  General Notes:

[ALBREDA, daughter of --- (-murdered ----). Orderic Vitalis records that "Albereda uxor Radulfi Bajocensis comitis" built "arcem de Ibreio" [Ivry] which "Hugo Bajocensis episcopus frater Johannis Rotomagensis archiepiscopi"defended "contra duces Normannorum multo tempore", adding that it was reported that "præfata matrona" beheaded "Lanfredum architectum"after the castle was finished so that he could not build a similar structure for anyone else, and tried to expel her husband who killed her. It is not certain that "Albereda" in Orderic´s passage was the same person as "Eremburgam" in Guillaume de Jumièges. It is curious that Orderic does not state in his text that Hugues Bishop of Bayeux and Jean Archbishop of Rouen were the children of "Albereda": the omission would best be explained if they were born from another marriage of Raoul and "Eremburgam" their mother was a different person from "Albereda". If this speculation is correct, the chronology of the children of Raoul suggests that they were born later in his life, presumably from a second marriage if he did marry twice, in which case Albreda would have been his first wife.] 1


Albreda married Raoul d'Ivry Comte de Bayeux. (Raoul d'Ivry Comte de Bayeux was born between 942 and 950 1 and died after 1011 1.)
