About Mathieu II, Baron de Montmorency

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_II_of_Montmorency

From Wikipedia:

Matthieu II of Montmorency had an important share in the victory of Bouvines (1214). As he captured 12 enemy flags at Bouvines, he was permitted by the king to display 12 eagles on his coat of arms. He was also made constable in 1218. During the reign of Louis VIII he distinguished himself chiefly in the south of France (Niort, La Rochelle, Bordeaux). On the accession of Louis IX, he was one of the chief supports of the queen-regent Blanche of Castile, and was successful in reducing all the vassals to obedience. He died in 1230.


From Medlands:

MATHIEU [II] "le Grand" de Montmorency, son of BOUCHARD [IV] Seigneur de Montmorency & his wife Laurette de Hainaut (-24 Nov 1230). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Matheum in curia Francie nominatissimum et comitissam Montisfortis matrem comitis Almarici" as children of "Loreta [de Haynaco] [uxor] Buchardo de Montinorencei"[660]. "Buccardus de Montemorenciaco" confirmed donations made by "Guibertus de Tauerni…" to l’abbaye du Val, with the consent of "fratres mei Theobaldus et Matheus et Herveus clericus, uxorque mea Laurentia et filius meus Matheus et filia mea Eva", by undated charter[661]. Seigneur de Montmorency, d'Ecouen, de Conflans-Sainte-Honorine et d'Attichy. "Matheus de Montemorenciaco" confirmed various donations to the abbaye du Val, made by "dominus Matheus avus meus" with the consent of "dominus Burchardus pater meus et Theobaldus et Matheus avunculi mei…Lauretæ uxoris suæ matris meæ…sororis meæ Evæ", by charter dated 1193[662]. Connétable de France 1194. "Matheus de Montemorenciaco" donated property to Saint-Martin-des-Champs on the advice of "domni Mathei avunculi mei" by charter dated 1 Jan/9 Apr 1200 or 1 Jan/25 Mar 1201, which also names "Buchardus proavus meus"[663]. "Matheus dominus Montis Moren[tiaci]" donated property "in grangia mea de Herovilla" to Val-Notre-Dame, with the consent of "Gertrudis uxoris mee et Buccardi primogeniti mei", by charter dated Sep 1222[664]. The necrology of the abbey of Notre-Dame du Val records the death "VIII Kal Dec" of "dominus Matheus de Montemorenciaco constabularius Francie"[665].

m firstly (1193, [annulled]%29 GERTRUDE de Soissons, divorced wife of JEAN de Beaumont [later Comte de Beaumont], daughter of RAOUL II Comte de Soissons (-26 Sep [1222]). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "uxorem comitis Iohannis Bellimontis…et uxorem Stephani de Sancerra" as the two daughters of "Alaydis [filia comitem de Brana Robertum domnum]" & her fourth husband, specifying that "Matheus de Montinorenci" had children by the former[666]. "Matheus dominus Montis Moren[tiaci]" donated property "in grangia mea de Herovilla" to Val-Notre-Dame, with the consent of "Gertrudis uxoris mee et Buccardi primogeniti mei", by charter dated Sep 1222[667]. This charter is presumably misdated in light of the date of the second marriage of Mathieu [II] de Montmorency. The necrology of the abbey of Notre-Dame du Val records the death "VI Kal Oct" of "Geltrudis domina de Montemorenciaco"[668].

m secondly (Jul 1218) EMMA de Laval Dame de Laval, widow of ROBERT [III] Comte d'Alençon, daughter of GUY [VI] Seigneur de Laval & his wife Avise de Craon ([1197/98]-27 Apr 1264, bur Abbaye de Clermont).

A manuscript genealogy of the Lords of Beaumont record the marriage of “Robertum comitem Alencheii” and “Emmam filiam Guidonis domini de La Val” after the death of his wife “Joanna…filia domini Josberti de Guirchia”[670]. "Robertus comes d’Alencon et dominus Lavallis et Emma uxor eius filia Guidonis de Lavalle et hæres Lavallis" exchanged property with "Yvoni Franco et dominæ Haoys uxori suæ" by charter dated Feb 1216[671]. "Matheus de Montemorenciaco, conestabularius Franciæ et Emma, eius uxor, comitissa de Alanconio et domina Lavallensis" ratified a donation by "dominus Ivo Francus et uxor eius Advisia de Lavalle" to Bellebranche, for the salvation of "domini Guydonis de Lavalle" and for "Hugonis filii sui", by charter dated 1218[672].

The necrology of Joyenval records the death “27 Apr...circa 1280“ of "dominæ Emmæ comitissæ Alençonio, dominæ de Valle Guyonis, domini Guillelmi de Bellomonte [error] uxoris” and that “domini Guidonis de Laval filii eorum primogeniti” confirmed their donations[675].

Mathieu [II] & his first wife had three children:

Mathieu [II] & his second wife had [three] children:

4. GUY [VII] de Montmorency-Laval (-[1267]). The necrology of Joyenval records the death “27 Apr...circa 1280“ of "dominæ Emmæ comitissæ Alençonio, dominæ de Valle Guyonis, domini Guillelmi de Bellomonte [error] uxoris” and that “domini Guidonis de Laval filii eorum primogeniti” confirmed their donations[681]. Seigneur de Laval.

5. AVOISE de Laval (-after 1 Jun 1270).

Letters dated Sep 1239 record donations made by "Jean seigneur de Chossiaco et de Laval", with the consent of "Emme comitisse d’Alençon et dame de Laval son espouse", to "Jacques seigneur de Chasteaugonthier" on his marriage to "Avoise fille de ladite comtesse"[683].

6. [MARSILIE de Montmorency (-1264 or after). Europäische Stammtafeln records that “Marsilie”, daughter of Mathieu [III] Seigneur de Montmorency & his wife Jeanne de Brienne, married Mathieu de Trie[685]. The primary source on which this information is based has not been identified. From a chronological point of view, this parentage is impossible. If Mathieu’s wife belonged to the Montmorency family, it is likely that she was the daughter of Mathieu [II]. m (before 1237) MATHIEU de Trie Seigneur de Trie et de Moncy, son of JEAN de Trie Châtelain de Trie & his wife Alix de Dammartin (-1272). Comte de Dammartin 1259.]
