Robert FitzEdith, Lord of Okehampton (1093–1172) was an illegitimate son of Henry I of England and Edith Forne, who was one of Henry's many mistresses. Compared to his illegitimate siblings and half-siblings, much is known about him. Robert married Matilda d'Avranches, heiress of the feudal barony of Okehampton, Devon, and widow of William de Courcy[1]—and together had one daughter, Mary, who married Renaud, Sire of Courtenay (son of Miles, Sire of Courtenay and Ermengarde of Nevers). Robert died of natural causes.
