TheHistoria Francorum names (in order) "Hugonem qui cognominatus est Magnus, Henricum, Robertum, Odonem" as the four sons of King Robert and his wife Constance. Rodulfus Glauber names "Heinricus rex…germanium suum Rotbertum" when recording the latter's installation as duke of Burgundy by his brother. His mother supported him as candidate to be consecrated associate king in 1027, in place of his older brother Henri who was supported by their father. His father named him heir to the duchy of Burgundy in 1030. He was installed as ROBERT I Duke of Burgundy in 1032 by his brother King Henri I. Comte d'Auxerre in 1040, when he conquered the county after Hugues Bishop of Auxerre died in 1039. He lost it after the 1060 council of Autun which ended his war with Nevers.

"Robertus dux Burgundiorum cum uxore mea Helia" donated "terram...Villare Bichet...in pago Belnensi" to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, with the consent of "filiorum nostrorum Hugonis et Henrici", by charter dated to [1043/44]. "Robertus dux et duo filii mei Hugo et Henricus" renounced rights to revenue from land "in Gilliaco" in favour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés by charter dated 2 Feb 1053. The necrology of Cîteaux records the death "VIII Id Mar" of "Robertus…dux Burgundie". The necrology of Molesme records the death "XV Kal Apr" of "Robertus dux Burgundie et Ermengardis uxor eius".

m firstly ([1033], repudiated [1048/50]) HELIE de Semur, daughter of DALMAS [I] Seigneur de Semur-en-Brionnais & his wife Aramburge--- ([1016]-Semur-en-Brionnais, Saône-et-Loire 22 Apr after 1055). "Robertus dux Burgundionum" confirmed the possessions of Cluny by charter dated [1040] subscribed by "Ilie uxoris eius". The date of the marriage is deduced from the charter, dated to [1034], which is subscribed by "Roberti ducis et uxoris sue", under which "Gibuinus" confirmed a donation to Saint-Etienne de Dijon. "Robertus Burgundie dux" renounced rights "in villa...Gilliacus..." in favour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés by charter dated 22 Sep 1040, subscribed by "...Elie conjugis eius...".

Her parentage is confirmed by the Vita S Hugonis, which records that "Dux Burgundie, gener eius" killed the father of St Hugues (abbot of Cluny) by his own hand. The "Notes historiques sur le prieuré de Marcigny", included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire, name (in order) "sancti Hugonis abbatis Cluniacensis et Gaufredi Sinemurensis, Andræ levitæ, Joceranni et Dalmatii, et sororum eorundem…Materdis, Adalaidæ et Cecilæ atque Evellæ" as children of "Dalmatius", but do not make the link with Duke Robert. "Robertus dux et uxor sua Hylia" donated money to the church of Saint-Etienne de Dijon by undated charter. She was repudiated, presumably on grounds of consanguinity, before [1050] when Jean Abbot of Fécamp wrote to Pope Leo IX recording that "Tedbaldo comite et Burgundionum…duce R" had "abdicatis legitimi thori connumbiis" and had "in inhonestis et consanguinitate fœdatis thalamis". She became a nun as PETRONILLE after her repudiation. The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 22 Apr of "Helya uxor Rotberti ducis".

m secondly ([1049]) as her second husband, ERMENGARDE [Blanche] d'Anjou, widow of GEOFFROY II "Ferréol" Seigneur de Château-Landon, Comte de Gâtinais, daughter of FOULQUES III "Nerra/the Black" Comte d'Anjou & his second wife Hildegarde de Metz ([1018]-murdered church of Fleury-sur-Ouche, Côte d'Or 18 Mar 1076, bur Abbaye de Saint-Seine, Côte d'Or). The Historiæ Andegavensis names "Goffridi de Castro Landono et Ermengardis filia Fulconis Comitis Andegavensis" as parents of "Fulco comes Andegavensis". Her second marriage is deduced from a genealogy of the Comtes d'Anjou which names "Fulco (pater) Gosfridus et Ermengardis (mater) Gosfridus (et) Fulco (et) Hildegardis, de altero patre, filia Roberti ducis fratris Henrici regis". The necrology of Molesme records the death "XV Kal Apr" of "Robertus dux Burgundie et Ermengardis uxor eius". She was murdered with her husband.
