Familienstammbaum von Guy I de MONTFORT L'AMAURY (2024)

Guy de Montfort, killed at Varilhes on 31 January 1228, was lord of La Ferté-Alais and Bréthencourt, regent of the county of Sidon from 1205 to 1210 and lord of Castres from 1211 to 1228. He was the son of Simon (IV), Lord of Montfort and Amicie de Beaumont, Countess of Leceister. Guy de Montfort inherited the land of La Ferté-Alais (Essonne). He took part in the 3rd and 4th Crusades. Impressed by the valour of the two brothers, Amaury wished to attach them to his service and in 1204 authorised Guy's marriage to Helvis d'Ibelin, widow of Renaud de Grenier, Count of Sidon. Helvis was the sister of John of IBELIN, constable of the kingdom of Jerusalem and then lord of Beirut, and regent of the kingdom from 1205 to 1210 for his niece Mary of Montferrat. Guy then settled in the Holy Land, and managed the land of Sidon for his stepchildren. In 1210 his regency came to an end: on 1 October 1210 he was present at the coronation of John of Brina and Mary of Montferrat, Queen of Jerusalem and niece of his wife. He left the Holy Land to assist his brother in the Albigensian Crusade from 1212. In 1212, he laid siege to the castle of Montségur, but in vain. He then fought alongside his brother at the Battle of Muret (1213), the Siege of Beaucaire (1216) and the Siege of Toulouse (1218). He was wounded during a sortie by the besieged Toulouse, and it was while trying to rescue him that his brother Simon received the rock that would be fatal to him. Simon's death and the incompetence of his son Amaury caused the Occitan lords to regain their rights. He received from his brother all the lands that the Trencavels had formerly possessed from the left bank of the Tarn to the Agout, Castres being the principal town On June 16, 1224, at the consecration of the church of Joyenval, Guy gave an annuity of 100 sous on Beynes. The following July he had given 20 sous on Gometz to the Abbey of Porrois. He took part in the siege of Avignon in 1226 and then on 31 January 1229 put in front of the castle of Varilhes (Arièges).

Between 1163 and 1166 : Nacimiento Fuentes: GEDCOM import of November 15, 2019 - Gedcom File - File: LP to 15 11 2019.ged - --- : Note Guy de Montfort, killed at Varilhes on 31 January 1228, was lord of La Ferté-Alais and Bréthencourt, regent of the county of Sidon from 1205 to 1210 and lord of Castres from 1211 to 1228. He was the son of Simon (IV), Lord of Montfort and Amicie de Beaumont, Countess of Leicester.

Biography In 1188 he took part in the Third Crusade. Given the fact that he also engaged in the next, it is conceivable to think that he remained in the Holy Land when King Philip Augustus returned to France, and did not return until 1192, at the same time as Richard the Lionheart.

He was the younger brother of Simon IV de Montfort and joined him in the Fourth Crusade in 1202. Arriving in Zara, after disapproving of the capture of the city, they refused the bargain that Alexios Angelo proposed to the Crusaders, which consisted of paying for passage to the Holy Land in exchange for their help in restoring Isaac II Angel to the throne. They made their own way to the kingdom of Jerusalem, embarking at Barletta in Apulia. Arriving in Jaffa, they joined King Amaury II of Lusignan and took part in an expedition to Tiberias. Impressed by the valour of the two brothers, Amaury wished to attach them to his service and in 1204 authorized the marriage of Guy with Helvis d'Ibelin, widow of Renaud Grenier, Count of Sidon. With the announcement of the founding of the Latin Empire of Constantinople by the Crusaders, Amaury understood that the Crusader army would not arrive again, and negotiated a six-year truce with Sultan Al-Adel. Simon returned to Europe, while Guy remained and exercised the regency of the county of Sidon on behalf of his son-in-law Balian Grenier. Guy and Helvis had two children:

Philip († 1270), who succeeded him at Castres, then left in turn to cross paths and became lord of Tyre and Toron; Pernelle, nun at the Abbey of Saint-Antoine des Champs in Paris.

In 1210 his regency ended, Balian having probably come of age. Guy attended the coronation of Jean de Brienne on 1 October 1210, then returned to Europe and joined his brother to help him carry out the Albigensian Crusade. In 1212, he laid siege to the castle of Montségur, but in vain. He then fought alongside his brother at the Battle of Muret (1213), the Siege of Beaucaire (1216) and the Siege of Toulouse (1218). He was wounded during a sortie by the besieged Toulousains, and it was while trying to rescue him that his brother Simon received the rock that would prove fatal to him. Simon's death and the incompetence of his son Amaury caused the Occitan lords to regain their rights.

During this period, Guy de Montfort had remarried Briende de Beynes, widow of Lambert de Thury, Baron de Lombers. They had:

Alicie de Montfort, nun at Port-Royal in 1259; Agnes de Montfort, nun at Port-Royal in 1259; Guy II de Montfort (died 1254), Baron of Lombers, died on crusade.

In 1224, Amaury ceded his rights to Occitania to King Louis VIII the Lion, who then came to conquer it. Guy took part in the siege of Avignon, which lasted three months. The city surrendered after three months, but illness forced the royal army to retreat and the king died on the way back to Montpensier. Guy remained to fight in Occitania, and was killed shortly afterwards while besieging Varilhes, near Pamiers. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guy_de_Montfort-Castres Fuentes: GEDCOM import of November 15, 2019 - Gedcom File - File: LP to 15 11 2019.ged - 1204 : Matrimonio (con Helvise d'IBELIN) Fuentes: GEDCOM import of November 15, 2019 - Gedcom File - File: LP to 15 11 2019.ged 1224 : Matrimonio (con Briande Dite de Beynes ADHÉMAR de MONTEIL) Fuentes: GEDCOM import of November 15, 2019 - Gedcom File - File: LP to 15 11 2019.ged 28 de Febrero 1229 : Muerte - Varilhes, 09120, Ariège, Occitanie, FRANCE killed by an arrow at the siege of Varilhes near Pamiers Fuentes: GEDCOM import of November 15, 2019 - Gedcom File - File: LP to 15 11 2019.ged -
