   Research Notes:

Guillaume of Jumièges records that Duke Richard II married secondly after the death of his first wife “Papiam” by whom he had “Malgerium...archipræsulem et Willelmum Archacensem”. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Malgerius Rothomagensis archiepiscopus" as son of "dux Normannie Richardus II". His parentage is given by Orderic Vitalis, who says he was "excessively addicted to the lusts of the flesh and distractions of the world".

Archbishop of Rouen 1037. Guillaume of Jumièges records that “Malgerius frater Roberti ducis” was appointed archbishop of Rouen after the death of “Roberto Rotomagensi archiepiscopo”. Robert of Torigny records that "Malgerius nepos eius" succeeded as archbishop of Rouen in 1037 on the death of his uncle Robert. He governed the see for "18 years without receiving either apostolic blessing or the pallium", according to Orderic Vitalis who says that "Mauger too young received the seat of honour". "Malgerii arciepiscopi…" subscribed the charter dated to [1040] under which "Vuillelmus Ricardi magni ducis Normannorum filius" donated property to the abbey of Jumièges. "Guillelmus Archensis comes et frater meus Malgerius Archiepiscopus" donated the vill of Periers sur Andelle to the monastery of Saint-Ouen at Rouen, at the request of "matris mee Paveie" and the consent of "Guilielmo Normannorum comite", by charter dated to [1047/50]. According to William of Malmsbury, he was deprived of his archbishopric by his nephew Duke Guillaume as "he gave too much attention to hunting and hawking, and consumed the treasures of the church in a splendid mode of living" or alternatively that he wished to annul Duke Guillaume's marriage for consanguinity. Guillaume of Jumièges records that Duke Guillaume banished “Malgerius archipræsul Rotomagensis” to “insula...Ghernervia” and appointed “Maurilio Fiscannensi monacho” in his place. Orderic Vitalis says that he was deposed by Duke Guillaume for having aided the rebellion of his brother Guillaume. Archbishop Mauger had one illegitimate child by an unknown mistress.
