     ; Per Stasser email: "Sa soeur cadette Sibillia, quant à elle, épousa Ebles de Roucy (Will. APUL. IV, 11-15 : Šaltera nubsit egregio comiti Francorum stemmate claro Ebalus hic dictus subcombere nescius hosti belligeras acies ad proelia ducere doctusŠ. Alex. I, 12, 11. Le nom de l¹épouse d¹Ebles de Roucy est donné par une charte de 1082 par laquelle Ebles de Roucy, son frère André comte de Ramerupt et leur cousin Hugues de Dammartin, avec leurs épouses Sibillia, Adelaïde et Roaïda, donnèrent à l¹abbaye de Marmoutier le prieuré de la Celle sur Morin (du PLESSIS, t 2, PJ
n° 17 et 18). Ebles de Roucy était le fils d¹Hilduin III, comte de Ramerupt, et d¹Adélaïde de Roucy (Gen. Fusn., p 254 : Šsecunda filia predicti Ebali de Roceio soror prefate Hadevidis de Ruminiaco nupsit Helduino comiti de Ramerut cuius fratres extiterunt comes Suessiionis et comes de DonmartinŠMemoratus comes Helduinus de Adelaide coniuge sua filia scilicet Ebali de Roceio genuit Ebalum comitem eiusdem loci et Andream comitem de Ramerut et filias. De Ebalo comite de Roceio ortus est Wischardus et Thomas et Hugo cognomento cholez et filieŠ). En 1073, il partit en Aragon à la tête d¹une armée pour aider le roi Sanche Ramirez lors de la reconquista (SUGER, p 26-27). Sur cette lignée, voir MORANVILLE, 1925 ; BUR, 1977, p 253-257) . Il se pourrait toutefois que cet événement ait eu lieu deux ans plus tôt, en tout cas en ce qui concerne Mathilda, car une charte du 13 juillet 1078 prouve que Raymond Bérenger II l¹avait déjà épousée à cette date (ACA Ramon Berenguer II, n° 31 : Ego Raimundus gratia Dei Barchinonensis comes et marchio et Maaltis nutu dei comitissa pariter in unum damusŠ). A moins de supposer que le comte de Barcelone ait eu deux épouses nommées Mathilda, l¹une avant juillet 1078 et décédée avant le printemps 1080, force est de reconnaître que les noces de la seconde fille de Guiscard et Sichelgaita furent célébrée en juin 1078 et non en juin 1080. Si il y eut effectivement un double mariage, alors celui de Sibillia eut également lieu en 1078. Une autre solution est que Guillaume des Pouilles et Anne Comnène ont confondu deux évènements. Le mariage de Sibillia avec Ebles de Roucy, un des chefs des croisés français en péninsule ibérique, et soutien du St-Siège, dut intervenir après la réconciliation du duc Robert et du souverain pontife en juin 1080 . Celui de Mathilda fut célébré avant juillet 1078, peut-être en même temps que celui de sa s¦ur aînée avec Hugues d¹Este. Le mariage de Sibillia avec un champion de la reconquista avait été commandité par le pape, et celui de sa s¦ur Mathilda avec un barcelonnais semblait avoir le même but ; tous deux intervenaient dans un contexte où la papauté entendait pousser les Normands à appuyer la reconquista . Guillaume des Pouilles et Anne Comnène avaient vraisemblablement entendu parler d¹un double mariage et en ont conclu qu¹ils s¹agissait de ceux de Mathilda et Sibillia, organisés sous l¹égide de Grégoire VII en 1080."3

; Per Genealogics:
     “Ebles II was the son of Hildouin IV de Montdidier, comte de Roucy, and Adèle or Alice de Roucy, heiress of Roucy.
     “In 1064 Ebles went to Spain to fight the Saracens during the so-called Barbastro Crusade, then in 1076 he helped Sancho I, king of Aragón, who obtained the kingdom of Navarre through political brinkmanship after its own royal family became mired in a fratricidal assassination scandal. On this second expedition his nephew Rotrou I, comte du Perche, was also involved. After the victory Sancho married Ebles' sister Felicie de Montdidier.
     “It is likely that Ebles was involved in other distant adventures, and particularly against Byzantium with Robert Guiscard, duke of Apulia; about 1081 he married Sybille, the daughter of Robert and Sigelgaita de Salerno. Of their five children, Hugues I would have progeny.
     “In 1082 Ebles donated the roads to Mortcerf to the abbey of Saint-Martin de Pontoise.
     “Ebles and his sons did not participate in the First Crusade, which is surprising given their adventurous character and their alliances with the Latin lords of the East. However Ebles took part in the crusades in Spain and Italy, hoping to receive a principality more important than his county of Roucy, but in this he failed. On his return to Champagne he sought to carve out a principality at the expense of his neighbours and the archbishop of Reims. The chronicler Abbot Suger writes that Ebles and his son Guiscard created devastation in Reims. During the summer of 1102 the future King Louis VI 'the Fat' had to go to war to end their depredations and force them to submit. Ebles died about 1104.”.4

Saint Thomas d'Aquino1

M, #23244, b. between 1225 and 1227, d. 7 March 1274
FatherLandolfo I d'Aquino Count of Aquino1
MotherTeodora di Caracciola Countess of Teano1
Last Edited4 Jul 2003
     Saint Thomas d'Aquino was born between 1225 and 1227 at Rocca Secca, Kingdom of Naples, Italy (now).1
Saint Thomas d'Aquino died on 7 March 1274 at Fossa Nuova, Kingdom of Naples, Italy (now).1
     ; St. Thomas Aquinas - Philosopher, theologian, doctor of the Church (Angelicus Doctor), patron of Catholic universities, colleges, and schools. Born at Rocca Secca in the Kingdom of Naples, 1225 or 1227; died at Fossa Nuova, 7 March, 1274.

The great outlines and all the important events of his life are known, but biographers differ as to some details and dates. Death prevented Henry Denifle from executing his project of writing a critical life of the saint. Denifle's friend and pupil, Dominic Prümmer, O.P., professor of theology in the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, took up the work and published the "Fontes Vitae S. Thomae Aquinatis, notis historicis et criticis illustrati"; and the first fascicle (Toulouse, 1911) has appeared, giving the life of St. Thomas by Peter Calo (1300) now published for the first time. From Tolomeo of Lucca . . . we learn that at the time of the saint's death there was a doubt about his exact age (Prümmer, op. cit., 45). The end of 1225 is usually assigned as the time of his birth. Father Prümmer, on the authority of Calo, thinks 1227 is the more probable date (op. cit., 28). All agree that he died in 1274.

Landulph, his father, was Count of Aquino; Theodora, his mother, Countess of Teano. His family was related to the Emperors Henry VI and Frederick II, and to the Kings of Aragon, Castile, and France. Calo relates that a holy hermit foretold his career, saying to Theodora before his birth: "He will enter the Order of Friars Preachers, and so great will be his learning and sanctity that in his day no one will be found to equal him" (Prümmer, op. cit., 18). At the age of five, according to the custom of the times, he was sent to receive his first training from the Benedictine monks of Monte Cassino. Diligent in study, he was thus early noted as being meditative and devoted to prayer, and his preceptor was surprised at hearing the child ask frequently: "What is God?"

About the year 1236 he was sent to the University of Naples. Calo says that the change was made at the instance of the Abbot of Monte Cassino, who wrote to Thomas's father that a boy of such talents should not be left in obscurity (Prümmcr, op. cit., 20). At Naples his preceptors were Pietro Martini and Petrus Hibernus. The chronicler says that he soon surpassed Martini at grammar, and he was then given over to Peter of Ireland, who trained him in logic and the natural sciences. The customs of the times divided the liberal arts into two courses: the Trivium, embracing grammar, logic, and rhetoric; the Quadrivium, comprising music, mathematics, geometry, and astronomy . . . . Thomas could repeat the lessons with more depth and lucidity than his masters displayed. The youth's heart had remained pure amidst the corruption with which he was surrounded, and he resolved to embrace the religious life.

Some time between 1240 and August, 1243, he received the habit of the Order of St. Dominic, being attracted and directed by John of St. Julian, a noted preacher of the convent of Naples. The city wondered that such a noble young man should don the garb of poor friar. His mother, with mingled feelings of joy and sorrow, hastened to Naples to see her son. The Dominicans, fearing she would take him away, sent him to Rome, his ultimate destination being Paris or Cologne. At the instance of Theodora, Thomas's brothers, who were soldiers under the Emperor Frederick, captured the novice near the town of Aquapendente and confined him in the fortress of San Giovanni at Rocca Secca. Here he was detained nearly two years, his parents, brothers, and sisters endeavouring by various means to destroy his vocation. The brothers even laid snares for his virtue, but the pure-minded novice drove the temptress from his room with a brand which he snatched from the fire. Towards the end of his life, St. Thomas confided to his faithful friend and companion, Reginald of Piperno, the secret of a remarkable favour received at this time. When the temptress had been driven from his chamber, he knelt and most earnestly implored God to grant him integrity of mind and body. He fell into a gentle sleep, and, as he slept, two angels appeared to assure him that his prayer had been heard. They then girded him about with a white girdle, saying: "We gird thee with the girdle of perpetual virginity." And from that day forward he never experienced the slightest motions of concupiscence.

The time spent in captivity was not lost. His mother relented somewhat, after the first burst of anger and grief; the Dominicans were allowed to provide him with new habits, and through the kind offices of his sister he procured some books -- the Holy Scriptures, Aristotle's Metaphysics, and the "Sentences" of Peter Lombard. After eighteen months or two years spent in prison, either because his mother saw that the hermit's prophecy would eventually be fulfilled or because his brothers feared the threats of Innocent IV and Frederick II, he was set at liberty, being lowered in a basket into the arms of the Dominicans, who were delighted to find that during his captivity "he had made as much progress as if he had been in a studium generale" (Calo, op. cit., 24).

Thomas immediately pronounced his vows, and his superiors sent him to Rome. Innocent IV examined closely into his motives in joining the Friars Preachers, dismissed him with a blessing, and forbade any further interference with his vocation. John the Teutonic, fourth master general of the order, took the young student to Paris and, according to the majority of the saint's biographers, to Cologne, where he arrived in 1244 or 1245, and was placed under Albertus Magnus, the most renowned professor of the order. In the schools Thomas's humility and taciturnity were misinterpreted as signs of dullness, but when Albert had heard his brilliant defence of a difficult thesis, he exclaimed: "We call this young man a dumb ox, hut his bellowing in doctrine will one day resound throughout the world."

In 1245 Albert was sent to Paris, and Thomas accompanied him as a student. In 1248 both returned to Cologne. Albert had been appointed regent of the new studium generale, erected that year by the general chapter of the order, and Thomas was to teach under him as Bachelor. (On the system of graduation in the thirteenth century see ORDER OF PREACHERS -- II, A, 1, d). During his stay in Cologne, probably in 1250, he was raised to the priesthood by Conrad of Hochstaden, archbishop of that city. Throughout his busy life, he frequently preached the Word of God, in Germany, France, and Italy. His sermons were forceful, redolent of piety, full of solid instruction, abounding in apt citations from the Scriptures.

In the year 1251 or 1252 the master general of the order, by the advice of Albertus Magnus and Hugo a S. Charo (Hugh of St. Cher), sent Thomas to fill the office of Bachelor (sub-regent) in the Dominican studium at Paris. This appointment may be regarded as the beginning of his public career, for his teaching soon attracted the attention both of the professors and of the students. His duties consisted principally in explaining the "Sentences" of Peter Lombard, and his commentaries on that text-book of theology furnished the materials and, in great part, the plan for his chief work, the "Summa theologica".

In due time he was ordered to prepare himself to obtain the degree of Doctor in Theology from the University of Paris, but the conferring of the degree was postponed, owing to a dispute between the university and the friars. The conflict, originally a dispute between the university and the civic authorities, arose from the slaying of one of the students and the wounding of three others by the city guard. The university, jealous of its autonomy, demanded satisfaction, which was refused. The doctors closed their schools, solemnly swore that they would not reopen them until their demands were granted, and decreed that in future no one should be admitted to the degree of Doctor unless he would take an oath to follow the same line of conduct under similar circumstances. The Dominicans and Franciscans, who had continued to teach in their schools, refused to take the prescribed oath, and from this there arose a bitter conflict which was at its height when St. Thomas and St. Bonaventure were ready to be presented for their degrees. William of St-Amour extended the dispute beyond the original question, violently attacked the friars, of whom he was evidently jealous, and denied their right to occupy chairs in the university. Against his book, "De periculis novissimorum temporum" (The Perils of the Last Times), St. Thomas wrote a treatise "Contra impugnantes religionem", an apology for the religious orders (Touron, op. cit., II, cc. vii sqq.) The book of William of St-Amour was condemned by Alexander IV at Anagni, 5 October, 1256, and the pope gave orders that the mendicant friars should be admitted to the doctorate.

About this time St. Thomas also combated a dangerous book, "The Eternal Gospel" (Touron, op. cit., II, cxii). The university authorities did not obey immediately; the influence of St. Louis IX and eleven papal Briefs were required before peace was firmly established, and St. Thomas was admitted to the degree of Doctor in Theology. The date of his promotion, as given by many biographers, was 23 October, 1257. His theme was "The Majesty of Christ". His text, "Thou waterest the hills from thy upper rooms: the earth shall be filled with the fruit of thy works" (Psalm 103:13), said to have been suggested by a heavenly visitor, seems to have been prophetic of his career. A tradition says that St. Bonaventure and St. Thomas received the doctorate on the same day, and that there was a contest of humility between the two friends as to which should be promoted first.

From this time St. Thomas's life may be summed up in a few words: praying, preaching, teaching, writing, journeying. Men were more anxious to hear him than they had been to hear Albert, whom St. Thomas surpassed in accuracy, lucidity, brevity, and power of exposition, if not in universality of knowledge. Paris claimed him as her own; the popes wished to have him near them; the studia of the order were eager to enjoy the benefit of his teaching; hence we find him successively at Anagni, Rome, Bologna, Orvieto, Viterbo, Perugia, in Paris again, and finally in Naples, always teaching and writing, living on earth with one passion, an ardent zeal for the explanation and defence of Christian truth. So devoted was he to his sacred task that with tears he begged to be excused from accepting the Archbishopric of Naples, to which he was appointed by Clement IV in 1265. Had this appointment been accepted, most probably the "Summa theologica" would not have been written.

Yielding to the requests of his brethren, he on several occasions took part in the deliberations of the general chapters of the order. One of these chapters was held in London in 1263. In another held at Valenciennes (1259) he collaborated with Albertus Magnus and Peter of Tarentasia (afterwards Pope Innocent V) in formulating a system of studies which is substantially preserved to this day in the studia generalia of the Dominican Order (cf. Douais, op. cit.)

It is not surprising to read in the biographies of St. Thomas that he was frequently abstracted and in ecstasy. Towards the end of his life the ecstasies became more frequent. On one occasion, at Naples in 1273, after he had completed his treatise on the Eucharist, three of the brethren saw him lifted in ecstasy, and they heard a voice proceeding from the crucifix on the altar, saying "Thou hast written well of me, Thomas; what reward wilt thou have?". Thomas replied, "None other than Thyself, Lord" (Prümmer, op. cit., p. 38). Similar declarations are said to have been made at Orvieto and at Paris.

On 6 December, 1273, he laid aside his pen and would write no more. That day he experienced an unusually long ecstasy during Mass; what was revealed to him we can only surmise from his reply to Father Reginald, who urged him to continue his writings: "I can do no more. Such secrets have been revealed to me that all I have written now appears to be of little value" (modica, Prümmer, op. cit., p. 43). The "Summa theologica" had been completed only as far as the ninetieth question of the third part (De partibus poenitentiae).

Thomas began his immediate preparation for death. Gregory X, having convoked a general council, to open at Lyons on 1 May, 1274, invited St. Thomas and St. Bonaventure to take part in the deliberations, commanding the former to bring to the council his treatise "Contra errores Graecorum" (Against the Errors of the Greeks). He tried to obey, setting out on foot in January, 1274, but strength failed him; he fell to the ground near Terracina, whence he was conducted to the Castle of Maienza the home of his niece the Countess Francesca Ceccano. The Cistercian monks of Fossa Nuova pressed him to accept their hospitality, and he was conveyed to their monastery, on entering which he whispered to his companion: "This is my rest for ever and ever: here will I dwell, for I have chosen it" (Psalm 131:14). When Father Reginald urged him to remain at the castle, the saint replied: "If the Lord wishes to take me away, it is better that I be found in a religious house than in the dwelling of a lay person." The Cistercians were so kind and attentive that Thomas's humility was alarmed. "Whence comes this honour", he exclaimed, "that servants of God should carry wood for my fire!" At the urgent request of the monks he dictated a brief commentary on the Canticle of Canticles.

The end was near; extreme unction was administered. When the Sacred Viaticum was brought into the room he pronounced the following act of faith:

If in this world there be any knowledge of this sacrament stronger than that of faith, I wish now to use it in affirming that I firmly believe and know as certain that Jesus Christ, True God and True Man, Son of God and Son of the Virgin Mary, is in this Sacrament . . . I receive Thee, the price of my redemption, for Whose love I have watched, studied, and laboured. Thee have I preached; Thee have I taught. Never have I said anything against Thee: if anything was not well said, that is to be attributed to my ignorance. Neither do I wish to be obstinate in my opinions, but if I have written anything erroneous concerning this sacrament or other matters, I submit all to the judgment and correction of the Holy Roman Church, in whose obedience I now pass from this life.

He died on 7 March, 1274. Numerous miracles attested his sanctity, and he was canonized by John XXII, 18 July, 1323. The monks of Fossa Nuova were anxious to keep his sacred remains, but by order of Urban V the body was given to his Dominican brethren, and was solemnly translated to the Dominican church at Toulouse, 28 January, 1369. A magnificent shrine erected in 1628 was destroyed during the French Revolution, and the body was removed to the Church of St. Sernin, where it now reposes in a sarcophagus of gold and silver, which was solemnly blessed by Cardinal Desprez on 24 July, 1878. The chief bone of his left arm is preserved in the cathedral of Naples. The right arm, bestowed on the University of Paris, and originally kept in the St. Thomas's Chapel of the Dominican church, is now preserved in the Dominican Church of S. Maria Sopra Minerva in Rome, whither it was transferred during the French Revolution.

A description of the saint as he appeared in life is given by Calo (Prümmer, op. cit., p. 401), who says that his features corresponded with the greatness of his soul. He was of lofty stature and of heavy build, but straight and well proportioned. His complexion was "like the colour of new wheat": his head was large and well shaped, and he was slightly bald. All portraits represent him as noble, meditative, gentle yet strong. St. Pius V proclaimed St. Thomas a Doctor of the Universal Church in the year 1567. In the Encyclical "Aeterni Patris", of 4 August, 1879, on the restoration of Christian philosophy, Leo XIII declared him "the prince and master of all Scholastic doctors". The same illustrious pontiff, by a Brief dated 4 August, 1880, designated him patron of all Catholic universities, academies, colleges, and schools throughout the world.

Roger III de Hauteville Duke of Apulia, Count of Lecce died on 12 May 1148.2,9,5
     ; Per Genealogics :
     "Roger was born about 1121, the eldest son of Roger II, king of Sicily, and Elvira of Castile. He makes his first appearance in the chronicles at Melfi in 1129, jointly accepting with his father and younger brother Tancred the fealty of the rebellious peninsular barons. After his investiture as duke of Apulia in 1135, he was perhaps put under the tutelage or guardianship of the Englishman Robert of Selby, a courtier of his father and chancellor of the kingdom of Sicily.
     "Roger took part in his father's campaigns in Apulia, distinguishing himself in the campaign of 1137 against Ranulf of Alife, whom Pope Innocent II and Emperor Lothar von Supplinburg had invested as rival duke of Apulia. His first major engagement was the Battle of Rignano on 30 October, a battle from which more experienced warriors, like his father, fled and some, like Duke Sergius VII of Naples, died. Roger's bravery and success in the first charge at Rignano solidified his martial reputation early.
     "After Ranulf's death in 1139, Apulia was secured, but Innocent and the dispossessed Robert II of Capua began to march on Roger's nominal capital. At Galluccio, Roger ambushed the papal troops with only a thousand knights and captured the pope and his entourage. Three days later, on 25 July at Mignano, Innocent confirmed the elder Roger as king, the younger as duke, and the third son, Alfonso, as prince of Capua - officially severing Robert of Capua from his support. Next, Duke Roger took the city of Naples into his possession and made it an integral part of the kingdom, ending the republican government which had continued after Sergius' death.
     "In 1140, after the promulgation of the king's Assizes of Ariano, the first ducats were minted bearing an effigy of the young duke in battledress beside his father, with their hands on the Cross. The ducat was named after the duchy of Apulia. Roger and Alfonso, the second son Tancred being dead, then moved into the Abruzzi to harass papal lands. At that time, late in 1140, Roger's bride to be, Elisabeth de Champagne, arrived from the court of her father Thibaut IV-II, comte de Blois et Chartres, et Champagne, and Mathilde von Kärnten. They did not have progeny. Roger's most famous consort was his mistress Bianca di Lecce, the daughter of Accardo, conte di Lecce, with whom he had two illegitimate children, Tancred, later king, and Guglielmo. Also in 1140 Richard III of Gaeta died and his duchy was given to Roger.
     "On 2 or 12 May 1148, aged barely thirty, Roger died of an unknown cause in an unknown location. He was mourned by the Arab poet Abu ed-Daw, who said, 'the arms of the brave have fallen...and the eloquent seek for words in vain.' Roger was buried in the chapel of Saint Mary Magdalene next to the old Cathedral of Palermo. He was later transferred to an eponymous chapel now in the barracks of San Giacomo. His successor was his only surviving brother Guglielmo, later king of Sicily."5

; Per Med Lands:
     "ROGER of Sicily ([1118]-12 May 1148). The Annals of Romoald name (in order) "Rogerium…Tancredum…Anfusium…Guillelmus, Heinricum, filiam unam" as the children of "rex Rogerius" & his first wife, specifying that Roger was later Duke of Apulia[507]. Houben suggests that Roger was born in 1118 in light of his being knighted in Aug 1135, this ceremony normally being conducted at the age of 16[508]. The Chronicle of Romualdo Guarna records that all the cities of Apulia swore homage to "dux…Rogerus…filiisque suis…Rogerio et Tancredo" in Sep 1130[509]. Duke of Apulia 1135, confirmed by Pope Innocent II 25 Jul 1139. Together with his brother Alphonse, he captured Abruzzo in Spring 1140, advancing to Ceprano, the most southerly town of Papal territory. The Annals of Romoald record the death in 1149 of "Rogerius dux Apulie primogenitus [regis Rogerii]"[510], the Annales Casinenses recording the death in 1148[511].
     "m ([1140/43]) as her first husband, ISABELLE de Blois, daughter of THIBAUT IV Comte de Blois & his wife Mathilde von Sponheim [Carinthia] (1130-13 Aug after 1168). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to, but does not name, the third of the six daughters of "comes Campanie Theobaldus" as "quedam ducissa in partibus remotis, hanc postea duxit Guilelmus Goez in dyocesi Carnotensi" specifying that her two daughters were "matrem Gaufridi de Dunzei et Agnetam domnam de Monteforti in Cenomania"[512]. The primary source which confirms her first marriage more precisely has not yet been identified. She returned to France after her husband died and married secondly ([1150/55]) Guillaume [IV] Goët de Montmirail Baron du Perche-Goët. Her second marriage is confirmed by Robert of Torigny which names "Herveus de Juen" as husband of "Guillermus Goeth…primogenitam filiam natam ex una sororem comitis Teobaldi"[513]. The necrology of the Prieuré de Fontaines records the death "13 Aug" of "Domina Elisabeth…monacha, ducissa, soror domine Marie ducisse"[514].
     "Mistress (1): (before [1138]) --- di Lecce, daughter of ACCARDO Conte di Lecce & his wife Matilia ---. Guerrieri refers to "la leggenda assai curiosa degli amori segreti di Sibilla, unica figlia di Roberto conte di Lecce, succeduto a Goffredo figlio di Accardo, col primogenito del re Ruggiero" and adds that "oggi è dichiarata insostenible per la grande confusione di nomi, di fatti e di date, e per gli errori assai evidenti"[515].

Hugo Falcandus records that "Tancred and William, the sons of Duke Roger" were born "by a nobly born mother"[517].

     "ROGER of Sicily ([1118]-12 May 1148). The Annals of Romoald name (in order) "Rogerium…Tancredum…Anfusium…Guillelmus, Heinricum, filiam unam" as the children of "rex Rogerius" & his first wife, specifying that Roger was later Duke of Apulia[507]. Houben suggests that Roger was born in 1118 in light of his being knighted in Aug 1135, this ceremony normally being conducted at the age of 16[508]. The Chronicle of Romualdo Guarna records that all the cities of Apulia swore homage to "dux…Rogerus…filiisque suis…Rogerio et Tancredo" in Sep 1130[509]. Duke of Apulia 1135, confirmed by Pope Innocent II 25 Jul 1139. Together with his brother Alphonse, he captured Abruzzo in Spring 1140, advancing to Ceprano, the most southerly town of Papal territory. The Annals of Romoald record the death in 1149 of "Rogerius dux Apulie primogenitus [regis Rogerii]"[510], the Annales Casinenses recording the death in 1148[511].
     "m ([1140/43]) as her first husband, ISABELLE de Blois, daughter of THIBAUT IV Comte de Blois & his wife Mathilde von Sponheim [Carinthia] (1130-13 Aug after 1168). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to, but does not name, the third of the six daughters of "comes Campanie Theobaldus" as "quedam ducissa in partibus remotis, hanc postea duxit Guilelmus Goez in dyocesi Carnotensi" specifying that her two daughters were "matrem Gaufridi de Dunzei et Agnetam domnam de Monteforti in Cenomania"[512]. The primary source which confirms her first marriage more precisely has not yet been identified. She returned to France after her husband died and married secondly ([1150/55]) Guillaume [IV] Goët de Montmirail Baron du Perche-Goët. Her second marriage is confirmed by Robert of Torigny which names "Herveus de Juen" as husband of "Guillermus Goeth…primogenitam filiam natam ex una sororem comitis Teobaldi"[513]. The necrology of the Prieuré de Fontaines records the death "13 Aug" of "Domina Elisabeth…monacha, ducissa, soror domine Marie ducisse"[514].
     "Mistress (1): (before [1138]) --- di Lecce, daughter of ACCARDO Conte di Lecce & his wife Matilia ---. Guerrieri refers to "la leggenda assai curiosa degli amori segreti di Sibilla, unica figlia di Roberto conte di Lecce, succeduto a Goffredo figlio di Accardo, col primogenito del re Ruggiero" and adds that "oggi è dichiarata insostenible per la grande confusione di nomi, di fatti e di date, e per gli errori assai evidenti"[515]. Chalandon states that legends surrounding King Tancred´s mother, in which she is variously called "Blanche, Béatrice et Sibille", were first fabricated in the mid-16th century[516].

     Sicilian Monarch. The fourth son of Roger II and his first wife Elvira, he was married to Margaret of Navarra who bore him four sons between 1152 and 1158. In 1151 he became his fathers co-regent and succeeded him in 1154. Supported by the Pope, the Byzantine Emperor and the Holy Roman Emperor the sicilian nobles revolted against him several times. In March 1160 William, his wife and their children were arrested in their palace in Palermo. The nobles wanted to put his oldest son Roger on the throne but he was killed in the attack of the palace. The imprisonment didn't last long and after being released he was able to recover his power and crushed the rebellion. He was first buried at the Capella Palatina in Palermo but was later moved to Monreale. Bio by: Lutetia
