Radbot Graf auf der Habsburg's wife

+2 votes
Radbot, the builder of the Habsburg castle had one wife Ita, sometimes spelled Itha. Which of the two we have (Wigeric-10 and Metz-158) if any should we use as the target for a merge, given that her origin is questionable?

Ida Wigeric is mentioned as a falsely attributed child of Frederic Duke of Upper Lorraine, here http://home.earthlink.net/~henryproject/hproject/prov/frede001.htm presumably because the primary sources cited are late ones?

And the whole Metz family line looks like it needs to be reviewed as it appears to have a number of problems.

Perhaps going with Unknown is a better alternative?

The Metz family does not look good. I had a good laugh with the locations on Metz-160, but the unmerged match that has been pending since 2014 is less funny. That's a clear duplicate with a different set of parents.

Manfred Hiebl has their family following mostly Hlawitschka, Die Anfänge des Hauses Habsburg-Lothringen. Genealogische Studien zur Geschichte Lothringens und des Reiches im 9.,10. und 11. Jahrhundert, Saarbrücken 1969. Pretty much the same as FMG with the exception of Ita, as daughter of Adalbert II Graf im Saargau.

Thanks Helmut, I did see that.  Do we then use Metz as her LNAB but mark her parents as uncertain?  Though to complicate issues Manfred Hiebl has that family under the name Matfriede dynasty.
