     William III of Ponthieu was born circa 1095.2 He was the son of Robert de Bellême, 3rd Earl of Shrewsbury and Agnes of Ponthieu.1 He married Ala of Burgandy.2 He died on June 20, 1172.2
He assumed the county of Ponthieu some time before 1111, upon the death of his mother. His father escaped capture at the battle of Tinchebrai in 1106; but later, as envoy for King Louis of France, he went to the English court and was arrested by King Henry of England and was never released from prison. William was naturally driven by this to oppose King Henry, and his allegiance to count Geoffrey of Anjou caused Henry to seize certain of William's castles in Normandy.2
