Chapter 2.    VAUD

 

 

The ecclesiastical diocese of Lausanne (pagus Ultrajuranus) included three distinct counties during the rule of the Rudolfian kings of Burgundy, the county of Vaud (comitatus Waldensis), the county of Avenches or Vully (comitatus Vuisliancensis) and the county of Bargen (comitatus Bargensis)[329]Hisely sketches the territorial limits of the early county of Vaud and suggests that it included all the territory north of Lake Geneva as far as Lake Neuchâtel, west of the river Sarine (Saane), including the "Hochgau" or Ogo in which the county of Gruyère later evolved[330].  "Comitatu Waldense" is first named in a charter of Emperor Karl III dated 885[331]The cartulary of Notre-Dame de Lausanne records that Henri Bishop of Lausanne, who was ordained in 985 and was bishop for 25 years, acquired "comitatum Waldense" from "domino imperatore Henrico" [Emperor Heinrich II][332]

 

The county of Valais appears to have been controlled by the bishop of Sion.  The only separate family of counts so far identified in Valais were the comtes de Granges, who appear briefly in the second half of the 12th century.  This chapter also sets out the family of the Seigneurs de la Tour et de Châtillon who were prominent nobles in Sion.

A.      SEIGNEURS d’AUBONNE

 

 

The castle of Aubonne was situated about 19 kilometres west of Lausanne. in what is today the canton of Vaud in Switzerland, in the valley of the Aubonne river.  The family of the seigneurs d’Aubonne first emerges from the records in the mid-11th century.  The charters quoted below show that, from the early 13th century at least, the seigneurie d’Aubonne was divided between the male members of each succeeding generation of the family, who are all referred to as "condomini/co-seigneurs".  Guerry co-Seigneur d’Aubonne, head of the senior branch of the family, sold his interests in Aubonne to Pierre Comte de Savoie in 1259.  Beatrix, daughter of Comte Pierre, transferred this interest to her maternal aunt Beatrix de Faucigny, mother of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Thoire et Villars.  It eventually passed in the early 14th century to Agnes, daughter of Humbert [III], who was the wife of Guillaume Alamandi.  The seigneurie d’Aubonne was the subject of continual disputes between the holders of the various competing sub-divided interests.  In the late 14th century, the interests of the "Alamandi" seigneurs were consolidated in the hands of the comtes de Gruyère, while the younger branch of the original Aubonne family, descended from Jacques [II] Seigneur d’Aubonne, younger brother of co-Seigneur Guerry, continued to hold their share.  The friction between the two groups persisted well into the 15th century. 

 

 

Two brothers, parents not known: 

1.         DODON d’Aubonne .  "Turumbertus" donated property "in pago Equestrico in villa Balgeello" to Romainmotier "per manu advocati meo Dooni", undated but dated by Charrière to first half 11th century, possibly late 10th century[419]An undated charter, dated to [1049/1109], records that Romainmotier granted land "in villa Brucinis…[et] in villa Germaniaco…helemosinam Turumberti fratris Dodoni de Albona"[420]

Jacques & his wife had six children: 

1.         JACQUES [III] d’Aubonne ([1212/22]-[Jun 1274/Oct 1277]).  "Jacobus dominus de Albona" donated property to Bonmont, with the consent of "domina Beatrix uxore mea et filiis meis Jacobo et Johanne", by charter dated 1235[487].  Co-Seigneur d’Aubonne"Beatrix uxor quondam domini Jacobi de Albona…et Jacobus filius meus, inmo filii mei et filie mee" by charter dated 1236[488].  "Beatrix relicta Iacobi militis domini de Albona" donated property to Bonmont, with the consent of "Iacobi et Iohannis filiorum suorum et omnium filiarum suarum" for the soul of "Jacobi mariti sui", by charter dated 1 Jul 1237[489]"Beatrix uxor quondam domini Jacobi de Albona et Jacobus filius meus" protected the rights of property donated to Oujon by charter dated Jul 1238[490].  The wording of these two charters suggests that Jacques [III] was still a minor when they were written.  "Jacobus dom. Albonæ, Jacobi filius" granted "quidquid ipse et filius suus habent in castro et burgo Albonæ" to Pierre de Savoie, with the consent of "Beatrice matre eius", by charter dated Mar 1242[491].  "Beatrix quondam uxor domini Jacobi de Albona et duo filii mei Jacobus et Johannes et quatuor filie mee…Jordana, Alays, Leoneta et Clementia" donated revenue to Oujon, with "dominum Guerricum dominum Albone et heredes eius" acting as guarantor, by charter dated May 1244[492].  "Iacobi condomini de Albona domicelli, domini mei, Marguerete uxoris eius, Aymonis et Iohannis filiorum suorum" consented to a sale of property by "Iohannes de Sancto-Symphoriano" to "Nicholao dicto Magnyn burgensi de Albona", by charter dated Jun 1274[493].  The date of his death is set by a charter dated Oct 1277 which records a sale by "Vuillielmus de Lavignie mistralis de Albona ex parte quondam Iacobi condomini de Albona" of the mestralie d’Aubonne to "domino P. episcopo Sydunensi, tutori Iohannini quondam filii Iacobi, condomini de Albona"[494]m firstly ---.  The name of Jacques’s first wife is not known.  However, the date of birth of his oldest son indicates that there must have been a first marriage.  m secondly MARGUERITE [d’Oron, daughter of --- d’Oron & his wife ---].  "Iacobi condomini de Albona domicelli, domini mei, Marguerete uxoris eius, Aymonis et Iohannis filiorum suorum" consented to a sale of property by "Iohannes de Sancto-Symphoriano" to "Nicholao dicto Magnyn burgensi de Albona", by charter dated Jun 1274[495]Her family origin is suggested by the charter dated Sep 1285 under which her son "Johannes filius quondam Jacobi condomini de Albona" acknowledged a debt to "domini P…episcopi Sedunensis avunculi mei"[496]Jacques [III] & his first wife had one child: 

a)         son (before Mar 1242-).  His existence is confirmed by the charter dated Mar 1242 under which his father "Jacobus dom. Albonæ, Jacobi filius" granted "quidquid ipse et filius suus habent in castro et burgo Albonæ" to Pierre de Savoie[497].  His absence from the charter dated Jun 1274 (see below) suggests that he had died before this date, unless he was the same person as Jacques [III]’s son Aimon

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

b)         AIMON d’Aubonne (before [1248/56]-[Sep 1274/Oct 1277]).  "Iacobi condomini de Albona domicelli, domini mei, Marguerete uxoris eius, Aymonis et Iohannis filiorum suorum" consented to a sale of property by "Iohannes de Sancto-Symphoriano" to "Nicholao dicto Magnyn burgensi de Albona", by charter dated Jun 1274[498]"Aymo, filius Iacobi, condomini de Albona" acted as guarantor, with the agreement of "dicti Iacobi patris mei", for the sale of property made with the consent of "Iacobi de Alamant domicelli" by charter dated Sep 1274[499].  Aimon’s fulfilling this role presumably indicates that he had passed the age of majority by that date.  This suggests that he may have been considerably older than his brother Jean [I] and therefore possibly born from his father’s first marriage.  The age of majority in Vaud at that time has not been ascertained, although the charter dated Mar 1317, quoted below, suggests that it may have been 25 years.  It is possible that Aimon was the same person as Jacques [III]’s unnamed son who is mentioned in 1242.  It appears from the charter dated 1 Aug 1308 quoted below that Aimon was co-Seigneur d’Aubonne, maybe during the lifetime of his father, although no document has been found which refers directly to him with this title.  Aimon presumably predeceased his father as he is not named in the charter dated Oct 1277 quoted above.  Aimon had one illegitimate child by an unknown mistress: 

i)          GUILLAUME (-after 1327).  A charter dated 1 Aug 1308 records a sale of property to "Willielmo alumpno quondam…domini Aymonis quondam condomini de Albona"[500]. 

Jacques [III] & his second wife had two children: 

c)         JEAN [I] d’Aubonne ([1259/67]-before Mar 1305).  "Iacobi condomini de Albona domicelli, domini mei, Marguerete uxoris eius, Aymonis et Iohannis filiorum suorum" consented to a sale of property by "Iohannes de Sancto-Symphoriano" to "Nicholao dicto Magnyn burgensi de Albona", by charter dated Jun 1274[501].  Co-Seigneur d’Aubonne

5.         LEONETE d’Aubonne (-after May 1244).  "Beatrix quondam uxor domini Jacobi de Albona et duo filii mei Jacobus et Johannes et quatuor filie mee…Jordana, Alays, Leoneta et Clementia" donated revenue to Oujon, with "dominum Guerricum dominum Albone et heredes eius" acting as guarantor, by charter dated May 1244[508]

6.         CLEMENCE d’Aubonne (-after May 1244).  "Beatrix quondam uxor domini Jacobi de Albona et duo filii mei Jacobus et Johannes et quatuor filie mee…Jordana, Alays, Leoneta et Clementia" donated revenue to Oujon, with "dominum Guerricum dominum Albone et heredes eius" acting as guarantor, by charter dated May 1244[509]

 

 

1.         LOUIS d’Aubonne (-after 20 Oct 1301).  The parentage of Louis is not known.  Charrière suggests that he may have been the unnamed son of Jacques [III] Seigneur d’Aubonne, referred to in 1242 (see above).  However, as noted above, there is an indication that Jacques [III]’s oldest son died young.  Co-Seigneur d’Aubonne

 

 

JEAN [I] d’Aubonne, son of JACQUES [III] co-Seigneur d’Aubonne & his second wife Marguerite [d’Oron] ([1259/67]-before Mar 1305).  "Iacobi condomini de Albona domicelli, domini mei, Marguerete uxoris eius, Aymonis et Iohannis filiorum suorum" consented to a sale of property by "Iohannes de Sancto-Symphoriano" to "Nicholao dicto Magnyn burgensi de Albona", by charter dated Jun 1274[510].  Co-Seigneur d’Aubonne"Vuillielmus de Lavignie mistralis de Albona ex parte quondam Iacobi condomini de Albona" sold the mestralie d’Aubonne to "domino P. episcopo Sydunensi, tutori Iohannini quondam filii Iacobi, condomini de Albona" by charter dated Oct 1277[511].  "Johannes filius quondam Jacobi condomini de Albona" acknowledged a debt to "domini P…episcopi Sedunensis avunculi mei" by charter dated Sep 1285, adding that his uncle had been his guardian "tamquam minor annis"[512].  The wording of this document suggests that Jean [I] had recently arrived at the age of majority. 

m BINFA, daughter of --- (-after 18 May 1350).  "Binfa relicta domini Iohannis condomini de Albona et Iohannes filius eius" made a declaration relating to damage to the property of the chapter of Lausanne by charter dated 9 Apr 1313[513]"Binfa Bynfaz condomina de Albona et Iohannes eius filius minor viginti quinque annis major…quatuordecim" reached agreement with the chapter of Geneva about vines by charter dated Mar 1317[514].  A charter dated 24 Feb 1319 records an agreement between "Guilelmum Alamandi et Agnetem de Villariis eius uxorem" and "dominam Bynfa et Iohannem eius filium condominos de Albona" relating to the establishment of a new town at Aubonne[515]

Jean [I] & his wife had seven children: 

1.         JEAN [II] d’Aubonne ([1295/1303]-after 18 Sep 1369).  Co-Seigneur d’Aubonne"Binfa relicta domini Iohannis condomini de Albona et Iohannes filius eius" made a declaration relating to damage to the property of the chapter of Lausanne by charter dated 9 Apr 1313[516]"Binfa Bynfaz condomina de Albona et Iohannes eius filius minor viginti quinque annis major…quatuordecim" reached agreement with the chapter of Geneva about vines by charter dated Mar 1317[517].  A charter dated 24 Feb 1319 records an agreement between "Guilelmum Alamandi et Agnetem de Villariis eius uxorem" and "dominam Bynfa et Iohannem eius filium condominos de Albona" relating to the establishment of a new town at Aubonne[518].  The subservient position of Jean [II] in this charter suggests that he was still under age at that date.  "Dominus Iohannes condominus de Albona miles" confirmed two legacies by "Margueretam ipsius militus relictam" and by "Eleenam relictam Iohannis de Lucingio de Dussillier, sororemque dicti militis" in favour of the abbey of Bonmont by charter dated 21 Mar 1344[519] The testament of "Domini Iohannis condomini Albone militis" is dated 18 May 1350, appoints "Humbertum filium suum" as heir to property which the testator received from "domina Margareta prima uxore sua filiaque quondam…domini Girardi de Orons militis", and appoints "ipsum puerum masculum" as his universal heir if born to "domina Iohanneta uxor sua filiaque…Iohannis domini de Aniuer, nunc pregnans"[520] "Ysabella de Scabellione domina Novicastri relicta…domini Ludovici de Sabaudia domini Vaudi" granted rights in her lands to "consanguineorum nostrorum Guilliermi de Grandissono et Ioannis dominorum Albone" by charter dated 13 Jun 1352[521].  The family relationship between Jean [II] d’Aubonne and Isabelle de Chalon Dame de Vaud has not yet been ascertained.  A codicil to the testament of "Domini Iohannis condomini Albone militis" is dated 18 Sep 1369 and names "Anthonium et Iacobum fratres, filios suos"[522] m firstly MARGUERITE d’Oron, daughter of GIRARD [III] Seigneur d’Oron & his wife --- (-[12 Jun 1342/21 Mar 1344]).  "Dominus Iohannes condominus de Albona miles" confirmed two legacies by "Margueretam ipsius militis relictam" and by "Eleenam relictam Iohannis de Lucingio de Dussillier, sororemque dicti militis" in favour of the abbey of Bonmont by charter dated 21 Mar 1344[523].  Despite the use of the word "relictam" in this charter, it is assumed from other documentation that Marguerite predeceased her husband and not the reverse.  Her parentage is confirmed by the testament of her husband "Domini Iohannis condomini Albone militis", dated 18 May 1350, which appoints "Humbertum filium suum" as heir to property which the testator received from "domina Margareta prima uxore sua filiaque quondam…domini Girardi de Orons militis"[524] m secondly JOHANNETTE, daughter of JEAN Seigneur d’Anniviers & his wife --- (-after 11 Mar 1377).  Her parentage is confirmed by the testament of her husband "Domini Iohannis condomini Albone militis", dated 18 May 1350, which appoints "ipsum puerum masculum" as his universal heir if born to "domina Iohanneta uxor sua filiaque…Iohannis domini de Aniuer, nunc pregnans"[525].  Jean [II] & his first and second wives had children:

B.      SEIGNEURS d’AUBONNE (ALAMANDI)

 

 

As noted above, the Alamandi family acquired in the early 14th century the interests of the older branch of the original family of the seigneurs d’Aubonne, which had been sold in 1259 by Guerry co-Seigneur d’Aubonne to Pierre Comte de Savoie.  The seigneurie d’Aubonne was the subject of continual disputes between the holders of the various competing sub-divided interests.  In the late 14th century, the interests of the "Alamandi" seigneurs were consolidated in the hands of the comtes de Gruyère, while the younger branch of the original Aubonne family, descended from Jacques [II] Seigneur d’Aubonne, younger brother of co-Seigneur Guerry, continued to hold their share.  The friction between the two groups persisted well into the 15th century. 

 

1.         EUDES Alamandi (-after 1209).   "Guigo Alamandi et Odo Alamandi pater huius..." witnessed the charter dated 1209 under which Beatrix Duchess of Burgundy granted privileges to Grenoble Saint-Robert[528].  The unusual name order, the father appearing after the son, suggests that the former had renounced his property rights in favour of the latter.  m ---.  The name of Eudes’s wife has not been identified.  Eudes & his wife had one child:

F.      COMTES de GRANGES

 

 

The village of Granges was located on the left bank of the river Rhône, upstream of Sion, and was the site of three castles[639].  Comtes de Granges are recorded in the 11th and 12th centuries.  However, the information relating to these individuals is insufficient to reconstruct their family with any confidence.  Grémaud suggests that Ulric Comte de Granges, whose donation to Sion is recorded in the 11th century as shown below, was the same person as Ulrich [II] Graf von Lenzburg (see the document SWABIAN NOBILITY), who is recorded with connections in Valais.  However, it is uncertain whether this co-identity can be correct as the deaths of the two persons are recorded on different dates in the necrology of Sion and the necrology of Granges.  After the 12th century, the lords of Granges are no longer recorded with the comital title.  It should be noted that a younger branch of the family of the sires de la Tour is recorded in the mid-13th century as co-seigneurs de Granges.  It is not known whether they acquired their share in the lordship by inheritance or purchase. 

 

 

1.         ULRIC (-16 Nov ----).  Comte de Granges.  An undated charter which records the property of the church of Sion, dated to the 11th century, records the donation "ante oppidum Conteiz" by "comitissa Grangensis…et…filius eius Uldricus comes"[640].  "Girardus Alingiensis, Rodulphus de Fulciniaco, Uldricus comes, Anselmus, Willelmus, Amedeus filius eiusdem Girardi" witnessed the charter dated to [1094] under which "Humbertus comes et marchio" donated property to the abbey of Aulps ["in pago Gebennensi in valle…Alpis"][641].  The necrology of Granges records the death "XVI Kal Dec" of "Uldricus comes"[642]

 

2.         --- .  Comte [de Granges].  m TIETZA, daughter of --- (-6 Sep ----).  The necrology of Sion records the death "V Non Sep" of "Tieze comitisse" (the editor suggests 1052 as the year, but does not explain the basis for his statement)[643]

 

3.         GIROLD (-9 Jun ----).  Comte [de Granges].  The necrology of Sion records the death "V Id Jun" of "Giroldi comitis" and the donation for his soul by "Willermeta uxor eius"[644]m GUILLELME, daughter of ---.  The necrology of Sion records the death "V Id Jun" of "Giroldi comitis" and the donation for his soul by "Willermeta uxor eius"[645].   

 

4.         ARENBOR .  [Comte] de Grangesm ---.  The name of Arenbor’s wife is not known.  Arenbor & his wife had two children: 

a)         ULRIC .  A charter dated to the end-12th century, which lists the revenues of the chapter of Sion, includes the donation by "Vldricus et Petrus filii Arenbor. Comes de Granges" at Heis[646]

b)         PIERRE .  A charter dated to the end-12th century, which lists the revenues of the chapter of Sion, includes the donation by "Vldricus et Petrus filii Arenbor. Comes de Granges" at Heis[647]

 

5.         OTHON (-after 1181).  Comte de Granges.  "Petrus de Martiniaco et Turumbertus de Nouila et Otto comes de Grangis et Ludouicus de Druna et Ermeradus ac Johannes Ulboldus" witnessed the charter dated to [1162/73] under which the bishop of Sion confirmed the donation of the church of Louèche to the bishopric of Sion[648].  "Willelmus de Turre, Humbertus, Oto comes, Tunubertus de Nouila, Johannes Uboz, Eimerradus, Lodoicus, Foco" witnessed the charter dated 1181 which records an agreement between the bishop of Sion and the canons of Sion relating to "hominibus de Louina" {Lowinen}[649].  The placing of Othon’s name in the middle of the subscription lists of both charters suggests that he was not the dominant nobleman in Valais at the time. 

 

 

1.         --- .  The common use of the name "Granges", and the absence of any further reference to Othon Comte de Granges after 1181, suggests that he may have been the husband of Agnes and the father of her two sons.  If this hypothesis is correct, the suggested low level of his position in the local nobility is confirmed by the fact that his comital title did not survive him.  m AGNES, daughter of --- (-[before 1189]).  Her marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1182/89] under which her sons "Lodoicus de Granges et Willermus frater eius" donated revenue from "allodio suo apud Ayent in villa Alba et in villa…Bluvignosch" {Arbaz and Blouvignoux} to the abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune, for the soul of "matre sua Agnes"[650].  A charter dated 1189 records that "Agnes de Granges" donated revenue to the abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Lodoici et Willermi", and that later "prefatus Lodoicus" confirmed the donation after the death of "suo fratre Willermo"[651]Two children: 

a)         LOUIS de Granges (-31 Mar ----).  "…Lodoicus de Granges…" witnessed the charter of Humbert III Count of Savoy dated 1179[652]"Lodoicus de Granges et Willermus frater eius" donated revenue from "allodio suo apud Ayent in villa Alba et in villa…Bluvignosch" {Arbaz and Blouvignoux} to the abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune, for the soul of "matre sua Agnes", by charter dated to [1182/89][653].  A charter dated 1189 records that "Agnes de Granges" donated revenue to the abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Lodoici et Willermi", and that later "prefatus Lodoicus" confirmed the donation after the death of "suo fratre Willermo"[654].  The necrology of Granges records the death "II Kal Apr" of "domini Ludoici"[655]

b)         GUILLAUME de Granges (-[1189]).  "Lodoicus de Granges et Willermus frater eius" donated revenue from "allodio suo apud Ayent in villa Alba et in villa…Bluvignosch" {Arbaz and Blouvignoux} to the abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune, for the soul of "matre sua Agnes", by charter dated to [1182/89][656].  His death is confirmed by the charter dated 1189 which records that "Agnes de Granges" donated revenue to the abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Lodoici et Willermi", and that later "prefatus Lodoicus" confirmed the donation after the death of "suo fratre Willermo"[657]

 

 

Three siblings, parents not known: 

1.         BOSON de Granges (-2 Jul 1243).  Deacon of Sion.  "Boso de Granges, decanus Sedun." donated property to the chapter of Sion by charter dated 1228, which names "G. fratri meo"[658].  Bishop of Sion 1237.  "Dnus Boso…ecclesie Sedunensis electus" donated property to Sion, with the consent of "Berthe sororis sue", by charter dated 10 Dec 1237[659].  The necrology of Sion records the death "VI Non Jul" in 1243 of "Boso bone memorie Sedun. episcopus" and his donation of "ecclesia de Morgi"[660].  The approximate year of his death is confirmed by the charter dated 22 Jul 1243 which records an agreement relating to the inheritance of "dni Bosonis bone memorie Sedun. episcopi" between "dnam Bertam de Ayent et Ludouicum et Petrum filios suos et Vuilliermetam filiam suam" and "dnum Vulliermum vicedominum de Aniuesio et Agnetem uxorem suam et heredes suos"[661]

2.         G--- de Granges (-[1228/22 Jul 1243]).  "Boso de Granges, decanus Sedun." donated property to the chapter of Sion by charter dated 1228, which names "G. fratri meo"[662]

3.         BERTHE (-after 22 Jul 1243).  "Dnus Boso…ecclesie Sedunensis electus" donated property to Sion, with the consent of "Berthe sororis sue", by charter dated 10 Dec 1237[663].  A charter dated 22 Jul 1243 records an agreement relating to the inheritance of "dni Bosonis bone memorie Sedun. episcopi" between "dnam Bertam de Ayent et Ludouicum et Petrum filios suos et Vuilliermetam filiam suam" and "dnum Vulliermum vicedominum de Aniuesio et Agnetem uxorem suam et heredes suos"[664]m --- de Ayent, son of --- (-before 22 Jul 1243). 

 

 

 

D.      SEIGNEURS de MONT

 

 

The repetition of the names Robert and Amalric suggest that the following three small family sub-groups, all of whom are named in the first half of the 11th century in Vaud, were closely related. 

 

 

1.         ROBERT, son of AMALRIC [I] Comte [des Equestres] & his wife ---] (-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[665].  Gingins-la-Sarra suggests that Robert, son of Comte Amalric [I], was ancestor of the Seigneurs de Mont[666]

Three siblings, the name Amalric indicating a family relationship with the preceding family sub-groups: 

1.         --- .  m ---.  Two children: 

a)         CONON de Mont (-before 30 Sep 1052).  "Morandus, Geroldus, Dodo, Chono de Mont et Rodbertus" witnessed the charter dated to [1040/50] under which "Ornadus qui et Paganus et uxor mea…Ancila" promised property to Romainmotier[671]

b)         PONCE (-after 30 Sep 1052).  "Poncius" donated property to Romainmotier, for the soul of "fratris mei Cononis" at the request of "avunculi mei Amaldrici quondam Geneuensis prepositi", by charter dated 30 Sep 1052, signed by "Dalmacii consobrini eius…"[672]

Chapter 4.    COMTES de GRUYERE

 

 

A.      COMTES de GRUYERE

 

 

The history of the county of Gruyère was studied in detail by Hisely in the mid-19th century[835].  He also published a collection of sources relating to the county[836].  This mainly consists of documents extracted from the archives of the Swiss cantons of Bern, Fribourg and Vaud, and includes charters from the monasteries of Hautcrêt and Hauterive.  However, it is incomplete as other sources are referred to, and some quoted, in Hisely’s Histoire.  The county of Gruyèr e was located north of Lake Geneva in the eastern part of the kingdom of B urgundy, in the territory of the present-day Swiss canton of Fribourg.  Hisely suggests that the area was originally a pagus minor in the early county of Vaud, whose territorial limits he sketches as all the territory north of Lake Geneva as far as Lake Neuchâtel, west of the river Sarine (Saane)[837].  The "Hochgau" or Ogo was located in the central part of this area, centred on the castle of Œx, around which the county of Gruyère evolved.  The opportunity for Gruyère to evolve as a separate county probably resulted from the imperial grant of the county of Vaud to the bishop of Lausanne in 1010.  It is not known whether the whole of the territory described by Hisely was the subject of the grant, but, even if it was, it is possible that the bishop would have been unable to exercise temporal jurisdiction throughout the area.  Whatever the truth, references to the county of Gruyère emerge from the primary sources in the early 11th century.  It is suspected that the comtes de Gruyère were vassals either of the comtes de Genève or the bishops of Lausanne until the early 13th century.  At that time, the documentation reveals the growing regional influence of the comtes de Savoie.  By charter dated 9 May 1244 "Rodulphus comes de Grueria" granted "castrum nostrum de Grueria" to "domino Petro de Sabaudia", who granted it as a fief to "Willo filio nostro"[838], although it is unclear whether the arrangement was made by Pierre de Savoie only in his capacity as Seigneur de Faucigny (which he held de iure uxoris).  The enfeoffment of the count’s younger son in this document, in place of the count himself and his older son, is curious, but can be explained if a competing vassal relationship with the counts of Geneva or the bishop of Lausanne had not been legally terminated at the time.  Whatever the true position, a charter dated 18 Apr 1289, under which Amédée V Comte de Savoie invested "dominus P comes Gruerie et Rodulphus eius nepos, filius quondam Petri de Grueria domicelli" with "castrum de Grueria, castrum de Montsalvans, castrum dou Vanel, castrum Doyz" as vassals[839], shows that the vassalship under Savoy was well established by that date. 

 

 

1.         TUREMBERT (-after 18 Apr 930).  According to Hisely, Turembert was "Comte d’Ogo, soit de Gruyère"[840].  "Manasseus comes" donated property "in pago Genouense…in villa Mustiniaco" [Mustinie] in return for his burial by charter dated 2 Sep [891/92] or [915/16], signed by "Alexandrane que viro suo consensit, Geylendo comite, Turimberto, Adelberto"[841].  "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", signed by "Alexandrone que viro suo consensit, Warimberto, Gerlendo, Turinberto, Litone, Ratone, Amaldrico"[842].  "Dominum…comitem Turimbertum" exchanged property in Bulle and Riaz, as well as serfs, with Boson Bishop of Lausanne by charter dated 11 Nov "die martis III Id Nov anno XIII regnante domno nostro Ruodolfo rege", signed by "Turimberti et uxoris sue Auane…"[843].  Hisely dates this charter to 900, meaning that Rodulf I King of Burgundy was the king referred to in the dating clause[844].  Hisely identifies the properties in question as located in the county of "Ogo" ["Hochgau"], the name by which the territory of Gruyère was previously known, and suggests that Turembert was therefore Comte de Gruyère[845].  "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[846].  A charter dated 18 Apr 930 records that the monastery of Saint-Maurice d’Agane granted property "in pago Vualdense…et in pago Ausicense…[et] in pago Caputlacense" [Vaud, Ogo, and Chablais], donated by "Ado bone memorie et Tornigus", to "Turimberte et uxor tua Envina…et filie vestre…Adeyleydis" for life[847]m AVANE, daughter of --- (-after 18 Apr 930).  "Dominum…comitem Turimbertum" exchanged property and serfs with Boson Bishop of Lausanne by charter dated 11 Nov "anno XIII regnante domno nostro Ruodolfo rege", signed by "Turimberti et uxoris sue Auane…"[848].  A charter dated 18 Apr 930 records that the monastery of Saint-Maurice d’Agane granted property "in pago Vualdense…et in pago Ausicense…[et] in pago Caputlacense" [Vaud, Ogo, and Chablais], donated by "Ado bone memorie et Tornigus", to "Turimberte et uxor tua Envina…et filie vestre…Adeyleydis" for life[849].  Turembert & his wife had one child: 

a)         ADELAIDE (-after 18 Apr 930).  A charter dated 18 Apr 930 records that the monastery of Saint-Maurice d’Agane granted property "in pago Vualdense…et in pago Ausicense…[et] in pago Caputlacense" [Vaud, Ogo, and Chablais], donated by "Ado bone memorie et Tornigus", to "Turimberte et uxor tua Envina…et filie vestre…Adeyleydis" for life[850]

"cum…comes Viennensi qui etiam comes Solodorensis et dominus Salinensis" and were all buried "in prioratu Cluniacensi…in insula…in lacu de Nirvez"[1113]The dating of the event is slightly different in one of the Continuations of Sigebert which records that "Guilelmum comitem Sedunensium" [Guillaume III Comte Palatin de Bourgogne] was murdered "1127 III Kal Mar" in the church of Payerne "at the instigation of demons"[1114]m ---.  The name of Pierre’s wife is not known.  However, it is possible that she was --- von Oltingen, daughter of KUNO Graf von Oltingen & his wife --- de Luxembourg.  The reasoning is as follows.  A charter dated 1170, which records the division of revenue for Hauterive abbey, records that "Petrus dominus de Glane" had "quatuor filias…una…Emma…", adding that Emma was "mater Vldrici domini de Arconciei"[1115].  It is assumed that this document means that Emma was heiress of Arconciel, which she brought to the family of the comtes de Neuchâtel.  Heinrich IV King of Germany granted “castrum Arunciacum...in pago...Ochtlanden in comitatu Tirensi et villam Faverni et Salam” {Arconciel/Ergenzach in Oechtland in the county of Tirens} to “Cononi comiti” by charter dated 1082[1116].  “Cononi comiti” has not definitely been identified as Kuno Graf von Oltingen.  However, if this co-identity is correct, it is reasonable to suppose that Kuno granted Arconciel to his daughter on her marriage.  It is interesting to note that Pierre Seigneur de Glâne was killed during the same incident with Guillaume III Comte de Palatin de Bourgogne who, if this suggested marriage is correct, would have been the great-nephew of Pierre’s wife, the son of her presumably older sister Regina.  Pierre & his wife had five children: 

a)         GUILLAUME de Glâne (-Hauterive Abbey 7 Feb 1142, bur Hauterive).  A charter dated 1139 records the foundation of Hauterive abbey by Guy Bishop of Lausanne and donations "in manu Dominus Wilhelmus de Glana", donations made with the consent of "Amadeus comes Gebennensis" and witnessed by "Willelmus de Glana, Torinus et Joran de Grueria, Radulphus de Ponte"[1117].  The Fundatio monasterii…de Altaripa records its foundation "V Kal Mar" in 1137 by "Guillelmum de Glana ex…comitum Viennensium familia oriundum"[1118]Guillaume became a monk at Hauterive, where he died[1119]The Fundatio monasterii…de Altaripa records the death "III Id Feb" in 1142 of "dominus Guillelmus de Glana fundator huius domus" and his burial in the abbey[1120]

b)         EMMA de Glâne (-after 1146).  A charter dated 1170, which records the division of revenue for Hauterive abbey, records that "Petrus dominus de Glane" had "quatuor filias…una…Emma…alia Ita…Iuliana alia soror…Agnes quarta soror", adding that Emma was "mater Vldrici domini de Arconciei"[1121]The necrology of Hauterive commemorates "dominarum quatuor sororum domini Guillelmi de Glana fundatoris nostri, Emmæ uxoris Rodolphi de Novo castro domini de Arconcie, Agnetis uxoris comitis de Ogo et Grueria, Julianæ matris domini de Montsalvens et Ithæ quæ in Tharentasia maritum ignotæ stirpis accepit"[1122].  Her marriage and family origin are also indicated by a charter dated 1162 under which "Uldricus de Novo castro" donated property to Hauterive abbey "in translatione Domini Guillelmi de Glana avunculi sui"[1123]. Rodolphus dominus dArcuncie” donated all he possessed “in Alpibus” to Hauterive, with the consent of “uxore sua Emma et filio Uldrico”, by charter dated 1146[1124] m RODOLPHE [II] Seigneur [de Neuchâtel], son of ULRIC [II] Comte de Neuchâtel & his wife --- (-1164)

c)         ITA de Glâne .  A charter dated 1170, which records the division of revenue for Hauterive abbey, records that "Petrus dominus de Glane" had "quatuor filias…una…Emma…alia Ita…Iuliana alia soror…Agnes quarta soror", adding that Ita married "in Tarrenthesiam"[1125]The necrology of Hauterive commemorates "dominarum quatuor sororum domini Guillelmi de Glana fundatoris nostri, Emmæ uxoris Rodolphi de Novo castro domini de Arconcie, Agnetis uxoris comitis de Ogo et Grueria, Julianæ matris domini de Montsalvens et Ithæ quæ in Tharentasia maritum ignotæ stirpis accepit"[1126]m ---. 

d)         JULIANE de Glâne (-after 1180).  A charter dated 1170, which records the division of revenue for Hauterive abbey, records that "Petrus dominus de Glane" had "quatuor filias…una…Emma…alia Ita…Iuliana alia soror…Agnes quarta soror", adding that Juliane was mother of "Petro filio suo"[1127]The necrology of Hauterive commemorates "dominarum quatuor sororum domini Guillelmi de Glana fundatoris nostri, Emmæ uxoris Rodolphi de Novo castro domini de Arconcie, Agnetis uxoris comitis de Ogo et Grueria, Julianæ matris domini de Montsalvens et Ithæ quæ in Tharentasia maritum ignotæ stirpis accepit"[1128].  A charter dated 1162 confirms the foundation of the abbey of Hauterive and records donations by "Petrus de Gruiera et Juliana mater eius apud Foz castrum", with the consent of "Agnes soror eius"[1129].  "Juliana et Petrus filius eius et Petronella uxor Petri" donated property to Hauterive by charter dated 1165[1130].  "Juliana et Petrus filius eius de Montsalvan" donated property to Hauterive abbey by charter dated 1169[1131].  "Petrus de Montsalvant et Juliana mater eius" donated property to Hauterive abbey by charter dated 1172[1132].  "Iuliana" donated property to Hauterive abbey, and "Petrus de Montsilvan et Iuliana mater eius" confirmed other donations, by charter dated 1180[1133]m [GUILLAUME de Gruyère Seigneur de Montsalvan], son of --- (-before 1162). 

e)         AGNES de Glâne (-21 Apr or 26 Sep, after [1197]).  A charter dated 1170, which records the division of revenue for Hauterive abbey, records that "Petrus dominus de Glane" had "quatuor filias…una…Emma…alia Ita…Iuliana alia soror…Agnes quarta soror", adding that Agnes married "comitis de Ogo"[1134]The necrology of Hauterive commemorates "dominarum quatuor sororum domini Guillelmi de Glana fundatoris nostri, Emmæ uxoris Rodolphi de Novo castro domini de Arconcie, Agnetis uxoris comitis de Ogo et Grueria, Julianæ matris domini de Montsalvens et Ithæ quæ in Tharentasia maritum ignotæ stirpis accepit"[1135].  A charter dated 1162 confirms the foundation of the abbey of Hauterive and records donations by "Radulphus comes de Grueria in Arenario de Pratellis" with the consent of "Agnes uxor…et filii eius Wilhelmus, Petrus Amadeus filiaque Agatha"[1136].  "Rodulphus comes de Ogo et Agnes uxor eius" donated property to Hauterive, with the consent of "primogenitus eorum", by charter dated 1172, witnessed by "Petrus filius…"[1137].  "Agnes comitissa de Grueria" donated property to Hauterive, for the souls of "Rodulphi mariti sui atque filii sui Wilelmi", with the consent of "Petrus et Rodulphus filii eius", by charter dated to [1170][1138].  "Petrus comes de Grueria et Radulphus frater eius" relinquished rights to revenue from Onnens in favour of the property of Hauterive abbey, with the consent of "Agnes comitissa, Clementia uxor Petri comitis, Gertrudit uxor Rodulphi fratris Petri comitis", by charter dated to [1197][1139].  The necrology of Humilimont records the death "XI Kal Mai" of "Agnetis comitisse de Grueria"[1140].  The necrology of Gruyère Saint-Théodule records the death "VI Kal Oct" of "Agnes comitissa de Grueria filia Petri domini de Glanna"[1141]m RODOLPHE [I] Comte de Gruyère, son of --- (-before [1197]). 

2.         GUILLAUME de Glâne (-killed Payerne Abbey 9 Feb or 1 Mar 1127, bur Cluniac priory Nirves).  The Fundatio monasterii…de Altaripa records that "pater [domini Guillelmi de Glana] Petrus et frater suus Guillelmus de Glana" were killed "V Id Feb…apud Paterniacum" in 1126 "cum…comes Viennensi qui etiam comes Solodorensis et dominus Salinensis" and were all buried "in prioratu Cluniacensi…in insula…in lacu de Nirvez"[1142]The dating of the event is slightly different in one of the Continuations of Sigebert which records that "Guilelmum comitem Sedunensium" [Guillaume III Comte Palatin de Bourgogne] was murdered "1127 III Kal Mar" in the church of Payerne "at the instigation of demons"[1143].  A charter dated 1170, which records the division of revenue for Hauterive abbey, records that "Petrus dominus de Glane" had "quatuor filias…una…Emma…alia Ita…Iuliana alia soror…Agnes quarta soror", and names "Guilelmi…avunculi sui de Glana"[1144]

 

 

 

C.      SEIGNEURS de MONTSALVAN

 

 

According to Hisely, the seigneurs de Montsalvan were a younger branch of the family of the comtes de Gruyère but he does not explain the basis for his statement nor give details of the precise connection[1145].  In one of the charters quoted below, dated 1162, Pierre de Monsalvan is named "Petrus de Gruiera" which suggests that Hisely may be correct.  It would fit from a chronological point of view if Guillaume Seigneur de Montsalvan was a younger son of Guillaume [II] Comte de Gruyère. 

 

 

1.         [GUILLAUME de Gruyère] (-before 1162)Seigneur de MontsalvanHisely names the husband of Juliane but does not cite the primary source on which this information is based[1146]m JULIANE de Glâne, daughter of PIERRE Seigneur de Glâne & his wife --- (-after 1180).  A charter dated 1170, which records the division of revenue for Hauterive abbey, records that "Petrus dominus de Glane" had "quatuor filias…una…Emma…alia Ita…Iuliana alia soror…Agnes quarta soror", adding that Juliane was mother of "Petro filio suo"[1147]The necrology of Hauterive commemorates "dominarum quatuor sororum domini Guillelmi de Glana fundatoris nostri, Emmæ uxoris Rodolphi de Novo castro domini de Arconcie, Agnetis uxoris comitis de Ogo et Grueria, Julianæ matris domini de Montsalvens et Ithæ quæ in Tharentasia maritum ignotæ stirpis accepit"[1148].  A charter dated 1162 confirms the foundation of the abbey of Hauterive and records donations by "Petrus de Gruiera et Juliana mater eius apud Foz castrum", with the consent of "Agnes soror eius"[1149].  "Juliana et Petrus filius eius et Petronella uxor Petri" donated property to Hauterive by charter dated 1165[1150].  "Juliana et Petrus filius eius de Montsalvan" donated property to Hauterive abbey by charter dated 1169[1151].  "Petrus de Montsalvant et Juliana mater eius" donated property to Hauterive abbey by charter dated 1172[1152].  "Iuliana" donated property to Hauterive abbey, and "Petrus de Montsilvan et Iuliana mater eius" confirmed other donations, by charter dated 1180[1153].  [Guillaume] & his wife had two children: 

a)         PIERRE de Montsalvan (-[1180/81]).  A charter dated 1162 confirms the foundation of the abbey of Hauterive and records donations by "Petrus de Gruiera et Juliana mater eius apud Foz castrum"[1154].  The Fundatio monasterii…de Altaripa records that "Rudolpho comite de Grueria et Petro domino Montsalvant fratre dicti Rudolphi, Uldrico domino de Arconciel, et Uldrico comite de Novo-Castro nepotibus…comitis de Glana ex sororibus" consented to donations by "Guillelmum de Glana ex…comitum Viennensium familia oriundum" to the abbey of Hauterive[1155], although Pierre de Montsalvan was the cousin not brother of Rodolphe Comte de Gruyère.  "Juliana et Petrus filius eius et Petronella uxor Petri" donated property to Hauterive by charter dated 1165[1156].  "Juliana et Petrus filius eius de Montsalvan" donated property to Hauterive abbey by charter dated 1169[1157].  "Petrus de Montsalvant et Juliana mater eius" donated property to Hauterive abbey by charter dated 1172[1158].  "Petrus de Monte Silvano, Nantelmus Rufus miles eiusdem Petri, Turinus de Villar" witnessed the charter dated 1173 under which "Radulphus comes de Grueria" donated property to Hauterive abbey, with the consent of "filii eius Willelmus, Petrus, Amadeus"[1159].  "Iuliana" donated property to Hauterive abbey, and "Petrus de Montsilvan et Iuliana mater eius" confirmed other donations, by charter dated 1180[1160]m PETRONILLE d’Estavayer, daughter of ---.  "Juliana et Petrus filius eius et Petronella uxor Petri" donated property to Hauterive by charter dated 1165[1161].  According to Hisely, the wife of Pierre de Montsalvan was the sister of Conon d’Estavayer, provost of Lausanne[1162].  Pierre & his wife had one child: 

i)          GUILLAUME de Montsalvan (-before 1227).  "Willelmus filius Petri de Montsalvan" confirmed the property of Hauterive abbey by charter dated [10/11] Jan [1181/82][1163].  His death without direct heirs is suggested by the charter dated 1227 under which "Willermus filius domini Petri Achardi" confirmed that he held property in fee from "Rodulfo iuvene comite de Gruieri, qui habet filiam domini Jordani de Bealmont" which "avus et pater meus" held from "dominis de Montsalvan"[1164].  The fact that the property of Guillaume de Montsalvan reverted to Rodolphe [III] Comte de Gruyère provides another indication of the probable relationship between the two families. 

b)         AGNES (-after 1162).  A charter dated 1162 confirms the foundation of the abbey of Hauterive and records donations by "Petrus de Gruiera et Juliana mater eius apud Foz castrum", with the consent of "Agnes soror eius"[1165]
