NEBE [Hnabi] . "Nebe" son of "Huochingus" is named by Thegan[26]. m HERESWINT, daughter of --- & his wife [Williswint] ---. Hereswint is named as wife of Nebe

Not a lot is known of Hereswind. From the Wikipedia page on Hnabi, her husband:

  • Hnabi in English Wikipedia
  • By his wife Hereswind, Hnabi or Nebi (c. 710 – c. 788) left at least two children, Ruadbert (Rodbert, Robert), who was count (graf) in the Hegau (from 770), and Imma or Emma (died c. 785), who married Gerold of Vintzgau and was the mother of Eric of Friuli and Hildegard (758-783), wife of Charlemagne. Rodbert son of Hnabi is mentioned in a St. Gall document dated 770. Imma is mentioned in documents of Lorsch, Fulda and St. Gall between 779 and 804.

Ben M. Angel notes: It appears that the following source is self-referential. All the information was taken from Geni, and is apparently being used here to support an apparently impossible assertion that Roberto (cited as being born c700), and Gullesvinda (cited as being born sometime around 670-730) are the parents. As there doesn't appear to be a reliable source that isn't based on a self-perpetuating assertion between two online websites, I'm cutting the cycle and removing the parents. If there is a real source that shows Roberto and Gullesvinda as parents, please let me know.
