About Adelaide de Guines

ADELAIDE de Guines

From Medlands:

The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names (in order) "Robertus…dictus est Manasses…Fulconem… Guidonem…Hugonem…Adelidem quoque Samurensem et Ghislam Gandavensem" as children of "Balduinus [comes Ghisnensi]" & his wife, specifying that her marriage with "Samurensi domino Galfrido" was arranged by "Parisiensis episcopi Guiffredi, Boloniensis comitis Eustacii fratris" to whom she was "cognata et consanguinea"[629]. This text cannot be taken as completely conclusive about Adelaide's marriage as a 12th century genealogy of the Semur family names "comte Renaud" (without giving any territorial epithet) as father of Adelaide, wife of Geoffrey de Semur[630]. Nevertheless, the precision of the text of the Historia relating to Adelaide's marriage does suggest some reliability, despite the many inaccuracies in other parts of the narrative concerning the earlier generations of the family of the Comtes de Guines. The reference to Geoffroy de Boulogne (appointed Bishop of Paris in 1061, died 1095) provides a good chronological link to Seigneur Geoffroy [IV], assuming the marriage was arranged towards the end of the bishop's life. m (before 1095) GEOFFROY [IV] Seigneur de Semur, son of GEOFFROY [III] Seigneur de Semur & his wife Ermengard de Semur (-[1070/80], bur Marcigny).
