About Prangilda of Modena

Wikipedia entry on Manfred I of Turin:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Manfred I or Maginfred (died 1000) was the second Margrave of Turin from 977. He inherited the county of Auriate and the vast marca Arduinica in the Susa Valley from his father Arduin Glaber. In his reign, the marca extended from the Alps to the Ligurian Sea and the Po Valley. Under him, Pavia became a mercantile city.[1] He also controlled the road between Genoa and Marseilles.[2]

Manfred married Prangarda, daughter of Adalbert Atto of Canossa. He was succeeded by his eldest son Ulric Manfred. His second son Adalric became bishop of Asti and he left another son named Odo with fiefdoms in Candia Canavese and Arneis del Roero.

MedLands says that "The primary source which confirms the name and origin of the wife of Marchese Manfredo has not yet been identified." and gives no dates for her birth or death, but claims they were married before March 8, 991. Only the oldest of her six children is listed with a birth date (992).
