    • William married twice, but produced no surviving male progeny:

      Firstly in September 1214, aged 24, William married Alice de Bethune (d. pre-1215), daughter of his father's ally Baldwin of Bethune. She was murdered while pregnant with her son. No surviving male progeny resulted, as her son died as she did.[2] There are no existing sources to prove this, they simply state she died nine months after the marriage. Shortly before her death she was involved in a land dispute, leading to theories she was murdered. [3]

      Secondly in 1224 William married Eleanor of Leicester, youngest daughter of King John by Isabella of Angoul„eme, thereby strengthening the Marshal family's connection with the Plantagenets. No surviving progeny resulted.
