Meaning of the baby name ADELHEID.

  

ADELHEID.  From Teutonic Adelheidis (q.v.), meaning "a noble person."  All the feudal princes of the tenth and eleventh centuries seem to have had an Adelheid to offer in marriage. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Also see Adalheid.  Usage: Germany, Holland, Switzerland.

... Just about one hundred years after the death of Etheldritha in 931, was born one Adelheid (noble maiden) who at the age of sixteen married Lothaire, King of Italy; three years later Lothaire was poisoned, and his widow invited King Otto I. of Germany into Italy, to fight against her enemy Duke Berengarius or Berenger who had seized the crown.
    Adelheid was taken prisoner by Berengarius, but escaped, and again inviting Otto over, finally married him in 951-2.  In 973 Otto died and Adelheid was appointed Regent during the minority of her grandson, Otto III.  Adelheid was canonized and is known as Saint Adelheid or Adelaide... (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905)
