Note
Some sources, eg. World Book 2000, © 1999 IBM Corporation, suggest that Bertrada or Bertha was known as "Queen Goose-Foot" or "Goose-Footed Bertha", and is the original “Mother Goose”. Hence, we can also list “Mother Goose” among our illustrious forebears. Bertha or Bertrada II of Laon also known as "Bertha Broadfoot". She was the daughter of Caribert (or Herbert), Count of Laon and granddaughter of Bertha, a Merovingian Princess who was in turn a daughter of Thierry (III), King of Austrasia, Neustria and Burgundy.
