di Friuli

The Unruochings of Unrochids, were a Frankish noble family who established themselves in Italy. The family is named for the first member to come to prominence, Unruoch II of Friuli early in the 9th century.

King Berengar I of Italy belonged to this family. Berengar left no male heirs, but the descendants of his daughter Gisela and Adalbert I of Ivrea including their son Berengar II of Italy, Berengar II's son Adalbert, and Adalbert's son Otto-William, Duke of Burgundy, are counted among the Unruochings.

For us, Unrouch II's parentage is a matter of conjecture which we are attempting to straighten out. At this time we are not posting anything.
