Eremburga of Mortain

Eremburga of Mortain (Eremburge de Mortain)[1] was the second wife of Count Roger I of Sicily and thus the second Sicilian countess.[2][3] She is very obscure and details of her life are almost unknown to us today.

Her father was either William, Count of Mortain[4] or Robert d'Eu, and if he was Eremburga's father, then her mother was called Beatrix.

Roger married Eremburga in 1077 and she bore him several daughters and one son. Sources about her children gives many contradictory information.

Eremburga's children were:

Son of Flandina was Count Simon of Policastro [it].

It is possible that Felicia of Sicily, mother of Stephen II of Hungary, was Eremburga's daughter,[7] and Geoffrey, Count of Ragusa was maybe Eremburga's son. Another possible Eremburga's child was Princess Muriel.

According to Goffredo Malaterra, Eremburga died in 1089.
