  • Notes 
    • In January 1169, Louis and Henry II of England signed a contract for th e marriage between Alys and Henry's son Richard. The 8 year-old Alys w as then sent to England as Henry's ward. In 1177, Cardinal Peter of Saint Chrysogonus, on behalf of Pope Alexand er III, threatened to place England's continental possessions under an i nterdict if Henry did not proceed with the marriage. There were wides pread rumors that Henry had not only made Alys his mistress, but that s he had borne him a child. Henry died in 1189. Richard married Berengari a of Navarre on 12 May 1191 while still officially engaged to Alys.
