The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 1034 under which “Rotgarius filius Garsente” paid homage to “Petrone episcopo filio Adalais”. The 15th century Chronicle of Esquerrier names "dona Beatriz de Bezes" as the wife of "Mossen Bernard", but this source is too late to give much credibility to its account of the early comtes de Foix.
She succeeded her father as Ctss de Bigorre. 1
Gersende married Bernard Roger DE CARCASSONNE, Comte de Cousserans..., son of Roger I "le Vieux" DE COMMINGES, Comte de Carcassonne and Adelais DE MELGUEIL, about 1010. (Bernard Roger DE CARCASSONNE was born before Aug 981 and died on 26 Aug 1036/8.)
