The Annalista Saxo records "Adhelam de Brabantia, ex castello quod Lovene dicitur" as wife of Markgraf Otto, and later her second marriage to Otto's stepfather. The Genealogica Wettinensis names "viduam eius [=Othone marchione]…nata de Brabancia ex castello quod dicitur Levene, erantque fratres eius Heinricus comes et Reiherus" as second wife of "Dedo marchio", but does not name her. "Heinricus…rex" confirmed donations to St Servatius at Maastricht by "marchio Otto de Thuringia eiusque uxor Adela" by charter dated 21 Sep 1062, in the presence of "Friderici ducis, Godefridi marchionis, Lamberti comitis de Brusela filiorumque suorum, Winrici de Wivsehel". Baudouin I Comte de Hainaut (later Baudouin VI Count of Flanders) refers to the donation made by "comitissa de Toringa, neptis meæ Adelæ" to the abbey of Hasnon, in a charter dated 1065. The relationship between Adela and Count Baudouin has not yet been identified. 1
