About Helias du Maine, de la Flèche, Lord of Château-du-Loire

Elias I (also Hélie or Élie; died 11 July 1110), called de la Flèche or de Baugency, was the Count of Maine from 1093. He was the son of the lord of La Flèche, John de Beaugency, and his wife Paula, daughter of Herbert I, Count of Maine.

In 1093, when his cousin Hugh V died, he inherited Maine. With the support of Fulk IV of Anjou, he continued the war with Robert II of Normandy. After Robert's departure with the First Crusade, Elias made peace with William Rufus, Robert's regent in Normandy.

Elias married Matilda, daughter of Gervais, Lord of Château-du-Loir. Their daughter, Eremburg, married Fulk V of Anjou. In 1109, says Orderic Vitalis, Elias remarried to Agnes, the daughter of William VIII of Aquitaine and repudiated wife of Alfonso VI of Castile. This is perhaps confused, it being suggested that the true bride was Alfonso's widow Beatrice.

Hélie (Helias) purchased the county of Maine from his cousin count Hughes V in 1092 [OV viii, 11 (vol. 4, pp. 192-9)]. His assumption of the title of count can be dated between 29 June 1092, when Hugues V was still count [Latouche (1910), 148 (#42)], and 27 July of the same year, when he subscribed a charter of Foulques IV le Réchin, count of Anjou [ibid., 149 (#43)]. Hélie obtained the lordship of Château-du-Loir on the death of his father-in-law Gervaise II, lord of Château-du-Loir. On his death in 1110, both possessions passed to his daughter Éremburge and her husband Fulk of Anjou, becoming a part of the growing Angevin holdings.

In 1109, says Orderic Vitalis, Elias remarried to Agnes, the daughter of 'William of Poitou' and relict of Alfonso VI of Castile. This is perhaps confused, as the name and parentage match that of Alfonso's first wife, but she last appears thirty years earlier. It has been suggested that the true bride was Alfonso's widow Beatrice.
