As below, I wrote that "Sichelgaita, a daughter of Pandolf of Salerno, lord
of Capaccio, may have been the first wife of Roger I, lord of Rota
She was a different woman from the famous Sichelgaita (daughter of Waimar
IV, prince of Salerno) who maried Robert Guiscard.
Sichelgarda is not only another different woman (daughter of Landolf of
Salerno, lord of Policastro), but her name is also different.
