About Fulcois, Seigneur de Nogent-le-Rotrou. Comte de Mortagne

Fulcois Perche

From Wikipedia (Translated from French)

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulcois_du_Perche

Fulcois or Fulcuich was probably Count of Mortagne at the end of x th century .

Certainties

He is quoted as Count in a donation made ​​to 1051 / 60 by Rotrou II , Count of Mortagne, Vicomte de Châteaudun , for the repose of the soul of, among others, his grandfather Fulcois. Father of Rotrou, Geoffroy II , Viscount Châteaudun that qualifies nephew 's Hugues de Châteaudun , Archbishop of Tours , mentions his mother and his uncle Melisende Burchard in an act he signed in 1032. Other documents establish that the viscount Geoffroy II is a grand-son of Rotrou , Count de Nogent , and Archbishop Hugh is a son of Geoffroy I first Viscount Châteaudun and a Hildegarde.

Family assumptions

From these documents a family reconstitution was made: Rotrou I st is the son of Geoffrey II, who is the son of Fulcois and Melisende. It appears equally clear that both grandparents Geoffroy Geoffroy II I first Châteaudun and Nogent Rotrou.

Traditional genealogies offer Fulcois see as a son of Nogent Rotrou and Melisende like a girl Geoffroy I first Châteaudun. This genealogy, however, poses a number of problems:

why I Hugues er , when he became archbishop in 1003, he gave the Viscount of Chateaudun to his sister's son, he would have at least one brother, certainly died before 1003, but the father of two son? why the stronghold of Mortagne-au-Perche, probably held by Hildegard of Hugh's family, mother, would it then be held by a son of the latter, to the exclusion of his two son? Reconstruction has proposed Fulcois see as a son of Geoffroy I first Châteaudun Melisende and as a daughter of Nogent Rotrou. This proposal solves the problems mentioned above.

Synthesis

Fulcois is probably son of Geoffroy I first Viscount Châteaudun and Hildegarde de Mortagne. In 980 years, he inherited the county of Mortagne-au-Perche, which was held by his maternal uncle Hervé II . He married Melisende, probable daughter of Rotrou , lord of Nogent, who dona birth:

Hugues (v.1000 †), married Beatrice of Mâcon and ancestor by his son Geoffrey II Ironwood , the Plantagenets ; Geoffroy († 1039), Viscount Châteaudun Lord of Mortagne and Nogent. This marriage allowed him to death Rotrou occurred after 996, to bring the two strongholds of Mortagne and Nogent, which will form the future union county of Perche. Fulcois died before 1003 . Indeed, at that date, his brother Hugh became Archbishop of Tours and transfers the Viscount of Châteaudun's son Fulcois. Presumably if Fulcois was still alive at that date, he would become Viscount Châteaudun.
