Consecrated associate-king 25 Oct 1131, Notre-Dame de Reims, he received effective power from his father 28 Oct 1135, due to the latter's ill health.

The king assembled his army at Metz 15 Jun 1147 and arrived in Constantinople 4 Oct 1147. He left the government of France in the hands of Suger Abbé de Saint-Denis, his brother Henri Archbishop of Reims and his cousin Raoul Comte de Vermandois. Although the crusade failed in its aim of capturing Damascus end-Jul 1148, Louis VII gained prestige as the first western king to lead a crusading army. After leaving Palestine in Summer 1149, he landed in Calabria where he discussed launching a new crusade with Roger II King of Sicily and Pope Eugenius III aimed at taking vengeance on Byzantium, but the scheme was later dropped for lack of support from Konrad III King of Germany who had entered an alliance with Emperor Manuel I[430].

; Per Genealogics: "Constance of Castile was born after 1140, the daughter of Alfonso VII, king of Castile and León, and Berenguela of Barcelona. About 1153 she became the second wife of Louis VII, king of France, son of Louis VI 'the Fat', king of France, and Adèle de Savoie. Louis had divorced his first wife Eleanor de Poitou, duchesse d'Aquitaine. The official reason had been that he was too close a relative of Eleanor for the marriage to be legal by Church standards; however, he was even more closely related to Constance. Constance and Louis had two daughters of whom Alix would have progeny, marrying Guillaume II Talvas, comte de Ponthieu et Montreuil. Constance died on 4 October 1160 giving birth to Alix. Desperate for a son, Louis remarried a mere five weeks after her death, to Alix de Blois, with whom he had his son and successor Philippe II. Constance was buried in the Basilica of Saint-Denis, France."4

; Per Med Lands:
     "Infante don JAIME de Aragón, son of PEDRO II King of Aragon & his wife Marie de Montpellier (Montpellier 1 Feb 1208-Valencia 27 Jul 1276, bur Poblet, monastery of Nuestra Señora). The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña names "Jaime" as son of Pedro II King of Aragon and his wife "la filla del noble princep Don Guillem de Montpeller…Maria, nieta del Emperador de Costantin noble"[367]. The Chronicle of Ramon Muntaner names "Jacques…roi d´Arragon…fils [de] Pierre roi d´Arragon et de…madame Marie de Montpellier"[368]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "rex Iacobus Arragonensis" as son of "rege Petro Arragonum" & his wife[369]. The Thalamus de Montpellier records the birth 1 Feb 1207 (probably O.S.) of "Jacme rei dAragon lo fill de la regina dona de Montpellier"[370]. A "Chronique en Languedocien, tirée du cartulaire de Raymond le Jeune comte de Toulouse" records the birth in 1208 of "Jacmes Peire reis d´Arago"[371]. His father gave him into the custody of Simon de Montfort, who governed Béziers and Carcassonne in the King of Aragon’s name after their conquest in 1209, at Carcassonne. He succeeded his father in 1213 as JAIME I "el Conquistador" King of Aragon, Conde de Barcelona, Gerona, Osona, Besalú, Comte de Cerdagne/Cerdaña et de Roussillon. After his release from Carcassonne and return to Catalonia was negotiated, the Templars of Monzón took charge of him, with his great uncle Sancho acting as Regent. He conquered Mallorca from the Moors, the city of Mallorca falling 31 Dec 1229 after a prolonged siege. The Chronicle of Narbonne Saint-Paul records that "insula Majoricarum" was captured in 1230 by "dominum Jacobum"[372]. He proclaimed himself King of Mallorca 1230, deposing the wali Abu Yahya Hiqem. He launched the conquest of Valencia from Monzón Oct 1236, the city finally surrendering to a siege 28 Sep 1238. Proclaimed King of Valencia 1238. The Moors of Alicante offered to submit to him 1240, but Jaime refused on the grounds of his agreements with the King of Castile. He renounced all his rights in Occitania (except Montpellier and the Carladès) by the treaty of Corbeil May 1258 with Louis IX King of France. He besieged and captured Murcia Jan 1266, before turning the city over to Castile. He recorded the events of his life in his Book of Deeds (“Llibre dels feyts”). The testament of "Jac. Reg. Arag. et Maioric. et Valentiæ…Comitis Barchinonæ et Urgelli, et Domini Montpessulani" was published at Perpignan 28 Sep 1299 on behalf of "Jacobo…Rege Majorie, comite Rossilionis et Ceritanuæ ac domino Montispessulani" at the request of "Henrici…Comitis Rutenensis", with the seals of "domini Petri bonæ memoriæ et…domini Jacobi fratris sui"[373]. Under this testament, the king bequeathed the kingdoms of Aragon and Valencia, the county of Barcelona to "Infanti Petro filio nostro", the kingdom of Mallorca and Menorca, the lordship of Montpellier, "Comitatum Rossilionis et Cauquoliberum et…Conflent et comitatum Ceritaniæ et Vallem Aspirii" to "Infanti Jacobo filio nostro". Under the testament of "Jacobus…Rex Aragoniæ, Majoricarum et Valenciæ, Comes Barchinonæ et Urgelli, et Dominus Montispessulani", dated 26 Aug 1272, the king made bequests to "filius noster Infans Jacobus…filium nostrum primogenitum Infantem P…filiam nostram Domnam Yolant…filios…Philippi…Regis Franciæ et Domnæ Elizabet bonæ memoriæ Regina Franciæ filiæ nostræ, nepotes nostras…filios nostros Jacobum et Petrum quos legitime…ex Domna Teresia Ægidii de Bidaure…filios Infantis Domnæ Constantiæ quondam filiæ nostræ et Infantis domini Emanuelis fratris…Regis Castellæ, nepotes nostros"[374]. The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña records the death 3 Jul 1276 of King Jaime aged 72 and his burial "cerca el altar de Senyora Santa Maria en la Seu de Valencia"[375]. The Chronicle of Ramon Muntaner records the death "6 Jul 1276" of "le roi Jacques" and his burial at Poblet[376].

On the death of her father she was betrothed to Jaime, infant son of Pedro II King of Aragon, but the contract was cancelled. She concluded a secret protocol of concubinage with Jaime I King of Aragon 23 Oct 1228, under which he confirmed her rights to Urgel and the succession to the county of any son born from their union, nullified shortly afterwards by her second marriage. "Aurembiax…conmitissa Urgelensi filia…Hermengaudi comitis Urgelensis et dominæ Alviræ matris nostræ…commitissimæ" swore allegiance to the Order of Santiago, referring to her contracts to marry "Petrum Infantem Portugaliæ" and "Iacobo…Rege Aragoniæ", by charter dated 6 May 1229[378].

The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña records the marriage of Jaime I King of Aragon and "la filia del Rey de Castiella…Elionor", stating that the couple was separated on grounds of consanguinity and that Leonor was buried "en el monasterio de Beruela"[379]. The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Henricum qui iuvenis obiit et quinque sorores, prima Berengaria…secunda Urraca, tertia regina Francie, quarta Alienor, quinta Constantia monialis" as children of "sorore regis Anglie Richardi…Alienor…soror ex alio patre comitisse Marie Campaniensis", specifying that Leonor was "Arragonum regina"[380].

; Per Med Lands: "GUILLAUME of Sicily (1155-17 Nov 1189). The Annals of Romoald name (in order) "Rogerum…Robbertum…Guillelmum et Heinricum" as the children of "rex Guillelmus" & his wife[568]. He succeeded his father in 1166 as GUILLAUME II "le Bon" King of Sicily. The Annales Casenses record the coronation "mense Iulii 1166" of "Wililemus filius eius [=regis Wilielmi]"[569]. He ruled under the regency of his mother until 1171. Emperor Friedrich was forced to abandon his plans to conquer southern Italy when his army was decimated by an epidemic in Rome in 1167, and after the foundation of the Lombard League of north Italian towns[570]. He even went so far as to offer Guillaume II the hand of one of his daughters in marriage, but this was refused. He was crowned king in 1177. The dispute with Germany was finally settled by the 1184 agreement for the marriage of the king's aunt Constanza with Heinrich, son of the emperor. After receiving Josias Archbishop of Tyre, sent by Corrado di Monferrato in [Sep] 1187 to inform the Pope of the plight of the kingdom of Jerusalem, King Guillaume wrote to his fellow monarchs urging a new crusade[571]. The Annales Casinenses record that "Wilielmus rex Sicilie" died childless and without a testament in Nov 1189[572]. [Betrothed ([1166/67]) to MARIA Komnene, daughter of Emperor MANUEL I & his first wife Bertha [Eirene] von Sulzbach (Mar 1152-poisoned Jul 1182). The Annals of Romoald record that Emperor Manuel sent ambassadors to King Guillaume II shortly after his accession proposing this marriage to his only daughter, and in a later passage refer to the betrothal of "filiam suam Zura Mariam" in 1172[573]. Niketas Choniates records the proposed betrothal between "Maria filia [Manuelis]" and "Guilielmus Siciliæ rex"[574]. This betrothal was proposed by her father in [1166/67] while Maria was still betrothed to Béla of Hungary, to gain support for his plan to be crowned emperor by the Pope. There is some doubt about how far the negotiations proceeded. If the betrothal did take place, it was terminated by Maria's father[575].] m (Palermo Cathedral 13 Feb 1177) as her first husband, JOAN of England, daughter of HENRY II King of England & his wife Eléonore Dss d'Aquitaine (Château d’Angers, Anjou Oct 1165-Fontevrault Abbey in childbirth 4 Sep 1199, bur Fontevrault Abbey). Ralph de Diceto´s Abbreviationes Chronicorum record in 1165 that “Alienor regina” gave birth to “filiam...Johannam”[576]. Her birth is recorded by Matthew Paris[577]. Ralph de Diceto´s Abbreviationes Chronicorum record in 1177 that “Johanna filia regis Angliæ” married “Willelmo regi Siciliæ”[578]. Matthew Paris also records her first marriage in 1176, and refers to her second marriage in a later passage[579]. Her first marriage is also recorded by William of Tyre (Continuator)[580]. The Continuator of Florence of Worcester records the marriage in [1177] of "Johanna filia regis Angliæ" and "Willelmo regi Siciliæ"[581]. The marriage contract between “Willielmus...Rex Siciliæ...” and “Johannam puellam regii...filiam Henrici...Regis Anglorum” is dated Feb 1177[582]. She was crowned Queen of Sicily 13 Feb 1177 at Palermo Cathedral. After the death of her first husband, she was kept in confinement by his successor King Tancred. After her brother Richard I King of England (who was travelling through Italy on his way to join the Third Crusade in Palestine) demanded her release, she was sent to join him at Messina. The English king captured Messina to force Tancred to negotiate terms over the inheritance of King Guillaume[583]. Berengaria of Navarre, future bride of her brother King Richard, stayed with Joan after landing in Naples in early 1191. They sailed together for Palestine with King Richard's fleet, landing at Limassol, Cyprus in Apr 1191[584]. During her brother's negotiations with Saladin, after the latter's defeat at Arsuf in Sep 1191, he proposed that Queen Joanna should marry al-Adil, Saladin's brother, who would be installed as ruler of Jerusalem, but the proposal was rejected[585]. She sailed from Acre for France 29 Sep 1191 with her sister-in-law Queen Berengaria[586]. She married secondly (Rouen Oct 1196) as his fourth wife, Raymond VI Comte de Toulouse. The Thalamus de Montpellier records the marriage in 1196 "el mes duchoire" of "R. coms de Tolosa" and "la regina Johanna"[587]. The necrology of the Prieuré de Collinances records the death "4 Sep" of "Johanna regina Sicilie"[588]. The Chronicle of Guillaume de Puylaurens records that Joan died in 1199 after her brother King Richard and was buried "dans l´église de Fontevrault"[589]. Roger of Hoveden records the death "in Normannia apud Rothomagum" in Sep 1199 of "Johanna uxor Raimundi comitis de Sancto Egidio, quondam regina Siciliæ, soror…Johannis regis Angliæ" and her burial "ad abbatiam Frontis Ebraudi"[590]."

This betrothal was proposed by her father in [1166/67] while Maria was still betrothed to Béla of Hungary, to gain support for his plan to be crowned emperor by the Pope. There is some doubt about how far the negotiations proceeded. If the betrothal did take place, it was terminated by Maria's father[419]. Niketas Choniates records the marriage between "Maria filia [Manuelis]" and "filius Montisferrati marchionis, adolescenti"[420]. William of Tyre names Maria and gives her parentage, when recording her marriage[421]. Robert of Torigny records the marriage in 1180 of "Manuel imperator Constantinopolitano…filiam suam natam ex priore uxore sua" and "Rainerio filio Willelmi principis Montis Ferrati"[422]. She and her husband became the focus of opposition to the regency of the dowager Empress Maria. She was put to death with her husband by Emperor Andronikos I.
     "Betrothed firstly (1163, contract broken 1169) to BÉLA of Hungary, son of GÉZA II King of Hungary & his wife Ievfrosina Mstislavna of Kiev (1149-23 Apr 1196, bur Székesfehérvár, transferred to Coronation Church Budapest). Under the peace treaty signed 1164 between his brother István III King of Hungary and Emperor Manuel, Béla was confirmed as Duke of Croatia and Dalmatia, and sent to Constantinople (where he adopted the name ALEXIOS) as King István's acknowledged successor[423]. Emperor Manuel granted him the title despot, betrothed him to his daughter Maria and acknowledged him as his heir in Byzantium. The record of the synod of 6 Mar 1166 records the presence of “imperatore domino Manuele Comneno...despota...genero...eius domino Alexio...regi...”[424]. In 1169, when the emperor's own son Alexios was born, Béla was demoted from despot to cæsar[425]. The betrothal was terminated, although Béla remained in Constantinople as a member of the imperial family until 1172, when he succeeded his brother as BÉLA III King of Hungary.
     "Betrothed secondly ([1166/67]) to GUILLAUME II King of Sicily, son of GUILLAUME I "le Mauvais" King of Sicily & his wife Infanta doña Margarita de Navarra (1155-17 Nov 1189).

     "RAYMOND de Toulouse, son of RAYMOND V Comte de Toulouse & his wife Constance de France (27 Oct 1156-Toulouse 2 Aug 1222). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "heretici comitis de Tolosa Raymundi" as son of "Constantia [filia rex Ludovicus cognomento Grossus"[564]. The Chronicle of Guillaume de Puilaurens names "Raymundum…Taillaferrum et Balduinum" as the sons of Comte Raymond V and his wife Constance, adding that Raymond was born in 1156[565]. The Thalamus de Montpellier records the birth "las vespras de Symonis e Jude" in 1156 of "R. coms fill de Constansa"[566]. The Chronicle of Toulouse Saint-Saturnin records the birth "in vigilia SS. Simonis et Judæ" in 1156 of "Raimundus comes filius dominæ Constantiæ"[567]. He succeeded his father in 1194 as RAYMOND VI Comte de Toulouse, Duc de Narbonne, Marquis de Provence. He was in Palestine in Oct 1202, without his fifth wife[568]. "Raymundus…dux Narbonensis, comes Tholosanus, marchio Provincie" granted exemptions to Valence Saint-Rufus by charter dated 12 Mar 1205[569]. The testament of "Raymundus…dux Narbone, comes Tolosæ, marchio Provinciæ" is dated 11 Sep 1209 and names "Baldoyno fratri meo…Raymundo filio meo…Alienor uxor mea", bequeathes "Castluscium et Bruniqueldum" to "Bertrando filio meo", his properties "ad Montemlaurum et ad sanctum Georgium" to "Willelmæ filiæ meæ"[570]. Simon de Montfort Earl of Leicester defeated the Comte de Toulouse at Castelnaudary, and adopted the titles Vicomte d'Albi, Comte de Toulouse, Duc de Narbonne and Marquis de Provence[571]. "Simonem comitem de Monteforti" swore homage to Philippe V King of France for "ducatu Narbonensi, comitatu Tolosano, vicecomitatu Biterrensi et Carcassonæ" by charter dated Apr 1216[572]. Simon lost Toulouse to Comte Raymond in Sep 1217, and was killed during an unsuccessful siege of the city[573]. The Chronicle of Toulouse Saint-Saturnin records that "comes Sancti Aegidii" recovered Toulouse in 1217[574]. The Thalamus de Montpellier records the death "a Tolosa" in Sep 1222 of "R. coms de San Gili"[575]. The Chronicle of Toulouse Saint-Saturnin records the death in 1222 of "Raimundus comes Tolosæ, filius dominæ Constanciæ reginæ"[576].
     "Betrothed (early 1172) to DOUCE [Dolça/Dulce] Ctss de Provence, daughter of RAYMOND BERENGER II Comte de Provence & his wife Ryksa of Silesia (after 1162-[1 Apr/12 Dec] 1172). Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1 Apr 1172 under which "Beatrix comitissa Melgorii" divided the county of Melgueil between "filie mee Ermessende" and "Dulcie neptis mee, filie quondam filii mei Raimundi comitis Provincie", which also records the betrothal between Dulcie and "Raimundo, duci Narbone, comiti Tolose, marchioni Provincie…filio"[577].
     "m firstly (12 Sep 1172) as her second husband, ERMESENDE de Pelet Ctss de Melgueil, widow of PIERRE BERMOND Seigneur de Sauve, daughter of BERNARD Pelet Seigneur d’Alais Comte de Melgueil & his wife Beatrix Ctss de Melgueil (-Château de Malaucème [Sep/3 Nov] 1176). "Beatrix comitissa Melgorii" divided the county of Melgueil between "filie mee Ermessende" and "Dulcie neptis mee, filie quondam filii mei Raimundi comitis Provincie" by contract dated 1 Apr 1172, which names "Petro Bermundo de Salvis genero meo" and records the betrothal between Dulcie and "Raimundo, duci Narbone, comiti Tolose, marchioni Provincie…filio"[578]. This was superseded by a second donation: "Beatrix comitissa Melgorii" donated "totum comitatum Melgorii" to "Raymundo duci Narbonæ comiti Tolosæ, marchioni Provinciæ", and granted "filiam meam Hermessindam" in marriage to "filio tuo Raymundo" with the county as dowry with a reservation for "filius eius quem ex Petro Bermundo" and "Dulcia neptis mea, filia quondam fili mei Raymundi comitis Provinciæ", by charter dated 12 Dec 1172, witnessed by "Bermundi de Salve, Bermundi de Vidinobrio, Eleziarii de Usecia, Raymundi eius fratris..."[579]. On the same day, Ermessende gave her inheritance to her husband. Ermessende predeceased her mother and, by her testament dated Sep 1176 and read 3 Nov 1176, granted the county to her husband, and bequeathed an annual income to her mother[580].
     "m secondly ([Sep 1176/1179], repudiated Jan 1193 or before) BEATRIX de Béziers, daughter of RAYMOND TRENCAVEL Vicomte de Béziers et de Carcassonne & his second wife Saure --- ([after 21 Apr 1154]-after Jan 1193). The Historia Albigensis records the marriage of Comte Raymond and "sororem vicecomitis Biterrensis…Beatricem" whom he repudiated[581]. The Chronicle of Guillaume de Puylaurens records that Comte Raymond VI married "Béatrice sœur de Trencavel vicomte de Béziers" whom he repudiated, but he confuses her with her daughter when he adds that she married secondly "Pierre Bermond de Salvio"[582]. As only two daughters were mentioned in Raymond Trencavel´s testament dated 21 Apr 1154, it is presumed that the third daughter was born after this date. It is possible that this was either Adelais or Beatrix as no source has yet been identified which confirms the order of birth of these two younger daughters. "Rogerius comes Biterrensis" conceded "castro Mesoa" to "Beatrici sorori meæ" by charter dated Jan 1193[583], which is likely to indicate the date of her separation from her husband. She retired to a Cathar convent after her repudiation.
     "[Note: According to Europäische Stammtafeln[584], Comte Raymond married thirdly (1193, repudiated 1196) as her first husband, Bourgogne de Lusignan, daughter of Amaury de Lusignan [later Amaury I King of Cyprus] & his first wife Eschive d’Ibelin. It is possible that this speculation originates from the Historia Albigensis which records the marriage of Comte Raymond and "filiam ducis Cipri" after his repudiation of Beatrix de Béziers and before his marriage to Joan of England[585]. It appears that there must be confusion with Comte Raymond's marriage to "la Damsel de Chypre" (see below) and that later genealogists identified Bourgogne as the only Cypriot princess who might have been unmarried at that date and assumed therefore that she married Comte Raymond. William of Tyre (Continuator) names Bourgogne, confirms Bourgogne´s parentage, and records her (only) marriage to Gauthier [II] de Montbéliard bailli of Cyprus, Constable of Jerusalem[586]. No primary source evidence has been found which shows that Bourgogne ever left the eastern Mediterranean area. It is assumed that the Historia Albigensis has confused the order of the marriages of Comte Raymond and that it intended to refer to his marriage to "la Damsel de Chypre" which is recorded in other sources and must have taken place after the death of his wife Joan.]
     "m thirdly (Oct 1196) as her second husband, JOAN of England, widow of GUILLAUME II King of Sicily, daughter of HENRY II King of England & his wife Eléonore Dss d’Aquitaine (Château d’Angers, Anjou Oct 1165-Fontevrault Abbey in childbirth 4 Sep 1199, bur Fontevrault Abbey). Robert of Torigny records the birth "1165…mense Octobris" of "filiam [reginæ Alienoræ]…Johanna"[587]. Her birth is also recorded by Matthew of Paris, although he states neither the place nor the precise date[588]. Matthew of Paris records her first marriage in 1176, and refers to her second marriage in a later passage[589]. Her first marriage is also recorded by William of Tyre (Continuator)[590]. She was crowned Queen of Sicily 13 Feb 1177 at Palermo Cathedral. After the death of her first husband, she was kept in confinement by his successor King Tancred. After her brother Richard I King of England (who was travelling through Italy on his way to join the Third Crusade in Palestine) demanded her release, she was sent to join him at Messina. The English king captured Messina to force Tancred to negotiate terms over the inheritance of King Guillaume[591]. Berengaria of Navarre, future bride of her brother King Richard, stayed with her after landing in Naples in early 1191. They sailed together for Palestine with King Richard's fleet, landing at Limassol, Cyprus in Apr 1191[592]. During her brother's negotiations with Saladin, after the latter's defeat at Arsuf in Sep 1191, he proposed that Queen Joanna should marry al-Adil, Saladin's brother, who would be installed as ruler of Jerusalem, but the proposal was rejected[593]. She sailed from Acre for France 29 Sep 1191 with her sister-in-law Queen Berengaria[594]. Her second marriage was arranged by her brother King Richard as part of the peace terms negotiated with Raymond VI Comte de Toulouse in 1196[595]. The Chronicle of Ralph of Coggeshall records the betrothal in 1196 of "soror regis Ricardi Johanna quæ et regina exstiterat Siciliæ" and "comiti Sancti Ægidii"[596]. The Annals of Margan record the betrothal “apud Rothomagum” in 1196 of “Johanna relicta Willelmi regis Apulia” and “comiti Sancti Egidii”[597]. The Annals of Burton record the marriage in 1196 of “comes de Sancto Egidio” and “Johannam sororem Ricardi Regis, quondam reginam Siciliæ”[598]. The Thalamus de Montpellier records the marriage in 1196 "el mes duchoire" of "R. coms de Tolosa" and "la regina Johanna"[599]. She took the veil on her deathbed. The necrology of the Prieuré de Collinances records the death "4 Sep" of "Johanna regina Sicilie"[600]. The Chronicle of Guillaume de Puylaurens records that Joan died in 1199 after her brother King Richard and was buried "dans l´église de Fontevrault"[601]. Roger of Hoveden records the death "in Normannia apud Rothomagum" in Sep 1199 of "Johanna uxor Raimundi comitis de Sancto Egidio, quondam regina Siciliæ, soror…Johannis regis Angliæ" and her burial "ad abbatiam Frontis Ebraudi"[602]. The Clypeus Nascentis Fontebraldensis Ordinis records that a living child was removed from Joan´s body after she died and lived long enough to be baptised, but died and was buried at the church of Notre-Dame de Rouen[603].
     "m fourthly ([1200], divorced before [Oct 1202][604]) as her first husband, --- "la Damsel de Chypre", daughter of ISAAKIOS Dukas Komnenos ex-Emperor [of Cyprus] & his first wife --- of Armenia ([1177/78]-after 1204). She is referred to as "fille de l'empereor de Chypre" by William of Tyre (Continuator), when he records her first marriage with "li cuens de Saint Gile" who "come il l'ot tenue tant come il vost si la mist hors de sa terre", and her presence at Marseille where she met and married her second husband en route to the Crusade[605]. The Historia Albigensis records the marriage of Comte Raymond and "filiam ducis Cipri", but places the marriage after his repudiation of Beatrix de Béziers and before his marriage to Joan of England[606]. This marriage is not mentioned by the Chronicle of Guillaume de Puylaurens[607]. Her name is not recorded. Rüdt-Collenberg[608] speculates that she was the "Beatrice domicella" who received a substantial bequest under the will of Joan of England, dowager Queen of Sicily, Ctss de Toulouse, with whom "la Damsel de Chypre" spent many years. After the release of their father by Bohémond III Prince of Antioch in 1182, she and her brother were left as hostages with Prince Bohémond at Antioch where they remained for at least two years before returning to Cyprus. She was captured by Richard I King of England at Kyrenia in May 1191[609]. Matthew of Paris records that, after her father's defeat in 1191, his daughter (unnamed) was detained in the custody of two queens[610]. She sailed with the fleet of Richard King of England, with the court of his sister Joanna dowager Queen of Sicily, and arrived at Acre in Jun 1191, staying in Palestine until 29 Sep 1192 when they left for Sicily[611]. After her betrothal to Leopold of Austria was arranged, she joined Eléonore de Bretagne (betrothed to Leopold's older brother) at Rouen or Chinon, and left for Vienna in Dec 1194 in the charge of Baudouin de Béthune, but turned back when they learnt of the death of Leopold V Duke of Austria[612]. She was known as "La Damsel de Chypre". She married secondly (Marseille 1203) Thierry bâtard de Flandre (-1207). She is referred to as "fille de l'empereor de Chypre" by William of Tyre (Continuator) when he records her presence at Marseille where she met and married her second husband en route to the Crusade[613].
     "m fifthly (Jan 1203) Infanta doña LEONOR de Aragón, daughter of don ALFONSO II King of Aragon & his wife Infanta doña Sancha de Castilla ([1182]-Feb 1226). The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña records that Pedro II King of Aragon arranged the marriage of his "segunda hermana Elionor" to "Remon conte de Tolosa", stating that their marriage was childless[614]. William of Tyre (Continuator) records that "li cuens de Saint Gile" married the sister of the king of Aragon after repudiating the "fille de l'empereor de Chypre"[615]. The Gestis Comitum Barcinonensium names "Helienor" as second of the three daughters of "Ildefonsi"[616]. The testament of "Raymundus…dux Narbone, comes Tolosæ, marchio Provinciæ" is dated 11 Sep 1209 and names "…Alienor uxor mea"[617].

; Per Wikipedia:
     "Raymond VII (July 1197 – 27 September 1249) was Count of Toulouse, Duke of Narbonne and Marquis of Provence from 1222 until his death.
Family and marriages
     "Raymond was born at the Château de Beaucaire, the son of Raymond VI of Toulouse[1] and Joan of England. Through his mother, he was a grandson of Henry II of England and a nephew of kings Richard I and John of England.
     "Raymond VII married firstly, in March 1211, Sancha of Aragon, Countess of Toulouse.[1] They had one daughter, Joan, and were divorced in 1241.[2] He was engaged to Sanchia of Provence, but she married Richard of Cornwall instead.[2] In 1243 Raymond married Margaret of Lusignan, the daughter of Hugh X of Lusignan and Isabella of Angoulême. They had no children and the Council of Lyons in 1245 granted Raymond a divorce.[3] He then tried to get support of Blanche, Queen mother of France to marry Beatrice of Provence, who had just become Countess of Provence, but Beatrice married Blanche's son Charles instead.
Life
     "During the Albigensian Crusade in May 1216, Raymond set out from Marseille and besieged Beaucaire, which he captured on 24 August. He fought to reconquer the county of Toulouse from Simon de Montfort, 5th Earl of Leicester and later Simon's son Amaury VI of Montfort.
     "He succeeded his father in 1222. At the moment of his accession, he and the new count of Foix, Roger Bernard II the Great, besieged Carcassonne. On 14 September 1224, the Albigensian Crusaders surrendered and the war came to an end, each southern lord making peace with the church. However, in 1225, the council of Bourges excommunicated him and launched a crusade against him, the king of France, Louis VIII, called the Lion, wanting to renew the conflict in order to enforce his royal rights in Languedoc. Roger-Bernard tried to keep the peace, but the king rejected his embassy and the counts of Foix and Toulouse took up arms again. The war was largely a discontinuous series of skirmishes and, in January 1229, Raymond, defeated, was forced to sign the Treaty of Paris (also known as the "Treaty of Meaux"). By this treaty he ceded the former viscounty of Trencavel to Louis IX and his daughter Joan was forced to marry Alphonse, brother of the king.[4]
     "When Raymond died, Alphonse became count of Toulouse, and after Alphonse's death the county was annexed by France. Raymond VII was buried beside his mother Joan in Fontevrault Abbey.

     BIRTH     1165, Tewkesbury, Tewkesbury Borough, Gloucestershire, England
     DEATH     14 Oct 1217 (aged 51–52), Keynsham, Bath and North East Somerset Unitary Authority, Somerset, England
     Countess of Gloucester, Isabel of Gloucester. She was also known by an extraordinary number of alternative names including Hadwisa, Joan, Eleanor and Avisa, as well as variations on those names.
     Isabella was the youngest of three daughters of William FitzRobert, the 2nd Earl of Gloucester, and his wife, Hawise. She was the granddaughter of Sir Robert de Caen, the illegitimate son of King Henry I, and Mabel FitzRobert. Her older brother was Robert FitzWilliam who died at age fifteen, she was born about 1173.
     Isabella married three times; the King of England, John Lackland, Geoffrey FitzGeoffrey de Mandeville, the 2nd Earl of Essex and as his third wife, Hubert de Burgh, Earl of Kent and Justiciar of England.
     Isabella's father died when she was about ten years old, and she became Countess in her own right. King Henry II betrothed Isabella to his son, John Lackland on the 28th of September 1176. They were half second cousins, both being great grandchildren of King Henry I, but within the degrees of allowance for consanguinity. The marriage contract stipulated that if the Pope did not issue a dispensation for the marriage, Henry would provide the best possible husband for Isabella. At the same time, Henry disinherited her two older sisters who had already married prominent Earls, making Isabella the sole heir to Gloucester.
     John Lackland and Isabella were married at Marlborough Castle in Wiltshire on the 29th of August, 1189. John immediately became the Earl of Gloucester in right of his wife. Then the Archbishop of Canterbury, Baldwin, declared their marriage void by reason of consanguinity, and placed the earldom in suspension, which was lifted by Pope Clement III, granting a dispensation for the marriage but forbidding any bedroom activities, and thusly, no issue. In 1199, John became King of England in April, crowned in May, and had the marriage annulled by August. The King kept Isabella's lands, giving them to Isabella's nephew, Amaury de Montfort, Count of Evereaux, son of her oldest sister, Mabel. Amaury, the 4th Earl of Gloucester, however, died in 1213 without issue and Isabella's rightful lands and Earldom were returned to her.
     Isabella would marry Geoffrey FitzGeoffrey de Mandeville, 2nd Earl of Essex before 1216, when he died. A year later, she married Hubert de Burgh, 1st Earl of Kent and son of Walter de Burgh, as his third of four wives, in September of 1217.
     Isabella died a month after her marriage at the approximate age of fourty-four, most likely at Keynsham Abbey, founded by her father around 1170 at the request of her dying brother. Robert FitzWilliam. Isabella's nephew, the son of her sister, Amice, Gilbert de Clare, the son of Richard de Clare, became the 5th Earl of Gloucester.

     Known as Joan of Wales, Joan of England, Princess of Wales and Lady of Snowdon, or Siwan, her Welsh name. Granddaughter of King Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine. Illegitimate daughter of John Lackland, King of England and Regina Clementina or Queen Clemence, reportedly before John married his first wife.
     Joan was the second or third wife of Llywelyn the Great, Prince of Wales and Gwynedd (Llywelyn ap Ioworth), the son of Iorwerth Drwyndwn and Marared ferch Madog. They married before 23 March 1205 by marriage settlement dated Oct 1204, and recorded April 1205, and had several children. Two definite children are:
* Ellen ferch Llywelyn 1207–1253, wife of John the Scot, Earl of Chester & Robert II de Quincy
* Dafydd ap Llywelyn 1212-1246, husband of Isabella de Braose

     Other children thought to be Joan's and Llywelyn's are:
* Gwladus Ddu 1206–1251, wife of Reginald de Braose & Ralph de Mortimer
* Susanna, sent to England as a hostage in 1228
* Angharad ferch Llywelyn
* Margaret, wife of Sir John de Braose, grandson of William de Braose, 4th Lord of Bramber & Sir Walter de Clifford

     In April of 1226 Joan obtained a papal decree from Pope Honorius III which declared her legitimate, and waived her rights to the throne.
     Joan was found in her bed chamber with William de Braose in 1230. William was accused of being her lover and hung publicly om 02 May 1230 in Abergwyngregyn according to legend, at the place was known as 'Gwern y Grog', but thought perhaps the execution took place at Crogen near Bala. Rumors and legend say she gave birth to a daughter in early 1231, which would have been William's child. Joan was immediately placed under house arrest for twelve months, after which Llywelyn supposedly forgave her, and restored her to her rightful position.
     Joan died at the royal home at Abergwyngregyn on the north coast of Gwynedd, and was originally buried at the new Friars Minors Abbey at Llanfaes, Anglesey, later removed to Beaumaris Parish Church in 1537 during the dissolution of the monasteries, where her empty coffin still stands, an inscription above it reads,
     "This plain sarcophagus, (once dignified as having contained the remains of Joan, daughter of King John, and consort of Llewelyn ap Iowerth, Prince of North Wales, who died in the year 1237), having been conveyed from the Friary of Llanfaes, and alas, used for many years as a horsewatering trough, was rescued from such an indignity and placed here for preservation as well as to excite serious meditation on the transitory nature of all sublunary distinctions. By Thomas James Warren Bulkeley, Viscount Bulkeley, Oct 1808".

     "LLYWELYN ap Iorwerth, son of IORWERTH "Drwyndwyn/flat nose" Prince of Gwynedd & his wife Marared of Powys ([1173]-11 Apr 1240[273], bur Aberconway). He succeeded in 1194 as LLYWELYN "Fawr/the Great" Prince of Gwynedd, Prince of All Wales. The Annales Cambriæ name "Lewelinus filius Gervasii filii Owini Guynet…princeps Walliæ"[274]. The Annales Londonienses record the death "Id Apr" in 1240 of "Lewelinus princeps Norwalliæ"[275]. The Chronicle of the Princes of Wales records that "Llywelyn son of Iorwerth prince of Wales died…and was buried at Aberconway" in 1240[276].
     "[m firstly (end [1190]) --- of Chester, daughter of HUGH de Kevilloc Earl of Chester & his wife Bertrade de Montfort ([1174/75]?-[1191/95]?). Pope Innocent III’s third letter dated 17 Feb 1205 (see below for further details), refers to “idem L” marrying “sororem...comitis Castriæ”, dated to end-[1190] from the context[277]. No other reference has been found to this marriage or her parentage. If it is correct, she presumably died soon after the marriage.]
     "m firstly/secondly (Betrothed [1190]?, betrothal terminated ([1191/92]), [1195/96], separated [annulled] [1203/05]) as her second husband, --- of Man, widow of RHODRI ap Owain, daughter of RAGNALD King of Man & [his wife ---] ([1182/83]-after 17 Feb 1205). Pope Innocent III, by letter dated 24 Nov 1199, requested an enquiry after “R. princeps Norwaliæ” requested permission to marry “filiam...prinicipis Insularum” notwithstanding that “patruo eius eadem infra nubiles annos exstitit desponsata”, in particular investigating whether she was still under 7 years old [youngest canonical age for marriage at the time] when “a nepote, vel patruo desponsata”[278]. Pope Innocent III, by letter dated 19 Apr 1203, reported the enquiry after “N. princeps Norwalliæ” requested permission to marry “filiam...principis Insularum”, referring to his previous letter, confirming that “L. principe Norwalliæ” had been betrothed to “puella, completis octo annis”, that she was later betrothed to “patruo...suo”, that the enquiry found against the marriage but allowed it to stand to bring peace to the dispute[279]. Pope Innocent III issued a third letter dated 17 Feb 1205, after further facts emerged, annulling the marriage and recording that “ejusdem L. patruus ipsam” was betrothed to the girl when in her ninth year, married her in her tenth, and cohabited with her, including “in Manniam rediens” before returning “in Walliam” by himself leaving his wife behind, for 2 years, 2 months and 15 days since their marriage[280]. Remfry notes that Dwnn’s Visitation incorrectly names “Rhunallt, the daughter of the king of Man” as wife of Gruffydd ap Llywelyn (see below) and suggests that this may represent confusion with the first/second wife of Llywelyn[281]. Remfry also suggests that Gruffydd was the son of his father’s first wife, declared illegitimate when his parents’ marriage was annulled, citing a contemporary poet who records Owain “Goch”, oldest son of Gruffydd ap Llywelyn, as “of the lineage of the kings of Man”[282].
     "m secondly/thirdly (after 16 Apr 1205) JOAN [of England], illegitimate daughter of JOHN King of England & his mistress Clementia Pinel (-30 Mar 1237). King John confirmed "castrum de Ellesmara" to "Lewelino principi Norwallie in maritagium cum Johanna filia nostra" by charter dated 16 Apr 1205[283]. Her husband sent her to make peace with the king her father in 1211 when the latter was attacking North Wales. She was legitimated in 1226: Pope Honorius III gave dispensation to “Joan wife of Leuwelin prince of North Wales, daughter of king John declaring her legitimate, but without prejudice to the king or realm of England”, dated 29 Apr 1226[284]. She and her son David did homage to King Henry III in 1229[285]. The Chronicle of the Princes of Wales records that "William Bruse was hanged by Llywelyn son of Iorewerth, having been caught in the chamber of the prince with the princess Jannet, daughter of King John and wife of the prince" in 1230[286]. The Annales Cambriæ record the death in 1237 of "domina Johanna filia regis Angliæ et uxor Lewilini principis Walliæ" and her burial "apud Haber"[287]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the death “III Kal Apr” in 1236 of “domina Johanna Walliæ, uxor Lewelini, filia regis Johannis et reginæ Clemenciæ”[288]. The Chronicle of the Princes of Wales records that "Dame Joan daughter of king John and the wife of Llywelyn son of Iorwerth" died in Feb 1237 "at the court of Aber and was buried in a new cemetery on the side of the strand which Howel bishop of Llanelwy had consecrated"[289].
     "m thirdly/fourthly (1239) EVA, daughter of FULK FitzWarin [IV] & his [second] wife Constance de Tosny. The Annales Cestrienses record in 1239 that “Lewelinus princeps Wallie” married “filiam Fulconis filii Warini”[290]. The Legend of Fulk Fitz Warin records that "Lowis le prince de Walys" married "sire Fouke…Eve sa file" after the death of his first wife "dame Johane…que fust la file le roi Henre de Engleterre"[291].
     "Mistress (1): [TANGWYSTL, daughter of LLYWARCH “Goch [the Red]” of Rhos & his wife ---. Lloyd’s early 20th century History of Wales names “Tangwystl, daughter of Llywarch the Red of Rhos”, as mother of Llywelyn’s son Gruffydd[292]. Lloyd cites Dwnn’s Heraldic Visitation of Wales which names Llywelyn’s children “Grufydd a Gwladus” as the children of “Tanglwyst verch gôch o’r Rhos, ag i Lowardh Holdwrch”[293]. Remfry, however, suggests that Tangwystl “seems only to have been created in the 17th century”[294], although he also cites a survey of Denbighshire dated [1336] which records that Prince Llywelyn had earlier donated land (“Dyncadvel” in Llannefydd) to “cuidam amice sue nomine Tanguestel Goch” who sold it[295]: the word “amice” [variant of “amicæ”], dative singular of “amica”, could be a euphemism to describe Llywelyn’s mistress. Remfry, suggesting that Llywelyn’s first/second wife (the princess of Man) was Gruffydd’s mother, cites a contemporary poet who records Owain “Goch” (Gruffydd’s oldest son) as “of the lineage of the kings of Man”[296]. The suggestion seems chronologically possible, given the likely birthdate of Llywelyn’s first/second wife, if Gruffydd was born in the late 1190s. Given these apparently conflicting indications, certainty about the identity of Gruffydd’s mother is difficult.]
     "Mistresses (2): - (7): ---. The names of the other mistresses of Prince Llywelyn are not known."

Her mother's name is known from Joan's obituary in the Tewkesbury Annals, where she is mysteriously called 'Regina Clementina' (Queen Clementia or Clemence). Joan seems to have spent her childhood in France, as King John had her brought to England from Normandy in preparation for her wedding.
     “In April 1226 Joan obtained a papal decree from Pope Honorius III, declaring her legitimate on the basis that her parents had not been married to others at the time of her birth, but without giving her a claim to the English throne.
     “In 1205 Joan's father married her to Llywelyn Fawr, prince of Wales. They had a son Dafydd and daughter Elen who would have progeny.
     “At Easter 1230, William de Braose, who was Llywelyn's nominal prisoner at the time, was discovered together with Joan in Llywelyn's bedchamber. William de Braose was hanged in the marshland at the foot of Garth Celyn, the place known since as Gwern y Grog. Joan herself was placed out of public view, under virtual house arrest, at Garth Celyn, for twelve months after the incident. She was then (apparently) forgiven by Llywelyn, and restored as wife and princess.
     “Joan was never called Princess of Wales, but in Welsh, 'Lady of Wales'. She died at the royal home, Garth Celyn, Aberr Garth Celyn, on the north coast of Gwynedd in 1237. Llywelyn's great grief at her death is recorded; he founded a Franciscan friary on the seashore at Llanfaes, opposite the royal home, in her honour. The friary was consecrated in 1240, shortly before Llywelyn's death. It was closed down in 1537 by Henry VIII of England during the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
     “In the 19th century it was discovered that Joan's coffin was being used as a horse trough. Rescued from this use, it was placed in Baron Hill Park, near Baumaris in Anglesey. Its most recent location is given as the Church of St. Mary and St. Nicholas in Beaumaris.”.5

     "King John had one illegitimate daughter by Mistress (2) [Clementia]:
     "JOAN (-30 Mar 1237). King John confirmed "castrum de Ellesmara" to "Lewelino principi Norwallie in maritagium cum Johanna filia nostra" by charter dated 16 Apr 1205[646]. Her husband sent her to make peace with the king her father in 1211 when the latter was attacking North Wales. She was legitimated in 1226: Pope Honorius III gave dispensation to “Joan wife of Leuwelin prince of North Wales, daughter of king John declaring her legitimate, but without prejudice to the king or realm of England”, dated 29 Apr 1226[647]. She and her son David did homage to King Henry III in 1229[648]. The Chronicle of the Princes of Wales records that "William Bruse was hanged by Llywelyn son of Iorewerth, having been caught in the chamber of the prince with the princess Jannet, daughter of King John and wife of the prince" in 1230[649]. The Annales Cambriæ record the death in 1237 of "domina Johanna filia regis Angliæ et uxor Lewilini principis Walliæ" and her burial "apud Haber"[650]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the death “III Kal Apr” in 1236 of “domina Johanna Walliæ, uxor Lewelini, filia regis Johannis et reginæ Clemenciæ”[651]. The Chronicle of the Princes of Wales records that "Dame Joan daughter of king John and the wife of Llywelyn son of Iorwerth" died in Feb 1237 "at the court of Aber and was buried in a new cemetery on the side of the strand which Howel bishop of Llanelwy had consecrated"[652].

     "Eleanor was born in 1215, the youngest child of King John of England and Isabella d'Angoulême.
     "At the time of Eleanor's birth, King John's London was conquered and Queen Isabella was in shame. John had been forced to sign the Magna Carta. Eleanor would never meet her father, as he died at Newark Castle when she was barely a year old. The French, led by their king Philippe II August, were marching through the south. The only lands loyal to her brother King Henry III were in the middle and southwest. The barons ruled the north, but they united with the royalists under William Marshal, 1st earl of Pembroke, who protected the young king and Philippe was defeated.
     "William Marshal died in 1219 and Eleanor was promised to his son, also named William. They were married on 23 April 1224 at New Temple Church in London. The younger William was 34 and Eleanor only nine. He died in London on 6 April 1231, days before their 7th anniversary. There were no children of this marriage. The widowed Eleanor swore a holy oath of chastity in the presence of Edmund Rich, archbishop of Canterbury.
     "Seven years later she met Simon VI de Montfort, 6th earl of Leicester, son of Simon V de Montfort, 5th earl of Leicester, duke of Narbonne, and Alix de Montmorency. According to Matthew Paris (c.1200-1259) the Benedictine monk and chronicler, Simon was attracted to Eleanor's beauty and elegance as well as her wealth and high birth. They fell in love and married secretly on 7 January 1238 at the King's chapel at Westminster Palace. Her brother King Henry later alleged that he only allowed the marriage because Simon had seduced Eleanor. The marriage was controversial because of the oath Eleanor had sworn several years before to remain chaste. Because of this, Simon made a pilgrimage to Rome seeking papal approval for their union. Simon and Eleanor had seven children of whom only Guy and Eléonore would have progeny.
     "Simon de Montfort had the real power behind the throne, but when he tried to take the throne, he was defeated with his son at the Battle of Evesham on 4 August 1265. Eleanor fled to exile in France where she became a nun at Montargis Abbey, a nunnery founded by her deceased husband's sister Amicie. She died and was buried there on 13 April 1275."9

     "ELEANOR of England (1215-convent of the sisters of St Dominic, near Montargis 13 Apr 1275). The Annals of Dunstable record that “Willelmus Marscallus junior” married “sororem Henrici regis Angliæ” in 1225, recorded as the first event in that year[610]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the marriage in 1224 of “soror regis Henrici” and “juveni Marescallo”[611]. She is recorded as "Pembrocensis comitissa" (not named), sister of Isabella, by Matthew Paris[612]. He names her as daughter of King John in a later passage which records her second marriage with "Simon de Monteforti", specifying that she was "relictam Willelmi Marescalli comitis de Penbrochia"[613]. The Annals of Tewkesbury record the marriage “XIX Kal Feb in parvula capella regis apud Westmonasterium” of “soror regis Angliæ uxor quondam junioris Marscalli” and “Symoni de Monteforti”[614]. The Annales Cambriæ record that "Simon de Monteforti" married "Alienoram comitissam Penbrok" in 1238[615]. She became a nun after the death of her first husband, taking a vow of perpetual celibacy. This was not a canonical impediment to her second marriage, her second husband obtaining Papal absolution in Rome for the marriage[616]. She retired once more as a nun at Montargis (a cell of the abbey of Fontevraud) after her second husband was killed[617]. A writ dated 3 Jun "3 Edw I", following the death of "Eleanor countess of Leicester late the wife of William Marescal earl of Pembroke" related to "Kemesing manor...Neubiri manor" held in dower by the deceased from her first husband, adjudged to “Roger le Bygot earl of Norfolk and marshal of England one of the heirs of Walter le Marescal brother and heir of the said William...Roger de Mortuo Mari and Maud his wife, Eudo la Zuche and Milicent his wife, John de Hastingges and Humphrey de Boun heirs of Eva de Breuhus a sister and heir of the said Walter...Agnes de Vescy, Emery de Rupe Cauardi and Maud his wife, William de Mohun, John de Mohun, Agatha de Mortuo Mari and John de Boun heirs of Sibyl de Ferrariis another sister and heir of the said Walter...William de Valencia and Joan his wife an heir of the said Walter”[618].
