Turton does not have this generation. However it does fit with Ancestral Roots' statement that Emma de Provence was great granddaughter of Boso II, d. 965/7. Todd A Farmerie, who commented on this line, states that the existence of Rotbaud & his wife Emildis de Gevaudan is a theory of Vajay. Todd doesn't hold with the theory, preferring the more traditional solution, which matches Turton.
Rotbald II was the son of Boso 
His brother Guillaume (William) was born about 955. A 963 charter names Guillaume first, while a 965 charter names Rotbald first. Thus, while there is doubt about birth order, both were born about 955.
"Comte de Provence, charters showing that both he and his brother Guillaume were recorded as counts during the same period, although it is not known whether this was a joint countship or whether there was a geographical split between their jurisdictions. 
Rotbold II (also Rothbold, Rotbald, Rodbald, Roubaud, or Rotbaud) (died 1014 or 1015) was the Count and Margrave of Provence from 1008 to his death. 
By charter dated April 970, Count Rotbald ("Rotbaldus comes") consented to the donation by his brother Guillaume ("Wilelmus comes Provincie et coniunx mea Arsinna") to Saint-Victor de Marseille. 
Rotbald II married first, before 975/80, Ermengarde, parents unknown. In a charter dated 22 April 1015, their daughter ""Ema comitissa filia Rotboldi comitis et Hermengardæ uxoris eius, matris meæ" donated property " to the priory of Courrenz in Provence.
Rotbald married Ermengard. 
Rotbald II married secondly, Emilde (Eimildis), also parents unknown. A charter dated 993/1002 signed by "Rotbaldus comes et uxor sua Eimildis, Adalax comitissa et filius suus Willelmus…" confirms this marriage.
Rotbold II of Provence married Emilde of Gévaudan daughter of Stephen, Viscount of Gévaudan. 
Some scholars believe that "Emilde" and "Ermengarde" refer to the same person. Cawley presents a detailed discussion of the pros and cons of this possibility at his site, while not reaching a conclusion.
By charter dated 28 August 990, "Willelmus comes" donated property to Cluny. The donation was signed by "Rodbaldus comes, Adalaix comitissa, Wilelmus comes et filius eius Wilelmus."
By charter dated 1992, subscribed by "Dominus Rotbaldus comes" (Lord Rotbaldus, Count), William/Willelmus/Guillaume with his consort Adelaix restored property to the abbey of Saint-Césaire d´Arles.
He died 1014 or 1015
His widow Ermengard married Rudolf III of Burgundy c. 1016 and she died c. 28 Aug. 1057.
