  • Notes 
    • William "Longsword".

      Says The Henry Project about his birth "overseas": "[I].e., not on the European mainland, and therefore possibly in Britain, Ireland, Scandinavia, or one of the islands held by Vikings (Orkneys, Hebrides, Man, etc.), all plausible places for the son of a Viking to be born."

      Assassinated, possibly by or at the instigation of Arnulf/Arnulph/Arnoul "The Old", Count of Flanders.
