  • Brucker, Pierre-Paul. L'Alsace et l'Eglise au temps du Pape Saint Léon IX (Bruno d'Eguisheim). Tome Premier (Paris, France: Retaux-Bray, 1889) p. 299. Berswinde, born about 1640, married Etichon during the reign of Childeric II (660-673) and their daughter Sainte Odile was born circa 660. Brucker gives a good chronology in the book, and cites the chronicle of Ebersheim and a handwritten notice from the 9th century formerly preserved at the abbey of Saint-Grégoire, and which make Berswinde the niece of Saint Léger d'Autun (sister of Saint Léger was born circa 620 and Berswinde circa 640 or slightly after).
