Théodrate of Troyes

Last updated
Théodrate of Troyes
Queen consort of France
Tenure 888–898
Born 868
Died 903
Spouse Odo, Count of Paris

Théodrate of Troyes (868–903) was the wife of Odo, Count of Paris and Queen consort of Western Francia from 888 to 898. Evidence of Théodrate and Odo's children comes from non-contemporary or historically inauthentic sources. The eleventh-century chronicler Adémar de Chabannes wrote that they had a son, Arnoul (c.885-898), who died shortly after his father Odo. [1] Guy is named as one of the couple's children in an Alan I's charter dated 28 August 903, but genealogist Christian Settipani says it's a falsification. [2] The genealogical work Europäische Stammtafeln refers to Raoul (c.882-898) as a son of Odo by Théodrate, but its primary source is not known. [3]

Adémar de Chabannes was an eleventh-century French monk, a historian, a musical composer and a successful literary forger.

The Marches of Neustria were two marches created in 861 by the Carolingian king of West Francia Charles the Bald that were ruled by officials appointed by the crown, known as wardens, prefects or margraves.

The Robertians, or Robertines, was the Frankish predecessor family of origin to the ruling houses of France; it emerged to prominence in the ancient Frankish kingdom of Austrasia as early as the eighth century—in roughly the same region as present-day Belgium—and later emigrated to West Francia, between the Seine and the Loire rivers. The members were ‘forefathers’ of the Capetian dynasty. With fealty to the Carolingians, they held the power of West Francia through the whole period of the Carolingian Empire; and from 888 to 987 theirs was the last extant kingdom of that house until they were succeeded by their own (Robertian) lineage, the house of Capet.
