Chapter 1.    COMTES de BELLEY

 

 

This chapter shows a group of nobles about whom the least is known of all the nobility identified in the kingdom of Burgundy during the late 10th and early 11th centuries.  It includes possible descendants of Louis King [of Provence] (see PROVENCE), the possible ancestors of the counts of Savoy (see SAVOY), and Ermengarde, wife of Rudolf III King of Burgundy.  In each of these cases, the indications of family relationship are discussed below.  It is likely that two distinct families of nobility were involved, those of Comte Amédée and of Comte Humbert, both of whom signed a charter dated to [977], and who, as shown below, were probably related by marriage.  It is therefore likely that only one of these family groups was linked territorially to Belley, although it is not known which.  If that is correct, the territorial attribution of the other family is unknown, as counts named in the primary sources so far consulted in the preparation of the present document have been linked to other local counties which have so far been identified in the southern part of the Burgundian kingdom, with one exception.  The exception is the area which later developed into the county of Savoy, to which no references have been found until the early 13th century when Thomas I Comte de Maurienne appears to have been the first head of his family to have used the title "Comte de Savoie". 

 

 

1.         AMEDEE (-[976/990]).  Comte [de Belley].  "Amedei comitis, Umberti comitis, Arnaldi" witnessed the charter dated to [977] under which Conrad King of Burgundy approved the confirmation by the abbot of Saint-Chaffre of the monastery’s possessions "in pago Diensi atque Valentinensi"[1]m ---.  The name of Amédée’s wife is not known.  Amédée & his wife had [one possible child]: 

a)         [AYMON (-[1050])Bishop of Belley [1032].  "Aymo Bellicensis episcopus" refers to property "ecclesiæ S. Ioannis Baptistæ" held by "pater noster Amedeus", by undated charter[2].  Carutti suggests that Aymon Bishop of Belley was the son of Amédée Comte [de Belley][3].  According to Europäische Stammtafeln, Bishop Aymon was the son of Amédée I "la Queue" Comte de Maurienne (see SAVOY)[4].  This may be based on a manuscript note attached to an undated charter, under which "Amedeus…comes et fratres mei, unacum genitrice nostra Gisla" donated property to the church of Belley "per nostros advocatos…comitem Aimonem Genevensem et Widonem de Mirabello", for the soul of "patris nostri Humberti comitis", states that "Hic Amadeus comes erat Belicensis pater Aimonis episcopi…"[5].  However, this note is incorrect as the donor under this charter was Amédée III Comte de Maurienne who lived about a century after Comte Amédée I.  It is not known whether any other authority exists for asserting that Aymon Bishop of Belley was the son of Amédée I.]

 

2.         --- .  The identify of Adelais’s first husband is not known, but it is possible that he was Comte Amédée referred to above.  If this is correct, it could explain why he and Adelais’s brother jointly signed the charter dated to [977] which is quoted above.  m as her first husband, ADELAIS, daughter of --- (-after [995]).  Rivaz, in his compiled index of Burgundian charters. notes a charter dated [995] under which "Humbert et Adelaide sa sœur, femme du comte Boson et mère du comte Humbert" donated property to Cluny[6].  She married secondly Comte Boson.  One child: 

a)         HUMBERT (-after [995]).  Rivaz, in his compiled index of Burgundian charters. notes a charter dated [995] under which "Humbert et Adelaide sa sœur, femme du comte Boson et mère du comte Humbert" donated property to Cluny[7]same person as…?  HUMBERT ([970/75]-[1 Jul 1047/51], bur Saint-Jean de Maurienne). Prévité-Horton suggests that he was the same person as Humbert "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne.  The various donations of property in the county of Belley made by the counts of Maurienne/Savoy in the mid-11th century do suggest that a relationship with this family of the comtes de Belley is a likely possibility.

Two siblings.  There are at least two possible theories about the parentage of this brother and sister, both of which fit from a chronological and a geographical perspective.  The first is that Humbert was Hubert de Vienne, son of Charles Constantin Comte de Vienne & his wife Teutberga ---.  Local primary sources use the names Hubert/Humbert interchangeably in the late 10th/early 11th century (see the examples quoted below under Humbert [I] "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne).  The second theory, supported in particular by Manteyer, is that he was Humbert, son of Hugues de Troyes & his second wife Willa [of Burgundy].  Manteyer proceeds to identify Humbert as the possible father of Comte Humbert [I] de Maurienne and ancestor of the counts of Savoy[8].  As shown in the present document, it appears more likely that Comte Humbert [I] was the nephew of Humbert Comte [de Belley], assuming that the two were related.  Neither of these possible theories is very satisfactory from an onomastic point of view: none of the typical names in the Troyes family (Hugues, Garnier, Manassès, Thibaut, Willa…) are found among the known descendants of Humbert [I] Comte de Maurienne, and in the case of the Vienne family only Adelais (the name of the mother of Hubert de Vienne) is found from the other typical names (Charles, Teutberga, Richard, Louis…), a name which is not unusual enough to be used as a serious indication of family relationship. 

1.         HUMBERT (-after [995], maybe after 4 Apr 1003)Comte [de Belley].  "Amedei comitis, Umberti comitis, Arnaldi" witnessed the charter dated to [977] under which Conrad King of Burgundy approved the confirmation by the abbot of Saint-Chaffre of the monastery’s possessions "in pago Diensi atque Valentinensi"[9].  "Umberti comitis" subscribed a charter dated May 976 under which "Amalfredus sacerdos" donated property "in villa Medone…et in Sentinatis…et in Casellis villa" to Cluny[10].  Rivaz, in his compiled index of Burgundian charters. notes a charter dated [995] under which "Humbert et Adelaide sa sœur, femme du comte Boson et mère du comte Humbert" donated property to Cluny[11].  "Umberto comitis et uxoris suæ" signed the charter dated 4 Apr 1003 under which Eudes Bishop of Belley granted land "in pago Gratiopolitano in agro Salmojacense"[12].  It is not certain whether this charter relates to Humbert Comte [de Belley] or to his supposed nephew, son of his sister Adelais, Humbert [I] "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne.  [m --- (-after 4 Apr 1003).] 

2.         ADELAIS ([950/60]-after [995]).  Rivaz, in his compiled index of Burgundian charters. notes a charter dated [995] under which "Humbert et Adelaide sa sœur, femme du comte Boson et mère du comte Humbert" donated property to Cluny[13].  If Adelais was the mother of Humbert [I] "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne (see below), she would likely have been born in [950/60].  m firstly ---, son of ---.  m secondly BOSON, son of --- (-after [995]). 

 

 

Two probable siblings, parents not known with certainty.   

The origins of Humbert [I] "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne, first known ancestor of the counts of Savoy, are unproven.  Alternative theories have been proposed: 

·         Manteyer suggests that he was descended from Garnier Comte de Troyes, whose son Hugues may have received part of the county of Vienne, and whose own son Humbert has been postulated (probably incorrectly, see above) as the father of comte Humbert [I][14]

·         Previté-Orton prefers the theory of descent from the local family headed by Amédée Comte [de Belley], living in [977] (see above)[15].  A link between these two groups of families is suggested by the various donations of property in the county of Belley made by Humbert [I] and his descendants (see SAVOY for these donations). 

·         descent from the first kings of Provence.  This proposition is based only on a manuscript note written by d’Hozier in 1675, in a copy of Guichenon’s Histoire généalogique de la maison de Savoie later deposited at the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris, which states that "les chartes qui établissent la descendance de la Maison de Savoie des rois de Provence sont dans les Cartulaires de Saint-Maurice à Vienne"[16].  Presumably such alleged descent would be through Charles Constantin Comte de Vienne, son of Louis King [of Provence], about whose two sons nothing is known apart from their names (see PROVENCE).  No reference to such charters is found in the commentary on the cartulary of Vienne Saint-Maurice published by Ulysse Chevalier, or in the handful of charters themselves which he published[17].  It must be assumed that, if such documentation ever existed, it has since disappeared. 

·         son of "Béraud".  The book of anniversaries of the church of Aosta includes an entry dated 1040 the dating clause of which notes "regnante et principante in Valle nostra Augustæ Salassorum Umberto P. Maurianensi filio illustris Beroldi de Saxonia"[18].  This is the origin favoured by Guichenon after reviewing numerous alternative theories.  In addition to "tradition" in the family, he bases his conclusion on an anachronistic heraldic argument and a supposed common connection with St Maurice.  He identifies Béraud with "Berthold" who is named in two charters of Rudolf III King of Burgundy dated 1016 and 1018 (see the last chapter of the present document).  Guichenon also launches into highly speculative conjecture about the precise origin of Béraud in the families of Widukind and Emperor Otto I (see SAXONY DUKES) which is not worth summarising[19].  Assuming that the Aosta entry is factually correct (it is assumed that it is not contemporary), the reference to "Saxonia" may represent an imperfect transcription.  It is therefore possible that Humbert was the son of a local "comte Béraud" who is otherwise unrecorded. 

It is also possible that Humbert [I] was related to Ermengarde, second wife of Rudolf III King of Burgundy, who appointed him as her representative in administrative dealings relating to her territorial holdings after her husband died.  If this is correct, the family relationship cannot be traced as Queen Ermengarde’s parentage is not known, although the fact that Humbert [I]’s possible sister was also named Ermengarde (see below) may indicate a family connection. 

1.         HUMBERT ([970/75]-1 Jul [1047/51], bur Saint-Jean de Maurienne).  ["Umberto comitis et uxoris suæ" signed the charter dated 4 Apr 1003 under which Eudes Bishop of Belley granted land "in pago Gratiopolitano in agro Salmojacense"[20].  It is not certain whether this charter relates to Humbert [I] "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne or to his supposed maternal uncle Humbert Comte [de Belley].]  "Rodolfus rex" jointly with "…comitibus Rodulpho et Uberto" gave the castle of Moras to "Umberto episcopo eiusque matri domine Freburgie et nepotibus eius, Wigonis bone memorie filiis, Umberto Wigoni Willelmo" by charter dated 6 Jun 1009[21].  Lanter Bishop of Langres granted property "in comitatu Genevensi et pago Albonensi in villa…Casei", except for that part held by "Ermengardis regina", to "nostro amico Humberto comiti et duobus heredibus filiis eius…unus…Amedeus et alter Burchardus episcopus" for life, by charter dated 8 Apr 1022[22].  "Ermengardis, domini Rodulphi regis coniux" founded the monastery of Talloires "in pago Albanense in villa…Talueris", with the advice of "…comitis Umberti", by charter dated to [1025], signed by "Umberti comitis…"[23].  "Donnus Ubertus comes" exchanged property with "Dominum Brocardum Episcopum Augustensis" by charter dated 16 Nov [1026][24].  "Ermengart regina" donated "duos mansos in pago Genevense" to Cluny, for the soul of her late husband Rudolf III King of Burgundy, acting "per advocatum meum comitum Humbertum", by charter dated to [1033/48][25].  It is assumed that this document refers to Comte Humbert, although this is not beyond all doubt.  Saint-Genis (who assumes that the co-identity is correct) suggests that the use of the term "advocatum" in this document indicates that Humbert was administrator of royal lands only and was not a direct fiefholder himself[26].  If this is correct, the title "comes" would have been honorary, linked to his royal appointment rather than territorial holdings.  At first sight the hypothesis of Saint-Genis appears attractive because, if Humbert held no county, his parentage may have been obscure, which could account for the difficulties in tracing his origin.  However, there appears no reason why Humbert could not have held comital jurisdiction over a specific territory at the same time as an appointment as "advocatus" of the queen in relation to her own property.  In any case, all the earlier documents quoted here confirm that Humbert held full comital status, although none of them specify his geographical jurisdiction (which is not unusual for early 11th century charters).  His appointment by Queen Ermengarde as her representative may indicate a family relationship between the two, which cannot now be traced as the queen’s parentage is not known.  "Amedeus filius Uberti comitis et Adaelgida uxor mea" donated "ecclesia S. Mauricii…in pago…Maltacena" to the priory of Bourget by charter dated 22 Oct 1030, signed by "Uberti comitis, Anciliæ uxoris eius, Amedei comitis, Adilæ uxoris eius…Rodulphi regis, reginæ Ermengardis, Odonis, Antelmi"[27].  Humbert recognised the suzerainty of Emperor Konrad II, to whom King Rudolf III bequeathed the kingdom of Burgundy in 1032, and fought against Eudes II Comte de Blois who challenged the emperor’s inheritance[28].  The emperor invested Humbert with Chablais and Saint-Maurice en Valley in 1034 as a reward for his services[29].  From this time, he is taken to have become HUMBERT I "blancis manibus/of the White Hands" Comte de Maurienne, Comte de Chablais.  His nickname appeared for the first time in the 14th century Chronicle of Hautecombe[30].  According to Szabolcs de Vajay, the popular version is a misreading of "blancis moenibus/of the White fortresses"[31].  Saint-Genis suggests that the nickname should be considered the equivalent of "clean hands", indicating Humbert’s honesty in administrative dealings[32].  "Hubertus comes" donated property to the canons of Saint-Jean and Saint-Urse by charter dated 1040, signed and consented to by "Oddo, Amedeus comes, Aymo Sedunensis episcopus, Brochardus filius Huberti comitis, Petrus marchio filius Odonis marchionis et commitissæ"[33].  "Domnus Upertus comes" is named in a charter relating to a church "in loco Scalas quod antiquitus vocatur Lavastrone" dated 21 Jan 1042, signed by "Brochardi archiepiscopi, Aimoni episcopi, Ameei, Oddoni, Orlini et filiorum eius Wigoni, Anselmi, Rostagni, Bornoni…Rostagni"[34].  "Umbertus comes et filii mei Amedeus et Oddo" donated the church "in pago qui antiquitus vocatur Lavastrone…Scalas in episcopati Gratianopolitano" to the abbey of Saint-Chaffre by charter dated 10 Jun 1042, signed by "Brochardi archiepiscopi, Amedei comitis, Oddonis, Bornonis, Aureliani, Rostagni"[35].  "Humbertus comes et Theobaldus episcopus Maurianensis" donated property to the canons of Saint-Jean by charter dated 14 Jun 1046, signed by "Aimonis nepotis eius, Ioannis, Berillonis, Odonis"[36].  "Domni Huberti comitis…" subscribed the charter of "Aymo" (his presumed grandson) dated [1046][37]

2.         [--- .  His/her family connection with Comte Humbert "blancis manibus" is suggested by the charter dated 14 Jun 1046, under which Comte Humbert ("Humbertus comes et Theobaldus episcopus Maurianensis") donated property to the canons of Saint-Jean, signed by "Aimonis nepotis eius, Ioannis, Berillonis, Odonis"[38].  This document suggests that Comte Humbert was the brother of one of Aymon’s parents.  As is shown above, the evidence for the parentage of Humbert’s supposed grandson named Aymon is shaky, which would suggest that "nepos" in this document should be interpreted as nephew.  m ---.]  same person as…?  BURCHARD (-after Jun 1023).  "Borchardus et filius meus Aimo" donated "ecclesiæ Beati Genesii, quæ olim fuit S, Andreæ…in comitatu Beliacensi in pago vel in villa S. Genesii" to Vienne Saint-André, "pro remedio seniorum nostrorum domni regis Gondradi et filii eius domni regis Rodulfi et domne regine Ermengardis, domnique Borchardi archiepiscopi et domni Huberti comitis et uxoris eius Nanchile, seu pro remedio patris et matris mee et comitisse Ermengardis uxoris mee" by charter dated Jun 1023[39].  This charter shows that the donor was not the same person as Burchard, son of Humbert "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne, who is presumably identified as "domni Huberti comitis".  In any case, Humbert’s son is recorded as a bishop in a charter dated 8 Apr 1022.  Nevertheless, there appears to have been a close family relationship between the two, as shown by the charter dated 14 Jun 1046 quoted below, under which "Humbertus comes…" donated property to the canons of Saint-Jean[40], is signed by "Aimonis nepotis eius…".  The signatory is probably identified with Aymon, son of Burchard, which suggests that one of Aymon’s parents was the brother/sister of Comte Humbert.  m [as her second husband,] ERMENGARDE, [widow of --- Comte,] daughter of --- (-after Jun 1023).  "Borchardus et filius meus Aimo" donated "ecclesiæ Beati Genesii, quæ olim fuit S, Andreæ…in comitatu Beliacensi in pago vel in villa S. Genesii" to Vienne Saint-André, "pro remedio seniorum nostrorum domni regis Gondradi et filii eius domni regis Rodulfi et domne regine Ermengardis, domnique Borchardi archiepiscopi et domni Huberti comitis et uxoris eius Nanchile, seu pro remedio patris et matris mee et comitisse Ermengardis uxoris mee" by charter dated Jun 1023[41].  The reference to her as "comitisse Ermengardis" in the [1023] charter suggests that she bore this title in her own right, presumably because she was the widow of a comte before she married Burchard, as neither her husband nor her son used the title "comes" in their own donations.  Burchard & his wife had one child: 

a)         AYMON (-after [1046]).  "Borchardus et filius meus Aimo" donated "ecclesiæ Beati Genesii, quæ olim fuit S, Andreæ…in comitatu Beliacensi in pago vel in villa S. Genesii" to Vienne Saint-André, "pro remedio seniorum nostrorum domni regis Gondradi et filii eius domni regis Rodulfi et domne regine Ermengardis, domnique Borchardi archiepiscopi et domni Huberti comitis et uxoris eius Nanchile, seu pro remedio patris et matris mee et comitisse Ermengardis uxoris mee" by charter dated Jun 1023[42].  "Aymo" donated the church of St Genesius to Saint-André-de-Bas at Vienne, referring to the earlier donation by his unnamed father to the same abbey, by charter dated [1046], subscribed by "domni Huberti comitis, domni Amedei comitis, domni Aimoni Sedunensis episcopi, Odo marchio"[43].  "Aimo filius Burchardi et Ermengardis comitisse" donated property "…loco sepulturo patris mei [et]…in villa Jalzinium" to Saint-André-de-Bas at Vienne, referring to an earlier donation by his unnamed father to the same abbey, by an undated charter[44].  ["Humbertus comes et Theobaldus episcopus Maurianensis" donated property to the canons of Saint-Jean by charter dated 14 Jun 1046, signed by "Aimonis nepotis eius, Ioannis, Berillonis, Odonis"[45].  This document suggests that Humbert "Blancibus Manis" Comte de Maurienne (who was the donor) was the brother of one of Aymon’s parents.  As is shown in the document SAVOY, the evidence for the parentage of Humbert’s supposed grandson named Aymon is shaky, which would suggest that "nepos" in this document should be interpreted as nephew.] 

 

 

1.         ERMENGARDE (-25 or 27 Aug after 1057).  As noted above, a family relationship between Ermengarde Queen of Burgundy and Humbert [I] "blancis manibus" Comte de Maurienne is suggested by her appointment of the latter as her "advocatus" in dealings relating to her property (see charters quoted above).  Ermengarde’s second marriage is confirmed by Thietmar, who records that "King Rudolf's wife" commended to Emperor Heinrich II her two sons, stepsons of her husband, at a meeting at Strasbourg in 1016 but does not name them[46], read together with the charter dated 1019 in which "Ermengarda regina et filii mei Ugo et Willelmus" are named[47].  The Chronicon Hugonis names "Ermengardis" as wife of "Rodulfus rex", specifying that she was childless, but does not give her origin[48].  "Rodolfus…rex" gave "sponsæ meæ Irmingardi" the town and county of Vienne by charter dated 24 Apr 1011[49].  "Rodolfus…rex" names "Irmingarda regina coniuge nostra" in a charter dated 28 Jul 1011[50].  "Rodulfus rex" names "Irmingarda coniuge mea" in a charter dated 14 Jan 1029[51].  A possible indication of her origin is provided by the charter of "Ermengart regina" dated 1033 for the soul of "Rodulfi regis" under which she donated land "in pago Genevense" to Cluny[52], although it is impossible to confirm any relationship with the families of the counts of Geneva whose earliest attested male progenitor is Gerold Count of Geneva who, if related to Ermengarde, would have belonged to a subsequent generation.  "Ermengardis regina" donated property "…loco sepulture patris mei [et]…in villa Jalzinium" to Saint-André-de-Bas at Vienne "pro redemptione animis senioris mei Radulfi regis" by an undated charter[53].  "Ermengarda vidua regina, uxor quondam Rodulfi regis" made a donation to the church of Grenoble by charter dated 20 Sep 1057[54].  The necrology of Savigny records the death "VIII Kal Sep" of "Ermengardis regina Vienne que dedit Tallueriensem"[55].  The Aymari Rivalli De Allobrogibus records the death "VI Kal Sep" of "Ermengarda uxor Rodulphi regis" and her burial at Vienne[56]m firstly --- (-before 1011).   The identity of Ermengarde’s first husband is not known.  Europäische Stammtafeln[57] identifies him as Rotbald [II] Comte de Provence, son of Boson [II] Comte d'Arles & his wife Constantia [de Vienne]. Presumably this is based on the charter dated 1019 which is signed by "Ermengarda regina et filii mei Ugo et Willelmus"[58], assuming that "Willelmus" was the same person as Guillaume [V] Comte de Provence, son of Comte Rotbald [II].  However, this co-identity is far from satisfactory.  There are two main problems.  Firstly, the sons are ordered "Ugo et Willelmus" in the 1019 document, which suggests that Hugues was the older son.  However, no other reference has been found to Comte Guillaume [V] having an older brother named Hugues, which in any case is not a name which is found in the family of the comtes de Provence.  Secondly, Comte Guillaume [V] is named with his wife in a charter dated 992 which, if correctly dated, shows that he could not have been born much later than [975].  If that is correct, his mother would have been too old in 1011 to have married King Rudolf III, who was presumably hoping for an heir as he was childless by his first marriage.  Europäische Stammtafeln appears to find a way around these difficulties by stating that Ermengarde was the wife of "Rotbald [III]" who, it says, was the son of Comte Rotbald [II][59].  However, no primary source has been found which confirms that this Rotbald [III] Comte de Provence ever existed.  m secondly ([24 Apr/28 Jul] 1011) as his second wife, RUDOLF III King of Burgundy, of CONRAD I "le Pacifique" King of Burgundy [Welf] & his second wife Mathilde de France [Carolingian] (-5/6 Sep 1032, bur Lausanne Cathedral).  Ermengarde & her first husband had two children: 

a)         HUGUES (-after 1019).  "Ermengarda regina et filii mei Ugo et Willelmus" signed a charter dated 1019[60].  Thietmar records that "King Rudolf's wife" commended to Emperor Heinrich II her two sons, stepsons of her husband, at a meeting at Strasbourg in 1016 but does not name them[61].  The identification of these two brothers as the sons of Comte Rotbald [II] assumes that Comte Rotbald’s supposed third wife Ermengarde married secondly Rudolf III King of Burgundy, which as explained above is not proven beyond doubt. 

b)         GUILLAUME (-after 1019).  "Ermengarda regina et filii mei Ugo et Willelmus" signed a letter dated 1019[62].  Thietmar records that "King Rudolf's wife" commended to Emperor Heinrich II her two sons, stepsons of her husband, at a meeting at Strasbourg in 1016 but does not name them[63].  The identification of these two brothers as the sons of Comte Rotbald [II] assumes that Comte Rotbald’s supposed third wife Ermengarde married secondly Rudolf III King of Burgundy, which as explained above is not proven beyond doubt.  As far as Guillaume is concerned, it seems unlikely that he was the same person as Guillaume [V] Comte de Provence who, as a middle-aged adult, would not have needed to be "commended" to the emperor by his wife in 1016.  In any case, it seems unlikely that Rotbald would have given the name Guillaume to the second of the sons when his older half-brother, the future Guillaume [V] Comte de Provence, was still alive as shown above. 

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2.    SEIGNEURS de BÂGÉ [BAUGÉ]

 

 

1.         RATHER, son of ---.  m TRISBURGA ---.  "Ratherium [et]…Trisburgis uxori sue" donated land in "pago Matisconensium" to Cluny by charter dated 4 Oct 957[64].  Rather & his wife had one child:

a)         TETBERT .  "Teutbertus filius eorum" subscribed the charter dated 4 Oct 957 of "Ratherium [et]…Trisburgis uxori sue"[65]same person as …?  TETBERT .  "Vir nobilissimus Teotbertus…uxoris sue Rannodi et filio eorum Udelrico" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [971/77][66].  There is no indication in the document that this was the same person as the son of Rather and Trisburga apart from the name, and also that one of the sons of Tetbert and Raimodis was named Rather.  m RAIMODIS, daughter of --- (-[980]).  "Teotbertus et uxor sua Raimodis" donated property "in pago Lugdunense in agro Balgiacense…villa Curte" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [971/77][67].  Tetbert & his wife had two children: 

i)          ULRIC [I] [Olry] (-1018 or after).  "Vir nobilissimus Teotbertus…uxoris sue Rannodi et filio eorum Udelrico" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [971/77][68]

-         see below.   

ii)         RATHER .  "Ratherio fratri suo qui concessit" subscribed a charter dated 2 Sep 994 under which "Uldricus" granted property "in pago Matisconense…villa Morincas…[et] in pago Lugdunensi…ecclesiam…sancti Martini" to "sponse meæ Ermengarda"[69]same person as…?  RATHER .  "Rotherius et uxor mea Berta" donated property "in pago Matisconense in agro Potiaco in villa Frontiniace" to Cluny by charter dated Mar 993[70].  There is no indication in the document that this was the same person as the brother of Ulric [I] apart from the relatively unusual name.  m BERTHA, daughter of ---.  "Rotherius et uxor mea Berta" donated property "in pago Matisconense in agro Potiaco in villa Frontiniace" to Cluny by charter dated Mar 993[71]

 

 

ULRIC [I] [Olry], son of TETBERT & his wife Raimodis --- (-1018 or after).  "Vir nobilissimus Teotbertus…uxoris sue Rannodi et filio eorum Udelrico" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [971/77][72].  "Udulrici filii eorum" subscribed the charter dated to [971/77] under which "Teotbertus et uxor sua Raimodis" donated property "in pago Lugdunense in agro Balgiacense…villa Curte" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[73], which confirms that he held land in Bâgé although no evidence has so far been found that he was "Seigneur de Bâgé".  "Udelrici filii Tetberti, Udelrici pueri filii eius" subscribed the charter dated 1018 under which "Adalardus…sacerdos" donated property "in pago Matisconensi" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[74]

[m firstly AREMBURG, daughter of ---.  "Aremburgis" donated property to Cluny "in pago Lugdunensi villa…Pratum Borsanum in agro Balgiaco" by charter dated Nov 993 subscribed by "Vulrici senioris eius"[75].  As pointed out below (see Ulric [II]), difficulties in interpreting the charters which name the sons of Ulrich [I] would be resolved if the latter in fact only married once.  If this is correct, either "Vulrici" who subscribed this 993 charter was not Ulrich [I] or "Aremburgis" is simply a mistranscription for "Ermengardis".] 

m [secondly] (before 3 Sep 994) ERMENGARD, daughter of ---.  "Ulricus et Ermengardis uxor mea" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [996/1031][76].  "Udulricus cum uxore mea Ermengardi" donated property "in pago Matisconensi in agro Iggiacensis in villa Verriaco" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon at the request of "filio meo Walterio canonicale" by undated charter[77].  "Uldricus" granted property "in pago Matisconense…villa Morincas…[et] in pago Lugdunensi…ecclesiam…sancti Martini" to "sponse meæ Ermengarda" by charter dated 2 Sep 994 subscribed by "Ratherio fratri suo qui concessit"[78].  "Coniuge mee Ermengardi" is named in the charter dated to [1004/19] under which "Udulricus vir eius" granted property "in pago Lugdunensi sive Matisconensi…in villa Balgiaco…ecclesia…sancti Michaelis" to Cluny[79]

Ulric [I] & his [second] wife had two children: 

1.         ULRIC [II] (-[1026/31]).  "Ulrici filii mei" subscribed the charter dated to [996/1031] under which "Ulricus et Ermengardis uxor mea" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[80].  "Udelrici filii Tetberti, Udelrici pueri filii eius" subscribed the charter dated 1018 under which "Adalardus…sacerdos" donated property "in pago Matisconensi" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[81].  If Ulrich was "puer" in 1018, it is likely that he was born from his father's [second] marriage, assuming that the date of this marriage is correct as shown above.  On the other hand, the fact that he was described as "filii mei" rather than "filii nostrorum" in the charter dated to [996/1031] could suggest that Ermengard was not his mother.  The issue is further complicated by the undated charter under which "Udulricus cum uxore mea Ermengardi" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon at the request of "filio meo Walterio canonicale"[82] which also suggests that Gauthier was born from his father's supposed earlier marriage as well.  This, however, appears incompatible with Ulric [II] (presumably the older brother) having succeeded his father.  These difficulties would be resolved if Ulric [I] in fact only married once, as discussed above.  Ulric [II]'s date of death is estimated based on an interpretation of the charter of his supposed wife Beatrix (see below).  m [BEATRIX, daughter of ---.  "Beatrix" granted property "in villa Clitgiaci [iuxta] terra vicecomitis Wigonis" to Cluny for the soul of "senioris mei Ulrici" by charter dated to [996/1031][83].  It is probable that "Ulrici" was Ulrich [II] but this is not certain.  This charter is subscribed by "Ottonis comitis".  It is likely that this refers to Otton [II], who succeeded as Comte de Mâcon after the 1026 death of his father, the latter normally subscribing charters jointly with his wife.  If this is correct, the charter should be dated to [1026/31] which is presumably consistent with this being a donation after the death of Ulric [II].  If Ulric [II] was "puer" in 1018, he must still have been young at the time of his supposed marriage.]  Ulric [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)         ULRIC [III] de Bâgé (-after 19 Jan 1074).  His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 19 Jan 1074 under which "Hulricus de Balgie, Beatricis filius" donated property to Tournus abbey[84]Seigneur de Bâgé.  "Udulricus [dominus] de Balgiaco" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon by charter dated to [1074/96][85].  The dating suggests that this must have been a different person from Ulric [II].  However, there is nothing in the document which proves that Ulric [III] was the son of Ulric [II], although this is probably correct.  If this is so, he was probably an infant when his father died.  According to Bouchard[86], Ulric [III] was the father of Ulric [IV] although according to Europäische Stammtafeln[87] the latter was the son of Josseran de Bâgé. 

2.         GAUTHIER .  "Udulricus cum uxore mea Ermengardi" donated property "in pago Matisconensi in agro Iggiacensis in villa Verriaco" to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon at the request of "filio meo Walterio canonicale" by undated charter[88]

 

 

1.         RODOLPHE, son of ---.  He is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln as Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse[89], but there is no indication how he may have been related to the previous family, if at all.  The primary sources which confirms his existence and that of his son and grandson have not been identified.  m ---.  The name of Rodolphe's wife is not known.  Rodolphe & his wife had one child: 

a)         RAYMOND [Renaud] (-1072).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse.  m ---.  The name of Raymond's wife is not known.  Raymond & his wife had one child:

i)          JOSSERAN (-1110).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse. 

 

 

According to Bouchard[90], Ulric [IV] was the son of Ulric [III] de Bâgé (see above).  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[91], he was the son of Josseran de Bâgé.  The basis for these speculations is not known, but the apparent continuation of the names Renaud and Josseran in the family suggest a close relationship.  Another possibility is that the lordship of Bâgé was transmitted from one family to the other through marriage. 

[six or more] brothers and sisters: 

1.         ULRIC [IV] de Bâgé (-after 1125)Seigneur de Bâgé.  He became a crusader in 1120, and a Benedictine monk in 1125.  m ---, daughter of Comte AMEDEE & his wife ---.  The 1118 charter of "Ulricus [de Balgiaco] et filii sui Ulricus et Rainaldus", relating to donations of property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon, also refers to "domina vero domni Uldrici uxor" without naming her[92].  The primary source which names her father has not been identified.  According to Europäische Stammtafeln[93], she was --- de Savoie, daughter of AMEDEE I Comte de Savoie & his wife Jeanne [de Genève].  This seems difficult to support chronologically, in light of the dates of death of two of the sons of Ulric de Bâgé (1180 and 1184 respectively) which suggests that it is unlikely that they were born much before 1100.  If her father was a count of Savoy (as suggested by the name Amédée), it is more likely that he was Amédée II.  Ulric [IV] & his wife had five children: 

a)         ULRIC de Bâgé .  1113.  "Ulricus [de Balgiaco] et filii sui Ulricus et Rainaldus" are named in a charter dated "VI Id Apr" 1118 which relates to donations of property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[94]

b)         RENAUD [II] de Bâgé (-1153).  "Ulricus [de Balgiaco] et filii sui Ulricus et Rainaldus" are named in a charter dated "VI Id Apr" 1118 which relates to donations of property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[95]Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse.  "Raynaldus de Baugiaco" donated property to Montmerle, with the consent of "uxore mea et filiis meis Ulrico…atque Raynaudo", by undated charter[96]m ---.  The name of the wife of Renaud [II] is not known.  Renaud [II] & his wife had two children: 

i)          ULRIC de Bâgé (-before 1153).  "Raynaldus de Baugiaco" donated property to Montmerle, with the consent of "uxore mea et filiis meis Ulrico…atque Raynaudo", by undated charter[97].   

ii)         RENAUD [III] de Bâgé (-1180, bur église de la Musse[98]).  "Raynaldus de Baugiaco" donated property to Montmerle, with the consent of "uxore mea et filiis meis Ulrico…atque Raynaudo", by undated charter[99]Seigneur de Bâgém ---.  The name of the wife of Renaud [III] is not known.  Renaud [III] & his wife had two children:

(a)       ULRIC [V] de Bâgé (-before 1220).  "Raynaldi Balgiacensis…et Ulricus filius eius" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the former's burial by charter dated to [1167/84], subscribed by "Artaldi vicecomitis"[100]Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse. 

-         see below

(b)       GUY de Bâgé (-after 22 Mar 1180).  "Ulricus dominus Balgiacensis…Guido dominus Balgiacensis" confirmed donations to Seillon made by "pater meus dominus Rainaldus", by charter dated 22 Mar 1180[101]

c)         BLANDIN de Bâgé .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  1152. 

d)         HUMBERT de Bâgé (-12 Oct or 13 Nov 1180).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.    Bishop of Autun 1140/1148.  Archbishop of Lyon 1148, resigned [1157].  Cartusian Prior at Seillon.  The 13th century obituary of the Eglise primatiale de Lyon records the death "IV Id Oct" of "Humbertus, Valle Sancte Marie monachus et quondam Lugdunensis archiepiscopus"[102]

e)         ETIENNE de Bâgé (-19 Mar 1184).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Bishop of Mâcon 1167. 

2.         HUGUES de Bâgé .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.    Canon at Mâcon 1120. 

3.         [JOSSERAN de Bâgé (-[1131/43] or after).  The 1118 charter of "Ulricus [de Balgiaco] et filii sui Ulricus et Rainaldus", relating to donations of property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon, is subscribed by "Gausceranno decano"[103].  The document gives no indication of any relationship with the Bâgé family.  However, such a connection is suggested by "Gausceranus de Balgiaco" witnessing two other charters, dated 1116 and dated to [1131/43] respectively, which record donations of property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon[104].] 

4.         ETIENNE de Bâgé (-7 Jan 1140).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.    Bishop of Autun 1112/1136.  Monk at Cluny 1136. 

5.         daughter .  The 1118 charter of "Ulricus [de Balgiaco] et filii sui Ulricus et Rainaldus", relating to donations of property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon, also refers to "sororibus suis" without naming them or indicating how many sisters there were[105]

6.         daughter .  The 1118 charter of "Ulricus [de Balgiaco] et filii sui Ulricus et Rainaldus", relating to donations of property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon, also refers to "sororibus suis" without naming them or indicating how many sisters there were[106]

 

 

ULRIC [V] de Bâgé, son of RENAUD [III] Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse & his wife --- (-before 1220).  "Raynaldi Balgiacensis…et Ulricus filius eius" donated property to Saint-Vincent-de-Mâcon for the former's burial by charter dated to [1167/84], subscribed by "Artaldi vicecomitis"[107]Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse.  "Ulricus dominus Balgiacensis…Guido dominus Balgiacensis" confirmed donations to Seillon made by "pater meus dominus Rainaldus", by charter dated 22 Mar 1180[108].  "Ulricus dominus Balgiacensis" donated property to Seillon, for the soul of "domina de Miribel uxoris sua iam defuncta", by charter dated 23 Mar 1187[109]

m firstly ([1176/77]) as her second husband, ALIX de Chalon [dame de Miribel], widow of JOSSERAND [IV] Grossus Seigneur de Brancion, daughter of GUILLAUME [II] Comte de Chalon & his wife --- (-before 23 Mar 1187).  Her parentage is indicated, and her first marriage confirmed, by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names "Henricum, patrem Iosceranni Grossi" as the son of "Iosceranum" and "sorore comitis Cabilonensis"[110].  From a chronological point of view, her first marriage dated to 1164 suggests that she must have been the daughter of Comte Guillaume [II].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to [1203/15] which records an agreement between "dominam de Brantione et filios eius…Bernardus Grossus et Guillelmus Grossus…Ulricus de Baugiaco maritus domine de Brancione" and Cluny, brokered by "episcopo Cabilonensis et…domina Beatrix comitissa Cabilonensi"[111]Europäische Stammtafeln[112] names Ulric's first wife as Alix de Chalon (married in 1198), specifying that she was "dame de Miribel".  The first husband of Alix de Chalon died in [1175], which places her second marriage in the right timeframe to have been the mother of Guy and therefore Ulric [V]'s first wife.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and her two marriages has not been identified.  Bouchard records the first wife of Ulric [V] as "dame de Mirebeau" (died 1187 or before) and speculates that she may have been Elisabeth, daughter of Odo Seigneur de Mirebeau & his wife Aegidia ---, who is named with her parents in 1174[113].  Presumably this is based on the charter dated 23 Mar 1187 under which her husband "Ulricus dominus Balgiacensis" donated property to Seillon, for the soul of "domina de Miribel uxoris sua iam defuncta"[114].  It is not known which "Mirebeau" this is.  However, the reference to her husband's great-granddaughter Simone [Sibylle] de Bâgé (wife of Amédée V Count of Savoy, see below) succeeding as "dame de Miribel-en-Forez" suggests that the place may have been a different "Mirebeau" from the one of which Odo was seigneur.  The necrology of Saint-Pierre, Lyon records the death "XVII Kal Jul" of "Alis domina de Miribello"[115]

m secondly (1188) ALEXANDRINE de Vienne, daughter of GERARD [I] Comte de Mâcon, [titular] Comte de Vienne [Bourgogne-Comté] & his wife Maurette de Salins (-after 1242).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not been identified.  Europäische Stammtafeln[116] names Ulric's first wife as Alix de Chalon (married in 1198), specifying that she was "dame de Miribel", and his second wife as Alexandrine de Vienne.  Bouchard names Ulric's second wife as Alix de Chalon. 

Ulric [V] & his [first] wife had one child: 

1.         GUY de Bâgé ([1177/79]-[1219], bur l’Isle-Barbe).  "Guido filius Ulrici de Baugiaco, dominus Miribelli" donated property to Portes by charter dated 1214[117].  Guy was presumably born from his father's first marriage as his daughter is also recorded as dame de Miribel, although it is true that the seigneurie was ultimately inherited by the descendants of Guy's younger brother Renaud [IV] who appears to have been born from his father's second marriage.  Seigneur de Bâgé.  He died on pilgrimage.  His place of burial is confirmed by the charter dated Jul 1229 which records an agreement between his daughter "Margarita domina Bellijoci" and the abbot of l’Isle-Barbe regarding "rebus ad castelli Miribelli", donated by "Guigo de Balgiaco dominus Miribelli" for his burial at the abbey[118]m ---.  The name of Guy's wife is not known.  Guy & his wife had two children: 

a)         ULRIC [VI] de Bâgé .  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified. 

b)         MARGUERITE de Bâgé (-20 Dec before Mar 1252)Dame de Miribel.  The marriage contract of "Guido de Balgiaco…filiam meam primogenitam Margaritam" and "Humberto de Bellijoco" is dated 18 Jul 1218[119].  A charter dated Jul 1229 records an agreement between "Margarita domina Bellijoci" and the abbot of l’Isle-Barbe regarding "rebus ad castelli Miribelli", donated by "Guigo de Balgiaco dominus Miribelli" for his burial at the abbey[120].  The Anniversary Book of Notre-Dame de Beaujeu records the death "XIII Kal Jan" of "Marguarita domina Bellijocis"[121]m (contract 18 Jul 1218) HUMBERT [V] Seigneur de Beaujeu, son of GUICHARD [IV] Seigneur de Beaujeu & his wife Sibylle de Hainaut (-Egypt 25 Jul 1250, bur Cluny). 

Ulric [V] & his second wife had three children:

4.         BEATRIX de Bâgé (-after 23 Nov 1251).  The marriage contract of "Amedeus dominus de Gez" and "Beatricem filiam domini de Baugiaco" is dated 4 Jun 1227 and names "Rainoldo de Baugiaco fratri meo"[122].  "Amedeus dominus de Gex" granted compensation to the bishopric of Geneva for the wrongs which he had committed, with the consent of "Dne Beatricis uxoris sue", by charter dated 30 Jul 1236[123].  "Leoneta filia et heres…Amedei quondam domini de Jaiz" promised not to marry without the consent of "D. Petro de Sabaudia", with the consent of "D. Willelmi comitis Vyenensis tutoris mei", by charter dated 23 Nov 1251, witnessed by "…G. domini de Baugis et domine B matris mee"[124]m (before 4 Jun 1227) AMEDEE Seigneur de Gex, son of AMEDEE de Genève Seigneur de Gex & his wife Poncia de Thoire (-14 or 16 Feb 1247). 

 

 

RENAUD [IV] de Bâgé, son of ULRIC [V] Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse & his second wife Alexandrine de Vienne [Bourgogne-Comté] (-before Mar 1250).  The primary source which confirms his parentage has not been identified.  Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse.  Testaments dated 18 Aug 1249 and (in Egypt) 29 Mar 1250[125]

m (1 Jan 1229) as her first husband, SIBYLLE de Beaujeu, daughter of GUICHARD [V] Seigneur de Beaujeu & his wife Sibylle de Hainaut (before 1216-1 Aug 1265, bur St Vincent de Mâcon).  "Guichardus Belli Joci dominus" names his daughters "Agnetam primogenitam nostram…filiam autem nostram Margaritam…Philippam autem filiam nostram…minorem autem filiam nostram Sibillam" in his testament dated 18 Sep 1216[126].  The marriage contract of "Humbertus dominus Bellijoci…Sibillam sororem meam" and "Rainaldo domino Balgiaco" is dated Jan 1229[127]She married secondly Pierre "le Gros" de Brancion Seigneur de Visargent.  The death of "comitissa de Balgiaco uxor quondam Petri le Gros" is recorded "1265 Kal Aug" and her burial at Saint-Vincent de Mâcon is recorded in an epitaph at the abbey[128]

Renaud [IV] & his wife had six children: 

1.         GUY [II] de Bâgé (-[5 Apr/20 Oct] 1255, bur Saint-André hors de Bâgé).  He succeeded his father in 1251 as Seigneur de Bâgé et de Bresse, under the tutorship of Philippe de Savoie Archbishop of Lyon.  “Guido dominus Baugiaci miles et Raynaudys domicellus fratres” granted franchises to Bourg, in accordance with the wishes of “domini Raynaudi patris nostri” who had recently died “in partibus transmarinis”, with the consent of “amicis nostris...domino Philippo...Lugduni ecclesiæ electo”, by charter dated Mar 1250[129].  "Leoneta filia et heres…Amedei quondam domini de Jaiz" promised not to marry without the consent of "D. Petro de Sabaudia", with the consent of "D. Willelmi comitis Vyenensis tutoris mei", by charter dated 23 Nov 1251, witnessed by "…G. domini de Baugis et domine B matris mee"[130].  Testament dated 5 Apr 1255.  m as her second husband, DAUPHINE de Saint-Bonnet, widow of GUY de Damas Seigneur de Couzan, Vicomte de Chalon, daughter of JOSSERAND Seigneur de Saint-Bonnet & his wife Peytavine --- (-1287, bur Mâcon Frères Mineurs).  Guichenon, in his Histoire de Savoie, names "Dauphine de Lavieu Dame de Saint-Bonnet-le-Château et de Miribel-en-Forêts…fille unique et héritière de René de Lavieu, chevalier, seigneur de Saint-Bonnet et de Miribel et de Jordaine --- sa femme" as the wife of Guy [II] Seigneur de Bâgé[131].  Edouard Perroy comments that "La Mure, Guichenon, Le Laboureur et le Père Anselme" incorrectly stated that the Saint-Bonnet family was an older branch of the Lavieu family, based on the imaginary "baronnie de Lavieu" which was invented in the 16th century by "le juriste Papon", and in turn invented "René de Lavieu seigneur de Saint-Bonnet, père de Dauphine" and other persons to fit into the scheme[132].  He confirms that Dauphine was the daughter of "Jocerand et nièce héritière de Robert de Saint-Bonnet".  She married thirdly ([1255/59]) Jean [I] Seigneur de Châtillon-en-Bazois et de La Roche-Milay.  The primary source which confirms her third marriage has not been identified.  She married fourthly ([1271/72]) Pierre Seigneur de la Roue"Dauphine dame de Saint-Bonnet", on the marriage of "sa fille Sibille avec Amédée de Savoie seigneur de Bâgé", granted "le château de Miribel en Forez" to her daughter by charter dated May 1275[133].  "Dauphine dame de Saint-Bonnet le Château, femme de Pierre de la Roue chevalier" confirmed her donation of "le château de Miribel en Forez" to her daughter "Sibille femme d’Amédée de Savoie seigneur de Bâgé" by charter dated Mar 1276[134].  [Many secondary sources state that the wife of Guy [II] de Bâgé was (as her second husband) Beatrice di Monferrato, widow of André Comte d’Albon "Dauphin" [Bourgogne-Capet], daughter of Guglielmo V Marchese di Monferrato & his second wife Berta di Clavesana.  Guichenon, in his Histoire de Savoie, explains the background to this error, recording that "Pingon, du Buttet, du Chesne et les sainte Marthe…moi après eux" confused the name "Dauphine", under which Guy’s widow is recorded (in the charters quoted above) with the title "Dauphine [de Viennois]"[135], the widow of André Comte d’Albon being the only available person with that title.  Guichenon’s original error was contained in his Histoire de Bresse et de Bugey[136], although he corrected it in an appendix to his Histoire de Dombes[137].  The various issues relating to the identity of the wife of Guy [II] were discussed in Héraldique et Généalogie[138].]  Guy [II] & his wife had one child: 

a)         SIMONE [Sibylle] de Bâgé (posthumously [Apr/20 Oct] 1256-28 Feb 1294).  A charter dated 7 Jul 1272 records that "Alexander filius quondam domini Reynaudi domini quondam Baugiaci" appointed "dominus Philippus Sabuadiæ et Burgundiæ comes" as his heir, that "Reynaudus frater Alexandri" had died intestate, that "Sybillam filiam quondam domini Guidonis domini quondam Baugiaci fratris quondam dictorum Alexandri et Reynaudi" claimed the inheritance, and sets out the settlement of the dispute[139]Dame de Bâgé et de Bresse.  "Dauphine dame de Saint-Bonnet", on the marriage of "sa fille Sibille avec Amédée de Savoie seigneur de Bâgé", granted "le château de Miribel en Forez" to her daughter by charter dated May 1275[140].  Dame de Miribel-en-Forez 1276.  The testament of "Sibilla comitissa Sabaudiæ, dominaque Baugiaci, uxor…domini Amedei comitis Sabaudiæ" dated 1294 grants bequests to "amitæ nostræ et religiosæ dominæ Sy. moniali Beatæ Mariæ de Lilio…patruum nostrum Alexandrum de Baugiaco…domino Hugone de Castellione filio domini de Castellione in Bazas canonico Lugdunensi fratri nostro…maritus noster dominus Amedeus comes Sabaudiæ…filiæ nostræ Elyonori, Guillermo comiti Altissiodorensi eius marito…filiæ nostræ Margaretæ…filiæ nostræ Agneti…filio nostro Aymoni…filium nostrum Eduardum…in pupillari ætate…illum quem gestamus in utero"[141]m (5 Jul 1272) as his first wife, AMEDEE de Savoie, son of THOMAS II Conte [Marchese] del Piemonte & his second wife Beatrice Fieschi (Bourget du Lac [1253]-Avignon 16 Oct 1323).  He succeeded his uncle in 1285 as AMEDEE V "le Grand" Comte de Savoie

The article in Héraldique et Généalogie suggests that Jean de Montluel named below was the son of Guy de Montluel (named above) “d’un 1er lit inconnu (ou de Marguerite Allemand?)”, noting the absence of any primary source confirming this affiliation[409].  This speculation seems unlikely to be correct.  The absence of male Montluel descendants from the extract of the 15 Feb 1320 testament of Guy de Montluel’s widow does suggest that she was not their ancestor, which in turn suggests that Guy’s successor was born from an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage.  However, the chronology of Jean’s life indicates the unlikelihood that he was Guy’s son born before 1268.  The probable explanation is that Jean was Guy’s grandson, born to an unknown son from an earlier marriage who succeeded his father but whose existence is not reflected in the surviving primary sources.

ETIENNE [II] de Thoire, son of ETIENNE [I] Seigneur de Thoire & his wife Agnes de Villars (-[Mar 1254/19 Oct 1255], bur Saint-Claude)Seigneur de Thoire et Villars.  [“Stephanus dictus dominus de Vilars” renounced rights in favour of la Platière by charter dated Oct 1236[467].  It is not known whether this document refers to Etienne [I] or Etienne [II].]  Emperor Friedrich II confirmed to “Stephanus de Villariis” the grant made by the emperor’s father to “Humberto de Thoiria prædecessori eius tempore regni sui”, confirming “de feudo suo quod quondam Stephanus pater eius a nobis et imperio tenuit”, by charter dated Oct 1238[468].  A charter dated 11 Aug 1242 records the settlement of disputes between "Bonifacium de Sabaudia electrum Bellicensem" and "Stephanum dom de Villar", naming "Humb. de Vileta…Aymard de Brianzon…" among the guarantors[469].  The Chronicle of Chassagne abbey records that “Agnes de Villari, Stephani de Thoire et de Villars militis mater” donated “decimam apud Marlieu” to Chassagne, with the consent of “Humberti de Villars filii Stephani predicti”, and in 1242 donated “mansum et molendinum de Felicieu Liberum et mansum de Chastellard”, and noting that “hæc autem Agnes” was “filia domini Stephani de Villars huius abbatis fundatoris et uxor domini Stephani de Thoire militis[470].  “Etienne sire de Thoire et de Villars” sold property “en la paroisse de Reyrieu” to “Guichard de Frans (Frenz) chevalier” by charter dated Jun 1246[471]A charter dated late-Oct 1248 records a judgment in favour of Etienne [II] against the priory of Nantua, Guichenon indicating that he died “peu de jours après” and was buried “en l’abbaye de Sainct Claude en Comté[472].  The charter dated Mar 1253 (O.S.) quoted below under his wife shows that Etienne was still living at that date, presumably incapacitated in some way as his wife was acting as his representative[473].  He is named as deceased in the 19 Oct 1255 charter quoted below. 

m (after Feb 1234) BEATRIX de Faucigny, daughter of AYMON [II] Seigneur de Faucigny & his wife Beatrix de Bourgogne-Comté (-after May 1279).  The testament of "Aymo dominus Fuciniaci" is dated Feb 1234, appoints "Agnetem filiam suam", betrothed to "Petro de Sabaudia filio condam Thome Comit. Sabaud.", as his heir in default of male heirs, and reserves the dowry of "alterius filiarum suarum Beatricis"[474].  “Guichard sire de Beaujeu” and “Béatrix dame de Thoire et de Villars...représentant son mari et son fils mineur” agreed the fiefs held by the latter from the former by charter dated Mar 1253 (O.S.)[475].  A charter dated 19 Oct 1255 records that "Beatricis relicte Stephani domini de Thoire et Villars" transferred property inherited from "patris earumdem sororum" to "Agnetis sororis eiusdem Beatrice et uxoris dicti Petri de Sabaudia", at the request of "Petri de Sabaudia"[476].  “Jehans cuens de Borgoigne et sires de Salins” notified “sa...nyepce Biétrix dame de Vilars et à Humbert son filz” that, after his death, they would owe homage to “Hugon conte palatin de Borgoigne nostre ainsnez filz” by charter dated Mar 1260[477].  The testament of "Agnetis dominæ Fuciniaci", dated 9 Aug 1268, made bequests to "dominæ Beatrici dominæ de Thoria et Villario sorori suæ et filiis suis…Simoni de Joinville dom. de Jaiz fratri suo"[478].  "Humbertus dominus de Thoire et de Villars" reached agreement with the priory of Nantua, with the consent of "Henricus de Villars canonicus Lugdunensis et Beatrix domina de Thoire mater dictorum Humberti et Henrici", by charter dated 22 Aug 1270[479].  Dame d’Aubonne: Guerry Seigneur d’Aubonne ceded the seigneurie d’Aubonne 23 Aug 1259 to Pierre Comte de Savoie, whose daughter Beatrix transferred it to her maternal aunt Beatrix de Faucigny, mother of Humbert [III] Seigneur de Thoire et Villars, as a result of the judgment of Edmund, son of Henry III King of England, dated 3 Aug 1271[480]Europäische Stammtafeln states that Béatrix died after May 1279[481].  The source which corresponds to this date has not been identified. 

Etienne [II] & his wife had children: 

1.         HUMBERT [III] ([after 1235]-14 May 1301, bur Saint-Claude).  The Chronicle of Chassagne abbey records that [his paternal grandmother] “Agnes de Villari, Stephani de Thoire et de Villars militis mater” donated “decimam apud Marlieu” to Chassagne, with the consent of “Humberti de Villars filii Stephani predicti”, and in 1242 donated “mansum et molendinum de Felicieu Liberum et mansum de Chastellard[482].  The following document shows that Humbert [III] was still a minor at the time: “Guichard sire de Beaujeu” and “Béatrix dame de Thoire et de Villars...représentant son mari et son fils mineur” agreed the fiefs held by the latter from the former by charter dated Mar 1253 (O.S.)[483]Seigneur de Thoire et Villars.  The Chronicle of Chassagne abbey records that “Humbertus de Thoire et de Villars” granted duty exemptions to “homines abbatiæ” for using “terra sua de Villars” 3 Jan 1260[484].  “Jehans cuens de Borgoigne et sires de Salins” notified “sa...nyepce Biétrix dame de Vilars et à Humbert son filz” that, after his death, they would owe homage to “Hugon conte palatin de Borgoigne nostre ainsnez filz” by charter dated Mar 1260[485].  The Chronicle of Chassagne abbey records that the abbey settled disputes with “Humberto de Thoire et Humberto filio eius, comite Gebennensi” concerning “justitia de Chassagnia et pro pedagio portus de Loya” in 1270[486].  "Humbertus dominus de Thoire et de Villars" reached agreement with the priory of Nantua, with the consent of "Henricus de Villars canonicus Lugdunensis et Beatrix domina de Thoire mater dictorum Humberti et Henrici", by charter dated 22 Aug 1270[487].  “Humbert sire de Villars et de Thoire chevalier” acknowledged holding “le bourg de Villars, le château de Loyes...le château de Montieux...et le château de Montillier” in fief from “Isabelle comtesse de Forez, dame de Beaujeu” by charter dated Aug 1271[488].  A charter dated 1271 records an arbitral sentence in a dispute between “l’abbé de l’Ile-Barbe” and “Humbert sire de Thoire et de Villars” concerning “la garde du château de Ligneu[489]Humbert was guarantor under the 1274 marriage contract of Thomas [III] de Savoie Conte del Piemonte and Guye de Bourgogne [Comté][490].  Guichenon notes charters dated 1275, 1279, 1281, 1287, 1289, 1291, 1298, and 1299 which name Humbert[491].  Guichenon records his death 14 May 1301 and burial “dans l’église de S. Claude en Comté”, whose necrology records the death “XIII Kal Mai” of “Humbertus miles dominus de Thoiry et de Villariis[492].  It should be noted that Guichenon splits Humbert [III] into two persons, father and son, the earlier marrying the sister of the Duke of Burgundy and dying “sur la fin de l’année 1279” (no source cited), the latter dying 14 May 1301 as noted above[493].  Given the estimated birth-dates of Humbert [III] and Humbert [IV], an intervening generation between the two is unlikely.  [m [BEATRIX] de Bourgogne, daughter of EUDES III Duke of Burgundy [Capet] & his second wife Alix de Vergy ([1216/18] or before-).  It is unlikely that this person existed.  Guichenon identifies the wife of Humbert [III] as “Béatrix de Bourgogne Dame de Montreal, d’Arbent et de Martigna en Bugey...fille d’Eudes III...et d’Alix de Vergy”, citing “deux sçavans historiens de nostre temps, mais ils la nomment mal, Alix de Bourgogne[494].  Guichenon does not identify the “deux...historiens”, but Duchesne names “Alix de Bourgogne” (whom he associates with an epitaph at Cîteaux recording her death in 1266) as a daughter of Duke Eudes III (no marriage specified)[495], as does Père Anselme who says she died “fille en 1266” citing the same Cîteaux epitaph[496].  The chronology suggests that Guichenon is unlikely to be correct.  Béatrix’s supposed father died in 1218, placing her birth in [1216/18] at the latest, while her supposed husband was still a minor in 1254: such an age difference between the wife and her husband would have been unusual.  The family origin of a wife of Humbert is confirmed by the book of fees of the church of Lyon which records “domino de Villars et de Thoiré” holding “tota terra Montisregalis quæ est ultra Sagonam...usque ad Gebennas” which he received “in dotem suæ uxoris sororis ducis Burgundiæ[497], but as suggested below this may refer to Humbert’s wife Marguerite.]  m firstly MARGUERITE, daughter of ---.  Guichenon names “Marguerite” as wife of Humbert Seigneur de Villars and mother of his son Humbert, who is named below, but cites no source [note that Guichenon places an extra Humbert in the line of descent][498].  The primary source which confirms her name has not been identified.   As noted above, the book of fees of the church of Lyon records “domino de Villars et de Thoiré” holding “tota terra Montisregalis quæ est ultra Sagonam...usque ad Gebennas” which he received “in dotem suæ uxoris sororis ducis Burgundiæ” without naming the wife in question[499].  His wife was therefore presumably Dame de Montréal, d’Arbent et de Martignat, as indicated in Europäische Stammtafeln[500].  Given that Humbert’s marriage to Béatrix of Burgundy is unlikely to be correct as discussed above, maybe this entry refers to Humbert’s wife Marguerite: if that is correct, the chronology suggests that she was [Marguerite], daughter of [Hugues IV Duke of Burgundy & his first wife Yolande de Dreux].  One difficulty is that Duke Robert is already recorded with two sisters named Marguerite.  The alternative possibilities are therefore that Humbert’s wife was not called Marguerite or that Duke Robert had three sisters with that name.  The properties granted by Humbert [III] when he emancipated his son in Jul 1291 included “...Montreal...Arbent”, suggesting inheritance from the “sororis ducis Burgundiæ” named in the Lyon book of fees[501], suggesting that he inherited them from his mother.  Another perspective is provided by Charrière who names “Marguerite de la Tour-du-Pin” as Humbert’s wife and mother of his daughter Marguerite, named below (no source cited)[502].  That person has not been traced in the La Tour-du-Pin family (see the document BURGUNDY KINGDOM-VIENNOIS).  m secondly (after Mar 1278) as her second husband, JORDANE de Grandson, widow of AIMON [III] de la Tour, daughter of PIERRE [I] Seigneur de Grandson & his wife Agnes de Neuchâtel (-10 Dec ----).  Her parentage and marriages are shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[503], but the primary source which confirms this information has not been identified.   The necrology of Bonmont records the death 10 Dec of “Jordana domina de Villar” and her donation[504].  Humbert [III] & his first wife had [six] children: 

a)         HUMBERT [IV] ([1265/70?]-28 Nov 1336).  Humbert [IV]’s birth date is estimated from the following: Humbert Seigneur de Thoire emancipated his son in Jul 1291 and granted him properties including “Villars, Chastelard...Montreal...Arbent”, reserving the usufruct for life[505]Seigneur de Thoire et Villars

b)         LOUIS (-4 Jul 1308, bur Saint-Claude).  Archbishop of Lyon 1301. 

c)         JEAN (-31 Oct 1332).  Canon at Vienne and Geneva.  Canon at Lyon. 

d)         MARGUERITE (-after 5 Apr 1315).  Her parentage is confirmed by the Jul 1308 charter quoted below which names her brother Humbert (assuming that he was “sire d’Aubonne”, which has not otherwise been confirmed).  Pope Honorius IV granted a late dispensation for the marriage of “Johannis de Cossonay” and “Margaretæ de Villariis” despite their 4o consanguinity, noting that the couple had been ignorant of their family relationship, dated 26 Jan 1286[506].  Considering the likely date of her husband’s birth, it is unlikely that the couple were married much before the date of the dispensation.  Charrière suggests that their consanguinity may have been through the comital family of Burgundy[507].  “Margareta de Vilars domina de Cossonay, Humbertus et Ludouicus filii dicte Margarete ac...Johannis quondam domini de Cossonay” donated revenue to Lac-de-Joux, for the anniversary of “mariti nostri quondam...patris nostri”, by charter dated Dec 1306[508].  Marguerite de Thoire et Villars dame de Cossonay donated property to Cossonay priory, for the souls of “feu son mari Jean seigneur de Cossonay et feue Jordane mère du dit seigneur”, by charter dated Feb 1306 (O.S.)[509].  “Marguerite de Thoire et Villars veuve du...sire Jean et Louis seigneur de Cossonay leur fils” granted the right to construct a castle “dans la paroisse de Vuillerens” to “Pierre de Duin” by charter dated Jul 1308, sealed by “Marguerite de Villars...son frère Humbert sire d’Aubonne...[510].  “Humbert Louis et Aymon fils de Jean seigneur de Cossonay” sold revenue from their castles of Cossonay, Berchier, L’Isle and Luins to “Otton seigneur de Grandson” to pay “Marguerite leur mère, mariée en secondes noces à Aymon de la Palud” and for the dowry of “Perronette leur sœur, femme de Perronet fils dudit Aymon de la Palud”, by charter dated 5 Apr 1315[511]m firstly ([1285?], Papal dispensation 26 Jan 1286) JEAN [III] Seigneur de Cossonay, son of JACQUES Seigneur de Cossonay & his wife Jordane de Champvent [Grandson] ([after 1266/67]-[Feb 1304/Jun 1306]).  m secondly (after Dec 1306) as his second wife, AYMON de la Palud Seigneur de Varambon, son of --- (-1318). 

e)         LEONETE (-before 1300)Europäische Stammtafeln shows her parentage and marriage[512]m GUICHARD Seigneur d’Anthon, son of --- (-after 20 Aug 1300).  

f)          [ALIX (-1302, bur Baume-les-Nonnains)Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  Père Anselme records her parentage (noting that she was the daughter of “Beatrix de Bourgogne”) and marriage, noting that she died in 1302 and was buried near her husband, without citing the sources on which this information is based[513]An epitaph at La Baume-les-Nonnains records the burial of “Dame Alix de Villars femme de Messire Hugues de Vienne” who died in 1302[514]On the other hand, Europäische Stammtafeln names “Alix de Rougemont Dame de Pouilly-sur-Saòne, daughter of Thibaut [III] Seigneur de Rougemont” as wife of Hugues de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny[515].  The question is further complicated by another table in Europäische Stammtafeln which shows Hugues’s wife as Alix de Faucogney, possible daughter of Aimon de Faucogney [Rougemont] Vicomte de Vesoul, Seigneur de Villersexel[516].  No primary source which might shed light on Alix’s correct parentage has been identified, except the epitaph quoted above.  The only point on which all three secondary sources agree is that Alix was dame de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  The key to resolving the problem therefore appears to be establishing the succession of the seigneurie de Pouilly-sur-Saône.  As is shown in the document BURGUNDY DUCHY-BEAUNE & CHALON, no reference has been found to the Pouilly family after the death of Gérard Seigneur de Pouilly, dated to [1136/43].  It is probable that Gérard died without direct heirs and that Pouilly-sur-Saône was inherited by his sister Aiglantine and her descendants, but unfortunately no source has been identified which confirms the succession.  Phelippes dit de Vienne et sires de Paigné chevaliers et Iehane freres d’iceluy Phelippes damoiseaus, fil cay en arriers de bone heurée recordation Hugon cay en arriers conte de Vienne” reached agreement with “nostre...mere Aalys dite contesse de Vienne et cay en arriers dame de Paigné” concerning her dower by charter dated Oct 1277[517].  m HUGUES de Vienne Seigneur de Pagny, son of HUGUES Seigneur d’Antigny et de Pagny & his wife Beatrix de Vienne (-after Jul 1269, bur Baume-les-Nonnains).]

a)         ETIENNE [I] de Villars (-[1171/17 Jul 1188]).  Seigneur de Villars.  “Stephanus Vilarensis, Ylie filius, volens Ierosolimam profisci” sold “partem meam de portu Rodani qui est Lugduni” to the prior of la Platière, for the soul of “matris mee”, with the consent of “Stephanus Vilarensis filius supradicti Stephani”, by charter dated 1139[627].  “Stephanus de Vilars” promised “quicquid in obedientiam de Riniaco” [Rigneux-le-Franc] to Lyon Saint-Paul by charter dated to [1145][628].  The Chronicle of Chassagne abbey records that “Stephanus dominus de Vilari, cum non haberet prolem sive heredem”, and wanting to go to Jerusalem, donated “mansum de Cassania...mansum de Pomerio et de Corsendon” to the abbot of Chassagne in 1145[629].  A charter dated 16 Sep 1151 records that "Stephanus de Villars" attacked "Rocca-Tailla…castro" and ordered the cessation of the attack[630].  Pope Adrian IV confirmed the donation of “quod in portu Lugdunensi” made to la Platière by “Stephano de Vilari et filio eius Stephano de Vilari” by bull dated 7 Jan 1159[631].  The Chronicle of Chassagne abbey records that “Stephanus dominus de Villars”, and wanting to go to Jerusalem, donated “alodium de Montugonio” to Chassagne in 1171[632].  Etienne [I] was presumably deceased when named in the following document: Heinrich VI King of Germany granted “duo pedagia, quæ tenebat Stephanus de Villars Regali authoritate...unum in carrata publica iuxta Ambroniacum...reliquum in flumine Araris apud Treuoux...” to “Humberti de Thoiria” by charter dated 17 Jul 1188[633]m firstly ---.  The name of Etienne’s first wife is not known.  m secondly ([after 1145]) ---.  The name of Etienne’s second wife is not known.  Etienne presumably remarried after the death of his son Etienne [II] and presumably after his return from Jerusalem.  Etienne [I] & his wife had one child:

Etienne [I] & his second wife had one child: 

ii)         AGNES de Villars (-after 1242).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the Chronicle of Chassagne abbey which records that “Agnes de Villari, Stephani de Thoire et de Villars militis mater” donated “decimam apud Marlieu” to Chassagne, with the consent of “Humberti de Villars filii Stephani predicti”, and in 1242 donated “mansum et molendinum de Felicieu Liberum et mansum de Chastellard”, and noting that “hæc autem Agnes” was “filia domini Stephani de Villars huius abbatis fundatoris [Etienne [I], see above] et uxor domini Stephani de Thoire militis[636].  Agnes was presumably born late in her father’s life.  m ETIENNE [I] Seigneur de Thoire, son of HUMBERT [II] Seigneur de Thoire & his wife Agnes de Coligny (-1235 or after).
