About Gérald Flaitel

Disconnected Gerald Flaitel as father of Gérald Flaitel, II

Disconnected [Robert Fleitel] and [Havlive De Normandy] as parents of Gerard Flaitel


In his 2013 book The King's Bishops: The Politics of Patronage in England and Normandy, 1066-1216, Everett U. Crosby writes, "In a scenario now familiar in Normandy, the Bishops of Evreux from the time of the Conquest throughout the twelfth century were men drawn from the royal household or from important aristocratic families. The last i line before 1066 was William Fleitel, whose place of origin was a barony established in the Hiemois early in the 11th century. Gerard Fleitel his father, described by Orderic Vitalis as one of the greatest lords in Normandy at the time of Duke Richard, was a major donor to the Abbey of St. Wandrille, and it was there that he retired as a monk to spend the last of his days. Of particular interest for our purposes was the relationship between Gerard and Radbod, Bishop of Sees, who was also descended from aristocratic parents, that came about either because Radbod married a sister of Gerard or because the wives of Gerard and Radbod were themselves sisters. William Bona ANima, therefore, as noted earlier, the son of Radbod and archbishop of Rouen in 1079, and Gerard's son William were first cousins. If "to know a duke is to know enough," then both Williams had been well-placed for promotion to high office. Orderic lists the three bishops of the adjacent dioceses: William of Evreux,, son of Gerard Fleitel, Hugh of Lisieux, son of William Count of Eu, and Ivo of Sees, son of William of Belleme, as "men of noble families who were skilled in the law.".... (p. 223-24)

Crosby goes on to note William of Evreux's sister Basilica, brother Anscherius, a brother Robert and possibly Albert. He also notes that Bishop William Giffard was a son of William Giffard and a daughter of Gerard Fleitel,

Gerard Flaitel († c.?1047) was a Norman knight and a ' most powerful lord in Normandy at the time of the Richards' according to Orderic Vitalis.

Life

Gerard was a Norman baron with substantial estates in the Pays de Caux, the Hiemois, the Evrecin and Risle valley.[1] He was a vassal of William of Talou in Arques.[2]

In 1035, when Robert I, Duke of Normandy left on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, Gerard Flaitel was one of his companions.[3] In the spring of 1035 the group left Normandy probably taking the favored route through the Danube river basin to Constantinople.[4] Duke Robert obtained permission for he and his retinue to continue on to Muslim-controlled Jerusalem.[4] In Turkey Robert paid the required mussella (pilgrim tax).[3] They arrived in time to spend Holy Week in Jerusalem.[3] On their return through Asia Minor, Duke Robert fell ill while they were in Nicaea, and died there about 2 July. As he lay dying Gerard was asked to take possession of a Holy relic Robert acquired in Jerusalem, reputedly a finger-bone of Saint Stephen, and to make a gift of it to the abbey or monastery of his choosing.[3] Gerard returned to Normandy and became a monk at the Abbey of St. Wandrille taking the relic with him.[3] He died after 1047.[5]
