"Manigenius…miles" founded the priory of Saint-Cyr-lès-Rennes and donated it to Tours Saint-Julien by charter dated 23 May 1037, subscribed by "Alanus dux…Eudonis fratris Alani ducis Britannorum, Gotzelini vicecomitis, Rualentis domini Doli…"[186]. After the death of his brother in 1040, Eudes seized Brittany and excluded his nephew, succeeding as EUDES I Duke of Brittany. According to Orderic Vitalis, Eudes ruled the country "freely without acknowledging any lord for 15 years"[187]. However, his nephew retaliated, captured Eudes and imprisoned him in chains[188].

Havoise de Normandie (ou Hawise), née en 977 et morte à Rennes le 22 février 1034, est une princesse du duché de Normandie.

Fille du duc Richard Sans-Peur et d’une de ses « frilla », Gunnor, d’une puissante famille de la noblesse viking.

Ayant épousé Geoffroi Ier de Bretagne en 1003, alors que son frère Richard II de Normandie prenait pour femme Judith, elle est devenue, à la mort de son mari, duchesse douairière de Bretagne et régente pour son fils mineur Alain III, futur duc des Bretons.

Richard I, Duke of Normandy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Marriages

He married 1st (960) Emma (not to be confused with Emma of France), daughter of Hugh "The Great" of France, and Hedwiga de Sachsen. They were betrothed when both were very young. She died 19 Mar 968, with no issue.

According to Robert of Torigni, not long after Emma's death, Duke Richard went out hunting and stopped at the house of a local forester. He became enamoured of the forester's wife, Seinfreda, but she being a virtuous woman, suggested he court her unmarried sister, Gunnor, instead. Gunnor became his mistress, and her family rose to prominence. Her brother, Herefast de Crepon, may have been involved in a controversial heresy trial. Gunnor was, like Richard, of Norse descent, being a Dane by blood. Richard finally married her to legitimize their children:
