INTRODUCTION

 

 

The county of Bar was part of the territory of the duchy of Upper Lotharingia and as such lay within the jurisdiction of the empire, although it was later incorporated into the kingdom of France.  French influence in the area was always strong, as shown by the number of French or Lotharingian marriages of members of the comital family and the correspondingly small number of connections with German noble families.  Otto I King of Germany temporarily ceded the area of Bar to Louis IV "d'Outremer" King of the West Franks in 942[1].  It reverted to imperial control in [951/59], maybe forming part of the dowry of Béatrix de France [Capet] when she married Frédéric [Wigeriche] who was installed as duke of Upper Lotharingia by King Otto in 959.  Duke Frédéric constructed the castle of Bar on the banks of the river Ornain opposite the town of Bar.  Its construction triggered protests from King Louis IV to King Otto, the former considering the area within his sphere of influence, and from the Bishop of Toul, who considered that part of the land belonged to one of his churches[2]

 

The comtes de Mousson inherited the castle of Bar from the family of the dukes of Upper Lotharingia on the marriage in 1038 of Sophie, co-heiress of Frédéric II Duke of Upper Lotharingia, to Louis Comte de Mousson (see Chapter 1).  It was not until the first quarter of the 12th century that the family adopted their name from this castle (see Chapter 2). 

 

Robert I Comte de Bar was created Marquis de Pont-à-Mousson by imperial order dated 13 Mar 1354.  He adopted the title Duke of Bar around the same time, but this appears to have been a usurpation[3] (see Chapter 3).    

 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    COMTES de MOUSSON

 

 

LOUIS, son of RICHWIN Comte de Charpeigne & his wife Mathilde --- (-after 1019).  A charter dated 1019, which records an agreement between Berthold Bishop of Toul and "Olricus miles", is subscribed by "Riquini comitis, Ludovicus comitis patris eius, item Ludovici filii eius, Theodorici fratris eius"[4]

same person as…?  LOUIS ([1015]-[29 Aug 1071/1076]).  This co-identity is proposed by Europäische Stammtafeln[5].  It is true that it presents no chronological difficulties, but it is not the only theory which has been proposed to explain the origin of Louis Comte de Mousson.  Comte de Mousson.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comiti Montionis Ludovico" when recording his marriage[6].  The Herimanni Augiensis Chronicon records that "Ludowicus comes" expelled "Reginoldum principem, reginæ Agnetis avunculum, sed Heinrico regi inimicum" (Renaud Comte Palatin de Bourgogne) from "castellum…Mons Piligardæ" (Montbéliard/Mömpelgard)[7].  He had possessions in the south of Alsace and around Hagenau, covering the southern part of the county of Sundgau as far as Basel and including Héricourt, Belfort, Altkirch and Ferrette, as well as the château de Montbéliard temporarily[8].  "Gerardi Ducis, Othonis Marchionis, Ludovici Comitis de Montione, Renaldi Comitis Tullensis, Hamonis de Brixeio, Milonis filii Rodulphi de Gondricurte" witnessed the bull of Pope Leo IX dated 1051 which confirms the church of Saint-Diey[9].  He was in dispute with Gérard d'Alsace Duke of Lower Lotharingia in 1057 and 1063 over the inheritance of Pope Leo IX[10].  "Heinricus…rex" founded a market at "in villa Villach…in comitatu Francisci Ludewici comitis" by charter dated 8 Feb 1060[11].  "Heinricus…rex" granted property "in pagis Cletgowe et Hegowe in comitatibus Gerungi et Lodawici comitis" to "comiti Eberhardo" by charter dated 1067[12].  "Heinricus…rex" donated property "in villa Chambo in pago Einriche in comitatu Lodowici comitis" to St Suitbertsstift at Kaiserswerth by charter dated 1067[13].  He appears to have challenged the succession of Thierry Duke of Lorraine in 1070, claiming the title himself[14].  Comte Louis is last recorded 29 Aug 1071 in a declaration of his son Frederic, but died before 1076 when his widow invested Sigefroi as abbot of Saint-Mihiel[15]

m (1038) SOPHIE of Upper Lotharingia, daughter of FREDERIC II Duke of Upper Lotharingia & his wife Mathilde of Swabia ([1018]-21 Jan 1093).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitissa Barri…Sophia" as wife of "comiti Montionis Ludovico", specifying that she was sister of "Beatrix marchisa" but incorrectly naming "Sigefridi fratris Frederici" as their father[16].  Her share of the succession of her brother consisted of the abbey of Saint-Mihiel and its dependencies, the castles of Bar, Amance and Mousson, the southern part of her family's ancestral lands[17].  She entered into possession of these lands at the time of her marriage[18].  Pibon Bishop of Toul granted privileges to the priory of Laître sous Amance, founded by "comitissæ Sophiæ", by charter dated 1076 under which she declared the castle of Amance belonged to "Theodericus dux, comitissæ avus" who had inherited it from "comiti Folmaro in Asmantia"[19].  "Sophia…comitissa" donated Betlémont and Anseville to the abbey of Saint-Mihiel, with the consent of "filio meo Friderico…filii mei Theodorici comitis…fratrum suorum" by undated charter[20].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy records the death "21 Jan" of "Sophia comitissa"[21]

Comte Louis & his wife had seven children, all of whom are named (as deceased) in the 8 Mar 1105 charter of the couple's daughter-in-law Ermentrude de Bourgogne, listed in the following order:

1.         BRUNO (-young).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[22]

2.         THIERRY ([1045]-1/2 Jan 1103, bur Autun Cathedral).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Theodericum" as son of "comiti Montionis Ludovico" and his wife Sophie[23].  He was invested as Comte de Verdun by Richer Bishop of Verdun.

3.         LOUIS (-after 1080).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[24].  Seigneur de Commercy.  According to Jean de Bayon, "Ludovicum…Sophiæ veteris filium" was captured by "Gerardus comes frater Theodorici Lotharingiæ ducis germanus" in [1071] and held captive for a long time[25].  Louis witnessed the charter dated 1080 under which his mother Sophie ruled on the dispute between the abbot of Saint-Mihiel and Boson de Viocourt, avoué of Houécourt[26]

4.         FREDERIC (-29 Jun 1091, bur [Canossa]).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[27].  The mid-12th century Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Theodericum de Monceons et Fredericum, fratres" as sons of "Sofia [filia Friderici ducis]"[28].  "Frederici filii Lodoici comitis…" subscribed the charter dated 29 Aug 1071 under which [his maternal aunt] "Beatrix comitissa ac ducatrix filia bon. mem. Federici ducis…ex natione mea lege vivere Saliga" donated property, for the souls of "Bonifacii marchionis atque ducis quodam viri mei…et…Matildæ filiæ meæ et…Gatefridi ducis quodam viri mei et…quodam Beatricis neptis meæ" to "monasterio…Frassinorum"[29].  Graf, Herr von Lützelburg [Lutzelbourg] und im Hagenau.  A powerful lord in Swabia, he supported Rudolf von Rheinfelden as anti-king of Germany.  He arrived in Italy in 1070, accompanying his maternal aunt Beatrix Signora di Canossa and her daughter Matilda later Ctss of Tuscany who benefited from his military help during the succeeding years[30].  He was installed [17 Sep1079/May 1080] as Marchese di Susa by his [future] wife's paternal grandmother[31].  This presumably took place after the death in Jan 1080 of his wife's uncle Amédée II Comte de Savoie, who had succeeded his older brother as Marchese di Susa in 1078.  The Chronicon of Bernold records that "Frederici comitis" the son of "domnæ Sophiæ et Ludowici comitis" died "1091 III Kal Iul" and was buried "sancti Pauli"[32].  Emperor Heinrich IV captured the marquisate of Tuscany by force in 1092.  m (Turin May 1080) AGNES de Maurienne, daughter of PIERRE I Comte de Savoie & his wife Agnès de Poitou ([1066/70]-after 13 Mar 1110).  "Adalasia comitissa cum nuru sua Agneta et filia eius Agnete" donated property to "ecclesiæ S. Mariæ…Astensis episcopatus" by charter dated 18 Jun 1089[33].  "Agnes filia Petri marchionis et relicta olim Friderici" donated property to the monastery of Cavorre by charter dated 1091[34].  Her birth date is estimated from the marriage date of her parents, her mother's estimated birth date, and the fact that Agnes herself gave birth to three children before her husband died in 1091. She became a nun after her husband died.  She was still alive in 1100[35].  Pope Pascal II confirmed a donation to the monastery of Fruttuaria San Benedetto by "Agnete comitissa, Petri marchionis filia" by charter dated 13 Mar 1110[36].  Marchese Friedrich & his wife had three children:

a)         PIERRE (-before 1140).  The Genealogia B. Arnulphi Metensis episcopi records that "Fridericus frater Theodorici de Monçonz" was father of "Petrum de Lucelenborc"[37].  [Comte] de Lutzelbourg in Alsace.  He succeeded his maternal great-grandmother as Marchese di Susa in Dec 1091[38], as a minor although his regent has not been identified.  He was expelled from Susa in 1092 by Emperor Heinrich IV, who claimed the territory by right of his late first wife, who had been Peter's maternal aunt.  The Chronicon of Bernold records that in 1092 "in Longobardia Chounradus filius Henrici regis" captured property of "Adalheidæ Taurinensis comitissæ" which the latter had given to her "nepos filius Frederici comitis", without naming him[39].  He retired to Lutzelbourg.  A charter dated 1126 notes the foundation of “S. Johannis prope Tabernas” by “comes…Petrus de Luzelburg”, with the consent of “coniuge sua Itta et unico filio Regenhaldo[40].  [m firstly ---.  There is no proof of this first marriage apart from the fact that Renaud is described as Pierre´s only son by his wife named Ita in another source (see below), and that Renaud names Henri as his brother.  It is possible that Henri was illegitimate.]  m [secondly] ITA, daughter of ---.  The Notitia Fundationis Cellæ Sancti Iohannis records a donation of "comes Petrus de Luzelburg, coniuge sua Itha et unico filio Regenhaldo" dated 1126 "in villa Meyenhemswilre"[41].  A charter dated 1126 notes the foundation of “S. Johannis prope Tabernas” by “comes…Petrus de Luzelburg”, with the consent of “coniuge sua Itta et unico filio Regenhaldo[42].  Pierre & his [first wife] had [one child]:

i)          [HENRI (-1148).  "…advocatus eiusdem civitatis Heinricus et patruus eius Sifridus" subscribed the charter dated 20 Jan 1129 under which Frédéric Comte de Ferrette and Thierry II Comte de Montbéliard granted the right not to be judged by foreign tribunals to the citizens of Strasbourg[43].  Renaud, son of Pierre and brother of Henri avoué of Strasbourg, donated Lambach to the church of Saint-Martin[44].  As mentioned above, it is possible that Henri was illegitimate.  It is also possible that he was the uterine brother of Renaud, born from an earlier marriage of Renaud´s mother Ita.] 

Pierre & his [second] wife had one child:

ii)         RENAUD de Lutzelbourg (before 1126-after [1150]).  The Notitia Fundationis Cellæ Sancti Iohannis records a donation of "comes Petrus de Luzelburg, coniuge sua Itha et unico filio Regenhaldo" dated 1126 "in villa Meyenhemswilre"[45].  A charter dated 1126 notes the foundation of “S. Johannis prope Tabernas” by “comes…Petrus de Luzelburg”, with the consent of “coniuge sua Itta et unico filio Regenhaldo[46].  Comte de Lutzelbourg.  Renaud, son of Pierre and brother of Henri avoué of Strasbourg, donated Lambach to the church of Saint-Martin[47].  The Gesta Episcoporum Mettensium records that "castrum…Lucelnburch" transferred to Etienne Bishop of Metz "iure hereditario" in [1150] but does not name Renaud[48]

b)         BRUNO ([1086]-).  Schoepflin names "Brunon de Lutzelbourg, doyen de l´Eglise de Strasbourg, en 1108" and "Sigefrid Vogt de Strasbourg, en 1116 et 1119" as younger brothers of "Pierre comte de Lutzelbourg" in his genealogical table but does not cite the sources to which these dates refer[49].  Szabolcs de Vajay identifies him as the grantee in the following charter[50]: “Berta...regina” donated “tres campos...et uno orto” in Huesca to “don Bruno mea magistro” by charter dated Jul [1101][51].  This may appear unlikely considering that Bruno cannot have been born much earlier than [1086] and therefore would have been no more than 10 years old at the most at the time of King Pedro's marriage to Queen Berta in 1097.  Canon, later doyen at Strasbourg cathedral[52]

c)         SIGEFROI (-after 20 Jan 1129).  "…advocatus eiusdem civitatis Heinricus et patruus eius Sifridus" subscribed the charter dated 20 Jan 1129 under which Frédéric Comte de Ferrette and Thierry II Comte de Montbéliard granted the right not to be judged by foreign tribunals to the citizens of Strasbourg[53].  Schoepflin names "Brunon de Lutzelbourg, doyen de l´Eglise de Strasbourg, en 1108" and "Sigefrid Vogt de Strasbourg, en 1116 et 1119" as younger brothers of "Pierre comte de Lutzelbourg" in his genealogical table but does not cite the sources to which these dates refer[54].

5.         MATHILDE (-[28 Nov 1091/8 Mar 1105]).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[55].  She was present with her mother at the château de Bar 28 Nov 1091[56].  "Matthildis ancilla ancillarum Christi" (assumed to be Mathilde, daughter of Louis Comte de Mousson) confirmed donations to the abbey of Sainte-Croix, Wolfenheim, "ad Herlischesheim" donated by "comitissa Hiltegardis" for the soul of “filii sui Lodewici comitis”, “ad Dambach” which “mater mea” donated for the soul of “patris mei”, “ad Monstrol” which “dominus noster Hugo” donated, by undated charter which states that “domnus Hugo attavus meus” built the monastery[57].  Viellard dates this charter to [1090][58].  Grosdidier de Matons reports a claim that Mathilde married secondly "Valéran Redon de la maison de Crépy-en-Valois"[59], which is based on a spurious document allegedly dated 20 Aug 1118 in which "Renauldz quenz de Bar et de Monceonz" confirmed an agreement whereby "ma ante madame Mahauz monsigneor Walranz Redon sun mari" received Fontenoy and Nanteuil-le-Haudoin under his wife's inheritance[60].  He highlights the apparent confusion with Clémence, great niece of Mathilde and daughter of Renaud I, who married Thiébaut de Crépy Seigneur de Nanteuil-le-Haudoin and speculates that the document in question was a 17th century copy of a spurious act which was fabricated in 1313 by Renaud de Bar Bishop of Metz to prove a property claim against the king of France[61]m HUGO [X] Graf von Dagsburg, son of HEINRICH [I] Graf von Egisheim und Dagsburg & his wife --- (-murdered Strasbourg 5 Sep 1089). 

6.         SOPHIE (-before 8 Mar 1105).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[62].  Her marriage is recorded in Europäische Stammtafeln[63] but the primary source on which this is based has not yet been identified.  m VOLMAR [I] Graf [von Frohburg], son of ---.  1050/76. 

7.         BEATRICE (-26 Oct 1092, bur Toul Cathedral).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[64].  The Chronicon of Bernold records the death "1092 VII Kal Nov…in civitate Leucorum" of "Beatrix soror Friderici marchionis et uxor quondam Berthaldi ducis" and her burial by the bishop of the same place[65].  No children.  m ([1056]) as his second wife, BERTHOLD von Zähringen Graf im Breisgau, son of BEZZELIN von Villingen & his wife [Luitgard] --- (-Limburg 5/6 Nov 1078, bur Hirsau).  He was appointed BERCHTOLD I "the Bearded" Duke of Carinthia in 1061, deposed 1077.  Marchese di Verona 1066.  He was one of the principal adversaries of Emperor Heinrich IV in the investiture dispute[66]

 

 

The following person may have been related to Pierre Graf von Lützelburg (see above), but if that is correct the precise relationship has not yet been determined.  The reference “de familia” in the charter quoted below may indicate that Hartmann was a member of the count’s household, not a relation.    

1.         HARTMANN .  A charter dated 1208 recalls a donation of property by “clericus Hartmannus…de familia fuisset comitis Petri de Falckenstein”, made during the reign of “Lotharii regis”, and refers to a subsequent dispute concerning the property “ad tempora Reinaldi comitis, filii…comitis Petri…matris sue commitisse Yde[67]

 

 

THIERRY de Mousson, son of LOUIS Comte de Mousson & his wife Sophie of Upper Lotharingia ([1045]-1/2 Jan 1103, bur Autun Cathedral).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Theodericum" as son of "comiti Montionis Ludovico" and his wife Sophie[68].  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis…" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice…"[69].  On his marriage, he entered into possession of the château and seigneurie de Montbéliard[70].  He succeeded his father in [1071/76] in his territories of Altkirch, Ferrette, and around Hagenau.  He was present at the 1076 enfranchisement of the chapel in the castle of Amance[71].  He inherited the region of the future county of Bar from his mother in 1093.  He had taken a vow to join the First Crusade but was released from it due to illness.  He was invested as Comte de Verdun after 1096 by Richer Bishop of Verdun[72].  He dictated his testament in 1102 at the castle of Altkirch[73].  The Obituaire de Saint-Mansuy-lès-Toul records the death "1 Jan" of "Henricus et Theodoricus comites"[74]

m ([1065]) ERMENTRUDE de Bourgogne heiress of Montbéliard, daughter of GUILLAUME I "le Grand" Comte Palatin de Bourgogne & his wife Etiennette --- ([1050/55][75]-1106 or after, bur Autun Cathedral).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Ermentrudem" as wife of "Theodericum [filius comiti Montionis Ludovico]" specifying that she was heiress to Montbéliard[76].  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis et filii sui Fridericus, Raginaudus, Theodericus" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…Lodewico, Sophia eius uxore, et filiis eorum Brunone, Theoderico, Lodewico, Friderico, filiabus vero Mathilde, Sophia, Beatrice, filiis autem Theoderici atque sue uxoris Hermentrudis, Lodewico, Wilelmo, Hugone", witnessed by "Henricus de Suarca cum genero suo Gerunch, Gotefridus filius avunculi eiusdem comitis [Friderici]"[77].  It is assumed from the expression "suis antecessoribus" that all those so described were deceased at the date of the foundation.  She subscribed her son Renaud's act of sale of the fortress of Commercy to the abbé de Saint-Mihiel in 1106[78]

Comte Thierry & his wife had ten children:

1.         FREDERIC de Mousson ([1074/78]-19 Jul [1160], bur Oelenberg).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis et filii sui Fridericus, Raginaudus, Theodericus" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…filiis autem Theoderici atque sue uxoris Hermentrudis, Lodewico, Wilelmo, Hugone"[79].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "Theodoricum de Monte Beliardi, Fredericum de Ferretes…et Renaldum Strabum comitem de Barro Ducis" as the three brothers of Etienne Archbishop of Metz[80].  He succeeded his father in 1103 in his territories of Altkirch and Ferrette.  "Fridericus filius comitis Theoderici de Montebiligardis" donated "Altichilchensis ecclesie…consecrato in honore sancti Cristofori martyris" to Cluny by charter dated 3 Jul 1105 "laudante matre mea Hermentrude"[81].

5.         ETIENNE de Mousson (-Metz 29 Dec 1162, bur Metz Cathedral).  The Gesta Alberonis Archiepiscopi names "episcopum Stephanum, fratrem Rainaldi comes de Monzon"[92].  Destined for the church from an early age, he was brought up by his maternal uncle Guy Archbishop of Vienne, later Pope Calixtus II[93].  The Consecratio Ecclesiæ Senonensis names "Stephani pater comes Theodericus et avunculus domnus Guido Viennensis archiepiscopus, post urbis Romæ papa" in relation to the consecration of Sens in 1124[94].  Archdeacon of Toul.  Bishop of Metz 1120.  The Gesta Episcoporum Mettensium (Continuatio) records the succession in 1120 of “tam Burgundionem quam Lothoringorum...genere...domnus Stephanus...Calixti [papæ] ex sorore nepos”, and adds that he granted territory to “fratris sui comitis Barrensis aliorumque cognatorum et amicorum suorum” specifying “castrum Terli...castrumque ducis apud Vicum et munitionem inter Vicum et Marsallum in loco palustri sitam simulque castrum comitis de Hoemberc...castrum...Ramberti-villare...castrumque nobile Lucelnburch...castrum Viviers et partem ducis de Lemburc in castro Rucei...castrum...Mirabel et Falconis-montem...Danubrii et Asperi-montis...apud Spinal turrim...Moronis...castrum...Petro-pertusata...castrum Deulewart...turrim apud Tihecurt...et castrum...Walteri-montis[95].  Etienne Bishop of Metz declared that “frater meus Teodericus comes de Montbiliart” recognised the incorrectness of his claims relating to Gorze Abbey by charter dated to [1138/63], which names “cognati nostri Theoderic, Mettensis primicerii[96].  Etienne Bishop of Metz donated “prædium in feodo Commarciensi...Bernaicuria...sylvam etiam Commarciensem...Foreid” to Riéval “per manum comitis Rainaldi præfati Commarciensis feodi possessoris...collaudante filiisque eius Hugone et Rainaldo” by undated charter, witnessed by “Gerardo castellano...[97].  Etienne Bishop of Metz donated “molendinum in Commarciensi” to Riéval abbey “comite...Renaldo et ab utroque eius filio Ugone et Renaldo, a dominoque Stephano Metensi episcopo” by charter dated 9 Mar 1141 (O.S.?)[98].  He accompanied his brother Renaud on the Second Crusade in 1147[99].  The Gesta Episcoporum Mettensium (Continuatio) records the death “III Kal Jan” of “Stephanus” and his burial “iuxta chori[100]

6.         GUILLAUME de Mousson (-before 8 Mar 1105).  The mid-12th century Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names (in order) "Rainaldum, Theodericum, Fridericum, Willelmum et Stephanum episcopum Metensem fratres" as sons of "Theodericus"[101].  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis et filii sui Fridericus, Raginaudus, Theodericus" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…filiis autem Theoderici atque sue uxoris Hermentrudis, Lodewico, Wilelmo, Hugone"[102]

7.         HUGUES de Mousson (-before 8 Mar 1105).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis et filii sui Fridericus, Raginaudus, Theodericus" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…filiis autem Theoderici atque sue uxoris Hermentrudis, Lodewico, Wilelmo, Hugone"[103]

8.         GUNTHILDE de Mousson (-21 Feb 1131).  Her father founded the abbey of Bibliesheim in 1100 and installed his daughter Gunthilde as first abbess[104].  She was canonised[105]

10.      MATHILDE de Mousson .  Suger records the marriage of "Albertus nobilis comes Morspecensis" and "filiam Theoderici viri clarissimi de Monte Beliardo" who brought her husband various possessions of Saint-Denis "Blitestorp, Tatingum, Sulces, Fardulviler, Fehingas, Viler, Hoenchirche, Torneswile, Pretene" as dowry[111].  The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.  m ADALBERT Graf von Mörsberg, son of --- (-before 30 Aug 1125). 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2.    COMTES DE BAR

 

 

RENAUD, son of THIERRY de Mousson & his wife Ermentrude de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1075/77]-on ship in the Mediterranean 25 Feb or 10 Mar 1149).  "Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis et filii sui Fridericus, Raginaudus, Theodericus" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…filiis autem Theoderici atque sue uxoris Hermentrudis, Lodewico, Wilelmo, Hugone"[112].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Raynaldum comitem filium Theoderici Barrensis"[113]Comte de Bar et de Mousson.  Seigneur de Commercy:  as "comte Renaud", he sold the fortress of Commercy to the abbé de Saint-Mihiel in 1106[114].  During the dispute between Pope Pascal II and Heinrich V King of Germany concerning the election of Richard de Grandpré as Bishop of Verdun, comte Renaud arrested the Pope's representative and imprisoned him in the château de Grandpré.  The Bishop-elect confiscated the avouerie of Dieulouard from Renaud and gave it to Guillaume Comte de Luxembourg, in addition investing the latter with the counties of Stenay and Mouzay.  The resulting war lasted from 1111 to 1114, ending with the storming of the château de Bar in Jun 1114 and the Emperor's capture of comte Renaud, who was released in return for a promise of homage.  Comte Renaud reached a compromise with Guillaume de Luxembourg, which included the cession of Stenay and Mouzay.  Comte Renaud also acquired the county of Verdun, although the citizens of the town wounded him while resisting his occupation[115].  Emperor Heinrich V confiscated Verdun in 1120, in revenge for Renaud's military assistance for the installation of Henri de Blois as Bishop of Verdun, and awarded the county to Henri Comte de Grandpré.  Comte Renaud finally made peace at Chalade in 1124 and regained possession of Verdun[116].  "Comes Rainaldus" restored property at Maidières to Liège Saint-Lambert on the advice of "fratris nostri Stephani Metensi episcopi" by charter dated 1128, subscribed by "comes Paganus, comes Folmarus, Hugonellus heres et filius meus"[117].  He claimed the fortress of Bouillon from the Bishop of Liège, as successor to Godefroi de Bouillon [Boulogne] Duke of Lower Lotharingia, to whom he was distantly related through his paternal grandmother, and captured the castle in 1134.  Etienne Bishop of Metz donated “prædium in feodo Commarciensi...Bernaicuria...sylvam etiam Commarciensem...Foreid” to Riéval “per manum comitis Rainaldi præfati Commarciensis feodi possessoris...collaudante filiisque eius Hugone et Rainaldo” by undated charter, witnessed by “Gerardo castellano...[118].  The dispute over Bouillon continued, and the bishop besieged the castle in 1141, the death of his oldest son finally persuading Renaud to relinquish possession 22 Sep 1141[119].  Henri Bishop of Toul confirmed the donation of property “molendinum in Commarciensi” made by “comite...Renaldo et ab utroque eius filio Ugone et Renaldo, a dominoque Stephano Metensi episcopo” by charter dated 9 Mar 1141 (O.S.?)[120].  “Raynaudus...comes Muntiensis” confirmed the donation made by “Bernacrius vir militaris de castro Montiensi” to the church of Saint-Thiébaut-lez-Saint-Mihiel by charter dated 1145[121].  Comte Renaud took part in the Second Crusade in 1147, but died during the return sea voyage[122].  The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "V Kal Mar" of "Raynardus comes Barensis"[123]

[Note: uncorroborated first marriage.  According to Poull[124], Comte Renaud married twice.  The author states that this first wife gave birth to a child during the siege of Mousson castle by imperial troops in 1113.  He cites Laurent de Liège, although this source makes no mention of any birth in his detailed description of the siege of the castle[125].  No other indication has been found of this alleged first marriage or the birth of a son in 1113.  Poull dates the alleged first marriage to [1110], although he does not explain the basis for his argument.] 

m (before [1120]) GISELE de Vaudémont, widow of RAINARD [III] Comte de Toul, daughter of GERARD Comte de Vaudémont & his wife Heilwig von Egisheim (-after 1141).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comitem Wanderii Montis Hugonem et sororem eius Gislam" as children of "Gerardum…primus comes Wanderi Montis" & his [second] wife, specifying that Gisela was "comitissa Barri"[126].  Her first marriage is deduced from the same source which records that "comes Raynaldus Barri" became the stepfather ("vitricus") of "comitis Frederici Tullensis et fratrum suorum Theoderici et Wedrici" although without naming his wife[127].  It should be noted that these two texts do not establish beyond doubt that the widow of Rainard Comte de Toul was also the daughter of Gérard Comte de Vaudémont.  It is therefore not impossible that Comte Renaud married twice, firstly to Gisèle daughter of Comte Gérard, and secondly to the unnamed widow of Comte Rainard.  However, no indication has yet been found in the primary sources to indicate that this is correct. 

Comte Renaud & his wife had [eight] children:

1.         HUGUES de Bar (-Château de Bouillon 29 Sep 1141, bur Saint-Mihiel).  Laurent de Liège records that "Raynaldi" captured "tribus castellis" in 1134 of which "filius eius Hugo" held "Eventronis-villam" (Watronville)[128].  Etienne Bishop of Metz donated “prædium in feodo Commarciensi...Bernaicuria...sylvam etiam Commarciensem...Foreid” to Riéval “per manum comitis Rainaldi præfati Commarciensis feodi possessoris...collaudante filiisque eius Hugone et Rainaldo” by undated charter, witnessed by “Gerardo castellano...[129].  Reiner's Triumphale records a siege "XVI Kal Sep" in 1141 in which "duo filii Rainaldi, Ugo…natu maior, et Rainaldus iunior" fought[130].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death of "unos de duobus filiis [=comes Barrensis Raynaldus] Hugo" who was "in castro, in insaniam versus"[131].  Henri Bishop of Toul confirmed the donation of property “molendinum in Commarciensi” made by “comite...Renaldo et ab utroque eius filio Ugone et Renaldo, a dominoque Stephano Metensi episcopo” by charter dated 9 Mar 1141 (O.S.?)[132].  If this charter is correctly dated, the confirmation was made after the death of Hugues. 

2.         RENAUD de Bar (-25 Nov 1170, bur Saint-Mihiel).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "alter filius[=comitis Barrensis Raynaldi] Raynaldus minor"[133].  Etienne Bishop of Metz donated “prædium in feodo Commarciensi...Bernaicuria...sylvam etiam Commarciensem...Foreid” to Riéval “per manum comitis Rainaldi præfati Commarciensis feodi possessoris...collaudante filiisque eius Hugone et Rainaldo” by undated charter, witnessed by “Gerardo castellano...[134].  Henri Bishop of Toul confirmed the donation of property “molendinum in Commarciensi” made by “comite...Renaldo et ab utroque eius filio Ugone et Renaldo, a dominoque Stephano Metensi episcopo” by charter dated 9 Mar 1141 (O.S.?)[135].  He succeeded his father in 1149 as Comte de Bar.  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death "1170…in festo sancti Laurentii" of "comes Barri iunior Raynaldus"[136].  In a later passage the same source records that he was buried "in abbatia sancti Michaelis"[137].  The necrology of Saint-Père-en-Vallée records the death "VII Kal Aug" of "Rainaldus comes Barrensis pater Rainaldi Carnotensis episcopi"[138]m (1155) AGNES de Blois, daughter of THIBAUT IV Comte de Blois et de Troyes & his wife Mathilde von Sponheim [Carinthia] (-7 Aug 1207, bur Trois-Fontaines).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi refers to the wife of "Rainaldus frater Theoderici electi Metensis" as "filia comitis Campanie…soror regine Francie"[139].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Agnes Barri Ducis comitissa" as second of the six daughters of "comes Campanie Theobaldus", and in a later passage names "comitissa Agnes" as wife of "comitis Raynaldi"[140].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines also records that "Agnes [mater comitis Barri Theobaldi]" was buried "in abbatia Trium Fontium"[141].  Dame de Ligny-en-Barrois.  “Henricus comes Barrensis” donated commission on sales of wine at Bar to Saint-Mihiel, with the consent of “Agnetis matris mee, Teobaldi fratris mei, Friderici de Bides”, by charter dated to [1172/89][142].  A list of foundations at Troyes records the memory "11 Aug" of "Agnes de Bar fille du comte Thibaut"[143].  The necrology of Chartres cathedral records the death "VII Id Aug" of "Agnes comitissa Montionis"[144].  The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "VII Id Aug" of "Agnes comitissa Barensis"[145].  Comte Renaud & his wife had five children: 

a)         JACQUES [Henri] de Bar (1158-killed in battle Acre 14 or 19 Oct 1190).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Theobaldus comes de Monceons…Henricum comitem de Bar et Rainaldum episcopum Carnotensem" as children of "Rainaldus frater Theoderici electi Metensis" & his wife[146].  He succeeded his father in 1174 as HENRI I Comte de Bar.  “Henricus comes Barrensis” donated commission on sales of wine at Bar to Saint-Mihiel, with the consent of “Agnetis matris mee, Teobaldi fratris mei, Friderici de Bides”, by charter dated to [1172/89][147].  The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "XIV Kal Nov" of "Heinricus comes Barensis et Ugo frater eius"[148].  A letter dated 21 Oct 1190, recording the arrival of the archbishop of Canterbury at Tyre, names “...comes Barensis, nepos eiusdem...” among those who had died [in Palestine][149].  The identity of the “nepos” of Henri I Comte de Bar has not been ascertained.  Presumably the word much be used in an extended family sense as any nephew of the deceased count would presumably have been too young to have been fighting on crusade. 

b)         JEAN [Thibaut] de Bar ([1160]-12/13 Feb 1214, bur Saint-Mihiel).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Theobaldus comes de Monceons…Henricum comitem de Bar et Rainaldum episcopum Carnotensem" as children of "Rainaldus frater Theoderici electi Metensis" & his wife[150].  He succeeded his brother in 1190 as THIBAUT I Comte de Bar

-        see below

c)         RENAUD de Bar (-9 Dec 1217).  The Genealogica ex Stirpe Sancti Arnulfi names "Theobaldus comes de Monceons…Henricum comitem de Bar et Rainaldum episcopum Carnotensem" as children of "Rainaldus frater Theoderici electi Metensis" & his wife[151].  Thesaurarius at Saint-Martin de Tours.  Provost at Chartres Cathedral 1181.  Bishop of Chartres 1183.  "Raginaldus...Carnotensis episcopus" confirmed the creation of "quatuor prepositurarum" at Chartres Notre-Dame with “avunculus noster Willelmus tunc Senonensis nunc Remensis archiepiscopus” by charter dated Oct 1193[152].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records the death in 1217 of “episcopi Robertus Virdunensis, Philippus Belvacensis, Renaldus Carnotensis[153].  The necrology of Chartres records the death "V Id Dec" of "Raginaldus huius sanctæ sedis reverendus antistes…comitis Montionis filius"[154].  The necrology of Saint-André de Chartres records the death “VIII Id Dec“ of "Raginaldus ecclesie Carnotensis...episcopus” and his donation[155]

d)         HUGUES de Bar (-25 Jul 1192).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names (in order) "comes Henricus et comes Theobaldus et quidam Hugo et episcopus Carnotensis Reynaldus" as the four sons of "comes Barri iunior Raynaldus" & his wife[156].  Canon and provost at Chartres Cathedral 1192.  The necrology of Saint-Père-en-Vallée records the death "IV Kal Aug" of "Ugo prepositus B. Marie, frater Rainaldi episcopi Carnotensis"[157].  The necrology of Verdun Saint-Vanne records the death "XIV Kal Nov" of "Heinricus comes Barensis et Ugo frater eius"[158]

e)         HAVIDIS de Bar .  She is named in Europäische Stammtafeln[159] but not named by Poull[160].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Abbess of Clairefontaine. 

3.         [DROGO de Bar .  Pope Alexander III confirmed donations made to Riéval abbey, including the donation of “usuarium...nemus...Forest” made by “Rainaldus comes Barri” with the consent of “Stephani Metensis episcopi et filiorum suorum Rainaldi et Drogonis”, by charter dated 1179[161].  This is the only charter in this series which names “Drogo” as son of Renaud [I] Comte de Bar.  It is not known whether this represents an error for one of his other known sons.] 

4.         THIERRY de Bar (-8 Aug 1171, bur Metz Cathedral).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "episcopi Theodorici et comitis Reynaldi" as sons of "Renaldum Strabum comitem de Barro Ducis"[162].  Archdeacon at Metz before 1128, primicerius 1137.  Etienne Bishop of Metz declared that “frater meus Teodericus comes de Montbiliart” recognised the incorrectness of his claims relating to Gorze Abbey by charter dated to [1138/63], which names “cognati nostri Theoderic, Mettensis primicerii[163].  Archdeacon at Verdun 1156.  Bishop of Metz 1163.  The Gesta Episcoporum Mettensium (Continuatio) records the succession in 1164 of “dominus Theodericus fratris sui [referring to “Stephanus”] comitis Barrensis filius”, his acquisition of “Werinesperc et Radonis-villam. Castrum Conflans”, and his death “III Id Aug[164]

5.         AGNES de Bar (-after 1185).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Agenete sorore eiusdem comitis [=comes Barri iunior Raymaldus" specifying that she was mother of "episcopus Vidunensis Arnulfus de Cisneio"[165].  "Anetis comitissa de Chinei" donated part of the forest of Blanchampagne to the church of Moulins, for the soul of "domini Alberti comitis", by charter dated to [1185] which names "filios meos heredes, maxime Ludovicum et Teodericum"[166]m ([1140]) ALBERT Comte de Chiny, son of OTTO [II] Comte de Chiny & his wife Alix de Namur (-29 Sep 1162).

6.         CLEMENCE de Bar ([1123/27]]-after 20 Jan 1183).  The Genealogiæ Scriptoris Fusniacensis records that "comes Rainaldus [de Claromonte]" married "comitissam de Dammartin, filiam comitis Rainaldi de Monzuns"[167].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to "comites de Claromonte Belvacensi" as descended from "una…sorore eiusdem comitis [=comes Barri iunior Raynaldus]"[168].  Her birth date range is estimated based on the date of her parents' marriage.  Renaud’s second wife would presumably have held the title “Ctss de Dammartin” through an earlier marriage to a comte de Dammartin.  If she had been the daughter of a comte de Dammartin, she would not have borne the comital title.  [“Radulfus Oysardi filius” donated property at Creil to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, and the nuns obtained the consent of "comitem Rainaldum Claromontensem…uxor eius Clementia, filia…ipsius Margarita", by charter dated to [1119][169].  The dating of this document is problematic: while the presence of Marguerite suggests that she was still unmarried, the date is inconsistent with the estimated birth date of Clémence.  It should be noted that Mathon dates the consent given by Comte Renaud to [1153], although he does not state why he says this[170].  If that dating is correct, the witness would have been Renaud’s daughter Marguerite by his second marriage, although it is unclear why she would have been singled out for giving consent without her brothers and sisters.]  Louis VII King of France confirmed what “episcopus Parisiensis et Guillelmus Lupus frater eius et comes Damni-Martini Renaudus cum uxore sua” donated to Chaalis “per concessum Adelizæ de Bulis et filiorum eius Lancelini...et fratrum suorum” and the donation of land “apud Hermenovillam et...moriens juxta Villam-novam” made by “Joscelinus de Damno-Martino”, by charter dated 1138[171].  The property the subject of the first-named donation is not specified in the charter.  However, a possibly linked charter dated to [1137] records that “Willelmus Lupus Silvanectensis” donated “locum...in quo situm est cœnobium...[et] usum totius Espioniæ et Beeley”, with the support of “uxore mea Adelvia, filioque meo majore...Guidone” and sealed by “fratris mei Stephani Parisiensis episc.[172].  The charter dated 1138 also provides a possible indication of Clémence’s family origin: the joint donation suggests a joint interest in the property donated, and so a connection with the family of the bouteillers de Senlis (to which Guillaume “le Loup” and his brother Etienne Bishop of Paris belonged).  A charter dated 1144 confirmed a donation by "Rainaldus Claromontensis comes" to Saint-Leu d’Esserent, with the consent of "Clementia uxor prædicti comitis cum filio suo Guidone"[173].  An undated charter records the grant of pasturage rights "ad castrum Claromontis, Credulii, Gornaci, Lusarchiarum" to Saint-Leu d’Esserant by "Hugo comes Cestrensis" and "Hugo Claromontensis et Margarita uxor eius", later confirmed by "Rainaldus comes" with the consent of "uxore eius Clementia et filiis eius Guidone et Rainaldo"[174].  "Rainaldus comes de Claromonte et Clemencia uxor eius et Widdo eorum filius" confirmed donations to Saint-Leu d’Esserant made by "Albericus…Paganus…comites de Donno Martino…pater suus Hugo de Claromonte et Margarita uxor eius et comites Cestrences Hugo et Richardus", on the advice of "uxoris meæ Adæ", by charter dated 1152[175].  Louvet notes a donation to the priory of Gournay-sur-Aronde made by “Rainal Comte de Clermont et Clemence sa femme” which was confirmed and supplemented in 1165 by “leurs enfans...Raoult Comte de Clermont, Simon, Gautier, Margueritte, Matilde et Comtesse[176].  Louis VII King of France confirmed an agreement between Eudes Prior of Saint-Denis and "Donni Martini comitissam Clementiam" who relinquished rights “in Trenbleio” by charter dated 1153[177].  Mathieu quotes a charter of Manassès Bishop of Meaux, dated to [1157], which records property first donated to Chaalis by “Domnimartini comitissa Clementia, laudante viro suo Renaldo de Clarimonte” as well as her donation of rights of way and use of wood “in omnia terra” belonging to “consulatum Domnimartini[178].  “Clementia comitissa de Domno Martino cum liberis meis” renounced rights over “villa Trembliaco” after disputes between the abbey of Saint-Denis and “antecessores nostros comites de Dompno Martino”, litigated before “regis Ludovici”, by undated charter (dated to [1153/62]), witnessed by “Ansoldus de Claromonte et Petrus nepos eius, Galterus de Alneto...[179].  [Duchesne states that Thibaut [III] de Nanteuil married “Clemence veuve de Renaut Comte de Clairmont en Beauvoisin” by whom he had three children, but does not cite the corresponding primary source[180].  The primary source which confirms this third marriage has not yet been identified, and from a chronological point of view it appears unlikely to be correct particularly as she is supposed to have had children by her third husband.] m firstly --- Comte de Dammartin, son of ---.  m secondly ([1135]) as his second wife, RENAUD Comte de Clermont [en-Beauvaisis], son of HUGUES de Clermont [en-Beauvaisis] dit de Mouchy & his wife Marguerite de Montdidier (-[1152/53]).  [m thirdly THIBAUT [III] de Crépy Seigneur de Nanteuil-le-Haudouin, son of THIBAUT [II] de Crépy & his wife Elisabeth --- (-before 20 Jan 1183).]

Comte Thibaut II & his second wife had [fifteen] children.  The chronology of the lives of these children is surprisingly extended.  Considering their mother’s estimated date of birth, it is unlikely that many were born after the early 1280s.  If that is correct, all her sons married late, and her son Pierre did not die until the late 1340s, while the dates of the marriage contracts of her daughters range between [1258/59] and 1295.  It is also curious that none of these children were given names typical of the Toucy family. 

1.         PHILIPPA de Bar (-after Jun 1283).  A charter dated Mar [1258/59] records the marriage between “Hugues cuens palatins de Bourgoigne et Alix sa fame…de Othenin nostre ainnez fil” and “l´ainnée fille de Thiebaut conte de Bart[269].  Her marriage date suggests that Philippa was one of her parents’ older children.  “Othonino filio eiusdem primogenito” granted “castellum...Saelleres” to “domina Alis Sabaudie Burgundie comitissa palatina” in return for granted him when he married “Philippam filiam...Theobaldi comitis Baronis” by charter dated 6 Apr 1271[270].  “Henris cuens de Bar, Jehans, Thiebaus, Renaus, Erars, damoiselle Alix, damoiselle Marie” notified their consent to “nostre...meire Jehanne de Toucy dame de Pusoye“ arranging affairs, including the escheat of “damoiselle Alix nostre niece fille...Philippe contesse de Borgoingne nostre...seror qui fut”, by charter dated 7 Nov 1291[271]m (contract Mar [1258/59], [1263]) as his first wife, OTTO de Bourgogne, son of HUGUES de Chalon Comte Palatin de Bourgogne & his wife Alix Ctss Palatine de Bourgogne [Andechs] (before 1248-Melun 17 or 26 Mar 1303, bur Charlieu).  He succeeded his mother in 1279 as OTHON V Comte Palatin de Bourgogne

2.         HENRI de Bar ([1255/60]-Naples Sep 1302)Henris ainsneis filz le Comte de Bar, suers de meinburnie” agreed to help Ferry III Duke of Lorraine against the bishop of Metz by charter dated 1277[272].  This charter suggests that Henri was born [1255/60], as the precise age at which he would have been emancipated is uncertain.  The testament of Thiebaut cuens de Bar”, dated 1282, appoints as executors “Jehenne contesse de Bar ma femme, mon signor Guy de Toucy signor de Baserne, mon signor Thieri d’Amele le chastelains de Bar qui or est...” and names “Henry aineis fils le comte de Bar[273]He succeeded his father in 1291 as HENRI III Comte de Bar.  “Henris cuens de Bar, Jehans, Thiebaus, Renaus, Erars, damoiselle Alix, damoiselle Marie” notified their consent to “nostre...meire Jehanne de Toucy dame de Pusoye“ arranging affairs, including the escheat of “damoiselle Alix nostre niece fille...Philippe contesse de Borgoingne nostre...seror qui fut”, by charter dated 7 Nov 1291[274].  “Loys cuens de Chiney et...Johenne contesse de Chiney et dame de Blanmont sa fame” claimed a share in the succession of “Henrit conte de Bair peire à moi Jehenne dessus dite et...à...ma...meire Phelippe contesse de Bair qui fut et en l’escheoite de...Henri et...Renaut de Bair mes freire qui furent“ from “Henrit conte de Bair” by charter dated 7 Jun 1294[275].  He was named Lieutenant General of the Empire by Adolf King of Germany Graf von Nassau in 1295.  "Iehanne de Thoci comtesse de Bar et dame de Pusoye" confirmed the peace agreement between Philippe IV King of France and "nostre...fil Henry cuens de Bar" by charter dated 1301 “le Vendredy apres Pentecoste[276]m (Bristol 20 Sep 1293) as her second husband, ELEANOR of England, widow of ALFONSO III "el Liberal" King of Aragon, daughter of EDWARD I King of England & his first wife Infanta doña Leonor de Castilla (Windsor Castle before 17 Jun 1269-Ghent 12 Oct 1297, bur Westminster Abbey).  The Continuator of Florence of Worcester records the marriage "apud Bristoll vigilia S Matthaæi Apostoli" 20 Sep [1293] of "Alienora regis Angliæ flia primogenita" and "domino Henrico comitis de Baroduc"[277].  The Oude Kronik van Brabant records the marriage in 1294 of "comes de Barri" and "filiam primogenitam Eduardi regis Anglorum"[278].  Poull gives no death date for Eleanor, but says that she returned to England after her husband died and that 8 May 1304 her father started negotiations for her marriage with Robert, son of Othon Comte Palatin de Bourgogne & his wife Mathilde Ctss d'Artois[279].  This seems unlikely as Robert de Bourgogne was born in 1300, so was over 30 years younger than Eleanor.  Comte Henri III & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         [ELEONORE de Bar .  Bridgeman states that the Heralds employed to draw up the pedigree of King Henry VII recorded Llywelyn´s wife as “the daughter of William de Comte de Barr by Elinor the daughter of King Edward I” but dismisses this possibility[280].  He refers to other sources which propose alternative identities for Llywelyn´s wife (see the document WALES).  If Bridgeman is correct, it is unlikely that Eléonore ever existed.  m LLYWELYN ap Owen Lord of Iscoed, son of OWEN ap Maredudd & his wife Angharad of Cydewain (-1309).] 

b)         EDOUARD de Bar (1296-Famagusta 11 Nov 1336, bur Famagusta).  The Chronicle of Lanercost names "filium…Edwardum et filiam quam Johannes de Warenna comes duxit in uxorem" as the children of "Alianora filia regis" and "Henrico comiti Barienti"[281].  He succeeded his father in 1302 as EDOUARD I Comte de Bar, minor until 1311.  m (contract Bar-sur-Aube, Aube 13 Jun 1306, château de Montbard 11 Feb 1310) MARIE de Bourgogne, daughter of ROBERT II Duke of Burgundy & his wife Agnes de France (1298-before 1336, bur Bar, église Saint-Maxe).  Edward I King of England wrote to “Agneti ducissæ Burgundiæ” concerning the marriage between “Edwardum filium et hæredem bonæ memoriæ Henrici quondam comitis Barrensis defuncti nepotem nostrum” and “filiam vestram” is dated 8 May 1306[282].  A charter dated 13 Jun 1306 records the marriage between “Hugues dux de Bourgoigne…Marie nostre…suer” and “Eduard de la contée de Barz[283].  Comte Edouard I & his wife had [three] children:

The seigneurie of Ligny [en-Barrois] was situated north-west of Joinville, and due east of Saint-Dizier, today located in the south-west of the French département of Meuse in the arrondissement of Bar-le-Duc.  Originally part of the domaine of the comtes de Blois/Champagne, Ligny was the dowry of Agnes, daughter of Thibaut IV Comte de Blois et de Troyes, when she married Renaud II Comte de Bar.  The couple’s grandson Henri II Comte de Bar granted it to his daughter Marguerite on her marriage to Henri VI "le Blond" Comte de Luxembourg[399].  It passed to the couple’s younger son Waléran de Luxembourg, who is shown below.  The seigneurie was elevated to the status of a county by Charles V King of France in 1367 in favour of Waléran’s great-grandson Guy de Luxembourg.

WALERAN [I] de Luxembourg, son of HENRI V Comte de Luxembourg & his wife Marguerite de Bar Dame de Ligny-en-Barrois (-killed in battle Worringen [Wary] 5 Jun 1288)The Gesta Baldewini de Luczenburch names "Henrico Comite Luczelinburgensis" and "Walramo germano suo"[400]Seigneur de Ligny-en-Barrois, de Roussy et de La Roche.  "Henris cuens de Lucembourg et de la Roche et Marchis d’Erlons et...Marguerite sa fame" granted “en heritaige Linei” to “Walerant nostre fil” by charter dated Dec 1262[401].  "Henry cuens de Lucelbourg et de la Roche et Marchis d’Arlons" notified that “Walerans nostre filz” had become “hons liges à Henry son frere nostre ainey filz” for “Roussey...Liney”, which he had from his mother, by charter dated Apr 1270[402].  “Vallerans de Lucembourg sires de Liney, chlrs, et Jehanne sa femme” granted rights to Ligny by charter dated Sep 1276, in a vidimus dated 28 Apr 1503[403].  He was killed after rushing to the assistance of his brother Henri VI Comte de Luxembourg during the battle of Worringen against Jean Duke of Brabant[404].  The History of the Bishops of Liège written by Jean Hocsemius, canon at Liège, records that "Lutzilburgensis comes...Waleranus...frater eius, et frater Coloniensis archiepiscopi" were killed in 1288 “Non Jun...bellum apud castrum de Waronc[405]

Waleran [I] & his wife had three children: 

1.         HENRI de Luxembourg (-killed in battle Courtrai 14 Jul 1302).  Seigneur de Ligny 1295.  "Henrys de Luxembourg sire de Liney" founded anniversaries for the souls of “son...pere monseigneur Walerans de Luxembourg et...madame Ieanne de Beauvoir sa mere” by charter dated 1300[409].  The Chronique Artésienne records “mesire Henris de Luxembourc” among those killed at the battle of Furnes 20 Aug 1297[410], which appears to be incorrect in light of the charter dated 1300 quoted above

2.         WALERAN [II] de Luxembourg (-after 1 Nov 1352, bur Notre-Dame de Cambrai)Seigneur de Beauvoir et de Roussy 1288.  He succeeded his brother in 1303 as Seigneur de Ligny.  “Wallerans de Luxelbourch sires de Ligny et castelains de Lille” notified the payment of a debt by charter dated 5 Nov 1305[411]The necrology of Lille Saint-Pierre records the names “VII Kal Feb” of “domini Walerani de Luxembourg, domini de Ligny et Guyote uxoris eius castulanæ Insulensis et Jeannis filiis eorum[412]m (before 5 Nov 1305) GUYOTTE Chatelaine de Lille, daughter of JEAN [IV] Châtelain de Lille & his wife Beatrix de Clermont ([1275]-7 Aug 1338, bur Abbaye de Phalempin).  “Wallerans de Lussenbourc sires de Ligny et castelaine de Lille et Guiote damoisiele et castelaine” donated property to Cambrai by charter dated 1 May 1310[413].  “Guyotte dame de Ligny et châtelaine de Lille” founded at chapel at Neuville, Phalempin, for the souls of “feus Jean son père, de Beatrix de Nesle sa mère, de Mahaut son aïeule” and also for the souls of “Wallerand de Luxembourg son mari et de Jean son fils”, by charter dated Mar 1336[414]The necrology of Lille Saint-Pierre records the names “VII Kal Feb” of “domini Walerani de Luxembourg, domini de Ligny et Guyote uxoris eius castulanæ Insulensis et Jeannis filiis eorum[415].  An inscription in the chapel of Saint-Jean-l’Evangéliste at Phalempin records the death 7 Aug 1337 of dame Guyote dame de Ligny chastelaine de Lille[416].  "Iehans de Luxembourg chastelains de Lille et sire de Roussy", by charter dated 15 Jan 1347, notified letters issued by “nostre...pere monseigneur Walerand de Luxembourg seigneur de Liney et de feu nostre...mere Guyote...chastelaine de Lille[417].  Waleran [II] & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         JEAN de Luxembourg ([1300]-17 May 1364, bur Phalempin).  “Guyotte dame de Ligny et châtelaine de Lille” founded at chapel at Neuville, Phalempin, for the souls of “feus Jean son père, de Beatrix de Nesle sa mère, de Mahaut son aïeule” and also for the souls of “Wallerand de Luxembourg son mari et de Jean son fils”, by charter dated Mar 1336[418]Seigneur de Ligny, Seigneur de Beauvoir et de Roussy 1347. 

-        see below

b)         [MARIE de Luxembourg (-Jun 1337, bur Gistel)A monumental inscription in Gistel church records the death “te Kersy den xxiii ougst” of “myn heere Jan die was van Ghistelles” and “1337 in juing” of “zy vr. Marie van Lutsenborch myns heerens Walrands dochtere”, with the arms of Luxembourg[419].  Limburg-Stirum suggests that Grootjans-Hulpiau reproduced the epitaph “me paraît-il d’une manière très imparfaite” but he does not indicate the precise parts which he considers inaccurate[420].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Marie was the daughter of Waléran [I] de Luxembourg Seigneur de Ligny[421].  The chronology suggests that this parentage is unlikely to be correct.  The children of Waléran [I] were born between 1272 and 1288, which makes Jan [IV] de Gistel’s marriage to his daughter after 1326 unlikely as Marie would have been approaching the end of her child-bearing years.  If the Gistel church epitaph is correct, it is more likely that Marie was the daughter of Waléran [II].  m (after 1326) as his second wife, JAN [IV] Heer van Gistel, son of JAN [III] Heer van Gistel & his first wife Marguerite de Durbuy [Luxembourg-Limburg] (-killed in battle Crécy 26 Aug 1346, bur Gistel).]  

3.         PHILIPPA de Luxembourg (-after Oct 1287).  The contract of marriage between "Henry comte de Valence...Henry fils dudit comte de Valence" and “Waleran de Luxembourg seigneur de Ligny...Philippe fille dudit Waleran” is dated Oct 1287, under which “Henry comte de Valence donne à sondit filz le chasteau de Valence et le conté et le chasteau de Luxembourg, reservé le chasteau de Landesbourg[422].  Philippa’s future husband has not been identified beyond doubt.  The reference to Luxembourg suggests that he may have been the future Henri VII Comte de Luxembourg.  If that is correct, “Valence” may represent “Valenciennes”, an area with which the Luxembourg family had connections at the time.  No reference has been found to a Papal dispensation for such a marriage, necessary because of the close family relationship between the parties.  Betrothed (contract Oct 1287) to HENRIComte de Valence”, son of HENRI “Comte de Valence” & his wife ---, maybe HENRI VII Comte de Luxembourg, son of HENRI VI Comte de Luxembourg & his wife Beatrix d'Avesnes (12 Jul 1274-Buonconvento near Siena 24 Aug 1313, bur Pisa Cathedral).
