There is no evidence Hughes ever married a woman named Hermengastin and no proof she ever existed.

Here is the Henry II project page which is often the best place to see what can be said for these generations.

Given the dates I think this is a conflation of Hugues de France, the oldest son of Robert II, and his younger brother Robert Ier de Bourgogne, who was married for the second time to Ermengarde d'Anjou.

This Hermengastin should be unlinked and merged with Anjou-3.
