  • Notes 
    • Count of Boulogne. Also known as Eustace aux Gernons (Eustace with the mustaches).

      Fought at Hastings. Wikipedia: "In the following year, probably because he was dissatisfied with his share of the spoil, he assisted the Kentishmen in an attempt to seize Dover Castle. The conspiracy failed, and Eustace was sentenced to forfeit his English fiefs. Subsequently he was reconciled to the Conqueror, who restored a portion of the confiscated lands."
