About Bertrade de Montfort, Reine des Francs

Bertrade de Montfort was the daughter of Simon I de Montfort and Agnes, Countess of Evereaux.

She first married Fulk IV, Count of Anjou having a son named Fulk of Jerusalem.

She married second, Philip I of France and had:

   * Philip of France, Count of Mantes (living in 1123)
   * Fleury of France, Seigneur of Nangis (living in 1118)
   * Cecile of France (died 1145)

These were her only marriages and only children.

Any inconsistencies are due to erroneous merging of trees by multiple Geni-users. There were a couple Bertrade's with fathers named Simon who were merged. They were of 2 different generations, thus causing multiple errors with children, husbands and close family members. This shall be fixed soon.

[edit] Marriages

The oft-married Fulk IV, Count of Anjou was married to the mother of his son in 1089, when the lovely Bertrade caught his eye. According to the chronicler John of Marmoutier:

The lecherous Fulk then fell passionately in love with the sister of Amaury of Montfort, whom no good man ever praised save for her beauty. For her sake, he divorced the mother of Geoffrey II Martel…

Bertrade and Fulk were married, and they became the parents of a son, Fulk, but in 1092 Bertrade left her husband and took up with King Philip I of France. Philip married her on May 15, 1092, despite the fact that they both had spouses living. He was so enamoured of Bertrade that he refused to leave her even when threatened with excommunication. Pope Urban II did excommunicate him in 1095, and Philip was prevented from taking part in the First Crusade. Astonishingly, Bertrade persuaded Philip and Fulk to be friends.

[edit] Children

Bertrade and Philipe had three children together:

Philippe de France, Count of Mantes (living in 1123)

Fleury de France, seigneur of Nangis (living in 1118)

Cecile of France (died 1145), married (1) Tancred, Prince of Galilee; married (2) Pons of Tripoli

[edit] Later Life

According to Orderic Vitalis, Bertrade was anxious that one of her sons succeed Philip, and sent a letter to King Henry I of England asking him to arrest her stepson Louis. Orderic also claims she sought to kill Louis first through the arts of sorcery, and then through poison. Whatever the truth of these allegations, Louis succeeded Philip in 1108. Bertrade lived on until 1117; William of Malmesbury says: "Bertrade, still young and beautiful, took the veil at Fontevraud Abbey, always charming to men, pleasing to God, and like an angel." Her son from her first marriage was Fulk V of Anjou who later became King of Jerusalem iure uxoris. The dynasties founded by Fulk's sons ruled for centuries, one of them in England (Plantagenet), the other in Jerusalem.

Bertrade de Montfort was apparently very beautiful; can you tell under her stylish dunce cap? The oft-married Fulk IV, Count of Anjou, was married to the mother of his son Geoffrey in 1089, when the lovely Bertrade caught his eye. According to the chronicler John of Marmoutier: "The lecherous Fulk then fell passionately in love with the sister of Amaury of Montfort [that would be Bertrade], whom no good man ever praised save for her beauty. For her sake, he divorced the mother of Geoffrey II Martel…"

Bertrade and Fulk were married, and they became the parents of a son, Fulk, but in 1092 Bertrade left her husband and took up with King Philip I of France. (Other histories say she was "abducted" by the King, but I bet she was happy to go.) Philip married her on May 15, 1092, despite the fact that they both had spouses living. He was so enamored of Bertrade that he refused to leave her even when threatened with excommunication. Pope Urban II did excommunicate him in 1095, and Philip was prevented from taking part in the First Crusade.

Astonishingly, Bertrade persuaded Philip and Fulk to be friends.

Bertrade bore three children with King Philip (who already had four children, including his heir Louis [our ancestor], with his first wife). According to Orderic Vitalis, Bertrade was anxious that one of her sons succeed Philip, and sent a letter to King Henry I of England asking him to arrest her stepson Louis. Orderic also claims she sought to kill Louis first through the arts of sorcery, and then through poison. Whatever the truth of these allegations, Louis succeeded Philip in 1108.

Bertrade lived on until 1117; William of Malmesbury says: "Bertrade, still young and beautiful, took the veil at Fontevraud Abbey, always charming to men, pleasing to God, and like an angel."
