Gerold, count in Kraichgau and Anglachgau
Thurgau was located south of Lake Constance. It is now the name of a canton in north-east Switzerland, but it is unclear whether this is co-extensive with the medieval county of the same name.

Europäische Stammtafeln records Gerold [I] as "Graf im Mittelrheingebiet", implying a Franconian origin. However, a strong connection with Swabia is indicated by the places where his sons were recorded as counts.

His ancestry is unknown.

Some scholars speculate on onomastic grounds that he might have been a son of Gerold of Mayenne.
Gérold Ier de Vintzgau at French Wikipedia cites Pierre Riché for the suggestion that he was son of one Agilulf perhaps son of Théodon, who was son of another Agilulf. Pierre Riche, The Carolingians , Table V: Families of Bavaria and Alemannia.
Alternatively, he might have been son of Hado von Vintzgau and Gerniu of Swabia. This Hado was a relative of Agilulf. Gérold Ier de Vintzgau at French Wikipedia, Gerold von Anglachgau at German Wikipedia (visited Dec. 29, 2012) lists no parents, but a previous version apparently listed Hado of Vintzgouw and Gerniu of Swabia.

Parents and siblings:
An unknown Frankish noble
Unknown mother
No known siblings
Spouse:
Imma von Alemannia (d. 798)
Children:
1. Gerold II (d. 799), Prefect in Bavaria (796-799), m. to an unknown wife.
2. Udalrich I (d. 824), Graf im Alpgau, Breisgau, Hegau, Thurgau, on the north bank of Bodensee, and Alsace.
3. Udo (d. before 798)
4. Hildegard de Vinzgouw (758 - 783), third wife of Charlemagne
5. Megingoz (d. after 808)
6. Adrianus (d. before 821) Comte d'Orleans, m. Waldrade von Wormsgau (d. after 824)
7. Erbio (d. 793)
Basic information and justifications:
Birth: c. 730 - from Mittelalter Genealogie (English Wikipedia suggests c.725) Location unknown (offspring of an unknown Frankish nobleman)
Wedding: Date and location unknown. Only known birthdate is that of Hildegard in 758, she being fourth known child. A reasonable guess would be 750. Location is probably in Alemannia, but this is speculative.
Death: 798, from FMG. Location suggested to be Isenburg, presumably in Alemannia.
Occupation: Graf in Kraichgau, Anglachgau, Westbaar, and possibly Alsace.
Alternate names: Some English sources still insist on Gerold of Vinzgouw, though he held no land in any such named territory. His area of origin is unknown - ethnicity is Frankish.

From the English Wikipedia page on Gerold of Vinzgouw: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerold_of_Vinzgouw
Gerold of Vinzgouw (also Vintzgau or Anglachgau; c. 725 ·Äì 799) was an Alamannian nobleman, serving the Frankish King as Margrave of the Avarian March and Prefect of Bavaria. Gerold played a significant role in the integration of Bavaria into the Frankish Kingdom.
Being related to the family of the Agilolfings, he was appointed Prefect of Bavaria after the deposition of Duke Tassilo III in 788. In 784 generous donations to the monastery of Lorsch by Gerold and Emma are recorded.
In 799 he fell in a battle against the Avars, a short while after his son Eric was killed by the treachery of the same. He was succeeded by his surviving sons Gerold II and Udalrich I.
Marriage and issue
In 757, he married Emma (730·Äì789), daughter of Hnabi, Duke of Alamannia. They had the following:
1. Eric of Friuli
2. Adrian, Count of Orléans, father of Odo I, Count of Orléans
3. Gerold
4. Udalrich
5. Hildegard, who in 771 married King Charlemagne.
Through Udalrich, Gerold is reckoned as the founder of the family of the Udalrichings.

2, Adrian, Count of Orléans, father of Odo I, Count of Orléans (our ancestor)
3. Gerold II
4. Udalrich
5. Hildegard, who in 771 married King Charlemagne
. Through Udalrich, Gerold is reckoned as the founder of the family of the Udalrichings.

Count Gerold skillfully coordinated a political marriage with a family in possession of a special position of power in Alemannia within the first half of the 8th century. He was of Frankish origin. Together with his wife Imma, he donated in 784 wealthy possessions in Wormsgau, Lobdengau, Anglachgau, Uffgau, and Krainachgau to the monastery of Lorsch. The properties were mainly between Worms and Oppenheim and between Heidelberg and Bruchsal. The county that Gerold covered was in the Kraichgau and Anglachgau. Even before he invaded Alemannia after 779-783, he held positions in the northern part of Westbaar. Perhaps he also acquired property in Alsace. His rights in Alemannia, however, are certainly not solely because of his marriage with Imma. He was certainly also supported by the advancement of Frankish power into the Alemannic region. Count Gerold could be expected to have died shortly after 784.

Count Gerold is named in the records of the monastery Lorsch as a renowned major landowner in the Middle Rhine area. On 1 July 784, Geroldus et coniux mea Imma gave to the abbey extensive property in Wormsgau, Lobdengau, Anglachgau, Kraichgau and Uffgau (CL II 1 880; see Gensicke, Worms, Speyer and Nabegau 474f;. Schaab, Lobdengau 565.567; DENS ., Kraichgau 597;. DENS, Rhine Valley 586). Kraichgauer Besitz was in the possession of Geroldus comes and his wife Imma on 30 June 779, when they gave it over to Nazariuskloster (CL III No. 2310, see Schaab, Kraichgau 594) on the following day, 1 July 779, in a document in which Count Gerold alone is listed as the donor of lands in Anglachgau (CL III No. 2503). The focal points of this study were the Lorscher Traditionsnotizen Nrn. 3617 and 3289. The first of these was issued on 22.8. 779-783, and states that in Isenhart in ducatu Alemannorum in uilla Giselstedem schenkte, quidquid Geroldus comes ibidem habere uisus est. This is in part probably to the execution of the other instrument set out in donation by Geroldus (...) in Alemannorum in pago et in Giselsteder Reistodinger marca marca (see SEILER, Northern Württemberg 628.633 A. 25). The carta Gerold bears the date of 27 May 777, and therefore supports the 779 document showing Gerold as count.
Lorsch certificates 3617 and 3289 fail to identify Gerold as holding the county of Amtswalter in Alemannia; after all you'd expect Count rights in Bereich von Gültstein (Map at Borgolte, Comment: M 5) and the Mark von Reistingen bei Herrenberg (this M 5, GOCKEL 289) without exclusion.
Another instrument seems Lorscher Urkunde of Gerold , count landlord in Alemannia, however, which seems to prove him the manager of a comitates. From CL III No. 3637, he gave Wanfrit namely property in Glatten (Map at Borgolte, Comment: 17) and Dornstetten (16), specifically Waltgouue in comitatu Geroldi (for Formel: DIETRICH, Traditionsnotiz, bes. 289f.). The instrument was dated in the years 779-83 (April 18) and was issued for property southeast of Gültstein. Therefore, Gerald meant the county in Waldgau. Of course, another possibility at least after 786 is GEROLD (II), whose identity is also in question (see Jänichen, Baar and Huntari 97, then SCHULZE 204 A. 194; to the document in WI Gerold No 107 s. GEROLD Article II).
The Glatten als Waldgauort was called Dornstetten in other documents from the same period, and Dorn-, Nagold- und Westergau were located in Bertoldsbaar (Borgolte, history of the counties of Alemannia 129). One's own county (Gau) cannot, contrary to the assumption of earlier research (Baumann, Gaugrafschaften 136ff 194th, see Jänichen, Baar and Huntari 97, SCHULZE 106.116 f., 204 A.) - be inherited, and the Comitat Gerold , the Glatten and Dornstetten, as with Waldgau, cannot be described exactly as in the sources, for in the north of Bertoldsbaar very few counties were handed down (Borgolte, history of the counties of Alemannia, Chapter V. 3).
The younger GEROLD (II) handed down before the end of the 8th Century to the abbey of Reichenau and St. Gallen Besitz his holdings at Neckarbogen bei Horb, and also those near to Glatten und Dornstetten. In one document issued by Gerold (II) is a signature by Imma genetrix. The research therefore considers Gerold as the father of the benefactor of Reichenau and St. Gallen (first Leichtle see STÄLIN, then KNAPP and - for the more recent basic research - GLÖCKNER). Imma is considered by the Thegan Vita Hludowici 590 f. cap (2.) "the parent of Queen Hildegart, and equally the daughter NEBIS"; since Hildegart was born probably 757 (ABEL-SIMSON, Jbb. Charlemagne I, 449 with note 3 ), the marriage between Imma and the middle Rhine magnate must have spanned 50 years. Other proven children of Imma include Count Udalrich (I) and Voto. Count RUADBERT (I) was a brother of Imma.
Other than Hildegart , Gerold (II) , Udalrich (I) and Volo, other children of Gerold and Imma are open to discussion. Between 784 and 795, perhaps 25.10.790 (as per GOCKEL 243 with A. 183), Megingoz donated to the Nazariuskloster Giiter the lands of Wiesloch in Malsch and Heidelberg in Rohrbach as the genitor meus Geroldus morgens dereliquit (CL II No. 791); Megingoz could be identified with Meingoz, in 801 he received from his brother Gerholt as inheritance Lambert's Basilica in Mainz (CL II No. 1974). As a landowner in the (present) Rhein-Main area and the son of an elder Gerold and brother of a younger Gerold, Megingoz would fit into the generation of Gerold (II) (see GOCKEL 243f;. Mitterauer 16; SCHMID 10). If this assignment upon Gerold's death to Megingoz is true, then it is a Terminus ante quem. Back in July 793, Adrianus filius Geroldi (...) pro anima Erbionis germani mei für Lorsch a certificate of a gift of property at Flonheim bei Alzcy to Erbios was noted (CL II No. 936). Adrian and his brother are named in this document as are other sons (presumed to be DIETRICH, Conradines 302f., SCHMID 10) or as grandson Gerold (Mitterauer 11,13) is considered. In the first alternative, one could say that GEROLD (II) after Walahfrid Strabo, when considering that his date of death was in 799, had neither children nor heirs, but Erbio believes that he remained alive into the 9th century (GOCKEL 245F., Mitterauer 13 f.).
Two other unproven assertions exist about Gerold: the Lorscher Urkunden of Megingoz and of Adrian in an entry in the Verbrüderungsbuch of Reichenau(115B5). Kerolt was on the 2nd page of the NOMINA DEFUNCTORUM QUI PRESENS COENOBIUM SUA LARGITATE FUNDAUERUNT following Nebi comis, Ruadb (s) t comis was noted. Since Nebi was his father and RUADBERT (I) was his brother, Gerold's entry should have been identical, and raises questions about whom Imma was married (also MAYR; to Gerold document in Reichenau brotherhood book 114D1 see Art GEROLD II).
Gerold was connected to a descendant of Duke Godfrey - Imma, according to Thegan. He became a central figure because of his possession of the Mittelthein als Franke (GLÖCKNER, then DIENEMANN-DIETRICH, and other sources). Gerold was therefore, from CHANCOR, WARIN and Ruthard a well-known Imperial aristocrat that supported the integration of Alemannia into the Frankish realm, on behalf of CAROLINGIANS. By marrying into a prominent Alemannic family, he was substantially beneficial to the north of Bertoldsbaar where he first started rule, and he undoubtedly subjected his people soon after to Frankish rule, leaving his court at Cannstatt to reconcile with that circumstanc. This differed from the moderate policies of Warins and Ruthards, in that he was deeply involved with the management of the political order of Alemannia, and sought to change it from the ground up (Borgolte).
Today, we call the offspring of Gerold as "GEROLDEN" or "GEROLDINGERN" (MITTERAUER, WERNER, GOCKEL, BERGES, WENSKUS), while earlier the offspring of Udalrich (I) were commonly called "ULRICHE" or "UDALRICHINGER" (as yet Bilgeri, the problem of naming: SCHMID). Recently, research efforts found a link between the GEROLDEN and the AGILOLFINGER (DIENEMANN-DIETRICH 188f.; WERNER; WENSKUS; s. a. Artt. GEROLD II, NEBT). That Gerold was the son of an Agilolf as Wenskus (426) has considered, is unprovable (GOCKEL 275f.).

Imma was the great-granddaughter of Duke Gotfrid (d. 708).
