!AInfoNew* 650 Weis' "Ancestral Roots . . ." (181:1) is silent regarding her parentage.

Some sources, e.g. Turton's "Plantagenet Ancestry," show her as a daughter of Sigebert III, King of Austrasia, but there has never been a descent from the Merovingian kings documented to the
satisfaction of serious genealogists, and this is among those no longer accepted.

Settipani's "La prehistoire de Capetiens" p.106 says (in French):
"In the 12th century, the Chronicle of Ebbersheim affirmed that Bereswinda, niece of St. Leger of Autun, wife of the duke of Alsace Adalric Ethic, was the sister of a queen. Chronologically, the
queen in question, who cannot be identified as Baldechildis, of humble Saxon origin, nor as Bilichildis, daughter of king Sigebert III could well be Chimnechildis [wife of Sigebert III and of unkown origin]."6 
Marriage Berswinde de France married Eticho Duke of Alsace, son of Leutharius Mayor of the Palace.5,1
