; per Stewart: Baldwin (Baudouin) V de Lille (Balduinus Insulanus, Balduinus Pius)
Count of Flanders, 1035-1067.

During the reign of Baldwin IV, Baldwin rebelled against his father, temporarily driving him out of Flanders, but they were later reconciled through the influence of duke Robert of Normandy, and peace was made at Audenarde in 1030 [GND vi, 6 (vol. 2, pp. 52-5); Interpolation to the chronicle of Sigebert of Gembloux, s.a. 1030, Sigeb. auctarium Affligemense, MGH SS 6: 399]. Baldwin V succeeded his father Baldwin IV in 1035, and he was succeeded by his son Baldwin VI in 1067. His other son, Robert the Frisian, also became count of Flanders, after defeating and killing his nephew Arnulf III in battle in 1071.

Date of Birth: Probably ca. 1012 or before.
Since Baldwin's rebellion against his father appears to have occurred shortly before 1030, a birthdate after ca. 1012 is unlikely.
Place of Birth: Unknown.

Date of Death: 1 September 1067.
Place of Death: (Buried at Lille)
["Obiit Baldwinus potentissimus marchisus." Ann. Bland., s.a. 1067, Grierson (1937), 28 (same entry erroneously under 1069, Ann. Formos., ibid., 127); "Obiit Baldwinus potentissimus marchisus, qui Insule sepultus est." Ann. Elmarenses, s.a. 1067, 93; "Obiit Balduinus comes kal. Septembris; Insulae sepelitur." (the last two words in a different hand of the twelfth century), Annales Elnonenses, s.a. 1067, Grierson (1937), 158]. Grierson cites the obituary of Saint-Pierre de Lille as confirming the date of 1 September [Grierson (1937), 158, n. 5].

Father: Baldwin IV, d. 29 or 30 May 1035, count of Flanders, 987×8-1035.

Mother: Otgiva of Luxemburg, d. 21 February 1030.
["Balduinus Barbatus duxit filiam Gisleberti comitis Odgivam, ex qua suscepit Balduinum Insulanum..." Genealogia comitum Flandriae Bertiniana, MGH SS 9: 306] See the page of Baldwin IV for further details.

Spouse: m. 1028, Adèle, d. 1079, daughter of Robert II, king of France.
["Cuius filius prefatus Robertus, sciens Balduinum Barbatum Flandrensium comitem tunc temporis magne esse potentie, filiam Adelam adhuc puellulam filio eius adolescentulo Balduino Insulano desponsavit patrique eius nutriendam tradidit." Historiae Tornacensis, ii, 9, MGH SS 14: 336; "... ex qua suscepit Balduinum Insulanum, qui duxit filiam Rodberti regis Francorum Adelam." Genealogia comitum Flandriae Bertiniana, MGH SS 9: 306; "Tempore sub eodem Balduinus, satrapa Flandrensis, sobolem suam cupiens innormare prosapia regali, Robertum, Francorum regem, expetiit filiam eius poscens filio suo Balduino dari. Quam adeptam a palatinis ferens tricliniis ad domum propriam in cunis asportauit, annos usque ad nubiles eam nutriens cura diligenti." GND vi, 6 (vol. 2, pp. 52-3)]. There does not seem to be any good reason to identify her with Adèle, wife of Richard III of Normandy, as has often been done.

Children:
Three well known children of Baldwin V are documented by numerous sources ["Balduinus Insulanus genuit Balduinum Hasnoniensum, et Rodbertum cognomento Iherosolimitanum, et Matildem uxorem Guillelmi regis Anglorum." Genealogia comitum Flandriae Bertiniana, MGH SS 9: 306 (Here, Robert the Frisian is erroneously given the nickname of his son Robert II); "Balduinus Pius comes Flandrie duxit Adelam, filiam Roberti regis Francie, ex qua suscepit Balduinum Montensum et Robertum Frisonem et Mantildam filiam, que nupsit Wilhelmo comiti Normannie, qui Angliam acquisivit;" De genere comitum Flandrensium notae Parisienses, MGH SS 13: 257].

MALE Baldwin VI, d. 17 July 1070 ["Obiit Baldwinus marchisus, qui Hasnonii sepultus est." Ann. Bland., s.a. 1070, 28; "Obiit Balduinus comes iunior XVI kal. Augusti; Hasnonie defertur tumulandus." Ann. Elnonenses, s.a. 1070, 159], count/marquis of Flanders, 1067-1070; count of Hainaut; m. Richilde, countess of Hainaut, widow of Hermann, count of Hainaut ["Balduinus ex Richelde vidua Herimanni comitis Montensis duos suscepit filios, Arnulfum et Balduinum." Genealogia comitum Flandriae Bertiniana, MGH SS 9: 306].

FEMALE Matilda, d. 2 November 1083, m. William I "the Conqueror", d. 9 September 1087, duke of Normandy, 1035-1087; king of England, 1066-1087.

MALE Robert "the Frisian", d. 12 or 13 October 1093 ["Eodemque anno III id. Octobris obiit Rodbertus, primus huius nominis Flandriæ marchysus." Ann. Bland., s.a. 1093, 31; "Et Rotbertus comes Casletensis moritur IV id. Octobris." Ann. Formos., s.a. 1093; see Grierson (1937), 31, n. 2], count/marquis of Flanders, 1071-1093, m. Gertrude, widow of Floris I, count of Holland, and daughter of Bernhard II, duke of Saxony ["Horum patruus Robertus duxit filiam Bernardi Saxonum comitis Gertrudem, viduam Florentii comitis Fresonum, et cum ea eius tenuit regnum." Genealogia comitum Flandriae Bertiniana, MGH SS 9: 306].

See the Commentary section for supposed additional children.
Commentary

In addition to the three well documented children of Baldwin V, there are several other supposed children attributed to him by Orderic Vitalis and Aubri de Trois Fontaines (also by the Foigny genealogy, a source closely related to Aubri) [ "Balduinus enim gener Rodberti regis Francorum fortissimus Flandrensium satrapa fuit, et ex Hadala coniuge sua filios ac filias plures multimoda indole pollentes habuit. Rodbertus Fresio, Arnulfus, Balduinus, Udo Treuerum archiepiscopus et Henricus Clericus, et Mathilda regina, atque Iudith uxor Tostici comitis soboles Balduini et Hadalæ sunt." OV Book 4, c. 14 (2: 280-1), and similarly in Book 7, chapter 2; "Soror autem eiusdem regis Henrici Adela predicto Balduino Insulano peperit Balduinum huius nominis sextum, Robertum cognomento Fresonum, Philippum patrem Guilelmi de Ypra et filias duas, Iudith, quam duxit Tostinus comes Nortdanimbrorum in Anglia, et Mathildem predictam Normannorum ducissam." Aubri de Trois Fontaines, Chronica, MGH SS 23, 792; "Supradicta Ala comitissa Flandrensis, soror Henrici regis, peperit Balduinum comitem Flandrie et Philippum, patrem Guilelmi de Ipra, et filias." Genealogiae Fusniacenses, c. 4, MGH SS 13: 252]. Of these, the only one who cannot be directly ruled out is Henry "the clerk", who, if he existed at all, is otherwise unknown. Modern authorities have usually avoided the mistake of including these individuals among the children of Baldwin V.

Supposed child (existence uncertain):

MALE Henry "the clerk" [Orderic]
Listed by Orderic Vitalis among the sons of Baldwin V, he is otherwise unknown. Vanderkindere [1: 299] dismisses Henry with the remark that the name is unknown in the family of Baldwin, but this overlooks the fact that Baldwin's wife had a brother named Henry, making this a plauble name for a child of Baldwin V. However, the other mistakes made by Orderic on the children of Baldwin V make it difficult to accept this son in the absence of further testimony.

Falsely attributed children:

FEMALE Judith, d. 1094, m. (1) Tostig, earl of Northumbria; m. (2) Welf, duke of Bavaria. [Orderic, Aubri]
In fact a half-sister of Baldwin V, and daughter of Baldwin IV by a later marriage, but incorrectly called a daughter of Baldwin V by a number of sources. See the page on Judith for a detailed discussion.

MALE Arnulf, "consul" of Flanders. [Orderic]
The fact that Orderic calls him "consul" indicates that this son is an error, and not just another unknown son of Baldwin V. He is undoubtedly an error for youthful count Arnulf III, son of Baldwin VI and grandson of Baldwin V.

MALE Udo, d. 1078 [Annales Necrologici Prumienses, MGH SS 13: 222], archbishop of Treves. [Orderic]
He was in fact a son of count Eberhard and his wife Ida ["Hic [Uoto] ex Alamannorum prosapia oriundus, patre Everhardo comite, matre Ita..." Gesta Treverorum, MGH SS 8: 183 (also n. 80, which identifies Eberhard as count of Nellenburg)]. The reason for Orderic's mastake is unclear.

MALE Philippe, father of Guillaume d'Ypres. [Aubri, Genealogiae Fusniacenses]
Philippe was in fact a younger son of Robert the Frisian, and thus grandson of Baldwin V ["119. De Willelmo de Ypre: Willelmus de Lo, ex concubina filius Philippi, fratris Roberti iunioris ..." Simon, Gesta abbatum S. Bertini Sithiensium ii, 119, MGH SS 13: 658; "... Willelmus de Ypra, filius Philippi, fratris R[oberti] comitis ..." Gesta abbatum S. Bertini Sithiensium (continuation), c. 5, MGH SS 13: 665].

; Per Genealogics:
     “Borrell was born in 927, the son of Suniario I, conde de Barcelona, and Richilde de Toulouse. During his reign, he employed the title _dux Gothiae,_ or 'Duke of Gothia'. In 947, he retired his father to a monastery and took over the government of the counties of Barcelona, Gerona, and Ausona. He ruled jointly with his brother Mirón until 966. In 948 he inherited Urgel.
     “In 968 Borrell married Ledgarda de Toulouse, daughter of Raimond IV, comte de Toulouse, with whom he had two sons and two daughters, of whom Ramon Borrell I, Armengol and Ermengarde would have progeny. After Ledgarda's death he married Aimerudis d'Auvergne, but this marriage did not result in progeny.
     “Borrell was a diplomat, not a warrior like his father. He maintained cordial relations with his most powerful neighbours: the Franks to the north and the Moors to the south. He exchanged many emissaries with the Caliphate of Córdoba and confirmed a peace treaty with Al-Hakam II. He also maintained good relations with the papacy.
     “Borrell was also a patron of learning and culture. In 967 he visited the monastery of Aurillac, where the abbot asked him to take Gerbert of Aurillac with him so that the young man could study mathematics in Spain. In the following years, Gerbert studied under the direction of Bishop Atto of Vich, some 60 km north of Barcelona, and probably also at the nearby monastery of Santa Maria de Ripoll.
     “In 969 and 970, Borrell travelled to Rome to meet Pope John XIII and Emperor Otto I in order to reorganise the ecclesiastical structure in Catalonia. This included the reinstatement of the archdiocese of Tarragona. The Pope persuaded Otto to employ Gerbert as a tutor for his young son, the future Emperor Otto II.
     “In 985 the Hispanic March was attacked by Moorish general Almanzor. This was the largest and most serious attack during Borrell's reign. Almanzor managed to take Barcelona which was pillaged and sacked. Many citizens were taken prisoner by the Muslim forces. Borrell's petitions sent to Lothair, the king of France, in Verdun were ignored. As a consequence of this, when Hugh Capet ascended the French throne in 988 Borrell refused to pledge his fealty. As a result the bond of vassalage between the March and France was broken. De facto independence had begun in earnest and Catalonia became drawn into a more Iberian influence.
     “In 988 Borrell divided his lands between his sons, giving Ramon Borrell his original inheritance (from 947) and Armengol the county of Urgel. After passing over all government roles to his sons, Borrell died on 30 September 992.”.3 GAV-28 EDV-28.

The Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium names (in order) "Borellus, Ermengaudus et Miro" as the three sons of "Sunyer", specifying that "Borrellus filius Suniarii comitis Urgelli" succeeded his cousin "Seniofredus" in Barcelona[219]. His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 23 Nov 934 under which “Suniarius…comes et Marchio” donated property to the church of Girona, for the souls of “patri meo Wifredi quondam, vel fratri meo Wifredi quondam…vel filio meo Borrello”[220]. “Suniarius comes ac marchius et uxor mea Richildes comitissa” donated donated property to the church of Barcelona, for the souls of “patri meo condam qui fuit Guifredi comitis et matri mea condam qui fuit Guidinillis comitissa et fratri meo qui fuit condam Borrello comites...et proles meos condam Ermengadus et Borrellus”, by charter dated 16 May 944[221]. He succeeded his father in 950 as Comte de Barcelona, Girona, Osona, i Urgell. "Borrellus comes" donated property "in comitatu Ausona in…Tolosa", inherited from "genitori meo Suniario", to Ripoll Sant Joan by charter dated 19 Feb 955[222]. "Ricildis comitissa" donated property to the abbey of la Grasse by charter dated 954 before 31 Aug subscribed by "Miro comes, Borellus comes"[223], the subscribers assumed to be her sons. "Borrellum et Mironem uterque fratres et marchiones comites" donated property to Monserrat, as requested by "condam Richilli comitissa" in her testament, by charter dated 27 Dec 956[224]. He formed an alliance with Fernando González Conde de Castilla and García III Sánchez King of Navarre against Caliph Al-Hakam II. The alliance was, however, unsuccessful and comte Borrell was defeated by the governor of Zaragoza in 965[225]. “Borrellus...comes et marchio et coniux nostra Ledgardis comitissa” sold “ecclesia de sancti Stephani...in puig de Granolers” to “Assolf” by charter dated 25 Jun 972 “in anno primo quo natus est filius eius Raimundus”[226]. "Borrellus…comes et marchio cum coniuge Leudgardis chomitissa" sold the castle of Queralt to "Witardo vicecomite" by charter dated 15 Jul 976[227]. "Borrellus…chomes et marchio" sold property to "Unicfredo que vocant Amado" by charter dated 11 Jun 977, subscribed by "Ledgardis comitissa, Ansulfo, Vuitardus vicescomes…"[228]. "Borrellus…comis et marchio" sold property "in comitatum Orgillitense in villa Cuilare seu Montan-Goncello" to "Reisendo et uxori tue" to the abbey of Gerri by charter dated 24 May 979[229]. He concluded a treaty with the caliph, marking the end of Catalonia's historic dependence on the Frankish kingdom[230], although the treaty was broken by al-Mansur who captured Barcelona in 985[231]. “Borellus…comes et marchio…filios meos Raymundo et Ermengode” ordered the security of “castro…Cardona”, constructed by “avus meus Wifredus comes et marchio”, by charter dated 9 Apr 986, subscribed by “Geribertus vicecomes…Gocefridus frater Borelli comes”[232]. "Borrello…Hibereo duci atque marchiso" donated property to Sant Cugat del Vallés by charter dated 10 Mar 988, subscribed by "Eimerud…comitissa, Miro, Raimundus comes, Ermengaudis…Suniarius comes…"[233]. "Borrellus…comes et marchio" exchanged property with "uxori mee Ermerud comitissa" which she held "in comitatu Urgellense" by charter dated 5 Sep 988 which names "fratri meo Mironi comiti…condam" and is subscribed by "Raimundus comes filio Borrello comitis"[234]. "Borrellus comes et marchio" sold property "in comitatu Urgellitano in valle Castro Leoni" to "Gillelmo vicecomite et uxori tue Sancia" by charter dated 8 Oct 988[235]. The testament of "Borellus comes" dated 24 Sep 993 provides for the disposition of his titles between his successors, as shown below[236].

Her birth date is estimated on the assumption that she was 15 years old or younger at the time of her marriage, but old enough to have given birth to her first child before the date of this charter. Bofarull records a suggestion by Marca that Ledgarde was the daughter of "Ramon Pons y Garsinda condes de Auvernia"[239]. It is chronological impossible for Ledgarde to have been the daughter of Raymond Pons Comte de Toulouse et d´Auvergne whose children must have been born in the range [920/30]. If Ledgarde did belong to the Toulouse family, she must have been Ledgarde, daughter of Raymond III Comte de Toulouse & his wife [Gundinildis ---], whose children would have been born in the range [940/60]. “Borrellus...comes et marchio et coniux nostra Ledgardis comitissa” sold “ecclesia de sancti Stephani...in puig de Granolers” to “Assolf” by charter dated 25 Jun 972 “in anno primo quo natus est filius eius Raimundus”[240]. “Borrellus comes et marchio seu Guiffredus consanguineus meus” donated “in loco...castrum Lordano vel in civitate Ysauna...ecclesias” to the church of Urgell by charter dated 30 Jul 973[241]. "Borrellus…comes et marchio cum coniuge Leudgardis chomitissa" sold the castle of Queralt to "Witardo vicecomite" by charter dated 15 Jul 976[242]. "Borrellus…chomes et marchio" sold property to "Unicfredo que vocant Amado" by charter dated 11 Jun 977, subscribed by "Ledgardis comitissa, Ansulfo, Vuitardus vicescomes…"[243]. "Borrellus comes et marchio et uxori mee Ledegards" donated property "in comitatu Ausona" to Vic by charter dated 16 Apr 980[244].
     "m secondly (before 10 Mar 988) as her second husband, AIMERUDIS, widow of ---, daughter of --- (-after 992). "Borrello…Hibereo duci atque marchiso" donated property to Sant Cugat del Vallés by charter dated 10 Mar 988, subscribed by "Eimerud…comitissa, Miro, Raimundus comes, Ermengaudis…Suniarius comes…"[245]. "Borrellus…comes et marchio" exchanged property with "uxori mee Ermerud comitissa" which she held "in comitatu Urgellense" by charter dated 5 Sep 988 which names "fratri meo Mironi comiti…condam" and is subscribed by "Raimundus comes filio Borrello comitis"[246]. The testament of "Borellus comes" dated 24 Sep 993 names "uxore mea Aimerudis" and also "Aldria filia tua" when addressing his wife, which provides confirmation of her first marriage[247]. The identity of her first husband is not known. "

"Borrello…Hibereo duci atque marchiso" donated property to Sant Cugat del Vallés by charter dated 10 Mar 988, subscribed by "Eimerud…comitissa, Miro, Raimundus comes, Ermengaudis…Suniarius comes…"[233]. "Borrellus…comes et marchio" exchanged property with "uxori mee Ermerud comitissa" which she held "in comitatu Urgellense" by charter dated 5 Sep 988 which names "fratri meo Mironi comiti…condam" and is subscribed by "Raimundus comes filio Borrello comitis"[234]. "Borrellus comes et marchio" sold property "in comitatu Urgellitano in valle Castro Leoni" to "Gillelmo vicecomite et uxori tue Sancia" by charter dated 8 Oct 988[235]. The testament of "Borellus comes" dated 24 Sep 993 provides for the disposition of his titles between his successors, as shown below[236]. The Annales Barcinonenses record the death in 993 of "Borrelli comes Barchinonensis"[237].
     "m firstly (968 or before) LEDGARDE, daughter of --- ([950/53]-after 16 Apr 980). “Borrellus comes et marchio” donated property to the monastery of San Saturnino de Urgell, for the souls of "…uxoris meæ Letgarda vel prolis meæ, que de me et illa procreata est, et…fratris mei Mironis comitis atque marchionis", by charter dated 6 Jun 964[238]. Her birth date is estimated on the assumption that she was 15 years old or younger at the time of her marriage, but old enough to have given birth to her first child before the date of this charter. Bofarull records a suggestion by Marca that Ledgarde was the daughter of "Ramon Pons y Garsinda condes de Auvernia"[239]. It is chronological impossible for Ledgarde to have been the daughter of Raymond Pons Comte de Toulouse et d´Auvergne whose children must have been born in the range [920/30]. If Ledgarde did belong to the Toulouse family, she must have been Ledgarde, daughter of Raymond III Comte de Toulouse & his wife [Gundinildis ---], whose children would have been born in the range [940/60]. “Borrellus...comes et marchio et coniux nostra Ledgardis comitissa” sold “ecclesia de sancti Stephani...in puig de Granolers” to “Assolf” by charter dated 25 Jun 972 “in anno primo quo natus est filius eius Raimundus”[240]. “Borrellus comes et marchio seu Guiffredus consanguineus meus” donated “in loco...castrum Lordano vel in civitate Ysauna...ecclesias” to the church of Urgell by charter dated 30 Jul 973[241]. "Borrellus…comes et marchio cum coniuge Leudgardis chomitissa" sold the castle of Queralt to "Witardo vicecomite" by charter dated 15 Jul 976[242]. "Borrellus…chomes et marchio" sold property to "Unicfredo que vocant Amado" by charter dated 11 Jun 977, subscribed by "Ledgardis comitissa, Ansulfo, Vuitardus vicescomes…"[243]. "Borrellus comes et marchio et uxori mee Ledegards" donated property "in comitatu Ausona" to Vic by charter dated 16 Apr 980[244].
     "m secondly (before 10 Mar 988) as her second husband, AIMERUDIS, widow of ---, daughter of --- (-after 992). "Borrello…Hibereo duci atque marchiso" donated property to Sant Cugat del Vallés by charter dated 10 Mar 988, subscribed by "Eimerud…comitissa, Miro, Raimundus comes, Ermengaudis…Suniarius comes…"[245]. "Borrellus…comes et marchio" exchanged property with "uxori mee Ermerud comitissa" which she held "in comitatu Urgellense" by charter dated 5 Sep 988 which names "fratri meo Mironi comiti…condam" and is subscribed by "Raimundus comes filio Borrello comitis"[246]. The testament of "Borellus comes" dated 24 Sep 993 names "uxore mea Aimerudis" and also "Aldria filia tua" when addressing his wife, which provides confirmation of her first marriage[247]. The identity of her first husband is not known. "

; I recently came across the following charter for a grant of
lands in Knapdale to Archibald (Gillespic) Campbell in 1353:

26. Charter by John of Menteith to Gillespic Campbell of
Lochow, of his lands in Knapdale. - [29th November] 1353.

" SCIANT presentes et futuri, quod ego Johannes de Menthet, dominus
de Cnappodol et de Aran, dedi, concessi, et in hac presenti carta
mea confirmaui fideli consanguineo meo Gilleasbeg Cambel, domino de
Lochowo, et heredibus suis ac assignatis, de me et heredibus meis,

semitis, in aquis, in stagnis, in venacionibus, in piscacionibus, in
molendinis, in siluis, in montibus, et cum omnibus aliis
pertinenciis, libertatibus ac ayssiamentis, ad dictas [terras]
spectantibus vel de iure spectare valentibus in futurum: Si vero
contingat quod fur aut fures, latro uel latrones, in terris
supradictis fuerint atachiati propter furtum, eidem Gilleasbeg,
heredibus suis ac assignatis, concedimus liberam potestatem vendendi
ac dimittendi ipsos, prout sibi placuerit; preterquam quod si ad
mortem fuerint iudicatus aut iudicati ad batibulum et curiam nostram
suspendendi reducantur: Reddendo inde nobis et heredibus nostris
vnum denarium sterlingorum in festo Sancti Martini annuatim
persoluendum, si dictus Gilleasbeg uel heredes sui per nos aut
heredes nostros ad hoc fuerint requisiti, pro omni seruicio seculari
et demanda: Ego vero prefatus Johannes de Menthet et heredes mei
predictas terras dicto Gilleasbeg Cambel et heredibus suis ac
assignatis, contra omnes homines et feminas varantizabimus,
aquietabimus et defendemus: In cuius rei testimonium sigillum
nostrum est appensum: Datum apud Castrum Suffin (Swaine), in
vig[illiis] Sancti Andree Apostoli, anno Domini mccc quinquagesimo
tercio. " [1]


This charter is clearly from John de Menteith, lord of Knapdale
and Arran (d.s.p. 1360), also known as sheriff of Clackmannan. Most
interestingly, the charter clearly states

" ... I, John de Menteith, lord of Knapdale and of Arran, give,
concede and by these presents, my charter, confirm (to) my faithful
cousin Gilleasbeg [Gillespic] Campbell, lord of Loch Awe and his
heirs and assigns.... "

The account in Scots Peerage for the Campbells provides no
documentation as to such a relationship. I discussed this recently
with Andrew B. W. MacEwen, who stated that a solution had been found
some time ago and was perhaps not widely known: the wife of Sir
Colin Campbell (d. ca. 1340) and the mother of Archibald, or
Gillespic, Campbell (d. ca. 1390) was Helen de Menteith, a daughter
of the well-known (or infamous) Sir John de Menteith of Ruskie
(d. ca. 1323) and aunt of the last John de Menteith of Knapdale.

Other evidence of this relationship, as noted by Mr. MacEwen, is
found in the charters and agreements surrounding the feud ca. 1360
between the Menteiths of Ruskie and the Drummonds.

I hope this is helpful.

Cheers,

John

     "Roger, also known as Roger 'the Old', was the son of Arnaldo, comte de Comminges et de Couserans, and Arsenda, comtesse de Carcassonne et de Rasez. He was count of Carcassonne and Rasez from about the late 950s to his death. It has been assumed that his father was a member of the entourage of dukes of Aquitaine, but this is not certain.
     "Before April 970 Roger married Adelais de Pons, widow of Roger de Comminges, with whom he had at least four children of whom Bernardo Roger, Ramón Roger I and Ermensinde would have progeny.
     "Dominating the counties of Carcassès and Rasez, Roger extended his possessions significantly throughout the southern county of Toulouse (partly inherited by his son Bernardo Roger, founder of the county of Foix), one third of the county of Comminges, de Volvestre in Couserans as well as Minerve and the Abbey of Caunes. He was in conflict with the count of Toulouse and with Oliva II Carreta, conde de Cerdaña et de Besalú, against whom he won two military victories."10

; Roger,dit "Le Vieux", succéda à son défunt père Arnaud, un peu avant 957, dans les Comtés de Carcassonne et Couserans ainsi que dans une part de celui de Comminges. Roger le Vieux, possédait toute la partie méridionale du Toulousain. Le Comté de Razès échut à Eudes, pour partie. Il semblerait que l'autre fraction du Comté de Comminges passa chez un troisième fils, Raymond. A Bernard, échurent les terres de Foix. Roger le Vieux décéda vers 1012 et fut inhumé, avec sa femme, en sa chère Abbaye de Saint-Hilaire.3 Roger I "le Vieux" (?) Comte de Carcassonne, de Rasez, de Couserans et de Comminges, sn de Foix was also known as Roger (?) de Comminges.1,9 GAV-28 EDV-28. He was living in 949.9

Adelaide/Adelaiis (?) de Melgueil was also known as Adelaide (?) of Pons.

; Per Med Lands:
     "ADELAIS (-after 1011). "Rodgarius comes…cum Adalissa comitissa conjuge mea et Regimundo sobole" donated property "alodem meum de Corniliano" to the monastery of Saint-Hilaire, Carcassonne by charter dated 979, signed by "Adalaissæ comitissæ, Arnaudi comiti[s […], Regimundi sobolis meæ"[471]. The origin of the wife of Roger [I] Comte de Carcassonne is unknown, although her first marriage is indicated by the reference to her son, presumably by this earlier marriage, in the charter just cited. Stasser has suggested that she was the daughter of Bernard Comte de Melgueil and his wife Sénégonde [de Rouergue], based on onomastic arguments[472]. He suggests that "Petrus episcopus et comes" who subscribed the 979 charter may have been Pierre de Melgueil bishop of Maguelone, who would have been Adelais's brother.]

; Per Histoire de Comtes de Foix: "Par contre, il est certain que son fils [fils du Asnarius/Aznar] Arnaud fut Comte de Comminges et de Couserans. Il avait épousé Arsinde, fille héritière d'Acfred II, dernier Comte de Carcassonne et Razès de la Première Maison. Elle vivait encore en 934. Cet héritage accrut considérablement l'importance des domaines d'Arnaud qui reconnut pour suzerain le Comte de Toulouse. Le Comte Arnaud faisait alors partie des féodaux du Midi les plus puissants par leur fortune territoriale avec son suzerain Toulousain et le Comte de Rouergue."3 Arnaldo/Arnaud II de Pons Cte de Comminges et de Couserans was also known as Ornold I Count of Conserans.

; Per Med Lands:
     "ARNAUD [I] de Comminges (-before 27 Nov 957). Comte de Comminges et de Couserans. "Arnaldus et uxore mea Arsendis" donated property to the abbey of Lézat by charter dated Apr 944, signed by "Arnaldo et uxore sua…Arsendis et filiis suis vel filias…"[14]. "Arnaldus et uxor mea Arsindis, et Rodgarius et Odo filiis nostris" donated property to the abbey of Montolieu, near Carcassonne for the souls of "…et Rodgario fratre meo" by charter dated 7 Apr 949[15].
     "m ([925/35]) ARSINDE, daughter of --- ([905/20]-after [959]). "Arnaldus et uxore mea Arsendis" donated property to the abbey of Lézat by charter dated Apr 944, signed by "Arnaldo et uxore sua…Arsendis et filiis suis vel filias…"[16]. Her parentage is not known. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[17], Arsinde was the daughter of Acfred Duke of Aquitaine, Comte d'Auvergne, first cousin of Acfred [II] Comte de Carcassonne. Settipani highlights that the obvious way of explaining the transmission of the county of Carcassonne to the family of the Comtes de Comminges is that she was Arsinde de Carcassonne, daughter of Acfred Comte de Carcassonne et de Razès Seigneur de Foix & his wife ---[18]. However, the chronology is not ideal. As explained below (Part B), it is likely that her son Roger [I] Comte de Carcassonne was born in the later part of the date range [930/40]. If this is correct, it is likely that Arsinde married in [925/35] which would place her own birth in the range [905/20]. Another difficulty is that there is no indication who held the county of Carcassonne between the death of Comte Acfred [II] in [933] and the time when Arsinde's son Roger was comte, the date of which is uncertain but is unlikely to precede the 950s at the earliest. In particular, no proof has yet been found that the county was inherited by Arsinde's husband, which would have been normal if his wife had been the heiress of Carcassonne. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[19], Arsinde was the daughter of Acfred Duke of Aquitaine. The primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified. It is assumed that it is also speculative based on onomastics. A third possibility is proposed by Stasser, who suggests that she was the sister of Raymond [I] Comte de Rouergue, on the grounds that it is better supported from the onomastic point of view[20]. "Arnaldus et uxor mea Arsindis, et Rodgarius et Odo filiis nostris" donated property to the abbey of Montolieu, near Carcassonne for the souls of "…et Rodgario fratre meo" by charter dated 7 Apr 949[21]. "Arsindis comitissa cum filiis suis Odo et Raimundo" are named in a charter dated 957[22], which suggests that her husband had died before that date. "Arsendes comitissa et filius meus Rodgarius comes" sold property to "Gilaberto vicario" by charter dated 29 Nov 957[23]. "Arsindis comitissa cum filiis suis Odo et Raimundo" signed a charter dated to [959] relating to their property "alode de Magrinnano et de Cugciaco…in comitatu Narbonense"[24].

When Duncan, Earl of Fife returned to King Robert's peace at Crichton,
23 August 1315,
'He agreed to surrender his earldom to the king, in order to receive it
back on certain conditions. Failing any lawful heirs which Earl
Duncan might subsequently beget, it was to be entailed upon the
king himself and any of his lawful heirs to whom he chose to
assign the earldom... If the king were to die without lawful
heir to whom the earldom could be thus assigned, it would
revert to Earl Duncan's cousin Alan, son of Earl Alan of
Menteith.' (Barrow, p. 391)[6]

     "ADELAIS [Blanche] d'Anjou ([940/50]-[29 May 1026, bur Montmajour, near Arles]). Her parentage and first marriage are confirmed by the Chronicle of Saint-Pierre du Puy which names "comes Gaufridus cognomento Grisogonella…Pontius et Bertrandus eius nepotes…matre eorum Adalaide sorore ipsius"[60], the brothers Pons and Bertrand being confirmed in other sources as the sons of Etienne de Brioude (for example the charter dated 1000 under which "duo germani fratres…Pontius, alter Bertrandus" donated property to Saint-Chaffre for the souls of "patris sui Stephani matrisque nomine Alaicis")[61]. Adelais's second and third marriages are confirmed by Richer who records the marriage of Louis and "Adelaidem, Ragemundi nuper defuncti ducis Gothorum uxorem" and their coronation as king and queen of Aquitaine[62]. The Chronicon Andegavensi names "Blanchiam filiam Fulconis Boni comitis Andegavensis" as wife of the successor of "Lotharius rex Francorum", but confuses matters by stating that the couple were parents of "filiam Constantiam" wife of Robert II King of France[63]. The Chronicle of Saint-Maxence names "Blanchiam" as the wife of "Lotharius rex…Ludovicum filium" but does not give her origin[64]. She was crowned Queen of Aquitaine with her third husband on the day of their marriage. The Libro de Otiis Imperialibus names "Blanchiam" as wife of "Ludovicus puer [filius Lotharii]"[65]. Rodulfus Glaber refers to the unnamed wife of "Ludowicum" as "ab Aquitanis partibus uxorem", recounting that she tricked him into travelling to Aquitaine where "she left him and attached herself to her own family"[66]. Richer records her marriage with "Wilelmum Arelatensem" after her divorce from Louis[67]. Her fourth marriage is confirmed by the Historia Francorum which names "Blanca sorore Gaufridi comitis Andegavensis" as wife of "Guillelmi comitis Arelatensis"[68]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Blanche comitisse Arelatensis" as mother of "Constantia [uxor Robertus rex]", specifying that she was "soror Gaufridi Grisagonelli"[69]. The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum names "Blanca sorore eius" ("eius" referring incorrectly to Foulques III "Nerra" Comte d'Anjou) as wife of "Guillelmi Arelatensis comitis" and as mother of Constance, wife of Robert II King of France[70]. "Adalaiz comitissa" donated property to Saint-Victor de Marseille by charter dated 1003[71]. This charter is subscribed by "Emma comitissa…Wilelmus comes", the second of whom was presumably the son of Adelais but the first of whom has not been identified. "Pontius…Massiliensis ecclesie pontifex" issued a charter dated 1005 with the consent of "domni Rodhbaldi comitis et domne Adalaizis comitisse, domnique Guillelmi comitis filii eius"[72]. "Adalax comitissa mater Villelmi quondam Provintie comitis et Geriberga eque comitissa…eiusdem principis olim uxor" donated property to Saint-Victor de Marseille for the soul of their late son and husband respectively by charter dated 1018 (this document makes no mention of Adelais’s supposed fifth husband)[73]. No explanation has been found for her having been named Adelais in some sources and Blanche in others: it is difficult to interpret all these documents to mean that they referred to two separate individuals. Adelais's supposed fifth marriage is deduced from the following: Count Othon-Guillaume's second wife is named Adelais in several charters[74], and Pope Benedict VIII refers to "domnæ Adeleidi comitissæ cognomento Blanchæ" with "nuruique eius domnæ Gerbergæ comitissæ" when addressing her supposed husband in a document dated Sep 1016[75], Gerberga presumably being Count Othon-Guillaume's daughter by his first wife who was the widow of Adelais-Blanche d’Anjou's son by her fourth husband. However, the document in question appears not to specify that "domnæ Adeleidi…" was the wife of Othon Guillaume and the extracts seen (the full text has not yet been consulted) do not permit this conclusion to be drawn. It is perfectly possible that the Pope named Adelais-Blanche in the letter only in reference to her relationship to Othon Guillaume’s daughter. If her fifth marriage is correct, Adelais would have been considerably older than her new husband, and probably nearly sixty years old when she married (Othon-Guillaume's first wife died in [1002/04]), which seems unlikely. Another difficulty is presented by three entries dated 1018, 1024 and 1026 which appear to link Adelais to Provence while, if the fifth marriage was correct, she would have been with her husband (whose death is recorded in Sep 1026) in Mâcon. These entries are: firstly, "Adalax comitissa mater Villelmi quondam Provintie comitis et Geriberga eque comitissa…eiusdem principis olim uxor" donated property to Saint-Victor de Marseille for the soul of their late son and husband respectively by charter dated 1018[76]; secondly, "Vuilelmus filius Rodbaldi" donated property "in comitatu Aquense in valle…Cagnanam" to Marseille Saint-Victor by charter dated 1024, signed by "Adalaiz comitissa, Vuilelmus comes filius Rodbaldi"[77]; and thirdly, a manuscript written by Arnoux, monk at Saint-André-lès-Avignon, records the death in 1026 of "Adalax comitissa"[78]. The necrology of Saint-Pierre de Mâcon records the death "IV Kal Jun" of "Adalasia comitissa vocata regali progenie orta"[79]. An enquiry dated 2 Jan 1215 records that "comitissa Blanca" was buried "apud Montem Majorem"[80].

     "RAYMOND de Toulouse, son of RAYMOND III Comte de Toulouse & his wife Gundinildis --- ([945/55]-killed "in Garazo" [972/79]). The Codex de Roda names "Regemundo…et domnus Ucus episcopus" as the children of "Regemundus" (son of "Pontio" and his wife "filia Garsie Sanzionis") and his unnamed wife, specifying that the younger Raymond was killed "in Garazo"[323]. As pointed out by Settipani[324], it is reasonable to suppose that Raymond was the same person as "…Raymundo filio Gundinildis nepoti meo" who is named in the codicil testament of "Gersindæ comitissæ", widow of Comte Raymond Pons, dated to [972][325]. Apart from these references, there appears to be no documentary record relating to this Comte Raymond. He succeeded his father [before 972] as RAYMOND IV Comte de Toulouse.
     "[m firstly (repudiated) ---. The Vita Fulcranni records that "comitem Tholosanum" (unnamed) repudiated his wife to marry another who had been repudiated by her first husband[326]. The Histoire Générale de Languedoc dates this passage to [975], although, because of the reconstruction of the family of the comtes de Toulouse which it has adopted, it assumes that the count in question was Comte Guillaume III "Taillefer"[327]. Even if the chronology had been favourable to this identification, it is unclear how the passage could refer to Comte Guillaume´s two marriages as there is no record of his second wife, Emma de Provence, having been married before. On the other hand, it is not impossible that the passage could refer to the comte de Toulouse who was the husband of Adelais d´Anjou. No record has been found which dates the death of Adelais´s first husband, and it is not impossible that their marriage was terminated by repudiation rather than his death. If this is correct, the passage could refer to an otherwise unrecorded first marriage of Comte Raymond IV.]

Alfonso III 'The Great' (?) King of Asturias, Galicia and Leon died on 20 December 910.3
     GAV-32 EDV-31 GKJ-33.

Reference: Alfonso III (c. 848 - December 910), called the Great, was the king of León, Galicia and Asturias from 866 until his death. He was the son and successor of Ordoño I. In later sources he is the earliest to be called "Emperor of Spain." He was also titled "Prince of all Galicia" (Princeps totius Galletiae[1]).
Little is known about Alfonso except the bare facts of his reign and of his comparative success in consolidating the kingdom during the weakness of the Umayyad princes of Córdoba. He fought against and gained numerous victories over the Muslims of al-Andalus.
He defeated a Basque rebellion in 867 and, much later, a Galician one as well. He conquered Oporto and Coimbra in 868 and 878 respectively. In about 869, he formed an alliance with the Kingdom of Pamplona, and solidified this link by marrying Jimena, who is thought to have been daughter of king García Íñiguez, or less likely, a member of the Jiménez dynasty, and also married his sister Leodegundia to a prince of Pamplona.
He ordered the creation of three chronicles which presented the theory that the kingdom of Asturias was the rightful successor of the old Visigothic kingdom. He was also a patron of the arts, like his grandfather before him. He built thechurch of Santo Adriano de Tuñón. According to a letter of disputed authenticity dated to 906, the Epistola Adefonsi Hispaniae regis, Alfonso arranged to purchase an "imperial crown" from the cathedral of Tours.[2]
A year before his death, three of Alfonso's sons rose in rebellion and forced him to abdicate, partitioning the kingdom among them. The eldest son, García, became king of León. The second son, Ordoño, reigned in Galicia, while the third,Fruela, received Asturias with Oviedo as his capital. Alfonso died in Zamora, probably in 910. His former realm would be reunited when first García died childless and León passed to Ordoño. He in turn died when his children were too young to ascend, Fruela became king of a reunited crown. His death the next year initiated a series of internecine struggles that led to unstable succession for over a century.

He was King of Asturias, abdicated between 866 and 901 at Asturias, Spain (now).1,3
