AMAURY [I] (-after 12 Feb 973). Comte [de Hainaut]. [Comte de la marche de Valenciennes]. The Gesta Episcoporum Cameracensium records that Foubert Bishop of Cambrai purported to dissolve the marriage between "filiam Isaac" and "Amulricum comitem…ex pago Heinou" on grounds of consanguinity[162], dated to [953/56] because the preceding passage in the same source discusses the Hungarian invasion in 953 and because Bishop Foubert died in 956. Emperor Otto I donated property to the monastery at Crespin, at the request of "Richizonis atque Amelrici comitum", by charter dated 12 Feb 973[163]. If these two sources are correctly dated, Amaury was count in Hainaut for approximately 20 years from 953 to 973. This period overlaps with the countships of the other known counts of Hainaut who are shown in Chapter 1 of this document. This anomaly is discussed in the Introduction to this chapter. It should be noted that the extract from the Gesta Episcoporum Cameracensium which refers to Amaury's wife describes him as "comitem…ex pago Heinou" rather than "comitem Hainonensis". m ([separated] [953/56]) --- de Cambrai, daughter of ISAAC Comte de Cambrai & his wife ---. The Gesta Episcoporum Cameracensium records that Foubert Bishop of Cambrai purported to dissolve the marriage between "filiam Isaac" and "Amulricum comitem…ex pago Heinou" on grounds of consanguinity[164], dated to [953/56] because the preceding passage in the same source discusses the Hungarian invasion in 953 and because Bishop Foubert died in 956. No contemporary Isaac has been identified other than the Comte de Cambrai, so it is assumed that he was the father of Amaury's wife.
