• Background Information. 141
Robert the King's Son, styled also de Caen. He attested charters regularly as Robert "filius, Regis"; but he is twice styled Robert de Caen (de Cadomo) by Orderic (ed. Le Prevost), vol. v, pp. 121, 122. The statement in the Dictionary of Biography that Robert was born at Caen, citing Orderic, seems to be a deduction from these passages. That he was "known ... as Robert 'de Caen' from his birthplace" is also amassed by Round, Family Origins, p. 214. The name and identity of whose mother are uncertain. He was born, probably circa 1090; cr. in 1122 (June-Sep.) Earl of Gloucester and he married Maud (named also Mabel and Sibyl) daughter and heir of Robert Fitz Hamon, Lord of Glamorgan, by Sibyl, daughter of Roger (de Montgomery), 1st Earl of Shrewsbury. He died 31 Oct 1147 at Bristol and was buried at the Priory of St. James, Bristol.
