  Research Notes:

The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the sisters of "comitem Petrum Autissiodorensem et Robertum de Cortenaio et quondam Guillemum" as "Alaydis...alia mater Hugonis de Marchia in Hungaria, tertia Clementia…quarta domna de Charrosio in Bituria, quinta Constantia", specifying that Alix married firstly "comitis Guillemo Ioviniaci" by whom she was mother of "comitem Petrum" and secondly "Engolismensi comitis" by whom she was mother of "Isabellam modernam Anglie reginam". "Willermus comes Joviniaci" donated property to the abbey of Pontigny by charter dated 1180 with the consent of "uxor mea Aaleit et frater meus Gaucherius". “Alix Engolismensis comitissa" swore homage to Philippe II King of France by charter dated 1204.

The necrology of Hôtel-Dieu at Provins records the death "Id Feb" of "Alesis comitissa Angolismensis". A charter dated 13 Jul 1245 records the enquiry into the consanguinity between “dominus Raymundus comes Tholosanus” and “Margaritam filiam domini comitis Marchie”, and states that “dominus Petrus de Cortaniaco” was father of “dominam Adalmues comitissam Engolismensem”, who was mother of “dominam Ysabellem, uxorem…comitis Marchie”. 2
