Birth date confusion[edit]

The text give 933; the birth cat gives 935; and the Library of Congress authority file has ca. 932; is there a way to reach a consensus? LC uses the Grand Larousse Encyclopedia from 1964 as one of their sources--FeanorStar7 (talk) 11:46, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Wives and Mistresses[edit]

A database I am researching on RootsWeb indicates that Richard I had a wife or mistress (it says wife) between Emma of Paris and Gonor; it names her as Pappia. They are supposed to have had two children. Does anyone know if this is at all likely, since the article says definitely only two wives and hazards two mistresses? I noticed his son Richard II had a wife by the name of Pappia, which the RootsWeb entry does not have. The RootsWeb database is probably incorrect but I was wondering if anyone knew anything more definite. --Teh fontmaster (talk) 19:46, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Counts of Paris[edit]

The article says "In 968, Richard agreed to "commend" himself to Hugh, Count of Paris. He then allied himself with the Norman and Viking leaders, drove Louis out of Rouen, and took back Normandy by 947." Later it says he became the guardian of the young Hugh (Hugh Capet I suppose) after the elder Hugh's death (presumably Hugh the Great). But what is the proper order of the first sentence? 968 obviously does not come before there a date wrong? Adam Bishop (talk) 16:20, 26 October 2008 (UTC)


The children here do not match ES II, 79, which is the best source I know listing his children. Unless someone has a better suggestion I'll align them as per that source. Can adjust as more sources are found. Bearpatch (talk) 04:12, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

More Children Queries[edit]

There is not agreement between this article and Gunnora's article concerning the children they had together. This page lists them as having Geoffrey, Count of Eu as a son who does not appear on Gunnora's page, and his own article says his mother is unknown. Then Gunnora's article lists a son called Robert Danus, died between 985 and 989 who does not appear on this article. I'm no historian, but I would have thought the two lists would be the same.
