    ROTHILDIS ([871]-22 Mar 929).  Flodoard names "Rothildis, amitĉ suĉ [regis Karoli], socrus autem Hugonis" when recording that the king deprived her of "abbatiam?Golam" [Chelles] in favour of his favourite Haganon, the context dictating that "Hugonis" was "Hugo filius Rotberti".  As the paternal aunt of King Charles III, chronology determines that she must have been the daughter of her father's second marriage, although no source has so far been identified which states this to be the case.  She acquired the monasteries of Chelles, and Notre-Dame and Saint-Jean at Laon.  She retreated to Chelles in 922 but was deprived of the monastery by her nephew Charles III "le Simple" King of the West Franks in favour of his favourite Haganon, an event which led to the rebellion of Robert Marquis en Neustrie who was the father of Rothilde's son-in-law (Hugues, later "le Grand" Duc des Francs).  Her death is dated to late 928/early 929 as Flodoard names "Rothildis?nuper defunctĉ" when recording that "Heribertus et Hugo comites" (specifying that "Hugo" was "gener ipsius Rothildis") attacked "Bosonem Rodulfi regis frater" in 929 over the property of Rothilde.  This is also the only source so far identified from which her marriage is deduced.  The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés records the death "XI Kal Apr" of "Rothildis abbatisse et monache filia regis magni Karoli".  The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Denis records the death "XI Kal Mar" of "Rotildis abbatissa".  These entries could refer alternatively to Rothildis, daughter of Emperor Charlemagne, but it is more likely that the former entry would have referred to her father as "imperator" if that was the case.  m ([890]) ROTGER [Roger] Comte, nephew of HUGUES Comte de Bourges (-before 31 Oct 900).  Comte du Maine 897.
