Notes[edit]

  1. ^ It is unclear how many counts named Raymond ruled between Raymond Pons and William III, making the spouses of these women difficult to assign. Adelaide was mother of William III.
  2. ^ Some guess to be Mayor Sánchez of Navarre, the daughter of Sancho III of Navarre, but it seems unlikely that such a prominent origin of the wife of Count Pons should not have been recorded in contemporary sources.
  3. ^ Probably never occurred.
