The county of Autun evolved in the pagus Augustodunensis, centred on the town of Autun, in the southern part of the medieval duchy of Burgundy, in the north-western part of the present-day French département of Saône-et-Loire near the border with the département Côte-d’Or.  Autun was one of the first Burgundian counties mentioned in primary sources.  The first recorded Comte d'Autun was Theoderic [I], whose definite origins are not known but who was probably related to the Carolingian family of Childebrand/Nibelung (see the document CAROLINGIAN NOBILITY).  His descendants continued to hold the county until Bernard Marquis of Septimania lost it in 830.  No record has been found of the rulers of the county from that date until 864, when it was awarded to Bernard "Plantevelue" son of the previous Comte Bernard.  Possession of the county was disputed by Boson, later King [of Provence], in the late 870s.  He installed his brother Richard, later duke of Burgundy, as Comte d'Autun.  After his death in 921, the county was absorbed into the duchy of Burgundy. 

 

 

 

Chapter 1.    COMTES d'AUTUN

 

 

1.         THEODERIC [I], son of --- (-[791/15 Dec 804]).  The origin of Comte Theoderic is not known.  An interesting speculation is a relationship with the early Saxon leader Widukind, as explained further in the document CAROLINGIAN NOBILITY.  Comte d'Autun.  Einhard indicates that Theoderic was related to Charles I King of the Franks when he records that in 782 the king sent his three missi "Adalgiso camerario et Geilone comite stabuli et Worado comite palati" to meet "in…Saxonis…Theodericus comes, propinquus regis"[1], the relationship probably being through the wife of Theoderic [I].  "Carolus…rex Francorum et Langobardorum" gave a judgment by charter dated to [Dec 775] which names "fidelibus…Widrigo, Odrigo, Theodrico, Bernehardo, Albuino, Aginhardo, Berngario comitibus et Anshelmo comite palacii nostri"[2].  Einhard records that Charles I King of the Franks sent "Theodorico comite et Meginfredo camerario suo" to "aquilonalem Danubii ripam" in 791[3]"Willelmus…comes" names "genitore meo Theuderico et genitrice mea Aldana" in his charter dated 14 Dec 804 (version two: dated 15 Dec 804) for the foundation of the monastery of Gellone[4]

a)         TEUDOIN (-826 or after)"Willelmus…comes" names "fratribus meis Theudoino et Adalelmo" (version two: "fratre meo Teodoino et Teoderico et Adalelmo") in his charter dated 14 Dec 804 (version two: dated 15 Dec 804) for the foundation of the monastery of Gellone.  Comte d'Autun 804/26. 

b)         GUILLAUME ([750/55]-Gellone [28 May [812/13]/21 May 815]).  Comte de Toulouse, Marquis de Septimanie. 

i)          BERNARD ([795]-executed Toulouse Saint-Sernin 844)"Willelmus…comes" names "filiabus meis et filiis Barnardo, Witchario, Gotcelmo, Helimbruch" (version two: "filios meos et filias Witcario, Hildehelmo et Helinbruch") in his charter dated 14 Dec 804 (version two: dated 15 Dec 804) for the foundation of the monastery of Gellone, Bernard being named in only one of the versions[5].  Flodoard refers to "Bernardo comiti Tolosano, propinquo suo [Teodulfo comite]"[6].  Thegan's Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "quondam duce Bernhardo, qui erat de stirpe regali" was accused of violating "Iudith reginam" but comments that this was all lies[7]Comte d'Autun until 830.  Marquis de Septimanie until 831.  He was installed as Count of Barcelona in 827 or before.  Einhard's Annales name "Bernhardus…Barcinonæ comes" in 827[8]The Annales Fuldenses record that "Barnhardus comes Barcinonensis" was made camerarius in the palace in 829[9]Emperor Louis I appointed "Bernard Duke of Septimania" as his chamberlain and entrusted his son Charles to him, but he "recklessly abused the imperial power…and undermined it entirely".  He was banished to Septimania in [Apr 830] by the emperor's sons who rebelled against their father[10]The Annales Bertiniani record that "præfatus Bernardus" fled to Barcelona in 830[11].  The Vita Hludowici Imperatoris records that "Bernhardus" fled into exile in Spain and was deprived of his honours [in 831][12].  The same source records that "Werinus et Bernhardus comites" gathered a force in Burgundy and reached "Matronam fluvium" [in 834][13].  The Annales Bertiniani record that "Bernardus comes marcæ Hispanicæ" was sentenced to death in 844[14]The Annales Xantenses record that "Bernhardus comes" was killed "a Karolo" in 844, after which "filio Bernhardi" and "Pippinus rex Aquitainiæ, filius Pippini" defeated the king's army[15]The Annales Fuldenses record that "Karolus" killed "Bernhardum Barcenonensium ducem" in 844 "incautem et nihil ab eo suspicantem"[16].

(a)       BERNARD "Plantevelue" (Uzès 22 Mar 841-[20 Jun 885/16 Aug 886], maybe 6 Jan 886).  The Manual of Dhuoda records the birth "XI Kal Apr", in the year following the death of Emperor Louis, at "Uzecia urbes" of the second child [Bernard] of Doda and her husband Bernard[17]The Annales Bertiniani name "rex markiones Bernardum scilicet Tolosæ et iterum Bernardum Gothiæ, itemque Bernardum alium" in 868[18]Lay Abbot of Brioude 857/68.  Comte d'Autun 864/69, deposed.  Comte de Rodez 864/74.  Comte d'Auvergne after 872.  The Annales Bertiniani name "Bernardum Arvenicum comitem" in 877[19]He obtained the county of Mâcon during the wars between the Carolingians and the Bosonids[20].  The 13th century obituary of the Eglise primatiale de Lyon records the death "VIII Id Jan" of "Bernardus comes"[21]

ii)         THEODERIC [IV] (-soon after 826).  The Manual of Dhuoda names (in order) "Willelmus, Chungundis, Gariberga, Vuithbergis, Teddericus, Gothzelmus, Guarnarius, Rothlindis" as relatives of Bernard, husband of Doda[22], which suggests that the last four named were the children of Guillaume by his second wife "Vuithbergis", assuming that all four were his children.  Comte d'Autun"Theodericus comes in Augustiduno civitate" issued a charter dated Dec 815 subscribed by "Dotinus, Ado, Bligario vicecomite, Girbaudus vicarius"[23].  "Fredelus advocatus Hildebrandi comitis" is named in a judgment of "Theodericus comes" in a charter dated Mar 818[24].  The judgment of "Theoderico comite" ordered the restitution of property at Baugy claimed by "Fulchardus advocatus…Nivelongo comiti" in a charter dated Apr 818[25]

 

 

Two brothers:

1.         EKKEHARD [Ecchard], son of CHILDEBRAND [III] & his wife Dunna --- ([810/15]-8 Apr [876/77], bur monastère de Fleury-sur-Loire, Nièvre).  "Hludovvicus…imperator augustus" granted land at Perrecy in Autun to "fideli nostro Ecchardo" by charter dated 29 Dec 839[26].  The Annales Bertiniani record that "filii Etkardi comitis duo, item Eokardus, Guntardus et Richuinus comites" were captured at the siege of Toulouse in 844[27], Settipani suggesting that "item Eokardus" refers to Ekkehard son of Childebrand [III] and his wife Dunna[28]Ekkehard was one of the rebels against King Charles "le Chauve" in 858.  According to Gingins-la-Sarra, Ekkehard was invested as Comte de Chalon [in 863], Comte d'Autun et de Mâcon [in 873][29]Philipon says that Gingins-la-Sarra “se trompe évidemment” in making these statements[30]A charter dated to [866/75] relates to a dispute between "Vulfaldum episcopum et Heccardum comitem" concerning land at Perrecy, heard before "Leudo episcopus et Adelardus comes missi dominici in comitatu Augustidunense", refers to a charter "de temporibus domni Pipini regis sive de nomen Nivelongi"[31]

2.         BERNARD "le Veau" (-murdered 872).  Settipani quotes a list from Faremoutiers which names "Hiltibrandus mo[nachos]…Theoterichus com[es], Hæckardus, Bernardus…", suggesting that the last three were brothers, sons of the first named[32].  He was invested as Comte d'Autun by King Louis "le Bègue" in 868.  Bernard was murdered by Bernard "Plantevelue" Comte d'Auvergne [Aquitaine], who had been dispossessed as Comte d'Autun in favour of Comte Bernard.  "Heccardus comes" names "germani mei Bernardi" in his testamentary disposition dated to [Jan 876][33]

 

 

1.         BERNARD, son of BERNARD Comte en Poitou & his wife Bilichildis du Maine (-after 879)The Annales Bertiniani name "rex markiones Bernardum scilicet Tolosæ et iterum Bernardum Gothiæ, itemque Bernardum alium" in 868[34]He was installed as Marquis of Septimania, and Comte d'Autun in 876.  He was deprived of his territories in 877 by Hugues "l'Abbé" who installed Rainulf II Comte de Poitou in his place.  The Annales Bertiniani name "Bernardum Gothiæ markionem" in 877[35]Pope John VIII excommunicated "Bernardum filium Bernardi et Belihildis" in 879[36]He rebelled against Bernard "Plantevelue" in 879 but was defeated.  The Annales Bertiniani record the rebellion of "Bernardi markionis" in 878[37].  The Gesta regum Francorum records in 880 the submission of "Bernhardum" to "filiis Hludowici" during their fight against "Buosenem in Gallia"[38], although it is not certain that this refers to the same person. 

 

 

It is likely that Theoderic [VI] was related to the families of Ekkehard and Theoderic [I], set out above, but the precise relationship has not been identified. 

1.         THEODERIC [VI] "le Trésorier", son of --- (-882 or 883).  A document issued by Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks dated Nov 853 names "Pardulus episcopus, Altmarus, Theodacrus" as missi in "Lauduniso, Portiano, Suessonico, Urciso et Vadiro"[39]He was invested as Comte d'Autun in 878 by King Louis II "le Bègue".  The Annales Bertiniani record his resignation of Autun in 879 after Boso disputed his possession of it[40].  He took the villa of Perrecy on the death of his brother. 

 

 

1.         RICHARD, son of comte BUVINUS [Bouvin] & his wife --- d'Arles (-[31 Aug or 1 or 29 Sep] 921, bur Abbaye de Sainte-Colombe de Sens, Yonne)The Annales Bertiniani name "Richardus frater Bosonis" when recording that, after the capture of Vienne by the forces of King Carloman, he took “uxorem Bosonis et filiam eius” back to “comitatum suum Augustudensem” in 882[41].  Comte in 876, subsequently assuming the role of his brother Boson as missus in Italy in early 877, when the latter was recalled by Emperor Charles II.  Comte d'AutunCarlomannus…Rex” restored property “villam Taniacum” to the church of Autun, at the request of “Richardi Comiti Augustodensis”, by charter dated 1 Dec 880, the text ending with “Theodoricus Comes ambasciavit[42]He established himself in the future duchy of Burgundy, north of his brother's realm, with his capital at Autun.  He was invested as lay abbot of Saint-Symphorien by Carloman King of the East Franks in 880.  He succeeded his wife's uncle Hugues l'Abbé as Comte d'Auxerre in 886.  He led the Carolingian army which besieged his brother King Boso at Vienne in 882.  The counties in Burgundy, except Mâcon, submitted to him.  In 890 he was referred to as dux, marchio in 900, and dux Burgundionem in 918/921, later known as RICHARD "le Justicier" Duke of Burgundy

D.      SEIGNEURS de SEMUR

 

 

The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur [en-Brionnais] is recorded in a mid-12th century genealogy preserved in the cartulary of Marcigny convent, although this only exists now in an 18th century French translation[122]

 

 

FREELAN de Chamelet, son of ---.  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Freelan de Chameliac de Chasteau Signon" as father of "Artauld, Joceran comte de Semur, Freelan abbé et Dalmace"[123]

m ---.  The name of Freelan's wife is not known.

GEOFFROY [II] de Semur, son of DALMAS [I] Seigneur de Semur & his wife Aremburge --- (-[1070/80], bur Marcigny).  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "le prince Jaufrois et Hugues abbé de Cluny et plusieurs autres" as children of "Dalmace et Aremburge…"[214].  "Gausfredus" names "Dalmacio fratre meo" and "Dalmacii patris mei" in a charter dated 1040[215].  He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Semur.  "Gaufredus" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire for souls of "genitoris mei Dalmatii et genitricis meæ Aremburgis" by charter dated to [1055/80] which refers to "Cluniacensis monasterii ubi domnus Hugo frater meus præest"[216].  "Jaufrois et mes fils Jaufrois et Hugues Dalmace" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire for the souls of "mon père Dalmace, de ma mere Aremburge et de la mère de mes fils Jaufrois et Hugues nommée Adaleide et de mes frères André et Dalmace et de notre ayeule Richoare" by charter dated to [1070][217].  "Gauffredus" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire when he was about to become a monk with the consent of "filiorum eorum Gaufredi, Hugonis et Dalmacii" by charter dated to [after 1070][218].  His retirement to Cluny is shown by the charter dated 1102 of "frater Hugo…Cluniacensis abbas" who donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire "consiliante atque juvante germano nostro domno Gaufredo Sinemurensis postea vero monacho Cluniacensis"[219]

m ([1045/50]) ADELAIDE, daughter of Comte RENAUD & his wife --- (-before [1070], bur Marcigny).   The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Adeleide qui fut fille du comte Rainauld" as wife of "Jaufrois"[220].  If this is correct, she may have been Adelaide de Nevers, daughter of Renaud [I] Comte de Nevers & his wife Hedwige de France [Capet].  However, the Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names "Adelidem quoque Samurensem" as one of the children of "Balduinus [comes Ghisnensi]" & his wife, specifying that her marriage with "Samurensi domino Galfrido" was arranged by "Parisiensis episcopi Guiffredi, Boloniensis comitis Eustacii fratris" to whom she was "cognata et consanguinea"[221].  This would mean that she was Adelaide de Guines, daughter of Baudouin [I] Comte de Guines & his wife Adela [Christina] [of Holland].  Although the Historia contains many inaccuracies in its narrative of the earlier generations of the family of the Comtes de Guines, the precision of the text in relation to Adelaide does suggest some reliability.  On the other hand, the reference to Geoffroy de Boulogne (appointed Bishop of Paris in 1061) does not provide a perfect chronological match.  As seen below, the retirement of her son Geoffroy [III] to Marcigny with his wife and younger son is dated to 1088.  This would suggest that Geoffroy [IV], older son of Geoffroy [III], was old enough to assume the lordship at the time, indicating that he must have been born not later than [1070] at the latest.  His paternal grandparents are therefore unlikely to have married later than [1045/50].  In addition, the name Baudouin is not found among this couple's descendants, which would be expected if Adelaide had been the daughter of Baudouin Comte de Guines.  "Gaufredus" confirmed the donations of property, including "Brolium quod est in Lavaletta…dedit domina Adeleida pro spetura sua" with the support of "domino Gaufredo et filiis Gaufredi et Hugoni", to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire by charter dated to [1055/80][222].  "Jaufrois et mes fils Jaufrois et Hugues Dalmace" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire for the souls of "…la mère de mes fils Jaufrois et Hugues nommée Adaleide…" by charter dated to [1070][223].  Her place of burial is proved by the charter dated to [1070/80] of "Jauffrois fils de Jauffroi cy-devant seigneur de Semur" under which he donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire for the soul of "ma mère qui a été enterrée en ce monastère…"[224]

Geoffroy [II] & his wife had three children: 

1.         GEOFFROY [III] de Semur ([1045/50]-Marcigny 24 May 1123).  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Jaufrois et Hugues-Dalmace" as children of "Jaufrois et Adeleide…"[225].  He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Semur

2.         HUGUES-DALMAS de Semur (-after 1118).  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Jaufrois et Hugues-Dalmace" as children of "Jaufrois et Adeleide…"[226].  Although the charter dated to [after 1070] under which "Gauffredus" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire names "filiorum eorum Gaufredi, Hugonis et Dalmacii"[227], other documents indicate that "Hugonis et Dalmacii" refers to a single person.  "Jauffrois fils de Jauffroi cy-devant seigneur de Semur" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire for the soul of "ma mère qui a été enterrée en ce monastère…" by charter dated to [1070/80] subscribed by "Hugues son frère"[228].  "Gaufredus de Sinemuro" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire when becoming a monk with the support of "fratre meo Hugone Dalmacii" by charter dated 1088 before 29 Aug[229].  He went to Jerusalem in 1118 and seems to have died on the journey[230]m ---.  The name of Hugues-Dalmas's wife is not known.  Hugues-Dalmas & his wife had one child: 

a)         HUGUES-DALMAS de Semur .  1113/1150.  "Hugo Dalmacius iunioris" renounced rights relating to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire by charter dated to the 1130s[231].  Seigneur de Marcilly-lès-Buxy.  m (1113) AUSSILIANT de Maymont Dame de'Oliergues-en-Auvergne, daughter of AYMON [I] Seigneur de Maymont & his wife Petronille ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified. 

-        FAMILY of DAMAS-en-FOREZ[232]

3.         LUCIE de Semur .  "Jaufrois…" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire for "ma fille nommée Lucie" when she entered the monastery by charter dated to [1070][233]

 

 

GEOFFROY [III] de Semur, son of GEOFFROY [II] Seigneur de Semur & his wife Adelaide [de Guines] ([1045/50]-Marcigny 24 May 1123).  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Jaufrois et Hugues-Dalmace" as children of "Jaufrois et Adeleide…"[234].  The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names "Galfridum" as son of "Samurensi domino Galfrido" and his wife[235].  His birth date range is estimated based on his son's estimated birth date.  He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Semur.  "Jauffrois fils de Jauffroi cy-devant seigneur de Semur" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire for the soul of "ma mère qui a été enterrée en ce monastère…" by charter dated to [1070/80][236].  "Gaufredus de Sinemuro" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire when becoming a monk "cum uxore mea…Ermengarde et uno filio ac duabus filiabus" by charter dated 1088 before 29 Aug[237].  He retired to Marcigny in 1088, with his wife and son Renaud and became prior. 

m ([1072]) his first cousin, ERMENGARDE de Semur, daughter of DALMAS de Semur Seigneur de Montagu & his wife ---.  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Ermengarde" as wife of "Gaufrois"[238].  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified, although it is indicated by the charter dated 1102 in which [her paternal uncle] "frater Hugo…Cluniacensis abbas" noted the dispute between the abbey of Cluny and "cuiusdam iuvenis pronepotis nostri Gaufredi videlicet tercii…filius alterius Gaufredi nepotis nostri"[239].  "Gaufredus de Sinemuro" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire when becoming a monk "cum uxore mea…Ermengarde et uno filio ac duabus filiabus" by charter dated 1088 before 29 Aug[240].  She retired to Marcigny in 1088 with her husband. 

Geoffroy [III] & his wife had five children: 

1.         GEOFFROY [IV] de Semur ([1070] or before-before 1128).  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "Jaufrois et Rainauld…" as children of "Gaufrois et…Ermengarde"[241].  His birth date is estimated on the assumption that he was old enough to assume the lordship on the retirement of his father in 1088, assuming that the latter date is accurate.  He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Semur.  A dispute between the abbey of Cluny and "cuiusdam iuvenis pronepotis nostri Gaufredi videlicet tercii…filius alterius Gaufredi nepotis nostri" is recorded in the charter dated 1102 by "frater Hugo…Cluniacensis abbas"[242].  "Gaufredus de Sinemuro germanus domni Raynaldi Vizeliacensis abbatis" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire by charter dated to [1106/08][243]m MATHILDE, daughter of ---.  The genealogy of the Seigneurs de Semur, included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire and dated to [1144], names "la comtesse Matilde" as wife of "Jaufrois"[244].  Another possibility is that the wife of Geoffroy [IV] may have been Adelaide de Guines, daughter of Baudouin [I] Comte de Guines & his wife Adela [Christina] [of Holland].  The Historia Comitum Ghisnensium names "Adelidem quoque Samurensem" as one of the children of "Balduinus [comes Ghisnensi]" & his wife, specifying that her marriage with "Samurensi domino Galfrido" was arranged by "Parisiensis episcopi Guiffredi, Boloniensis comitis Eustacii fratris" to whom she was "cognata et consanguinea"[245].  As mentioned above, the reference to Geoffroy de Boulogne (appointed Bishop of Paris in 1061, died 1095) is difficult to link chronologically with Geoffroy [II] Seigneur de Semur, whose wife's name is attested in other sources as Adelaide.  However, assuming that the marriage in question took place towards the end of the bishop's life, the chronology would fit with Seigneur Geoffroy [IV] being her husband.  Nevertheless, the absence of the name Baudouin among the couple's descendants points to this theory being incorrect.  Geoffroy [IV] & his wife had one child: 

a)         GEOFFROY [V] de Semur (-after 1150).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  He succeeded his father as Seigneur de Semurm (before 1128) EMMA, daughter of ---.  "Emma uxor Gaufredi nepotis mei" witnessed a charter at Marcigny-sur-Loire under which "Raynaldus Vizeliacensis abbas" noted various donations[246]

3.         AELIS (-after 1088).  "Gaufredus de Sinemuro" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire when becoming a monk "cum uxore mea…Ermengarde et uno filio ac duabus filiabus" by charter dated 1088 before 29 Aug[252].  Nun 1088. 

4.         AGNES (-after 1088).  "Gaufredus de Sinemuro" donated property to the abbey of Marcigny-sur-Loire when becoming a monk "cum uxore mea…Ermengarde et uno filio ac duabus filiabus" by charter dated 1088 before 29 Aug[253].  Nun 1088.
