     Adelidis/Adeliza (Alice) de Normandie was born in 1055 at Normandy, France.2 She and Harold II Godwinson (?) King of England were engaged between 1064 and 1065.2,7
Adelidis/Adeliza (Alice) de Normandie died circa 1066; Ashley says d. ca 1066; Med Lands says d. 7 Dec, 1066 or after.8,2
     ; Per The Henry Project: “Adelaide (or Adeliza), a nun, died a virgin. [OV iii (vol. 2, pp. 104-5), iv (vol. 2, pp. 224-5), v, 11 (vol. 3, pp. 114-7); GND (Rob. Tor.) vii, 13 (31) vol. 2, pp. 260-1: Adelida]”.9 She was a nun.8,1

; Per Med Lands:
     "ADELISA de Normandie ([1055]-7 Dec, 1066 or after). Guillaume of Jumièges records that Duke Guillaume betrothed “Heraldum” to “Adelizam filiam suam” after rescuing Harold from “Widonis Abbatisvillæ comitis” and bringing him back to Normandy[53]. Orderic Vitalis names “Adelizam et Constantiam, Ceciliam et Adalam” as the daughters of “Willermus Normanniæ dux” and his wife “Mathildem Balduini ducis Flandrensium filiam, neptem...ex sorore Henrici regis Francorum”[54]. In another passage, the same source names the daughters “Agatham et Constantiam, Adelizam, Adelam et Ceciliam”[55], and in a third place “Agathen ac Adelizam, Constantiam, Adalam et Ceciliam”[56]. Orderic Vitalis records the betrothal of Adelaide and Harold, listing her after Agatha and before Constance in his description of the careers of the daughters of King William[57] (although in another passage he names Agatha as the daughter who was betrothed to Harold[58]). The sources are contradictory regarding the name of the daughter who was betrothed to Harold, as well as the timing of her death. The only near certainty is that it would presumably have been the oldest available daughter who was betrothed to Harold. Matthew Paris does not name her but lists her fourth among the daughters of King William, while distinguishing her from the fifth daughter betrothed to "Aldefonso Galiciæ regi"[59]. Guillaume de Jumièges records that the (unnamed in this passage) daughter who was betrothed to Harold was the third daughter and that she died a virgin although she was of an age to marry[60]. Orderic Vitalis says that Adelaide "a most fair maiden vowed herself to God when she reached marriageable age and made a pious end under the protection of Roger of Beaumont"[61]. The daughter betrothed to Harold was alive in early 1066, according to Eadmer of Canterbury[62] who says that Duke Guillaume requested King Harold, soon after his accession, to keep his promise to marry his daughter. This is contradicted by William of Malmesbury[63], who says that her death before that of Edward "the Confessor" was taken by King Harold II as marking absolution from his oath to Duke Guillaume. She died as a nun at Préaux[64]. A manuscript of la Trinité de Caen names "Mathildem Anglorum reginam, nostri cœnobii fondatricem, Adilidem, Mathildem, Constantiam, filias eius" heading the list of the names of nuns at the abbey[65], which, if the order of names is significant, indicates that Adelaide was older than her two named sisters. The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "VII Id Dec" of "Adeliza filia regis Anglorum", stating that her father made a donation for her soul[66]. The necrology of Saint-Nicaise de Meulan records the death of "Adelina filia regis Anglorum", undated but listed among deaths at the end of the calendar year[67].
     "Betrothed ([1064/65]) to HAROLD Earl of Wessex, son of GODWIN Earl of Wessex & his wife Gytha of Denmark ([1022/25]-killed in battle Hastings 14 Oct 1066, bur [Waltham Abbey]), who succeeded in 1066 as HAROLD II King of England."

     Agatha (?) de Normandie was born circa 1064 at Normandy, France.6 She and Alfonso VI "the Brave" (?) King of León & Castile were engaged in 1069; Med Lands says "Betrothed (by proxy Caen, Abbey of Holy Trinity before [1069]) to AGATHE de Normandie."7 Agatha (?) de Normandie and Simon de Valois Comte de Valois, d'Amiens, et de Montdidier, Comte de Bar-sur-Aub were engaged after 1069.8,3
Agatha (?) de Normandie died circa 1074 at Calvados, Normandy, France.6,1
     ; Per Med Lands:
     "ALFONSO de Castilla y León, son of FERNANDO I "el Magno" King of Castile and León & his wife Sancha de León (Compostela [1038/40]-Toledo 30 Jun 1109, bur Sahagún, León, San Mancio chapel in the royal monastery of Santos Facundo y Primitivo). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names (in order) "Urraca, Sancho, Alfonso, García and Elvira" and the children of King Fernando and Queen Sancha[457]. According to the Chronicle of Sahagún, Alfonso was 72 years old when he died[458], but this must be overstated if he was his parents' fourth child as stated in Historia Silense[459]. It is more likely that he was born in [1038/40]. Ferdinand I King of Castile confirmed the union of the monastery of San Martín del Río with San Pedro de Cardeñas by charter dated 31 Aug 1050, subscribed by "Sanctius prolis regis, Adefonsus filius regis, Garsea filio regis, Urraca filia regis, Tegridia filia regis…"[460]. "Fredernandus…Legionensis rex…cum coniuge mea regina dna Sancia et filiis meis" confirmed the privileges of Santiago de Compostela by charter dated 10 Mar 1065, subscribed by "Sancius filius regis, Adefonsus filius regis, Garsea filius regis, Urraca filia regis, Geloira filia regis…"[461]. Under the partition of lands in his father’s will, he received León and the parias from the Taifa state of Toledo, succeeding in 1065 as ALFONSO VI King of León. Relations between Alfonso and his two brothers were tense. Although Alfonso and Sancho cooperated to deprive their brother García of Galicia, Sancho turned against Alfonso soon afterwards and defeated him at Golpejera Jan 1072. He was exiled to Toledo, seeking refuge with the Dhul-Nunid King[462]. He returned to León after the murder of his brother, arriving [10] Nov 1072, and was accepted before 8 Dec 1072 as ALFONSO VI King of Castile. Pursuing his father's close connections with the monastery of Cluny, he granted the order its first monastic house in Castile at San Isidro de Dueñas 29 May 1073, as well as doubling the annual census payment to Cluny in 1077[463]. The Roman liturgy was adopted in Castile and León in 1076. After the death in Jun 1076 of Sancho IV “él de Peñalén” King of Navarre, King Alfonso succeeded as King of Navarre: a charter dated 1076 records that Alfonso VI King of Castile ("Adefonsus filius Fredinandi regis") succeeded to the kingdom after "impiisima fraude interfecto rege Sancio, Garsie...regis filius"[464]. Pope Gregory VII asserted papal suzerainty over Spain 28 Jun 1077, although King Alfonso's response appears to have been to declare himself "imperator totius hispaniae", the first known use of this title being 17 Oct 1077[465]. King Alfonso VI took advantage of the assassination of Sancho IV King of Navarre in 1076 to invade Navarre, annexing La Rioja, Álava, Vizcaya and Guipúzcoa to Castile. Turning his attention to the reconquest of Moorish territories, Alfonso recaptured Toledo 25 May 1085, besieged Zaragoza in 1086, and also imposed his Government on the kingdom of Valencia, where he installed as ruler the deposed al-Qadir ex-taifa King of Toledo. His ambitions were, however, thwarted by al-Mu'tamid King of Seville who, with the help of Yusuf bin Tashfin Emir of the Almoravids, defeated King Alfonso at Sagrajas near Badajoz 23 Oct 1086. The Almoravids rapidly consolidated their position, absorbing the taifa kingdoms of Granada and Seville and subduing Jaén, Almería, Denia and Murcia. Undeterred, Alfonso recaptured Córdoba in 1091, and persuade Al-Mutawakkil of Badajoz to cede him Lisbon, Santarem and Sintra between 30 Apr and 8 May 1093, although Badajoz itself was captured by the Almoravids in early 1094. Meanwhile Rodrigo Díaz "el Cid" recaptured Valencia, establishing himself there as an autonomous prince. Previously his bitter enemy, Alfonso eventually united with him to fight the Moors. He also spread the call overseas, especially in France, for a general crusade to fight 'the infidel'. "Adefonsus rex Legionis et totius Hispanie imperator atque Fredenandi filius regis" granted privileges to Santiago de Compostela, with the advice of "generis mei comitis domini Raimundi", by charter dated 28 Jan 1090[466]. The end of his reign was marred by a crushing defeat at Uclés 29 May 1108, where his son was killed. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium records that King Alfonso lived for 79 years and reigned for 43 years and six months, died in Toledo 1 Jul "in the era 1147 (1109)" and was buried "in the church of saints Facundus and Primitivus"[467]. The Chronicon Lusitanum records the death “III Kal Jul” in 1147 (1109) of “Rex D. Alfonsus Regis D. Fernandi filius”[468].
     "Betrothed (by proxy Caen, Abbey of Holy Trinity before [1069]) to AGATHE de Normandie, daughter of WILLIAM I King of England Duc de Normandie & his wife Mathilde de Flandres ([1064]-before 1074, bur Bayeux Cathedral). According to William of Malmesbury, an unnamed daughter of King William was "affianced by messengers" to King Alfonso[469]. Orderic Vitalis names her Agatha, identifying her as the daughter who had been betrothed to Harold Godwinson (see above), and says that she was betrothed to "Amfursio regi Galliciæ"[470]. Matthew of Paris places her as the fifth daughter (unnamed) betrothed to "Aldefonso Galiciæ regi" but different from the daughter betrothed to Harold[471]. Orderic says that she died en route to Spain, her body being brought back to Bayeux for burial[472]. The betrothal to Alfonso must have been a short-lived arrangement as he married his first wife in 1069[473].
     "m firstly (betrothed 1069, [late 1073/early 1074], repudiated after 22 May 1077) [as her first husband,] AGNES d’Aquitaine, daughter of GUILLAUME VIII Duke of Aquitaine [GUILLAUME VI Comte de Poitou] & his second wife Mathilde --- ([1059]-[6 Jun 1078 or after 1099], bur [Sahagún, León, royal monastery of Santos Facundo y Primitivo]). The Chronicle of Saint-Maxence records that the only daughter of "Goffredus" and his second wife was the wife of "Hildefonsi regis, filii Freelandi et nepotis Garsii", in a later passage recording their marriage in 1069[474]. She was known as INÉS in Castile. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Ines" ("Agnetam") as the first of the "five legitimate wives" of King Alfonso[475]. The De Rebus Hispaniæ of Rodericus Ximenes names "Agnes" as first wife of "rex Aldefonsus"[476]. "Agnes regina" confirmed the donation to Cluny by "Adefonsus…princeps" dated 22 May 1077[477]. No later reference has been found in charters to Queen Inés. Reports of her subsequent history are mutually contradictory. Orderic Vitalis refers to the second marriage of "Agnetem filiam Guillelmi Pictavorum ducis relictam Hildefonsi senioris Galiciae regis" with Hélie Comte du Maine[478]. However, Sandoval records that "la Reyna Doña Ines" died 6 Jun 1078 according to "las memorias del tumbo negro de Santiago"[479]. The accuracy of this statement is uncertain as, in the same passage, Sandoval states that the same source records the death in the same year "II Kal Jun" of "Sancius Rex filius Alfonsi Regis". This latter entry presumably refers to the death of Sancho, son of King Alfonso VI, at the battle of Uclés in 1108, but it casts doubt on the accuracy of the year of the death of Queen Inés. Another date is introduced by the Annales Compostellani which record the death "VIII Id Jun" in 1098 of “Regina Agnes”[480]. This is the same day and month as stated in the tumbo negro, so it is possible that the year is wrongly given, although it is also possible that the Annales Compostelani are referring to the death of the wife of Pedro I King of Aragon (who must have died in 1097 or before). Reilly[481] says that Queen Constanza was buried next to Queen Inés, which implies that the latter predeceased her successor. The primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified, although if it is correct it does seem surprising that the repudiated queen remained in Castile until she died and that she was buried in the royal monastery. If Orderic Vitalis is correct, Queen Inés must have been repudiated by her husband and later returned to France where she married secondly (after 1099) as his second wife, Hélie Comte du Maine. Another possibility is that Orderic´s passage misstates the name "Agnetem" for "Beatricem", and that the second wife of Comte Hélie was King Alfonso VI´s widow Beatrix whose family origin is not otherwise recorded and who would therefore have been a younger daughter of Duke Guillaume VIII (see below). According to Kerrebrouck[482], Agnès d'Aquitaine never existed. He says that the first wife of King Alfonso VI was Inés de Guzmán, although he does not name her parents or precise origin.
     "m secondly (Dec 1079) as her second husband, CONSTANCE de Bourgogne, widow of HUGUES [II] Comte de Chalon, daughter of ROBERT I Duke of Burgundy [Capet] & his first wife Hélie de Semur ([after 1045]-[25 Jul/25 Oct] 1093, bur Sahagún, León, royal monastery of Santos Facundo y Primitivo). The Chronicon Trenorciensi records that "Constantiæ…filia Roberti Ducis" married firstly "Hugonis Cabilonensis Comitis" and secondly "Hispaniæ Rex Adefonsus "[483]. Considering the estimated date of her first marriage, it is unlikely that Constance was born before [1045]. A charter dated 1087 of "Ducem Burgundiæ Oddonem" recalls a donation to Tournus abbey by "comitissa Cabillonensis filia Rotberti ducis", after the death of "mariti sui Hugonis comitis", adding that she subsequently became "Regina Galliciæ et Hispaniarum"[484]. "Infanta donna Urraka Regis domni Adefonsi filia" names her mother "Constantie regina" in her donation to Cluny dated 22 Feb 1117 "Spanish Era"[485], although the date was presumably AD as 1117 Spanish Era was equivalent to 1079 AD. An early 12th century document at Fleury records that "filiam Roberti ducis Bugundionem…Constantiam" married Alfonso VI King of Castile and was mother of a daughter who married "Raymundo comiti"[486]. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Queen Constance" as the second of the "five legitimate wives" of King Alfonso[487]. Her second marriage date is estimated based on the likely estimated death date of her first husband in [Nov/early Dec] 1079 and her subscribing a document dated 25 Dec 1079 at Dueñas with her second husband[488]. Queen Constance was instrumental in having the Roman rite replace the Visigothic rite in the churches of Castile. "Adefonsus…Hispaniarum rex…cum coniuge mea Constantia regina" donated property to the monastery of San Salvador de Oña by charter dated 1 May 1092[489]. The date of her death is fixed by her last known mention in a charter dated 25 Jul 1093 and a donation by King Alfonso to the monastery of Sahagún dated 25 Oct 1093, which does not include Queen Constanza's name in the subscription list[490]. The 13th century history of Sahagún monastery records that "la Reyna Doña Constanza" was buried in the monastery[491]. Pérez´s history of Sahagún monastery, published in 1782, states that "Doña Berta…Reyna…está enterrada no lejos de Doña Constanza en la Capilla" of the monastery, but does not quote the inscription which confirms this statement[492].
     "m thirdly ([Dec] 1094) BERTA, daughter of --- (-early Jan 1100, bur Sahagún, León, royal monastery of Santos Facundo y Primitivo). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Berta, who was of Tuscan descent" as the third of the "five legitimate wives" of King Alfonso[493]. The De Rebus Hispaniæ of Rodericus Ximenes names "Berta ex Tusca oriunda" as third wife of "rex Aldefonsus"[494]. Las crónicas anónimas de Sahagún refer to her as "otra mugger de la nacion de Lombardia llamada Berta". The precise origin of Berta is not known. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[495], she was Berta de Bourgogne [Comté], daughter of Guillaume I Comte Palatin de Bourgogne, Comte de Vienne et de Macon, which is inconsistent with the "Tuscan descent" reported in the Chronicon Regum Legionensium. Szabolcs de Vajay suggests that she was the daughter of Guillaume Comte de Bourgogne[496]. Reilly does not mention this possible Burgundian origin of Berthe, implying that the Castilian king chose his third wife from outside the Burgundian circle in order to diminish the influence of the Burgundians at court. As Berthe de Bourgogne would have been the sister of Raymond de Bourgogne who married Infanta Urraca, oldest legitimate daughter of King Alfonso, around the same time that King Alfonso married Queen Berta, it is surprising that the chronicles do not refer to this relationship if it is correct. The references to "Tuscia" and "Lombardia" in the chronicles could be consistent with the family of Bourgogne [Comté] having originated in northern Italy, their ancestors being Marchesi of Ivrea until 968, although this was nearly 130 years before the date of Queen Berta's marriage. Reilly dates this marriage to "during the Christmas season of 1094", but does not state his source[497]. In a later passage, Reilly states that the first reference to Berta as queen is dated 28 Apr 1095[498]. "Adefonsus…Ispanie imperator" permitted the abbey of Silos to establish outposts near the abbey, with the consent of "uxoris mee Berte regine", by charter dated 20 Jan [1096/98], confirmed by "Garcia Ordoniz et comes…Gomiz Gonçalviz armiger regis, Fernando Munoz maiordomus regis, Didago Albariz, Fernando Ansuriz, Gutier Munoz, Ruderico Gonçalviz, Monio Roderiquiz, Didago Bermudez, Petro Gonçalviz…"[499]. "Adefonsus…totius Hispanie imperator" granted rights to the abbey of Silos, with the consent of "uxoris mee Berte regine", by charter dated 19 May 1097[500]. "Adefonsus…tocius Ispanie imperator" donated property to the abbey of Silos, with the consent of "uxoris mee Berte regine", by charter dated 30 Sep 1098, confirmed by the same persons as in the earlier charter dated 20 Jan [1096/98][501]. "…Berta…regina…" subscribed the charter dated 14 Mar 1099 under which Alfonso VI King of Castile donated the monastery of Santa María de Algadefe to the monastery of Eslonza[502]. According to Reilly, Queen Berta died shortly after the new year 1100, probably before 16 Jan[503]. In another passage, he notes that the last notice of her is dated 17 Nov 1099[504]. She was dead in 25 Jan 1100, the date of the charter under which "Adefonsus…Toletani imperii rex" donated the churches of "Sancti Facundi et Sancti Primitivi…cum sua villa…Villaverde", ceded by "comitis Monini Fernandis…in vita sua dederam uxori mee Berte regine", to Cluny, confirmed by "Raimundus totius Gallecie comes et gener regis, Urraca soror regis, Urraca regis filia et Raimundi comitis uxor, Enricus Portugalensis comes, uxor ipsius Tarasia filia regis…"[505]. The 13th century history of Sahagún monastery records that "la Reyna Doña Berta" died "apenas cumplidos seis años en el matrimonio" and was buried in the monastery[506]. Pérez´s history of Sahagún monastery, published in 1782, states that "Doña Berta…Reyna…está enterrada no lejos de Doña Constanza en la Capilla" of the monastery, but does not quote the inscription which confirms this statement[507].
     "[m fourthly ([Burgos] 1100 before 14 May) ISABEL [Elisabeth], daughter of --- (-before Mar 1106, bur Royal Pantheon of San Isidor de León). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Elizabeth" as the fourth of the "five legitimate wives" of King Alfonso, stating that she was the mother of "Sancha the wife of count Rodrigo and Elvira who married Duke Roger of Sicily"[508]. According to Reilly, her first documentary mention is dated 14 May 1100, but he does not cite the reference[509]. "Adefonsus…totius Hispanie imperator" donated property to the monastery of San Salvador de Oña with the consent of "uxoris mee Helisabeth regine" by charter dated 12 Dec 1075[510], although this date is clearly incorrect. "Aldefonsus rex Yspaniarum…cum…coniuge mee Helisabeth regine" donated property to the monastery of San Salvador de Oña by charter dated 1086[511], also clearly misdated. "Adefonsus Rex Imperator Ispanie et Regina Elisabeth" protected the grazing rights of Valladolid Santa María by charter dated 1100[512]. "Adefonsus totius Ispanie imperator" donated property to the monastery of San Salvador de Oña with the consent of "uxoris mee Helisabet regine" by charter dated 23 Mar 1103[513]. Her origin is not known. Reilly assumes a French origin, speculating that she belonged to a younger branch of the house of Burgundy, but quotes no documentary evidence for this or any other French origin[514]. It used to be widely accepted that she was the daughter of Louis VI King of France, based on a funerary inscription, but this is chronologically impossible. Her existence is questionable and it is possible that she was in fact the same person as Isabel née Zaïda, shown below as King Alfonso's fifth wife. The question of the separate existence of King Alfonso VI's fourth wife would be resolved if we knew there had been two different memorials to "Queen Elisabeth" in the Royal Pantheon, but it appears that a record of these memorials no longer exists. According to Reilly, she is last named in a charter dated 14 May 1107[515], but it is more likely that this document refers to Queen Isabel/Elisabeth née Zaïda (see below).]
     "m fifthly (Mar 1106) as her second husband, ZAÏDA, widow of ABU NASIR al Fatah al Ma'Mun Emir of Córdoba, daughter of --- (-13 Sep 1107, bur Royal Pantheon of San Isidor at León). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Zaida, the daughter of King Abenabeth of Seville, who was baptised…Elisabeth" as the second of two concubines of King Alfonso, and their son "Sancho who died at the battle of Ucles"[516]. The Chronicon de Cardeña records that King Alfonso married “Mora, que decien la Cayda, sobrina de Abenafanle” who was mother of his son Sancho[517]. Her first marriage is confirmed by the Bayan al Mugrib of Ibn Idari which names "le fils d´Alphonse, Sancho, qu´il avait eu de l´épouse d´Al Mamun ibn Abbad" when recording the battle of Uclés[518]. Salazar y Acha attempts to explain these three apparently contradictory sources by suggesting that Zaida could have been the daughter of "un hermano mayor…Ismail ibn Abbad" of Mohammed al-Mutamid, noting particularly the practice of endogamous marriages in the Muslim dynasties[519]. As noted above, Ismail is recorded as the brother of al-Mutatid and so would have been the paternal uncle of al-Mutamid. From a chronological point of view therefore Salazar y Acha´s suggestion appears untenible, although Zaida could have been another relative, maybe the daughter of an otherwise unrecorded brother of al-Mutamid. Alberto Montaner Frutos also discusses Zaïda, in particular relating to legends which have developed in connection with her history[520]. Reilly[521] dates the start of her relationship with King Alfonso to late 1091 or 1092, suggesting its diplomatic importance would have been greatest after the fall of Córdoba in Mar 1091 but before the fall of Badajoz in early 1094. This seems supported by the likelihood that their son Sancho was at least 15 years old when he was killed at the battle of Uclés in May 1108. Zaïda was christened ISABEL[522], date not known. Reilly cites a document of Galician origin dated 27 Mar 1106 which indicates that King Alfonso had married "Helisabet" shortly before[523]. Reilly[524] quotes a charter granted at Oviedo 19 Mar 1106 which lists members of the royal family, naming "Elisabeth" directly before "Sancho", which presumably refer to Zaïda and her son. "…Helisabet Regina, Reimundus comes, Urraca regis filia, Sancius filius regis…" subscribed the charter dated 14 May 1107 under which "Adefonsus…Toletani imperii rex…cum…uxore mea Helisabet regina" approved the mint of Santiago de Compostela[525]. Reilly assumes that the reference is to King Alfonso´s presumed fourth wife Isabel (Elizabeth)[526], but it appears more likely that the document refers to Zaïda. Reilly says that her sepulchral inscription (presumably now lost) reportedly stated that she had died in childbirth on 13 Sep, without giving the year, and in a later passage that the inscription stated that this was the "second ferial day", which he interprets as meaning a Monday or Thursday[527]. If the charters dated 1106 and 1107 correctly refer to Zaida, the year must have been 1107 assuming that King Alfonso married his sixth wife in 1108. Pérez´s history of Sahagún monastery, published in 1782, states that Queen Isabel was buried "en la Capilla mayor" of the monastery, but does not quote the inscription which confirms this statement[528].
     "m sixthly ([Apr] 1108) [as her first husband,] BEATRIX, daughter of --- (-after 1109). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Beatrice" as the fifth of the "five legitimate wives" of King Alfonso[529]. The De Rebus Hispaniæ of Rodericus Ximenes names "Beatrix ex partibus Gallicanis" as fifth wife of "rex Aldefonsus"[530]. According to the Chronicon Regum Legionensium, she "returned to her own country" after the king died[531]. No primary source has been identified which indicates her family origin. Orderic Vitalis refers to the second marriage of "Agnetem filiam Guillelmi Pictavorum ducis relictam Hildefonsi senioris Galiciae regis" with Hélie Comte du Maine[532]. As noted above, it appears unlikely that this passage could refer to King Alfonso´s first wife named Agnes, whose death before the king´s second marriage is indicated (although not conclusively) by primary sources. It is therefore possible that the entry relates to the king´s sixth wife, the name "Agnetem" being an error for "Beatricem". If this was correct, she would have been Beatrix, daughter of Guillaume VIII Duke of Aquitaine [Guillaume VI Comte de Poitou] & his third wife Hildegarde de Bourgogne [Capet], this parentage being the most probable from a chronological point of view if she was the daughter of one of the dukes of Aquitaine. In this case, she would have married secondly (after Jun 1109) as his second wife, Hélie Comte du Maine.
     "[533]Mistress (1): ([1080]) JIMENA Muñoz, daughter of [MUNIO Muñoz & his wife Velasquita ---] (-Espinareda del Bierzo 1128, after 25 May, maybe 23 Jul, bur San Andres de Espinareda). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Jimena Muñoz" as the first of two concubines of King Alfonso, and their daughters "Elvira the wife of count Raymond of Toulouse…and Teresa the wife of Count Henry"[534]. The Chronicon de Cardeña names “Ximena Nuñez” as mother of the king´s daughters “la Infant Doña Elvira è la Infant Doña Teresa”[535]. The precise parentage of Jimena Muñoz has been the subject of considerable debate over recent years. The common connection with Ulver, where she was recorded, appears conclusive in determining that she was closely related to Munio Muñoz who was also recorded in the same castle (see the document GALICIA NOBILITY). Her birth date, estimated from her having given birth to two children in the early 1080s, suggests that she was his daughter rather than his sister (assuming that Munio´s parents are correctly identified as Munio Rodríguez and Jimena Ordóñez). Kerrebrouck states that Jimena Múñoz was King Alfonso VI's second wife, married before the end of 1078 (marriage annulled), but this is chronologically difficult to maintain. King Alfonso's relationship with Jimena lasted long enough to produce two children. As noted above, the last documentary reference to Queen Inés was dated 22 May 1077 while King Alfonso's marriage to Queen Constance took place in late 1079. This leaves insufficient time for the king to have married and had two legitimate children by Jimena. The reference in Kerrebrouck to the annulment of King Alfonso's alleged marriage to Jimena is presumably based on Pope Gregory VII's letter of 27 Jun 1080 which, among other things, objected to King Alfonso's "marriage" on the grounds of consanguinity. The letter does not name the wife whose marriage was objected to, but Reilly appears correct in concluding that "it can be no other than Queen Constance herself", given the likely date of her marriage and the likely date of birth of her daughter Urraca[536]. Reilly suggests that King Alfonso VI's relationship with Jimena started in [1081/82][537]. "Monnio Moniz, uxor sua Velasquita, Xemena Moniz, Petro Velaz, Sol Sancxiz…" subscribed the charter dated 1 Oct 1085 under which "Gelvira Petriz…cum viro meo…Godino Citiz" donated property in Priaranza to the monastery of San Pedro de Montes[538]. The dating clause of a charter dated 7 Feb 1093, under which "Petro Quizaz" sold property in Salas de los Barrios to the monastery of San Pedro de Montes, names "Scemena Monniz in Ulver"[539]. "Garcia Monnuiz…cum uxor mea Fronille Annalaz cognomento Sol et Pelayo Monniuz et Auro Villito et Monniuz" donated property in Jagoaza to the monastery of San Pedro de Montes, and "Xemeno Monniuz" sold "mea porcione quam habui inter fratres meos" of the sam[e property, by charter dated 26 Sep [1095][540]. It is possible that "Xemeno Monniuz" in this document is an error for "Xemena Monniuz". However, the dating clause which names "Comes Froyla Didaz imperante in ipsa terra de Iorres" suggests that the property was in a different area from "Ulver" and therefore that the two families were unrelated.] The dating clause of a charter dated 17 Dec 1096, under which "Vellite Ferrudiz et uxor mea Falella" sold property in Salas de los Barrios to the monastery of San Pedro de Montes, names "…Xemena Munniz in Ulver"[541]. The dating clause of a charter dated 21 Mar 1097, under which "Maria" donated property in Rimor to the monastery of San Pedro de Montes, names "Donna Xemena Monniz imperante ipsa terra de Ulver"[542]. "Xemena Munniz" donated property in Salas de los Barrios to the monastery of San Pedro de Montes by charter dated 26 Apr 1101[543]. "Potestas in illa terra donna Xemena" and "Xemena Monnuz imperante terra de Ulver" is named in dating clauses of other charters which record donations to San Pedro de Montes, dated 1099, 29 Jun 1100, 26 Aug [1103], 19 Apr [1104], 19 Jan [1107][544]. The dating clause of charters dated between [1115] and 15 May 1118 name "Johanne Petriz potestate in Ulver", and from 6 Mar 1126 "Ramiro Froilaz"[545], suggesting that the Muñoz family moved from the castle in [1107/15]. "Ximena Munniz" donated property in "Trebalio et Turres" to "nepotis mei…Garcie Fernandiz" by charter dated 18 Apr 1127[546]. Jimena Muñoz donated property in "la villa de Torres, discurrente rivulo Orbico, territorio Astoricensis" to the Order of St John by charter dated 18 Sep 1127[547]. "Jimena Muñiz" donated property "en Villar de Salas en el Bierzo" to Astorga Cathedral by charter dated 25 May 1128[548]. Doña Jimena retired to the Benedictine convent of Esinareda del Bierzo. The necrology of León Cathedral records the death “X Kal Aug” of “Xemena Moniz”[549]. Sandoval records that "Ximena Nuñez" was buried in "San Andres de Espinareda"[550]. An inscription in the monastery of Espinareda records the death in 1128 of "Semena Alphonsi vidui regis amica", although Rodríguez González highlights the opinion that the monument is a later forgery[551]. Sandoval records that "Ximena Nuñez" was buried in "San Andres de Espinareda"[552]."

Alice Talbot, the third daughter of Richard, 4th Lord Talbot, and Ankaret, Lady Strange of Blakemere, is a key gateway for the Herefordshire gentry to a descent from Edward I. For the eleven families descended from her by 1500 listed below, she is the only link to such a descent for all but one.

She was born 1389/93, and was a younger sister of John Talbot, the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury. In 1412, her widowed mother arranged her marriage to Sir Thomas Barre, 'Junior', the son and heir of Sir Thomas Barre, 'Senior', of Rotherwas (in Dinedor) and Clehonger, Herefordshire, by his wife Elizabeth Croyser.

By Sir Thomas Barre, Alice had a son and three daughters, before her husband died, probably fighting in France, in the late summer or autumn of 1420. He predeceased his father, Sir Thomas Barre 'Senior', who died in December 1420.

Alice married secondly, Richard de la Mere, sheriff of Herefordshire 1422-3, whose parentage I've not been able to determine. He was not the Richard de la Mere, MP, whose bio is in Roskell's HOP. Instead, he was likely of the family of Sir Peter de la Mere, Speaker of the House of Commons under Richard II, as they were based in Herefordshire. By him she had another son and two more daughters (who apparently died unmarried), and died in 1436.

Issue of Alice Talbot and Sir Thomas Barre 'Junior':

1) Sir JOHN BARRE, born late 1412 (he was found to be age "9 and more" in the September 1421 Herefordshire IPM of his grandfather). He was knighted 1441/2, MP Herefordshire 1445-6, 1447, Gloucestershire 1450-1, Herefordshire 1459., sheriff of Herefordshire and the West Marches, 1454-5. He married 1st, Idoine, daughter and heiress of Sir John Hotoft (d. 1443), of Knebworth House, Hertfordshire, Treasurer of the Household of Henry VI. He married 2nd, Joan (d. 10 Aug. 1484), widow of Sir Robert Greyndore (d. 1443) of Clearwell Court, Gloucestershire, and daughter and heiress of Thomas Rugge, of Charlecombe, Somerset. He died 14 Jan. 1483, and was buried at All Saints' Church, Clehonger, where he had founded a chantry for his family in 1474. He had (by his first wife), one child and heiress:

1A) ISABEL BARRE, COUNTESS OF DEVON. She married 1st, after 1450, Sir Humphrey Stafford (1439-17 Aug. 1469), of Hook, co. Dorset, cr. Baron Stafford of Southwick 1464, Earl of Devon 1469, by whom she had no surviving issue. She married 2nd, about 1472, Sir Thomas Bourchier (d. 26 Oct. 1491), younger son of Henry, Earl of Essex, and died 1 March 1489. Her remains were removed to her husband Bourchier's tomb in Ware, Hertfordshire, after his death. By Bourchier, she had had issue:

1A1) ISABEL BOURCHIER, born 24 April 1474; died young before her mother.

1A2) JOAN BOURCHIER, born 18 March 1475; died in infancy.

2) ELIZABETH BARRE, eldest daughter, born about 1414. She was married to Edmund Cornewall, knight, eldest son and heir of Richard Cornewall (d. January 1443), esquire, 'baron' of Burford, Salop, by his wife Alice Merbury (d. 1417). From HOP: "The Cornewalls of Burford were the younger branch of an ancient family which traced its descent from an illegitimate son of Richard, Earl of Cornwall, brother of Henry III. It was possibly their sense of this distinguished ancestry which caused them to style themselves Barons of Burford, although none of their line had ever been summoned to Parliament. They owned extensive property in Devon, Herefordshire, Shropshire and the midlands." Edmund, who was born about 1382, died before his father in Cologne in 1435, and was buried in St. Mary church, Burford. Over thirty years younger than her husband, Elizabeth had only one son and one daughter before his death. She died in 1468. Issue:

2A) THOMAS CORNEWALL, esquire, of Burford, born 1430/5, became the heir of his grandfather, who arranged his marriage to Elizabeth (d. 1489), daughter of Sir Rowland Lenthall (d. Nov. 1450), by his second wife Lucy Grey. Revenue from the Cornewalls' Stapleton Castle in Herefordshire, was part of the marriage settlement, and after the 1443 death of Richard Cornewall, Lenthall claimed he'd been defrauded. Thomas Cornewall came of age in the 1450s and was a firm Lancastrian. He was attainted in 1461 in Edward IV's first Parliament, and all of his properties forfeited. He died shortly after 1472, when his son and heir successfully petitioned the crown to be restored to the family lands after his father's death. I haven't yet found a full list of the children of Thomas Cornewall and Elizabeth Lenthall, but they had
at least one son:

2A1) Sir EDMUND CORNEWALL, of Burford, born 1455/9 (said to be age 30 and more in Oct. 1489), who had all the family lands restored shortly after 1472/3. He married Margaret (d. 1498), daughter and coheiress of Thomas Horde of Bridgnorth, Shropshire, MP. In October 1489, he was found to be a coheir to Isabel Barre, countess of Devon, but died shortly afterwards, on 8 Dec. 1489. From Sir Edmund descends the vast Cornewall family of Burford.

2B) ELEANOR CORNEWALL, born 1430/5, married 1st, Sir Hugh Mortimer, of Kyre Wyard and Martley, Worcestershire, and Tedstone Wafer, Herefordshire, heir of the Tedstone Wafer Mortimers. He was killed at Wakefield in December 1460, and was buried in the Church of St. Peter, Martley. By him she had a son and a daughter. She married 2nd, Sir Richard Croft (d. 29 July 1509), of Croft Castle, Herefordshire, sheriff of Herefordshire 1471-72, 1477, 1486, MP Herefordshire 1477, and had three more sons and five more daughters. The Crofts had occupied Croft Castle since before the Conquest. Eleanor was the governess of Edward IV's sons at Ludlow Castle. She died 23 Dec. 1519, at an advanced age, and was buried with her second husband in the chapel of Croft Castle (tomb now in St. Michael church, Croft). Issue:

2B1) Sir JOHN MORTIMER, of Kyre Wyard, etc., born 1450/5, sheriff of Herefordshire 1477-8, 1481-2, steward of Abberley, Worcestershire during Warwick's minority 15 Aug. 1480, Squire of the Body 1481-5, knighted 1485, Knight of the Body 1485-1504, sheriff of Worcestershire 1485-6, banneret at Stoke 16 June 1487, sheriff of Herefordshire 1493-4, 1501-2, MP Worcestershire 1495. He married, after 1485, Margaret Nevill (c.1466-31 Jan. 1528), third daughter and co-heiress of John Nevill, Marquess of Montagu (d. 1471) by his wife Isabel Ingaldesthorpe. They had no issue, and Margaret went on to marry Charles Brandon, have it annulled the same year (1507), and then marry in 1522, one Robert Downes, in addition to having had an illegitimate daughter. Sir John Mortimer died without issue in October 1504 (writ of d.c.e. 1 Nov. 1504).

2B2) ELIZABETH MORTIMER, LADY DE LA WARR, born 1455/60, married about 1480, Sir Thomas West, 8th Lord De La Warr (c.1457- 11 Oct. 1525), and died 29 June 1502, having had issue at least one son and four daughters.

2B3) Sir EDWARD CROFT, of Croft Castle, born about 1465, sheriff of Herefordshire 1505, married Joyce Scull, said to be daughter of Sir Walter Scull, of Holt Castle, Worcestershire (d. about 1472; buried at Holt Castle church), by his first wife Margaret Beauchamp of Holt (d. 1456; buried at Holt Castle church), but this seems unlikely due to chronology, and she was probably his daughter by his second wife Frances Mulle (d. 1483). Sir Edward died 23 March 1541, having had four sons and seven daughters, and was ancestor of the Crofts of Croft Castle, descendants of whom still occupy the castle today.

2B4) JOHN CROFT, of Holt, Worcestershire, born 1465/70, married Elizabeth Seymour, daughter of John Seymour of Wolf Hall, Wiltshire (d. 1491), by his wife Elizabeth Darrell, and was ancestor of the Crofts of Holt.

2B5) ROBERT CROFT, of Kyre Wyard, Worcestershire, married and had a sole daughter and heiress.

2B6) ANN CROFT, married Sir Thomas Blount (1455- 4 June 1524), of Kinlet, Shropshire, and died 27 Sep. 1549, having had at least five sons and six daughters.

2B7) ELIZABETH CROFT, married John Whittingham, of Pauntley, Gloucestershire.

2B8) JOYCE CROFT, married Thomas Mill, of Avenbury, Herefordshire.

2B9) JANE CROFT, married Sir Edward Darrell (1465/6- 9 Mar. 1530), of Littlecote, Witshire, and died by 1492, having had issue, two sons and two daughters.

2B10) SYBIL CROFT, married Sir George Herbert (c.1463/5- died after 1504), of St Julians, Monmouthshire, third son of William Herbert, Earl of Pembroke. He was knighted in 1487 at the battle of Stoke. Dame Sybil had two sons and one daughter.

3) JOAN BARRE, born 1415/20, married Sir Kynard de la Bere (d. by 1465), of Kinnersley Castle, Herefordshire, escheator of Herefordshire and the West Marches 1438-9, son and heir of Sir Richard de la Bere, of Kinnersley, MP Herefordshire, by his first wife Sybil Chabbonare. Kynard and Joan were granted the manor of "Dorsington" (Dorston in Herefordshire?), by Richard, duke of York. She died before 1474, having had one son and three daughters. Her husband predeceased her. Issue:

3A) Sir RICHARD DELABERE, of Kinnersley, born about 1448, knighted 17 Jan. 1478, sheriff of Herefordshire 1478-9, 1482-3, 1492-3, 1510-11, MP Herefordshire 1495, adhered to Buckingham in his 1483 rebellion, and pardoned by Richard III 5 Nov. 1484; made banneret at Stoke 1487, found co-heir to Isabel Barre, countess of Devon, in September 1489. He married 1st, Anne Audley, daughter of John, Lord Audley, by his second wife Eleanor Holland, and had one son and four daughters. He married 2ndly, Elizabeth (married 2ndly, Thomas Baskerville, esquire), daughter of William Mores, Sergeant to the Hall of Henry VII, and had a further ten sons and six daughters. Sir Richard died 15 July 1514, and was buried in Hereford Cathedral. By his second wife he was ancestor of the Delaberes of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. By his first wife, he had one surviving son and daughter:

3A1) THOMAS DELABERE, of Kinnersley, etc., died without issue 1518/19.

3A2) ANNE DELABERE, married John Pye (1444-1550; buried St Davids church, Much Dewchurch), of Mynd Park, Much Dewchurch, Herefordshire. They had many children.

3B) ANNE DELABERE

3C) ELIZABETH DELABERE

3D) JANE DELABERE, all alive and unmarried in 1465/70, when they sued their brother Richard for their marriage portions.

4) ANKARET BARRE, born 1415/20, married John Hanmer, esquire, and died after 1474, leaving a son and heir, William Hanmer, who was found to be a co-heir to Isabel Barre, countess of Devon, in September 1489. I'm in the process of researching the Hanmers.

     DEATH     1119 (aged 55–56), Bretagne, France
     Alan IV Fergant "Alan the Strong", Duke of Brittany, Count of Nantes and Rennes, from the Cornwall dynasty.
     Son of Hoel de Cornuaille V, Count of Kernev and Duke of Brittany and Hawise de Bretagne, Duchess of Brittany. Grandson of Alain Cagniart Count de Cornuaille and Judith de Nantes, Alan III Duke of Brittany m Bertha of Chartres.
     Alan married Constance, the favorite daughter of William the Conqueror in 1087, but they had no children by the time she died in 1090, supposedly poisoned.
     Secondly, Alan married Ermengarde of Anjou, the only daughter of Count Fulk IV of Anjou and Hildegarde of Beaugency and previous wife of William of Aquitaine. They married in 1093 and had three children:
* Geoffrey, died young
* Conan, Duke of Brittany
* Hawise, wife of Count Baldwin VII of Flanders (some sources say Geoffrey de Porhoet Vicomte de Porhoet)

     Alan was born into the war between William the Conqueror and his mother's brother, Conan II. To soothe the path for his invasion of England, William I married his favorite but unpopular in France (due to her "severe attitude" yet beloved by the Britons) daughter Constance to the Alan in 1087. William of Malmesbury believed Alan VI had Constance poisoned but nothing could be proven.
     In 1092 Alan donated property to the abbey of Redon, and married Ermengarde of Anjou the following year as a political alliance with Fulk IV of Anjou. In 1098 Alan left on the First Crusade leaving Ermengarde as his regent, and returned in 1101.
     Alan IV abdicated in 1112, and he and Ermengarde were separated as a result. Alan retired to the monastery of Redon, where he died in 1119.

     "Alan IV (born circa 1063; died 13 October 1119) was Duke of Brittany from 1084 until his abdication in 1112. He was also Count of Nantes (from c. 1103) and Count of Rennes. His parents were Duchess Hawise and Duke Hoel II.[1] He is also known as Alan Fergant. Through his father, he was of the Breton House of Cornouaille dynasty (Breton: Kerne dynasty). He was the last Breton-speaking Duke of Brittany.[2]
Norman Conflict
     "A traditional rivalry between Brittany and Normandy continued at the close of the 11th century. The Breton-Norman war of 1064–1065 was the result of William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy (later to become known as William the Conqueror) support of rebels in Brittany against Alan's maternal uncle, Conan II.
     "Conan II died in late 1066 during a campaign in Anjou, and was succeeded by Alan's parents, Conan's sister Hawise and her husband Hoel II. Hoel ruled as regent from Hawise's death in 1072 until Alan reached his majority in 1084. at an unknown age
     "To prevent further hostilities during his invasion of England, William I married his daughter Constance to the new duke Alan in 1087.[4] The marriage ceremonies may have taken place in Bayeux in Normandy. William of Malmesbury wrote that Constance was unpopular at the Breton court because of her "severe and conservative" manner. However, Orderic Vitalis wrote that as duchess Constance did all she could to further the welfare of the Bretons, who grieved deeply at her death in 1090.
     "In 1092 Alan IV donated property to the abbey of Redon by charter, and by 1093 married Ermengarde of Anjou, as a political alliance with Fulk IV of Anjou to counter Anglo-Norman influence.
     "Duke Alan IV's cousin Geoffrey I Boterel (eldest brother of Alan Rufus) died on 24 August 1093 in battle at Dol while in rebellion against the Duke.
     "Between 1101 and 1104, Alan's younger brother, Count Matthew II of Nantes, died without issue and his county passed to Alan.
     "Alan IV abdicated as duke in 1112. The former duke retired to the monastery of Redon, where he died in 1119.
Crusader
     "In 1098 Alan went on the First Crusade,[5] as part of the army of Robert Curthose, leaving Ermengarde as his regent, and returned in 1101.
Family
     "Alan IV married Constance in 1087. Constance died in 1090. William of Malmesbury alleges that her husband, Alan, had their servants poison her.[6] They had no children.
     "Alan's second marriage was to Ermengarde of Anjou in 1093.[4] With Ermengarde he had three children:
** Geoffrey - died young;
** Conan - his successor as Duke of Brittany[4]
** Hawise - she married Count Baldwin VII of Flanders, also known as Hawise Fergant. They divorced and had no issue.

     "Alan and Ermengarde were separated upon his abdication as duke in 1112.
     "He had two illegitimate sons, Brian Fitzcount[7] and Guihomar.
Succession
     "Alan IV died in 1119 at the monastery of Redon, where he had retired after his abdication in 1112, and separation from his wife Ermengarde. His only surviving son, Conan III succeeded him.
Notes
a. Following medieval examples given in Bailey et al., Alan may have been twenty-one years of age at that time.[3]

; Per Genealogics:
     "Alain was born at the castle of Châteaulin in Finistère about 1066, the son of Hoël V, comte de Cornouaille, Leon et Nantes, and Havise, heiress of Brittany. He became duke of Brittany on the death of his father on 13 April 1084.
     "Alain is known as the last duke of Brittany to have spoken Breton. He had to restore his ducal authority in the county of Rennes against Geoffroy Grenonat, half-brother of his grandfather Conon II, whom Geoffroy had succeeded as count for life to the detriment of Alain's mother Havise, the legitimate heir. In 1084 Alain captured Rennes at the head of his army and exiled Grenonat to Quimper, the capital of Cornouaille in Brittany, where he died the same year, making it possible for Alain to resume the title of Comte de Rennes. In the same year he named his faithful brother Mathias to rule the county of Nantes, but he resumed the title with the death of Mathias in 1103.
     "In 1086 Alain married Constance of Normandy, daughter of William the Conqueror, but she died of poisoning in 1090 without progeny. In 1093 he married Ermengarde d'Anjou, daughter of Foulques IV 'Rechin', comte d'Anjou and his first wife Hildegarde de Beaugency. Theirs was initially a stormy relationship; she tried to leave him to enter the convent of Fontevrault, asking that the marriage be annulled. The bishops refused, sending her back to her husband and exhorting her to be obedient and accept her place as a wife and mother. They must have reached an understanding as she bore three children, of whom Conon would have progeny.
     "Alain preferred to stay in the Breton-speaking part of his duchy, living in his castles of Auray and Carnoët not far from the Crusader abbey of Quimperlé governed by his uncle Binidic (Benoit). The peace prevailing in the duchy made it possible for Alain to answer the call of Pope Urban II and in the summer of 1096 he joined the First Crusade in the company of other Breton lords. He was absent from Brittany for five years, leaving the duchy under the firm control of the difficult but very capable Ermengarde. On his return from the Crusade Alain interested himself increasingly in religious matters, and supported the reform of the clergy by Marbode, bishop of Rennes. His evolution towards the spiritual did not prevent him from taking the side of Henry I of England in his conflict with his brother Robert Curthose, duke of Normandy, and Alain took part in the Battle of Tinchebray in 1106 in which Curthose was defeated and captured. He became a vassal of Henry I, and married his son Conon III to Matilda, Henry's natural daughter.
     "Due to illness, Alain abdicated in 1112 in favour of Conon and retired to the abbey of Saint-Sauveur at Redon. He died at the abbey on 13 October 1119, and is buried there."5

     "ALAIN de Cornouaïlle, son of HOËL Comte de Cornouaïlle & his wife Havise de Bretagne (-13 Oct 1119). The Chronicon Briocensi names "Alanum, Mathiam et Benedictum" as the three children of "Hoellus…ex Hadevisa uxore sua"[185]. The Flandria Generosa names "comes Alanus" son of "Havisis Namnetensis comitissa", when outlining the basis for the consanguinity between his daughter Havise and her husband Baudouin VII Count of Flanders which constituted grounds for the couple's separation[186]. "Constancius" donated property to the abbey of Redon with the consent of "Jedear uxore mea" and affirmed by "Hoel comes et Haduis comitissa, Alanus et Mathias et Eudo filii eorum" by charter dated before 1072[187]. "Berta comitissa Alani Redonensis ducis uxor" donated property to Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé, for the souls of "filie nostre Hadeuis comitisse Hoelis ducis Britannie conjugis et…filiorum suorum, meorum…nepotum Alani et Mathie", by charter dated 1075, signed by "Alanus nothus filius Conani comitis, Vitalis et Gualterius Carnotenses, familiares comitisse Haduis neptis mee…"[188]. He succeeded in 1084 as ALAIN IV "Fergant" Duke of Brittany. "Alanus comes filius Hoeli comitis" confirmed the rights of the abbey of Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé by charter dated 1084[189]. "Alano qui et Fergant, Hoeli filio, totius Britannie consule" donated property to the abbey of Redon by charter dated 1092[190]. He accompanied Robert III Duke of Normandy on the First Crusade[191]. Albert of Aix names "…domnus Alens cognomine Fercans, Conans quoque, ambo principes Brittanorum…" among those who took part in the siege of Nikaia, dated to mid-1097 from the context[192]. He abdicated in [1114/16] in favour of his son, becoming a monk at the abbey of Redon: the Annals of St Salvator Redon record that "Alanus Fergent, ex Britonum duce rotonensis monachus, anno 1119 fato functus" was buried at the abbey of Redon[193]. The Chronicon Britannico Alter records the death in 1119 of "Alanus Fergent pater Conani"[194]. The Chronicon Kemperlegiensis records the death "III Id Oct" in 1119 of "Alanus Fergant junior filius Hoëlis Comitis"[195].

Guillaume of Jumièges names Constance as second daughter, naming her husband "Alanno Fergant comiti minoris Britanniæ filio...Hoelli" and specifying that she died childless[196]. Orderic Vitalis records that King William I arranged the marriage of "Constantiam filiam suam" and “Alanno Ferganno” at Caen (presumably indicating the finalisation of the marriage contract) and in a later passage that the couple were married at Bayeux[197]. Three different Breton sources record her marriage in different years. The Chronicon Ruyensis Cœnobii records the marriage in 1086 of "Alanus" and "Constantiam filiam Regis Anglorum Guillelmi"[198]. The Chronicon Kemperlegiensis records the marriage in 1087 of "Alanus Hoëli Consulis filius" and "Constantiam Guillelmi Regis Anglorum filiam"[199]. The Chronicon Britannico Alter records the marriage in 1088 of "Alanus" and "Constantiam filam Regis Guillelmi Anglorum"[200]. Orderic "Alanus dux Britannorum et Constantia uxor eius" donated property to the priory of Livré by charter dated 31 Jul 1089[201]. According to William of Malmesbury, "she excited the inhabitants [of Brittany] by the severity of her justice to administer a poisonous potion to her"[202]. Orderic Vitalis, on the other hand, says that she "did everything in her power to further the welfare of her subjects" and "was deeply grieved when she died"[203]. The Chronicon Britannico Alter records the death in 1090 of "Constantia Alani coniux…sine liberis"[204]. The Chronicon Universum in the cartulary of Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé records the death in 1090 of "Constantia comitissa filia regis Anglorum"[205].

The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the daughter of "Fulco" as "comitissam Redonensem" but does not name her[206]. "Fulco Andegavensis comes" donated property to Angers with the consent of "filiis meis Gaufrido et Fulconello et filia mea Ermengarde" by charter dated 23 Jun 1096[207]. William of Tyre names her "Hermingerda", gives her father's name implying that she was born from his fifth marriage, and names her first husband "Pictaviensium comitis Willelmi", records her divorce and names her second husband "comes Brittaniæ"[208]. Orderic Vitalis records that "Fergannus comes" married “filiam comitis Andegavorum” after the death of his first wife[209]. The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records that "comitissa Brittaniæ" was the daughter of Foulques and his first wife "filiam Lancelini de Baugenciaco", adding that she became a nun at "Jerusalem in ecclesia Sanctæ Annæ" after her husband died[210]. The Chronicon Briocensi records the marriage of "Alanus filius primogenitus [Hoelli]" and "Ermengardem filiam Comitis Andegavensis"[211]. "Fulco Andecavorum comes nepos Goffridi Martelli…consulis" donated property to Angers with the consent of "Ermenjarde filia sua comitissa Brittaniæ" by charter dated 12 Apr 1109[212]. "Conanus…Britaniaæ dux cum sorore mea Hidevis et matre mea Ermeniart" donated property to the abbey of Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé by charter dated 1118, which names "pater meus Alanus et avus Hoel et attavus Alanus"[213]. The necrology of Angers Cathedral records the death "Kal Jun" of "Ermengardis comitissa Britanniæ mater Conan ducis et soror Fulconis regis Hierosolymitani"[214]. The Annals of St Salvator Redon record that "Ermengardeque Alani conjugem, vere piam ac religiosam" was buried at the abbey of Redon[215].

     Constance was one the younger daughters of William and Conqueror and his wife, Matilda of Flanders. She held the title of Princess of England by birth and Duchess of Brittany through her marriage.
     She married Alain IV de Fergent of Bretagne, Duke of Brittany, in 1086 in Caen, but died in 1090, possibly poisoned by her servants at Bretagne. She was the favorite of her mother and considered to be the most accomplished and gifted of her siblings.
     She was buried at the Church of St Melans, Rhedon, Bretagne, France. Her tomb was opened in 1672, where fragments of her woolen wrapping and a leaden cross engraved with her epitaph, the name of her father and husband, and the date of her death could still be read.

     "ALAIN de Cornouaïlle, son of HOËL Comte de Cornouaïlle & his wife Havise de Bretagne (-13 Oct 1119). The Chronicon Briocensi names "Alanum, Mathiam et Benedictum" as the three children of "Hoellus…ex Hadevisa uxore sua"[185]. The Flandria Generosa names "comes Alanus" son of "Havisis Namnetensis comitissa", when outlining the basis for the consanguinity between his daughter Havise and her husband Baudouin VII Count of Flanders which constituted grounds for the couple's separation[186]. "Constancius" donated property to the abbey of Redon with the consent of "Jedear uxore mea" and affirmed by "Hoel comes et Haduis comitissa, Alanus et Mathias et Eudo filii eorum" by charter dated before 1072[187]. "Berta comitissa Alani Redonensis ducis uxor" donated property to Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé, for the souls of "filie nostre Hadeuis comitisse Hoelis ducis Britannie conjugis et…filiorum suorum, meorum…nepotum Alani et Mathie", by charter dated 1075, signed by "Alanus nothus filius Conani comitis, Vitalis et Gualterius Carnotenses, familiares comitisse Haduis neptis mee…"[188]. He succeeded in 1084 as ALAIN IV "Fergant" Duke of Brittany. "Alanus comes filius Hoeli comitis" confirmed the rights of the abbey of Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé by charter dated 1084[189]. "Alano qui et Fergant, Hoeli filio, totius Britannie consule" donated property to the abbey of Redon by charter dated 1092[190]. He accompanied Robert III Duke of Normandy on the First Crusade[191]. Albert of Aix names "…domnus Alens cognomine Fercans, Conans quoque, ambo principes Brittanorum…" among those who took part in the siege of Nikaia, dated to mid-1097 from the context[192]. He abdicated in [1114/16] in favour of his son, becoming a monk at the abbey of Redon: the Annals of St Salvator Redon record that "Alanus Fergent, ex Britonum duce rotonensis monachus, anno 1119 fato functus" was buried at the abbey of Redon[193]. The Chronicon Britannico Alter records the death in 1119 of "Alanus Fergent pater Conani"[194]. The Chronicon Kemperlegiensis records the death "III Id Oct" in 1119 of "Alanus Fergant junior filius Hoëlis Comitis"[195].

Guillaume of Jumièges names Constance as second daughter, naming her husband "Alanno Fergant comiti minoris Britanniæ filio...Hoelli" and specifying that she died childless[196]. Orderic Vitalis records that King William I arranged the marriage of "Constantiam filiam suam" and “Alanno Ferganno” at Caen (presumably indicating the finalisation of the marriage contract) and in a later passage that the couple were married at Bayeux[197]. Three different Breton sources record her marriage in different years. The Chronicon Ruyensis Cœnobii records the marriage in 1086 of "Alanus" and "Constantiam filiam Regis Anglorum Guillelmi"[198]. The Chronicon Kemperlegiensis records the marriage in 1087 of "Alanus Hoëli Consulis filius" and "Constantiam Guillelmi Regis Anglorum filiam"[199]. The Chronicon Britannico Alter records the marriage in 1088 of "Alanus" and "Constantiam filam Regis Guillelmi Anglorum"[200]. Orderic "Alanus dux Britannorum et Constantia uxor eius" donated property to the priory of Livré by charter dated 31 Jul 1089[201]. According to William of Malmesbury, "she excited the inhabitants [of Brittany] by the severity of her justice to administer a poisonous potion to her"[202]. Orderic Vitalis, on the other hand, says that she "did everything in her power to further the welfare of her subjects" and "was deeply grieved when she died"[203]. The Chronicon Britannico Alter records the death in 1090 of "Constantia Alani coniux…sine liberis"[204]. The Chronicon Universum in the cartulary of Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé records the death in 1090 of "Constantia comitissa filia regis Anglorum"[205].

The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the daughter of "Fulco" as "comitissam Redonensem" but does not name her[206]. "Fulco Andegavensis comes" donated property to Angers with the consent of "filiis meis Gaufrido et Fulconello et filia mea Ermengarde" by charter dated 23 Jun 1096[207]. William of Tyre names her "Hermingerda", gives her father's name implying that she was born from his fifth marriage, and names her first husband "Pictaviensium comitis Willelmi", records her divorce and names her second husband "comes Brittaniæ"[208]. Orderic Vitalis records that "Fergannus comes" married “filiam comitis Andegavorum” after the death of his first wife[209]. The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records that "comitissa Brittaniæ" was the daughter of Foulques and his first wife "filiam Lancelini de Baugenciaco", adding that she became a nun at "Jerusalem in ecclesia Sanctæ Annæ" after her husband died[210]. The Chronicon Briocensi records the marriage of "Alanus filius primogenitus [Hoelli]" and "Ermengardem filiam Comitis Andegavensis"[211]. "Fulco Andecavorum comes nepos Goffridi Martelli…consulis" donated property to Angers with the consent of "Ermenjarde filia sua comitissa Brittaniæ" by charter dated 12 Apr 1109[212]. "Conanus…Britaniaæ dux cum sorore mea Hidevis et matre mea Ermeniart" donated property to the abbey of Sainte-Croix de Quimperlé by charter dated 1118, which names "pater meus Alanus et avus Hoel et attavus Alanus"[213]. The necrology of Angers Cathedral records the death "Kal Jun" of "Ermengardis comitissa Britanniæ mater Conan ducis et soror Fulconis regis Hierosolymitani"[214]. The Annals of St Salvator Redon record that "Ermengardeque Alani conjugem, vere piam ac religiosam" was buried at the abbey of Redon[215].

     "Constance of Normandy (between 1057 and 1061 – 13 August 1090) was a member of the House of Normandy who was, by marriage, Duchess of Brittany.
     "Constance was one of the nine children of William the Conqueror and Matilda of Flanders.[1] She was born in Normandy, where her father was duke. William of Jumièges, the monk who chronicled the 1066 Norman conquest of England, names Constance second among the daughters of King William and Queen Matilda. No source indicates the order of birth of the couple's daughters, however.[2]
     "In 1086, Constance's father invaded the Duchy of Brittany. Its duke, Alan Fergant, was forced into submission, and a marriage was arranged between him and Constance, who was already nearly 30. Like her mother, Constance was an able administrator. William of Malmesbury, an early 12th century historian, wrote that her "severe and conservative manner" made Constance an unpopular duchess. According to his contemporary, Orderic Vitalis, however, Constance was caring, considerate, and well-liked by her subjects. William of Malmesbury alleges that her husband had their servants poison her. She died on 13 August 1090.[3]

     ; Per Med Lands:
     "GUILLAUME de Blois, son of ETIENNE II Comte de Blois & his wife Adela de Normandie ([1090/93]-[1150]). Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” and his wife had “filios quatuor: Guillelmum et Tedbaldum, Stephanumque et Henricum”, adding that Guillaume was “gener Geronis de Solleio et hæres” and “vir bonus...et pacificus, et sobole pollens atque facultatibus” (“a good and peaceful man, powerful through his descendants and his wealth”)[765]. Orderic also provides some indication of his birth year when he records[766] that his mother Ctss Adela provided troops to Louis VI King of France at the time of the siege of Montmorency in [1108] "because Count Stephen her husband had gone on crusade and her eldest sons, William and Theobald, who were not yet of age, were unable to command troops of knights". The description is confused because Count Etienne had died several years earlier, but it nevertheless provides some indication of the comparative youth of the brothers Guillaume and Thibaut at the time. "Henricus comes cognomina Stephanus necnon et Adela uxor eius cum filiis nostris" granted immunities to Chartres Notre-Dame by charter dated [Oct 1100/1101], signed by "Stephani comitis, Adele comitisse, Guillelmi, Stephani, Odonis, Teobaldi"[767]. Comte de Chartres. Seigneur de Sully, by right of his wife. He was disinherited, retaining only Sully. According to Weir, Guillaume is described in the chronicles as an idiot but she does not cite the primary source[768]. The comment may based on a letter of Ivo Bishop of Chartres which records that, during a dispute (dated by Chibnall to [1103][769]) with the chapter of Chartres that was awaiting arbitration, he forced the burgesses of Chartres to form a confederation and take a solemn oath to kill the bishop[770]. Chibnall, in order to reconcile this incident with the description of Guillaume by Orderic Vitalis ("good and peaceful man", quoted above), speculates that he was of retarded mental development and, although irresponsible, violent only in words[771].
     "m AGNES de Sully, daughter of GILLES [I] de Sully & his wife Edelburge de Bourges . Her parentage and marriage are indicated by Orderic Vitalis who records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes...[filius] Guillemum” was “gener Geronis de Solleio et hæres”[772]. "Post mortem Gilonis de Soiliaco, comes Stephanus Tebbaldi filius" confirmed the rights of Saint-Florent over the monastery of Saint-Gondon sur Loire by charter dated [1098/1101] which names "Willelmus filius comitis Stephani et Agnes filia Gilonis"[773]."

; Per Wikipédia (Fr.):
     "Guillaume de Blois, ou Guillaume Ier de Sully, dit également Guillaume le simple, (né vers 1080/1090, † vers 1150) est seigneur de Sully. Il est le fils aîné, mais déshérité, d'Étienne II de Blois, comte de Blois, Châteaudun, Chartres et Meaux, et d'Adèle d'Angleterre, fille de Guillaume le Conquérant, duc de Normandie et roi d'Angleterre, et de Mathilde de Flandre1.
Biographie
     "Son père Étienne II de Blois décède lors de la Bataille de Ramla en 1102, mais il est déshérité par sa mère Adèle d'Angleterre à cause de problèmes mentaux au profit de son frère puîné Thibaut IV de Blois, et ne possède que Sully par son mariage, et devient la souche des seigneurs de Sully, branche aînée et spoliée de la maison de Blois-Champagne.
     "En 1135, à la mort du roi d'Angleterre Henri Ier Beauclerc, Guillaume était l'héritier légitime de la lignée de Guillaume le Conquérant. Il aurait ainsi été le principal rival de la fille d'Henri, Mathilde, pour hériter du trône après la mort d'Henri. Cependant, il n'a pas été considéré comme un candidat à la couronne anglaise et plusieurs historiens ont estimé qu'il avait été passé à cause d'une déficience mentale, d'où son sobriquet de Guillaume le Simple. Ce sera finalement son frère cadet, Étienne, qui montera sur le trône d'Angleterre.
     "Les témoignages concernant son état mental divergent. Il était très probablement bègue. La chronique de Tours dit qu'il était très-sot, Albéric dit qu'il était sans aucune valeur et Guillaume de Neubrige affirme qu'il était trop faible d'esprit et indigne du sang dont il était issu2.
     "Une lettre de 1103 d'Yves de Chartres, évêque de Chartres, indique que lors d'une dispute avec le chapitre de Chartres à propos d'un arbitrage, Guillaume aurait forcé les bourgeois de la ville à former une confédération et à prêter serment solennel de tuer l'évêque. Mais certains chroniqueurs ont spéculé qu'il était seulement mentalement retardé et, bien qu'irresponsable, violent seulement avec les mots. Orderic Vitalis, quant à lui le décrit comme un homme bon et paisible1.
     "Malgré son handicap, il se marie vers 1105 avec Agnès de Sully, qui était au service de sa mère et qui lui apporte la seigneurie de Sully dont il prendra le nom, et avec qui il a plusieurs enfants. Orderic Vitalis, son contemporain, dira de lui qu'il vécut de longues années, avait beaucoup d'enfants, et qu'il ne manquait pas d'argent2.
Mariage et enfants
     "Vers 1105, il épouse Agnès de Sully, fille de Gilles II, seigneur de Sully, et de Edelburge de Bourges (fille de Geoffroi IV, vicomte de Bourges), dont il a cinq enfants connus1 :
     ** Eudes (ou Archambaud) de Sully († après 1162), qui succède à son père.
** Raoul de Sully († 21 septembre 1176, inhumé à Notre Dame de La Charité-sur-Loire), abbé de Cluny.
** Henri de Sully († 10 janvier 1187), abbé de Fécamp.
** Marguerite de Sully († 14 décembre 1145), qui épouse Henri Ier, comte d'Eu, dont elle a trois enfants (Jean, qui succède à son père, Etienne et Mathilde).
** Elisabeth de Sully († en juillet 1128), abbesse de la Trinité de Caen.

; Per Wikipedia:
     "William the Simple (c.?1085 – c. 1150) was Count of Blois and Count of Chartres from 1102 to 1107, and jure uxoris Count of Sully. William was the eldest son of Stephen-Henry, Count of Blois and Adela of Normandy,[1] daughter of William the Conqueror. He was the older brother of Theobald II, Count of Champagne, King Stephen of England and Henry, Bishop of Winchester.
     "In the absence of male issue to Henry I, William was the eldest legitimate grandson of William the Conqueror. He would thus have been the principal rival to Henry's daughter Matilda to inherit the throne after Henry's death. However, he was not considered as a candidate for the English crown. Several historians have taken the view that he was passed over because of mental deficiency; hence his soubriquet "William the Simple". Though widely argued, this has never been clearly substantiated.
     "William was at first groomed to inherit the comital thrones of Blois and Chartres, and was designated count shortly before his father's departure on his second crusade in 1102.[2] However he was soon removed from wide-ranging comital duties by his mother, because of his erratic behaviour. He once assaulted and threatened to kill the Bishop of Chartres over a jurisdictional dispute. So, when her second son Theobald came of age, around 1107, Adela elevated him to the position of count of Blois-Chartres,[3] and forced William to retire to his wife's lands in Sully.
Family and Children
     "In 1104, William married Agnes of Sully, the heiress to the lordship of Sully-sur-Loire,[4] a woman attached to the court of William's mother. Their children included:
1. Raoul de Blois de Sully, Abbé de Cluny (Abbaye) 1102-1176
2. Margaret (c. 1105–1145). She married Henry, Count of Eu, Lord of Hastings, about 1122[5]
1. John, Count of Eu and Lord of Hastings (1130-26 June 1170), married Alice d’Aubigny (Calvados), Lady of Smergate, had issue.
2. Béatrice d’Eu
3. Mahaut d'Eu
4. Etienne d'Eu

; Per Med Lands:
     "HENRI de Blois (Winchester [1098/99]-Winchester 1 Jul 1171, bur Winchester Cathedral[228]). Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” and his wife had “filios quatuor: Guillelmum et Tedbaldum, Stephanumque et Henricum”, adding that Henri was brought up “ab infantia...in cœnobio Cluniacensi”[229]. His date of birth is estimated on the assumption that Henri was younger than his brother the future King Stephen of England. [Archdeacon of Winchester: the Gesta Episcoporum Virdunensium records that "quidam Heinricus…Guintoniensis Angliæ archidiaconus" came [to Germany] with Matilda daughter of Henry I King of England, when recording his later appointment to the see of Verdun[230]. Poull identifies this person as Henri de Blois, son of Etienne Comte de Blois and his wife Adela de Normandie[231]. Poull adds that "Heinricus" was chaplain to Empress Matilda, citing the Gesta: the text does not specify precisely that he held this position, although it is implied. Matilda left England for Germany in early 1110, and was married to Emperor Heinrich V in early 1114. If the estimated birth date of Henri de Blois is correctly shown above, it is unlikely that he would have accompanied the future empress as early 1110, and even less likely that he became the empress’s chaplain at that time. The Gesta continues by recording that "Heinricus", on the recommendation of Emperor Heinrich V, was elected Bishop of Verdun in 1118 but could not be consecrated due to the ongoing dispute between the papacy and the empire regarding lay investiture[232]. The Pope arranged his consecration in Milan by cardinal John of Cremona, but the emperor forbade the inhabitants of Verdun from receiving him and he took refuge in the fortress of Hattonchatel. He was finally installed in 1120 with the military support of Renaud Comte [de Bar], Comte de Verdun, but was expelled in 1123 by Henri Comte de Grandpré who stormed Verdun on the orders of Emperor Heinrich V. He escaped by swimming across the river Meuse. He was reinstalled as bishop following the peace of Chalade signed between Renaud de Bar and the emperor in 1124, but left after the death of Pope Calixtus[233]. The Gesta makes no reference to the subsequent fate of "Heinricus", and the question remains open whether this person could have been Henri de Blois. His probable age suggests otherwise, considering the age before which bishops were not normally appointed at the time. However, given the tense relations which existed between Emperor Heinrich and the church, it is not impossible that the former made the appointment whatever the age of his appointee. No other "Henry archdeacon of Winchester" has yet been identified.] Monk at the priory of Cluny. Monk at Bermondsey Abbey, later abbot[234]. Orderic Vitalis records that he was appointed abbot of Glastonbury[235] in 1126. He was nominated Bishop of Winchester 4 Oct 1129, and consecrated 17 Nov 1129. The Continuator of Florence of Worcester records that "rex Anglorum Heinricus…cuius nepos Glæstoniensis abbas Henricus" was elected bishop of Winchester in Oct and consecrated "XV Kal Dec"[236]. Matthew Paris records the creation of "Henricus abbas Glastoniensis, nepos Henrici regis" as bishop of Winchester in 1129[237]. He was elected Archbishop of Canterbury in 1136, subject to papal approval[238]."

     "Eleanor of Blois/Champagne (French: Eléonore) (1102–1147) was a French noblewoman.
Life
     "She was the daughter of Stephen II, Count of Blois and Adela of Normandy, daughter of the king of England. She married Ralph I, Count of Vermandois and became mother of Hugh II of Vermandois (1127 to 1212), count of Vermandois and of Valois, then monk in 1160.
     "Eleonor’s marriage with Ralph I was dissolved at the request of Eleanor of Aquitaine, whose sister Petronilla of Aquitaine was in love with Raoul.[1] This led to a war with Theobald II of Champagne, who was Eleanor’s brother. The war lasted two years (1142–1144) and ended with the occupation of Champagne by the royal army. Eleanor died in 1147.

     Emma "bâtarde de Blois" (?) of Blois married Herbert FitzHenry of Winchester;      NB: Med Lands says the identification of Herbert's wife "Emma" as the illegitimate dau. of Etienne de Blois should be treated with caution.
Wikipedia says: "Most sources state that Herbert married Emma, half-sister of King Stephen and Henry of Blois, Bishop of Winchester,[6] and that she was an illegitimate daughter of Stephen II, Count of Blois, Stephen's father.[7] New research, however, suggests that Emma might have been a daughter of Hunger fitzOdin, who held lands in Dorset in the Domesday survey.[3][8]" Wikipedia cites:

     Wikipédia (Fr.) states: "Enfant illégitime possible : Emma, épouse de Herbert de Winchester. Il semble toutefois qu'Emma n'ait rien à voir avec la Maison de Blois8. Elle serait plutôt la fille de Hunger fitz Odin, seigneur de Broad Windsor (Dorset)8. Elle est la mère de Guillaume FitzHerbert, archevêque d'York (1143-1147, 1153-1154). Wikipédia (Fr.) cites: 8. Janet Burton, « William of York (d. 1154) », Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004.

     The DNB entry for Herbert and Emma's son, William of York, says: "there is evidence that his wife was not a member of the house of Blois but rather the daughter of Hunger fitz Odin, Domesday tenant of Broad Windsor, Dorset. Domesday Book shows Herbert to have been a Hampshire landowner, of local significance only."8,4,9,10,11 Emma "bâtarde de Blois" (?) of Blois was born before 1102 at Blois, Loire-et-Cher, France.2

     "[EMMA . The Hyde Register lists "Herbertus camerarius, Arnulfus filius eius, Emma uxor eius" immediately after the names of King Henry I and his first wife[239]. Secondary sources state that the wife of Herbert FitzHenry was Emma de Blois, illegitimate daughter of Etienne Comte de Blois. This is presumably based on the Chronicle of Meaux, in Yorkshire, which names "comitis --- Herberti filius, ex Emma sorore regis Anglorum Stephani progenitus"[240]. As this source is dated to [1394/1400], it is unlikely to be conclusive in relation to events which occurred 250 years earlier, in the absence of other corroborative evidence. Eyton includes no reference to any wife of Herbert FitzHenry in his article on the barony of FitzHerbert[241]. Until further evidence comes to light, it is suggested that the information should be treated with caution. If it is correct, the chronology of the FitzHerbert family dictates that Emma must have been born while her supposed father was still young, probably before his marriage to Adela of England in 1080.
