Héribert I CAROLING, Comte de Vermandois

Lietgardis DE TROYES

  • Died: 27 May

  Lietgarde (Lietgardis, Légarde, Liégeard, alias Gerberge)... probable fille d’Aleran II, comte de Troyes. 1

  Research Notes:

The name of the wife of Comte Héribert is not known. However, a "Comtesse Liedgardis", different from the daughter of Comte Héribert [II], is named who could have been his wife. If this is correct, the necrology of Reims which records the death "VI Kal Jun" of "Letgardis comitissa", may refer to the same person. According to the Histoire de Guise, Albert Comte de Vermandois constructed the abbey of Saint-Michel at Rochefort in 945 "d'accord avec la comtesse Hérésinde sa femme", while in 947 Hérésinde founded the nearby Benedictine convent of Bucilly. The source assumes that this refers to Albert Comte de Vermandois, but his supposed marriage to Hérésinde is not mentioned by Settipani. According to the introduction to the Cartulaire de l'abbaye de Bucilly, Bucilly was founded by "Gerberge, femme d'Albert I Comte de Vermandois" although it notes that "certains auteurs ont voulu faire remonter [sa fondation] à la libéralité de Hersinde femme d'Herbert Comte de Vermandois morte en 901". No other reference has been found to Hérésinde being the wife of Comte Héribert [I]. 2

  Marriage Information:

Lietgardis married Héribert I CAROLING, Comte de Vermandois, son of Pépin CAROLING Count of Péronne & St-Quentin and (Chrothais) Rothais DU VEXIN. (Héribert I CAROLING, Comte de Vermandois was born between 848 and 850 in Vermandois, Neustria and died between Jan 900 and 6 Nov 907 in St. Quentin, Peronne, France.)
