Biography

Adelaide was a daughter of Robert the MagnificentDuke of Normandy, born c.1030[1] Elisabeth Van Houts, in her article Les femmes dans l’histoire du duché de Normandie (or Women in the history of ducal Normandy) mentions Countess Adelaide as one of those notable Norman women who were known to have exerted a strong influence on their children, especially with regard to passing on their own family history.[2][3]

Marriages

Adelais (or Adelaide) married three times:[4]

m firstly ENGUERRAND [II] Comte de Montreuil (died 1053)[5] by whom she had issue:

  • Adelaide II, Countess of Aumale, m. William de Bréteuil, Lord of Bréteuil, son of William FitzOsbern, 1st Earl of Hereford.[6][7]

m secondly ([1053/54]) LAMBERT de Boulogne Comte de Lens Count of Lens (died 1054),[8] they had a daughter:

  • Judith of Lens', m. Waltheof, Earl of Huntingdon and Northumbria.[9]

m thirdly ([1060]) EUDES III Comte de Troyes et d'Aumâle Odo, Count of Champagne (d. aft. 1096),[10] by whom she had a son:

  • Stephen, Count of Aumale.[11]'


Adelaide's first marriage to Enguerrand II, Count of Ponthieu potentially gave then Duke William a powerful ally in upper Normandy.[12] But at the Council of Reims in 1049, when the marriage of Duke William with Matilda of Flanders was prohibited based on consanguinity, so were those of Eustace II, Count of Boulogne and Enguerrand of Ponthieu, who was already married to Adelaide.[13]  Adelaide's marriage was apparently annulled in c.1049/50, and another marriage was arranged for her, this time to Lambert II, Count of Lens, younger son of Eustace I, Count of Boulogne forming a new marital alliance between Normandy and Boulogne.[14] Lambert was killed in 1054 at Lille, aiding Baldwin V, Count of Flanders against Emperor Henry III.[15] Now widowed, Adelaide resided at Aumale, part of her dower from her first husband, Enguerrand, or part of a settlement after the capture of Guy of Ponthieu, her brother-in-law.[16] As a dowager, Adelaide began a semi-religious retirement and became involved with the church at Auchy presenting them with a number of gifts.[17] In 1060 she was called upon again to form another marital alliance, this time to a younger man Odo, Count of Champagne.[18] Odo must have been a disappointment, as he appears in only one of the Conqueror's charters, receiving no land in England.[19]
In 1082 King William and Queen Matilda gave to the Abbey of the Holy Trinity in Caen, the town of Le Homme in the Cotentin with a provision to the Countess of Albamarla (Aumale), his sister, for a life tenancy.[20] In 1086, as Comitissa de Albatnarla' ,[21], as she was listed in the Domesday Book, was shown as having numerous holdings in both Suffolk and Essex,[22] one of the very few Norman noblewomen to have held lands in England at Domesday as a tenant-in-chief.[23] She was also given the ' Lordship of Holderness  which was held after her death by her 3rd husband, Odo, by then disinherited Count of Champagne. The Lordship then passed on to their son, Stephen.[24]

Lambert II, Count of Lens

Lambert II, Count of Lens was a French nobleman, the son of Eustace I, Count of Bologne and of Maud de Leuven (daughter of Lambert I of Leuven).[25] c. 1053. He married  Adelaide of NormandyCountess of Aumale, daughter of Robert I, Duke of Normandy and sister of William the Conqueror.[26] Adelaide was the widow of Enguerrand II, Count of Ponthieu who died in 1053.[27] c. 1054 Lambert and Adelaide had a daughter, Judith of Lens, although Lambert would scarcely have seen her, as he was killed at the Battle of Lille in 1054.[28] Lambert was supporting Baldwin V, Count of Flanders against Henry III, Holy Roman Emperor when he was killed in battle.[29] His widow, Adelaide, married thirdly, Odo, Count of Champagne.[30]


Death

Adelaide died before 1090.[31]

MEDIEVAL LANDS

ADELAIS (-[1081/84]). Robert de Torigny names "Aeliz" as the daughter of Duke Robert II "de alia concubina" from Herleve[202]. She retained the title Comtesse d'Aumâle after her first marriage. The foundation charter of Saint-Martin d´Auchy names “Engueranni consulis qui filius fuit Berte supradicti Guerinfridi filie et Adelidis comitisse uxoris sue sororis…Willelmi Regis Anglorum”[203]. Her second marriage is deduced from the same charter of Saint-Martin d´Auchy which also names “Judita comitissa domine supradicte filia”[204]. Orderic Vitalis calls her "the king's sister" when referring to her marriage to Eudes Comte de Troyes[205].

m firstly ENGUERRAND [II] Comte de Montreuil, son of HUGUES de Ponthieu Comte de Montreuil & his wife Berthe d'Aumâle (-killed in battle Château d'Arques 25 Oct 1053).

Comte Enguerrand & his wife had three children:

a) GUY [I] de Montreuil (-13 Nov [1100], bur Abbéville, Saint-Pierre). A charter dated 1100 included in the cartulary of Saint-Josse records a grant of fishing rights by "Guido comes Monsteroli et Pontivensium" which names "Hugo noster avus" and "patre meo Ingerrano"[816]. This is inconsistent with the Chronique de Saint Riquier which records that "comte Gui fils du comte Hugues" succeeded after "Angelran son frère" was killed by the Normans and possessed the county of Ponthieu and the avouerie of Saint-Riquier[817]. It is assumed that the charter provides the more reliable record of Guy's parentage. Comte de Montreuil. Comte de Ponthieu.

- COMTES de PONTHIEU.

b) ADELAIDE de Montreuil . The foundation charter of Saint-Martin d´Auchy narrates the church´s foundation by “Guerinfrido qui condidit castellum…Albamarla” and names “Engueranni consulis qui filius fuit Berte supradicti Guerinfridi filie et Adelidis comitisse uxoris sue sororis…Willelmi Regis Anglorum” and “Addelidis comitissa supradicti Engueranni et supradicte Adelidis filia…Judita comitissa domine supradicte filia”[818]. 1098.

c) HELISSENDE de Montreuil . The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. 1096. "Comes Hugo de Sancto Paulo" donated property to the abbey of Molesme with the consent of "uxoris sue Helisendis filiorumque suorum Ingelranni et Hugonis" by charter dated 17 Jun 1095[819]. m (before 1091) HUGUES [II] Comte de Saint-Pol, son of --- (-before [1118/19]).

Adélaïde m secondly ([1053/54]) LAMBERT de Boulogne Comte de Lens, son of EUSTACHE [I] Comte de Boulogne & his wife Mathilde de Louvain (-killed in battle Phalampin 1054).

Lambert & his wife had one child:

i) JUDITH (1054-after 1086). The foundation charter of Saint-Martin d´Auchy narrates the church´s foundation by “Guerinfrido qui condidit castellum…Albamarla” and names “Engueranni consulis qui filius fuit Berte supradicti Guerinfridi filie et Adelidis comitisse uxoris sue sororis…Willelmi Regis Anglorum” and “Addelidis comitissa supradicti Engueranni et supradicte Adelidis filia…Judita comitissa domine supradicte filia”[310]. The Vita et Passio Waldevi Comitis records that “Waldevus” married “rex Willelmus…neptem suam Juettam filiam comitis Lamberti de Lens, sororem…Stephani comitis de Albemarlia”[311]. A manuscript records that “Juditha comitissa…uxor Waldevi comitis Huntingdon, et neptis Gulielmi Conquestoris” founded Elstow priory[312]. Her marriage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis who calls her the king's "consobrina"[313]. Orderic Vitalis says Waltheof's marriage with Judith was arranged by King William "to strengthen the bonds of friendship" with her future husband[314]. She deposed against her husband when he was accused of involvement in the conspiracy of the Earls of Norfolk and Hereford in 1075[315]. m (1070) WALTHEOF Earl of Huntingdon, son of SIWARD Earl of Northumbria & his wife Ælfled of Northumbria (-executed St Giles's Hill, Winchester 31 May 1076, bur Crowland Abbey).

m thirdly ([1060]) EUDES III Comte de Troyes et d'Aumâle, son of ETIENNE I Comte de Troyes [Blois] & his wife Adela --- (-after 1118).

Comte Eudes III & his wife had one child:

1. ETIENNE de Troyes (before 1070-before 1130, maybe [1127]). Albert of Aix names "Stephanus de Albemarla filius Udonis comitis de Campania" among those present with Adhémar Bishop of Le Puy on the First Crusade[558]. He succeeded his mother in [1082/84] as Comte d’Aumâle. Florence of Worcester records that "Northymbrensis comes Rotbertus de Mulbrei et Willelmus de Owe" conspired against William II King of England in [1095], planning to place "filium amitæ illius Stephanus de Albamarno" on the English throne[559]. William of Tyre names Etienne Comte d'Albemarle among those who left on the First Crusade in 1096 with Robert Count of Flanders[560]. He was granted the lordship of Holderness in 1102. Orderic Vitalis reports that he supported Baudouin VII Count of Flanders and Guillaume "Clito" de Normandie against Henry I King of England in 1118[561]. A charter of King Henry II records donations to York St Mary, including the donation of “manerium Horneshay et ecclesiam…et Marram eius piscaturam et Thorp ibi juxta” by “Odo comes et Stephanus filius eius” and of “Fulfordam…” by “Stephanus (de Albemarla)”[562]. “Stephanus, Albermarlensis comes” founded Saint-Martin, Aumâle by undated charter which names “mater mea Adeliza…Willielmi regis Angliæ avunculi mei”[563]. m (before [1100]) HAWISE de Mortimer, daughter of RALPH de Mortimer of Wigmore, Herefordshire & his first wife Mélisende --- (before 1088[564]-). "Stephen count of Aumâle" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Martin-des-Champs, Paris with the consent of "Hauisa his wife and her father Ralf de Mortuomari" for the souls of "…Milesenda his wife deceased" by charter dated to [1100][565].
