About Geoffrey II Hauteville, count of Ragusa



18. GEOFFROY (-after 1120). illegitimate son of ROGER I Count of Sicily & his mistress --- (-after 16 Dec 1120).

It is not possible that this Geoffroy was the same person as Comte Roger´s son, Geoffroy/Godefroi, who is recorded as having been a leper. It is also chronologically impossible that he was the son of Roger II Count of Sicily, given the latter´s birth in 1095. It is assumed therefore that this second son named Geoffroy was an illegitimate son of Count Roger I. His father granted him Ragusa[473]. "Tancredus de Siracusa et Goffredus de Ragusia et Robert Avenelles et Radulfus de Belvaco" are named as present in a charter dated [Mar 25/31 Aug] 1107 under which "Adalasia comitissa Siciliæ et Calabriæ et…comes Rogerius filius eius" donated property to the bishopric of Squillace on the advice of "ipsorum baronum…Roberti Borelli et Gosberti de Licia et Willelmi de Altavilla"[474]. "Geoffroi de Raguse, fils du comte Roger" is named with his three sons in a charter dated 1120[475].

m ROGALIA, daughter of --- (-[after Sep 1141]). “Gaufridus de Ragusia filius Rogerii comitis cum uxore sua Rogalia et filiis Bartholomeo, Silvestro et Gothofredo” donated property to Catania by charter dated 16 Dec 1120[34]. She was presumably alive in Sep 1141, the date of the charter, subscribed by "…Rogerii filii domne Raguse…", under which "Gaimarus filius Alfani…et uxor mea Beatrix" restored property to the bishop of Cefalù[35].

 Godefroi & his wife had four children:
