- Born: Abt 910, Mâcon, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne, France
- Married (2): 948
- Died: 17 Sep 965, Mâcon, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne, France
The following post to SGM, 16 May 1997, by Jim Stevens, indicates some of the debate and confusion among the sources as to the parents of Gerberga. I am sticking with Lietaud and Berta for a while.

If one accepts Letalde as father, there is little consensus as to Gerberga's mother. Letalde m. (1) Ermengarde of Chalon; (2) Berta, possibly dau. of Garnier\Warinus, Count of Troyes; and (3) Richilde, dau. of Richard of Autun. Winkhaus lists Ermengarde as Gerberga's mother; Moriarty lists Berta; and ES (in vol. iii) lists either Berta or Richilde.
Letalde married Ermengarde DE CHÂLONS, daughter of Cte Monassas (Manassès) I DE CHÂLONS-SUR-SAÔNE and Princess Ermengarde I DE BOURGOGNE. (Ermengarde DE CHÂLONS was born about 910 in Châlons-Sur-Marne, Marne, Champagne, France and died in 931.)
Letalde also married Richilde DE BOURGOGNE in 948. (Richilde DE BOURGOGNE was born about 915 in Auxerre, Yonne, Bourgogne, France.)
