  • Name: Emma de Vitre
  • Sex: F
  • Birth: ABT 1190 1
  • Note: 1

    Alard IV of Castle-Gontier married, in May 1207, Emma, dau of Andre II de Vitre. M. A. Bertrand de made Broussillon, at the time of this marriage, various criticisms of the version of Pierre the Baud which gives for mother of Emma de Vitré a wife of Andre that it does not know, not named Guyen or Guyonne of Leon; in addition, it precisely recognizes that Eustachie de Raiz, mother of Andre III de Vitre, cannot be the mother of Emma, being married only in 1199, whereas the elder dau of Andre II had been already for a year, though young person still, hostage for the Constance duchess of Brittany, married in 1207 and, less than two years later, mother of Jacques of Castle-Gontier, since he was a minor still and under supervision in 1226. There is thus no reason to stop with the difficulties which the author of the House of Laval suggests, against the opinion of the Baud; one must admit that Guyonne of Leon was the first wife of Andre II de Vitre and the mother of Emma before 1196, probably about 1190. Mr. de Broussillon makes mention of a marriage, projected or carried out, of Andre de Vitre with Mathilde de Mayenne, dau of Geoffroy II of Mayenne, but which was broken for close relationship; it announces also another alliance contracted by the same lord de Vitre, widower of Eustachie de Raiz, with Luce Paynel, who survived him.
