The PEDIGREE of
Fulk (Foulques) III `the Black' (Count) d' ANJOU

     `Nerra'; (Murderer)

    Note: Fulk Nerra was notoriously evil, slaying close relatives (including his wife, found sleeping with a shepherd boy), and terrorizing his subjects. He had the King of France's friend Hugh de Beauvais killed in front of the King, to humiliate the King for mistreating his wife (Fulk's cousin). He also indulged in strange acts of penance, once being dragged and whipped through the streets of Jerusalem, begging for God's forgiveness.
