The PEDIGREE of
Bertrada (Bertha) II `Broadfoot' of LAON

     `the White Lady'; (of MEROVINGIAN descent)

    Note: She was almost certainly descended from Merovingian Kings, but the details are uncertain. One piece of evidence often cited is that the historian Ademar of Chabannes called King Clothar IV and Charles Martel `cousins.' Bertrada was just Martel's daughter-in-law, so how does one explain the relevance? Assuming the depicted pedigree, see that Martel was the nephew by marriage of the Merovingian King Thierry III of Neustria. But what, finally, does this prove?
