Character description

Princess Alys (or Alaïs) of France, Countess of the Vexin in her own right (c. 1160–1220), was a daughter of King Louis VII and sister of King Philippe II Auguste. Her name is very similar to that of her older half-sister Alix (daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine). She was raised in England as the fiancée of the future King Richard I, but the marriage never took place. She eventually married William III Talvas, Count of Ponthieu.
