Ben M. Angel notes:

The Foundation for Medieval Genealogy shows six children, but none of them are named Adelaide:

Emperor Louis I & his first wife had six children:

1. LOTHAIRE [Lothar] (795-Kloster Prüm 29 Sep 855, bur Kloster Prüm). King of Lotharingia.

2. PEPIN ([797]-Poitiers 13 Dec 838, bur Poitiers, église collégiale de Sainte-Radégonde). King of Aquitaine.

3. HROTRUD [Rotrude] ([800]-).

4. BERTA .

5. HILDEGARD ([802/04]-857, or maybe after [23 Aug 860]).

6. LOUIS ([806]-Frankfurt-am-Main 28 Aug 876, bur Kloster Lorsch).

English Wikipedia shows six children as well, but with Adelaide in the list:

By his first wife, Ermengarde of Hesbaye (married ca 794-98), he had three sons and three daughters:

1. Lothair (795–855), king of Middle Francia

2. Pepin (797–838), king of Aquitaine

3. Adelaide (b. c. 799)

4. Rotrude (b. 800), married Gerard

5. Hildegard (or Matilda) (b. c. 802), married Gerard, Count of Auvergne

6. Louis the German (c. 805–875), king of East Francia

French Wikipedia shows only five children for Louis and Ermengarde:

1. Louis dit le Germanique (v.806-876), roi de Germanie (843-876). ép. en 827 Emma (cf. Welfs)

2. Hildegarde (v. 803 - v. 857), abbesse de l'abbaye Saint-Jean de Laon.

3. Lothaire Ier (795-† 855), empereur d'Occident (840-855). ép. en 821 Ermengarde de Tours (cf. Étichonides)

4. Pépin Ier d'Aquitaine (797-838), roi d'Aquitaine (817-838). ép. Rigarde

5. Rotrude (?-?).

and German Wikipedia shows the same five as the French Wikipedia page shows:

Erste Ehe: Ludwig heiratete 794 Irmingard (780–818), Tochter des Grafen Ingram.

1. Lothar I. (795–855), Kaiser

2. Pippin I. (803–838), König von Aquitanien

3. Rotrud, * wohl 800

4. Hildegard, * wohl 802/804, † nach Oktober 841, wohl am 23. August 860, Äbtissin von Notre-Dame (wohl in Laon)

5. Ludwig „der Deutsche“ (806–876), König des ostfränkischen Reiches

This profile apparently conformed to the English Wikipedia page, which showed her as Adelaide. However, the English Wikipedia page does not identify any sources for the children that were listed. The Foundation for Medieval Genealogy does, and names her Berta, citing Settipani:

BERTA . Settipani cites charters which name Berta as the daughter of Emperor Louis[203].


[203] Settipani (1993), p. 255 footnote 446, citing MGH Dipl Carol, no. 48, p. 143, 101, 241, 197, p. 353, spur. 34, p. 441.

As such, I've renamed her Berta to conform to sourced documentation.
