French Queen. Born the the daughter of Odo, Comte de Orléans and Ergetrude, at Orleans, Neustria, Loiret, France. She married Charles I of France in 842. The couple had at least nine children, including the future Louis II 'the Stammerer'. She reportedly was well known for her embroidery and had an interest in religious foundations. At least three of her children entered the church, rising to Abbott or Abbess for their respective orders. Additionaly, her husband gave her the Abbey of Chelles. The royal couple separated when the king had his brother-in-law executed for treason in 866, and she retired to a convent. Her name has also been recorded as Hirmentrude and Irmintrud.
