Notities over GISELBERT VON MASSGAU II

FamilySearch has his parents as Giselbert I von Maasgau and Bertswinda de Lorraine of Hesbaye/Bertswinda Haspengau

Gilbert (Giselbert), Count of Maasgau, was a vassal of Charles the Bald. He is generally described as count of Maasgau on the lower Meuse. This is because the primary document that refers to him calls him "comes Mansuariorum". Mansuaria has however been proposed to be an early Frankish gau in the same general region, probably part of the later Hesbaye.

Gilbert's background is not known. The similarity of his apparent son's name to the name "Ragnar" has been used as an argument to suggest a Viking connection. Another possibility is that he was related to a man named Reginar, son of Meginhere (a nobleman from the court of Charlemagne).

Gilbert had served King Lothair I, but defected to Lothair's half-brother Charles the Bald during the civil war of 840-843. Gilbert's lands eventually came under the rule of Lothair and his rights as count were revoked. In 846 Gilbert abducted an unnamed daughter of Lothair and his wife Ermengarde of Tours. He took her to Aquitaine and married her in an attempt to force Lothair to reinstate him. Rösch suggests that Gilbert's wife was named Ermengarde, but there is no conclusive evidence that this is correct.

Children may include:

Reginar I (c. 850-916). There is no primary source unequivocally stating that Reginar was Gilbert's son.
Albert is mentioned as a brother of Reginar, probably Reginar I or a relative.
