Families covered: Counts of Holland

Probably either Gerulf, Count of Friesland (per GenEU) or Haghen, Count of Aquitaine (per ROYL) was father of ...
1. Theodoric (Dirk) I, Count in Kennemerland
  ROYL reports that Theodoric married Jenna, allegedly a daughter of Pepin, King of Italy (son of Charlemagne), but this is thought unlikely.
  A. Theodoric (Dirk) (d c947)
  ROYL reports that this Theodoric is "omitted by some" and numbers him the second Count of his name. GenEU reports that he probably existed but does not number him. We adopt the numbering used by GenEU.
  i. Theodoric (Dirk) II, Count of West Friesland (b c930, d 06.05.988)
  m. Hildegard of Flanders (d 10.04.990, dau of Arnulf I 'the Great', Count of Flanders and Artois)
  ROYL suggests that Hildegard was daughter of Louis IV, King of France. We follow GenEU.

  m. (05.980) Liutgard of Luxembourg (b c962, d 14.05.1005, dau of Siegfrid, Count of Luxembourg)
