Chapter 1.    BLOIS

 

 

A.      COMTES de BLOIS [830]-early 10th CENTURY

 

 

The county of Blois was one of the few counties whose counts can be identified from the reign of Emperor Louis I.  From the early 10th to the early 13th centuries, it became hereditary within the same family.  In the mid-10th century, this family expanded its territories to include the counties of Tours, Chartres and Châteaudun.  It acquired Sancerre in the early 11th century, although this was split off in 1152 to provide an appanage for a junior branch of the family.  The acquisition by the counts of Blois of the county of Troyes, some time in the 1020s, represented the start of a shift in their centre of activities towards the area of Champagne.  In 1231, the county of Blois was inherited by the Seigneurs de Châtillon-sur-Marne, who were already counts of Saint-Pol in northern France. 

 

Guillaume is the first recorded comte de Blois, probably being appointed to the county in [830].  After his death in 834, no record has been found which indicates who succeeded him.  Merlet suggests that Robert "le Fort" was Comte de Blois in about [865][1].  He relies on a charter dated May 865 under which "Le comte Robert" donated "certains biens…situés dans le comté de Blois, dans la viguerie d’Averdon au village dit Gabrium et faisant partie du domaine de Saint-Lubin" to Actard Bishop of Nantes in exchange for other property "situés au même lieu et dépendant aussi du domaine de Saint-Lubin"[2].  However, another possibility is that Robert’s county was the "march of Anjou" to which he had been appointed count some years before (see the document FRANCE CAPETIAN KINGS). 

 

 

1.         GUILLAUME, son of --- ([772/90]-killed in battle [Touraine] Jun 834)His birth date is estimated on the assumption that he was younger than his brother Eudes, which is suggested by the order in which their names appear when named together in primary sources.  The Annales Bertiniani record that "Odo et Willelmus frater eius" were among those killed fighting "Lantbertum et Matfridem" in 834[3]Comte de Blois et Comte de Châteaudun: Merlet cites a charter of Emperor Louis I "le Pieux" dated 19 Nov 832 which confirms that these two territories were administered together at the time, referring to property "quæ est in pago Blisense vel Dunense"[4].  Merlet suggests that, in addition to Blois and Châteaudun, Guillaume administered Chartres as, from the 10th century, all three territories were administered by the same comte and he supposes that the same arrangement already existed in the 9th century (although no primary source exists which confirms this supposition)[5].  Constable: the Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "in Frantiam Eggebardus comes et Willelmus comes stabuli" in the context of events in 833[6].  A poem by Gosbert is addressed to "Guillelmum Blesensium comitem" refers to him as "Francigenum primo proavis abavisque peralto"[7].  The Annales Bertiniani record that "Odo et Willelmus frater eius" were among those killed fighting "Lantbertum et Matfridem" in 834[8]Merlet suggests that the battle took place in Touraine[9].  The Chronica Rainaldi records that "Odo comes Aurelianensium, Willelmus frater eius comes Blesensium, Guido comes Cenomanensium" died in battle fighting "Lambertum" in 835[10]It is more likely that this battle took place in 834, assuming that it is correct that Count Lantbert was established in Italy later that year. 

 

2.         EUDES [Odo] (-1 Aug 871).  René Merlet suggests that Eudes was the brother of Robert "le Fort", ancestor of the Capetian dynasty, tracing what appears to be the parallel development of their careers[11]Comte de Châteaudun, later Comte de Troyes.  852/59 and 866/70.  "Karolus…rex" authorised "Dodo…Andecavorum episcopus" and "Odo comes" to exchange land at Angers by charter dated 3 Jul 851[12].  A document issued by Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks dated Nov 853 names "Wenilo episcopus, Odo et Donatus" as missi in "pago Senonico, Trecasino, Wasteniso, Miliduniso, Morviso, Proviniso, et ini tribus Arcisisis et in duobus Brionensis"[13].  "Karolus…rex" named "Odo…comes [et] predecessoris sui Aledramni…comitis ex comitatu Tricasino" in a charter dated 25 Apr 854 or 855 relating to the abbey of Montéramey[14]A document of Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks dated 21 Mar 858 is subscribed by "Hungarius, Engilramnus, Isembardus, Odo, Osbertus, Ratbodus, Hunfridus, Odalricus, Rhodulfus, Engilschalcus, Herluinus, Hitto"[15]Comte de BloisThe Annales Fuldenses name "Adalhartus abbas et Oto comes" as missi "ab occidente" in Jul 858[16], the editor of the compilation suggesting that "Oto" was "comes Blesensis"[17]

 

 

1.         --- (-killed in battle [893])Comte de Blois.  Richer records that the previous holder of Blois had been killed fighting “the pirates” (“in bello pyratico”) before King Eudes appointed Ingo as his successor, dated to [893][18].  No indication has been found of his name.  It is not known whether he was appointed comte de Blois immediately after the death of Comte Eudes in 871 or whether there were other individuals who held the castle in the intervening period.  [m [as her first husband,] ---, daughter of --- (-after [895]).  She may have married secondly ([893]) Ingo, son of ---.  As discussed below under Ingo Comte de Blois, one possible interpretation of a passage in Richer is the Ingo married his predecessor’s widow.] 

 

 

1.         INGO (-[895])Comte de Blois.  Richer records that King Eudes granted “castrum...Blesum” to “Ingonem” after the holder of the castle had been killed fighting “the pirates” (“in bello pyratico”), dated to [893], but that he died two years later from infected wounds[19]m [as her second husband,] ---, [widow of ---,], daughter of --- (-after [895]).  The name of Ingo’s wife is not known.  Richer records that, after granted him the castle of Blois, King Eudes arranged the marriage of Ingo to “eius quoque uxorem derelictam[20].  In this passage, it is unclear to whom “eius” was intended to refer.  It seems that there are two possibilities.  Firstly, it could relate to the widow of the previous holder of the castle whose death is recorded in the previous sentence.  In that case “derelicto” would have been used in the sense of widow “left” as a result of the death of her husband.  Secondly, it could refer to the king himself, in which case “derelicto” would have been used in the sense of repudiated.  The first case appears more likely as primary sources name Theoderada as the wife of King Eudes and record her second marriage to Otto after the death of the king (see the document FRANCE, CAPETIAN KINGS).  Ingo & his wife had one child: 

a)         GERLO ([894/95]-).  Richer records the death of “Ingonem” leaving “Gerlonem filium parvum” who inherited Blois under the joint guardianship of his mother and of another tutor appointed by the king[21]Comte de Blois.  Gerlo presumably died soon afterwards if it is correct, as shown below, that Robert was Comte de Blois in 902. 

 

 

1.         ROBERT (-after Nov 902)Comte de BloisComte de Tours.  "Roberti comitis" subscribed the charter dated Nov 902 under which "Warnegaudi vicecomitis et uxoris eius Helenæ" donated property[22]

 

 

 

B.      COMTES de BLOIS [943]-1218

 

 

1.         THIBAUT [Tetbald] [I] "l'Ancien", son of --- (-[944], bur Tours Saint-Martin).  [Comte de Chartres: Guillaume de Jumièges describes how "Tetboldus comes" threatened “Hastingus” into selling “Carnotenam urbem” to him, after which Hasting became a pilgrim and disappeared (“peregre profectus disparuit”)[23], maybe dated to [900], an earlier passage recording that Hasting held Chartres presumably from “Rainaldus totius Franciæ dux” who had sent him to negotiate unsuccessfully with Rollo.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "Hastingo" sold "civitate Carnoto" to "Turonensi comiti Theobaldo" in 904[24].  The accuracy of these two reports is uncertain as it is unclear whether Hasting was ever comte de Chartres.]  Vicomte de Tours: "Domni Fulconis Andecavorum comitis, Tedbaldi Turonorum vicecomitis" subscribed the charter dated 30 Oct 909 under which the testamentary executors of "domni Gauzuini" donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours[25].  "…Tetbaldi vicecomitis…" subscribed the charter of "Hugo rector abbatiæ sancti Martini" relating to Tours Saint-Martin dated 931[26]The identity of the husband of Richilde, and father of Thibaut [II] and Richard, is confirmed by the charter dated to [944] under which "le comte Thibault père de Thibault" relinquished rights relating to "les terres de Vancé, de Joué, de Martigny et de Berthenay" to Tours Saint-Martin and paid for his future burial in the abbey[27]m firstly ---.  The primary source which confirms this first marriage has not been identified.  It is likely that the only indication is provided by the charter, dated to [980], under which Ledgardis comitissa necnon Hugo episcopus et filius meus et item filius meus Odo comes” donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours, for the souls of “Theobaldi comitis quondam senioris mei…Richildis quondam sanctimonialis, eiusque filii Richardi episcopi” (referring to “dicti comitis et fratris sui Theobaldi”, in relation to Bishop Richard)[28].  This charter confirms that Richildis was the mother of Richard and that Richard was the brother of Thibaut [II].  However, the absence of a phrase in the text such as “matris sui” linking “Richildis” to “Theobaldi comitis” suggests that she was not his mother and that therefore the brothers were born from different marriages of the same father.  m secondly RICHILDIS, daughter of ---.  Richildis is named as second wife of Thibaut in Europäische Stammtafeln[29] but the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified.  The charter, dated to [980], under which Ledgardis comitissa necnon Hugo episcopus et filius meus et item filius meus Odo comes” donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours, for the souls of “Theobaldi comitis quondam senioris mei…Richildis quondam sanctimonialis, eiusque filii Richardi episcopi” (referring to “dicti comitis et fratris sui Theobaldi”, in relation to Bishop Richard)[30] confirms that Richildis was the mother of Richard and that Richard was the brother of Thibaut.  However, it provides no indication of the name of their father and therefore of Richildis’s husband.  Comte Thibaut & his [first] wife had one child:

a)         THIBAUT [II] ([910]-16 Jan [975/77])"Le comte Thibault père de Thibault" relinquished rights relating to "les terres de Vancé, de Joué, de Martigny et de Berthenay" to Tours Saint-Martin and paid for his future burial in the abbey by charter dated to [944][31]He succeeded [his father] in [944] as THIBAUT I "le Tricheur" Comte de Blois, Vicomte de Tours.

Comte Thibaut & his second wife had two children:

b)         RICHARD (-969)Ledgardis comitissa necnon Hugo episcopus et filius meus et item filius meus Odo comes” donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours, for the souls of “Theobaldi comitis quondam senioris mei…Richildis quondam sanctimonialis, eiusque filii Richardi episcopi” (referring to “dicti comitis et fratris sui Theobaldi”, in relation to Bishop Richard), by charter dated to [980][32].  This confirms that Richildis was the mother of Richard and that Richard was the brother of Thibaut.  However, the absence of a phrase in the text such as “matris sui” linking “Richildis” to “Theobaldi comitis” suggests that she was not his mother and that therefore the brothers were born from different marriages of the same father.  Archbishop of Bourges 956/57. 

c)         daughter The Chronicle of Nantes records the marriage of "Alanus dux" and "Theobaldum comitem Blesensem…sorore sua"[33].  Given the date of her marriage, and assuming that the estimated birth date of her brother Thibaut [II] is correct as shown above, it is probable that this daughter was born from her father's supposed second marriage.  The Chronicle of Nantes records the marriage of "Theobaldus comes Blesensis…sororem suam relictam Alani Barbætortæ ducis" and "Fulconi comiti Andegavensi"[34]m firstly (before [949/51]) as his second wife, ALAIN II Duke of Brittany, son of MATHEDOI [Matuedo] Comte de Poher & his wife --- de Bretagne (in Brittany [before 919]-952).  m secondly (after 952) as his second wife, FOULQUES II Comte d'Anjou, son of FOULQUES I "le Roux" Comte d'Anjou & his wife Roscille de "Loches" ([920]-11 Nov 958). 

 

 

THIBAUT [II] de Blois, son of THIBAUT [I] "l'Ancien" Vicomte de Tours & his first wife --- ([910]-16 Jan [975/77])"Le comte Thibault père de Thibault" relinquished rights relating to "les terres de Vancé, de Joué, de Martigny et de Berthenay" to Tours Saint-Martin and paid for his future burial in the abbey by charter dated to [944][35].  “Ledgardis comitissa necnon Hugo episcopus et filius meus et item filius meus Odo comes” donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours, for the souls of “Theobaldi comitis quondam senioris mei…Richildis quondam sanctimonialis, eiusque filii Richardi episcopi” (referring to “dicti comitis et fratris sui Theobaldi”, in relation to Bishop Richard), by charter dated to [980][36].  This confirms that Richildis was the mother of Richard and that Richard was the brother of Thibaut.  However, the absence of a phrase in the text such as “matris sui” linking “Richildis” to “Theobaldi comitis” suggests that she was his mother and that therefore the brothers were born from different marriages of the same father.  He succeeded [his father] in [944] as THIBAUT I "le Tricheur" Comte de Blois, Vicomte de Tours.  He dominated Brittany as guardian of his nephew Drogo, after the death of his brother-in-law Alain II Duke of Brittany in 952[37].  The Gesta Normannorum records that he plotted against Richard I Comte [de Normandie], who defeated Thibaut’s forces in [955] after the French captured Evreux[38].  "Domnus Tetbaldus comes Turonis" withdrew his claims to a serf in favour of the monks of Saint-Martin de Tours by charter dated 957, signed by "domni Tetbaldi comitis, Tetbaldi filii ipsius…Alberici Aurelianensium vicecomitis…"[39].  "Teutbaldi comitis, Teutbaldi junioris, Gausfredi comitis, Hugonis comitis Cenomannorum…" subscribed the charter dated Sep 960 under which "Aremburgis" donated property to Saint-Florent de Saumur[40].  He gained control of the counties of Chartres and Châteaudun in [960], and became the vassal of Lothaire King of the West Franks in 963.  He was excommunicated by Odalric Archbishop of Reims in 964 for taking Coucy and other estates from the archbishopric[41].  Seigneur de Chino, de Saumur et de Baugency.  A charter dated May 974 records a donation by "comes Teutbaldus" to Saint-Florent de Saumur[42]

a)         [ROBERT (-[989/95]).  "Odonis comitis, Rotberti filii eius, Tetbaldi filius eius, Odonis alterius filius, Hugonis vicecomitis Castridunensis, Raherii de Montigniaco" subscribed the charter dated 989 under which "Robert Vicomte de Blois" donated property to the abbey of Evron[84]Lex suggests that this document was a 12th century falsification and that this supposed eldest son Robert did not exist[85].  This position is supported by the charter dated to [986] under which “Odo comes” restored “villam...Culturas” to Marmoutier, for the souls of “...domini Hugonis archiepiscopi, cujus ibi corpus...jacet”, subscribed by “Berte comitissæ uxoris eius, majoris filii eius Teutboldi, filii eius Odonis adhuc in cunabulo[86].  An alternative explanation is that "Rotberti filii eius" was the son of the donor, not of "Odonis comitis" whose name immediately precedes his.

b)         THIBAUT de Blois ([979/81]-11 Jul 1004, bur Chartres Saint-Père).  “Odo comes” restored “villam...Culturas” to Marmoutier, for the souls of “...domini Hugonis archiepiscopi, cujus ibi corpus...jacet”, by charter dated to [986], subscribed by “Berte comitissæ uxoris eius, majoris filii eius Teutboldi, filii eius Odonis adhuc in cunabulo[87]"Odonis comitis, Rotberti filii eius, Tetbaldi filius eius, Odonis alterius filius, Hugonis vicecomitis Castridunensis, Raherii de Montigniaco" subscribed the charter dated 989 under which "Robert Vicomte de Blois" donated property to the abbey of Evron[88]He succeeded his father in 995 as THIBAUT II Comte de BloisA charter dated 996 records the confirmation by "comitissæ Berthæ" of the donation by "Odo comes" of property for the construction of the abbey of Bourgeuil, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Teobaldi…atque Odonis"[89].  He resigned in favour of his younger brother and became a priest.  “Berta...regina cum filiis meis Tetbaldo...episcopo nec non Odoni comitis” donated tonlieu over boats at Blois to Marmoutier by undated charter[90].  His bishopric has not yet been identified.  A charter dated to before 1024 records that "comes Tedbaldus" was buried "in capitulo Sancti Petri" at the feet of "fratris sui Teoderici"[91]

EUDES de Blois, son of EUDES I Comte de Blois & his wife Berthe de Bourgogne [Welf] ([982/83]-killed in battle Commercy 15 Nov 1037, bur Tours, Abbaye de Saint-Martin, Marmoutier).  “Odo comes” restored “villam...Culturas” to Marmoutier, for the souls of “...domini Hugonis archiepiscopi, cujus ibi corpus...jacet”, by charter dated to [986], subscribed by “Berte comitissæ uxoris eius, majoris filii eius Teutboldi, filii eius Odonis adhuc in cunabulo[108]"Odonis comitis, Rotberti filii eius, Tetbaldi filius eius, Odonis alterius filius, Hugonis vicecomitis Castridunensis, Raherii de Montigniaco" subscribed the charter dated 989 under which "Robert Vicomte de Blois" donated property to the abbey of Evron[109].  A charter dated 996 records the confirmation by "comitissæ Berthæ" of the donation by "Odo comes" of property for the construction of the abbey of Bourgeuil, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Teobaldi…atque Odonis"[110].  He succeeded his brother in [1004] as EUDES II Comte de Blois, de Chartres, de Châteaudun et de Tours.  “Berta...regina cum filiis meis Tetbaldo...episcopo nec non Odoni comitis” donated tonlieu over boats at Blois to Marmoutier by undated charter[111]"Bertæ reginæ, Odonis comitis filii eius…" subscribed the charter dated 1004 under which "Gislebertus prepositus" recorded a donation[112]Rodulfus Glaber records that "secundus Odo filius…prioris Odonis" seized all the estates of "Stephanus comes Trecorum et Meldorum, Heriberti filius" after the latter died without an heir[113].  Comte de Sancerre, Seigneur de Chinon et de Saumur.  Guillaume de Jumièges records that Comte Eudes refused to return the castle of Dreux to Richard II Duke of Normandy after the death of his first wife[114]Rodulfus Glaber refers to the "perpetual quarrels and frequent wars" between "secundus Odo filius…prioris Odonis" and Foulques III Comte d'Anjou[115]"Odonis…comitis" [Eudes II Comte de Blois] donated part of the county of Beauvais to "Rogerius sanctæ Belvacensis sedis…pontifex", recorded in the charter dated 1015, confirmed by Robert II King of France[116].  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records that, after fleeing Sens in 1016, Renaud [II] Comte de Sens sought refuge with “Odonem Comitem” (presumably Eudes II Comte de Blois) with whom he built “castrum Monsteriolum…super Sequanæ fluvium” (Montereau)[117].  "Odo comes filius [Odonis comitis]" confirmed a donation of his father by charter dated to [1032/37], subscribed by "Tetbaldi filii eius, matris eius Ermengardis…Hervei vicecomitis"[118]Rodulfus Glauber records the challenge by "Odo natus ex filia Chuonradi regis Austrasiorum, Berta nomine" to the accession by Emperor Konrad II to the kingdom of Burgundy after the death of his maternal uncle Rudolf III King of Burgundy[119]Herimannus names "Odo sororis eiusdem [=Roudolfus, ignavus Burgundiæ regulus] filium, princeps Gallicæ Campaniæ" when recording his challenge to the succession of Emperor Konrad II to the kingdom of Burgundy in 1032[120]After the emperor agreed an alliance with Henri I King of France, comte Eudes besieged Toul but was forced to retreat by the emperor who arrived in the town 20 Aug 1033.  In Spring 1034, he ravaged the Meuse valley.  Eudes captured Bar 14 Nov 1037, intending to continue to Aix-la-Chapelle where he would declare himself emperor.  The Annales Sangallenses record the battle between "Gozelinum et Uotonem comittibus" in 1037 in which Comte Eudes was defeated and killed[121].  His forces were defeated at Commercy where Comte Eudes was killed[122].  Rodolfus Glaber records his place of burial[123]The necrology of Saint-Cloud records the death "XII Kal Dec" of "Odo palacii comes"[124].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "XVII Kal Dec" of "Odo palatii comes"[125]The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "XVII Kal Dec" of "Odo, Manasses, Euzuinus, Dudo comites ante Bar castrum prelio interempti"[126]

m firstly ([1003/04]) MATHILDE de Normandie, daughter of RICHARD I "Sans-peur" Comte [de Normandie] & his second wife Gunnora --- (-[1005]).  Guillaume of Jumièges names “Emma...secunda Hadvis...tertia Mathildis” as the three daughters of Richard and his wife “Gunnor ex nobilissima Danorum prosapia ortam”, adding that Mathilde married “Odoni comiti” by whom she was childless, a later passage stating that her dowry was “medietatem Dorcasini castri[127].  The same source recounts that this provided the basis for the dispute between Comte Eudes and Duke Richard which escalated into the construction of the château de Tillières (“castrum Tegulense”) {Verneuil, Eure} and Eudes's defeat while attempting to capture it. 

m secondly (1005) ERMENGARDE d'Auvergne, daughter of [GUILLAUME [IV] Comte d'Auvergne & his wife Humberge de Brioude] (11 or 12 Mar --- -after 1042).  The Flandria Generosa names "altera Ermengardis comitissa" as daughter of "Ermengardis comitissa Arvenensis", and mother of "Berta comitissa [=de Blois]", when outlining the basis for the consanguinity between Baudouin VII Count of Flanders and [Hawise] de Bretagne, which provided the grounds for the couple's separation[128].  As discussed fully in the document AUVERGNE, less chronological difficulties result if Ermengarde was in fact the daughter of Guillaume [IV] Comte d'Auvergne and his wife Humberge, although this is not without doubt.  The date of Ermengarde's marriage is fixed by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names "comitissam Turonensem Ermengardem" as wife of "Odonem Campaniensem comitem" when recording in 1005 their joint restoration of "Turonis maioris monasterii"[129].  "Odonis comitis, Ermengardis uxoris eius, Bertæ reginæ…" subscribed the charter dated after 1005 under which "comitem Odonem" donated property "in comitatu Dunensi…Boscus Medius" to "Sancti Petri"[130].  The necrology of Saint-Père-en-Vallée records the death "IV Id Mar" of "Ermengardis comitissa"[131].  The necrology of Pontlevoy records the death "V Id Mar" of "Ermengardis comitissa"[132]

Melanii"[142].  The Chronicon Ruyensis Cœnobii records the death in 1085 of "Berthæ comitissæ"[143].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "II Id Apr" of "Berta comitissa"[144]The Chronicon Kemperlegiensis records the death "Kal Jun" in 1085 of "Bertha Comitissa Britanniæ, mater Conani Ducis, soror Fulconis"[145], although no other record has been found which confirms that Berthe had a brother named Foulques.  m firstly (1018) ALAIN III Duke of Brittany, son of GEOFFROY I Duke of Brittany & his wife Havise de Normandie ([997]-poisoned 1 Oct 1040)m secondly (after 14 May 1046) HUGUES [IV] Comte du Maine, son of HERBERT [I] "Eveille-chien" Comte du Maine & his wife --- (-26 Mar 1051). 

 

 

THIBAUT de Blois, son of EUDES II Comte de Blois & his second wife Ermengarde d'Auvergne ([1010]-29/30 Sep 1089, bur Epernay)The Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum names "Tetbaudus et Stephanus" as the two sons of Comte Eudes, specifying that Thibaut succeeded in "Carnotensem et Turonensem"[146].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Theobaldi filii Odonis Campaniensis" when recording that he lost Tours in 1041[147].  "Odo comes filius [Odonis comitis]" confirmed a donation of his father by charter dated to [1032/37], subscribed by "Tetbaldi filii eius, matris eius Ermengardis…Hervei vicecomitis"[148]He succeeded his father in 1037 as THIBAUT III Comte de Blois, de Chartres, de Châteaudun, de Meaux, de Sancerre et de Troyes.  He lost Beauvais some time after 1037.  Guillaume de Jumièges records that "comitem Tetbaldum" was captured by Geoffroy Comte d'Anjou who extorted the town of Tours from him by force[149]The Chronica Rainaldi records that "Tetbaldus, filius Odonis comitis" was captured by "Goffrido comite Andecavorum" in 1044 after which the city of Tours surrendered[150]Comte de Bar-sur-Aube, presumably after 1077, maybe de iure uxoris.  The necrology of Saint-Père-en-Vallée records the death "II Kal Oct" of "Tebaldus comes Carnotensium"[151]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "comes Theobaldus [filius Odonis]" was buried "apud Spernacum"[152]

m firstly (repudiated 1048) as her first husband, GERSENDE du Maine, daughter of HERIBERT [I] "Euigilans Canis/Eveille-chien" Comte du Maine & his wife ---([1025/35]-).  The Actus pontificum Cenomannis records that "Atho marchisius" left Maine in the hands of "Gaufridi de Meduana", also naming "uxor eiusdem marchisii Garcendis…filia Herberti Cenomannorum…comitis…Evigila Canem" and specifying that she had married firstly "Theobaldo duci Campanie" and that he had repudiated her[153].  She married secondly as his second wife, Alberto Azzo II d'EsteOrderic Vitalis records that "Hugo filius Herberti" and his wife “Bertam ipsius relictam, Tedbaldi Blesensium comitis sororem” had “filium...Herbertum et tres filias”, of whom one married “Azsoni marchiso Liguriæ” (which would be difficult to sustain chronologically and confuses the children of Hugues [IV] Comte du Maine with his sisters)[154]

[m secondly ([1050/55]) GUNDRADA, daughter of --- (-[1055/60]).  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 1089 under which Stephanus comes” donated property to the abbey of Pontlevoy, for the souls of “Theobaldi comitis patris mei et matris meæ Gundreæ…[155].  It is assumed that she died soon after giving birth to her son.  Another possibility is that “Gundreæ” in this charter is in fact a distorted transcription of “Gersendæ”, the name of Thibaut’s known first wife.  This cannot be verified unless another primary source emerges which names the mother of Comte Etienne.] 

m [secondly/thirdly] (before 1061) ADELA [Alix], daughter of --- (-12 May [1093/1100], bur Saint-Faron).  "Adeladis comitisse" subscribed the donation to Cluny by "Rotrocus castri Mauritanie comes atque Dunensis castri vicecomes" dated 11 Jan 1078, immediately after "Tetbaldi comitis, Stephani comitis"[156], it being assumed that she was the wife of the former not the latter.  Her parentage is uncertain.  According to the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, "Alaydis soror sancti Symonis" married "comiti Campanie Theobaldo", although Alberic confuses her with her supposed niece Adelais, daughter of Héribert [IV] Comte de Vermandois, saying that she married "Hugoni fratri regis Philippi" after the death of her husband[157].  If Alberic is correct, the [second/third] wife of Comte Thibaut III was Adela [Alix] de Valois, daughter of Raoul [III] de Crépy Comte du Vexin et de Valois & his first wife Aelis de Bar-sur-Aube.  The difficulty with Alberic’s statement is an undated charter, quoted by Acta Sanctorum, under which "Rodulfus comes" [identified as Comte Raoul [III]] donated property to Saint-Rémy, confirmed by "Symonem filium meum, duos quoque generos meos, quos de filiabus meis habeo, id est Heribertum comitem et juvenem…Bartholomeum"[158].  If the wife of Thibaut III Comte de Blois had been another daughter of Comte Raoul [III], it is unclear why Thibaut would have been omitted from this document which appears to indicate clearly that Raoul had only two sons-in-law.  Nevertheless, a close relationship with the family of the comtes de Valois is indicated by a charter dated to [1077/81] under which "Teobaudus comes palatinus…cum mulierum Adelaide" donated property to Montiérender, naming "bone memorie predecessorum…patris sui Odonis comitis et Heriberto cognomento senioris…comes Rodulfus predecessor suus et propinquus"[159], the latter presumably referring to Comte Raoul [III].  In addition, Comte Thibaut acquired the county of Bar-sur-Aube.  If he had not been Raoul’s son-in-law, the basis for this acquisition is unclear.  The necrology of Saint-Loup, Troyes records the death "XII Mai" of "Aalais uxor Theobaudi comitis Campaniæ" and her burial "in monasterio Sancti Faronis"[160]

Comte Thibaut III & his [second] wife had one child: 

1.         ETIENNE [Henri] de Blois (-killed in battle Ramleh 19 May 1102)The Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum names (in order) "Stephanus et Hugo" as sons of "comes Tetbaudus", specifying that Etienne "factus est Blesensium Carnotensium atque Meldensium comes" on their father's death[161].  “Stephanus comes” donated property to the abbey of Pontlevoy, for the souls of “Theobaldi comitis patris mei et matris meæ Gundreæ…” by charter dated 1089[162].  As noted above, it is possible that “Gundreæ” in this charter is in fact a distorted transcription of “Gersendæ”, the name of Thibaut’s known first wife.  This cannot be verified unless another charter emerges which names the mother of Comte Etienne.  He succeeded his father in 1089 as ETIENNE Comte de Blois, de Chartres, de Châteaudun, de Sancerre et de Meaux.   

-        see below

Comte Thibaut III & his [second/third] wife had three children:

2.         EUDES de Blois (-1093).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names (in order) "Stephanum, Othonem, Hugonem fratres comites" as sons of "Theobaldus comes"[163]Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” had “consules Odonem et Hugonem fratres[164]The fact that he was the son of his father's third marriage is confirmed by "Odonis filius eius" subscribing the donation to Cluny by "Rotrocus castri Mauritanie comes atque Dunensis castri vicecomes" dated 11 Jan 1078, immediately after "Adeladis comitisse"[165]He succeeded as EUDES [IV] Comte de Troyes"Hugo comes Campanie Teotbaldi comitis filius" donated property to the abbey of Molesme by charter dated 2 Apr 1104, which names "frater meus Odo comes…"[166][m BERTHE, daughter of ---.  "Berte comitisse" subscribed the donation to Cluny by "Rotrocus castri Mauritanie comes atque Dunensis castri vicecomes" dated 11 Jan 1078, immediately after "Odonis filius eius [Adeladis]"[167].  There is no proof that Berthe was the wife of Eudes, although the proximity of the two names in the list of subscribers suggests that this may be the case.  Eudes is not described as "comes" in the charter, but it is possible that this was an oversight as his half-brother Etienne was accorded the title.  No other contemporary "Berte comitisse" has yet been identified.  Neither has any other reference to any wife of Eudes been found.] 

3.         PHILIPPE de Blois (-1100).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Philippum episcopum Cathalauensem et Hugonem Campanie comitem" as the two sons of "comiti Campanie Theobaldo" and his wife Adela[168]Bishop of Châlons 1093.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death in 1093 of "Rogerus III Cathalaunensis episcopus" and the succession of "Philippus frater comitis Hugonis Campaniensis natus de Alaide sorore sancti Symonis filius illius Theobaldi qui apud Sparnacum obiit"[169]"Hugo…comes Trecasinus cum Philippo fratre meo Catalaunensium episcopo" renounced rights over the village of Rouilly-Saint-Loup by charter dated [1100 or before] which names "patrem meum Theobaudum comitem"[170]The Annales Sancti Petri Catalaunensis record the death in 1100 of “Philippus episcopus” and the succession of “Hugo[171]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death in 1100 of "Philippus Cathalaunensis episcopus" and the succession of "Hugo"[172]

4.         HUGUES de Blois (-Palestine 14 Jun 1126).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Philippum episcopum Cathalauensem et Hugonem Campanie comitem" as the two sons of "comiti Campanie Theobaldo" and his wife Adela[173].  The Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum names (in order) "Stephanus et Hugo" sons of "comes Tetbaudus", specifying that Hugues "factus est …Trecassinorum comes" on their father's death[174].  Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” had “consules Odonem et Hugonem fratres[175]He succeeded his brother in 1093 as Comte de Troyes

m (Betrothed Breteuil, Chartres 1081) ADELA of England, daughter of WILLIAM I "the Conqueror" King of England & his wife Mathilde de Flandre (Normandy [1066/67]-Marigney-sur-Loire 8 Mar 1138, bur Abbey of Holy Trinity, Caen).  She is listed by Orderic Vitalis last among the daughters of King William in his description of their careers[192].  She is named third in his list of the daughters of King William I by Matthew Paris[193], but this appears unlikely in view of Adela's child-bearing until her husband's death in 1102.  Her birth date is estimated bearing in mind that marriage frequently took place in early adolescence at the time, and also that Adela clearly continued to bear children right up to her husband's death.  Orderic Vitalis records the betrothal “apud Bretolium” of “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” and “Guillelmo rege...Adelam eius filiam” and their marriage “apud Carnotum”, dated to 1081[194].  Orderic Vitalis records that she encouraged her husband to join the First Crusade and did not hide her shame when he deserted from Antioch in 1098[195].  Regent of Blois 1102-1107, after the death of her husband.  She became a nun at the Cluniac priory of Marigney-sur-Loire in [1122].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "VIII Id Mar" of "Adela comitissa"[196], and in another manuscript the death "VIII Id Mar" of "Adela nobilis Blesensium comitissa regis Anglorum Willelmi filia"[197]

Comte Etienne & his wife had [eleven] children:

2.         [AGNES (-after 1129).  "Hugo Carnotensis vicedominus…et Agnes uxor eius" donated property by charter dated to [1100/04][199]The origin of Agnes is uncertain.  Dion comments that “on ne voit nulle part le nom de famille d’Agnès[200].  Roger of Hoveden names [her supposed son] Hugues “Hugo de Puteaco thesaurarius Eboracensis ecclesiæ...regis Stephani nepos” when recording his appointment as bishop of Durham, dated to 1153[201].  If “nepos” in this passage can be correctly translated as nephew, she was the daughter of Etienne Comte de Blois et de Chartres and his wife Adela of England.  Dion states that Henri I “le Libéral” Comte de Champagne donated property for the anniversary of his father by charter dated 1152 which names [Agnes’s son] “Ebrardus de Puteolo consanguineus meus[202], which corroborates the existence of a relationship between the Blois/Champagne and Puiset families although the term “consanguineus” could include more distant connections.  If she was the daughter of Comte Etienne, her marriage date indicates that Agnes must have been one of his older children.  "Hugo vicecomes…et uxorem suam Agnetam, et filios Ebrardum atque Burchardum" donated property to Chartres Saint-Père by charter dated to [1101/29], with the consent of "comite Theobaldo"[203].  "Hugo Puteacensis vicecomes" donated property to the abbey of Sainte-Trinité de Tiron by charter dated 1129 witnessed by "uxore eius Agnete et filiis…Evrardo, Bucardo filiorum vicecomitis"[204]m (before 1104) HUGUES [III] du Puiset Vicomte de Chartres, son of ERARD [III] du Puiset Vicomte de Chartres & his wife Adelaide de Corbeil (-Palestine 1132).]

3.         GUILLAUME de Blois ([1090/93]-[1150])Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” and his wife had “filios quatuor: Guillelmum et Tedbaldum, Stephanumque et Henricum”, adding that Guillaume was “gener Geronis de Solleio et hæres” and “vir bonus...et pacificus, et sobole pollens atque facultatibus” (“a good and peaceful man, powerful through his descendants and his wealth”)[205]Seigneur de Sully, by right of his wife.  He was disinherited, retaining only Sully.

4.         THIBAUT de Blois ([1090/95]-10 Jan 1152, bur Lagny)Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” and his wife had “filios quatuor: Guillelmum et Tedbaldum, Stephanumque et Henricum”, adding that Thibaut was “hæres hæreditatis paternæ[206].  "Henricus comes cognomina Stephanus necnon et Adela uxor eius cum filiis nostris" granted immunities to Chartres Notre-Dame by charter dated [Oct 1100/1101], signed by "Stephani comitis, Adele comitisse, Guillelmi, Stephani, Odonis, Teobaldi"[207], which suggests that Thibaut may have been the fourth son although this is inconsistent with his having succeeded his father.  He succeeded his father in 1102 as THIBAUT IV “le Grand/le Vieil” Comte de Blois, de Troyes.

5.         EUDES de Blois (-25 Dec [after 1107]).  "Henricus comes cognomina Stephanus necnon et Adela uxor eius cum filiis nostris" granted immunities to Chartres Notre-Dame by charter dated [Oct 1100/1101], signed by "Stephani comitis, Adele comitisse, Guillelmi, Stephani, Odonis, Teobaldi"[208].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "VIII Kal Jan" of "Odo filius comitis Stephani", stating that "Adela…comitissa mater eius" made a donation for his soul[209].  This entry is dated "after 1106" in the edition but the basis for this is not clear.  Eudes is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[210] as the fifth son of Comte Etienne.  Weir suggests that he has been confused with Etienne's son Henri who, she states, is referred to as Eudes in one charter[211], but the Chartres necrology entry shows that Eudes was a separate person. 

6.         MATHILDE de Blois (-drowned off Barfleur, Normandy 25 Nov 1120).  Her marriage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis, who also names her parents[212].  The Annales Cestrienses record the marriage in 1115 of “Ricardus comes Cestriæ” and “Mathildam neptem Henrici regis filiam Stephanis comitis[213].  William of Malmesbury records that she drowned with her husband following the sinking of the “Blanche Nef [White Ship]”[214].  The Continuator of Florence of Worcester names "…neptis regis Comitissa de Cestria" among those drowned in the sinking of the White Ship[215].  The Annales Cestrienses record that “in die S. Katerine” 1120 “filius regis et Ricardus comes Cestrie cum uxore sua” were sunk “apud Barbelfleo[216]m (1115) RICHARD d'Avranches Earl of Chester Vicomte d’Avranches, son of HUGUES d’Avranches "Lupus" Earl of Chester & his wife Ermentrude de Clermont [en-Beauvaisis] ([1093]-drowned off Barfleur, Normandy 25 Nov 1120). 

7.         [ADELAIDE] de Blois .  Suger records that "Milo...de Monte Leherii" was obliged to divorce “sorore comitis[217]"Adela or Lithuise" is shown by Weir[218] as the daughter of Comte Etienne, and wife of Milon, but the primary source on which this information is based has not yet been identified.  "Lithuaise", daughter of Comte Etienne, is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[219] as the wife of Milon.  It is assumed that the name "Lithuaise" results from confusion with his mother.  The source which confirms her name as Adela/Adelaide has not been identified.  m ([1112], divorced 1113) as his second wife, MILON [II] de Montlhéry Vicomte de Troyes, son of MILON [I] "le Grand" Seigneur de Montlhéry & his wife Lithuaise Vicomtesse de Troyes (-1118).

8.         ELEONORE de Blois (-after 1148).  Kerrebrouck names Eleonore, daughter of Comte Etienne III, as the first wife of Raoul Comte de Vermandois[220] but the primary source on which this information is based has not yet been identified.  After her repudiation she found refuge with her brother Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne who declared war on her husband and appealed to Pope Innocent II, who excommunicated him.  Ctss Eléonore appeared in person before Pope Eugene III at Reims 21 Mar 1148, but the Pope confirmed the annulment of her marriage[221]m ([1120], repudiated 1142) as his first wife, RAOUL [I] "le Vaillant" Comte de Vermandois, son of HUGUES "le Maisné" de France Comte de Vermandois & his wife Adelais Ctss de Vermandois, de Valois et de Crépy ([1094]-13 Oct 1152, bur Priory of Saint-Arnoul de Crépy). 

9.         ETIENNE de Blois (Blois [1096/97]-Dover 25 Oct 1154, bur Faversham Abbey, Kent)Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” and his wife had “filios quatuor: Guillelmum et Tedbaldum, Stephanumque et Henricum”, adding that Etienne received “comitatum Moritolii in Normannia et multos in Anglia...honores” from “Henrici regis avunculi sui[222].  "Henricus comes cognomina Stephanus necnon et Adela uxor eius cum filiis nostris" granted immunities to Chartres Notre-Dame by charter dated [Oct 1100/1101], signed by "Stephani comitis, Adele comitisse, Guillelmi, Stephani, Odonis, Teobaldi"[223], which suggests that Thibaut may have been the fourth son.  Created Comte de Mortain by Henry I King of England "after Guillaume Comte de Mortain was captured at Tinchebrai" (in 1106)[224].  Orderic Vitalis records that Etienne was invested with Séez, Alençon, Le Mêle-sur-Sarthe and Almenèches with La Roche-Mabille by his brother Comte Thibaut IV, after the latter was invested with these lands by Henry I King of England who had confiscated them from Robert de Bellême[225]It is difficult to date this event accurately.  Robert de Bellême's territories were confiscated in 1112, but the passage in Orderic follows a description of the rebellion of Robert Giroie which is assumed to have taken place in Jul [1119].  Comte de Boulogne, by right of his wife, before 1125.  He succeeded 22 Dec 1135 as STEPHEN King of England

10.      [ALIX de Blois .  "Alice" is shown by Weir[226] as the youngest daughter of Comte Etienne and the wife of "Renaud III Comte de Joigny" but the primary source on which this information is based has not been identified.  La Thaumassière names “Alix femme de Regnaud IV Comte de Joigny” as youngest daughter of Etienne Comte de Blois and his wife, but does not cite the source on which this information is based[227]m [as his first/second wife,] RENARD [III] Comte de Joigny, son of RENARD [II] Comte de Joigny & his wife Vaindemonde de Courtenay (-1150).] 

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

Comte Etienne had [one illegitimate daughter by Mistress (1)]:

12.       [EMMA The Hyde Register lists "Herbertus camerarius, Arnulfus filius eius, Emma uxor eius" immediately after the names of King Henry I and his first wife[239].  Secondary sources state that the wife of Herbert FitzHenry was Emma de Blois, illegitimate daughter of Etienne Comte de Blois.  This is presumably based on the Chronicle of Meaux, in Yorkshire, which names "comitis --- Herberti filius, ex Emma sorore regis Anglorum Stephani progenitus"[240].  As this source is dated to [1394/1400], it is unlikely to be conclusive in relation to events which occurred 250 years earlier, in the absence of other corroborative evidence.  Eyton includes no reference to any wife of Herbert FitzHenry in his article on the barony of FitzHerbert[241].  Until further evidence comes to light, it is suggested that the information should be treated with caution.  If it is correct, the chronology of the FitzHerbert family dictates that Emma must have been born while her supposed father was still young, probably before his marriage to Adela of England in 1080.  m HERBERT FitzHenry the Chamberlain, son of HENRY & his wife --- (-[1129/30]).] 

 

 

THIBAUT de Blois, son of ETIENNE Comte de Blois & his wife Adela of England ([1090/95]-10 Jan 1152, bur Lagny)Orderic Vitalis records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes” and his wife had “filios quatuor: Guillelmum et Tedbaldum, Stephanumque et Henricum”, adding that Thibaut was “hæres hæreditatis paternæ[242].  "Henricus comes cognomina Stephanus necnon et Adela uxor eius cum filiis nostris" granted immunities to Chartres Notre-Dame by charter dated [Oct 1100/1101], signed by "Stephani comitis, Adele comitisse, Guillelmi, Stephani, Odonis, Teobaldi"[243], which suggests that Thibaut may have been the fourth son although this is inconsistent with his having succeeded his father.  It does not appear from other sources that Thibaut was younger than his brother Etienne.  Orderic Vitalis provides some indication of his birth year when he records that his mother Ctss Adela provided troops to Louis VI King of France at the time of the siege of Montmorency in [1108] "because Count Stephen her husband had gone on crusade and her eldest sons, William and Theobald, who were not yet of age, were unable to command troops of knights"[244].  The description is confused because Count Etienne had died several years earlier, but it nevertheless provides some indication of the comparative youth of the brothers Guillaume and Thibaut at the time.  This is corroborated by the charter dated 2 Apr 1104 under which "Hugo comes Campanie Teotbaldi comitis filius" donated property to the abbey of Molesme which names "…comitissam Adelaidem uxorem fratris mei comitis Stephani nepotes…" and is subscribed by "Teotbaldus puer filius Stephani comitis nepos huius comitis Hugonis"[245]He succeeded his father in 1102 as THIBAUT IV “le Grand/le Vieil” Comte de Blois, de Troyes.  He was invested with the county of Chartres in 1107.  Chibnall speculates that the delay in this investiture may have been due to lack of proof that his father was dead rather than Thibaut's own youth[246], but Thibaut’s age is the obvious reason.  Orderic Vitalis states that Comte Thibaut supported Hugues du Puiset during his rebellion against Louis VI King of France in 1111, which led to more widespread warfare culminating in Thibaut defeating the king's forces near Meaux later in 1111[247].  Henry of Huntingdon records that Thibaut rebelled against King Louis in 1116, aided by his uncle Henry I King of England[248].  It is assumed that these two reports refer to the same rebellion, with contradictory dating.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "Hugo comes Campanie" became a Knight Templar in 1125 and was succeeded by "Theobaldus nepos eius"[249].  Orderic Vitalis states that Thibaut was proposed as successor to Henry I King of England by Normans at a meeting at Neubourg in Dec 1135, but when they heard that his younger brother had forestalled him, they agreed to serve King Stephen[250].  Orderic Vitalis also records that he was offered the crown of England in 1141 after his brother Stephen was captured at Lincoln, but declined the offer[251].  He entered into conflict with Raoul Comte de Vermandois in 1142-43.  Louis VII King of France declared war against him, laid siege to and captured Vitry but signed peace at Vitry in 1143.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death "1152 VI Id Jan" of "comes Campanie Theobaldus" and his burial "apud Latinicacum"[252].  A list of foundations at Troyes records the memory "10 Jan" of "Thibault Comte de Champagne décédé ce jour"[253].  The necrology of Saint-Etienne, Troyes records the death "10 Jan" of "Theobaldus comes Campanie"[254].  The necrology of Saint-Loup, Troyes records the death "10 Jan 1152" of "Teobaudus comes" and his burial "in ecclesia de Lagny"[255].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "IV Id Jan" of "Teobaldus comes palatinus", stating that "cuius filius Teobaldus comes Blesensis et Francie senescallus…matris sui Matildis" donated property for his soul[256]

m ([1125]) MATHILDE von Sponheim, daughter of ENGELBERT Marchese of Istria [later Duke of Carinthia] [Sponheim] & his wife Uta von Passau [Ratpotonen] (-[13 Dec] [1160/1161]).  She is named by Orderic Vitalis, who calls her father "Duke Engelbert", when recording her marriage[257].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records in 1125 that “domnus Norbertus Premonstratensis ordinis institutor” was sent by "comite Campanie Theobaldo" to Germany to negotiate his marriage with "filiam...Ingelberti...marchionis Foroiuliensis", adding that “fratres eiusdem Ingelberti erant episcopus Ratisbonensis et archiepiscopus Coloniensis Fredericus[258]The same source names "comitissa Mathildis Campaniensis et uxor Renaldi comitis Nivernensis et comitissa Montis Veteris iuxta Coloniam et mater illorum Romanorum qui Froiepain dicuntur" as sisters of "archiepiscopi Coloniensis Frederici"[259].  In the case of the two sisters named first (of which the wife of Thibaut IV Comte de Blois was the older), other sources confirm that they were daughters of Engelbert Marchese of Istria [Duke of Carinthia].  Ascertaining the precise family relationship between all four presumed sisters and Friedrich [I] Archbishop of Köln depends on interpreting apparently contradictory sources which link the archbishop with the Sponheim and Schwarzenberg/Regensberg families, a problem which is discussed in detail in the document KÖLN ARCHBISHOPRIC.  "Teobaudus Blesensis comes" made a donation to Montiérender by charter dated 1139 with the consent of "Matildis comitissa uxor mee et Henricus filius meus"[260].  "Comitissa Mathildis et filius eius Henricus et Theobaudus et Stephanus" donated property to the abbey of Fontevraud by charter dated to [1125/49][261].  A list of foundations at Troyes records the memory "13 Dec" of "Mathilde épouse du comte Thibaut"[262].  The necrology of Saint-Etienne, Troyes records the death "13 Dec" of "Mathildis comitissa"[263].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "Id Dec" of "comitissa Mathildis mater…archiepiscopi Senonensis Willelmi et…Henrici comitis, Teobaldi comitis atque comitis Stephani"[264]

A.      COMTES de TOURS

 

 

The county of Tours was held by different Carolingian nominees in the 9th century.  It was acquired by the Comtes de Blois some time in the mid-10th century. 

 

 

1.         HUGUES, son of --- (-20 Oct 837, bur Monza)Thegan refers to the wife of Emperor Lothar as "filiam Hugi comitis, qui erat de stirpe cuiusdam ducis nomine Etih" and in the following paragraph names her "Irmingarda"[485]"Karolus…augustus…imperator Romanum…rex Francorum et Langobardorum" donated property "in pago Andegavino in loco Laniaco…et in pago Rodonico" to Kloster Prüm by charter dated 28 Apr 807 which names "Hugo comes"[486]Comte de Tours: Einhard names "Haido episcopus Baslensus et Hugus comes Toronicus et Aio Langobardus de Foroiluii" as imperial missi who met the missi from Constantinople in 811[487]The Annales Fuldenses record that the emperor sent "Haitonem Basilensem episcopus et Hug comitem Turonicum et Aio Langobardum de Aquileia" as missi to Constantinople in 811 to confirm the peace "cum Niceforo"[488].  The Gesta Francorum names "Hug comitem Turonicum" in 811[489].  Timiolus and abbot of St Julien d'Auxerre 811.  The extensive interests of Hugues in Alsace are confirmed by the following document: a charter confirms imperial agreement to an exchange of property agreed 2 Sep 1820 between “Huc quondam comes” and “monasterium...Wizunburg” which specifies numerous places in Alsace[490].  The reference “quondam” is unexplained unless the document was prepared later than the date specified, either during the period which followed Hugues’s asset confiscations in [828] or after he died.  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that Emperor Louis was met at "Compendium" by "Pippinus filius eius cum magnatis primis patris sui…Hug et Matfrido…Gotefrido"[491].  The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris names "Hugonem et Mathfridum comites" as missi of Pepin King of Aquitaine [in 827][492].  Wilsdorf highlights the likelihood that the failure of their campaign against the Moors in the march of Spain at this time was due to delay in Hugues and Matfried arriving with their army in time to prevent the devastation of areas around Barcelona and Girona[493].  This appears confirmed by the Vita Hludowici Imperatoris which records that the affair was submitted to an assembly at Aachen in Feb 828 which recommended the confiscation of their assets as punishment[494].  This presumably included the county of Tours, in the case of Hugues who, as noted below, was called “timidus” by Thegan.  Wilsdorf highlights the probable involvement of Hugues in the plots in [830/36], resulting from the rivalry between Emperor Louis (and his wife Judith) and the emperor’s eldest son Lothaire, which resulted in further periods of successive rehabilitation and disgrace for Hugues, culminating in his exile to northern Italy[495].  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "Hlutharius" submitted to his father Emperor Louis I [in 836] followed by "socer eius Hug timidus"[496].  The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "Wala Corbeiensis abbas, Matfridus, Hugo, Lantbertus, Godefridus, itemque filius eius Godefridus, Agimbertus comes Pertensis…sed et Richardus" died between "Kal Sep usque ad missam sancti Martini" [in 836][497].  The Gesta Francorum records that "Lantbertus et Hugus" were among the "plureo ex primoribus Italiæ" who were killed at Ticino "837 III Kal Ian noctu octies" when "tremuisse perhibetur"[498].  The Annales Fuldenses also record the earthquake at Ticino in Italy "837 III Kal Ian" in which "plures ex primoribus Italiæ" were killed including "Lantbertus et Hugus"[499]

 

2.         --- .  Comte de Tours [828].  The identity of Hugues’s immediate successor in Tours, after his assets were confiscated in [828], has not been ascertained.

A.      SEIGNEURS d'AMBOISE

 

 

1.         LISIARDSeigneur d’Amboise.  A charter dated 1110 records the rights of Marmoutier in the priory of Sablé, recording that "Hugo vicarius Andecavensis, post mortem patris sui Alberici" first donated the priory, that "Liziardus de Ambasiaco" donated mills at Sablé, that Hugues also donated the priory of "Bœria" with the consent of "quatuor filii eius Guillelmus, Albericus, Hamelinus et Gaufridus", that after the death of "Roberto, Burgundiæ Sabolii domino", "Liziardus filius eius" confirmed the donations by "avus…Robertus", the charter signed by "Guido, Liziardi frater, Henricus monachus, Hersendis mater, Gedheldis soror"[510].  The references to Sablé suggest that the original donation recorded in this charter is probably dated to the 10th century (see the document ANJOU, COUNTS & NOBILITY, SEIGNEURS de SABLE for further details).  The document suggests that Lisiard’s donation may have been contemporaneous.  If that is correct, Lisiard Seigneur d’Amboise was a different person from the other individuals called Lisiard who are named in the same document.

a)         MARIE de Bueil (before 1388-after 1422).  Her birth date is estimated from Père Anselme stating that she was eleven years old at the time of her first marriage[760]m firstly (before 1399) HARDOUIN Seigneur de Fontaines, son of --- (-1399).  m secondly (1403) JEAN de Châteaubriand Seigneur de Chalin et des Roches-Baritaut, son of --- (-before 1422).

The following reconstruction of this family is an outline which shows selected family members only, mainly for hyperlinking to other families studied in Medieval Lands.  The information has not been verified against primary source documentation, unless otherwise stated. 

 

HUGUES [I] d’Amboise, son of JEAN [II] Seigneur d’Amboise & his wife [Jeanne de Charost] (-before 1346).  Seigneur de Chaumont-sur-Loire. 

m (1304) JEANNE de Saint-Vérain, daughter of ERARD [I] Seigneur de Saint-Vérain & his wife Jeanne de Mello (-before 1316).

E.      SEIGNEURS de MONTBAZON

 

 

1.         BARTHELEMY de Montbazon Seigneur de Montbazonm MARIE de Dreux, daughter of ROBERT [II] de Dreux Seigneur de Bû & his first wife --- ([1285/1300]).  Père Anselme shows her parentage and marriage without citing any source on which the information is based[786]Barthélemy & his wife had two children: 

a)         ISABELLE de Montbazon Père Anselme shows her parentage and marriage without citing any source on which the information is based nor providing any indication of the family of her husband[787]m JEAN Seigneur de l’Isle, son of ---. 

b)         RENAUD de Montbazon (-[1368]).  Père Anselme shows his parentage without citing any source on which the information is based[788].  [m firstly EUSTACHIE d’Antenaise, daughter of ---.  Père Anselme says that Renaud married “Eustache d’Antenaise” by whom he was father of Jeanne[789].  The sources quoted below indicate that Jeanne de Craon was Jeanne’s mother.  However, it is not known whether Eustachie was an earlier wife of Renaud.]  m [secondly] JEANNE de Craon, daughter of MAURICE [VII] de Craon Seigneur de Sainte-Maure et de Marcillac & his wife Marguerite de Mello ([1329/31?]-before 12 Jan 1376).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the following document: a decision of the Parliament of Paris, dated 28 Feb 1404 (O.S.), in the dispute between "Marie de Sully veuve de Guy VI" and “Olivier de Clisson et Robert de Beaumanoir” concerning “la châtellenie de Bournezeau et des terres de Ponceaux et de Puymauffrais en Poitou”, declared that “Marguerite de Mello donna à Maurice VII, outre Isabelle et Amaury, une fille...Jeanne” who had married “le seigneur de Montbazon[790]The existence of this second daughter of Maurice [VII] is surprising considering the following document which suggests that Amaury [IV] Seigneur de Craon had only one sister: "Olivier de Clisson tuteur d’Amaury et de sa sœur" acknowledged receipt of money for their maintenance from “Jean de Châlon second époux de Marguerite de Mello” by charter dated 11 Nov 1336[791].  An explanation could be that Jeanne was still an infant when her mother remarried (maybe she was born posthumously), was too young to leave with a guardian, and was taken to Burgundy by her mother to live in her stepfather’s household.  This would also explain her absence from earlier sources relating to the Craon family.  Jeanne probably died young, maybe soon after her marriage, leaving an only daughter whose rights to participate in the succession of her maternal uncle Amaury [IV] were recognised by her maternal aunt Isabelle, who also bequeathed property to her by testament (see below).  Renaud & his [second] wife had one child: 

i)          JEANNE de Montbazon (-before 26 Jul 1395).  Dame de Montbazon, de Montsoreau, de Châteauneuf et de Jarnac-sur-Charente.  "Loys seigneur de Seuly et de Craon" varied the agreement between “notre...compaigne Isabeau dame de Seuly et de Craon” and “notre...cousin messire Guillaume de Craon le jeune seigneur de Marcillac” concerning the succession of “notre...frère feu monseigneur Almaury seigneur de Craon, dernier trespassé” by reason of “notre...cousine la dame de Montbazon femme dudit monsieur Guillaume”, whereby the latter received “le chastel et chastellenie de Pressigny en Touraine...de Saincte More...de Nouâtre et de Ferrière...”, by charter dated 12 Jan 1375 (O.S.)[792].  Broussillon was misled by “cousine” in this document into thinking that Jeanne could not have been “nièce” of Isabelle, ignoring the possibility that the term was used in the general sense of relative (which would not be unusual, considering the flexibility with which relationship terms were used in medieval documents).  Jeanne’s position in the family is confirmed by the 28 Feb 1404 document quoted above which confirms the parentage of her mother.  The primary source which confirms her first marriage has not been identified.  A Papal dispensation was presumably required for Jeanne’s second marriage, considering her close consanguinity with her second husband, but no such document has been identified.  The testament of "Isabeau de Craon dame de Sully", dated 15 Sep 1383, bequeathed property to “...sa nièce de Montbason...[793]m firstly SIMON de Vendôme, son of BOUCHARD [IX] Comte de Vendôme & his wife Alix de Bretagne (-after 3 Sep 1363).  m secondly [her mother’s first cousin] GUILLAUME de Craon Seigneur de Marcillac, son of GUILLAUME de Craon Vicomte de Châteaudun & his wife Marguerite de Flandre (-[13 Jul 1409/6 Jun 1410]).  He succeeded his father as Vicomte de Châteaudun.

m secondly ([1070/75]) ADENORDE de Montreuil, daughter of BERLAY [I] de Montreuil & his wife --- de Saumur ([1050/60]-after [1087]).  The Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum records that "Ugo de Sancta Maura" married "Aanordim filiam Berlai de Musteriolo ortam ex sorore Gelduini de Salmurio" by whom he had "Goscelinum et Ugonem"[811].  Insufficient information is known about the dating of the early Montreuil and Saumur families to test the chronology, and therefore reliability, of this statement.  The estimated date of her marriage is suggested by the probable date of birth of her stepson Guillaume and the fact that her two sons married in the late 11th/early 12th century.  This in turn suggests Adenorde’s birth in [1050/60], which suggests that her father was not the same person as Berlay [II] Seigneur de Montreuil (see ANJOU).  A charter dated to [1087] records that “domnus Hugo” donated property after the death of his son Guillaume, with the consent of “uxor eius Adenordis...Goscelinus et Hugo filii eorum[812]

[m thirdly ---.  No direct evidence of this possible third marriage has been found.  However, Hugues [I]’s younger son named Guillaume (first named in [1101]) must have been several years younger than his brothers Goscelin [II] and Hugues [II].  This suggests the possibility that he and his possible younger siblings may have been born from a later unrecorded third marriage of their father.] 

Hugues [I] & his first wife had one child: 

1.         GUILLAUME de Sainte-Maure ([1067/70]-Gascony [1086/87], bur Noyers).  “Rainaldus de Grandi Campo et nepotes eius...” donated “ecclesiam...Savinniacus” to Noyers, confirmed by “domnus Aimericus dominus Fagiæ” who was suzerain, by charter dated to [1081], witnessed by “...Guillelmus filius Hugonis de Sancta Maura...[813].  Guillaume’s description as “juvenis” in the following document suggests that he was between 15 and 20 years old when he died, bearing in mind that he must have been old enough to participate in the siege.  A charter dated to [1087] records that “quidam juvenis filius unius...Hugonis...de Sancta Maura Guillelmus” fell ill during the siege of “quoddam castrum in Guasconia”, donated “ecclesiam...Parilliacus ante Cainonem castrum” (which “Johannes de Cainone” had granted to “patri meo cum matre mea”) to Noyers, requested burial at Noyers “ubi mater eius sepulta fuerat”, died and was taken back for burial at Noyers where his father confirmed his son’s donation, that “patruus eius domnus Aimericus cognomento Paganus filius Johannis de Cainone” donated property “pro sorore mea et nepote hic sepultis”, and that “domnus Hugo” donated other property with the consent of “uxor eius Adenordis...Goscelinus et Hugo filii eorum[814]

-        see below

3.         HUGUES [II] de Sainte-Maure (-killed [1102]).  The Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum records that "Ugo de Sancta Maura" married "Aanordim filiam Berlai de Musteriolo ortam ex sorore Gelduini de Salmurio" by whom he had "Goscelinum et Ugonem"[825]A charter dated to [1087] records that “domnus Hugo” donated property after the death of his son Guillaume, with the consent of “uxor eius Adenordis...Goscelinus et Hugo filii eorum[826].  “Galterius Poteruns” donated “terram intra Haiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “Hugone de Sancta Maura et Hugone filio eius cum Cassamota uxore sua”, by charter dated to [1099], witnessed by “Goscelino de Sancta Maura...[827].  A charter dated to [1101] records that “Oggerius de Mota...” donated “terræ apud Salvaticum” to Noyers, with the consent of “...Aimericus et Girardus filii Ivonis...Hugone de Sancta Maura et Guillelmo filio eius...[828]The Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum records that "Gosselinum et Ugonem filios Ugonis de Sancta Maura" helped "Hugo dominus Ambaziaci" [Hugues [I] Seigneur d’Amboise] against "comes Fulco" [Foulques IV “le Rechin” Comte d’Anjou][829]A charter dated to [1102] records that “vir nobilis Hugo de Sancta Maura” had “duos filios valentes Goscelinum...et Hugonem” who were killed and that he donated property for the souls of “filiorum suorum Guillelmi, Goscelini et Hugonis”, with the consent of “duo filii Hugonis, Guillelmus et Petrus et filia eius Marquissa et uxor Goscelini filii eius...Falcabella[830]m (before [1099]) CASSAMOTA, daughter of --- (-before [1102]).  “Galterius Poteruns” donated “terram intra Haiam” to Noyers, with the consent of “Hugone de Sancta Maura et Hugone filio eius cum Cassamota uxore sua”, by charter dated to [1099], witnessed by “Goscelino de Sancta Maura...[831]Heiress of la Haye and the vicomté de Tours: the Gesta Ambaziensium Dominorum names "Gosselinum et Ugonem filios Ugonis de Sancta Maura", adding that "primogenitus" [error] married "Quasimotam" who brought “jure hereditario oppidum Haie et viceconsulatus Turonis[832].  Her absence from the charter dated to [1102] which records the death of her husband, in contrast to the wife of his older brother Goscelin [II], suggests that Cassamota may have been deceased at the time. 

4.         DENISE de Saint-Maure (-[1096]).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated to [1096] under which “Yrwisus cognomento Chabruns...quam filii mei Gosbertus et Pollardus et uxor filii mei Gosberti filia Hugonis de Sancta Maura” donated property “in villa...Aziacus” to Noyers[833].  Her name is confirmed by the charter dated to [1096] which records that “Hyrrwissus Cabruns”, before becoming a monk, donated property “ad Aziacum” to Noyers with the consent of “filiis suis Gosberto et Aimerico Pollardo”, that after the death of “Dionisia uxore Gosberti” he donated further property for her anniversary and those of “patris eius et fratrum eius et avi eius Raginaldi Cabronis et Hermæ aviæ suæ et matris eius Agathæ”, and that Gosbert made donations before leaving for Jerusalem[834]m (before [1096]) GOSBERT, son of HERVE Chabron & his wife ---. 

Hugues [I] & his [second/third] wife had [three] children: 

5.         GUILLAUME de Sainte-Maure (after [1087]-before [1115]).  He was presumably born after the death of his older half.brother of the same name.  A charter dated to [1101] records that “Oggerius de Mota...” donated “terræ apud Salvaticum” to Noyers, with the consent of “...Aimericus et Girardus filii Ivonis...Hugone de Sancta Maura et Guillelmo filio eius...[835].  A charter dated to [1102] records that “vir nobilis Hugo de Sancta Maura” had “duos filios valentes Goscelinum...et Hugonem” who were killed and that he donated property for the souls of “filiorum suorum Guillelmi, Goscelini et Hugonis”, with the consent of “duo filii Hugonis, Guillelmus et Petrus et filia eius Marquissa et uxor Goscelini filii eius...Falcabella[836].  “Hugo de Sancta Maura” donated a serf to Noyers, for the soul of “filii sui Guillelmi junioris”, with the consent of “Hugo nepos eius”, by charter dated [1115][837].  “Hugo de Sancta Maura”, anticipating his death, confirmed earlier donations made to Noyers (1) for the soul of “Guillelmi prioris filii mei”, (2) on the deaths of “filiorum meorum Guillelmi [error for Gozlini?] et Hugonis”, and (3) lastly for the soul of “filii mei Guillelmi qui ultimus omnium defunctus est”, with the consent of “Hugo nepos meus filius filii mei”, by charter dated [1116][838]

7.         [MARQUISE de Sainte-Maure .  A charter dated to [1102] records that “vir nobilis Hugo de Sancta Maura” had “duos filios valentes Goscelinum...et Hugonem” who were killed and that he donated property for the souls of “filiorum suorum Guillelmi, Goscelini et Hugonis”, with the consent of “duo filii Hugonis, Guillelmus et Petrus et filia eius Marquissa et uxor Goscelini filii eius...Falcabella[840].  This document could indicate that Guillaume, Pierre and Marquise were children either of Hugues [I] or Hugues [II].  As Hugues [I] was recorded elsewhere with a younger son named Guillaume, it seems probable that Pierre and Marquise were his other younger children.  The chronology also suggests the improbability of Hugues [II] having three children who were old enough to have given consent to a transaction in [1102].]

Guillaume [III] & his wife had children: 

1.         GUILLAUME [IV] de Saint-Maure ([1235/45]-[8 Jul 1296/1300]).  His parentage is confirmed by his marriage contract quoted below.  Seigneur de Sainte-Maure.  After the death of Maurice [III] de Belleville Seigneur de Montaigu (second husband of Isabelle de Lusignan, widow of Guillaume’s maternal uncle Geoffroy [VI] de Rancon), Guillaume took possession of Marcillac: a charter dated 3 Nov 1274 notified that nobilis vir Guillelmus de Sancta Mora dominus de Marciliaco” gave homage for the castle of Marcillac and other properties to the bishop of Angoulême[890].  This possession was disputed by Isabelle, as shown by the charter dated 24 Dec 1277 in which Hugo de Aquacava clericus, senescallus de Marcilhaco” gave homage for Marcillac to the bishop of Angoulême in the name of “nobilis dominæ Hysabellis de Marchia dominæ de Marcilhaco”, stating that this was delayed because of “multiplicitatem negotiorum suorum” which followed the death of “domino Mauricio de Bellavilla marito dictæ dominæ[891].  The dispute concerning Marcillac is explained further by the following document: Hysabellis de Lesigniaco domina Quimiumquerii et de Marciliaco” gave homage to the bishop of Angoulême for the usufruct of all properties for which “Guillelmus de Sancta Mora, proprietarius feudi moventis a dicto domino episcopoin castro et castellania de Marciliaco”, which usufruct had been established “propter nuptias a...domino Gaufrido de Rancunio, ultimo defuncto, quondam marito nostro”, by charter dated 14 Jan 1278[892].  “Jehan chevalier d’Avoir” acknowledged his obligation to accompany “monsegnor de Saincte-Maure...Guillaume” to “la sainte terre d’Outremer” by charter dated Jun 1278[893]Guillelmus de Sancta Maura miles dominus eiusdem loci et de Marciliaco” acknowledged holding Marcillac as the fief of the bishop of Angoulême by charter dated 13 Jun 1293[894].  A charter dated 8 Jul 1296 records that domino Guillelmo de Sancta Maura domino eiusdem loci et de Marciliaco milite” acknowledged holding Marcillac as the fief of the bishop of Angoulême, in the presence “dominis Petro de sancta Maura fratre prænominati domini de Marciliaco, Turonensi,...[895]m firstly (contract 1270) ISABELLE d’Amboise, daughter of JEAN [I] de Berrie Seigneur d’Amboise & his wife Agnes ---.  The marriage contract between "Johannes de Berria dominus Ambasiæ miles...Ysabellim filiam dicti domini Ambasie" and "Guillelmo domino de Sancta Maura militi...Guillelmi filii eiusdem domini de Sancta Maura" is dated 1270[896]m secondly as her second husband, AGNES de Pons Dame de Mareuil, widow of SAVARY Vicomte de Thouars, daughter of [GEOFFROY [III] Seigneur de Pons & his wife A---] (-after 20 Dec 1302).  Her second marriage is confirmed by the marriage contract between "Amaury seigneur de Craon et de Sableill vallet" and "madame Agnès de Ponz dame de Maroylle jadis fame monsour Guillaume seignour de Seincte More et Alliz jadis fame Guillaume de Seincte More vallet...Ysabeau de Seincte More fille do dit Guillaume de Seincte More et de ladite Aalliz", dated 24 Aug 1300[897].  "Agnes de Pons dame de Mareuil et Pressigny" relinquished “tous les droits de son douaire sur Noirmoutier” in favour of Amaury [III] de Craon and Isabelle his wife by charter dated 20 Dec 1302[898].  Guillaume [III] & his first wife had one child: 

a)         GUILLAUME [V] de Sainte-Maure ([1271/72]-before 24 Aug 1300).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although it is indicated by the marriage contract of his daughter dated 24 Aug 1300, in which his own and his supposed father’s widow are both named.  Seigneur de Sainte-Maurem ([1288/90]) as her first husband, ALIX de Thouars, daughter of SAVARY de Thouars Vicomte de Thouars & his wife Agnes de Pons (-before 29 Apr 1315).  "Gui vicomte de Toarz chevalier…Geufray sire de Chastiau Bruiant chevalier et…Marguerite de Lezeignen sa fame dame de la Chiese et mers audit vicomte de Toarz et…Agnes de Ponz dame de Maroil, fame ça en arrière à noble home Savari, jadis viconte de Toarz" provided for the inheritance of "la dite noble dame Agnès de Pons et a Aaliz sa fille, et fille audit Savari jadis viconte de Toarz, notre oncle", with the consent of "madame Marguerite d’Eu nostre fame", by charter dated 25 Jul 1278[899]The marriage contract between "Amaury seigneur de Craon et de Sableill vallet" and "madame Agnès de Ponz dame de Maroylle jadis fame monsour Guillaume seignour de Seincte More et Alliz jadis fame Guillaume de Seincte More vallet...Ysabeau de Seincte More fille do dit Guillaume de Seincte More et de ladite Aalliz" is dated 24 Aug 1300[900].  She married secondly as his first wife, Geoffroy [VIII] de Châteaubriand.  Her second marriage is indicated by the charter dated 29 Apr 1315 under which Amaury [III] Seigneur de Craon and Geoffroy de Châteaubriant "d’où il résulte que ce dernier avait épousé feu Alix de Thouars, fille d’Agnès et belle-mère d’Amaury III" by whom she had "une fille unique décédée avant la rédaction de l’acte"[901]Guillaume [V] & his wife had one child: 

i)          ISABELLE de Sainte-Maure ([1290]-15 Dec 1310, bur Angers Cordeliers).  The marriage contract between "Amaury seigneur de Craon et de Sableill vallet" and "madame Agnès de Ponz dame de Maroylle [jadis fame monsour Guillaume seignour de Seincte More] [error?] et Alliz jadis fame Guillaume de Seincte More vallet...Ysabeau de Seincte More fille do dit Guillaume de Seincte More et de ladite Aalliz" is dated 24 Aug 1300[902].  “Almarricus de Credonio miles, dominus de Marcilhiaco” gave homage to the bishop of Angoulême for his rights in Marcillac, “racione Hysabellis uxoris nostræ filiæ quondam domini Guillelmi de Sancta Maura olim domini de Marcilhiaco”, by charter dated 16 Apr 1309[903].  It is interesting to note that Isabelle’s father was not named “miles” in this document, in contrast to her husband, which indicates that Guillaume [V] her father was never knighted (he is named “vallet” in the marriage contract dated 24 Aug 1300) and was a different person from Guillaume [IV].  A manuscript of the Cordeliers d’Angers lists members of the Craon family buried "dans la chapelle Saint-Jean", including “Madame Ysabel de Saincte-Maure dame de Craon première femme de messire Amory sire de Craon” who died 15 Dec 1310[904]m (contract 24 Aug 1300) as his first wife, AMAURY [III] Seigneur de Craon, son of MAURICE [V] Seigneur de Craon & his wife Mathilde Berthout van Mechelen ([1280]-26 Jan 1333, bur Angers Cordeliers)

2.         other children .  Their existence is confirmed by the charter dated 1269 under which "Hugo...Parteniaci miles" and [her husband] "Guillielmus dominus de Sancta Maura miles...et nomine liberorum dicti Guillelmi" divided the succession of “defuncti Gaufridi de Ranconio senioris...ad ipsos liberos...[et] defuncti Gaufridi iunioris[905]

3.         PIERRE [I] de Sainte-Maure (-after 1328, bur Saint-Espin).  A charter dated 8 Jul 1296 records that domino Guillelmo de Sancta Maura domino eiusdem loci et de Marciliaco milite” acknowledged holding Marcillac as the fief of the bishop of Angoulême, in the presence “dominis Petro de sancta Maura fratre prænominati domini de Marciliaco, Turonensi,...[906].  Sénemaud records that Pierre de Sainte-Maure Seigneur de Montgaugier deuxième fils de Guillaume [III] et de Jeanne de Rancon” made his testament dated 1328, left by “Mahaud sa femme, [ses fils] Pierre II, Guillaume de Sainte-Maure doyen de l’église de Tours, chancellier de France, Guy de Sainte-Maure...et des filles”, and that the last named son was ancestor of “la branche de Jonzac et de Montausier[907].  The testament of [his son] “Guillelmus de S.

i)          [PIERRE [III] de Sainte-Maure (-after 10 Sep 1372).  Père Anselme amalgamates Pierre [II] and Pierre [III] as one person[914].  From a chronological point of view, this is unlikely to be correct.  Pierre [II] was named in the 1334 testament of his brother Guillaume, which also named as executor their nephew Pierre de Palluau who was presumably adult at the time, placing his birth to [1310] at the latest.  If that is correct, his mother and her brother Pierre [II] must have been born before [1295], a suggestion which is consistent with the suggested chronology of Pierre [II]’s cousin Guillaume [V] de Saint-Maure (see above).

ii)         [ISOLDE de Sainte-Maure (-after 1377).  “Iseult de Sainte-Maure jadis veuve de messire Pierre de Paluau chevalier seigneur de Montrésor, et depuis remariée à Jean de la Jaille chevalier” purchased a chapel jointly with “Geoffroy de Paluau chevalier seigneur de la Motte sous-Paluau” by charter dated 1377[915].  Père Anselme indicates that Isolde was the daughter of Pierre [I] de Sainte-Maure[916].  This suggestion appears to result from confusion with the daughter of Pierre [I] who was the mother of another Pierre de Palluau, who was named executor of the 1334 testament of [his maternal uncle] Guillaume de Sainte-Maure (see below).  From a chronoligcal point of view, it is more likely that Isolde was the daughter of Pierre [II].  m firstly PIERRE de Palluau Seigneur de Montrésor, son of GEOFFROY de Palluau Seigneur de Montrésor & his wife --- (-before 1373).  m secondly ([1372/73]) JEAN de la Jaille, son of --- (-after 1377).]

f)          --- de Sainte-Maure .  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the testament of [her brother] “Guillelmus de S. Maura decanus Turonensis”, dated 17 Jan 1334 (O.S.?), which bequeathed property to [her daughter] “...a sa nièce Isabelle de Palluau” and named as executors [her son] “...Pierre de Palluau son neveu[924].  Père Anselme states that she was “Iseul ou Isabeau de Sainte Maure, dame de Bellefontaine” who married firstly “Pierre de Paluau seigneur de Montresor et de Luçay” and secondly “Pierre de la Jaille avec lequel elle vivoit en 1373 et 1375[925].  This suggestion is improbable from a chronological point of view: her son was presumably adult when named executor of his maternal uncle’s testament, placing his birth to [1310] at the latest and indicating that the person named in 1373 was unlikely to be his mother.  One of the documents on which Anselme relied was presumably the following: “Iseult de Sainte-Maure jadis veuve de messire Pierre de Paluau chevalier seigneur de Montrésor, et depuis remariée à Jean de la Jaille chevalier” purchased a chapel jointly with “Geoffroy de Paluau chevalier seigneur de la Motte sous-Paluau” by charter dated 1377[926].  This charter indicates the existence of two branches of the Palluau family.  It is likely that the daughter of Pierre [I] de Sainte-Maure married a member of the la Motte-sous-Palluau branch, the wife of Pierre de Palluau Seigneur de Montrésor belonging to a later Sainte-Maure generation as suggested below.  m --- de Palluau, son of ---. 

g)         [ISABELLE de Sainte-Maure (-after 1347).  Père Anselme says that “on la dit fille de Guillaume seigneur de Sainte-Maure et de Jeanne de Rancon” and records her marriage[927].  The chronology is unfavourable for a daughter of Guillaume [III] de Saint-Maure (born [1215/25]) to have married a husband who was still active in 1341.  It appears more likely that Isabelle, if she was a member of the Sainte-Maure family, was the daughter of Pierre [I] de Sainte-Maure Seigneur de Montgaugier.  Dame de Belle-Fontaine.  m PHILIPPE de Prie Seigneur de Prie, de Moulins-en-Berry, de Buzançois et de Montpoupon, Sénéchal de Beaucaire et de Nîmes, son of --- (-[1341/47]).]

1.         PIERRE Trousseau (-before 12 May 1341).  Seigneur de Lannoy, de Veretz en Touraine, et de Châteaux en Anjou (now Château La Vallière, dèpartement Indre-et-Loire[928]).  His date of death is indicated by the letter from Philippe VI King of France to Robert de Dreux Seigneur de Bû appointing him “pour gérer les biens de Pierre Trosselli, son neveu [=petit-fils], fils de feu Pierre Trosselli jadis seigneur de Castris notre chambellan[929]m firstly ---.  The name of Pierre’s first wife is not known.  m secondly (before 1328) ISABELLE de Dreux, daughter of ROBERT [III] de Dreux Seigneur de Bû & his first wife Beatrix de Coulandon (-[before 1354]).  A charter dated 14 Jun 1328 confirmed that Pierre Troussel chevalier chambellans nostre sire le Roy et...Ysabeau de Dreus sa fame“ received annual revenue “en la ville de Sainct Brice...de l´heritage ladite madame Ysabeau[930].  “Pierre Troussiau Seigneur de Launoy Troussiau et de Verez“ granted property to “Guillaume Trousseau son aisné fuiz de sa permiere femme” in view of the rights of “les enfans nez et à naistre dudit pere et de Ysabeau de Dreues à present sa femme” by charter dated Aug 1328[931].  It is difficult to know whether “les enfans nez...” should be interpreted literally to indicate that Isabelle and her husband already had children at that date, or whether the phrase merely constitutes the formula normally used in such documents to cover all eventualities relating to the couple’s children.  Pierre & his first wife had one child: 

a)         GUILLAUME Trousseau (-after 8 Mar 1354).  “Pierre Troussiau Seigneur de Launoy Troussiau et de Verez“ granted property to “Guillaume Trousseau son aisné fuiz de sa permiere femme” in view of the rights of “les enfans nez et à naistre dudit pere et de Ysabeau de Dreues à present sa femme” by charter dated Aug 1328[932]Seigneur de Veretz en Touraine.  Guillaume Troussel chevalier sire de Verez en Touraine...et...Marguerite de Bauçay sa femme“ sold property from “la succession de feu...Pierre Troussel sire de Chastiaulx iadis son pere” to “Thibaut sires de Mathefelon et de Durestal chevalier et conseiller du Roy et à...Beatrix de Dreux sa femme” by charter dated 8 Mar 1353 (O.S.?)[933]m MARGUERITE de Bauçay, daughter of --- (-after 8 Mar 1354).  She is named in the 8 Mar 1353 (O.S.) charter of her husband.  Her precise parentage has not been ascertained.  Guillaume & his wife had one child:
