Two siblings:

1.         GAUTHIER (-26 Feb 891)Bishop of Orléans 869.  According to Gallia Christiana, Gauthier [I] Archbishop of Sens was the nephew of Gauthier Bishop of Orléans[5], but the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified. 

2.         --- .  m ---.  Children: 

a)         GAUTHIER [I] (-15 Nov 923, bur Sens Saint-Pierre)Archbishop of Sens 887.  The Annales Vedastini record the death in 887 of “Everardus Senonensis episcopus” and the succession of “Waltherus iuvenis[6].  Regino records the death in 888 of “Everhardus...[Senonis] metropolita” and the appointment of “Waltharius nepos Waltharii Aurelianensis urbis episcopi[7].  The Chronicon archiepiscoporum Senonensium records that "Galterus I…majoris ecclesie Senonensis canonicus" was elected archbishop of Sens "mense martio"[8].  The Annales Sanctæ Columbæ Senonensis record that "Gualterio" was installed as archbishop "IV Non Apr" after the death "Kal Feb" in 886 of "Evrardo episcopo"[9].  The Annales Sanctæ Columbæ Senonensis record that "Gualterio archiepiscopo Senonum" anointed "Rothbertus princeps" in opposition to "Karolum" in 922[10].  The Annales Sanctæ Columbæ Senonensis record that "Gualterio archiepiscopo Senonum" anointed "Rhodulfus" in 922 and died "XVII Kal Dec" in the same year[11]

b)         [--- .]  Maurice Chaume identifies Aubry [I] Vicomte d´Orléans (see the document CENTRAL FRANCE NOBILITY) as the father of Gauthier [II] Archbishop of Sens, assuming therefore that he was the brother of Geoffroy and Betton who are shown above[12]m ---.  One child: 

i)          GAUTHIER [II] (-928, bur Sens Saint-Pierre)Archbishop of Sens 924.  The Chronicon archiepiscoporum Senonensium names "Galterus II, nepos prioris" and records his death in 928, and his burial "in cœnobio B. Petri juxta avunculum suum"[13]

 

 

1.         ADALDUS (-932).  Archbishop of Sens 927. 

 

 

1.         GUILLAUME [I] (-Aug 938).  Archbishop of Sens 932.

 

 

1.         GERLAN (-Aug 954, bur Auxerre Saint-Germain).  Monk at Auxerre Saint-Germain.  Archbishop of Sens 939. 

 

 

1.         HILDEMAN (-Aug 959).  Archbishop of Sens 954.

 

 

1.         ARCHAMBAUD, son of [ROBERT de Vermandois Comte de Troyes & his wife Adelais [Wera] de Chalon] (-29 Aug 968, bur Sens Saint-Pierre-le-Vif)Archbishop of Sens 959.  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records that “Archembaldus” was installed as archbishop “V Kal Jul”, in 959 from the context[14].  According to Gallia Christiana[15], Archambaud Archbishop of Sens was the son of Robert Comte de Troyes and his wife Adelais de Bourgogne.  This may be based on the Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis which records the death “in…mense Augusto” (in 968 from the context) of “pater ipsius Rotbertus…vir nobilis”, referring to archbishop Archambaud[16], assuming that this refers to Robert Comte de Troyes whose activities are recorded earlier in the same source.  However, the chronology is unfavourable for this parentage to be correct.  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records the death “IV Kal Sep” (in 968 from the context) of “Archembaldus Archiepiscopus…adhuc iuvenis” and his burial “in basilica beati Petri[17].  Although stated to be “iuvenis” when he died, he must have been a young child when installed as archbishop if the estimated dates of marriage and birth of the members of Comte Robert´s family are correct.  His extreme youth at the time of his appointment is not commented on in the sources so far consulted.  In any case, the name Archambaud is not otherwise found in the family of the comtes de Vermandois, which also suggests that the suggested parentage might not be correct. 

 

 

1.         ANASTASIUS, son of AUGER Seigneur de "Pruvinum" & his wife (-Jan 977).  Archbishop of Sens 969. 

 

 

1.         --- m --- de Sens, daughter of FROMOND [I] Vicomte de Sens & his wife ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the Chronico Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis which names "domnus Sewinus magnæ nobilitatis vir ex sorore nepos ipsius Rainaldi"[18].  Three children: 

a)         SEWIN (-17 Oct 999, bur Sens Saint-Pierre-le-Vif, transferred 1278 to Sens Cathedral).  The Chronico Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis names "domnus Sewinus magnæ nobilitatis vir ex sorore nepos ipsius Rainaldi"[19]Archbishop of Sens 978.  The Historia Francorum Senonensis records the death “XV Kal Nov” of “Seguinus metropolitanus episcopus[20].  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records the death “999 XVI Kal Nov” of “Seuvinus Archiepiscopus” and his burial in “Monasterii Sancti Petri[21]

b)         ISEMBARD (-13 Apr 978).  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records the death “Id Apr” of “Isembardus miles, frater ipsius Archiepiscopi”, in the same year as his brother was installed as archbishop[22]

c)         daughter .  Her parentage is confirmed by the Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis which names “Abbatum Rainardum suum nepotem ex sorore…monachum beatæ Columbæ” in reference to Archbishop Sewin[23]m ---.  Two children: 

i)          RENARD (-1015).  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis names “Abbatum Rainardum suum nepotem ex sorore…monachum beatæ Columbæ” when recording that Archbishop Sewin appointed him as abbot and to oversee the restoration of “Cœnobium beati Petri[24].  Another passage in the Chronicon names “Abbas Rainardus…nepos eiusdem archiepiscopi” when recording that he restored “claustrum sancti Petri quod Archembaldus destruxerat”, starting the work in the same year as the death of Lothaire King of France (986)[25].  It is not entirely clear from the sentence whether “eiusdem archiepiscopi” refers to Archbishop Sewin (who is named in the previous sentence) or to his predecessor Archbishop Archambaud (who is named in the same sentence, but not as “archiepiscopus”).  It appears more likely that Renaud was nepos only of Archbishop Sewin, as the possible relationship between the abbot and Archambaud is not referred to elsewhere in the text.  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records the death in 1015 of “Rainardus Abbas Monasterii S. Petri Vivi[26]

Chapter 6.    BISHOPS of ORLEANS

 

 

 

1.         AGIOBishop of Orléans .  Flodoard´s Historia Remensis Ecclesiæ records the presence in 853 (“Hincmarus anno sui episcopatus VII”) at the synod at Soissons of “Wenilone Sennense archiepiscopo, Amalrico Turonense, Teoderico Cameracense episcopo, Rothado Suessonico, Lupo Cathalaunense, Immone Noviomagense, Erpuino Silvanectense, Erminfrido Belvacense, Pardulo Laudunense, Hilmerado Ambianense, Hucberto Meldense, Agio Aurelianense, Prudentio Trecasino, Hermanno Nivernense, Iona Augustudense, Godelsado Cavillonense, Dodone Andagavense, Guntberto Ebroicense, Hildebranno Sagense, Rigboldo Remorum corepiscopo[223]

 

 

1.         GAUTHIER, son of --- (-26 Feb 891)Bishop of Orléans 869.  "Heccardus comes" placed his assets at the disposal of testamentary executors, by undated charter, to be distributed as specified included the following bequests:  various decorative and precious objects to “Richildi…Gerbaldo...Walane episcopo [Wala Bishop of Auxerre]...Raganfrido episcopo [Bishop of Meaux]...Ansegiso archiepiscopo [Archbishop of Sens]...Waltario episcopo [Bishop of Orléans]...[224].  Regino records the death in 888 of “Everhardus...[Senonis] metropolita” and the appointment of “Waltharius nepos Waltharii Aurelianensis urbis episcopi[225].   

 

 

1.         FOULQUESBishop of Orléans .  “...Fulco Aurelianensis episcopus...” subscribed the charter dated to [1008] under which Robert II King of France confirmed donations to Saint-Denis[226]

 

 

1.         THIERRY, son of --- (-Tours 27 Jan [1016/24, bur Tours Saint-Michel)Bishop of Orléans .  The Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records that “Theodericus Episcopus Aurelianensis” resigned his bishopric, dated to [1016/24] from the context, retired to “Senonas in ecclesia B. Petri” where he had been “nutritus” during the abbacy of “Rainardi Abbatis sui avunculi”, and died “ad castrum Tornodorense…VI Kal Feb” and was buried “in basilica sancti Michaelis Archangeli[227].

 

 

1.         ODOLRIC, son of RAINARD Seigneur de Pithiviers & his second wife Heloise --- (-[1033]).  The Vita of St Gregory Archbishop of Nikopolis records "nobilis matrona Allvisa…patre suo Reynardo" in "Pithiueris" as parents of "Odolricum…Aurelianensis…episcopus", specifying that Odolric was "unigenitum suum" in relation to his mother[228].  Labande confirms that Odolric was the son of Rainard de Broyes seigneur de Pithiviers and his wife Héloise[229]Bishop of Orléans [1022].  "Odolricus Aurelianorum episcopus…et frater meus Isembardus" confirmed possessions of Chartres Saint-Père "in pago Dunensi in loco…Ursi Villaris" by charter dated to before 1028[230].  A charter dated 1028 of Robert II King of France, confirming donations to Notre-Dame de Colombes, names "Aurelianensium præsul Odolricus" and "iamdicti Odolrici præsulis avunculus Rogerius Belvacensis episcopus"[231]

 

 

[Two] siblings: 

1.         ISEMBART (-[1062/63]).  Du Chesne states that "Isembart evesque d´Orleans apres Odolric semble avoir esté son nepueu, c´est à dire fils d´Isembart son frere" adding "a quoy ce nom d´Isembart, le temps et la succession en l´evesché conviennent tres bien"[232].  It does not appear that the relationship is confirmed by any primary source.  The name "Isembart" suggests that he was related to his predecessor on the paternal side of the family.  The possibilities are therefore that Du Chesne was correct in his supposition, or that Bishop Isembart was the son of an otherwise unrecorded sister of Bishop Odolric, or that he was the grandson of a sibling of Bishop Odolric´s father.  Bishop of Orléans 1033. 

2.         [--- .  As noted below, Du Chesne draws the conclusion that Haderic was the son of Hugues [I] "Bardoul" because he called his predecessor Bishop Isembart "oncle".  However, this is evidently not the only possibility as Haderic could have been the son of an otherwise unrecorded brother or sister of Hugues, and an even more remote relation if "oncle" was used in an extended sense.  The absence of members of the Broyes family from the two charters which are quoted below suggests that Bishop Haderic and his two siblings were not the sons of Hugues [I].  m ---.]  [Three children:] 

a)         ISEMBART (-[after 7 Apr 1080]).  "Domnus…Wido cognomento Largus" donated property "predium quod sinjacet Sinaquis inter Pitueris castrum et Dadonis villam" to Cluny to found a church "cunctis Pitueris castri", with the consent of "…domnus Hadericus, qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus atque Hysimbardus frater eius, domnus Wido abbas…et Gaufredus atque Ulricus nepotes eorum, et Albertus nobilis miles, uxoris filiorumque suorum", by charter dated to [1070], subscribed by "…Haderici clerici qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus, Hisimbardi fratris eius, domni Guidonis abbatis et Gaufredi militis nepotum Haderici et Isembardi, Gibaldi pueri nepotis eorum, Alberti militis, Gaufredi militis, Isimbardi fratris eius…"[233].  Philippe I King of France confirmed the donation of "Pitueris ecclesiam" to Cluny made by "Hadericus clericus, sanctæ Aurelianensis æcclesiæ filius et frater eius Isembardus miles et nepotes eorum…Cluniacensis monachus…Wido, abbas Sancti Benedicti super Padum, et fratres eius Gaufridus et Oudalricus miles, cum fratre suo Walterio…" by charter dated 7 Apr 1080[234]

b)         HADERIC (-[after 7 Apr 1080]).  La Saussaye records that Haderic succeeded "Ysambardo avunculo suo" as bishop of Orléans[235].  Du Chesne states that "Haderic succeda en l´evesché d´Orleans à Isembart, lequel il qualifie son oncle par l´acte du serment qu´il presta" in 1063, adding that "ce qui me fait presumer qu´il esoit fils de Hugues Bardoul et frere de Barthelemy"[236].  It is also possible that Haderic was the son of an otherwise unrecorded sister of Hugues [I] "Bardoul".  Bishop of Orléans 1063, deposed 1067.  "Domnus…Wido cognomento Largus" donated property "predium quod sinjacet Sinaquis inter Pitueris castrum et Dadonis villam" to Cluny to found a church "cunctis Pitueris castri", with the consent of "…domnus Hadericus, qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus atque Hysimbardus frater eius, domnus Wido abbas…et Gaufredus atque Ulricus nepotes eorum, et Albertus nobilis miles, uxoris filiorumque suorum", by charter dated to [1070], subscribed by "…Haderici clerici qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus, Hisimbardi fratris eius, domni Guidonis abbatis et Gaufredi militis nepotum Haderici et Isembardi, Gibaldi pueri nepotis eorum, Alberti militis, Gaufredi militis, Isimbardi fratris eius…"[237].  Philippe I King of France confirmed the donation of "Pitueris ecclesiam" to Cluny made by "Hadericus clericus, sanctæ Aurelianensis æcclesiæ filius et frater eius Isembardus miles et nepotes eorum…Cluniacensis monachus…Wido, abbas Sancti Benedicti super Padum, et fratres eius Gaufridus et Oudalricus miles, cum fratre suo Walterio…" by charter dated 7 Apr 1080[238]

iii)        --- (-before [1070]).  m ---.  One child: 

(a)       GIBALD (-[before 7 Apr 1080]).  "Domnus…Wido cognomento Largus" donated property "predium quod sinjacet Sinaquis inter Pitueris castrum et Dadonis villam" to Cluny to found a church "cunctis Pitueris castri", with the consent of "…domnus Hadericus, qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus atque Hysimbardus frater eius, domnus Wido abbas…et Gaufredus atque Ulricus nepotes eorum, et Albertus nobilis miles, uxoris filiorumque suorum", by charter dated to [1070], subscribed by "…Haderici clerici qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus, Hisimbardi fratris eius, domni Guidonis abbatis et Gaufredi militis nepotum Haderici et Isembardi, Gibaldi pueri nepotis eorum, Alberti militis, Gaufredi militis, Isimbardi fratris eius…"[244].  It is probable that Gibald died before 7 Apr 1080, the date of the confirmation charter in which he is not named. 

iv)       ODOLRIC (-after 7 Apr 1080).  Philippe I King of France confirmed the donation of "Pitueris ecclesiam" to Cluny made by "Hadericus clericus, sanctæ Aurelianensis æcclesiæ filius et frater eius Isembardus miles et nepotes eorum…Cluniacensis monachus…Wido, abbas Sancti Benedicti super Padum, et fratres eius Gaufridus et Oudalricus miles, cum fratre suo Walterio…" by charter dated 7 Apr 1080[245]

[Three] siblings, probably closely related to the previous family group as they are all named in the same two charters: 

1.         GUY (-[after 7 Apr 1080]).  "Domnus…Wido cognomento Largus" donated property "predium quod sinjacet Sinaquis inter Pitueris castrum et Dadonis villam" to Cluny to found a church "cunctis Pitueris castri", with the consent of "filii sui uxorisque…domnus Hadericus, qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus atque Hysimbardus frater eius, domnus Wido abbas…et Gaufredus atque Ulricus nepotes eorum, et Albertus nobilis miles, uxoris filiorumque suorum", by charter dated to [1070], subscribed by "Rainerii Aurelianensis episcopi, Widonis Largi, Tetbaldi filii eius, Ulrici nepotis eorum cum Walterio fratre suo, Haderici clerici qui fuit Aurelianensis episcopus, Hisimbardi fratris eius, domni Guidonis abbatis et Gaufredi militis nepotum Haderici et Isembardi, Gibaldi pueri nepotis eorum, Alberti militis, Gaufredi militis, Isimbardi fratris eius…"[248].  Philippe I King of France confirmed the donation of "Pitueris ecclesiam" to Cluny made by "…et Wido Largus atque filius eius Tetbaldus, necnon etiam Albertus, filius Tescelini Felicis, cum uxore sua Belina et filiis suis" by charter dated 7 Apr 1080, subscribed by "…Alberti filii Tescelini, Walterii de Sancto Salomone, Maynardi nepotis Walterii, Beline uxoris Valterii…"[249]m ---.  The name of Guy´s wife is not known.  Guy & his wife had one child:

3.         --- (-before [1070]).  m ---.  Two children:
