  • Notes 
    • "His name is given only in Robert of Torigny's additions to [Gesta Normannorum Ducum by Guillaume de Jumi├Ęges], which states that after the death of William, Sprota was forced to become the concubine of a very rich man called Esperleng, who held mills at Vandreuil [GND (Rob. Tor.) vi, 17(38) (vol. 2, p. 175)]. But his existence is guaranteed by other sources which state that count Rodulf was a half-brother of Richard by the same mother [GND iv, 20 (vol. 1, pp. 134-5); see also Dudo iv, 77 (p. 171), who calls him a brother of Richard]."
