There is uncertainty about this origin of Adelais, wife of Hugues Capet, which is stated directly only in the 11th century Translation de Saint-Magloire[348]. This Poitevin origin is also suggested by Richer who records that King Robert "ob nepotem suum Wilelmum" besieged "in Aquitania?Hildebertum"[349]. It is assumed that such a relationship between King Robert and Duke Guillaume would be through the king's mother as no family connection through his father has been established. The Chronicle of Ademar de Chabannes, on the other hand, recounts the dispute between "Dux Aquitanorum Willelmus" and King Hugues, as well as the subsequent peace agreed between the parties in 990, without mentioning that the duke was the king's brother-in-law[350], all the more surprising if the Poitevin origin is correct as Ademar concentrates on Poitevin affairs and also includes genealogical details in his narrative. Helgaud's Vita Roberti Regis names "Rex Francorum Rotbertus?patre Hugone, matre Adhelaide", specifying that "ab Ausonis partibus descenderat"[351]. Settipani equates "Ausonia" with Rome or Italy[352], although no other referenceto an Italian origin for Adelais has yet been identified. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the mother of "rex Francorum Robertus" as "superiorem regum Anglie soror"[353] but it is difficult to see to whom this could refer or how it could be correct. The paucity of references in contemporary sources to the wife of Hugues Capet and her origin contrasts sharply with the frequent references to his mother and to the wives of his son King Robert I. This suggests that the background of Queen Adelais may have been obscure and that her family had little political influence at the time, although this would be surprising as her husband was already enjoying a position of some power at the Carolingian court at the time of his marriage. Maybe her family was prominent when the couple married but suffered a subsequent decline by the time her husband was elected king. Nevertheless, an Aquitainian marriage would have fitted the political circumstances of the time. After several decades of dispute between the Capet and Poitou families, a permanent peace appears to have been established from about the time the marriage took place[354]. The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XVII Kal Jul" of "Adelaidis regina"[355]. m ([968]) HUGUES Duc des Francs, ([940]-Les Juifs, near Prasville, Eure-et-Loire 24 Oct 996, bur �eglise de l'Abbaye royale de Saint-Denis, King of France).

Lot proposed some years ago that Adelaide, wife of Hugh Capet, was from Poitou/Aquitaine, but Constance Bouchard ("Consanguinity and Noble Marriages in the Tenth and Eleventh Centuries," Speculum 56 (1981): 268- 287, note 17) argues persuasively that there is no convincing primary evidence supporting this and that there is good reason for believing that Adelaide was not related to the dukes of Aquitaine, namely, the marriage of Hildegard of Burgundy (great-granddaughter of Hugh and Adelaide) to William VI (VIII), Count of Poitou, Duke of Aquitaine, a marriage which would have been consanguineous within three degrees if Adelaide were the daughter of William I (III), Count of Poitou, Duke of Aquitaine. [Ref: Don Stone SGM 3/12/1996-052739] Christian Settipani in "La prehistoire des Capetiens" (1993), pp. 415-419, discusses questions raised about the identity of Adelaide, wife of Hugh Capet. He explicitly comments on Bouchard's article, "Patterns of women's names in royal lineages, ninth-eleventh centuries," Medieval prosopography, ix(1)(1988), pp. 1-32, as well as other objections by her and by others. He concludes, I gather, the the objections are wanting, and that William I of Poutou [III of Aquitaine] is Adelaide's father (as in ES ii, 76). A relevant paragraph (without diacritics or footnotes) reads: "Pour en revenir a Adelais, la 'preuve' finale de sa filiation, ainsi que l'a note A. Lewis, est peut-etre contenue dans un diplome de Lothaire confirmant en 982 une donation qu'elle aurait faite au monastere de la Trinite de Poitiers. Dans cet acte, il est precise qu'Adela, femme du duc Eblo (sic), cousin (consobrinus) du Roi, etait la fille de la fondatrice de la Trinite, Adela, qui avait effectue sa donation avec le consentement de son fils le marquis Wilhelm. L'acte n'etant connu que par un vidimus de 1377, l'editeur a corrige naturellement, 'Eblo', qui n'offre aucun sens ici, en 'Hugo'. Si cette emendation etait fondee, nous aurions la preuve finale du fait qu'Adelais, femme d'Hugues Capet, etait la fille de Wilhelm III d'Aquitaine et d'Adela de Normandie, la soeur donc de Wilhelm IV. C. Bouchard lui a cependant objecte le caractere conjectural de la restitution : 'Hugh' pour 'Eblo', et la confusion du document qui aurtait pour principaux acteurs Eblo et Adela, parents du duc Wilhelm III, lesquels etaient pourtant decedes en 982. On comprend mal cette objection. Le seul duc d'Aquitaine, dont la femme s'appelle Adela et qui en eut un fils nomme Wilhelm, est Wilhelm III, epoux de Gerloc ou Adela de Normandie (la seconde femme d'Ebalus etant bien surnommee Adela mais n'etant pas la mere de Wilhelm III). De plus, on voit mal comment Ebalus pouvait etre cousin de Lothaire. Sa lointaine origine carolingienne par les femmes ne lui donne un ancetre commun avec Lothaire qu'en la personne de Charlemagne. En outre le texte distingue entre l'epoux d'Adela, titre 'duc' et le comte de Poitiers Wilhelm, titre 'marquis'. Enfin, contrairement a ce que dit C. Bouchard, le texte est parfaitement coherent, une fois adopte la correction de nom. Lothaire confirme le don fait par Adela, la femme de son cousin le duc Hugo, a la Trinite fondee par la mere de celle-ci, Adela, avec le consentement de son fils, le marquis Wilhelm." I note that in his summary descent of the Robertiens, Table 11, he lists Hugh Capet's wife as "Adelais d'Aquitaine." I should appreciate an assessment by someone who can both read French and weigh historical argument--skills in which I am sadly wanting. [Ref: Alan B. Wilson SGM 10/21/1997-052001] Response from Jason Cruse (jcruse@nemonet.com) with translation: "To come back to Adelais, the final "proof" of her [birth/relationship], is perhaps contained in a diploma of Lothaire, which confirmed a donation, in 982, that she made to a monastery, the Trinity, in Poitiers. In this act, it is stated that Adela, wife of Duke Eblo, cousin of the King, was the daughter of the founder of the monsatery, Adela, who had made her donation with the consent of her son, the Marquis Wilhelm. This act was not known until 1377, when an editor corrected, naturally, Eblo, which has no meaning, into Hugo. {trouble here in the first part, but my best guess, in brackets} [If we can believe these records] then we have proof that Adelais, wife of Hugh Capet, was the daughter of Wilhelm II of Aquitaine and Adela of Normandy, and the sister of Wilhelm IV. C, Bouchard objects to the correction of Eblo into Hugh, and the confusion over the document which has for principal actors Eblo and Adela, parents of Duke Wilhem III, who were, however, dead in 982. The objections, however, are difficult to understand. The only duke of Aquitaine whose wife was named Adela and whi had a son named Wilhelm, is Wilhelm III, husband of Gerloc or Adela of Normandy (the second wife of Ebalus was also named Adela, but was not the mother of Wilhelm III). Moreover, it is difficult to see Ebalus could have been Lothaire's cousin. His carolingian origins are so far removed that his only common ancester with Lothaire could only be Charlemagne. In addition, the text distinguishes between the spouse of Adel, entitled "duke" and the count of Poitiers Wilhelm, entitled "marquis". Finally, contrary to what Bouchard states, the text is perfectly clear, once the name adaptation is made. Lothaire confirms the gift by Adela, wife of the cousin of Duke Hugo, to the Trinity order founded by Adela, with the consent of her son, Marquis Wilhelm."
