    Peter Stewart, on soc.genealogy.medieval, 5 Sep 2019:

    In CP vol xii part 1, p. 497 William [III de Warenne] is stated to have died on 19 January 1147/8 "when the rearguard of the French King's army was cut to pieces in the defiles of Laodicea". This was the battle at Cadmos mountain, when Louis VII had to fight his way to safety after being separated from his guard including William, Gaucher II of Châtillon & Montjay and Evrard III of Breteuil, who were killed.

    However, the battle took place ca 7 January, certainly before 19th which was the date given without citing any authority by George Watson in The Genealogist (1895), referenced in CP as "G. W. Watson in Genealogist, N.S., vol. xi, p. 132, and authorities there cited". Odo of Deuil, who was present, said that the battle took place on the day after the king's army set off from Laodicea, and they had stayed there only a few days after arriving on 3 or 4 January.

    Jonathan Phillips in his chronology in The Crusades, 1095–1204, second edition (2014), p xvii, placed the battle definitely on 7 January, but other historians have estimated 6 or 8 of the same month.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Henri I de Montjay

    Notes:

    First called "Henricus de Castellione" in 1117. See the entry on his wife Ermengarde for discussion of whether he or his wife was the heir of Châtillon.

    Henri married Ermengarde de Châtillon. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Ermengarde de Châtillon (daughter of Gaucher I de Châtillon).

    Notes:

    There is some question about whether this Ermengarde or her husband Henri was the heir of Gaucher I de Châtillon. Genealogics shows Henri as the heir, calling him, "Henri de Châtillon," husband of Ermengarde "de Mountjoy." But according to Peter Stewart, Jean-Noël Mathieu argued in 1992 that in fact Henri was Henri de Mountjay and his wife was Ermengarde de Châtillon, daughter (or sister) and heir of Gaucher I who died on crusade in 1101. Stewart's further remarks, posted 6 Sep 2019, are excerpted below:

    "I hadn't looked at Mathieu's article for some time, but now that my memory has been refreshed it's not 100% convincing about the descent of Châtillon, though I agree it seems more likely that Ermengarde was the heiress of the family rather than that her husband Henri was the heir.

    "We know for certain that Gui I of Châtillon (died after 1087) and his wife Ermengarde had sons named Gaucher and Jacques. Mathieu concluded that Ermengarde was either a sister of Gaucher and Jacques or a daughter of the latter, but I think she was more probably daughter of the former and still young when Gaucher was killed on crusade in August 1101.

    "She and her husband Henri occur first in a charter along with Jacques that is difficult to date precisely. It is a donation to Saint-Remi de Reims confirmed on 7 May 1123 but possibly made some while earlier ('nos videlicet Jacobus de Castellione filius Guidonis, et Henricus de Montegayo, et Hermengardis uxor mea ... Acta sunt apud Damairacum et confirmata sunt apud castrum Virtutum an. M. C. XXIII ... in mense maii, nonis ipsius mensis'). The charter was considered suspect by Pierre Varin in the early-19th century, but in 2007 Kimberly LoPrete thought it was reworked or carelessly copied and not an outright fabrication.

    "Anyway, there is no reason to doubt that Jacques occurred along with Henri of Montjay and the latter's wife Ermengarde, and that Henri was probably the direct informant of the scribe since he referred to 'my wife'. Henri first occurs with the denomination Châtillon ('Henricus de Castellione') in 1117. It seems less likely to me that he appeared as a donor along with his wife's brother or father after this than that he did so with her paternal uncle who had acted as castellan between the time of her father's death in 1101 and her marriage by 1117."
