About Aélis d'Alsace
[This is about her son Robert I and his presumed two wives "Aelis" and Beatrice]
Robert was married twice. Through his first wife, Aelis, a descendant of Charlemagne, he had two daughters. Each married powerful lay vassals of their father: Emma of France (894–935) to Rudolph, Duke of Burgundy, and Hildebranda (895–931) to Herbert II of Vermandois.
According to the Wikipedia entry on Beatrice de Vermandois, Robert I's second wife:
Beatrice married Robert in 895 (roughly age 15) after Aelis/Adele du Maine died. Given that Adele de France was born also around 895, it is likely that the childbirth caused Robert's first wife's death. However, there are no records indicating much of anything about Aelis/Adele du Maine's life. Therefore, she was never Queen of France, merely the Duchess of France (wife of the Dux Francorum).

Note -- Not the wife of Robert of France, Count of Anjou, or at least not the mother of his children. Wikipedia: The name of Robert's wife is not attested in primary sources. According to some modern scholars she was Adelaide or Adalais, a daughter of Hugh of Tours and the widow of Conrad I of Auxerre (died 862), a Welf. Since Robert already had children by 862, Adelaide would have to have been his second wife. French genealogist Christian Settipani has identified the source of this identification as the unreliable twelfth-century Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne de Dijon. The Europäische Stammtafeln has identified Robert's first wife as a certain Agane. Whatever the facts, two of Robert's sons became kings of France: Odo and Robert.
