Note: [RCKarnes.ged] She was the daughter of Guillaume III Taillefer and Arsinde De Anjou Constance Taillefer d'Arles Daughter of a certain Count William, an intriguing and ambitious woman, who made life miserable for her husband. She was the third wife and queen of King Robert II of France. She was the daughter of Count Guilhem II of Provence and Adelais of Anjou, and the sister of Count Guilhem III of Provence. In 1003 she was married to King Robert, after his divorce from his second wife. The marriage was stormy; the family of Robert's second queen, Bertha, opposed her, and Constance was despised for importing her Proven�cal kinfolk. Robert's friend, Hugh of Beauvais, tried to convince the king to repudiate her in 1007. Constance's response was to have Beauvais murdered by the knights of her kinsman, Fulk Nerra. In 1010 Robert even went to Rome, accompanied by his former wife Bertha, to seek permission to divorce Constance and remarry Bertha. Constance encouraged her sons to revolt against their father, and then favored her younger son, Robert, over her elder son, Henri. During the famous trial of Herefast De Crepon (who was alleged to be involved with the Cathars) in 1022, the crowd outside the church in Orleans became so unruly that, according to Moore: "At the king's command, Queen Constance stood before the doors of the Church, to prevent the common people from killing them inside the Church, and they were expelled from the bosom of the Church. As they were being driven out, the queen struck out the eye of Stephen, who had once been her confessor, with the staff which she carried in her hand." The symbolism, or reality, of putting an eye out is used often in medieval accounts to show the ultimate sin of breaking of one's oath, whether it be heresy, or treason to ones lordship, or in this case both. Stephen's eye was put out by the hand of a Queen wielding a staff (royal scepters were usually tipped with a cross) thus symbolically providing justice for the treasoned lord on earth and in heaven. At Constance's urging, her eldest son Hugh Magnus was crowned co-king alongside his father in 1017. Hugh Magnus demanded his parents share power with him, and rebelled against his father in 1025. He died suddenly later that year, an exile and a fugitive. Robert and Constance quarelled over which of their surviving sons should inherit the throne; Robert favored their second son Henri, while Constance favored their third son, Robert. Despite his mother's protests, Henry was crowned in 1027. Fulbert, Bishop of Chartres, wrote a letter claiming that he was "frightened away" from the consecration of Henry "by the savagery of his mother, who is quite trustworthy when she promises evil." Constance encouraged her sons to rebel, and Henri and Robert began attacking and pillaging the towns and castles belonging to their father. Robert attacked Burgundy, the duchy he had been promised but had never received, and Henry seized Dreux. At last King Robert agreed to their demands and peace was made which lasted until the king's death. King Robert died in 1031, and soon Constance was at odds with both her elder son, Henri, and her younger son Robert. Constance seized her dower lands and refused to surrender them. Henri fled to Normandy, where he received aid, weapons, and soldiers from his brother Robert. He returned to besiege his mother at Poissy, but Constance escaped to Pontoise. She only surrendered when Henri began the siege of Puiset and swore to slaughter all the inhabitants. Constance died in 1034, and was buried beside her husband Robert at Saint-Denis Basilica.

[Hardin Clay Roots.ged] Toulouse, France Meulan, France ...x RESEARCH NOTES: variously styled of Aries and of Toulouse [Ref: Weis AR7 #101] For Constantia, I have already treated of her family in Nos Ancetres de l'Antiquite. To sum up : The name Constantia does not appear in comital aristocracy before this woman, a countess of Arles, in Provence. It is so very suggestive that at the time of her birth, the chief of the regnant family in Provence was named Charles Constantine. Moreover, the granddaughter of this Constantia, the queen Constantia, have attested relationship with kindred of Charles Constantine. The conclusion that Constantia was the daughter (or sister) of Constantine was made independently by M. Chaume, J. Berge and J.-P. Poly. Charles Constantine is the son of an emperor, and was named after the first occidental (frankish) emperor, Charlemagne, and the first oriental (Byzantine) emperor, Constantine the Great. He claimed evidently descent from both frankish and byzantine imperial ancestry. Precisely, we know that sometime before 911, the byzantine emperor Leon VI had given his only daughter to a frankish prince, cousin of Bertha of Tuscia and misfortuned. That is far good for the frankish emperor Louis III, second cousin of Bertha, blinked in 905, father of Charles Constantine. Fine analysis has showed that chronology fit very well. So, on both cases, no certitude, but good presomptions. [Ref: Christian Settipani SGM 12/6/1998-111707] "OF ARLES & TOULOUSE" .
