Notice of resolution of ambiguous parentage

The parents listed for this individual are speculative and may not be based on sound genealogical research. Sources to prove or disprove this ancestry are needed. Please contact the Profile Manager or leave information on the bulletin board.

This profile has been edited with regard to parents in accordance with principles established by the European Aristocracy user-group. Medieval genealogy is not an exact science, and digital collaborative genealogy must therefore occasionally make choices where old-fashioned print-scholarship did not have to. The parents (or lack of parents) of the person described in this profile were decided upon in consultation with primary sources especially as collected in the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy’s Medieval Lands project.

Parentage unknown, and almost certainly unknowable, the efforts of speculative genealogists notwithstanding. In particular, parentage by Theoderich III has been removed.


This profile is under the management of the European Aristocracy user-group, according to the principles established for historically-significant ancestors. All WikiTree users are most welcome to participate in that group--please follow the link for more information.
