Coat of Arms of the Counts of Clermont-en-Beauvaisis.

The Counts of Clermont-en-Beauvasis first appear in the early 11th century. The county was sold by their descendant, Theobald VI of Blois, to the French crown in 1218. It was first granted as an appanage in 1218 to Philip Hurepel; with the extinction of his line, it was granted in 1268 to the House of Bourbon, and was confiscated with the Duchy of Bourbon in 1527.
