SIMON de Montfort (-12/13 Mar 1181, bur Evreux Cathedral). Robert of Torigny records that "frater eius Symon" succeeded in 1140 on the death of "comes Ebroicensis Amalricus"[1743]. He succeeded his brother as Comte d'Evreux, Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury. During the 1159 war between Henry II King of England and Louis VII King of France, Simon handed his castles of Rochefort, Montfort and Epernon to King Henry, which forced King Louis to make a truce as his communications between Paris, Orléans and Etampes were thereby cut[1744]. Robert of Torigny records the death in 1182 of "Simon comes Ebroicensis" and the succession "in comitatu Ebroicensis in Normannia" of "Amalricus filius eius" and "in comitatu de Rocha et in terra Francie" of "Simon alter filius eius"[1745]. The necrology of Haute-Bruyère lists members of the Montfort family who are buried in the abbey, starting with "conte Amaury…qui premier fonda l'eglise, dou fil le conte Simon le Chauf qui gist a Evreux"[1746].

THE ANCESTORS OF SIMON DE MONTFORT EARL OF LEICESTER (VIII)

Simon de Monfort, Count of Evreux and Seigneur of Montfort, brother and heir [of Amauri] (a). Being a vassal both of the King of France and of the King of England (as Duke of Normandy), his postion was embarrassing when his two suzerains were at war in 1159. He adhered to England and handed over his castles at Rochefort, Montfort, and Epernon to Henry II, which forced Louis to make a truce by cutting his communications between Paris, Orleans, and Etampes. In 1173 Simon joined the revolt of the "young King", but was captured when the Count of Flanders took the castle of Aumale. In 1177 he attested the treaty of Ivry, and was with Henry II at Verneuil. He m. Maud, whose parentage is unknown. He d. 12 or 13 Mar 1180/1, and was buried in Evreux Cathedral. He left two sons, Amauri, who succeeded him as Count of Evreux in Normandy (b), and Simon, who succeeded him in the lordships of Montfort and Rochefort, also a daughter Bertrade (d).

(a) He must have been a son of the second marriage of his father if his brother was. Moreover, Simon had Rochefort, which came through the second wife, and it was apparently from him that his sister Agnes received as dowry her mother's other lordship of Gournay-sur-Marne.

(b) He m. Mabel, elder daughter and coheir of William, 2nd Earl of Gloucester. His son Amauri exchanged the Comte of Evreux for the Earldom of Gloucester, and dsp.

(d) She m. Hugh, Earl of Chester.

-------------------- Son mariage avec Amicie de Beaumont apportera le comté de Leiceister dans la famille, manquant de reproduire le problème de double suzeraineté. Robert of Torigny records the death in 1182 of "Simon comes Ebroicensis" and the succession "in comitatu Ebroicensis in Normannia" of "Amalricus filius eius" and "in comitatu de Rocha et in terra Francie" of "Simon alter filius eius"[1769]. He succeeded his father in 1181 as Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury.

A charter dated Feb 1199 recalls a donation to the leprosery of Grand-Beaulieu near Chartres by "Amauricus de Monteforti", with the consent of "Amauricus parvus filius eiusdem Amaurici, qui erat sub custodia Amaurici de Mestenon", confirmed after his death by "Simon frater eius et successor", and a later donation by "Simon iste comes Ebroicensis et Mahaudis [presumably an error for Amicia] uxor eius"[1770]. The necrology of Haute-Bruyère lists members of the Montfort family who are buried in the abbey, including "…comte Simon…et de sa femme la contesse Amicie…"[1771].
