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"[17]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"[18].  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"[19].  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][20]

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"[21].  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][22]

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"[23].  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][24]

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"[25]

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"[26].  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][27]

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][28]

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][29]

 

 

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"[30].  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"[31]"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"[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]m GOSBERT [II] “Rufus”, son of --- (-[1118/25], bur Clairvaux)

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[50]Seigneur d’Antigny"Philippus dominus Antignei" donated "mansum...apud Musigney" to Autun Saint-Symphorien by charter dated Jul 1248[51].  The testament of Philippus dominus Antigneii” made on leaving for Jerusalem, dated 1248, chose burial “apud Cistercium” and made donations to religious houses[52].  “Philippe d’Antigny chevalier” referred disputes with the Knights Hospitallers at Beaune to arbitration by charter dated Aug 1249[53].  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[54].  The obituary of Cîteaux records the death “Non Jan” of “Helisabeth domina de Muressaut”, which could apply to this Elisabeth or to her mother[55]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[56].  “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[57].  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[58]Dame d’AntignyFlore 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[59].  “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[60].  “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[61].  “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[62]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)

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 the early 1140s.  It is probable that he died without direct heirs and that Pouilly was inherited by his sister Aiglantine and her descendants.  Secondary sources indicate that “Alix de Faucogney, dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône”, daughter of Aymon [IV] Seigneur de Faucogney et de Villersexel and his wife Elisabeth de Mailly, married Hugues de Vienne [Antigny] Seigneur de Pagny (who died after Jul 1269, see elsewhere in the present document).  The path by which the seigneurie de Pouilly-sur-Saône later passed to the Faucogney family (by inheritance or sale) has not been traced.

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[140].  “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)[141].  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[142]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[143].  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)[144]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[145].  “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...[146].  “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[147].  “Girardus de Pulliaco” donated “pratum...de Panniaco” to Cîteaux by charter dated to [1136/55][148].  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...[149].  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[150]

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...[151].  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...[152].  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...[153]. 

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 [154].  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”)[155]"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[156]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[157].  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[158]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[159].  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"[160]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[161]He later retired to Saint-Jean d'Angély[162]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)[163].  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[164]

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)[165]

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[166].  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[167].  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"[168], 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[169].  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][170] 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"[171].  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…"[172].  "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"[173]Seigneur de VergyBishop of Paris [1030].  "Euzelinus Parisiacensium episcopus…Verziacensium vero paterno et hæreditario jure dominus" founded Vergy Saint-Denis by charter dated 1033[174].  The necrology of Flavigny records the death “X Kal Dec” of “Humbertus Parisiorum episcopus” and his donation[175]

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"[176], 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"[177].  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[178].  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"[179].  "Wigo vicecomes et uxor mea Eufemia" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Elisabeth comitissa"[180].  "Otto comes apud Matisconem civitatem" donated property to Saint-Vincent de Mâcon by charter dated to [1018/30] subscribed by "Helisabeth uxoris eius"[181].  "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"[182], 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…"[183].  "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"[184]

 

 

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"[185]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[186]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"[187]"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[188]"Savaricus Verziacensis..." subscribed the charter dated 16 Feb 1107 under which Hugues II Duke of Burgundy confirmed protection to Saint-Bénigne de Dijon[189].  A charter of La Ferté-sur-Grosne, dated to after 1113, records that "Savarico comite" sold Châtelet-Chalon to Hugues Duke of Burgundy[190]m ELISABETH, daughter of --- (-after 1115).  "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[191]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][192]"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"[193].  The title "domna Verziacensis" accorded to Elisabeth in this last document suggests that she may have been Dame de Vergy in her own right and have brought the property to her husband by marriage, although this is not beyond doubt.  “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[194].  “Domina Virziacensis castri Elizabeth” returned “terra Gergulii” to Cîteaux by charter dated 1 Apr, after 1115, witnessed by “...Arnulfus cornutus et filius eius Rainaldus...[195]Savaric & his wife had [six] children: 

a)         SIMON de Vergy (-after [1131]).  "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[196]

-        see below

b)         AIGLANTINE 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[197].  The absence of Elisabeth’s son Hervé from this document suggests that Aiglantine was one of her parents’ older children.  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.  m HUGUES Seigneur de Pouilly-sur-Saône, son of --- (-before [1133]). 

c)         HERVE de Vergy (-1171 or after).  "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[198].  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"[199]"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[200]Seigneur de Vergy.  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[201]"Symonis et Hervei dominorum de Vergiaco et Hugonis de Soliaco" donated property to Cîteaux by charter dated [1131?][202].  "Erveius Vergiaci dominus" donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "Hugo…Montis Sancti Johannis dominus, gener meus" by charter dated 1167 which specifies that Hervé had constituted his son-in-law as his heir in Vergy[203].  "Herveius dominus Vergiaci" donated property to Cîteaux by charter dated 1171 which records as present "nepote meo Erveio abbate sancti Stephani"[204]m LUCIA, daughter of ---.  She is named with her husband in a charter of La Bussière[205].  Hervé & his wife had [three] 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[206].  Named as son of Hervé in a charter of St Etienne de Dijon[207].  He must have died before his father's charter dated 1167 which specifies that his brother-in-law had been named heir to Vergy. 

ii)         ELISABETH de Vergy (-after 1196).  "Erveius Vergiaci dominus" donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "Hugo…Montis Sancti Johannis dominus, gener meus" by charter dated 1167 which also names "…filia etiam mea Elisabeth uxor ipsius Hugonis de Monte Sancti Johannis"[208].  “Hugo dominus Montis Sancti Iohannis et...Stephanus filius ipsius Hugonis” donated property “quartam partem...in terris...quæ comes Guillermus Nivernis donavit, cum...partem nostram Castri-Censorii” to Rigney abbey, with the consent of “Stephano filio predicti Hugonis et...fratre meo Guillermo...Gila uxor mea...Ysabiaus uxor mea et mater filii mei Stephani in castro canonicorum de Vergy et Iohannes filius meus...Agnes filia mea in domo de Vergi”, by charter dated 1180[209].  “Stephanus de Monte Sancti Iohannis” settled disputes “de pasturis castellaniæ Vergiaci, de vineis Perret Abonet et...” with the Cistercians, with the consent of “dominus Hugo de Monte Sancti Iohannis pater eiusdem Stephanise...domina Isabel mater predicti Stephani et domina Gilla uxor eius...Guillelmus eiusdem Stephani frater”, by charter dated 1188 witnessed by “Huo dominus Vergiaci et Simon frater eius...[210].  “Stephanus de Monte S. Iohannis” donated property “in territorio de Tarnant” to Vergy Saint-Denis, with the consent of “Hugo pater meus et Elizabeth mater mea et fratres mei Guillelmus et Pontius”, by charter dated 1196 witnessed by “...Helisabeth soror mea...[211]m HUGUES Seigneur de Mont-Saint-Jean, son of GUY Seigneur de Mont-Saint-Jean & his wife [--- de Saulx] (-after 1196).  "Erveius Vergiaci dominus" donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "Hugo…Montis Sancti Johannis dominus, gener meus" by charter dated 1167 which specifies that Hervé had constituted his son-in-law as his heir in Vergy[212]

iii)        [daughter (-before 1167).  m ---.]  One child:

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.

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[373].  The Annales Bertiniani record that "filii Etkardi comitis duo, item Eokardus, Guntardus et Richuinus comites" were captured at the siege of Toulouse in 844[374], Settipani suggesting that "item Eokardus" refers to Ekkehard son of Childebrand [III] and his wife Dunna[375]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][376]Philipon says that Gingins-la-Sarra “se trompe évidemment” in making these statements[377]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"[378]

 

 

 

LAMBERT, son of ROBERT Vicomte de Dijon & his wife Ingeltrude --- (-22 Feb 979).  "Lanbertus consanguineus meus" was named by Letald Comte de Mâcon in a charter dated 944[379], although any relationship between the early comtes de Chalon and the comtes de Mâcon has not been established unless it was through Lambert’s mother.  "Lanberti filii eorum…" subscribed the charter dated Dec 958 under which "Rotbertus…vicecomes et coniunx mea Ingeltrudis" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire[380]Comte [de Chalon].  "Lanbertus comes [et]…Adeleydis uxor mea" made a joint donation of "capellam beati Martini in villa Vigoseto" to Cluny by charter dated 978[381]

[m firstly ---.  There is no evidence that Comte Lambert had a first wife before he married Adelais.  However, if Gerberge was Lambert's daughter (which is far from certain, as explained below), it is unlikely from a chronological point of view that her mother could have been Adelais.] 

m [secondly] as her first husband, ADELAIS, daughter of --- (-after 18 Oct 984).  "Lanbertus comes [et]…Adeleydis uxor mea" made a joint donation of "capellam beati Martini in villa Vigoseto" to Cluny by charter dated 978[382].  If Adelais was the mother of all of Comte Lambert's children, she could not have been born later than [930/32].  This is early for her also to have given birth to her son by her second marriage after 978.  The date would of course be later if Adelais was Comte Lambert's second wife, as suggested above.  The origin of Adelais has been the subject of much speculation.  Settipani has suggested[383] that she was the daughter of Hugues Comte en Bourgogne and his wife Willa von Thurgau.  Chaume suggested that Adelais was the daughter or granddaughter of Charles Constantin Comte de Vienne[384]Bouchard sets out several different theories concerning Adelais's origin, with the aim mainly of explaining Lambert's accession to Chalon by inheritance through his wife.  However, none appears to be based on any primary documentation and Bouchard concludes that she prefers "to leave Adelais's origins unknown"[385].  An earlier theory was that Adelais was the sister of "Wera" Ctss de Meaux[386], which would mean that she was Adelais, daughter of Giselbert Duke of Burgundy & his wife Ermengarde [of Burgundy]Duchesne suggested that she was the daughter of Robert Comte de Meaux et de Troyes[387], although this would mean that the two wives of Geoffroy I Comte d'Anjou were sisters, no mention of which has so far been found in contemporary sources.  Another suggestion is that Adelais Ctss de Chalon was the same person as Wera-Adelais Ctss de Meaux.  However, this is even more unlikely from a chronological perspective considering the estimated birth date of Wera-Adelais and the fact that Adelais de Chalon gave birth to at least one child by her second husband, Geoffroy Comte d'Anjou, after her marriage in 979.  It would also mean that Comte Geoffroy married, as his second wife, his first wife's mother which is unlikely to have been accepted by the church.  In 1619, Duchesne[388] suggested that Adelais was the sister of Guillaume I Comte d'Arles.  Adelais married secondly (2 or 9 Mar 979) as his second wife, Geoffroi I "Grisegonelle" Comte d'Anjou, who acted as Comte de Chalon until his death in 987. 

Lambert & his [first] wife had [one possible child]: 

1.         [GERBERGE ([945]-11 Dec [987/991]).  Her name and her 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"[389].  Her birth date is estimated from the estimated birth date of her son in [960/62].  Her origin is indicated by the Vita of Hugues Comte de Chalon which refers to his (unnamed) sister as having married the duke of Burgundy[390].  Chronologically, this refers most probably to Duke Henri who died in 1002, although the original of this document has not yet been consulted to check whether the wording supports this conclusion.  Gerberge's origin has not been corroborated in the other primary sources so far consulted.  The Vita appears to indicate that Lambert Comte de Chalon was her father, but this raises several problems if it is correct.  Firstly, on the death without direct heirs in 1039 of her supposed brother Hugues Comte de Chalon, the county was inherited by the comparatively obscure children of his younger sister Mathilde, apparently ignoring the superior claims of Gerberge's own numerous descendants, among whom were the powerful counts palatine of Burgundy who would presumably not have missed the opportunity of acquiring another county.  Rodulfus Glaber does record that "Hugo filius Lanberti Cabilonensis comitisepiscopus Autissioderi" was an opponent of "Willemus, Henrici ducis priuignus, Adalberti Longobardorum ducis filius"[391], which could explain why Bishop Hugues favoured a nephew by his younger sister to succeed to his county.  Nevertheless, after the bishop's death, his past opposition to Comte Otto-Guillaume would have provided an excuse for his son to intervene in the Chalon succession if he had a legitimate claim.  Secondly, considering the likely birth date of her son, Gerberge's first marriage must have taken place while her husband and father-in-law were still reigning kings of Italy.  They were under continuous pressure from Otto I King of Germany and it is likely that Adalberto's marriage could have brought additional political support.  It is not clear how the relatively obscure count of Chalon could have provided this support.  Thirdly, after the death in 978 of Lambert Comte de Chalon, and his widow's second marriage to Geoffroy I Comte d'Anjou, no record has been found of Henri Duke of Burgundy intervening to prevent Comte Geoffroy taking control of the county of Chalon, which would have been the likely course of action if his wife was the deceased count's oldest child.  Fourthly, Gerberge's estimated birth date creates serious chronological problems (as explained further above) if she was the daughter of Lambert's only known wife Adelais.  In conclusion, considerable doubt appears to subsist concerning this origin of Gerberge, although no alternative can so far be proposed if we are to respect the wording of the Vita.  The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 11 Dec of "Gerberga comitissa uxor Henrici ducis"[392]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 [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 [three] children: 

2.         HUGUES de Chalon (-1039).  "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"[393].  That Hugues is the son of Adelais is shown by the charter dated to [988] under which "Hugo comes" donated property to Cluny "pro absolutione patris Lantberti", also naming "mater mea Adelaydis et frater meus Mauricius"[394]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"[395]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 ChalonBishop of Auxerre 999.  "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"[396]

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 subscribed by "Ottonis nepotis eius, Teudbaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[397]"Gausfredus et uxor mea Mahaldis et filii mei Gausfredus, Herveus, Oddo, Tethbaldus, Lanbertus" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [1015][398].  "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"[399].  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"[400].  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[401]m as his second wife, GEOFFROY I Seigneur de Semur, son of JOCERAN de Semur & his wife Richoara --- (-[1020]). 

4.         [--- de Chalon (-before 1018).  This possible origin of the mother of Othon [II] Comte de Mâcon is deduced from the undated charter under which "domnus Hugo comes Cabilonensium" donated property "in pago Augustudunensi in villa Martiniacensi" to Paray-le-Monial which is subscribed by "Ottonis nepotis eius, Teudbaldi nepotis eius, Maltidis sororis eius"[402].  The same relationship is stated in the charter dated 1018 under which "Vualterius Æduorum presul" donated property to the abbey of Flavigny subscribed by "Landricus comes, Otto comes nepos Hugonis episcopi, Tetbaldus comes nepos ipsius episcopi"[403], and in the charter dated 1020 under which "Wido clericus" donated property "in pago Cabillonense" to Cluny, subscribed by "Ugo comes et episcopus et nepos eius Otto comes…"[404].  One explanation is that "Otto comes" in these three charters was the same person as Othon-Guillaume Comte de Mâcon, and that he was nepos of Hugues Comte de Chalon because his mother Gerberge was Hugues's older half-sister.  However, as shown above, the theory about Gerberge's Chalon origin is far from certain.  Another possibility is therefore that the three charters refer to Othon [II] Comte de Mâcon, grandson of Othon-Guillaume, the identity of whose mother has been the subject of much speculation.  If this second possibility is correct, this unnamed daughter presumably died before her sister Mathilde as she did not subscribe the 1018 charter.  m (before 999) GUY [I] Comte de Mâcon, son of OTHON [I] Guillaume Comte de Mâcon & his first wife Ermengarde de Roucy ([982]-[1004], bur Saint-Bénigne).]

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][405].  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)[406].  “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…[407]"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"[408]"Tedbaldi comitis nepotis eius" witnessed a charter dated 1035 immediately after "domni Hugonis comitis"[409].  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][410].  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"[411].  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[412]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"[413].  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"[414]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"[415], 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"[416].  The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Queen Constance" as the second of the "five legitimate wives" of King Alfonso[417].  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[418].  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[419].  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[420].  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[421]

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[422]m GUILLAUME de Thiern, son of --- (-after Nov 1083). 

3.         ERMENGARDE de Chalon .  "Ermengardis" made a donation to Cluny dated Nov 1083, naming "Teudbaldus comes Cabilonensis" (although not specifying that she was his daughter), witnessed by "Humbertus de Borbon…viri mei" and "Humbertum filium nostrum puerulum monachum ad serviendum Deo in ipso loco"[423].  This is supplemented by the undated charter which records that "post mortem eius [comes domus Tetbaldus] filius eius domnus Hugo" agreed with "domnun Unbertum" to give "sororem Hermengardam in conjugium", before stating that "prædicta Hermengardis sentiens sibi mortem vicinam" wished to donate property to the abbey of Paray-le-Moniale, naming "filium Unbertum puerulum" whom she "obtulit Deo", which "[viri sui] domnus Unbertus" later donated by an undated charter[424].  Dame de Digoine.  m HUMBERT [I] Seigneur de Bourbon-Lancy, son of ---.

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). 

 

 

1.         GEOFFROY [II] de Donzy, son of HERVE de Donzy & his wife [--- de Vergy] (-4 Aug ----).  He succeeded [in 1078] as Comte de Chalon, sharing the county with Guy de Thiern[425].  An undated charter records that "Gaufridus de Dunziaco" had sold "partem mediam comitatus Cabilonensis", which he held "cum Wydone de Tyhæra", to "domno Saverico…avunculo suo" on leaving for Jerusalem[426].  The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 4 Aug of "Gaufridus comes Cabillon", specifying that he had become a monk "apud castrum suum Donziacum"[427]

Guillaume [I] & his wife had [three] 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[447], or only two as indicated by Orbandale[448].  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[449].  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[450]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[451].  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[452].]  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[453].  He succeeded his father as Comte de Chalon.  "Willelmus comes Cabilonensis" granted exemptions to Cluny by charter dated [1180][454].  "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][455].  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[456].  The necrology of Saint-Vincent records the death "III Non Jan" of "W Cabilonensis comes", adding "et pro filia sua comitissa"[457]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"[458].  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[459].  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[460].  The necrology of Saint-Vincent records the death "VII Id Apr" of "Beatrix nobilis comitissa Cabilonensis"[461].  The necrology of Maizières records the death "VII Id Apr" of "Beatricis comitisse Cabilonensis"[462]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[463] & 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"[464].  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"[465].  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[466].  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"[467].  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)[468]Europäische Stammtafeln[469] 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"[470]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"[471].  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"[472]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.]
