Hold was she?

HOW OLD WAS RIVKA WHEN
 SHE MARRIED YITZCHOK?



Tosfos 
( יבמות ס"א ע"ב ד"ה וכן הוא) quotes 
Harav Shmuel Chasid Mi Shapira* (Speyer)"according to the ספרי, Rivka
was 14 years old when she married Yitzchok".

Tosfos concludes that there are
מדרשות חלוקים 
because according to the סדר עולם 
she was only 3 years old.


*R. Shmuel Hachasid was one of the first 
Chasidei Ashkenaz (Kabbalist) He was the 
father of R Yehuda Hachasid and supposedly
wrote the first few Perakim of Sefer Chasidim.
He wasalso the author of the שיר היחוד
