Renaud IV de Pons was born about 1291, son of Geffroi de Pons, seigneur de Ribérac, vicomte de Turenne, and Isabelle de Rodez, vicomtesse de Carlat. A powerful feudal lord, he was seigneur de Pons, vicomte de Carlat, vicomte deTurenne, and seigneur de Riberac et de Montfort.

On 26 January 1319 at Casteljaloux he married Jeanne d'Albret, daughter of Amanieu VII d'Albret, sire d'Albret de Tartas et de Maremme, and Rose de Bourg. They had at least two children, of whom Renaud V would have progeny.

On the Tuesday after Easter 1319 he confirmed the annuity given by his mother Isabelle to Sybille Naucaze, daughter of Naucaze Geraud, the bailiff of Carlat.

He received many tributes from his vassals of Carladès between 1321 and 1335. On the Wednesday after Pentecost in 1335 he came to terms with the commander of Carlat, Pierre du Vernet of the Order of St.John of Jerusalem, whoacknowledged that he had received from Renaud all the possessions of his commandery throughout the jurisdiction of the seneschal of Rodez and the bailliwick of Auvergne.

In 1338 Renaud fought at Montendre at the head of 210 sergeants at arms.

In 1343 he sold to Astorg Aurillac, baron de Conros, all the tolls of the river Cere from Oradoux-de-Vezac to Laroquebrou. He used the price of this sale to purchase the château de Blaye. He excused Amblard IV, seigneur de Dienne,and his successors, from giving up to him the keys to his castle, as they were obliged to do under certain circumstances. He transferred to Geraud de Gagnac many annuities in the parishes of Prunet, Labrousse,Teissières-les-Bouliès and Ytrac.

On 1 March 1343 Astorg Aurillac paid tribute to Renaud for his castles of Conros, Labastide and Viescamp, and their estates.

It appears that at one stage Renaud was in conflict with King Philippe VI, and that in 1340 he negotiated secretly with the king of England, under whose protection he placed all his lands. However by 1345 he had renewed hisallegiance to France, and he then served the king in Languedoc and the Saintonge.

He was killed with his son at the Battle of Poitiers on 19 December 1356.
