I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

Emma of France (died 935)[1] was a French princess by birth and queen by marriage. She was also variously known as Emma Capet, Emma of Burgundy, and Emma of Neustria.[2] She was the daughter of Robert I of France and either Aelis of Maine[3] or Béatrice of Vermandois. Her family is known as the Robertians.

In c. 921, she married Duke Rudolph of Burgundy.[4] Her spouse was crowned king of Western Francia on 13 July 923 at Saint-Médard de Soissons, thereby making her queen.

She defended her husband's right to the throne against the Carolingian claimant, Charles III "The Simple", and her brother-in-law, Herbert II of Vermandois. Emma captured Avalon in 931, and in 933 led the siege of Château Thierry against Herbert II with King Rudolph's army.[2]

Emma was the first Frankish queen who is known to have been crowned: she was crowned in Reims, by the bishop of Reims called Séulf, the same year but a little later than her spouse, a fact mentioned in contemporary chronicles.

It seems Emma bore only one child, a son named Louis.[5][6] There is a possibility that Emma also had a daughter, and (if so) that she was named Judith.[7]
