Rotbald I D' ARLES et d'Avignon
Compiler's 31/32/33/34 great-grandfather
His parentage is not known. It has been speculated that he was the son of Boso Marchese of Tuscany, for onomastic reasons, but that Boso is not known to have had any sons.
In any case, Boso was a reasonably common name in the area at that time. Rotbald supported King Louis III "the Blind"'s campaign in Italy in 900 and his efforts to be crowned emperor in Feb 901. 1
Rotbaud married Unknown D' AQUITAINE, said to be daughter of Duc Guillaume "le Pieux" D' AQUITAINE and Ingelburga DE PROVENCE.
