He was the elder son of Earl HAAKON and initially ruled jointly with his half-brother HARALD (I) who plotted against him. Tradition suggests that Harald died from a poisoned shirt prepared for Paul, and after Harald's death Paul banished his stepmother Helga and her sister Frakok to Harald's estates in Sutherland. Paul ruled unopposed for the next four years until his cousin, Kali (RAGNALD III), claimed his share of the inheritance. Paul refused and, in 1136, hostilities erupted. Kali was defeated and retreated to Norway, but returned the following year with additional support and deposed Paul. Paul was sent to his sister's home in Atholl, where one tradition states that Paul was imprisoned, blinded and later murdered, though the date is not known. between 1126 and 1137.1

;
Per Genealogics:
     "Duncan was born about 1133, possibly the son of Constantine, called 'filii Magdufe' in King Edgar's charter of 1095, the first mormaer (earl) of Fife to be firmly recorded as such and also the first to bear what became the established name of the lineage. He was the third mormaer (earl) of Fife, succeeding Gille Micheil Macduff, who succeeded Constantine and appears to have held the earldom only from about 1128 to about 1136.
     "With Duncan the seniority of the earls of Fife among the Scottish nobility becomes readily apparent. He was a regular witness in the charters of David I, and, like his predecessors, appears in a prominent position in witness lists. With Duncan the significance of the earls of Fife in promoting the acceptance of new feudal ideals flowing north from England is evident, for about 1136 the earldom of Fife was transformed into a fief held by the king in return for fixed service. Although the exact terms of the grant are not known, there can be little question that Fife was now held in return for knight service. An episode near the end of the life of Duncan is also illustrative of the premier position of these earls. Following the death in 1152 of Henry, earl of Huntingdon, earl of Northumberland, son of David I and his designated successor, the king made provision to ensure the peaceful succession of Henry's eldest son Malcolm IV 'the Maiden' (Máel Coluim IV), in which the earl of Fife played a crucial role. The twelve-year-old Malcolm was entrusted to the care of Earl Duncan, who was given a large army and ordered to take the boy throughout Scotia and proclaim him heir to the kingdom. This demonstrates not only the seniority of the earls of Fife, but also the fact that their allegiance to the Canmore dynasty was unquestioned. It has even been suggested that this duty of escorting the young prince shows that Duncan was meant to act as an unofficial guardian until Malcolm came of age.
     "Duncan fathered his successor Duncan Macduff and a daughter Afraig (Aufrica), who would both have progeny. He died in 1154."3

Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, Edinburgh, 1977, Paget, Gerald. vol 1 153.4 He was Earl of Orkney: [Ashley, pp. 455-456] DAVID earl of Orkney, 1206-14; ruled jointly with JOHN (I) earl of Orkney 1206-31. They were sons of HARALD II and their mother, Gormflaeth, was a niece of SOMERLED, king of the Isles. John's earlship was conditioned by the position of the Orkneys which placed him between activities in Norway and Scotland. At the start of their joint reign, John and David found themselves embroiled in the dynastic civil war in Norway with the Orkneys once again being used as a base for covert operations on the kingdom. Although neither earl seems to have been directly involved in the fighting they were accused of supporting the losing factions and in 1210 were summoned to Bergen, heavily fined, and forced to pay allegiance to the victorious king, Inge II. Only then was their earldom officially re-endorsed. David enjoyed it only till 1214 when he died, still quite young. John remained sole earl for the next seventeen years. Although he administered his lands wisely, he became embroiled in a variety of plots, schemes and uprisings. In 1222 the men of Caithness rose against their tyrannical bishop, Adam, and burned him alive in his home. ALEXANDER II of Scotland severely fined John, even though he had not been directly involved. The Orkneys continued to be used as a base for pirate raids on Norway, and John found himself again summoned to Norway in 1224 for reprimand. He had to leave his son, Harald, as hostage - unfortunately he was drowned two years later, and was the last direct heir to the earldom. John also became involved in 1230 in an enterprise by king Haakon IV, to substantiate Norwegian suzerainty over the southern Hebrides, which led John to support OLAF II of Man and USPAK of the Isles against Alexander II of Scotland. John eventually became embroiled in a territorial dispute on his own doorstep. At the close of 1231 HARALD III's nephew, Snaekoll, laid claim to part of Orkney, and during negotiations at Thurso, Snaekoll killed John. John was probably aged about fifty. He was succeeded by a distant relative MAGNUS II. between 1206 and 1214.1

     Erlend II (?) Earl of Orkney married Thora (?)1
Erlend II (?) Earl of Orkney died in 1098 at Nidaros (Trondheim), Trøndelag, Trondheim Region, Norway.1
     GAV-25. He was Earl of Orkney: [Ashley, pp. 450-451] ERLEND II joint earl of Orkney c1060-98.
Paul was the elder son of THORFINN II and inherited the earldom with his brother ERLEND (II). It is possible that both were installed as earls of Caithness in 1057, prior to Thorfinn's death, suggesting that the earldom may have become regarded as a title for the heir(s) apparent. We do not know for certain when Paul was born, but it was probably about 1038. Already by that date Thorfinn was professing his Christian beliefs by naming his first-born Paul, unless he was not christened until Thorfinn's visit to the pope in 1048. When the brothers inherited the earldom they ruled it jointly and did not divide the lands or revenues between them. It seems they worked well together and generally agreed in all their actions. Soon after their father's death, Harald Hardraada, the king of Norway, arrived in the Orkneys prior to his invasion of England. He raised additional levies from amongst the earldom, which stretched as far as the Western Isles, and when he sailed for England in 1066, he was accompanied by both earls. Although Harald was defeated by HAROLD II of England at Stamford Bridge in September 1066, the two earls survived and returned to Orkney with Harald's son, Olaf, who remained with them during that winter before returning to establishing himself as king of Norway the following year. It is evident that they did not believe they had authority over all of the Western Isles, since they were not involved in the usurpation of Man by GODRED CROVAN in 1079. For most of their reign the two earls governed wisely and continued to develop and promote the bishopric of Orkney, but by the year 1090 or so a rift occurred between them over the ambitions of their respective sons, especially Paul's son HAAKON. Haakon was eventually banished from Orkney in 1093, and he stayed in Norway and Sweden for the next few years. It was he who encouraged Magnus III of Norway to visit his estates in the western seas and this planted the idea of Magnus installing his son, SIGURD (III), as king of the Orkneys, using the islands as an appanage for the heir to the throne. Magnus sailed to the Orkneys in the spring of 1098 and deposed the two earls, despite the care they had shown to his father Olaf. The earls were taken in captivity back to Norway where they both died within the year, Paul at Bergen and Erlend at Nidaros (Trondheim). between 1060 and 1098.1

     Saint Magnus (?) Earl of Orkney died on 16 April 1117.1
     ; patron saint of the Orkneys.1 He was Earl of Orkney: [Ashley, p. 452] MAGNUS (I) later SAINT MAGNUS, earl of Orkney 1108-16 April 1117. He was the son of ERLEND II and from his youth was in a succession dispute with his cousin HAAKON. When Orkney was taken over by Magnus III of Norway, Magnus became his page, and accompanied him on his raids to the Western Isles, Wales and Ireland. However his Christian upbringing came to the fore and Magnus refused to fight in the battle of Anglesey Sound, in June 1098. He escaped to Scotland and sought refuge first with King Edgar and then the earls of Moray. Whether his survival was known to Haakon is not clear, but once Haakon had been created earl in 1105, Magnus returned to the Orkneys to stake his claim. Neither cousin could agree so Magnus sailed to Norway to seek dispensation from the joint rulers. King Eystein II bestowed the title of earl on Magnus in 1108 and an entitlement to his father's share of the lands. Haakon accepted the arrangement and for a while the two cousins co-existed amicably, even working together to fight off a distant cousin with his own claim on the title. During this period both cousins governed with an iron hand, being fair in their judgments, but stern when necessary. They suffered no opposition in their lands. However, by 1116 the friction between the two became intolerable and conflict erupted. Haakon eventually imprisoned Magnus on the small island of Egilsay where he had him executed on 16 April 1117 (some records say 1116). A cult grew around Magnus, who was supposed to have prayed for the souls of his executioners as he was killed. Miracles were soon attributed to his relics, and a church was erected in his name at Kirkwall by RAGNALD III, where his relics were translated. He subsequently became the patron saint of the Orkneys. between 1108 and 1117.1

Invested as Jarl, given the name Ragnvald and ½ Orkney in 1129 by Sigurd I Jorsalafari King of Norway. The latter's successor, Magnus IV "the Blind", cancelled the gift in [1130]. Harald "Gilli" King of Norway invested him as Jarl of ½ Orkney in Spring 1135. Jarl Paul refused to give up any territory to him. In revenge Kali-Rognvald seized the Shetlands, but his men were defeated in Yell Sound 27 Jun 1135 by Jarl Paul. He seized the Shetlands again in 1137, and captured and deposed Paul, becoming Jarl of all Orkney and Caithness. He granted ½ Orkney in 1139 to Harald Maddadsson. Leaving Harald in charge of Orkney, he sailed for Palestine in 1151, returning in Dec 1155. He was murdered by Thorbiorn Clerk. Orkneyinga Saga records that “Earl Rognvald died on the fifth day after the Feast of the Assumption” and was buried “at St Magnus’ Cathedral”[944].

Rögnvald III Kali Kollrsonn the Saint (?) jarl of Orkney, mormaer of Caithness was also known as Saint Ronald of Orkney.5 Rögnvald III Kali Kollrsonn the Saint (?) jarl of Orkney, mormaer of Caithness was also known as Ragnald III (Kali) (?) Earl of Orkney.3 He was Earl of Orkney: RAGNALD III earl of Orkney 1137-20 August 1158. The grandson of ERLEND II and nephew of MAGNUS (I). His given name was Kali, and it seems that early in his life he had no pretensions to the earldom. He served as a merchant, and it was during one of his trading expeditions, at Grimsby, that he became acquainted with Gillechrist, the brother of Sigurd I of Norway (see Earl SIGURD III). He returned to Norway where he became an official at Sigurd's court. Sigurd created Kali earl of Orkney in 1129, granting him the lands that had been held by Magnus, though Kali still remained in Norway. In March 1130 Sigurd died. Kali supported Gillechrist in his claim on the throne but they were defeated by Magnus IV, who deprived Kali of his earldom. However five years later Gillechrist deposed Magnus and came to the throne as Harald IV. In 1135 he reinvested Kali with the earldom, and Kali requested his share of the lands and revenues from his cousin PAUL II. Paul refused and in 1136 Kali set sail with a fleet to regain his inheritance. He was defeated in his battles that year and he returned to Norway, but in the next spring he set off with a larger fleet and this time deposed Paul who was sent in exile to his sister's in Atholl. Kali thus inherited all of the earldom and took the name Ragnald.
The Sagas describe Kali as a well set man, fair-haired and strong-limbed. He was apparently extremely likeable, as he had more friends than most and always dealt fairly whenever he could. Thus when two years later he was prevailed upon by the bishop of Orkney to grant lands in Orkney to Paul's nephew, HARALD (II), he agreed readily and he brought Harald to the islands in 1140, gave him half the lands, and created him earl, though he was aged only six. Kali was always an adventurer at heart and in 1151 he decided to undertake a pilgrimage to Palestine after the failure of the Second Crusade. He left Harald in control, supported by Thorbiorn, who was the grandson of Frakok, the aunt of earl HARALD I. He set sail with a fleet of fifteen ships. His travels took him to Spain, where he had many adventures, to the Barbary Coast and eventually to Acre, which he does not seem to have reached until 1153. After a year he traveled to Constantinople, spending the winter with the Emperor Manuel I, before returning home across Europe, visiting Rome and Norway, and arriving in the Orkneys in December 1155. On his return he discovered that Harald was at war with ERLEND (II), who had been made earl of Caithness by MALCOLM IV of Scotland. Kali initially supported Erlend, but afterwards Kali changed allegiance to Harald and together they defeated Erlend, who was killed in the battle. During this period Kali banished Thorbiorn who had murdered one of Kali's bodyguard, and Thorbiorn achieved his revenge two years later when he murdered Kali in Caithness. between 1137 and 1158.3

     ; Per Med Lands:
     "GILLES [I] de Trazegnies ([before 1135?]-13 Jul [1161/62], bur Herlaimont). The chronology of Gilles’s descendants suggests that he was probably not born much later than [1135]. The [1205] Chronicle of Liessies abbey records that Baudouin IV Comte de Hainaut was guardian of “tres Giliones pueros nobiles, quorum patres obierant...jure consanguinitatis, unum de Cimasiis, alium de Businiis, tertium de Transiniis” (“trois Gillion, enfants nobles, dont les pères étaient morts...de Chimay...de Bousignies [Bouchain] et...de Trazegnies”), noting that guardianship of the last named was also claimed by “Walterus de Avesnis, quia jure propinquitatis erat proprior” (“Gautier d’Avesnes avec lequel il était plus proche parent qu’avec le comte”), and in another passage that Gilles [de Trazegnies] “pro qua factione patris eius Bacconis occisi, adversus Ebalum de Gociliis viriliter exercuit” (“combattit vaillamment contre Ebale de Gosselies pour venger la mort de son père qui avait été tué”) [see above the record of the death in battle of the predecessor of Gilles [I]][2238]. As noted above, the precise family relationships between Gilles [I] and Gauthier [I] d’Oisy Seigneur d’Avesnes and with Baudouin IV Comte de Hainaut have not been ascertained. Consistent with Gilles’s father being killed in 1146, Gilles’s estimated birth date seems confirmed by the 1163 charter quoted below which records him as “parvulum” when his father died. Straten Ponthoz records that Gilles [I] de Trazegnies sold Ath in 1136[2239], while the Marquis de Trazegnies more reasonably suggests that the sale (to Baudouin IV Comte de Hainaut) took place “au milieu du siècle (1148 ou 1155 selon les interprétations...)”[2240]. The primary source which confirms this sale has not been found nor any document which indicates how the Trazegnies family acquired an interest in Ath: as the heiress of Ath married Arnoul de Hainaut, ancestor of the seigneurs du Rœulx (see elsewhere in the present document), this could help explain why the comte de Hainaut claimed guardianship of Gilles [I] during his minority. Seigneur de Trazegnies: by charter dated 1155, Henri Bishop of Liège notified that “Gilo dominus castri...Trasineheis” donated land “in loco...Herlanmoht”, first donated by “patre Hostone”, to Floreffe, and confirmed other specified donations to Floreffe[2241]. Seigneur de Silly: Gilles is first named seigneur de Silly in a charter dated 1156[2242]. Smets, editor of the Cambron cartulary, records the foundation of Cambron Notre-Dame by “Anselme de Trazignies seigneur de Péronne-lès-Binche, chanoine et trésorier du chapitre de Soignies” and the protests made by “son frère Gilles seigneur de Silly” to family property being used for this purpose[2243]. Baudouin IV Comte de Hainaut confirmed donations to Cambron made by “Anselmus de Perona nobilis clericus”, which were challenged by “Egidius de Silli” who later donated property in compensation, by charter dated 1156[2244]. Gilles’s connection with Blicquy is indicated by the following document: “Egidius de Belchi” [Gilles [I] de Trazegnies?] donated property “apud Helsbecam...pasturam que jacet inter Helbecam et Silgi” to Eename by charter dated 1158[2245]. Nicolas Bishop of Cambrai confirmed that “domina Ysabealdis de Stenkerca et filius eius Ingelbertus”, with the consent of “uxore eiusdem Ingelberti...prebentibus Hugone de Edengem et filii eius”, donated land and rights “infra nemus de Geterlau” to Cambron, noting that “Egidius de Trazinies” had rights in the same property which he also donated with the consent of “Hugone et filiis eius”, by charter dated 1161[2246]. The precise relationship between the Enghien and Trazegnies families has not been traced. The Miracula sancti Cornelii record “dominus Aegidius de Trasenis” invading Nivelles abbey, followed by the siege of Trazegnies during which Gilles was killed[2247]. Plumet dates his death to [1161/62][2248]. The necrology of Floreffe records the death "III Id Jul" of "Gilonis militis de Trasignies" and his donations of “ecclesiam de Trasigniez et decimam inter calciatam viam et Pietonem”[2249]. The following documents were dated after Gilles [I] died. By charter dated 1163, Henri Bishop of Liège notified that [Gilles’s parents] “Hosto Trasiniensis dominus ac eius uxor Heluidis” had donated “quendam desertum...Herlaimont...” to Floreffe, that when they died they left “heredum parvulum Gilonem” who (“ipse vero miles...ipsum Gilonem”) later appropriated “decimam” from Floreffe but then confirmed the donation for “patris et matris sue anime”, the subsequent attack on “villam de Fraxinis” [Frasnes] by “Walterus de Fontanes...et auxilio habens ipsum Gilonem” for which the latter was excommunicated, his death and the monks of Frasnes refusing to bury him, “pater uxoris ipsius Gilonis Henricus et Euerardus avunculus eius” wanting to assure his decent burial, “uxor eiusdem Gilonis” donated “altare de Trasineius” to Floreffe, the charter witnessed by “Henricus de Laudines Euverardus de Roeuia et filius eius Walterus et al nepos eius Symon de Secelllia Henricus de Birbais Cono de Alta ripa Wido de Fontibus et filii eius Walterus Franco de Fontibus et frater eius Gislebertus Walcherus de Sillei Henricus et frater eius Hywenus de Heruethees Robertus de Carniris et filii eius Robertus Balduinus de Montibus Henricus de Nathe”[2250]. Pope Alexander III confirmed the privileges of Cambron, recording its foundation by “Anselmus de Berona clericus” and confirming donations including “allodium et quicquid Egidius de Trazinies in eodem loco de Camberona habebat”, by bull dated 28 Nov 1172[2251]. Pierre Bishop-elect of Cambrai confirmed that “Egidium de Trasignies” had “per manum domni Nicholai pie memorie predecessoris nostri et Balduini Hainoniensis comitis” donated land and rights “in nemore de Geterlau” to Cambron, and that “posteaquam idem Egidius factus est de medio [is this a euphemism to indicate that he was set aside or died?], filius eius Hosto” approved his father’s donation with the approval of “Sigeri fratris sui”, by charter dated 1173[2252]. Gilles is named in the 4 Apr 1184 and 1188 charters of his son Oste [II], the second of which records his place of burial.
     "m GERBERGE [Damisia = Demoiselle?], daughter of HENRI de Landines [Landen] & his wife [--- de Rèves?] (-after 1188). “Osto miles de Trasingeis” donated various decima to Floreffe, in the same way as “avus meus Hosto et pater meus Egidius”, by charter dated 4 Apr 1184, witnessed by “mater mea Damisia, Sigerus frater meus, Richardus et Gerardus de Rohenia cognati mei, Wilhelmus de Hutange, Heinricus de Birbais...”[2253]. “Godefridus...dux Lovaniensis et...Heinricus comes Namurcensis et...Balduinus comes Hainacensis” confirmed the donation of various decima to Floreffe made by “dominus Hosto de Trazingeis” with the consent of “uxoris sue Mathildis et primogeniti sui Egidii et reliquorum filiorum ac filiarum suarum”, including “tertiam apud Herlaimont” where “domini Egidii patris ipsius” was buried, by charter dated 1188, in the presence of “Eustachius de Ruez, Richaldus de Roenia...Gebergis mater eiusdem Hostonis...”[2254]. Her parentage is confirmed by the following document: by charter dated 1163, Henri Bishop of Liège notified that [her husband’s parents] “Hosto Trasiniensis dominus ac eius uxor Heluidis” had donated “quendam desertum...Herlaimont...” to Floreffe, that when they died they left “heredum parvulum Gilonem” who (“ipse vero miles...ipsum Gilonem”) later appropriated “decimam” from Floreffe but then confirmed the donation for “patris et matris sue anime”, “uxor eiusdem Gilonis” donating “altare de Trasineius” to Floreffe, after the suggestion of “pater uxoris ipsius Gilonis Henricus et Euerardus avunculus eius” who wanted to assure her husband’s decent burial, the charter witnessed by “Henricus de Laudines Euverardus de Roeuia et filius eius Walterus et al nepos eius Symon de Secelllia...”[2255]. It is suggested that “Euerardus avunculus eius [...Euerardus de Roeuia]” was Gerberge’s maternal uncle: this is consistent with “avunculus” being interpreted in its strict sense, but also because it is difficult to understand the need for his presence in the document if he had been the brother of Gerberge’s father (who would presumably have represented the family interests by himself). Straten Ponthoz, discussing the question of her family origin, notes that her husband Gilles [I] is named in 1183 as “frère - utérin sans doute - de Godefroid châtelain de Bruxelles” [no source cited][2256]. As noted above, the chronology indicates that Gilles [I] and Godefroy are unlikely to have shared the same mother. Another possibility is that “frère” (assuming that Straten Ponthoz’s report about the 1183 charter is correct) indicated Gilles [I]’s brother-in-law. That could indicate either (1) that Godefroy’s wife was the sister of Gilles [I] (see below) or (2) that Gilles [I]’s wife was Godefroy’s sister."
