    History Geoffroy was the son of Aimery IV, vicomte de Thouars, and Arengarde de Mauléon. Some sources give his year of birth as 1040, others as late as 1075. Although his father was assassinated in 1093 or 1094, Geoffroy did not succeed as vicomte de Thouars until 1104. About 1094 he married Ameline, with whom he had four sons of whom Aimery VI would have progeny.

    Some sources indicate that his brother Herbert succeeded their father on his death. Geoffroy is said by them to have accompanied his brother on the First Crusade, where the latter was killed at Jaffa in 1104, leaving no progeny. Geoffroy is said to have returned as quickly as possible to Thouars, where he was confronted by Foulques IV \'Rechin\', comte d\'Anjou, and his son Geoffrey IV Martel. They invaded and captured Thouars in September 1104 and burnt down the castle. Geoffroy rebuilt it, completing it by 1114. During the reconstruction Geoffroy moved to Chaise-le-Vicomte which temporarily became the capital of the viscountcy. In 1106 he was caught in a conflict between the Abbey of Saint Michel de Lherm (which he supported) and the Abbey of Lucon (supported by Ebbon de Parthenay) for possession of the island of Dive.   [1
