    a. There are differences of opinion as to the generational nomenclature of several members of this lineage, but the facts which appear to be accurate are that (1) Bernard I, Count de la Marche, was the father of Almodis de la Marche (sometimes seen as Almodis de la Haute Marche), (2) that this Almodis married three times to the individuals shown above, and (3) that an Adalbert de la Marche was father of the later Almodis who married Roger III the Poitevin. The divergence of opinion occurs with two individuals; (1) that the first Almodis married, as her first husband, Hugh V de Lusignan, not Hugh VI, and (2) that the second Almodis was daughter of Adalbert III, not Adalbert II. See soc.genealogy.medieval for the various posts and sources cited.

    b. She was repudiated by her first husband, Hugh de Lusignan. Her second marriage to Pons III ended in divorce, one source stating said divorce occurred ca. 1051, while another states that she and Pons were still married as late as 1054. She survived her third husband, but was murdered by her stepson in 1071.
