(in Foundation for Medieval Genealogy)

   JUDITH d'Evreux (-1076). Orderic Vitalis names her, gives her parentage and records her marriage[1872]. In another passage, the same source specifies that her mother had only one daughter by her second marriage[1873]. Her half-brother Robert de Grandmesnil, Abbé de Saint-Evroul-sur-Ouche, was her guardian. After quarrelling with Guillaume II Duke of Normandy, he fled Normandy with Judith, her brother and sister, first to Rome where he tried to seek redress from the Pope, and then to Robert Guiscard in Apulia who had founded the abbey of Santa Eufemia in Calabria for him[1874]. Malaterra records the marriage "apud Sanctum Martinum" of "abbatum Sanctæ Euphemiæ Robertum…Judicta sorore sua" and Count Roger[1875]. m (San Martino d'Agri Nov 1061) as his first wife, ROGER de Hauteville, son of TANCRED de Hauteville & his [second wife] [Fressenda] ([1031]-Mileto 22 Jun 1101, bur Mileto, Abbey of the Holy Trinity). His brother installed him as ROGER I Count of Sicily in 1072.
