About Francoise d'Aquino


Note: The pedigree that I originally got Francoise de Hohenstauffen from, J.K. Loren, World Connect db=lorenfamily, had her as the 2nd wife of Rinaldo d'Aquino, and mother of Aimone. This did not fit with Turton & SGM, which indicated that Rinaldo only had one wife, who was mother of both Aimone & Sibyl. However, several websites containing books on the life of Thomas Aquinas (see notes under him) indicate that it was Thomas' grandfather (ie. Aimone) who married a sister of Frederick I Barbarossa HRE, although they do not name the grandfather or his wife. None of my normal sources give a wife for Aimone/Aymon.
