  General Notes:

AGNES [Mathilde] ([late 1103]-8 Mar [1160 or before]). "Aimericus Toarcensium vicecomes et dominus" founded the monastery of Saint-Laon de Thouars, with the consent of "uxor mea Agnes", by charter dated 9 Jan 1117 (presumably O.S.). Primary sources assign two different parentages to the wife of Vicomte Aimery [VI]. The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent records that "Willelmo comiti…" (indicating Guillaume VII Comte de Poitou) & his wife had five daughters, one of whom married "vicecomiti Toarcensi". The source does not name the Vicomte de Thouars in question, but the identity of her husband and her parentage are confirmed by the charter dated 1139 under which [her son] "Guillelmus Toarcensium vicecomes, qui Aimerico Arberti filio successi" confirmed the donation of harvest to Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes, which he had made "adhuc puerulus" with the consent of "matris mee Agnetis et avunculi mei Guillelmi...ducis Aquitanie" when "pater meus" was buried at the abbey. The Gestis Comitum Barcinonensium corroborates her Aquitainian origin when it records that [her second husband] "Raimirus" (referring to Ramiro II King of Aragon) married "sororem comitis Pictaviensis" after leaving his monastery following his accession. It should be noted that Europäische Stammtafeln refers to Agnes as the illegitimate daughter of Duke Guillaume IX by his mistress Amauberge, but the primary source on which this is based has not been identified. The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña states that "Don Ramiro el monje" married "la filla del conde de Piteus". The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris also records the marriage of Ramiro and "the sister of the count of Poitou". It should be noted that Europäische Stammtafeln refers to Agnes as the illegitimate daughter of Duke Guillaume IX by his mistress Amauberge, but the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified. The alternative origin is provided by a fragmentary chronicle of the dukes of Aquitaine which specifically records the marriage of "Aimericus de Theofagiis vicecomes…de Thoarcio" and "Mahaudam [Agnes dicta] ex prosapia sua [=Willelmus Pictaviensis comes]…filia Willelmi de Podio-Fagi qui Franciæ camerarius erat in vita Regis Philippi". If correct, this would mean that the wife of Aimery [VI] Vicomte de Thouars was Agnes [Mathilde] du Puy-du-Fou , daughter of Guillaume du Puy-du-Fou & his wife Adela ---. The dubious nature of the Puy-du-Fou genealogy is discussed below and in any case this origin is contradicted by the charter dated 1139 quoted above. Robert of Torigny records the marriage of "Remelium monachum [filim Santii regis Arragonem]" and "Mathildem matrem Willermi vicecomitis Toarci". The Gestis Comitum Barcinonensium records that "Raimirus" married "sororem comitis Pictaviensis" after leaving his monastery following his accession, corroborating Agnes's Aquitainian parentage. The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña states that "Don Ramiro el monje" married "la filla del conde de Piteus". The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris also records the marriage of Ramiro and "the sister of the count of Poitou". "Ranimirus…rex…cum coniuge mea regina Angnes" donated property to San Pedro de Antefruenzo by charter dated Oct 1136. Agnes's son Guillaume de Thouars ceded rights to her before leaving on crusade in 1147. Her son Geoffroy de Thouars made a donation in 1160 stipulating prayers for his deceased mother.

m firstly (before 9 Jan 1117) AIMERY [VI] de Thouars, son of GEOFFROY [III] Vicomte de Thouars & his wife Ameline --- (-killed in battle 1127). He succeeded his father as Vicomte de Thouars.

m secondly (Jaca [Nov/Dec] 1135) RAMIRO II "el Monje" King of Aragon and Navarre, son of SANCHO I King of Aragon [SANCHO V King of Navarre]& his second wife Félicie de Roucy (after 1083-Huesca 16 Aug 1157). He abdicated in 1137 in favour of his infant daughter, and retired to the monastery of San Pedro el Viejo at Huesca 1137-1157. 1


Agnès married Aimery VI de Thouars Vicomte de Thouars, son of Geoffroy III de Thouars Vicomte de Thouars and Ameline, before 9 Jan 1118.1 (Aimery VI de Thouars Vicomte de Thouars died in 1127 1 and was buried in Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes, Deux-Sèvres, Nouvelle-Aquitaine, 79600, FR 1.). The cause of his death was Killed in battle.


Agnès next married Ramiro II de Aragón Rey de Aragón, son of Sancho Ramírez de Aragón Rey de Aragón and Félicité de Ramerupt. (Ramiro II de Aragón Rey de Aragón was born in 1086,1 died on 16 Aug 1157 in Huesca, Aragón, 22001, ES 1 and was buried in Monasterio de San Pedro el Viejo, Huesca, Aragón, 22001, ES 1.)
