  Research Notes:

Aimericus Toarcensium vicecomes et dominus” founded the monastery of Saint-Laon de Thouars, with the consent of “uxor mea Agnes”, by charter dated 9 Jan 1117 (presumably O.S.). Primary sources assign two different parentages to the wife of Vicomte Aimery [VI]. The Chronicle of Saint-Maixent records that "Willelmo comiti…" (indicating Guillaume VII Comte de Poitou) & his wife had five daughters, one of whom married "vicecomiti Toarcensi". The source does not name the Vicomte de Thouars in question, but the identity of her husband and her parentage are confirmed by the charter dated 1139 under which [her son] "Guillelmus Toarcensium vicecomes, qui Aimerico Arberti filio successi" confirmed the donation of harvest to Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes, which he had made “adhuc puerulus” with the consent of “matris mee Agnetis et avunculi mei Guillelmi...ducis Aquitanie” when “pater meus” was buried at the abbey. The Gestis Comitum Barcinonensium corroborates her Aquitainian origin when it records that [her second husband] "Raimirus" (referring to Ramiro II King of Aragon) married "sororem comitis Pictaviensis" after leaving his monastery following his accession. It should be noted that Europäische Stammtafeln refers to Agnes as the illegitimate daughter of Duke Guillaume IX by his mistress Amauberge, but the primary source on which this is based has not been identified. The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña states that "Don Ramiro el monje" married "la filla del conde de Piteus". The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris also records the marriage of Ramiro and "the sister of the count of Poitou".... Robert of Torigny records the marriage of "Remelium monachum [filim Santii regis Arragonem]" and "Mathildem matrem Willermi vicecomitis Toarci". The Gestis Comitum Barcinonensium records that "Raimirus" married "sororem comitis Pictaviensis" after leaving his monastery following his accession, corroborating Agnes's Aquitainian parentage. The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña states that "Don Ramiro el monje" married "la filla del conde de Piteus". The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris also records the marriage of Ramiro and "the sister of the count of Poitou". "Ranimirus…rex…cum coniuge mea regina Angnes" donated property to San Pedro de Antefruenzo by charter dated Oct 1136. Agnes's son Guillaume de Thouars ceded rights to her before leaving on crusade in 1147. Her son Geoffroy de Thouars made a donation in 1160 stipulating prayers for his deceased mother. 1

  Marriage Information:

Agnès married Vcte Aimery VI DE THOUARS, son of Geoffroy III DE THOUARS and Ameline, before 9 Jan 1117. (Aimery VI DE THOUARS died in 1127.)

  Marriage Information:

Agnès also married Infante don Ramíro II “el Monje” DE ARAGÓN, son of Infante don Sancho I Ramírez DE ARAGÓN and Felicie DE RAMERUPT, about Nov 1135 in Jaca, Huesca, Aragón, Spain. (Infante don Ramíro II “el Monje” DE ARAGÓN was born in 1086 and died on 16 Aug 1157 in Huesca, Aragón, Spain.)
