About Clémence de Poitou

Clementia of Aquitaine

Clémence d'Aquitaine (1060 – 4 January 1142) was a daughter of Pierre-Guillaume VII, duke of Aquitaine, and his wife Ermesinde.

She married firstly around 1075 to Conrad I of Luxembourg (1040 † 1086), count of Luxembourg, and had:

   Henri III († 1086), comte à Luxembourg
   Konrad, cité en 1080
   Mathilde (1070 † ), married Godefroy (1075 † ), comte de Bleisgau
   Rodolphe († 1099), abbot of Saint-Vannes at Verdun
   Ermesinde (1075 † 1143), married
       in 1096 to Albert II († 1098), count of Egisheim and of Dagsbourg,
       in 1101 to Godefroy (1067 † 1139), count of Namur
   William I (1081 † 1131), count of Luxembourg

Widowed, she remarried to Gerard I († 1129), count of Wassenberg and of Guelders. This count married twice and had two children, neither of whose mothers has been identified. These two children, perhaps born to Clémence, were :

   Yolande, married around 1107 to Baldwin III († 1120), count of Hainaut, then to Godefroy de Bouchain, vicomte of Valenciennes
   Gérard II († 1131), count of Guelders and of Wassenberg


NOTE:Erfgename van Longwy; vrouwe van Gleiberg; gravin van Wassenberg. Zij is aanwezig bij de stichting van het Münster te Luxemburg op 6 juli 1083 en sticht, met toestemming van haar kinderen Willem en Ermesinde, als 'gravin van Gleiberg' het klooster Schiffenberg bij Giessen (1129) en meldt de stichting nogmaals in 1141.

Bij haar overlijden was ze bijna 90 jaar oud!
