Biography

Gisela (or Gisele) is one of the four daughters of Ludwig 'the German', King of the East Franks (Germany) of the Carolingian dynasty, and his wife, Emma. She is the third daughter named in the Libri confraternitatum Sancti Galli [1]and was perhaps born about 0833, given that her siblings were born in the period 0828 - 0839,[2] but she could have been born at anytime in the 0830s or even the early 0840s.

There appear to be no other primary sources that name her[1] and it is possible she died at a young age, or if she survived entered a convent as did her three sisters.[3]

Unverified husband and child(ren)

There are a number of theories to explain the appearance of typical Carolingian names such as Judith, Ludwig, Gisela and Arnulf in the Bavarian Luitpoldinger family, and one of these involves a supposed marriage between Gisela, and Count Berthold (of Swabia), and mother by him of Kunigunde,[4] who married firstly Luitpold, Markgraf in Bavaria, and secondly Konrad I, King of Germany. However there are a number of other ways the Luitpolding family could have been connected to the Carolingians.[5]
