INTRODUCTION

 

 

The seigneurie de Bourbon was located north of Auvergne and west of the southern part of the duchy of Burgundy.  From relatively obscure beginnings, the first race of seigneurs de Bourbon arranged prominent marriages with Burgundian nobility.  Bourbon passed by marriage to the seigneurs de Dampierre in Champagne and eventually to a younger son of Louis IX King of France.  Bourbon was elevated to the status of a duchy in 1327 in favour of Louis Comte de Clermont, and he and his successors rose to prominence at the French court.  On the death in 1525 of Charles Duc d’Alençon, the Bourbon-Vendôme family (descended from a younger son of Jacques de Bourbon Comte de la Marche et de Ponthieu, see VENDÔME) became senior male representatives of the Capet dynasty, after the king and his immediate family.  As succession to the French crown through the female line was excluded, this eventually led to Henri IV King of France, then head of the Bourbon-Vendôme line, succeeding after the extinction in 1589 of the male line of the Valois royal family (see CAPET).

A.      SEIGNEURS de BOURBON

 

 

The origin of Aimar, earliest known ancestor of the first dynasty of seigneurs de Bourbon, is unknown.  However, a spurious Carolingian descent was created for him in the late 17th century which has proved remarkably resistant and has found its way over the succeeding centuries into numerous secondary sources including Europäische Stammtafeln[1].  The fraudulent Bourbon documentation recalls the similar exercise relating to the purported Merovingian descent of the dukes of Aquitaine and Gascony, based on the so-called Alarcon charter which was fabricated around the same time (see the Introduction to GASCONY).  The background to the creation of the fraudulent Bourbon documents is discussed fully by Chazaud who also publishes in full several of the spurious charters[2].  He traces their authorship to Frère André de Saint-Nicolas, prior of the Carmelite priory of Moulins, who also cooperated with Etienne Baluze in the compilation of documentation for the latter’s Histoire de la maison d’Auvergne published in 1708[3].  The documents were provided to Jean-Baptiste Goth Duc d’Epernon and Marquis de Rouillac.  According to the first in the series of spurious charters, dated May 922, "Ademarus comes" (identified with Aimar, ancestor of the seigneurs de Bourbon) donated "Lisinias villa in pago Augustidense" to Cluny/Souvigny, for the souls of "senioris mei Nibilungi genitoris et Kunegundis genetricis", signed by "Haimonis, Erkimbaudi et Dagoberti filiorum eius, Rotberti ducis nepotis eius, Ugonis filii Rotberti…"[4].  "Nibilung" was no doubt intended to be a member of the Nibelung/Childebrand/Theoderic family (see CAROLINGIAN NOBILITY) but the fabrication is unconvincing as none of these names is found among the known descendants of Aimar.  Another charter, dated 28 Apr 924, records another purported donation by "Ademarus comes" and names "Eckardi comitis avi mei…et Rodberti et Adelelmi quondam fratrum meorum…"[5].  A further charter, dated [945], records a purported donation by "Haimo dominus Borbonensis, filius Ademari comitis et Hermengardis comitissæ" and names "filiis nostris Geraldo, Archimbaldo, Haimone, Ebbone, Umberto et Anserico et filia nostra Aldesinda"[6].  No other primary sources have yet been identified which name the two supposed brothers of Aimar and the supposed four younger sons and daughter of Aimon [I].  They are therefore omitted from the genealogy which is presented below. 

 

 

1.         AIMAR (-before Jan 954).  "Aymardus" donated "curtem Silviniaci" to Cluny by charter dated Mar 920, signed by "Emmonis, Archimbaldi, Dagberti, Aimonis, item Aimonis, et item Aimonis…"[7]m ERMENGARDIS, daughter of --- (-before Jan 954).  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny, for the souls of "genitoris mei et genetricis meæ Ermengardæ…", by charter dated Jan 954[8].  Aimar & his wife had [four] children: 

a)         AIMON [I] [Emmon] ([900/05]-after Jan 954).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated Jan 954 (see below).  "Emmonis, Archimbaldi, Dagberti, Aimonis, item Aimonis, et item Aimonis…" signed the charter dated Mar 920 under which "Aymardus" donated "curtem Silviniaci" to Cluny[9], the first three signatories presumably being Aimar’s sons.  His birth date range is estimated on the assumption that he and his brothers were young adults or adolescents when they witnessed this 920 charter.  Seigneur de Bourbon.  "Aymo" donated property "in paugo Alvernico in fundis Donobrens in accio Noviacense, vocabulum est Longo Verno" to Cluny by charter dated Nov 950, signed by "Eldesen…Arkambal, Gemmono, Ebono, Unbert, Elferico, item Aimono, Girber, Dummiono…"[10].  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny, with the consent of "uxore mea Aldesinde" and for the souls of "genitoris mei et genetricis meæ Ermengardæ et fratrum meorum Daceberti et Archimbaldi", by charter dated Jan 954 which refers to "cartam testamenti pater meus Aymardus", signed "apud castrum Borbonem" by "Aymonis et Aldesinde uxoris eius…Geraldi et Archimbaldi filiorum eius…"[11]m ALDESINDE, daughter of ---.  "Eldesen…Arkambal, Gemmono, Ebono, Unbert, Elferico, item Aimono, Girber, Dummiono…" signed the charter dated Nov 950 under which "Aymo" donated property "in paugo Alvernico in fundis Donobrens in accio Noviacense, vocabulum est Longo Verno" to Cluny[12].  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny, with the consent of "uxore mea Aldesinde", by charter dated Jan 954[13].  Aimon [I] & his wife had two children: 

i)          GERARD de Bourbon (-after Jan 954).  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny by charter dated Jan 954, signed "apud castrum Borbonem" by "Aymonis et Aldesinde uxoris eius…Geraldi et Archimbaldi filiorum eius…"[14].  The order of signatures suggests that Gérard was older than his brother Archambaud.  If this hypothesis is correct, it is likely that Gérard predeceased their father as no other document has been found in which he is named. 

ii)         ARCHAMBAUD [I] de Bourbon ([930/35]-after [990]).  "Eldesen…Arkambal…" signed the charter dated Nov 950 under which "Aymo" donated property "in paugo Alvernico in fundis Donobrens in accio Noviacense, vocabulum est Longo Verno" to Cluny[15].  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny by charter dated Jan 954, signed "apud castrum Borbonem" by "Aymonis et Aldesinde uxoris eius…Geraldi et Archimbaldi filiorum eius…"[16]Seigneur de Bourbon

-         see below

b)         ARCHAMBAUD .  "Emmonis, Archimbaldi, Dagberti, Aimonis, item Aimonis, et item Aimonis…" signed the charter dated Mar 920 under which "Aymardus" donated "curtem Silviniaci" to Cluny[17], the first three signatories presumably being Aimar’s sons.  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny, for the souls of "genitoris mei et genetricis meæ Ermengardæ et fratrum meorum Daceberti et Archimbaldi", by charter dated Jan 954[18]

c)         DAGOBERT (-[Nov 950/Jan 954]).  "Emmonis, Archimbaldi, Dagberti, Aimonis, item Aimonis, et item Aimonis…" signed the charter dated Mar 920 under which "Aymardus" donated "curtem Silviniaci" to Cluny[19], the first three signatories presumably being Aimar’s sons.  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny, for the souls of "genitoris mei et genetricis meæ Ermengardæ et fratrum meorum Daceberti et Archimbaldi", by charter dated Jan 954[20]

d)         [EMMON [Aimon] .  "Emmonis, Archimbaldi, Dagberti, Aimonis, item Aimonis, et item Aimonis…" signed the charter dated Mar 920 under which "Aymardus" donated "curtem Silviniaci" to Cluny[21].  As the first three signatories can be identified as the donor’s sons, it is possible that the first "Aimonis" was another son who is otherwise unrecorded.]   

 

 

ARCHAMBAUD [I] de Bourbon, son of AIMON [I] Seigneur de Bourbon & his wife Aldesinde --- ([930/35]-after [990]).  "Eldesen…Arkambal…" signed the charter dated Nov 950 under which "Aymo" donated property "in paugo Alvernico in fundis Donobrens in accio Noviacense, vocabulum est Longo Verno" to Cluny[22].  His birth date range is estimated from the estimated birth date range of his father.  "Aymus" donated "ecclesiam…sancti Petri…in pago Arvernico, in vicaria Donobrense, in villa Salviniaco" to Cluny by charter dated Jan 954, signed "apud castrum Borbonem" by "Aymonis et Aldesinde uxoris eius…Geraldi et Archimbaldi filiorum eius…"[23]Seigneur de Bourbon.  "Ugo…Rex Francorum" issued a charter dated Jul 995 relating to property "in terra Archimbaldi comitis cum Maliis" which names "Archimbaldo comite et Archimbaldo filio suo, dilectis consanguineis nostris et Burchardo comite"[24].  This charter is listed by Chazaud among the spurious Bourbon charters which are discussed in the Introduction to this part[25].  No other primary source has been identified which confirms a family relationship between the seigneurs de Bourbon and the early Capetian kings of France.  It is assumed that the information is incorrect.  A charter dated [11 Jul 971/10 Jul 972] records a donation by "Archembaldus", with the consent of "filiorum ac filiarum mearum", of "campum in loco…Montiliacus situm" to Cluny[26].  "Rainaldus" donated property "in vicaria Borbonensi in villa Gernente" to Cluny, for the soul of "Framerici", by charter dated Aug 974, subscribed by "Archimbaldi…"[27].  "Arnevert et Grimalt et uxores eorum Adalgarda [et] Agena et nevotus noster Giraldus" donated property "in pago Biturigo in vicaria Borbones in centena Novientense in villa Curtilas" to Cluny, for the soul of "Archimbalt seniore", by charter dated to [980][28].  "Archimbaldus" (and name variants) is named as witness in 12 other charters at Cluny during this period, dated to [954/94], Jul [961/62] ("Archunbodi"), [12 Nov 970/11 Nov 971], Nov [971/72], Jun 972, Dec 978, 20 Feb 980, [12 Nov 981/11 Nov 982], May 984, Jul 984 ("Archimbaldus, Dacbertus…Archibaldus"), [990], [993/1048] ("Archimbaldi senioris")[29], none of which can be linked directly to Bourbon.  In addition, there are two other charters which show that Archambaud [I] and Archambaud [II] were not the only persons living in the area with this name:  a charter dated to [994] names "reverendis fratribus…Archimbaldo"[30] (although none of the subscriptions in the charters listed above were shown as clerics), and a charter dated to [997/1031] records the donation by "Erchimboldus et uxor mea Girberga" and names "Rutbaldi fratris predicti Erchimbaldi" and is signed by "filiorum eius Constantii, Bernardi, Vinberti, Franconis, Adam" (which clearly refers to another family, although the actual date of the document may be later than the period we are now considering)[31]

m (before 10 Jul 961) [ROTGARDIS], daughter of --- (-[before [11 Jul 971/10 Jul 972]]).  "Archinbodus et uxor mea Rotgardis" donated land "in pago Lugdunensi in agro Tosiacensi in villa Nonedis…[et] in villa…Melerges" to Cluny by charter dated [11 Jul 960/10 Jul 961][32].  Chazaud highlights that there is nothing in this charter which links "Archinbodus" to Archambaud [I] Seigneur de Bourbon, which is correct.  However, he proceeds to identify Archambaud [I] as the Archambaud whose wife was Ermengarde (named Archambaud [II] below in this document)[33].  As the estimated birth dates shown in this document demonstrate, the chronology dictates that there must have been two generations in the Bourbon family during the second half of the 10th century and therefore that Archambaud [I] and Archambaud [II] were most likely two different persons.  The likelihood of "Archinbodus" in the [960/61] charter being Archambaud [I] can be verified by the number of references to the name Archambaud in later 10th century Cluny charters (see above), which suggest that the name was not common although not unique to the Bourbon family.  In conclusion, it does not appear unreasonable to suppose that the charter dated [11 Jul 960/10 Jul 961] does refer to Archambaud [I] and that "Rotgardis" was therefore his wife.  The charter dated [11 Jul 971/10 Jul 972], which records a donation by "Archembaldus", with the consent of "filiorum ac filiarum mearum", of property "in loco…Montiliacus situm" to Cluny[34], suggests that Archambaud’s wife had died before this date (assuming of course that "Archembaldus" can be identified as Archambaud [I], which is not beyond all  doubt). 

Archambaud [I] & his wife had [four or more] children: 

1.         ARCHAMBAUD [II] de Bourbon ([960/70]-21 May [1031/33]).  "Ugo…Rex Francorum" issued a charter dated Jul 995 relating to property "in terra Archimbaldi comitis cum Maliis" which names "Archimbaldo comite et Archimbaldo filio suo, dilectis consanguineis nostris et Burchardo comite"[35].  As noted above, this charter is listed by Chazaud among the spurious Bourbon charters which are discussed in the Introduction to this part[36]Seigneur de Bourbon.  "Archimbaldus et uxoris sue Ermengardis…" subscribed the charter dated [24 Oct 1010/23 Oct 1011] under which "Leodegarius presbiter" donated property "in pago Arvernico in agro Valentiaco in villa Saligniaco in loco…Novem Fontibus…et in villa Blanziaco"[37].  The obituary of Souvigny records the death "XII Kal Jun" of "domino Archimbaldo viride"[38]m ERMENGARDE, daughter --- (-22 Jan after 1034, bur [Souvigny]).  "Archimbaldus et uxoris sue Ermengardis…" subscribed the charter dated [24 Oct 1010/23 Oct 1011] under which "Leodegarius presbiter" donated property "in pago Arvernico in agro Valentiaco in villa Saligniaco in loco…Novem Fontibus…et in villa Blanziaco"[39].  "Archembaldus et Albuinus, Geraldus quoque et Aymo" donated the Chapelle de La Faye to the abbey of Souvigny by charter dated [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025], signed by "Archenbaldi, uxoris sue Ermengaudis et filiorum scilicet eiusdem…" and subscribed by "Geraldi nepoti eius"[40].  Archambaud [II] & his wife had four children: 

a)         ARCHAMBAUD [III] "le Jeune" de Bourbon ([1000]-16 Aug 1078).  "Archembaldus et Albuinus, Geraldus quoque et Aymo" donated the Chapelle de La Faye to the abbey of Souvigny by charter dated [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025], signed by "Archenbaldi, uxoris sue Ermengaudis et filiorum scilicet eiusdem" which repeats the preceding names[41]Seigneur de Bourbon

-        see below.   

b)         ALBUIN (-after [1048/49]).  "Archembaldus et Albuinus, Geraldus quoque et Aymo" donated the Chapelle de La Faye to the abbey of Souvigny by charter dated [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025], signed by "Archenbaldi, uxoris sue Ermengaudis et filiorum scilicet eiusdem" which repeats the preceding names[42].  "Erchenbudus, Borbonensium comes…et frater meus Albuinus et uxor mea Aurea et filius meus Herchenbaldus" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges by undated charter[43].  Huillard-Bréholles dates this charter to [1048/49][44]

c)         GERAUD (-after [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025]).  "Archembaldus et Albuinus, Geraldus quoque et Aymo" donated the Chapelle de La Faye to the abbey of Souvigny by charter dated [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025], signed by "Archenbaldi, uxoris sue Ermengaudis et filiorum scilicet eiusdem" which repeats the preceding names[45]

d)         AIMON (-30 May or 5 Jun 1071).  "Archembaldus et Albuinus, Geraldus quoque et Aymo" donated the Chapelle de La Faye to the abbey of Souvigny by charter dated [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025], signed by "Archenbaldi, uxoris sue Ermengaudis et filiorum scilicet eiusdem" which repeats the preceding names[46]Archbishop of Bourges 1030.  "Erchenbudus, Borbonensium comes…et frater meus Albuinus et uxor mea Aurea et filius meus Herchenbaldus" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges by undated charter[47].  Huillard-Bréholles dates this charter to [1048/49][48].  "Guido comes" also supported a donation to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated [1077] subscribed by "Maioris comitisse, Archimbaldi et Aimonis fratris eius"[49]

2.         [other children .  The charter dated [11 Jul 971/10 Jul 972], which records a donation by "Archembaldus", with the consent of "filiorum ac filiarum mearum", of property "in loco…Montiliacus situm" to Cluny[50], shows that the donor had four or more children in total (assuming of course that "Archembaldus" can be identified as Archambaud [I], which is not beyond all  doubt).] 

3.         [--- .  m ---.  One child: 

a)         GERAUD (-after [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025]).  "Archembaldus et Albuinus, Geraldus quoque et Aymo" donated the Chapelle de La Faye to the abbey of Souvigny by charter dated [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025], signed by "Archenbaldi, uxoris sue Ermengaudis et filiorum scilicet eiusdem…" and subscribed by "Geraldi nepoti eius"[51]

 

 

 

ARCHAMBAUD [III] "le Jeune" de Bourbon, son of ARCHAMBAUD [II] Seigneur de Bourbon & his wife Ermengarde --- ([1000]-16 Aug 1078).  "Archembaldus et Albuinus, Geraldus quoque et Aymo" donated the Chapelle de La Faye to the abbey of Souvigny by charter dated [24 Oct 1024/23 Oct 1025], signed by "Archenbaldi, uxoris sue Ermengaudis et filiorum scilicet eiusdem" which repeats the preceding names[52].  His birth date is estimated based on his date of death and bearing in mind his father's estimated birth date range.  Seigneur de Bourbon.  "Erchenbudus, Borbonensium comes…et frater meus Albuinus et uxor mea Aurea et filius meus Herchenbaldus" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges by undated charter, with the consent of "Humbaudo atque Rainmundo frater eius, qui ipsam ecclesiam tenebant", signed by "Erchenbaudus comes, Haimo presul frater eius, Albuinus frater eius, Erchenbaldus filius eius, Aurea uxor eius, Raimundus et Humbaudus frater eius"[53].  Huillard-Bréholles dates this charter to [1048/49][54].  He is named "Archinbaldi di Monticulo" in his son's charter dated 23 Jun 1077 (see below)[55], and another charter of his son confirms that Archambaud [III] founded "ecclesiam de Monticulo" [Montet] (see below).  "Guido comes" also supported a donation to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated [1077] subscribed by "Maioris comitisse, Archimbaldi et Aimonis fratris eius"[56].  "Domnus Archembaldus" requested "Durannus…Arvernorum episcopus" to donate property to the Priory of Saint-Pourçain, where "filii sui Albuini" was buried, by charter dated 20 Sep 1077[57]

m firstly [BELETRUD], daughter of ---.  Her marriage is confirmed by the undated charter under which her son "Archimbaldus, illius Archimbaldi filius qui ecclesiam de Monticulo construxit, et filius Bderrud" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges by undated charter, although it is clear that "Bderrud" must be a misread transcription[58]

m secondly AUREA, daughter of ---.  "Erchenbudus, Borbonensium comes…et frater meus Albuinus et uxor mea Aurea et filius meus Herchenbaldus" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges by undated charter, signed by "Erchenbaudus comes, Haimo presul frater eius, Albuinus frater eius, Erchenbaldus filius eius, Aurea uxor eius…"[59].  Huillard-Bréholles dates this charter to [1048/49][60]

Archambaud [III] & his [first] wife had four children: 

1.         ARCHAMBAUD [IV] "le Fort" de Bourbon ([1030]-22 Sep [1095]).  "Erchenbudus, Borbonensium comes…et frater meus Albuinus et uxor mea Aurea et filius meus Herchenbaldus" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges by undated charter, signed by "Erchenbaudus comes, Haimo presul frater eius, Albuinus frater eius, Erchenbaldus filius eius, Aurea uxor eius…"[61].  Huillard-Bréholles dates this charter to [1048/49][62].  His birth date is estimated based on his father's estimated birth date.  "Archinbaldus Burbunensis cognomina fortis filius Archinbaldi di Monticulo" donated property to Chapelle-Aude with the consent of "Archinbaldi filii mei" by charter dated 23 Jun 1077[63]Seigneur de Bourbon.  "Archimbaldus, illius Archimbaldi filius qui ecclesiam de Monticulo construxit, et filius Bderrud" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges, with the consent of "filiis suis…Archimbaldo et Petro de Blot et Aimone…Beliardis uxoris suæ…Amelii Cambo qui filiam ipsius Archimbaldi habebat…", by undated charter[64].  "Erchambaldus princeps Borbonensis et Petrus Primellus atque uxor illius Belsadis cum filiis suis Erchambaldusque de Ardenna Giraldusque frater eius atque soror eorum cum filiis suis Ingone et Erchambaldo" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by undated charter dated to [1078/95], the signatory part of the document confirming precise family relationships in the donor's family by naming "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius"[65]m BELIARDE, daughter of ---.  "Archimbaldus, illius Archimbaldi filius qui ecclesiam de Monticulo construxit, et filius Bderrud" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges, with the consent of "…Beliardis uxoris suæ…", by undated charter[66].  "Erchambaldus princeps Borbonensis et Petrus Primellus atque uxor illius Belsadis…" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95], the signatory part of the document confirming precise family relationships in the donor's family by naming "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis…"[67].  Archambaud [IV] & his wife had six children: 

a)         daughter .  "Archimbaldus, illius Archimbaldi filius qui ecclesiam de Monticulo construxit, et filius Bderrud" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges, with the consent of "filiis suis…Archimbaldo et Petro de Blot et Aimone…Beliardis uxoris suæ…Amelii Cambo qui filiam ipsius Archimbaldi habebat…", by undated charter[68].  The fact that she was married at the date of this charter suggests that she was one of her father’s older children, possibly born from an otherwise unrecorded earlier marriage.  m AMELIUS de Chambon, son of ---.  1078/1095. 

b)         ARCHAMBAUD [V] "le Pieux" de Bourbon (-after [1096]).  "Archimbaldus, illius Archimbaldi filius qui ecclesiam de Monticulo construxit, et filius Bderrud" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges, with the consent of "filiis suis…Archimbaldo et Petro de Blot et Aimone…Beliardis uxoris suæ…Amelii Cambo qui filiam ipsius Archimbaldi habebat…", by undated charter[69].  "Erchambaldus princeps Borbonensis et Petrus Primellus atque uxor illius Belsadis cum filiis suis Erchambaldusque de Ardenna Giraldusque frater eius…" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95], the signatory part of the document confirming precise family relationships in the donor's family naming "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius"[70]Seigneur de Bourbon.  "Archimbauldus Pius filius Archimbaudi Fortis" confirmed the donation by "Aldebertus sanctæ matris Bituricensis ecclesie archipresul" to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated [22 Sep 1095/31 Dec 1095] or 1096[71]m as her first husband, ---.  The name of Archambaud's wife is not known.  She married secondly as his second wife, Adélard Guillebaut Seigneur de Château-Meillant.  The second marriage is confirmed by Suger's Vita Ludovici which records that "Alardus Guillebaldi" supported the cause of "privigni sui" against "nobilem baronem Haimonem…Variam Vaccam cognomina, Burbonensem dominum" when the latter deprived "nepotem maioris fratris, Erchembaldi scilicet filium" of his inheritance[72].  Archambaud [V] & his wife had one child:

i)          ARCHAMBAUD [VI] "le Pupille" de Bourbon (-[1116])Seigneur de Bourbon, minor in 1096 when he was dispossessed by his uncle.  Suger's Vita Ludovici records that "nobilem baronem Haimonem…Variam Vaccam cognomina, Burbonensem dominum" deprived "nepotem maioris fratris, Erchembaldi scilicet filium" of his inheritance, refused a summons to appear before the king, and was forced into submission at the château de Germigny[73]

c)         PIERRE de Blot .  "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95][74].  "Archimbaldus, illius Archimbaldi filius qui ecclesiam de Monticulo construxit, et filius Bderrud" donated "ecclesiam…Mons Cenobii…in honore sancti Ursini" to the church of Bourges, with the consent of "filiis suis…Archimbaldo et Petro de Blot et Aimone…Beliardis uxoris suæ…Amelii Cambo qui filiam ipsius Archimbaldi habebat…", by undated charter[75].  After the death of "Aymon, fils d’Archambaud le Fort", "Petrus de Blovio son frère" donated "des terres sises près du chemin de Montluçon" to Saint-Ursin de Moncenoux, by charter dated to before 1120[76].  This last document raises an unresolved issue: the order of names in the other charters quoted above suggests that Pierre de Blot was older than his brother Aimon [II] Seigneur de Bourbon.  However, the last document indicates that Pierre survived his brother.  In that case, it is unclear why Pierre did not inherit Bourbon on the death of their oldest brother Archambaud [V], especially as, if he had been illegitimate, it is unlikely that he would consistently have been placed before his brother Aimon in the documentation.  Mistress (1): ---.  The name of Pierre’s mistress is not known.  Pierre had one illegitimate son by Mistress (1): 

i)          [PIERRE de Blot .  An undated charter, dated to [1165], records the settlement of a dispute between "Archembaldus de Borbonio" and "Petrus de Blot", at the court of Henry II King of England, records that Pierre claimed that their fathers were "fratres germani" which was not recognised by Archambaud[77].  It is assumed that Pierre was illegitimate if he was indeed the son of the older Pierre de Blot.] 

d)         BERNARD .  "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95][78]

e)         AIMON [II] "Vaire-Vache" de Bourbon (-before 27 Mar 1120).  "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95][79]Seigneur de Bourbon

-        see below

f)          ERMENGARDE de Bourbon .  The Gesta Consulum Andegavensium names "Ermengardim filiam Archenbaldi Fortis de Borbone" as second wife of "Fulco Rechin", recording that he divorced her[80].  The Gesta Consulum Andegavensium names her second husband "Guillelmo Jalinniaci ortam" when recording the marriage of her daughter by this second marriage[81]The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Willelmo Jalinacensi domino filio Uldini Barbæ" as the second husband of "Ermengardim filiam Archembaudi Fortis de Borbono"[82]m firstly (1070, divorced before 1076) as his second wife, FOULQUES IV "le Réchin" Comte d'Anjou, son of GEOFFROY II Comte de Gâtinais, Seigneur de Château-Landon & his wife Ermengarde d'Anjou (1043-14 Apr 1109)m secondly GUILLAUME Seigneur de Jaligny, son of ELDIN de Jaligny & his wife ---. 

Archambaud [IV] had one [possibly illegitimate] child: 

g)         EBBO .  "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95][83].  The reference in this charter to Ebbo as "filius eius" rather than "filius eorum" implies that he was not the son of Archambaud [IV] by his wife Béliarde.  If he had been Archambaud's son by an otherwise unrecorded first marriage of his father, it is likely that he would have been mentioned first in the document, and in other documentation, as he would have been his father's oldest legitimate heir.  It is more likely therefore that he was illegitimate.  m ---.  The name of Ebbo's wife is not known.  Ebbo & his wife had one child: 

i)          EBBO .  "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95][84]

2.         ALBUIN (-before 20 Sep 1077, bur Saint-Pourçain).  "Domnus Archembaldus" requested "Durannus…Arvernorum episcopus" to donate property to the Priory of Saint-Pourçain, where "filii sui Albuini" was buried, by charter dated 20 Sep 1077[85]

3.         GERAUD .  "Erchambaldus princeps Borbonensis et Petrus Primellus atque uxor illius Belsadis cum filiis suis Erchambaldusque de Ardenna Giraldusque frater eius atque soror eorum cum filiis suis Ingone et Erchambaldo" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by undated charter dated to [1078/95], the signatory part of the document confirming precise family relationships in the donor's family by naming "Erchambaldus princeps uxorque eius Belardis filiique eorum Erchambaldus et Petrus et Hammo et Bernardus de Borbonio, Ebbo quoque filius eius, necnon et Ebbo Guiereia filiique eius"[86].  The wording of this charter is difficult to interpret.  However, it is more reasonable to suppose that Géraud was the brother rather than son of the donor.  If he was the his son, their sister would probably have been too young to have had two sons during the possible date range of the charter, bearing in mind the likely marriage date of Archambaud [IV] and his second wife.  This interpretation appears confirmed by the signatory part of the charter quoted above, which does not name Géraud as one of Archambaud [IV]'s children. 

4.         daughter .  "Erchambaldus princeps Borbonensis et Petrus Primellus atque uxor illius Belsadis cum filiis suis Erchambaldusque de Ardenna Giraldusque frater eius atque soror eorum cum filiis suis Ingone et Erchambaldo" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95][87].  No record has yet been identified which names this daughter's husband.  m ---.  Two children:

b)         ARCHAMBAUD .  "Erchambaldus princeps Borbonensis et Petrus Primellus atque uxor illius Belsadis cum filiis suis Erchambaldusque de Ardenna Giraldusque frater eius atque soror eorum cum filiis suis Ingone et Erchambaldo" donated the church of Neuville to the chapter of Saint-Ursin de Bourges by charter dated to [1078/95][89]

m (1099) LUCIE de Nevers, daughter of GUILLAUME [II] de Nevers Comte de Tonnerre & his wife ---.  The Origine et Historia Brevi Nivernensium Comitum records the marriage of "Guillelmus Tornodorensis ex propria uxore unam filiam" and "Aimoni Borbonensi"[96].  "Aimo de Borbonio" rights over "boscum…Montdria" in favour of the priory of Montet, with the advice of "uxoris mee Luce", by charter dated to before 1120[97].  A charter dated 6 Sep 1395 recalls that "Aimon de Bourbon, frère d’Archambaud Sire de Bourbon" sold half "du bois de Mondrié" to the monks of Saint-Michel-du-Montet and that later "Aimon", with the consent of "son épouse Lucia", confirmed the transfer of the same property[98].  It is not known whether Lucie was the same person as the daughter of Guillaume Comte de Tonnerre. 

Aimon [II] & his wife had three children: 

1.         ARCHAMBAUD [VII] de Bourbon (-1171)His parentage is confirmed by the Gesta Ambaziensium which records that, after the death of "Oldinus dominus Jalinniaci frater Elisabeth", "Archembaudus de Borbonio filius Haimonis" confiscated the castle of Jaligny[99]Seigneur de Bourbon.  Archambaud "princeps Borbonensium", with the consent of "sa mere Lucia", granted immunities to the abbey of Saint-Menoux by charter dated 2 Mar 1123[100].  "Archambaudus et Agnes eius uxor" granted customs to "leur ville franche de Moncenoux" by charter dated to [1136/39][101]An undated charter, dated to [1165], records the settlement of a dispute between "Archembaldus de Borbonio" and "Petrus de Blot", at the court of Henry II King of England, records that Pierre claimed that their fathers were "fratres germani" which was not recognised by Archambaud[102].  The Chronicon Cluniacense records the death in 1171 of "Archimbaudus VI, filius Aymonis"[103]m (1137 or before) AGNES, daughter of --- (-after 1180).  A notice dated [25 Jan] [1137/39] or 1140 concerning the foundation of the leprosery of La Madeleine near Souvigny refers to a donation of land by "domni Archinbaudi Borbonensis et Agnetis comitissæ" sold property to the prior of Montet by charter dated to [22 Sep 1095/early Jan 1097][104].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[105], the wife of Archambaud [VII] was Agnes de Maurienne, daughter of Humbert II "le Renforcé" Comte de Maurienne et de Savoie & his wife Gisèle de Bourgogne [Comté].  No indication has yet been found to confirm this origin.  However, it is surprising that Archambaud [VII] (who was a bachelor, and probably in his mid-thirties, at the time of his marriage) should have married a spinster who would at that time have been in her late thirties (Agnes must have been born before 1104 if she was the daughter of Comte Humbert).  The reference in the charter referred to above to "Agnetis comitissæ" indicates that Agnes was of higher rank by birth than her husband.  "Archambaudus et Agnes eius uxor" granted customs to "leur ville franche de Moncenoux" by charter dated to [1136/39][106]Archambaud [VII] & his wife had two children: 

a)         ARCHAMBAUD [VIII] "le Jeune" de Bourbon (29 Jun 1140-26 Jul 1169)The Chronicon Cluniacense records the birth "1140 III Kal Iun" of "Archimbaudus"[107].  "Archimbaudus de Borbonio iuvenis" donated property to Chapelle-Aude by undated charter in which he names "Agnes comitissa Borbonis…mater eius"[108].  "Guido de Donopetro tunc dominus de Borbonio et Mahaut uxor mea" confirmed concessions granted to Souvigny by "Archinbaudi de Borbonio et Agnetis uxoris sue et Archinbaudi eorundem filii" by charter dated 1196[109].  The Chronicon Cluniacense records the death in 1169 of "Archimbaudus VII, filius sequentis Archimbaudi"[110]m ([1164]) as her first husband, ALIX de Bourgogne, daughter of EUDES II Duke of Burgundy & his wife Marie de Blois-Champagne ([1146]-Fontevrault 1192, bur Abbaye de Fontevrault).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the Pars Altera Chronici Lemovicensis of Geoffroy de Vigeois which records that "nobilis Ebo de Charento" with "Gaucherio de Salis qui fuit filius Geraldi de Mania" with "nuru sua, quæ fuit uxor Archambaldi de Borbon et soror ducis Burgundiæ" invaded Limoges, dated to 1182[111]The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not so far been identified.  Nun at Fontevrault, Abbess [1190] after her mother.  She married secondly Eudes de Deols Seigneur de Châteaumeillant.  Archambaud [VIII] & his wife had one child:

6.         JACQUES de Clermont (-9 Dec 1318, bur Champaigue, near Souvigny, église des Cordeliers).  La Mure refers to a “second” son of Duke Louis “Philippe qui mourut jeune avec le nom de Clermont l’an 1318” and was buried “avec sa mère dans l’église des Cordeliers de Champaigue en Bourbonnais[173].  The editor of the edition consulted corrects the name by quoting the inscription on their mother’s tomb which records the burials of “Jaques fiz de Monseigneur Loys de France duc de Bourbonoys et de Madame Marie de Henault” who died “1318 landemain de conception nostre Dame [9 Dec] et Phelipes sa seur[174]

Louis had [two] illegitimate children by Mistress (1):  

10.       JEAN bâtard de Bourbon (-before 24 Jan 1376, bur priory of Souvigny, Allier)Marie de Hainaut duchesse douairière de Bourbonnais” transferred her rights in the succession of “feu Isabeau de Bourbon dite de Burienne” to “Jean de Bourbon chevalier fils naturel du feu duc Louis son mari” by charter dated 31 Dec 1351[184].  He was captured at the battle of Poitiers 1356[185]"Louis duc de Bourbonnais comte de Clermont chambrier de France" donated rights "dans la terre et la justice de Bellenave" to “Jean bâtard de Bourbon“ by charter dated 22 Jun 1360[186].  Jeanne de Bourbon comtesse de Forez” donated “son châtel et maison-fort de Bessay les Gurots (le Guéraut)” to “Jean bâtard de Bourbon son frère naturel” by charter dated Apr 1363[187].  Secondary sources are contradictory regarding whether the person named in these sources dated between 1351 and 1363 was the same as Jean bâtard de Bourbon Seigneur de Rochefort.  La Mure assumes that this was the case[188], but, according to Père Anselme, the seigneur de Rochefort was the illegitimate son of Pierre Duc de Bourbon[189]Seigneur de Rochefort en Bourbonnais: "Louis duc de Bourbonnais comte de Clermont" confirmed the donation of "[le] château de Rochefort et du manoir d‘Ebreuil" made by “le feu duc de Bourbonnais“ to “Jean bâtard de Bourbon“ by charter dated 4 Jul 1369[190].  "Jean bâtard de Bourbon chevalier sire de Rochefort" and "Agnès Challeu (ou Chaillou) sa femme" donated their property to each other by charter dated 2 Jan 1373 (O.S.)[191].  "Oddin seigneur de Vendat chevalier", in the name of "Louis duc de Bourbonnais", sold “ses château, ville et terre de Vichy“ to “Jean bâtard de Bourbon seigneur de Rochefort“ by charter dated 3 Apr 1374[192]m firstly ---.  Europäische Stammtafeln records this first marriage with “NN”[193].  This may be based on Père Anselme who, when recording the third marriage of Laure de Bordeaux, names her third husband “Jean de Bourbon seigneur de Montperoux issu des anciens sire de Bourbon, dont elle fut la seconde femme[194].  However, as discussed below, whether Laure de Bordeaux was the second wife of Jean bâtard de Bourbon Seigneur de Rochefort is doubtful.  Nevertheless, Jean’s marriage in 1361 appears late for a first marriage, which does suggest that such an earlier marriage is possible.  [m secondly (1351) as her third husband, LAURE de Bordeaux, widow firstly of ROBERT Seigneur de Tanlay [Courtenay] and secondly of GUILLAUME de Montagu Seigneur de Sombernon [Bourgogne-Capet], daughter of GUILLAUME [II] de Bordeaux & his wife Simone de Chastellus (bur priory of Souvigny, Allier).  Père Anselme records that “[Laure de Bordeaux] dame de Montperoux et de Chastellus” reached agreement with “Philippe sire de Tanlay et de Ravieres et Philiberte sa femme” for her dowry after the death of “monseigneur Robert de Tanlay son...mari” by charter dated 1344[195]Père Anselme says that she married secondly “Guillaume de Montagu seigneur de Sombernon” and thirdly “Jean de Bourbon seigneur de Montperoux issu des anciens sire de Bourbon, dont elle fut la seconde femme”, adding that the latter “se qualifiant sire de Chastelus, de Marigny et de Basoche” swore homage for these seigneuries in 1351 and 1352[196].  Kerrebrouck identifies “Jean de Bourbon seigneur de Montperoux” as Jean bâtard de Bourbon seigneur Rochefort[197].  This co-identity does not appear possible in light of the later charters quoted below, unless Jean was separated from Laure before he married his [second/third] wife in 1371.  In addition, Kerrebrouck does not mention Gérard, named in the following extract as the son of Jean de Bourbon Seigneur de Montpéroux, as son of Jean bâtard de Bourbon Seigneur de Rochefort.  “Jean de Bourbon Seigneur de Montperoux” has not otherwise been identified.  Père Anselme says that Laure “étant veuve pour la troisième fois en 1374” reached agreement with “Gerard de Bourbon fils de feu son mary” concerning her rights[198].  Laure “dame de Chastellus et de Basoche, femme de feu Robert de Tanlay seigneur de Tanlay” donated property to Quincy abbey by charter dated 1381[199]Père Anselme records her testament dated 1383, a codicil dated 1384, her death “la même année” and burial “dans l’abbaye de Quincy”, her succession being shared by “Guillaume de Beauvoir son neveu et ses deux sœurs...en 1389[200].]  m [secondly/thirdly] (contract 26 Sep 1361) AGNES, daughter of PEPIN Chaleu Seigneur di Croset en Bourbonnais & his wife --- (-after 1399, bur priory of Souvigny, Allier).  The marriage contract between "Jean bâtard de Bourbon sire de Rochefort et du Breuil[-Achard] chevalier" and "Agnès fille de Pepin Challot (Chailleul) sire de Croisy (Creuset) chevalier" is dated 26 Dep 1361[201].  "Jean bâtard de Bourbon chevalier sire de Rochefort" and "Agnès Challeu (ou Chaillou) sa femme" donated their property to each other by charter dated 2 Jan 1373 (O.S.)[202].  "Louis duc de Bourbonnais comte de Clermont et de Forez…" granted dower for life ("les château et châtellenie de Rochefort, la châtellenie et justice de Genzat, la terre et justice de Servant...") to “Agnès Challoe veuve de Jean bâtard de Bourbon” by charter dated 24 Jan 1375 (O.S.)[203].  Jean & his [first/second] wife had one child: 

a)         GUILLAUME de Bourbon (-after 1376).  La Mure names “Guillaume de Bourbon qui portoit qualité de Chevalier en l’année 1376 et mourut depuis sans être marié” as the son of Jean by his wife Agnes[204].  He does not cite the primary source to which this date 1376 refers.  Assuming that, as a knight, Guillaume must have reached the age of majority, it seems more likely that he was born from an earlier marriage of his father or that he was illegitimate.  

11.       [JEANNETTE de Bourbon .  La Mure says that “l’ancien Inventaire des titres de Forez” indicates (“indique”) that Jean bâtard de Bourbon also had “une fille naturelle jusqu’ici inconnue à l’histoire...Johanneta de Borbonio” who married “messire Guichard de Chastellus chevalier seigneur de Châteaumorand” and was guardian of their children after he died, quoting an undated “note d’une prestation de fief” which is “littera feudi Johannetæ de Bourbonio, domicellæ relictæ Guichardi, quondam domini Castri Morandi, tutricis liberorum suorum...de sua domo des Landes[205].  There is no indication in this source that Jeannette was illegitimate and, as the source is undated, there is no indication that, if she was, Louis I Duc de Bourbon was her father.  m GUICHARD de Chastellus Seigneur de Châteaumorand, son of ---.]

1.         ELDIN de Jalignym ---.  The name of Eldin’s wife is not known.  Eldin & his wife had one child: 

a)         GUILLAUME de Jaligny Seigneur de JalignyThe Gesta Ambaziensium names "Willelmo Jalinacensi domino filio Uldini Barbæ" as the second husband of "Ermengardim filiam Archembaudi Fortis de Borbono"[310]Presumed relatives of this Jaligny family are named in a charter dated 1056 under which "Falco de Ialiniaco" donated property to Tournus abbey "per manum domni Willelmi fratris mei", with the consent of "uxore mea Beatrice…filiis meis Gulferio atque Itherio", subscribed by "Armanni monachi filii vicecomitis de Polognac…"[311]m as her second husband, ERMENGARDE de Bourbon, divorced wife of FOULQUES IV "le Réchin" Comte d'Anjou, daughter of ARCHAMBAUD [IV] "le Fort" Seigneur de Bourbon & his wife Béliarde ---.  The Gesta Consulum Andegavensium names "Ermengardim filiam Archenbaldi Fortis de Borbone" as second wife of "Fulco Rechin", recording that he divorced her[312].  The Gesta Consulum Andegavensium names her second husband "Guillelmo Jalinniaci ortam" when recording the marriage of her daughter by this second marriage[313]The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Willelmo Jalinacensi domino filio Uldini Barbæ" as the second husband of "Ermengardim filiam Archembaudi Fortis de Borbono"[314].  Guillaume & his wife had two children: 

i)          ELDIN de JalignyThe Gesta Ambaziensium names "Uldinum et Elizabeth" as the children of "Willelmo Jalinacensi domino" & his wife[315].  Seigneur de Jaligny.  The Gesta Ambaziensium records that, after the death of "Oldinus dominus Jalinniaci frater Elisabeth", "Archembaudus de Borbonio filius Haimonis" confiscated the castle of Jaligny[316]

ii)         ELISABETH de Jaligny (-12 Oct 1154, bur Pontlevoy).  The Gesta Consulum Andegavensium records that "Gosfridum Martellum" arranged the marriage of "Elisabeth sororem suam ex matre sua et Guillelmo Jalinniaci ortam" and "Hugoni de Calvo Monte" and gave "Ambaziacum" as her dowry[317], although this contradicts the Gesta Ambaziensium which records that Amboise came into the family with the mother of Sulpice [I].  Hugo filius Sulpicii de Caluomonte” relinquished claims to “domum apud Blesis” in favour of Marmoutier, with the consent of “Elysabeth uxor ipsius Hugonis...et Sulpitius filius eius”, in the presence of “...Hugo filius Ebrardi de Ambaziaco...”, by charter dated 1108[318].  The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Elisabeth sororem suam [Uldini]" as the wife of "Hugonis…Supplicium primogenitum"[319]m ([1103]) HUGUES [I] de Chaumont, son of SULPICE [I] Seigneur d'Amboise & his wife Denise [de Fougères] (-Jerusalem 24 Jul [1129/30], bur Jerusalem Mount Olives)

 

 

 

B.      SEIGNEURS de MONTLUÇON

 

 

1.         GUILLAUME de MontluçonSeigneur de Montluçonm ---.  The name of Guillaume's wife is not known.  Guillaume & his wife had --- children: 

a)         AGNES de Montluçon The Chronicon Gaufredi Vosiensis names "Agne filia Guillelmi de Montlusson Arverniæ castro" as wife of "Ebolus" who "appreciated songs of joy until old age"[320]A charter dated 1147 records a donation to Uzerche with the consent of "Eblone vicecomite, uxore eius Agne et filiis suis Arcambaldo, Eblone, Aimone…"[321]m EBLES [II] "le Chanteur" Vicomte de Ventadour, son of EBLES [I] Vicomte de Ventadour & his second wife Almodie de Montbéron (-after 1109, bur Montecassino)

 

 

2.         ARCHAMBAUD de Montluçon Seigneur de MontluçonA charter dated Apr 1202 records an agreement between “Archembaudus dominus Montis Lucii” and “Guidonem comitem Arvernie" for the marriage of "filiam Archembaudi primogenitam" and "Guillelmus filius comitis, vel alter filius", together with "Combralium et comitatum"[322]The testament of [his grandson] "Archenbaudus dominus Borbonensis", dated Aug 1248, names "…domini A. Montis Lucii patris matris mee"[323]m [--- de Mello, daughter of DREUX [I] de Mello Seigneur de Saint-Bris & his second wife Ermengarde ---].  Her parentage and marriage are suggested by the charter dated Nov 1242 under which [her supposed brother] “Dreux de Mello seigneur de Loches” acted as guarantor if “Archambaud de Bourbon son neveu” failed to observe the marriage convention between “Jean comte de Dreux et Marie sœur d’Archambaud[324].  This hypothesis assumes that “neveu” (presumably “nepos”) in this charter can be interpreted as “great-nephew”, bearing in mind that “nephew” is extremely unlikely given the identification of the mother of Archambaud de Bourbon and his sister Marie as noted below, and also that a more remote cousin relationship would render it unlikely that Dreux de Mello would have acted as guarantor.  The hypothesis also appears to work from a chronological point of view, in light of the 1202 betrothal of the couple’s daughter to Guillaume [X] d’Auvergne.  Archambaud & his wife had [two] children: 

a)         [daughter .  A charter dated Apr 1202 records an agreement between “Archembaudus dominus Montis Lucii” and “Guidonem comitem Arvernie" for the marriage of "filiam Archembaudi primogenitam" and "Guillelmus filius comitis, vel alter filius", together with "Combralium et comitatum"[325].  It is not known whether this daughter was the same person as Beatrix named below.  Betrothed (Apr 1202) to GUILLAUME [X] d’Auvergne, son of GUY [II] Comte d'Auvergne & his wife Cambonia de Chambon (-1246, bur Le Bouchet).  He succeeded his father in 1222 as Comte d’Auvergne.] 

b)         BEATRIX de Montluçon The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to the wife of "primogenitus Erchenbaldus [filius Guido de Dampetra]" as "filia alterius Erchenbaldi de Monte Lucionis" and in a later passage names her "Beatrici de Borbon", although in the latter the Chronicle incorrectly names her husband "Guidonem de Dampetra"[326]1215.  m ARCHAMBAUD [VIII] Seigneur de Bourbon, son of GUY [II] Seigneur de Dampierre & his wife Mathilde de Bourbon Dame de Bourbon (-killed in battle Cognat, Allier 23 Aug 1242).
