  • Notes 
    • Hildegarde married Charles I the Great, King of the Franks, son of Pépin III the Short of the Franks and Bertrada of Laon, in 771 in Aix-la-Chapelle (Aachen). (Charles I the Great, King of the Franks was born on 2 Apr 742 and died on 28 Jan 814 in Aix-la-Chapelle, or Aachen, Austrasia.) Marriage Notes: "Later he married a daughter of of Desiderius, King of the Lombards, at the instance of his mother; but he repudiated her at the end of a year for some reason unknown, and married Hildegard, a woman of high birth, of Suabian [note: Swabian, not Serbian] origin.

      Hildegard's Death The Annales Laurissenses record the death "783 pridie Kal Mai" of "Hildegardis regina" and her burial "iuxta urbem Mettensem in basilica apostolorum et beati Arnulfi"[68]. She died from the after effects of childbirth, according to the epitaph of her daughter Hildegard[69]. Paulus Diaconus wrote an epitaph to "Hildegardis regina"
