  General Notes:

Compiler's 27 x great-grandfather

  Research Notes:

His parentage is recorded by Orderic Vitalis.

He succeeded his brother after [1104] as Seigneur de Montfort-l'Amaury. Orderic Vitalis records that, after the death of his maternal uncle Guillaume "Crespin" Comte d'Evreux, Amaury claimed the succession but Henry I King of England "took the county of Evreux into his own hands" because he "had forfeited the king's favour by his effrontery". He led a major rebellion and captured the town of Evreux. King Henry besieged the castle but the two parties were reconciled by King Henry's nephew Thibaut Comte de Blois, when Amaury succeeded as Comte d'Evreux.

The necrology of Saint-Père-en-Vallée records the death "19 Apr" of "Amauricus princeps de Monteforti". The necrology of Haute-Bruyère lists members of the Montfort family who are buried in the abbey, starting with "conte Amaury…qui premier fonda l'eglise, dou fil le conte Simon le Chauf qui gist a Evreux". 1
