About Eberhard II, count in Nordgau

MedLands

MedLands does not include him as a son of Hugh the Timid or as father of Eberhard III.

Use of the names Hugo and Eberhard suggest that the Grafen im Nordgau were descended from the family of the Dukes in Alsace (Chapter 1) but the precise descent has not been traced in the primary sources which have so far been consulted in the preparation of this document. The use of the name "Matfried" in this family during the later 10th and early 11th centuries suggests a connection with the "Matfriedinger" family who were counts of Metz and, later, dukes of Upper Lotharingia. An indication that this may be correct is found in the reference in the Annalista Saxo to Bruno von Egisheim being "Conradi imperatoris consobrinus" when recording his election as Pope Leo IX[84], Emperor Konrad's mother being the sister of Gerhard and Adalbert Counts of Metz [Matfriedinger]. Too little information is known about the wives of the Nordgau counts to speculate sensibly about where the connection might be.
