      "The origin of Count Giselbert is unknown. He is one of many aristocrats who appear suddenly in contemporary sources, but whose elevated status in imperial court circles is best explained by existing aristocratic connections which are unrecorded in the surviving primary source documentation. In the specific case of Giselbert, he was sufficiently influential to have had access to the emperor's daughter, whom he married although the marriage was at first unsanctioned by her father."
