A straight-forward reconstruction of the family of the early dukes of Gascony is hampered by information which is included the method of collection of anamnesis of life and illness of the child spurious source documents.
For this reason it is considered in two parts below. The wording of these documents is unusually detailed and atypical of other contemporary Carolingian charters, strongly suggesting that they are spurious. The date of the fabrication is not known with certainty. He highlights that “Comte Vandregisile”, alleged founder of Alarcon according to this series of documentation, is first mentioned by Juan Tamayo de Salazar in his work on Spanish saints, which was published in 1658. A small part of the genealogical information in the Alarcon documentation is corroborated by other primary sources, including the Annales Metenses and the Continuator of Fredegar. Other parts of the information are clearly incorrect, for example the statement that Boggis Duke of Aquitaine was the son of Charibert II King of the Franks in Aquitaine, the younger half-brother of the Merovingian King Dagobert I. The reconstruction set out in the first chapter should therefore be treated with considerable caution.
Chapter 2 sets out the limited reconstruction of the family of the early dukes of Gascony which is possible based only on information in other surviving primary sources. This information is sparse, and it can quickly be appreciated that there are numerous possible reconstructions other than the one based on the Alarcon documents. His parentage has not been corroborated by other primary sources consulted. The name of Loup’s wife is not known. The name of Adalric’s wife is not known. Part B below, but other indications suggest that this is probably incorrect as discussed in more detail below.
