I know this posting was over 10 years ago but I can't help but ask what makes you thing that one author form the 1800s knew more than another, both may have flawed conclusions,I have read both sides and find gaps in both. I for one will go by the markings on the stone that marks Gundred's grave and that of her husband, it indicataes she is the daughter of William the Conqueror. There may have been many reasons to cover this up early, during or shortly after her time, one big one I would guess was that it was a fear of power, the more lines of descent, the greater the chance that your descendants may lose the throne to a cousin. Don't be too hasty unless you have traveled to Europe and viewed the grave yourself.
