Disputed Parents

Based on a slim piece of documentation, some secondary sources speculate that her father may have been Adelchis I, Count of Parma and Duke of Spoleto, while others dispute this.[4]

Other theories further confuse Engelberga's identity, so ultimately her parentage is still unknown.[5]

Also note that the idea that her mother is Emma Welf, is based on the work of Mathieu (2000), which assumes a strict interpretation of particular words in a certain reference by Emperor Karl II.[6][7]

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.
