Elisabeth de Vendome
Birth: c. 970
Death: c. 1000

French Aristocracy. Born the daughter of Bouchard de Vend˘me, Comte de Vend˘me and Elizabeth de Corbiel. She married Foulques III Comte d'Anjou, known as 'the Black' c. 990 and with him had one daughter, Adele, the future Comtesse de Vend˘me. According to the 'Annales de Saint-Aubin,' there was a report that she was burned by Foulques for adultery, a charge generally thought to be false. Alternate reports state she was executed for adultery and witchcraft by boiling, or that she died in a fire in Angers, most histories prefer the first possibility, though a fire burned the city of Angers within days of her reported death. (bio by: Iola)
