A.      COMTES de BOURGES

A.      COMTES de GÂTINAIS

 

 

The counts of Gâtinais inherited the county of Anjou in 1067, an unforeseen result of a dynastic marriage in [1035].  However, Gâtinais was was ceded to Philippe I King of France in 1068 by Foulques IV "le Réchin" Comte d’Anjou to obtain the king’s recognition of his accession as count after he deposed and imprisoned his brother Geoffroy III "le Barbu" Comte d’Anjou et de Gâtinais[172].  Thereafter it remained part of the domaine royale of the Capetian kings of France.  

 

 

1.         GEOFFROY [I] de Château-Landon, son of --- (-after Nov 991)Seigneur de Château-Landon.  Comte de Gâtinais"Gausfridi comitis Wastinensis" subscribed the charter dated to [985/87] under which "Teduinus" donated "alodum…Vileta…in pago Wastinensis" to the abbey of Saint-Père de Chartres for the souls of "patris sui Adelardi et matris suæ Eldegardis"[173]m as her first husband, BEATRIX de Mâcon, daughter of AUBRY II Comte de Mâcon & his wife Ermentrude de Roucy.  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres…ex Letaldo, Albericus…ex Alberico Beatrix, ex Beatrice Gosfrido de Castello Landonensi"[174]André de Fleury’s Vita Gauzlini records that “Albericus comes Nandonensium” donated “Alodum in Altissiodorensi territorio” to Fleury and that “Beatrix Nandonensium comitissa” donated “prædia[175].  She married secondly Hugues du Perche, her second marriage being confirmed by the charter of her son "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum" dated 26 May 1028 (see below) approved by "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo"[176].  Geoffroy [I] & his wife had one child: 

a)         AUBRY [Alberic] de Gâtinais (-before 8 Mar 1030).  Francon Bishop of Paris agreed with "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum", concerning a prior grant by the bishop's predecessor to "Gosfrido comiti Landonensi castri", with the approval of "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo", by charter dated 26 May 1028[177]He succeeded as Comte de Gâtinais, Seigneur de Château-Landon.  André de Fleury’s Vita Gauzlini records that “Albericus comes Nandonensium” donated “Alodum in Altissiodorensi territorio” to Fleury and that “Beatrix Nandonensium comitissa” donated “prædia[178]. 

 

 

1.         [GAUTHIER (-after [997]).  Abbon abbé de Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire requested Pope Gregory V to order "…Quauz---, nepos Wal--- comitis de Castro Nantonis" to cease his activities (presumably against the monastery) under threat of excommunication, by letter dated [997][179].  Edouard de Saint-Phalle suggests that "Wal--- comitis…" was a second husband of Beatrix de Mâcon, widow of Geoffroy [I] Comte de Gâtinais, before her marriage to Hugues du Perche.  He records that Ferdinand Lot first suggested that "Wal--- comitis" should be identified with Gauthier [I] Comte d'Amiens, de Vexin et de Valois[180], although this seems far-fetched assuming it is correct that Comte Gauthier [I] was born before 925.  Settipani suggests that it is more probable that Gauthier Comte de Gâtinais was the younger brother of Comte Geoffroy [I], who inherited the county on the death of his brother because the latter's son was a minor[181]

2.         [--- .  m ---.]  [One child]: 

a)         [GEOFFROY [Quauz---] .  Abbon abbé de Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire requested Pope Gregory V to order "…Quauz---, nepos Wal--- comitis de Castro Nantonis" to cease his activities (presumably against the monastery) under threat of excommunication, by letter dated [997][182].  Edouard de Saint-Phalle suggests that "Quauz---" was Geoffroy Comte de Joigny, because of the donation by the latter's son, Gilduin Archbishop of Sens, to the same abbey.  Settipani suggests that he was an older son of Geoffroy [I] Comte de Gâtinais who rebelled against the authority of his uncle after attaining the age of majority[183].  However, this does not appear chronologically possible as the marriage of the parents of Beatrix de Mâcon, wife of Comte Geoffroy [I], is dated to (Mar 966/14 Jan 971] (see BURGUNDY DUCHY), which would mean that her sons by this marriage would be unlikely to have attained the age of majority before the early years of the 11th century at the earliest.]  same person as…?  GEOFFROY de Joigny (-[6 Mar], after Nov 1035).

HUGUES du Perche, son of FULCOIS Comte de Mortagne & his wife Melisende Vicomtesse de Châteaudun His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1065] under which "Rotrochus comes de Mauritania et mea uxor Adeliz et filii nostri Rotrochus et ceteri nostri infantes" donated property to Saint-Vincent du Mans, for the anniversary of "avi mei Fulcuich comitis et avunculi mei Hugonis et patris mei vicecomitis Gaufridi"[184]

same person as…?  HUGUES du Perche (-after [1000]).  No proof of this co-identity has been found, but it would be chronologically plausible. 

m ([1000]) as her second husband, BEATRIX de Mâcon, widow of GEOFFROY Comte de Gâtinais, daughter of AUBRY II Comte de Mâcon & his wife Ermentrude de Roucy.  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres…ex Letaldo, Albericus…ex Alberico Beatrix, ex Beatrice Gosfrido de Castello Landonensi"[185]Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter of her son "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum" dated 26 May 1028 (see below) approved by "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo"[186]

Hugues & his wife had two children: 

1.         GEOFFROY [II] "Ferréol" de Gâtinais (-30 Apr [1043/45])His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 26 May 1028 under which Francon Bishop of Paris agreed with "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum", concerning a prior grant by the bishop's predecessor to "Gosfrido comiti Landonensi castri", with the approval of "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo"[187].  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records yet another parentage, stating that "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres…ex Letaldo, Albericus…ex Alberico Beatrix, ex Beatrice Gosfrido de Castello Landonensi, ex Gaufrido Gaufridus et Fulco presens"[188]His name is confirmed by a charter (undated?) under which [his son] Geoffroy III Comte d’Anjou donated fishing rights on the Mayenne river to Angers Saint-Serge, for the souls of “Geoffroy son père et de Geoffroy Martel son oncle[189]Comte de Gâtinais, Seigneur de Château-Landon.  The fact that Aubry Comte de Gâtinais and Geoffroy [II] Comte de Gâtinais were two different individuals, the inevitable conclusion from the two sources cited, is somewhat clouded by the Historia Comitum Andegavorum which records that "Gaufridus Martellus…nepotibus suis" were "filiis Adhelæ sororis suæ et Alberici comitis de Gastinais"[190], and by the Chronicle of Saint-Maxence which names "Alberici Contracti comitis de Gastina" as father of "Goffredus et Fulco Rechin"[191]

Two brothers: 

1.         ADAM [I] de Beaumont (-[24 Jun 1241/Jul 1248])Seigneur de Beaumont-en-Gâtinais.  “Adam dominus Bellimontis" renounced rights over “viariam Ausiaci” in favour of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire, with the consent of “Joanne fratre meo”, by charter dated Apr 1207 (O.S.?), confirmed by separate charter also dated Apr 1207 by his suzerain “Galterus dominus Nemosii[193]"A. domnus Bellimontis" confirmed the foundation of a chapel by "dominus R. Malus Vicinus", with the consent of "Isabelle uxoris mee", by charter dated 1211[194]"Adam de Bellomonte" donated land “que fuit defuncti Acis de Montibus…in feodo meo” to Vaux de Cernay, with the consent of “uxore mea Helisabeth”, by charter dated 1214[195]The Histoire des ducs de Normandie records “mareschaus de l’ost Adans de Biaumont, qu on apieloit en sornon Brostesinge” in the army sent by Louis (the future Louis VIII King of France) to invade England in Dec 1215[196].  A charter dated 3 Nov 1226 lists the nobles at the coronation of King Louis IX, including “...Adam de Bellomonte, Johannes de Bellomonte...[197]Contributions towards military expenditure in the county of Poitou, dated 24 Jun 1241, record donations made by “Adam juvenis de Bello Monte” followed by “Adam de Bello Monte pater[198]m (contract Aug 1211) ISABELLE Mauvoisin, daughter of ROBERT [III] Mauvoisin Seigneur d’Aulnay & his wife Cécile de Chevreuse (-after 1238).  Pierre de Nemours Bishop of Paris confirmed the marriage contract between "Robertus Malus Vicinus...Isabel filiam suam" and “consanguineo nostro Ade de Bellomonte”, with the consent of “Sicilie uxoris sue”, is dated Aug 1211[199]"A. domnus Bellimontis" confirmed the foundation of a chapel by "dominus R.

a)         ADAM [II] de Beaumont (-after 24 Jun 1241).  Contributions towards military expenditure in the county of Poitou, dated 24 Jun 1241, record donations made by “Adam juvenis de Bello Monte” followed by “Adam de Bello Monte pater[203].  It is assumed that Adam was his father’s oldest son, named after his father.  It is not known whether he survived his father: no primary source has been found in which Adam [II] is named seigneur de Beaumont.  m ---.  The name of Adam’s wife is not known.  Adam [II] & his wife had children: 

i)          PIERRE de Beaumont (-before 11 Jul 1272).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  However, his succession as seigneur de Beaumont indicates his seniority in the family.  It is therefore expected that he was the son of Adam [II], oldest son of Adam [I].  The chronology does not favour his being the son of Adam [I], as shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[204]Seigneur de Beaumont-en-Gâtinais.  The bishop of Paris accepted the homage of "dominus Petrus de Bello Monte miles", as “heres proximior domini Guillelmi de Bello-Montis militis”, for “terram…sitam Parisius…Taroene”, by charter dated 17 Mar 1264[205]Conte di Montescaglioso e Alba [1265].  "Dominus Petrus de Bello Monte comes Cambellani in Apulia" swore homage to the bishop of Paris for “la terre de Taroenne” by charter dated 7 Feb 1272[206]The date of his death is established by the marriage contract of his two daughters dated 11 Jul 1272 in which he is named as deceased.  m firstly JEANNE, daughter of --- (-before Jan 1266).  "Nobilis mulier domina Isabellis d’Auton relicta defuncti Radulfi d’Auton militis, quondam vidua" requested "villam de Blavo Monte", which “dominus Petrus de Bello Monte miles et Johanna eius uxor consanguinea dicte domine Isabellis” had sold to the Templars, from Notre-Dame de Paris, claiming that it belonged to her “de hereditate dicte Johanne uxoris dicti militis”, by charter dated Jan 1265(O.S.?)[207].  This charter demonstrates that Jeanne died childless, contrary to what is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[208]m secondly FILIPPA di Ceccano, daughter of ---.  "Philippa relicta defuncti Petri de Bello Monte comitis Cambellani" swore homage “pro se et quadam filia” to the bishop of Paris for “terra Morinensi” by charter dated 9 Aug 1273[209]Pierre & his second wife had [three] children:

(a)       MARGUERITE de Beaumont (-Marseille Mar 1307)A charter dated 11 Jul 1272 records the proposed marriages of “Iohannem de Monte forti comitem Squillacensem et Symon fratrem eius” and “nobili quondam Petrum de Bellomonte...duabus filiabus eiusdem Petri...maiore natu [...Iohanni]...et minore natu dicto Symoni[210]"Johannes dictus de Monte Forti comes" swore homage “ratione uxoris sue filie defuncti quondam Petri de Bello Monte comitis Cambellani” to the bishop of Paris for property “in terra Morinensi” by charter dated 14 Nov 1273[211]Her parentage and first marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1290 under which “Johannes de Monteforti, Squillacii et Montiscanosi comes, ac regni Sicilie camerarius et Margarita uxor mea” confirmed a bequest by “quondam dominus Petrus, dominus Bellimontis…socer noster et pater prefate Margarete” to the abbey of Saint-Antoine[212]Minieri Riccio records the second marriage, citing documents in the Angevin registers at Naples[213].  Assuming that he is correct, Robert [II] presumably married his second wife to reinforce his claim to restoration to Squillace, believing that the previous count’s widow retained some residual right to the county.  m firstly (Betrothed 11 Jul 1272, before 14 Nov 1273) as his third wife, JEAN [II] de Montfort Conte di Squillace e Montescaglioso, son of PHILIPPE de Montfort-l'Amaury Seigneur de Castres et de la Ferté-Alais & his wife Jeanne de Levis (-Foggia [1/3] Dec 1300, bur Foggia, transferred 29 Jun 1305 to Castres).  m secondly ([1303/06]) as his second wife, ROBERT [II] de Dreux Seigneur de Bû [Capet], son of ROBERT de Dreux Seigneur de Bû & his second wife Isabelle de Villebéon ([1263/65]-after 1303)

(b)       [--- de Beaumont .  A charter dated 11 Jul 1272 records the proposed marriages of “Iohannem de Monte forti comitem Squillacensem et Symon fratrem eius” and “nobili quondam Petrum de Bellomonte...duabus filiabus eiusdem Petri...maiore natu [...Iohanni]...et minore natu dicto Symoni[214].  It seems likely that this daughter was the same person as Philippa who is shown below.  Betrothed (11 Jul 1272) to SIMON de Montfort, son of PHILIPPE de Montfort-l'Amaury Seigneur de Castres et de la Ferté-Alais & his wife Jeanne de Levis (-Apulia 24 Jan 1275, bur Castres).] 

(c)       PHILIPPA de Beaumont ([1271/72]-after 1317).  She is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln as her father’s daughter by his first marriage[215].  From a chronological point, this seems unlikely to be correct.  Marguerite (see above) was their father’s oldest unmarried daughter in 1272 as shown above.  The parents of Philippa’s first husband were married in 1270, placing his birth a year or two later.  It seems unlikely that Philippa would have been much older than her husband, which would place her birth in [1271/72].  In addition, the charter dated Jan 1265, in which Pierre’s first wife’s heir is named, shows that she died childless.  Philippa would presumably have been named after her mother.  As noted above, it is likely that she was the same person as her father’s younger daughter who was betrothed 11 Jul 1272 to Simon de Montfort.  The primary sources which confirm her two marriages have not been identified.  m firstly GEOFFROY [II] de Joinville Signore d’Alife, son of GEOFFROY de Joinville Seigneur de Briquenay & his wife Mabile de Lezinnes (-Brindisi 1297).  m secondly RENAUD [II] Comte de Dammartin, son of JEAN [II] de Trie Comte de Dammartin & his second wife Yolande de Dreux (-1316). 

ii)         DREUX de Beaumont (-[14 Nov 1276/30 Mar 1277]).  Dreux, as brother of Pierre, subscribed the charter dated Jan 1267 which records the renunciation of rights over “la terre de Blaumont” in favour of the Templars[216]Marshal of Charles I King of Sicily.  m firstly EUDOXIA [Marie] de Cayeux, daughter of ANSEAU [V] de Cayeux & his [third wife Evdokia Laskarina] (-before 1275).  Her parentage and marriage are shown by Champagne in a genealogical table but he cites no corresponding primary source[217].  If her parentage is correctly identified, her name suggests that she must have been born from her father’s marriage to Evdokia Laskarina.  It has not yet proved possible to estimate her birth year with any confidence as no precise information has been found about the chronology of her children.  She is named Marie in various secondary sources on the internet, but the primary source basis for this statement has not been identified.  Dame de Sainte-Geneviève.  m secondly (16 Sep 1275) AGNES de Stromoncourt, daughter of GUILLAUME de Stromoncourt Lord of Salona & his wife --- (-after 1279).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified. 

b)         GUILLAUME de Beaumont (-before 17 Mar 1264).  "Guillelmus et Johannes de Bellomonte milites" confirmed the donation of revenue “apud Mintriacum” to Saint-Antoine de Paris, made by “bone memorie Adam pater noster”, by charter dated Jul 1248[218]

D.      VICOMTES de CHÂTEAU-LANDON

 

 

LETAUD, son of HUGUES du Perche & his wife Beatrix de Mâcon (-after [1050]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 26 May 1028 under which Francon Bishop of Paris agreed with "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum", concerning a prior grant by the bishop's predecessor to "Gosfrido comiti Landonensi castri", with the approval of "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo"[286].  "…Letaldi militis…" witnessed a charter dated [1050] under which Bishop Isembard restored the customs of Beaulay to the abbey of Saint-Euverte d’Orléans[287], although it is possible that this signature relates to Létaud [II] see below. 

m ---.  The name of Létaud's wife is not known. 

Letaud & his wife had [one] child: 

1.         [LETAUD [II] (-after 1080).  "…Letaldi filiorumque suorum Fulconis et Godefridi…" witnessed charters dated [1076] and 1080 of the abbey of Saint-Pierre at Pithiviers[288].  The chronology dictates that Letaud [II] was a different person from Létaud [I], presumably his son, but no primary source has been identified which confirms that this is correct.]  m ---.  The name of Létaud's wife is not known.  Létaud [II] & his wife had two children:

a)         FOULQUES (-after 1122)"…Letaldi filiorumque suorum Fulconis et Godefridi…" witnessed charters dated [1076] and 1080 of the abbey of Saint-Pierre at Pithiviers[289]Vicomte de Château-Landon.  [1076]/[1126].  "Fulco vicecomes et filius eius Guillelmus, scilicet Guido Urso" confirmed a donation to the priory of Néronville by "Robertus Bonet" by charter dated to [1108/20], subscribed by "Rainaldus Pulcher…"[290].  The Continuatio of Aimon’s Historia records that Louis VI King of France bought "Moretum…et Castellarium, Boissas, Euram et Cambim" {Moret, Le Châtelet, Boësses, Yèvre, Chambon} from "Fulcone Vicecomite Wastinensi"[291].  The passage is undated, but Estournet dates the sale to "vers 1115"[292]"…Fulco vicecomes Castrilandonis et filii eius Willelmus et Guido…" approved a donation to the abbey of Rozoy by charter dated to after 1122[293]A charter dated to [1120] records the repentance of "Fulco vicecomes" for the harm he caused to the priory of Néronville[294]m (before 1098) BIOTE de Montlhéry, daughter of [GUY [II] "le Rouge" de Montlhéry Comte de Rochefort & his first wife Elisabeth ---].   Her parentage and marriage are confirmed only by a document written in 1630 which names "Fédéric vicomte de Gastinois, fils de Guy…fils d’un autre Guy…vicomte de Gastinois nay de Biote de Rochefort, sœur de Guy II comte de Rochefort et de Hugues de Crécy"[295]Foulques & his wife had three children: 

i)          GUILLAUME (-after [1108/20]).  "Fulco vicecomes et filius eius Guillelmus, scilicet Guido Urso" confirmed a donation to the priory of Néronville by "Robertus Bonet" by charter dated to [1108/20], subscribed by "Rainaldus Pulcher…"[296]same person as…?  GUILLAUME de Fessard (-after [1130/40]).  "…Guillelmus de Ferssarth" witnessed the charter dated to [1130/40] under which "Theobaldus de Nergi" donated property "in Villanova" to the priory of Néronville[297]Estournet suggests that the witness to this document was the same person as Guillaume, son of Foulques Vicomte de Château-Landon, and ancestor of the future vicomtes de Fessard[298].  He bases this on a declaration under which "vicecomes de Fessardo" was recognised as vassal of the French king in respect of rights held "apud Castrum Nantonis in vicecomitaria et in aliis" {Château-Landon}[299].  This is an interesting suggestion, but it is also possible that such rights were inherited from the family of the vicomtes de Château-Landon through the female line.

F.      SEIGNEURS de NEMOURS

 

 

Nemours is situated in Gâtinais, midway between Fontainebleau and Château-Landon, on the left bank of the river Loing.  According to Richemont, Nemours was founded in [1120/30] and started to flourish after a hospice was built to serve the needs of pilgrims who sought allegedly miraculous cures effected by relics which had been transported back from Palestine and housed in the village[399].  The history of Nemours was studied in detail by Richemond in the early 20th century[400].  The seigneurie de Nemours lay south of the seigneurie de Milly and north of the vicomté de Château-Landon[401].  The seigneurs de Nemours were appointed to important positions at the court of Louis VII King of France and members of the family received the highest ecclesiastical honours in the 12th and 13th centuries.  However, towards the end of the 13th century they were ruined by participation in the crusades, forced to sell their castles and renounce their positions, and fell into obscurity[402].  Nemours was sold to Philippe III King of France in 1276 by Philippe [III] de Nemours[403].  Nemours was elevated into a duché-pairie by Charles VI King of France in 1404.  It was first granted to the king of Navarre in exchange for territories in Champagne and Vexin, and was eventually inherited by a younger branch of the family of the Dukes of Savoy.  Nemours returned to the French crown in 1666. 

 

 

URSON, son of [FOULQUES Vicomte de Château-Landon & his wife Biote de Montlhéry] (-[Palestine 1147]).  His possible parentage is suggested by Richemond, based on the proximity of Nemours to Château-Landon, but he emphasises that there is no primary source which confirms that it is correct[404].  Richemond assumes that Urson was the first Seigneur de Nemours but states that there is no record of him either in contemporary chronicles or cartularies, although he adds that he and his son Hervé left on the Second Crusade in 1147 and both died during the expedition (without citing the corresponding primary source)[405]

m AVELINE de Monfaucon, daughter of --- de Monfaucon & his wife --- [de Châtillon-sur-Loing] ([1110/20]-).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which records that "principe Antiochie Renaldo" had a sister who was the mother of "Renaldum de Monte Falconis in Bituria et duas sorores illius", of whom one "Avelina de Traci" married "viro nobili Ursoni"[406]Dame de Tracy, which Richemond identifies as Treuzy near Nemours[407]

Urson & his wife had two children: 

1.         HERVE (-[Palestine 1147]).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Herveium et Avelinam Nemosii domnam" as children of "viro nobili Ursoni" and his wife "Avelina de Traci"[408]

2.         AVELINE ([1130/40]-1196)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Herveium et Avelinam Nemosii domnam" as children of "viro nobili Ursoni" and his wife "Avelina de Traci", adding that Aveline married "Galtero…camerario regis"[409].  Her birth date range is extrapolated from the marriage date of her second son.  Dame de Nemours.  m GAUTHIER de Villebéon, son of [--- Seigneur de La Chapelle-Gauthier & his wife Ameline ---] (-[23/25] Oct 1205, bur Barbeaux abbey).  Seigneur de Nemours.  Great chamberlain of France. 

 

 

GAUTHIER de Villebéon, son of [--- Seigneur de La Chapelle-Gauthier & his wife Ameline ---] (-[23/25] Oct 1205, bur Barbeaux abbey).  Richemond suggests that Gauthier de Villebéon was the same person as Gauthier, brother of Geoffroy Seigneur de La Chapelle-Gauthier, adding that this hypothesis provides the explanation for Gauthier’s brother Etienne being referred to as "La Chapelle" in primary sources[410].  This co-identity is also affirmed in the compilation of the cartulary of Néronville, without stating that it is based on any primary source[411].  According to Richemond, Gauthier probably inherited his fief of Villebéon, located near Nemours, from his mother, adding that it had been owned by the seigneurs de Chevry and enfeoffed by them to the sires du Bignon in the 12th century[412].  "Miles…Gaufridus de La Capeleta et Amelina mater eius" donated property to the priory of Néronville, with the consent of "Avelinæ uxoris prædicti Gaufredi et filiorum suprum Roberti et Petri" and "Rainardus de Gaazon et Gauterius frater Gaufredi et Robertus Clemens", by charter dated 1153[413]Seigneur de Nemours.  Chamberlain of France.  Louis VII King of France divided l’Essart-Nantier between the abbey of Barbeaux and "Galterium camerarium nostrum", with the consent of "Ludovicus vicecomes Miliduni, et Petrus de Curtis, sed et filii Galterii, Guillelmus, Philippus et Ursus, et Avelina vicecomitis soror", by charter dated [16 Apr/10 Nov] 1172[414].  "Galterus domini regis Francorum camerarius" donated "terram meam de Castellione" to the abbey of Saint-Victor, with the consent of "Avelina uxor mea…filii mei Philippus maior natu et Ursus", by charter dated 1174[415].  A charter dated 1190 records the confirmation by Philippe II King of France of the donation by "Galterius camerarius noster" to the church of Saint-Jean de Nemours, with the consent of "Aveline uxoris sue et liberorum suorum"[416].  A charter dated 1293 recalls the donation, in 1203, by "Galterii…regis Francorum Philippi camerarii" to Hôtel-Dieu de Nemours, for "uxoris meæ defunctæ Avelinæ" and for the soul of "uxoris meæ Persoisæ"[417].  "Galterius domini regis camerarius" granted compensation to the church of Aschères, with the consent of "uxoris mea Persoisa, meique heredes Galterius et Guido, eorumque uxores Margarita et Isabella", by charter dated Nov 1203[418].  "Galterius domini regis camerarius" donated revenue to Barbeaux abbey by charter dated Oct 1205[419]

Magloire“, under which [her son] “Robert de Dreux écuyer, fils de feu Robert jadis chevalier, seigneur de Beu et d’Isabeau jadis sa femme” declared before Simon Bishop of Chartres that he was 17 years old and that he “et sa sœur Isabeau”, as orphans after the deaths of their father and mother, were brought up with his own children by Robert [IV] Comte de Dreux et de Montfort[551]m [firstly] ([1260/62]) as his second wife, ROBERT de Dreux Seigneur de Bû, son of ROBERT [III] "Gasteblé" Comte de Dreux & his wife Eléonore dame de Saint-Valéry ([1217]-23 Jun, after 1265).  There are indications that Isabelle may have married secondly, as his second wife, Renaud [I] Seigneur de Dargies, son of Simon [I] Seigneur de Dargies & his wife Isabelle de Mello (-[19 Mar/Dec] 1269).  This is based on an, as yet, uncorroborated report that Renaud [I]’s wife was named Isabelle[552], read together with the 10 Jun 1302 Papal dispensation for the marriage of “nobili viro Auberto de Hangesto milite” [Aubert [VI] de Hangest Seigneur de Genlis] and “nobili muliere Agnete domina de Dargies” [the widow of Isabelle’s supposed son by this second marriage], because “quondam Reginaldus de Dargies olim vir predicte Agnetis” was related by 4o affinity to “ipsi Auberto[553].  The 4o affinity relationship between the two husbands of Agnes would result as her second husband was the grandson of Isabelle de Villebéon’s first cousin, Gauthier [IV] de Villebéon[554]

e)         ISABELLE de Villebéon dite La Chambellane (-25 Mar 1265).  Dame de la Chapelle-Gautier-en-Brie.  A charter dated 1 Mar 1262 (O.S.?) records an agreement between Ysabeau de Villebeon Dame de la Chapelle en Brie, veuve de feu Monsieur Mathieu Seigneur de Montmirail et d‘Oisy“ and “Monsieur Enguerran Sire de Coucy” regarding her dowry from property at “la Ferté-Ancoul, Raumesnil, Chasteauthierry, Challons et autres[555]"Ysabiaus dame de la Chapelle" confirmed an agreement with Barbeau abbey made during the lifetime of “Mahys chevaliers sires de Monmirail et d’Oysi mes sires”, confirmed by “mon...frere et seigneur monseigneur Pierre le Chambellan” by charter dated Jan 1265[556]The necrology of the Abbaye du Jard records the death "VIII Kal Apr" of "domine Ysabellis domine de Montemirabili"[557]m MATHIEU de Montmirail Châtelain de Cambrai, son of JEAN [I] de Montmirail & his wife Helvide de Dampierre (-14 Jan [or 16 Jun] 1262)Seigneur de Charly 1226.  Seigneur de la Ferté-Gaucher 1240.  Seigneur de Montmirail 1240.  Châtelain de Cambrai 1241. 

Adam [II] & his second wife had two children: 

f)          MATHIEU [II] de Villebéon (-[mid-]1270)m firstly PHILIPPOTTE, daughter of --- & his wife Hersende --- (-after 3 Oct 1266).  The testament of "domina Philippa uxor...domini Mathei militis domini Villebeonis, infirmitate detenta", dated 3 Oct 1266, made bequests to “domino Matheo marito suo” and named “defuncte Hersandis quondam matris sue[558]m secondly ([1267/68]) as her second husband, HELVIDE de Bormont, widow of GUY de Nanteuil-le-Haudouin Seigneur de Morcourt, daughter of ---.  Mathieu [II] & his first wife had one child: 

i)          MATHIEU [III] de Villebéon (-[20 Dec 1292/1300]).  Fragmentary accounts for 1276 record “de rachato domini Galteri de Tournenfuye, pro terra Mathæi de Villa Beonis” in “Baillivia Senonensis[559].  A charter dated 1277 records that, after the death of "Matheo de Villa Beonis milite", “Mahietus filius et heres ipsius” reached agreement with “Galterum [Cambellani nepotis quondam...Petri” and “relictam...Petri [Cambellani]” concerning payments due from his father[560]m (betrothed 1274) ISABELLE de La Broce, daughter of PIERRE de La Broce Seigneur de Langeais, chambellan & his wife Isabelle de Saint-Venant. 

g)         ADAM [III] de Villebéon (-28 Mar 1274, bur Jard).  "Petrus dictus Cambellanus miles" donated “partem Bosce eiusdem Ade de Montule et partem Guillemi fratris mei” to Jard, with the consent of "Ade fratris mei germani", by charter dated Jun 1248[561]The necrology of the Abbaye du Jard records the death "V Kal Apr" of "domini Ade cambellani dicti junioris"[562]

Chapter 3.    ORLEANS

 

 

A.      VICOMTES d'ORLEANS

 

 

The geographically extensive county of Orléans, at the heart of the area called Central France in the present document, was incorporated into the domaine royale of the Capetian kings with the accession of Hugues "Capet" in 987[563]

 

Europäischen Stammtafeln includes a more detailed proposed reconstruction of the early generations of the family of the Vicomtes d’Orléans which links them to the seigneurs de Montmorency (see the document PARIS REGION NOBILITY)[564].  The precise basis for the proposal has not yet been traced, but it is possible that it pivots around the undated charter (dated by Europäische Stammtafeln to 975[565]) of Saint-Aubin d’Angers which recites the history of land at Champigné-sur-Sarthe, recording that Geoffroy I "Grisegonelle", Comte d’Anjou from 958 to 987, brought "de pago Parisiacensi quendam Albericum consanguineum suum" to Anjou and granted him "omnem terram de Vieriis et capellam Sanctæ Mariæ Caritatis"[566].  "Albericum" has been identified as Aubry [I], possible brother of Bouchard [I] "le Barbu" de Montmorency, who it seems is identified by Europäische Stammtafeln as the same person as Bouchard [III] (shown below), who is in turn linked to Bouchard [II] de Bray-sur-Seine (also shown below).  The proposed reconstruction therefore depends on the cumulative correctness of several different speculative connections, in which case its practical worth appears limited. 

 

 

1.         AUBRY [I] .  Vicomte d'Orléans.  886.  m ---.  The name of Aubry's wife is not known.  The Gesta Episcoporum Autissiodorensium names "Betto…natione…Burgundie…Senonice urbis indigena" and "patre Alberico eque Burgundione editus, matre…Angela Francigena" when recording his election as Bishop of Auxerre[567], but the name "Angela" is atypical of the period.  Aubry & his wife had two children: 

a)         GEOFFROY (-after May 939).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Vicomte d'Orléans.  933/42.  Comte de Gâtinais.  "Gaufredi Aurelianensium Vicecomitis" subscribed a charter dated May 939 under which "Hugo dux Francorum" confirmed a donation by "Rotbertus" to "Monesterio sancti Juliani"[568]m ---.  The name of Geoffroy's wife is not known.  Geoffroy & his wife had three children: 

i)          [AUBRY [II] (-after 10 Jun 966).  The primary source which states that Aubry [II] was the son of Geoffroy has not been identified.  Vicomte d'Orléans"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…"[569].  "Alberici Aurelianensis vicecomitis" subscribed the charter dated 10 Jun 966 under which Geoffroy "Grisegonelle" Comte d'Anjou established the first abbot of Saint-Aubin at Angers[570].  Edouard de Saint-Phalle suggests the Aubry Vicomte d'Orléans was the same person as Aubry [II] Comte de Mâcon, whose daughter Beatrix married as her first husband Geoffroy [I] Comte de Gâtinais who appears to have inherited the lands of the family of the Vicomtes d'Orléans[571].  However, this appears to be disproved by the charter dated to [941] under which "Leotaldus comes et uxor mea Berta" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the souls of "patris mei Alberici…et matris mee Tolane…Irmengardis quondam uxoris sue" which was subscribed by "Alberici filii sui"[572], which shows that the family was installed as Comtes de Mâcon well before the last mention of Aubry Vicomte d'Orléans.  An undated charter of Saint-Aubin d’Angers recites the history of land at Champigné-sur-Sarthe, recording that Foulques III "Nerra" Comte d’Anjou granted "curtem Campigniaci, inter Sartem et Meduanam", previously held by "Albericus Aurelianensis" (presumably indicating Aubry [II] Vicomte d’Orléans), to Aubry Seigneur de Vihiers[573].] 

ii)         [GERBERGE (-before 952).  This origin of the wife of Comte Foulques II appears to be based on onomastic reasons only, proposed by Chaume to explain the use of the name Geoffroy in the family of the Comtes d'Anjou[574]m (937) as his first wife, FOULQUES II "le Bon" Comte d'Anjou, son of FOULQUES I "le Roux" Comte d'Anjou & his wife Roscille de "Loches" ([920]-11 Nov 958).] 

b)         BETTON (-24 Feb [918/20], bur Auxerre Saint-Germain).  The Gesta Episcoporum Autissiodorensium names "Betto…natione…Burgundie…Senonice urbis indigena" and "patre Alberico eque Burgundione editus, matre…Angela Francigena" when recording his election as Bishop of Auxerre[575]Bishop of Auxerre .  The Annales Sanctæ Columbæ Senonensis record that "Betto monachus sanctæ Columbæ" was elected bishop of Auxerre "IV Id Mar" in 915[576].  The Gesta Episcoporum Autissiodorensium records the death "VI Kal Mar" of "Betto" and his burial "in cripta ecclesiæ Sancti Germani" after "annos II, menses XI, dies XIV" as bishop[577]

 

 

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[578], but the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified. 

2.         --- .  m ---.  [Three] children: 

a)         GAUTHIER [I] (-15 Nov 923, bur Sens Saint-Pierre)Archbishop of Sens 887.  The Chronicon archiepiscoporum Senonensium records that "Galterus I…majoris ecclesie Senonensis canonicus" was elected archbishop of Sens "mense martio"[579].  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"[580].  The Annales Sanctæ Columbæ Senonensis record that "Gualterio archiepiscopo Senonum" anointed "Rothbertus princeps" in opposition to "Karolum" in 922[581].  The Annales Sanctæ Columbæ Senonensis record that "Gualterio archiepiscopo Senonum" anointed "Rhodulfus" in 922 and died "XVII Kal Dec" in the same year[582]

b)         BOUCHARD [I] (-after [909/14]).  The Gesta Episcoporum Autissiodorensium records that "Bocardo fratre Gauterii archipresulis" sold property "super Belcam fluviolum Cevernum" {Chevanes sur la Baulche, canton Auxerre-Ouest} to Geran Bishop of Auxerre (recorded as bishop from 909 to 914)[583]

c)         [--- .]  Maurice Chaume identifies Aubry [I] (see above) as the father of Gauthier [II] Archbishop of Sens, assuming therefore that he was the brother of Geoffroy and Betton who are shown above[584]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"[585]

 

 

Two brothers, parents not known, although the spurious charter quoted below names Bouchard’s father as "Alberici Ducis".  Maurice Chaume identifies Bouchard [II] as the son of Bouchard [I] (see above)[586]

1.         BOUCHARD [II] de Bray-sur-Seine (-after 958).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Duchesne quotes the Chronique de l’abbaye de Saint-Pierre le Vif de Sens which records that "miles Burchardus…et uxor illius Ildegardis, qui habebant…munitiunculam in pago Senonico super Setanam fluvium…Braiacus" founded "cœnobium monachorum in honore Domini Salvatoris" at Bray[587].  The Chronicon archiepiscoporum Senonensium records that "Bauchardus quidam miles et uxor eius Hyldagardis" founded the church of Saint-Sauveur near Bray-sur-Seine in 958[588].  Clario’s Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records that "miles Burchardus et uxor illius Ildegardis" held "munitiunculam in pago Senonico, super Sequanam fluvium in loco…Braiacus" where they founded the church of Saint-Sauveur[589].  ["Lotharius…Francorum Rex" confirmed that "Burchardus miles, filius Alberici Ducis" founded the church of Saint-Sauveur at Bray, with the consent of "Hildegardis uxoris eius" and the advice of "Theobaldi domini de Centumliis fratris eius", bringing the bodies of Saint Pari and Saint Pavace from England "de cœnobio de Persora" with the consent of "avunculus eius Rex Ædredus", by charter dated 958[590].  The reference to King Edred being the maternal uncle of the founder is far-fetched, and Lot confirms that this charter is spurious[591].]  m HILDEGARDE, daughter of --- (-after 958).  Duchesne quotes the Chronique de l’abbaye de Saint-Pierre le Vif de Sens which records that "miles Burchardus…et uxor illius Ildegardis, qui habebant…munitiunculam in pago Senonico super Setanam fluvium…Braiacus" founded "cœnobium monachorum in honore Domini Salvatoris" at Bray[592].  The Chronicon archiepiscoporum Senonensium records that "Bauchardus quidam miles et uxor eius Hyldagardis" founded the church of Saint-Sauveur near Bray-sur-Seine in 958[593].  Clario’s Chronicon Sancti Petri Vivi Senonensis records that "miles Burchardus et uxor illius Ildegardis" held "munitiunculam in pago Senonico, super Sequanam fluvium in loco…Braiacus" where they founded the church of Saint-Sauveur[594].  ["Lotharius…Francorum Rex" confirmed that "Burchardus miles, filius Alberici Ducis" founded the church of Saint-Sauveur at Bray, with the consent of "Hildegardis uxoris eius" and with the advice of "Theobaldi domini de Centumliis fratris eius", by charter dated 958[595].  Lot confirms that this charter is spurious[596].] 

2.         THIBAUT (-after 958).  "Lotharius…Francorum Rex" confirmed that "Burchardus miles, filius Alberici Ducis" founded the church of Saint-Sauveur at Bray, with the consent of "Hildegardis uxoris eius" and with the advice of "Theobaldi domini de Centumliis fratris eius", by charter dated 958[597].  Lot confirms that this charter is spurious[598], but it is not known whether the fabricated document included some genuine genealogical details.  The place "Centumliis" has not been identified, however approximately.] 

 

 

1.         BOUCHARD [III] (-after 8 Sep 975).  "Adelelmus miles…ac Burcardus…consobrinum meum" donated property, including "prædium in pago Senonico…Villaris…cum ecclesia…beatæ Mariæ", to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire, for the souls of "genitore meo Rotberto et genitrice mea…Bertha et pro Burcardo", by charter dated 8 Sep 975, witnessed by "…Alberici…"[599]

 

 

 

B.      SEIGNEURS de CHÂTILLON [sur-LOING], SEIGNEURS de GIEN

 

 

1.         ROBERT de Châtillon .  "…Roberti de Castello…" subscribed the charter dated 1077 under which Philippe I King of France donated the church of Saint-Remi at Chanteau to the church of Sts Gervais and Protais at Orléans[600]m [--- de Donzy, daughter of HERVE de Donzy & his wife [--- de Vergy]].  Her parentage and marriage are suggested by the 1086 charter of Geoffroy [II] de Donzy, which also names his nepos Renaud son of Robert de Châtillon[601].  The word nepos is of course difficult to translate in this document.  However, it is unlikely that Robert de Châtillon could have been the brother of Geoffroy [II] de Donzy as he is not mentioned in the charter dated 1055 which names Geoffroy and his three brothers.  It is suggested therefore that the relationship is best explained if Robert married Geoffroy’s sister.]  Robert & his wife had one child: 

a)         RENAUD de Châtillon (-after 1086).  Geoffroy [II] de Donzy is named with his three sons in a 1086 charter, which also names his nepos Renaud son of Robert de Châtillon[602]

 

2.         GEOFFROY (-after [1096]).  Comte de Gien.  "Goffredus comes de Geone" subscribed the charter dated 30 Apr [1096] under which "Gillo de Soliaco" recognised the rights of Saint-Florent over the monastery of Saint-Gondon sur Loire[603]m ---.  The name of Geoffroy’s wife is not known.  Geoffroy & his wife had one child: 

a)         RENAUD .  "Rainaldus filius Goffridi comitis de Geone" subscribed the charter dated to [1098/1101] under which "comes Stephanus, Tebbaldi filius" confirmed the rights of the monastery of Saint-Gondon sur Loire, after the death of "Gilonis de Soiliaco"[604]

 

3.         HAMON de Gienm ---.  The name of Hamon’s wife is not known.  Hamon & his wife had one child:

a)         GEOFFROY de Gien (-after [1100/10]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1110/20] under which his grandson "Gaufridus filius Haimonis de Jalemano" confirmed donations to the priory of Néronville of "terram de Vivario" donated by "Gaufridus filius Haimonis" for the soul of "Doe uxoris sue", by charter dated to [1110/20][605].  "Uxor Goffridi de Giemis…Doa" donated property "apud Montem Baresium" to the priory of Néronville on becoming a nun, and "Goffridus..vir eius" donated "terram de Vivario" which he shared "cum infantibus de Gaazone", by charter dated to [1100/10] "apud Castrum Nantonis, in domo Goffridi subtus in cellario"[606]m DOE, daughter of ---.  "Uxor Goffridi de Giemis…Doa" donated property "apud Montem Baresium" to the priory of Néronville on becoming a nun, and "Goffridus..vir eius" donated "terram de Vivario" which he shared "cum infantibus de Gaazone", by charter dated to [1100/10] "apud Castrum Nantonis, in domo Goffridi subtus in cellario"[607].  Richemond suggests that this last phrase corresponds with the château de Jallemain, adjacent to Château-Landon, and concludes that Doe was dame de Jallemain, although it is not possible to pass judgment on his reasoning as his explanation is not very lucid[608].  Geoffroy & his wife had [two] children: 

i)          [son .  Richemond suggests that the fact that Geoffroy’s son, Hamon, is described as "de Jalemano" indicates that he did not inherit his father’s seigneurie which, he argues, must have fallen to an older brother[609]He suggests that this older brother was the "signeur dau Gien sour Loire" who Ernoul describes as the brother of Renaud de Châtillon-sur-Loing, future prince of Antioch (see below)[610].  His chronology is implausible, if it is correct as shown below that Renaud de Châtillon was born in [1120/30].  However, it is not impossible that Renaud and his brother were descendants, maybe grandsons, of this unnamed older brother.] 

ii)         HAMON de Gien (-before Apr 1118).  Seigneur de Jallemain.  "Haimo de Jalemano et uxor eius" confirmed donations to the priory of Néronville of "terram de Vivario" by "pater eiusdem Haimonis, Gaufridus de Giamo", by charter dated to [1110/20][611]m ---.  The name of Hamon’s wife is not known.  Hamon & his wife had one child: 

(a)       GEOFFROY de Jallemain .  "Gaufridus filius Haimonis de Jalemano" confirmed donations to the priory of Néronville of "terram de Sed" donated by "Robertus Bonet" and "terram de Vivario" donated by "Gaufridus filius Haimonis" for the soul of "Doe uxoris sue", by undated charter[612].  This charter can be dated to before [Jan/Apr] 1118, the date of the confirmation by Louis VI King of France of the donation in question by Robert Bonet[613]

 

 

[Three] siblings, parents not known: 

1.         [--- ([1095/1105]-).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "principe Antiochie Renaldo" had a sister who was the mother of "Renaldum de Monte Falconis in Bituria et duas sorores illius"[614].  Dame de Crépy et de Nanteuil-le-Haudoin.  Her birth date range, which is very approximate, is estimated based on the probable birth date range of her daughter.  As will be observed, this means that she was very much older than her supposed brother Renaud de Châtillon.  This suggests that, if they were brother and sister, they were born from different marriages of their father.  m --- de Monfaucon [en Berri], son of ---.] 

2.         son .  Seigneur de Gien.  The Chronicle of Ernoul names "un chevalier, frere au signeur dau Gien sour Loire…Rainaus"[615].  As noted above, Richemond suggests that this person was the oldest son of Geoffroy de Gion (see above)[616]His chronology is implausible, if it is correct as shown below that Renaud de Châtillon was born in [1120/30].  However, it is not impossible that Renaud and his brother were descendants, maybe grandsons, of this unnamed older son of Geoffroy de Gion. 

3.         RENAUD de Châtillon [sur-Loing] ([1120/30]-beheaded Hattin [Jul/Aug] 1187).  The parentage of Renaud is uncertain.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Raynaldus de Castellione super Wainum fluviolum" when recording his arrival at Antioch and marriage to "uxor…relictam principis Raymundi"[617].  William of Tyre names him "Rainaldus de Castellione"[618].  Neither source specifies which Châtillon is referred to.  The Chronicle of Ernoul names him "un chevalier, frere au signeur dau Gien sour Loire…Rainaus"[619].  Schlumberger interprets this passage as meaning that Renaud was the brother of Geoffroy de Donzy, whose family is recorded in the mid-12th century as holding the castle of Gien[620].  He identifies "Castellione" as Châtillon-sur-Loing {Loiret}[621].  The Donzy/Gien origin appears unlikely as none of the sources dealing with the Donzy family mention Renaud (see the document BURGUNDY DUCHY, NOBILITY).  However, as shown above, "Renaud son of Robert de Châtillon" was recorded in 1086 as nepos of Geoffroy [II] de Donzy.  It is therefore likely that Renaud Prince of Antioch was related to this earlier Renaud.  Renaud went to Palestine with the army of Louis VII King of France in the Second Crusade, and stayed in Jerusalem in the service of King Baudouin III after the crusaders returned to France in 1149.  He accompanied the king to Antioch in 1151[622].  He was installed as RENAUD Prince of Antioch on his marriage in 1153, by right of his wife.  He confirmed Venetian privileges in Antioch as Prince in May 1153.  He recaptured Alexandretta in 1153 from Thoros II Lord of the Mountains [Armenia-Rupen], on the strength of a promise of financing from Emperor Manuel I which was never paid, but handed the district to the Knights Templars[623].  He made an alliance with Thoros and in 1156 they attacked Cyprus together, captured the island's governor Ioannes Komnenos, and laid waste to the island[624].  He captured Harenc in Feb 1158, the town being given to Renaud de Saint-Valéry who held it as a vassal of Antioch[625].  Emperor Manuel I invaded Cilicia in 1158, and Prince Renaud submitted to him rather than risk losing a battle.  The emperor made his formal entry into Antioch 12 Apr 1159[626].  Prince Renaud was taken prisoner by Majd ed-Din Governor of Aleppo in Nov 1160, and sent to Aleppo where he was kept in prison for 16 years[627].  Raymond Count of Tripoli attacked Homs 1 Feb 1175, distracting Saladin from his siege of Aleppo, in return for which the ruler of Aleppo released his remaining Christian prisoners, including Renaud de Châtillon and Joscelin de Courtenay[628].  After their release, he and Joscelin de Courtenay became the focus of the more progressive elements in Palestine, centred around recent arrivals and the Knights Templars[629].  Lord of Hebron and Montréal.  "Rainaldus, quondam Antioochiæ princeps, nunc vero Hebronensis et Montis Regalis dominus" donated property to the Knights Hospitallers, with the consent of "Stephaniæ uxoris eiusque filiorum", by charter dated Nov 1177[630].  A charter dated 1180 records earlier donations by "Guidonem de Miliaco…dominus Philippus Neapolitanus dominusque Guido Francigena et dominus Henricus Bubalus, predicti Guidonis filii" and the present donation by "Reginaldus quondam princeps Anthiochensis…Montisregalis et Hebron dominus" of property to the abbey of Notre-Dame de Josaphat with the consent of "uxor mea Stephania…et Hanfredi prefate dominie Stephanie filii et uxoris eius Elisabeth filie regis Jerusalem"[631].  He attacked a Muslim caravan making its way from Cairo to Palestine end 1186, which put an end to the four-year truce signed by Raymond Count of Tripoli the previous year[632].  He was personally beheaded by Saladin after being captured[633].]  m firstly (before May 1153) as her second husband, CONSTANCE Pss of Antioch, widow of RAYMOND de Poitiers, daughter of BOHEMOND II Prince of Antioch & his wife Alix of Jerusalem ([1127]-[1163/67], bur St Mary, Josaphat).  William of Tyre records her second marriage[634].  The Lignages d'Outremer name "Rinaldo de Castellion" as second husband of "Costanza…la Nova Princessa[635]m secondly ([1175/Nov 1177]) as her third husband, STEPHANIE de Milly, widow firstly of HONFROY [III] de Toron and secondly of MILON de Plancy, daughter and heiress of PHILIPPE de Milly Lord of Hebron and Montréal & his wife Isabelle ---.  The Lignages d'Outremer name "Helvys et Estefenie" as the two daughters of "mesire Phelippe de Naples", specifying that Stephanie was heiress of her father and was wife (firstly) of "Hamfrei le seignor dou Thoron…fiz…Hamfrei…conestable", and (secondly) of "prince Renaut, qui avoit esté prince d'Antioche de par sa feme l'autre"[636].  1155/1183.  Heiress  of Oultrejourdain.  Renaud & his first wife had [two] children: 

a)         AGNÈS de Châtillon (1154-1184, bur Székesfehérvár, transferred to Coronation Church Budapest).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Agnetam" as second of the three daughters of "Raynaldus de Castellione uxor…relictam principis Raymundi" and her husband "rex Bela de Hungaria"[637].  The Lignages d'Outremer name "Maria e Joanna" as the two daughters of "Rinaldo de Castellion" and his wife "Costanza…la Nova Princessa", stating that Marie married "el re d'Ungaria", "Maria" presumably being an error for "Agnes"[638].  She lived at the court of Emperor Manuel I[639]She adopted the name ANNA in Hungary.  m (1172) as his first wife, BÉLA III King of Hungary, son of GÉZA III King of Hungary & Ievfrosina Mstislavna of Kiev (1149-23 Apr 1196, bur Székesfehérvár, transferred to Coronation Church Budapest)

b)         [JEANNE de Châtillon .  The Lignages d'Outremer name "Maria e Joanna" as the two daughters of "Rinaldo de Castellion" and his wife "Costanza…la Nova Princessa", stating that Jeanne married "el re de Salonichio" and died without heirs[640].  This is the only reference so far found to this daughter but, if it is correct, "el re de Salonichio" can only refer to Bonifazio di Monferrato.  This marriage could be his otherwise unrecorded second marriage which is referred to in [late 1186/early 1187] by Niketas Choniates[641].  If this date is correct, Jeanne would presumably have been considerably younger than her sister Agnes.  Jeanne would also have been the maternal aunt of Bonifazio's third wife which suggests problems of affinity and the consequent difficulty of obtaining Papal dispensation for that later marriage.  These reasons suggest that this information is unlikely to be correct.  m ([late 1186/early 1187]) as his second wife, BONIFAZIO I Marchese di Monferrato King of Thessaloniki, son of GUGLIELMO V "il Vecchio" Marchese di Monferrato & his wife Judith of Austria [Babenberg] (1150-killed in battle 4 Sep 1207).] 

Renaud & his second wife had two children: 

c)         RENAUD de Châtillon (after 1175-young, bur Josaphat).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. 

d)         ALIX de Châtillon (-1235 or after).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Aleydem [uxor] marchionis Eystensis in Italia" as third of the three daughters of "Raynaldus de Castellione uxor…relictam principis Raymundi"[642], although it is chronologically unlikely that Alix could have been the daughter of Renaud by his first wife who died [1163/67].  Pope Innocent III confirmed his protection of "nobili mulieri Aliz, filiæ quondam principis Rainaldi" by charter dated 16 Jun 1198[643].  A charter dated 22 Feb 1204 records the marriage contract for "dominus Azo Estensis marchio" and "domina Aliz filia quondam Rainaldi principis Antiocheni"[644].  The testament of "dominus Azzo Estensis marchio", dated 18 Nov 1212, bequeathes property to "filie sue domine Beatrici…Aldeurandinum et Azzolinum novellum filios", a codicil naming "uxori mee domine Ailisii…filie mee Constantie"[645].  "Domini Azoni Estensis Marchionis" donated property to the monastery of Santa Maria at Carceres, with the consent of "Domina Adelice sua matre", by charter dated 1235[646]m (22 Feb 1204) as his second wife, AZZO VI "Azzolino" d'Este, son of AZZO V d'Este & his wife --- ([1170]-Nov 1212, bur Vangadizza monastery).

GUILLAUME de Blois, son of ETIENNE II Comte de Blois & his wife Adela de Normandie ([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”)[692].  Orderic also provides some indication of his birth year when he records[693] 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".  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.  "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"[694]Comte de ChartresSeigneur de Sully, by right of his wife.  He was disinherited, retaining only Sully.  According to Weir, Guillaume is described in the chronicles as an idiot but she does not cite the primary source[695].  The comment may based on a letter of Ivo Bishop of Chartres which records that, during a dispute (dated by Chibnall to [1103][696]) with the chapter of Chartres that was awaiting arbitration, he forced the burgesses of Chartres to form a confederation and take a solemn oath to kill the bishop[697]Chibnall, in order to reconcile this incident with the description of Guillaume by Orderic Vitalis ("good and peaceful man", quoted above), speculates that he was of retarded mental development and, although irresponsible, violent only in words[698].

m AGNES de Sully, daughter of GILLES [I] de Sully & his wife Edelburge de Bourges .  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by Orderic Vitalis who records that “Stephanus Blesensis palatinus comes...[filius] Guillemum” was “gener Geronis de Solleio et hæres[699].  "Post mortem Gilonis de Soiliaco, comes Stephanus Tebbaldi filius" confirmed the rights of Saint-Florent over the monastery of Saint-Gondon sur Loire by charter dated [1098/1101] which names "Willelmus filius comitis Stephani et Agnes filia Gilonis"[700]
