The pagus Divionensis was one of the ten pagi which were situated within the diocese of Langres, centred on Dijon where the bishop lived[1].  The county of Dijon is recorded from the late 9th to early 11th century.  The town of Dijon became the capital of the duchy of the Burgundy, into which the county was subsumed.

A.      COMTES de DIJON

 

 

1.         HUGUES (-after [881/82]).  "Hugo" donated property "infra castrum Divionis" to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated [11 Apr 881/10 Apr 882] subscribed by "Hugonis et Jotselini et Aremberti filiorum ipsius"[2]m ---.  The name of Hugues's wife is not known.  Hugues & his wife had three children: 

a)         HUGUES .  "Hugo" donated property "infra castrum Divionis" to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated [11 Apr 881/10 Apr 882] subscribed by "Hugonis et Jotselini et Aremberti filiorum ipsius"[3]

b)         JOCERAN .  "Hugo" donated property "infra castrum Divionis" to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated [11 Apr 881/10 Apr 882] subscribed by "Hugonis et Jotselini et Aremberti filiorum ipsius"[4]

c)         AREMBERT .  "Hugo" donated property "infra castrum Divionis" to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated [11 Apr 881/10 Apr 882] subscribed by "Hugonis et Jotselini et Aremberti filiorum ipsius"[5]

 

 

MANASSES [I], son of --- (-[after 912]).  The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records an undated charter of "Manasses comes" witnessed by "Walo filius eius et Manasses comes iunior"[6].  Although undated, it appears among other charters of the early years of the 10th century.  If this is the correct dating, it is unlikely that it refers to Manassès (died after 925) as his sons would at the time have probably been too young to have confirmed charters.  In addition, if the donation did refer to Manassès (died after 925) it is unclear why Walo and Manassès would have confirmed but not their brothers Hervé and Giselbert.  The conclusion is therefore that the donation relates to the father of Manassès, who has otherwise not been identified.  This interpretation appears supported by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which in 906 names "comes Manasses Divionensi", specifying that "Walo et alterius Manasses comes iunior" were his sons[7], although it is recognised that this source is not always chronologically and factually reliable.  Comte de DijonA charter dated 912 names "venerabili comite domno Manasse" as present at a judgment in an ecclesiastical court at Dijon by Garnier Bishop of Langres[8].  The word "venerabili" suggests that this document may refer to Manassès [I] rather than his son Manassès [II], although this is not without doubt. 

m ---.  The name of the wife of Manassès is not known. 

Manassès & his wife had three children: 

1.         WALO (-[after 918])Bishop of Autun"Walo…Eduorum episcopus" recovered "villam Tilionacum in comitatu Oscarensi super fluvium Sagonnam" from "fratris nostri Manasse" by charter dated 918[9]The Vita Sanctii Viventii Presbyteri names "Manasses…fratrisque sui Walonis Æduorum urbis Pontificis"[10].  The Series abbatum Flaviniacensium records that "Richardus dux et Ingelbertus" installed "Vualonem, fratrem Manasserii comitis qui gener erat B fratris Richardi ducis" as abbot of Flavigny[11].  The Series abbatum Flaviniacensium records that Walo became "pontifices Eduenses" and his death in 913[12], although this date of death is inconsistent with the source cited above. 

2.         MANASSES [II] (-925 or after)Comte de Dijon.  The Vita Sanctii Viventii Presbyteri records that "Manasses" built "monasterium in territorio Augustudunensi in loco montis Vergiaci castri" with the advice of "suæ uxoris Hermengardis fratrisque sui Walonis Æduorum urbis pontificis"[13].  The Chronicle of St Bénigne de Dijon records a donation dated 925 confirmed by "Manasse comite"[14]m ERMENGARDE, daughter of --- (-after Jun 924).  "Heriveus…Eduorum episcopus" donated property "villam Tilionacum" to the canons of St Nazaire by charter dated 31 Oct 920 which names "genitricis nostræ domnæ Hirmingardis comitissæ et fratrum nostrorum…[et] Walo presul et noster avunculus", signed by "Hirmingardis comitissa, Walonis filii eius, Gisleberti filii eius alterius, Manassæ filii eius"[15]The Vita Sanctii Viventii Presbyteri names "Manasses…suæ uxoris Hermengardis"[16]"Warulfus…virum nobilem…filio equivoco eius Warulfo" petitioned "Ermengardis comitisse…seu filii eius Gisleberti comitis" for some donated property of Saint-Marcel-lès-Chalon by charter dated Jun 924[17]A possible origin of Ermengarde is suggested by one version of the Series abbatum Flaviniacensium, as reproduced only in a 17th century secondary source, which records that "Richardus dux et Ingelbertus" installed "Vualonem, fratrem Manasserii comitis qui gener erat B fratris Richardi ducis" as abbot of Flavigny[18].  If this is correct, she was Ermengarde, daughter of Boson King of Provence & [his second wife Ermengardis of Italy].  Manassès & his wife had [five] children: 

a)         WALO (-after 924).  "Hirmingardis comitissa…Walonis filii eius, Gilleberti filii eius alterius" subscribed the testament of "Heriveus…Æduorum episcopus" dated 1 Nov 919 which names "genitricis nostræ domnæ Hirmingardis venerabilis comitissæ et fratrum nostrorum…domnus Walo pius Præsul et noster avunculus"[19].  Flodoard records that in 924 "Raginardus" captured "castellum…Mons sancti Iohannis" supported by "nepotum suorum, Walonis et Gisleberti", but that "Rodulfi rex" recaptured the castle later in the same year[20]

b)         HERVE (-after 31 Oct 920)Bishop of Autun .  The testament of "Heriveus…Æduorum episcopus" dated 1 Nov 919 names "genitricis nostræ domnæ Hirmingardis venerabilis comitissæ et fratrum nostrorum…domnus Walo pius Præsul et noster avunculus", subscribed by "Hirmingardis comitissa…Walonis filii eius, Gilleberti filii eius alterius"[21]"Heriveus…Eduorum episcopus" donated property "villam Tilionacum" to the canons of St Nazaire by charter dated 31 Oct 920 which names "genitricis nostræ domnæ Hirmingardis comitissæ et fratrum nostrorum…[et] Walo presul et noster avunculus", signed by "Hirmingardis comitissa, Walonis filii eius, Gisleberti filii eius alterius, Manassæ filii eius"[22]

c)         GISELBERT (-Paris after Easter 956).  The parentage of Giselbert is confirmed by a combination of documents.  "Hirmingardis comitissa…Walonis filii eius, Gilleberti filii eius alterius" subscribed the testament of "Heriveus…Æduorum episcopus" dated 1 Nov 919, which names "genitricis nostræ domnæ Hirmingardis venerabilis comitissæ et fratrum nostrorum…domnus Walo pius Præsul et noster avunculus"[23].  Flodoard records that in 924 "Raginardus" captured "castellum…Mons sancti Iohannis" supported by "nepotum suorum, Walonis et Gisleberti", but that "Rodulfi rex" recaptured the castle later in the same year[24].  The Vita Sanctii Viventii Presbyteri names "Manasses…filius Gislebertus eiusdem Burgundiæ Dux"[25].  Comte d’Autun: "Gislebertus…comes Heduensis" granted property to "suo fidele Guitbaldus…nec non eius coniuge Rutrudis" by charter dated 11 Dec 934, signed by "Gisleberti comitis, Ermengardi, Adaledis filiam eorum…"[26]He became GISELBERT Duke of Burgundy, after his possible brothers-in-law Raoul and Hugues "le Noir" ceded him their rights to Burgundy in [936].

d)         MANASSES (-after 31 Oct 920).  "Hirmingardis comitissa, Walonis filii eius, Gisleberti filii eius alterius, Manassæ filii eius" subscribed the charter dated 31 Oct 920 under which "Heriveus…Eduorum episcopus" donated property "villam Tilionacum" to the canons of St Nazaire which names "genitricis nostræ domnæ Hirmingardis comitissæ et fratrum nostrorum…[et] Walo presul et noster avunculus"[27]

e)         [ERMENGARDE (-before [941]).  She is named as wife of Letaud in the latter's charter dated [12 Apr] 935, which also names both his and her parents[28].  Manassès Comte de Dijon & his wife Ermengarde are the only contemporary noble couple with these names which has so far been identified in the region, but it is not certain that they were the parents of Ermengarde wife of Letaud.  m (before [12 Apr] 935) as his first wife, LETAUD Comte de Mâcon, son of AUBRY [I] Comte de Mâcon & his wife Tolana de Mâcon (915-3 Nov 961).] 

3.         RAINARD (-after 924).  "Ragenardus Autissiod Vicecomes frater Manassis" obtained approval of Charles III "le Simple" King of the West Franks for the election of Gerannus as Bishop of Auxerre in 909[29].  Flodoard records that in 924 "Raginardus" captured "castellum…Mons sancti Iohannis" supported by "nepotum suorum, Walonis et Gisleberti", but that "Rodulfi rex" recaptured the castle later in the same year[30].  

 

 

1.         --- .  m as her first husband, ---.  She married secondly Archamrad ---.  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated Jun 952 under which her son "Rodulfus comes" restored to "Adalberti levite" property "in pago Oscarense, in villa Patriniaco…in comitatu Belnense in villa Gibriaco", donated by "mater sua" who had acquired it by marriage from "Archemrado…seniore suo" by charter dated Jun 952, signed by "Rodulfo comiti, Roberto fratre suo…"[31]Two children: 

a)         RODOLPHE (-after 958).  Comte de Dijon"Rodulfus comes" restored to "Adalberti levite" property "in pago Oscarense, in villa Patriniaco…in comitatu Belnense in villa Gibriaco", donated by "mater sua" who had acquired it by marriage from "Archemrado…seniore suo", by charter dated Jun 952, signed by "Rodulfo comiti, Roberto fratre suo…"[32]Rodolphe Comte de Dijon and his brother Robert recalled their mother and her husband Archamrad in a 952 charter of Saint-Etienne de Dijon[33].  The Chronicon of Odorannus records the death in 956 of “Gislebertus comes Burgundionem”, adding that “honorem eius cum filia...Leudegarde, ex qua postea a Radulpho Divionensi pipicus factus est” was received by “Otho frater Hugonis ducis[34].  The reference to “Leudegarde, ex qua postea a Radulpho Divionensi pipicus factus est” is assumed to indicate her later infidelity: Millin suggest that “pipicus”, derived from “picus” indicating magpie, indicates cuckold, by analogy with the cuckoo and based on the mistaken impression that the two birds have similar nesting habits[35].  This suggestion is corroborated by the Annales Nivernenses which record that in 958 "Rodulfus Divioni comes" captured the château of Beaune from "seniori sui Optonis" and kidnapped his wife "filiam Gisleberti", but that the castle was recaptured by Otton "Kal Maias"[36]

b)         ROBERT (-after 952)"Rodulfus comes" restored to "Adalberti levite" property "in pago Oscarense, in villa Patriniaco…in comitatu Belnense in villa Gibriaco", donated by "mater sua" who had acquired it by marriage from "Archemrado…seniore suo" by charter dated Jun 952, signed by "Rodulfo comiti, Roberto fratre suo…"[37]same person as…?  ROBERT (-[958/60]).  Bouchard suggests that Robert Viomte de Dijon was the same person as Robert, brother of Rodolphe Comte de Dijon[38]

GEBUIN, [illegitimate] son of RICHARD "le Justicier" Duke of Burgundy & [his mistress ---] (-after Mar 951).  "Giboinus germanus suus", apparently referring to Hugues "le Noir", is named in a charter dated 18 Jan 926[39].  It is likely that he was illegitimate as he is mentioned in none of the sources which list the other brothers of Hugues.  same person as …?  GEBUIN .  There is no direct proof of co-identity of the two persons named Gebuin, but the unusual name indicates that it is probably correct.  "Gibuin" witnessed a charter of Aquinas dated May 948, and a charter of Doda (wife of Aquinas) dated Mar 951[40].  He is referred to as count in an early 10th century charter of his son Hugues[41]The Chronicle of St Pierre de Bèze records a donation by "Gibuinus et neptis mea Eraungardis" made "pro remedio animæ fratris mei Hugonis" which also names "Gibuini proavi mei et filii eius Hugonis…et Hugonis patris mei" and "fratres mei Hugo et Wido" and "sponso eius [nepti] Fulcone"[42], undated but placed in the compilation several pages after the record of another donation dated 1043.

ROBERT, son of --- (-after 952)same person as…?  ROBERT (-[958/60]).  Bouchard suggests that Robert Viomte de Dijon was the same person as Robert, brother of Rodolphe Comte de Dijon[64]"Hugo...comes et marchio" donated property "in comitatu Belnensi...in uilla...Nolliacus et...in uilla Crisentiaco", for the souls of “genitoris nostri Richardi et Adheleidis”, in the presence of “Gilbertus comes, Albericus comes et filius eius Leotaldus et Adso noster fidelis”, by charter dated 1 Sep 936, subscribed by “...Roberti uicecomitis...[65]Vicomte de Dijon.  "Rotbertus…vicecomes et coniunx mea Ingeltrudis" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire for the soul of "Ramgardis" by charter dated Dec 958 subscribed by "Lanberti filii eorum, Wichardi, Ugonis, Letaldi, Waloni"[66]

m INGELTRUDE, daughter of ---.  940.  "Rotbertus…vicecomes et coniunx mea Ingeltrudis" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire by charter dated Dec 958 subscribed by "Lanberti filii eorum, Wichardi, Ugonis, Letaldi, Waloni"[67].  The origin of Ingeltrud is unknown.  Jackman suggests, for onomastic reasons only, that she may have been Ingeltrud, daughter of Eberhard Graf im Oberlahngau, Pfalzgraf [Konradiner] & his wife ---[68].  However, this appears unlikely from a geographical perspective.  In addition, no strikingly typical Konradiner names feature among this couple's descendants.  Settipani suggests that Ingeltrud may have been the daughter of Eberhard's younger brother Otto[69].  It is more likely that she was related to the comtes de Mâcon, which would explain why Letald Comte de Mâcon names her son as "Lanbertus consanguineus meus" in his charter dated 944[70]

Robert & his wife had [three] children:

1.         LAMBERT (-22 Feb 979).  "Lanbertus consanguineus meus" was named by Letald Comte de Mâcon in a charter dated 944[71], 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 as suggested above.  "Lanberti filii eorum…" subscribed the charter dated Dec 958 under which "Rotbertus…vicecomes et coniunx mea Ingeltrudis" donated property to Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire[72]Comte [de Chalon].

D.      VICOMTES de DIJON (CHAMPLITTE)

 

 

Champlitte is located midway between Langres and Besançon, north of the town of Gray, about 40 kilometres north-east of Dijon.  Today it is located in the French département of Haute-Saône, arrondissement Vesoul, canton Champlitte.  In early medieval times it was probably located in the county of Atuyer.  Eudes [II], son of Eudes [I] “le Champenois” whose legitimacy was challenged as discussed below, is linked in primary sources with Champlitte which was presumably granted to him or his father by the duke of Burgundy.  Eudes [II] inherited the vicomté de Dijon from the family of his mother, who was the presumed niece of Gosbert [IV] de la Ferté Vicomte de Dijon who is shown in the previous section. 

 

 

EUDES [I] "le Champenois", [illegitimate] son of [HUGUES Comte de Troyes/---] & his second wife Isabelle de Mâcon (-1187 or after)The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Odonem…de Canlita" as son of "Hugo comes Campanie" and his second wife, but specifies that "dictum est a phisicis comiti Hugoni…non habebat possibilitatem generandi" and concludes therefore that Eudes could not have been Hugues’s son[87].  The identity of Eudes’s mother is confirmed by the charter dated 1155 quoted below.  The question of Eudes’s illegitimacy is not as straight-forward as might be imagined from Alberic’s Chronicle taken in isolation.  The king of France’s grant of property to Eudes suggests there was little doubt at the time about his legitimacy: the Chronique de Guillaume de Nangis records that Louis VII King of France led an army against "Thibaut comte de Champagne" and captured "le château de Vitry" which he granted to “Eudes de Champagne, neveu du comte Thibaut, qui lui avait enlevé son patrimoine”, dated to 1143[88].  The implication of this passage is that Eudes’s paternal first cousin, Thibaut IV Comte de Champagne, had raised a claim about Eudes’s illegitimacy as an excuse to seize his property, and that the French king had had limited success in invading Champagne in support of Eudes and had granted him the only property which they had succeeded in capturing.  [Seigneur de Vitry: the status of Eudes “le Champenois” in Vitry is unclear considering that Eudes Comte de Rethel and his descendants are recorded as châtelains de Vitry from the early 12th century.]  Eudes was presumably unable to retain Vitry for long as he is later recorded in Burgundy where he must have found refuge with his maternal family: “Odonem nepotem comitis Guillelmi” donated property to Besançon, for the soul of “avunculi sui comitis Raynaldi”, by charter dated 1155[89].  A further indication of Eudes’s legitimacy is provided by the imperial recognition implicit in the following  grant: Emperor Friedrich I granted Quingiacum, Lislam, Lobium”, as held by “comes Reinaldus in vita sua”, and “villam juxta Dolam...Campus-Pagani” to “Odo Campaniensis...Beatricis...consortis nostræ consanguineus”, by charter dated 26 Jul 1166, witnessed by “...Galcherus de Salins, Wido abbas, Girardus de Fontvens...Gislebertus vicecomes Visulii...Gaymarus de Cycun...[90].  The source which confirms his date of death has not been identified. 

m SIBYLLE, daughter of --- & his wife --- de la Ferté [Châtillon, Vicomtes de Dijon] (-1177, bur Acey).  A charter dated 1164 records various donations to Clairvaux, including donations by "Jobertus de Firmitate", with the consent of "uxore sua Gertrude", and by "Mathildis soror eisdem Josberti", with the consent of "Odo Campaniensis…Sibilla et uxor Odonis neptis Joberti…", witnessed by “...Erlebaldus et Johannes filii vicecomitis de Firmitate, Herbertus vicecomes de Barro[91].  According to Dunod, she was buried “dans l’abbaye d’Assé” but he does not cite the corresponding primary source[92]

Eudes [I] & his wife had six children: 

1.         EUDES [II] de Champlitte (-Constantinople May 1204, bur Constantinople Church of the Apostles).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "de Chanlita Odo et Guilelmus filius Odonis"[93]Vicomte de Dijon, which he inherited through his maternal grandmother, whose brother Gosbert [IV] "Rufus" de la Ferté was Vicomte de Dijon.  Villehardouin names "Eudes le Champenois de Champlitte and his brother Guillaume" when recording that they joined the Fourth Crusade in Sep 1200 at Cîteaux[94].  Villehardouin records the death of "Eudes de Champlitte" at Constantinople and his burial "in the church of the Holy Apostles"[95]m firstly [--- de Mont-Saint-Jean, daughter of HUGUES Seigneur de Mont-Saint-Jean & his wife Elisabeth de Vergy.  Her parentage and marriage are indicated by the undated charter under which “Stephanus de Monte Sancti Iohannis” swore allegiance to “Odo Dux Burgundiæ dominus meus ligius”, in the war with “comite Cabilonensi et...Hugone de Vergeio, et dominus de Champlite”, adding that “alter dominorum de Champlite sororius meus erat”, and naming “...Willelmum dominum Anceii et Poncium fratres meos, Willelmum de Marrignei, Hugonem de Tricastello nepotes meos” among his guarantors[96].  It is not known which of the Champlitte brothers is indicated by “alter dominorum de Champlite sororius meus”.  The naming of “...Willelmum de Marrignei...nepotes meos” among the guarantors does not help in identifying Etienne’s “sororius”: Guillaume de Marigny is assumed to be the son of Aimon de Marigny, first husband of Etienne’s sister Elisabeth, who could therefore already have been married to Guillaume de Champlitte at the time.]  m secondly (before 1200) as her first husband, EMMELINE de Broyes, daughter of HUGUES [III] de Broyes et de Châteauvillain & his second wife Isabelle de Dreux Dame de Baudémont [Capet] (-1248 or after).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1200 under which "Hugo dominus Brecarum" donated property to Clairvaux, with the consent of "Elisabeth uxor mea et Symon filius meus junior et Emelina filia mea domina de Chanlita"[97]She married secondly (1205, divorced Sep 1224) Erard [II] Seigneur de Chacenay.  "Erardus dominus Chacenaii" donated property to Montier-la-Celle with the consent of "Emelina uxor mea et filius meus Erardus et filie mee Mahaut et Johanneta" by charter dated 1218[98].  The contract of divorce between "Erardus dominus Chascegnay" and "Emeline uxoris mee", with the consent of "Elisabeth domine Castri Villani et Simonis filii sui", is dated Sep 1224, names "Oda dicta Emeline primogenita" and provides for the dowry of "M. filiam meam" on her marriage to "comiti Gigeti"[99]Eudes & his first wife had one child: 

a)         EUDETTE [Oda] de Champlitte (-after Jun 1231).  The contract of divorce between "Erardus dominus Chascegnay" and "Emeline uxoris mee", with the consent of "Elisabeth domine Castri Villani et Simonis filii sui", is dated Sep 1224, names "Oda dicta Emeline primogenita" and provides for the dowry of "M. filiam meam" on her marriage to "comiti Gigeti"[100]Dame de Champlitte until 1228.  “Guillaume de Vergy frere d’Alix de Vergy duchesse de Bourgongne” bought “la ville de Champlite” from “Hugues Chastellain de Gand et de Oede sa femme” by charter dated 1228[101]Hugo Gandensis castellanus uxorque mea Oda filiusque meis Hugo primogenitus” granted privileges to the church of Sainte-Marie de Baserode by charter dated 1228[102]Hugues châtelain de Gand et Ode sa femme” declared having sold “leur maison dite Wal et Vorhof et la terre…Boengartland” at Gent to “Alexandre fils de Bauduin fils d’Alexandre de Gand” by charter dated Jun 1231[103]m HUGO [II] Burchgraeve van Gent, son of SIGER [III] Burchgraeve van Gent & his wife Beatrix de Houdain (-[Sep/26 Nov] 1232). 

2.         GUILLAUME [I] de Champlitte (-1210).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "de Chanlita Odo et Guilelmus filius Odonis"[104]Seigneur de Landrechies.  Vicomte de Dijon"Willelmus dominus Marchie et frater Odonis Chanliti" donated property to Auberive for the soul of "fratris mei Huonis", with the consent of "Aalis uxor mea", by charter dated 1196[105].  "Guillelmus de Chanlite" confirmed the donation of “pasturas suas de Lagnia” to Quincy abbey made by “Hugo de Lagnia...”, with the support of “uxore mea Eustachia”, by charter dated 1200[106]Villehardouin names "Eudes le Champenois de Champlitte and his brother Guillaume" when recording that they joined the Fourth Crusade in Sep 1200 at Cîteaux[107].  The source are contradictory regarding the role of Guillaume de Champlitte in the conquest of Morea/Achaia.  The Livre de la Conqueste de la Morée records that “le tiers frere dou...conte de Champaigne...le Champenois” arrived “en la Morée...en un casal que on appelle Achaye à l’encontre de Patras” where he “fist fermer un chastel de motes sur mer” from where he fought the Greeks and captured Patras and Andreville[108].  A different perspective is provided by Guillaume de Villehardouin who records that “Joffrois de Ville-Hardoin qui ere niers Jofforis li mareschaus de Romanie et de Champaigne, fil son frere” left “la terre de Surie” and landed “au port de Modon” where he allied himself with “uns Griex qui mult ere Sire del païs” and conquered the territory with him, was expelled by “li fil al Grieu” after the death of his ally, joined “li Marchis” [Bonifazio di Monferrato], and proposed to “Guillelme de Chanlitte” to come and reconquer together “[la] terre...la Morée” which “li Marchis li abandona[109].  The Livre de la Conqueste de la Morée records that “li Champenois” was chosen as prince[110], from which he is generally referred to as GUILLAUME Prince of Achaia although the extent to which he governed the future principality himself is open to doubt.  All these events are dated to [1205].  Pope Innocent III wrote to the patriarch of Constantinople by charter dated 19 Nov 1205 which names "W. Campaniensis princeps totius Achaiæ provinciæ"[111].  Fine states that Guillaume was able to take control of most of the peninsula with little opposition from the Greeks whom he treated as allies, averting anarchy and civil war[112].  On hearing of the death of his older brother in 1208 he left for Burgundy to claim his inheritance, appointing a commission under the presidency of Geoffroy de Villehardouin to divide Morea into fiefs, with his nephew Hugues as his bailly in Achaia.  Guillaume died on the journey home in Apulia, followed by Hugues soon after, leaving Villehardouin as bailly until the next of kin arrived from France[113]The Livre de la Conqueste de la Morée records that “li Champenois” appointed “un sien cousin…Robert” to succeed him in Achaia but that his arrival in Greece was delayed by the machinations of Geoffroy de Villehardouin beyond the year and one day provided for in documentation agreed with Guillaume de Champlitte, failure to comply with which would result in Geoffroy being declared heir[114]Furon suggests that “ce récit tient plus de la légende que de la réalité[115]m firstly ALIX, daughter of --- (-1196).  "Willelmus dominus Marchie et frater Odonis Chanliti" donated property to Auberive for the soul of "fratris mei Huonis", with the consent of "Aalis uxor mea", by charter dated 1196[116]According to Europäische Stammtafeln, the first wife of Guillaume de Champlitte Prince of Achaia (whose son by his second marriage became vicomte de Dijon) was “Alais [de Montréal] Dame de Meursault” (no indication of the primary source on which this speculation is based)[117].  The same table shows the couple’s daughter as “Elisabeth Dame de Meursault”, who married firstly Pierre des Barres and secondly Philippe d’Antigny.  It is unlikely that Guillaume’s wife was a member of the Montréal family.  The only known daughter of Anséric [II] Seigneur de Montréal (from a chronological point of view the most likely candidate for the father of any wife of Guillaume de Champlitte) was probably Elisabeth Dame de Meursault (named in Sep 1221), the question of whose parentage is discussed in detail in the section of the present document which deals with the Seigneurs de Montréal.  No connection between her and the Champlitte family has been found.  m secondly (1196, divorced 1199) as her second husband, ELISABETH de Mont-Saint-Jean, widow of AIMON Seigneur de Marigny Connétable de Bourgogne, daughter of HUGUES de Mont-Saint-Jean & his wife Elisabeth de Vergy (-after 1210).  She married thirdly (1200) as his second wife, Bertrand de Saudon.  The primary source which confirms this marriage has not been identified.  "Bertrand de Saudon" reached agreement with Maizières abbey, with the support of "uxor mea de Monte Sancti Johannis et filii mei", by charter dated 1200[118].  "Bertrand de Saudon" donated property to Bussière abbey, with the support of "uxore sua matre domini Willelmi de Marrigni...cum duabus filiabus suis...et...suis filiis quos de prima uxore habuit, Hugone...et Bertranno, Haimone, Willelmo, Roberto et Josberto", by charter dated 1202[119].  "Bertrand de Saudon" reached agreement with Maizières abbey, with the support of "Hysabeaus uxor eiusdem Bertrandi et filii sui", by charter dated 1210[120]m thirdly ([1200]) as her second husband, EUSTACHIE de Courtenay Dame de Placy-sur-Armancon, widow of GUILLAUME de Brienne, daughter of PIERRE de France Seigneur de Courtenay & his wife Elisabeth de Courtenay (-6 Apr after 1235).  "Eustachia uxor defuncti Guillelmi de Brena" confirmed her husband’s deathbed donation to Quincy by charter dated 1199[121].  "Guillelmus de Chanlite" confirmed the donation of “pasturas suas de Lagnia” to Quincy abbey made by “Hugo de Lagnia...”, with the support of “uxore mea Eustachia”, by charter dated 1200[122]She married thirdly ([1211]) as his third wife, Guillaume [I] Comte de SancerreEustachia comitissa Sacricesaris” recorded that “filius meus...bone memorie Andreas de Brena” had requested her and “fratri meo Willelmo de Tanlay” to carry out his last wishes, and founded an anniversary for him at Auxerre Saint-Etienne where he was buried, by charter dated May 1215[123].  The necrology of La Chartreuse de Bellary records the death "6 Apr" of "Eustache comtesse de Sancerre"[124].  Guillaume [I] & his [third] wife had three children: 

a)         GUILLAUME [II] de Champlitte (-[1271/73], bur Pontailler Notre Dame).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Vicomte de Dijon.  “Guillaume de Champlite vicomte de Dijon et son frère Eudes de Lamarche” confirmed donations made to Cîteaux by “Hugues de la Corvée” by charter dated 3 Mar 1224[125]Guillaume de Champlitte seigneur de Pontsailler vicomte de Dijon” donated two serf families to Cîteaux, for the soul of “Aanor sa femme défunte”, by charter dated Aug 1241[126].  “Guillaume de Champlitte vicomte de Dijon” donated property to Notre-Dame de Pontailler, for the souls of “sa défunte femme Aanor et de Catherine sa femme”, with the consent of “ses fils Guillaume, Eude, Robert, Simon, André”, by charter dated Nov 1246[127].  "Guillelmus de Chanlita vicecomes Divionensis" donated revenue from "estaulos meos de Pontoiller" to Montiéramy, for the anniversary of “domine Katherine uxoris mee”, by charter dated Jun 1254[128].  “Guillaume de Champlitte vicomte de Dijon” donated a family of serfs to Cîteaux, for the souls of “ses femmes défuntes Aanor et Katherine”, with the consent of “Guillaume son fils aîné et de ses autres enfants”, by charter dated Oct 1254[129]m firstly ELEONORE [de Grancey, daughter of EUDES [II] Seigneur de Grancey & his wife Clémence de Chacenay] (-before Aug 1241).  “Guillaume de Champlitte seigneur de Pontsailler vicomte de Dijon” donated two serf families to Cîteaux, for the soul of “Aanor sa femme défunte”, by charter dated Aug 1241[130]Europäische Stammtafeln indicates that she was the daughter of Eudes [II] Seigneur de Grancey[131].  The primary source which confirms that this parentage is correct has not been identified.  m secondly ([Aug 1241/Nov 1246]) CATHERINE, daughter of --- (-[Jun 1254]).  “Guillaume de Champlitte vicomte de Dijon” donated property to Notre-Dame de Pontailler, for the souls of “sa défunte femme Aanor et de Catherine sa femme”, with the consent of “ses fils Guillaume, Eude, Robert, Simon, André”, by charter dated Nov 1246[132].  "Guillelmus de Chanlita vicecomes Divionensis" donated revenue from "estaulos meos de Pontoiller" to Montiéramy, for the anniversary of “domine Katherine uxoris mee”, by charter dated Jun 1254[133].  “Guillaume de Champlitte vicomte de Dijon” donated a family of serfs to Cîteaux, for the souls of “ses femmes défuntes Aanor et Katherine”, with the consent of “Guillaume son fils aîné et de ses autres enfants”, by charter dated Oct 1254[134]

a)         EUDES de Grancey (-1376[234])The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  m [ALIX d’Arcis-sur-Aube Dame de Cussy-en-Morvan, d’Ancy-le-Franc, d’Eclance et de Pisy, daughter of GUILLAUME d’Arcis & his wife Gille de Jaucourt (-after 1379)].  Europäische Stammtafeln shows her parentage and marriage[235], adding in another table that her first husband was “Renaud de Choiseul”[236], who has not been identified in the Choiseul family and may represent confusion with her supposed son-in-law.  The primary source on which this information is based has not been identified.  Eudes & his wife had children: 

i)          [[JEANNE] [de Grancey] (-[30 Nov 1385, bur Morimond]).  Dame d’Eclance.  The suggested identity of the wife of Renaud de Choiseul Seigneur d’Aigremont is based on reading several sources together.  The charter dated 24 May 1386, under which Renaud sire d’Aigremont ayant le bail de ses enfants Jean, Guillaume et Alix” provided details of “sa terre d’Eclance” to the duke of Burgundy[237], suggests that Renaud’s wife was recently deceased and that she had bequeathed Eclance to her children, who were still minors and represented by their father in dealings concerning that property.  If that is correct, the date suggests that Renaud’s wife may have been Jeanne de Grancey, whose death is recorded at Morimond: the letter dated 4 Feb 1661 which records epitaphs then in the church of Morimond, includes “Regnier de Choiseul [d’Aigremont seigneur] qui trépassa ---“ and “sa femme Jeanne de Grancey dame d’Aigremont” who died “1385 jour de Saint-André” [30 Nov 1385][238].  This assumes that “Regnier” in the epitaph was an error for “Renaud”, an unsurprising mistake considering the resemblance of the old form of the latter (“Regnard”) to “Regnier”.  No record has been found linking Eclance to the Grancey family.  However, Petit names “Catherine de Vienne, femme de Robert de Grancey, et Jeanne d’Esclance” as the two dames d’honneur of Jeanne de Bourgogne, sister of Philippe I “de Rouvres” Duke of Burgundy, in 1360[239].  The name “Jeanne d’Esclance” suggests that this may have been the same person as Renaud’s future wife, and if that is correct the connection of her fellow dame d’honneur with Grancey suggests a family connection between two ladies.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Jeanne was the daughter of Eudes de Grancey Seigneur de Larrey, died 1339[240], which if correct suggests that Jeanne was somewhat older than her husband which sounds unlikely.  The chronology suggests that, if [Jeanne] belonged to the Larrey branch of the Grancey family, she was more likely Eudes’s granddaughter.  m ([1260/70]) RENAUD de Choiseul Seigneur d’Aigremont, son of RENIER [III] de Choiseul Seigneur d’Aigremont & his wife --- ([1345/50]-[20 Jan 1391/23 Jan 1402]).]

4.         [son .  The identity of the parents of Gaucher and Eudes, named below, is not known.  While the involvement of the bishop in the second charter quoted below may suggest a family relationship, neither document specifies their parentage.  The reference to the inheritance from their relative “Bertrand Peregrin” suggests that they were not the sons of Eudes Seigneur de Montagu, whose other sons would presumably have shared in the succession if they had also enjoyed a hereditary right.  One possibility is that Gaucher and Eudes were the sons of another brother of the bishop.  However, this does not provide a completely satisfactory answer to the question as, if correct, it seems unlikely that Bertrand Peregrin was related through their father, while if the relationship was through their mother the involvement of the bishop in the succession is difficult to explain.  Another possibility is therefore that Gaucher and Eudes were not related to the family of the seigneurs de Montagu at all, but took their name from the castle of the seigneurs where they lived.]  m ---.  Two children:

Saulx, now known as Saulx-le-Duc, is located about 15 kilometres north of Dijon, in the present-day French département of Côte-d’Or, arrondissement Dijon, canton Is-sur-Tille.  The bishops of Langres were suzerains of Saulx in the early 12th century: Pope Pascal II confirmed the possession of numerous castles to the bishop of Langres, including “...castrum Sala...”, by bull dated [1105][365]

1.         GUY [IV] de Tilchâtel (-21 Jan 1241)Seigneur de TilchâtelWillaume” granted privileges to the inhabitants of Bourbonne, with the consent of “Guion mon mari seigneur de Tricastel et de Jehan et de Heugue mes fieux”, by charter dated 12 Mar 1204 (O.S.)[497].  The date of this charter may be incorrect: Charles IV King of France ratified two acts by charter dated Apr 1323, one of which was a vidimus confirming the privileges granted to Bourbonne “en 1234 par Willelmine avec l’assentiment de son mari Guion sire de Tilchâtel et de ses fils Hugues et Jean[498].  An epitaph at Tilchâtel Saint-Florent records the death “1240 XII Kal Feb” [presumably O.S.] of “Guillaume [presumably an error for Guy] signor de Trichastel[499]m ([before 1207?]) GUILLEMETTE [de Bourbonne] Dame de Bourbonne [en partie], daughter of [GUY Seigneur de Coublant & his wife Alix [Constance] ---] (-23 Feb 1238).  “Willaume” granted privileges to the inhabitants of Bourbonne, with the consent of “Guion mon mari seigneur de Tricastel et de Jehan et de Heugue mes fieux”, by charter dated 12 Mar 1204 (O.S.) [incorrectly dated? see above][500]Faget de Casteljau dates Guillemette’s marriage to “avant 1207[501].  He does not discuss the basis for his assessment but it is consistent with the suggested birth date of her daughter Beatrix.  The parentage of Guillemette, wife of Guy [IV] Seigneur de Tilchâtel, is uncertain.  Lacordaire says that Guillemette was the sister of “Renier III Seigneur de Bourbonne” (presumably indicating Renier [II], see below)[502], which seems chronologically impossible and fails to explain her connection with Coublant.  Faget de Casteljau, assuming that the 12 Mar 1204 document is incorrectly dated, says that she was the same person as the daughter of Guy de Coublant.  He cites no source confirming this parentage, but says that Guy de Tilchâtel and his wife “avec leurs fils Jean et Hugues” acted “comme seigneur de Coublant” in 1232[503]A third possibility is that Guillemette was an otherwise unrecorded sister of Guy de Coublant who inherited her share in Bourbonne and Coublant after her brothers died.  Guillemette’s shared interest in Bourbonne is confirmed by the charter dated 10 Sep 1320 (vidimus dated 11 Dec 1347) under which a copy of another charter (under which Louis, the future Louis X King of France, affirmed the jurisdiction of “Renardi de Choysello” [Bourbonne] over “Juxiaco ecclesia”) was sent to “Monseignor Renard de Choissuel et ma dame Guillaume de Borbone et les autres seignors qui de lours tennent ensemble tous les hommes et habitants de la ville de Bourbonne[504]The necrology of Cîteaux records the death "VII Kal Mar" of "Wuillelma uxor domini Guidonis Tilecastri"[505].  An epitaph at Tilchâtel Saint-Florent records the death “1238 VII Kal Mar” of “Guillaumette dame de Trichastel[506].  Guy [IV] & his wife had five children: 

a)         JEAN de Tilchâtel (-22 Jan 1275, bur Tilchâtel Saint-Florent)Willaume” granted privileges to the inhabitants of Bourbonne, with the consent of “Guion mon mari seigneur de Tricastel et de Jehan et de Heugue mes fieux”, by charter dated 12 Mar 1204 (O.S.)

The parentage of the following person has not been ascertained.  Presumably she was descended from Guillelme Dame de Bourbonne, wife of Guy [IV] Seigneur de Tilchâtel (see above).  As her descent could be in the female line, her family name is not shown below. 

 

1.         GUILLEMETTE (-[before 1340] or [after 1370]).  By charter dated Apr 1319 “Willaume de Monthureux-sur-Saône écuyer et Guillaume veuve de Jean seigneur de Monthureux-sur-Saône chevalier” notified that the late Jean had objected to the sale of property to Flabémont abbey by “Pierre de Mandres” (dated Apr 1311) but now approved the sale[538].  “Guillaume dame de Monstureul sur Sone et de Bourbonne en partie” donated property to the hospital of Bourbonne Saint-Antoine by charter dated Feb 1320 (O.S.?), sealed by “Guillaume de Monstureul mon frère[539]Faget de Casteljau notes that she was mother of “Guillaume de Monthureux sire de Bourbonne en 1348”, adding that she was “dame de Bourbonne en 1370[540].  The mention of her supposed son Jean as “seigneur de Bourbonne” in 1340 suggests that his mother may have been deceased at the time and that the 1370 reference is to another Guillemette.  Faget de Casteljau records her supposed second marriage, adding that the couple’s son Jean de Mailly “seigneur en parite de Bourbonne en 1340” reached agreement in 1362 with “Richard de Mailly et Simon abbesse de Tart, ses frêre et sœur nés d’un premier mariage de Guy de Mailly avec Simone de Châtillon-en-Varais avec laquelle il vivait en 1309[541]m [firstly] (before Apr 1319) JEAN Seigneur de Monthureux-sur-Saône [Monstreuil], son of --- (-[Apr 1311/Apr 1319]).  [m secondly as his second wife, GUY de Mailly, son of JEAN de Mailly & his wife Marie de Palleau.]
