Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

No32 Richard I, 'the Fearless', Count of Rouen, Duke of Normandy b 28.08.933/4 in Fécamp, d 20.11.996 in Fécamp He was still a boy when his father died in 942 he was powerless to stop Louis IV of France when he seized Normandy.. His mother was a Breton concubine captured in war and bound to William by a Danish marriage. After William died, Sprota became the wife of Esperleng, a wealthy miller; Rodulf of Ivry was their son and Richard's half-brother. Louis kept him in confinement in his youth at Lâon, but he escaped with the assistance of Osmond de Centville, Bernard de Senlis who had been a companion of Rollo of Normandy, Ivo de Bellèsme, and Bernard the Dane ancestor of families of Harcourt and Beaumont. In 968, Richard agreed to "commend" himself to Hugh, Count of Paris. He then allied himself with the Norman and Viking leaders, drove Louis out of Rouen, and took back Normandy by 947. He later quarrelled with Ethelred II of England regarding Viking invasions of England because Normandy had been buying up much of the stolen booty. Richard was bilingual, having been well educated at Bayeux. He was more partial to his Danish subjects than to the French. During his reign, Normandy became completely Gallicized and Christianized. He introduced the feudal system and Normandy became one of the most thoroughly feudalized states on the continent. He carried out a major reorganization of the Norman military system, based on heavy cavalry. He also became guardian of the young Hugh, Count of Paris, on the elder Hugh's death in 956.He married 1st 960 Emma of France, daughter of Hugh "The Great" of France, and Hedwiga de Sachsen. They were betrothed when both were very young. She died 19 Mar 968, with no issue.
m1 c 962 Gunnor de Crepon d 1031, sister of Herfastus According to Robert of Torigni, not long after Emma's death, 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.

BE1883 D'Evereux of Salisbury starts with Walter of Rosmar, son of the following William whose identification as a son of Robert d'Evreux is reported by some web sites eg 'Mathematical' but is thought to be probably fictitious.
De32 William d'Evereux d 1067
De31 Walter 'le Ewrus' d'Evereux, Count of Rosmar b c1033
m Philippa
BE1883 D'Evereux of Salisbury reports that this Walter had two sons: Walter, his successor as Count of Rosmar, and Edward 'of Salisbury', Sheriff of Wiltshire, whose grandson Patrick was created Earl of Salisbury. However, TCP Salisbury reports that this Walter the elder was "a fictitious person" and reports also that the parentage of Edward the Sheriff is unknown. The facts that the Conqueror tended to put kin in power in England and that the d'Evereux family were close neighbors of the de Bohuns in Normandy do speak for the likelyhood of such a descent.This Edward would have been a third cousin of the Conqueror and hence worthy of becoming Sheriff.

No31 et al. Godfrey, Count of Brionne and Eu b about 970 d c996
Some sources identify Godfrey's wife as Heloise of Guisnes but this appears to be because she was mother of Gilbert Crispin of Bec with whom Godfrey's son is often confused. [Brionne, in Normandy, is often confused with Brienne which is near Troyes in Aube.]
No30=Cl29=31 Gilbert, Count de Brionne b c 995, d c1040
Many sources suggest that Gilbert's wife was Gunnora d'Aunou but this appears to be because he is often confused with Gilbert Crispin de Bec, her actual husband. Other sources identify his wife as Gunnora de Crepon but this is thought unlikely.

No29=28 Baldwin FitzGilbert, Sn de Meules and Sap, lord of Okehampton d 1090
BE1883 Courtenay of Devon shows Baldwin as father of Richard de Redvers and Robert and Emma mentioned below. TCP Devon names his wife as Emma or Auberee and reports that she was related to King William I "first cousin, or niece". BE1883 identifies Baldwin's wife as Albreda d'Avranche which would make her related through her mother's mother who was mother of the King. We therefore accept the identity given by BE1883. TCP Devon shows their issue as follows:
