      "Raymond VI (Occitan: Ramon; October 27, 1156 - August 2, 1222) was Count of Toulouse and Marquis of Provence from 1194 to 1222. He was also (as Raymond IV) Count of Melgueil from 1173 to 1190."

      "In October 1196, Richard married his sister Joanna to Count Raymond VI of Toulouse, the son of Raymond V- whom Eleanor had regarded as a usurper- by Constance of France. The marriage took place in Rouen in the presence of Queen Berengaria, Joanna's close friend, and finally put an end to the ancient dynastic feud between the counts of Toulouse and the ducal House of Aquitaine. Eleanor now happily ceded her claims to Toulouse to her daughter, whose son Raymond, born in 1197, would one day inherit the title. King Richard gave Joanna Agen and Quercy for her dower."

    7. [S422] Richard I (English Monarchs Series), John Gillingham, (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1999), 306-7.
      "By October 1196 all was settled. Raymond VI came to Rouen and there married Richard's sister Joan. Richard renounced his claim to Toulouse, restored the Quercy and gave them the county of Agen as Joan's dowry. * * * At least one English historian, William of Newburgh, recognized the significance of this marriage alliance. It marked, he said, the end of forty years of exhausting war, the end of the old hatred - and it meant that whereas Richard had been fighting on three fronts, against France, Toulouse and Brittany, he could now focus all his attention on the struggle with King Phillip."
