  Research Notes:

Her first marriage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis, who also names her father and her four oldest sons. The De Genere Comitum Flandrensium, Notæ Parisienses records "filiam Humberti comitis Morienne" as wife of "Ludovicum regem Grossum". The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "regina Alaydis…soror Amadei comitis Sabaudie" as wife of "Ludovici Grossi".

She exercised considerable influence over her husband, playing an active part in the downfall of Etienne de Garlande, Chancellor of France. After the accession of her son as King Louis VII in 1137, Adelaide conspired against Suger, Abbé de Saint-Denis, triggering a quarrel with her son who exiled her and her second husband to her lands in Compiègne. Her second marriage is confirmed by an undated charter which records a donation to the priory of Saint-Nicolas d´Acy, near Senlis made in the presence of "dominæ Adelæ reginæ et domini Mathei mariti eius". In 1153, she retired to the church of the Abbaye de Saint-Pierre at Montmartre, which she had founded.

The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XIV Kal Dec" of "Adelaidis regina". 1
