A friend of Mine at the Sorbone University anthropology department has brought attention to me of the potential that Decendents of a French aristocratic family might be existing in Jordan in the Middle East, they are the members of the Raimouny family... appreciate any assistance to the validity of this tale or any relavent geneology tests. what I know is that they can be the decendents of the french Crusader Count Raymond IV de St. Giles, the Count of Toulouse and the Patriarch of Tripoli during the Crusader Rule of that region(aroung 500 years ago) sources tell me that there is now a village that holds his name in the north of Jordan pertaining to the place where it is said he was captured in the battle of Hitten when Saladin seized control of Jerusalem and Islamified the region again.
