The town of Mâcon is located on the Saône river, about 15 kilometres south-east of Cluny abbey and about twice that distance south of Tournus.  It is today situated in the eastern part of the present-day French département of Saône-et-Loire on the border with Ain.  In medieval times the county lay in the southern part of the area which later evolved into the duchy of Burgundy, although administratively from the late 10th to the early 13th centuries it was ruled by a branch of the family of the counts of Burgundy.  Alix heiress of the county of Mâcon and her husband Jean de Dreux sold the county to Louis IX King of France in [1238/39].  The earliest reference which has been traced to "comitatus Matisconensis" is in a charter of Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks dated 853[1].  The earlier pagus Matisconensis covered the same territory as the bishopric of Mâcon[2].  Guillaume "le Pieux" Duke of Aquitaine was also known as Comte de Mâcon, a title which he presumably held in his capacity as Comte d'Auvergne.  Mâcon’s original dependence from the county of Auvergne is confirmed by the charter dated 825 under which Hildebaud Bishop of Mâcon granted property “in...pago Matescense villam...Cluniacus” to “Warinus comes...et uxori suæ Albanæ” [identified as Warin Comte d’Auvergne, who died in 853][3]He appointed Raculf as Vicomte de Mâcon, who witnessed a charter as such in 893[4], and whose daughter married Aubry de Narbonne who became Comte de Mâcon.  Mâcon remained under the jurisdiction of the comtes d'Auvergne, as shown by a charter of "Girbaldus", "residente quondam domno Wilelmo iuniore, comite, Matiscone", dated May 926[5], indicating Guillaume II Duke of Aquitaine who was also Comte d'Auvergne.

A.      COMTES de MÂCON

 

 

AUBRY [Alberic] de Narbonne, son of MAYEUL Vicomte de Narbonne & his wife --- (-[10 Sep] 945, bur Besançon Saint-Etienne).  A charter dated 15 Jun 911, under which Arnust Archibishop of Narbonne donated property to Saint-Paul de Narbonne, names "infantes Majolo vicecomite et uxori suæ Raymundæ...Walchario et...Albericho vicecomite", the wording implying that the parents were deceased at that date[6]A genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, names "Albericus Narbonensis" and refers to his marriage to "filiam Raculfi vicecomitis post mortem domini Bernonis Matiscensis episcopi", stating that he subsequently installed himself as first Comte de Mâcon[7]Comte de Mâcon.  "Berno episcopus" donated property to "Albericus comes" by charter dated "die Martis Kal Jan anno VIII regnante Rodulfo rege" [930] subscribed by "comes Letaldus, uxor eius Berta"[8], although, as noted below, the reference to Letaud's wife Berta suggests that this charter is misdated.  "Hugo...comes et marchio" donated property "in comitatu Belnensi...in uilla...Nolliacus et...in uilla Crisentiaco", for the souls of “genitoris nostri Richardi et Adheleidis”, in the presence of “Gilbertus comes, Albericus comes et filius eius Leotaldus et Adso noster fidelis”, by charter dated 1 Sep 936, subscribed by “...Roberti uicecomitis...[9]"Albericus comes" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated [936/41] subscribed by "Letaudi, Ermentrudis coniugis sue"[10].  The necrology of Mâcon Cathedral records the death "IV Id Sep" of "Albericus comes"[11], although this entry could alternatively refer to Count Aubry [II] (see below). 

m TOLANA de Mâcon, daughter of RACULF Vicomte de Mâcon & his wife --- (-after [941]).  The genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, names "Albericus Narbonensis" and refers to his marriage to "filiam Raculfi vicecomitis post mortem domini Bernonis Matiscensis episcopi"[12].  "Tolosane" is named as wife of Alberic in a charter of her son Letaud dated [12 Apr] 935 and "Etolane" mother of Letaud in the latter's charter dated 8 May [955][13].  "Letaudus comes et uxor mea Berta" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the souls of "patris mei Alberici…et matris mee Tolane…Irmengardis quondam uxoris sue" by charter dated to [941] subscribed by "Alberici filii sui"[14]

Comte Aubry & his wife had three children: 

1.         LETAUD [Leotold] de Mâcon (915-3 Nov 961)The genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, names "Letaudus filius eius [Alberici Narbonensis]"[15].  He succeeded his father as Comte de Mâcon

2.         HUMBERT de Mâcon (-before 958).  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres"[16].  "Leutaldus atque et Umbertus filii…Alberici [comitis]" are named in an undated charter of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon[17].  "Albericus comes…filii mei Letboldus et Umbertus" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated [930][18].  "Unberti fratris eius" consented to the donation of Letald Comte de Mâcon dated Feb 944[19].  Seigneur de Salins.

3.         ADELA [Tolana] de Mâcon (-after Jun 944).  "Attale" is named as sister of "Letaudus comes" in the latter's donation to Cluny dated Jun 944[20]

 

 

LETAUD [Leotold] de Mâcon, son of AUBRY [I] Comte de Mâcon & his wife Tolana de Mâcon (915-3 Nov 961).  The genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, names "Letaudus filius eius [Alberici Narbonensis]"[21].  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres"[22].  "Albericus comes…filii mei Letboldus et Umbertus" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated [930][23].  "Letaudus comes", his wife and their parents are named in his donation to Cluny dated [12 Apr] 935[24]"Hugo...comes et marchio" donated property "in comitatu Belnensi...in uilla...Nolliacus et...in uilla Crisentiaco", for the souls of “genitoris nostri Richardi et Adheleidis”, in the presence of “Gilbertus comes, Albericus comes et filius eius Leotaldus et Adso noster fidelis”, by charter dated 1 Sep 936, subscribed by “...Roberti uicecomitis...[25]Leuttaldus” donated “ecclesias...in villa...Gradiacus in honore Sancti Mauricii...alia in rure...Pontiliacus”, for the souls of “senioris mei Hugoni...Archicomitis...genitoris mei Alberici ac genetricis meæ Attalæ”, to the church of Besançon, with the consent of “Umberti fratris illius”, by charter dated 951, subscribed by “Widonis, Windilsmodi, Ugonis comitis Atoariorum...Alberici vicecomitis...[26].  He succeeded his father as Comte de Mâcon.  He is last named in a charter dated 961, but had presumably died before his son's donation dated Jan 962 which the latter made for the soul of his parents[27].  The necrology of Mâcon Cathedral records the death "III Non Nov" of "Letaudus comes"[28]

m firstly ([930/935]) ERMENGARDE, daughter of Comte MANASSES & his wife Ermengarde --- (-before [941]).   "Albericus comes" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [936/41] subscribed by "Letaudi, Ermentrudis coniugis sue"[29].  She is named as wife of Letaud in the latter's charter dated [12 Apr] 935, which also names both his and her parents[30].  It is possible that she was Ermengarde, daughter of Manassès Comte de Dijon & his wife Ermengarde, who are the only contemporary noble couple with these names which has so far been identified in the region.  The charter dated 14 Jan 971 under which her son "Albericus comes" donated property "in pago Matisconensi in villa…Lancus", which came to him from "Iohanne episcopo cum sorore sua Rotrude", to the abbey of Tournus may point to an alternative origin[31].  This document suggests a relationship between the bishop and the donor, especially because the bishop’s sister is named.  The identity of "Bishop Jean" has not yet been found.  "Letaudus comes et uxor mea Berta" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the souls of "patris mei Alberici…et matris mee Tolane…Irmengardis quondam uxoris sue" by charter dated to [941] subscribed by "Alberici filii sui"[32].  "Ermengardis dilettæ condam uxoris" is named in a donation made by her husband for her soul dated Feb 944[33]

m secondly ([941]) BERTA, daughter of ---.  Berta is named as wife of "Letaudus comes" in the latter's charters to Cluny dated Mar 943, Mar 944, and Mar 946[34].  The sources are contradictory when it comes to estimating the date of their marriage.  "Berno episcopus" donated property to "Albericus comes" by charter dated "die Martis Kal Jan anno VIII regnante Rodulfo rege" [930], subscribed by "comes Letaldus, uxor eius Berta"[35].  However, the source referred to above dated [12 Apr] 935 names Ermengarde as the wife of Letaud at that date.  The most likely explanation is that the former charter is incorrectly dated, especially in view of the Mâcon charter of Letaud's father which is dated [930] (see above) and which names his two sons without naming their wives.  "Letaudus comes et uxor mea Berta" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the souls of "patris mei Alberici…et matris mee Tolane…Irmengardis quondam uxoris sue" by charter dated to [941] subscribed by "Alberici filii sui"[36].  "Berte comitisse" witnessed a charter of Manassès Archbishop of Arles dated Sep 948[37].  Szabolcs de Vajay suggests[38] that Berta was the daughter of Garnier [Warnarius] Vicomte de Troyes & his wife Tetberga d'Arles, but this seems difficult to sustain chronologically.  "Lettaldus comes et uxor mea Berta" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter subscribed by "Alberici filii sui"[39].  This charter is dated to [960] in the compilation, but this must be incorrect considering the earlier references to the third wife of Letaud. 

m thirdly (949 or before) RICHILDE, daughter of ---.  "Richildis" witnessed the donation of "Leotbaldum comitis" to Cluny dated 948[40].  "Richelde" is named as wife of Letaud in the latter's donations to Cluny dated 949 and [955][41]

Letaud & his first wife had one child: 

1.         AUBRY [Alberic] [II] de Mâcon ([935/40]-[10 Sep], after 17 Nov [before 981/82]).  The genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, names "Albericus filius Letaudi comitis"[42].  "Letaudus comes et uxor mea Berta" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the souls of "patris mei Alberici…et matris mee Tolane…Irmengardis quondam uxoris sue" by charter dated to [941] subscribed by "Alberici filii sui"[43].  "Albericus" is named as son of Letaud in the latter's donations to Cluny dated 948 and [955][44].  "Albericus Matisconensis comes" names "Letaudi patris mei…[et] Ermengardis matris mee" in his donation of "ecclesiæ sancti Germani Ipgiacensis" to Cluny by charter dated Jan 962.  He succeeded his father as Comte de Mâcon"Albericus comes" donated property "in pago Matisconensi in villa…Lancus", which came to him from "Iohanne episcopo cum sorore sua Rotrude", to the abbey of Tournus by charter dated 14 Jan 971, signed by "Leotaldi, Alberici, Ermentrudis coniuge sua…"[45]"Albericus comes" donated property "in pago Matisconensis in villa… Aponiacus" to Cluny by charter dated 14 Jan 971, subscribed by "Ermentrudis coniuge sua, Leotaldi, Umberti, Odoldrici…"[46].  The necrology of Mâcon Cathedral records the death "IV Id Sep" of "Albericus comes"[47], although this entry could alternatively refer to Count Aubry I (see above).  m ([Mar 966/14 Jan 971]) as her first husband, ERMENTRUDE, daughter of [RAGENOLD Comte de Roucy] & his wife Alberade of Lotharingia ([947/52]-[5 Oct 1002/1004]).  "Ermentrudis conjuge sua" subscribed the charter dated 14 Jan 971 under which "Albericus comes Matisconensis" donated property "in Aponiaco villa" to Cluny[48].  Her marriage date is indicated by her absence from the charter of "Albericus comes Matisconensis" dated Mar 966[49].  "Ermentrudis" is named as daughter of "Alberada filia …Gerbergæ" in the Continuator of Flodoard, which does not name either her father or her husband but specifies that Ermentrudis was the mother of Agnes (Ctss de Poitou)[50]Bouchard highlights the absence of proof that the husband of Alberade of Lotharingia was Ragenold Comte de Roucy[51].  The genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, records the marriage of "dominus Guillelmus comes" with the wife of "Albericus filius Letaudi comitis"[52]Rodulfus Glaber states that "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" married the sister of "Brunone Lingonensi episcopo"[53]She married secondly (before [981/82]) as his first wife, Othon Guillaume [di Ivrea], who succeeded as Comte de Mâcon in right of his wife.  Comte Aubry [II] & his wife had three children: 

a)         [LETAUD de Mâcon .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  "Albericus comes" donated property "in pago Matisconensi in villa…Lancus", which came to him from "Iohanne episcopo cum sorore sua Rotrude", to the abbey of Tournus by charter dated 14 Jan 971, signed by "Leotaldi, Alberici, Ermentrudis coniuge sua…"[54]"Letaudi" subscribed the charter of "Albericus comes Matisconensis" dated 14 Jan 971[55].  The relationship, if any, between the donor and "Letaudi" is not specified in either document, but his priority position in the first document suggests that he may have been the donor’s son.] 

b)         [AUBRY de Mâcon .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Abbé de Saint-Paul at Besançon after 991.  "Albericus comes" donated property "in pago Matisconensi in villa…Lancus", which came to him from "Iohanne episcopo cum sorore sua Rotrude", to the abbey of Tournus by charter dated 14 Jan 971, signed by "Leotaldi, Alberici, Ermentrudis coniuge sua…"[56]The relationship, if any, between the donor and "Alberici" is not specified, but his prominent position in the list of subscribers suggests that he may have been the donor’s son.

c)         BEATRIX de Mâcon .  A manuscript genealogy, dated to the early 12th century, records "Letaldus comes Vesoncius et Umbertus comes Marisconensis fratres…ex Letaldo, Albericus…ex Alberico Beatrix, ex Beatrice Gosfrido de Castello Landonensi"[57]André de Fleury’s Vita Gauzlini records that “Albericus comes Nandonensium” donated “Alodum in Altissiodorensi territorio” to Fleury and that “Beatrix Nandonensium comitissa” donated “prædia[58].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter of her son "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum" dated 26 May 1028 (see below) approved by "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo"[59]m firstly GEOFFROY [I] Comte de Gâtinais, son of --- (-after Nov 991).  m secondly ([1000]) HUGUES du Perche, son of [FOUCOIS Comte de Mortagne & his wife Melisende Vicomtesse de Châteaudun].  Comte de Gâtinais. 

 

 

 

B.      COMTES de MÂCON (IVREA)

 

 

GUGLIELMO di Ivrea, son of ADALBERTO II associate-King of Italy & his wife Gerberge [de Chalon] ([960/62]-Dijon 21 Sep 1026, bur Dijon, Abbaye de Saint-Bénigne)Rodulfus Glaber names "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" and records that, as a boy, he was secretly stolen from the land of the Lombards and restored to his mother "with no small cunning by a certain monk"[60]"Einricus…imperator" confirmed the property of the abbey of Fruttuaria, referring to property donated by "Otto qui et Vuillielmus comes filius Adalberti nepos Berengarii regis", by charter dated 1014[61]It is assumed therefore that Guillaume was imprisoned as a child by Emperor Otto I in Italy after his father and paternal grandfather were deposed as kings of Italy.  The Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne, interpolated into the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, names "Guilelmum Ottonem et eius matrem Gerbergam" when recording that he was adopted by his mother's second husband "dux Burgundie Henricus"[62].  He adopted the name OTHON-GUILLAUME.  He succeeded in [981] as Comte de Mâcon, by right of his first wife.  He was declared heir to the duchy of Burgundy and installed as Comte de Nevers by his stepfather in 986.  He was recognised as duke of Burgundy on the death of his stepfather in 1002, but deprived of his inheritance by Robert II King of France in Spring 1003 when the latter invaded Burgundy with troops lent by Richard II Duke of Normandy.  Rodulfus Glaber records that "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" rebelled against the king [Robert II] on one occasion, supported by his son-in-law Landry Comte de Nevers[63]"Comes Otto" donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon for the souls of "Heinrici ducis qui eum loco filii adoptavit et genetricis sue Gerberge uxoris predicti ducis ac filii sui Widonis et Hermintrudis coniugis" by charter dated 1004[64].  Comte Othon continued to claim the duchy of Burgundy, but reconciled himself with the king of France in 1005, finally renouncing his claims in 1015.  He was designated comes Burgundiæ[65], presumably a descriptive title with no precise territorial significance at that time although Othon did own extensive territories in Burgundy.  “Comes Octo cognomento Vuillelmus” donated property “mihi secundum parentum successionem...infra alpes Pinninarum et flumen Padum et flumen Duriæ Bauticæ quod iuxta urbem Euoreiam” to Fruttuaria monastery, for the souls of “meæ et uxoris et filiorum et filiarum”, by charter dated 28 Oct 1019[66]The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records the death in 1027 of "Otto qui et Willelmus dictus est comes" and his burial at St Bénigne[67].  The memorial on the tomb of "Nobiliter natus Guillelmus et Otho vocatus" records his death "1027 XI Kal Oct"[68]The necrology of Autun Saint-Martin records the death “XVI Id Dec” of “Guillelmus dux Burgundie, anno 1025[69]

m firstly (before [981/82]) as her second husband, ERMENTRUDE, widow of AUBRY [II] Comte de Mâcon, daughter of RAGENOLD Comte de Roucy & his wife Alberade of Lotharingia ([947/52]-[5 Oct 1002/1004]).  "Ermentrudis" is named as daughter of "Alberada filia …Gerbergæ" in the Continuator of Flodoard, which does not name either her father or her husband but specifies that Ermentrude was the mother of Agnes[70], the latter naming both her parents in charters (see below).  Bouchard highlights the absence of proof that the husband of Alberade of Lotharingia was Ragenold Comte de Roucy[71].  Her birth date is estimated from her son by her first marriage being named in 971.  "Ermentrudis conjuge sua" consented to the donation of land "in Aponiaco villa" by "Albericus comes Matisconensis" to Cluny by charter dated 14 Jan 971[72].  The genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, records the marriage of "dominus Guillelmus comes" with the wife of "Albericus filius Letaudi comitis"[73]Rodulfus Glaber states that "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" married the sister of "Brunone Lingonensi episcopo" who supported him in his rebellion against the king [Robert II][74]"Otto comes, Irvis comitissa" subscribed a charter dated to [994] under which "Milo…uxoris mee Ermengarde" donated property to Cluny[75].  It is assumed that "Irvis" is a copyist error or abbreviation for "Ermentrudis" as no other reference to a countess of this name has been found.  Her date of death is indicated by the Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon which records a donation by "Otto comes cognomento Willelmus" with "filii eius Rainaldi" dated 1004 "pro anima Hinrici Ducis, qui eum loco filii adoptavit et genitricis sue Gerberge uxoris predicti Ducis, ac filii sui Widonis et Hermintrudis coniugis"[76].  This is presumably the donation recorded in the charter dated 1004 under which "Comes Otto" donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon for the souls of "Heinrici ducis qui eum loco filii adoptavit et genetricis sue Gerberge uxoris predicti ducis ac filii sui Widonis et Hermintrudis coniugis"[77]

m secondly (before 1016) ADELAIS, daughter of --- (-29 May 1026, bur Montmajour, near Arles).  "Otto comes et uxor mea Adila" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by two charters dated to 1015 or before (during the reign of Robert I King of France) both subscribed by "Rainaldi filii sui"[78].  "Otto comes et uxor mea Adeleidis et filius meus Rainaldus atque Otto nepos meus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [1015][79].  "Otto comes qui nominatur Willelmus" issued a charter dated 2 Nov 1023 subscribed by "Raynardi comitis, Adheleydis uxoris eius"[80].  The origin of Otto-Guillaume's second wife is not known with certainty.  Most secondary source genealogies assume that she was Adelais [Blanche] d'Anjou, widow firstly of Etienne de Brioude, widow secondly of Raymond Comte de Toulouse, divorced wife thirdly of Louis V King of the Franks, widow fourthly of Guillaume [II] Comte de Provence, daughter of Foulques II "le Bon" Comte d’Anjou & his first wife Gerberge ---.  Adelais's supposed fifth marriage is deduced from the following: Count Othon-Guillaume's wife is named Adelais in several charters[81], and Pope Benedict VIII refers to "domnæ Adeleidi comitissæ cognomento Blanchæ" with "nuruique eius domnæ Gerbergæ comitissæ" when addressing her supposed husband[82], Gerberga presumably being Count Othon-Guillaume's daughter by his first wife who was the widow of Adelaide-Blanche d’Anjou's son by her fourth husband.  However, the document in question appears not to specify that "domnæ Adeleidi…" was the wife of Othon Guillaume and the extracts seen (the full text has not yet been consulted) do not permit this conclusion to be drawn.  It is perfectly possible that Adelais-Blanche was named in the letter only in reference to her relationship to Othon Guillaume’s daughter.  If her fifth marriage is correct, Adelais would have been considerably older than her new husband, and probably nearly sixty years old when she married (Othon-Guillaume's first wife died in [1002/04]), which seems unlikely.  Another difficulty is presented by three entries dated 1018, 1024 and 1026 which appear to link Adelais to Provence while, if the fifth marriage was correct, she would have been with her husband (whose death is recorded in Sep 1026) in Mâcon.  These entries are: firstly, "Adalax comitissa mater Villelmi quondam Provintie comitis et Geriberga eque comitissa…eiusdem principis olim uxor" donated property to Saint-Victor de Marseille for the soul of their late son and husband respectively by charter dated 1018[83]; secondly, "Vuilelmus filius Rodbaldi" donated property "in comitatu Aquense in valle…Cagnanam" to Marseille Saint-Victor by charter dated 1024, signed by "Adalaiz comitissa, Vuilelmus comes filius Rodbaldi"[84]; and thirdly, a manuscript written by Arnoux, monk at Saint-André-lès-Avignon, records the death in 1026 of "Adalax comitissa"[85].  The necrology of Saint-Pierre de Mâcon records the death "IV Kal Jun" of "Adalasia comitissa vocata regali progenie orta"[86]

Comte Othon [I] & his first wife had five children:

1.         GUY de Mâcon ([982]-1004 or before, bur Dijon Saint-Bénigne)The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records a donation by "Otto comes cognomento Willelmus" with "filii eius Rainaldi" dated 1004 "pro anima Hinrici Ducis, qui eum loco filii adoptavit et genitricis sue Gerberge uxoris predicti Ducis, ac filii sui Widonis et Hermintrudis coniugis"[87]"Comes Otto" donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon for the souls of "Heinrici ducis qui eum loco filii adoptavit et genetricis sue Gerberge uxoris predicti ducis ac filii sui Widonis et Hermintrudis coniugis" by charter dated 1004[88]The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records that he was buried at St Bénigne many years before his father[89]m (before 999) --- .  The origin of the wife of Comte Guy is not known with certainty.  One possibility is that she was --- de Chalon, daughter of Lambert Comte de Chalon & his second wife Adelais ---.  This possible origin of the mother of Othon [II] Comte de Mâcon is deduced from the undated charter under which "domnus Hugo comes Cabilonensium" donated property "in pago Augustudunensi in villa Martiniacensi" to Paray-le-Monial which is subscribed by "Ottonis nepotis eius, Teudbaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[90].  The same relationship is stated in the charter dated 1018 under which "Vualterius Æduorum presul" donated property to the abbey of Flavigny subscribed by "Landricus comes, Otto comes nepos Hugonis episcopi, Tetbaldus comes nepos ipsius episcopi"[91], and in the charter dated 1020 under which "Wido clericus" donated property "in pago Cabillonense" to Cluny, subscribed by "Ugo comes et episcopus et nepos eius Otto comes…"[92].  One explanation is that "Otto comes" in these three charters was the same person as Othon-Guillaume Comte de Mâcon, and that he was nepos of Hugues Comte de Chalon because his mother Gerberge was Hugues's older half-sister.  However, as discussed in relation to the Comtes de Chalon, the theory about Gerberge's Chalon origin is far from certain.  Another possibility is therefore that the three charters refer to Othon [II] Comte de Mâcon, grandson of Otto-Guillaume, the identity of whose mother has been the subject of much academic speculation.  If this second possibility is correct, this unnamed daughter presumably died before her sister Mathilde as she did not subscribe the 1018 charter.  Other possibilities are discussed by Le Hête but the author does not refer to these charters[93].  Comte Guy & his wife had one child: 

a)         OTHON [II] de Mâcon ([1000]-[1033/41]).  The Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne, interpolated into the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, names "Ottonem" as son of "Guido", when recording that Guido died before his father "Otto Guillelmus" and in a later passage records that "filius alterius filii eius Guidonis, alter comes Otto" succeeded his paternal grandfather in "terram ultra Sagonnam", dividing the territory with his paternal uncle "comes Rainaldus"[94].  He succeeded his father in [1004], and his grandfather in 1026, as Comte de Mâcon

2.         MATHILDE de Mâcon (-13 Nov or 13 Dec 1005, bur Auxerre Saint-Etienne)Rodulfus Glaber states that "Landrico Neuernis comite" was married to the oldest daughter of "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" & his wife, when recording that Comte Landry supported his father-in-law in the latter's rebellion against the king [Robert II][95].  She is named in the charter dated to [1028/40] under which "Rainaldus…comes" donated property "in pago Nevernense…Belmontis" to Cluny for the souls of "patris mei Landrici et matris mee Matildis…"[96].  Her father gave her Nevers, which she brought as dowry to her husband.  The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 13 Dec of "Mathildis comitissa, Landrici coniux"[97]m ([989][98]) LANDRY [IV] de Monceau, son of BODO Seigneur de Monceaux-le-Comte & his wife --- (-11 May 1028).  He was invested in 990 as Comte de Nevers by his father-in-law as a reward for services.  Seneschal of France.  Comte d'Auxerre 1015. 

3.         GERBERGE de Mâcon ([985]-[1020/23])Rodulfus Glaber states that "Willemus…Arelatensis" married one of the daughters of "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" & his wife but does not name her[99].  She is named in several charters of Saint-Victor de Marseille.  "Wilelmus comes Provincie coniugisque mea Girberga cum filio nostro Wilelmo" donated property to Saint-Victor de Marseille by charter dated 1013[100].  "Adalax comitissa mater Villelmi quondam Provintie comitis et Geriberga eque comitissa…eiusdem principis olim uxor" donated property to Saint-Victor de Marseille for the soul of their late son and husband respectively by charter dated 1018[101].  "Geriberga comitissa" donated property to Saint-Victor de Marseille for the soul of "senioris mei Guilelmi comitis Provincie" and for "filiorumque nostrorum…Wilelmo, Fulcho, Jozfredus" by charter dated 1019[102]m ([1002]) GUILLAUME III Comte de Provence, son of GUILLAUME II Comte de Provence et d'Arles & his second wife Adelais [Blanche] d'Anjou (-1018 before 30 May).  

4.         RENAUD de Mâcon ([990]-3/4 Sep 1057, bur Besançon)The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records a donation by "Otto comes cognomento Willelmus" with "filii eius Rainaldi" dated 1004 "pro anima Hinrici Ducis, qui eum loco filii adoptavit et genitricis sue Gerberge uxoris predicti Ducis, ac filii sui Widonis et Hermintrudis coniugis"[103]The Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne, interpolated into the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, records that "filius eius [=comes Otto Guilelmus] comes Rainaldus" succeeded his father in "terram ultra Sagonnam" dividing the territory with his nephew "filius alterius filii eius Guidonis, alter comes Otto"[104].  He succeeded his father in 1026 as Comte Palatin de Bourgogne

5.         AGNES de Mâcon ([990/95]-Saintes 10 Nov 1068, bur Poitiers, Priory of Saint-Nicolas).  Agnes is named as daughter of "Ermentrudis" in the Continuator of Flodoard, which specifies that she was mother of "Wido"[105].  Her birth date range is estimated on the basis of the estimated birth date range of her mother.  Rodulfus Glaber states that "Willemus…Pictauensis" married one of the daughters of "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" & his wife[106].  "Agnes comitissa filia Ottonis cognomento Willelmi comitis Matiscensis, uxor…Wilelmi ducis Aquitanorum" donated property to Cluny by charter dated [1020][107]The Chronico Sancti Michaelis records that "Gaufredus Martellus Andegavensis comes" married "Agnetem comitissam Pictavensem" incestuously in 1032[108]The Chronicæ Sancti Albini records the marriage "1032 Kal Jan" of "Gaufridus comes, Agnetem comitissam incesto", indirectly indicating her origin in a later passage which records the marriage "1043 XII Nov" of "Hainricus imperator [et] filiam Agnetis comitissæ"[109].  Her origin is clarified by the Chronicæ Sancti Albini which records the marriage "1043 XII Kal Nov…apud Vesbrianim" of "Henricus imperator…filiam Willelmi comitis Pictavorum et Agnetis"[110]Geoffroy Comte d'Anjou & his wife founded the abbey of La Trinité de Vendôme by charter dated 31 May 1040, signed by "Goffridi comitis Andegavorum, Agnetis conjugis suæ…"[111].  A powerful personality, she succeeded in defeating her stepson Duke Eudes and installing her own son as Duke of Aquitaine, Comte de Poitou.  Regent of Aquitaine for her son 1039-1044.  She arranged her daughter's marriage with Emperor Heinrich III in 1043 and lived at the imperial court after this time.  "Goffredus…comes atque Agnes…uxor" donated property to the monks of La Trinité, Vendôme by charter dated 6 Jan 1049 subscribed by "Willelmi ducis Aquitanorum, Goffredi pueri fratris illius"[112]"Gaufredus Andegavorum comes…uxor mea Agnes" made a donation to the priory of Saint-Nicholas de Poitiers by undated charter which also names "eius [Agnetis] filii comites…Pictavenses"[113]A charter dated to [1060/67] recites a prior donation to Saint-Aubin d'Angers by "Hildegardis comitissa", who retained a life interest in the property which, after the death of the donor, was sold in turn to "Agneti comitissa" (recording her divorce from "comitum Gaufridum"), "comitem Gaufridum…Gaufridi nepotem" and finally "fratre eius Fulconi" who restored it to the abbey[114].  After her separation from her second husband, in 1047 she founded the abbey of Notre-Dame de Saintes, where she became a nun in 1068[115].  "Agnes" founded the abbey of Saint-Nicolas at Poitou with the consent of "ambobus filiis Guillelmi et Gauffrido" by charter dated [1050][116].  "Aquitanorum…dux Gaufridus" confirms in his charter dated [1058/68] that "mea mater Agnes…frater meus Guillelmus" were both buried in the priory of Saint-Nicolas de Poitiers[117].  The necrology of Vendôme La Trinité records the death "IV Id Nov" of "Agnes comitissa"[118]m firstly (1019) as his third wife, GUILLAUME III "le Grand" Comte de Poitou, GUILLAUME V Duke of Aquitaine, son of GUILLAUME IV "Fier-à-Bras" Duke of Aquitaine [GUILLAUME II Comte de Poitou] & his wife Emma de Blois ([969]-Abbaye de Maillezais 31 Jan 1030).  m secondly (1 Jan 1032, divorced [1049/52]) as his first wife, GEOFFROY d'Anjou, son of FOULQUES III "Nerra" Comte d'Anjou & his second wife Hildegarde [de Metz] (14 Oct 1006-14 Nov 1060).  He succeeded his father in 1040 as GEOFFROY II "Martel" Comte d'Anjou

 

 

OTHON [II] de Mâcon, son of GUY [I] Comte [de Mâcon] & his wife [--- de Chalon] ([1000]-[1033/41]).  The Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne, interpolated into the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, names "Ottonem" as son of "Guido", when recording that Guido died before his father "Otto Guillelmus" and in a later passage records that "filius alterius filii eius Guidonis, alter comes Otto" succeeded his paternal grandfather in "terram ultra Sagonnam", dividing the territory with his paternal uncle "comes Rainaldus"[119].  As discussed above, it is possible that Comte Othon was the "Ottonis" who is named in the undated charter under which "Domnus Hugo comes Cabilonensium" donated property "in pago Augustudunensi in villa Martiniacensi" to Paray-le-Monial which is subscribed by "Ottonis nepotis eius, Tedubaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[120], and the "Otto" named in the charter dated 1018 under which "Vualterius Æduorum presul" donated property to the abbey of Flavigny subscribed by "Landricus comes, Otto comes nepos Hugonis episcopi, Tetbaldus comes nepos ipsius episcopi"[121].  He succeeded his father in [1004], and his grandfather in 1026, as Comte de Mâcon.  "Ottonis adolescens comes" subscribed a charter dated 1004 under which "Flotbertus et uxor mea Rotrudis" donated property "in pago Matisconense" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[122], although "adolescens" appears to be an inappropriate word in light of Othon's likely birth date.  The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records a donation by "Higelbertus miles de villa Milleponto", who became a monk at St Bénigne before dying, signed by "Brunone episcopo, Willelmo Comite, Rainaldo Comite, ipsius filio, Ottone comite, filii eius Widonis filio" dated 1007[123]"Otto comes et uxor mea Adeleidis et filius meus Rainaldus atque Otto nepos meus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [1015][124].  He received the county of Scodingue under an agreement with his paternal uncle Renaud which provided for the division of the territories of his paternal grandfather.  "Otto comes Matisconensis" donated property "in villa Cavaniaco Molendinumque super Graonnam" to Cluny by charter dated 1030, witnessed by "Gauzelini episcopi"[125].  "Oddo comes" confirmed a donation to Cluny by charter dated 11 Aug 1031 signed by "Gausfredi filius eius, Widonis filii Gausfredi comitis"[126].  "Otto comes Matisconensis" donated property "in villa Cavaniaco" to Cluny by charter dated 1049, which names "Gaufredus filius meus"[127], the date presumably being in error if the estimated death date of Count Otto is correct as shown above.  Comte Othon lost the use of his legs in later life[128]

m [firstly] (before 1016) ELISABETH de Vergy, daughter of [HENRI de Vergy & his wife ---] (-after 1023).  Her origin is deduced from the charter dated to [15 Feb 1023] under which "Humbertus archidiaconus…avunculus meus Beraldus archidiaconus" donated property to Cluny to establish the church at Vergy, signed by "Helisabeth soror eius comitissa…cum infantibus suis Gozfredo scilicet atque Rotberto, Gibaldus nepos eius"[129], on the basis that no other Ctss Elisabeth has been identified in Burgundy at this time and that the name of her son "Gozfredo" is confirmed in other documentation.  "Otto comes Maticensis" donated property to Cluny for the souls of "patris mei Guidonis, necnon avi mei Ottonis cognomento Wilelmi et uxoris mee et filii mei Gaufredi" by charter dated to [1017/25], subscribed by "Elisabeth uxoris eius"[130].  The editor of this compilation notes that Elisabeth was Othon's second wife, maybe because he distinguishes between his unnamed "uxoris mee" and the name of the subscriber or because his son is described as "filii mei" not "filii nostri"[131].  "Otto comes…et coniux mea Elisabeth" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Ugonis vicecomitis, Willemi fratris eius"[132].  "Wigo vicecomes et uxor mea Eufemia" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Elisabeth comitissa"[133].  "Otto comes apud Matisconem civitatem" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Helisabeth uxoris eius"[134].  "Otto…comes coniuxque mea Helisabeth" donated property "in pago Linguonensi in comitatu Oscherensi in villa Fisciaco" to Cluny by charter dated 29 Jul [1030 or before], which refers to the donations being confirmed "post uxoris mee iam dicte Helisabeth discessum"[135], showing that Elisabeth predeceased her husband. 

[m secondly HELIE, daughter of ---.  "Ottonis comitis, Ilie uxoris eius…" subscribed the charter dated to [1017/49] under which "Wido" donated property to Cluny[136].  It is not certain that this refers to a second wife of Comte Othon as "Ilie" could be a derivation of Elisabeth.  It is also not impossible that it is derived from "Adelais", the name of the second wife of Othon's grandfather, Othon-Guillaume Comte de Macon, who may have been the subscriber of this charter if it is dated to the earlier part of the suggested date range.] 

Comte Otto & his [first] wife had two children: 

1.         GEOFFROY de Mâcon (-17 Dec before 1065).  "Gausfredi filius eius" subscribed a charter of "Oddo comes" dated 11 Aug 1031[137].  He and his brother witnessed the charter under which their mother and maternal uncle founded a church in the castle of Vergy in 1023.  He succeeded in 1041 as Comte de Mâcon.  "Joffredus comes" donated serfs to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1033/65][138].  The necrology of Mâcon Cathedral records the death "XVI Kal Jan" of "Gaufridus comes"[139], although this entry could alternatively refer to Count Aubry I (see above).  m as her first husband, BEATRIX, [sister of GUY Capels], daughter of --- (-[1072]).  A Cluny charter dated [1080] records that "nobilis iuvenis…Wigo…cognomina Capels" returned from Rome gravely ill but, before he died, donated property to Cluny which was subsequently claimed by "comes…Matiscensis" who had married Guy's sister, and also states that "predicta comitissa, quam iam comes reliquerat ob certas causas" married secondly "miles…Witfredus"[140].  The charter is subscribed by "Umberto de Bellojoco…uxoris eius, domni Dalmatii fratris Huberti".  Geoffroy appears to be the only Comte de Mâcon to whom this charter can refer.  There is no reference to his father's wife having a brother named Guy, nor to her having been left by her husband.  Beatrix married secondly Wilfried, chevalier.  Comte Geoffroy & his wife had one child: 

a)         GUY [II] de Mâcon ([1040]-1109).  "Widonis filii Gausfredi comitis [filii Oddonis comitis]" subscribed a charter of "Oddo comes" dated 11 Aug 1031[141].  However, it is unlikely that Guy could have been born before [1040], given the estimated birth dates of his paternal grandfather and great-grandfather.  He succeeded his father [before 1065] as Comte de Mâcon.  He resigned in 1078 (after 19 Feb) to become a monk at the abbey of Cluny.  The date is identified from two charters, the first dated 19 Feb 1078 subscribed by "Wuidonis comitis Matiscensis", the second dated 1078 under which "Wido aliquando comes Matisconensis…in monasterio Cluniaco" conferred property on Cluny, presumably on entering the abbey[142].  He became the first prior of the Abbey of Souvigny, but requested his return to Cluny in [1095].  m (before 14 Nov 1066) MAIORIS, daughter of ---.  "Guido comes" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated [1067] subscribed by "Maitris comitisse"[143].  "Guido comes" also supported a donation to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated [1077] subscribed by "Maioris comitisse"[144].  Ctss Maioris became a nun at the convent of Marcigny when her husband retired to the abbey of Cluny.  [Note: According to Europäische Stammtafeln[145], the wife of Guy [II] Comte de Mâcon was Mayor García de Navarra, daughter of García VI "él de Nájera" King of Navarre & his wife Etiennette de Foix.  The source on which this is based is not known, although it is true that her name suggests a Spanish connection.  However, "Raimundus frater meus, Armesilda et dompna Maior germanas regis…" subscribed a charter dated 25 Feb 1070 under which "Sancius rex…cum uxore mee Placentie regine" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla[146], which appears to disprove the hypothesis as Comte Guy [II] and his wife were married before that date, as shown by the charter dated [1067] quoted above.  A similar charter of King Sancho, dated 20 Nov 1071, is also confirmed by "Regimundus frater meus, Eximina et Ermesilda et domna Maior germanas meas…"[147].  The close ties between Burgundy and Spain started during the reign of Fernando I King of Castile, who established an annual rent of 120 ounces of gold in favour of the abbey of Cluny some time after 1055[148].  It is therefore not impossible that the marriage of Comte Guy with a Spanish princess of a different origin was agreed in order to provide an early symbol of this cooperation.]  Comte Guy & his wife had [four or more] children: 

i)          GUY de Mâcon (-after 1078).  Rameau cites, but does not quote or give the precise citation reference for, the epitaph of Comte Guy which records that "ses deux fils Gui et Ponce" entered Cluny at the same time as their father[149]

ii)         PONS de Mâcon (-after 1078).  Rameau cites, but does not quote or give the precise citation reference for, the epitaph of Comte Guy which records that "ses deux fils Gui et Ponce" entered Cluny at the same time as their father[150]

iii)        daughters (-after 1078).  Rameau states that "la comtesse Maitris et ses filles" entered the monastery of Marcigny when Comte Guy retired to Cluny but does not cite the primary source reference[151]

2.         ROBERT de Mâcon .  "Humbertus archidiaconus…avunculus meus Beraldus archidiaconus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [15 Feb 1023] which established the church of Vergy, signed by "Helisabeth soror eius comitissa…cum infantibus suis Gozfredo scilicet atque Rotberto, Gibaldus nepos eius"[152]

RENAUD de Mâcon, son of OTHON GUILLAUME Comte de Mâcon [Bourgogne-Comté] & his first wife Ermentrude de Roucy ([990]-3/4 Sep 1057, bur Besançon)Rodulfus Glaber names "Rainaldus" as one of the sons of "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius" & his wife[153]He succeeded his father in 1026 as RENAUD I Comte de Bourgogne, although at that time the "county of Burgundy" did not yet exist as such, the title being purely descriptive of the area in which Renaud exercised his power[154]

-        other children: COMTES de BOURGOGNE

1.         GUILLAUME de Bourgogne (-12 Nov 1087, bur Besançon).  Guillaume of Jumièges names “Adeliz” as the first daughter of “dux Richardus” and his wife “Goiffredum Britannorum comitem...sororem...Iudith”, adding that she married “Rainaldo Burgundionum comiti” by whom she had “Willelmum et Widonem[155].  He succeeded his father in 1057 as GUILLAUME I "le Grand" Comte Palatin de Bourgogne.   He succeeded in 1078 as Comte de Mâcon, when his cousin Guy [II] Comte de Mâcon entered holy orders. 

a)         RENAUD (-Palestine 1097 or Summer 1101).  "Rainaldus comes Matisconensis" made a donation to Cluny dated [1086] subscribed by "Willelmi patris mei"[156].  His father installed him in [1078] as Comte de Mâcon.  He succeeded his father in 1087 as RENAUD II Comte Palatin de Bourgogne

i)          GUILLAUME ([1085]-murdered after 3 Jan 1125).  His parentage is confirmed by his charter dated 12 Sep 1095 under which "Guillelmus comes filio Rainaldi" confirmed a donation by "mater mea Cuniza Cononis filia" to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire[157].  He succeeded his father in 1097 as GUILLAUME II "l'Allemand" Comte Palatin de Bourgogne, Comte de Mâcon

(a)       GUILLAUME ([1110]-murdered Payerne, Switzerland 1 Mar 1127).  A charter of Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon dated to [1126/43] refers to "post mortem comitis Willelmi et Alemani patris alterius Willelmi"[158].  The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising names "Gwillehelmus…puer…ex parte patris consanguineus, Conradi vero ducis sororis filius"[159].  He succeeded his father in 1125 as GUILLAUME III "l'Enfant" Comte Palatin de Bourgogne, Comte de Mâcon

b)         ETIENNE [I] "Tête-Hardi" (-murdered Ascalon 27 May 1102).  He and his brothers Raimond and Hugues called themselves sons of the "most noble count William" in a late-11th century document[160].  He succeeded in [1087] as Comte de Mâcon, Seigneur de Varasque. 

i)          RENAUD de Mâcon (-22 Jan 1148 or 20 Jan 1149)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Elizabeth sororem comitis Raynaldi de Burgundia" as wife of "Hugo comes Campanie"[161], but the primary source which confirms their parentage has not been identified.  He succeeded his father in 1102 as Comte de Mâcon, under the guardianship of his uncle Guy, who was then Archbishop of Vienne[162].  He succeeded his second cousin in 1127 as RENAUD III Comte Palatin de Bourgogne

-         COMTES de BOURGOGNE

ii)         GUILLAUME de Mâcon (-27 Sep 1155).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comes Renaldus [de Burgundia] fratrem comitem Guilelmum" when recording his marriage[163].  He succeeded in 1120 as Comte de Mâcon

-         see below

 

 

GUILLAUME [III] de Mâcon, son of ETIENNE [I] "Tête-Hardi" Comte de Mâcon [Bourgogne-Comté] & his wife Beatrix of Lotharingia (before 1102-27 Sep 1155).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comes Renaldus [de Burgundia] fratrem comitem Guilelmum" when recording his marriage[164].  He succeeded in 1120 as Comte de Mâcon.  Comte d'Auxonne 1127.  He joined the Second Crusade 1147-1149.  Guillaume enjoyed some influence in Vienne as shown by the following document: Konrad III King of Germany confirmed the rights of the archbishop and chapter over Vienne, specifying that he removed (“alienamus”) “Willelmum Matisconensem comitem” [Guillaume [III] Comte de Mâcon] from “predicta urbe”, by charter dated 6 Jan 1146[165]Raynaldus Burgundiæ comes” donated property to Besançon cathedral, with the consent of “fratris nostri Guillermi comitis et...collateralis nostræ Agathæ Lotharingiæ ducis filiæ”, by charter dated 1148[166]Regent of Bourgogne-Comté for his niece Beatrix, whom he attempted to deprive of her inheritance: one of Sigebert’s continuators records, when recording Beatrix’s marriage, that “filiam comitis Burgundionum Reinaldi” had been imprisoned by “patruus suus comes Wilhelmus” after her father died[167].  “Comes Stephanus...et fratrem meum comitem Gerardum” settled disputes with Charlieu abbey, with the consent of “matris nostræ...comitis Willelmi patris nostri et avi nostri domini Theobaldi de Treva”, by charter dated 28 Oct 1157[168]

m PONCE de Traves Dame de Traves, daughter of THIBAUT Seigneur de Traves & his wife Alix --- (-15 Apr after 1157).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Aleyde comitissa qui fuit unica heres de Treva, relicta Theobaldi de Rogemont" as wife of "comitem Guilelmum"[169].  Bouchard points out that Thibaut de Rougemont was still alive when Comte Guillaume is alleged to have married Ponce de Traves and suggests that the chronicle confused her with her mother[170].  It is more likely that Alberic confused Ponce with her sister Alix.  "Willelmus Masticonensis comes et Burgundie" donated "abbatiam de Balma" to Cluny by charter dated 14 Jun 1147, confirmed by "Poncia comitissa uxore mea et filiis meis Stephano et Gerardo"[171].  The necrology of La Charité records the death XVII Kal Mai” of “Poncia comitissa Burgundiæ[172]

Mistress (1): ---.  The name of Comte Guillaume's mistress is not known.  The name of her son suggests that she was Italian. 

Comte Guillaume [III] & his wife had two children:

1.         ETIENNE [II] d'Auxonne (-[21 Jul/early Sep] 1173).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comites Stephanum de Ultrasagonam et Gerardum Viennensem" as sons of "comes Renaldus [de Burgundia] fratrem comitem Guilelmum" & his wife[173].  "Willelmus Masticonensis comes et Burgundie" donated "abbatiam de Balma" to Cluny by charter dated 14 Jun 1147, confirmed by "Poncia comitissa uxore mea et filiis meis Stephano et Gerardo"[174].  He succeeded his father in 1155 as Comte d'Auxonne, Seigneur de Traves.  “Comes Stephanus...et fratrem meum comitem Gerardum” settled disputes with Charlieu abbey, with the consent of “matris nostræ...comitis Willelmi patris nostri et avi nostri domini Theobaldi de Treva”, by charter dated 28 Oct 1157[175]Stephanus comes Burgundie et dominus de Treve” donated land “apud Ledoniumto Tart abbey, with the consent of “Judith comitissa uxore mea”, by charter dated 1173[176]He died before mid-Sep 1173, the date of a charter under which "Girardus in Burgundia comes Matisconensis" donated property to Cîteaux in memory of "Stephanus comes frater meus"[177]m (1170 or before) JUDITH de Lorraine, daughter of MATHIEU I Duke of Lorraine & his wife Bertha [Judith] von Staufen (-19 Mar after 1173).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines in 1193 names "Aaliz mater ducis Burgundie Odonis uxor…Hugonis et Iutta mater comitis Stephani avia…Iohannis Cabilonensis" as sisters of "dux Symon et Fredericus de Bites et comes Matheus Tullensis et Theodericus"[178].  "Stephanus comes Burgundie", on leaving for Jerusalem, donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "frater meus comes Gerardus et comitissa Joeta uxor mea" by charter dated 1170[179]Stephanus comes Burgundie et dominus de Treve” donated land to Tart abbey, with the consent of “Judith comitissa uxore mea”, by charter dated 1173[180]The necrology of La Charité records the death XIV Kal Apr” of “Iootha comitissa mater comitis Stephani[181]Comte Etienne II & his wife had one child:

2.         GERARD d'Auxonne (-15 Sep 1184).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "comites Stephanum de Ultrasagonam et Gerardum Viennensem" as sons of "comes Renaldus [de Burgundia] fratrem comitem Guilelmum" & his wife[183].  "Willelmus Masticonensis comes et Burgundie" donated "abbatiam de Balma" to Cluny by charter dated 14 Jun 1147, confirmed by "Poncia comitissa uxore mea et filiis meis Stephano et Gerardo"[184].  He succeeded in 1147 as Comte de Mâcon

[m secondly] (bigamously [1196/98]) BLANDINE de Cicon, daughter of --- de Cicon & his wife --- (-after Nov 1208).  Courcelles states that Etienne married “Blandine de Cicon”, having learned of his consanguinity with his first wife Beatrix de Chalon, before that first marriage was annulled, the nullity of both marriages being declared subsequently[203].  He does not cite the source on which this information is based.  Stephanus comes Burgundiæ” granted property “apud Sistum et Fresne Sancti Mammeris et Torreres et Novamvillam” to “Stephano filio meo de Blandina de Cicons” and “Blandina mater eiusdem Stephani...quamdiu vivet”, provided that she would retain only half “si...capere maritum voluerit”, with the consent of “Iohannes filius meus”, by charter dated Nov 1208[204]

m thirdly (before 1212) AGNES de Dreux, daughter of ROBERT [II] Comte de Dreux & his wife Yolande de Coucy ([1195]-19 Sep 1258).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names one of the seven daughters (mentioned fourth in the list) of "comiti de Brana Roberto" & his wife Yolande as "Agnes" specifying that she married "in Burgundia…comiti Stephano patri Iohannis Cabilonensis"[205].  “Estiennes cons de Bourgoigne et…Jehans cons de Chalon et…Agnes famme le conte Esteveon” granted rights to the inhabitants of Auxonne by charter dated 1229[206].  “Ioannes comes Burgundiæ et Cabilonensis” exchanged property with “domino et consanguineo meo Hugone Duci Burgundiæ”, with the consent of “Mathildis uxor dicti comitis et comes Stephanus pater dicti comitis Cabilonens. et Agnes uxor eiusdem comitis Stephani et Hugo filius predicti comitis Cabilon.”, by charter dated 1237[207].  The necrology of the abbey of La Charité records the death XIV Kal Oct” of “Agnes comitissa de Axona[208]

[m fourthly ([bigamously?] before 1218) MARGUERITE Dame d'Oiselles, sister of ISABELLE Dame d'Amboise, daughter of ---.  The marriage is referred to by Bouchard based on a manuscript in the Bibliothèque Nationale[209].  If it is correct, Comte Etienne must have been separated from his third wife soon after their marriage (unless this fourth marriage was bigamous, like Etienne’s second marriage), but no record of this has been found.  In any case, the charter dated 1229 which names Etienne’s living third wife with her husband appears to confirm that his third marriage was not dissolved and that such a fourth marriage would have been invalid.  The only possible "Isabelle Dame d'Amboise" during this period was Isabelle de Blois Ctss de Chartres, daughter of Thibaut V Comte de Blois et de Chartres, who married Sulpice [III] Seigneur d'Amboise before 1196[210].  Her sister Marguerite succeeded their father as Ctss de Blois in 1218.  No record has been found that she was also "Dame d'Oiselles".  In any case, she was married to her third husband Gauthier [II] Seigneur d'Avesnes from some time after 1200 until she died in 1230.  There is therefore no clear explanation for the reference in the document discovered by Bouchard.] 

Etienne III & his first wife had five children: 

1.         ETIENNE d'Auxonne (-shortly after 1204).  A charter dated 1197 records the agreement between “Stephanus comes Auxone…assensu Beatricis uxoris mee et Stephani filii mei" and "Odo dux Burgundie" concerning "Auxonam villam"[211].  "Stephanus comes Burgondie et dominus Treve" made donations to the church of St Marcel, Chalon by charter dated 1201 which names "comes Stephanus pater meus…et…Stephani filii mei"[212]

2.         AGNES d'Auxonne (-[1218/23]).  Her parentage is indicated by the charter dated Jan 1261 under which “Jehans cuens de Borgoigne et sire de Salins” confirmed homage by “Ameys de Monbeliard sires de Monfacon, nostre nies” to “la contesse Lore, nostre fome[213].  It is also indicated by the charter dated Jul 1237 under which [her brother] “Joannes comes Burgundiæ et dominus Salinensis” granted property “in Puteo meo de Salino” to “Amedeo domino Montisfalconis nepoti meo[214]"Ricardus comes Montisbiligardis" confirmed a donation to Bellevaux abbey, made by "Richard Montisfalconis et Amedei patris mei", with the consent of "uxore mea Agnete et filiis meis Theoderico, Amedeo et Stephano", by charter dated 1218[215].  Her absence from her husband’s charter dated 1223 suggests that she had died before that date.  m ([1200/05]) RICHARD [III] Comte de Montbéliard, son of AMEDEE de Montfaucon Comte de Montbéliard & his first wife Beatrix --- (-17 Jun 1227). 

3.         CLEMENCE d'Auxonne (-after 1235).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  Abbess of Baume, resigned.  m (1212) BERTHOLD V Herzog von Zähringen, son of BERTHOLD IV Herzog von Zähringen & his first wife Heilwig [von Froburg] ([1160]-18 Feb 1218, bur Freiburg Münster).

Etienne III & his second [wife] had one [illegitimate] child:

Etienne III & his fourth [wife] possibly had [one [illegitimate] child]: 

7.         [SIMON .  According to Bouchard, he and his brother Etienne were sons of their father's third or fourth marriages[227].  Clearly that was not the case with Etienne (see above).  In the case of Simon, Bouchard cites sources which she says indicate that he was Seigneur d'Oyselles.  “Oyselles” would indicate a connection with his supposed father’s fourth wife, but the sources cited by Bouchard do not appear relevant: in one of them Simon Seigneur de Joinville (second husband of Beatrix d’Auxonne) names “fratrem meum Iohannem comitem Cabilonensem”, while the others make no reference either to Simon or to Oyselles[228].  Unless further information comes to light, it is suggested that this Simon never existed.]

W. comitis Viennæ et Matisconis primogenitus” settled a dispute between his father and Tournus, referring to “mater mea et uxor mea” (both unnamed), by charter dated 1211[279].  "Guigona relicta Gerardi quondam domini Vienne" relinquished her rights in the county of Forez to "G. comes Nivernensis et Forensis frater meus" by charter dated Nov 1230[280].  Dame de Marclop en Forez.  "G. domina de Marclopeio soror nobilis G. comitis Nivernensis et Forensis" donated property to the priory of Saint-Rambers en Forez, by charter dated 30 Dec 1230[281].  Comte Géraud [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)         ALIX de Vienne ([1205/15]-25 Jul or 23 Aug [1258/61]).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines refers to, but does not name, the only daughter of "Gerardus Viennensis comitis filius" & his wife, and names her husband "unus fratrum Philippe comitisse Barrensis Iohannes", specifying that he thereby became "comes Masticonensis"[282].  Her birth date range shown above is speculative based on the date range of her marriage.  She succeeded her father in [1224] as Ctss de Mâcon, [titular] Ctss de Vienne.  A seal confirms that she and her husband held both the counties of Mâcon and Vienne, reading “Johannis de Brana cois Vienne et de Mascon[283].  The latest date of her marriage is established by a charter dated Aug 1226 under which her husband donated property to Guy Chevrier[284].  The following charter indicates that the county of Vienne was transferred to Alix’s paternal uncle Henri before Sep 1227: “Henricus comes Viennensis” noted the fief held by “domino Petro de Hormont” from “consanguineo et domino meo Theobaldo comite Campaniæ...apud Barrum super Albam” by charter dated Sep 1227[285].  “Reginaldus frater Guillelmi Viennensis et Matisconensis comitis” donated property “apud Montem Bertaudi” to “Johanni Matisconensi comiti et Alaydi nepti meæ uxori eiusdem Johannis comitis” by charter dated Jul 1228[286].  “Johannes comes Matisconensis et nobilis domina A. uxor mea filia bonæ memoriæ domini Girardi de Viennæ” made donations to Tournus, including rights in the wood “Mortuum vocatur”, by charter dated 11 Nov 1233[287].  A charter dated Jun 1235 records that “Johannes comes Matisconensis et Aalis comitissa Matisconensis” acquired “gardam de Cheveriaco” from “fideli suo Stephano domino de Vilars[288].  “A. comitissa Matisconensis...et J. comes Matisconensis dominus et maritus noster” relinquished their rights to revenue from Champagne in favour of “domino Hugone de Antigneio” who renounced rights “in parte uxoris suæ materteræ nostræ in comitatu Matisconensis” by charter dated Oct 1235[289].  “Johannes comes Matisconensis et…Aales comitissa eius uxor” agreed the sale of “comitatum Matisconensem” to Louis IX King of France by charter dated Feb [1238/39][290], presumably to fund his crusading journey.  The necrology of Maubuisson records the death "VIII Kal Aug" of "Alaidis quondam comitisse Matisconensis"[291]Gallia Christiana records that Alix became Abbess of Notre-Dame du Lys, near Melun in 1246, and her death 23 Aug [1258/61] (no primary source cited)[292]m ([1218/Aug 1226]) JEAN de Dreux, son of ROBERT [II] "le Jeune" Comte de Dreux & his second wife Yolande de Coucy (1198-Tripoli [Jan/Apr 1240], but Tripoli Hospitallers).  Comte de Mâcon, [titular] Comte de Vienne, by right of his wife.  As noted above, the county of Vienne was transferred to his wife’s paternal uncle Henri soon afterwards.  Johannes comes Matisconensis et…Aales comitissa eius uxor” agreed the sale of “comitatum Matisconensem” to Louis IX King of France by charter dated Feb [1238/39][293], presumably to fund his crusading journey.  William of Tyre (Continuator) names "Johan de Drues conte de Mascon" among those who took part in the crusade from France which landed at Acre in 1239[294].  In a later paragraph, William of Tyre (Continuator) records that "Johans li cuens de Mascon" died at Tripoli and was buried “ou mostier del Ospital de Saint Johan”, in early 1240 from the context[295]

2.         GUILLAUME de Vienne (-1255).  Canon at Mâcon.  Doyen of St Etienne de Besançon.  [Titular] Comte de Vienne, in succession to his brother Henri.  He was excommunicated by Pope Gregory IX 22 Mar 1233 for his misdemeanours.  "Wilelmus Viennensis quondam filius Wilelmi Matisconensis et Viennensis comitis" donated property to the church of Besançon Saint-Etienne, for the souls of "fratrum suorum Gerardi et Henrici piæ recordationis", by charter dated 1235[296]He left the church to marry[297].  “W. cuens de Vienne” guaranteed payment by “monseigneur Perron de Bormont” to “monseigneur le Roy de Navarre”, just as “ses peres...estoit homme, mon frere Henri Comte de Vienne”, by charter dated Mar 1247[298].  “W. cuens de Vienne” guaranteed payment by “monseigneur Perron de Bormont” to “monseigneur le Roy de Navarre”, just as “ses peres...estoit homme, mon frere Henri Comte de Vienne”, by charter dated Mar 1247[299].  The following charter indicates that Guillaume ceased to be Comte de Vienne before 1250: "Hugo comes de Vienna dominus Pagneii" donated property to the abbey of Mont-Sainte-Marie, for the souls of "patris mei Wilelmi [error for Hugonis] comitis Viennensis et matris meæ Beatricis", by charter dated 1250 which names "Wilelmum comitem Viennensem avunculum meum"[300]The necrology of Mâcon records the death of “Guillelmo comite Viennensi, tunc decano Bisuntinensi[301]m firstly (1243) AGNES de Ferrette, daughter of ULRIC [II] Comte de Ferrette [Pfirt] & his first wife [--- de Belvoir] .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  m secondly (before 6 Jun 1249) as her first husband, ISABELLE de Lorraine, daughter of MATHIEU II Duke of Lorraine & his wife Catherine de Limbourg ([1231/34]-May 1266).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and two marriages has not been identified.  She married secondly (1257) as his first wife, Jean de SalinsJehans cuens de Borguogne et sires de Salins” donated “Rochefort...Chevigny et...Bielne” to “Jehanz notre fil” in view of his marriage to “Ysabel srour Ferri duc de Lorrainne qui fut feme Guillaume cay en arriers conte de Vianne”, by charter dated Jun 1256[302]

3.         HENRI de Vienne (-killed Geneva 19 May 1233).  “Scolastica Viennensis et Matisconensis” donated property to “abbatia Miratorii” where she chose to be buried, with the consent of “mariti mei Guillelmi et filiorum meorum Girardi et Henrici”, by charter dated 23 Dec 1208[303].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Henrico Viennensi frater Gerardi iam defuncti" when recording that he and "Iohanne Cabilonensi filio comitis Stephani" captured "comitis Barrensis" in 1225 "ante natale Domini"[304].  Seigneur de Montmorot et de Vadans. [Titular] Comte de Vienne: “Henricus comes Viennensis” noted the fief held by “domino Petro de Hormont” from “consanguineo et domino meo Theobaldo comite Campaniæ...apud Barrum super Albam” by charter dated Sep 1227[305].  The memorial of Abbé Bérard records the death “apud Gehenuam...XIV Kal Jun” 1233 of “Henricus comes Viennæ[306].  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines records that "Henricus de Vienna" was killed "in Burgundia" in 1233[307]Betrothed (1216) to MARGUERITE de Beaujeu, daughter of GUICHARD [IV] Seigneur de Beaujeu & his wife Sibylle de Hainaut [Flanders] (-16 Nov ----).  "Guichardus Belli Joci dominus" names his daughters "Agnetam primogenitam nostram…filiam autem nostram Margaritam…Philippam autem filiam nostram…minorem autem filiam nostram Sibillam", providing for the betrothal of Marguerite to "Henrico filio comitis Willelmi Masconensis" in his testament dated 18 Sep 1216[308]m as her first husband, ELISABETH de Salins, daughter of JEAN [I] "l'Antique/le Sage" Comte de Chalon & his first wife Mathilde de Bourgogne (-Château de Vadans 31 Mar 1277).  Iohannes comes Burgundie et Cabilonis” confirmed a donation to la Charité made by “Elisabet filia mea uxor quondam Henrici comitis Viennensis” by charter dated 1233[309]"Joannes comes Burgundie et Cabilonis" confirmed a donation to the abbey of la Charité by "Elizabeth filia mea, uxor quondam Henrici comitis Viennensis" by charter dated 1242[310]The primary source which confirms her [second] and third marriages has not been identified.  She married [secondly (1233 or after, separated before 1248) as his first wife, Ulric [II] Comte de Ferrette,] and [thirdly] (before Apr 1241) Henri de Vergy Seigneur de Mirebeau

No proof has been found to confirm the parentage of the following person.  Babey suggests that he was closely related to the Mâcon family, and may have been an illegitimate son of Guillaume [IV] Comte de Mâcon[313].  He bases his suggestion on onomastics, Hugues’s apparent succession to Guillaume de Vienne (son of Guillaume [IV]) as canon at Mâcon, his close connection with Cluny, and his having a personal seal which indicates membership of an influential family.  Babey analyses possible families named Mirebel in Burgundy, without identifying references to this Hugues in any of them[314].  If Hugues was related to the Mâcon family, the chronology suggests that he could have been the illegitimate son either of Guillaume [IV] or of one of Guillaume [IV]’s sons. 

 

1.         HUGUES de Mirebel (-16 May 1255).  Canon at Mâcon.  He constructed the parish church of Saint-Albain at Mâcon, as noted below.  "Hugo de Mirebello precentor Matisconensis" promised Cluny the reversion of property which he received from Chartres ("nos prebendam, quam nobis in Carnotensi ecclesia concesserunt") by charter dated Feb 1235, sealed by his personal seal[315].  "Hugo de Mirebello cantor" and others noted an exchange of property between Cluny and Mâcon abbeys involving "nobilis vir J. dominus Branceduni" and others by charter dated 31 Jan 1240[316].  The necrology of Mâcon records the death 16 May 1255 of “Hugo de Miribello cantor huius ecclesiæ” and his donation, noting also that he constructed “apud Sanctum Albanum...aulam lapideam et multa alia bastimenta[317]

 

 

 

E.      VICOMTES de MÂCON

 

 

1.         RACULF (-after 893).  A document of Lothar II King of Lotharingia dated 865 relating to the king's reacceptance of his wife Theotberga names "de comitibus Milo, Ratherius, Erlandus, Theutmarus, Weremboldus, Rocolfus comes" as those swearing allegiance[318].  Vicomte de Mâcon .  Guillaume "le Pieux" Duke of Aquitaine appointed Raculf as Vicomte de Mâcon.  "Raculfi vicecomitis" signed a charter dated [1/9] Nov 893 under which "Hava…Christi famula" gave "quondam villam meam…Cluniacum…in pago Matisconense" to "Wilelmo fratri meo"[319]m ---.  The name of Raculf's wife is not known.  Raculf & his wife had one child: 

a)         TOLANA de Mâcon (-after [941]).  The genealogy of the Comtes de Mâcon, included in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon, names "Albericus Narbonensis" and his marriage to "filiam Raculfi vicecomitis post mortem domini Bernonis Matiscensis episcopi", after which he made himself first Comte de Mâcon[320].  "Tolosane" is named as wife of Alberic in a charter of her son Letaud dated [12 Apr] 935 and "Etolane" mother of Letaud in the latter's charter dated 8 May [955][321].  "Letaudus comes et uxor mea Berta" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the souls of "patris mei Alberici…et matris mee Tolane…Irmengardis quondam uxoris sue" by charter dated to [941] subscribed by "Alberici filii sui"[322]m AUBRY [Alberic] de Narbonne Comte de Mâcon, son of MAYEUL Vicomte de Narbonne & his wife --- (-[10 Sep] 945, bur Besançon Saint-Etienne). 

 

2.         ETIENNE (-after 923).  Vicomte de Mâcon.  Vicomte Etienne subscribed a charter dated to before 923 relating to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon[323]

 

 

MAYEUL [II], son of [MAYEUL [I] Vicomte de Narbonne & his wife Raymonde ---] (-[Jun 949/20 Apr 950])Vicomte de Mâcon.  The parentage of Vicomte Mayeul is not known, but it looks likely that he was an otherwise unknown younger brother of Aubry Comte de Mâcon.  His name, as well as the use of the names Gauthier, Raymonde and Aubry among his descendants, indicates a close connection with the family of the vicomtes de Narbonne.  From a chronological point of view, it is probable that he was of the same generation as Aubry Comte de Mâcon.  It would also make sense that Comte Aubry appointed his younger brother as his vicomte when he arrived in Mâcon.  It does not appear likely that Mayeul [II] was the same person as shown in the document TOULOUSE NOBILITY as Mayeul [III], as a charter names the wife of Mayeul [II] as Landrada, whereas another charter names the two wives of Mayeul [III] as Esther and Ranilo.  Vicomte Mayeul is named in an undated charter relating to the inheritance of Landry, in the cartulary of Saint-Vincent de Mâcon[324].  Vicomte Mayeul subscribed a charter dated to 936 relating to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon[325].  “Leotaldi comite, Maioli vicecomiti…” subscribed a charter dated Jun 949 under which “Narduinus et uxor mea Aya” donated property to Cluny[326], although the charter dated 4 May 948 which names “Vualterium vicecomitem” (see below)[327] suggests that Mayeul’s son had already succeeded his father as vicomte by that date, indicating presumably that one or other of these charters is misdated. 

m LANDRADE, daughter of ---.  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 20 Apr 950 under which “Vualterius” granted property “in pago Matisconense in agro Fusciacense in villa Davagiaco…Modoenus patri meo Magiolo et matri mee Landradane donavit” to “soro mea Deo sacrata Raimodis[328]

Mayeul & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         GAUTHIER (-after 16 Jun 961).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 20 Apr 950 under which “Vualterius” granted property “in pago Matisconense in agro Fusciacense in villa Davagiaco…Modoenus patri meo Magiolo et matri mee Landradane donavit” to “soro mea Deo sacrata Raimodis”, subscribed by “Teudoni qui consensit[329]Vicomte de Mâcon.  A charter dated 4 May 948 noted obligations to Cluny of “Vualterius” relating to property “in villa Verchesoni et in Galna seu in Petrolio”, in the presence of “Vualterium vicecomitem…et monachi…Maiolus[330].  “Leotaldi comitis…Vualterii vicecomitis…” subscribed a charter dated 17 & 20 Apr 950 under which “duas feminas sorores…Agi…Ettela” recognised obligations to Cluny relating to property “in pago Matisconense, in villa Davagiaco[331].  "Leutaldi imperatorii comitis" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [937/62] subscribed by "…Walterii vicecomitis, Alberici vicecomitis"[332].  "Walterius vicecomes" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [954/62][333].  "Letaudi comitis et fidelibus suis Walterium vicecomitem et Nardinum atque Raterium necnon et Rotbertum" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [954/60][334].  A charter dated 16 Jan 961 noted obligations to Cluny of “Vulflays…et uxore sua Constantia” relating to property “in villa Vinzellas”, in the presence of “Leotaldi comitis, cum filio suo Alberico, Vualterius vicecomes…[335]m ---.  The name of Gauthier’s wife is not known.  Gauthier & his wife had [one possible child]:

a)         [AUBRY [Alberic] (-after [937/62]).  Vicomte de Mâcon.  "Leutaldi imperatorii comitis" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [937/62] subscribed by "…Walterii vicecomitis, Alberici vicecomitis"[336].  The presence of two vicomtes in this charter suggests that the second may have been appointed as associate by the first, in which case it is likely that they were father and son.] 

2.         RAYMONDE (-after 20 Apr 950).  “Vualterius” granted property “in pago Matisconense in agro Fusciacense in villa Davagiaco…Modoenus patri meo Magiolo et matri mee Landradane donavit” to “soro mea Deo sacrata Raimodis” by charter dated 20 Apr 950[337]

3.         [TEUDOIN (-after 20 Apr 950).  “Vualterius” granted property to “soro mea Deo sacrata Raimodis” by charter dated 20 Apr 950, subscribed by “Teudoni qui consensit[338].  The fact that Teudoin was the only person noted as consenting to the transaction suggests that he had a personal interest in the property in question, presumably as co-heir which could mean that he was Gauthier’s younger brother, although no proof has been to corroborate this hypothesis.] 

 

 

Two possible brothers: 

1.         NARDUIN (-after 16 Oct 982)Vicomte de Mâcon.  A charter dated 1 Jun 964 relates to a property dispute between “Giroldus et uxor sua Gotdoltrudis” and “Aremberto et uxore sua Adalgardis”, in the presence of “Alberici comitis et Nardoini vicecomitis…[339].  “Albericus…comes” donated a servant to Cluny by charter dated Mar 966, subscribed by “…Norduini vicecomiti…[340]"Narduinus" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire by charter dated 16 Oct 982, subscribed by "Wigonis vicecomitis et uxore sua Eufemia"[341]m [AYA, daughter of ---.  It is possible that Narduin was the same person as “Narduinus et uxor mea Aya” who donated property to Cluny by charter dated Jun 949[342].  If this is correct, the death date of their daughter (see below) suggests that the couple must have been recently married at the date of that document.]  [m JUDITH, daughter of ---.  It is also possible that Narduin Vicomte de Mâcon was the same person as "Narduinus et uxor eius Iudit" who donated property to Tournus, for the souls of "…fratris sui Suggerii", to the abbey of Tournus by charter dated 978 or 981[343]Narduin & his wife had [one] child: 

a)         EUPHEMIA (-after 1030).  "Wigonis vicecomitis et uxore sua Eufemia" subscribed the charter dated 16 Oct 982 under which "Narduinus" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire[344]"Wigo [et]…Eufemia uxor mea" made a joint donation to Cluny dated 1030 for the souls of his parents and brother, which also names “Narduino vicecomiti et filie eius Eufemie[345].  "Wigo vicecomes et uxor mea Eufemia" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Elisabeth comitissa"[346]m (before 16 Oct 982) GUIGUES [I] Vicomte de Lyon, son of BERARD & his wife Blismodis --- (-after 1030). 

2.         [SUGER (-before [981]).  It is also possible, as noted above, that Narduin Vicomte de Mâcon was the same person as "Narduinus et uxor eius Iudit" who donated property to Tournus, for the souls of "…fratris sui Suggerii", to the abbey of Tournus by charter dated 978 or 981[347].] 

 

 

1.         ERLEBAUD (-after Jul 1000).  Vicomte de Mâcon.  "Erlebaldus vicecomes et Gislardus" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated Jul 1000[348].  This charter is dated during the period in which Wigo is recorded as Vicomte de Mâcon.  It is not certain whether Erlebaud was also vicomte in Mâcon or in another county.  If the former is the case, it would appear that there were two vicomtes in Mâcon at the same time. 

 

2.         ELDEBERT (-after 1022).  Vicomte de Mâcon.  "Eldeberti vicecomitis…" subscribed a charter dated 1022 (before 20 Oct) under which “Ademarus” donated property “ecclesia…Testorius…in aice Subdionense” to Cluny[349]

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         HUGUES (-after [1018/30]).  ["Ugo" donated property “capella Sancta Maria…in monte Monmelardo” to Cluny by charter dated 984 (before Apr)[350].  "Hugo atque Artaldus filius meus" donated property “in pago Augustudunensi…Mons Malardus cum ecclesia” to Cluny by charter dated Apr 984[351].  As pointed out below, it is not certain that these two charters relate to the same Hugues who was later vciomte de Mâcon, although the apparent inheritance of the vicomté by Hugues’s supposed grandson Archambaud suggests that this is probably the case.  Vicomte de Mâcon.  "Otto comes…et coniux mea Elisabeth" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Ugonis vicecomitis, Willemi fratris eius"[352].  "…Ugo vicecomes…" subscribed that charter dated 1019 under which "Hugo episcopus Autisiodorensium" donated property to Cluny[353]m ---.  The name of Hugues’s wife is not known.  Hugues & his wife had [one] child: 

a)         [ARTAUD (-before 1037).  "Hugo atque Artaldus filius meus" donated property “in pago Augustudunensi…Mons Malardus cum ecclesia” to Cluny by charter dated Apr 984[354].  It is not certain that Artaud was the son of Vicomte Hugues.  However, the apparent inheritance of the vicomté de Mâcon by Artaud’s son Archambaud suggests that this is probably the case.  m ---.  The name of Artaud’s wife is not known.  Artaud & his wife had one child:

i)          ARCHAMBAUD (-6 Aug [1039/40]).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 1037 under which "Archimbaldus vicecomes" donated property "ecclesiam…beati Laurentii martyris…in pago Matisconensi…[et] in villa..Vigoseto" to Cluny, on leaving for Jerusalem, the same document also confirming the donation of property “de curte Monmalardis” made by “avus meus Hugo et pater meus Artaldus[355]Vicomte de Mâcon

m BEATRIX, daughter of ---.  "Beatrix" donated property "in pago Lucdunensi in loco…Salzeto" to Cluny by charter dated to [1040], signed by “Beatricis, uxor Archimbaldi vicecomitis nuper defuncti[360]

Archambaud & his wife had two children: 

1.         HUGUES “lo Blans/Albus” (-25 Oct ----).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified, although the names given to his sons indicates that this family connection is probably correct.  Vicomte de Mâcon.  "Hugonis vicecomitis…" subscribed a charter dated 17 May & 24 Aug 1067 under which "Willelmus et uxor mea Aimeruz…" donated property “ecclesiam beatissime…martiris Genivere” to Cluny[361].  “Vicecomes Ugo” donated property “capellam B. Andreæ…in vicecomitatu” to Saint-Pierre de Mâcon, with the consent of “Widone comite seniori meo”, undated but dated to [1065/78] because of the mention of Comte Guy[362].  The necrology of Saint-Pierre de Mâcon records the death “VIII Kal Nov” of “Ugo vicecomes, qui reddidit…capellam sancti Andreæ cum vicaria, annuente Vuidone comite[363]m ---.  The name of Hugues’s wife is not known.  Hugues & his wife had two children:

Chapter 3.    BEAUJEU

 

 

Beaujeu, in the area known as Beaujolais, is located about 20 kilometres south-west of Mâcon and the same distance north-west of Villefranche-sur-Saône, in the present-day French département of Rhône, arrondissement Villefranche-sur-Saône, canton Belleville.  In medieval times, the area developed semi-autonomously but was linked to the counties of Forez and Lyon to the south and to the duchy of Burgundy to the north.  It is possible that the Seigneurs de Beaujeu were related to the comtes de Lyon et de Forez.  Samuel Guichenon, in his Histoire de la Souverainté de Dombes written in 1662, cites earlier secondary sources which suggest that they descend from "Umfred, fils d'un comte de Lyon et de Forest, son frère, inhumés en l'église de Saint-Irénée de Lyon".  This is based on an epitaph (disappeared by the date of Guichenon's work) which records the death in "the year 99" of "Artaudus comes Lugdunensis et comes Forensis et dominus Bellijoci et Umfredus frater eius et mater eorum"[486].  Guichenon cites another version of the epitaph, from "une ancienne généalogie manuscrite" which he found in the archives of the "chapitre de Saint-Jean de Lyon"[487], which reads "Artaudus comes Lugdunensis ac Forensis, dominus Bellijoci, anno 999" and "Artaldus filius et mater eius".  The editor of the 1874 edition of Guichenon records yet another version, from "la chronique trouvée à Belleville" which reads "…Artaldus comes Lugd. et Forensis dns Stephanus comes frater eius et Amphredus Bellijoci dns et pater et frater eorum, obiit dictus Artaldus 993".  Guichenon's conclusion is that none of these versions is likely to be genuine, based on his supposition that pre-1000 epitaphs are infrequent and that the authentic ones which do survive record only names and titles not the territories ruled.  He adds that the chronology is such that, if the Beaujeu family did descend from the comtes de Lyon, "Berardus" cited below could have been the brother of Gerard Comte de Lyon, and son of Comte Artaud [I] who lived in 900[488].  Auguste Bernard states that the seigneurs de Beaujeu descended from "Bernard ou Béraud ou Gérard", who he says was the youngest of the three sons of Guillaume [I] Comte de Lyon to whom his father granted "la sirerie de Beaujolais", but he cites no primary source on which he bases his statement[489].  From an onomastic point of view, neither of the names typical of the family of the Comtes de Lyon (Artaud and Gérard) is found in the family of the Seigneurs de Beaujeu, although this is not of course conclusive proof that the relationship did not exist.

2.         [--- .  Assuming that "avunculus" is used in its strict sense in the 973/74 charter referred to above, this unidentified person was Guichard's sister.]  m ---.  Four children: 

a)         GUICHARD (-after Jan 976).  "Vuichardus et Berardus" donated property "ex rebus fratris nostri Bernardi…in pago Matisconensi in villa Tisiaco" to Cluny by charter dated Jan 976, subscribed by "Berardi, Vuicardi, Gotefredi, Adalberti"[491]

The exact relationship between the above family sub-group and Berard husband of Wandelmode is not known, but the common use of the names Guichard, Berard and Lambert suggests that the two families were closely related.  It is possible that they were related through Berard's mother. 

[Three] siblings: 

1.         BERARD [II] (-[9 Dec 961/966]).  "Berardus" donated property "in villa Morgono, comitato Matisconense" to Cluny dated Oct 957, consented to by "Arlulfo" who has not been identified[497].  The church of Pierre Aigue was founded on land "in pago L[ugdu]nensi" owned by "Berardum" by undated charter, dated to the 10th century, signed by "Berardi, Wandelmodis, Humberti…"[498].  [A charter dated 22 Aug, dated to [1060/1108], records donations in "pago Lugdunensi" to the church of Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by "predicti fundatores", including property "in villa Charenthahie" donated by "duo fratres…Berardus et Josmarus"[499].  It is not known whether this charter relates to Bérard [II] and his otherwise unrecorded brother.]  m WANDELMODE, daughter of --- (-after [987/96]).  "Vuandalmodis" is named as wife of Bérard in his donation to Cluny dated Oct 957[500].  Her origin is not known.  Chaume proposed that she was Wandelmode de Salins, daughter of Humbert de Salins & his wife Wandalmode ---, for onomastic reasons because of her own name as well as the names of her son Humbert and grandson Letaud[501].  The church of Pierre Aigue was founded on land "in pago L[ugdu]nensi" owned by "Berardum" by undated charter, dated to the 10th century, signed by "Berardi, Wandelmodis, Humberti…"[502].  "Vuandalmodis et filius meus Vuichardus" donated property "in pago Augustodunense…in villa Trescurtis…[et] in villa Vualiaco" to Cluny for the soul of "Letaudi filii mei" by charter dated to [987/96], subscribed by "Vuigonis, Lamberti, Girardi, Bernardi, Josberti, Aimini, Annoni, Humberti, Ermenardi, Roberti, Ermenrici"[503].  Bérard & his wife had [nine] children: 

a)         HUMBERT [I] (-before 1016).  The church of Pierre Aigue was founded on land "in pago L[ugdu]nensi" owned by "Berardum" by undated charter, dated to the 10th century, signed by "Berardi, Wandelmodis, Humberti…"[504]

-        see below

b)         GUICHARD [I] (-[987/96]).  "Vuichardus" donated property "in pago Lucdunense in villa Ronnenco ecclesiam…sancti Georgii" to Cluny by charter dated 978, signed by "Vuichardus et uxor eius Aialmodis, Milo, Stephanus, Vuigo, Umfredus, Agno, Rotlandus" witnessed by "Umbertus, Ameldus, Berardus, Vuichardus, Letaudus, Bermundus, Raimodis, Aldebaldus"[505].  Guichenon also refers to this charter, adding that the donation was for the souls of "Beraud son père…Vandalmode sa mère"[506], but this does not appear in the transcription in the Bruel compilation.  The charter may be the confirmation of an earlier donation of the church of St George, in the same town, by Guichard's brother Humbert, assuming that "sancti Germani" in the earlier charter was a transcription error for "sancti Georgii".  "Vuandalmodis et filius meus Vuichardus" donated property "in pago Augustodunense…in villa Trescurtis…[et] in villa Vualiaco" to Cluny for the soul of "Letaudi filii mei" by charter dated to [987/96][507], which indicates that Wandelmode was not deceased at the date of the 978 charter.  m (before [969/70]) as her second husband, ALMODIS, widow of HUGUES, daughter of ---.  Her first two marriages are indicated by the charter dated [11 Jul 969/10 Jul 970] under which "Ailmodis" donated property "in pago atque in comitatu Lugdunensi…ecclesiam…sancti Martini in villa…Oratorias [et] in villa Lazeniaco ecclesiam…sancti Johannis [et] in villa…Liergio ecclesiam…sancti Ferreoli" to Cluny for the souls of "Bermundi et Gislane et senioris mei Hugonis atque Vuichardi et fratris eius Stephani atque Bermundi", which names "senior meus Vuichardus" and is signed "Vuichardi atque Ailmodis"[508].  According to Guichenon, Almodis donated property "Casoja" to Cluny by charter dated 977 which names her daughter Viceline, Guichard her father, and Ansède subsequent husband of Ailmodis[509].  This charter has not been found in the Bruel compilation.  It must be incorrectly dated if the charter of "Vuandalmodis et filius meus Vuichardus" is correctly dated to [987/96][510].  Guichard [I] & his wife had one child: 

i)          WENCELINE (-977 or after).  According to Guichenon, Almodis donated property "Casoja" to Cluny by charter dated 977 which names her daughter Viceline, Guichard her father, and Ansède later husband of Ailmodis[511], but this charter has not been found in the Bruel compilation. 

c)         [MILO (-after 978).  "…Milo, Stephanus, Vuigo, Umfredus…" signed the charter dated 978 under which "Vuichardus" donated property to Cluny[512].  It is possible that these four witnesses were Guichard's brothers.] 

d)         ETIENNE (-[before 967]).  "Ailmodis" donated property to Cluny for the souls of "…Vuichardi et fratris eius Stephani atque Bermundi" by charter dated [11 Jul 969/10 Jul 970][513].  "…Milo, Stephanus, Vuigo, Umfredus…" signed the charter dated 978 under which "Vuichardus" donated property to Cluny[514].  It is possible that these four witnesses were Guichard's brothers which, if correct, would mean that Etienne was not deceased at the date of the earlier charter cited above. 

e)         HUGUES (-after Dec 994).  "Unbertus" donated property "in pago Lugdunensi in villa…Quinciaco" to Cluny by charter dated to [993/1048], subscribed by "Ugoni fratri eius"[515].  "Hugo" donated property "in pago Matiscensi in villa Lintiniaco in ago Bliacensi" to Cluny for by charter dated Dec 994, subscribed by "Humberti, Emeldis, Berardi, Vuichardi"[516], the subscribers presumably being Hugues oldest brother, his wife and two oldest sons. 

f)          LETAUD (-before [987/96]).  "Vuandalmodis et filius meus Vuichardus" donated property "in pago Augustodunense…in villa Trescurtis…[et] in villa Vualiaco" to Cluny for the soul of "Letaudi filii mei" by charter dated to [987/96][517]

g)         [GUY (-after [987/96]).  "Wigo" donated property "in pago Augustodunense…in villa Vissalar…[et] in villa Giblas" to Cluny, and refers to "ecclesiam de Attolas et in villa Matur mansum unum quem Wichardus dedit Sancto Petro", for the soul of "fratris Guichardi…et patris nostri Blisardi et matris nostre Blismodis" by charter dated to [987/96], which names "frater meus Lambertus" and is subscribed by "Lamberti, Umberti, Willelmi, Wigonis, Ugonis, Arberti, Bladini"[518].  The references to Guichard and Humbert in this document suggest a family connection with the family of the Seigneurs de Beaujeu.  It is possible that "Blisardi et…Blismodis" are copyist errors for "Berardi…Wandelmodis", in which case Guy and Lambert would have been two other sons of theirs.  This appears to be corroborated by the charter dated to [987/96] subscribed by "Vuigonis, Lamberti…Humberti…" under which "Vuandalmodis et filius meus Vuichardus" donated property to Cluny for the soul of "Letaudi filii mei"[519].  "…Milo, Stephanus, Vuigo, Umfredus…" signed the charter dated 978 under which "Vuichardus" donated property to Cluny[520].  It is possible that these four witnesses were Guichard's brothers.] 

h)         [ONFROI (-after 978).  "…Milo, Stephanus, Vuigo, Umfredus…" signed the charter dated 978 under which "Vuichardus" donated property to Cluny[521].  It is possible that these four witnesses were Guichard's brothers.  "Umfredus" donated property "in pago Lugdunense ecclesiam…sancti Aunemundi" to Cluny for the souls of "Vuichardi, Umberti, Vuigoni" (presumably the donor's brothers), by charter dated [11 Jul 976/10 Jul 977], subscribed by "Tedonis, Anscherici, Ugoni, Milonis archipresbiteri, Stephani, item Umfredi"[522].] 

i)          [LAMBERT (-after [987/96]).  "Wigo" donated property for the soul of "fratris Guichardi…et patris nostri Blisardi et matris nostre Blismodis" by charter dated to [987/96], which names "frater meus Lambertus" and is subscribed by "Lamberti, Umberti, Willelmi, Wigonis, Ugonis, Arberti, Bladini"[523].  "Vuigonis, Lamberti…Humberti…" subscribed the charter dated to [987/96] under which "Vuandalmodis et filius meus Vuichardus" donated property to Cluny for the soul of "Letaudi filii mei"[524].]  same person as…?  LAMBERT (-[993/1000]).  "Lantbertus miles…et uxor mea Ema et filii mei Wichardus et Gausfredus atque Berardus" donated property "in villa…Curtiacus" to Cluny by undated charter, dated to [993/1048], subscribed by "Walterii, Wigonis"[525].  There is no proof that this co-identity is correct.  However, the names of his sons Guichard and Berard suggest a connection with the family of the Seigneurs de Beaujeu.  m as her first husband, EMMA ---.  "Ema" donated property "in pago Matisconense in agro Ainniacensis ad Crevadicios" to Cluny with the consent of "filio meo Gauceranno" by undated charter, dated to [996/1031], which names "seniori meo Bernardo", subscribed by "Gauceranni filii eius, Emme filie eius, Vuichardi et uxoris eius, Hugonis, Vualterii"[526].  She married secondly (before 11 Nov 1003) Bernard, brother of Mayeul, ---.  "Emma et Maiolus clericus, frater senioris mei Bernardi" donated property "in comitatu Matisconensi in pagro Puziaco in villa Busserias" to Cluny for the soul of "senioris mei Bernardi" by charter dated 11 Nov 1003, subscribed by "Wichardi…"[527].  She maybe married thirdly Odilo ---.  "Emma uxor condam Odilonis" donated property "in pago Matisconense in villa Ammoniaco in agro Ainacensi" to Cluny by charter dated [24 Oct 1007/23 Oct 1008], subscribed by "Vuichardi…"[528].  Lambert & his wife had four children:

3.         [ETIENNE (-[after 1076]).  A charter dated 1076 recalls the foundation of Notre-Dame de Beaujeu and lists donations, including those of "Huguo et Guichardus et Stephanus cum filiis ac filiabus nostris de Bellojoco" confirming donations by "Berardus et Vuandalmodis atque Humbertus cum filiis ac filiabus eorum, parentibus nostris"[576].  Bouchard suggests that the three were Guichard [III] and his two brothers[577].  However, the fact that Guichard is named after his supposed brother Hugues suggests that this interpretation may not be correct.]  m ---.  The name of Etienne's wife is not known.  Etienne & his wife had [two] children:

a)         [ETIENNE (-after 1090).  Bouchard suggests that he and his brother were sons of the older Etienne[578].  However, no primary source in which he is named suggests that this may be correct, apart from their names.  "Stephanus [de Bellojoco]" donated property to Cluny with the consent of "Wigo filius Hugonis consobrinus eius, necnon etiam Humbertus, Wichardus atque Dalmatius filii Wichardi, consobrini ipsius similiter…atque Wichardi monachi consobrini ipsius Stephani" by charter dated [1070][579].  ["Dalmatius cognomento de Verneis" donated "in villa de Stopis in loco…Fontanellis…[et] in villa de Gercione" to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by charter dated 10 Nov 1090, signed by "Guigonis et Stephani nepotum meorum"[580].]  "Stephanus" donated land in "pago Lugdunensi in parroectia Draciaci in villa Bossedo" to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu, for the soul of "fratris sui Letaldi" after the latter was killed and the donor himself wounded, by charter dated 1090, signed by "Umberti, Auxilie uxoris sue…"[581].] 

b)         [LETAUD (-1090).  Bouchard suggests that he and his brother were sons of the older Etienne[582].  However, no primary source in which he is named suggests that this may be correct, apart from their names.  "Stephanus" donated land in "pago Lugdunensi in parroectia Draciaci in villa Bossedo" to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu, for the soul of "fratris sui Letaldi" after the latter was killed and the donor himself wounded, by charter dated 1090, signed by "Umberti, Auxilie uxoris sue…"[583].]

GUICHARD [III], son of GUICHARD [II] [Seigneur de Beaujeu] & his wife Adelaide --- (-after 31 Mar 1070)"Wichardus" donated property "in loco…Rocam in villa Quinciaco" to Cluny by charter dated 1020, subscribed by "Adeledis uxoris eius, Wichardi filii eius"[585]His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1031/60] under which "Wicardus veniens de Bellijoco" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon "recordans peccata…pater suus Wicardus", subscribed by "Ricoarie uxoris eius ac filii eorum Humberti, Hugonis avunculi eius"[586]

m RICHOARA [de Salornay, daughter of ROCLENUS & his wife Testa ---].  Guichenon names the wife of Guichard [III] as Richoara de Salornay, although the editor of the 1874 edition says that this is not certain in the absence of any document which proves her parentage[587].  "Wichardus miles de Bellojoco" donated property "in comitatu Matisconensi in villa Brurericus in agro Biliaco" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [1031/62] subscribed by "uxoris eius Ricoare et filiorum eius Humberti, Guichardi et Dalmacii"[588].  "Ricoarie uxoris eius ac filii eorum Humberti, Hugonis avunculi eius" subscribed the charter dated to [1031/60] under which "Wicardus veniens de Bellijoco" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon "recordans peccata…pater suus Wicardus"[589].  She is named with her husband and sons in charters dated to [1031/60].  Richoara donated the church of Vitry to Cluny for the souls of "patris mee Rocleni et matris mee Tedce et sponsi mei domni Wichardi" by charter dated [1055] subscribed by "Joceranni Rufi, Wichardi, Umberti, Wichardi, Dalmatii, Gaumarii, Petri"[590].  By a second charter dated [1055] "Richoara uxor Wichardi de Bellojoco" donated the church of Vitry with the consent of "viro meo Wichardo et filiis meis Humberto et Dalmatio et filiabus meis" to Cluny, which confirms that after the death of Richoara "Lebaldus de Igonia gener eius" was obliged to accept this donation to settle a dispute with the abbey[591]

Guichard [III] & his wife had seven children: 

1.         HUMBERT [II] (-[1102/03]).  "Wichardus miles de Bellojoco" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [1031/62] subscribed by "uxoris eius Ricoare et filiorum eius Humberti, Guichardi et Dalmacii"[592].  "Ricoarie uxoris eius ac filii eorum Humberti, Hugonis avunculi eius" subscribed the charter dated to [1031/60] under which "Wicardus veniens de Bellijoco" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon "recordans peccata…pater suus Wicardus"[593].  "Stephanus [de Bellojoco]" donated property to Cluny with the consent of "Wigo filius Hugonis consobrinus eius, necnon etiam Humbertus, Wichardus atque Dalmatius filii Wichardi, consobrini ipsius similiter…atque Wichardi monachi consobrini ipsius Stephani" by charter dated [1070][594].  ["Humbertus Beljocensis", who was married to "filiam Amedei comitis Savoiensis", donated property "Carruptum…[et] Capolerium" to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by undated charter, dated in the compilation to [1080/90][595].  As noted discussed more fully below under Humbert [II]’s second wife, it is possible that this charter relates to Humbert [III] Seigneur de Beaujeu, assuming that the speculative dating is incorrect.]  "Umberti, Auxilie uxoris sue" subscribed the charter dated 1090 which records the donation to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by "Stephanus"[596].  "Domnus Humbertus et uxor sua…Auxilia et infantes eorum Guicchardus et Humbertus et Guigo et Ugo" confirmed the donation to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by Herbert de Senecé by charter dated 1094[597]m firstly WANDELMODE de Thiern, daughter of GUILLAUME de Thiern & his wife Adelaide de Chalon.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  m secondly ([1080]) AUXILIA, daughter of --- (-[6 Sep] after 1094).  "Auxilia uxor domni Humberti" donated property to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by undated charter, dated in the compilation to [1090][598].  "Umberti, Auxilie uxoris sue" subscribed the charter dated 1090 which records the donation to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by "Stephanus"[599].  "Domnus Humbertus et uxor sua…Auxilia et infantes eorum Guicchardus et Humbertus et Guigo et Ugo" confirmed the donation to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by Herbert de Senecé by charter dated 1094[600].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[601], she was Auxilia de Savoie, daughter of Amédée II Comte de Savoie & his wife Jeanne [de Genève].  Presumably this supposition is based on the undated charter, dated in the compilation to [1080/90], under which "Humbertus Beljocensis", who was married to "filiam Amedei comitis Savoiensis", donated property "Carruptum…[et] Capolerium" to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu[602].  Guichenon suggests that there is confusion between Auxilia and Alix de Savoie, wife of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Beaujeu (see below)[603].  The basis for dating the charter in question to [1080/90] has not been ascertained and, assuming that this does not depend on dating the church dignitaries who are named in the document ("Petri, Guiscardi et Stephani supradictæ ecclesie"), this confusion appears possible.  The necrology of Notre-Dame de Beaujeu records "Humberti et Auxilie uxoris domini Bellijoci" on "VII Id Sep"[604], but it is not clear which death is commemorated.  Humbert [II] & his second wife had six children:

8.         HUMBERT [III] de Beaujeu ([1120]-[1192]).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.   Seigneur de Beaujeu.  He went on crusade in 1142, joining the Templars in Jerusalem but giving up the Order on his return.  "Humberto…de Bellojoco et filiis eiusdem Gui et Humberto…" witnessed the charter dated 16 Jul 1158 under which "Guigo comes Forensis" granted safe passage to the Knights Hospitallers[627].  "Humbertus de Bellojoco" confirmed that "Guigo comes Forensis nepos meus" relinquished claims over Savigny abbey, which arose after "vicecomitem de Poliniac et filium suum Heracium" were captured, by charter dated to [1170], witnessed by "Guido de Garlanda et Guido Pincerna et Guido de Capreosa consanguineus meus…"[628].  "Umbertum de Bello Joco patrem et Umbertum filium suum" made a peace agreement by charter dated 30 Mar 1184[629].  ["Humbertus Beljocensis", who was married to "filiam Amedei comitis Savoiensis", donated property "Carruptum…[et] Capolerium" to Notre-Dame de Beaujeu by undated charter, dated in the compilation to [1080/90][630].  As noted discussed more fully above under the second wife of Humbert [II] Seigneur de Beaujeu, it is possible that this charter relates to Humbert [III], assuming that the speculative dating is incorrect.]  m ALIX [Elise] de Savoie, daughter of AMEDEE III Comte de Savoie & his first wife Adelaide ---.  Her origin is alluded to in the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names "pater Wichardi [de Belloico] senior Humbertus" as "nepos ex sorore comitis Sabaudie", although she is not named in this source[631].  Her birth date range is estimated based on the birth of her second son in 1142, as shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[632]. Dame de Châteauneuf-en-Valromey, de Virieu-le-Grand, et de Cordon-en-Bugey[633]"Amedeus comes et marchio" confirmed donations to Saint-Sulpice en Bugey, for the soul of "filii mei Humberti", by charter dated to [1148], which also names "uxore mea Matildi", confirmed by "Aalasia comitissa de Bello Joco…cum filio meo Guichardo"[634].  Humbert [III] & his wife had [six] children: 

a)         HUGUES de Beaujeu (-[before 16 Jul 1158]).  A manuscript genealogy of the Cabinet de d'Hozier refers to "une charte de 1194" which names "Hug, Guichard, Humbert et Guy" as the children of "Humbert et Alexie sa femme"[635].  No other indication concerning this charter has yet been found, and it is presumed that it has not survived.  If the wording of the charter is correctly reported as above by d'Hozier, Hugues must have been his parents' oldest child.  If this is correct, he must have predeceased his brother Humbert [IV] and left no descendants, as they would otherwise have been the legitimate heirs to Beaujeu.  Published secondary sources, Europäische Stammtafelnń for example, show Hugues as third brother.  The basis for this has not yet been traced.  It is likely that it dates from Guichenon[636] who names "Hugues de Beaujeu" as father of Guicharde de Beaujeu, wife of Archambaud [VI] Vicomte de Comborn and named as "consanguinea nostra" in the first testament of Guichard [V] Seigneur de Beaujeu dated to [1195] (see below).  Guichenon cites no primary source on which his speculation is based, and it must be incorrect if the wording of the 1194 charter is correctly stated as above.  It is assumed that Hugues, if indeed he was his father’s oldest son, died before 16 Jul 1158 as he is not named with his father and two brothers "Humberto…de Bellojoco et filiis eiusdem Gui et Humberto…" who witnessed the charter of that date under which "Guigo comes Forensis" granted safe passage to the Knights Hospitallers[637]

b)         GUICHARD de Beaujeu (-19 Aug 1165).  A manuscript genealogy of the Cabinet de d'Hozier refers to "une charte de 1194" which names "Hug, Guichard, Humbert et Guy" as the children of "Humbert et Alexie sa femme"[638]"Amedeus comes et marchio" confirmed donations to Saint-Sulpice en Bugey, for the soul of "filii mei Humberti", by charter dated to [1148], which also names "uxore mea Matildi", confirmed by "Aalasia comitissa de Bello Joco…cum filio meo Guichardo"[639]"Humberto…de Bellojoco et filiis eiusdem Gui et Humberto…" witnessed the charter dated 16 Jul 1158 under which "Guigo comes Forensis" granted safe passage to the Knights Hospitallers[640].  As noted below, it is possible that "Gui" in this document was an error for "Guichard". 

c)         HUMBERT [IV] de Beaujeu (-[1189]).  A manuscript genealogy of the Cabinet de d'Hozier refers to "une charte de 1194" which names "Hug, Guichard, Humbert et Guy" as the children of "Humbert et Alexie sa femme"[641]

-        see below

d)         GUY de Beaujeu (-[16 Jul 1158/1195]).  A manuscript genealogy of the Cabinet de d'Hozier refers to "une charte de 1194" which names "Hug, Guichard, Humbert et Guy" as the children of "Humbert et Alexie sa femme"[642].  If this document is correctly reported as shown here, Guy must have been the fourth son.  However, "Humberto…de Bellojoco et filiis eiusdem Gui et Humberto…" witnessed the charter dated 16 Jul 1158 under which "Guigo comes Forensis" granted safe passage to the Knights Hospitallers[643], which suggests that Guy was one of his father’s older sons, unless "Gui" in this document is an error for "Guichard".  As he is not named as second heir to Guichard [V] Seigneur de Beaujeu in the latter's first testament (see below), he must have died before the date of this document.  It is possible that he was the father of "Guicharda consanguinea nostra", named as second heir of Guichard [V] in that testament.  However, no reference has been found to his marriage. 

e)         PONTIA de Beaujeu .  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  m as his first wife, GUILLAUME [IV] Comte de Mâcon, [titular] Comte de Vienne, son of GERAUD [I] Comte de Mâcon, [titular] Comte de Vienne [Bourgogne-Comté] & his wife Maurette de Salins (-1224, bur [church of Tournus, Galilee]). 

f)          [son/daughter].  The identity of Guicharde's parents is unknown.  The documents quoted below suggest that Guicharde was the second surviving heir of the Beaujeu family in [1195], after the sister of Guichard [V] Seigneur de Beaujeu.  It is assumed therefore that she was the daughter of one of the siblings of Humbert [IV].  Guichenon names "Hugues de Beaujeu" as her father[644], without citing any primary source on which this is based.  As explained above, Guichenon's hypothesis would be disproved by the report concerning the wording of the charter dated 1194 (referred to above), according to which Hugues was his parents' oldest child.  As noted above, no reference to any marriage of Guy, youngest surviving brother, has been identified.  It therefore appears more probable that Guicharde was the daughter of Pontia, who must have died before [1195] if this speculation is correct.  It is of course possible that all the siblings of Humbert [IV] died childless.  If this is correct, Guicharde would have been the senior descendant of the oldest surviving sister of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Beaujeu.  The only probable sister whose marriage is recorded was the wife of Guy [I] Comte de Lyon et de Forez.  This couple is recorded as leaving male descendants, who must have been alive at the date of Guichard [V]'s first testament.  It does not therefore appear possible that Guicharde was that couple's senior descendant.  In conclusion therefore, it appears the most likely case that Pontia de Beaujeu was Guicharde's mother.  It should be noted that none of the sources quoted below refer to Guicharde as "Guicharde de Beaujeu".  It would not therefore be inconsistent with these documents for her to have been "Guicharde de Mâcon".  m ---.  One child: 

i)          GUICHARDE .  The precise parentage of Guicharde is not known, but as explained above it is most likely that she was the daughter of one of the siblings of Humbert [IV] de Beaujeu, Pontia the first wife of Guillaume [IV] Comte de Vienne et de Mâcon being the most likely possibility.  "Domini Vicardi Bellijoci" drew up a first testament dated to [1195], when he was unmarried, leaving Beaujeu to his (unnamed) sister and Bugey ("terram de Beuzeis") to "Vicardo, filio domine Vicarde"[645].  "Guichardus Belli Joci dominus" names "Guicharda consanguinea nostra" in his second testament dated 18 Sep 1216, when recording his agreement with her that Bugey should be left to the testator's third son instead of to Guicharde (hinting at the earlier testament dated to [1195] under which the testator left the territory to Guicharde's son)[646]"Archambaldus vicecomes de Comborn" recorded the burial "apud Obazinam" of "dominam Guischardam uxorem nostram" by charter dated May 1221[647]A charter dated Oct 1246 records an agreement between "Bernardus de Comborn" and Humbert [V] Seigneur de Beaujeu, relating to Bernard's rights "in terra et baronia Bellijoci ex parte dominæ Guichardæ quondam matris nostræ" granted to "Archambaldo…vicecomiti de Comborn patri nostro" by "dominus Guichardus de Bellojoco quondam pater ipsius Humberti"[648]Her marriage is dated from her absence from the original text of the Chronique de Geoffroy de Vigeois, which is dated to [1184][649]m ARCHAMBAUD [VI] Vicomte de Comborn, son of ARCHAMBAUD [V] Vicomte de Comborn & his wife Jordana de Périgord.  1229. 

 

 

HUMBERT [IV] de Beaujeu, son of HUMBERT [III] Seigneur de Beaujeu & his wife Alix [Elise] de Savoie (-[1189]).  A manuscript genealogy of the Cabinet de d'Hozier refers to "une charte de 1194" which names "Hug, Guichard, Humbert et Guy" as the children of "Humbert et Alexie sa femme"[650].  "Humberto…de Bellojoco et filiis eiusdem Gui et Humberto…" witnessed the charter dated 16 Jul 1158 under which "Guigo comes Forensis" granted safe passage to the Knights Hospitallers[651].  "Umbertum de Bello Joco patrem et Umbertum filium suum" made a peace agreement by charter dated 30 Mar 1184[652].  He died on the Third Crusade. 

m ([1160]) as her second husband, AGNES de Thiern Dame de Montpensier-en-Auvergne, widow of RAYMOND de Bourgogne Comte de Grignon [Capet], daughter of GUY de Thiern Seigneur de Montpensier & his wife ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  Her two marriages are deduced from the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names "Agnes de Montepancerii in Alvernia" as the mother of "domni de Belloioco Wichardi" (her son by her second marriage) and specifies that she was also mother of "Mathilde comitisse Nivernensis"[653]Agnes comitissa de Monte Pancero et de Grinnumniaco” donated annual revenue to Cîteaux, for the souls of “domni mei Raimundi filiique nostri Hugonis”, by charter dated 1156 after Jun[654]
