    Richard was born to William Longsword, prin­ceps (chief­tain or ruler) of Nor­mandy, and Sprota. His mother was a Bre­ton con­cu­bine cap­tured in war and bound to William by a more dan­ico mar­riage. He was also the grand­son of the fa­mous Rollo. William was told of the birth of a son after the bat­tle with Riouf and other Viking rebels, but his ex­is­tence was kept se­cret until a few years later when William Longsword first met his son Richard. After kiss­ing the boy and de­clar­ing him his heir, William sent Richard to be raised in Bayeux. Richard was about ten years old when his fa­ther was killed on 17 De­cem­ber 942. After William was killed, Sprota be­came the wife of Es­per­leng, a wealthy miller. Ro­dulf of Ivrywas their son and Richard's half-brother.

    With the death of Richard's fa­ther in 942, King Louis IV of France in­stalled the boy, Richard, in his fa­ther's of­fice. Under the in­flu­ence of Ar­nulf I, Count of Flan­ders the King took him into Frank­ish territory:32–4 and plac­ing him in the cus­tody of the count of Pon­thieu be­fore the King re­neged and seized the lands of the Duchy of Nor­mandy. He then split up the Duchy, giv­ing its lands in lower Nor­mandy to Hugh the Great. Louis IV there­after kept Richard in close con­fine­ment at Lâon, but the youth es­caped from imprisonment:36–7 with as­sis­tance of Os­mond de Centville, Bernard de Sen­lis (who had been a com­pan­ion of Rollo of Nor­mandy), Ivo de Bellèsme, and Bernard the Dane (an­ces­tor to the fam­i­lies of Har­court and Beau­mont).[a] In 946, at the age of 14, Richard al­lied him­self with the Nor­man and Viking lead­ers in France and with men sent by King Harold of Den­mark. A bat­tle was fought after which Louis IV was cap­tured. Hostages were taken and hel...

    His first mar­riage in 960 was to Emma, daugh­ter of Hugh "The Great" of France, and Hed­wig von Sach­sen.They were be­trothed when both were very young. She died after 19 March 968, with no issue. Ac­cord­ing to Robert of Torigni, not long after Emma's death, Duke Richard went out hunt­ing and stopped at the house of a local forester. He be­came en­am­ored with the forester's wife, Se­in­freda, but she was a vir­tu­ous woman and sug­gested he court her un­mar­ried sis­ter, Gun­nor, in­stead. Gun­nor be­came his mis­tress and her fam­ily rose to promi­nence. Her brother, Her­fast de Cre­pon, may have been in­volved in a con­tro­ver­sial heresy trial. Gun­nor was, like Richard, of Viking de­scent, being a Dane by blood. Richard fi­nally mar­ried her to le­git­imize their children:[b] 1. Richard II"the Good", Duke of Normandy 2.
