    History William d\'Aubigny was born in 1173, son of William, 2nd earl of Arundel, and Maud de St.Hilaire du Harcouet. William married Mabel de Meschines, daughter of Hugh Keveliok Le Meschin, 3rd earl of Chester, and Bertred de Montfort.

    In 1193 William succeeded his father and became 3rd Earl of Arundel. In the beginning he was one of King John\'s favourites, but he joined the baronial party opposing the King in 1216 after the sealing of the Magna Carta. According to the _Barnwell Chronicle,_ when the barons met in London in 1216 to plan the division of England among them, they assigned to d\'Aubigny the government of Lincolnshire. In 1217 he switched his support back to the young Henry III. In the following year he went on crusade, and in November 1219 he fought at Damietta. He died 30 March 1221 in Cainell near Rome on his way back to England.  [1
