Gisela De France Of Neustria
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Gisela of Neustria was the elder daughter of the Emperor Louis I the Pious (816 840) and his second wife Judith of Altdorf, the daughter of Welf II, Count of Altdorf, and was full sister to the Emperor Charles II the Bald (875 877). The Emperor Louis caused Gisela to be married (c836) to Count Eberhard (c810 866) the son of Unruoch, a count of the empire. The marriage was designed to gain the support of the powerful Unruoching family for the weakening power of the Imperial crown.
In consequence of this marriage with an imperial princess, Eberhard was given the government of the region of Friuli, north of Venice, and was created the first hereditary duke. At Eberhard's death Duchess Gisela inherited his entire private library, and three of their daughters inherited legacies of specific books. Gisela of Friuli made her will (July 1, 874) and died soon afterwards, being interred with Eberhard within the Abbey of St Calixtus at Cysoing.
Through her daughter Heiliwich of Ostrevant Gisela was the direct ancestress of Aethelred II, King of England (978 1016), and of the noble English family, the Tracys of Toddington, whose coat of arms proudly displays their descent from the Emperor Charlemagne (800 814). Her children were,

Eberhard of Friuli (c837 before June 2, 840). He died in infancy.
Ingeltrude of Friuli (c839 after 874). She became the wife of Henry of Saalgau and Grabfeldgau (c830 886), Duke of Austrasia and left descendants.
Unruoch II (c840 874). He succeeded his father as Duke of Friuli (866 874) and was married to Ava of Alsace, the daughter of Luitfrid II of Alsace, Count of Sundgau and left issue.
Judith of Friuli (Waldrada) (c842 c902). She married firstly to Konrad II of Auxerre, Margrave of Burgundy, and secondly to Adalbert II (c837 c905), Count of Thurgau and left descendants from both marriages.
Berengar I of Friuli (c843 924). He became Holy Roman Emperor (905 924) and was married three times and left issue.
Bertha of Friuli (c844 after 874). She became the second wife of Sigisbert (died c885), Count of Razes and left issue.
Adalhard of Friuli (c845 after 874). He became Marquis of Friuli and was lay Abbot of St Amand. He was married and left issue.
Gisela of Friuli (c847 after 863). No husband is recorded for her and she may have died unmarried.
Rudolf of Friuli (Raoul, Ralph) (c850 892). He took holy orders and became the Abbot of the abbeys of St Vaast and St Bertin.
Heiliwich of Friuli (c857 936). She was married firstly to Count Hucbald of Ostrevant (died c891) and secondly to Count Roger I of Laon (died 898), and left issue from both marriages. From: A Bit of History
