- Wildelphe (Von Thuringia) Thüringen's Profile
- Family Tree & Genealogy Tools
Categories: Disputed Existence.
"Mention of the likes of Hoger and Erpes, Wedelphus, and Meerwig (Merovech) as Thuringian rulers is sheer fantasy." (Angel, n.d.)
Wedelphus and rulers before him are not historically correct.
See Basinas of the Thuringii (d. after 464) m. Basina (Lady) UNKNOWN (sometimes referred to as "Menia"; parents/origins UNKNOWN). No proven issue... chronology for brothers Berthar, Baderic and Hermanfrid is off... they have UNKNOWN origins. (See Cawley, 2006).
For Weldelphus (fictional father of Basina, who's origins are UNKNOWN), see:
- French, G.R. (1841). The ancestry of Her Majesty Queen Victoria and of His Royal Highness Prince Albert, (pp. 281). Web. http://tinyurl.com/4k32757
Gregory of Tours, "The History of the Franks"
- should not be taken as prime authority
- does mention Thuringians a bit.
"Letters of St. Boniface", missionary,
- lack of info on Turingii
- Boniface worked when the Turingii were subjugated by the Franks.
- appears to repeat the 19th century mistakes of Gustav Kosinna
- subjects reader to pure fantasy.
