Milo I of Montlhéry

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Milo I the Great (died 1102) was lord of Montlhéry from 1095 until his death. He was the son of Guy I of Montlhéry and Hodierna of Gometz.[1]

The identity of his first wife is unknown. His second wife was Lithuise de Blois, Vicomtesse de Troyes, daughter of William Busac, Count of Soissons (c. 1084–1118).[2]

Milo and Lithuise had at least nine children:

Milo joined the Lombard contingent during the second wave of the First Crusade around 1100 together with his brother Guy II. He returned from the crusade "broken by the stress" and "devoid of all bodily strength".[7]
