Raoul III de Nesle

Ralph the Good (or Raoul le Bon) (died 4 January 1235), also known as Raoul III de Nesle, was the Count of Soissons from 1180.[1] He was the third son of Raoul II de Nesle and Gertrude de Montaigu.

In 1178 Ralph and his elder brother John subscribed to a charter of the eldest brother, Conon, then count, donating property to Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp. When Alberic de Trois-Fontaines wrote his chronicle, he could refer to count Ralph of Soissons qui adhuc vivit (who still lives). But he later records his death in 1235. In 1184 Ralph became castellan of Noyon.

Ralph was the fourth husband of Alix (born 1145/6), daughter of Robert I of Dreux. She confirmed donations to Notre-Dame d'Ourscamp and Tremblay with him, and died between January 1205 and March 1210. Ralph was briefly married to a woman named Yolanda before taking as his third wife Ada d'Avesnes, widow of Henry, Count of Grandpré. By his first wife he had daughters named Gertrude and Alienor. By his second wife he had a son, John, who succeeded him, and another son, Ralph, who was probably a trouvère.
