About Bertha of the Obertenghi, of Milan of Luni

Probably the same as her sister Bertha, queen of Italy
There are 2 distinct pages also on wikipedia, which however report the probability, which we also find on her father's Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otbert_II,_Margrave_of_Milan :

  • half of the languages report the thesis of a single Berta. (the other half don't specify)
  • MedLands simply quotes them in place 3) and 6) distinctly without specifications.

(it is certainly a beautiful coincidence that King Arduin is forced to abdicate and become a friar in exile in the mountains in 1013... and a sister of the same name from Berta is married in 1014... and Arduino dies in 1015... but what happened to the former Queen? :)

There is no document in MedLands that contradicts the thesis of a single Berta .. only the date of birth c.997 assigned to Berta(6) by whom or what? [and the "c." of MedLands are very elastic]


  Oberto [II] & his wife had six children: 

3) BERTA . "Ardoinus…rex" confirmed the rights of the church of Como in the bridges and county of Chiavenna "quæ Hicila filia comitis Ottonis in villa Slopence in pago Ratenzgowe et in comitatu Adalberti comitis habuit" by charter dated 25 Mar 1002 which names "Berta regina nostra coniunx nostrique regni consors"[341].

Ulric Manfred married Bertha (born 997) of the Obertenghi, daughter of Oberto II, in 1014. That year, the Emperor Henry confirmed their joint donation to the abbey of Fruttuaria. On 29 December 1037, the Emperor Conrad confirmed a donation to San Giusto expressly without her. She must therefore have died in the meanwhile. Other than his aforementioned heir, Adelaide, Ulric Manfred had two other daughters:

   * Irmgard (also Emilia or Immula; died 28 January 1078), married Otto III, Duke of Swabia

* Bertha (died after 1050), inherited Vasto and Busco, married Otto, Marquis of Liguria (a great-grandson of Aleram) and was the mother of Boniface del Vasto
Notes:

The Obertenghi were a family of Italian nobility descended from Count Obert I of Luni, the first margrave of Milan and Eastern Liguria, a march called the marca Januensis, marca Obertenga or march of Genoa.

Early in 951, Berengar II of Italy finished the reorganisation of the Italian feudal structure begun by his predecessor Hugh. He named three new margraves to three new territories:

   * Aleram, Count of Vercelli, he named margrave of Western Liguria: (Vercelli, Monferrato, Ceva, Acqui Terme, Oneglia, Albenga) (marca Aleramica);

* Arduin Glaber was elevated from count to margrave of Turin: (Torino, Ivrea, Maritime Alps, Nizza, Ventimiglia, Sanremo) (the marca Arduinica);
* Obert I margrave of Milan and count of Luni, was given the new marca Obertenga, Milan and Eastern Liguria. Eastern Liguria at this time contained the counties of Genoa, Luni, Tortona, Bobbio, Parma and Piacenza,Modena and Reggio Emilia, Ferrara, Ascoli Piceno.
The Obertenghi margraviate was the source of the fiefs of the Este, Pallavicini, Malaspina, Fieschi, Della Torre, Visconti of Gallura, Parodi, Pinelli, Lupi, Massa, Della Berardenga, Cavalcabò, Adalbertina, etc.
