  • Notes  Married:
    • From European History: 1088-1228 by Elizabeth M. Sewell, p. 2-3:

      The interests of Maude were not those of her husband from any feeling of affection, for their marriage was an unhappy one. Maude despised Geoffrey's rank and his age. She was a grown woman, and an emporer's widow, when she married him; and he was a lad of sixteen. As time went on there was a sharp conflict of will between husband and wife, and their latter years were spent apart. [5]
