About Hugh II de Ponthieu, Count of Ponthieu

Hugues II, Comte de de Ponthieu (de Montreuil)



Hugh II of Ponthieu was count of Ponthieu and lord of Abbeville, the son of Enguerrand I of Ponthieu. Evidently Hugh II was the half brother of Guy, who became the bishop of Amiens; Fulk, who became the abbot of Forest l'Abbaye; and Robert. However, it is possible that both Robert and Hugh II were the sons of Enguerrand's first wife, and Guy and Fulk the sons of a later wife that Enguerrand I married when he was in his forties.

Hugh II was married to Bertha of Aumale, Countess of Aumale.

They had at least five children:

  1. Enguerrand II who succeeded Hugh II as Count of Ponthieu;
  2. Robert;
  3. Hugh (whose name is inferred by evidence contained within The Carmen de Hastingae Proelio);
  4. Waleran,
  5. and a daughter who was married to William of Talou, the count of Arques, and uncle to duke William of Normandy (the Conqueror).
