Clementia was the eighth of nine children. Her younger sister was Judith of Habsburg. Judith, who married Wenceslaus II of Bohemia, was the mother of ten children; among them were Wenceslaus III of Bohemia, Anne of Bohemia (1290–1313), duchess of Carinthia and Elisabeth of Bohemia (1292–1330), duchess of Luxembourg. Clementia's daughter Clemence was the mother of John I of France, the baby king. John I died when he was only five days old so was succeeded by his paternal uncle Philip.
Clementia and Charles Martel had three children:
- Charles I of Hungary, became King of Hungary in 1308, married three times, his second wife was Beatrix of Luxembourg and his third wife was Elisabeth of Poland. All of his surviving children were with Elisabeth.
- Beatrice of Hungary (1290-1343), the wife of John II of Viennois
- Clemetina of Hungary, the second wife of Louis X of France and mother of John I of France, the baby king.
It is believed that Clementia died in 1293, in relation to the birth of her youngest daughter and namesake, Clementia. Others  argue that she died in 1295, months after Charles Martel. She is buried in Naples.
Queen of Hungary?
Charles Martel was set up by Pope Nicholas IV and the ecclesiastical party as the titular King of Hungary (1290–1295) as successor of his maternal uncle, the childless Ladislaus IV of Hungary against whom the Pope had already earlier declared a crusade.
He never managed to govern the Kingdom of Hungary, where an agnate of the Árpád dynasty, his cousin Andrew III of Hungary actually ruled that period. Charles Martel was, however, successful in asserting his claims in parts of Croatia, a kingdom then in personal union with Hungary.
