Richard I of Normandy His first marriage in 960 was to Emma, daughter of Hugh "The Great" of France,[1][21] and Hedwig von Sachsen.[21] They were betrothed when both were very young. She died after 19 March 968, with no issue.[1]

According to Robert of Torigni, not long after Emma's death, Duke Richard went out hunting and stopped at the house of a local forester. He became enamored with the forester's wife, Seinfreda, but she was a virtuous woman and suggested he court her unmarried sister, Gunnor, instead. Gunnor became his mistress and her family rose to prominence. Her brother, Herefast de Crepon, may have been involved in a controversial heresy trial. Gunnor was, like Richard, of Viking descent, being a Dane by blood. Richard finally married her to legitimize their children:[b] Richard II "the Good", Duke of Normandy[1] Robert, Archbishop of Rouen, Count of Evreux[1] Mauger, Count of Corbeil[1] Emma of Normandy, wife of two kings of England[1] Maud of Normandy, wife of Odo II of Blois, Count of Blois, Champagne and Chartres[1] Hawise of Normandy m.
