Mistress of Pepin
Gender:
Female
Birth:
circa 777
Immediate Family:
Partner of "Pépin" Carloman, King of Italy
Mother of Bernard, King of Lombardy; Adula; Theodrate d'Italie; Bertraide / Berthais and Gundrada d'Italia

CARLOMAN [Pepin], son of CHARLES I King of the Franks & his second wife Hildegard (777-Milan 8 Jul 810, bur Verona, San Zeno Maggiore).¬â€  "Pippinus" is named, and his parentage recorded, in the Gesta Mettensium, which specifies that he was his parents' second son[616].¬â€  He was baptised "PEPIN" in Rome 15 Apr 781 by Pope Hadrian, Settipani commenting that his name was changed from Carloman[617] but the primary source which identifies him by this name has not so far been identified.¬â€  He was crowned PEPIN King of Italy 15 Apr 781 at Rome[618], named King of the Lombards and installed at Pavia, ruling under the regency of Adalhard.¬â€  He invaded the duchy of Benevento in early 793.¬â€  The 796 victory of "rex Pippinus" against the Avars led by "Cacanus rex" (which reflects the title "Khagan" not his name) is commemorated in a contemporary poem[619].¬â€  The Annales Fuldenses record that "Ehericum ducem Foroiuliensem, deinde·Ä¶Pippinum filium regis" captured¬â€  the camp of "Hunorum·Ä¶Hringum" in 796, specifying that "Cagan et Iugurro principibus Hunorum" were killed by their own people[620].¬â€  At the partition of the empire agreed at Thionville in 806, Pepin was designated sovereign of Italy, Bavaria, Carinthia (except Nordgau) and Alemannia south of the River Danube.¬â€  He subjugated Istria, the towns of Dalmatia, and Venice in [810][621].¬â€  The Annales Fuldenses record the death "810 VIII Id Iul" of "Pippinum filius eius regem Itali√¶"[622].¬â€  The Annales Sancti Emmerammi record the death "810 Id Iul" of "Pippinus"[623].¬â€ 
Mistress (1): (from [795]) --- .¬â€  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that Pepin's son Bernard was born "·Ä¶ex concubina"[624].¬â€  However, other sources do not refer to the fact that he was illegitimate.¬â€  The question is not beyond doubt.¬â€  Assuming that he was illegitimate, the name of King Pepin's mistress is not known.¬â€  Settipani quotes a name list in the Liber confraternitatum augiensis which reads "Karolus maior domus, Pippin rex, Karlomannus maior domus, Karolus imperator, Karolus rex, Pippin rex, Bernardus rex, Ruadtrud, Ruadheid, Svanahild regina, Bertha regina, Hiltikart regina, Fastrat regina, Liutkart regina, Ruadheid, Hirminkar regina"[625].¬â€  He makes the obvious links between "Karolus maior domus·Ä¶Svanahild regina", "Pippin rex·Ä¶Bertha regina" and "Karolus imperator·Ä¶Hiltikart regina, Fastrat regina, Liutkart regina", deducing that the last named "Ruadheid" must be linked logically to "Pippin rex".¬â€  However, this link is not inevitable.¬â€  It is based on three assumptions: firstly that the second "Pippin rex" was Pepin King of Italy (he is the most likely candidate, but it could also be Pepin King of Aquitaine, son of Emperor Louis I); secondly that there are no female names linked either to "Karolus rex" or to "Bernardus rex", which cannot be proved; and thirdly, that all the females listed were partners of the males listed, which is certainly not the case in view of the absence of Emperor Louis I "le Pieux" who is assumed to be the husband of "Hirminkar regina".¬â€  Rösch suggests Bertha as the possible name of King Pepin's wife, citing Stromeyer[626].¬â€  Settipani suggests that she was a close relative of Adalhard Abb√© de Corbie and his half-brother Wala to explain the appointment of the former as regent for her son Bernard King of Italy in 813.¬â€ 
King Pepin had one illegitimate child by Mistress (1):¬â€ 
1.¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  BERNARD ([797]-Milan 17 Aug 818, bur Milan, San Ambrosio).¬â€  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Bernhardus filius Pippini ex concubina"[627]. ¬â€ He was confirmed 11 Sep 813 at Aix-la-Chapelle as BERNARD I King of Italy.¬â€ 
-¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  see below.¬â€ 
King Pepin had five [illegitimate] children by [Mistress (1)].¬â€  Einhard, who names these daughters, makes no mention of whether they were legitimate or not.¬â€  If they were illegitimate, it is not known whether they were full sisters of Bernard.¬â€ 
2.¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  ADELAIS ([798]-after 810).¬â€  "Adailhaidem, Atulam, Guntradam, Berthaidem ac Theoderadam" are named as daughters of Pippin by Einhard[628].¬â€  She was taken from Italy to the imperial court in 807[629].¬â€  same person as·Ä¶?¬â€  AEDA .¬â€  The Carmen de Primordiis C≈ìnobii Gandersheimensis names the wife of "Liudulfus" as "Oda·Ä¶Francorum·Ä¶de stirpe potentum, filia Billungi·Ä¶atque Aed√¶"[630].¬â€  Her precise origin is mentioned in the charter dated 885 by which "Oda comitissa, Pipini regis Itali√¶ ex filia neptis, Hliudolfi Ducis vidua" founded Kloster Calbe an der Milde, although the accuracy of this document is not known[631].¬â€  m BILLUNG, son of ---.¬â€ 
3.¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  ADULA ([800/810]-after 810).¬â€  "Adailhaidem, Atulam, Guntradam, Berthaidem ac Theoderadam" are named as daughters of Pippin by Einhard[632].¬â€  She arrived at the imperial court before 814.¬â€ 
4.¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  GUNTRADA ([800/810]-after 810).¬â€  "Adailhaidem, Atulam, Guntradam, Berthaidem ac Theoderadam" are named as daughters of Pippin by Einhard[633].¬â€  She arrived at the imperial court before 814.¬â€ 
5.¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  BERTAIDE ([800/810]-after 810).¬â€  "Adailhaidem, Atulam, Guntradam, Berthaidem ac Theoderadam" are named as daughters of Pippin by Einhard[634].¬â€  She arrived at the imperial court before 814.¬â€ 
6.¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  THEODRADA ([800/810]-after 810).¬â€  "Adailhaidem, Atulam, Guntradam, Berthaidem ac Theoderadam" are named as daughters of Pippin by Einhard[635].¬â€  She arrived at the imperial court before 814.¬â€  [According to Winkhaus[636], one of the last four daughters married LAMBERT I Comte de Nantes, son of WIDO Comte et Marquis de Nantes & his wife --- (-Ticino 30 Dec 836), but the source on which this is based has not been identified.]¬â€ 
¬â€ 
¬â€ 
BERNARD, illegitimate son of PEPIN I King of Italy & his mistress --- ([797]-Milan 17 Aug 818, bur Milan, San Ambrosio).¬â€  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Bernhardus filius Pippini ex concubina"[637]. ¬â€ Bernard is named only son of Pippin by Einhard[638].¬â€  Regino names "Bernhardus filius Pippin rex Itali√¶" when recording his death in 818[639].¬â€  Settipani cites a litany of St Gallen which lists Bernard among Carolingians of illegitimate birth[640].¬â€  He was brought up at Kloster Fulda.¬â€  His paternal grandfather sent him back to Italy in autumn 812, granting him the title "rex Langobardorum" in Apr 813.¬â€  Einhard's Annales that "Walanem filium Bernhardi patruelis sui" was sent to Italy in 812 as guardian for "Bernhardum filium Pippin nepotem suum [Karoli imperatoris]"[641].¬â€  He was confirmed 11 Sep 813 at Aix-la-Chapelle as BERNARD I King of Italy, as vassal of the emperor, ruling under the regency of Adalhard abb√© de Corbie[642].¬â€  Although he swore allegiance to his uncle Emperor Louis I "le Pieux" on the latter's accession in 814, the emperor passed the Ordinatio Imperii in Jul 817 which failed to mention Bernard's royal status, effectively depriving him of any role in government and of his royal title.¬â€  Bernard rebelled unsuccessfully in Dec 817.¬â€  He was tricked into returning to France to ask for the emperor's forgiveness at Chalon-sur-Sa√¥ne, but was taken to Aix-la-Chapelle where he was sentenced to death.¬â€  The Annales Xantenses record that "Bernhardus rex Langobardorum" was blinded in 818[643].¬â€  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "Bernhardus filius Pippini ex concubina" was blinded and died on the third day which followed this[644]. ¬â€ After his death, Italy was once more placed under the direct rule of the emperor[645].¬â€ 
m ([813]) CUNIGUNDIS, daughter of --- (-after 15 Jun 835).¬â€  Settipani refers to an act of the monastery of San Alessandro, Parma dated 15 Jun 835 which names her[646].¬â€  The origin of Cunigundis is not known.¬â€  Settipani suggests[647] that she was Cunigundis, daughter of H√©ribert, relative of St Guillaume Comte de Toulouse in order to explain the transmission of the name H√©ribert into the family of Bernard King of Italy.¬â€  This is highly speculative.¬â€  It would also mean that H√©ribert was older than suggested in the document CAROLINGIAN NOBILITY, as it is unlikely that Cunigundis was born later than 800 assuming that the birth date of her son is correctly estimated at [815].¬â€ 
King Bernard & his wife had one son:
1.¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€ ¬â€  PEPIN ([815]-after 850).¬â€  Regino names "Pippinum" son of "Bernhardus filius Pippin rex Itali√¶"[648].¬â€  Seigneur de P√©ronne et de Saint Quentin[649].¬â€  Comte near Paris after 834.¬â€

Bertha appears to be only one of the possibilities for the name of Bernard's mother. See Medlands Discussion below:
Mistress (1): (from [795]) --- . Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that Pepin's son Bernard was born "ဦex concubina"[624]. However, other sources do not refer to the fact that he was illegitimate. The question is not beyond doubt. Assuming that he was illegitimate, the name of King Pepin's mistress is not known. Settipani quotes a name list in the Liber confraternitatum augiensis which reads "Karolus maior domus, Pippin rex, Karlomannus maior domus, Karolus imperator, Karolus rex, Pippin rex, Bernardus rex, Ruadtrud, Ruadheid, Svanahild regina, Bertha regina, Hiltikart regina, Fastrat regina, Liutkart regina, Ruadheid, Hirminkar regina"[625]. He makes the obvious links between "Karolus maior domusဦSvanahild regina", "Pippin rexဦBertha regina" and "Karolus imperatorဦHiltikart regina, Fastrat regina, Liutkart regina", deducing that the last named "Ruadheid" must be linked logically to "Pippin rex". However, this link is not inevitable. It is based on three assumptions: firstly that the second "Pippin rex" was Pepin King of Italy (he is the most likely candidate, but it could also be Pepin King of Aquitaine, son of Emperor Louis I); secondly that there are no female names linked either to "Karolus rex" or to "Bernardus rex", which cannot be proved; and thirdly, that all the females listed were partners of the males listed, which is certainly not the case in view of the absence of Emperor Louis I "le Pieux" who is assumed to be the husband of "Hirminkar regina". Rösch suggests Bertha as the possible name of King Pepin's wife, citing Stromeyer[626]. Settipani suggests that she was a close relative of Adalhard Abbé de Corbie and his half-brother Wala to explain the appointment of the former as regent for her son Bernard King of Italy in 813.
King Pepin had one illegitimate child by Mistress (1):
