About Amauri III de Montfort, comte d'Evreux

Wikipédia: Il succéda à son frère Simon II. Il était également frère de Bertrade de Montfort, mariée successivement à Foulque IV le Réchin, comte d’Anjou et de Philippe Ier, roi de France.

C’est un vassal direct du roi de France, qui tient des forteresses situées à la frontière du domaine royal, mais en 1098, lors d’une campagne de Guillaume II le Roux, roi d'Angleterre et gardien de la Normandie, dans le Vexin et contre le roi de France, il n’hésite pas à lui ouvrir les portes du château de Houdan. En 1108, à la mort du roi Philippe Ier, il soutient les fils de sa sœur, la reine Bertrade, contre le nouveau roi Louis VI, leur demi-frère. Mais il se réconcilie avec le roi et réussit en 1112 à convaincre le comte d’Anjou à s’allier avec le roi de France contre Henri Beauclerc, roi d’Angleterre.

Depuis la mort de Roger de Tosny en 10952, son frère était devenu l’héritier du comté d'Évreux. Amaury hérita également de ces droits du comté et le revendiqua en 1118, à la mort de Guillaume d'Évreux.

Mais Henri Beauclerc, roi d’Angleterre et duc de Normandie, refusa de lui remettre le comté d'Évreux et le rattacha au duché. Amaury forma alors une coalition avec le roi de France, le comte d’Anjou et plusieurs barons normands3 pour obtenir son héritage par les armes. Amaury prit Évreux en octobre 1118. En 1119, Henri prit la ville et l’incendia, mais ne put se rendre maître de la citadelle, tenue par les partisans d’Amaury. En octobre 1119, le concile de Reims leur permit de conclure un accord : Amaury rendait le donjon à Henri qui lui donnait le comté.

Mais les relations entre le comte d'Évreux et le roi d’Angleterre ne restèrent pas longtemps cordiales. Les agents royaux levant trop de taxes sur les terres du comté et contraires à la coutume, Amaury persuada son neveu Foulque le jeune, comte d’Anjou, à marier sa fille avec Guillaume Cliton, fils de Robert Courteheuse et prétendant au duché de Normandie. Il s’allia également à plusieurs seigneurs normands mécontents de leur suzerains4. La révolte éclata en 1123. Le 25 mars 1124, Guillaume de Grandcourt, l'un des fils cadets du comte Henri d'Eu, le capture lors de l'embuscade de Bourgthéroulde. Finalement, ce chevalier choisit de déserter avec lui plutôt que de le remettre à Henri Ier5. Beaucoup de conjurés sont capturés ce jour-là, dont comte Galéran IV de Meulan. Amaury se réfugia en France6. Il fit peu après sa soumission et put reprendre possession de son comté d'Évreux.

Il conspira encore en 1126, en soutenant le roi Louis VI qui cherchait à aider Guillaume Cliton, mais se brouille ensuite avec le roi. Il meurt le 18 ou le 19 avril 1137.

Amauri III, 6th seigneur de Montfort, assisted King William II against his brother Simon's castles of Montfort and Epernon in 1098.

He was taken prisoner in a war against William II in 1098.

He supported the claim of William de Bréteuil's Burgundian nephew, Renaud de Grancei, to succeed to his estates against that of his Breton nephew's, William de Gael, in 1103.

Amauri married Richeude de Hainaut, daughter of Baudouin II "de Jerusalem", comte de Hainaut and Gräfin von Hennegau Ida von Löwen, in 1110. They were later divorced (separated for possible consanquinity?). He next married our ancestor Agnes de Garlande, daughter of Anseau de Garlande, senechal de France and Agnès de Rochefort Montlhéry, before 1120.

Amauri died 18 or 19 April at year unknown.

From Medlands:

AMAURY de Montfort, son of SIMON Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury & his third wife Agnès d'Evreux (-[18/19] Apr [1137/38], bur Abbaye de Haute-Bruyère). His parentage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis[2616]. He succeeded his brother after [1104] as Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury. Orderic Vitalis records that, after the death of his maternal uncle Guillaume "Crespin" Comte d'Evreux, Amaury claimed the succession but Henry I King of England "took the county of Evreux into his own hands" because he "had forfeited the king's favour by his effrontery"[2617]. He led a major rebellion and captured the town of Evreux[2618]. King Henry besieged the castle but the two parties were reconciled by King Henry's nephew Thibaut Comte de Blois[2619], when Amaury succeeded as Comte d'Evreux. The necrology of Saint-Père-en-Vallée records the death "19 Apr" of "Amauricus princeps de Monteforti"[2620]. 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"[2621].

Betrothed (1103) to --- de Meulan, daughter of ROBERT de Beaumont-le-Roger Comte de Meulan, Earl of Leicester & his wife Elisabeth de Vermandois [Capet]. Daughter of Robert, she was betrothed by her father to Amaury nephew of Guillaume Comte d'Evreux when only one year old but "various circumstances arose which prevented the marriage" according to Orderic Vitalis[2622]. The identity of the daughter is unknown, but she may have been Isabelle (see below). She is named "Aline" in Europäische Stammtafeln[2623], but the source for this is not known. If this is correct, she was probably the same person as Robert's daughter Adeline (see below).

m firstly ([1115], divorced 1118) RICHILDIS de Hainaut, daughter of BAUDOUIN II Comte de Hainaut & his wife Ida de Louvain ([1095]-after 1118). Orderic Vitalis names "Richenda" as wife of Amaury de Montfort, but does not give her origin[2624]. The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Richeldis" as daughter of "Balduino comitis Hanoniensis" and wife of "comiti Montisforti"[2625].

m secondly (before 1127) AGNES de Garlande, daughter of ANSEAU de Garlande Comte de Rochefort & his wife --- de Rochefort-en-Yvelines (-after 1136). The Chronicon Mauriniacensi records that "Stephanus Cancellarius" arranged the marriage of "nepti sua" and "Amalrico de Monteforti", adding that he dowry was "honore de Rupe-forti" [Rochefort][2626]. The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified. Du Chesne suggests that the widow of Amaury [III] de Montfort Comte d’Evreux married, as her second husband and his first wife, Robert de France Seigneur de Dreux[2627]. He bases this on a charter dated to [1 Nov 1183/31 Mar 1184] in which Philippe II King of France confirmed the property of Notre-Dame de Colombs, including property "in loco Campus à la Drouë" donated by "Robertus comes de Drocis et de Montfort" and "domum de là Nouë" donated by "Simon de Drocis in sua ultima voluntate"[2628]. Du Chesne’s argument is that Robert Comte de Dreux could only have been entitled to "le titre de comte de Montfort, don’t le roy le rehausse" from "un mariage fait avec la douairiere de la mesme comté". He also suggests that "Simon de Drocis", also named in the same charter, was the son of this marriage. There are three difficulties with Du Chesne’s argument. Firstly, Amaury [III] de Montfort was comte d’Evreux not "comte de Montfort", a title which does not appear ever to have been borne by members of his family. Secondly, the chronology is unfavourable for the widow of Amaury [III], who was probably born in [1110/15] at the latest, to have married Robert de Dreux whose birth is estimated to [1124/26]. Thirdly, it is unlikely that Agnes would have given the name Simon to a son born from this supposed second marriage, given that she already had a son of that name by her marriage to Amaury. In conclusion, the evidence of the [1183/84] charter alone is insufficient to corroborate this marriage. Comte Amaury & his first wife had one child:

1. daughter . The Chronique de Morigny records that "Hugo de Creciaco" killed "Milonem de Monteleherico…dominum suum cognatum suum", after which he was besieged in "castrum Gumet" {Gometz}, fled "in curia Amaurici de Monte-forti…cujus et ipse Hugo filiam parvulam desponsaverat", and then became a monk, in a passage dealing with events in 1118[2629]. Betrothed ([1118]) to HUGUES de Crécy, son of GUY [II] "le Rouge" de Rochefort Seigneur de Rochefort-en-Yvelines & [his second wife Adelais de Crécy dame de Gournay-sur-Marne] (-31 Jul 1147). Comte Amaury & his second wife had three children:

2. AMAURY de Montfort (-[1140]). His parentage is confirmed by a charter dated Feb 1199 which 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"[2630]. As this document names the guardian of Amaury, he must have been under-age at his father’s death and therefore born from his father’s second marriage. He succeeded his father as Comte d'Evreux, Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury. The abbot of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and “Stephani de Garlanda”, who held “castrum Gurnaicum...in advocatione pro Amalrico Ebrocensi comite neptis sue filio”, agreed terms for renouncing certain revenues by charter dated 1138[2631]. Robert of Torigny records the death in 1140 of "comes Ebroicensis Amalricus" and the succession of "frater eius Symon"[2632].

3. 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"[2633]. 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[2634]. 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"[2635]. 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"[2636]. The necrology of the church of Evreux records the death "13 Mar" of "Symon comes Ebroicensis qui dedit c solidos" and the donation of "xl solidos" by "Amaricus filius eiusdem comitis"[2637]. m MATHILDE, daughter of --- (-before [31 Mar/23 Oct] 1168). Her marriage is confirmed by a charter dated Feb 1199 which 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 uxor eius"[2638]. She was related to Henri I Comte de Champagne: “Henricus Trecensium comes palatinus” donated revenue from the fair at Provins to Haute-Bruyère, for the soul of “Matillis Ebroicensis comitisse consanguinee mee”, by charter dated to [31 Mar/23 Oct] 1168[2639]. Simon & his wife had three children:

a) AMAURY de Montfort (-13 Mar 1182). 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"[2640]. He succeeded his father in 1181 as Comte d'Evreux. The Annales Cestrienses record the death in 1181 of “Simon comes Ebroensis socer Hugonis comitis Cestrie”[2641]. The necrology of the church of Evreux records the death "13 Mar" of "Symon comes Ebroicensis qui dedit c solidos" and the donation of "xl solidos" by "Amaricus filius eiusdem comitis"[2642]. From the day of his death recorded in this source, it is assumed that the year as reported in the Annales Cestrienses was O.S. 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", a later donation by "Simon iste comes Ebroicensis et Mahaudis uxor eius", and the present confirmation by "Simon de Monteforti, predictorum successor virorum et heres" with the consent of "uxore mea Eva et filiis meis Amaurico et Guidone et fratre meo Guidone"[2643]. m ([1170]) MABEL of Gloucester, daughter of WILLIAM FitzRobert Earl of Gloucester & his wife Avise de Beaumont (-1198). An anonymous continuation of the Chronicle of Robert of Mont-Saint-Michel records (in order) "Comitissa Ebroicensis…uxor Guillelmi Comitis de Clara, tertia…in manu Dei et domini Regis" as the three daughters left by "Guillelmus Comes Glocestriæ" when he died[2644]. The Chronica de Fundatoribus et Fundatione of Tewkesbury Abbey names “Mabiliam comiti de Evereis in Normannia nuptam…Amiciam…Isabellam” as the three daughters of “comes Willielmus” and his wife[2645]. Benedict of Peterborough records "uxori Amauri comitis Ebroicanum" as "Willelmus filius Roberti filii regis Henrici primi comes Gloucestriæ…filiam ipsius comitis"[2646]. Robert of Torigny records the marriage in 1170 of "primogenitam filiam Roberti comitis Gloecestriæ" and "Amauricus primogenitus filius Symonis comitis Ebroicensis"[2647]. In another passage, Robert of Torigny records the death in 1183 of "Guillermus comes Gloecestriæ" leaving three daughters as his heirs, of whom one (mentioned first) was "comitissa Ebroicensis"[2648]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the death in 1198 of “Mabilia comitissa Ebroici”[2649]. Comte Amaury V & his wife had one child:

i) AMAURY de Montfort (-[1213]). 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"[2650]. He succeeded his father in 1182 as Comte d'Evreux. Earl of Gloucester. m firstly (before [1194/96]) AGNES d'Amboise, daughter of HUGUES [II] Seigneur d'Amboise & his wife Mathilde de Vendôme (-after 20 Mar [1202/03]). "Sulpicius dominus Ambaziæ et Matildis mater mea et omnes fratres et sorores Hugo…et Johannes, Helisabeth et Agnes atque Dionisia" donated property to the abbey of Fontaines-les-Blanches by charter dated 1194[2651]. “Sulpice seigneur d’Amboise” confirmed that “Hugues d’Azay” had granted “la dîme de Carbonel” to “Mathilde mère de Sulpice” who had donated it to the monks of Pont-Levoy, for the soul of “son père Hugues”, confirmed by “Sulpice...Hugues, Jehan et Guillaume ses frères, par Elisabeth comtesse d’Angoulême, Agnès comtesse d’Evreux, Denise et Mathilde ses sœurs”, by charter dated 1196[2652]. “Mathilde dame d’Amboise” donated property to Liget abbey, for the soul of “Hugues d’Amboise son mari”, with the consent of “Sulpice, de Hugues, Jean et Guillaume ses fils, d’Isabelle comtesse d’Angoulême, d’Agnès comtesse d’Evreux, et de Denise, ses filles”, by charter dated 1198[2653]. “Sulpice seigneur d’Amboise” donated harvest to Fontaines abbey, for the soul of “Mathilde sa mère”, with the consent of “Isabelle sa femme, de Jean son fils, de Hugues, Jean et Guillaume ses frères, d’Isabelle comtesse d’Angoulême, d’Agnès comtesse d’Evreux et de Denise, ses sœurs”, by charter dated 1201[2654]. “Sulpice seigneur d’Amboise” donated property to Fontaines abbey, in acknowledgement of “sa mère Mathilde” being buried there, with the consent of “Hugues, Jean et Guillaume ses frères, d’Elisabeth comtesse d’Angoulême, d’Agnès comtesse d’Evreux et de Denise, ses sœurs”, by charter dated 20 Mar 1202 (O.S.?)[2655]. m secondly (before 1203) as her first husband, MELISENDE de Gournay, daughter of HUGUES [V] Seigneur de Gournay & his wife Julia --- (-after 14 Mar 1217). Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a letter which purports to be from her daughter "Dame Julian Tresgoze…espouse…a Sr Robert Tresgoos le Second" to "son frère St Thomas de Cantlow, Euesque…de Hereford" which gives a confused version of the family’s lineage: "Sr Hugh de Gornaye" married "la reyne Blanch" [widow of Louis VIII King of France, such a second marriage being impossible chronologically] and had "un fils…Hugh…nostre ayle", who married "la soer le count Renaud de Boloyng", whose daughter "Milsent nostre mere" married "a Count de Euoyse en Normandy" by whom she had one son and one daughter, before marrying "Will de Cantelow nostre pere"[2656]. Henry III King of England granted "maneriis de Mapeldureham et Petrefeld" to "Rogero la Szuche", as granted by King John except for the dower of "Milesentie que fuit uxor comitis Ebroici", dated 14 Mar 1217[2657]. She married secondly (1219) [as his first wife,] William [III] de Cauntelo.

b) SIMON [IV] de Montfort (-1187 or before, bur Abbaye de Haute-Bruyère).

He succeeded his father in 1181 as Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury. - see below.

c) BERTRADE de Montfort ([1155]-1227). The Annales Cestrienses record in 1169 that “Hugo comes Cestrie” married “filiam Simonis comitis Ebroensis...Bertrad” arranged by King Henry II and that she was “ipsius cognata”[2659]. Robert of Torigny records the marriage arranged by Henry II King of England in 1170 of "Hugoni comiti Cestriæ cognate suo" and "filiam comitis Ebroicensis cognatam suam ex parte patris sui"[2660]. “Bertreia comitissa Cestrie...” witnessed the charter dated to [1169/73] under which Hugh Earl of Chester granted land at Coventry to Godfrey his homager[2661]. The Rotuli de Dominabus of 1185 records property “Beltesford et Hemmingebi et Dunintone” held by “Bertia comitissa, filia comitis de Evereros, uxor Hugonis comitis Cestrie”[2662]. “Bertrada comitissa Cestrie...” witnessed the charter dated [3 Feb 1188/15 Nov 1189] under which “Ranulfus dux Britannie comes Cestrie et Richmondie” confirmed a donation to Bordesley abbey[2663]. The Annals of Burton record the death in 1227 of “Bertrudis comitissa Cestriæ”[2664]. The Annales Cestrienses record the death in 1227 of “Bertrudis comitissa Cestrie”[2665]. m ([1169/70]) HUGH Earl of Chester, son of RANULF de Gernon Earl of Chester & his wife Matilda of Gloucester (Kevelioc, co. Monmouth 1147-Leek, Staffordshire 30 Jun 1181, bur Chester, Abbey of St Werburgh).

4. AGNES de Montfort (-15 Dec 1181). Robert of Torigny refers to the wife of "Gualerannus comes Mellenti" as "sorore Simonis comitis Ebroicensis" but does not name her[2666]. "Agnes comitissa Mell." donated property "haia de Lintot" to the monastery of Montvilliers for the soul of "Almarici comitis ebroicensis patris mei…[et]…comitis Mell. Gual. domini mei…et Roberti filii mei" by undated charter[2667].

The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.

In other passages he names her and specifies that she was the daughter of Richard and sister of Guillaume[471]. The date of her marriage is estimated from the marriage of her daughter which is dated to 1089.

Simon & his first wife had three children:

1. AMAURY de Montfort (1056-killed in battle [1089]). "Mainerium, fratrem Symonis de Monte Forti" donated property, with the consent of "Simone fratre eius comiteque Belli Montis Ivonis", by charter dated to before 1091, which also names "domnus Simon, filio suo Amalrico"[472]. He succeeded his father in [1087] as Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury. Orderic Vitalis records that, two years after the death of King William I [1089], “Ascelinus cognomento Goellus” captured “arcem Ibreii” from “Guillelmo Bretoliensi domino suo” and surrendered it to Duke Robert who resold it to Guillaume de Breteuil for “MD libras”, triggering a lengthy war, during which “Almaricus de Monteforti qui Fortis” attacked the lands of Guillaume but was killed[473].

Her parentage is suggested by a charter dated 1160 under which Louis VII King of France confirmed donations to the abbey of Colombs near Nogent, including donations made by "Hugo Bardulfus castri Nouigenti…aliique eorum successores…Simon de Montisforti, et Radulfus iunior de Toneio et Rogerius filius eius…et Simon de Monteforti gener eius et successor"[475]. Orderic Vitalis records that “Elizabeth...uxor et Rogerius atque Radulfus filii eius” consented to the donations to Ouche made by “Radulfus...de Conchis filius Rogerii de Toenia...Normannorum...signifer”[476]. Dame de Nogent-le-Roi. Orderic Vitalis calls her "Isabel de Conches", says she was "generous, daring and gay" but "in war she rode armed as a knight among the knights", and recounts that Helvise Ctss d'Evreux was offended by her "slighting remarks" which led to a bitter war between their husbands[477]. After her husband died, she repented "the mortal sin of luxury in which she had indulged in her youth" and became a nun at Haute-Bruyère[478]. m RAOUL [III] de Tosny Seigneur de Conches, son of ROGER [II] de Tosny & his wife Godechildis --- (-24 Mar [1102], bur Conches Saint-Pierre).

3. GUILLAUME de Montfort (-27 Aug 1101). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified. He was elected Bishop of Paris in 1095, consecrated in 1096[479].

He succeeded his brother as Seigneur de Montfort-l’Amaury. Orderic Vitalis records the bitter dispute between “Helvisa...comitissa” [wife of Guillaume Comte d’Evreux] and “Isabelem de Conchis” [wife of Raoul [III] de Tosny] and the war between their husbands which followed, during the course of which “nepotes eius...Guillelmus de Bretolio et Ricardus de Monteforti” supported “Guillelmus comes” and Richard was killed, being buried “Asparlone in cimiterio sancti Thomæ apostoli”, dated to [1090][481].

5. SIMON [II] de Montfort (-24 or 25 Sep after 1104). The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified. He succeeded his brother in [1092] as Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury.
