Enguerrand I ( 1042 – 1116) was the Lord of Coucy from 1086 [1] until his death in 1116.

Bishop Rorico of Amiens established canons at Saint-Acheul in 1085. The foundation charter records donations to Saint-Acheul by Count Enguerran of Boves and his vidame Eustache. It was issued in the first year of Enguerran's rule, and praises his restoration of law and order.

Enguerrand was a man of many scandals. With the help of the Bishop of Laon he divorced his first wife, Adèle de Marle, for adultery. When he married his next wife, Sibyl of Château-Porcien, she was still married to Godfrey I, Count of Namur and Lord of Lorraine,[1] who was absent and in a war. Enguerrand and Sybil's first husband became bitter enemies and continued to fight a private war.

Adèle's son Thomas de Marle hated his father and joined the enemies against him. Nevertheless, when in 1095 the First Crusade began, both he and his son joined in the adventure as part of the army of Emicho. Thomas succeeded Enguerrand upon his death, and became a notoriously disreputable lord in his own right.

    Enguerrand de Boves1 ou Enguerrand Ier (env. 1042 - 1116). Fils de Dreux ou Drogon de Boves. De son père, il hérite de la seigneurie de Boves, et en épousant en premières noces Ade de Marle, il acquiert les seigneuries de Marle, de Coucy et de La Fère.
    En 1085, il devient comte d'Amiens du chef de sa grand-mère. En 1105, l'abbaye de Saint-Fuscien au sud d'Amiens est dotée par Enguerrand de Boves de la seigneurie tout entière.
    Il devient possesseur en 1080 du château de Coucy, dont il donne le nom à la Maison formée par ses descendants.
