This document shows the Comtes de Valois et du Vexin and the Comtes de Vermandois.  The county of Valois was located south-west of the county of Soissons and south-east of the county of Clermont.  The Vexin lay south-west of Beauvais on the border of the duchy of Normandy.  In the 11th century Vexin was held by the Comtes de Valois.  The county of Vermandois lay north and west of the county of Laon and east of Amiens, straddling the present-day French départements of Oise and Aisne.  Héribert [VI] Comte de Vermandois acquired Valois by marriage and the two counties continued to be ruled by the same families until the early 13th century.

RAOUL de Mantes, son of GAUTHIER [II] "le Blanc" Comte d’Amiens et du Vexin, Comte de Mantes & his wife Adela --- (-1060)"Walterius comes" donated property "prope nostrum castellum…Medanta" to "Carnotensi monasterio Sancti Petri", for the soul of "coniugis mee Adelidis filiorumque meorum", by charter to [1006], signed by "Walterii comitis, Rodulfi filii eius, Drogonis filii eius…"[1]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Rodulfum" as son of "Gauterus Albus de Albamarla"[2].  Robert II King of France confirmed to the abbot of Saint-Germain and Saint-Vincent that he had forced noster comes Drogo...cum duobus fratribus Fulcone...et Rodulfo necnon uxore cum filiis supramemorati Drogonis” to renounce rights to revenue from “in villa...Domni Martini...” to Saint-Germain-des-Prés by charter dated [1 Jan/1 Mar]1031[3]Comte de Valois et d'Amiens

m [--- de Breteuil, daughter of HILDUIN [Gilduin] de Breteuil Vicomte de Chartres & his wife Emmeline de [Châteaudun] (-11 Sep 1051).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  Du Chesne states that "Raoul frere de Dreux Comte de Vexin" married “la fille de Gelduin ou Hilduin Comte de Breteuil et de Clermont en Beauvoisin” who brought “la terre de Nanteuil surnommée de là Nanteuil le Hildouin en mémoire du Comte Hilduin son pere” but does not cite the corresponding primary source[4].  Du Chesne does not name her.] 

Comte Raoul & his wife had one child: 

1.         RAOUL [III] “le Grand” de Valois (-Péronne 23 Feb or 8 Sep 1074, bur Montdidier, later transferred to Crépy-en-Valois, église collégiale Saint-Arnoul)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Rodulfum" as son of "Rodulfum [filii Gauteri Albus de Albamarla]"[5].  He succeeded [1030/35] as Comte de Valois.  He headed the resistance to Henri I King of France from the death of Eudes II Comte de Blois in 1038, and as such led the campaigns of Beauvaisis in 1041[6].  He succeeded his cousin Gauthier [III] as Comte d'Amiens et du Vexin.  "Comes Rodulfus et filius meus Walterus et Simon…" donated property to Montiérender by undated charter[7].  First conseiller in the royal council, he was one of the most powerful and influential nobles in the kingdom.  He was excommunicated because of the scandal of his third marriage, he reappeared at court only in 1070.  "Rodulphus…Ambianensis comes" donated property “ad Conteiense castellum” to Sainte-Marie d'Amiens, with the consent of "Simon filius meus et Gualterus, Gualteri Tyrelli natus", by charter dated 1069, subscribed by "Radulphus comes, Anna uxor eius, Gualterus Tirelli filius, Symon comitis filius..."[8].  The consent given by Gauthier Tirell suggests that he and Comte Raoul [III] held an interest in the property at Conty jointly, but if this is correct the family relationship between them has not been traced.  "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter, the entry stating that "Radulfus comes" died "VIII Kal Mar"[9]m firstly ([1041/45]) as her fourth husband, AELIS de Bar-sur-Aube, widow firstly of RENAUD de Semur-en-Brionnais, secondly of RENARD Comte de Joigny and thirdly of ROGER [I] avoué de Vignory, daughter and heiress of NOCHER [II] Comte de Bar-sur-Aube et de Vitry-en-Perthois & his wife --- (([1020/25]-11 Sep 1053).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Adala" wife of "comitis Veromandie [error for Valois] Rodolfi" and mother of "Symonem et filiam…Adala", but does not give her origin[10].  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of St Simon de Valois, based on an undated manuscript of the abbey of Saint-Claude, records that "Rodulpho (Simonis genitori)" married three wives, firstly "Adela, Nocheri Barrensis ad Albam comitis filia, Notheri comitis Suessionum neptis, Archardi proneptis" who had previously married "Rainaldum de Sinemuro, Rainardum comitem de Jooniaco, Rotgerium de Wangionis ripa"[11].  Her marital history is recorded in the Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of St Simon de Valois: after the death of her first husband, "Rodulfus comes Calvimontis Vallis Cassini" [identified as her future fourth husband] visited "castellum Barri" who proposed marriage, the ceremony to take place after his return from a pilgrimage to Rome, but as the proposal displeased "primoribus terræ illius" they married her during Raoul’s absence to "Rainardo comiti de Jooniaco".  After Raoul returned, he besieged "Jooniacum castellum" and abducted Aelis to "castello Firmitatis", wanting to assure himself that she was not pregnant before marrying her.  While there, the inhabitants of Bar-sur-Aube married her again to "Rotgerio de Wangionis ripa", after which Raoul ravaged the countryside until they returned Aelis to him[12].  Her son "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter[13].  "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter, the entry stating that "Adelina comitissa" died "III Id Sep"[14]m secondly (repudiated 1060) ---["Haquenez"], daughter of ---.  Europäische Stammtafeln names “Haquenez” as second wife of Raoul [III], adding that she was repudiated and died after 1061[15]The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.  She is named as such in numerous secondary sources published over the last two centuries, which sometimes also call her “Eléonore”, but none has been found which cites a primary source providing the basis for these names.  Pope Alexander II wrote to Gervais Archbishop of Reims in 1062 recording that "comes Radulfus" had repudiated his (unnamed) wife on false charges of adultery and requiring him to take her back[16]m thirdly ([1061]) as her second husband, ANNA Iaroslavna, widow of HENRI I King of France, daughter of IAROSLAV I Vladimirovich "Mudriy/the Wise" Grand Prince of Kiev & his second wife Ingigerd Olafsdottir of Sweden (1036-5 Sep ([1075/78], bur Abbaye Villiers near La-Ferté-Alais).  The Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum records the marriage of "filiam regis Russorum Annam" with King Henri[17].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Anna filia Georgii regis Sclavonum" as wife of King Henri[18]Consecrated Queen Consort at Reims on her wedding day.  Queen Anna caused a scandal in France by her second marriage and was forced to leave the court, although she returned after her second husband's death in 1074[19]The Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum records the marriage of "Anna, Henrici relicta" and "Rodulfo comitis"[20].  "Rodulphus…Ambianensis comes" donated property to Sainte-Marie d'Amiens, with the consent of "Simon filius meus et Gualterus, Gualteri Tyrelli natus", by charter dated 1069, subscribed by "Anna uxor eius"[21].  Comte Raoul III & his first wife had five children:

a)         GAUTHIER de Valois (-killed in battle 6 Sep [1065/1067]).  "Comes Rodulfus et filius meus Walterus et Simon…" donated property to Montiérender by undated charter[22].  "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter, the entry stating that "Walterius comes" died "VIII Id Sep"[23]Comte [de Bar-sur-Aube].  As his father was still alive at the time, it is supposed that Gauthier’s county was Bar-sur-Aube, inherited from his mother, but this is not beyond all doubt. 

b)         SIMON de Valois (-Rome [30 Sep/1 Oct] 1080, bur 1082 Rome St Peter).  "Comes Rodulfus et filius meus Walterus et Simon…" donated property to Montiérender by undated charter[24]The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Symonem et filiam…Adala" children of "comitis Veromandie [error for Valois] Rodolfi" and his wife Adela[25].  "Rodulphus…Ambianensis comes" donated property to Sainte-Marie d'Amiens, with the consent of "Simon filius meus et Gualterus, Gualteri Tyrelli natus", by charter dated 1069, subscribed by "Anna uxor eius"[26]Comte de Valois, d'Amiens, et de Montdidier, Comte de Bar-sur-AubeThe Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum names "Symon filius eius" as successor of "Vadensium comes Rodulfus", recording that he resigned the county and went on a pilgrimage to Rome where he died and was buried "in portico sancti Petri"[27].  He was educated by Mathilde de Flandre, wife of William I King of England, but rejected the betrothal to his daughter[28].  "Symon comes Barrensium" donated property to the abbey of Molesme for the souls of "parentum suorum Radulfi…comitis et Walterii fratris suis et matris sue Adele" by undated charter[29].  He resigned his counties in 1077 and became a monk.  "Symon comes…effectus monacus" is named in a charter dated [1076?] under which Philippe I King of France confirmed his donations to Cluny[30].  He went on pilgrimage to Rome where he died[31].  The necrology of the Priory of Saint-Martin-des-Champs records the death "Kal Oct" of "Simon comes"[32].  [Betrothed ([after 1069]) to AGATHE de Normandie, daughter of WILLIAM I King of England & his wife Mathilde de Flandre ([1064]-before 1074, bur Bayeux Cathedral).  The Vita Simonis records a ficitional speech of William I King of England in which he offers his (unnamed) daughter's hand to Simon, specifying that she had previously been betrothed to "regis Hispaniarum Anfursi et Roberti principis Apuliæ"[33].  The supposed betrothal to Robert of Apulia (which would have to be Robert "Guiscard" Duke of Apulia) is unrecorded in the numerous other sources dealing with his life and is probably pure fiction.  This does not inspire confidence with respect to the historical accuracy of the whole passage, but if it is correct the daughter in question would presumably have been Agatha whose betrothal to "Amfursio regi Galliciæ" (presumably Alfonso VI King of Galicia and León, later King of Castile) is recorded by Orderic Vitalis[34].]  Betrothed (before 1077) to --- de la Marche, daughter of AUDEBERT [II] Comte de la Marche et du Périgueux & his wife Ponce ---.  The Vita Simonis, interpolated in the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, records the betrothal of "comes Symon" and "filiam comitis Hildeberti de Alvernis", specifying that Simon fled "ad monasterio de Casa Dei" without his father's knowledge before the marriage[35]

c)         ADELAIS de Valois (-after 1077)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Symonem et filiam…Adala" as children of "comitis Veromandie [error for Valois] Rodolfi" and his wife Adela[36].  Her marriage is confirmed by an undated charter, quoted by Acta Sanctorum, under which "Rodulfus comes" 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"[37]Ctss de Valois.  "Herbertus Vermandensium et Vadascorum comes" donated property to the church of Saint-Quentin and others, with the consent of "Alide coniugis meæ", by charter dated 1059 (date unlikely to be correct, considering that Héribert did not succeed as Comte de Valois until 1077)[38]m ([1059 or before]) HERIBERT [VI] Comte de Vermandois, son of EUDES Comte de Vermandois & his wife Pavia --- ([1032]-[1080]). 

d)         [ADELA [Alix] de Valois (-12 May [1093/1100], bur Saint-Faron).  It is unclear whether the [second/third] wife of Thibaut III Comte de Blois could have been the daughter of Comte Raoul [III].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Alaydis soror sancti Symonis" as wife of "comiti Campanie Theobaldo", although he 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[39].  The difficulty with Alberic’s statement is an undated charter, quoted by Acta Sanctorum, under which "Rodulfus comes" 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"[40].  If the wife of Comte Thibaut III had been another daughter of Raoul [III], it is unclear why he 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"[41], 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.  "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"[42], it being assumed that she was the wife of the former not the latter.  The necrology of Saint-Loup, Troyes records the death "XII Mai" of "Aalais uxor Theobaudi comitis Campaniæ" and her burial "in monasterio Sancti Faronis"[43]m (before 1061) as his [second/third] wife, THIBAUT III Comte de Blois, Chartres et Champagne, son of EUDES II Comte de Blois, Chartres, Troyes et Champagne & his second wife Ermengarde d'Auvergne ([1010]-29/30 Sep 1089).] 

e)         [ELISABETH] de Valois (-[12 May 1093/1101]).  The Acta Sanctorum commentary on the life of St Simon de Valois records that "Aaliz" daughter of Raoul Comte de Valois and his first wife married "Bartolomeus, juvenis de Breias" by whom she was mother of "Hugonem Bardoul"[44].  It is unclear from the text whether this statement is based on primary source data.  It is assumed that the name "Aaliz" is an error as the couple is already recorded elsewhere with daughters named Adelais, Adela/Alix.  Her marriage is confirmed by an undated charter, quoted by Acta Sanctorum, under which "Rodulfus comes" 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"[45].  Dame de Châteauvillain et d'Arc-en-Barrois.  m BARTHELEMY Seigneur de Broyes et de Beaufort, son of HUGUES [I] "Bardoul" Seigneur de Broyes, de Beaufort et de Pithiviers & his wife --- (-after 1072). 

 

 

 

B.      VICOMTES du VEXIN

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         HUGUESVicomte de VexinA charter dated 1034 records the settlement of claims by "Hugone vicecomiti Vilcasini" over "terra Sancti Petri Gisiacensi", with the consent of "senioris sui comitis Droconis", witnessed by "Gualerannus frater ipsius vicecomitis, Richardus de Nielfa consanguineus eius, Sanson vicecomes de Medanta…Teduinus vicecomes, Amelius frater eius…Rodulfus delicatus…"[46]

2.         WALERANA charter dated 1034 records the settlement of claims by "Hugone vicecomiti Vilcasini" over "terra Sancti Petri Gisiacensi", with the consent of "senioris sui comitis Droconis", witnessed by "Gualerannus frater ipsius vicecomitis, Richardus de Nielfa consanguineus eius, Sanson vicecomes de Medanta…Teduinus vicecomes, Amelius frater eius…Rodulfus delicatus…"[47]

A.      SEIGNEURS de CHAUMONT-en-VEXIN

 

 

This family is shown by Kerrebrouck, who cites few primary sources other than as indicated below[48].  It has not yet been possible to identify the primary sources which confirm the parentage and marriages of the members of this family, unless otherwise stated below. 

 

 

HENRI de Vermandois, son of HUGUES [I] de France Comte de Vermandois [Capet] & his wife Adelais Ctss de Vermandois (-killed in battle 1130).  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names (in order) "Radulfum comitem Veromandie et Henricum de Chauni et Simonem episcopum Noviomensem" as the sons of "Hugonem Magnum [et] Adelaide comitissa Veromandensium"[49].  Orderic Vitalis records that in 1096 "Hugo Crispeii comes" placed "Radulfo et Henrico filiis suis" in charge of his land, married "Ysabel filiam suam" to "Rodberto de Mellento comiti", and left on pilgrimage taking "secum nobile agmen Francorum"[50]Seigneur de Chaumont-en-Vexin 1096.  "Adela…Viromandorum comitissa, filius…meus Radulphus" renounced their claim to certain serfs in favour of the abbey of Compiègne Saint-Corneille, with the consent of "filiorum meorum Radulphi, Henrici, Symonis", by charter dated 1114[51]He was killed fighting Thomas de Marle during the war against Charles I "le Bon" Count of Flanders[52]

m ---.  The name of Henri's wife is not known.  1140. 

Henri & his wife had two children:

1.         HUGUES [I] de Chaumont (-before 1170).  He succeeded his father in 1130 as Seigneur de Chaumontm ---.  The name of Hugues's wife is not known.  Hugues [I] & his wife had two children:

a)         HUGUES [II] de Chaumont (-after 1196).  He succeeded his father in [1170] as Seigneur de ChaumontMatthew Paris records that "Hugo de Calvo monte, regi Francorum valde carus et familiaris" was captured in 1196 by supporters of Richard I King of England and imprisoned at “castellum...de Bona villa supra Tuke” [Bonneville sur la Touque] but escaped after bribing his guard “Willelmo de Spineto[53]m ---.  The name of Hugues's wife is not known.  Hugues [II] & his wife had five children:

i)          PHILIPPE de Chaumont (-after [1235][54]).  He made a donation to the church of Louversey, diocese of Soissons, in 1209[55]m ---.  The name of Philippe's wife is not known.  Philippe & his wife had four children:

(a)       GUY de Chaumont (-after 1266).  In 1250 he sold his land at Louversey inherited from his father and his uncle Renaud Seigneur de Louversey[56]

(b)       JACQUES de Chaumont (-after 1250).  He was a guarantor of the 1250 sale by his brother Guy1624.  

(c)       RENAUD de Chaumont ([after 1235]-after 1266).  Mentioned as a minor in 1250, cited again in 1266[57].  

(d)       MARGUERITE de Chaumont ([after 1235]-after 1266).  Mentioned as a minor in 1250, cited again in 12661625

ii)         RENAUD de Chaumont (-after 1209).  Seigneur de Louversey (part), he was named in the 1209 donation of his brother to the church of Louversey[58].  His nephew Guy de Chaumont inherited his property at Louversey so presumably Renaud died without issue.  m BEATRIX, daughter of ---. 

iii)        ROBERT de Chaumont (-after Jul 1215).  According to Kerrebrouck[59], he was named in Jul 1215 as witness to the treaty between Eléonore Ctss de Vermandois and Philippe II King of France but there is presumably an error in this date assuming that Ctss Eléonore did die in 1213 as shown above. 

iv)       THIBAUT de Chaumont.  1209. 

v)        MATHILDE de Chaumont.  1209. 

b)         PHILIPPE de Chaumont (-after [1170]).  He was brought up with Henri Archbishop of Reims[60]Arnoul Bishop of Lisieux recommended “Philippum...de Chaumont...in actibus eius regii sanguinis refulgebat excellencia” to Henri Archbishop of Reims in a letter dated to [1170][61]

2.         GAUTHIER de Chaumont (-after 1150).  Saint Bernard wrote his 104th letter to him in 1150[62].  

 

 

 

B.      VICOMTES de CHAUMONT-en-VEXIN

 

 

The primary sources which confirm the parentage and marriages of the members of this family have not been identified, unless otherwise stated below. 

 

 

1.         GALON [I] (-after Feb 1055).  Vicomte de Chaumont.  "Teduinus vicecomes Mellenti castri, Gualo vicecomes castri Calidi Montis, Nivardus de Monte Forti, Radulfus Malus Vicinus…Radulfus Delicatus" witnessed the charter dated Feb 1055 under which "comes Walterius" donated "æcclesiam Ledonis Curiæ" to Chartres Saint-Père[63]

 

2.         GEOFFROY [de Chaumont] (-after 1079).  “...Gotfridus de Calmonte, Symon de Monteforti, Herveus de Galardone” subscribed the charter dated 1078 under which Philippe I King of France confirmed the donation made by “quendam hominem de Pissiaco, Hylduinum...” to Paris Saint-Magloire[64].  “...comes Ivo de Belmonte, Albericus de Cociaco, Gaufridus de Calmonte...” subscribed the charter dated Jan 1079 under which Philippe I King of France restricted the jurisdiction of Beauvais Saint-Quentin[65].  Père Anselme identifies Geoffroy as “seigneur de Caumont” in Gascony (see the document GASCONY)[66].  The other subscribers of the two charters quoted above were noblemen in the region of Paris.  It seems more likely that “Gotfridus de Calmonte” was from the same region.  One possibility is that “Calmonte” indicated Chaumont not Caumont.  This possibility appears supported by Père Anselme linking Geoffroy to “Calo seigneur de Caumont” and “Calo II seigneur de Caumont” who can be identified as Galon [I] Vicomte de Chaumont and Galon [II] Vicomte de Chaumont (see above and below). 

 

 

EUDES [Odo] de Beaumont, son of IVES [I] Comte de Beaumont & his wife Emma --- (-1088 or after).  "Comes Ivo cum filio meo simili nomine…clerico et canonico…cum mea propria conjuge Emma et ceteris omnibus meis liberis" donated "castrum Confluentie" to Saint-Wandrigisel by charter dated 1039, signed by "Ivo…comes…Ivo clericus…comes Goffredus, Albericus, Gelduini vicecomitis…Odonis filii supradicti comitis, Gosberti fratris eiusdem Odonis"[67]Camerarius 1059.  Vicomte de Chaumont-en-Vexin 1068/88. 

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

Eudes & his wife had two children: 

1.         GALON [II] de Beaumont (-after 1 Jul 1097).  "…Gualo filius Odonis de Calvomonte…" witnessed the charter dated 1085 under which Philippe I King of France donated property to Bec[68]Vicomte de Chaumont.  Connétable 1085.  William of Tyre names "Galo de Calvo Monte" among those who left on the First Crusade in 1096 with Robert Count of Flanders[69]Albert of Aix names "…Walo de Calmunt…" among those who took part in the siege of Nikaia, dated to mid-1097 from the context[70].  Albert of Aix records that "…Walo de Calmunt…" fought against the Turks at Dorylæum (1 Jul 1097)[71]m HUMBERGE du Puiset, daughter of HUGUES [I] "Blavons" de Breteuil Châtelain du Puiset Vicomte de Chartres & his wife Alix de Montlhéry.  The donation of property to "sancti Petro" by "Hugo vicecomes" is recorded in a charter dated 1096, subscribed by "Adelidis uxor vicecomitis, filii eorum, Ebrardus, Hugo, Guiddo et filia Unberga"[72]The primary source which confirms her marriage has not been identified.  1094.  Galon [II] & his wife had three children: 

a)         DREUX de Chaumont (-after 1099).  "Drogo filius Walonis de Calvomonte" confirmed a donation of property to Saint-Martin-de-Pontoise by "Willelmus qui agnominabatur Aculeius", with the consent of his unnamed wife and sons, by charter dated to after 1099[73]

-        SEIGNEURS de TRIE

b)         HUGUES "Panis avena" .  The Chroniques de St. Germer record that "Hugo de Calvomonte dictus Panis Avenæ, Galonis filius, Drogonis frater…patruus Ingelramni de Calvomonte seu de Tria" requested his brother to donate property to the abbey[74].  Provost at Saint-Germer [1115]. 

c)         HUMBERGE .  before 1089.

Chapter 3.    COMTES de VERMANDOIS

 

 

A.      COMTES de VERMANDOIS 896-1080 (CAROLINGIAN)

 

 

The county of Vermandois was formed by Héribert, a descendant of the early Carolingian kings of Italy whose direct ancestors had established themselves as counts in the area north of Paris.  Héribert acquired Vermandois and Saint-Quentin in 896, followed by Soissons in 898[176].    His son count Héribert [II] acquired control over the archbishopric of Reims by engineering the appointment of his infant son as archbishop in 925.  He also acquired Amiens, the Vexin and Artois, although these territories were disputed by Arnoul I Count of Flanders.  The rivalry between the counts of Vermandois and the counts of Flanders was triggered in 896 by the murder of the brother of Baudouin II Count of Flanders by the forces of count Héribert [I] and persisted throughout the first half of the 10th century.  The two power-bases appear to have been fairly evenly balanced, the result being that neither was able to dominate the whole of northern France.  Another factor which must have rendered domination by either side more difficult was that the territory of the bishopric of Cambrai, directly north of Vermandois and south of Flanders, had been allocated to Lotharingia under the 843 treaty of Verdun, while the rest of northern France fell within the kingdom of the West Franks.  Cambrai therefore represented a political barrier to either side extending control into the eastern part of the other's territory.  Both the Flanders and Vermandois families lost political power during the mid-10th century.  The territory of the Vermandois family was partitioned after the death of count Héribert [II] in 943 to provide appanages for his three sons, none of whom appears to have inherited their father's energy, and in the following century most of it passed by inheritance into the domaine royale of the Capetian kings. 

 

 

HERIBERT [I], son of PEPIN [Carolingian] Seigneur de Péronne et de St Quentin, Comte near Paris ([848/850]-murdered [900/6 Nov 907])Regino names (in order) "Bernardum, Pippinum et Heribertum" as the three children of "Pippinum", specifying that Héribert killed "Rodulfum comitem filium Balduini comitis"[177]"Heribertus, Bernhardi frater" is named in the Vita Hludowicis Imperatoris[178].  He was at the court of Emperor Charles II “le Chauve” in 877.  Comte de Soissons 886/898.  Abbé de St Crépin.  Comte de Meaux et de Madrie 888/889[179]He became Comte de Vermandois in 896.  The Annales Vedastini record that "Rodulfus comes" disrupted the peace in 896 and took the property of "Heribertus et Erkingerus", that "Odo rex" besieged "castrum sancti Quintini et Peronam" and expelled Raoul's supporters, and that Héribert killed Raoul[180]Comte Héribert opposed Eudes King of France, but was reconciled with the king in 897, an event which may have been confirmed by the marriage of Héribert's daughter to the king's nephew Robert[181].  Baudouin II Count of Flanders attacked Vermandois, was driven out by 900 but reconquered it and killed Héribert [I] Comte de Vermandois in revenge for his brother's death[182]

m [LIETGARDIS], daughter of --- (-27 May ----).  The name of the wife of Comte Héribert is not known.  However, a "Comtesse Liedgardis", different from the daughter of Comte Héribert [II], is named who could have been his wife[183].  If this is correct, the necrology of Reims which records the death "VI Kal Jun" of "Letgardis comitissa"[184], may refer to the same person[185].  According to the Histoire de Guise, Albert Comte de Vermandois constructed the abbey of Saint-Michel at Rochefort in 945 "d'accord avec la comtesse Hérésinde sa femme", while in 947 Hérésinde founded the nearby Benedictine convent of Bucilly[186].  The source assumes that this refers to Albert Comte de Vermandois, but his supposed marriage to Hérésinde is not mentioned by Settipani[187].  According to the introduction to the Cartulaire de l'abbaye de Bucilly, Bucilly was founded by "Gerberge, femme d'Albert I Comte de Vermandois" although it notes that "certains auteurs ont voulu faire remonter [sa fondation] à la libéralité de Hersinde femme d'Herbert Comte de Vermandois morte en 901"[188].  No other reference has been found to Hérésinde being the wife of Comte Héribert [I]. 

Comte Héribert [I] & his wife had four children:

1.         HERIBERT [II] ([880]-23 Feb 943, bur Saint Quentin).  None of the sources so far consulted states explicitly that Heribert [II] and his sister Beatrix were the children of Heribert [I] but this looks probable.  He succeeded his father in [900/907] as Comte de Meaux, de Soissons et de Vermandois.   

-        see below

2.         BEATRIX de Vermandois ([880/83]-after 26 Mar 931)None of the sources so far consulted state explicitly that Heribert [II] and his sister Beatrix were the children of Heribert [I] but this looks probable.  Her birth date range is estimated from her eldest daughter giving birth to her own first child in [915].  The Historia Francorum Senonensis records that "sororem Herberti" was the wife of "Robertus princeps" who rebelled against Charles III "le Simple" King of the West Franks[189].  Guillaume of Jumièges records that “Rodbertus dux” married “sororem Herberti” by whom he had “Hugonem Magnum[190]The marriage may have been arranged to confirm her father's reconciliation with Eudes King of France, who was her husband's uncle[191].  Werner suggests [897] as the date of the marriage, on the assumption that it followed the political reconciliation between Béatrix's father and Robert's uncle[192].  As discussed in relation to Robert's first marriage in the document FRANCE CAPETIAN KINGS, there is a possibility that Robert's first wife was still alive in 907, which would of course mean that Béatrix's marriage took place after that date.  m ([897]) as his second wife, ROBERT Marquis en Neustrie, son of ROBERT “le Fort” Marquis en Neustrie & his [second] wife --- ([860]-killed in battle near Soissons 15 Jun 923).  Comte de Paris 898.  He was elected 22 Jun 922 as ROBERT I King of France

3.         [daughter [ADELA] .  Jackman suggests[193] that the wife of Graf Gebhard [Konradiner] was the daughter of Héribert [I] Comte de Vermandois, although this appears supported only by onomastic indications.  The name of Graf Gebhard's wife is not given explicitly in the sources.  However, an "Adela" is named in a name-list in the Reichenau memorial book dated [926/32] which appears to include members of the Konradiner family, Jackman suggesting that she is well placed in the list to be Graf Gebhard's wife[194], although this is not the only possible interpretation of the text.  m GEBHARD Graf im Ufgau, son of EBERHARD Graf in der Ortenau [Konradiner] & his wife Wiltrud --- (-after 15 Jan 947).] 

4.         [daughter [CUNIGUNDIS] ([890/900]-after 943)The Vermandois origin of Graf Udo's wife is suggested by the fact that Flodoard refers to the wife of "Uddone [frater Hermanno]" as amita of "Hugo [de Vermandois Archbishop of Reims]"[195]The name of Graf Udo's wife is not given explicitly in the sources.  However, a "Cunegundis" is named in a name-list in the Reichenau memorial book dated [926/32] which appears to include members of the Konradiner family, Jackman suggesting that she is well placed in the list to be Graf Gebhard's wife[196], although this is not the only possible interpretation of the text.  Her birth date range is estimated from her estimated marriage date.  m ([915]) UDO Graf in der Wetterau, son of GEBHARD Graf in der Wetterau [Konradiner] & his wife Hidda --- (-12 Dec 949).]

 

 

HERIBERT [II], son of HERIBERT [I] Comte de Vermandois & his wife [Lietgardis] --- ([880]-23 Feb 943, bur Saint Quentin).  None of the sources so far consulted state explicitly that Héribert [II] and his sister Beatrix were the children of Héribert [I] but this looks probable.  He succeeded his father in [900/907] as Comte de Meaux, de Soissons et de Vermandois.  Lay Abbot of St Crépin and St Médard at Soissons.  Comte Héribert took part in the rebellion against Charles III “le Simple” King of France in 922 and tricked the ex-king into capture after he fled following his defeat near Soissons in 923.  Flodoard records in 923 that "Heribertus comes" sent “Bernardum consobrinum suum” with a delegation “ad Karolum” who was “in castello suo super Somnam apud Sanctum Quintinum”, and who was detained “in...munitionem suam...Castellum Theoderici super Maternam fluvium[197].  Héribert consolidated his power by arranging for his young son to be made Archbishop of Reims.  Comte Héribert received Péronne from Raoul King of France in 924.  Together with forces of Arnoul I Count of Flanders, Héribert captured the Viking stronghold of Eu[198].  Following this he apparently forged an alliance with Comte Rollo in [927][199], leaving his son Eudes with Rollo as a hostage.  Comte Héribert unsuccessfully attempted to capture Laon in 927[200][Comte de Vienne]: Flodoard records that Ugo King of Italy gave "provintiam Viennensem" to Héribert Comte de Varmandois in 928, and that "Odonis filii sui [=Heriberto]" was appointed vicecomes[201].  No primary source has yet been identified which describes Héribert as “Comte de Vienne” or confirms whether he adopted the comital title.  Flodoard provides an insight into the continuing rivalries regarding Vienne when he records in 933 that it was granted to "Rodulfo regi" [Rudolf II King of Upper Burgundy, see the document BURGUNDY KINGS][202]. With help from Hugues "le Grand" [Capet], King Raoul subdued Vermandois and Comte Héribert made his submission to the king[203]In 939. Héribert joined the alliance against Louis IV King of France led by Otto I "der Große" King of Germany, who raided Frankish territory and forced King Louis to renounce his claim to the throne of Lotharingia.  Together with Hugues "le Grand" [Capet], Héribert besieged Reims, forcing the restoration of his son as archbishop, and also besieged King Louis at Laon.  Flodoard records the death of "Heribertus comes" in 943 and his burial at Saint-Quentin[204].  The necrology of Reims Cathedral records the death "VII Kal Mar" of "Heribertus comes"[205]On his death in 943, his territories were divided between his sons by their maternal uncle Hugues "le Grand".   

m (before 21 May 907) [ADELA], daughter of ROBERT Marquis en Neustrie, Comte de Paris [later ROBERT I King of France] & his first wife [Adela] --- (before 898-).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to "comitis Heriberti gener…Roberti" and in a later passage to the sister of "dux Hugo Cappatus" as the wife of "comitis Heriberti de Peroni, Campanie et Veromandie" but does not name her[206].  Her origin is confirmed by Flodoard naming "Hugo dux cum nepotibus suis, Heriberti filiis" in 943[207].  Her birth date is estimated from the birth of her first child in [915].  Her name is deduced as follows.  The 21 May 907 donation of Rebais abbey to the church of Paris refers to "comitis Rotberti et Adele comitisse"[208].  Although this phrasing usually indicates husband and wife, Settipani suggests that the chronology of the life of King Robert's son Hugues (attested as Robert's son by his second wife Béatrix) favours his birth, and therefore his father's second marriage, well before 907, which would mean "Adele" could not have been Robert's wife.  This reasoning appears based firstly on Hugues already being married in [914], and secondly on the probability of his having reached the age of majority when he was recognised as duke in 922.  The 907 document is explained as referring to Robert and his elder daughter.  The issue, however, is not beyond doubt, especially if the document in question was misdated.  Her marriage date assumes that this identification is correct. 

Comte Héribert II & his wife had [eight] children:

1.         ODO [Eudes] ([915]-after 19 Jun 946)Vicomte de Vienne: Flodoard records that "Odonis filii sui [=Heriberto]" was appointed vicecomes when Ugo King of Italy gave his father "provintiam Viennensem" in 928[209].  His father left him in [927] as a hostage with Rollo Comte [de Normandie].  Unlike his father, he swore allegiance to Louis IV "d'Outremer" King of the Franks in 938 and received the guardianship of the royal residence at Laon.  He occupied the town and county of Amiens, but was expelled in 944[210].    

2.         ADELA de Vermandois ([915]-[Bruges 10 Oct] 960, bur Ghent, St Pieter).  The Genealogica Arnulfi Comitis names "Adelam, domni Heriberti comitis filiam" as wife of "comes Arnulfus", specifying that she was "duorum Francorum regum, Odonis atque Rotberti, neptem"[211]Flodoard refers to the wife of "Arnoul" as sister of "Hugo [de Vermandois Archbishop of Reims]"[212]Her marriage was arranged to seal the alliance made in 934 between her father and her future husband[213]"Arnulfus Flandrie comes et marchisus" granted use of property "Snellenghem in pago Flandrensi" to Saint-Pierre de Gand, for "uxore mea…Adala atque…filio meo Balduino et filia mea Lietgardis" and for deceased "Balduino genitore meo et Elstrudis genetrice mea atque Heeberto filio meo", by charter dated 10 Jul 953[214].  "Adhela comitissa" freed two serfs and granted them to the abbey of Saint-Pierre de Gand, for the soul of "fidelis nostri Amalrici", by charter dated 8 Sep 954, signed by "Balduini comitis…Odacri advocati"[215]The Annales Blandinienses record the death in 960 of "Adala comitissa"[216]m (934) as his second wife, ARNOUL I "le Grand" Count of Flanders, son of BAUDOUIN II "le Chauve" Count of Flanders & his wife Ælfthryth of Wessex ([885/890]-murdered 27 Mar 964, bur Ghent, St Pieter).  

3.         HERIBERT [III] "le Vieux" ([910/26]-[983/early 985], bur Lagny).  Flodoard names "Heriberti Adalberti fratris" when recording his marriage, and in a later passage "nepotes Hugonis, Heribertus et Rotbertus"[217].  His date of birth has been estimated at [910/15] by Werner[218], whereas Settipani supports a later estimate of [925/26][219].  The former appears more consistent with Héribert's participation in his father's war from 938.  If the latter is correct, comte Héribert would have been more than 20 years younger than his wife, which seems unlikely.  There appears to be no basis for deciding between one or the other.  He is documented with his father between 938 and 942 in the latter's war against King Louis IV, submitting to the king with his father in 942.  Under the division of territories organised after his father's death in 943, Héribert became Comte d'Omois and received the fortress of Château-Thierry as well as the abbey of Saint-Médard, Soissons.  King Lothaire appointed him comte du palais (comte palatin).  He succeeded his brother Robert in 967 as Comte de Meaux et de Troyes.  His proposed death date range in [983/early 985] is estimated on the following basis.  A letter of Gerbert dated 983 records that "Heriberti Trecassini et Oddonis comitis filii Tedbaldi" were enemies of "Adelbero Remonis archiepiscopus"[220].  However, a letter dated to Apr 985 names "Ottonis et Heriberti", while a letter dated to mid-985 records that "Ottonem, Heribertum" made peace with the archbishop[221].  Another letter of Gerbert dated to [late 986/early 987] records that "O et Heribertus comites" were part of the council of Emma Queen of France[222].  It is assumed that "Oddonis/Ottonem/O" all refer to the same person.  However, it is suggested that only the first letter applies to Héribert [III], the change to Héribert [V] (nephew and successor of Héribert [III], son of the latter's brother Robert) being indicated in the subsequent letters by "Heribertum" being named after "Ottonem" instead of before, which suggests that he was the junior of the two from Apr 985.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the burial of "comes Trecensis Heribertus II cognomento Vetulus" in "abbatiam Latiniaci"[223]m (951) as her second husband, EADGIFU, widow of CHARLES III "le Simple" King of the Franks, daughter of EDWARD I King of Wessex & his second wife Ælfleda --- ([902/05][224]-26 Sep after 951, bur Abbaye de Saint-Médard de Soissons).  Flodoard records in 951 that “Ottogeba regina mater Ludowici regis” married “Heriberti...Adalberti fratris” and that “rex Ludowicus iratus” confiscated “abbatiam sanctæ Mariæ...Lauduni” from her and donated it to “Gerbergæ uxori suæ[225]

4.         HUGUES (920-Meaux 962).  Flodoard names "Hugone diacono Heriberti filio", when recording his installation as archbishop of Reims in 940[226].  His father engineered the grant by Raoul King of France of the temporal administration of the archbishopric of Reims to Hugues in 925.  The Annales Remenses record in 926 that, after the death of "Seulfo archipresule", "Hugo filius Heriberti comitis, adhuc quinquennis" was elected[227].  The appointment was confirmed by Pope John X, but the grant was withdrawn by the king in 932 after he besieged the city[228].  Hugues entered holy orders in 940: Flodoard records in 940 that “Widone Suessonico præsule” ordained “Hugo filius Heriberti Remis...presbiter[229].  His father, who had captured Reims in [Jun/Jul] 940, forced Hugues's restoration as archbishop of Reims.  Besieged at Laon, King Louis IV was obliged to confirm Hugues's appointment as archbishop and also appointed Hugues as his Arch-Chancellor.  Hugues was expelled from Reims in 946 when the town was retaken by King Louis.  He was finally deprived of his archbishopric by the papal legate in 948: Flodoard records in 948 that “litteras...ex nomine Agapiti papæ” sent “ad episcopos per clericum suum” ordered “Hugoni” to withdraw from “Remense...episcopium[230].  Flodoard records in 949 that “Agapitus papa” held a synod “apud sanctum Petrum” which confirmed “dampnationem Hugonis episcopi apud Ingulenheim” and excommunicated him[231].  Flodoard records in 962 that “Hugoni” requested reinstatement as archbishop of Reims after the death of Archbishop Artaud but that this was refused[232].  He died on returning from a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela[233]

5.         LUITGARDIS (before 925-14 Nov after 985, bur Chartres, Abbaye de Saint-Père).  Rodulfus Glauber refers to the wife of Comte Guillaume as "sororem [Heribertum Trecorum comitem]", specifying that she was childless by her first husband, when recording her second marriage to "Tetbaldus"[234]Guillaume of Jumièges records the marriage of “Normannorum Dux” and "Herbertus...filiam suam", encouraged by “Hugone Magno”, after the marriage of Guillaume’s sister Gerloc [which would date the marriage to [935] if that report is accurate][235].  The Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum refers to the wife of "Tetbaudi comitis" as "sorore Herberti Trecorum comitis"[236].  "Theobaldi comitis…Ledgardis comitisse" subscribed the charter dated 950 under which Ragnfred Bishop of Chartres donated property to Chartres Saint-Père, although the relationship between the two is not specified[237].  "Ledgardis" donated property to "Sancti Petri Carnotensis ecclesiam", for the souls of "senioris mei…comitis Tedbaldi…patris mei Heirberti, Trecassini comitis", with the consent of "archipresule…Hugone et…comite Odone, filiis meis", by charter dated 5 Feb 978, signed by "…Emma comitissa Pictavæ urbis…"[238].  “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][239].  "Hugonis ducis, Odonis comitis, Hugonis sanctæ Bituricensis archipræsulis, Letgardis comitissæ, Bertæ comitissæ, Gauzfridi vicecomitis…" subscribed the charter dated 985 under which "Robertus" donated property to "Sancti Petri Carnotensis", on the advice of "Odonem, simul cum sua matre Ledgarde, pariterque dominam meam Bertam, ipsius æque coniugem"[240].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "XVIII Kal Dec" of "Letgardis comitissa"[241]m firstly ([935]) as his second wife, GUILLAUME I “Longuespée” Comte [de Normandie], son of ROBERT I [Rollo] Comte [de Normandie] & his [second] wife Poppa de Bayeux (-murdered Péquigny-sur-Somme 17 Dec 942, bur Rouen, cathédrale de Notre-Dame).  m secondly ([942/45]) THIBAUT [II] "le Tricheur" Comte de Blois, son of THIBAUT [I] "l'Ancien" Comte de Blois, Vicomte de Tours & his first wife --- (-16 Jan [975/77]). 

6.         ROBERT (-after 19 Jun 966).  "Rodberti filium Heriberti comitis" witnessed a charter of "Gauzfredus comes" dated Jul 940[242].  Under the division of territories organised after his father's death in 943, Robert became Comte de Meaux.  He became Comte de Troyes in 956 on the death of his father-in-law, by right of his wife. 

-        COMTES de TROYES

7.         ADALBERT [Albert] (-8 Sep 987).  Flodoard names "Adalbertus filius Heriberti"[243].  Under the division of territories organised after his father's death in 943, Albert became Comte de Vermandois

-        see below

8.         [GUY (-after [986]).  Dormay, in his Histoire de la ville de Soissons, records that "M. Renaut…dit avoir vu un manuscrit de Sainte-Croix d’Offemont, lequel ne se trouve plus" in which "Guy Comte de Soissons est appellé fils de Heribert Comte de Vermandois"[244]Comte de Soissons.  "…Wido comes…" confirmed the charter dated Jun 974 under which Lothaire King of the West Franks confirmed the privileges of the monastery of Saint-Thierry near Reims[245].  Lothaire King of the West Franks confirmed the privileges of the monastery of Saint-Eloy de Noyon, established by "piæ memoriæ nepos noster Lyudulfus Noviomanorum episcopus…assentientibus fratribus suis nepotibus nostris Alberto Viromandensi comite et Guidone", by charter dated to [980/986], signed by "Alberti Viromandensis comitis, Guidonis fratris eius…"[246].  "Adalbertus comes, Heriberti comitis, Vidonis comitis…" subscribed the charter dated to [980] under which "Adalbertus comes…in meo Virodumensi comitatu" founded the abbey of Mont-Saint-Quentin near Péronne[247].  He visited Rome in the mid-980s: Gerbert requested "Stephano Romanæ æcclesiæ diacono" to return books to him by "Guidonem Suessonicum comitem", dated to late 984[248].] 

-        COMTES de SOISSONS

 

 

ADALBERT [Albert] [I], son of HERIBERT [II] Comte de Vermandois & his wife Adela [Capet] (-8 Sep 987).  Flodoard names "Adalbertus filius Heriberti"[249].  Under the division of territories organised after his father's death in 943, he became Comte de Vermandois.  Comte Albert re-established the abbey of Homblières and built Mont-Saint-Quentin[250]When his brother Hugues was deposed as archbishop of Reims in 948, Comte Albert gave up the family's struggle with Louis IV "d'Outremer" King of France and swore allegiance to the king.  He opposed the election of Hugues Capet as king of France, but eventually submitted[251].  A list of members of the Cathedral of Paris lists (in order) "Albertus comes, Girberga comitissa, Harbertus, Otto, Lewultus, Girbertus, Gondrada, Ricardus, Harbertus comes, Walerannus laicus, Gisla…", the first four individuals named apparently being Comte Albert, his wife and three sons, and the last named maybe his brother or nephew[252]

[m firstly HERESINDE, daughter of ---.  According to the Histoire de Guise, Comte Albert constructed the abbey of Saint-Michel at Rochefort in 945 "d'accord avec la comtesse Hérésinde sa femme", while in 947 Hérésinde founded the nearby Benedictine convent of Bucilly[253].  The source assumes that this refers to Albert Comte de Vermandois, but his supposed first marriage is not mentioned by Settipani[254].  According to the introduction to the Cartulaire de l'abbaye de Bucilly, Bucilly was founded by "Gerberge, femme d'Albert I Comte de Vermandois" although it notes that "certains auteurs ont voulu faire remonter [sa foundation] à la libéralité de Hersinde femme d'Herbert Comte de Vermandois morte en 901"[255].  The Cartulaire reproduces a French translation of a declaration by Barthélemy Bishop of Laon dated 1120 entitled "Privilegium de domino Elberto, Viromandensi comite" according to which the bishop declares that he has read the original charter under which "Elbert comte de Vermandois…et sa femme Gertrude [error for Gerberge]" founded Bucilly[256].  Further research in the original charter documentation is needed to clarify this confusion, not the least of which is that, even if Hérésinde was not the wife of Comte Albert, no other reference has been found to her being the wife of Comte Héribert [I] (see above).] 

m [secondly] ([949/54]) GERBERGA, daughter of GISELBERT Duke of Lotharingia & his wife Gerberga of Germany ([935]-after 7 Sep 978).  Settipani names her as the wife of Comte Albert, and gives her parentage, but does not cite the primary source on which this is based.  A list of members of the Cathedral of Paris lists (in order) "Albertus comes, Girberga comitissa, Harbertus, Otto, Lewultus, Girbertus, Gondrada, Ricardus, Harbertus comes, Walerannus laicus, Gisla…", the first four individuals named apparently being Comte Albert, his wife and three sons, and the last named maybe his brother or nephew[257].  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage more precisely has not been identified. 

Comte Albert & his [second] wife had [four] children: 

1.         HERIBERT [IV] ([954]-29 Aug [993]).  A list of members of the Cathedral of Paris lists (in order) "Albertus comes, Girberga comitissa, Harbertus, Otto, Lewultus, Girbertus, Gondrada, Ricardus, Harbertus comes…", the first four individuals named apparently being Comte Albert, his wife and three sons, and the last named maybe his brother or nephew[258]Héribert [IV] succeeded his father in 987 as Comte de Vermandoism (before [982/86]) [as her first husband,] ERMENGARDIS, daughter of ---.  "Comes Heribertus" names "materque mea Pavia…pater meus Otto, eius genitrix, avia mea Ermengardis" donated property to Notre-Dame de Homblières by charter dated [13 Jan/13 Oct] 1045[259].  According to Ernest Petit[260], Ermengardis was the widow of Milon [IV] Comte de Tonnerre.  The author highlights a charter of Ermengardis Ctss de Vermandois witnessed by Renaud Comte de Tonnerre.  He suggests that Comte Renaud would only have done this if he were the son of Ermengardis, although other explanations must be possible.  Settipani points out[261] that Ermengardis is named as the wife of Héribert [IV] in a document of her father-in-law Albert [I] Comte de Vermandois, relating to the abbey of Homblières, dated some time between 982 and the death of Comte Albert (in 987).  If the two marriages apply to the same Ermengardis, Comte Héribert must have been her first husband and Comte Milon her second.  However, it is not clear that this suggested co-identity is correct, a simpler explanation being that there were two different individuals named Ermengardis.  Ernest Petit also suggests[262] that Ermengardis (wife of Comte Milon) was heiress of Bar-sur-Seine, in order to explain how her granddaughter by Comte Milon, Eustachie, transmitted this county to her husband Gauthier de Brienne.  He identified the father of Ermengardis as "Renaud Comte de Bar-sur-Seine" based on two charters, which he dated to 992 and 997, which name "Rainardus comes" whom he identifies with Rainard, son of miles Raoul de Bar, who is mentioned in the Chronicle of St Bénigne[263].  There appears to be no other evidence of the existence of this person, and Bouchard[264] points out that the dating of the two charters in question is uncertain.  She suggests that it is more likely that "Rainardus" is identified with Renaud Comte de Sens or with "Rainaldus" son of Ermengardis.  This of course leaves open the question how Bar-sur-Seine was transmitted to the Tonnerre family.  Comte Heribert [IV] & his wife had two children:

a)         ALBERT [II] ([985/90]-[1 Feb 1015/1017]).  The Gesta Episcoporum Cameracensium names "Alberto Vermandensi comiti, fratri Ottonis"[265].  He succeeded his father in [1000] as Comte de Vermandois.  He abdicated before 15 Jul 1010[266]

b)         EUDES [Otto] ([985/90]-25 May 1045).  He succeeded in [1021] as Comte de Vermandois.

2.         OTTO ([950/55]-after 2 Nov [958/59]).  "Ottonem, Alberti Vermandensium comitis filium" is named in the Gesta Episcoporum Cameracensium[267].  A list of members of the Cathedral of Paris lists (in order) "Albertus comes, Girberga comitissa, Harbertus, Otto, Lewultus, Girbertus, Gondrada, Ricardus, Harbertus comes…", the first four individuals named apparently being Comte Albert, his wife and three sons, and the last named maybe his brother or nephew[268]Otto is named with his parents in a charter of Comte Adalbert dated 2 Nov [958/59][269]same person as…?  OTTO (-[986/87] or after).  There appears to be no direct proof that Otto, ancestor of the Comtes de Chiny, was the same person as Otto, son of Adalbert Comte de Vermandois.  The Historia Monasterii Mosomense records that "Ottonem comitem" built "castellum…Warcus" (Warcq, Ardennes) in 971, and suggests his affiliation when, in a later passage, it clarifies that "superius dictus Ottho erat comes, Otthonum…Romanorum imperatorum…germanissima progenies"[270].  The editor of the MGH SS edition of the Historia identifies Otto with the son of Adalbert Comte de Vermandois and Gerberge, daughter of Emperor Otto I's sister[271].  A subsequent passage of the Historia dates the foundation of the monastery to 24 Jul 971[272], implying that the events recorded earlier in the text predated this foundation.  If this is correct, 971 seems early for Otto de Vermandois to have constructed Warcq in light of his estimated birth date (which appears reasonably robust).  Gerbert, in a letter dated to Oct 986, records that "dux Cono pro suo Ottone insidias molitur"[273].  In the same letter, he also records that "Laudunensis episcopus" left "Dordingum" (Dourdon?) on the advice of "Ottonis et Heriberti" in support of "ducem" (which appears to refer to Hugues Capet).  Settipani suggests that "Otto" in this text refers to the holder of Warcq[274].  However, all other passages in Gerbert's letters which name "Ottonis et Heriberti" (in that order) appear to refer to Eudes I Comte de Blois and his first cousin Héribert [V] Comte de Troyes.  It is unclear from the full text of this letter whether "Ottone" and "Ottonis" relate to the same person.  "Dux Cono" has not been identified, although it may refer to Konrad I Duke of Swabia.  If this is correct, it is possible that the first "Ottone" is a different person from the second "Ottonis" as there is no other passage which links the Blois count to the Swabian duke.  Settipani states that Otto died "between 986 and 987", without specifying the basis for this speculation[275]

The town of Guise lies on the river Oise in eastern Picardie, south-east of Cambrai and east of Saint-Quentin.  In Roman times, it fell administratively within the pagus Teoracensis [Thiérache][412].  Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks granted the fiefs of Hucquigny, near Guise, and Hannape to the historian Nithard in 845[413].  Nithard, childless by his wife Erchanfride, donated his fiefdoms to the abbey of Prüm, Hannape being transferred subsequently to the abbey of Prémontré[414].  It is thought that the fortress of Guise was constructed in the late 9th/early 10th century, the châtelains being vassals of the Comtes de Vermandois[415].  The construction of the castle of Guise, which replaced the old fortress, is generally attributed to Godefroi de Guise (see below)[416].  The Seigneurs de Guise also possessed the castles of Lesquielles and Hirson, and their two chapels[417]

 

The origin of the later Seigneurs de Guise is not known.  According to the Histoire de Guise, "Gauthier de Saint-Aubert avait épousé vers 986 une sœur du comte de Vermandois…Eleonore", the author speculating on the possibility of a relationship between Gauthier de Saint-Aubert and the family of the Seigneurs de Guise[418]

 

 

1.         GAUTHIER de Guise (-after 5 Aug 1058).  "Walteri de Guisia" subscribed a charter of Henri I King of France in favour of the monastery of Hasnon dated 5 Aug 1058[419]

 

2.         GEOFFROY de Guise The construction of the castle of Guise, which replaced the old fortress, is generally attributed to Godefroi de Guise[420]Seigneur de Guisem as her first husband, ADA de Ramerupt, daughter of HILDUIN [IV] de Montdidier et de Ramerupt Comte de Roucy & his wife Adelaide de Roucy ([1040/60]-after 1121, bur Abbaye de Liessies).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Ada…de Guisia" as sixth daughter of Hilduin Comte de Roucy[421]The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "quartam…Hilduini comitis filiam Adam" as wife firstly of "Godefridus de Guisia" and secondly of "Galterum de Aat" and thirdly of "Theoderico de Avesnis"[422].  She married secondly Gauthier Seigneur de Ath, and thirdly Thierry Seigneur d'Avesnes.  "Wido Lescheriensis…et Guisiensis" granted rights to the abbey of Saint-André du Câteau, for the souls of "meæ et coniugis meæ Adeluyæ", by undated charter, signed by "filiorum meorum Adam et Burgardi…" and later confirmed by the bishop of Laon by charter dated 1121 at the request of "Guido de Gusia rogatu uxoris suæ Adeluyæ et matris suæ Adæ" and with the consent of "filiis suis Adam et Burchardo"[423].  She built the convent of Lessies with her third husband, where she retired after his death and was buried[424].  Geoffroy & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         GUY de Guise (-after 1124)The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem" as son of "Godefridus de Guisia" & his wife[425]Seigneur de Guise

-        see below

b)         [ALBERT de Guise (-after 1141).  Albert de Guise is named in a charter of Nicolas Bishop of Cambrai dated 1141[426].  His parentage is not known, but from a chronological point of view he coild have been the son of Geoffroy Seigneur de Guise.] 

 

 

GUY de Guise, son of GEOFFROY Seigneur de Guise & his wife Ada de Ramerupt ([1060/80]-after 1124)The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem" as son of "Godefridus de Guisia" & his wife[427]Seigneur de Guise"Widonis de Lecherii [Lesquielles]" subscribed the charter dated 1104 under which Godefroi de Ribemont donated property to the monastery of Saint-Prix[428], the castle of Lesquielles being another property of the Seigneurs de Guise (see above).  Barthélemy Bishop of Laon confirmed that “Elbertus et noster vice dominus” donated “partem...silve Aurigniaci” to Foigny, with the consent of “filii sui Willelmi et filiarum suarum Gisle et Dode...et Guidonis de Guisia”, by undated charter, dated to after 1115[429].  Barthélemy Bishop of Cambrai confirmed the donation of “alodium de S. Germano, villas de Paciis, de Estrea” made to Famy abbey by “Guidone de Guisia consanguineo nostro” with the consent of “uxoris suæ Aeluidis quæ vulgo Machania dicitur”, by charter dated Dec 1120, in the presence of “Gerardi de S. Auberto...Guasconis de Thorota, Petri de Malovicino...[430]The family relationship between the bishop and the Guise family has not yet been traced.  "Wido Lescheriensis…et Guisiensis" granted rights to the abbey of Saint-André du Câteau, for the souls of "meæ et coniugis meæ Adeluyæ", by undated charter, signed by "filiorum meorum Adam et Burgardi…" and later confirmed by the bishop of Laon by charter dated 1121 at the request of "Guido de Gusia rogatu uxoris suæ Adeluyæ et matris suæ Adæ" and with the consent of "filiis suis Adam et Burchardo"[431].  Guy de Guise donated property to the abbey of Saint-Prix de Saint-Quentin by charter dated 1123[432]

m as her first husband, ADELINE [Machaine], daughter of ---.  It is possible that she was Adeline de Montmorency, daughter of Bouchard [III] Seigneur de Montmorency & his first wife Agnes de Beaumont.  Her parentage and marriage are suggested by Orderic Vitalis who records that "Petrus…Manliæ" married "Adam, Burchardi de Montemorentii neptem et comitis Gisinarum filiam"[433].  Le Prévost assumes that "comitis Gisinarum" refers to the comte de Guines and states that "Ade fille de Manassès comte de Guines et d’Emme de Tancarville" married "en effet Pierre de Maule et mourut sans enfants avant son père"[434].  He cites no source which provides the basis for his statement, while conceding that he found no family relationship between the Montmorency and Guines families.  Duchesne also assumes that Guines is the correct interpretation, although, on the basis that "neptem" indicates niece, he suggests that the relationship was through a daughter of Hervé Seigneur de Montmorency (which appears difficult to sustain from a chronological point of view)[435].  No record has been found in other primary sources that Robert [Manassès] Comte de Guines had another daughter besides Sibylle [Rose] who married Henri Châtelain de Bourbourg (see above in the present document).  However, it is possible that "Gisinarum" refers to "Guise" (which is normally referred to in primary sources in Latin as "Guisia" or "Guisciensis") and that the granddaughter of Bouchard [III] Seigneur de Montmorency (assuming that "neptem" in Orderic’s passage indicates grand-daughter, not niece) was the daughter of the seigneur de Guise.  If this is correct, the chronology dictates that her father must have been Guy Seigneur de Guise.  This proposed parentage is corroborated by Guy Seigneur de Guise naming his second son Bouchard, presumably after his father-in-law.  Barthélemy Bishop of Cambrai confirmed the donation of “alodium de S. Germano, villas de Paciis, de Estrea” made to Famy abbey by “Guidone de Guisia consanguineo nostro” with the consent of “uxoris suæ Aeluidis quæ vulgo Machania dicitur”, by charter dated Dec 1120[436].  "Wido Lescheriensis…et Guisiensis" granted rights to the abbey of Saint-André du Câteau, for the souls of "meæ et coniugis meæ Adeluyæ", by undated charter, signed by "filiorum meorum Adam et Burgardi…" and later confirmed by the bishop of Laon by charter dated 1121 at the request of "Guido de Gusia rogatu uxoris suæ Adeluyæ et matris suæ Adæ" and with the consent of "filiis suis Adam et Burchardo"[437].  She married secondly Henri ---.  The Histoire de Guise refers to her second marriage, stating that her second husband consented to Adeline's donation to the church of Prémontré at Clairefontaine[438]

1.         SIMON (-after 986).  Gomart says that Simon was “issue de la grande maison des comtes de Vermandois” but cites no source on which he bases his statement[466].  It appears that Simon is named only in the one source which follows, which provides no indication of his family origin.  Châtelain de Ham.  “...Symonis castellani de Ham...” subscribed the charter dated 986 under which “Albertus comes” donated land “ad Hamum” to found the abbey of Saint-Prix[467]

The principle landholdings of the Flamenc family, who from their name must have originated in Flanders, were Canny (now Canny-sur-Matz, about 10 kilometres south of Roye, in the present-day French département of Oise, arrondissement Compiègne, canton Lassigny) and Varesnes (also in Oise/Compiègne, canton Noyon).  The primary source documentation which has been consulted during the preparation of this section does not support parts of the family reconstruction offered by Père Anselme[518], although it is of course not known whether he used additional documents which have since disappeared.  The family was studied more recently by Margry, but unfortunately he relied largely on Anselme so perpetuated the difficulties[519].  The major problems in producing a reliable reconstruction are highlighted below. 

In addition to the main line of descent, Margry lists several unconnected Flamenc individuals whose relationships with the main family he could not ascertain on the basis of the sources which he consulted[520].  The difficulty is that “le Flamenc” could indicate more broadly “the Fleming” and so could have been used by many individuals from Flanders who were unconnected with the family of the seigneurs de Canny.  These individuals are not shown below. 

 

 

1.         RAOUL [I] le Flamenc (-after 1128).  Graves states that in 1128 “Raoul I dit Flamenc” held Varesnes, Canny-sur-Matz and Champien (no source cited)[521].  The primary source which confirms this information has not been identified.  [“Drogo de Petrefonte, Radulphus Flamens...” witnessed the charter dated 1144 under which “Radulphus...Cosduni oppidi dominus” donated “decima altaris Sancti Hylarii Cosduni” to Saint-Amand[522].  There is no indication whether this document refers to Raoul [I] or Raoul [II].] 

 

2.         RAOUL [II] le Flamenc (-after [1158]).  [“Drogo de Petrefonte, Radulphus Flamens...” witnessed the charter dated 1144 under which “Radulphus...Cosduni oppidi dominus” donated “decima altaris Sancti Hylarii Cosduni” to Saint-Amand[523].  There is no indication whether this document refers to Raoul [I] or Raoul [II].]  "Radulfus cognomento Flandrensis" confirmed donations made by “Radulfus Daridellus de minuta decima territoriii de Warnaviler” to Ourscamp Notre-Dame by charter dated to [1158][524].  The 30 year interval between this document and the earlier mention of Raoul [I] suggests that the two were different persons. 

 

 

Two brothers:

1.         RAOUL [III] le Flamenc (-after 14 Mar 1215).  Père Anselme records that Raoul [III] was named in 1199 (no citation reference)[525]A charter dated 14 Mar 1214 (O.S.) lists the knights from Vermandois who fought at Bouvines, including “...Albert de Hangest...l’héritier de Raoul de Roie, Raoul d’Estrées...Hugues de Boves, Enguerrand de Boves, Robert de Boves, Gaultier d’Heilly...l’héritier de Hangest...Jean de Roie...Barthélemy de Roie, Gautier d’Avesnes et son frère Ason...Raoul Flament...”[526]

2.         HENRI le Flamenc .  Seigneur de Beauvoir.  Père Anselme records that “Henry le Flamenc seigneur de Beauvoir” found a chapel (unspecified) with the consent of his brother [Raoul [III] le Flamenc] (undated)[527]

 

 

No primary source has been identified which establishes the family relationship between Raoul [III] le Flamenc and Adam le Flamenc: the possibilities include their having been father and son, or brothers. 

 

1.         ADAM le Flamenc (-[1226/27]).  Seigneur de Canny: Graves states that in 1226 “Adam de Canny...” granted privileges to the inhabitants of Varesnes, and that “Raoul IV fils de celui-ci” granted revenues from Varesnes to “sa femme Marie” in 1248 (no source cited)[528].  Père Anselme says that Adam le Flamenc founded “la chapelle d’Ancourt” in 1226[529].  The corresponding primary source has not been identified.  m ---.  The name of Adam’s wife is not known.  Adam & his wife had one child: 

a)         RAOUL [IV] le Flamenc (-after 1248).  Seigneur de Canny: “Raoul de Cauni surnommé Le Flamenc” left the supporters of the count of Flanders and joined the king of France in 1227[530]"Radulfus cognomento Flamenc" confirmed donations made by “dominus Galterus de Antolio miles...tertiam partem decime...de...Antolium” to Ourscamp Notre-Dame by charter dated Feb 1227 (O.S.?)[531].  A list of knights participating in a tournament at Compiègne in Jun 1238 includes “...Raoul Flammens...[532]Graves states that in 1226 “Adam de Canny...” granted privileges to the inhabitants of Varesnes, and that “Raoul IV fils de celui-ci” granted revenues from Varesnes to “sa femme Marie” in 1248 (no source cited)[533]m [firstly] --- de Créquy, daughter of BAUDOUIN [II] Seigneur de Créquy & his wife Marguerite de Saint-Omer.  The late 13th century genealogy by Balduinus de Avennis records that “filiarum...domini Balduini de Creki junioris...quarta” married “domino Rudolpho Flamment” and had “duas...filias”, of whom one married “domino Joanni de Eppe” and the other “domino Gerardo de Sorel[534].  The chronology of her mother’s family suggests this person’s birth in [1195/1220], which indicates Raoul [IV] le Flamenc as her husband.  [m secondly MARIE, daughter of --- (-after 1248).  Graves states that in 1226 “Adam de Canny...” granted privileges to the inhabitants of Varesnes, and that “Raoul IV fils de celui-ci” granted revenues from Varesnes to “sa femme Marie” in 1248 (no source cited)[535].  It is unclear whether Marie was the name of the daughter of Baudouin [II] de Créquy or was a later wife of Raoul [IV].  A later marriage is suggested by (1) the genealogy written by Balduinus de Avennis only recording two daughters of Raoul [IV] by his marriage to the daughter of Baudouin [II] de Créquy and (2) the possibility that Raoul [V] le Flamenc (see below), Raoul [IV]’s successor as Seigneur de Canny, was son of the latter and would therefore have been born from a later marriage.]  Raoul [IV] & his [first] wife had two children: 

i)          --- le Flamenc .  The late 13th century genealogy by Balduinus de Avennis records that “filiarum...domini Balduini de Creki junioris...quarta” married “domino Rudolpho Flamment” and had “duas...filias”, of whom one married “domino Joanni de Eppe” and the other “domino Gerardo de Sorel[536]m JEAN Seigneur d’Eppe, son of ---. 

ii)         --- le Flamenc .  The late 13th century genealogy by Balduinus de Avennis records that “filiarum...domini Balduini de Creki junioris...quarta” married “domino Rudolpho Flamment” and had “duas...filias”, of whom one married “domino Joanni de Eppe” and the other “domino Gerardo de Sorel[537]m GERARD Seigneur de Sorel, son of ---. 

 

 

Two brothers.  No primary source has been identified which confirms that Raoul le Flamenc Seigneur de Carempuy was the same person as Raoul [III] le Flamenc Seigneur de Canny.  As noted above, Carempuy was recorded in 1128 as one of the Flamenc family properties but it is possible that it was granted to a younger branch of the family, along with Biarre which was held by Pierre, Raoul’s brother as shown below. 

 

1.         RAOUL le Flamenc (-after 1220).  Seigneur de Carempuy: Raoul Flamand chevalier seigneur de Carrépuis” confirmed the donation made by “son frère Pierre Flamand seigneur de Biarre” for building a church at Biarre, by charter dated 1220[538]

2.         PIERRE le Flamenc (-after 1220).  Seigneur de Biarre: Raoul Flamand chevalier seigneur de Carrépuis” confirmed the donation made by “son frère Pierre Flamand seigneur de Biarre” for building a church at Biarre, by charter dated 1220[539]

 

 

No primary source has been identified which confirms the parentage of Raoul [V] le Flamenc Seigneur de Canny.  Presumably he succeeded Raoul [IV].  As noted above, the genealogy written by Balduinus de Avennis records that Raoul [IV] had two daughters by his marriage to the daughter of Baudouin [II] Seigneur de Créquy.  If Raoul [V] was Raoul [IV]’s son, he would presumably have been born from a later marriage.  Maybe Marie, named as Raoul [IV]’s wife in 1248, was his mother. 

 

1.         RAOUL [V] le Flamenc (-after 1289)A charter dated Jul 1257 records that "Ysabella dicta le Lombarde" asserted that “Heluidis dicta de Amblegni defuncta, civis quondam Noviomensis” at the time of her death held properties in Noyon including land “quos tenet dominus Radulfus Flamens juxta Hedinum septimam garbam[540].  Seigneur de Varesnes: a charter dated Jan 1261 (O.S.?) records an agreement between “Raoul de Flamens chevalier sire de Varesnes, Aubert de Hangest écuyer sire de Genlis, Aubry de Lachény écuyer” and the bishop of Noyon regarding “l’exploitation des bois du Caisnoy[541].  Seigneur de Canny: "Raous Flamens chevaliers sires de Kauni" exchanged property “seans a la Carmoie entre...Lescouvillon et men manoir de Biauvoir” with Ourscamp Notre-Dame by charter dated Aug 1276[542]Maréchal de France [1285]: the genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Messire Eustasses Torchapeaux sire de Conflans et de Mareuil” and his wife had one daughter who married “en monseigneur Flaman de Canny qui fut mareschal de France au voiage d’Arragon[543]A charter dated 1289 records an agreement between Ourscamp and "Radulfum Flamenc" relating to “terra de Waescort[544]m ([1250]) --- de Conflans, daughter of EUSTACHE [II] Seigneur de Conflans & his wife Helvide de Thourotte.  The genealogy of the Conflans family, written in [1350], records that “Messire Eustasses Torchapeaux sire de Conflans et de Mareuil” and his wife had one daughter who married “en monseigneur Flaman de Canny qui fut mareschal de France au voiage d’Arragon[545].  The chronology of the Conflans family suggests that the marriage should be dated very approximately to around [1250]. 

 

 

No primary source has been identified which confirms the parentage of Raoul [VI].  From a chronological point of view, it is likely that he was a different person from Raoul [V], whose son he could have been as shown by Père Anselme[546]

 

1.         RAOUL [VI] le Flamenc (-killed in battle Courtrai 11 Jul 1302).  "Raoul Flamens chevalier sires de Cauni" relinquished revenue in favour of Ourscamp by charter dated Apr 1301[547].  The Chronique Artésienne names “...Mesires Raous Flamens...” among those killed at the battle of Courtrai (11 Jul 1302)[548]m [ELEONORE], daughter of --- (-after 1313).  Père Anselme states that the widow of Raoul [VI] “fit bâtir la grosse tour de Varennes ès années 1310, 1311, 1312, 1313 et acquit la terre de Mondescourt[549].  He identifies “Eléonore de Hangest” (whom he says was daughter of Aubert [VI] de Hangest) as Raoul [VI]’s wife, which is chronologically impossible given the date of birth of Aubert [VI]’s daughter (see below).  Richemond says that Raoul [VI]’s wife was the daughter of Aubert [V] de Hangest and his wife [Eléonore] de Villebéon[550].  He cites no source to corroborate this information, which he bases on the chronological impossibility of the death in 1302 of the husband of a daughter of Aubert [VI].  He does not consider the explanation that Eléonore’s husband was misidentified by Père Anselme.  Copies of the 1310-1313 sources to which Anselme refers have not been found.  It is not known therefore whether they name Raoul [VI]’s widow “Eléonore”, although that could explain Anselme’s confusion about Eléonore de Hangest if they did.  If, in addition, the 1310-1313 documents name her “Eléonore de Hangest”, Raoul [VI] must have married a different person of that name born in an earlier generation of the Hangest family.  From a chronological point of view, that person could have been the daughter of Aubert [V], although this would add the problem of possible consanguinity between the younger Eléonore de Hangest and her husband to the other difficulties in reconstructing the Flamenc line. 

 

 

The identity of the husband of Jeanne de Chaumont is open to some debate.  As noted below, Père Anselme names her as the second wife of Raoul [V][551].  From a chronological point of view, she could also have been an earlier wife of Raoul [VI] whom he married before [Eléonore].  If an earlier wife, not [Eléonore], was the mother of Raoul [VI]’s children, the potential consanguinity problem between Eléonore de Hangest and her unnamed husband (see below) would be resolved assuming, as suggested by secondary authors discussed above, that [Eléonore] was also a member of the Hangest family. 

 

1.         RAOUL le Flamencm JEANNE de Chaumont, daughter of --- (-1299, bur Morfontaine).  Père Anselme names “Jeanne de Chaumont enterrée à Morfontaine en 1299” as the second wife of Raoul [V][552].  Her parentage has not been identified and no primary source has been found which confirms Anselme’s statement or helps identify her husband. 

 

 

Identifying the unnamed husband of Eléonore de Hangest shown below represents the hub of the difficulties in reconstructing the Flamenc family during the late 13th and early 14th centuries.  Père Anselme says that he was Raoul [VI] who was killed at Courtrai[553].  Considering Eléonore’s date of birth, that is the only case which is impossible.  Among the actual possibilities are:

(1)     He was the oldest son of Raoul [VI], who succeeded his father as seigneur de Canny.  If that is correct, one would expect his name to be “Raoul”, although that would render problematic the parentage of Raoul [VII] who is shown below: one solution would be the existence of an even older son of Raoul [VI], also named Raoul, who died before the birth of Raoul [VII].  This case also triggers a potential consanguinity problem if the mother of “--- le Flamenc” was [Eléonore], the known wife of Raoul [VI], who as suggested by secondary sources quoted above may also have been a member of the Hangest family: as noted above, this problem would be resolved if Raoul [VI]’s children were born from an earlier marriage, maybe to Jeanne de Chaumont.  Whether “--- le Flamenc” was seigneur de Canny is also questionable: as noted below, Père Anselme provides the only indication when he namesEléonore de Hangest dame de Cany” in relation to the 1329 lawsuit discussed below[554].  It is not known whether Anselme noted this name and title from contemporary documentation relating to the lawsuit which he had seen, a question which can only be settled after such documentation is examined (no citation reference to those documents is given in any of the secondary sources consulted).  If Anselme is incorrect, and Eléonore’s husband was not seigneur de Canny, he could have been a younger son of Raoul [V], which is case (2)

(2)     He was a younger brother of Raoul [VI] who received Varesnes as his share of the family properties.  This case solves the potential Hangest consanguinity problem, but would collapse if a source emerges which indicates that ownership of Varesnes was never separated from Canny. 

(3)     He was the same person as Raoul [VII] le Flamenc (see below), in which case Eléonore de Hangest was his second wife married after Jeanne de Chartres died and before he married Yolande d’Enghien.  This case is the most straightforward of the three as it does not presume the existence of additional family members who do not feature in Père Anselme’s “traditional” Flamenc reconstruction.  It would involve the same potential Hangest consanguinity problem highlighted under case (1), and it would collapse if sources emerge dating Raoul [VII]’s marriage to Yolande d’Enghien to before 1329.  The main difficulty with case (3) is the apparent absence of her husband from Eléonore de Hangest’s 1329 lawsuit, which suggests that he was deceased at the time (although he could merely have been temporarily absent). 

In conclusion, all three cases require further primary source information to confirm their viability.  On the basis of the limited information presently available, the only safe conclusion is that Père Anselme’s reconstruction of the family is incorrect in some indefined way. 

 

1.         --- le Flamenc (-[before 1329, maybe before 1324])No primary source has been found which names the husband of Eléonore de Hangest.  His possible parentage is discussed above.  [Seigneur de Varesnes: a charter dated 1314 lists “li noble et li communs des pays de Vermandois de Biauvoisis Dartois de Pontiu et de la terre de Corbye” against Philippe IV King of France, refusing to accept further alteration of money and increase in taxes, and includes “...li sires de Varennes...[555].  The chronology suggests that the person named in this document was the person who later married Eléonore de Hangest.]  His suggested date of death assumes that Eléonore de Hangest’s husband was deceased when she pleaded in her own name in the 1329 lawsuit, although as pointed out above under case (3) it is possible that he was temporarily absent at the time.  m ([1315] or after) ELEONORE de Hangest, daughter of AUBERT [VI] de Hangest Seigneur de Genlis & his second wife Agnes [de Bruyères] ([1303 or after]-after 1336).  Père Anselme says that Eléonore was the daughter of Aubert [VI] and that she sued (1) “la comtesse de Soissons et la dame de Barbançon” [daughters of Aubert [VI]’s second wife by her first marriage] in 1329 for the succession of “sa mère” and (2) in 1336 the bishop of Noyon[556].  Margry provides more details, recording that “Eléonore de Hangest Genlis”, whom he calls widow of “Raoul le Flamenc VI seigneur de Canny” (clearly misidentified considering his death at Courtrai in 1302), “conjointement avec Mathieu de Hangest-Hugueville son frère” sued “la Comtesse de Soissons et la Dame de Barbanson” in 1329 relating to “la succession de Dame Agnès de Bruyères leur mère[557]The dates of Eléonore’s birth and marriage are estimated from her parents’ marriage in Jun 1302.  Père Anselme, in one of his numerous references to the lawsuit involving Eléonore, notes that her brother Mathieu’s widow “comme tutrice de ses enfans” made a follow-up claim in 1347[558].  Anselme makes no mention either of Eléonore de Hangest, or of any of her children, participating in that 1347 claim.  If Mathieu’s widow acted alone at that time, it is probable that Eléonore predeceased her and that she had died childless. 

 

 

No primary source has been found which confirms the parentage of Raoul [VII] le Flamenc, although the chronology suggests that he was the son of Raoul [VI]. 

 

1.         RAOUL [VII] le Flamenc (-after 12 Mar [1360/61], bur Ourscamp).  Seigneur de Canny: Père Anselme records that “Raoul le Flamenc VII du nom, sire de Cany” was “souverain maître d’hôtel de la reine en 1324[559].  Père Anselme also records that “Raoul le Flamenc VII du nom, sire de Cany” sued “le chapitre de Noyon” in 1325 and “le vidame de Chartres” in 1329 and 1334 “pour le legs que sa femme lui avoit fait par son testament[560]Levasseur records the foundation of a chapel “au Chasteau de Varenne, proche [de] Salency” by “messire Raoul Flamen sieur de Canny” and confirmed by “Raoul Flamen son fils” by charter dated 1343[561]Père Anselme records that he was imprisoned near Creil “avec Raoul, Jean et Aubert le Flamenc ses enfans” in 1358 “à la journée de Malconseil” and paid “dix moutons d’or” as ransom[562]He is named in the 12 Mar 1360 (O.S.?) marriage contract of his granddaughter Jeanne de Coucy.  An epitaph at Ourscamp records the burial of “Raoul fils de Flament Seigneur de Canni” who died 1360 (O.S.?)[563]m firstly JEANNE de Chartres, daughter of --- Vidame de Chartres & his wife --- (-before 1325).  Her family origin is confirmed by Père Anselme who records that “Raoul le Flamenc VII du nom, sire de Cany” sued “le chapitre de Noyon” in 1325 and “le vidame de Chartres” in 1329 and 1334 “pour le legs que sa femme lui avoit fait par son testament[564].  The documents relating to these lawsuits have not been found so it cannot be confirmed that they specify “Jeanne” as the name of Raoul’s first wife.  The primary source which confirms her parentage more precisely has not been identified.  m secondly YOLANDE d’Enghien, daughter of GAUTHIER [II] Seigneur d'Enghien & his wife Yolande de Flandre (before 1310- ----, bur Ourscamp).  Père Anselme records her marriage and family origin without citing any sources on which this information is based[565]Raoul [VII] & his [first/second] wife had four children: 

a)         RAOUL [VIII] le Flamenc (-after 31 Aug 1387)Levasseur records the foundation of a chapel “au Chasteau de Varenne, proche [de] Salency” by “messire Raoul Flamen sieur de Canny” and confirmed by “Raoul Flamen son fils” by charter dated 1343[566]Père Anselme records that he was imprisoned near Creil “avec Raoul, Jean et Aubert le Flamenc ses enfans” in 1358 “à la journée de Malconseil” and paid “dix moutons d’or” as ransom[567].  A judgment dated 16 Nov 1368 relates to the testament of [his niece] "defuncta Ioanna de Couciaco domicella vicecomitissa Meldensis uxor...Ioannis de Castellione scutiferi” against her executors who include “...Radulfum Flamingi dominum de Canni...[568]Raoul Flament sire de Canny” reached agreement with the abbey of Noyon Saint-Barthélemy concerning rights “de justice et seigneurie de Courcelles” by charter dated 31 Aug 1387[569]m MARIE de Nesle, daughter of GUY de Nesle Seigneur de Mello, Maréchal de France [Clermont] & his first wife --- ([before 1350]-).  Père Anselme records her marriage and parentage without citing any sources on which this information is based[570].  The absence of her descendants from sources describing the disputes regarding the Thouars inheritance (involving Guy de Nesle’s second wife Isabelle de Thouars) indicate that Marie must have been her father’s daughter by his first marriage.  Raoul [VIII] & his wife had children: 

i)          AUBERT le Flamenc (-after 23 Jun 1437).  Seigneur de Canny.  Barante’s Histoire des Ducs de Bourgogne records that “Aubert le Flamenc seigneur de Canny, ancien chambellan du duc” was suspected of involvement in the murder of Louis Duc d’Orléans “[qui] avait séduit sa femme[571]m ([1389]) MARIE d’Enghien, daughter of JACQUES d’Enghien Seigneur d’Havré et de Fagnolle & his wife Marie de Roucy.  Père Anselme names “Yoland ou Mariette d’Enghien” (“Marie d’Enghien fille de Jacques d’Enghien” in another section) as mother of Jean bâtard d’Orléans comte de Dunois, adding that she was “femme d’Aubert le Flamenc seigneur de Cany, chevalier de Picardie, petit-fils de Raoul le Flamenc maréchal de France”, but does not cite the source on which this information is based[572]She was mistress ([1401/02]) of Louis de France Duc d’Orléans.  Père Anselme names “Yoland ou Mariette d’Enghien” as mother of Jean bâtard d’Orléans comte de Dunois, adding that she was “femme d’Aubert le Flamenc seigneur de Cany, chevalier de Picardie, petit-fils de Raoul le Flamenc maréchal de France”, but does not cite the source on which this information is based[573]Barante’s Histoire des Ducs de Bourgogne records that Louis Duc d’Orléans had seduced the wife of “Aubert le Flamenc seigneur de Canny, ancien chambellan du duc” and had a son by her[574].  Aubert & his wife had one child: 

(a)       JEANNE le Flamenc (-end Apr 1460)Dame de Canny et de Varesnes.  “Jehan de Barbenchon sénéchal de Haynau, seigneur de Jeumont et de Varesnes et Jehanne de Cauny nostre espouze fille et héritière de feu Monseigneur Aubert, en son vivant seigneur du dict Cauny et de Varesnes” donated land to Babœuf by charter dated 22 Apr 1453[575]An epitaph at Thure abbey records the burial of “Jehan de Barchenchon chevalier seneschal de Hainaut, baron de Verchin et de Chisoing, premier pair de Flandre...” who died 1 Aug 1470 and of “madame Jenne dame héritière de Canny, de Faignolles, de Warennes, de Quarempuet...son espeuse” who died end Apr 1460[576]m JEAN de Barbançon, son of --- (-1 Aug 1470).

1.         GAUTHIER [de Thourotte] .  m ---.  Gauthier & his wife had one child: 

a)         ALEAUME [de Thourotte] (-after 1034).  “...Alelmi filii Walteri de Tarota...” subscribed the charter dated 1034 under which "Theobaldus et Stephanus germanus meus...comites Francia et Ermengardis comitissa mater noster" confirmed property "in pago Ambianensi...Crisciacum" to the church of Amiens[581]

 

 

1.         LUCIE de Thourotte (-after Mar 1097).  Gauthier Bishop of Cambrai notified that “miles...Hugo dictus Sohierus dominus...in patria nostra” had confirmed donations to Cambrai made by “Soichiero dicto Rufo de Viromandia patre eius”, with the consent of “Luciæ de Torota uxoris eius et filiorum Walteri et Thiobaldi”, by charter dated Mar 1097[582]m HUGUES dit Sohier, son of SOHIER dit Rufus & his wife --- (-after Mar 1097). 

 

2.         GUASCE de Thourotte (-after Dec 1120).  Barthélemy Bishop of Cambrai confirmed the donation of “alodium de S. Germano, villas de Paciis, de Estrea” made to Famy abbey by “Guidone de Guisia consanguineo nostro” with the consent of “uxoris suæ Aeluidis quæ vulgo Machania dicitur”, by charter dated Dec 1120, in the presence of “Gerardi de S.
