem comes et gener quondam Pippini regis [et] Ratharius…comes Pippini gener" [in 839]. If this is correct, the two counts were much older than their wives. Some authors have therefore suggested that "brothers-in-law" is a more accurate translation of generes and that the two counts were therefore married to two daughters of Emperor Louis I. Settipani argues that this is incompatible with the context in which the term is used in the Vita. m --- d'Aquitaine, daughter of PEPIN I King of Aquitaine [Carolingian] & his wife Ringardis.
