Amaury V DE MONTFORT, Comte d'Evreux
- Born: Montfort-l'Amaury, Yvelines, Ile-de-France, France
- Married: Abt 1170
- Died: 13 Mar 1182
Robert of Torigny records the death in 1182 of "Simon comes Ebroicensis" and the succession "in comitatu Ebroicensis in Normannia" of "Amalricus filius eius" and "in comitatu de Rocha et in terra Francie" of "Simon alter filius eius".
He succeeded his father in 1181 as Comte d'Evreux. The Annales Cestrienses record the death in 1181 of “Simon comes Ebroensis socer Hugonis comitis Cestrie”.
The necrology of the church of Evreux records the death "13 Mar" of "Symon comes Ebroicensis qui dedit c solidos" and the donation of "xl solidos" by "Amaricus filius eiusdem comitis". From the day of his death recorded in this source, it is assumed that the year as reported in the Annales Cestrienses was O.S. A charter dated Feb 1199 recalls a donation to the leprosery of Grand-Beaulieu near Chartres by "Amauricus de Monteforti", with the consent of "Amauricus parvus filius eiusdem Amaurici, qui erat sub custodia Amaurici de Mestenon", confirmed after his death by "Simon frater eius et successor", a later donation by "Simon iste comes Ebroicensis et Mahaudis uxor eius", and the present confirmation by "Simon de Monteforti, predictorum successor virorum et heres" with the consent of "uxore mea Eva et filiis meis Amaurico et Guidone et fratre meo Guidone". 1
Amaury married Mabel FitzRobert DE GLOUCESTER, daughter of William Fitzrobert DE GLOUCESTER, 2nd Earl of Gloucester, and Hawise DE BEAUMONT, about 1170. (Mabel FitzRobert DE GLOUCESTER was born in 1155 in Gloucestershire, England and died in 1198.)
