  • Notes 
    • Also called William VI, Guilhelm VI, etc. According to Wikipedia, he "succeeded his father in the lordship of Montpellier in 1121, while still a minor, under his mother's guardianship. He suppressed a revolt of the bourgeoisie in 1143 and participated in several military campaigns of the Reconquista in Spain (1134, 1146–47). He also increased the public character of the lordship in Montpellier and supported the growth of its trade."

      "Guillem VI was already a widower and became a monk at Grandselve after making his will." [Peter Stewart, citation details below.]

      "Bernard's eldest brother, William VI of Montpellier, became a Cistercian monk in 1149." [James Westfall Thompson, citation details below]
