About Louis II, king of Provence

Not successfully identified (Ref: Britain's Royal Families; The Complete Genealogy, Alison Weir, ISBN 978-0-7126-4286-6)

LUDWIG (-after 929). He is named "Ludowico nepote [meo]" in the grant of "Adeleydis comitissa" to Cluny dated 14 Jun 929[117]. Graf im Thurgau 928.

[m [firstly] ---. If it is correct that Ludwig married one of the daughters of Edward King of Wessex, she could not have been the mother of his supposed daughter Willa.]

[m [secondly] EADGIFU, daughter of EDWARD I King of Wessex & his third wife Eadgifu ([921/23]-). This marriage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[118] but seems chronologically if King Rudolf's children were born between 880 and 900. According to William of Malmesbury, Eadgifu married "Louis Prince of Aquitaine"[119], who has not been identified.
Another possibility is that Ludwig Graf im Thurgau was the "Duke near the Alps" who, according to William of Malmesbury[117], married Ælfgifu, daughter of Edward King King of Wessex & his second wife Ælfleda. ]

Louis & his wife had [two] children: 

*a) HEINRICH . The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. 943/63. Comte de Vaud.

  • b) [WILLA ([905/07]-after [967/86]). ... ... ... m (before 927) HUGUES de Troyes, son of [WARNARIUS [Garnier] Vicomte de Sens & his wife Teutberga d'Arles] ([900/05]-before 948).]
