About Sybilla of Conversano, Duchess Consort of Normandy

viii) SIBYLLE (-Rouen [Feb/Mar] or [21 Mar] 1103, bur Caen or Rouen Cathedral). She is named by Orderic Vitalis, who also names her father and repeats that he was the nephew of Robert "Guiscard"[1054]. Guillaume of Jumièges records that ”Robertus” married “Sibyllam...sororem Willelmi comitis Conversanæ”, by whom he had “unum filium...Willelmum”[1055]. Her husband married her on his return from Palestine, receiving an "immense sum" by way of dowry which he "lavished so profusely that in a few days he was penniless"[1056]. She was poisoned and died "in Lent"[1057]. The necrology of Saint-Nicaise de Meulan records the death "XII Kal Apr" of "Sibilla comitissa Normannie"[1058], although if this refers to Sibylle de Conversano it is not clear why she was not called "ducissa". It is unlikely to refer to her daughter-in-law Sibylle d'Anjou as she was Ctss of Flanders when she died.
