  Research Notes:

The Donatio Ecchardi names "Childebrandi genitoris mei et genetricis mei Donnanæ…". There is no indication of her origin. Settipani highlights the onomastic connection with Ekkehard, recorded in the Annales Bertiniani as killed in 844 at the siege of Toulouse and, on the basis that the other Count Ekkehard recorded in the same source as being captured at the same time may have been Dunna's son, suggests that Dunna may have been the sister of the former. However, there were other contemporaries named "Ekkehard" as shown by the Gesta quorundam regum Francorum which records the death in battle in 837 of "Eggihardum…comitem [in Walchram insulam]" while defending "Dorestadum" against the Vikings. "Heccardus comes" placed his assets at the disposal of testamentary executors by charter dated to [Jan 876], for the souls of "genitoris mei Hildebranni…genitrice mea Dunana germanoque meo Theoderico necnon et uxoribus Albegundis et Richildis". A Saxon connection is one of the possibilities for the ancestry of Count Theoderic [I]...; if this is correct, it is possible that the wife of Childebrand [III] was related to Theoderic [I], the name Theoderic being transmitted into the family of Nibelung/Childebrand through her. 1
