Fastraʹde (2 syl.)

.

Daughter of the Saxon count Rodolph and Luitgarde the German. One of the nine wives of Charlemagne.

“Those same soft bells at eventide

Rang in the ears of Charlemagne,

As, seated by Fastraʹda’s side

At Ingelheim, in all his pride,

He heard their sound with secret pain.”


Longfellow: Golden Legend, vi.
