The identity of her husband and her parentage are confirmed by the charter dated 1139 under which (her son) "Guillelmus Toarcensium vicecomes, qui Aimerico Arberti filio successi" confirmed the donation of harvest to Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes, which he had made "adhuc puerulus" with the consent of "matris mee Agnetis et avunculi mei Guillelmi...ducis Aquitanie" when "pater meus" was buried at the abbey [Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes, p. 34]. The Gestis Comitum Barcinonensium corroborates her Aquitainian origin when it records that (her second husband) "Raimirus" (referring to Ramiro II King of Aragon) married "sororem comitis Pictaviensis" after leaving his monastery following his accession [Ex Gestis Comitum Barcinonensium, RHGF XII, p. 379].
Agnes married Ramiro II Sánchez "the Monk" of Aragón, King of Aragón, son of Sancho I Ramírez Rey of Aragon & Navarre, Spain & Navarre and Felicie de Rameru, about 1135. (Ramiro II Sánchez "the Monk" of Aragón, King of Aragón was born on 24 Apr 1080 in Aragón, Espańa, Iberia 180 and died on 16 Aug 1157 in Huesca 180.)
Agnes next married Aimery V Vicometé de Thouars, son of Geoffroy III vicomté de Thouars and Amélie.
