The Genealogica Comitum Flandriæ Bertiniana names "filiam Gisleberti comitis Odgivam" as wife of "Balduinum Barbatum". “Gisleberti” in this source is presumably an error for “Friderici”.... Giselbert brother of Friedrich was recorded as a “youth” when he was killed in battle in 1004. It is not impossible that he was married with a young child at the time. However, another version of the Genealogica Comitum Flandriæ names "Adalberto Metensis episcopus, Fredericus dux Lotharingie, Henricus dux Baioarie, Gislebertus comes de Salinis" as brothers of Baudouin´s wife. It is unlikely that the “youth” Giselbert was the father of five children when he died. In addition, other primary sources confirm that the brothers Heinrich and Adalbero were sons of Friedrich. It is probable therefore that Ogive was also Friedrich´s daughter. The date of her marriage suggests that Ogive was one of her parents' older children. The marriage was presumably arranged by Emperor Heinrich II as part of the alliance negotiated in 1012.
Her name is confirmed by the Annales Blandinienses which record the death in 1030 of "Odgiva comitissa". The Memorial of "Odgiva…Balduino domino" records her death "IX Mar". 2
Ogive married Cte Baudouin IV "le Barbu" DE FLANDRE, son of Cte Arnoul II "Le Jeune" DE FLANDRE and Rozala (Suzanne) D' IVREA, about 1012. (Baudouin IV "le Barbu" DE FLANDRE was born about 980 in Flanders, Belgium and died on 30 May 1035 in Flanders, Belgium.)
