RESEARCH NOTES: Gepide Princess [Ref: Houdry CharlAnc] FWIW, Settipani's reconstruction of Charlemagne's ancestry suggests a somewhat more plausible descent from Attila. (More plausible, that is, on grounds of overall historical situation, and relative temporal contiguity.) According to S., one of C.'s ancestresses is Austricusa, apparently attested as a Gepid princess. What isn't attested is which Gepid king was her father; it has been suggested, on chronological grounds, that it was Elemund. The 6th-century Gepid kings apparently claimed descent from the first Gepid king, Ardaric, who had initially served (in the vicinity of 450) as a henchman of Attila; it was also claimed that Ardaric had married a daughter of Attila (presumably one of many, as Attila seems to have been a polygamist). It seems that at least some royal Gepids of the 5th century claimed descent from that marriage. (My apologies for the vagueness of this acount; partly due to incompleteness of detail in the originals, partly to the fact that I recount from memory.) [Ref: Marshall Kirk SGM 6/22/1998-131705]
