About Cunigunda, countess of Trèves & Ardennes



a) CUNIGONDE ([895]-after [930/40]). Her parentage and first marriage are indicated by the charter dated to [915] under which Charles III “le Simple” King of the West Franks donated the abbeys of Hastières and Saint-Rombaut to Liège Saint-Lambert, granting the enjoyment for life to "comes Windricus...uxoris eius...Cunegundis et unius filiorum ipsorum...nostri nepotis Adelberonis"[323]. Her first and second marriages are confirmed by the Vita Iohannis Gorziensis which names "episcopo…Adalberone" (her son by her first husband) and "vitrico…eius Richizone" (her second husband)[324]. Her parentage is confirmed more specifically because the mother of Siegfried Count of Luxembourg is named "Cynigund", daughter of "Irmindrud" daughter of Louis II "le Bègue" King of the West Franks, in an 11th century genealogy which traces the ancestry of Siegfried's daughter Empress Kunigund[325]. The family relationship between Count Siegfried and the descendants of Wigerich [III] is confirmed by a reference in one of Gerbert's letters to Siegfried being patruus of the Wigerich's grandson Gozelo[326]. However, Siegfried’s birth is estimated to [930/40] which indicates that he could not have been the son either of Wigerich or Cunigonde's second husband Richwin. The only explanation which is consistent with all the sources is that Cunigonde married for a third time after the death of her second husband and that she was the mother of Siegfried by her third marriage. This necessitates a somewhat broad interpretation of “patruus” in Gerbert. The identity of her supposed third husband has not been ascertained.

Cunégonde de France

Cunégonde, née vers 893, morte après 923, était la fille d'Ermentrude, une fille de Louis II le Bègue, roi de France. L'identité de son père n'a pas été transmise à notre époque et aucune étude actuelle n'a permis de l'identifier.

Elle épousa en 909 Wigéric (890 - 919), comte palatin de Lotharingie, et eut :

1) Frédéric Ier († 978), qui fut comte de Bar, puis duc de Haute-Lotharingie

2) Adalbéron Ier († 962), évêque de Metz

3) Gilbert († 964), comte en Ardennes

4) Sigebert, cité en 942.

5) Liutgarde, qui épousa Adalbert comte de Metz, puis Eberhard IV comte de Nordgau

6) Gothelon, comte de Bidgau, († 942), marié à Uda de Metz et père de Godefroy le captif, comte de Verdun.

7) Sigefroy, comte de Luxembourg.

Elle se remaria vers 922 Ricuin, comte de Verdun († 923).

General Notes:

Det är inte säkert att hon var mor till Gozelo, men det är mycket troligt.

Kunigunde gift Wigeric i Aachen innan 910. (Wigeric Aachen dog före 919.)
