   Research Notes:

The Annales Egmundani name "Hildegardis comitissa" as wife of "Theodericus comes secundus [Hollandensium]" but do not give her origin. The wife of Count Dirk II was the daughter of Count Arnoul according to Rösch, but the author cites no primary source in support of this assertion. According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Hildegard was the daughter of Count Arnoul by Adela de Vermandois and was born in [934]. This appears difficult to sustain chronologically if Hildegard's first son was born in [950], although it is not impossible. Assuming that her sister Liutgard was born in 935, there is little time for the birth of an earlier daughter after Count Arnoul's marriage in 934, assuming also that the latter date is correct. This suggests that, if Hildegard was the daughter of Count Arnoul, she was born from an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage.... 1

   Marriage Information:

Hildegard married Raoul II DE CAMBRAI, son of Raoul de Gouy DE VEXIN Count of Amiens, Valois & Vexin and Aleïdis DE CAMBRAI. (Raoul II DE CAMBRAI was born about 933 in Amiens, Somme, Picardy, France.)

Hildegard also married Dirk II GERULFING Count of West Friesland (939-988), son of Dirk I GERULFING Count in Friesland (916-939) and Geva VAN MAYINHARD, between 945 and 950. (Dirk II GERULFING Count of West Friesland (939-988) was born in 938 in Egmond-Binnen, Noord Holland, Netherlands, died on 6 May 988 in Abdijkerk, Egmond Aan Den Hoef, Noord Holland, Netherlands and was buried in Egmond Aan Den Hoef, Noord Holland, Netherlands.)
