Bera de Razes;[edit]

I will try to follow up more promptly with citations. There are a lot of family trees that are consistent with the notion that Bera, count of Razes, was of Visigothic descent, rather than Frankish. A further source of confusion is that many people doing genealogy work do not recognize that Razes was a county in the Carolingian Marca Hispanica, south of Carcassonne, around Limoux and Quillan. They confuse it with the town Razes in the Haute-Vienne of Limousin north of Limoges. When you realize the geographic location of these people and of the people they are said to be descended from and related to in many family trees, it is clear to me that they were Visigothic. I know that family trees are not as good documentation as are other contemporary documents, and that they sometimes contain some incredibly spurious stuff, but I find them good enough as clues. For instance when I followed Bera of Razes family tree back about four generations someone linked the family to a son of one of the early Merovingian kings that much more well documented history says died as a child. It is spurious on its face as there was no way a Frankish prince living in northern Flanders about 500 a.d. is going to get practically to the Mediterranean to marry without notice and documentation.20:35, 17 February 2014 (UTC)~DocSpenser — Preceding unsigned comment added by DocSpenser (talkcontribs)
