BIOGRAPHY Adalbert was the son of Anscar, margrave of Ivrea. He succeeded as margrave on his father's death in 902. About 900 Adalbert married Gisela of Friaul, daughter of King Berengar I, for whom his father had been chief councillor. They had two children, his successor Berengar II and Bertha who became abbess of Modena. Around 915 he married Ermingard of Tuscany, the daughter of Adalbert II, margrave of Tuscany, count of Canossa and Bertha de Lorraine. In 905 Adalbert rebelled against Berengar I in support of Louis III. When Louis was defeated, captured and blinded, Adalbert was exiled to Burgundy, from where his family had originated. He later returned and rebelled again, this time with Lambert, archbishop of Milan, in support of another rival for the Italian throne, Rudolf II, king of Burgundy. Initially unsuccessful, he and Rudolf jointly defeated Berengar at the Battle of Firenzuola on 29 July 923. Adalbert died later in 923 or in 924, and was succeeded by Berengar II.
