  • Notes 
    • Seigneur de Roquefeuil, de Combret; Seignur de Algues; Baron d'Aumelas, du Pouget, de Vendemian. Contor de Nant. Appointed captain of the city of Montpellier by the Seneschal of Carcassonne.

      From Leo van de Pas:

      In 1346 Arnaud is recorded as fighting under the leadership of the duc de Bourbon against the English at Agenois. In 1369 he commanded the defence of Rouergue during the Gascon war, along with Guillem de Roquefeuil.

      About 1394 the barony of Pouget was sequestered by the crown as Arnaud had neglected to pay homage for it to King Charles VI 'the Mad'. The citizens of Pouget took advantage of this to withhold from him their oath of allegiance, claiming that that the kings of Mallorca were their true lords. After Arnaud rendered his homage to Charles for the barony its citizens persisted with their rejection of his authority. The seneschal of Carcassonne found in favour of Arnaud, but the citizens appealed to the governor of Languedoc, who found in their favour and continued to support them. Arnaud then brought the matter before the parliament in Paris, but he died about 1400 without recovering his properties in or his rights to the barony of Pouget. Arnaud named as his heir his daughter Catherine, wife of Jean de Blanquefort-Pujols, seigneur de Blanquefort-sur-Briolance.
