Robert, fils de Tédald, et la « Vie de saint Nicolas » de Wace

Abstract : Taking into account previous hypotheses dealing with the identification of Robert le fiz Tiout, a mid-12th century nobleman from Caen and Wace’s patron in the Vie de saint Nicolas, the author points towards the recent edition of a cartulary belonging to the abbey of Saint-Étienne in Caen. One of its mid-12th century documents contains references to a certain Robertus filius Tedaldi, Wace’s patron in all probability. The details in the document provide an explanation for the motivations of Robert’s literary patronage, most probably as a penitential act accomplished towards the end of his life.
