RAOUL "le Roux" de Clermont ([before 1140]-killed in battle Acre 15 Oct 1191). It should be noted that the Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis names "Guidonem et Rainaldum et Hugonem archidiaconum Metensem et Galterum cum aliis utriusque sexus" as children of "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" and his wife "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns" but makes no mention of Raoul[98], although other sources quoted below confirm his parentage. The chronology of his life suggests the unlikelihood that he was born later than [1140]. Comte de Clermont. "Radulfus…comes Clarimontis" donated property to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp with the consent of "Adelidis uxor mea et Matildis soror mea…fratris mei Symon et Stephanus" by charter dated 1162, witnessed by "Guido Campus Avene nepos meus"[99]. Connétable de France 1164. Louvet notes a donation to the priory of Gournay-sur-Aronde made by “Rainal Comte de Clermont et Clemence sa femme” which was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse”[100]. Mathon says that Raoul, still childless, made this supplementary donation in 1165 in the hope of the birth of an heir[101]. "R…comes Clarimontis et dominus Brituliensis…et Aeliz comitissam uxorem meam" confirmed the donation to the church of Breteuil by "Sangalo de Garda Malgerii, Henricus filius eius" by undated charter, witnessed by "Albericus Domni Martini comes et Mahaux soror mea, Domni Martini comitissa, Rainaldus castellanus Britulii…"[102]. “Radulfus comes Clarimontis” donated rights “in molendino de Levrel” to Jumièges by charter dated [5 Apr 1170/27 Mar 1171], subscribed by “Symone fratre comitis...”[103]. “Radulfus...comes Clarimontis et dominus Britolii” reached agreement with Lannoy abbey over “feodis meis in Montania”, with the consent of “uxore mea comitissa Aeliza et filia mea Katerina et fratre meo Symone cum uxore sua Matilde”, by charter dated 1174[104]. "Radulfus…comes Claromontensis" donated the church of Saint-Evremond de Creil to the priory of Saint-Leu d’Esserent, for "progenitorum meorum qui in monasterio…sepulti sunt", with the consent of "fratribus meis Hugone primicerio Metensis ecclesiæ…ecclesiæ de Credulio abate, et Simone milite fratre meo et dominum meum Radulfum abbatem Cluniacensem atque…domnum Rainaldum consanguineum meum eiusdem monasterii tunc priorem" [Raoul de Sully abbé de Cluny, Renaud de Haut-Pierre, prieur de Saint-Leu], by charter dated 24 Feb 1176[105]. "Radulphus…comes Clarimontis" donated harvest from property "apud Credulium" to Paris Hôtel-Dieu, with the consent of "uxore mea comitissa Aaliz et filiabus meis…Catalina et Aaliz", by charter dated 1177[106]. "Radulfus comes Claromonensis" donated property to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp with the consent of "Adelidis uxoris mee et filiarum mearum Katerine et Adelidis" by charter dated 1178, subscribed by "Symonis fratris mei, Petri Ambianensis nepotis mei"[107]. "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated property to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp with the consent of "uxore mea Aelis, filio que meo Philippo et Katarina filia mee" by charter dated 1182[108]. "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[109]. The Chronicon Hanoniense names "Radulphus comes Clarimontis" among those who died in Palestine in [1191], presumably at the siege of Acre[110]. m (before 1162) ALIX de Breteuil, daughter of VALERAN [III] Seigneur de Breteuil-en-Beauvaisis & his first wife Holdeburge dame d'Ailly-sur-Noye et de Tartigny (-after [1196/97], bur Variville). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitissam Clarimontis Belvacensis et uxorem Symonis Clarimontis et Emiciam" as the three daughters of "Alaydis [filia comitem de Brana Robertum domnum]" & her first husband[111], although it appears chronologically impossible for Alix, wife of Raoul Comte de Clermont, to have been the daughter of Valeran [III] by his second wife. The correct parentage of Alix and her sister Mathilde is confirmed by the charter dated 1153 which records that “Galerannum de Britoglio” donated property at Champmartin at Rueil-sur-Bèche to Froidmont abbey, with the consent of “Hugone fratre suo...et Holdeburge uxore Galeranni, Aalsi et Mathilde filiabus eius”[112]. Lépinois dates her marriage to [1153/55], but this appears to be little more than guesswork[113]. "Adelidis uxor …" consented to the donation by "Radulfus…comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1162[114]. "R…comes Clarimontis et dominus Brituliensis…et Aeliz comitissam uxorem meam" confirmed the donation to the church of Breteuil by "Sangalo de Garda Malgerii, Henricus filius eius" by undated charter, witnessed by "Albericus Domni Martini comes et Mahaux soror mea, Domni Martini comitissa, Rainaldus castellanus Britulii…"[115]. “Radulfus...comes Clarimontis et dominus Britolii” reached agreement with Lannoy abbey over “feodis meis in Montania”, with the consent of “uxore mea comitissa Aeliza et filia mea Katerina et fratre meo Symone cum uxore sua Matilde”, by charter dated 1174[116]. "Radulphus…comes Clarimontis" donated harvest from property "apud Credulium" to Paris Hôtel-Dieu, with the consent of "uxore mea comitissa Aaliz et filiabus meis…Catalina et Aaliz", by charter dated 1177[117]. "Adelidis uxoris mee…" consented to two donations by "Radulfus comes Claromonensis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charters dated 1178[118]. "Uxore mea Aelis…" consented to the donation by "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1182[119]. "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[120]. "Aelidis comitissa Claromontis et domina Britulli" confirmed the donation to the church of Breteuil by "Hugo de Garda" by charter dated 1194, witnessed by "Radulphus de Ailli nepos meus…Manasses de Conti…" and confirmed another donation by "Hugo de Crepicordio frater patris mei Galeranni" for the soul of "Petronille filie sue" and confirmed after his death by "Heverardus eius filius successor et heres"[121]. Comte Raoul & his wife had four children:

a) CATHERINE de Clermont (after 1165-19/20 Sep [1212/23]). “Radulfus...comes Clarimontis et dominus Britolii” reached agreement with Lannoy abbey over “feodis meis in Montania”, with the consent of “uxore mea comitissa Aeliza et filia mea Katerina et fratre meo Symone cum uxore sua Matilde”, by charter dated 1174[122]. "Radulphus…comes Clarimontis" donated harvest from property "apud Credulium" to Paris Hôtel-Dieu, with the consent of "uxore mea comitissa Aaliz et filiabus meis…Catalina et Aaliz", by charter dated 1177[123]. "…Filiarum mearum Katerine et Adelidis" consented to two donations by "Radulfus comes Claromonensis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charters dated 1178[124]. "…Filio que meo Philippo et Katarina filia mee" consented to the donation by "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1182[125]. "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[126]. "Catharina uxore…" consented to the donation by "Louis C. de Blois et de Clermont" to the abbey of l'Etoile by charter dated 1190[127]. She succeeded as Ctss de Clermont in 1192. "Katerina uxore mea…" consented to the donation by "Ludovicus comes Blesensis et Clarimontis" to Hôtel-Dieu, Châteaudun by charter dated 27 Jan 1196[128]. "Katherina uxore mea…" consented to the confirmation by "Ludovicus Blesensis et Clarimontis comes" of the donation by "Gaufridus vicecomes Castriduni" to Hôtel-Dieu, Châteaudun by charter dated Mar 1200[129]. "Katerina Blesensis et Claromontensis comitisse" consented to a donation to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1202[130]. "Katherina uxore mea…" consented to the donation by "Ludovicus Blesensis et Clarimontis comes…Iherosolimam proficiscens" to Hôtel-Dieu, Châteadun by charter dated May 1202[131]. "Katelina Blesis et Clarimuntis comitissa" took "villam Ceresium" into her protection by charter dated 1206 which names "Theobaldus comes felicis memorie et eius filius comes Ludovicus dominus meus"[132]. The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "XII Kal Oct" of "Katerina…comitissa Blesensis et Clarimontis", also naming "viro suo…comite Ludovico…Theobaldus comes filius suus"[133]. m (1184) LOUIS de Blois, son of THIBAUT V "le Bon" Comte de Blois & his second wife Alix de France (-killed in battle near Adrianople 15 Apr 1205).

"…Filiarum mearum Katerine et Adelidis" consented to two donations by "Radulfus comes Claromonensis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charters dated 1178[135].

c) MATHILDE de Clermont (-1200 or after). "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" donated part of Hez wood to the church of Froidmont by charter dated 1190 witnessed by "Alberico comite de Dammartin et Renaldo filio eius…Aelidis uxor mea et filie mee Cathelina et Mathildis…Hugo frater meus primicerius ecclesie Mettensis…"[136].

d) PHILIPPE de Clermont ([after 1178]-[1182/92]). He was presumably born after 1178 as, unlike his two older sisters, he is not named in the charter of that date which is quoted above. "…Filio que meo Philippo et Katarina filia mee" consented to the donation by "Radulfus comes Clarimontis" to the abbey of Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp by charter dated 1182[137].
