Aymer of Angoulême

Aymer I 1160 - 1202, the last Taillefer Count of Angoulême.

History

Aymer (or Aymar), born: c.1160 - died: 16 Jun 1202, is the third of the 6 children of William VI de Taillefer, the Count of Angoulême, and Marguerite of Turenne. His two elder brothers, Vulgrin and William VII became the Counts of Angoulême, respectively, after the death of their father in 1179 (Vulgrin first, then William VII succeeding in 1181). Aymer succeeded his brother in 1186 as the Count of Angoulême.

In that same year, he married Alice of Courtenay, the daughter of Peter of Courtenay(the son of Louis VI of France) and Elizabeth of the House of Courtenay. In 1188, they had a daughter who would play an important role in the history of England and France: Isabella of Angoulême.

Aymer died in Limoges, France on June 16th, 1202. His daughter succeeded him as the Countess of Angoulême but she was not formally recognized until 1206. Aymer is the last of the Taillefer male lineage with the Count of Angoulême title, as his daughter married Hugh X of Lusignan who earned the right to the title in 1220.
