RESEARCH NOTES: Duchess of Bavaria [Ref: Settipani CharlAnc p60] Abbess of Nonnberg [Ref: Settipani CharlAdd2000] M Werner [M Werner *Adelsfamilien im Umkreis der fruehen Karolinger: Die Verwandschaft Irminas von Oehren und Adelas von Pfalzel* (Sigmaringen, 1982)] discusses Regintrud at some length (pp.221-236 see also his chart at the end of the book). He considers the siblinghood of Adela of Pfalzel and Regintrud to be firm. He is more tentative in adopting the rest of Hlawitschka's well known articulation of the structure of the Hugobert/Irmina family [E Hlawitswchka 'Die Vorfahren Karls des Grossen' in *Karl der Grosse, Lebenswerk und Nachleben I* (1965) ed. W Braunfels] - in particular the claim that Hugobert and Irmina were parents of the two sisters Adela and Regintrud. He follows and develops (again tentatively) Jarnut's hypothesis that Regintrud married twice. Her first marriage was to a man unknown and by whom she had a daughter Piltrud (Bilitrud/Beletrud/Plektrud) who in turn married successively the brothers Theodold and Grimoald dukes of Bavaria. These two men are known sons of Theodo II. Another son of Theodo II (and his immediate successor) was Theodebert (d. by 717/18) duke of Bavaria. Theodebert was Regintrud's second husband by whom she had Hucbert and Guntrud and possibly a second son who is identified as Tassilo II. So Piltrud married her step-uncles. This hypothesis originally proposed by Jarnut [J Jarnut 'Beitraege zu den fraenkisch-bayerisch-langobardischen Beziehungen im 7. und 8. Jahrhundert (656-783)' in *Zeitschrift fuer bayerische Landesgeschichte* 39 (1976), pp.331-352.] set out to explain the claim in the sources that Swanahild second wife of Charles Martel was the niece of Piltrud and of Odilo duke of Bavaria. According to the Jarnut/Werner hypothesis Swanahild was the daughter of Piltrud's half-brother (possibly Tassilo II) by a sister (possibly named 'Imma') sister of duke Odilo.
