Humphrey I of Toron

Military Commander


Who is Humphrey I of Toron?

Humphrey I of Toron, a Norman, appears initially in 1115 as a vassal of Josselin de Courtenay, prince of Tiberias; the castle at Toron having been built in the years after 1105, he most likely was its lord from that date, having taken part in the First Crusade.

He was the father of Humphrey II of Toron, whose mother is not known.

Humphrey I was certainly a Norman from Italy, and perhaps connected to the House of Hauteville who had settled in Southern Italy. One of his descendants of the fifteenth century claimed Tancred of Hauteville as ancestor. Family tradition was that their origins were in Denmark, i.e. Viking.
