BIOGRAPHY Sibylla was born about 1116, the daughter of Foulques V 'the Young', comte d'Anjou et Maine, and his first wife Eremburge, comtesse de Maine. In 1123 Sibylla married William Clito of Normandy, count of Flanders, son of Robert II Curthose, duke of Normandy, and Sibylla de Conversano. Sibylla brought the county of Maine to this marriage, which did not result in progeny and was annulled in 1124 on grounds of consanguinity. The annulment was made by Pope Honorius II upon a request from Henry I, king of England, William's uncle; Foulques opposed it and did not consent until Honorius excommunicated him and placed an interdict over Anjou. Sibylla then accompanied her widower father to the crusader kingdom of Jerusalem, where he married Melisende de Réthel, the heiress of the kingdom, and became king himself in 1131. In 1134 Sibylla married Thierry d'Alsace, Graaf van Vlaanderen, who had arrived on his first pilgrimage to the Holy Land. He was the son of Thierry II, duke of Lorraine, and his second wife Gertrud of Flanders. Thierry and Sibylla had six children of whom three sons and a daughter would have progeny. She returned to Flanders with her new husband and during his absence on the Second Crusade the pregnant Sibylla acted as regent of the county. Baudouin IV, Graaf van Henegouwen/Hainault, took the opportunity to attack Flanders, but Sibylla led a counter-attack and pillaged Hainault. In response Baudouin ravaged Artois. The archbishop of Reims intervened and a truce was signed, but Thierry took revenge on Baudouin when he returned in 1149. In 1157 Sibylla travelled with Thierry on his third pilgrimage, but after arriving in Jerusalem she separated from her husband and refused to return home with him, She became a nun at a convent dedicated to St. Lazarus at Bethanie, where her step-aunt Yvette/Ioveta of Bethany, youngest sister of Queen Melisande, was abbess. Ioveta and Sibylla supported Queen Melisende and held some influence over the Church, and supported the election of Amalric of Nesle as Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem over a number of other candidates. Sibylla died in Bethanie in 1165.
