bullet  General Notes:


The Calendar of Saints says her first husband was poisoned by his successor.
When she refused to marry the murderer's son, she was imprisoned. King Otto
the Great freed her and married her. He died and her daughter-in-law forced
Adelaide to quit the royal presence. Throughout these troubles she remained
gracious and loving and ws canonised a hundred years after her death.
16 Dec is her feast day.
