SECTION 1.


  • 22. MAUGER de Normandie, COUNT OF CORBEIL, son of Richard I, surnamed the Fearless, Duke of Normandy, Chapter 5, Section 1, married Germaine de Corbeil, daughter of Aymon, Count of Corbeil, and his wife Elizabeth, a near relation of Avoye the wife of Hugh the Great and sister of the Emperor Otho. [Mauger was the second son of Richard Duke of Normandy. The records of Normandy do not disclose what, if any, title he held except that of de Normandie, although he married the daughter of Aymon, Count of Corbeil, and must have been given by his parents an estate of equal importance in order that the marriage could be brought about. Mauger is known in history as Count of Corbeil, which title he obtained in right of his wife. The history of Mauger seems to center around that of Corbeil, which we shall briefly notice, particularly so far as it relates to our genealogy. The properties that came to his second son Haymon Dentatus, will give some indication of the great wealth Mauger had in his own right.] Children:

1. *21. GUILLAUME, surnamed WERLAC, Chapter 7, Section 1.

2. Hamon, surnamed Dentatus, Chapter 7, Section 3.

3. Hugh, Bishop of Bayeux, of whom little is known, and upon whose death the bishopric was given to William d'Ivri, and upon his death William the Conqueror gave the bishopric to his brother Odo, whom he afterwards made earl of Kent in England. [Ecclesiastical History of England & Normandy, by Ordericus Vitalis, vol. 2, page 416.]

The series of events which led to Mauger becoming Count of Corbeil began with the death of his Grand father. For when Richard the Fearless, father of Mauger was a little child his father died and he was taken away from Normandy by the King of France under an excuse that the child was to be educated, but really it was to make him a prisoner and possibly to kill him. He was placed in the care of a learned and good man known in history as Osmon the Dane, who took compassion upon him and, by concealing him in a load of hay, carried him safely back to Normandy, and placed him in the custody of his powerful relation Bernard of Senlis, surnamed the Dane. Thereupon Louis, King of France, with the aid of Hugh the Great, in the year 945 made war upon the Normans. Bernard called to his assistance the King of Denmark and King Louis was defeated. Peace was concluded and Richard secured a further grant of territory. Osmon then skill-fully arranged a marriage between the young Duke and Esm6 daughter of Hugh the Great, then Count of Paris and the most powerful man in France.



-------------------- On the ancestry of the Grenville's and parents of Mauger, Count of Corbeil, their ancestor:

Richard I, Duke of Normandy (ggf through his eldest son of Robert II (The Devil), Duke of Normandy, who was in turn father by his mistress Harlette/Harlot of William I (The Conqueror); b 933; married 2nd his former mistress Gunnor and died 20 Nov 996, leaving [Mauger]. [Burke's Peerage, p. 1603] ------------------ Mauger, Count of Corbeil, in right of his wife; married Germaine, daughter and heir of Albert, Count of Corbeil, and had [Hamon, Count of Corbeil], with an elder son (William, dsp a monk in the Abbey of St. Maur). [Burke's Peerage]

Note the above puts the descendancy through William in doubt. Of course being an elder son, he could have been Count at least for a while, and maybe had illegitimate children. Though they would not be Counts.

Count of Mortain. -------------------- Lord of Corbeil and Mortain md of Aymon -------------------- Guillaume de Jumièges records that Robert II Duke of Normandy sent "son oncle paternal Mauger comte de Corbeil" to help Henri I King of France against the rebellion of his mother Queen Constance in [1031/32].
