2 Theobald V, count of Blois and seneschal of France (1152-1191).

4 Theobald V married Alice, daughter of king Henry VII by Eleanor of Aquitaine in 1162 (W.L. WARREN Henry II 109) or 1164-5 (JOHN F. BENTON The court of Champagne under Henry the Liberal and countess Marie 30). Their son was named Louis.
