  1. 8.  Thomas de Marle was born about 1060 (son of Enguerrand I de Coucy and Ade de Roucy); died between 1129 and 1130.

    Notes:

    Also called Thomas de Coucy. Count of Amiens; lord of Coucy and Marle. "A notorious knight brigand."

    From Leo van de Pas's site:

    Thomas was lord of Coucy, Boves, Marle, La Fère, Crépy and Vervins. There was some doubt as to whether Enguerrand I was really his father (he had repudiated Thomas' mother over her adultery), and it appears that Enguerrand detested his son and sought to disinherit him.

    Before 1095 Thomas developed a reputation for rapacious cruelty. In April 1096 he joined the first crusade with his father and alongside the notorious Emicho of Leiningen, persecutor of the Rhineland Jews. He fought with great courage in a number of battles: Nicea (June 1097), Dorylaeum (July 1097), Al-Bara (December 1097), Antioch (June 1098), and Jerusalem in July 1099 he was one of the first Crusaders to enter the city.

    Thomas may have been marked by the cross, but he could not switch off the elemental ferocity that had driven him, and many of his comrades, to the gates of the Holy City. Returning to his country with little to show for such a long crusade, Thomas resumed his pillaging and devastation of the regions around Laon, from Amiens to Reims. He was even excommunicated by the pope during a council held in Beauvais in 1114.

    In October 1130 he was severely wounded by Raoul I 'the Valiant', comte de Vermandois, during the siege of Coucy ordered by King Louis VI, who wanted to put an end to the ravages of his vassal.

    Thomas died of his wounds on 9 November 1130. He was buried under the tower of the abbatial church of Nogent-sous-Coucy, and his body remained there until 3 April 1219, when it was moved to the church built by his grandson Enguerrand III. The chronicler of the time, Guibert de Nogent, abbot of the Benedictine Abbey of Nogent-sous-Coucy, wrote of him that he was the greatest scoundrel of his time.

    Thomas married Mélisende de Crecy about 1102. Mélisende (daughter of Guy de Crecy) died after 1147. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
