      w. of Henry I, King of England
      http://www.tudorplace.com.ar/DAUBENEY.htm#William Strong Hand AUBIGNY ( E. Arundel)

      Adeliza de Louvain was born circa 1104 in «u»The Netherlands «/u». She married «u»Henry I Beauclerc, King of England «/u», son of «u»William I , (The Conqueror) King of England «/u» and «u»Matilda of Flanders «/u», on 29 September 1121 in «u»Windsor Castle, England «/u». She died in 1151; she was buried at Afflighem, Brabant, on 23 April 1151. The Castle and Honour of Arundel had been settled on her as her dowry by King Henry I of England, her first husband. He had married her after the disaster of "The White Ship" when the king's only legitimate son was drowned, leaving him with his only legitimate daughter, the Empress Matilda. Sadly, during the fourteen years till the king's death, no children were born. She remained a widow for about three years and then, in 1138, married William d'Aubigny, or de Albini, who then first became known as Earl of Lincoln, then Earl of Chichester, only much later as Earl of Arundel. Several children were born from this marriage. The Queen Dowager retired in 1150 to a nunnery at Afflighem, in South Brabant, where she died and was buried on 23 April 1151, aged about forty-eight.«b»Citations«/b»

      Well I found another split this time with Louis I and his older brother Pe pin I of Italy, King of Italy. These are the two oldest sons of Charlemag ne Emperor of the West, King of Frank and his wife Hildegarde of Vinzga u. Charlemagne had his children in jobs all over Europe it seems.

      Any way our lines separate with these two and join again with William D'Au bigny, 2nd Earl Arundel.

      William's father, William "Strong Hand" Aubigny, 1st Earl Arundel, is a de scendant of Pepin I of Italy, King of Italy and his wife Bertha of Toulous e.
