About Faydide (Faydite) d'Uzès

[FAYDIVE [Faydide] (-after Jun 1147). She is named in a charter dated 12 Dec 1172 under which Ctss Beatrix agreed terms with "Raymond comte de Toulouse fils de Faidite" for the marriage of her daughter Ermensende and his son "Raymond fils de Constance"[2013]. Raymond Bishop of Viviers called himself "avunculus" of the Comte de Toulouse [Raymond V] in 1160 when writing to Louis VII King of France[2014]. The Histoire Générale de Languedoc identifies the bishop as the son of "Raymond Decan Seigneur d´Usez et de Posquières" and then assumes that Faydive was therefore the bishop´s sister[2015]. However, it is not impossible that the bishop used avunculus in the more general sense of a more distant relative in the preceding generation, especially when it may have been beneficial to him to claim a close family relationship with such an influential person as Raymond V Comte de Toulouse. It is not therefore without doubt that Faydive was the daughter of Raymond Seigneur d´Uzès, especially as it seems surprising that the wife of Alphonse Comte de Toulouse should not have been the member of a more illustrious family. Faydive left France with her husband in Jun 1147 on the Second Crusade[2016]. m (before 16 Sep 1125) ALPHONSE I JOURDAIN Comte de Toulouse, son RAYMOND IV Comte de Toulouse & his third wife doña Elvira Alfonso of Castille (castle of Mount Pèlerin near Tripoli 1103-Caesarea 16 Apr 1148).] (Foundation for Medieval Genealogy)
