Birth and Parents

Weis reports her parents as Count of Morvois, by his wife Eve of Roussillon [1]


Her marriage to Heribert I de Vermandois (born about 850, died 6 Nov between 900-907) is disputed. Weis [1] affirms it.

Instead, Cawley reports that contemporary sources name Heribert's wife as Lietgardis -- a woman of unknown origins. [2]

Therefore Bertha de Morvois is not linked as the wife of Heribert and no longer shown as the mother of his children.Day-1904 09:13, 19 May 2017 (EDT)


She died 15 June 923 in Vermandois. [3]

She has been delinked from Heribert and Heribert's children.

Based on Stewart Baldwin's Henry Project, I propose to de-link Bertha as wife of Heribert. A link will be retained in the narrative.

Web: Netherlands Genealogie Online indicates a birth date of 30 Aug 0845, which is more believable considering the mother's age. They also list Herbert I as her spouse...the other facts all seem to fit.
