    ROTGER, son of --- (-before 31 Oct 900).  According to Settipani[22], his maternal uncle was Hugues Comte de Bourges.
    Comte du Maine 897.  m ([890]) ROTHILDIS, daughter of Emperor CHARLES II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks & his second wife Richildis [de Provence] ([871]-[928/29], maybe [22 Mar 928]).  Flodoard names "Rothildis, amitæ suæ [regis Karoli], socrus autem Hugonis" when recording that the king deprived her of "abbatiam?Golam" [Chelles] in favour of his favourite Hagano, the context dictating that "Hugonis" was "Hugo filius Rotberti"[23].  She acquired the monasteries of Chelles and Notre-Dame and St Jean at Laon.  She retreated to Chelles in 922 but was deprived of the monastery by her nephew Charles III "le Simple" King of the Franks in favour of his favourite Haganon, an event which led to the rebellion of Robert Marquis en Neustrie who was the father of Rothilde's son-in-law (later Hugues "le Grand" Duc des Francs)[24].  Her death is dated to late 928/early 929 as Flodoard names "Rothildis?nuper defunctæ" when recording that "Heribertus et Hugo comites", specifying that "Hugo" was "gener ipsius Rothildis", attacked "Bosonem Rodulfi regis frater" in 929 over the property of Rothilde[25].  Comte Rotger & his wife had two children.
