    Gender Male 
    History Roger, also known as Roger \'the Old\', was the son of Arnaldo, comte de Comminges et de Couserans, and Arsenda, comtesse de Carcassonne et de Rasez. He was count of Carcassonne and Rasez from about the late 950s to his death. It has been assumed that his father was a member of the entourage of dukes of Aquitaine, but this is not certain.

    Before April 970 Roger married Adelais de Pons, widow of Roger de Comminges, with whom he had at least four children of whom Bernardo Roger, Ramón Roger I and Ermensinde would have progeny.

    Dominating the counties of Carcassès and Rasez, Roger extended his possessions significantly throughout the southern county of Toulouse (partly inherited by his son Bernardo Roger, founder of the county of Foix), one third of the county of Comminges, de Volvestre in Couserans as well as Minerve and the Abbey of Caunes. He was in conflict with the count of Toulouse and with Oliva II Carreta, conde de Cerdaña et de Besalú, against whom he won two military victories.   [1
