Hugh II, Count of Ponthieu

Hugh II of Ponthieu was count of Ponthieu and lord of Abbeville, the son of Enguerrand I of Ponthieu.[1] Evidently, Hugh II was the half-brother of Guy, who became the bishop of Amiens; Fulk, who became the abbot of Forest l'Abbaye; and Robert. However, it is possible that both Robert and Hugh II were the sons of Enguerrand's first wife, and Guy and Fulk the sons of a later wife that Enguerrand I married when he was in his forties.

Hugh II was married to Bertha of Aumale, Countess of Aumale.[1] They had:

  • Enguerrand II who succeeded Hugh II as Count of Ponthieu[1]
  • Robert
  • Hugh[a]
  • Waleran
  • Beatrice of Ponthieu (1022–1054) was married to William of Talou, the count of Arques
  • Guy I (possibly), succeeded Enguerrand II as Count of Ponthieu
