William, Earl of Aumale
William le Gros (died 20 August 1179) was the Count of Aumale (Earl of Albemarle), Earl of York, and Lord of Holderness. He was the eldest son of Stephen, Count of Aumale, and his spouse, Hawise, daughter of Ralph de Mortimer of Wigmore.
William witnessed two charters of King Stephen in 1136, in which he is recorded as Willelmus de Albamarla, but is not placed among the earls.
He distinguished himself at the Battle of the Standard in 1138, and was made Earl of Yorkshire (apart from Richmondshire) as his reward. He was with Stephen in his defeat at Lincoln on 2 February 1141. He founded the Abbey of Meaux in 1150.
His Scarborough Castle was forfeited to King Henry II as a result of unauthorised construction during the Anarchy.
William married Cicely, Lady of Skipton, the daughter and co-heir of William Fitz-Duncan by his spouse Alice, Lady of Skipton, daughter of William Meschin, Lord of Copeland.
He was intombed within the Abbey of Thornton, Lincolnshire, which he had founded in 1139.
Dying without male issue, the Earl of York and Albemarle left a daughter and heiress, Hawise (died 11 March 1214), who succeeded her father in the County of Aumale and Lordship of Holderness. Hawise married thrice, firstly, on 14 January 1180, William de Mandeville, 3rd Earl of Essex, who thereby became Count of Aumale. He died without issue 14 January 1189, and she married secondly after 3 July 1190, the crusader William de Forz (d. 1195), who thereby became Count of Aumale, by whom she had her heir and successor.

Walt Disney's Story Of Robin Hood: Coronation And Crusade
In nearly every Robin Hood movie, the story is set during the reign of Richard I (1189-1199). Walt Disney’s ‘Story of Robin Hood’ is no different and the part of King Richard was played by British actor Patrick Barr, who later resurrected the role in the well loved TV series ‘The Adventures of Robin Hood’ four years later.

Confessions of a Ci-Devant: The House of Plantagenet: A Genealogy
In preparation for the next stage of this blog's Queens of England series, I'm posting a genealogy of the House of Plantagenet, structured around its kings - the two Henrys, two Richards, three Edwards and one deeply unfortunate John. Next week, I plan to post two articles - a review of Elena Maria Vidal's fantastic second novel, Madame Royale, a sequel to Trianon - followed by Chapter 5 of the Queens of England series, "How am I possible?": The Life of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of France and Queen of England.
