  General Notes:

RAOUL [III] (-after [1010]). "Rodulfus…Cenomannus vicecomes…mee bone coniugis Godehelt…filio Rodulfo" donated property to the abbey of Saint-Victeur du Mans by charter dated to [994]. "Rodulfus Cenomanensium vicecomes" donated two serfs to the abbey of Saint-Florent, Saumur, in the presence of "conjuge mea Widenore et filiis meis Rodulfo, Gosfrido, Ivelino et Huberto" by undated charter, signed by "Ivelini clerici, primogeniti sui, Gosfridi et Rodulfi et Huberti filiorum eius". "Widdo Lononis filius" donated "Gaudiacus" to Saint-Pierre de la Couture, with the consent of "dominis meis Hugone atque Herberto comitibus et vice comite Radulpho eiusque filii...Yvo archidiaconus, vice comes Radulphus atque Gaufridus" by undated charter dated to [1000/15]. Vicomte du Maine. "…Radulphi vicecomitis, Odonis fratris eius…" witnessed the charter dated to [1010] under which "Gaufridus de Sabolio" founded the priory of Solesmes.

[m EREMBURGIS, daughter --- (-1 Jan [1028/1049]). The necrology of La Charité records the deaths "Kal Jan" of Eremburgis vicecomitissa et monacha, et Odilo abbas". Depoin suggests that Eremburgis was vicomtesse du Maine (the chronology suggests that, if this is correct, she was the wife of Raoul [III]), and dates her death from the foundation of La Charité in 1028 and the death of Odilon Abbot of Cluny 1 Jan 1049. He identifies her as Eremburgis, sister (he incorrectly says "daughter") of Ives (see ALENÇON, in the document NORMANDY NOBILITY) who founded Abbayette Saint-Michel by charter dated 10 Oct 997. This appears to be pure speculation. If Depoin is correct, and if the origin of Godehildis (first wife of Vicomte Raoul [II]) is correct as suggested above, Raoul [III] and his wife would have been second cousins.] 1

Raoul married Eremburgis, daughter of Yves and Unknown, after 997.1 (Eremburgis died before 1049 1.)
