Louis, the son of King Charles II the Bald, was made king of Aquitaine under his father's tutelage in 867. Charles became emperor in 875 and two years later left Louis as regent while he defended Italy for Pope John VIII. Louis was elected king of the West Franks in December 877.
At a council at Troyes in 878, the Pope attempted to force Louis to take up the role of defender of the papacy, but Louis refused. Louis and his cousin Louis the Younger, ruler of the East Frankish kingdom, agreed to maintain the division of Lotharingia that their respective fathers had negotiated in the Treaty of Mersen in 870. Louis had hoped to redistribute offices of state but was frustrated by the Frankish magnates, who had accepted him as king on the condition that he respect their possessions and rights.

Louis the Stammerer was said to be physically weak and outlived his father by only two years. He had relatively little impact on politics. He was described "a simple and sweet man, a lover of peace, justice, and religion". In 878, he gave the counties of Barcelona, Girona, and Besal to Wilfred the Hairy. His final act was to march against the Vikings who were then the scourge of Europe. He fell ill and died on 10 April or 9 April 879 not long after beginning his final campaign.

10 Karl (Charles) III "Le Simple" CAROLING (King of the Franks) m (a) Frederuna van HAMALANT b 885 d 10 Feb 916) (b) Eadgifu de WESSEX (b 902 d aft 955) 918

Charles was king of France (893-922), whose authority came to be accepted by Lorraine and who settled the Northmen in Normandy but who became the first Carolingian ruler of the western kingdom to lose his crown.

The posthumous son of Louis II the Stammerer, Charles was too young to assume the throne on the death of his half-brother, Carloman, in 884 or that of his cousin, Charles the Fat, in 888. On Jan. 28, 893, however, he was crowned king by Fulk, archbishop of Reims; and, although he renounced his rights after civil war in 897, the death of King Eudes in the following year brought him general recognition as king.

Charles was strongly under the influence of Robert, brother of the dead Eudes. It was Robert's victory against the Northmen at Chartres in 911 which paved the way for the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte later that year, by which Charles ceded territory, in the area later known as Normandy, to the Viking leader Rollo and his men; in return, Rollo became a Christian and Charles's vassal. The Normans who had such an impact on Europe in the 11th and 12th centuries were the final product of this settlement.

In 911 also, the magnates of Lorraine (Lotharingia) accepted the authority of Charles on the death of the last Carolingian king of the East Franks, Louis the Child. Charles's preoccupation with Lotharingian affairs and councillors alienated the nobles of Neustria, however, and in 922 they elected Robert king. Charles killed Robert in battle in 923 but was soon taken prisoner by Herbert, count of Vermandois, who used him for his own gain against Rudolf, Robert's son-in-law and the new king.

In 922 Charles III lost the throne and the next year he taken prisoner by Count Herbert II of Vermandois, an ally of the then current king. To protect her son's safety Eadgifu took him to England in 923 to the court of her half-brother, Athelstan of England. Because of this, Louis IV of France became known as Louis d'Outremer of France. He stayed there until 936, when he was called back to France to be crowned King. Eadgifu accompanied him. She retired to a convent in Laon, but married Herbert son of Herbert II, Count of Vermandois (born about 920).

23 Louis IV "d'Outre Mer" CAROLING (King of the West Franks and Holy Roman Emperor) m Gerberga von SACHSEN (b 914 d 5 May 984) 25 Apr 940

Louis was king of France from 936 to 954 who spent most of his reign struggling against his powerful vassal Hugh the Great de Vemandois.

When Louis's father, Charles III the Simple, was imprisoned in 923, his mother, Eadgifu, daughter of the Anglo-Saxon king Edward the Elder, took Louis to England. (Hence his nickname - d'Outre Mer" - which means from overseas) He was recalled to France in 936 and crowned on June 19 at Laon by Artand, archbishop of Reims, who became Louis's chief supporter against Hugh the Great. Louis proved not to be the puppet monarch that Hugh had anticipated; he even moved from Paris to Laon to avoid Hugh's influence. When Hugh and Herbert of Vermandois seized Reims and attacked Laon in 940, Louis valiantly defended his city; but because of Louis's earlier interference in Lorraine the German king, Otto I, sent aid to the rebels. Louis appeared to be totally defeated in 941, but he made peace with Otto in November 942 at Vise on the Meuse, and Hugh and he were reconciled after Herbert, Hugh's chief supporter, died in 943.

In 945, while intervening in Norman politics, Louis was captured and handed over to Hugh, who imprisoned him for a year. On his release, Louis closely allied himself with Otto to retake Reims in 946. In 949 Louis again received control of Laon, and Hugh, excommunicated by French and German synods and by the Pope, made a peace in 951 that lasted until Louis's death.

De Gournay coat of arms

68 Hugh I de GOURNAY b abt 930 Gournay en Bray m unknown

Note: Hugh I de Gournay . founded the priory of La Ferte en Brai, at the command of "fratre Hugone", by charter dated to 989/96, which names his father Renaud and his mother Alberade. The "command" of his brother suggests that Hugh was the older son, and presumably also Seigneur de Gournay. Hugh is reported to have been the first to make Gournay a place of strength. The records ascribe to him the erection of a citadel surrounded by a triple wall and fosse, and further secured by a tower named after him, "La Tour Hue," which was standing as late as the beginning of the 17th century. Such was the reputed strength of this fortress that a rhyming chronicler (William de Brito) declared it was able to resist a hostile attack undefended by a single soldier.

69 Hugh II de Gournay m unknown

Note: Hugh was Seigneur of Gourney. Hugh was one of the Norman leaders of the fleet of forty ships which accompanied Edward the Saxon Prince, son of King Ethelred, to England in 1035, when, on the death of Cnut, he made an attempt to recover the kingdom. The expedition sailed from Barfleur, and landed at Southampton, but was ill received by the English, who had espoused the cause of Harold Harefoot. Edward, seeing the disposition of the country, returned with his fleet to Barfleur, more fortunate than his brother Alfred, who, at the same time making a descent on Dover, was taken prisoner by Earl Godwin, confined in the Monastery of Ely, had his eyes put out, and died shortly afterwards. In the year he died he was wounded at the seige of Cardiff and returned to France only to be killed in battle

80 Robert de BLOUETTE m unknown

Note: Robert was Bishop of Lincoln and was chancellor to William I. and Rufus. From the latter he received the see of Lincoln in succession to Remigius. His private character was indifferent; but he administered his see with skill and prudence, built largely, and kept a magnificent household, which served as a training-school even for the sons of nobles. Bloet was active in assisting Henry I. during the rebellion of 1102, and became that monarch's justiciar. Latterly, however, he fell out of favour, and, although he had been very rich, was impoverished by the fines which the king extorted from him. Perhaps his wealth was his chief offence in the king's eyes; for he was in attendance on Henry when seized with his last illness. He was the patron of the chronicler Henry of Huntingdon, whom he advanced to an archdeaconry

Children of Robert and unknown
95......Emma b abt 1068 Briqueville-la-Blouette, Normandy
96......Simon b abt 1075 Briqueville-la-Blouette, Normandy

Note: Simon was Dean of Lincoln. Henry of Huntingdon wrote The History of the English People; 1000-1154 as follows

If I were to pursue individual examples, this letter would turn into a great volume. But I will not omit our dean, Simon, who was the son of Robert our bishop, whom he had fathered while he was chancellor to the great King William. Being brought up, appropriately enough, in the royal household, and appointed our dean while still a boy, he soon advanced in the kings close friendship and in offices at court.
He was quick-witted, a good speaker, physically handsome, radiant with charm, possessing mature discretion despite his youth, but tainted with the sin of pride. From pride there grew envy, from envy hatred, from hatred slanders, strife, and accusations. He made an accurate prediction about himself when he said, "I pass among the courtiers like salt among live eels". For as salt tortures eels, so with his accusations he tormented all those who attended the king. But just as salt is ruined by the moisture, so he was destroyed by the whispering of all. He knew the first part of the pr ophecy, but he did not foresee the second part.
He unwittingly spoke the truth of himself . So having been elevated to the top position at court and in the kingdom, after a short time he fell headlong into the king's deepest loathing, and was put into prison, from which he is said to have escaped by way of the sewer, and still a young man he went into exile and misery. The truth of this saying was well demonstrated in him "Those who are brought up in beds of roses are surrounded by manure." So we should not set a great value on noble boys or young men whose appearance, riches, and favors are dazzling to our eyes, since many of them may in time be reduced to the greatest misfortune. Then all the hopes of the foolish are dissolved, and what was brought out of nothing is returned to nothing

83 Hugh III de GOURNAY m 86 Basilia FLAITEL(widow of Raoul de Gace) abt 1070

Note: Hugh was given lands by William the Conqueror. Some of these lands were the manors of Liston, Fordham, and Ardley in Essex, all of which appear in the Domesday Survey. In 1077, he witnessed the foundation charter of the monastery of St. Stephens at Caen by King William the Conqueror and in 1082 the foundation charter of the nunnery of Holy Trinity Caen by King William the Conqueror and his wife, Queen Maud. Hugh and his wife, Basile, retired to the Abbey of Bec in France c. 1082 with her niece, Ansfride. They were still living c. 1093, when St. Anselm was consecrated Archbishop of Canterbury. A letter from Anselm to Basile has been preserved. He predeceased his wife. Both are buried at the Abbey of Bec. Hugh de Gournay was a man of high military renown.

85 William de WARENNE 1st Earl of Surrey m Gundred

Castle Acre Castle, Norfolk, Built by William de Warenne

Note: Grundred was the daughter of William, Duke of Normandy - "The Conquerer"

At some time in or after 1054 Duke William gave William Warenne the castle of Mortemer, which had been forfeited by his kinsman, Roger de Mortimer, after the Battle of Mortemer in February of that year. Probably at the same time he acquired lands at Bellencombre, the castle of which became the caput of the Warenne barony in Normandy. In 1066 he was one of the Norman barons summoned by the Duke to a Council on hearing that Harold had been crowned King after the death of the Confessor. He took part in the invasion of England and was present at the Battle of Hastings. He was rewarded with lands in 13 counties, including most of the rape of Lewes in Sussex, the manor of Conisborough, co. York, and Castle Acre and the manors of Carletune and Benington, in Lincolnshire as well as a number of holdings in Norfolk. In 1067 he was one of the Norman nobles whom the Conqueror left in England to support his vice-regents, William FitzOsbern and the Bishop of Bayeux. In 1075 he was one of the two chief justiciars who were in charge of England when the Earls of Hereford and Norfolk rebelled and who summoned them to the King's court, and on their refusal crushed the rebellion . About 1083-85 he was fighting for the King in Maine . In the spring of 1088 he supported William II against the rebels led by the Bishop of Bayeux and the Count of Mortain, and to secure his loyalty he was created, shortly after Easter (16 April) 1088, Earl of Surrey, his immediate successors being styled more usually Earls de Warrenne. He was mortally wounded at the siege of Pevensey before the end of May. He founded Lewes priory as a cell of Cluny abbey, about 1078-82

Note: In 1090 William fought in Normandy against Robert de Belleme (afterwards 3rd Earl of Shrewsbury), who was supported by Duke Robert. Shortly after 1093 he sought unsuccessfully to marry Maud, daughter of Malcolm III, King of Scotland. He was with Henry I at Windsor on 3 September 1101, but later in that autumn he went with Duke Robert to Normandy and supported him against the King, who confiscated his inheritance in England; however, in 1103 the Duke induced Henry to restore his English Earldom. In 1106 he commanded a division of the royal army at the battle of Tinchebrai.
