http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ermengarde,_Countess_of_Maine

Ermengarde or Erembourg of Maine, also known as Erembourg de la Flèche (died 1126), was Countess of Maine and the Lady of Château-du-Loire from 1110 to 1126. She was the daughter of Elias (Helias) I of Maine, Count of Maine, and Mathilda of Château-du-Loire.

In 1109 she married Fulk V of Anjou, thereby finally bringing Maine under Angevin control. She gave birth to:

  1. Geoffrey V, Count of Anjou (d. 1151)
  2. Elias II of Maine (d. 1151)
  3. Matilda of Anjou (d. 1154), who married William Adelin, the son and heir to Henry I of England. William was the eldest son and heir of Henry I of England and his wife Matilda of Scotland. His death and that of his brother caused a succession crisis, culminating in The Anarchy.
  4. Sibylla of Anjou (d. 1165), married in 1121 to William Clito, and then (after an annulment in 1124) to Thierry, Count of Flanders. William Clito was the son of Robert Curthose, Duke of Normandy, by his marriage with Sibylla of Conversano. He had a claim on both Normandy and England, and became count of Flanders. Thierry of Alsace, in Flanders known as Diederik van den Elzas, was count of Flanders from 1128 to 1168. He was the youngest son of Duke Thierry II, Duke of Lorraine and Gertrude of Flanders.

She died in 1126, on either the 15th January or the 12 October. After her death, Fulk left his lands to their son Geoffrey, and set out for the Holy Land, where he married Melisende of Jerusalem and became King of Jerusalem. The Holy Land, generally refers to the geographical region of the Levant called Land of Canaan or Land of Israel in the Bible, and constitutes the Promised land.

Melisende of Jerusalem was Kingdom of Jerusalem from 1131 to 1152, and regent for her son between 1153-1161 while he was on campaign. She was the eldest daughter of King Baldwin II of Jerusalem, and the Armenian princess Morphia of Melitene.
