  • Notes 
    • "She must have married young, as after her husband's death her sons wished to find her a second husband, 'timentes ne quia adhuc juvenis erat a consortio viri se abstinere non valeret.' She devoted herself, however, to good works, founding a hospital at Ivry, and to religious exercises, having learned the psalter by heart in her youth. Finally she took the religious habit and settled as a recluse beside the abbey of St. Martin at Pontoise, where she died in the odour of sanctity on the third of June; the Martyrology of Chastellain, cited by Depoin, gives the year as 1115. In spite of her undoubted piety, the monks of Saint-Père-de-Chartres accused her of forcibly seizing land which had been given to the abbey by her mother's sister Gertrude, but, as they seem to have contented themselves with leaving the matter to Divine justice, one is tempted to suspect that a merely human judge would have decided in her favour. It may be noted that she is described as 'uxor Rodberti militis de castro Ebroico'." [Complete Peerage]
