Disputed husband and child

Although some online genealogies give Ermengarde a second husband Walter de Cantilupe and a son with the same name, this isn't corroborated by any reliable secondary source nor any source from that time period and must be considered entirely fanciful.

Wikipedia:Ermengarde, Countess of Maine says: Ermengarde or Erembourg of Maine, also known as Erembourg de la Flèche (died 1126), was Countess of Maine and the Lady of Château-du-Loir from 1110 to 1126. She was the daughter of Elias I, Count of Maine, and Mathilda of Château-du-Loire.

In 1109 she married the Angevin heir, Fulk V, called "Fulk the Younger", thereby finally bringing Maine under Angevin control. She gave birth to:

  • Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (d. 1151)
  • Elias II, Count of Maine (d. 1151)
  • Matilda of Anjou (d. 1154), who married William Adelin, the son and heir to Henry I of England
  • Sibylla of Anjou (d. 1165), married in 1121 to William Clito, and then (after an annulment in 1124) to Thierry, Count of Flanders
