European Aristocrats Source
Our main source for medieval genealogy in the European Aristocrats Project is the FMG database MEDIEVAL LANDS: A prosopography of medieval European noble and royal families by Charles Cawley,© Foundation for Medieval Genealogy & Charles Cawley, 2000-2015.

  1. Wikipedia's stub (17 Nov 2015), claims that Robert III of Worms, is the son of Robert II.[1] But according to Cawley's (2006) research, there's no contemporary source to support this.[2] However, Cawley (2006), contradicts this in his research for Wiltrud, wife of Robert III.[3]
  2. Notice of resolution of ambiguous parentage: profile edited in accordance with the European Aristocracy user-group. The parents (or lack of parents) decided in consultation with primary sources, especially collected by FMG's Medieval Lands project.

De WORMSGAU-5 and Robertian-7 appear to represent the same person because: based on a whole lineage, this is part of a merge of an entire family branch.

Thuringbert and an unknown wife are attested as his parents here

Since we've taken the decision to carry the French Robertian line back to Wormsgau (or, perhaps more accurately, we haven't decided to resist that fairly dubious filiation), this parentage is probably uncontroversial, except for the perpetual problem of giving a name to a mother whose actual name is unattested.

Are Turincbertus Robertian and Chrotlind Uknown being accepted as parents, or should they be disconnected?
