Chapter 2.    DIE [DIOIS]

 

 

The early history of the county of Die [Diois] is obscure.  Corresponding approximately to the present-day department of Drôme, it was located in the southern part of what was the ancient kingdom of Burgundy, north of Provence and to the east of the county of Valentinois along the eastern bank of the river Rhône.  Forming part of the territory of Boson who was elected king in 879 in opposition to the Carolingians, it became part of the marquisate of Provence which fell under the influence of the Comtes de Toulouse.  It remained technically under the jurisdiction of the Holy Roman Empire, having been part of the territory of the ancient kingdom of Burgundy which passed to the kings of Germany after the death of the last king in 1032.  Raymond de Saint-Gilles Comte de Toulouse confirmed the rights of the Comtes de Valentinois over the county of Diois in 1089.  The bishopric of Die, in the archiepiscopal province of Vienne, appears to have acquired considerable political power within the county at the expense of the counts, who were obliged to swear allegiance to the bishop in 1159.  The territory's eventual integration with the kingdom of France was signalled in 1280 when Aymar [IV] Comte de Valentinois et de Diois swore allegiance to Philippe III "le Hardi" King of France for his territories, including the county of Diois.  The late 19th century work of Canon Jules Chevalier[124] emphasises the impossibility of any satisfactory reconstruction of the family of the early counts for want of adequate surviving documentation but quotes extensively from the charters which have survived.

Chapter 3.    FORCALQUIER

 

 

A.      COMTES de FORCALQUIER (URGELL-BARCELONA)

 

 

The county of Forcalquier was located to the north of the county of Provence, east of the marquisate of Provence.  The comtes de Provence held Forcalquier in the 11th century, when it formed part of the county of Sisteron: a charter dated 1044 records that “Bertrannus...marchio sive comes Provincie” donated property "in comitatu Sigisterico...territorio castelli...Forcalcherium" to Marseille Saint-Victor[143].  The precise date from which Forcalquier was elevated to comital status has not been ascertained.  Forcalquier was inherited by Adelaide, only daughter and heiress of Guillaume [VI] Bertrand Comte de Provence (see Chapter 3.B, above).  Adelaide married, as his second wife, Armengol [IV] Comte de Urgell and transmitted the county of Forcalquier to her son Guilhem (Guillaume) who also claimed the marquisate of Provence in opposition to the comtes de Toulouse.  His descendants are shown in Part A of this chapter.  An agreement was reached in 1125 between the Toulouse and Forcalquier families which established the boundaries between their territories.  Emperor Friedrich I "Barbarossa" recognised the comte de Forcalquier as the direct vassal of the empire by charter dated 21 Dec 1164[144].  After the death in [1209] of Guillaume [II] Comte de Forcalquier, inheritance of the county was disputed between his grand-daughter Garsende de Sabran, wife of Alphonse II Comte de Provence, and his sister´s son Guillaume [de Sabran].  The descendants of the latter are shown in Part B of this chapter.  A settlement of the dispute was imposed by the archbishop of Aix in 1220 under which Guillaume was obliged to relinquish Sisteron and Pertuis which he had captured but allowed to retain the title comte de Forcalquier.

Chapter 5.    ORANGE

 

 

 

A.      COMTES d'ORANGE

 

 

It is uncertain when and how Orange acquired comital status.  Bertrand, who from the sources quoted below appears to have been seigneur d’Orange in the mid-11th century, was not referred to as count in the surviving sources in which he is named.  His wife Adelaide was called “comitissa” in a source written many years after her death, and her son Raimbaud was consistently referred to as count in the sources quoted below.  No earlier references have been found to Orange having constituted a county before the mid-11th century.  One possibility is that Bertrand first acquired the lordship of the town of Orange, married Adelaide who was titled countess by virtue of a previous marriage to an unknown count, and that the title was applied to her husband’s lordship, similar to the way in which the lordship of Alençon in Normandy acquired comital status. 

 

 

BERTRAND, son of RAIMBAUD & his [third wife Adelaide ---].  He is recorded in three documents: "Raimbaldus...et filiis suis ac Laugerio, Raimbaldo scilicet et Bertranno" donated "monasterium sancti Verani…in pago Vinciensi" to Lérins by charter dated 1062[197]; "Petrus Vasensis episcopus filius Raimbaldi" donated “castrum...Drapo...in comitatu Nicensi” to Nice, for the soul of "domni Mironi qui fuit quondam", by charter dated 21 Apr 1073, signed by “Leodegarius frater, Rostagnus frater, Bertrannus frater...[198]; "Bertrandus filius Raimbaldi et uxor mea cum filiis meis" donated “vineam de Columba quartam partem...in Calvarolas...” to Nice by charter dated to [1078], signed by "Petrus episcopus..."[199].  His identification as the father of Raimbaud Comte d’Orange is indicated by two other documents.  Firstly, Cais de Pierlas indicates a source dated to [1061] which names “Bertrandus Aurasicensis filius Raimbaldi” (although he does not provide any citation reference)[200].  Secondly, an undated letter from Pope Alexander II (who was Pope from 1061 to 1073) threatened “Bertrando filio Raimbaldi” with excommunication if he persisted in harassing Géraud who was Bishop of Orange from 1060 to 1085[201].  He cites other sources which indicate that other members of Bertrand’s family were resident in the area of Orange. 

m [as her second husband,] ADELAIDE, [widow of ---,] daughter of --- (-after 12 Oct 1103).  The fact that she was the mother of Raimbaud Comte d’Orange is confirmed by the charter dated 1126 under which “Idelfonsus comes Tholosanus et marchio Provinciæ” confirmed properties to Berenger Bishop of Orange, with the consent of “Thiburgæ filii Raimbaldi”, including donations made by “comitissa mater Raimbaldi...Atalaix[202].  The possibility of her earlier marriage is discussed in the Introduction to this section. 

Bertrand & his wife had one child:

1.         RAIMBAUD (-[1121]).  His mother’s identity is confirmed by the charter dated 1126 quoted below.  No primary source has been identified which confirms the identity of his father, but this is indicated by the documents quoted above.  Comte d'OrangeWilliam of Tyre names "Raimbaus Comte de Orange" among those who left on the First Crusade in 1096 with Robert Count of Flanders[203]Albert of Aix names "…Reinboldus comes de Oringis civitate…" among those who took part in the siege of Nikaia, dated to mid-1097 from the context[204]William of Tyre names "Rainboldus comes de Oringis" among those present at the capture of Antioch in 1098[205]Albert of Aix records that "comes de Oringis Reinboldus, Ludowicus de Monzuns, Lambertus filius Cononis de Monte Acuto" commanded one of the corps of men at the capture of Antioch in Jun 1098[206]m ---.  The name of Raimbaud's wife is not known.  Raimbaud & his wife had one child: 

a)         TIBURGE (-after [1146]).  “Idelfonsus comes Tholosanus et marchio Provinciæ” confirmed properties to Berenger Bishop of Orange, with the consent of “Thiburgæ filii Raimbaldi”, including donations made by “comitissa mater Raimbaldi...Atalaix”, by charter dated 1126[207].  Her known marriage is deduced from the testament of Tiburge princesse d'Orange which is dated [1146?], and names Bertrand de Baux husband of her daughter Tiburge, his son Guillaume V, her son Raimbaud IV, and Adhemar de Murvieux husband of her daughter Tiburgette[208], read together with the testament of her husband which names the same children[209].  [m firstly ---.  The primary source which confirms Tiburge’s supposed first marriage has not been identified.  Indications of the identity of Tiburge’s first husband are contradictory.  Cais de Pierlas says that he was “Geoffroi de Mornas”, without providing any citation reference[210], but he appears to have confused the first marriage of Tiburge’s younger daughter Tiburge (see below).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, he was “Géraud Adhémar”, specifying that the couple married “before 12 Oct 1103” and that he was “Prince d’Orange 1115”[211].  This supposed person has not been identified in the Adhémar family Seigneurs de Monteil (see below), while the reference to Orange being a principality at that time is anachronistic.  The possibility is that this represents confusion with the marriage of Tiburge’s older daughter Tiburgette, whose husband was named Adémar.]  m [secondly] (after 1118) GUILLAUME d'Omelas, son of GUILLAUME [V] Seigneur de Montpellier & his wife Ermesende ---l (-before 1161). 

 

 

 

B.      COMTES d'ORANGE (MONTPELLIER)

 

 

GUILLAUME d'Omelas, son of GUILLAUME [V] Seigneur de Montpellier & his wife Ermesende --- (-[8 Mar/5 Jun] 1156).  His father under his testament dated 1121 left the châteaux of Omelas, Montarnaud, Popian, Saint Pons and Mazeres to "Guillaume son second fils"[212].  Pierre abbé d'Aniane granted property rights over Carcarez to "Guillelmo de Omelatis filio Guillelmi de Montepussulano" by charter dated 1122[213].  The testament of Guillelmus de Omellacio”, dated 8 Mar 1156 and opened 5 Jun 1156, bequeathes “castrum de Montebaseno...villam de sancto Georgio de Cornone-sicco, et castrum de Mazernis, et castrum de Monte-Adino“ to “filiæ meæ Tiburgiæ uxori Ademari de Muroveteri“ (specifying that she should leave “castrum de Montebaseno“ to “filio suo Sicardo“ and if he dies early to “Raimundo Atoni filio suo“), “villam de Muroveteri“ to “alii filiæ meæ Tiburgæ, uxori quondam Gaufridi de Mornas“, “castro de Omellas...et castro Montis-Arnaldi...castro de Popiano et castro de Pojet et castro sancti Poncii et castro de Frontiniane et castro de Villanova...et honore de Valle...et castro de Piniano“ to “Raimbaldum filium meum“, “usumfructum honoris...de Valle“ to “matri meæ Ermesendi[214]

m (after 1118) [as her second husband,] TIBURGE d'Orange, [widow of ---,] daughter of RAIMBAUD Comte d'Orange & his wife --- (after [1146]).  The question of her first marriage is discussed above.  Her known marriage can be deduced from the testament of Tiburge princesse d'Orange which is dated [1146?], and names Bertrand de Baux husband of her daughter Tiburge, his son Guillaume V, her son Raimbaud IV, and Adhemar de Murvieux husband of her daughter Tiburgette[215], read together with the testament of her second husband which names the same children[216].  In view of the dates noted below for the marriage of her daughter Tiburge to Bertrand des Baux, the date of Tiburge´s testament must be incorrect, assuming that the document is genuine.  “Idelfonsus comes Tholosanus et marchio Provinciæ” confirmed properties to Berenger Bishop of Orange, with the consent of “Thiburgæ filii Raimbaldi”, including donations made by “comitissa mater Raimbaldi...Atalaix”, by charter dated 1126[217]

Guillaume & his wife had three children: 

1.         RAIMBAUD d'Omelas "le Troubadour d'Orange" (-[1173/91]).  The testament of Tiburge princesse d'Orange names Bertrand de Baux husband of her daughter Tiburge, his son Guillaume V, her son Raimbaud IV, and Adhemar de Murvieux husband of her daughter Tiburgete[218]The testament of Guillelmus de Omellacio”, dated 5 Jun 1156, bequeathes “castro de Omellas...et castro Montis-Arnaldi...castro de Popiano et castro de Pojet et castro sancti Poncii et castro de Frontiniane et castro de Villanova...et honore de Valle...et castro de Piniano“ to “Raimbaldum filium meum[219]Seigneur d'Omelas, de Mont-Arnaud, de Pouget et de Popian.  Seigneur d'Orange 1171.  "Raimbaud d'Orange" names "Bertrand de Baux son beau-frère, mari de Tiburge et ses enfants Guillaume, Bertrand et Hugues de Baux…Adhemar de Murvieux et aux enfants qu'il a eus de sa sœur Tiburgette" in his testament dated 1173[220].  The property held by "Raimbaldus de Aurenga…pater eius Guillelmus de Omelacio" constituted the dowry for the marriage between "Ademarus de Muro-Veteri…neptem meam Titburgam filiam quondam majorem Raimundi Atonis, olim filii mei…" and "Guillelmo domino Montispessulani, filio quondam Mathildis Ducissæ…filio Guillelmo" by charter dated 1191[221]

2.         TIBURGE [Tiburgette] d'Orange (-before 1173).  The contract of marriage between "Guillelmus de Omellacio…filiam meam Titburgam" and "Ademaro de Muroveteri" is dated 7 Feb 1150, and also names her “Tiburgueta[222].  The testament of “Guillelmus de Omellacio”, dated 5 Jun 1156, bequeathes “castrum de Montebaseno...villam de sancto Georgio de Cornone-sicco, et castrum de Mazernis, et castrum de Monte-Adino“ to “filiæ meæ Tiburgiæ uxori Ademari de Muroveteri“, specifying that she should leave “castrum de Montebaseno“ to “filio suo Sicardo“ and if he dies early to “Raimundo Atoni filio suo[223].  Dame de Monbazin.  1149/65.  She died before the 1173 testament of "Raimbaud d'Orange" which names "…Adhemar de Murvieux et aux enfants qu'il a eus de sa sœur Tiburgette"[224]m (contract 7 Feb 1150) ADEMAR de Murviel, son of --- (-after 1191).  The testament of Tiburge princesse d'Orange names Bertrand de Baux husband of her daughter Tiburge, his son Guillaume V, her son Raimbaud IV, and Adhemar de Murvieux husband of her daughter Tiburgete[225].  1141/1191.  "Raimbaud d'Orange" names "Bertrand de Baux son beau-frère, mari de Tiburge et ses enfants Guillaume, Bertrand et Hugues de Baux…Adhemar de Murvieux et aux enfants qu'il a eus de sa sœur Tiburgette" in his testament dated 1173[226].  Adémar & his wife had [three or more] children:

i)          HUGUES de Baux (-[1251]).  His parentage is proved by the charter dated 10 Apr 1244 under which "Aymar de Poitiers III comte de Valentinois, fils de feu Guillaume et de Florie" confirmed his desire for the marriage of "sa fille Philippine" to "Hugues fils ainé de Barral seigneur de Baux", when they reached the age of puberty, or if he died to "Bertrand fils cadet de Barral"[263]Betrothed (10 Apr 1244) to PHILIPPA de Poitiers-Valentinois, daughter of AYMAR [III] de Poitiers Comte de Valentinois et de Diois & his first wife Sibylle de Beaujeu (-[1283]).  By charter dated 10 Apr 1244, "Aymar de Poitiers III comte de Valentinois, fils de feu Guillaume et de Florie" confirmed his desire for the marriage of "sa fille Philippine" to "Hugues fils ainé de Barral seigneur de Baux", when they reached the age of puberty, or if he died to "Bertrand fils cadet de Barral"[264].  Considering the chronology of the family, Philippa must have been a baby at the time and was probably her parents' first child.

HUGUES [de Valence, son of ADEMAR Comte de Valence & his wife Rotilde ---] "Ademarus comes [Valentinensis] [et] Roteldis uxor mea" confirmed the donations to Cluny by his father by charter dated 1037 jointly with "filii nostri Pontio episcopo, Ugone, Lamberto, Gontardo, Geraldo"[451]Chevalier proposes that Hugues, father of the brothers Guillaume, Adémar and Lambert, all named in the Cluny charter dated to [1049/1108] quoted below, was the same person as Hugues son of Adémar Comte de Valence[452].  He also asserts that these three sons of Hugues were the same persons as Guillaume de Monteil, Adémar Bishop of Le Puy and Lambert-François de Peyrins, whom other sources demonstrate were brothers.  He cites another source which states that Bishop Adémar was the son of an unnamed Comte de Valence.  One difficulty with this co-identity is that the Hugues of the Cluny charter is not referred to as "comes".  On the other hand, it is likely that Hugues was a person of some substance to have been named at all as the father of the three witnesses. 

m ABALDISIA [Adalisia], daughter of ISMIDON [Seigneur de Peyrins] & his wife --- (-after 20 Aug 1108).  "Lambert cognomento Franciscus et mater eius Abaldisia" donated property to the church of Romans, naming "comes Guigo", by charter dated 12 May 1100[453].  "Lambert François, son fils Rainaldus et sa mère Abaldisia" donated property to the church of Romans by charter dated 20 Aug 1108[454]Her parentage is confirmed by a charter dated 4 Nov 1097 which records a peace treaty between "Lambert" and the church of Romans (1856), naming "Ismido avus eius"[455]

Chapter 7.    VALENTINOIS

 

 

A.      COMTES de VALENTINOIS (POITIERS)

 

 

The Comtes de Valentinois emerged in the mid-12th century and developed their county into a quasi-independent entity of some political significance over the course of the following hundred years.  According to Guy Allard[589], Adémar, father of Guillaume "de Poitiers" Comte de Valentinois, was the son of Albert, a son of Geilin [II] Comte de Valence, whom he suggests in turn was a descendant of Comte Geilin [I] a younger son of Ebles Comte de Poitou.  The Histoire Générale de Languedoc suggests that Guillaume de Poitiers Comte de Valentinois was the illegitimate son of Guillaume IX Comte de Poitou[590].  Julien Chevalier suggests that the family originated in the area of Narbonne and Nîmes where records show a contemporary family named "de Poitiers"[591].  He refers to "castro Pictavis" which formed part of the properties of brothers Leger and Pons, of the family of the Vicomtes de Nice, donated to Cluny by charter dated 22 May 1023[592]

 

 

Three siblings, parents not yet identified: 

1.         EUSTACHE (-after [1148/54]).  Comte [de Valentinois].  "Wilelmus Valencie prepositus" confirmed a donation to the Templars at Richerenches at the request of "Riperto de Charrovalis" by charter dated Mar 1138, confirmed by "comes Eustachius frater W. prepositi predicti"[593].  "Eustachius episcopus et comes Valentinensis" issued a charter for Léoncel dated to [1148/54][594]

2.         GUILLAUME (-before 1164).  "Wilelmus Valencie prepositus" confirmed a donation to the Templars at Richerenches at the request of "Riperto de Charrovalis" by charter dated Mar 1138, confirmed by "comes Eustachius frater W. prepositi predicti"[595].  His family connections are confirmed by the charter dated 1164 under which "Wilelmus Pictaviensis et…Eustachius frater Wilelmi" confirmed the donation of property to the order of St John of Jerusalem by "patruus noster Wilelmus Vivariensis episcopus"[596].  "Eustachius prepositus Valentinus" confirmed the donation of "W[illelm]us Valentinus prepositus avunculus meus" of "Clivum" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre, Saint-Guy du Puy by charter dated 1217[597].  Provost at Valence.  Bishop of Viviers

1.         [GUILLAUME de Poitiers.]  The Histoire Générale de Languedoc suggests that Guillaume de Poitiers Comte de Valentinois was the illegitimate son of Guillaume IX Comte de Poitou[604].  There seems to be no basis for the suggestion apart from the similarity of the names Poitiers/Poitou.  m ---.  [Guillaume & his wife had two children]: 

a)         AYMAR [I] de Poitiers Comte de ValentinoisIt is assumed that he inherited the county of Valentinois from his wife´s family, although the primary source which confirms that this is correct has not yet been identified.  An enquiry dated 1421 by the parliament at Poitiers records that "Raimon Duc de Narbonne, Comte de Tolose et Marquis de Provence" granted "la comté de Dioys" to "Aimart Comte de Valentinois" in 1189[605].  "Aemarus Pictaviensis" placed the monks of Léoncel under his protection by an undated charter, but dateable to the mid-12th century, sealed by "A Pictaviensis comitis Valentini"[606]The Historia Albigensis records "Ademarus Pictavensis" as one of the supporters of the comte de Toulouse who fortified his castles against threat [from Simon de Montfort][607]m [RIXENDE], daughter of ---.  The name and origin of Aymar´s wife are unknown.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[608], she was Rixende, possible sister of Eustache Bishop and Comte de Valentinois, daughter of ---.  Julien Chevalier refers to speculation that Bishop Eustache introduced Aymar de Poitiers into the region and gave him his daughter, presumably illegitimate, in marriage but emphasises that there is no documentary evidence to support this[609].  Aymar's use of the name Eustache for his second son does suggest there may be a family relationship.  The relationship appears to be confirmed by the charter dated 1217 under which her son "Eustachius prepositus Valentinus" confirmed the donation of "W[illelm]us Valentinus prepositus avunculus meus" of "Clivum" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre, Saint-Guy du Puy[610], although the same donation was confirmed earlier by another charter in which "Wilelmus Pictaviensis et…Eustachius frater Wilelmi" name the donor "patruus noster Wilelmus Vivariensis episcopus"[611].  The charter dated Mar 1138 under which her supposed brother "Wilelmus Valencie prepositus" confirmed a donation to the Templars at Richerenches at the request of "Riperto de Charrovalis", confirmed by "comes Eustachius frater W. prepositi predicti"[612], suggests that "avunculus" should be preferred over "patruus" and that the donor was the maternal uncle of the brothers Guillaume and Eustache de Poitiers.  Another perspective is provided by an enquiry dated 1421 by the parliament at Poitiers which records that "aux anciens des pays de Valentinois et de Dioys…la Comtesse de Marsanne" was challenged "estant veuve [par] les evesques de Valence et de Dye" and that she married her daughter to "un surnommé de Poitiers", who was passing through the town of Montélimar, to enlist his support and that "Guillaume de Poitiers…comte de Valentinois et de Dioys" was the son of this marriage[613].  According to the charter dated 22 Sep 1099, under which "Guillelmus Hugo Adhemarii de Montilio et Giraudus Adhemarii de Montilio fratres…filii…defunctorum…Giraudeti Adhemarii de Montilio et Alisiæ de Poligniaco" confirmed the donations of "patres et avunculi nostri" dated 21 Mar 1094 and of "avum nostrum" dated 22 Sep 1099 to Montélimar, witnessed by "Guillelmus de Pictavia comes Valentinensis et Diensis, Eustachius de Pictavia, præpositus ecclesiæ cathedralis civitatis Valentiæ, fratres et filii defunctorum…Aymarii de Pictaviæ et Veronicæ Adhemarii de Montilio amitæ…contrahentium, quondam comitum Valentinen. et Dyens"[614], she was Véronique Adémar de Monteil, daughter of Giraud Adémar de Monteil & his wife [Anne d´Albon].  This charter is classified as spurious in the compilation, along with other similar charters in the same series, and it is uncertain how much of the genealogical information contained therein is based on historical fact.  Aymar [I] & his wife had two children: 

i)          GUILLAUME [I] de Poitiers (-[1188/89]).  "Willelmus Pictavensis comes Valentinus" donated property to Léoncel by an undated charter in which he names "patris mei domini Aldemari"[615]Comte de Valentinois

Comte Guillaume & his second wife had one child: 

2.         AYMAR [II] de Poitiers (-[1250]).  Guillaume and his son Aymar donated property to Sylve-Bénite by charter dated 4 May 1187[629]Seigneur de Boulogne-en-Velay, de Saint-Vincent et de Barrès.  1187.  Comte de Valentinois.  "R dux Narbone comes Tholosanus marchio Provincie" (Raymond de Toulouse Comte de Saint-Gilles), in his capacity of Marquis de Provence, granted "Ademaro de Pictavia" all rights over the county of Diois by charter dated Jun 1189[630].  "Ademarus Pictaviensis comes Valentinus" made a donation to the abbey of Léoncel by charter dated 1192[631].  "Ademari Pictaviensis, comitis Valentinensis" donated property for the soul of his unnamed father "et Guillelmi Pictaviensis eiusdem ecclesie canonici" to Valence Saint-Rufus by charter dated 1200[632].  "Aimar de Poitiers comte de Valentinois et sa femme Philippe" exempted Bonnefoy from pasturage duties “dans leurs terres du mandement de Mezenc” by charter dated 1201[633].  He was opposed to the crusade against the Albigeois, was obliged by the Duke of Burgundy to make peace with Simon de Montfort in 1214, but by 1216 had resumed the armed conflict during which Valentinois was invaded and devastated[634].  "A de Pict[avia] comes Valentinensis" donated property "in villa de Cleu" for the souls of "patrui mei Heust[achii] et anime filii mei Willelmi" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre, Saint-Guy du Puy by charter dated Feb 1227[635].  "Ademarius comes Valantinus" swore homage to "Raimundo domino Comite Tolosæ consanguineo nostro" for "castrum de Bais…castrum Tornon et Privas et Boloinna et Elyer et Durfort et Lacum et Scrinet et sanctum Fortunatum" by charter dated 9 Apr 1239[636].  The precise family relationship between Aymar [II] and Raymond VII Comte de Toulouse has not yet been traced.  m (before 1197) PHILIPPA de Fay Dame de Clérieux, daughter of GUILLAUME JOURDAIN Seigneur de Fay et de Mezenc & his wife Mételline de Clérieux (-[7 Sep 1251/26 Oct 1258]).  "Aimar de Poitiers comte de Valentinois et sa femme Philippe" exempted Bonnefoy from pasturage duties “dans leurs terres du mandement de Mezenc” by charter dated 1201[637].  "Ademarus comes Valentinensis" confirmed the donation of "predecessor meus Heustachius Valentinensis prepositus" of "Clivum" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre, Saint-Guy du Puy by charter dated Jul 1219, naming "Ph[ilippa] uxor comitis et W[illelm]us eorum filius"[638].  "Philippe comtesse de Valentinois" confirmed the donation made in 1179 to Bonnefoy by “son père Guillaume-Jourdain” by charter dated 1249[639].  After her grandson took control of her territories in 1250, she purported to change prior testamentary dispositions and bequeath all her property to her other grandson Roger de Bermond d'Anduze[640], who ceded his rights to the brothers Roger and Silvion de Clérieu on condition that they defend them against Aymar de Poitiers Comte de Valentinois[641].  Comte Aymar [II] & his wife had [four] children: 

a)         SEMNORESSE de Poitiers (-before 21 Nov 1219).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  Her marriage is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[642].  Kerrebrouck[643] says that it is incorrect, but does not give the basis for his doubts.  The dates relating to the first and third wives of Dauphin Guigues VI suggest that the chronology is tight for an intermediate marriage: his first wife reportedly died "after 5 Sep 1215", while his third marriage took place "21 Nov 1219".  However, Julien Chevalier records that dauphin André was obliged to return her dowry to the Comte de Valentinois in 1223 following her death[644]m (after 5 Sep 1215) as his second wife, ANDRE de Bourgogne Comte de Gap et d'Embrun, son of HUGUES III Duke of Burgundy [Capet] & his second wife Béatrix de Viennois (1184-14 Mar 1237, bur Grenoble, église collégiale de Saint-André).  He succeeded his mother in 1228 as Comte d'Albon, Dauphin.

AYMAR de Poitiers, son of CHARLES [II] de Poitiers Seigneur de Saint-Vallier & his wife Anne de Montlaur (-after 9 Sep 1510).  Seigneur de Saint-Vallier.  Counsellor and chamberlain of King Louis XI.  Grand seneschal of Provence 1484-1494.  He was a member of the Council of Regency on the death of Louis XI. 

m firstly (contract Chartres Jun 1467) MARIE bâtarde de France, illegitimate daughter of LOUIS XI King of France & his mistress Marguerite de Sassenage ([1452/55]-[1470]).  Père Anselme names “Marie bâtarde de France” as the second of King Louis’s illegitimate daughters by Marguerite de Sassenage and says that she married “Aymar de Poitiers seigneur de S. Vallier” at Chartres “au mois de juin 1467” when the king gave her “trente mille écus d’or”, adding that she died in childbirth “peu de temps après[841].  He cites no primary sources but his reference to the amount of dowry suggests that the information is based on primary source documentation.  Kerrebrouck suggests that Marie was born [1449/51] and notes that she was legitimated 11 Jul 1467[842].  Assuming 14 years old as an average age for betrothals of noble girls, it is likely that Marie was born [1452/55], which also appears consistent with the birth date of her older sister.
