Vcte Aubry D' ORLÉANS 1
Compiler's 32/33/34/35 great-grandfather
The geographically extensive county of Orléans...was incorporated into the domaine royale of the Capetian kings with the accession of Hugues "Capet" in 987.
Europäischen Stammtafeln includes a more detailed proposed reconstruction of the early generations of the family of the Vicomtes d’Orléans which links them to the seigneurs de Montmorency... The precise basis for the proposal has not yet been traced, but it is possible that it pivots around the undated charter (dated by Europäische Stammtafeln to 975 of Saint-Aubin d’Angers which recites the history of land at Champigné-sur-Sarthe, recording that Geoffroy I "Grisegonelle", Comte d’Anjou from 958 to 987, brought "de pago Parisiacensi quendam Albericum consanguineum suum" to Anjou and granted him "omnem terram de Vieriis et capellam Sanctæ Mariæ Caritatis".
The name of Aubry's wife is not known. The Gesta Episcoporum Autissiodorensium names "Betto…natione…Burgundie…Senonice urbis indigena" and "patre Alberico eque Burgundione editus, matre…Angela Francigena" when recording his election as Bishop of Auxerre... 2
