Chapter 1.    BEAUNE

 

 

The town of Beaune is in the present-day French département of Côte-d’Or, in the arrondissement which bears its name, about 20 kilometres due north of Chalon-sur-Saône.  The pagus Belnensis (Beaunois), centred on Beaune, was situated north-east of Autunois and north of Chalon.  No record has been found of Beaune having developed into a county ruled by its own counts, which suggests that the town and surrounding districts formed part of the territory ruled directly by the dukes of Burgundy.  Vicomtes de Beaune are recorded in primary sources from the early 11th to the early 12th centuries

 

 

 

A.      VICOMTES de BEAUNE

 

 

EUDES, illegitimate son of HENRI [Eudes] Duke of Burgundy & his mistress --- (-27 May, 1006 or after)Vicomte de Beaune.  "Oddo vicecomes filius Heinrici ducis…et eius uxor Hingala" donated property “in comitatu Dusmensi villam, Empilliacus Siccus vocatam...” to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated to [1003][1].  The Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne, interpolated into the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, names "Odo vicecomes Belnensis" as son of "Henrici ducis Burgundie, frater ex matre Guillelmi Ottonis"[2].  The absence of any reference to his claiming the succession to his father as duke of Burgundy indicates that he was illegitimate.  Gauthier Bishop of Autun approved the reconstruction of Saint-Etienne de Beaune by "Oddonis atque uxoris eius...Hingole" by charter dated 1004[3].  A charter dated 25 Aug 1005 records that "Oddo vicecomes Belnocastri" donated "villam Empillies sitam infra comitatum…Dumensis…[et] in Milleponto villa…in comitatu Belnense…res uxor eius" to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon, confirmed by Robert II King of France at the request of "Ottonis comitis" and Gauthier Bishop of Autun[4].  The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés records the death "VI Kal Jun" of "Oddo vicecomes Belnensis"[5]

m INGOLA, daughter of [AGANON & his wife Ingola ---].  "Oddo vicecomes filius Heinrici ducis…et eius uxor Hingala" donated property “in comitatu Dusmensi villam, Empilliacus Siccus vocatam...” to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated to [1003][6].  The origin of Ingola is unknown.  Settipani indicates that she may have been from the family of the Comtes de Duesme but does not explain the basis for this suggestion[7].  Another possibility is that she was the daughter of Aganon, named after her mother: "Rodulfus sancti Symphoriani abbas" granted "terra in comitatu Altissiodorensi in uilla...Mons Corbonus et capella...in Coruello" to “uir nobilis...Agano cum uxore sua...Ingela...filio eius clerico...Aganone”, at the request of “dominæ Garsindis comitissæ”, by charter dated Jun [991/92][8].  This would also explain the introduction of the name Aganon into the family of Eudes Vicomte de Beaune (the name of his second son, see below).  Another possible interpretation of this document is that Aganon was the first husband of Ingola who married Vicomte Eudes as her second husband.  The difficulty with that second hypothesis is that Aganon, son of Vicomte Eudes, is described as one of “filiorum eius” [presumably referring to Eudes himself] in the charter dated 1012 which is quoted below, in which case it is unlikely that he was the same person as Aganon, son of Aganon, who is named in the charter dated Jun [991/92].  Gauthier Bishop of Autun approved the reconstruction of Saint-Etienne de Beaune by "Oddonis atque uxoris eius...Hingole" by charter dated 1004[9].  The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records a donation by "Oddo Vicecomes, filius Hinrici Ducis" which names "uxor eius Hingala" dated 1005[10].  "Odo Belnensis vicecomes" with the consent of "uxoris suæ nomine Inge et filiorum eius Aquionis abbatis et Joannis" are named in a charter dated 1012 as donors of part of the property exchanged between "Willelmus abbas Divionensis et Amadeus Flaviniacensis abbas"[11].  Vicomte Eudes & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         JEAN (-after 1053).  "Odo Belnensis vicecomes" with the consent of "uxoris suæ nomine Inge et filiorum eius Aquionis abbatis et Joannis" are named in a charter dated 1012 as donors of part of the property exchanged between "Willelmus abbas Divionensis et Amadeus Flaviniacensis abbas"[12]Seigneur de Vergy before 1053.

2.         AGANON (-after 1030).  "Odo Belnensis vicecomes" with the consent of "uxoris suæ nomine Inge et filiorum eius Aquionis abbatis et Joannis" are named in a charter dated 1012 as donors of part of the property exchanged between "Willelmus abbas Divionensis et Amadeus Flaviniacensis abbas"[13].  Abbot of Moustier-Saint-Jean 1019.  A charter dated to 1030 or after records a dispute between "canonici Sancti Mauricii Agaunensis ecclesie" and "Girardo Arlebaldo" who expelled the monks but later agreed a settlement "coram Rainaldo de Glana et Humberto episcopo Parisiensi et Quignaco de Verziaco et Agano abbate de monasterio Sancti Johannis et Catulo de Simbernone"[14].  ["Hugonis abbatis, Aganonis abbatis..." subscribed the charter dated 1 Aug 1060 under which "canonici sancti Petri et sancti Syphoriani" granted property “in pago Augustidunensi in loco...Curtis Marculfi” to “milite...Hugone[15].  It is not known whether “Aganonis abbatis” may have been Aganon abbot of Moustier-Saint-Jean.] 

3.         [daughter.  Settipani records a suggestion by Chaume that a daughter of Eudes Vicomte de Beaune married "--- de Couches"[16].  However, this appears to represent a confusion with with Gaudry de Couches, possible brother of Rainard de Mont-Saint-Jean and Aganon Bishop of Autun (see SEIGNEURS de MONT-SAINT-JEAN in the present document).] 

 

 

The parentage of Rainard Vicomte de Beaune is not known.  His succession to the vicomté suggests a relationship with the preceding family, maybe through the female line as a direct male descent would probably have been recorded in the sources.  A connection also seems likely with the family of the seigneurs de Mont-Saint-Jean, in which the names Rainard, Aganon (see above) and Hugues all appear, as well as a link with the Couches family.  Hugues de Mont-Saint-Jean was the first lay witness in the undated notice concerning the foundation of Cîteaux which is quoted below. 

 

1.         RAINARD (-after [1100/10]).  Vicomte de Beaune.  A notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis" witnessed by “Hugo de Monte sancti Johannis, Gualo de Saliva, Segwinus de Belna et filius eius Hugo, Hugo de Granceio, Milo de Frolleis, Robertus prepositus Argilliensis, Johannes de Pulmarto et Landricus filius eius, Hugo venator.  Petrus filius Tetberti et concessit et testis est, Hugo de Monesteith[17].  Chaume discussed the foundation of Cîteaux and the involvement of the vicomtes de Beaune[18]m HODIERNA, daughter of ---.  A notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis"[19].  Vicomte Rainard & his wife had seven children: 

a)         HUGUES .  A notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis"[20].  An earlier donation by their father to the abbey of Cîteaux is confirmed and completed by "filii Rainaldis vicecomitis de Belna, Hugo, Rainaldus, Petrus, Tiebertus sed et Humbertus frater eorumdem archidiaconus" by charter dated [1134/43][21]

b)         HUMBERT .  A notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis"[22].  Archdeacon.  An earlier donation by their father to the abbey of Cîteaux is confirmed and completed by "filii Rainaldis vicecomitis de Belna, Hugo, Rainaldus, Petrus, Tiebertus sed et Humbertus frater eorumdem archidiaconus" by charter dated [1134/43][23]

c)         RAINARD .  A notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis"[24].  An earlier donation by their father to the abbey of Cîteaux is confirmed and completed by "filii Rainaldis vicecomitis de Belna, Hugo, Rainaldus, Petrus, Tiebertus sed et Humbertus frater eorumdem archidiaconus" by charter dated [1134/43][25]

d)         HAGANO (-before [1134/43]).  A notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis"[26]

e)         RAIMULDIS .  A notice concerning the foundation of the abbey of Cîteaux, undated but dated to the early 12th century, records an earlier donation by "Rainardus belnensis vicecomes et uxor eius Hodierna…et eorum filii Hugo, Hunbertus, Rainardus, Hagano eorumque soror Raimuldis"[27].  An earlier donation by their father to the abbey of Cîteaux is confirmed and completed by "filii Rainaldis vicecomitis de Belna, Hugo, Rainaldus, Petrus, Tiebertus sed et Humbertus frater eorumdem archidiaconus" by charter dated [1134/43][28]

f)          PIERRE .  An earlier donation by their father to the abbey of Cîteaux is confirmed and completed by "filii Rainaldis vicecomitis de Belna, Hugo, Rainaldus, Petrus, Tiebertus sed et Humbertus frater eorumdem archidiaconus" by charter dated [1134/43][29]

g)         THIBERT .  An earlier donation by their father to the abbey of Cîteaux is confirmed and completed by "filii Rainaldis vicecomitis de Belna, Hugo, Rainaldus, Petrus, Tiebertus sed et Humbertus frater eorumdem archidiaconus" by charter dated [1134/43][30]

 

 

Any relationship between the following person and the main family of the vicomtes de Beaune has not been ascertained.  Thibaut must have had some local status to have married the daughter of the vicomte de Dijon so a connection with the earlier vicomtes de Beaune is not impossible.  The name “Thibaut” only features in the earlier family in the varied form “Thibert”.  It is not known whether these two forms related to the same name. 

 

1.         THIBAUT de Beaune Vicomte de Dijon.  He is named in the charter dated to [1092/1101] quoted below.  The chronology of his wife’s family suggests that Thibaut was active in the mid- to late-11th century but no source has been found which provides any precise dates.  m --- de Dijon, daughter of GAUTHIER Vicomte de Dijon & his wife ---.  A charter dated to [1092/1101] recites the past history of property whose possession was later challenged, naming as previous possessors "Vuido cognomina Dives qui habuit filium Vualterium", the daughter of Gauthier who married "Tetbaldus de Belno vicecomes Divionensis" and the latter couple's daughter who married "Josbertus de Castellione"[31].  Thibaut & his wife had one child:

a)         LUCIE de Beaune .  A charter dated to [1092/1101] recites the past history of property whose possession was later challenged, naming as previous possessors "Vuido cognomina Dives qui habuit filium Vualterium", the daughter of Gauthier who married "Tetbaldus de Belno vicecomes Divionensis" and the latter couple's daughter who married "Josbertus de Castellione"[32].  "Josbertus Rufus" donated property to Clairvaux by undated charter, dated to before 1126, witnessed by "Lucia uxor Josberti…Josbertus filius Josberti…Gertrudis uxor ipsius Josberti junioris"[33].  "Josbertus Rufus" donated property to Clairvaux by undated charter, dated to before 1126, witnessed by "Lucia uxor Josberti…Josbertus filius Josberti…Gertrudis uxor ipsius Josberti junioris"[34]m GOSBERT [II] “Rufus”, son of --- (-[1118/25], bur Clairvaux)

 

 

 

B.      SEIGNEURS d’ANTIGNY et de PAGNY (VIENNE)

 

 

The castle of Antigny is situated about 20 kilometres north-west of Beaune in the present-day French département of Côte-d’Or, arrondissement Beaune, canton Amay-le-Duc.  Pagny is located about five kilometres north-east of Pouilly-sur-Saône and 20 kilometres east of Beaune also in the département of Côte-d’Or, arrondissement Beaune, canton Seurre

 

 

1.         GUY d’Antigny (-after 1178).  Seigneur d’AntignyGuido dominus Antiniaci” granted pasturage rights on his lands to “grangie de Crespeio”, with the consent of “Sibilla uxor mea et due filie mee Flora et Acharia”, by charter dated 1178[35]m SIBYLLE, daughter of --- (-after 1178).  Guy & his wife had two children:

Two brothers:

1.         HUGUES d’Antigny (-27 May, after Mar 1235)Seigneur d’Antigny et de PagnyA. 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[38].  The necrology of Besançon Saint-Etienne records the death “VI Kal Jun” of “Huguo dominus de Antigney” and the donation made by “Huguo filius eius[39]m BEATRIX de Vienne, daughter of GUILLAUME [IV] Comte de Mâcon, [titular] Comte de Vienne & his second wife Scholastique de Champagne (-after Mar 1235)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[40]Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1250 under which [her son] "Hugo comes de Vienna dominus Pagneii" donated property to the abbey of Mont-Sainte-Marie, for the souls of "patris mei Wilelmi comitis Viennensis et matris meæ Beatricis", naming "Wilelmum comitem Viennensem avunculum meum"[41].  Her son inherited the titular right to the county of Vienne.  Hugues & his wife had two children:

a)         HUGUES de Vienne (-after Jul 1269, bur Baume-les-Nonnains)Seigneur de Pagny"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"[42]

b)         HENRI de Vienne (-after Jun 1284).  Seigneur de Sainte-Croix.  Hugues de Antigné sires de Paigné et...Henriz de Paigné sires de Sainte-Croiz ses freres” reached agreement over the succession of “Phelippe seignor de Antigné nostre oncle” with “Hugues dux de Bergoigne” in particular “por chief de la damoisalle c’on disoit qui estoit fille celui Phelippe notre oncle” by charter dated Feb 1250 (O.S.)[43]

-        SEIGNEURS de SAINTE-CROIX

2.         PHILIPPE d’Antigny (-after Aug 1249).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated Feb 1250 (O.S.) under which “Hugues de Antigné sires de Paigné et...Henriz de Paigné sires de Sainte-Croiz ses freres” reached agreement over the succession of “Phelippe seignor de Antigné nostre oncle” with “Hugues dux de Bergoigne” in particular “por chief de la damoisalle c’on disoit qui estoit fille celui Phelippe notre oncle[44]Seigneur d’Antigny.  "Philippus dominus Antignei" donated "mansum...apud Musigney" to Autun Saint-Symphorien by charter dated Jul 1248[45].  The testament of “Philippus dominus Antigneii” made on leaving for Jerusalem, dated 1248, chose burial “apud Cistercium” and made donations to religious houses[46].  “Philippe d’Antigny chevalier” referred disputes with the Knights Hospitallers at Beaune to arbitration by charter dated Aug 1249[47]m ([1235/36]) as her second husband, ELISABETH, widow of PIERRE des Barres, daughter of --- & his wife [Elisabeth de Montréal Dame de Meursault] (-[5 Jan ----], after 1238).  Her family origin and two marriages are indicated by the following document: “Elisabeth dame d’Antigny et de Meursault” donated revenue from property at Meursault to the abbey of la Bussière, with the consent of “Philippe d’Antigny son mari...[et] par ses enfants Gui et Alyxant dame de Noyers et par sa fille Flore qu’elle a eu dudit Philippe” by charter dated 1238[48].  The obituary of Cîteaux records the death “Non Jan” of “Helisabeth domina de Muressaut”, which could apply to this Elisabeth or to her mother[49].  Philippe & his wife had one child: 

a)         FLEUR d’Antigny ([1236/37]-after [1257]).  Some doubt about the legitimacy of her birth is suggested by the curious wording of the charter dated Feb 1250 (O.S.) under which “Hugues de Antigné sires de Paigné et...Henriz de Paigné sires de Sainte-Croiz ses freres” reached agreement over the succession of “Phelippe seignor de Antigné nostre oncle” with “Hugues dux de Bergoigne” in particular “por chief de la damoisalle c’on disoit qui estoit fille celui Phelippe notre oncle[50].  “Elisabeth dame d’Antigny et de Meursault” donated revenue from property at Meursault to the abbey of la Bussière, with the consent of “Philippe d’Antigny son mari...[et] par ses enfants Gui et Alyxant dame de Noyers et par sa fille Flore qu’elle a eu dudit Philippe” by charter dated 1238[51].  The marriage contract between “Gui de Vergy fils de Guillaume de Vergy sénéchal de Bourgogne et de Clémence sa femme” and “Flore d’Antigny fille de Philippe seigneur d’Antigny et d’Elisabeth sa femme”, specifying that her father granted “ce qu’il possédait à Champlitte” as dowry, is dated May 1239[52]Dame d’Antigny.  “Flore dame d’Antigny femme de Philippe de Montagu seigneur d’Antigny et de Gergy” gave her property “à Beaune, Volnay” to “Hugues duc de Bourgogne” by charter dated 1251[53].  “Flores dame de Antigne fame Phelipe de Montagu seignor de Antigne et de Gerge” transferred her rights “à Beaune”, held by “sires Phelipes de Antigne mes peres”, to Hugues IV Duke of Burgundy by charter dated 1252[54].  “Phelipes de Montagu li filz mom sire Oedon çay en arriers seignour de Montagu et...Floraz feme de cestui Phelipe la fille mom si Philipe çay en arriers seignour de Anteigne” sold “la moitié de Port” to “Hugom conte palazim de Borguoigne et à...Alis...sa feme” by charter dated Aug 1253[55].  “Philippus dominus de Chagné...Floros domina de Antigneyo et uxor supradicti Philippi” confirmed the rights granted to the town of Chagné by “pater meus Odo quondam dominus Montisacuti et Chagneyaci et Elizabeth uxor eius mater mea” by charter dated Nov 1253[56]Betrothed (contract May 1239) to GUY de Vergy, son of GUILLAUME de Vergy & his wife Clémence ---.  m (before 1251) [as his first wife,] PHILIPPE de Montagu Seigneur de Chagny, son of EUDES de Bourgogne Seigneur de Montagu & his wife Elisabeth de Courtenay (-after 1277). 

 

 

HUGUES de Vienne, son of HUGUES Seigneur d’Antigny et de Pagny & his wife Beatrix de Vienne (-after Jul 1269, bur Baume-les-Nonnains)Seigneur de Pagny[Titular] Comte de Vienne: "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"[57].  “Hugues de Antigné sires de Paigné et...Henriz de Paigné sires de Sainte-Croiz ses freres” reached agreement over the succession of “Phelippe seignor de Antigné nostre oncle” with “Hugues dux de Bergoigne” in particular “por chief de la damoisalle c’on disoit qui estoit fille celui Phelippe notre oncle” by charter dated Feb 1250 (O.S.)[58].  “Henris de Pagny sires de Sainte Croix” swore homage to “Jehans cuens de Borgoigne et sires de Salins...Ysabiel de Cortenay la contesse”, with the exception of responsibilities towards “Hugon d’Antigny seignor de Pagny mon frere”, by charter dated 1255[59].  Chorier’s Histoire de Dauphiné records that “Jean de Burnins” Archbishop of Vienne bought all rights in Vienne from Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny “au prix de sept mille livres[60].  Pelot dates this purchase to 1263[61].  “Hugues cuens de Vienne sires de Paigny et Henri sires de Sainte Croix freres” made various commitments to Hugues IV Duke of Burgundy by charter dated end-Jul 1269[62].  

m ALIX, daughter of --- (-1302, bur Baume-les-Nonnains).  “Phelippes dit de Vienne et sires de Paigné chevaliers et Iehane freres d’iceluy Phelippes damoiseaus, fil cay en arriers de bone heurée recordation Hugon cay en arriers conte de Vienne” reached agreement with “nostre...mere Aalys dite contesse de Vienne et cay en arriers dame de Paigné” concerning her dower by charter dated Oct 1277[63].  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not been identified.  Père Anselme states that she was Alix de Villars Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône, daughter of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Thoire et Villars & his first wife Beatrix de Bourgogne (doubts about the identity of Humbert [III]’s first wife are discussed in the document BURGUNDY KINGDOM-BRESSE & BUGEY), noting that she died in 1302 and was buried near her husband, but does not cite the sources on which this information is based[64]An epitaph at La Baume-les-Nonnains records the burial of “Dame Alix de Villars femme de Messire Hugues de Vienne” who died in 1302[65]On the other hand, Europäische Stammtafeln names “Alix de Rougemont Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saòne, daughter of Thibaut [III] Seigneur de Rougemont” as wife of Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny[66].  The question is further complicated by another table in Europäische Stammtafeln which shows Hugues’s wife as Alix de Faucogney, possible daughter of Aimon de Faucogney [Rougemont] Vicomte de Vesoul, Seigneur de Villersexel[67].  No primary source which might shed light on Alix’s correct parentage has been identified, except the epitaph quoted above.  The only point on which all three secondary sources agree is that Alix was dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  The key to resolving the problem therefore appears to be establishing the succession of the seigneurie de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  As is shown elsewhere in the present document, no reference has been found to the Pouilly family after the death of Gérard Seigneur de Pouilly, dated to [1136/43].  It is probable that Gérard died without direct heirs and that Pouilly-sur-Saône was inherited by his sister Aiglantine and her descendants, but unfortunately no source has been identified which confirms the succession. 

Hugues & his wife had [seven] children, the order of birth of the sons (apart from Philippe) is uncertain: 

1.         PHILIPPE de Vienne ([1240]-1303)His date of birth is estimated on the assumption that he was a child when he was betrothed in 1249.  Seigneur de Pagny.  “Philippe diz de Vianne chevaliers sires de Paignié et de Seurre” reached agreement with Cîteaux by charter dated Sep 1277[68]

-        see below

2.         GUILLAUME de Vienne (-1306).  A charter dated Apr 1249 records that “Hugues d’Antigney sire de Paigney” had promised to marry “Phelippe mon filz l’ainsnez ou...Guillaume mon autre fils si de Phelippe deffailloit” to “Agnes la fille à...Hugon comte palazin de Bourgoigne” when he attained the age to marry, with “Henri de Paigney on frère...” acting as guarantor[69].  Seigneur de Saint-Georges.  Père Anselme records his death in 1306 but does not cite the source on which this information is based[70]

3.         HUGUES de Vienne (-after 17 Oct 1307).  Seigneur de Pymont.  Père Anselme records that Philippe de Vienne transferred Pymont to his brother Hugues by charter dated 1286[71]Jehans dit de Vienne chevaliers sires de Mirebaul” settled disputes with Robert III Duke of Burgundy concerning “la ville de Autume”, with the consent of “Contesson de Genoves famme doudit Monseignour Jehans seingnor de Mirebaul...Huguenin dit de Vienne frere de mon dit mairi”, by charter dated 1302[72]

4.         GERARD de Vienne (-14 May 1304, bur Paris Saint-Jean de Latran).  Knight of St John of Jerusalem, Grand Prior of France.  Père Anselme records his parentage, noting that he ratified the charter dated 1286 under which his brother Philippe transferred Pymont to his brother Hugues, and his date of death and place of burial[73]

5.         JEAN de Vienne (-after 1318).  “Phelippes dit de Vienne et sires de Paigné chevaliers et Iehane freres d’iceluy Phelippes damoiseaus, fil cay en arriers de bone heurée recordation Hugon cay en arriers conte de Vienne” reached agreement with “nostre...mere Aalys dite contesse de Vienne et cay en arriers dame de Paigné” concerning her dower by charter dated Oct 1277[74].  Seigneur de Mirebel.

C.      SEIGNEURS de POUILLY-sur-SAÔNE

 

 

Pouilly-sur-Saône is located about 5 kilometres south-west of Pagny and 20 kilometres east of Beaune in the present-day French département of Côte-d’Or, arrondissement Beaune, canton Seurre.  The parents of the [four] siblings listed below have not been identified.  One of these parents (presumably their mother as no reference to any earlier member of the Pouilly family has yet been found) was well-connected with contemporary medieval families: primary sources (listed below) link Henri de Pouilly-sur-Saône to Henry I King of England, Guillaume IX Duke of Aquitaine and (possibly) Urraca Queen of Castile.  The connection with Duke Guillaume IX was presumably through Guillaume’s mother, Audearde [Hildegarde] de Bourgogne [Duchy], which fits well with the Burgundian origin of the Pouilly family.  Queen Urraca was also connected with Burgundy through her mother, Constance de Bourgogne.  The precise nature of these family connections has not been ascertained.  Although the brother named Henri is recorded as having made donations of property jointly with the seigneurs de Vergy, it is suggested that he was not a direct descendant of that family: another source (quoted below) indicates that he had been granted the property in question by his brother Hugues, whose wife was the daughter of Savaric Seigneur de Vergy.  No reference has been found to the Pouilly family after the death of Gérard Seigneur de Pouilly, dated to [1136/43].  It is probable that Gérard died without direct heirs and that Pouilly was inherited by his sister Aiglantine and her descendants (see below).  No source has been identified which confirms the subsequent succession.  Secondary sources indicate the Alix, wife of Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny, was Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône in the mid-13th century.  However, they are contradictory regarding her parentage:

·      Père Anselme states that she was Alix de Villars Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône, daughter of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Thoire et Villars & his first wife Beatrix de Bourgogne[228]

·      One table of Europäische Stammtafeln names “Alix de Rougemont Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saòne, daughter of Thibaut [III] Seigneur de Rougemont” as Hugues de Vienne’s wife[229]

·      Another table in Europäische Stammtafeln shows Hugues’s wife as Alix de Faucogney, possible daughter of Aimon de Faucogney [Rougemont] Vicomte de Vesoul, Seigneur de Villersexel[230]

No primary source which might shed light on Alix’s correct parentage has been identified. 

 

 

[Four] siblings: 

1.         HUGUES (-before [1133])Seigneur de Pouilly-sur-SaôneG[u]ido comes de Sals, Savarinus de Virziaco, Hugo de Puili” witnessed the charter dated 25 Dec [1098] under which Eudes I Duke of Burgundy donated “vineam...apud castrum Mursaltum” to Cîteaux[231].  “Haynricus Angeliacensis” donated “terram super fluvium Segunnam in Bisuntino territorio sitam...Tentenens”, given to him by “fratre meo Hugone filioque eius Gerardo”, to Cîteaux, with the consent of “frater Girardus nepos illius abbatis”, by charter dated “V Id Jul” (no year)[232].  A bull of Pope Alexander III dated 2 Feb 1164 records that “Henrici abbatis de sancto Johanne de Angelis...Symonis et Hervei dominorum de Vergiaco et Hugonis de Soliaco” donated “grangiam de Thantheneis” to Cîteaux[233]m AIGLANTINE de Vergy, daughter of SAVARIC Seigneur de Vergy & his wife Elisabeth Dame de Vergy.  "Severicus de Verziaco dominus Cabilonensis comes et uxor eius Elisabeth, et Symon filius suus et filia Ayglentina [domina] de Puliaco" sold "villam…Franceis" [Francxault] to Dijon Saint-Etienne by undated charter[234].  This source does not name her husband.  However, the fact that Hugues’s daughter was also named Aiglantine (see below) strongly suggests that Hugues was her husband.  Hugues & his wife had two children: 

a)         GERARD (-[1136/43]).  “Haynricus Angeliacensis” donated “terram super fluvium Segunnam in Bisuntino territorio sitam...Tentenens”, given to him by “fratre meo Hugone filioque eius Gerardo”, to Cîteaux, with the consent of “frater Girardus nepos illius abbatis”, by charter dated “V Id Jul” (no year)[235]Seigneur de Pouilly-sur-SaôneSimone de Vergiaco, Giraldo de Pulliaco...Johanne de Pulliaco...” witnessed the charter dated to [1133] under which “Guido de Chalgi...” donated property “in...territorio Tuntaneis” to Cîteaux[236].  “Girardus de Pulliaco”, leaving for Jerusalem, donated his part of “terram...Curvatas”, held jointly with “domno Willermo de Marriniaco et Fulcone de Malliaco”, to Cîteaux by charter dated to [1135] which notes that “pater eiusdem Girardi” had donated his share “in terra de Tonteneis” to Cîteaux before leaving for Jerusalem, witnessed by “dominus Herveius de Verziaco...[237].  “Giraldo domno [de] Pulleio...” witnessed the charter dated to [1136 or soon after] under which the abbot of Cîteaux confirmed the donation made by the monks of Losne[238].  “Girardus de Pulliaco” donated “pratum...de Panniaco” to Cîteaux by charter dated to [1136/55][239].  A charter dated to [1136/55] records a dispute between Cîteaux and “domnum Girardum de Pulliaco” concerning “terram de Tonteneis”, donated by “pater eiusdem Girardi”, witnessed by “dominus Herveius de Verziaco...[240].  A charter dated to [1143/50] records that, after the death of “sepedicto...Girardo in ipso itinere”, “domnus Willermus tunc ducis cunestabulus” disputed the division of lands made by “domnus Girardus[241]

b)         AIGLANTINE (-after 1145).  “Bosonem de Crusillis...cum uxore sua [...E[glantina]] sorore Girardi de Pulliaco”, with the consent of “duabus filiabus suis”, donated property “in terra Lastricii” to Cîteaux by charter dated 1145 or after, witnessed by “Willermus de Montefalconis maritus unius supradictarum filiarum...[242]m BOSON de Croisilles, son of --- (-after 1145).  Boson & his wife had two children: 

i)          daughter .  “Bosonem de Crusillis...cum uxore sua [...E[glantina]] sorore Girardi de Pulliaco”, with the consent of “duabus filiabus suis”, donated property “in terra Lastricii” to Cîteaux by charter dated 1145 or after, witnessed by “Willermus de Montefalconis maritus unius supradictarum filiarum...[243]m (before 1145) GUILLAUME de Montfaucon, son of --- (-after 1145).  Guillaume de Montfaucon has not been identified. 

ii)         daughter .  “Bosonem de Crusillis...cum uxore sua [...E[glantina]] sorore Girardi de Pulliaco”, with the consent of “duabus filiabus suis”, donated property “in terra Lastricii” to Cîteaux by charter dated 1145 or after, witnessed by “Willermus de Montefalconis maritus unius supradictarum filiarum...[244]

2.         HENRI ([before 1070]-Saint-Jean d’Angély 1131).  His relationship to the Aquitaine/Poitou family is indicated by Gallia Christiana which, when recording his full career, refers to him as “regis Angliæ necnon et comitis Aquitanie cognatus Heinricus [245].  Orderic Vitalis, quoted below, records Henri’s relationship with Henry I King of England but does not refer to any relationship with the dukes of Aquitaine.  The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, quoted below, records his relationship to the Poitou family but only in general terms.  His precise relationship with King Henry I, and precise connection with the Poitou family, have not been ascertained.  His date of birth has been estimated to before 1070, assuming that he was at least of adolescent years when first appointed bishop.  Bishop of Soissons before 1086.  Gallia Christiana records that Henri was appointed as bishop of Soissons by Philippe I King of France, was dismissed by the Pope, but later confirmed (undated but the same source states that, as bishop, he subscribed a charter dated 1086 under which “Raynaldo metropolitano” donated property to “Agneti Aveniaci abbatissæ…altari S. Hilarii de Marolio”)[246]"Manasses de Basilica" donated “monasterium sancti Theobaldi...juxta...castrum Basilicas” to Marmoutier, with the consent of “domno Rainaldo tunc temporis Remensi archiepiscopo et auctore D. Hilgaudo Suessionensium episcopo”, in the presence of “domni Hainrici tunc temporis Suessorum episcopi”, by undated charter[247]Gallia Christiana states that Henri became a monk at Cluny, dated to before 1093 when “Heinricus olim Suessionensis episcopus, tunc Cluniacensis monachus” subscribed a charter of “Hugonis toparchæ Luperciaci in pago Nivernensi” (no citation reference), that later he became (in turn) “prior Cluniacensis…[prior] Silvianacensis, abbas S. Johannis Angeriacensis”, was thereafter "archiepiscopus Bizuntinus" for three days and "episcopus Xantonensis" for eight days, and that finally he was appointed abbot of Peterborough, from where he was expelled after five years and returned to Saint-Jean d’Angély where he died in 1131[248].  Abbot of Saint-Jean d’Angély: a charter dated 1104 records that, after the death of "domni Ansculphi abbatis" disputes arose between "Cluniacenses et Angeliacenses monachos" relating to the election of the new abbot, that "dominum Aenricum religione et nobilitate insignitum" was eventually elected in the presence of "[Vuillelmus dux Aquitaniæ]…comes Pictavensis…et Hugone fratre comitis…" but that serious disputes persisted ("gravia…scandalia pro hoc causa apud illas tunc temporis extiterant") and that it was agreed that after abbot Henri died they would elect their own abbot[249]Henri visited Santiago de Compostela in 1121.  The Historia Compostellana records the renewal of an agreement between “Compostellanæ sedis archiepiscopum” and “reginam U.” [Queen Urraca], dated to 1121, witnessed by “En. Angliacensem abbatem ipsius regine contribulem et S. Cluniacensiem camerarium”, an earlier passage confirming the identity of these two individuals “Henrico abbati S. Joannis de Angliaco et Stephano Cluniacensi camerario[250].  The word “contribulem”, presumably the accusative case of the noun “contribulis”, could indicate that Henri and Queen Urraca were related in some way (literally “from the same tribe”).  This is the first example of use of this word which has been identified, although the use of relationship terms which are unusual in sources in other western European areas is a feature of Spanish sources.  Another possibility is that the word indicated a common connection on a broader, maybe ecclesiastical, level.  If the term does indicate a family relationship, this would presumably have been through the queen’s mother, Constance de Bourgogne, but the use of this word instead of more usual expressions such as “consanguineus” suggests that the connection may have been remote and maybe not even by blood.  Abbot of Peterborough [1127]: Orderic Vitalis records that, after the death of "Johannes Sagiensis monachus" abbot of Peterborough, the king appointed "Henrico, cognato suo…Sancti Johannis Baptistæ Angeliaci abbas" as abbot but that he was expelled by the monks and by "Guillelmo Pictavensi duce"[251].  The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle records that King Henry I in 1127 "gave the abbacy of Peterborough to an abbot named Henry of Poitou [...a relation of the king of England and of the count of Poitou...a broken-down old man] who already held the abbacy of St Jean d’Angély", adding that “as a secular clerk he had been bishop of Soissons, afterwards he became a monk of Cluny and later became prior in the same monastery, and then prior of Savigny-le-Vieux...afterwards by great intrigue he managed to get possession of the archbishopric of Besançon, but only for three days...thereupon he got possession of the bishopric of Saintes...and held it for almost a week[252].  He later retired to Saint-Jean d'Angély[253].  “Haynricus Angeliacensis” donated “terram super fluvium Segunnam in Bisuntino territorio sitam...Tentenens”, given to him by “fratre meo Hugone filioque eius Gerardo”, to Cîteaux, with the consent of “frater Girardus nepos illius abbatis”, by charter dated “V Id Jul” (no year)[254].  A bull of Pope Alexander III dated 2 Feb 1164 records that “Henrici abbatis de sancto Johanne de Angelis...Symonis et Hervei dominorum de Vergiaco et Hugonis de Soliaco” donated “grangiam de Thantheneis” to Cîteaux[255]

3.         --- .  His or her parentage is confirmed by the charter quoted below.  m ---.  One child: 

a)         GERARD .  Monk.  “Haynricus Angeliacensis” donated “terram super fluvium Segunnam in Bisuntino territorio sitam...Tentenens”, given to him by “fratre meo Hugone filioque eius Gerardo”, to Cîteaux, with the consent of “frater Girardus nepos illius abbatis”, by charter dated “V Id Jul” (no year)[256]

4.         [ROGER (-[before 1100]).  Abbé of Saint-Jean des Vignes de Soissons [1090].  Gallia Christiana names “Rogerus germanus Henrici Suessionensis episcopi” as second abbot, stating that he issued a confirmation charter 1088 and obtained a bull from Pope Urban II dated “III Id Jan” 1089, and names his successor as abbot in a charter dated 1100[257].  It is not known whether this indicates that Roger had died or whether he had resigned as abbot for another ecclesiastical appointment.  Louen, in his history of the abbey of Saint-Jean des Vignes, records that “Henry...évêque de Soissons, frère de notre abbé Roger” founded a prebend in Soissons cathedral and donated it to the abbey but he does not cite the primary source on which this information is based[258].  The primary source which confirms his relationship with Henri Bishop of Soissons has not been identified.] 

 

 

 

D.      SEIGNEURS de VERGY

 

 

Vergy, today known as Reulle-Vergy, is located about 20 kilometres north of Beaune, and about the same distance south of Dijon, in the present-day French département of Côte-d’Or, arrondissement Dijon, canton Gevrey-Chambertin.  Insufficient evidence has been found in the primary sources so far consulted to reconstitute the early generations of this family accurately.  Humbert Seigneur de Vergy declared that his lordship was "paterno et hæreditario iure"[259], indicating inheritance through the paternal line, but this has not been traced.  Primary sources which identify the suzerain of the seigneurs de Vergy have not been identified.  It is possible that they were direct vassals of the dukes of Burgundy. 

 

 

1.         HENRI, [illegitimate son of HENRI Duke of Burgundy & his mistress ---].  same person as…?  HENRI (-before 1023)Seigneur de Vergy.  J. Richard suggests that Henri Seigneur de Vergy was the son of Henri Duke of Burgundy[260].  He bases this on the transfer of the seigneurie de Vergy from Henri's son Humbert to Jean, son of Eudes Vicomte de Beaune, indicates a close family relationship, which he assumes to be one of first cousins.  However, Vergy was recorded in the hands of Jean several years before the death of Humbert, suggesting a transfer by sale rather than inheritance.  In any case, the natural heir to Vergy if it had passed by inheritance would have been Geoffroy Comte de Mâcon, son of Humbert's sister Elisabeth.  The same author links the father of Bishop Humbert with the Henri who signed a charter at Flavigny in 992.  m --- [de Bar-sur-Aube], sister of BERAUD Archdeacon, daughter of [NOCHER [I] Comte de Bar-sur-Aube & his wife Adelisa ---].  "Humbertus archidiaconus…avunculus meus Beraldus archidiaconus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [15 Feb 1023][261] which, if avunculus is used in its strict sense, indicates that the mother of archdeacon Humbert was the sister of archdeacon Béraud.  Henri & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         HUMBERT (-22 Nov 1060).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  According to the editor of the compilation of Cluny charters, Humbert was the son of "Valon Seigneur de Vergy et de Judith de Fonvens"[262].  Canon and archdeacon of Langres.  "Imbertus archidiaconus" donated property "in pago Hoscherense…in villa Salaona…" to Cluny for the soul of his unnamed parents by charter dated Apr 1020, subscribed by "Gibaldi pueri nepotis eius…"[263].  "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"[264]Seigneur de VergyBishop of Paris [1030].  "Euzelinus Parisiacensium episcopus…Verziacensium vero paterno et hæreditario jure dominus" founded Vergy Saint-Denis by charter dated 1033[265].  The necrology of Flavigny records the death “X Kal Dec” of “Humbertus Parisiorum episcopus” and his donation[266]

b)         ELISABETH de Vergy (-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"[267], 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"[268].  The editor of this compilation notes that Elisabeth was Otto's second wife, presumably because he distinguishes between his unnamed "uxoris mee" and the name of the subscriber[269].  However, no other reference to an earlier wife of Count Otto has been found.  In addition, the reference in the charter to his son Geoffroy makes it clear that not all those whose souls are invoked were in fact dead at the date of the donation.  "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"[270].  "Wigo vicecomes et uxor mea Eufemia" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Elisabeth comitissa"[271].  "Otto comes apud Matisconem civitatem" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Helisabeth uxoris eius"[272].  "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"[273], showing that Elisabeth predeceased her husband.  m (before 1016) as his first wife, OTHON [II] de Mâcon, son of GUY de Mâcon [Bourgogne-Comté] & his wife Aélis de Mâcon ([1000]-[1033/41]).  He succeeded in 1026 as Comte de Mâcon

c)         [---.  m ---.] 

i)          GIRBALD .  "Imbertus archidiaconus" donated property "in pago Hoscherense…in villa Salaona…" to Cluny for the soul of his unnamed parents by charter dated Apr 1020, subscribed by "Gibaldi pueri nepotis eius…"[274].  "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"[275]

 

 

1.         JEAN [de Beaune], son of EUDES Vicomte de Beaune & his wife Ingola --- (-after 1053).  "Odo Belnensis vicecomes" with the consent of "uxoris suæ nomine Inge et filiorum eius Aquionis abbatis et Joannis" are named in a charter dated 1012 as donors of part of the property exchanged between "Willelmus abbas Divionensis et Amadeus Flaviniacensis abbas"[276]Seigneur de Vergy before 1053.  

 

 

[Two possible siblings]: 

1.         SAVARIC (-1120 or after).  He is called Seigneur de Châtel-Censoir in the chronicle of Vézelay[277]Seigneur de VergyComte de Chalon.  A charter dated to [1096] records that "Gaufridus de Dunziaco" had sold "partem mediam comitatus Cabilonensis" to "domno Saverico…avunculo suo" on leaving for Jerusalem "cum Wydone de Tyhæra" and that "Saverico Cabilonensi comite…cum uxore sua" sold the same to Gauthier Bishop of Chalon with the approval of "Simonem filium suum cum uxore sua…et Arvæum filium alterum"[278].  "Severicus de Verziaco dominus Cabilonensis comes et uxor eius Elisabeth, et Symon filius suus et filia Ayglentina [domina] de Puliaco" sold "villam…Franceis" [Francxault] to Dijon Saint-Etienne by undated charter[279].  "Savaricus Verziacensis..." subscribed the charter dated 16 Feb 1107 under which Hugues II Duke of Burgundy confirmed protection to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon[280].  A charter of La Ferté-sur-Grosne, dated to after 1113, records that "Savarico comite" sold Châtelet-Chalon to Hugues Duke of Burgundy[281]m ELISABETH, daughter of --- (-after 1115, maybe after [1120/24]).  "Elisabet de Virziaco castro" donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "viri sui domni Saverini comitis et filiorum suorum Simonis et Arvei", recorded among donations in an undated early 12th century charter[282].  The monks of Saint-Germain-des-Prés donated land apud Gilliacum”, acquired from “Aimonem et conjugem eius Waronem...et Widonem filios eiusdem”, to Cîteaux, with the consent of “Helisabeth...domina castri Virziacensis et filii eius Arnulfus...cognomento Cornutus”, by charter dated to [1103/08] or [1110/16][283]Helisabet...domina castri Virziacensis et filii eius, Arnulfus...cognomento cornutus...et coniux eius filiusque eorum Rainaldus et filia” confirmed a donation to Cîteaux by charter dated to before 1110[284].  “Domina Virziacensis castri Elizabeth” returned “terra Gergulii” to Cîteaux by charter dated 1 Apr, after 1115, witnessed by “...Arnulfus cornutus et filius eius Rainaldus...[285].  ["Elizabet domna Verziacensis" restored "mansum in villa…Modeliacus" [Meuilley] to Dijon Saint-Etienne by charter dated to [1120/24], with the consent of "filii sui Rotdulfus…Crassus et Grivellus præpositus"[286].  It is unclear whether this document relates to the same Elisabeth.]  Savaric & his wife had [six] children:

i)          SAVARIC de Vergy (-[1166]).  "Savaricus filius Hervei Vergiaci, cognatus…Guidonis [domini Vergiacensis]" is named in an undated charter which records the stormy relationship between the abbey of Cîteaux and the Seigneurs de Vergy[297].  Named as son of Hervé in a charter of St Etienne de Dijon[298].  He must have died before his father's charter dated 1167 which specifies that his brother-in-law had been named heir to Vergy.

m firstly ISABELLE de Choiseul, daughter of RAYNARD de Choiseul Seigneur de Bourbonne & his wife Alix [de Joinville Dame de Sailly] (-before 1319).  According to Dubois, an inscription at Morimond records the burial of “Guillaume de Vergy” and “Isabeau de Choiseul sa femme” who died “1300 [incorrect] et ----[436].  This epitaph is not recorded in the letter dated 4 Feb 1661 which records epitaphs of other members of the Choiseul family.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Guillaume de Vergy, whose first wife was Isabelle de Choiseul, died “[13 Jun/10 Dec] 1360”[437].  If it is correct, as shown in the same table, that his parents married in 1263, this date of death is very late.  Europäische Stammtafeln also shows this couple’s son succeeding as Seigneur de Bourbonne and Seigneur de Sailly, which if correct suggests that Isabelle’s parentage is correct as shown here.  The right to the seigneurie de Bourbonne passed to her children, long after she died, as shown by the charter dated Jul 1338 under which Philippe VI King of France notified that “Guillaume de Vergy sire de Mirebel chevalier” claimed “le chastel de Bourbonne...pour cause de ses enfanz” and confirmed his grant of the castle[438]

m secondly (after 1319) as her second husband, AGNES de Durnay Dame de Vuillafans-le-Neuf, widow of JEAN [II] Seigneur de Montfaucon, daughter of MILON de Durnay Seigneur de Vuillafans-le-Neuf & his wife Philippa --- (-30 Jan, 1349 or after).  “Guillaume de Vergey signour de Mirbel et madame sa femme” and “monsignour Eude de la Roiche pour Jehan de Nuefchastel” agreed to divide the territories of “la dicte madame de Mirebel” by charter dated 13 Feb 1347 (O.S.) and 4 Mar 1347 (O.S.)[439].  “Annex de Durney dame de Mirebel” declared having granted part of “le chastel de Villauffans” to “mon...fil Jehan de Nuechastel...ma fille sa suer”, with the consent of “Guillaume de Vergy sires de Mirebel” for “la dite dame Annel dame de Mirebel ma femme”, by charter dated 26 May 1348[440].  The necrology of Theulay abbey records the death “III Kal Feb” of “domina Agnes de Durnay uxor domini Willelmi de Vergeio et domina de Mirebello[441]

a)         GUILLAUME de Vergy (-1374).  His parentage is confirmed by the 1375 document quoted below.  The date of the first marriage of his daughter Jeanne indicates that Guillaume must have been born from his father’s first marriage.  Seigneur de Mirebeau et de Bourbonne.  Guillaume de Vergy Seigneur de Mirebel” granted rights to “my bourgeois et homes de Mirebel” by charter dated 11 Mar 1372[445]A register dated 1375 records an agreement between Petrum de Barro scutiferum...bailliuum liberorum defuncti Guillelmi de Vergiaco annis minorum” and “Ioannem de Vergiaco militem” concerning “possessione et saisina castrorum de Mirabello, de Bourbone, de Soilliaco et de Chois” claimed by “eidem defuncto Guillelmo...ex successione defuncti Ioannis de Vergiaco patris sui[446].  Lefebvre records more details concerning the dispute in question, including a decision of the Parlement dated 24 May 1374, Pierre’s allegiance to Charles V King of France on behalf of the children dated “31” [sic] Sep 1374, and another settlement dated 27 Feb 1380 (O.S.?)[447]m as her first husband, AGNES de Jonvelle Dame de Jonvelle et de Sexfontaines, daughter of PHILIPPE Seigneur de Jonvelle & his wife Guillemette de Charny Dame de Charny et de Châtel-Censoir (-[1408]).  A register dated 24 Jul 1389 records that Philibertus dominus de Bouffremonte miles et Agnes de Ioinvilla nunc eius et antea uxor defuncti Guillelmi de Vergeio scutiferi domini Mirebelli” claimed against “Ioannem de Vergeio dominum de Fonuento et Henricum de Boffremonte ad causam eius uxoris”, stating that “defunctus Guillelmus de Vergeio” married “dictam Agnetem” by whom he had “Ioannem de Vergeio et Ionname ipsius Henrici uxorem et Margaretam ab hac luce substractam”, that after Guillaume’s death “prædicta Agnes” in 1375 had “fortalitia de Borbonna, de Soilleyo et de Espernolul...pro dotalitio” and that “dictus Ioannes filius Guillelmi” had by testament dated 27 Jan [1389, (N.S.) from the context] appointed “prædictum de Fonuento pro duobus portionibus et uxorem dicti Philiberti pro tertia parte” as his heirs[448].  She married secondly ([1375]) Philibert Seigneur de Bauffremont.  Duchesne records that Agnès married secondly in 1375 “Philebert Seigneur de Bauffremont Chevalier” with whom she sued “en la Cour de Parlement pour la succession de Jean de Vergy Seigneur de Mirebeau son fils” against “Jean de Vergy Seigneur de Fouvens soy disant heritier testamentaire d’iceluy” and against “Henry de Bauffremont mary de Jeanne de Vergy seur du mesme deffunct[449].  Duchesne cites no source, but he must be referring to the 24 Jul 1389 register cited above.  Guillaume & his wife had three children: 

i)          JEAN de Vergy (-[17 Jan/Mar] 1389).  A register dated 24 Jul 1389 records that Philibertus dominus de Bouffremonte miles et Agnes de Ioinvilla nunc eius et antea uxor defuncti Guillelmi de Vergeio scutiferi domini Mirebelli” claimed against “Ioannem de Vergeio dominum de Fonuento et Henricum de Boffremonte ad causam eius uxoris”, stating that “defunctus Guillelmus de Vergeio” married “dictam Agnetem” by whom he had “Ioannem de Vergeio et Ionname ipsius Henrici uxorem et Margaretam ab hac luce substractam”, and that “dictus Ioannes filius Guillelmi” had by testament dated 27 Jan [1389 (N.S.) from the context] appointed “prædictum de Fonuento pro duobus portionibus et uxorem dicti Philiberti pro tertia parte” as his heirs[450].  The “1388” document of his sister Jeanne, quoted below, indicates that Jean must have died before Easter 1389, assuming that “1388” indicates O.S. which must be the case considering Jean’s testament dated 27 Jan 1389. 

ii)         JEANNE de Vergy (-[31 May 1410/1411]).  Duchesne records her parentage and marriage, arranged by “Jean de Vergy Seigneur de Fonuens son tuteur”, with “Henry de Bauffremont chevalier Seigneur de Steich, Chambellan du Duc de Bourgogne”, to whom she brought “les terres et seigneuries de Bourbonne, de Chaseaulx, Espernoul, Sailly ou Soilley, et autres”, noting that Jeanne also succeeded “à sa mère en la terre et seigneurie de Charny”, these details being confirmed by the document dated 1410 cited below[451].  [Gingins-la-Sarra raises the possibility of an earlier marriage of Jeanne with Jean de Montfaucon, saying that in Nov 1371 Jean “célébra ses fiancailles avec Jeanne de Vergy, héritière de la branche de Mirebeau” who later married ”[le] sire de Bauffremont[452].  He cites the “Testament de Jaquette de Grandson [mother of Jean de Montfaucon] de 1378”, and in a later passage says that under that testament, “considérant que Jean de Montfaucon son fils était décédé sans enfants légitimes, et que Jeanne de Vergy, sa bru, était remariée à Henri de Baufremont”, Jacquette named “Guillaume de Grandson chevalier, son frère, seigneur de Sainte-Croix et d’Aubonne” as her universal heir[453].  A copy of the testament has not been seen, but it seems unlikely that it would include Gingins-la-Sarra’s “considérant que...” phrase, which is assumed to be an extrapolation of his own (particular because Jeanne’s marriage with Henri de Bauffremont was dated five years after the testament).  Bert M. Kamp, highlighting the chronological difficulty of this supposed earlier marriage (the children of Guillaume de Vergy/Agnès de Jonvelle were minors when their father died, while the chronology of the Vergy family suggests that Guillaume himself was born in the mid-1340s), has suggested that Jean de Montfaucon’s second wife was in fact this Jeanne’s paternal aunt Jeanne (see below)[454].  His speculation is confirmed as correct by the 1878 Bulletin de la Société d’Agriculture, Sciences et Arts de Poligny which states that Gingins-la-Sarra was wrong and that Jean de Montfaucon married “sa tante, veuve de Geoffroy de Charny, seigneur de Montfort, et d’Aimon de Genève, seigneur d’Anthon” (see below), noting the marriage contract dated 29 Nov 1371 which names the bride “dame d’Anthon[455].]  A register dated 24 Jul 1389 records that “Philibertus dominus de Bouffremonte miles et Agnes de Ioinvilla nunc eius et antea uxor defuncti Guillelmi de Vergeio scutiferi domini Mirebelli” claimed against “Ioannem de Vergeio dominum de Fonuento et Henricum de Boffremonte ad causam eius uxoris”, stating that “defunctus Guillelmus de Vergeio” married “dictam Agnetem” by whom he had “Ioannem de Vergeio et Ionname ipsius Henrici uxorem et Margaretam ab hac luce substractam[456].  A document dated 1388 (presumably [17 Jan/18 Apr] 1389 (N.S.)) records that “Henricus de Boffremonte dominus de Eschechiaco miles et Ioanna de Vergeio eius uxor”, as heirs of “defuncti Iohannis de Vergeio super defuncti fratris sui” claimed against “Ioannem de Vergeyo dominum de Fonuento[457].  A register of enquiries at the Parliament, dated 31 May 1410, also records the dispute between “Henricum de Boffremont militem dominum de Steco et de Mirabello et Ioannam de Vergeyo eius uxorem” and “Ioannem de Vergeio militem Cambellanum nostrum dominum de Fonuento et Senecallum Burgundiæ”, the former claiming that “Guillelmus de Vergeio dominus de Vergeyo” died leaving “Ioanne et Ioanna de Vergeyo eius liberis...in minori ætate” and repeating the claims set out in the earlier documents[458].  A decision dated 1411 records the claim made by “Henricus de Boffremonte miles dominus de Steco et defuncta Ioanna de Vergeio eius uxor” against “Ioannem de Vergeio militem Cambellanum nostrum dominum de Fonuens[459]m (31 May 1383) HENRI de Bauffremont Seigneur de Scey, son of HUARD de Bauffremont Seigneur de Scey & his wife --- (-after 1411).  A judgment dated 31 May 1410 records a dispute between “Henricum de Boffremont militem dominum de Steco et de Mirebello” and “Iohannem de Vergeio militem cambellanum nostrum dominum de Fonuento et senescallum Burgundie” concerning the inheritance of “defunctus Guillelmus de Vergeio consanguineus suus germanus” who died 1374 leaving “tres suos liberos annis minores...Ioannem...Ioannam et quandam filiam Margaretam[460]

iii)        MARGUERITE de Vergy (-young).  A register dated 24 Jul 1389 records that Philibertus dominus de Bouffremonte miles et Agnes de Ioinvilla nunc eius et antea uxor defuncti Guillelmi de Vergeio scutiferi domini Mirebelli” claimed against “Ioannem de Vergeio dominum de Fonuento et Henricum de Boffremonte ad causam eius uxoris”, stating that “defunctus Guillelmus de Vergeio” married “dictam Agnetem” by whom he had “Ioannem de Vergeio et Ionname ipsius Henrici uxorem et Margaretam ab hac luce substractam[461]

2.         ISABELLE de Vergy ([before 1320]-before 1354).  A parliamentary registry dated 19 Feb 1389 records a claim by “ducem Barensem marquesiam Pontis” against “Ioannam de Vergeyo dominam d’Authon et Margaretam de Vergeyo dominam de Pesmes et...Ioannem de Vienna dominum de Paigny militem et Henrietam de Vergeyo eius uxorem”, naming “Henricus, Ioannes, Erardus et Petrus” as sons of Thibaut II Comte de Bar, “Henricum” as the son of Pierre and “Ysabelli de Vergeyo” as his wife, specifying that “Guillelmus de Vergeyo dominus de Mirabel miles” had “tres filias...Ysabellim, Joannam et Margaretam” by his first marriage and adding that Isabelle died aged 34[462].  This document indicates that these three daughters of Guillaume de Vergy were born from the same marriage, specified in the document as his first.  If Isabelle’s age when she died is correctly recorded in the 19 Feb 1389 document, and if it is correct that she was no longer living in 1354 as noted below, it is likely that she was born from her father’s first marriage to Isabelle de Choiseul.  Lefebvre notes that the accounts of “Jean de Flirey”, which start in 1354, makes no mention of Isabelle[463]m (contract 15 Apr 1342) HENRI de Bar Seigneur de Pierrefort, son of PIERRE de Bar Seigneur de Pierrefort & his first wife Jeanne de Vienne (-early 1380). 

Guillaume & his second wife had two children: 

3.         JEANNE de Vergy (-after 23 May 1428).  Marguerite de Vergy Dame de Pesmes mere de noble damoisel Jean de Grandson, Jehanne de Vergy Dame d’Authon et Henrie de Vergy Dame de Fontaines [...auctorisée de son seigneur et mary...Jehan de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny] seurs” shared property of “feu...leur...nepueu Pierre de Bar jadis escuyer trespassé sans hoirs de son corps...en la terre de Pusoye” by charter dated 9 Dec 1386[464]A parliamentary registry dated 19 Feb 1389 records a claim by “ducem Barensem marquesiam Pontis” against “Ioannam de Vergeyo dominam d’Authon et Margaretam de Vergeyo dominam de Pesmes et...Ioannem de Vienna dominum de Paigny militem et Henrietam de Vergeyo eius uxorem”, naming “Henricus, Ioannes, Erardus et Petrus” as sons of Thibaut II Comte de Bar, “Henricum” as the son of Pierre and “Ysabelli de Vergeyo” as his wife, specifying that “Guillelmus de Vergeyo dominus de Mirabel miles” had “tres filias...Ysabellim, Joannam et Margaretam” by his first marriage[465].  This document indicates that these three daughters of Guillaume de Vergy were born from the same marriage, specified in the document as his first.  The date of death of Jeanne (assuming that it is correctly shown above) suggests that she must have been born from her father’s second marriage (it is unlikely that his third wife was her mother, otherwise her third husband would have been her second cousin).  The document specifies that Guillaume’s daughter Jeanne married “defuncto Gaufrido de Charny domino d’Authon...[miles]”, this wording indicating that she married Aimon as her second husband.  Duchesne reverses the order of her first and second marriages, records the parentage of Geoffroy de Charny as shown below, and names their daughter “Marguerite de Charny Dame de Lirey, mariée à Humbert Comte de la Roche Seigneur de Villers-Sexel” whose heir “François de la Palu dit de Varambon chevalier Comte de la Roche et Seigneur de Villers-Sexel” sold all his rights in “les terres et seigneuries de Beaumont sur Vigenne, de Champagne, Regnane, Regnanette, Blaigney, Oiselley, Bessey, Dampierre sur Vigenne, et Courchamp” to “Jean bastard de Vergy Seigneur de Richecourt et de Cusey[466].  Her second marriage is also indicated by the following documents: an undated document records an agreement between “dominam Beatricem de Geneua comitissam de Saluciis” and “dominam Ioannam de Vergeio dominam de Authone” and a document dated 16 Jul 1393 recording the payment received by the latter from “Fralins Marquis de Saluces et de Beatrix de Geneue sa femme[467].  Her third marriage is confirmed by the 1878 Bulletin de la Société d’Agriculture, Sciences et Arts de Poligny which states that Jean de Montfaucon married “[la] veuve de Geoffroy de Charny, seigneur de Montfort, et d’Aimon de Genève, seigneur d’Anthon”, noting the marriage contract dated 29 Nov 1371 which names the bride “dame d’Anthon[468].  See above, under Jeanne’s niece Jeanne (wife of Henri de Bauffremont), for the latter’s mistaken identification as the wife of Jean de Montfaucon.  Père Anselme records her testament dated 22 May 1428[469], although this date is surprisingly late for the daughter of Guillaume de Vergy by his second marriage.  Duchesne summarises this testament of “Dame Jeanne de Vergy Dame d’Authon et de Beaumont sur Vingenne” under which she founded “un anniversaire à Theulley” for which she donated money “...assignée sur la seigneurie de Courchant[470]m firstly GEOFFROY de Charny Seigneur de Savoisy, de Lirey, et de Montfort, son of GEOFFROY de Charny Seigneur de Savoisy et de Lirey & his wife --- (-killed in battle Poitiers 19 Sep 1356).  m secondly as his second wife, AIMON de Genève Seigneur d’Anthon, son of HUGUES de Genève Seigneur d'Anthon & his first wife Isabelle Dame d'Anthon (-7 Nov 1369).  m thirdly (contract 29 Nov 1371) as his second wife, JEAN de Montfaucon Seigneur de Vuillafens, son of GERARD de Monfaucon Seigneur de Vuillafans et d’Orbe & his wife Jacquette de Grandson (-killed in battle near Asti [May/Jun] 1372). 

4.         MARGUERITE de Vergy (-1 Nov 1398, bur Theulay).  “Marguerite de Vergy Dame de Pesmes mere de noble damoisel Jean de Grandson, Jehanne de Vergy Dame d’Authon et Henrie de Vergy Dame de Fontaines [...auctorisée de son seigneur et mary...Jehan de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny] seurs” shared property of “feu...leur...nepueu Pierre de Bar jadis escuyer trespassé sans hoirs de son corps...en la terre de Pusoye” by charter dated 9 Dec 1386[471]A parliamentary registry dated 19 Feb 1389 records a claim by “ducem Barensem marquesiam Pontis” against “Ioannam de Vergeyo dominam d’Authon et Margaretam de Vergeyo dominam de Pesmes et...Ioannem de Vienna dominum de Paigny militem et Henrietam de Vergeyo eius uxorem”, naming “Henricus, Ioannes, Erardus et Petrus” as sons of Thibaut II Comte de Bar, “Henricum” as the son of Pierre and “Ysabelli de Vergeyo” as his wife, specifying that “Guillelmus de Vergeyo dominus de Mirabel miles” had “tres filias...Ysabellim, Joannam et Margaretam” by his first marriage[472].  This document indicates that these three daughters of Guillaume de Vergy were born from the same marriage, specified in the document as his first.  The date of death of Jeanne suggests that she must have been born from her father’s second marriage.  If that is correct, Marguerite as youngest of the three was also the daughter of Guillaume’s second wife.  The document specifies that Guillaume’s daughter Marguerite married “defuncto Iacobo de Grançon domino de Pesmes [miles]”.  The testament of “Margareta de Vergeyo domina de Pesmis”, dated 10 Jun 1396 published mid-Nov 1398, chose burial “in parrochiali ecclesia de Pesmis” between the bodies of “quondam bone memorie...Jacobi de Grandissono domini de Pesmis...mariti mei et...quondam...Guillelmi filii mei de Grandissono”, bequeathed property to “filie mee Alidi de Grandissono domine de Talemey...filie mee Hugonete de Grandissono domine de Poppeto...”, and appointed “filium meum Johannem de Grandissono” as her heir[473].  An epitaph at Theulay records the burial of “Marguerite de Vergy Dame de Pesmes qui fut femme de...Iean de Gransson chevalier et seigneur dudit lieu” who died “le jour...de Toussaints” 138--[474]m (Dijon before 1346) JACQUES de Grandson Seigneur de Pesmes, son of OTHON Seigneur de Grandson & his wife Jeanne de Pesmes (-[Jun/19 Dec] 1381, bur Pesmes Saint-Hilaire).

Chapter 2.    CHALON-sur-SAÔNE

 

 

The county of Chalon, successor to the pagus Cabilonensis, was located north of the county of Mâcon, east of Autun, centred on Chalon-sur-Saône and adjacent to the county of Burgundy to the east.  It straddled the river Saône south of its confluence with the Doubs.  While many gaps and uncertainties exist in the information provided by the surviving primary sources, the history of the county was checkered and violent.  The earliest record of the county of Chalon identified in the primary sources was the appointment of Ekkehard (of the Carolingian family of Nibelung/Childebrand) as comte de Chalon in 863.  He was also appointed comte d'Autun and comte de Mâcon in 873, suggesting the importance of his role in the area which later evolved into the duchy of Burgundy.  It is assumed that Ekkehard continued to hold all three counties until his death in [876/77], although it is not clear who succeeded him.  The dispute over control over Burgundy involving Boson, future King [of Provence], must have started shortly after Ekkehard died.  King Boson's brother Richard was installed as comte d'Autun and comte d'Auxerre, and it is possible that he also assumed control over Chalon and Mâcon. 

 

Lambert, son of Robert Vicomte de Dijon, was probably invested with the county of Chalon some time in the 950s.  No record has been found to indicate who appointed him as count.  As mentioned below, he was probably related to the early comtes de Mâcon although the precise family relationship is not known.  His descendants continued to govern the county until the death of Comte Hugues [I] in 1039, when Chalon was inherited by the deceased count's nephew Thibaut de Semur.  When Hugues [II] Comte de Chalon, son of Thibaut, died in 1079, part of the county passed to Geoffroy de Donzy, although how he derived his right, whether by purchase or inheritance is not known.  Geoffroy sold his share to his relative Savaric de Vergy, who in turn sold it to the bishop of Chalon, probably in the second decade of the 12th century.  The other part of the county was inherited in 1079 by Guy de Thiern, son of the deceased Comte Hugues’s sister, before passing to Comte Guillaume [I] (presumably Guy’s son, although the primary source which confirms their relationship has not been identified).  Thereafter the Thiern part of the county passed to two (maybe three) other counts named Guillaume. 

 

Chalon was inherited by a junior branch of the family of the comtes palatins de Bourgogne in 1227.  In 1237, Comte Jean "l'Antique/le Sage" exchanged Chalon-sur-Saône and Auxonne with his relative Hugues IV Duke of Burgundy for Salins (including its profitable salt mines, meaning the deal was economically more favourable for Jean), Bracon, Vuillefans and other seigneuries in upper Burgundy. 

 

 

 

A.      COMTES de CHALON 863-876, [956]-1039

 

 

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[482].  The Annales Bertiniani record that "filii Etkardi comitis duo, item Eokardus, Guntardus et Richuinus comites" were captured at the siege of Toulouse in 844[483], Settipani suggesting that "item Eokardus" refers to Ekkehard son of Childebrand [III] and his wife Dunna[484].  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 Comte de Mâcon [in 873][485]Philipon says that Gingins-la-Sarra “se trompe évidemment” in making these statements[486].  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"[487]

 

 

LAMBERT, son of ROBERT Vicomte de Dijon & his wife Ingeltrude --- (-22 Feb 978, bur Paray-le-Moniale).  “Leotaldus et uxor mea Berta” donated “mansus indominicatus cum æcclesia Beati Martini, quem mihi Lanbertus, consanguineus meus, dedit, et soror mea Attala michi postea reddidit, situs in pago Cabillonense, in villa Flagiaco..." to Cluny by charter dated Feb 944 (“anno VIII regnante Ludovicho rege”)[488].  "Lanbertus" is identifies as Lambert, future comte de Chalon, by Chaume[489] and Settipani[490].  The precise Dijon-Chalon/Mâcon family relationship has not been established, although Chaume suggests that it was through Lambert’s mother as noted in the document BURGUNDY DUCHY-DIJON.  "Lanberti filii eorum…" subscribed the charter dated Dec 958 under which "Rotbertus…vicecomes et coniunx mea Ingeltrudis" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire[491]Comte de Chalon. The following document suggests that Lambert became comte de Chalon during his father’s lifetime, so before 960: “Lambertus filius Rotberti vicecomitis, Ingeltrude matre ortus” obtained “comitatum Cabilonensem primus, assentante rege primoribusque Franciæ” and later donated property to Cluny “laudatum Cluniancensem abbatem...Maiolum” to found Paray-le-Moniale in 973, consecrated 977 in Lambert’s presence[492].  The Vita of St Gratus [Bishop of Chalon mid-7th century[493]] indicates more precisely that Lambert was installed as comte de Chalon between 8 Apr 956 (death of his predecessor in Chalon, Giselbert Duke of Burgundy, see the document BURGUNDY DUKES) and 16 Jun 956 (death of Hugues “le Grand”, named in the extract, who succeeded Giselbert as duke of Burgundy, see FRANCE-CAPET KINGS): “Dum Cabilonensem Hugo præsul [=Hugues “le Grand”[494]] regeret ecclesiam, primusque comes civitatis ejusdem, Lambertus nomine, comitatus obtineret monarchiam”, before relating the transfer of the saint’s relics to Paray-le-Moniale[495].  An undated document, dated by the editor to [8 Apr/17 Jun] 956 and specifying “Hugonis Magni temporibus, Lanberto Allobrogum comite”, records that “Letaldus miles, Teduini Gordonensis castri patruus” committed himself to “predicto Lanberto atque Bernardo, cognatis...suis” [for joint operations], and that “Arverni” invaded Burgundy but were defeated by “Lanbertum necnon Bernardum” who, after Letald and others were killed, donated property “in villa...Vetula Vinea, alium in loco...Moncellus...” to Perrecy[496]: Settipani reviews the identification of “Lanberto Allobrogum comite” as Lambert Comte de Chalon[497].  “Frotgarii episcopi, Rotberti comitis cum uxore sua Ingeltrude, Lamberti comitis qui consensit...et Gausberti qui consensit...” subscribed the charter dated Jun 960 under which “Frotgarius...Cabilonensis ecclesiæ...episcopus” granted “capella...in comitatu Lugd. in villa Saviniaco...pertinet ejus beneficium ad abbatiam S. Marcelli” to “Bernardo atque Evrardo”, with the consent of “Rotberti comitis, qui præfixam et abbatiam tenebat sancti Marcelli[498].  Lot indicates that “Lambert était donc le maître à Chalon pour approuver un acte de l’évêque de cette ville, confirmé déjà par son père Robert[499].  Canat de Chizy, editor of the Saint-Marcel-lès-Chalon cartulary, indicates that the reference “...Rotberti comitis...” represents the only time of which he was aware when Lambert’s father was accorded the comital title and suggests that “il est prudent de reconnaître là une faute du copiste[500]: the question then arises whether “...Lamberti comitis...” in the same document could also have been an error.  In another passage, Lot says that “Lambert fut un puissant et pieux seigneur.  Il paraît avoir été le premier personnage de la Bourgogne après le duc”, citing the Vie de Saint-Mayeul which, after recording that Cluny had attracted the patronage of illustrious persons including the emperor, the king of Burgundy and the duke of Burgundy, adds “quid de Lamberto inlustrissimo viro et nobilissimo comite?[501].  The Gesta pontificum Autissiodorensium, in recording his son Hugues de Chalon Bishop of Auxerre, states that his father “Lamberto, comitum venerabilissimo...” founded “monasterium Paredi[502], the foundation recorded im the following document.  “Comes domnus Lambertus” donated “locum...Mont...ecclesiamque Sancti Simphorani...Marliacus” to Paray-le-Moniale, undated, subscribed by “Adalaidis uxoris eius et Hugonis filii eius...[503].  "Lanbertus comes [et]…Adeleydis uxor mea" made a joint donation of "capellam beati Martini in villa Vigoseto" to Cluny by charter dated 978[504].  A document records that “comes” died “D CCCC.LXXXVIII...VIII Kal Mar” and was buried “in loco a se constructo” [=Paray-le-Moniale][505].  As his widow is named with her second husband in the charter dated Mar 979, cited below, it is assumed that "D CCCC.LXXXVIII" was an error for "D CCCC.LXXVIII". 

[m firstly ([943/46?]) ---, daughter of --- ([930/32?]-[947/55?]).  No proof has been found that Lambert had a first wife before he married his known wife Adelais: none of the authors cited below in the discussion about Adelais’s possible family origin considered this possibility.  However, the birth in [945/47] of Gerberge, shown below as Lambert’s daughter, indicates her mother’s birth in [930/32] at the latest.  If Adelais was Gerberge’s mother, she would have been aged 48/50 when she gave birth in [980] to her son Maurice (by her second Anjou husband).  While the possibility of Adelais giving birth at that age cannot be dismissed entirely (although it would be unusual), another explanation could be that an earlier wife of Lambert’s was Gerberge’s mother.  However, a contrary argument can be constructed around two observations made by Raphael Bijard (in the context of his discussion about Lambert’s wife Adelais, see below).  Firstly, he suggests that the two high profile marriages of Gerberge “poussent à croire à une origine royale de Gerberge également[506], which, if correct (which seems likely), means that this first wife would also have had illustrious family connections.  However, secondly, Bijard comments that a high profile marriage with a son of the relatively obscure vicomte de Dijon in the early 940s is difficult to imagine “vu l’environnement social des parents...Et politiquement l’intérêt d’une telle union est bien trop limité[507].  These two observations are difficult to reconcile in justifying a possible earlier marriage of Lambert’s.  In conclusion, therefore, while an earlier marriage seems the only way to resolve the potential problem of Lambert’s wife having children over such a long time period, other factors suggest that Lambert having an earlier wife is not a likely possibility.  In reviewing the proposed alternative possibilities for the family origin of Lambert’s known wife Adelais, discussed below, a remote possibility seems to be that Lot’s suggestion that Lambert married a daughter of Giselbert Duke of Burgundy may refer to this possible first wife who, in that case, would not have been named Adelais at all.] 

[As a separate point, Bijard suggests elsewhere that Adelais had an earlier husband before she married Lambert, who was Gerberge’s father (see below for a full discussion).  It seems unlikely that, if Lambert had a first wife, an earlier husband of that wife could have been the father of Gerberge.  The obstacle is the Gesta pontificum Autissiodorensium which, as noted below, when recording Lambert’s son Bishop Hugues, states that “Henrici ducis” [Henri Duke of Burgundy] married “ejus germanam” [=Gerberge][508]: it is unlikely that Gerberge would have been described as Hugues’s “germanam”, however broadly that term could be interpreted, if she had shared no blood relationship with him.] 

m [secondly] ([943/46] or ([956/60?]) [as her second husband?], ADELAIS, [widow of ---?,] daughter of --- ([930/32] or [940/45?]-after Jul 987).  The Gesta pontificum Autissiodorensium, in recording her son Hugues de Chalon Bishop of Auxerre, names his parents “ex patre Lamberto, comitum venerabilissimo, et matre Adelaïde generossima[509].  Alternative dates of birth and marriage are suggested, in light of the possibility of Lambert’s first marriage (discussed above) and Adelais’s own first marriage (see below).  Theories about her possible family origin are discussed below.  “Comes domnus Lambertus” donated “locum...Mont...ecclesiamque Sancti Simphorani...Marliacus” to Paray-le-Moniale, subscribed by “Adalaidis uxoris eius et Hugonis filii eius...[510]: the document is undated but the context suggests that the donation relates to the foundation of the abbey which is dated to 973 (see above)  "Lanbertus comes [et]…Adeleydis uxor mea" made a joint donation of "capellam beati Martini in villa Vigoseto" to Cluny by charter dated 978[511].  Adelais married secondly (Mar 978 or [Mar 978/early 979]) as his second wife, Geoffroy I "Grisegonelle" Comte d'Anjou, who acted as Comte de Chalon from their marriage until he died in 987.  "Gausfredus comes [et]…Adeleidis uxor mea" jointly donated land in "pago Cabilonensi" by charter dated Mar 979, her first marriage being deduced from "Hugo filius Lanberti comitis" acting jointly with them and signing "Hugonis filii eius" directly after "Adeleidis" in the subscriptions[512].  The alternative dates for Adelais’s second marriage are suggested by the uncertainty whether “Mar 979” was “O.S.” or “N.S.”: in the former case, Adelais would have married within days of her first husband’s death.  Her first and second marriages are confirmed by the charter dated to [988] in which "Hugo comes" [=Hugues Comte de Chalon, her son by her first marriage, see below] donated property to Cluny "pro absolutione patris Lantberti", the document also naming "mater mea Adelaydis et frater meus Mauricius" [confirmed as her son by her second marriage by other sources cited in the document ANJOU][513].  “...Adalaidis comitissæ humilis et Hugonis filii eius, Rotberti vicecomitis...” subscribed the charter dated 30 Nov 980 under which Raoul Bishop of Chalon confirmed a donation of property in Chalon made to Cluny by “Ageno archidiaconus noster[514].  "Gauzfredi comitis, Adaleidis comitissa" subscribed a charter dated 18 Oct 984[515].  The following document confirms that Adelais survived her second husband (who died 21 Jul 987) as it names her son as Comte de Chalon: “Cabilonensium comes, domnus Hugo et mater eius...Adeleidis, et domnus Mauricius, frater eius” donated “unam vineam...in villa Paion” to Paray-le-Moniale and property “in Laviniaco, in beneficio de comite Lamberto et uxore eius Adeleide et filio eorum Hugone” by undated charter[516].  Suggesting Adelais’s date of death more precisely must await the emergence of any later documents which name her. 

Concerning Adelais’s possible family origin, over the years there has been much speculation none of which is completely conclusive:  

§  In 1619, Duchesne named “Adheis, ou Adelheis, que je pense avoir esté sœur de Guillaume I Comte d’Arles” as Lambert’s wife[517].  His narrative is confused: he is apparently referring to Guillaume II Comte d’Arles (died 993), which is chronologically impossible (see the document PROVENCE). 

§  In 1625, Duchesne then suggested that Adelais was the daughter of Robert de Vermandois Comte de Meaux et de Troyes (see CHAMPAGNE-TROYES)[518].  This suggestion also seems chronologically difficult to sustain (unless Adelais was Lambert’s second wife, see above) and, in any case, would mean that the two wives of Geoffroy I Comte d'Anjou would have been sisters, no mention of which has been found in any source.  Lot (in 1891) dismisses the existence of this person as “purement hypothétique et inconnue à l’histoire” and suggests that “il est impossible qu[e] [Lambert] ait acquis le comté de Chalon” through such a marriage [he assumes that Lambert acquired Chalon through his marriage, see the next point][519].  Chaume also highlighted the problem of obtaining a Papal dispensation for Adelais’s second Anjou marriage if Robert was her father[520]

§  Lot indicated that “il faut...nécessairement que la femme du comte Lambert soit Adélaïde, fille de Gilbert” (“Adelais, daughter of Giselbert Duke of Burgundy & his wife Ermengarde ---”), on the assumption that Lambert’s appointment to Chalon was in succession to Duke Giselbert, the previous holder, by right of his wife[521].  Poupardin (in 1907) accepted Lot’s conclusion[522].  Chaume (1925) disagreed, commenting that “C’était oublier...la qualité de primus comes ‘fondateur d’une ligne nouvelle, sans lien avec la précédente’, que les textes assignent à deux reprises à Lambert[523].  Chaume’s observation appears supported by the source cited above which records that “Lambertus...” obtained “comitatum Cabilonensem primus, assentante rege primoribusque Franciæ[524].  On the other hand, Settipani highlights firstly that, even in the 9th century “avant l´hérédité formelle des charges”, the king “prenait garde en général” to appoint to a county a person with local connections “afin d’éliminer au maximum les risques de contestations et d’augmenter l’assise politique de son protégé”, and secondly that the phrase “assentante rege” does not exclude “et même présuppose, un droit à la succession”.  Settipani concludes that “il reste donc une certaine vraisemblance à l’idée d’un lien entre Adélaïde et Giselbert, mais certainement pas de certitude comme on le croyait[525].  Presumably, if this person “Adelais” was Giselbert’s daughter, she would have been different from his known daughter Adelais “Werra” who married Robert Comte de Meaux.  A completely different possibility is that Giselbert’s daughter was Lambert’s first wife, and that she was not named “Adelais” at all. 

§  Chaume’s own hypothesis connected Adelais with the comital family of Vienne.  He noted that Raoul Glaber named Constance, wife of Robert II King of France, as “cognata” of Bishop Hugues de Chalon (Adelais’s son, see below) and highlighted the queen’s relationship with Charles Constantin Comte de Vienne “en qui nous sommes porté à retrouver le père ou l’aïeul de la comtesse...de Chalon[526].  Settipani comments that “cette théorie...n’a guère eu de succès[527]

§  Settipani himself suggests that she was Adelais, possible daughter of Hugues [de Troyes] Comte [en Bourgogne] & his wife Willa [von Thurgau].  He summarises criteria which he considers necessary for establishing her parentage (including highlighting the apparent onomastic connection with the Ottonian imperial family, her family holding property in the Auxerre and Beaune areas, descent from the kings of Upper Burgundy, and a possible relationship with Giselbert Duke of Burgundy) and concludes that his proposal satisfies his criteria, although he does add that “Tout cela est bien incertain, nous en convenons[528].  

§  Bouchard, after discussing the various theories, concludes that she prefers "to leave Adelais's origins unknown"[529], which appears to be the safest conclusion in the absence of more definite primary source data. 

On a different point, Raphael Bijard, while accepting that Adelais was the mother of four children (Gerberge, Hugues and Mathilde born to Lambert, and Maurice d’Anjou), suggests that Gerberge was born from an earlier marriage of her mother’s.  He highlights two problems which he says are resolved by this suggestion: firstly, the two high profile marriages of Gerberge “poussent à croire à une origine royale de Gerberge également”, and secondly the gap between the births of Gerberge ([945]) and Lambert’s known children Hugues and Mathilde represents “[un] constat frappant et anormale” which “la mortalité infantile ne peut expliquer seule[530].  Concerning Bijard’s first point, his suggested candidate for her first husband (see below) would have the required illustrious ancestry.  Bijard comments that Adelais’s marriage in the early 940s with the son of the relatively obscure vicomte de Dijon is difficult to imagine “vu l’environnement social des parents...Et politiquement l’intérêt d’une telle union est bien trop limité”, whereas if Adelais, as widow of another illustrious person married in the 940s, married Lambert in the mid- to late-950s, he would by then have been a more “acceptable” spouse after his appointment as count in Chalon and consolidation of his position of influence in Burgundy[531].  However, Settipani’s proposed ancestry for Adelais, if correct, already demonstrates sufficient imperial and royal connections without needing a suitably connected first husband.  On Bijard’s second point, other factors could explain a long gap between births (marital differences, the husband’s extended absences...) in addition to infant mortality, such that this reason by itself would not appear to necessitate an earlier marriage.  Nevertheless, an earlier marriage could explain why, after the death of Lambert’s son Hugues without direct heirs, Chalon passed to the children of his sister Mathilde, apparently ignoring what would have been the superior claim of Gerberge's own numerous descendants (among whom the powerful count palatine of Burgundy) if she had been Lambert’s older daughter.  Rodulfus Glaber does record rivalry between Hugues and Gerberge’s son Othon-Guillaume Comte de Mâcon[532], which could explain why Hugues favoured his Semur nephew, but not why Othon-Guillaume’s descendants did not challenge the decision after Hugues died.  Dealing with the reference in the Gesta pontificum Autissiodorensium to “Henrici ducis” [Henri Duke of Burgundy] having married “ejus germanam” [=Gerberge, “eius” referring to Hugues], Bijard contrasts this last phrase with “huic non pervenerat affinitate germanus frater”, used in the Gesta in relation to Hugues himself, suggesting that the difference introduced an intentional nuance to indicate two different family relationships[533].  If that is correct, “germanam” in this case meant sister sharing the same mother, but not father, even though the term more frequently indicates a sibling who shared the same father. 

Turning to Bijard’s identification of Adelais’s possible first husband, he proposes, as a suitable candidate, the third suscriber in the charter dated 28 Mar 944, which noted the obligations to Cluny of “Ademaro Lugdunensi vicecomite” relating to “Tosciaco”, subscribed by “…Leotaldi comitis, Caroli comitis, Vuilelmi comitis…”[534].  He suggests that “Vuilelmi comitis” was a possible son of Boso (died [25 Dec 920/Jun 926]), son of Guillaume I “le Pieux” Duke of Aquitaine (see the document AQUITAINE DUKES), after reviewing the Aquitaine family’s Burgundian connections[535].  For the possible identification of “Vuillemi comitis” with Guillaume [II] Comte [de Forez], see the document BURGUNDY KINGDOM-FOREZ & LYON, which also refers to the Forez family’s possible connections with the ducal family of Aquitaine.  

Bijard’s proposal of an earlier marriage of Adelais, however, does not resolve the potential chronological difficulty of Adelais giving birth to children between [945/47] (Gerberge), when aged maybe 15, and [980] (Maurice), when she would have been 48/50 years old.  Bijard acknowledges this problem, but observes that it represents “un contexte exceptionnel concernant sa longévité propre et concernant ses maternités, mais pas irréaliste[536].  To justify “pas irréaliste”, he cites the cases of Eléonore d’Aquitaine (wife successively of Louis VII King of France and Henry II King of England, last child born 1166/67 at age 45) and Adelais [Blanche], daughter of Foulques II Comte d’Anjou (four/five husbands, children probably born over a 25/30 year period).  As discussed above, a possible solution to this chronological problem would be an earlier marriage of Lambert with an otherwise unrecorded wife by whom he fathered Gerberge, although as explained above other factors suggest that that solution may be incorrect. 

Lambert & his [first/second] wife [or the first husband of that second wife] had one child: 

1.         [GERBERGE ([945/47]-11 Dec [987/991]).  Her name and two marriages are confirmed by the Chronicle of Saint-Bénigne, interpolated into the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, which names "Guilelmum Ottonem et eius matrem Gerbergam" when recording that her son was adopted by his mother's second husband "dux Burgundie Henricus"[537].  Her birth date is estimated from the estimated birth date of her son by her first marriage in [960/62].  Her family origin is indicated by the Gesta pontificum Autissiodorensium which, in recording Hugues de Chalon Bishop of Auxerre, notes that “Henrici ducis” [Henri Duke of Burgundy, Gerberge’s second husband, see below] married “ejus germanam[538].  The difficulties with identitying Gerberge’s parents are discussed above in the context of the marriage(s) of Lambert.  [A completely different possible family origin is indicated by Lot who comments that “...Gerberge semble avoir été plutôt fille de Letald, comte de Mâcon[539].  He cites the 1885 study of the reign of Robert II “le Pieux” King of France by Pfister, who suggests that “germana” in the Gesta should be interpreted as “cousin” and that Gerberge was the daughter of Comte Létald[540], which he says is consistent with an undated charter (dated to [9 Jun 1017/28 Aug 1025, as issued “apud Matisconum...regnante Roberto Rege cum filio Hugone”) under which “Otho comes Matiscensis” (Othon [II] Comte de Macon, Gerberge’s great-grandson, see the document BURGUNDY DUCHY-MÂCON & BEAUJEU) confirmed the donation to Cluny of “villam Aniscum...in vicinio Araris fluminis sitam”, which “ex hereditate Sancti Vincentii ad ius comitatus nostri ab antiquis delegata obvenit : sicuti iam antè comes Leotaldus atavus meus, per testamentum, præcepto Ludovici regis...[541].  Pfister indicates that “atavus” meant that Létaud was Othon [II]’s direct ancestor, and that Gerberge therefore must have been his daughter.  Poupardin rejects Pfister’s opinion, commenting that “l’hypothèse de cette filiation paraît inadmissible” and suggesting that “atavus” should be interpreted “dans le sens assez vague d’ancêtre[542].  Settipani highlights Chaume’s hypothesis that the atavus relationship could be explained by the descent of Comte Othon [II]’s mother (about whom nothing is otherwise known) from Létaud, although he highlights other difficulties with that suggestion[543].  In any case, Othon-Guillaume’s close relationship with the Chalon family is shown by the subscription list in the following document, which would be difficult to understand if he was descended from the Mâcon family: “Hugonis episcopi, Henrici ducis, Ottonis comitis, Guidonis comitis, Mauricii comitis, Rodberti vicecomitis, Gaufredi, Richardi comitis...” subscribed the charter dated May 999 which records that Hugues Comte de Chalon and bishop of Auxerre donated Paray-le-Monial to Cluny[544].  Othon-Guillaume’s nepos relationship with Bishop Hugues is also confirmed by the following document: "Domnus Hugo comes Cabilonensium" donated property "in pago Augustudunensi in villa Martiniacensi" to Paray-le-Monial by undated charter [but presumably dated to before he became bishop], subscribed by "Hugonis comitis, Ottonis nepotis eius, Teudbaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[545].]  “Roclenus Nevernicæ sedis...præsul” donated “altare...in provincia Nevernensium...[et] in villa Guarigniaci” to Nevers Saint-Cyr by charter dated Apr 986, subscribed by “...Henricus Burgundiæ dux...Guillelmus comes...Girberga comitissa, Landricus gloriosus miles...[546].  The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 11 Dec of "Gerberga comitissa uxor Henrici ducis"[547]m firstly (before [960/62]) ADALBERTO II King of Italy, son of BERENGARIO II King of Italy [Ivrea] & his wife Willa of Burgundy ([932/936]-Autun [30 Apr 971 or [972/975]]).  m secondly ([973]) as his first wife, HENRI Duke of Burgundy, son of HUGUES "le Grand" Duc des Francs & his third wife Hedwig of Germany ([948]-Château de Pouilly-sur-Saône 15 Oct 1002).  He adopted his wife's son by her first marriage, Otto-Guillaume later Comte de Bourgogne et de Macon.] 

Lambert & his [second] wife had two children: 

2.         HUGUES de Chalon ([after 955?]-1039).  The Gesta pontificum Autissiodorensium records “Hugo Cabilonensis, ex patre Lamberto, comitum venerabilissimo, et matre Adelaïde generossima” as bishop of Auxerre, adding that he succeeded to his father’s county “huic non pervenerat affinitate germanus frater[548].  Hugues’s birth date is difficult to estimate, but it is assumed that his stepfather’s accession to Chalon, soon after the death of his father Lambert, indicates that he was still a minor at the time.  “Comes domnus Lambertus” donated “locum...Mont...ecclesiamque Sancti Simphorani...Marliacus” to Paray-le-Moniale, undated but presumably relating to the abbey’s foundation in 973 (see above), subscribed by “Adalaidis uxoris eius et Hugonis filii eius...[549].  "Hugo filius Lanberti comitis" jointly donated land in "pago Cabilonensi" with "Gausfredus comes [et]…Adeleidis uxor mea" by charter dated Mar 979, signing "Hugonis filii eius" directly after "Adeleidis"[550].  “...Adalaidis comitissæ humilis et Hugonis filii eius, Rotberti vicecomitis...” subscribed the charter dated 30 Nov 980 under which Raoul Bishop of Chalon confirmed a donation of property in Chalon made to Cluny by “Ageno archidiaconus noster[551].  "Hugo comes" donated property to Cluny "pro absolutione patris Lantberti", also naming "mater mea Adelaydis et frater meus Mauricius" by charter dated to [988][552].  Rodulfus Glaber names "Hugo filius Lanberti Cabilonensis comitis" as his father's only son, specifying that he was "episcopus Autissioderi" and an opponent of "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius"[553].  It is likely that Hugues was a minor at his father's death in light of his mother's rapid remarriage and his stepfather's assumption of the title Comte de Chalon in his place.  He succeeded his stepfather in 987 as Comte de Chalon.  “Cabilonensium comes, domnus Hugo et mater eius...Adeleidis, et domnus Mauricius, frater eius” donated “unam vineam...in villa Paion” to Paray-le-Moniale and property “in Laviniaco, in beneficio de comite Lamberto et uxore eius Adeleide et filio eorum Hugone” by undated charter[554].  "Domnus Hugo comes Cabilonensium" donated property "in pago Augustudunensi in villa Martiniacensi" to Paray-le-Monial by undated charter [but presumably dated before the donor became bishop], subscribed by "Hugonis comitis, Ottonis nepotis eius, Teudbaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[555]Bishop of Auxerre 999.  Hugues Comte de Chalon and bishop of Auxerre donated Paray-le-Monial to Cluny by charter dated May 999, subscribed by “Hugonis episcopi, Henrici ducis, Ottonis comitis, Guidonis comitis, Mauricii comitis, Rodberti vicecomitis, Gaufredi, Richardi comitis...[556].  "Hugo episcopus Autisiodorensium" donated property "medietatem curtis…Givriacum in Divionensium site" to Cluny for the soul "patris mei Lanberti matrisque mee Adheleydis" by charter dated 1019, which refers to the prior donation by "soror mea Maheldis et sponsus eius Gauzfredus"[557].  "Wido clericus" donated property "in pago Cabillonense" to Cluny by charter dated 1020, subscribed by "Ugo comes et episcopus et nepos eius Otto comes…"[558]

3.         MATHILDE de Chalon (-before 1019).  "Domnus Hugo comes Cabilonensium" donated property "in pago Augustudunensi in villa Martiniacensi" to Paray-le-Monial by undated charter [but presumably dated before the donor became bishop], subscribed by "Hugonis comitis, Ottonis nepotis eius, Teudbaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[559].  "Gausfredus et uxor mea Mahaldis et filii mei Gausfredus, Herveus, Oddo, Tethbaldus, Lanbertus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [1015][560].  "Hugo episcopus Autisiodorensium" donated property to Cluny by charter dated 1019, which refers to the prior donation by "soror mea Maheldis et sponsus eius Gauzfredus"[561].  Her parentage and her marriage are confirmed by the charter of "Tetbaldus comes Cabilonensis" dated [1050] which names "Lamberti avi mei [et] Adheleydem comitissam aviam meam"[562].  It is unlikely that her marriage could have taken place much earlier than [990] considering the general chronology of the family, although this date is too inexact to include as her likely marriage date.  Dame de Donzy.  According to Bouchard, Mathilde is shown in the 12th century genealogy of the family as the first wife of Comte Geoffroy[563]m as his second wife, GEOFFROY I Seigneur de Semur, son of JOCERAN de Semur & his wife Richoara --- (-[1020]).

THIBAUT de Semur, son of GEOFFROY [I] Seigneur de Semur & his second wife Mathilde de Chalon dame de Donzy (-Tolosa [1065]).  "Gausfredus et uxor mea Mahaldis et filii mei Gausfredus, Herveus, Oddo, Tethbaldus, Lanbertus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [1015][564].  His parentage is also deduced from the charter of "Gaufredus" dated [1054] which names "Tetbaldus comes avunculus ipsorum" (referring to Geoffroy and Dalmas, sons of Dalmas)[565].  “Tetbaldus comes Cabilonensium” donated property to Châlons Saint-Marcel by undated charter which records that “comes Gaufredus” married “aviam meam Adheleydam comitissam” after the death of “avii mei Lamberti” and names her son “avunculus meus domnus Hugo comes et episcopus”, and is subscribed by “Ermentrudis eius coniugis…[566].  "Domnus Hugo comes Cabilonensium" donated property "in pago Augustudunensi in villa Martiniacensi" to Paray-le-Monial by undated charter subscribed by "Ottonis nepotis eius, Teudbaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[567].  "Tedbaldi comitis nepotis eius" witnessed a charter dated 1035 immediately after "domni Hugonis comitis"[568].  He succeeded his maternal uncle in 1039 as Comte de Chalon

m ERMENTRUDE, daughter of ---.  "Ermentrudis eius coniugis" subscribed the charter of "Tetbaldus comes Cabilonensis" dated [1050][569].  Her origin is not known. 

Comte Thibaut & his wife had three children: 

1.         HUGUES de Chalon (-in Spain [Nov/early Dec] 1079).  "Hugo Cabillonensis comes" made a concession to Cluny for the soul of "Tetbaldi patris mei"[570].  He succeeded his father in [1065] as Comte de Chalon.  He travelled to Spain in [1078/79] to fight the Moors, probably accompanying Hugues I Duke of Burgundy.  The relatively precise range of his estimated date of death is provided firstly by the charter referred to above which was witnessed by "Oddo dux", who succeeded as duke of Burgundy after the abdication of his brother Hugues (which is dated to [Oct/Nov] 1079), and secondly by his widow subscribing a document with her second husband dated 25 Dec 1079 at Dueñas[571]m ([1065]) as her first husband, CONSTANCE de Bourgogne, daughter of ROBERT I "le Vieux" Duke of Burgundy & his first wife Hélie de Semur ([after 1045]-[Jan/Feb] or [3 Apr/25 Oct] 1093, bur Sahagún, León, royal monastery of Santos Facundo y Primitivo).  The Chronicon Trenorciensi records that "Constantiæ…filia Roberti Ducis" married firstly "Hugonis Cabilonensis Comitis" and secondly "Hispaniæ Rex Adefonsus"[572].  A charter dated 1087 of "Ducem Burgundiæ Oddonem" recalls a donation to Tournus abbey by "comitissa Cabillonensis filia Rotberti ducis", after the death of "mariti sui Hugonis comitis", adding that she subsequently became "Regina Galliciæ et Hispaniarum"[573].  She married secondly (late 1079 or 8 May 1081) as his second wife, Alfonso VI King of Castile and León.  "Infanta donna Urraka Regis domni Adefonsi filia" names her mother "Constantie regina" in her donation to Cluny dated 22 Feb 1117 "Spanish Era"[574], although the date was presumably AD as 1117 Spanish Era was equivalent to 1079 AD.  An early 12th century document at Fleury records that "filiam Roberti ducis Bugundionem…Constantiam" married Alfonso VI King of Castile and was mother of a daughter who married "Raymundo comiti"[575].  The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Queen Constance" as the second of the "five legitimate wives" of King Alfonso[576].  Her second marriage date is estimated based on the likely estimated death date of her first husband in [Nov/early Dec] 1079 and her subscribing a document dated 25 Dec 1079 at Dueñas with her second husband[577].  Queen Constance was instrumental in having the Roman rite replace the Visigothic rite in the churches of Castile.  "Adefonsus…Hispaniarum rex…cum coniuge mea Constantia regina" donated property to the monastery of San Salvador de Oña by charter dated 1 May 1092[578].  The date of her death is fixed by her last known mention in a charter dated 25 Jul 1093 and a donation by King Alfonso to the monastery of Sahagún dated 25 Oct 1093, which does not include Queen Constanza's name in the subscription list[579].  Pérez’s history of Sahagún monastery, published in 1782, states that "Doña Berta…Reyna…está enterrada no lejos de Doña Constanza en la Capilla" of the monastery, but does not quote the inscription which confirms this statement[580]

2.         ADELAIS de Chalon (-1080 or after).  "Domna comitissa Adheleidis [Teudbaldi comitis filia" donated property to Paray-le-Monial with the consent of "domnus Wido de Tier filius eius, domnus Hugo Dalmatius, domnus Gaufredus Donzi" by undated charter[581]m GUILLAUME de Thiern, son of --- (-after Nov 1083).

The precise process by which Geoffroy de Donzy succeeded to part of the county of Chalon has not been ascertained.  He was first cousin of Hugues Comte de Chalons (who died in 1079) through their fathers, but it is unclear why part of Chalon should have been inherited by him in preference to the deceased count’s sisters.  As noted below, Geoffroy de Donzy sold his share of the county to his avunculus Savaric Seigneur de Vergy to fund his participation in the First Crusade.  It is not known whether avunculus can be interpreted in its strict sense of maternal uncle or whether the family relationship between the two was more remote.  Savaric in turn sold his share to the bishop of Chalon.  A charter of La Ferté-sur-Grosne indicates that Savaric also sold what was termed “Châtelet-Chalon” to Hugues II Duke of Burgundy in [1113].  The duke granted that territory to one of his younger sons Hugues (see the document BURGUNDY DUCHY DUKES).

GUY de Thiern, son of GUILLAUME [II] Seigneur de Thiern & his wife Adelais de Chalon (-before 1113).  "Domna comitissa Adheleidis [Teudbaldi comitis filia]" donated property to Paray-le-Monial with the consent of "domnus Wido de Tier filius eius, domnus Hugo Dalmatius, domnus Gaufredus Donzi" by undated charter[591].  He succeeded [his maternal uncle in 1078] as Comte de Chalon, but shared the county with Geoffroy de Donzy[592].  An undated charter records that "Gaufridus de Dunziaco" held "partem mediam comitatus Cabilonensis" together "cum Wydone de Tyhæra"[593]

m ---.  The identity of Guy's wife is not known. 

Guy & his wife had [three] children: 

1.         [GUILLAUME [I] de Chalon (-[after 1147]).  There appears to be no primary source which confirms that Guillaume [I] was the son of Guy de Thiern.  Du Chesne suggests that he was the son of Comte Savaric, after whom he is named in the charter dated 1113 which is quoted below, but he proposes no convincing arguments[594].  Orbendale suggests his affiliation with Guy de Thiern, whom he would have succeeded in his share of the county, highlighting especially that Guillaume would not have been named as one of “duorum comitum” in the 1113 document if Savaric had been his father, but as “filii sui[595].  On the other hand, the possibility that his part of the county of Chalon passed to Guillaume [I] in some other way, maybe by marrying Guy de Thiern’s daughter, cannot be totally excluded in the absence of explicit primary sources.  He succeeded [his father] as joint Comte de Chalon.  A charter dated 1113 records the foundation of the abbey of La Ferté and names “duorum comitem...Savarici...et Guillelmi[596].  Bouchard suggests that he appears to have acquired the remaining part of the county around the time Savaric de Vergy sold Châtelet-Chalon to the duke of Burgundy after 1113[597], but this would appear not to be correct given the undated charter, quoted above, which specifies that Savaric sold his part of the county to the bishop of Chalon.]

a)         AGNES de Thiern .  The primary source which precisely 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"[598].  Dame de Montpensier.  "Agnes comitissa de Monte Pancero et de Grinnumniaco" donated property to Cîteaux for the anniversaries of "domini mei Raimundi filiique nostris Hugonis" by charter dated to after 28 Jun 1156[599]m firstly ([1146]) RAYMOND de Bourgogne Comte de Grignon, son of HUGUES II "Borel/le Pacifique" Duke of Burgundy & his wife Mathilde de Mayenne ([1125]-28 Jun 1156).  m secondly ([1160]) HUMBERT [IV] Seigneur de Beaujeu, son of HUMBERT [III] Seigneur de Beaujeu & his wife Alix [Elise] de Savoie.

GUILLAUME [I] de Chalon, son of [GUY de Thiern Comte de Chalon & his wife ---] (-[after 1147]).  There appears to be no primary source which confirms that Guillaume [I] was the son of Guy de Thiern.  Du Chesne suggests that he was the son of Comte Savaric, after whom he is named in the charter dated 1113 which is quoted below, but he proposes no convincing arguments[601].  Orbendale suggests his affiliation with Guy de Thiern, whom he would have succeeded in his share of the county, highlighting especially that Guillaume would not have been named as one of “duorum comitum” in the 1113 document if Savaric had been his father, but as “filii sui[602].  On the other hand, the possibility that his part of the county of Chalon passed to Guillaume [I] in some other way, maybe by marrying Guy de Thiern’s daughter, cannot be totally excluded in the absence of explicit primary sources.  He succeeded [his father] as joint Comte de Chalon.  A charter dated 1113 records the foundation of the abbey of La Ferté and names “duorum comitem...Savarici...et Guillelmi[603].  Bouchard suggests that he appears to have acquired the remaining part of the county around the time Savaric de Vergy sold Châtelet-Chalon to the duke of Burgundy after 1113[604], but this would appear not to be correct given the undated charter, quoted above, which specifies that Savaric sold his part of the county to the bishop of Chalon.  ["Willelmus comes Cabilonis et Huo filius ducis Burgundie" donated property to la Ferté by charter dated 1147[605].  There is no indication in the document whether it refers to Guillaume [I] or Guillaume [II] Comte de Chalon.] 

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

Guillaume [I] & his wife had [two] children: 

1.         [GUILLAUME [II] de Chalon (-[1174]).  No primary source has been identified which confirms that Guillaume [II] was the son of Guillaume [I].  There is in fact a difference of opinion about whether there were three comtes de Chalon named Guillaume, as sustained by Du Chesne[606], or only two as indicated by Orbandale[607].  Du Chesne’s position is more probable.  Guillaume [I] was already adult when he was named in 1113, although younger than his fellow comte de Chalon Savaric whose name appears before his in the 1113 document.  It is unlikely, therefore, that Guillaume [I] was involved in the attacks on Cluny, dated to 1165.  The dates of the marriages of the Chalon daughters (see below) also indicate that there were three comtes named Guillaume: Isabelle’s marriage to Hugues de Bourgogne is dated to [1149], Alix’s first marriage to 1164, while Beatrix married firstly in [1186], which suggests that the three belonged to different generations of the family.  Guillaume succeeded [his father] as Comte de Chalon.  “Odone Burgundiæ Duce et Guillelmo Comite Cabilonensi” subscribed the charter dated 14 Dec 1148 under which Humbert Bishop of Autun consecrated the church of Saint-Lazaire[608].  Hugues le Poitevin’s Histoire de Vézelay records that Louis VII King of France attacked “Guilelmum comitem Cabilonensem” in reprisal for the attacks by “Guilelmus filius eius” against Cluny, in late 1165[609].  The Historia Ludovici VII Regis records that “Guillelmus comes Cabilonensis diaboli vestigia sequens” attacked the church of Cluny and killed monks and that King Louis captured Guillaume and deprived him of his county, granting half to the duke of Burgundy and the other half to the comte de Nevers[610].  The process by which the county was restored to the Chalon family, as well as the timing of this restoration, has not been traced.  "Guillielmus...comes Cabilonensis", fearing his end, renounced his rights over Perrecy in favour of Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire by charter dated 1174[611].]  m ---.  The name of Guillaume's wife is not known.  It is possible that she was --- de Miribel-en-Dombes, daughter of ---, assuming that she was the mother of Alix, possible daughter of Guillaume [II], who is recorded as “Dame de Miribel”, and that that Miribel was Miribel-en-Dombes as suggested below.  Guillaume [II] & his wife had [two children]:

a)         GUILLAUME [III] de Chalon (-3 Jan 1203).  Hugues le Poitevin’s Histoire de Vézelay records that Louis VII King of France attacked “Guilelmum comitem Cabilonensem” in reprisal for the attacks by “Guilelmus filius eius” against Cluny, in late 1165[612].  He succeeded his father as Comte de Chalon.  "Willelmus comes Cabilonensis" granted exemptions to Cluny by charter dated [1180][613].  "Philippus Francorum rex" confirmed a settlement of a dispute concerning "domum de Paredo" between "comes Cabilonensis Willelmus et pater suus" and the abbey of Cluny by charter dated [1 Nov 1180/4 Apr 1181][614].  These two documents presumably resolved the long-standing enmity between the comtes de Chalon and Cluny, although the texts do not refer to the previous problems.  He went to Jerusalem in 1189[615].  The necrology of Saint-Vincent records the death "III Non Jan" of "W Cabilonensis comes", adding "et pro filia sua comitissa"[616]m ---.  The name of Guillaume's wife is not known.  Guillaume [III] & his wife had one child:

i)          BEATRIX (-Tournus 7 Apr 1227, bur Abbaye de la Ferté-sur-Grosne)The necrology of Saint-Vincent confirms that Guillaume's successor was his daughter when it records the death "III Non Jan" of "W Cabilonensis comes", adding "et pro filia sua comitissa"[617].  Her first marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 1227 under which "Simon de Joinville, comme mari de Béatrix, fille d'Etienne comte d'Auxonne et de Béatrix comtesse de Chalon" swore homage to the duke of Burgundy for the château de Marnay[618].  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not been identified.  She succeeded her father in 1203 as Ctss de Chalon.  “Beatrix cometissa Cabilonensis” made an agreement with the abbey of Autun Saint-Martin relating to “mansis in territorio de Chenovis” by charter dated Aug 1226[619].  The necrology of Saint-Vincent records the death "VII Id Apr" of "Beatrix nobilis comitissa Cabilonensis"[620].  The necrology of Maizières records the death "VII Id Apr" of "Beatricis comitisse Cabilonensis"[621]m firstly ([1186], divorced [1197/1199]) as his first wife, ETIENNE [III] Comte d'Auxonne, son of ETIENNE [II] Comte d'Auxonne [Bourgogne-Comté] & his wife Judith de Lorraine (before Oct 1172-Marnay 16 Mar 1241).  m secondly (before 1200) as his first wife, GUILLAUME [III] des Barres Seigneur d'Oissery, de Saint-Pathus et de Silly, son of GUILLAUME [II] des Barres Comte de Rochefort Seigneur d’Oissery et de la Ferté-Alais[622] & his wife Amice of Leicester (-Nicosia 15 Nov [1249]). 

b)         [ALIX de Chalon (-before 23 Mar 1187).  Her parentage is indicated, and her first marriage confirmed, by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names "Henricum, patrem Iosceranni Grossi" as the son of "Iosceranum" and "sorore comitis Cabilonensis"[623].  From a chronological point of view, her first marriage dated to 1164 suggests that she must have been the daughter of Comte Guillaume [II].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1203/15] which records an agreement between "dominam de Brantione et filios eius…Bernardus Grossus et Guillelmus Grossus…Ulricus de Baugiaco maritus domine de Brancione" and Cluny, brokered by "episcopo Cabilonensis et…domina Beatrix comitissa Cabilonensi"[624].  Bouchard records the first wife of Ulric [V] as "dame de Mirebeau" (died 1187 or before) and speculates that she may have been Elisabeth, daughter of Odo Seigneur de Mirebeau & his wife Aegidia ---, who is named with her parents in 1174[625].  Presumably this is based on the charter dated 23 Mar 1187 under which her husband "Ulricus dominus Balgiacensis" donated property to Seillon, for the soul of "domina de Miribel uxoris sua iam defuncta"[626].  The "Miribel" to which this document refers has not been identified with certainty.  The reference to Alix’s second husband's great-granddaughter Simone [Sibylle] de Bâgé (wife of Amédée V Count of Savoy) succeeding as "dame de Miribel-en-Forez" suggests that the place named in 1187 was a different "Mirebeau".  Babey suggests that the “Mirebeau” in question was Miribel-en-Dombes, near Lyon (département Ain)[627]Europäische Stammtafeln[628] names Ulric's first wife as Alix de Chalon (married in 1198), specifying that she was "dame de Miribel".  The first husband of Alix de Chalon died in [1175], which places her second marriage in the right time-frame to have been the mother of Guy and therefore Ulric's first wife.  The necrology of Saint-Pierre, Lyon records the death "XVII Kal Jul" of "Alis domina de Miribello"[629]m firstly (1164) JOSSERAND [IV] Grossus Seigneur de Brancion, son of BERNARD [V] Grossus & his wife Ermengarde de Lorraine (-after 1172).  m secondly as his first wife, ULRIC de Bâgé Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse, son of RENAUD [III] Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse & his wife --- (-before 1220).] 

2.         [ISABELLE de Chalon (-15 Jun before 1166).  Her parentage is indicated by the charter dated 1186 under which her son "Guillelmus Cabilonensis" confirmed a donation to Ferté-sur-Grosne made by "pater eius Huo et avunculus eius atque avus, comites Cabilonenses"[630].  The document does not name Isabelle’s father, but the date of her marriage indicates her birth in [1130/35], which suggests that she must have been the daughter of Comte Guillaume [I].  The necrology of Beaune records the death "XVII Kal Jul" of "Ysabel comitissa et uxor Hugonis fratris ducis Burgundie"[631]m ([1149]) as his first wife, HUGUES "Rufus/le Roux" de Bourgogne, son of HUGUES II "Borel/le Pacifique" Duke of Burgundy & his wife Mathilde de Mayenne ([1122]-23 Apr 1171).  Seigneur du Châtelet de Chalon et de Meursault, by grant of his father.]

Symon de Commercy[651].  “Lore ça en arrières feme du noble baron Jehan conte de Borgoigne et seigneur de Salins et Jehan fliz dudit conte et de ladite Lore” acknowledged receiving “le chestel de Bleterans” from “Othon de Borgoigne seigneur de Salin” acting as executor of “Perrin le Boviers filz ça en arrières dudit conte” by charter dated 29 Apr 1274[652].  The necrology of the Cordeliers de Salins records the death III Non Oct” 1285 of “domina Lora comitissa Cabilonensis apud nos sepulta[653]
