  • Title: A Missing Capetian Princess: Advisa, Daughter of King Robert II of France [Historical sources are inconsistent on the number and names of the daughters of the Capetian King Robert II of France. One of Robert's daughters was married off to Raynald, Count of Nevers, in order to build an alliance between the Capetian dynasty and the family of Nevers. The author identifies this daughter as Advisa, who married Raynald sometime after January 1016. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
