  • Notes 
    • Comte de Melgueil. In 1132 he abandoned the world and entered the abbey of St. Chaffre-en-Velai.

      According to Histoire Générale de Languedoc (citation details below) he made his will in 1152, being in bed sick, in the presence of his grandmother Almodis de Toulouse, who died in the same year.
