The Paternal Origins of the Counts of Geneva

Author: Brook, Lindsay

Year published: 2003

Description / Notes:

The maternal ancestry of Gérold, Count of Geneva, from the penultimate ‘Rudolfinger’ King of Burgundy has long been known. The identity of his father has, however, remained elusive. In a recent book, it is suggested that Gérold is descended in the male line from the counts of Dagsburg-Egisheim in Alsace. Moreover, this author proposes that the traditional parentage given for Hildegard, great-grandmother of the Emperor Friedrich I Barbarossa, is wrong. This note draws attention to these important conclusions, in the hope that readers will either challenge or endorse them.
