ADELIZA de LOUVAIN
(m.1. King Henry I)d. 25 Sept. 1176The younger William was an important member of Henry I of England's household. After Henry's death hemarried the widow Queen consort Adeliza in 1138, and became Lord of Arundel in her right.He was loyal to Stephen of England, who made him first Earl of Lincoln and then Earl of Arundel (more precisely, Earl of Sussex). Although her husband was a staunch supporter of Stephen during the Anglo- Norman civil war, Adeliza's own personal inclination may have been toward the cause of her stepdaughter Empress Matilda. When the Empress sailed for England in 1139, it was to her stepmother that she appealedfor shelter, and she landed near Arundel and was received as a guest of the former Queen.In 1143 as Earl of Lincoln he made two charters confirming a donation of land around Arundel in Sussex tothe abbey of Affligem in Brabant (representing his wife Adeliza of Louvain), with William's brother Olivier present.He fought loyally for King Stephen, but in 1153 helped arrange the truce between Stephen and HenryPlantagenet, known as the Treaty of Wallingford, which brought an end to The Anarchy. When the latter ascended the throne as Henry II, he confirmed William's Earldom and gave him direct possession of Arundel Castle (instead of the possession in right of his wife he had previously had). She had died in 1151.He remained loyal to the king during the 1173 revolt of Henry the Young King, and helped defeat therebellion.Adeliza married Henry I of England on 2 February 1121, when she is thought to have been somewhere between fifteen and eighteen years of age, whilst Henry was fifty-three. It is believed that Henry's onlyreason for marrying again was his desire for a male heir. Despite holding the record for the largest number of illegitimate children of any British monarch, Henry had only one legitimate male heir, William Adelin,who had predeceased his father on 25 November 1120 in the White Ship disaster. Adeliza was reputedly

quite pretty and her father was Duke of Lower Lotharingia. These were the likely reasons she was chosen.However, no children were born during the almost fifteen years of the marriage.Adeliza, unlike the other Anglo-Norman queens, played little part in the public life of the realm during her tenure as queen consort. Whether this is because of personal inclination, or because Henry preferred tokeep her nearby in hopes of her conceiving, is unknown and probably unknowable. She did, however, leavea mark as a patron of literature and several works, including a bestiary by Philip de Thaon, were dedicatedto her. She is said to have commissioned a verse biography of King Henry; if she did it is no longer extant.When Henry died on 1 December 1135, Adeliza retired for a while to the monastery of Wilton, near Salisbury. She was present at the dedication of Henry's tomb at Reading Abbey on the first anniversary of his death.Adeliza spent her final years in the abbey of Affligem (landgraviat of Brabant), which she richly rewardedwith landed estates (three English villages called Ideswordam, Westmerendonam and Aldeswurda, probably near to Arundel). She died in the abbey and was buried in the abbey church next to her father,duke Godfrey I of Leuven (d.1139). The abbey necrology situates her tombstone next to the clockwork. An18th century floor plan of the church shows her tombstone located halfway up the left nave. Her grave wasdemolished however during the French Revolution (abt. 1798). Her bones had been found and she wasreburied in the cloister of the re-erected Affligem abbey.
