About Alphonse de Hauteville, prince of Capua



3. ALPHONSE of Sicily ([1120/21]-10 Oct 1144). The Annals of Romoald name (in order) "Rogerium…Tancredum… Anfusium…Guillelmus, Heinricum, filiam unam" as the children of "rex Rogerius" & his first wife, specifying that Alphonse was Prince of Capua[523]. Houben speculates that Alphonse must have been about 14 or 15 years old when invested with the principality of Capua, as he was not then old enough to have been knighted with his two older brothers[524]. "Anfusum eius filium [=Rogerium regem Siciliæ" was installed by his father as Prince of Capua in 1136[525]. He was invested as Prince of Capua in Aug 1135, confirmed by Pope Innocent II 25 Jul 1139. Duke of Naples 1139. Together with his brother Roger, he captured Abruzzo in spring 1140. The Annales Casinenses record the death in 1144 of "Alfusus princeps"[526]. The Chronicle of Romualdo Guarna records the deaths of "Albyria…regina…et filia eius…Tarentinus princeps et Anfusus Capuanorum princeps et Henricus", recorded in a section dealing with 1145 although the text appears to be recapitalitive of earlier events[527].
