About Sibylle of Sicily


Count Roger & his second wife had nine children:

13. [SIBYLLE] of Sicily. Orderic Vitalis records that Adelaida, widow of Roger I Count of Sicily, arranged the marriage of "her daughter" (unnamed) to Robert de Bourgogne whom she appointed co-regent for her son[449]. Kerrebrouck says that Sibylle was the possible name of this daughter and that she was born from his third marriage[450], presumably reading the passage in Orderic Vitalis literally. It seems more likely chronologically that she was the daughter of Count Roger's second marriage. m (1102 or 1103) ROBERT de Bourgogne, son of ROBERT I "le Vieux" Duke of Burgundy & his [first/second wife] [H%C3%A9lie de Semur/Ermengarde [Blanche] d'Anjou] (-poisoned [1113]). He is named as son of Duke Robert by Orderic Vitalis[451]. Jean Richard suggests that Robert was the son of Duke Robert by his second marriage[452]. Given his active career in the early 12th century, a birth date in the 1050s is more likely than in the late 1030s/early 1040s, but there appear to be no surviving primary source which point either way. Orderic Vitalis records that he was declared heir to the duchy of Burgundy by his father, after the death of his older [half-]brother, but was dispossessed by his nephew Duke Hugues I[453]. He left Burgundy to take part in the expedition against the Moors in León with his nephew Duke Eudes 5 Aug 1087[454]. Orderic Vitalis records that he "made a friendly alliance" with Adelaida, widow of Roger I Count of Sicily, who arranged his marriage and appointed him co-regent for her son[455]. He was murdered by his mother-in-law with a poisoned draught after Count Roger II came of age[456]. His death date is estimated from Orderic Vitalis recording that "for ten years he defended the principality [Sicily] vigourously against all attacks"[457].
