      "According to Du Chesne in 1625, she was Ermengarde, daughter of Richard 'le Justicier' Duke of Burgundy. More recently this affiliation has been challenged, in particular because she is not mentioned in her supposed mother's will. In addition, if it is correct that Giselbert's mother was the daughter of King Boso (see the document BURGUNDIAN NOBILITY), she would have been her husband's first cousin, which seems unlikely to have been accepted by the church."
