Married (as her second husband), GRACE, widow of BERLAY Seigneur de Montreuil, daughter of --- (-25 Apr ----). The Historia sancti Florentii Salmurensisrecords the death of "Bellaius dominus Mosterolii castri", his burial in the abbey, and the donation by "huius coniux…Griscia postea Andegavensis comitissa" with the consent of "filiis suis Giraldo, Andegavis in Can Domini…interfecto, et Rainaldo multo post Remensium archiepiscopo". Although undated, this follows a passage recording an event in 1051. A charter of Ronceray records that Geoffroy "Martel" failed to restore to the abbey property donated by his mother, but rather gave it to "suis eas concubinis…quam uxoribus…Agneti primo, deinde Grecie, postea Adele comitis filie Odonis, item denuo Grecie, postremo Adelaidi Theutonice", which implies that Grace may have been the mistress of Geoffroy during the lifetime of her first husband. "Geoffroy Comte d'Anjou [et] Grecie sa femme" were among those present at the freeing of a serf under charter dated 1052. The necrology of Angers Cathedral records the death "VII Kal Mai" of "Grecia primus comitissa uxor Gauffridi Martelli postea sanctimonialis".
Grace married Geoffroy [II] d'Anjou Comte de Vendôme, d'Anjou et de Tours, son of Foulques [III] d'Anjou Comte d'Anjou and Hildegarde, before 15 Aug 1052.1 (Geoffroy [II] d'Anjou Comte de Vendôme, d'Anjou et de Tours was born on 14 Oct 1006 and died on 14 Nov 1060.)
