  • Birth*: Walter de Beauchamp was born circa 1075 in England.1
  • Marriage*: He married Emeline d'Abetot circa 1100 in England.1
  • Death*: Walter de Beauchamp died between 1130 and 1133 in England.1
  • Biography*: Walter de Beauchamp (sometimes Walter I of Beauchamp, Walter of Beauchamp, Walter I de Beauchamp, or Walter de Bellocampo; died between 1130 and 1133) was a medieval nobleman and Sheriff of Worcestershire. Married to the daughter of one of his predecessors as sheriff. Nothing is known for sure of his background before he appears as a witness to royal charters between 1108 and 1111. Beauchamp also inherited offices in the royal household from his father-in-law, and also appears to have been a royal forester. He and another nobleman divided some of the lands of his father-in-law, but disagreements about the division lasted until the 12th century between the two families. He died between 1130 and 1133, and one of his descendants later became Earl of Warwick.

    Background and family
    Beauchamp is sometimes known as Walter de Beauchamp of Elmley, to distinguish him from the members of the Beauchamp family of Bedford. He married the daughter of Urse d'Abetot, who is usually named Emeline, although her name is not given in contemporary records. Urse d'Abetot was the Sheriff of Worcestershire from around 1069 to around 1108. Beauchamp may have been a tenant of his father-in-law prior to his marriage. Nothing is known for sure of Beauchamp's background, and he first witnessed a royal charter sometime between 1108 and 1111. Some documents suggest that his father may have been named Peveral de Beauchamp and that he had a brother named William Peveral de Beauchamp, but the only identifiable Peveral is younger than Walter.

    Sheriff
    In the 1110s, Beauchamp became Sheriff of Worcestershire, holding the office until 1130. Some sources state he received the office in 1114, and others place the acquisition of the office between December 1113 and April 1116. Beauchamp inherited most of d'Abetot's lands and the hereditary office of Sheriff of Worcestershire when Roger d'Abetot, Urse's son, forfeited his lands and offices after being exiled by Henry I for murder. King Henry I of England granted Beauchamp the right to hunt wolves and foxes in the royal forests of Worcestershire. Along with the right to hunt in the royal forests came a grant of the right to keep pheasants on his own lands, and the right to fine anyone hunting the birds without his permission.

    Beauchamp probably held the office of royal forester for Worcestershire as well as sheriff. The evidence for this is that after Beauchamp's death, his son William was granted the revenues from the royal forests of Worcestershire at the same rate as his father had held them; this strongly implies that the elder held the office of forester. The historian Judith Green felt that Walter de Beauchamp might possibly have held the office of constable, which had been held by his father-in-law, although the historian C. Warren Hollister felt that Beauchamp definitely did hold the office. He also a held the royal office of dispenser, an office which later became known as a butler. He acquired this because his wife inherited the office from her father. The date when he acquired the office is unknown. While a member of the royal household, Beauchamp witnessed a number of royal charters, mainly when the king was in England.

    Beauchamp and the Bishop of Worcester had a dispute over the lands that Beauchamp inherited from d'Abetot. The dispute caused the two sides to agree to the creation of the Worcester Survey, a land survey undertaken in Worcestershire sometime between 1108 and 1118 that shows changes in land ownership after the Domesday Book.

    D'Abetot's widow Adeliza granted her dower lands in the county of Worcestershire to Beauchamp, which was confirmed by King Henry sometime between 1123 and 1129, although the document cannot be dated more precisely than that. In 1130, at Michaelmas, Henry allowed Beauchamp to not pay geld on his lands in Berkshire, and he is mentioned in the 1130 Pipe Roll as still living.

    Death and legacy
    Sometime between 1130 and 1133, Beauchamp died and his son William de Beauchamp took over his lands. Stephen de Beauchamp, a tenant on the Beauchamp lands and a friend of Robert of Gloucester, was likely a younger son of Walter's. The historian David Crouch says that another son was Walter, who is recorded as William's brother and was a follower of Waleran, Count of Meulan. Beauchamp was the ancestor of the Beauchamp family of Elmley in Worcestershire, a member of which, William de Beauchamp, became Earl of Warwick.

    The lands and offices of Urse's brother Robert were divided between Beauchamp and Robert Marmion. Marmion and Beauchamp disagreed about the division of the lands, leading to a long dispute between the two families that was only settled in the late 12th century. Some sources state that another daughter of Urse d'Abetot married Robert Marmion, which was the reason for the division of the lands and offices between the two men. Other sources are less sure, accepting this as one possibility among several for the divided inheritance between the Marmion and Beauchamp families. Because there are no contemporary sources showing that Urse had any children besides his son and the daughter who married Beauchamp, another possibility is that Urse's brother Robert had a daughter who married Marmion, and that Urse managed to acquire part of her inheritance on the strength of his friendship with King William II of England.1

  • Birth*: Mór Ní Tuathail Queen-consort of Leinster was born circa 1114 in Castledermot, Kildare, Ireland*.1
  • Marriage*: She married Dermot MacMorrough King of Leinster, son of Donnchad mac Murchada King of Leinster, circa 1140 in Loch Gamon, Wexford, Ireland*.1
  • Death*: Mór Ní Tuathail Queen-consort of Leinster died in 1191 in Ireland*.1
  • Biography*: Mór Ní Thuathail (anglicised as Mor O'Toole) (c. 1114–1191) was a Queen-consort of Leinster as the principal first wife of King Diarmait Mac Murchada. Under Brehon Law, Irish men were allowed more than one wife. King Dermot's second wife was Sadhbh Ní Fhaolain.

    Mór was the mother of Aoife of Leinster, the wife of Richard de Clare, Earl of Pembroke, known to history as Strongbow.

    Family
    Mór was born in Castledermot, Kildare, Ireland in about 1114, the daughter of Muirchertach Ua Tuathail, King of the Uí Muirdeaigh, and Cacht Ní Morda.

    Her paternal grandparents were Gilla Comgaill Ua Toole and Sadbh Ní Domnail and her maternal grandparents were Loigsig Ua Morda, King of Laois and Gormlaith Ní Caellaide.
    One of Mor's four half-brothers was St. Lorcán Ua Tuathail, Archbishop of Dublin, who was canonised in 1225 by Pope Honorius III.

    Marriage and issue
    Sometime about 1140 in Loch Garman, County Wexford, Mór was married to King Diarmait Mac Murchada of Leinster as his principal first wife, making her Queen-consort of Leinster. His second wife was Sadhbh Ní Fhaolain. Under Brehon Law, Irish men were permitted more than one wife. In 1152, he abducted Derbforgaill Ní Mhaol Seachlainn, the wife of the King of Breifne, Tighearnán Ua Ruairc (Irish: Tighearnán Ua Ruairc).

    Together Dermot and Mór had about three children:
    Conchobhar Mac Murchada (died 1167)
    Aoife MacMurrough (1145–1188), married 29 August 1170, Richard de Clare, 2nd Earl of Pembroke, known to history as Strongbow, by whom she had two children, including Isabel de Clare, 4th Countess of Pembroke, who became the heiress to her father's titles and estates.
    Órlaith of Leinster, married Domnall Mór Ua Briain, King of Thomond, by whom she had issue.

    In 1167, Mór's son Conchobhar was killed by Ruaidrí Ua Conchobair, High King of Ireland, after having been taken hostage while Diarmait waged war against Ruaidrí with the aim of overthrowing him in order to take his place as the High King.

    Queen Mór died in 1191, three years after her eldest daughter, Aoife. Her husband predeceased her on 1 May 1171 in Ferns, shortly after the Cambro-Norman invasion of Ireland led by their son-in-law, Strongbow.1

    Murchadh, son of Diarmaid, son of Mael-na-mbo, lord of the foreigners and of Leinster, under his father, died at Ath-cliath, precisely on Sunday, the festival of Mary, in winter. It was in lamentation of him the poet composed these quatrains:
    There is grief for a chief king at Ath Cliath,
    Which will not be exceeded till the terrible Judgment Day;
    Empty is the fortress without the descendant of Duach,
    Quickly was the vigour of its heroes cut down.
    Sorrowful every party in the fortress
    For their chief, against whom no army prevailed;
    Since the body of the king was hidden from all,
    Every evil has showered ever constant.
    For Murchadh, son of Diarmaid the impetuous,
    Many a fervent prayer is offered;
    In sorrow for the death of the chief is every host
    That was wont to defeat in the battle,
    Great the sorrow that he was not everlasting;
    Pity that death hath attacked him.
    Too early it was that he removed from him his complexion,
    That he removed one like him from his body.
    Liberal of wealth was the grandson of Mael-na-mbo;
    He bestowed horses, and he distributed cows,
    For the sake of his going to God.
    Who is it to whom 'tis best to give fleeting wealth?4

  • Birth*: Diarmait mac Máel na mBó King of Leinster & High King of Ireland was born circa 1025 in Ireland*.1
  • Marriage*: He married Dearbforgail (?), daughter of Brian Boru (?) High King of Ireland, circa 1040 in Ireland*.3
  • Death*: Diarmait mac Máel na mBó King of Leinster & High King of Ireland died on 7 February 1072 in Ireland*.1
  • Biography*: Diarmait mac Máel na mBó (died 7 February 1072) was King of Leinster, as well as High King of Ireland (with opposition). He was one of the most important and significant kings in Ireland in the pre-Norman era. His influence extended beyond the island of Ireland into the Hebrides, the Isle of Man, Wales, and even into England.

    Background
    Diarmait belonged to the Uí Cheinnselaig, a kin group of south-east Leinster centred on Ferns. His father, Donnchad mac Diarmata, became known more commonly by the epithet Máel na mBó ("Baldy of the Cattle"), whence Diarmait's patronym. The last of Diarmait's ancestors to have been counted as king of all Leinster, Crimthann mac Énnai, died in the late 5th century; but Diarmait's more immediate forebears, most recently his great-grandfather Domnall mac Cellaig (died 974), had been counted among the kings of the Uí Cheinnselaig. Diarmait's mother was Aife, daughter of Gilla Pátraic mac Donnchada, king of Osraige. He had at least one sibling, a brother named Domnall whose son Donnchad mac Domnaill Remair later became king of Leinster.

    The Uí Cheinnselaig had been prominent in earlier times, but their power had been broken at the battle of Áth Senaig in 738. The rival Uí Dúnlainge, based in northern Leinster around Naas and Kildare, who also enjoyed the support of the powerful Clann Cholmáin kings of Mide, dominated Leinster until the time of Brian Bóruma. The decline of Clann Cholmáin, and the defeat inflicted on the Uí Dúnlainge, led by Máel Mórda mac Murchada, at the battle of Clontarf in 1014, changed the political landscape to favour the Uí Cheinnselaig once more.

    The return of the Vikings to Ireland in the early 10th century occasioned the development of new towns on the coasts. The towns, centres of trade and manufacture, would give significant political power to those who could control their wealth. Kings of Leinster found themselves in a particularly advantageous position to exploit this new wealth as three of the five principal towns lay in or near Leinster. In Leinster proper, in the south-eastern corner dominated by the Uí Cheinnselaig, lay Wexford. To the west of this, in the smaller kingdom of Osraige, which had been attached to Leinster since the late 10th century, was Waterford. Finally, the most important Viking town in Ireland, Dublin, lay at the north-eastern edge of Leinster. Compared to this, kings in the north and west of Ireland had easy access to no towns, while those in the south, in Munster, had access to two: Cork on the south coast and Limerick on the west coast.

    Biography
    He made an alliance with Niall mac Eochada, king of Ulaid, which helped to put pressure both from the north and south on the kingdoms of Mide, Brega and Dublin — ruled by the High King.

    In 1042 he was able to claim the title "King of Leinster" and install his son, Murchad, as King of Dublin. Thus ruler of two of the most powerful and wealthy towns on the island, he was able to make a bid for the High-Kingship. It was during a battle against the king of Mide, Conchobar Ua Maelsechalinn, that he was killed, near to Navan. County Meath, on 7 February 1072.

    The surviving sons of King Harold Godwinson of England escaped to Leinster after the Battle of Hastings in 1066 where they were hosted by Diarmait. In 1068 and 1069 Diarmait lent them the fleet of Dublin for their attempted invasions of England.

    He is also famous as the ancestor of Diarmait MacMurrough.

    Diarmait's Death in the Annals of the Four Masters

    "Diarmaid, son of Mael-na-mbo, King of Leinster, of the foreigners of Ath-cliath, and of Leath-Mogha-Nuadhat, was slain and beheaded in the battle of Odhbha, on Tuesday, the seventh of the Ides of February, the battle having been gained over him by Conchobhar O'Maeleachlainn, King of Meath. There were also slain many hundreds of the foreigners and Leinstermen, along with Diarmaid, in that battle. In it was killed Gillaphadraig O'Fearghaile, lord of the Fortuatha, &c. Of the death of Diarmaid was said:"

    Two, seven times ten above one thousand,
    From the birth of Christ is reckoned,
    To this year, in which Diarmaid,
    First man in Leinster, fell.
    Diarmaid, of the ruddy-coloured aspect,
    A king who maintained the standard of war,
    Whose death brought scarcity of peace,
    The loss of the heroes of Ladhrann, with their ships.
    Comely youths were cut down there,
    Together with the head of Claire and Cualann.
    It caused in the breeze an unpleasant noise,
    The loss of the King of Riada of great valour.
    Until at Muillenn-Chul was slain
    A brave chieftain of a strong fortress,
    Until the furious fire-brand fell by treachery,
    They found no hero who dared with him contend.
    It is a red wound through my firm heart;
    For the host from Caindruim it was not just
    To destroy our noble chief they had no right,
    It has quenched their spirit greatly,
    Diarmaid of the laughing teeth under violent sorrow;
    There is not on account of his death banquet or feast;
    There will not be peace, there will not be armistice.1

    Life
    Odo did not follow his father's aggressive policies towards France and proved a worthy ally of king Philip II of France in his wars against John Lackland and the Holy Roman Emperor Otto IV of Germany. He fought bravely against the latter in the Battle of Bouvines, where he lost, according to contemporary chroniclers, two horses beneath him. Odo was also an important figure in the Crusade against the Cathars. When Philip II refused to get involved, the Odo stepped forward with the support of the local bishops and his vassals and organized the campaign of 1209 against the Cathar strongholds. Before leaving on crusade against the Cathars, Odo pledged the castle of Ile-d'Ouche and the village of Crimolois to the Knights Templar to assist them in the defense of the Catholic faith.

  • Biography*: Alice (or Alix) de Vergy (1182–1252) was duchess consort of Burgundy as the second spouse of Odo III, Duke of Burgundy. She was the regent of Burgundy during the minority of her son 1218–28.

    Alice was the daughter of Hugh, Lord of Vergy, by Gillette de Trainel. In 1199, she married Odo III, Duke of Burgundy. Their children were:
    Joan (1200–1223), married Raoul II of Lusignan (died 1250), Seigneur d'Issoudun and Count of Eu.

    Beatrice (born 1216), married Humbert III of Thoire (died 1279)

    Biography
    The marriage was arranged in 1196 as a part of the peace between her father and Odo, who had been engaged in a long lasting conflict, and took place in 1199. As a dowry, she was granted several of her father's land, while Odo granted her father undisputed ownership of his land. At the death of Odo III in 1218, he was succeeded by his son with Alice, Hugh IV. As Hugh IV was five years old, Alice became the regent of Burgundy during his minority with the title "Ducissa mater ducis Bourgogne".

    As regent, Alice worked to secure the inheritance of her son, and received the vassals oath of loyalty in the place of her son. In 1225, she managed to prevent a conflict with Dauphine. She acquired Beaune and Chalon through purchase. In 1227, she signed an alliance with Champagne against Nevers.

    In 1228, her son was declared of legal majority, and Alice resigned her regency and left court and retired to her dower lands. In 1231, however, it is noted that she acted as the representative of her son in successfully solving the conflict between the Vicomte de Dijon and the abbey of Citeaux. She spent her long retirement as an appreciated benefactor of religious communities.1
