Eleanor married thridly William Fitz Patrick, Earl of Salisbury, who died in 1196, by whom she was the mother of Ela, Countess of Salisbury who married William Longespee. Eleanor's fourth husband was Gilbert Malmains, who was serving overseas with English forces in 1199 and 1203 but by 1205 had transferred his allegiance to France [Cokayne, Complete Peerage, 11:379].
