Description

The famous document that demanded that all Englishmen be brought before a jury of their peers when charged with a crime, instead of the Monarch killing a nobleman and stealing his property. Maud and William are reputed to have had 16 children. [9] The best documented of these are listed below. Maud de St. Valéry was also known as the Lady of la Haie and to the Welsh as Moll Walbee. She is said, by the local people who saw her as a supernatural character, to have built Hay Castle single handed in one night, carrying the stones in her apron at Hay-on-Wye, Welsh Marches, England. There is some suggestion that William and Matilda realised she had gone too far, and tried to placate John with gifts. But it was too late.

She had many siblings and half-siblings, including Thomas de St. Valéry (died 1219), who was a son of Bernard by his second wife Eleanor de Domnart. Thomas married Adele de Ponthieu, by whom he had a daughter, Annora, who in her turn married Robert III, Count of Dreux, by whom she had issue. Thomas fought on the French side, at the Battle of Bouvines on 27 July 1214. [6] A third son, Reginald, married, as his 2nd wife, Gwladus Ddu, daughter of Llewelyn the Great, Prince of Wales. Reginald’s son, William, by his 1st wife married Eva Marshal, daughter of the great knight, William Marshal. It was this William de Braose who was ignominiously hanged by Llewelyn the Great, after being found in the bedchamber of Llewelyn’s wife Joan, the Lady of Wales and natural daughter of King John. William had been at the Welsh court to arrange the marriage of his daughter, Isabel, to Llewelyn and Joan’s son, David. Interestingly, the marriage still went ahead, although it was to be childless.Mother of Anthony de Braose; Bertha De Braose; William de Braose, IV; Giles de Braose, Bishop of Hereford; Matilda "Maud" de Braose and 8 others ; Laurette de Braose; Roger de Braose; John Knill de Braose, II; Annora de Braose; Flandrina de Braose; Philip de Braose; Margaret de Braose, Lady of Trim and Reginald de Braose, 9th Baron Abergavenny « less In contemporary records, she was described as beautiful, very wise, doughty, and vigorous.

why is a strong modern woman getting raped past and present by the men in her life and then just getting on with these guys as if nothing much really happened, I understood why they got away with this in the past.. but in present day? it is just to hard to believe. Maybe this is the problem with 80's romance. Maud and William are reputed to have had 16 children.[6] The best documented of these are listed below. Maud's daughter Margaret de Lacy founded a religious house, the Hospital of St. John, in Aconbury, Herefordshire in her memory. [2] On 10 October 1216, eight days before his death, King John conceded three carucates of land in the royal forest of Aconbury to Margaret for the construction of the religious house. He sent the instructions to her husband Walter de Lacy, who held the post of Sheriff of Hereford, by letters patent. [17] Legends [ edit ] This book is about Jo Clifford, a C20th journalist, who is regressed under hypnosis and finds she has lived before in the C12th, as Matilda, Lady of Hay. Matilda died a terrible death at the hands of King John. She also suffered the abuse of her husband William de Braose and had an illicit love affair with a knight, Richard de Clare.Extract E:Histoire des Ducs de Normandie et des Rois d' Angleterre,ed. Francique Michel (Paris 1840) MATILDA [Joan] de Clare ([1185/90]-). The primary source which confirms her first marriage has not yet been identified. Her birth date range is estimated from her having had at least one child by her first marriage and at least three by her second. The Chronicle of the Princes of Wales records that "Rhys the Hoarse married the daughter of the earl of Clare" in 1219[725].

Maud de Braose (1155-1210) was the wife of William de Braose, 7th Baron Abergavenny, 4th Lord Bramber, a powerful Marcher baron and court favourite of King John of England. She would later incur the wrath and emnity of the King. She is also known in history as Matilda de Braose, Moll Wallbee, and Lady of La Haie Maud de Braose (died 29 December 1210), married Gruffydd ap Rhys II, by whom she had two sons, Rhys and Owain. [10] Maud de Braose, Lady of Bramber (c. 1155 – 1210) was an English noble, the spouse of William de Braose, 4th Lord of Bramber, a powerful marcher baron and court favourite of King John of England. She would later incur the wrath and enmity of the king, who had her starved to death in the dungeon of Corfe Castle along with her eldest son. [1] In contemporary records, she was described as beautiful, very wise, doughty, and vigorous. She kept up the war against the Welsh and conquered much from them. [2] She was born Maud de St. Valery ( Maud de Saint-Valéry) in France in about 1155, the child of Bernard de St. Valéry [3] [4] of Hinton Waldrist in Berkshire (now Oxfordshire) [5] and his first wife, Matilda. Her paternal grandfather was Reginald de St. Valéry (died c.1162).Maud de Braose features in many Welsh folklore myths and legends. There is one legend which says that Maud built the castle of Hay-on-Wye single handed in one night, carrying the stones in her apron.[12] She was also said to have been extremely tall and often donned armour while leading troops into battle.[13] It was following Arthur’s murder that things started to go wrong for the Lord and Lady of Bramber. John became increasingly suspicious of de Braose’s loyalty and turned against him. This could have been for several reasons, not least being de Braose’s knowledge of Arthur’s fate.
