- There is a lot of discrepancies between published genealogies as to the parents of Hedwiga. One theory is that Henry of Franconia (d. ca. 0886) is her father. Another states that Arnulph (d. ca. 899), King of Germany and Emporer, was her father. And a third theory suggests that Louis II "the German", King of East Francia (d. ca. 876) was her father. If any of these are correct, then Hedwiga would be a descendant of Charlemagne.
