1. Hubert de Vendôme Vicomte de Vendôme


  • Marriage (1): Hubert de Vendôme Vicomte de Vendôme 1

  General Notes:

EMELINE, daughter of --- (-20 Apr ----). The necrology of Angers Cathedral records the death "XII Kal Mai" of "Hamelina mater domini Huberti episcopi". Steven Fanning has suggested that Emeline was the daughter of Fulcrad Vicomte de Vendôme, whom her husband succeeded in the vicomté, and brother of Foucher "le Riche" (see below Part G), based on the property donations quoted in the present section and also the apparent transmission of names in the two families. The hypothesis is attractive. However, if there was a family connection, it seems more likely that Vicomte Fulcrad would have been the father of two daughters, Emeline and Hildearde [Adela] who is recorded as the wife of Foucher "le Riche", otherwise it would be difficult to explain why Foucher did not succeed his father as vicomte de Vendôme. 1

Emeline married Hubert de Vendôme Vicomte de Vendôme.1 (Hubert de Vendôme Vicomte de Vendôme died after 1006 1.)
