Ansoldus de Manlia
Ansoldus de Manlia, or Manley, in his younger days joined the army under Guiscard, and aided in defeating the Emperor Alexius in the battle of Durazzo. It would appear that he was partly impelled to undertake this expedition, by being disappointed in his love for Odelina, a daughter of the Lord Mauvoisin; his father being averse to his marrying her. However, he returned in safety, and then wedded the lady of his choice. - Orderic.
