He married second (1128), as her second husband, Marguerite de Clermont, widow of CHARLES Count of Flanders, daughter of RENAUD II Comte de Clermont-en-Beauvaisis & his first wife Adelais Ctss de Vermandois. The Vita Karoli Comitis Flandriæ names "nobilem puellam Margaretam, Reinaldi comitis Clarmontensis filiam" as wife of Count Charles, specifying that the marriage took place before his accession.
The De Genere Comitum Flandrensium, Notæ Parisienses refers to (but does not name) the daughter of "comes de Claromonte" and his wife Adela, specifying that she married firstl
Charles Count of Flanders, secondly "Hugo Champdaveine…comes Sancti Pauli" by whom she had "Radulfus Champdaveine et Guod Champdaveine", and thirdly "dominus Balduinus de Encra" by whom she had "domini Galteri de Helli".
The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis refers to, but does not name, the daughter of "comes Rainaldus de Claromonte" and his wife Adelaide as the wife of "comes Karolus Flandre".
It is assumed that Marguerite was born soon after her parents' marriage as her mother was already nearly 40 years old at the time. She married, third, Baudouin d'Encre.
