“Amaury [III]…married Agnes, the niece of Stephen de Garlande, and official of considerable standing in the household of Philip’s [I] son Louis. The rebellion that broke out in 1118–1119 centered on the dioceses of Évreux and Sées was supported by the French king, by the Angevin contingent, and by a group of feudal lords that included Hugh de Gournay, Robert de l’Aigle, Eustace of Breteuil, and Robert de Neubourg.”[Fn]

FR: “Jusqu’à [roi Jean-sans-Terre], c’était un vicomte qui gouvernait la ville, ainsi que la vicomte entire, et ce chef de l’admiistration militaire et civile, était toujours choisi parmi les grands vassaux ou les lieutenans du prince. Nous avons vu qu’à différentes époques, des guerriers célèbres, tells qu’Ogier et Onfroi-le-Danois, Roger-de-Montgommri et Robert-de-Bellême, avaient abtenu cette dignité. Après eux vinrent Robert-de-l’Aigle, Guiguenal-Gazon, et d’autres, don’t les noms ont disparu. On conçoit que ces hommes d’armes, peu familiers avec les lois et les usages civils, devaient fort mal administrer les villes en temps de paix.”
EN: “Before [king John the Landless], it was a viscount who governed the city, as well as the entire viscount, and this head of the military and civil administration was always chosen from among the great vassals or lieutenants of the prince. We have seen that at different times, famous warriors, such as Ogier and Onfroi the Dane, Roger-de-Montgomery and Robert de Bellême, had obtained this dignity. After them came Robert de l'Aigle, Guiguenal Gazon, and others, whose names have disappeared. It is conceivable that these men-at-arms, unfamiliar with the laws and civil customs, must have very badly administered the cities in time of peace.
