About Agnès d'Évreux, Comtesse d'Evreux

Agnès was the daughter of Richard d'Evreux and Godechilde (widow of Roger "de Conches" de Tosny), so she was raised as a younger sister of the de Tosny children. She married Simon I de Montfort, Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury, apparently having been abducted by her half-brother Ralph de Tosny and traded to Simon in marriage as his third wife, in exchange for Ralph to marry Simon's sister Isabel.

Through her rights to the honor of Evreux, her heirs became Comtes d'Evreux.

  • Richard de Montfort, Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury
  • Simon II de Montfort, Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury
  • Bertrade de Montfort m. Fulk IV "le Rechin" Comte d'Anjou and Philippe I King of France

He was mortally wounded in an attack on Conches, during the war between Raoul [III] de Tosny and Guillaume Comte d'Evreux triggered by the enmity between their wives[149].

5. SIMON [II] de Montfort (-24 or 25 Sep after 1104). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified. He succeeded his brother in [1092] as Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury.
