Gisela Carolingian was born 865 to Lothair II of Lotharingia (c835-869) and Waldrada (-) and died 908 of unspecified causes. Notable ancestors include Charlemagne (747-814). Ancestors are from France, Belgium, Germany.

She became abbess of Nivelles and Fosses after her husband was killed and Gerolf van Holland (c850-c895) took over as count of Holland. Gisela died childless.

However, gives her at least two children, including Siegfried de Guînes (920-965) - - who is a link in the shortest path from Charlemagne to Jacinda Ardern.
