Amaury (Almeric) (d. after 973), Count of Valenciennes. Parentage unknown.
After the disgrace of Reginar III, Godfrey I, Duke of Lower Lorraine, received the County of Hainaut, which included the cities of Valenciennes and Mons. When Godfrey died in 964, Amaury was appointed Count of Valenciennes. Other documents indicate that Amaury may have been count as early as 953 and Vanderkindere has suggested that Emperor Otto I created the March of Valenciennes in the late 940s/early 950s and appointed a separate count from that of Hainaut.
Amaury was succeeded as Count of Valenciennes by Werner.
