    It is thought possible - not quite the same as believed to be "correct" - that Tancred's wives Muriella and Fressendis were illegitimate daughters of Richard II (the Good) of Normandy. They were probably related in some way, and for all I know it may be that at least Muriella was old enough to have been a daughter of Richard I (the Fearless) - but Fressendis seems to have belonged more certainly to a younger generation. (She is credited with at least nine children born up to ca 1045/50, making it unlikely that her father died in 996.)

    A good source for this part of the Hauteville family is Huguette Taviani-Carozzi's *La terreur du monde: Robert Guiscard at la conquête normande en Italie, mythe et histoire* (Paris, 1996).
