Douglas Richardson  provides one line of descent from Charlemagne to William the Conqueror and four lines of descent from Charlemagne to William's wife Maud.
Both the date and place of birth of Adele of Troyes are unknown. 
Wikipedia shows her birth year as about 934 without further citation.  However, the date is consistent with other dates in her life.
Her father was Robert, count of Meaux and Troyes and her mother was Adélaïde alias Werra, daughter of Giselbert, count of Chalon and Troyes.  Sometimes she is falsely shown as the daughter of Heribert II, who died in 943, count of Vermandois, who was actually her grandfather.  
She was of the Carolingian Noble Family. Her father was Robert of Vermandois and her mother was Adelaide-Werra de Chalon
Adele was a daughter of Robert of Vermandois, Count of Meaux and Troyes, and Adelaide de Chalon.
Adele of Meaux (c. 934 – c. 982) was a French noblewoman. She was Countess of Chalon and later Countess of Anjou.
About 965 she married Geoffroi I Grisegonelle, Count of Anjou (958/960-987), Count of Chalon (979-987), son of Foulques II the Good, Count of Anjoy, by his wife Gerberge. 
[From now on, applies to Geoffrey's first wife]
Adele of Meaux (b. bef. , d. 974 after 6 Mar), was a daughter of Robert of Vermandois. She is often confused with Adelaide of Châlons, who was also known as Adelaide-Werra, Adelaide of Burgundy, and/or possibly Adelais de Vergy.
m.1 (before 965) GEOFFROY I “Grisegonelle” Comte d'Anjou, son of FOULQUES II Comte d’Anjou & his first wife Gerberge [de Maine] (-21 Jul 987). Adela died and Geoffroy married, second, (2 or 9 Mar 979) ADELAIS, widow of LAMBERT Comte de Chalon. (They had one child: Maurice.)fmg.ac
She married Geoffroy I Grisegonelle, d. 987, count of Anjou.
She married Geoffrey I of Anjou (c. 938/940 – July 21, 987). 
Adèle was still living 6 March 974, the date of a charter in which she donated when she donated her hereditary domains to Saint-Aubin in Angers. Witnesses included, among others, her husband Geoffroy, sons Foulques and Geoffroy, and count Heribert. Her death would have occurred after 974. Place of death is unknown. 
Richardson adds that Adele was deceased by 979, when her husband then married another Adele, widow of Lambert I, Count of Chalon-sur-Saone (died 22 Feb 978). They had one son, Maurice. Geoffroi I, Count of Anjou, was slain in battle at Marcon (near Chateau-du-Loir) 21 July 987, and was buried at Saint-Martin de Tours. His widow, the second Adele, was living in 999. 
She died about 982 and was buried in the St. Aubin Abbey, Angers.
Adele died in 982. 
Adele and Geoffroi had two sons and two daughters 
Gerberge, d. aft. 988, m. Guillaume IV, count of Angoulême.

- the two Mauds are the same, their father is Lambert and their mother should be his wife, Adelaide Unknown-313332

- Aelis and Elizabeth are unaccounted for. They aren't Adele's, or Geoffrey's, or Adelaide's, or Lambert's. Elizabeth was a very unusual name before AD 1000.

Still some issues
1 - The first block in the bio needs moving to the other wife
2 - She gave away her land on 6 Mar 974 and was dead by 979, when Geoffrey remarried
3 - Gottfried died after 6 Mar 974 (witnessed the deed)
4 - the Wikipedia page is all confused and needs a danger warning attached to the link.
5 - worth noting that Henry Project and Richardson both call her Adele de Troyes, though this might just be a legacy of old confusion with her mother
6 - the name Chalons invites confusion, since the future 2nd wife was Countess of Chalons the whole time
7 - should only be 4 kids not 9
8 - the Uncertain flags and dispute notice can go now, as they're just leftovers from previous confusion
