General Notes: Wife - Adela Of Normandy, Princess Of England

Adela, French ADÉLE (b. 1062?--d. 1137), daughter of William I the Conqueror of England and his wife, Matilda of Flanders, and mother of Stephen, king of England, whose right to the throne derived through her. She was married to Stephen, earl of Meaux and Brie, in 1080 at Breteuil. Upon the death of his father in 1090, her husband succeeded to the earldom of Blois and Chartres. She appears to have played an active role in the administration of her husband's lands, regularly witnessing his charters, took an active interest in civil and ecclesiastical affairs, and was instrumental in rebuilding the catherdral of Chartres in stone. Having inherited her father's appetite and ability to rule, she became regent in 1095 when she persuaded her popular but weak-willed husband to join the First Crusade to the Holy Land. Although in charge of the central funds of the Crusade, Stephen deserted at Antioch in 1098, understandably enough in face of overwhelming odds. Unfortunately for his reputation, the crusaders survived and succeeded in capturing Jerusalem in 1099. After Stephen's return home in 1099, Adela waged a sustained campaign of bullying and moral blackmail that extended into their bedroom where, between intercourse, she would urge Stephen to think of his reputation and return to the Holy Land. In the end, her nagging worked and Stephen departed east once more in 1101, to meet a satisfactorily noble death at Ramlah in 1102. No longer a coward's wife but more congenially a hero's widow, Adela continued to rule Blois-Chartres during the minority of her sons. Anselm, her guest and teacher in 1097, was often entertained by her during 1103 and 1105 and she affected a temporary reconciliation between him and her brother, Henry I, who lavished patronage on her second son, Stephen, and appointed a third, Henry, bishop of Winchester, the richest see in England. In 1107 Adela entertained Pope Pascal during Easter and in the following year was hostess to Bohemund of Antioch. She made her son Theobald her successor in 1109, and persuaded him to join her brother Henry I against France in 1117. In 1120 she retired to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire where she died in 1137. By all accounts a forceful personality, Adela's qualities were not uncommon among women artistocrats, although more often they found an outlet in the running of nunneries. Adela's secular career, as de facto ruler for more than a decade of one of the most powerful principalities of northern France, is exceptional testimony to the power of breeding as well as to her own determination. She was a benevolent patroness of churches and monasteries. Although married to a French count and living to see a son crowned king of England, she chose to be buried beside her mother at Caen under an inscription 'Adela, filia regis'. She was always the Conqueror's daughter. [Sources: Who's Who in Early Medieval England, Christopher Tyerman, Shepheard-Walwyn, Ltd., London, 1996; Encyclopćdia Britannica CD, 1997]

---------------------

He [Gerald de Windsor] married Nest, daughter of Rhys ap Tudor Mawr, PRINCE OF SOUTH WALES (e ). The date of his death is not known, presumably before 1136. [Complete Peerage X:10-11, (tr anscribed by Dave Utzinger)]

(e) In 1106, when Owen ap Cadugan carried her off, two of her sons and a daughter by Gerald d e Windsor were taken with her, the sons being returned later to their father. By Stephen, co nstable of Cardigan (query after Gerald's death), Nest bore a son, Robert FitzStephen, and b y Henry I a son Henry (killed 1158), father of Meiler FitzHenry, which Robert and Meiler wer e later brothers-in-arms of the Geraldines in Ireland.

Known as the most beautiful woman in Wales. She had many lovers. In Christmas 1108 Owain ap C adwgan of Cardigan came to visit Gerald and Nesta. He so lusted after her that he, that night , attacked the castle and carried her off and had his way with her. This upset Henry I [Kin g of England] so much that the incident started a war.
Source:www.dcs.hull.ac.ukShe was stunningly beautiful, called the Helen of Wales. She was th e daughter of the last king of independent Deheubarth, she was the mistress of Henry I, kin g of England,and had a son by him Robert DeCarn, Earl of Dorchester and Gloucester. Henry I t ook the throne away from his brother in 1100. She was the wife of Gerald de Windsor,Constabl e of Pembroke, she was romantically abducted by Owain ap Cadwgan,son of the Prince of Powys , and is generally supposed to have had any number of other romantic liaisons. She was the fo under of more dynasties than is polite to mention. Thousands of Welsh children today are stil l refered to as Nest in her honour.

General Notes: Husband - Stephen I , King of Hungary

He was also called St. Stephen, founder of the Árpád dynasty. A pagan at
birth, he was converted to Christianity in his youth. He became duke of
Hungary in 997. Shortly thereafter a pagan revolt broke out in several
Hungarian provinces; Stephen immediately attacked the insurgents and
defeated them at Veszprém. He was crowned king in 1001; on the occasion of
his coronation Pope Sylvester II sent a crown from Rome and accorded him
the title Apostolic Majesty, which was borne by Hungarian sovereigns until
the overthrow of the Hungarian monarchy in 1918. His reign was notable for
the propagation of Christianity and the suppression of paganism throughout
Hungary. He was canonized in 1083 and became the patron saint of Hungary.
His feast day is August 16.
