Emma de Dinan

  • Born: Abt 1136
  • Marriage: Robert de Vitré

bullet  General Notes:



~Weis' Ancestral Roots. . ., 108:27, Robert I de Vitre was married to Emma de Dinan, daughter of Alan de Dinan. Alan de Dinan, died 1126, and was the lord of Dinan and Becherel, in Brittany, and the son of Geoffrey Dinan, who died in 1126. 160

~Gen-Medeival discussion, Moriarty's claim that Count Stephen's daughter actually married Alan de Dinan, rather than his brother, Oliver de Dinan. This claim is supported by Le Baud, Chroniques de Vitré, page 27. If correct, it would explain why Alan de Dinan's grandson, Robert de Vitré, Precentor of Paris, was called "kinsman" by Duke Arthur of Brittany, a known descendant of Count Stephen. 193

~Annals and Antiquities of Lacok Abbey, Pedigree V. pg. 264, footnote, daughter of Olivier Vicomte de Dinan, by Agnorie, sister to Eudo Comte de Penthievre, the husband of Bertha Duchess of Britany; Eudo and Agorie were grandchildren of Hongue, sister of Hoel, the husband of the Duchess Avoise. 759

Contemporary charter evidence exists which proves that Emme, wife of Robert de Vitré, was the sister of Roland de Dinan (died c. 1185), seigneur of Dinan. There is also contemporary charter evidence which proves that Roland de Dinan was the son and heir of Alan de Dinan (died 1148). This Alan de Dinan (died 1148) was the brother of Oliver de Dinan (died 1150), the husband of Agnorie, alleged daughter of Count Stephen of Brittany.

We're currently discussing Moriarty's claim that Count Stephen's daughter actually married Alan de Dinan, rather than his brother, Oliver de Dinan. This claim is supported by Le Baud, Chroniques de Vitré, page 27. If correct, it would explain why Alan de Dinan's grandson, Robert de Vitré, Precentor of Paris, was called "kinsman" by Duke Arthur of Brittany, a known descendant of Count Stephen.

Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah.


Emma married Robert de Vitré, son of André I, seigneur de Vitré and Agnes de Mortaigne. (Robert de Vitré was born in Anjou, France.)
