About Philippe I d'Aunoy (d'Aulnay), Seigneur de Grand-Moulin & de Villeron

Gauthier Aunay, or Aulnay (circa 1288/1291 - Pontoise, April 19, 1314 ) was a Norman knight. He is famous for having been, from 1312, the lover of Margaret de Bourgogne , daughter of King Philip the Fair of France , which earned him, and his brother, who was also accused of adultery, a particularly cruel execution.

He was a Knight of the Count of Poitiers, second son of Philip the Fair . Convicted of adultery in the case of the Tour de Nesle,, he and his brother were denounced by Isabelle , Queen of England (daughter of Philip the Fair ) , who hated her sister Blanche.
