  • Death: 1031
  • Note:

    According to Robert of Torigni, not long after his first wife Emma's death (without issue), Duke Richard went out hunting and stopped at the house of a local forester. He became enamoured of the forester's wife, Seinfreda, but she being a virtuous woman, suggested he court her unmarried sister, Gunnor, instead. Gunnor became his mistress, and her family rose to prominence. Her brother, Herefast de Crepon, may have been involved in a controversial heresy trial. Gunnor was, like Richard, of Norse descent, being a Dane by blood. Richard finally married her to legitimize their children:
    * Richard II "the Good", Duke of Normandy (966)
    * Robert, Archbishop of Rouen, Count of Evreux, died 1037.
    * Mauger, Earl of Corbeil, died after 1033; his alleged grandson (or perhaps great-grandson) was Robert Fitzhamon, an important Anglo-Norman baron.
    * Robert Danus, died between 985 and 989
    * Emma of Normandy (c.985-1052) wife of two kings of England.
    * Maud of Normandy, wife of Odo II of Blois, Count of Blois, Champagne and Chartres

    * Beatrice of Normandy, Abbess of Montvilliers d.1034 m. Ebles of Turenne (d.1030 (divorced)
