From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hugh V was the Count of Maine and titular count from 1069 until 1131. He was the son of Azzo d'Este and Gersendis (a sister of Count Hugh IV).

In 1069, the citizens of Le Mans and some of the Manceaux barons revolted against Norman control. After securing the southern border of Normandy and expelling the Normans, they proclaimed young Hugh V to be Count of Maine.

Under Norman rule, Hugh V was count from 1069 to 1072, titular count from 1072 to 1090, count from 1090 to 1093, and finally titular count from 1093 to 1131.
