Amédée de Grandson is something of a mystery. Since the early 19th century he has found his way into many genealogies, which claim that he was the eldest son and successor of Pierre I de Grandson (d.1258?), sire de Grandson. Although he can be identified with a certain Amys de Grandson, who was alive in 1278, there is no evidence that he was Pierre’s son, or was lord of Grandson; and he very probably belonged to a collateral branch of the Grandson dynasty. He was not the father of Agnès de Grandson, wife of Aymon III de Montagny.
