No, as Bernard of Clairvaux had no children; Bernard never married and was a French abbot and a major leader in the revitalization of Benedictine monasticism.

Jacquetta duchess of Bedford was born Jacqueline de Luxembourg and her motto was "Che será será" because she was a witch descended several times from the Mélusine. Could St Bernard de Clairvaux, founder of the Cistercians who kept the Holy Grail, have been amongst her Human ancestors, possibly. Possibly through the Counts of Champagne. Bernard founded the Cistercian Order charged with guarding the Holy Grail and Jacquetta's son, Anthony "Arnite" Lord Rivers and Lord Scales, jousted before Fernando and Ysobel of the combined kingdoms of Castile and Leon as Conde de Escuelas instead of the correct Scalas. Scalas was "Scales" in Castilian Spanish; whereas, Escueles was either "Cauldrons" or "Grails" and one would hope that the Spanish monarchs had good enough translators to know what they were doing. Certainly Jacquetta was directly descended from Hugh de Payen Grand Master of the Templars.
