RHF 10, 324 (year only); Ex Obituario Gemmeticensi, RHF 23, 417 (4 Jan.); Notæ Monasterii Montis Sancti Micaelis, RHF 23, 576 (8 Jan.)].

- ↑ Wikipedia gives a birth year of about 936, but lists children born as late as 985. Cawley estimates a birth year of about 950, which appears to fit better not only with her own children, but also with other family members.
