The Annales Bertiniani record that "Adalardo Yrmintrudis reginæ avunculo" was "propinquo" of the brothers Udo (ancestor of the Franconian Konradiner family), Berengar and Waldo who were expelled from Germany in 865[95], and in a later passage record that "Adalardoဦet suis propinquis Hugonis et Berengario" fought the Vikings in 865[96].

However, the Catalogus abbatem Epternacensium, which names "Adelardus iunior comes" as [lay] abbot of Echternach in 878 until 890, indicates that this may be correct[100]. The Breve Chronicon Epternacense also names လAdelardus junior comesဝ as abbot of Echternach from 878 to 890[101].

The Liber Memorialis of Remiremont records the death "4 Non Jan" of "Adellardus"[104], although it is not certain that this refers to Adalhard [IV].

Leuthard (Liuthard, Lisiard) de Paris, Comte de Fézensac
1,2,3
Name Variation Count Leuthard of Paris was also found as Liutaud Count of Paris 6 and Lisiard de Fezensac.8
Birth* before 755 Leuthard was born before 755. He is variously identified as a son or brother of Bego. Tho' some sources give Alpais as his mother this does not seem likely as she just would have been too young. (Settipani's "La prehistoire des Capetiens".) This author is going to assume that he was the brother not the son. If he was the son of Girard then he was born BEFORE 755 as Girard died in 755. If he was the son of Bego then his mother was Williburga who died in 789. This does seem to be a likely scenerio.7
Leuthard/ Liuthard, comte de Fézensac
Probably count of Fézensac, ca. 801.
Leuthard is mentioned with his wife Grimhilde in the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay, founded by their son Gérard "de Roussillon", at which time they were probably both deceased [see below under Gérard].
He has generally been identified with the Leuthard who succeeded Aubry "the Burgundian" as count of Fézensac in about 801 ["Burgundione namque mortuo, comitatus eius Fedentiacus Liutardo est attributus." Vita Hludowici imp., c. 13, MGH SS 2: 612].
An alternative identification, much less likely, would make him the same as count Leuthard of Paris, son of count Bego and his Carolingian wife Alpaïs (see the Commentary section for further details).
Date of death: After 811, 23 February? Alternative Death Date: 819
["VII kal. Dep. Leutardi sacerdotis, Grimildis Deo sacratæ." Obit. Sens, 1, pt. 1: 252] The assignment of 23 February is based on the assumption that the simultaneous appearance of the two names Leuthard and Grimhilde is more than a coincidence, and that it indicates that Leuthard and Grimhilde both retired to the religious life [Levillain (1941), 193-4]. The date of 811 is based on the assumption that the Leuthard who was a brother of count Etienne of Paris (see below) was the same man as Grimhilde's husband. Place of death: Unknown.
Parentage
Conjectured father (likely): Gérard I, fl 752-779, count of Paris. Conjectured mother (likely): Rotrude.
This very reasonable conjecture is based on the possession of the countship of Paris along with the obvious onomastic considerations [Levillain (1949), 235; Hlawitschka (1968), 168; Settipani (2004), 193, n. 1 (given as one possibility)]. Those who conjecture that Leuthard was a son of Bego would make Bego a son of Gérard and Rotrude. Also for onomastic reasons, Rotrude has been conjectured to be a descendant of Charles Martel, who had a wife named Rotrude.
Charles Cawley, in his "Carolingian Nobility" document in his Medieval Lands database, names this Leutard who was Count of Fezenzac as the son of Gerard Count of Paris and his wife Rotrud, and posits a different, younger Leutard as the son of Bego (see below). Cawley writes:
LIUTHARD (-3 Jan [813] or after). "Leutardi germanum Stephani comitis" subscribed the charter dated 811 under which "StephanusဦcomesဦAmaltrudis comitissa" donated property to "Inchadus Parisiace urbis episcopus"[73]. The primary source which identifies that he was the son of Gerard has not so far been identified. Comte de Fézensac. The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records the death of "Burgundio" [in 801] and that "comitatus eius Fedentiacus" was granted to "Liutardo"[74]. The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Liutardum, Isembardum" [in 813][75]. The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés records the death "III Non Jan" of "Leuthardi comitis"[76]. m GRIMHILD, daughter of ---. Her marriage is confirmed by the testament of "Gerardus [comes]" which names "ဦgenitoribus atque parentibusဦLuthardi et Grimildis atqueဦHugonis et Bavæဦfiliis et filiabus ipsorum"[77].
Conjectured father (doubtful): Bego, d. 816, count of Paris. Conjectured mother (doubtful): Alpaïs, filia imperatoris, d. after 29 May 852, daughter of Charlemagne (or of Louis the Pious).
[Depoin (1912), 90, 105-7; Chaume (1925), 543 (table 8); Settipani (2004), 193, n. 1 (given as another possibility)] This conjecture is based on the supposed identification of Leuthard, husband of Grimhilde, with Leuthard, son of Bego and Alpaïs, who is known from Flodoard ["... Ludowicus imperator Alpheidi, filiae suae, uxori Begonis comitis, ... ipsius Alpheidis vel filiorum eius Letardi et Ebrardi ..." Flodoard, Historia Remensis ecclesiae, iv, 46, MGH SS 13: 595]. However, this scenario leads to serious chronological objections. It cannot be right unless Flodoard (writing a century later) was wrong about making Alpaïs a daughter of Louis, and she was a daughter of Charlemagne instead (contemporary records make her the daughter of an unnamed emperor - see the pages of Charlemagne and Louis the Pious). Although it seems clear that the present Leuthard and Bego were closely related, the most probable chronology would place them in the same generation.
Marriage
Spouse: Grimhilde. Grimhilde is mentioned as the mother of Gérard in the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay (see below).
Children

Gérard II "de Roussillon", d. 878×9, count of Paris, count of Vienne;
m. Berthe, daughter of Hugues, count of Tours.
The parentage of Gérard is based on the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay, which mentions Gérard and his wife Berthe and their parents Leuthard and Grimhilde, and Hugues and Bava, and two other relatives (exact relationship not specified) Leutfrid and Adalard ["Ego Gerardus divinæ pietatis munere apud gloriosam Regalem mansuetudinem Comitis honore sublimatus, ex communi voto & desiderio dilectissimæ Conjugis meæ atque amantissimæ Bertæ, ... Sed & dignam rependentes genitoribus atque parentibus honorificentiam, id est, Leuthardi, & Grimildis, atque gratissimorum Hugonis & Bavæ, amabilibusque filiis & filiabus ipsorum, sive qui jam dormierunt in Domino, sive qui adhuc vivant, consanguinitate, affinitate & propiquitate etiam nobis junctis, id est, Leufredi & Adalardi Comitum præclarissimorum, ut pro eis intercessio & assidua deprecatio fieret, & peccatorum eorum acquireretur propitiato, & in loco ipso, quem juvante Christo fundaremus, succeedentibusque temporibus esset eorum permanens recordatio." Historia Vizeliacensis monasterii, Spicilegium, 2: 499].
Charles Cawley says of Gerard II, son of Leuthard:
GERARD [II] (-[11 Feb or 4 Mar] 874, bur Avignon). His parentage is confirmed by his testament under which "Gerardus [comes]" names "coniugis meæဦBerthæဦgenitoribus atque parentibusဦLuthardi et Grimildis atqueဦHugonis et Bavæဦfiliis et filiabus ipsorum" and "consanguinitate, affinitate et propinquitate etiam nobis junctis, id est Leufredi et Adalardi Comitum", and which is signed by "Gerardi comitis, Bertæ coniugisဦEvæ filiæ ipsorum"[78]. Emperor Lothar confirmed a donation of property "in pago Arduennensi sitamဦVillantia" to the abbey of Prüm by "Richardus quondam comesဦper Biuinum fratrem suum, et Gerardum et Basinum qui et Tancredus comites" by charter dated 12 Nov 842[79], although it is not known whether this is the same Gerard. However, as both Gerard and the descendants of Bivin were associated with Provence, it is possible that their association started earlier in the Ardennes. Comte de Vienne. Emperor Lothar returned property to the church of Lyon, at the request of လGerardusဦcomes atque marchioဝ, by charter dated to [852][80]. A document issued by Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks dated Nov 853 names "Folcoinus episcopus, Adalgarius, Engilscalcus et Berengarius" as missi in "comitatu Berengarii, Engilscalchi, Gerardi et in comitatibus Reginarii"[81], although it is not known whether this count Gerard is the same as the one named in the other references listed below. "Karoli rex, Hlotharii augusti filius" confirmed the privileges of the church of Villeurbane in favour of the church of Lyon at the request of "comes et parens noster ac nutritor Girardus" by charter dated 10 Oct 856[82]. The precise relationship between Comte Gérard and the Carolingian monarchs has not been established. Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks confirmed the foundation of the monastery "in pago Avalensi in parrochia Augustudunensis civitatis in locoဦVirziliacus" by "Gerardusဦcomes", with the consent of "coniugis sue Berthæ", by charter dated 6 Jan 868[83]. The Chronico Vezeliacensi records that "Comes Girardus fundator hujus loci" died in 847 and was buried "apud Avinionem civitatem suam"[84], although this year is incorrect. The 13th century obituary of the Eglise primatiale de Lyon records the death "III Non" of "Geraldus comes"[85]. The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés records the death "IV Non Mar" of "Gerardi comitis"[86].
Gerard II m BERTA, daughter of HUGUES Comte de Tours & his wife Ava --- (-[6 Nov] 877). Pope John VIII recalls "Gerardus comesဦcum Berta quondam conjuge sua" as founders of the monastery referred to in his letter[87]. Her parentage is confirmed by her husband's testament under which "Gerardus [comes]" names "coniugis meæဦBerthæဦgenitoribus atque parentibusဦLuthardi et Grimildis atqueဦHugonis et Bavæဦfiliis et filiabus ipsorum"[88]. Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks confirmed the foundation of the monastery "in pago Avalensi in parrochia Augustudunensis civitatis in locoဦVirziliacus" by "Gerardusဦcomes", with the consent of "coniugis sue Berthæ", by charter dated 6 Jan 868[89]. The Chronico Vezeliacensi records that "Berta comitissa hujus loci fundatrix" died in 844 and was buried "apud Pulterias"[90], although the year is incorrect. The 13th century obituary of the Eglise primatiale de Lyon records the death "VIII Id Nov" of "Berta comitissa"[91].
Gerard & his wife had one child: (a) EVA . The testament of "Gerardus [comes]" is signed by "Gerardi comitis, Bertæ coniugisဦEvæ filiæ ipsorum"[92].
Probable children:
Adalard (Alard), fl. 831-877, seneschal, count of the palace; lay-abbot of Saint-Martin de Tours and Marmoutier, 834-843; lay-abbot of Echternach, 849-856; lay-abbot of Saint-Symphorien, 866.
Adalard is mentioned in the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay (see above), and was clearly a relative of either Gérard or Berthe. According to Werner and Hlawitschka, his membership in the family of the counts of Paris and of Bego, restorer of the abbey of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, is secured by an act of Charles the Bald of 2 August 853, in which Adalard, although at that time in the service of Lothair I, appears as intervener and grantor for a donation to Fossés from royal estate which had come to him, with the donation being expressly ordered for the benefit of Adalard's salvation [Werner (1967), 431, n. 8; Hlawitschka (1968), 167, n. 67; both cite Rec. actes Charles le Chauve, 1: 415ff. (#157) (the latter not seen by me)]. Since Leutfrid, the other relative mentioned in the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay, is known to have been a brother of Berthe, it is probable that Adalard was a brother of Gérard [Depoin (1912), 108-9; Chaume (1925), 543 (table 8); Levillain (1949), 235; Hlawitschka (1968), 167-8, 171 (with a "dotted" line); Settipani (2004), 193, n. 1].
Charles Cawley says of Adalhard III, possible son of Leuthard:
['''ADALHARD [III'''] (-after 865). The primary source which identifies Adalhard as the son of Liuthard has not yet been identified, although the testament of "Gerardus [comes]" names "consanguinitate, affinitate et propinquitate etiam nobis junctis, id est Leufredi et Adalardi Comitum"[93]. Seneschal of Emperor Louis I "le Pieux". Nithard says that he "cared little for the public good and tried to please everyoneဦand ruined the kingdom altogether"[94]. The Breve Chronicon Epternacense names လAdelardus comesဝ as abbot of Echternach from 850 to 856[95]. Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks donated property to "Aeduensi S.

(b) [ADALHARD [IV] (-[2 Jan] 890). The primary source which identifies Adalhard [IV] as the son of Adalhard [III] has not yet been identified. However, the Catalogus abbatem Epternacensium, which names "Adelardus iunior comes" as [lay] abbot of Echternach in 878 until 890, indicates that this may be correct[105].

(c) daughter . The Annales Bertiniani record that the son of Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks became betrothed to "filiam Adelardi" against his father's will but did not marry her[111]. Betrothed (865) to LUDWIG, son of LUDWIG II " der Deutsche" King of the East Franks & his wife Hemma --- ([835]-Frankfurt-am-Main 20 Jan 882, bur Kloster Lorsch).
Theother postulated children of Leuthard are daughters, Engeltrude and Rotrude:
Engeltrude, m. Eudes, d. 834, count of Orléans.
There is no known evidence which ties Engeltrude directly to the family of Leuthard. The connection comes from Engeltrude's probable sibling relationship to Adalard, as discussed on the page of Engeltrude.
Rotrude, d. 10 December, year unknown.
Rotrude is mentioned in the necrology of Saint-Germain-des-Prés ["IIII id. [Dec.] ... Chrotrude filie Leutharii" Obit. Sens 1: 280]. Membership in the present family is the most likely possibility, although it is difficult to rule out the possibility that she was the daughter of another Leuthar[d].
(NOTE: Cawley does not list Rotrude as a possible child of Liutard)
Siblings
Probable brother: Etienne (Stephanus), fl. 802-815, count of Paris. This is based on a charter dated 811 from Notre-Dame de Paris which is signed by a Leuthard, brother of count Etienne of Paris ["S.

Leuthard of Paris I
Translated from the French Wikipedia
Son of Count Gerard I de Paris and Rotrude. Brother of Etienne de Paris and Bego of Paris.
Around 781 , Leuthard is sent by Charlemagne to the duchy of Aquitaine , where he remains in the entourage of Louis the Pious, King of Aquitaine ( 781 - 814 ) and Holy Roman Emperor ( 814 - 840 )).
Leuthardမs wife was Grimeut (or Grimhilde) with whom he has the following children: ဢ Engeltrude of Fézensac, wife of Eudes of Orleans, and the mother of Ermentrude Orleans who married the future Emperor Charles the Bald ဢ Adalard the Seneschal (steward of the Carolingian Empire during the reign of Louis the Pious ) ဢ Girart Roussillon (or Girard Paris II ) Count of Paris, Count of Rousillon , Count of Vienne.
In 801, Leuthard follows Louis the Pious in his expedition to Spain and participates in the siege of Barcelona. He received the County of Fézensac from the duchy of Aquitaine , which leads to a revolt of the Basques, of which he becomes the first count . In 809, he is at the siege of Tortosa .
According to historian René Poupardin , Leuthard ended his days in the county of Paris .
His son Girart Roussillon succeeded him as Count of Paris .

Leuthard (Liuthard, Lisiard) de Paris, Comte de Fézensac
1,2,3
Name Variation Count Leuthard of Paris was also found as Liutaud Count of Paris 6 and Lisiard de Fezensac.8
Birth* before 755 Leuthard was born before 755. He is variously identified as a son or brother of Bego. Tho' some sources give Alpais as his mother this does not seem likely as she just would have been too young. (Settipani's "La prehistoire des Capetiens".) This author is going to assume that he was the brother not the son. If he was the son of Girard then he was born BEFORE 755 as Girard died in 755. If he was the son of Bego then his mother was Williburga who died in 789. This does seem to be a likely scenerio.7
Leuthard/ Liuthard, comte de Fézensac
Probably count of Fézensac, ca. 801.
Leuthard is mentioned with his¬â€ wife Grimhilde¬â€ in the foundation charter of Ponthi√®res and V√©zelay, founded by their son¬â€ G√©rard "de Roussillon", at which time they were probably both deceased [see below under G√©rard].
He has generally been identified with the Leuthard who succeeded Aubry "the Burgundian" as count of Fézensac in about 801 ["Burgundione namque mortuo, comitatus eius Fedentiacus Liutardo est attributus." Vita Hludowici imp., c. 13, MGH SS 2: 612].
An alternative identification, much less likely, would make him the same as count Leuthard of Paris, son of count Bego and his Carolingian wife Alpaïs (see the Commentary section for further details).
Date of death: After 811, 23 February? Alternative Death Date: 819
["VII kal. Dep. Leutardi sacerdotis, Grimildis Deo sacratæ." Obit. Sens, 1, pt. 1: 252] The assignment of 23 February is based on the assumption that the simultaneous appearance of the two names Leuthard and Grimhilde is more than a coincidence, and that it indicates that Leuthard and Grimhilde both retired to the religious life [Levillain (1941), 193-4]. The date of 811 is based on the assumption that the Leuthard who was a brother of count Etienne of Paris (see below) was the same man as Grimhilde's husband. Place of death: Unknown.
Parentage
Conjectured father (likely):¬â€ G√©rard I, fl 752-779, count of Paris. Conjectured mother (likely):¬â€ Rotrude.
This very reasonable conjecture is based on the possession of the countship of Paris along with the obvious onomastic considerations [Levillain (1949), 235; Hlawitschka (1968), 168; Settipani (2004), 193, n. 1 (given as one possibility)]. Those who conjecture that Leuthard was a son of Bego would make Bego a son of Gérard and Rotrude. Also for onomastic reasons, Rotrude has been conjectured to be a descendant of Charles Martel, who had a wife named Rotrude.
Charles Cawley, in his¬â€ "Carolingian Nobility" document¬â€ in his Medieval Lands database, names this Leutard who was Count of Fezenzac as the son of Gerard Count of Paris and his wife Rotrud, and posits a different, younger Leutard as the son of Bego (see below). Cawley writes:
LIUTHARD¬â€ (-3 Jan [813] or after). "Leutardi germanum Stephani comitis" subscribed the charter dated 811 under which "Stephanus·Ä¶comes·Ä¶Amaltrudis comitissa" donated property to "Inchadus Parisiace urbis episcopus"[73]. The primary source which identifies that he was the son of Gerard has not so far been identified. Comte de F√©zensac. The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records the death of "Burgundio" [in 801] and that "comitatus eius Fedentiacus" was granted to "Liutardo"[74]. The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Liutardum, Isembardum" [in 813][75].

Her marriage is confirmed by the testament of "Gerardus [comes]" which names "·Ä¶genitoribus atque parentibus·Ä¶Luthardi et Grimildis atque·Ä¶Hugonis et Bav√¶·Ä¶filiis et filiabus ipsorum"[77].
Conjectured father (doubtful):¬â€ Bego, d. 816, count of Paris. Conjectured mother (doubtful):¬â€ Alpa√Øs, filia imperatoris, d. after 29 May 852, daughter of Charlemagne (or of Louis the Pious).
[Depoin (1912), 90, 105-7; Chaume (1925), 543 (table 8); Settipani (2004), 193, n. 1 (given as another possibility)] This conjecture is based on the supposed identification of Leuthard, husband of Grimhilde, with Leuthard, son of Bego and Alpaïs, who is known from Flodoard ["... Ludowicus imperator Alpheidi, filiae suae, uxori Begonis comitis, ... ipsius Alpheidis vel filiorum eius Letardi et Ebrardi ..." Flodoard, Historia Remensis ecclesiae, iv, 46, MGH SS 13: 595]. However, this scenario leads to serious chronological objections. It cannot be right unless Flodoard (writing a century later) was wrong about making Alpaïs a daughter of Louis, and she was a daughter of Charlemagne instead (contemporary records make her the daughter of an unnamed emperor - see the pages of Charlemagne and Louis the Pious). Although it seems clear that the present Leuthard and Bego were closely related, the most probable chronology would place them in the same generation.
Marriage
Spouse:¬â€ Grimhilde. Grimhilde is mentioned as the mother of G√©rard in the foundation charter of Ponthi√®res and V√©zelay (see below).
Children

Gérard II "de Roussillon", d. 878×9, count of Paris, count of Vienne;
m.¬â€ Berthe, daughter of Hugues, count of Tours.
The parentage of Gérard is based on the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay, which mentions Gérard and his wife Berthe and their parents Leuthard and Grimhilde, and Hugues and Bava, and two other relatives (exact relationship not specified) Leutfrid and Adalard ["Ego Gerardus divinæ pietatis munere apud gloriosam Regalem mansuetudinem Comitis honore sublimatus, ex communi voto & desiderio dilectissimæ Conjugis meæ atque amantissimæ Bertæ, ... Sed & dignam rependentes genitoribus atque parentibus honorificentiam, id est, Leuthardi, & Grimildis, atque gratissimorum Hugonis & Bavæ, amabilibusque filiis & filiabus ipsorum, sive qui jam dormierunt in Domino, sive qui adhuc vivant, consanguinitate, affinitate & propiquitate etiam nobis junctis, id est, Leufredi & Adalardi Comitum præclarissimorum, ut pro eis intercessio & assidua deprecatio fieret, & peccatorum eorum acquireretur propitiato, & in loco ipso, quem juvante Christo fundaremus, succeedentibusque temporibus esset eorum permanens recordatio." Historia Vizeliacensis monasterii, Spicilegium, 2: 499].
Charles Cawley says of Gerard II, son of Leuthard:
GERARD [II] (-[11 Feb or 4 Mar] 874, bur Avignon). His parentage is confirmed by his testament under which "Gerardus [comes]" names "coniugis meæဦBerthæဦgenitoribus atque parentibusဦLuthardi et Grimildis atqueဦHugonis et Bavæဦfiliis et filiabus ipsorum" and "consanguinitate, affinitate et propinquitate etiam nobis junctis, id est Leufredi et Adalardi Comitum", and which is signed by "Gerardi comitis, Bertæ coniugisဦEvæ filiæ ipsorum"[78]. Emperor Lothar confirmed a donation of property "in pago Arduennensi sitamဦVillantia" to the abbey of Prüm by "Richardus quondam comesဦper Biuinum fratrem suum, et Gerardum et Basinum qui et Tancredus comites" by charter dated 12 Nov 842[79], although it is not known whether this is the same Gerard. However, as both Gerard and the descendants of Bivin were associated with Provence, it is possible that their association started earlier in the Ardennes. Comte de Vienne. Emperor Lothar returned property to the church of Lyon, at the request of လGerardusဦcomes atque marchioဝ, by charter dated to [852][80]. A document issued by Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks dated Nov 853 names "Folcoinus episcopus, Adalgarius, Engilscalcus et Berengarius" as missi in "comitatu Berengarii, Engilscalchi, Gerardi et in comitatibus Reginarii"[81], although it is not known whether this count Gerard is the same as the one named in the other references listed below. "Karoli rex, Hlotharii augusti filius" confirmed the privileges of the church of Villeurbane in favour of the church of Lyon at the request of "comes et parens noster ac nutritor Girardus" by charter dated 10 Oct 856[82]. The precise relationship between Comte Gérard and the Carolingian monarchs has not been established. Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks confirmed the foundation of the monastery "in pago Avalensi in parrochia Augustudunensis civitatis in locoဦVirziliacus" by "Gerardusဦcomes", with the consent of "coniugis sue Berthæ", by charter dated 6 Jan 868[83]. The Chronico Vezeliacensi records that "Comes Girardus fundator hujus loci" died in 847 and was buried "apud Avinionem civitatem suam"[84], although this year is incorrect. The 13th century obituary of the Eglise primatiale de Lyon records the death "III Non" of "Geraldus comes"[85]. The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés records the death "IV Non Mar" of "Gerardi comitis"[86].
Gerard II m BERTA, daughter of HUGUES Comte de Tours & his wife Ava ---¬â€ (-[6 Nov] 877). Pope John VIII recalls "Gerardus comes·Ä¶cum Berta quondam conjuge sua" as founders of the monastery referred to in his letter[87]. Her parentage is confirmed by her husband's testament under which "Gerardus [comes]" names "coniugis me√¶·Ä¶Berth√¶·Ä¶genitoribus atque parentibus·Ä¶Luthardi et Grimildis atque·Ä¶Hugonis et Bav√¶·Ä¶filiis et filiabus ipsorum"[88]. Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks confirmed the foundation of the monastery "in pago Avalensi in parrochia Augustudunensis civitatis in loco·Ä¶Virziliacus" by "Gerardus·Ä¶comes", with the consent of "coniugis sue Berth√¶", by charter dated 6 Jan 868[89]. The Chronico Vezeliacensi records that "Berta comitissa hujus loci fundatrix" died in 844 and was buried "apud Pulterias"[90], although the year is incorrect. The 13th century obituary of the Eglise primatiale de Lyon records the death "VIII Id Nov" of "Berta comitissa"[91].
Gerard & his wife had one child: (a) EVA . The testament of "Gerardus [comes]" is signed by "Gerardi comitis, Bertæ coniugisဦEvæ filiæ ipsorum"[92].
Probable children:
Adalard (Alard), fl. 831-877, seneschal, count of the palace; lay-abbot of Saint-Martin de Tours and Marmoutier, 834-843; lay-abbot of Echternach, 849-856; lay-abbot of Saint-Symphorien, 866.
Adalard is mentioned in the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay (see above), and was clearly a relative of either Gérard or Berthe. According to Werner and Hlawitschka, his membership in the family of the counts of Paris and of Bego, restorer of the abbey of Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, is secured by an act of Charles the Bald of 2 August 853, in which Adalard, although at that time in the service of Lothair I, appears as intervener and grantor for a donation to Fossés from royal estate which had come to him, with the donation being expressly ordered for the benefit of Adalard's salvation [Werner (1967), 431, n. 8; Hlawitschka (1968), 167, n. 67; both cite Rec. actes Charles le Chauve, 1: 415ff. (#157) (the latter not seen by me)]. Since Leutfrid, the other relative mentioned in the foundation charter of Ponthières and Vézelay, is known to have been a brother of Berthe, it is probable that Adalard was a brother of Gérard [Depoin (1912), 108-9; Chaume (1925), 543 (table 8); Levillain (1949), 235; Hlawitschka (1968), 167-8, 171 (with a "dotted" line); Settipani (2004), 193, n. 1].
Charles Cawley says of Adalhard III, possible son of Leuthard:
['''ADALHARD [III'''] (-after 865). The primary source which identifies Adalhard as the son of Liuthard has not yet been identified, although the testament of "Gerardus [comes]" names "consanguinitate, affinitate et propinquitate etiam nobis junctis, id est Leufredi et Adalardi Comitum"[93]. Seneschal of Emperor Louis I "le Pieux". Nithard says that he "cared little for the public good and tried to please everyoneဦand ruined the kingdom altogether"[94]. The Breve Chronicon Epternacense names လAdelardus comesဝ as abbot of Echternach from 850 to 856[95]. Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks donated property to "Aeduensi S. Symphoricui mon" naming "Adelardus comes", by charter dated 855[96]. "Adelhardus comes" was "provisor monasterii S. Maximini" in Jul 855[97]. "Hlothariusဦrex" donated property "in pago Eiflinse in comitatu Matfridi" at the request of "Adalardus et Matfridusဦcomites" to "vassallo præfati Matfridi Otberto" by charter dated 28 Jun 856[98]. An agreement between Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks and his brother Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks dated Jun 860 names "nobilis ac fidelibus laicisဦChuonradus, Evrardus, Adalardus, Arnustus, Warnarius, Liutfridus, Hruodolfus, Erkingarius, Gislebertus, Ratbodus, Arnulfus, Hugo, item Chuonradus, Liutharius, Berengarius, Matfridus, Boso, Sigeri, Hartmannus, Liuthardus, Richuinus, Wigricus, Hunfridus, Bernoldus, Hatto, Adalbertus, Burchardus, Christianus, Leutulfus, Hessi, Herimannus, item Hruodulfus, Sigehardus"[99]. The Annales Bertiniani record that "Carlomannus, Hlodowici regis Germaniæ" sought refuge with "Adalardo, Yrmintrudis reginæ avunculo, suo autem propinquo" after he was banished by his father following his rebellion in 861[100]. The Annales Bertiniani record that "Adalardo Yrmintrudis reginæ avunculo" was "propinquo" of the brothers Udo (ancestor of the Franconian Konradiner family), Berengar and Waldo who were expelled from Germany in 865[101], and in a later passage record that "Adalardoဦet suis propinquis Hugonis et Berengario" fought the Vikings in 865[102]. "Leudo episcopus et Adelardus comes missi dominici in comitatu Augustidunense" heard a dispute between "Vulfaldum episcopum et Heccardum comitem" concerning land at Perrecy, the proceedings recorded in a charter dated to [866/75][103]. m ---. The name of Adalhard's wife is not known.
Adalhard [III] & his wife had [three] children:
(a) [STEPHANUS (-after 18 Sep 882). "Hildebertus filius quondam Berengarii comitis" donated property "resဦmee in comitatu Vuabrinse prope fluvioဦCherus villamဦBeuram" for "germano meo Berengario" to Verdun Sainte-Vanne by charter dated 18 Sep 882, subscribed by "Stephanus comes, Matfridus comes, Witpertus comes"[104].
(b) [ADALHARD [IV] (-[2 Jan] 890). The primary source which identifies Adalhard [IV] as the son of Adalhard [III] has not yet been identified. However, the Catalogus abbatem Epternacensium, which names "Adelardus iunior comes" as [lay] abbot of Echternach in 878 until 890, indicates that this may be correct[105]. The Breve Chronicon Epternacense also names လAdelardus junior comesဝ as abbot of Echternach from 878 to 890[106]. "Hludowicusဦrex" confirmed a donation of property "in pago Muselahgeuui in comitatu Adalhardi villamဦBerge" to Kloster Fulda by charter dated 24 Jul 880[107]. Emperor Karl III granted property "in Weitereiba in comitatu Adalhardi ad Rosbach" to Kloster Fulda by charter dated 7 Apr 884[108]. The Liber Memorialis of Remiremont records the death "4 Non Jan" of "Adellardus"[109], although it is not certain that this refers to Adalhard [IV]. Hlawitschka suggests that Adelhard [IV] married a daughter of Matfried [II] or of Matfried's sister and that the couple were the parents of the three brothers Gebhard and Matfried Counts of Metz and Richer Bishop of Verdun[110].] - [COMTES de METZ.]
(c) daughter . The Annales Bertiniani record that the son of Ludwig II "der Deutsche" King of the East Franks became betrothed to "filiam Adelardi" against his father's will but did not marry her[111]. Betrothed (865) to LUDWIG, son of LUDWIG II " der Deutsche" King of the East Franks & his wife Hemma --- ([835]-Frankfurt-am-Main 20 Jan 882, bur Kloster Lorsch).
Theother postulated children of Leuthard are daughters, Engeltrude and Rotrude:
Engeltrude, m. Eudes, d. 834, count of Orléans.
There is no known evidence which ties Engeltrude directly to the family of Leuthard. The connection comes from Engeltrude's probable sibling relationship to Adalard, as discussed on the page of Engeltrude.
Rotrude, d. 10 December, year unknown.
Rotrude is mentioned in the necrology of Saint-Germain-des-Prés ["IIII id. [Dec.] ... Chrotrude filie Leutharii" Obit. Sens 1: 280]. Membership in the present family is the most likely possibility, although it is difficult to rule out the possibility that she was the daughter of another Leuthar[d].
(NOTE: Cawley does not list Rotrude as a possible child of Liutard)
Siblings
Probable brother:¬â€ Etienne (Stephanus), fl. 802-815, count of Paris. This is based on a charter dated 811 from Notre-Dame de Paris which is signed by a Leuthard, brother of count Etienne of Paris ["S. Stephani comitis et Amaltrudis, conjugis ejus, necnon et comitiss√¶, qui hanc donationem scribere vel firmare rogaverunt. S. Leutardi, germanum Stephani comitis." Cart. Notre-Dame de Paris, 1: 291 (#3)]. The identification with the present Leuthard is probable, but not certain
