About Otton, duc de Basse-Lotharingie

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otto_II_van_Neder-Lotharingen

Otto van Neder-Lotharingen (970 - 1012) was een zoon van hertog Karel van Neder-Lotharingen en van een dochter van Robert van Vermandois, graaf van Meaux en Troyes. Hij was hertog van Neder-Lotharingen van 991 tot 1012, in opvolging van zijn vader. Hij huwde, maar had als laatste Karolinger geen zonen, wel een dochter: Ermengarde, die huwde met Albert I van Namen. Met Otto sterft de mannelijke lijn van de Karolingen uit.


Otto (c. 970–1012) was the duke of Lower Lorraine from 993 until his death. He was the son of Charles, son of King Louis IV, and his first wife, a daughter of Robert de Vermandois, count of Meaux and Troyes.

When his father left the duchy to fight Hugh Capet for the throne of France in 987, he became regent in Lower Lorraine when still apparently under twenty. Charles was defeated definitively in 991 and died two years later a prisoner in Orléans. Otto then succeeded into the full dukeship. In 1002, at the death of the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, he was one of the loyal nobles who accompanied his body from Paterno to Aachen. According to the Chronica of Sigebert de Gembloux, he died in 1006, but he seems to be alive as late as 1012, when Count Godfrey II of Verdun succeeded to the duchy.

His wife is unknown and had no known issue.

Otto was one of the last legitimate male-line descendant of Charlemagne and thus the Carolingian dynasty. His cousin, Arnulf, archbishop of Rheims, was illegitimate. The counts of Vermandois were direct male-line descendants of Charlemagne through Bernard, king of Italy, illegitimate son of Pepin of Italy. Although Otto was seemingly the last legitimate Carolingian, there remained illegitimate male lines, possibly also others than just the Vermandois.
