Chapter 1.    COMTES de GENEVE

 

 

A.      COMTES de GENEVE

 

 

The county of Geneva was located in the mid-eastern part of the Welf kingdom of Burgundy, to the south and west of the town of Geneva.  After the Burgundian kingdom was inherited by Konrad II King of Germany in 1032, temporal jurisdiction over the town of Geneva itself was ceded to the bishop of Geneva, who continued to rule there until 1532 when the bishop was expelled.  The counts continued to rule the surrounding territory (sometimes referred to as the "Genevois").  After the death in 1392 of Pierre Comte de Genève, the county was inherited by his nephew Humbert [VII] Seigneur de Thoire et Villars.  Eudes de Thoire et Villars sold the county of Geneva to Amédée VIII Comte de Savoie in 1401[1]

 

 

1.         MANASSES (-after [894] or [918]).  "Manasseus comes" donated property "in pago Genouense…in villa Mustiniaco" [Montigny, near Evian] to the church of Lausanne, in return for his burial, by charter dated "Non Sep anno III regnante domino nostro Ruodolfo regis" which names "Dominus Hieronymus" as bishop, signed by "Alexandrane que viro suo consensit, Geylendo comite, Turimberto, Adelberto"[2].  It is not clear whether the dating clause refers to Rudolf I King of Burgundy or his successor King Rudolf II.  The year is therefore either [891] or [915].  However, Bishop Jerome was recorded until 892, which suggests that King Rudolf I was the correct ruler.  "Manasses comes" donated property "in pago Genevense in fine Hercolana in villa Mustiniaco" to Lausanne by charter dated "V Kal Mai anno VI regnante domino nostro Rodolpho rege", also naming "domini Hieronimi episcopi", signed by "Alexandrone que viro suo consensit, Warimberto, Gerlendo, Turinberto, Litone, Ratone, Amaldrico"[3].  The same difficulty presents itself relating to the date of this document as with the earlier one.  The location of the property in the donation suggests that Manassés was Comte [de Genève].  m ALEXANDRANE, daughter of --- (-after [894] or [918]).  "Manasseus comes" donated property "in pago Genouense…in villa Mustiniaco" [Mustinie] in return for his burial by charter dated "Non Sep anno III regnante domino nostro Ruodolfo regis", signed by "Alexandrane que viro suo consensit…"[4]

 

 

[Two] possible siblings: 

1.         MANASSES (-after 20 Jun [1015]).  "Adalbertus comes palacii regis…Manasæus comes, Rotbertus nepos eius, Rodulfus advocatus, Amalricus comes et frater Rius Adalgandus, Cono, Leuto, Teodoenus comes, Lanbertus et frater eius, Adalbertus, Willingus, Loslenus, Anselmus pater Anselmi episcopi, Rotbertus frater eius, Vuisbertus filius Amalrici, Witbertus et frater Dodo filii Vuinisi, Adalbertus iudex, Borcardus et fratres eius Vuido et Hugo, filii Teotaldi, Dodo, Turumbertus, Cono et filius eius, Udulricus, Maynerius, Udulricus filius Vuilerii" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[5]"Manasæus comes, Rotbertus nepos eius…" witnessed the charter dated 1002 under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[6].  "Manasseum comitem et uxorem suam Ermengardam" donated property "in pago Gebennensis" to Grenoble cathedral by charter dated 20 Jun [1015][7]Comte [de Genève].  An undated charter, dated to [991/1025], records an agreement between "comes Manasseus et uxor sua Ermengarda" with Humbert Bishop of Grenoble relating to certain properties, signed by "Anianæ filiæ comitis"[8]m ERMENGARDE, daughter of --- (-after 20 Jun [1015]).  "Manasseum comitem et uxorem suam Ermengardam" donated property "in pago Gebennensis" to Grenoble cathedral by charter dated 20 Jun [1015][9].  An undated charter, dated to [991/1025], records an agreement between "comes Manasseus et uxor sua Ermengarda" with Humbert Bishop of Grenoble relating to certain properties, signed by "Anianæ filiæ comitis"[10].  Manassès & his wife had one child: 

a)         ANIANE .  An undated charter, dated to [991/1025], records an agreement between "comes Manasseus et uxor sua Ermengarda" with Humbert Bishop of Grenoble relating to certain properties, signed by "Anianæ filiæ comitis"[11]

2.         [--- .  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1019/20] under which her son "Robertus comes" donated property "in pago Genovense et ini villa de Peloniaco" to the monastery of Pellionex, for the souls of "Episcopi Geroldi qui locum construxit…Hugonis Nepotis, Senioris Roberti…Conradi Patris Roberti…ipsius Roberti…et…filii sui Conradi et…Hugonis clerici parentis Roberti"[12].  Her son is described as "nepos" of Comte Manassès but the term is ambiguous and the precise relationship is not known.  She may even have been the same person as Manassès’s daughter Aniane, although this hypothesis appears inconsistent with her grandson Conrad being the father of Géraud Comte de Genève, as suggested below, as the chronology suggests fewer generations between Comte Manassès and Comte Géraud.  m CONRAD [I] [Conon?], son of --- (-before 1020).  It is possible that Conrad [I] was the same person as Cono, who is named in charters of Rudolf III King of Burgundy dated 1016 and 15 Feb 1018.  Conrad & his wife had one child: 

a)         ROBERT ([960/70]-after 1020).  "…Manasæus comes, Rotbertus nepos eius…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[13].  His birth date range is estimated on the assumption that his son Conrad [II] was born in [980/95], as postulated below.  It is not known whether "nepos" in this document indicates that Robert was the nephew or grandson of Manassès, or even that they were related more remotely.  Comte de Genève.  The Catalogi Abbatum Sancti Eugendi Iurensis names "Rudolfi regis Teutonum et in partibus Galliarum…per Burchardum fratrum suum archiepiscopum et per filium Hugonem Gebennensem episcopum et alium Hugonem Gebennensem episcopum et Rotbertum comitem Gebennensem" with the date 1020[14]"Robertus comes" donated property "in pago Genovense et ini villa de Peloniaco" to the monastery of Pellionex, for the souls of "Episcopi Geroldi qui locum construxit…Hugonis Nepotis, Senioris Roberti…Conradi Patris Roberti…ipsius Roberti…et…filii sui Conradi et…Hugonis clerici parentis Roberti", by charter dated to [1019/20], signed by "Conradi filii Roberti"[15]m ---.  The name of Robert’s wife is not known.  Robert & his wife had one child: 

i)          CONRAD [II] [Conon?] ([980/95]-after 1020).  "Robertus comes" donated property "in pago Genovense et ini villa de Peloniaco" to the monastery of Pellionex, for the souls of "Episcopi Geroldi qui locum construxit…Hugonis Nepotis, Senioris Roberti…Conradi Patris Roberti…ipsius Roberti…et…filii sui Conradi et…Hugonis clerici parentis Roberti", by charter dated to [1019/20], signed by "Conradi filii Roberti"[16].  No further reference has been found to Conrad.  However, the name "Conon" given by Géraud Comte de Genève to his older son suggests a family relationship.  If this is correct, the chronology appears consistent with Conrad [II] being the husband of Bertha and therefore the father of Comte Géraud, in which case Conrad [II] would have been born in [980/995]. 

 

 

Two relatives, the precise family connections are not known: 

1.         HUGUES (-after [1019/20]).  "Robertus comes" donated property "in pago Genovense et ini villa de Peloniaco" to the monastery of Pellionex, for the souls of "Episcopi Geroldi qui locum construxit…Hugonis Nepotis, Senioris Roberti…Conradi Patris Roberti…ipsius Roberti…et…filii sui Conradi et…Hugonis clerici parentis Roberti", by charter dated to [1019/20], signed by "Conradi filii Roberti"[17].  The phrase "Hugonis Nepotis, Senioris Roberti" is difficult to interpret.  As "Patris" is also capitalised in the document, it is likely that "Nepotis" indicates the relationship not a proper name.  It also appears that "Senioris Roberti" should be read together with "Hugonis Nepotis" as if it read "Hugonis nepotis senioris Roberti".  If this is correct, "Roberti" indicates the donor not another Robert.  The question then arises, who was the "senior" of Robert Comte de Genève?  The obvious answer would be Rudolf III King of Burgundy.  However, if this was correct it is more likely that the document would have specified "regis" rather than "senioris".  It is possible that it refers to "Hugo episcopus de Geneva civitate", who countersigned the document, or another ecclesiastical dignitary who was Robert’s suzerain in respect of the property which was donated under the charter. 

 

2.         HUGUES (-after [1019/20]).  "Robertus comes" donated property "in pago Genovense et ini villa de Peloniaco" to the monastery of Pellionex, for the souls of "Episcopi Geroldi qui locum construxit…Hugonis Nepotis, Senioris Roberti…Conradi Patris Roberti…ipsius Roberti…et…filii sui Conradi et…Hugonis clerici parentis Roberti", by charter dated to [1019/20], signed by "Conradi filii Roberti"[18]

 

 

1.         ---, son of --- Carutti identifies the husband of Mathilde as Hugo [IX] Graf von Egisheim, but he cites no primary source on which this hypothesis is based[19]m MATHILDE of Burgundy, daughter of CONRAD I “le Pacifique” King of Burgundy [Welf] & his wife Mathilde de France [Carolingian].  "Rodulfus rex et Mathildis soror eius" are named as children of "Mathilde…filia…Gerberga" in the Continuator of Flodoard, which specifies that Mathilde was mother of Berta who was mother of "Geroldus Genevensis"[20].  One child: 

a)         BERTHA .  "Rodulfus rex et Mathildis soror eius" are named children of "Mathilde…filia…Gerberga" in the Continuator of Flodoard, which specifies that Mathilde was mother of Berta who was mother of "Geroldus Genevensis"[21]m ---.  The name of Bertha's husband is not known.  However, it would not be chronologically impossible if he was Conrad, son of Robert Comte de Genéve, who is shown above.  Bertha & her husband had [two] children: 

i)          GERAUD ([1010/20]-after [1065/80]).  "Rodulfus rex et Mathildis soror eius" are named as children of "Mathilde…filia…Gerberga" in the Continuator of Flodoard, which specifies that Mathilde was mother of Berta who was mother of "Geroldus Genevensis"[22].  As Géraud’s son Conon was probably adult when he donated property, recorded in a charter dated to [1061] (see below), it is unlikely that Géraud was born much later than [1020].  Comte de GenèveGéraud Comte de Genève supported the challenge by Eudes II Comte de Blois to the succession of Emperor Konrad I [II] King of Germany to the kingdom of Burgundy after the death of King Rudolf III in 1033[23]Herimannus records that "Reginolf et Gerolt Burgundiones" submitted to Heinrich III King of Germany "apud Solodurum" [Solothurn] in 1045[24].  "Cono Geraldi comitis filius" donated property to the abbey of Ainay, with the consent of "Geraldi comitis patris sui", by charter dated to [1061][25][m firstly GISELA, daughter of ---.  Guichenon names Gisela as the first wife of Géraud Comte de Genève[26].  The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.]  [A family relationship is indicated between Rudolf von Rheinfelden King of Germany and Géraud Comte de Genève: a continuation of the Annales of St Gallen records that in 1064 “Rudolfus dux” attacked “Burgundiones” and expelled “sui sororini...rebellis Geroldi” from Geneva[27].  The term “sororinus” is rarely encountered in medieval documents.  Ducange provides three possible definitions: “sororis maritus”, “uxoris frater”, and “filiolus sororis[28].  The second of these can be excluded in the context of the Rheinfelden family given our knowledge about the families of Rudolf’s wives, as well as the third given the chronology of the lives of Géraud and Rudolf which suggests that the former was born earlier than the latter.  “Sister’s husband” is therefore the most likely possibility, with which Hlawitschka agrees[29]: if that is correct, Géraud married --- von Rheinfelden, daughter of Kuno Graf von Rheinfelden & his wife ---.  This is consistent with “sororinus” being derived from “soror” and maybe being a variation of “sororius”.  As shown here, Géraud is recorded with two possible wives.  Given the likely dating of his [second] marriage, it is difficult to assess whether, in this scenario, his [first wife] Gisela or his [second] wife Tetberga would have been the daughter of Kuno Graf von Rheinfelden.  It should be noted that Armin Wolf, linking the etymology of “sororinus” with “sobrinus” and by extension “consobrinus”, suggests that Géraud and Rudolf were first cousins, sons of two sisters[30].  However, this interpretation requires reading “sororini” as “consororini”, which stretches the natural interpretation of the passage.  If Géraud’s wife was Rudolf’s sister, presumably she could have been the same person as Kuno’s daughter shown in the document SWABIA NOBILITY (in which case she would be identified as Géraud’s [first wife] Gisela).]  m [secondly] ([1060/70]) as her second husband, TETBERGA, widow of LOUIS Seigneur de Faucigny, daughter of ---.  Her first marriage is proved by the charter dated 4 Sep 1119 by which "Wido…Gebennensis episcopus" donated "ecclesiam de Condominio" for the souls of "…matrie mee Teberge" to Cluny[31].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the undated charter, dated to [1088/99], under which "Aymo comes Gebennensis et filius meus Giroldus" founded the priory of Chamonix, signed by "uterini fratres comitis, Willelmus Fulciniacus et Amedeus…"[32].  Géraud & his [first] wife had [one possible child]: 

(a)       [JEANNE (-[1095]).  Guichenon names Jeanne as the wife of Comte Amédée II referring to various secondary sources[33].  Her origin is not known with certainty, but Guichenon, referring to "Henninges" (no precise citation), suggests "avec…assurance et…probabilité" that she was the daughter of Gerold Comte de Genève and his first wife Gisela ---[34].  From his discussion, it does not appear that this speculation is based on any surviving primary source and it is not known how accurate it might be.  m ([1065/70]) AMEDEE de Savoie, son of ODDON Comte de Chablais & his wife Adelaida di Susa ([1048/50]-26 Jan 1080, bur Saint-Jean de Maurienne).  He succeeded his brother in 1078 as AMEDEE II Comte de Savoie, Marchese di Susa.] 

Géraud & his [first/second] wife had one child:

(b)       CONON (-before 1080).  "Cono Geraldi comitis filius" donated property to the abbey of Ainay, with the consent of "Geraldi comitis patris sui", by charter dated to [1061][35].  The chronology suggests that Conon must have been considerably older than his brother Aimon [I] and therefore was probably born from his father’s [first] marriage. 

Géraud & his [second] wife had one child:

(c)       AIMON [I] ([1065/80]-12 May [1125/28]).  "Patris Geraldi et fratris Cononis, comes Aymo successor" donated property to the church of Leman, at the request of "fratris Burchardi monachi", by undated charter[36]Comte de Genève

-         see below

ii)         [CONON (-1107).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.  Bishop of Maurienne 1088.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[37], he was the possible son of Comte Aimon [I].  However, the chronology is too broad for him to have been the brother of Comte Amédée [I].] 

 

 

AIMON [I] de Genève, son of GERAUD Comte de Genève & his [second] wife Tetberga --- ([1060/65]-12 May [1125/28]).  "Patris Geraldi et fratris Cononis, comes Aymo successor" donated property to the church of Leman, at the request of "fratris Burchardi monachi", by undated charter[38]Comte de Genève.  Vassal of the bishop of Geneva.  Avoué of St Victor, Geneva.  "Aymo comes Gebennensis et filius meus Giroldus" founded the priory of Chamonix by undated charter, dated to [1088/99], signed by "uterini fratres comitis, Willelmus Fulciniacus et Amedeus…"[39].  "Aymo…Genevensium comes" donated property to the monastery of Saint-Eugendi by charter dated 1090, signed by "Itæ uxoris eius, Geraldi filii eius"[40].  "Aymo comes Gebennensis et Amadeus filius eius" renounced rights to certain property in favour of the church of Saint-Martin by undated charter[41]"Aymone…comite" approved the donation by Guy Bishop of Geneva of the church of Saint-Jean de Genève to the monastery of Ainay, near Lyon, by charter dated 1113[42].  A charter dated 1124 records an agreement between Humbert Bishop of Geneva and "Aymone comite"[43].  The necrology of Saint-Claude records the death "IV Id Mai" of "Aymo comes Gebennensis"[44]

m [firstly] ITA, daughter of --- (-after 1090).  "Aymo…Genevensium comes" donated property to the monastery of Saint-Eugendi by charter dated 1090, signed by "Itæ uxoris eius, Geraldi filii eius"[45]

[m secondly ---.  The chronology of this family suggests that Comte Amédée [I] may have been his father’s son by an otherwise unrecorded second marriage.] 

Aimon [I] & his [first] wife had one child: 

1.         GERAUD (-after 1090).  "Aymo comes Gebennensis et filius meus Giroldus" founded the priory of Chamonix by undated charter, dated to [1088/99], signed by "uterini fratres comitis, Willelmus Fulciniacus et Amedeus…"[46].  "Aymo…Genevensium comes" donated property to the monastery of Saint-Eugendi by charter dated 1090, signed by "Itæ uxoris eius, Geraldi filii eius"[47]

a)         PIERRE (-1249).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.   Archdeacon at Langres 1236.  Matthew of Paris records the death in 1249 of "Petrus de Geneure natione Provincialis…" and his marriage[82]m as her first husband, MATILDA de Lacy, daughter of GILBERT de Lacy of Ewyas Lacy, Herefordshire & his wife Isabel --- (-Apr 1303).  A charter dated 19 Feb 1244 relates to the inheritance of "W. de Lacy in…comitatu [Hereford]" by "Matillidi uxori Petri de Geneva, neptem et unicam heredem predicti Waltheri" and "sorori ipsius Matillidis"[83]A charter dated 14 May 1244 restored to "John de Verdun and Margaret his wife, granddaughter and one of the heirs of Walter de Lascy, and to Peter de Geneve and Matilda his wife, granddaughter and another of Walter’s heirs, all the lands in Meath whereof Walter was seised at his death"[84].  "Ebulo de Geneve and Christiana de Mariscis" were granted "a yearly fair at Tristedermot, Ireland to last for 8 days" by charter dated 4 Nov 1248 witnessed by "…Peter de Geneve…"[85].  Matthew of Paris names "Matildam elegantem filiam Walteri de Lasey in Hybernia" as wife of "Petrus de Geneure natione Provincialis…" when recording her husband's death in 1249[86].  She married secondly (1252 before 8 Aug) Geoffroy de Joinville Seigneur de Vaucouleurs.  A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey names “Matildis” as second daughter and heiress of “Gilbertus de Lacy”, son of “Walterus de Lacy”, adding that she married “Galfridi de Geneville”, and also lists their descendants[87].  The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Margeria et Matilda" as the daughters and co-heiresses of "Gilberto de Lacy" and his wife, adding that Matilda married "Gaufrido de Genyvile"[88]Henry III King of England granted "Geoffroy de Joinville et Mahaut de Lacy sa femme" rights in the land of Meath held by "Gautier de Lacy, grand-père de Mahaut" by charter dated 8 Aug 1252[89].  “Gaufridus de Genvyle dominus de Vaucolour miles et Matildis de Lacy filia Gileberti Lacy uxor eius” donated property to Dore Abbey by undated charter, witnessed by “Johanne de Vaucolour milite…[90].  An order dated 16 Jan 1283 records "recognizance by Geofferey de Geneville, Matilda his wife and Peter their eldest son" to "William de Valence" for the commission of lands of “Maurice FitzGerald in Ireland, deceased” and for the marriage of “Gerald son and heir of the said Maurice, under age, and in custody of the said William[91].  "Geoffroy seigner de Vaucouleurs" divided his territories with “Gautier son fils aîné”, with the consent of “Mahaut sa femme et de ses autres enfants...Simon, Nicolas, Pierre, Guillaume et Jeanne comtesse de Salmes”, by charter dated 1294[92].  Pierre & his wife had two children: 

i)          son .  Matthew of Paris records that "Petrus de Geneure natione Provincialis…" was survived by "filium…et filiam" by his wife but does not name either of them[93]

ii)         daughter .  Matthew of Paris records that "Petrus de Geneure natione Provincialis…" was survived by "filium…et filiam" by his wife but does not name either of them[94]

b)         EBLE (-after 12 May 1259).  "Ebulo de Geneve and Christiana de Mariscis" were granted "a yearly fair at Tristedermot, Ireland to last for 8 days" by charter dated 4 Nov 1248 witnessed by "…Peter de Geneve…"[95].  King Henry III granted the marriage of "Christiana de Mariscis, one of the heirs of Walter de Rydelesford" to "Ebulo de Geneve" by charter dated 4 Nov 1248[96]"Ebalus de Gebenn. filius…Humberti quondam comitis Gebenn." ceded his hereditary rights over the county of Geneva to "D. Petro de Sabaudia consanguineo suo" by charter dated 4 May 1259[97]"Ebalus de Gebenn. filius Umberti quondam comitis Gebenn." appointed "D. Petrum de Sabaudia…consanguineum meum" as his heir "in tota hereditate mea paterna", in opposition to "Rodulfum de Gebenn. et fratres suos", by charter dated 12 May 1259 at London, witnessed by "Symonis de Joinvilla Dni. de Jaz…"[98]

c)         ALISIA .  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated to [1210] under which "Turumbertus de Lucingio, domini Fulciacensis dapifer" donated property to the abbey of Sixt, witnessed by "Alisia uxor eiusdem Rodulphi…filie Humberti Gebennensis comitis"[99]m as his second wife, RODOLPHE de Faucigny dit de Lucinge, son of RODOLPHE de Faucigny "l'Allemand" & his wife Emma Aynard de Domène (-1233 or after).

d)         [BEATRIX Charrière suggests that the wife of Ebles [IV] was the daughter of Humbert Comte de Genève[100].  He states that the testament of Guillaume [II] Comte de Genève, dated 9 Nov 1252, names her son Aymon Bishop of Geneva as "consanguineus", but this reference is not in the text of the version of this document which has been consulted[101].  From a chronological point of view, the suggestion seems reasonable, as the birth of Beatrix’s grandson is estimated to [1245].  m EBLES [IV] Seigneur de Grandson, son of EBLES [III] de Grandson & his wife Jordane --- (-after 1235).] 

Guillaume [I] & his second wife had five children: 

2.         AIMON (1174-[1191/95]).  "Willelmus…Gebennensis comes" founded the Chartreuse monstery of Pommiers, with the consent of "Humbertus filius meus…B. quoque uxor mea et filius meus Aymo quinquennis", by charter dated 1179[102]

3.         MARGUERITE [Beatrix] (-8 Apr 1257, bur Abbaye de Hautecombe).  The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Margareta filia domni de Fusceneis de matre Guilelmi, filii Humberti comitis Gebenensis" as wife of "comitis Thome de Sabaudia"[103].  As noted below, Marguerite is also called Beatrix in later sources.  No explanation has been found for these dual names.  The fact that "Beatrix" appears in a seal shows that it was not a transcription error.  "Thomæ comitis et marchionis…et…Nichola [presumably a transcription error] filia comitis Gebennarum" granted privileges to the citizen of Susa by charter dated 25 Feb 1198[104].  The Complete Peerage[105] refers to unspecified "later writers" who evolved an incorrect theory that Thomas I Comte de Maurienne was married firstly to Béatrix and, after her death without issue, secondly to Marguerite, daughter of Guillaume de Faucigny, who was the mother of his children.  The same source confirms that the two names in fact refer to the same person.  A charter dated 1224 records an agreement between "Thomæ com. Sabaud" and the bishop of Sion, witnessed by "ipse Thomas comes, Amedeus primogenitus illius, Comitissa uxor Thomæ, eorum quatuor filii clerici…Willelmus, Thomas, Petrus et Bonifacius"[106]"M. comitissa Maurian. uxor Thomæ comitis Maurianensis et marchionis Italiæ" donated property, with the consent of "Thomas com. Maurianæ et filii mei Amedeus et Aymo", by charter dated Dec 1227[107]"Beatrix uxor comitis Thomæ, Amadeus primogenitus et Aymo filii eius" confirmed the purchase of Chambéry by "Thoma comite" by charter dated 1232, with the seal of "Beatricis comitisse Sabaudie"[108]"Contessa Margarita di Savoia Marchesa in Italia" donated property to "Tomaso suo figlio Conte di Fiandra e d'Hainaut" with the consent of "Conte Amedeo di Savoia suo figlio Primogenito", by charter dated 4 Jan 1244[109].  The Pingonio Chronicon records the death "VI Id Apr" in 1257 of "Domina Beatrix de Gebennis comitissa Sabaudie et domina de Narembors, parens comitum Sabaudie"[110]m ([1196]) THOMAS I Comte de Savoie, son of HUMBERT III Comte de Maurienne et de Savoie & his fourth wife Béatrix de Vienne [Bourgogne-Comté] (Château de Carbonara 1178 after 26 Jun-Moncalieri 1 Mar 1233, bur Saint-Michel de la Cluse). 

4.         AMEDEE de Genève (-17 Dec [1220])Bishop of Maurienne 1213.  "Willelmus comes Gebennensis" swore homage to the archbishop of Tarantasia for the valley of Hauteluce, with the consent of "dominus Amedeus…Maurianensis episcopus frater noster", by charter dated 30 Jul 1220[111].  A charter dated 12 Jan 1270 records donations by Pierre Bishop of Maurienne to found anniversaries for his predecessors "dominus Amedeus Maurianensis episcopus frater quondam…Villelmi comitis Gebennensis…dominus Amedeus Maurianensis episcopus frater quondam domini Villelmi de Miribello"[112]

5.         GUILLAUME [II] (-25 Nov 1252)"Dominus Willelmus Gebenensis…frater Humberti comitis Gebenensis" issued letters of protection to Chamonix by charter dated 13 Mar 1205, naming "pater eius Willelmus comes Gebennensis bone memorie"[113]Comte de Genève

6.         AGATHE (-Finale 1247).  "Dominus Henricus Savonensis Marchio et eius uxor Domina Agatha Comitissa filia quondam Comitis Geben." donated property to "Dominæ Petronillæ Abbatiæ Sanctæ Mariæ de Bitumine" by charter dated 1216[114]m (1216) as his second wife, ENRICO [II] Marchese di Carretto e Savona, son of ENRICO [I] "il Guercio" Marchese di Carretto e Savona & his wife Comitissa --- (Savona 1165-Finale 1231). 

 

 

GUILLAUME [II] de Genève, son of GUILLAUME [I] Comte de Genève & his second wife Béatrix de Faucigny (-25 Nov 1252)"Dominus Willelmus Gebenensis…frater Humberti comitis Gebenensis" issued letters of protection to Chamonix by charter dated 13 Mar 1205, naming "pater eius Willelmus comes Gebennensis bone memorie"[115]Comte de Genève.  The previously quoted document shows that Guillaume did not share power with his brother as count immediately after the death of their father.  "Humbertus et Willelmus fratres et comites Gebenn." granted the prior of Saint-Victor the right to fortify the monastery by charter dated 1220[116]"Willelmus comes Gebennensis" swore homage to the archbishop of Tarantasia for the valley of Hauteluce, with the consent of "dominus Amedeus…Maurianensis episcopus frater noster", by charter dated 30 Jul 1220[117].  "G. comes Gebenn." donated property to the bishopric of Geneva by charter dated 6 Jul 1223, witnessed by "uxoris sue"[118].  Avoué of Chamonix.  "Willelmus comes Gebenn." obtained a loan from the monastery of Saint-Victor by charter dated 16 Feb 1228 which names "Rodulfum filium meum…et dominam comitissam" among the guarantors[119]"Willelmus…comes Gebenn." recognised a loan from the monastery of Saint-Victor, confirmed by "A. comitissa…Rodulfus filius comitis", by charter dated 13 Jan 1231, witnessed by "eiusdem uxor Alaysia comitissa"[120]"Vullielmus comes Gebenn., Ales uxor nostra et Rodulphus filius noster" granted compensation to the bishopric of Geneva for the wrongs which they had committed by charter dated Feb 1236[121]"Vullielmi comitis et Rodulphi eius filii" consented to the sale of property to the bishopric of Geneva by charter dated 1245[122]"Petrus de Sabaudia" and "Guillelmus comes Geben., Rodulphus et Henricus filii dicti comitis" appointed "D.

[m firstly --- de Forez, daughter of GUY [III] Comte de Forez [Albon] & his second wife Adelasia ---.  This possible first marriage of Comte Guillaume [II] is speculative, but it provides the best explanation for the different primary source documents which indicate family relationships between the Roussillon family and the Forez and Genève families.  Dealing firstly with the relationship between the Roussillon/Forez relationship, this is indicated by the documents which are quoted below under this person’s possible daughter "M---", wife of Artaud [IV] Seigneur de Roussillon.  Assuming for the moment that the relationship was through the wife of Artaud [IV], it is reasonable to suppose that it was through an otherwise unrecorded younger daughter of Guy [III] Comte de Forez, based on the following logic.  Firstly, it is not known with certainty whether the Roussillon/Forez connection was through the father or mother of Guillaume de Roussillon (the son of Artaud [IV] and his wife).  However, the charter dated Nov 1262, quoted below, suggests that the relationship was through his mother: if Artaud [IV] himself had been the relative of the Forez family, it seems that the Nov 1262 document would have been unnecessary as Artaud could automatically have transferred his rights to his oldest son by testament.  Artaud’s presence in the document does not necessarily indicate that he held the rights in his own name: they could have been rights held through his wife.  If that is correct, presumably "M---" was still alive in Nov 1262.  If she had been dead, her rights would already have vested in her children, so her husband’s presence in the document would have been unnecessary (unless he was acting in the name of any children who were still minors).  Secondly, the order of beneficiaries in the Jun 1270 testament of Renaud Comte de Forez is presumably significant in determining the nature of the connection with the Roussillon family.  The document provides for bequests, in order, to "consanguineo meo domino Ano domino d’Oliergue…Guillelmo de Rossilione consanguineo meo".  The former is identified as Agnon [VI] Seigneur d’Olliergues, the senior male representative of the descendants of the oldest daughter of Guy [III] Comte de Forez who married Guillaume de Baffie (see the document AUVERGNE for the Baffie and Olliergues families).  It is likely therefore that "Guillelmo de Rossilione consanguineo meo" was in some way junior to Agnon [VI] in his rights to the Forez inheritance.  The marriage of Artaud [IV] Seigneur de Roussillon is dated to [before 1238], which suggests that his wife is unlikely to have been born much later than [1223].  If that date is correct, the chronology of the Olliergues family suggests that it is improbable that she was an otherwise unrecorded younger sister of Agnon [VI]’s mother.  There appear to be two possibilities: either Artaud’s wife was the daughter of an otherwise unrecorded younger daughter of Guy [III] Comte de Forez, or she was the granddaughter of a younger sibling of Comte Guy [III].  The former is the most likely possibility: all the other beneficiaries under the Jun 1270 testament of Renaud Comte de Forez were descendants of his grandfather, and it seems unlikely that Comte Renaud would have considered it necessary to provide in his testament for another family representative who was descended from his great-grandfather.  In conclusion, until further information comes to light, if the relationship between the Roussillon and Forez families was through Artaud [IV] de Roussillon’s wife, it is likely that she was the daughter of an otherwise unrecorded younger daughter of Guy [III] Comte de Forez.  Turning to the Roussillon/Genève family connection, this is suggested by an undated charter under which "Amédée de Genève Evesque de Die" (identified as the son of Comte Guillaume [II]) is called "oncle d’Amédée de Roussillon" (who was a younger son of Artaud [IV] Seigneur de Roussillon)[126].  The testament of "Thomas de Sabaudia primogenitus…domini Thomæ de Sabaudia comitis", dated 14 May 1282, which names "consanguineum meum R. patrem dominum Aymarum archiepiscopum Lugdunensem" (the latter identified as another younger son of Artaud [IV] Seigneur de Roussillon) also indicates a connection as the relationship with the Savoie family was presumably through the comtes de Genéve[127].  Vachez, in an article dealing with the Roussillon family, approaches a conclusion when he states that Artaud [IV]’s wife was "Marie de Genève, fille de Guillaume Comte de Genève et de Marie ou Alix de la Tour"[128].  However, his explanation is contradictory and confusing.  He asserts firstly that the marriage of Artaud [IV] with "Marie" was childless (nullifying completely his explanation for the relationship which is stated in the undated charter) and secondly that Artaud’s children were born from a supposed second marriage with "Artaude de Forez, fille de Guy IV comte de Forez", presumably in an attempt to explain the presence of Guillaume de Roussillon in the Jun 1270 testament of Renaud Comte de Forez.  The major problem with identifying Guillaume [II] Comte de Genève as the father of "M---" is the number of children attributed to Comte Guillaume and his wife which makes it difficult to explain why "M---" and her descendants should have been singled out in relation to the Forez inheritance.  However, this difficulty would be resolved if the daughter of Guy [III] Comte de Forez was the first wife of Comte Guillaume, and the mother of a single daughter, her husband marrying again after she died.] 

m [secondly] ([before 1215]) ALIX, daughter of --- (-after 5 Oct 1256).  "Willelmus…comes Gebenn." recognised a loan from the monastery of Saint-Victor, confirmed by "A. comitissa…Rodulfus filius comitis", by charter dated 13 Jan 1231, witnessed by "eiusdem uxor Alaysia comitissa"[129]"Vullielmus comes Gebenn., Ales uxor nostra et Rodulphus filius noster" granted compensation to the bishopric of Geneva for the wrongs which they had committed by charter dated Feb 1236[130]The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified.  Guichenon states that she was "filia…Alberti III domini de Turre Pini et Mariæ de Turre-Averniæ" adding that she received "in dotem castra Cornillonis et de Bornant" as shown by her testament dated 5 Oct 1256[131].  If this affiliation was correct, she would have been Alix de la Tour du Pin, daughter of Albert [II] de la Tour du Pin & his wife Marie d'Auvergne.  However, Bert Kamp has pointed out that there is no information available which confirms the basis for Guichenon’s statement and that the marriage of her son Rodolphe, with his first cousin (if Alix had been the daughter of Albert [II]), makes this affiliation improbable giving the difficulties in obtaining the necessary papal dispensation at the time[132].  This difficulty would be resolved if Rodolphe was in fact the son of Guillaume [II]’s supposed first marriage.  A further line of enquiry to pursue is tracing the ownership of the dower properties which are mentioned by Guichenon: it is unclear why he would have referred to these at all in the sentence concerning Alix’s parentage unless they could be traced back to the Tour du Pin family.  The date of her marriage is suggested by the estimated birth date of her son Rodolphe (see below).  "Villelmus comes Gebennensis" confirmed the foundation of the Chartreuse monastery of Pomiers by "Villelmo patre meo", with the consent of "Alesia comitissa uxor mea et Rodulphus filius noster primogenitus cum filiis nostris…Amedeo…episcopi Diensi, Aymone cantore Gebennensi, Henrico, Roberto canonico Viennensi, Villelmo, Guigone", for the soul of "Humberti fratris nostri quondam comitis Gebennensis", by charter dated 1252[133]The testament of "Willelmus comes Gebenn." is dated 9 Nov 1252 and names "primogenitum nostrum Rodulfum…filio nostro Amedeo…Dien. Ep…A. comitissa Geben."[134]"Amedeus…Dien. Ep. filius quondam D. Guillelmi bone memorie comitis Geben." delegated the execution of his father’s testament to "fratrem nostrum Rodulphum primogenitum", with the consent of "fratrum nostrorum…Henrici layci, Roberti canonici Vien., Guillelmi et Guigonis clericorum filiorum antedicti D. comitis Geben.", by charter dated 8 Jan 1253, witnessed by "Ay. dno. Fucign…Dne. Alaysie…matris nostre comitisse Gebenn…religiose Dne. Agathe sororis nostre Abbatisse de Monte…"[135].  The testament of "A. comitissa Gebenn." is dated 5 Oct 1256 and bequeathes "castrum de Curnillon et…totum de Bornans…" to "filio nostro Rodolpho comiti Gebenn."[136]

Guillaume [II] & his [first wife had one child]: 

1.         [M--- ([before 1223]-[Nov 1262/Jun 1270]).  The wife of Artaud [IV] Seigneur de Roussillon is referred to in the charter dated May 1251 which records the donation to the priory of Saint-Sauveur-en-Rue of "molendinum de Givret juxta las Moleyres" and the appointment of "dominum Artaudum et Vuilielmum filium suum de Rossilion et Guigoni Pagani dominum d’Argentau" as guarantors, and was witnessed by "domina M. comitissa uxor prædicti domini Artaudi de Rossilion"[137].  A charter dated 7 Aug 1274 records the confirmation of the donation of "molendinum de Givret juxta las Moleyras" and names "Artaudi domini de Rossilione, Gulielmi de Rossilione, et…dominæ M. comitissæ uxoris prædicti domini Artaudi de Rossilione et Guigonis Pagani"[138].  Vachez states that Artaud [IV]’s wife was "Marie"[139], although he cites no primary source which indicates that "M" in the source quoted above represents an abbreviation for "Maria".  Her possible family origin provides an intriguing puzzle.  A close family connection between the Roussillon family and the Forez family is indicated by the testament of "Raynaudus comes Forensis et dominus Bellijoci", dated Jun 1270, which names "Guidonem consanguinem meum dominum de Tyerno" as his heir in substitution and states that, if he inherits, he should provide for "domino Guidoni de Tyerno consanguineo meo canonicus LugdunensisHugoni de Tyerno consanguineo meo fratri eiusdem canonici Guidonis…consanguineo meo domino Ano domino d’Oliergue…Guillelmo de Rossilione consanguineo meo" (the last-named being identified as the son of Artaud [IV] Seigneur de Roussillon)[140].  The Roussillon/Forez relationship is confirmed by the charter dated Nov 1262, under which "Artaud sire de Roussillon…Aymar, Amédée, Alyse et Beatrix ses enfants" donated their rights "sur la succession de feu Guy comte de Forez" to "Guillaume fils dudit Artaud"[141][142].  The possible relationship between the Roussillon and Genève families is also explained fully above under "M---"‘s mother.  If all the speculations are correct, as explored further above, Artaud’s wife would be the daughter of Guillaume [II] Comte de Genève] & his [first] wife --- de Forez.  It should be emphasised that this is speculative, and that other alternatives are possible, particularly if the Roussillon/Forez relationship was through Artaud himself and not his wife.  One last point concerns the title "comitissa" accorded to Artaud’s wife in the 1251 and 1274 sources which are quoted above.  There are two possible explanations.  Firstly, the word could suggest that "M---" was the widow of an unidentified "comes" when she married Artaud, and retained the title as a matter of courtesy after her [second] marriage.  It is unlikely that she would have held the title in her own right as heiress to a "comes", as there is no record of the title being transmitted to her son.  Secondly, if Artaud’s wife was related to the Genève family, "comitissa" could have been a corruption of "Contesson/Comtessone", a family nickname which was used by "Beatrix dite Comtessone" another possible daughter of Guillaume [II] Comte de Genève who is named below.  [m firstly --- Comte, son of ---.]  m [secondly] ([before 1238]) ARTAUD [IV] Seigneur de Roussillon, son of ARTAUD [III] Seigneur de Roussillon & his wife Alix de Glâne ([1200/05]-after 1270).]

i)          YOLANDE .  It is supposed that Yolande was betrothed to Béraud [II] not Béraud [I], assuming that the primary sources which record the known wife of the latter in 1358, 1365 and 1371 are accurately reported, and that the marriage did not take place for some reason.  This is the solution adopted by Père Anselme, who records 1348 as the date of the betrothal without indicating any primary source on which this date is based[233]Betrothed ([1348], contract 6 Jul 1353) BERAUD [II] Dauphin de Clermont, son of BERAUD [I] Dauphin Comte de Clermont & his wife Marie de Villemur (-17 Jan 1400).  He succeeded his father in 1356 as Comte de Clermont.  m (1360 after 17 Jan) as his second wife, AIMERY [VI] Vicomte de Narbonne, son of AMAURY [V] Vicomte de Narbonne & his [first/second wife] [Catherine de Poitiers-Valentinois/Tiburge d'Usson] (-1388)

B.      COMTES des EQUESTRES

 

 

The county of Nyon ("Neodunum") in Vaud was otherwise known as "pagus Equestricus".  The charter quoted below suggests that it may have included the town of Geneva in the early 10th century.  Gingins-la-Sarra suggests that the county of Geneva was divided, after the death of Comte Manassès [I] at the end of the 9th century, into the county of Geneva proper (comitatus Genenensis) and the county of Equestria (comté des Equestres, comitatus Equestricus) which lay on the northern bank of the river Rhône and included the territory of the later seigneurs de Gex[237].  He suggests that the new county lay south of the river Aubonne, west of lake Geneva and the county of Vaud, and east of the second chain of the Jura mountains, the county of Seoding in the diocese of Besançon, and the canton of Nantua (comitatus Varesinus, based on the château de Varey) in the diocese of Lyon, and corresponded with the ecclesiastical deaconate of Outre-Rhône (decanatus Ultra Rhodani), later called the deaconate of Aubonne or Gex[238]

 

 

1.         AIRBERT (-before 20 Feb [911], bur Satigny).  "Eldegardis" donated property for the soul of "iugalis mei quondam bone recordationis Ayrberti comitis" to the monastery of Saint-Pierre de Satigny "in pago Equestrico" by charter dated "X Kal Mar anno xxiii regnante donno nostro Rodulfo rege"[239].  This dating clause would indicate 934 if it refers to Rudolf II King of Burgundy, but 911 if it relates to King Rudolf I.   It appears from the documents cited below that Anselm was Comte des Equestres in 934, which would suggest that the earlier date is correct, although this is not beyond all doubt.  Gingins-la-Sarra suggests that 912 is the correct date[240]m EDELGARDE, daughter of --- (-after 20 Feb [911]).  "Eldegardis" donated property for the soul of "iugalis mei quondam bone recordationis Ayrberti comitis" to the monastery of Saint-Pierre de Satigny "in pago Equestrico" by charter dated 20 Feb 934[241]

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         ANSELM [I] (-[961/62]).  "Bertagia" challenged an inheritance "in pago Equestrico" by charter dated 18 Jan 926, which names "Turumbertum comitem, et Anselmum comitem de pago Equestrico atque Hugonem conte palatio" comprising the court, Anselm being described in another part of the document as "comes in vico Sancti Gervasi"[242], which probably refers to a suburb of the town of Geneva.  "Hugo comes palatinus, Wido comes, Anselmus comes, Engelseacus comes…" were present at the election of Libon Bishop of Lausanne in 928[243]"Anselm comes et Udalrich comes Anselmi frater" witnessed a charter of Conrad I King of Burgundy dated 28 Mar 943[244].  "Chuonradus…rex" made donations to the abbey of Cluny by charter dated 27 Jun 943, subscribed by "Hugo comes, Odolricus Comes palatii, Anricus filius Ludovici, Anselmus comes, Odolricus comes Anselmi frater, Odo comes, Leutoldus comes, Humbertus"[245].  "Magnerius episcopus [Bishop of Lausanne] et advocatus suus Anselmus comes" are named in the charter of the bishop dated 3 Feb 961[246]

2.         ODALRIC (-after 27 Jun 943).  "Anselm comes et Udalrich comes Anselmi frater" witnessed a charter of Conrad I King of Burgundy dated 28 Mar 943[247].  "Chuonradus…rex" made donations to the abbey of Cluny by charter dated 27 Jun 943, subscribed by "Hugo comes, Odolricus Comes palatii, Anricus filius Ludovici, Anselmus comes, Odolricus comes Anselmi frater, Odo comes, Leutoldus comes, Humbertus"[248]

 

 

[Three] siblings: 

1.         ANSELM [II] (-before [1019]).  "Otto…imperator augustus" donated property "in pago Bibligouue in comitatu Anshelmi in villa Chupinga" to the bishopric of Chur in exchange for property "predii…Adalberto filio Liutuuardi…in pago Suerzza in comitatu Gotefridi in villa Alemuntinga" by charter dated 22 Apr 966[249]"…Anselmus episcopus Augustensis…Anselmus pater Anselmi episcopi, Rotbertus frater eius…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[250]A charter dated Jan 1006 records that "Vuillelmus de monte Ioveto" donated property to "S. Egidio" of which one was "in valle Mugnana", in which "Anselmus" held three parts and "Uldricus comes" held the fourth, and the other "in loco Intola" in which "Uldiricus comes" held two parts[251]m ALDIUD, daughter of ---.  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 19 Aug [1019] of "Burchardus sancta Viennensis archiepiscopus et Udolricus frater meus et advocatus meus" granted property "in pago Genevensi…in villa Marischa…a circio Lemani lacus" made "pro remedio animarum…genitore nostro Anselmo sive pro genetrice nostra Aaldui"[252].  A series of documents, including this charter, shows that Aldiud had been the mistress of Conrad I King of Burgundy, probably before her marriage to Anselm, and that she gave birth to Burchard Archbishop of Lyon by the king.  This is established as follows.  Firstly, the Chronicon Hugonis names the king’s son, the archbishop of Lyon, as "Burchardus, Rodulfi regis frater, Conradi ex concubina filius"[253].  Secondly,  Burchard’s mother’s name is confirmed as Aldiud by a charter dated 14 Feb 1005, which records that "Burchardum Lugdunensem archiepiscopum" donated property "in loco Oponlongis infra comitatum Ottingen" which he had "ex patre matris suæ Aldiud quod rex Chuonradus ei præbuit" to Anselm bishop of Aosta[254].  Thirdly, the name of the father of Anselm Bishop of Aosta is confirmed as Anselm in the charter of Rudolf III King of Burgundy for Romainmotier dated [1001/02], which was witnessed by "…Anselmus episcopus Augustensis…Anselmus pater Anselmi episcopi…"[255].  Fourthly, a charter dated 1 Nov 1002, noted by Rivaz in his compiled index of Burgundian charters, confirms that Anselm Bishop of Aosta and Burchard Archbishop of Lyon were brothers: "Burchard archévêque de Lyon et abbé de Saint-Maurice" [Aldiud’s illegitimate son] granted property "dans les comtés de Valais et de Vaud" to "Gauslin", with the consent of "Anselme son frère évêque d'Aoste et prévôt de ladite abbaye"[256].  Fifthly, Anselm and Aldiud were also parents of Burchard Archbishop of Vienne and Udalrich his avocatus, as shown by the charter dated 19 Aug [1019] referred to above[257].  The conclusion therefore is that the only way in which Burchard Archbishop of Lyon could have been the brother of the three brothers Anselm, Burchard and Odalric is if they shared the same mother, who gave birth to them by different fathers.  Aldiud’s relationship with the earliest counts of Savoy is indicated by Rodolfus Glauber who describes Burchard, son of Count Humbert "aux Blanches Mains", as nepos of Aldiud's illegitimate son[258].  This relationship is explained by Count Humbert's wife being the legitimate daughter of Anselm and Aldiud, as shown below.  The Chronicon Hugonis specifies that the king’s son Burchard was appointed archbishop (dated to 978) when still a child[259].  This presumably dates Aldiud’s relationship to the King Conrad to [965/70], which is probably before she married Anselm.  Anselm [II] & his wife had four children: 

a)         ODALRIC [Ulrich] (-after 19 Aug [1019]).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[260], Aldiud and her husband were grandparents of Anselm Bishop of Aosta, Bouchard Archbishop of Vienne and Udalrich, advocatus of the church of Vienne.  This is a mistake as the charters quoted below indicate that the couple were the parents, not grandparents, of the brothers.  A charter dated Jan 1006 records that "Vuillelmus de monte Ioveto" donated property to "S. Egidio" of which one was "in valle Mugnana", in which "Anselmus" held three parts and "Uldricus comes" held the fourth, and the other "in loco Intola" in which "Uldiricus comes" held two parts[261].  His parentage is indicated by the charter dated 19 Aug [1019] of "Burchardus sancta Viennensis archiepiscopus et Udolricus frater meus et advocatus meus" which granted property "in pago Genevensi…in villa Marischa…a circio Lemani lacus" made "pro remedio animarum…genitore nostro Anselmo sive pro genetrice nostra Aaldui"[262].  It appears that Odalric can be identified as "avunculo meo comite Oudolrico…in villam…Ursaria" from whom "Aimo, Sedun…episcopus", identified as the son of Humbert Comte de Maurienne and Odalric’s sister Auxilia, stated in a charter dated 12 Jun 1052 that he inherited property which Bishop Aimon then donated to the church of Sion "per manum advocatis mei comitis Oudalrici"[263].  The probable relationship between the family and this last named "advocatis mei comitis Oudalrici" (who is probably identified as Ulrich [I] Graf von Lenzburg) is discussed below. 

b)         ANSELM [III] (-after 1026).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[264], Aldiud and her husband were grandparents of Anselm Bishop of Aosta, Bouchard Archbishop of Vienne and Udalrich, advocatus of the church of Vienne.  This is a mistake as the charters quoted below indicate that the couple were the parents, not grandparents, of the brothers.  Bishop of Aosta .  "…Anselmus episcopus Augustensis…Anselmus pater Anselmi episcopi…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[265].  Rivaz, in his compiled index of Burgundian charters, notes a charter dated 1 Nov 1002 under which "Burchard archévêque de Lyon et abbé de Saint-Maurice" [illegitimate son of Conrad II King of Burgundy by Aldiud] granted property "dans les comtés de Valais et de Vaud" to "Gauslin", with the consent of "Anselme son frère évêque d'Aoste et prévôt de ladite abbaye"[266]A charter dated 14 Feb 1005 records that "Burchardum Lugdunensem archiepiscopum" [illegitimate son of King Conrad] donated property "in loco Oponlongis infra comitatum Ottingen" which he had "ex patre matris suæ Aldiud quod rex Chuonradus ei præbuit", through "advocatorem suum Vuidonem", to "Anselmum Augustanum episcopum" in exchange for "terram S. Mauritii in valle Augustana"[267]Anselm Bishop of Aosta donated property "in valle…Augustana et in loco…Coriolo" to the abbey of Saint-Maurice by charter "die dominica VIII Kal Nov" (25 Oct, 996, 1002, 1013, 1019 or 1024), witnessed by "Burcardus archiepiscopus…"[268]

c)         BOUCHARD (-after 19 Aug [1019]).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[269], Aldiud and her husband were grandparents of Anselm Bishop of Aosta, Bouchard Archbishop of Vienne and Udalrich, advocatus of the church of Vienne.  This is a mistake as the charters quoted below indicate that the couple were the parents, not grandparents, of the brothers.  Archbishop of Vienne .  Rudolf III King of Burgundy donated property to Vienne Saint-Maurice, at the request of "Irmengarda regina, Burkardo Lugdunensi archiepiscopo fratre suo, nec non Burchardo Viennensi archiepiscopo", by charter dated 1 Aug 1011[270].  A charter dated 19 Aug [1019] of "Burchardus sancta Viennensis archiepiscopus et Udolricus frater meus et advocatus meus" granted property "in pago Genevensi…in villa Marischa…a circio Lemani lacus" made "pro remedio animarum…genitore nostro Anselmo sive pro genetrice nostra Aaldui"[271]

d)         AUXILIA "Amedeus filius Uberti comitis et Adaelgida uxor mea" donated "ecclesia S. Mauricii…in pago…Maltacena" to the priory of Bourget by charter dated 22 Oct 1030, signed by "Uberti comitis, Anciliæ uxoris eius, Amedei comitis, Adilæ uxoris eius…Rodulphi regis, reginæ Ermengardis, Odonis, Antelmi"[272]The parentage of Auxilia is deduced from her son Burchard being described by Rodolfus Glaber as nepos of Burchard Archbishop of Lyon[273], who was the illegitimate son of Conrad I King of Burgundy and his mistress Aldiud.  Aldiud was the wife of Anselm, this couple presumably being Auxilia’s parents.  Her parentage is also suggested by the charter dated 12 Jun 1052 under which her son "Aimo, Sedun…episcopus" donated property, inherited from "avunculo meo comite Oudolrico…in villam…Ursaria", to the church of Sion "per manum advocatis mei comitis Oudalrici"[274]Szabolcs de Vajay[275] suggests that Count Humbert had two wives: firstly "---, sister of Graf Ulrich [von Lenzburg]" and secondly "Auxilia, relative of Saint Odilon de Mercœur abbé de Cluny".  Europäische Stammtafeln[276] shows only one wife "Auxilia von Lenzburg", in an amalgam of these two proposed wives.  None of the sources so far consulted in the preparation of the present document suggest that Humbert had two wives.  Until more information comes to light, the simpler solution has been adopted in this document.  The primary source which indicates Auxilia's relationship with the Mercœur family (see AQUITAINE NOBILITY) has not yet been identified.  m ([995/1000]) HUMBERT, son of --- ([970/75]-[1 Jul 1047/51], bur Saint-Jean de Maurienne).  He was installed in 1043 as HUMBERT I "blancis manibus/of the White Hands" Comte de Maurienne, and later as Comte de Chablais. 

2.         ROBERT (-after [1001/02]).  "…Anselmus episcopus Augustensis…Anselmus pater Anselmi episcopi, Rotbertus frater eius…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[277].  

3.         [--- .  It would not be surprising if there was a family relationship between the Burgundian nobleman Anselm [II] and the family of the Grafen von Lenzburg.  The indicators of this relationship are as follows.  Firstly, "Aimo, Sedun…episcopus", who is identified as Aimon son of Anselm [II]’s daughter Auxilia, donated property which he had inherited from "avunculo meo comite Oudolrico" to the church of Sion, by charter dated 12 Jun 1052[278].  "Avunculo meo comite Oudolrico" can probably be identified with Odalric/Ulrich, son of Anselm [II], who is shown above.  Secondly, the same charter records that Bishop Aimon acted in this donation "per manum advocatis mei comitis Oudalrici".  Bishop Aimon also acted through "Odvolrici eiusdem ecclesie aduocati" in a charter dated 23 Dec 1043[279].  The "advocatus" of bishops and other ecclesiastical dignataries can often be identified as family members.  Thirdly, "Odalricus comes de Lenceburc" donated "allodium quod pater meus et mater in monte…Novum castrum emerunt" to the church of Sion by charter dated to [1036/54][280], which shows that the Lenzburg family had a connection with the bishopric of Sion.  It is therefore suggested that "Odalricus comes de Lenceburc" who is named in the [1036/54] charter and "advocatis mei comitis Oudalrici", named in the 23 Dec 1043 and 12 Jun 1052 documents, were the same person and can be identified as Ulrich [II] Graf von Lenzburg.  As Odalric/Ulrich, son of Anselm [II], is not recorded as having children, it is likely that the relationship with the Lenzburg family was through the female line.  The chronology suggests that this might have been through the mother of Graf Ulrich [II] who could have been a sister of Anselm [II].  m --- [Lenzburg].] 

 

 

1.         AIMON [Anno] (-after [983]).  "Anno comes…Adalbertus comes" subscribed a charter, dated to [982/83], under which Conrad I King of Burgundy confirmed an exchange of properties at Gimel, comté des Equestres, and in the county of Vaud by the abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune[281]

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         AMALRIC [I] (-after 1002).  "Marinus" donated property "in comitatu Æquestrico in villa…Balgedelco", for the soul of "senioris mei Amalrici", by charter dated 4 Mar [996][282].  "…Amalricus comes et frater eius Adalgandus…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[283]m ---.  Amalric & his wife had [two children]: 

a)         ROBERT (-after 1002).  "…Rotbertus frater eius Vuisbertus filius Amalrici…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[284].  Gingins-la-Sarra suggests that Robert, son of Comte Amalric [I], was ancestor of the Seigneurs de Mont[285].] 

[-       SEIGNEURS de MONT.]     

b)         VUITBERT .  "…Rotbertus frater eius Vuisbertus filius Amalrici…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[286].] 

2.         ADALGAUD (-after 1002).  "…Amalricus comes et frater eius Adalgandus…" witnessed the charter dated [1001/02] under which Rudolf III King of Burgundy confirmed a donation to Romainmotier[287]
