His brother Hilduin the Young was the abbot of Saint-Denis. His brother Wulgrin I of Angoulême was appointed Count of Angoulême and Périgord. Adalard followed his uncle Leuthard II.

Adalard had two children: a son named Wulfhard and a daughter called Adelaide of Paris (850 – 10 November 901). She married King Louis II of France and had two children with him.
