ROGER [II] de Montgommery, son of ROGER [I] Seigneur de Montgommery and Vicomte de l'Hiémois & his wife Josceline --- (-Shrewsbury 27 Jul 1094, bur Shrewsbury Abbey[410]).

The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Rogerum de Montgommeri" as son of "Iosceline"[412]. His father's name is confirmed by the charter dated to [1079/82] under which "Roger ex Northmannis Northmannus son of Roger" donated property to St Martin, Troarn for the soul of "his wife Mabel lately deceased"[413]. He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Montgommery, Vicomte de l'Hiémois.

A charter dated 1066 records his pardoning the abbey of Sainte-Trinité de Rouen for a calumny[419]. Orderic Vitalis records that King William gave him "first of all Arundel castle and the town of Chichester"[420], afterwards creating him Earl of Shrewsbury [1/4] Dec 1074, presumably with the intention of strengthening the defence of the western part of the country against Welsh incursions.

He was arrested in 1112, imprisoned at Cherbourg and all his lands and honours forfeited. He was imprisoned at Wareham Castle, Dorset from Jul 1113[446].

-------------------- Mabille was also called Maud Talvas, and also Mabel, and also called Mabel d' Alençon (since she was comtesse d'Alençon).

Mabille was "of small height, [grande babillarde], very artificial, strongly inclined to evil, disposed to [enjouce], bold, given to cruel excess" according to her contemporaries William de Jumieges and Orderic Vital.

Mabille died before 5 December 1082.

"Amongst her victims was Hugh de la Roche d'lgé, in the Canton de Belesme, from whom she had wrested his castle on the rock, and had deprived of the inheritance of the lands of his fathers. In the extremity of his distress he undertook a desperate enterprise. With the assistance of his three brothers, men of undaunted courage, he forced an entry by night into the chamber of the Countess (for such was her rank at that time) at a place called Bures, on the Dive, near Froarn, and severed her head from her body as she lay in bed after having taken a bath."

Mabille de Bellême, comtesse d'Alençon was buried in Froarn, Normandy.
