About Alix de Montmorency

Alix de Montmorency

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Alix de Montmorency, died Feb 24, 1220-1221. Her parents were Bouchard III de Montmorency and Countess of Hainaut Laurence.

Early life

In 1190 she married Simon de Montfort, 5th Earl of Leicester (1160 – June 25, 1218), son of Simon III de Montfort, who descended from the lords of Montfort l'Amaury near Paris, France.

[edit]Children of Alix and Simon

They left three sons: Their French estates passed to their eldest son, Amaury de Montfort, while their younger son, Simon, eventually gained possession of the earldom of Leicester and played a major role in the reign of Henry III of England. Another son, Guy, was married to Petronille, Countess of Bigorre, on 6 November 1216, but died at the siege of Castelnaudary on 20 July 1220. Their daughter, Petronilla, became an abbess at the Cistercian nunnery of St. Antoine's. Another daughter, Amicia, founded the nunnery at Montargis and died there in 1252.
