Chapter 4.    VENCE

 

 

A.      11th CENTURY FAMILIES in VENCE

 

 

The county of Vence was bound to the east by the county of Nice, to the south by the Mediterranean, to the west by the counties of Glandevez and Antibes, and to the north by the county of Glandevez[72]

 

There is no evidence in the primary sources so far consulted that any member of the following families was described as "Seigneur de Vence".  However, it is clear from the documents that they enjoyed a position of some importance in the county.  Although the precise relationship between the different family groups has not been traced, the references in the documentation to commonly held properties shows that they must have been closely related in some way.

The following four persons appear to be siblings from the charter quoted below, although the relationship is not stated specifically in the document.  However, it appears from the wording of the document that the brothers Rostain and Raimbaud, who are named in the second part of the list of signatories, were the not the same as the two brothers of the same name who are named in the first part and are shown in other sources to be the sons of Laugier and his wife Odile (see above).  The main difficulty is the change in order of their names in the second part compared with the first.  Nevertheless, all the names suggest a close relationship between the two families.

Petrus, Ugo, Petrus Goto, Guillelmus…"[179].  It is unclear from the text whether the names which follow "infantibus illorum" are in fact the children in question.  The fact that the two groups of name are separated by a full-stop suggests that this might not be the case, although some of the names are the same as the couple´s children who are named in other documents as shown below.  "Amicus et uxor mea…Hieucvara et…filii mei Petrus, Guillelmus, Bertrannus, Hugo, Miro" donated property "in comitatu Vencensi…in…villa…Saleta Saramann" to Saint-Victor Marseille by charter dated 1041[180].  Amic & his first wife had five children:

Chapter 5.    VENTIMIGLIA

 

 

Ventimiglia is located in the present-day Italian region of Liguria.  However, the comital family was closely associated with the rulers of Provence and also ruled Roquebrune, Tendé and La Brigue, all located within the area of influence of the medieval county of Provence.  It has proved difficult to verify the reconstruction of the early generations of this family, shown in Europäische Stammtafeln, from the primary sources which have been available[194].  The genealogy of the family was first attempted in the late 17th century by Dominique Robert[195].  Much of Robert’s information is unsupported by primary source citations.  In cases where he refers to primary source documentation in sufficient detail to inspire confidence, details have been included in the present chapter, although no doubt many of those original sources have long since disappeared.  The reconstruction is complicated by all adult male family members bearing the comital title.  Other detailed reconstructions of the Ventimiglia are available on the internet, but in relation to many details none was found which is consistent with the primary source data which is extracted below. 

 

 

1.         CORRADO [I] (-before 30 Jan 1038).  Conte di Ventimigliam ADELISIA, daughter of --- (-after 1041).  "Nos germani fratres et comites Vintimiliensis…Otto et Conradus…cum matre nostra Adalais et comitissa Armilina" donated "monasterium sancti Michaelis" to Lérins by charter dated 1041[196].  Conrad & his wife had two children: 

a)         OTTONE (-after Aug 1077).  "Nos germani fratres et comites Vintimiliensis…Otto et Conradus…cum matre nostra Adalais et comitissa Armilina" donated "monasterium sancti Michaelis" to Lérins by charter dated 1041[197]Conte di Ventimiglia.  "Otho et Chonradus germani comites Vintimiliensis filii quondam item Chonradis comitis…ex natione nostra lege vivere romana" donated the church of San Michele to the monastery of San Onorato by charter dated 21 Dec 1063[198].  "Otto et Conradus iermani comites filii quondam item Conradi comitis et Donella iugalis infrascripti Ottonis comitis et filia Alberti marchionis…ex nacione nostra lege viventes romana" donated property to the church of San Michele by charter dated Aug 1077[199].  [m firstly ARMILINA, daughter of --- (-after 1041).  "Nos germani fratres et comites Vintimiliensis…Otto et Conradus…cum matre nostra Adalais et comitissa Armilina" donated "monasterium sancti Michaelis" to Lérins by charter dated 1041[200].  The relationship between "comitissa Armilina" and the donors is not specified in the document.  However, it is likely that she was the wife of Otto, especially as Corrado´s wife is named in another source (see below).]  m [secondly] DONELLA, daughter of Marchese ALBERTO & his wife --- (-after Aug 1077).  "Otto et Conradus iermani comites filii quondam item Conradi comitis et Donella iugalis infrascripti Ottonis comitis et filia Alberti marchionis…ex nacione nostra lege viventes romana" donated property to the church of San Michele by charter dated Aug 1077[201].  Ottone & his [first/second] wife had [two] children: 

i)          [OBERTO (-after 1140).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Conte di Ventimiglia.  "Obertus Vigint. comes" donated property "in Vigintimilio et in comitatu" to "civitas com. Januæ" by charter dated 6 Aug 1140[202].  A charter dated 1140 records the agreement between the people of Genoa and "marchiones filios Bonefacii…Manfredum et Hugonem et Anselmum et Henricum et Ottonem", promising not to make war secretly with "Oberto comite Vintimillii et filiis eius" with the permission of Genoa[203].]  m ---.  Oberto & his wife had children: 

(a)       --- .  A charter dated 1140 records the agreement between the people of Genoa and "marchiones filios Bonefacii…Manfredum et Hugonem et Anselmum et Henricum et Ottonem", promising not to make war secretly with "Oberto comite Vintimillii et filiis eius" with the permission of Genoa[204]

ii)         [ISTOFREDO Spedaldo (-after 6 Oct 1079).  "Spedaldus filius q. domini comitis…mea lege vivere romana" donated property "mea…per divisionis…in comitatu Ventimiliense in loco et fundo Sobolcaro" to the church of San Michele, for the souls of "filiis meis qui deffuncti sunt", by charter dated Aug 1077, signed by "Jstofredus qui et Spedaldus"[205].  The document does not name the donor´s father but, as Conte Corrado [II] was recorded after that date, it is assumed that he was the son of Conte Ottone.] 

b)         CORRADO [II] (-after 19 Mar 1082).  "Conradus comes filius quondam bone memorie Conradi itemque comes…ex nacione mea lege vivere romana…cum meis filiis filiabus" swore allegiance to "Conradus episcopus sancte Ianuensis ecclesie" by charter dated 30 Jan 1038[206].  "Nos germani fratres et comites Vintimiliensis…Otto et Conradus…cum matre nostra Adalais et comitissa Armilina" donated "monasterium sancti Michaelis" to Lérins by charter dated 1041[207]Conte di Ventimiglia.  "Otho et Chonradus germani comites Vintimiliensis filii quondam item Chonradis comitis…ex natione nostra lege vivere romana" donated the church of San Michele to the monastery of San Onorato by charter dated 21 Dec 1063[208].  "Otto et Conradus iermani comites filii quondam item Conradi comitis et Donella iugalis infrascripti Ottonis comitis et filia Alberti marchionis…ex nacione nostra lege viventes romana" donated property to the church of San Michele by charter dated Aug 1077[209].  "Conradus filius quondam Conradi comitis et Odila jugalis filia Laugerii" donated "ecclesiam sancti Martini…in comitatu Vintimigliense in valle Carnolense" to Lérins by charter dated 19 Mar 1082 signed "in curte propria predicti comitis de castro Vintimilie"[210]m ODILE, daughter of LAUGIER & his wife Odile --- (-after 19 Mar 1082).  "Conradus filius quondam Conradi comitis et Odila jugalis filia Laugerii" donated "ecclesiam sancti Martini…in comitatu Vintimigliense in valle Carnolense" to Lérins by charter dated 19 Mar 1082 signed "in curte propria predicti comitis de castro Vintimilie"[211]

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         GUGLIELMO BERENGERIO (-after [1110]).  A charter dated to [1110/24] records the presence of "duorum comitum Vintimillii, et Guillelmi Berengarii et Poncii, fratris sui" when "Ugo Guillelmus" donated part of "castelli Arluci" to Lérins[212]

2.         PONTIO (-after [1110]).  A charter dated to [1110/24] records the presence of "duorum comitum Vintimillii, et Guillelmi Berengarii et Poncii, fratris sui" at a donation to Lérins[213]

 

 

Two brothers: 

1.         GUIDO Guerra (-[1167/Aug 1185]).  Conte di Ventimiglia"Guido Guerra comes Vintimilliensis" donated "Roccabrunam" to "communi Januæ", represented by "Oberto Spinule", by charter dated 30 Aug 1157[214].  "Comes Vintimiliensis Guido..." subscribed the charter dated 1167 which records the dispute between Lérins and "Raimundum Fulconem et Olivarium fratrem eius"[215]

2.         OTTONE (-before 7 Jun 1203).  Conte di Ventimiglia.  A charter dated 24 Feb 1177 records an agreement between "dominum Otonem commitem Vintimilii" and "dominum Laugerium abbatem sancti Honorati"[216].  “Otho comes Vintimilii” confirmed privileges granted to the community of Ventimiglia by “frater meus Guido Guerra” by charter dated 9 Sep 1185[217]m ---.  The primary source which confirms the name of Ottone’s wife has not been identified.  Ottone & his wife had children: 

a)         GUGLIELMO [I] .  Conte di Ventimiglia.  Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia is named as “frère d’Henri comte de Vintimille et seigneur de Marro, tous deux enfans du Comte Othon” in a charter dated 7 Jun 1203[218]

b)         ENRICOConte di Ventimiglia, Signor di Marro.  Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia is named as “frère d’Henri comte de Vintimille et seigneur de Marro, tous deux enfans du Comte Othon” in a charter dated 7 Jun 1203[219]

 

 

Three brothers.  The primary source which confirms their parentage has not been identified.  From a chronological point of view, they could have been sons of Conte Guglielmo [I] who is named above.  That parentage would be confirmed if it can be assumed that Guglielmo [II] was the same person as Guglielmo [III], who named his father Guglielmo in the charter dated 1257 which is cited below. 

 

1.         EMMANUELE (-after 1235).  Conte di Ventimiglia.  Emmanuele Conte di Ventimiglia was present when “son frère Obert ou Aubert comte de Vintimille” sold “la moitié de la jurisdiction des terres de Châteauneuf...” by charter dated 2 Jul 1217[220]Emmanuele Conte di Ventimiglia “avec Guillaume comte de Vintimille son frère” ratified an arbitration between the inhabitants of Sospel and “Aycard Tolsana” by charter dated 21 Feb 1217 (O.S.?)[221].  Emmanuele was named in a charter dated 1235[222]

-        CONTI di VENTIMIGLIA, SEIGNEURS de LA VERDIERE, SEIGNEURS d’OLLIOULES[223]

2.         GUGLIELMO [II] (-after 21 Feb 1218).  Conte di Ventimiglia.  Emmanuele Conte di Ventimiglia “avec Guillaume comte de Vintimille son frère” ratified an arbitration between the inhabitants of Sospel and “Aycard Tolsana” by charter dated 21 Feb 1217 (O.S.?)[224]

3.         OBERTO )Conte di Ventimiglia.  Emmanuele Conte di Ventimiglia was present when “son frère Obert ou Aubert comte de Vintimille” sold “la moitié de la jurisdiction des terres de Châteauneuf...” by charter dated 2 Jul 1217[225]m (before 28 Jul 1217) GUILLEMETTE de Marseille, daughter of [RAYMOND GEOFFROY [II] Vicomte de Marseille & his wife Ixmille Marquise].  Robert records that a document dated 28 Jul 1217 acknowledges payment of part of the dowry for the marriage of “Guillemette fille de Raymond Gaufridi Vicomte de Marseille” and “Obert Comte de Vintimille[226].  Assuming that this information is accurate, the chronology appears to suggest that Guillemette was the daughter of Raymond Geoffroy [II]. 

 

 

Three brothers.  The charter dated 1257 quoted below confirms that Guglielmo [III] was the son of another Conte Guglielmo.  The chronology appears to suggest that he was the son of Guglielmo [II]. 

 

1.         GUGLIELMO [III] (-after 7 May 1259).  Conte di Ventimiglia.  Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia “tant à son nom que de ses frères” signed a peace treaty with Charles d’Anjou Comte de Provence [Anjou-Capet] to whom he transferred rights in property “qui avoient appartenu à Guillaume de Vintimille son père”, including “les châteaux et seigneuries de Saint Chenet, de Galps, de Tende, de la Brigue...et ce qu’il avoit à Roquebrune, Monaco...enfin généralement toute la comté de Vintimille”, in exchange for other properties in Provence, by charter dated 1257[227].  The testament of Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia, dated 1259, names his “six enfants...Guillaume III, Raymond, Rostan, Othon, Sibile et Berengere[228]Europäische Stammtafeln dates this document to “Grasse 7 May 1259”[229]m ---.  The name of Guglielmo’s wife is not known.  Guglielmo [III] & his wife had six children: 

a)         GUILLAUME (-after 1301).  The testament of Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia, dated 1259, names his “six enfants...Guillaume III, Raymond, Rostan, Othon, Sibile et Berengere[230].  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant en son nom propre que de Guillaume-Pierre son autre frere et de Guillaume son neveu” made a treaty with Charles I King of Sicily, Comte de Provence, settling disputes, dated 17 Mar 1278[231].  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant à son nom que de Guillaume et Pierre Balb ses neveux enfans d’autre Guillaume son frere et aussi au nom de ses autres neveux Jean et Jacques et autres enfans de Guillaume-Pierre” made another treaty with the Comte de Provence dated 21 Jan 1285 (O.S.?)[232]Guglielmo was named in a document dated 1301[233]

b)         RAYMOND (-before 21 Jan 1286).  The testament of Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia, dated 1259, names his “six enfants...Guillaume III, Raymond, Rostan, Othon, Sibile et Berengere[234]

c)         ROSTAIN (-before 21 Jan 1286).  The testament of Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia, dated 1259, names his “six enfants...Guillaume III, Raymond, Rostan, Othon, Sibile et Berengere[235]

d)         OTHON (-before 21 Jan 1286).  The testament of Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia, dated 1259, names his “six enfants...Guillaume III, Raymond, Rostan, Othon, Sibile et Berengere[236]

e)         SIBYLLE .  The testament of Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia, dated 1259, names his “six enfants...Guillaume III, Raymond, Rostan, Othon, Sibile et Berengere[237]

f)          BERENGERE .  The testament of Guglielmo Conte di Ventimiglia, dated 1259, names his “six enfants...Guillaume III, Raymond, Rostan, Othon, Sibile et Berengere[238]

g)         PIERRE Balbe (after 1259-).  Pierre must have been born after 1259 as he is not named in his father’s testament of that date.  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant à son nom que de Guillaume et Pierre Balb ses neveux enfans d’autre Guillaume son frere et aussi au nom de ses autres neveux Jean et Jacques et autres enfans de Guillaume-Pierre” made another treaty with the Comte de Provence dated 21 Jan 1285 (O.S.?)[239]

2.         PIETRO Balbo (-after 21 Jan 1286).  Conte di Ventimiglia.  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant en son nom propre que de Guillaume-Pierre son autre frere et de Guillaume son neveu” made a treaty with Charles I King of Sicily, Comte de Provence, settling disputes, dated 17 Mar 1278[240].  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant à son nom que de Guillaume et Pierre Balb ses neveux enfans d’autre Guillaume son frere et aussi au nom de ses autres neveux Jean et Jacques et autres enfans de Guillaume-Pierre” made another treaty with the Comte de Provence dated 21 Jan 1285 (O.S.?)[241]

3.         GUILLAUME PIERRE de Ventimiglia [Vintimille] (-before 15 Apr 1282).  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant en son nom propre que de Guillaume-Pierre son autre frere et de Guillaume son neveu” made a treaty with Charles I King of Sicily, Comte de Provence, settling disputes, dated 17 Mar 1278[242]Seigneur de Tendé.  He was banished by Charles I King of Sicily in 1276[243].  His absence from the marriage contract of his daughter Beatrix, in which his wife is named (see below), presumably indicates that Guillaume Pierre was deceased at the time.  m ([1261/62]) EVDOKIA Laskarina, daughter of THEODOROS II Emperor in Nikaia & his wife Elena Asanina of Bulgaria ([1254]-after 21 Apr 1304).  Georgius Akropolites names "Ioannem…Theodoram et Eudociam" as the three remaining unmarried children of Emperor Theodoros II[244]Ephræmius names "parvulum Ioannem…duasque virgunculas, Eudociam…ac Theodoram" as the three children still remaining at home when "Theodorus" died[245].  Pachymeres records that "pueri Ioannis sorores germanas…alteram" married "Latino…magistani…Vintimilia ex urbe Genua"[246].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Evdokia married secondly Arnau Roger [I] Conde de Pallars[247].  This is proved incorrect by the various Spanish charters quoted below in which Evdokia is consistently named “infantissa” (honouring the fact that she was the ruler’s daughter, in line with Spanish practice), in contrast to her daughter [Lascara] de Vintimille who was recorded in other charters (see below) as widow of Conde Arnau Roger but never with this honorific to which she was not entitled as the ruler’s granddaughter.  Secondary sources available on the web indicate that Baucells i Reig reached the same conclusion[248], but as his article has not been consulted it has not proved possible to ascertain whether he used the same argument.  It should be noted that Miret y Sans, in his article on Evdokia in the early 20th century, failed to notice the distinction of the titles accorded to mother and daughter and assumed that the conde de Pallars was Evdokia’s second husband[249].  Pedro III King of Aragon acknowledged the marriage contract between “Raimundo de Montechateno domino de Fraga...Guillelmo de Montecateno filio vestro” and “domina Azchara infantissa de Grecia...dompne Beatricis filie sue” by charter dated 15 Apr 1282[250].  “Domina infantissa Lascherea filia quondam...Lascheri imperatoris Grecorum” transferred the pension granted by the king to “Simoni de Vico campsori Barchinone” by charter dated 27 Jul 1288[251].  Alfonso III King of Aragon granted “ad habitagium vestrum Regale nostrum Xatiue” to “dompne Alaschere infantisse grecorum” by charter dated 28 Jul [1286/90][252].  Jaime II King of Aragon, at the request of “dompne Alaschare infantisse Grecorum”, ordered Guillem de Montcada to respect her rights to “los lugares de Zaidín y Vallobar por ser heredera de su difunta hija Beatriz” by charter dated 21 Apr 1304[253].  Guillaume Pierre & his wife had four children: 

a)         JEAN Lascaris de Vintimille .  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant à son nom que de Guillaume et Pierre Balb ses neveux enfans d’autre Guillaume son frere et aussi au nom de ses autres neveux Jean et Jacques et autres enfans de Guillaume-Pierre” made another treaty with the Comte de Provence dated 21 Jan 1285 (O.S.?)[254].  Co-seigneur de Tendé et de La Brigue. 

-        COMTES de TENDE, SEIGNEURS de ROQUEBRUNE[255]

b)         JACQUES de Vintimille (-after 21 Jan 1285).  Conte Pietro Balbo “tant à son nom que de Guillaume et Pierre Balb ses neveux enfans d’autre Guillaume son frere et aussi au nom de ses autres neveux Jean et Jacques et autres enfans de Guillaume-Pierre” made another treaty with the Comte de Provence dated 21 Jan 1285 (O.S.?)[256].  Co-seigneur de Tendé et de La Brigue. 

c)         [LASCARA] de Vintimille (-after 23 Dec 1309)The primary source which confirms expressly that the wife of Arnau Roger [I] Conde de Pallars was the daughter of Guillaume Pierre de Vintimille and his wife has not been identified.  However, her name in the charters quoted below indicates that she must have been the daughter of Evdokia Laskarina.  It is unlikely that “Lascara” was this daughter’s baptismal name.  It was presumably accorded to her in contemporary documentation in honour of her illustrious maternal ancestry, the same as her mother.  No document has been found which specifies any other name.  “Berenguer de Calders” acknowledged holding property from “domine Laschere...comitisse Pallariensis...nomine vestri sponsalicii et R. de Urgio tutori testamentarii Sibilie, Beatricis et Violant filiarum et heredum...dicte domine comitisse et domino Arnaldo Rogerii...comiti Pallariense quondam et Guillelmo de Castroveteri manumissori testamenti dicti domini comitis” by charter dated 11 Mar 1288 (O.S.)[257].  “Domina Laschera...comitissa Pallariensis” renounced claims against Santa Maria de Serrateix, naming “Sibiliam de Berga filiam nostram”, by charter dated 24 Apr 1290, confirmed by charter dated 17 and 18 May 1295[258].  Jaime II King of Aragon obliged “dona Liscara comtessa de Paillars” to enter “el monestir de Jonqueres a Barçelona”, because of her relationship with “al noble en Bernat de Sarriá almirayl e conseyler vostre”, by charter dated 5 Jul [maybe dated to 1307/08][259].  King Jaime II confirmed “la casa de Palau Salatá del Vallés” to “dompne Laschare olim comitisse Pallariensis” by charter dated 23 Dec 1309[260]m ([1281/82]) as his second wife, ARNAU ROGER [I] Conde de Pallars, son of ROGER [II] Conde de Pallars Vicomte de Couserans & his second wife Sibila de Berga (-[1 Oct 1288/[Feb] 1289]). 

d)         BEATRIX de Vintimille (-before Apr 1304).  Pedro III King of Aragon acknowledged the marriage contract between “Raimundo de Montechateno domino de Fraga...Guillelmo de Montecateno filio vestro” and “domina Azchara infantissa de Grecia...dompne Beatricis filie sue” by charter dated 15 Apr 1282[261].  Jaime II King of Aragon, at the request of “dompne Alaschare infantisse Grecorum”, ordered Guillem de Montcada to respect her rights to “los lugares de Zaidín y Vallobar por ser heredera de su difunta hija Beatriz” by charter dated 21 Apr 1304[262].  The fact that her mother was her heir suggests that Beatrix died childless.  m (contract 15 Apr 1282) GUILLEM de Montcada, son of RAMON de Montcada Señor de Fraga & his wife Leonor de Urgell (-after 1304).
