Stewart Baldwin writes:

Regnier was present at Heristal on 19 January 916 [Parisot (1898), 617; Wampach (1935), 170 (#146)]. He is mentioned by Flodoard as a brother of Giselbert in the year 924, at which time he already had a son, who was given as a hostage to his brother-in-law Bérenger ["Interea Giselbertum Berengarius, qui sororem ipsius uxorem habebat, comprehendit, quemque, oblatis obsidibus sibi pro eo filiis Ragenarii, fratris ipsius Gisleberti, dimisit. Idem vero Gislebertus dimissus, terram Berengarii Ragenariique, fratris sui, et Isaac comitis depraedationsibus plurimus vastat." Flodoard, Annales, s.a. 924, 21-2].

Count of Hainaut, (modern Dutch Graaf van Henegouwen) under the rule of his brother Gilbert. He may be the first of his family to have had this title, or at least to have been referred to this way already in a similar period. Stewart Baldwin writes: "Regnier II is called count of Hainaut by the life of abbot Gerard of Brogne ["... Raginero Hainoensi comite ..." Vita Gerardi abbatis Broniensis, MGH SS 15: 666]"

Hainault-71 and Reginar-59 appear to represent the same person because: Hainault-71 represents Reginar of Hainaut, son of Reginar and Alberada. It is a duplicate of Reginar-59

What is the source for the wife? MEDLANDS specifically says that there is speculation only about the wife or wives.

Maybe Hainaut is acceptable for this branch of the Reginars, but this raises the question of whether to create a sub-category with that name also.

1. Dynasty name is Reginar (=Reinier, but should we standardize spelling?).

2. Should Reginar be LNAB? Seems so

3. Also, should we could start a sub-category for the Hainaut branch of the dynasty starting with this person? But in his case maybe make it CLN?
