About Unroch III de Friuli, marchese di Friulia

Unruoch III or (H)unroch III (c. 840 – 874, after 1 July) was the margrave of Friuli from 863 to 874. He was the eldest surviving son and successor of Eberhard of Friuli. He married Ava, a daughter of Liutfrid of Monza, and left a son Eberhard of Sulichgau, but was succeeded by his brother Berengar. He left a daughter who became a nun in Brescia and was abducted by men of Liutward of Vercelli in 887 and forced to marry one of his relatives.

Unruoch was the son of Eberhard (or Everard), Duke of the March of Friulia, and wife Gisela. He was born c. 840 and died July 5, 874. He succeeded his father in 866 as Unruoch, Marchese di Friulia

It is believed that his wife's name was Ava. According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the wife of Unruoch was the possible daughter of Liutfried. This affiliation is suggested presumably only for onomastic reasons, her name being the same as that of her supposed paternal grandmother. The primary source which confirms the name of Unruoch's wife has not yet been identified.

Unruoch & his wife had one possible child, a daughter. The only proof of this child is found in Annales Fuldenses. This ancient text states that the emperor's men invaded "monasterium puellarum in Brixia civitate" in 887 and abducted "filiam Unruochi comitis, propinquam imperatoris" and married her to "suoque nepoti. The date 887 makes it unlikely to be any ohter Unruoch than this one.
