About Eudes I 'Borel' de Bourgogne, duc de Bourgogne

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odo_I,_Duke_of_Burgundy

Odo I (1058 – 23 March 1103), also known as Eudes, surnamed Borel and called the Red, was Duke of Burgundy between 1079 and 1103. Odo was the second son of Henry of Burgundy and grandson of Robert I. He became the duke following the abdication of his older brother, Hugh I, who retired to become a Benedictine monk.[1] Odo married Sibylla of Burgundy (1065–1101), daughter of William I, Count of Burgundy.

They had:

  • Helie of Burgundy 1080–1141, wife of Bertrand of Toulouse and William III of Ponthieu
  • Florine of Burgundy 1083–1097, wife of Sweyn the Crusader, prince of Denmark
  • Hugh II of Burgundy 1084–1143
  • Henry 1087–1131, a priest

An interesting incident is reported of this robber baron by an eyewitness, Eadmer, biographer of Anselm of Canterbury. While Saint Anselm was progressing through Odo's territory on his way to Rome in 1097, the bandit, expecting great treasure in the archbishop's retinue, prepared to ambush and loot it. Coming upon the prelate's train, the duke asked for the archbishop, whom they had not found. Anselm promptly came forward and took the duke by surprise, saying "My lord duke, suffer me to embrace thee." The flabbergasted duke immediately allowed the bishop to embrace him and offered himself as Anselm's humble servant.

He was a participant in the ill-fated Crusade of 1101.
