About Adelaide von Oltigen, heiress von Oltigen

CONRAD, son of RUDOLF II King of Upper Burgundy & his wife Berta of Swabia ([922/25]-Vienne 19 Oct 993, bur Vienne, cathédrale Saint-Maurice). He is named "Chuonradus rex filio Rodulfi" in his charter dated 23 Apr 943[166]. He succeeded his father in 937 as CONRAD I "le Pacifique" King of Burgundy. The Aymari Rivalli De Allobrogibus records the death "XIV Kal Nov" of "regis Conradi" and his burial at Vienne[167]. m firstly ADELANE, daughter of --- ([935/40]-[23 Mar 963/[964]). "Adelane regine" is named in the charter of "Chuonradus rex" dated 23 Mar 963[168] but is not mentioned in his charter dated 8 Apr 962[169]. This suggests that she married after the latter date, but this would leave insufficient time for the birth of her supposed two children. Her birth date range is estimated based on the estimated birth date range of her daughter Gisela. Her origin is not known but Jackman suggests[170] that Adela was sister of "Konrad Duke of Alsace".

King Conrad I & his first wife had two children: 1. CONRAD [Cuno] (-after 10 Aug 966). "Chuonradus…rex et uxor sua Mattilt regina et filii eius Cuono" signed a charter dated 10 Aug 966[182]. As Cuno was probably older than an infant at the date of this charter, it is likely that he was born from his father´s first marriage, assuming the date of King Conrad´s second marriage is estimated correctly above. According to Carutti, Conrad was born from his father´s second marriage but he cites no primary source on which this assertion is based[183]. 2. GISELA ([955/60]-21 Jul 1007). Herimannus names "Gisela, Counradi regis Burgundiæ filia" as wife of "Heinricus dux Baioariæ" and mother of Emperor Heinrich II[184]. Her birth date range is estimated from her having given birth to her eldest son in [976], which indicates that she must have been King Conrad's daughter by his first marriage, although no direct proof has yet been found to confirm that this is correct. Thietmar records that Gisela was exiled to Merseburg after the trial of her husband in 978[185]. Many contemporary sources confuse Gisela with her niece of the same name, daughter of her half-sister Gerberga and the latter's second husband. For example, the Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon names "sororem regis [Rodulfi Burgundie] Gislam" as wife of "Chonradum" and mother of "tertium Henricum"[186]. It is not known why this report is repeated so frequently in other chronicles, for simple chronology demonstrates that it cannot be correct. According to the Preface of Vitæ Heinrici et Cunegundis Imperatores, "Gisila imperatrix, mater sancti Heinrici imperatoris obit VII Kal Martii"[187]. Thietmar records the death of "our king's…mother…Gisela" on 21 Jul and her burial at Regensburg, dated to 1007 from the context[188]. The necrology of Merseburg records the death "21 Jul" of "domna Gisela mater Heinrici imperatoris"[189]. The necrology of Magdeburg records the death "21 Jul" of "Gisla filia Chuonradi regis"[190]. m (before 972) HEINRICH II "der Zänker" Duke of Bavaria, son of HEINRICH I Duke of Bavaria [Germany] & his wife Judith of Bavaria [Liutpoldinger] (951-Gandersheim 28 Aug 995, bur Gandersheim Stiftskirche[191]).
