From Wikipedia - Adelaide of Anjou :

Adelaide[1] (c. 947 -1026 ),[2] called the White,[3] was the daughter of Fulk II of Anjou and Gerberga of Maine . She was therefore the sister of Geoffrey Greymantle . She was married five times to some of France 's most important noblemen.

Her first marriage, probably before 960, was to Stephen, Viscount of Gévaudan . Her second marriage was to Raymond III , Count of Toulouse and Prince of Gothia , in 975. He died in 978.
In 982, she married Louis , the young son of Lothair of France , and the two were jointly crowned Monarchs of Aquitaine on the same day at Brioude . The large difference in age between the spouses was cause for a quick divorce in 984.

She fled then to Arles , where she contracted, against papal advice, a marriage with William I of Provence in 984. She gave him a daughter, Constance of Arles , who later married Robert II of France .
Her final marriage was to Otto-William, Duke of Burgundy .

Variously given as Alice, Adelais, Adalais, or Azalais.
