  • Name Oda  
    Born Abt 805/6 
    Gender Female 
    History Oda was born about 805 or 806, the daughter of Count Billung and his wife Aeda. She married Liudolf, a count in Saxony, about the year 836 and they had eleven or twelve children. Oda died on 17 May 913, aged 107, and was buried in the Abbey of Gandersheim, which she had founded in 881.

    In the tenth century, more than half a century after Oda\'s death, Oda\'s descendant Gerberga, who was abbess of Gandersheim, recorded some family details. Hrotsvita, a nun at Gandersheim, wrote a poem _Carmen de primordiis coenobii Gandersheimensis_ which stated that Oda died aged 107 in 913. Hrotsvita also named Oda\'s parents as the ruler (or prince) Billung and Aeda (_\'fila Bilungi cuiusdam principis almi atque bonae famae generosae scilicet Aeda\'_).
