  General Notes:

Charles of Lorraine (953-993) was the son of King Louis IV of France and Gerberga. Having been excluded from the throne of France, Charles became Duke of Lower Lorraine. While waging war for the French throne, with his cousin, Hugh Capet, Charles was taken prisoner and was confined until his death in 993. Charles married Adelheid. Among their children were Gerberga of Lorraine, who married Lambert I; and Ermengarde of Lorraine, who married Albert II, Count of Namur.

Ifølge Bent og Vidar Billing Hansen i "Rosensverdslektens forfedre" var Karl først gift med Agnes av Troyes (955-982) og dernest med Adelheid. Gerberga skal være hans datter i det første ektskapet med Agnes.
