Emma VON ALTDORF
- Married: 827, Regensburg, Oberpfalz, Bayern
- Died: 31 Jan 876
The Annales Xantenses record the marriage in 827 of "Ludewicus rex" and "sororem Iudith imperatricis" but does not name her. This appears to be the only source in which her origin is given. "Ludowicus…rex" made a donation to St Felix & Regula in Zurich naming "filia nostra Bertha…[et] coniugis nostræ Hemmæ" by charter dated 29 Oct 863.
The Gesta Francorum records that "Hemma quoque regina" became paralysed in 874, died at Regensburg in 876 and was buried in the church of St Emmeran. The necrology of Regensburg St Emmeran records the death "II Kal Feb" of "Hemma regina hic sepulta". The necrology of Augia Divis records the death "II Kal Feb" of "Hemma regina". 1
Emma married Louis II "der Deutscher" CAROLING, King of the East Franks, son of Louis I "Le Pieux" CAROLING, Holy Roman Emperor, and Ermengarde DE HESBAYE, in 827 in Regensburg, Oberpfalz, Bayern. (Louis II "der Deutscher" CAROLING was born about 806 and died on 28 Aug 876 in Frankfurt-am-Main, Hessen.)
