Doubts about Gertrude of Bavaria's Geneology (as stated here)[edit]


In trying to resolve a disambiguation for Adelaide of Savoy, I ran into difficulties with Clementia of Aquitaine's and Conrad I, Count of Luxembourg. They apparently had no issue named either Ida or Albert. Their daughter, Ermesinde of Luxembourg, Countess of Namur, did first marry Albert of Moha (c. 1065 – 24 August 1098), Count of Dagsburg, Eguisheim, Metz and Moha, and vogt of Altorf. She later married Godfrey I, Count of Namur († 1139), neither of whom are Albert III, Count of Namur.

Working from the other side, Rudolf of Rheinfelden did apparently marry Adelheid or Adelaide (d. 1079 or 1080), daughter of Otto of Savoy. Rudolph's daughter Adelaide married Ladislaus I of Hungary, neither of whom are in this family tree.

Had I the time, I would start at Gertrude, and work my way back toward Adelaide of Savoy to verify this ancestry tree, but as it is, I have serious doubts about the eldest ancestors stated here.

Ladislaus isn't an ancestor of Gertrude which is why he and the other daughter of Rudolf and Adelheid isn't listed; Gertrude is descended from their other daughter Agnes of Rheinfelden who was the wife of Berthold II, Duke of Swabia. And the tree shows that Ermesinde married Godfrey I, Count of Namur, who was the son of Albert III, Count of Namur and Ida of Saxony. I think you just don't know how to read an ahnentafel.--The Emperor's New Spy (talk) 15:16, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
