Adelaide, Countess of Vermandois

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adelaide of Vermandois (died 23 Sep 1120) was suo jure Countess of Vermandois and Valois from 1080 to 1102.

Adelaide was daughter of Herbert IV, Count of Vermandois and Adele of Valois.[1]

By 1080,[2] Adelaide married Hugh, son of the Capetian King Henry I of France and younger brother of Philip I of France.[3] Her husband, Hugh, became Count of Vermandois, following her father's death.[a][4]

In 1104, she married Renaud II, Count of Clermont.[5] By this marriage, she had daughter, Margaret of Clermont.

In 1102, Adelaide was succeeded by her son, Ralph I. Adelaide died in 1120. Since the Carolingian dynasty passed power and legitimacy through male heirs, all of whom had by now died without sons, she is considered the last member of the great Carolingian dynasty.
