BIOGRAPHY Willa was born about 911, the daughter of Boso of Arles, margrave of Tuscany, and Willa de Bourgogne. Before 936 she married Berengar II, king of Italy, son of Adalbert 'the Rich', margrave of Ivrea, and Gisela of Friaul. She was the mother of Adalbert, Guy, Konrad and several daughters including Rozala, of whom Adalbert and Rozala are recorded with progeny. It is almost certain that Rozala ('little Red') was a nickname, and that she was christened Susanna, possibly after the biblical Susanna falsely accused by her elders, to emphasise her mother's innocence of the charge of adultery with a chaplain who was tutoring her other daughters. Rozala married twice, and was known as Susanna in and after both marriages. Willa mistreated her first cousin Aelis (Adelheid) de Bourgogne, widow of Lothar, king of Italy, when Berengar held her captive for several months in 951, attempting unsuccessfully to force her to marry his son Adalbert. The chronicler Liutprand of Cremona, raised at the court of Pavia, gives several particular vivid accounts of Willa's character. After Berengar's deposition by Emperor Otto I, who then married Aelis, Willa was held captive in a German nunnery. She died in Bamberg after 966.
