Who is Redburga?
Redburga or Raedburh appears in a late medieval manuscript held by Oxford University as wife of king Egbert of Wessex. She is described there as "regis Francorum sororia", which translates as: "sister of the king of France". The imprecision with which such relational terms were used has caused this phrase to be taken to mean sister of Charlemagne, sister-in-law as the sister of his fourth wife, Luitgard, or some more distant relationship. Her very existence has been questioned, she being found only in manuscript of a much later date, suggested to have been forged to link the early Kings of England to the great West Emperor.
