About Adeliza de Claremont

Adeliza (Adelaide) de Clermont was the daughter of Count de Clermont-Beauvais Hugh and Marguerite de Roucy. (THE AMERICAN GENEALOGIST 57:32; AR. op. cit., p.201)

The news of Richard's death induced Owain Gwynedd, son of Gruffydd ap Cynan, king of Gwynedd to invade his Lordship. In alliance with Gruffydd ap Rhys of Deheubarth he won a crushing victory over the Normans at the Battle of Crug Mawr, just outside Cardigan. The town of Cardigan was taken and burnt, and Richard's widow, Adelize, took refuge in Cardigan Castle, which was successfully defended by Robert fitz Martin. She was rescued by Miles of Gloucester who led an expedition to bring her to safety in England.

Adeliza (Alice) de Clermont married Gilbert fitz Richard, Lord of Clare, son of Richard fitz Gilbert, Justiciar of England and Rohesia Giffard, in England.
