ARMAND de Mortain, son of ROBERT Comte d'Eu & his first wife Beatrix --- . The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.

m as her first husband, BEATRIX de Hauteville, daughter of TANCRED de Hauteville & his [first wife Moriella ---] ([1005/10]-1101). The Annals of Romoald state that Tancred had three daughters without naming them or stating by which marriage they were born[1172]. Her marriage is suggested by the Gesta Roberti Wiscardi which names "Robertus de Scabioso Monte comes…Gosfredi frater, et ambo orti germana fuerant ducis"[1173]. The chronology of her descendants strongly suggests that Beatrix must have been born in [1005/10] and therefore was one of her parents' older children. The primary source which confirms her name and second marriage has not been identified. Beatrix is shown as the daughter of Tancred by his first wife in Europäische Stammtafeln[1174]. The basis for this is not known. However, it appears more likely that she was the daughter of his second marriage if her estimated birth date range is correct, especially in light of the approximate date of birth of her brother Robert "Guiscard" in [1020]. The Gesta Roberti Wiscardi names "Robertus de Scabioso Monte comes…Gosfredi frater, et ambo orti germana fuerant ducis"[1175]. Guerrieri highlights that "Gosfredi" in this passage has been identified as Godefroi Conte di Conversano but that it is not possible to confirm whether this is correct[1176]. If the speculation is right, Beatrix was the same person as the daughter of Tancred who is shown in the document SICILY COUNTS & KINGS as married to "--- [di Conversano]". She married secondly Roger ---.

Armand & his wife had two children:
