Disputed Relationships

Charles Cawley and Stewart Baldwin both argue that placing Fredesende as a child of Richard I (Europäische Stammtafeln 2:29) or Richard II (Stasser and de Vajay) is a mistake.

  1. TANCRED de Hauteville, in Cawley, Charles. Medieval Lands: A prosopography of medieval European noble and royal families.

    "A myth, not based on any evidence, emerged in the 16th century to the effect that both wives of Tancred de Hauteville were daughters of Richard I Duke of Normandy."

  2.   Richard II, in Baldwin, Stewart, and Todd Farmerie. The Henry Project (King Henry II ): Ancestors of King Henry II.

    Baldwin gives reasons for not putting her as a daughter of Richard I or Richard II.
