Facts and Events
Simon I de Montfort (c. 1025–1087) was a French nobleman. He was born in Montfort l'Amaury, Duchy of Normandy (now in Ile de France), Kingdom of France. At his death he was buried about away in Epernon, Duchy of Normandy (now in Eure-et-Loir department), because it was the site of the fortress he was instrumental in constructing. He was the son of Amaury I de Montfort (c. 1000–1031) and Bertrade de Gometz.
