Wigerich de Lorraine was born circa 880 and died circa 919 of unspecified causes. He married Cunegonde di Friuli (c893-aft923) circa 990 JL .

His first name is alternatively spelled as Wigerich, Wigeric, Wigerik, Wideric, Wederic, Wigericus, Widericus, Windericus and Widiacus. He was count of Bidgau, count in Trier, and count palatine of Lotharingia. He received also the advocacy of the abbey of Saint Rumbold's at Mechelen from Charles III of France. He was the founder of the House of Ardennes.

At the death of Louis the Child, the Lotharingians rejected the suzerainty of Conrad I and elected Charles of France as their king. At the time, the military authority in Lotharingia was assigned to Count Reginar I of Hainaut, but at his death it fell to Wigerich, who became count palatine, exercising as such the military authority in Lotharingia.
