Noted events in his life were:
• Disinherited. 748,1178,1179,1180,1181 Robert was one of the most active of the discontented nobles arrayed against Henry III. He was allied against the King in battles at Lewes (in Sussex), a victory, and at Evesham, a defeat. He was pardoned by the King with the condition that if he should trangress again, he was without hope of favor to be wholly disinherited.
The very next spring, however, he was at the head of a powerful army in the northern part of Derbyshire and was soon after defeated in a pitched battle at Chesterfield by Prince henry, the eldest son of the King. He was then imprisoned by the King for three years and stripped of all his lands. Robert tried to overturn this through the courts but was unsuccessful.
