      Biography
      Basilia is the illegitimate daughter of Richard "Strongbow" de Clare by unknown mistress. She married Robert de Quenci, Constable of Leinster.[1]

      Research Notes
      See comments - the profiles attached as husbands do not appear to be hers. One source (Cawley's MedLands) shows Raymond & Geoffrey were her aunt's husbands (the second as a maybe).[2]

      Various online sources show Basile to have married:[3]
      Robert de Quincy in Leinster, 1169
      Raymond Fitzgerald in 1174
      Geoffrey Fitzrobert in 1188
      Her father's Wikipedia article lists one husband: Robert de Quenci, Constable of Leinster.[1]

      ? See Cawley's entry for Gilbert Clare (accessed 4 August 2019): "The primary source which confirms her [Basilia's] second marriage has not been identified." Cawley does not name the illegitimate daughter of Gilbert's son Richard who married Robert de Quency.
