Remarks:

She was daughter and heiress of William Talvas de Belleme, lord of Belleme and Alencon; he was fifth son of William de Belleme. She was alleged to have poisoned her brother-in-law, Gilbert de Montgomery. She was murdered at Bures by Hugh Bunel, son of Robert de ÒJalgeio,Ó from whom she had taken the Òcastrum quod in rupe Jalgeii situm est.Ó Jalgeuim is possibly Ige, just south of Belleme. Orderic represents her as Òa poisoner and a monster of iniquity. . .her wickedness has become one of the established facts of history. . .a critical examination of his statements suggests that they must be received with reserve.Ó
