French Aristocracy. Born the daughter of Bouchard de Vendôme, Comte de Vendôme and Elizabeth de Corbiel. She married Foulques III Comte d'Anjou, known as 'the Black' c. 990 and with him had one daughter, Adele, the future Comtesse de Vendôme. According to the 'Annales de Saint-Aubin,' there was a report that she was burned by Foulques for adultery, a charge generally thought to be false. Alternate reports state she was executed for adultery and witchcraft by boiling, or that she died in a fire in Angers, most histories prefer the first possibility, though a fire burned the city of Angers within days of her reported death.
