Subject: Re: Wives of Charles the Simple & Louis the Stammerer
Eadgifu was Charles III's second wife, whom he had married by 919. French sources transform her name into Edgiva, Ogive etc. She later married (951) one of the Vermandois brothers, Heribert III the Old, Ct Palatine under Lothar, d.980/4.
The evidence for the second marriage by the widow of Charles is Settipani (Prehistoire des Capetiens) p325 n912 cites Flodoard's entry for 951. However, Matman , later offered another opinion:
that she "m2) 951 Heribert of Meaux (not Heribert III of Vermandois - see Werner)".
