John thanks grandly for this. I feel your presentat. of the
Raoul/Ralph relationship is cool -- pitched just right -- and I love
the Ventadour connection, which I'd never seen. (Always been a
distant fan of Ebles II.)

(I must admit that note 19 [Paul Theroff, "De Geneva Family,
Counts of Toulouse," Paul Theroff's Dynastic Genealogy Tables,] didn't
actually yield the Faye/Ventadour info I'd anticipated - maybe
Paul T's changed his text since you were there.)

As to that moussaka - it's the raki that's got me singing like Ebles.

BTW - I think your proposal on the mysterious Hawise -- <The Kindred
of Hugh le Despenser (revisited)> -- is intriguing....

Cheers ever,
