    Notes 
    • "Fulk V, Count of Anjou from 1109, was by his first wife, Aremburga, heiress of Maine, the father of Count Geoffrey the Fair. Fulk 'led an honorable life, ruling his territory wisely.' He was 'an upright and virtuous man of orthodox faith [who] achieved a glorious and excellent reputation that was second to none.' According to William of Tyre, Fulk was 'a ruddy man, faithful and gentle, affable and kind, a powerful prince, and very successful ruling his people; an experienced warrior full of patience and wisdom in military affairs.'"
