About Hoël II (V), duke of Brittany

Hoel II, Duke of Brittany From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Hoel II of Cornwall (b.c. 1031, died 1084) was count of Kernev (French: Cornouaille, Breton: Kernev), from 1058 as Hoel V, and after his marriage to Hawise, Duchess of Brittany in 1066 he became duke-consort of Brittany until his death. Hoel started the Cornwall (Breton: Kerne) dynasty of Brittany, which ruled the duchy until 1156. Little is known of the lives of Hawise of Rennes and Hoel of Cornwall, however their political marriage between the house of Rennes in the east and the house of Cornwall in the west may have further strengthened Brittany at a time when external interference by William I of England. Hoel may have exercised authority through the right of his wife, and continued to control the government after her death in 1072. Hawise and Hoel were succeeded to the ducal throne by their 18-year-son son Alan IV, Duke of Brittany in 1084. -------------------- Hoel II of Cornwall (b.c. 1031, d. 1084) was count of Kernev (French: Cornouaille, Breton: Kernev), from 1058 as Hoel V, and after his marriage to Hawise, Duchess of Brittany in 1066 he became duke-consort of Brittany until his death.
