    Also called Regnier.

    Many genealogical sources, including Ancestral Roots, give Reginar as the son of Giselbert and a daughter of Lothair I. But (as Wikipedia notes), no contemporary evidence exists linking Reginar and this Giselbert. A detailed discussion of what we know and of the plausibility of this and other speculations can be found at The Henry Project.

    From Wikipedia (accessed 15 March 2014): "His nickname is variously given in other languages as Langhals, au Long Cou, au Longue Col, Collo-Longus, or Longi-colli. Nevertheless, this nickname does not appear in primary sources and in fact refers to his eponymous grandson [Reginar III, abt 920-973, Count of Hainault] and great-grandson [Reginar IV, abt 950-1013, Count of Mons]."

    From The Henry Project: "Regnier was still living on 25 August 915, when he appeared in a charter of Charles 'the Simple' (see above). He was certainly deceased by 19 January 916, when he was not present at the assembly at Heristal, but his sons Giselbert and the younger Regnier were (the order they were listed making it clear that it was not the father who was present) [Parisot (1898), 617; Wampach (1935), 170 (#146)]. If the Catalogi abbatum Epternacensium is correct in having his tenure as lay-abbot end in the fourth year of Charles the Simple (as king of Lorraine -- see above), then Regnier was deceased by November of that year [see Brabant (1881), 66 (#81), n. 1; Parisot (1898), 609-610]."

    Reginar married Alberada of Mons. Alberada died after 915. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 13.  Alberada of Mons died after 915.

    Notes:

    Also called Albreda; Alberade of Lorraine.

    2. 6. Giselbert I was born between 891 and 898; died on 2 Oct 939 in Andernach, Rhineland, Germany.

  3. 14.  Heinrich I "The Fowler", King of Germany was born about 876 (son of Otto I "The Illustrious" and Hadwig von Babenberg); died on 2 Jul 936 in Membleben, Lower Saxony, Germany; was buried in Quedlinburg Abbey, Quedlinburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany.

    Notes:

    Duke of Sachsen (Saxony). King of Germany 919-936.

    Heinrich married St. Matilda in 909. Matilda (daughter of Dietrich and Reinhild of Denmark) was born about 890; died on 14 Mar 968 in Quedlinburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany; was buried in Quedlinburg Abbey, Quedlinburg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 895

    Notes:

    Also called Mechtilde of Ringelheim.

    "The principal basis for estimating her birth date is that she is said to have been of tender years (aetate tenera) in a passage of Vita Mahthildis reginae shortly before her marriage to Heinrich, which occurred about 909." [The Henry Project]
