Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Adélaïde of Normandy (daughter of Richard II and Judith of Brittany); died after 1074.

    Notes:

    Sometimes called Judith. "As for Judith being the same person as Adelais, there is no reason to doubt this: she was recorded as Renaud's wife named Adelais in 1023, well before occurring with her mother's name Judith in 1037 (perhaps the alternative was used to distinguish her from her step-mother-in-law Adelais), and she was still living nearly two decades after Renaud's death." [Peter Stewart, citation details below.]

    Adélaïde married Renaud I before 2 Nov 1023. Renaud (son of Otto-William of Burgundy and Ermentrude de Roucy) died in 1057. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
