Gaitelgrima, daughter of Guaimar IV

Gaitelgrima (fl. 1091), was the daughter of Guaimar IV of Salerno and Gemma. She was married off by her brother, Gisulf II of Salerno, to Jordan I of Capua, as was her sister, Sichelgaita, to Robert Guiscard. She was regent of Capua in 1091.

After being widowed by Jordan 1091, she took up the regency of her sons, Richard, Robert, and Jordan. Later the same year, however, she was expelled from Capua by the citizens, who elected one Count Lando as their prince, and she took her sons with her to Aversa. In Sarno, she sheltered her brother Gisulf in his final days and there he is buried. She remarried to Alfred, Count of Sarno, and it was to Sarno that she retired eventually.
