General Notes: Husband - Xerses I , King of Persia

(Persian Khshayarsha) Ascending the throne upon the death of his father,
he subdued a rebellion in Egypt, and then spent three years preparing a
great fleet and army to punish the Greeks for aiding the Ionian cities in
498 bc and for their victory over the Persians at Marathon in 490 bc. The
Greek historian Herodotus gives as the combined strength of Xerxes' land
and naval forces the incredible total of 2,641,610 warriors. Xerxes is
said to have crossed the Hellespont by a bridge of boats more than a
kilometer in length and to have cut a canal through the isthmus of Mount
Athos. During the spring of 480 bc he marched with his forces through
Thrace, Thessaly, and Locris. At Thermopylae 300 Spartans, under their
king, Leonidas I, made a courageous but futile stand, delaying the
Persians for ten days. Xerxes then advanced into Attica and burned Athens,
which had been abandoned by the Greeks. At the Battle of Salamís later in
480 bc, however, his fleet was defeated by a much smaller contingent of
Greek warships commanded by the Athenian Themistocles. Xerxes thereupon
retired to Asia Minor, leaving his army in Greece under the command of his
brother-in-law, Mardonius (fl. 500-479 bc), who was slain at Plataea the
following year. Xerxes was murdered at Persepolis by Artabanus (died 464
bc), captain of the palace guard; he was succeeded by his son Artaxerxes I
(reigned 465-425 bc). Xerxes is generally identified as the Ahasuerus of
the Book of Esther.

General Notes: Husband - Robert I "The Magnificent" Normandy, 6th Duke Normandy

Robert I, byname ROBERT The MAGNIFICENT, or The DEVIL, French ROBERT le MAGNIFIQUE, or le DIABLE (d. July 1035, Nicaea), duke of Normandy (1027-35), the younger son of Richard II of Normandy and the father, by his mistress Arlette, of William the Conqueror of England. On the death of his father (1026/27), Robert contested the duchy with his elder brother Richard III, legally the heir, until the latter's opportune death a few years later. A strong ruler, Robert succeeded in exacting the obedience of his vassals. On the death of Robert II the Pious, king of France (1031), a crisis arose over the succession to the French throne. The Duke gave his support to Henry I against the party favouring his younger brother; in reward for his services he demanded and received the Vexin Français, a territory not far north of Paris. A patron of the monastic reform movement, he died while returning from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. [Encyclopaedia Britannica CD '97]

Roots: Robert I, Duke of Normandy. Married (Danish wife) Arlette (or
Herleve). Left issue by this mistress.
K: Robert I "le Magnifique ou le Diable." Count d'Hieme. Duke of Normandy.
In line 1350 he cal ls him erroneously calls him Richard I.
Robert was called both "The Magnificent" and also "Robert the
Devil," because of his "reckless and violent deeds of audacity, whether in
private life or in warlike expeditions." In 1034 or 1035, after a "fair life
from the political point of view, but one full of turbulence and moral
irregularity" he undertook a pilgrimage, barefoot, to Jerusalem" to expiate his sins..." The Norman prelates and barons urged him not to go because they
believed he might die on the pilgrimage (they were right) and he had no
successor. Robert, therefore, named his bastard son, William, as his successor and prevailed upon King Henry I of France to sanction the arrangement--a decision the king was later to regret.
Guizot says Robert I was the fifth in succession from Rollo, the first ruler
of Normandy. William was named after William Longsword, the son and successor
of Rollo. So the Norman reign went from Rollo, to William Longsword, Richard I, Richard II, Richard III, Robert I and William, who would become William the Conqueror and, subsequently, William I, King of England.
Richard III and Robert I were sons of Richard II, according to a chart in
Butler.
Robert instructed Herluin (another spelling) de Conteville to marry his
mistress, Harlette, if he failed to return from the Crusade. Herluin did so,
and they had children.
Dukes says Robert's last years were marked by signs of "eccentricity, if not
unsoundness of mind."
AIS: Robert, Duke of Normandy, born about 995, Normandy, France; died 2 July
1035, Nicaea, Turkey.
Davis: Robert I, the Magnificent, Duke of Normandy 1027-1035.

Note: Robert contributed to the restoration of Henry King of France to his throne, and received from the gratitude of that monarch, the Vexin, as an additional to his patrimonial domains. In the 8th year of his reign, curiosity or devotion induced him to undertake a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, where the fatigues of the journey and the heat of the climate so impaired his consitution he died on his way home.

================================================

CHAPTER I: THE CONQUEROR
The Conqueror and His Companions
by J.R. Planche, Somerset Herald. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1874.

His father was Robert I, Duke of Normandy, styled by some "the Magnificent," from his liberalities and love of splendour; "the Jerusalemite," in consequence of his pilgrimage; and by others less courteously "the Devil," though wherefore or at what period has not been satisfactorily ascertained. From a passage in "L'Estoire de Seint ?dward le Rei," it would appear there was a tradition in the family of Rollo, of one of his descendants (Richard I?) having beaten and bound his Satanic majesty,

"E Duc Richard de'apres li vint,
Ki li diable ateint e tint
E le venqait e le lia."

Robert was the second son of Richard II, Duke of Normandy, by his wife Judith, daughter of Conan le Tort (the Crooked), Count of Rennes, and sister of the half blood to Geoffrey, Duke of Brittany; and it was during the lifetime of his father, and while Robert was only Count of the Hiemois, and it may be in his nonage that he first saw Herleve, Harlett, or Arlot (for it is written in all manner of ways), daughter of a burgess of Falaise, an accident the results of which were the subjugation of England and the succession of a line of kings unsurpassed for valour and power by the greatest sovereigns in Europe.


The Conqueror and His Companions
by J.R. Planche, Somerset Herald. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1874.

"... Robert's lawful marriage with Estrith, sister of Canute the Great, and widow of UIf, a distinguished Dane, who was murdered by order of his brother-in-law in 1025. Robert is said to have ill used and repudiated her, at what exact period is unknown; but he had no issue by her, which might possibly be one cause of his displeasure."

General Notes: Husband - Valentinian III , Western Roman Emperor

He was put on the throne under the regency of his mother by Theodosius II,
Roman emperor of the East (401-50). Valentinian was weak; from 433 to 454
his general Flavius Aetius (396?-454) was the actual ruler. During his
reign, much of the Western Empire was ravaged by invaders; Africa was
seized (429) by Gaiseric, king of the Vandals, and the Danubian provinces,
Gaul, and Italy were overrun (441) by Attila, king of the Huns. Aetius won
a great victory over Attila in 451 at Chalons-sur-Marne, Gaul. Valentinian
killed Aetius in 454 but was murdered the following year by two of the
general's supporters.
