  2. Herbert II, Count of Vermandois, in Wikipedia.

    In the genealogy chart of P. Glenn Smith, "Mayflower Quarterly," May 1992, Princess Adela is referred to as Princess Liegarde. She is also called Hildebrante in "Ancestral Roots of Sixty Colonists." On the other hand, Wikipedia indicates that Adela and Hildebrante represent separate people.

    Her name is deduced from a 21 May 907 donation, but is not certain. Other secondary sources give her name as Hildebrand, but in both cases, she is identified as the daughter of Robert I King of France.

  8. Her birth year is estimated based on the estimated year her father remarried, and the estimated birth years of her children. Her birth year may be as early as 887, as suggested by Europäische Stammtafeln, but it was likely later if Guy de Vermandois was her son and Guy's widow later married Nocher Comte de Bar-sur-Aube, as given by one early source (see Medieval Lands).
