There's a lot to clean up in this area, in part because parts obviously are confusing to many people, in part because some of the sequences have been revised recently by historians.

For this project we mostly care about the hereditary counts, mostly belonging to the House of Rouergue, not the previous counts appointed by the French kings.

From Wikipedia: The first Counts of Toulouse were the administrators of the city and its environs under the Merovingians. No succession of such royal appointees is known, though a few names survive to the present. With the Carolingians, the appointments of both counts and dukes become more regular and better-known, though the office soon fell out of the orbit of the royal court and became hereditary.

The hereditary Counts of Toulouse ruled the city of Toulouse and its surrounding county from the late 9th century until 1270. The counts and other family members were also at various times Counts of Quercy, Rouergue, Albi, and Nîmes, and Margraves of Gothia and Provence. Also, Raymond IV de St. Gilles founded the Crusader state of Tripoli, and his descendants were counts there...
