Alix de France (ou Adélaïde de France ou Aélis de Blois), née en 1150, morte après 1195, comtesse de Blois, fille du roi Louis VII de France (v. 1100 - 1154) et de sa première épouse Aliénor d'Aquitaine (1122 - 1204).

Après la séparation de ses parents (1152), son père Louis VII épousa Adèle de Champagne en 1160 et promit ses deux filles aux frères de sa nouvelle femme.

Elle épouse donc en 1164 Thibaut V le Bon (1129 - 1191), comte de Blois et de Chartres, veuf de Sibylle de Châteaurenard.

Ils eurent :

  1. Thibaut, mort jeune ;
  2. Louis († 1205), comte de Blois, de Chartres et de Clermont ;
  3. Henri, mort jeune ;
  4. Philippe, mort jeune ;
  5. Marguerite (1170 † 1230), comtesse de Blois et de Châteaudun, mariée vers 1183 avec Hugues III d'Oisy, vicomte de Cambrai († 1189), puis vers 1190 avec Othon Ier, comte de Bourgogne († 1200), et enfin avec Gautier II d'Avesnes, seigneur de Guise († 1246) ;
  6. Adélaide, abbesse de Fontevraud en 1190 ;
  7. Isabelle († 1248), comtesse de Chartres et de Romorantin, mariée à Sulpice d'Amboise, puis à Jean de Montmirail, vicomte de Cambrai († 1244).

Son mari participa à la troisième croisade et fut tué lors du siège d'Acre. Elle assuma la régence des comtés de Blois et de Chartres pendant la minorité de son fils Louis.

Alix of France (summer 1151 – 1197/1198) was the second daughter born to Louis VII of France by his first wife Eleanor of Aquitaine. She was named after her aunt Petronilla of Aquitaine, who was also called "Alix". The birth of a second daughter to Eleanor and Louis instead of a badly needed son was one of the final nails in the coffin of their marriage. Her parents were soon divorced, although the princesses were declared legitimate, and the custody of young Alix and her sister Marie was awarded to their father. Their mother Eleanor left the French court and was remarried to King Henry II of England. King Louis also remarried twice.

Alix was an older paternal half-sister to Marguerite of France, Alys, Countess of the Vexin, Philip II of France and Agnes of France. She was also an older maternal half-sister to William IX, Count of Poitiers, Henry the Young King, Matilda, Duchess of Saxony, Richard I of England, Geoffrey II, Duke of Brittany, Leonora of Aquitaine , Joan Plantagenet and John of England.

She married Theobald V, Count of Blois in 1164. Her sister Marie married Theobald's brother Henry. Alix served as regent when her husband left for the East, and since their son was underage, she continued as regent for several years after Theobald's death in 1191. Alix and Theobald had seven children:

Theobald (d. 1182)

Louis I, Count of Blois, who died in Constantinople in 1205

Henri (d. 1182)

Philippe (d. 1202)

Marguerite of Blois (d. aft. 1230), who married (1) Otto I, Count of Burgundy; (2) Gauthier II, Seigneur of Avesnes. (see Margaret of Blois)

Isabelle of Chartres (1180–1247/1248), married (1) Sulpice of Amboise; (2) Jean de Montmirail

Alix of Blois, abbess of Fontevrault
