About Adelinde d'Auvergne

She is named as wife of Acfred in their son's grant to Cluny dated 2 Oct 927, her origin being deduced from his reference to "…avunculis meis Wilelmo et Guarino…" in the same document. "Acfredus" donated property to Saint-Julien de Brioude, for the souls of "genitoris mei Acfredi et genitricis meæ Adalendis et avunculorum meorum Garini atque Guillelmi et fratrum meorum Bernardi necnon etiam Guillelmi", by charter dated 11 Oct. m ACFRED, son of ---. His name is confirmed by his son's grant to Cluny dated 2 Oct 927. According to Europäische Stammtafeln, he was Acfred I Comte de Carcassonne ([830/40]-906). The primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified. It is possible that the co-identity is based only on speculation from the Cluny charter of Acfred Duke of Aquitaine, dated 2 Oct 927, which names his parents as Acfred and Adelinda, and on the assumption that Acfred I Comte de Carcassonne was the only contemporary nobleman of this name. Another indication that this co-identity may not be correct is the charter dated 19 Feb 906 under which "Adalindes comitissa", widow of Acfred I Comte de Carcassonne, donated property with the consent of "Acfredo filio Acfredo". If Acfred de Carcassonne was the same person as Acfred, father of the two dukes of Aquitaine, it is surprising that his other two known sons did not consent to, or were not otherwise named in, this donation.
