About Emma de Limoges

EMMA de Limoges, daughter of ADEMAR [III] "le Barbu" Comte de Limoges & his [second wife Marie des Cars].

3 marriages:

  • - Bardon de Cognac
  • - Guillaume X Duke of Aquitaine
  • - She married thirdly (after 1137) as his first wife, Guillaume d'Angoulême, who succeeded his father in 1140 as Guillaume VI "Taillefer" Comte d'Angoulême.

EMMA de Limoges . The Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis names "aliam filiam [Ademari]…Ennoa (seu Emma)" stating that she married "Guillermus Dux, frater Raymundi Antiochiæ principis" after the death of her earlier husband "Bardoni de Coniaco", before being abducted by "Willelmus Sector-ferri, filius Wlgrini Comitis Engolismensis"[601]. It is not certain that Emma was the daughter of Vicomte Adémar [III] by his second marriage. However, if Vicomte Adémar's first wife was a member of the family of the comtes d'Angoûleme (as speculated above), it is unlikely that she would have been Emma's mother, in view of Emma's third marriage. "Emma comitissa, uxor comitis Engolismensis, filia Ademari vicecomitis Lemovicensis" donated property "ripas stagni de Chalamans" to Notre-Dame de Dalon by undated charter[602]. The primary sources which confirm her first two marriages have not so far been identified.

m firstly BARDON de Cognac, son of HELIE [II] de Chambarot Seigneur de Cognac & his wife --- (-before 1136).

m secondly (1136) as his second wife, GUILLAUME X Duke of Aquitaine [GUILLAUME VIII Comte de Poitou], son of GUILLAUME IX Duke of Aquitaine, GUILLAUME VII Comte de Poitou & his wife Philippa [Mathilde] de Toulouse (1099-Santiago de Compostela 9 Apr 1137, bur Santiago de Compostela).

m thirdly (after 1137) as his first wife, GUILLAUME d'Angoulême, son of VULGRIN II Comte d'Angoulême & his first wife Pontia de La Marche (-Messina 7 Aug 1179, bur Messina). He succeeded his father in 1140 as GUILLAUME VI "Taillefer" Comte d'Angoulême.
