About Douce I de Gévaudan, comtesse de Provence

En 1112 recibe el condado de Provenza por herencia materna. Ese mismo año contrajo matrimonio en Arlés con el conde de Barcelona, y en 1113 cedió a su marido los derechos sobre el condado de Provenza, el condado de Gévaudan y el vizcondado de Millau, inagurando el dominio aragonés en Provenza.

Condado de Provenza  

El año 948, con el ascenso de Boso II de Provenza, se nombró el primer conde de Provenza. Los descendientes de este son denominados de la Dinastía Provenza o Bosonides y gobiernan el territorio provenzal hasta el 1112, año en que se instauró una nueva dinastía, la Dinastía Millau-Gévaudan. La condesa del condado, Gerberge de Provenza, cedió sus derechos a su hija Dulce de Provenza. Esta dinastía duró poco, puesto que el casamiento el año 1112 de Dulce con el conde de Barcelona, Ramón Berenguer III, confirió los derechos del condado a la Casa de Barcelona.

Esta dinastía catalana perduró en el condado hasta el 1267 mediante la rama principal de la casa condal barcelonesa o una anexa, a menudo con luchas entre ambas ramas.

El casamiento de Beatriz I de Provenza con el conde Carlos I de Anjou provocó el fin de la casa condal barcelonesa y el inicio de la Dinastía Anjou. Esta unión con la dinastía francesa permitió la unión temporal del Condado de Provenza con el Reino de Nápoles. Una unión que se inició con el mismo Carlos I, ya rey de Nápoles al ascender al condado, hasta Juana I de Nápoles. El hijo adoptado de esta, Luis I de Anjou, y sus descendientes fueron reyes titulares de Nápoles y lucharon con la Rama Anjou-Durazzo por el trono napolitano.

El 1481, a la muerte de Carlos III de Anjou sin descendientes, los títulos de conde de Provenza y duque de Anjou revierten a su primo Luis XI de Francia y se integran en la corona francesa.

Douce de Gévaudan ou de Provence (née vers 1090, morte vers 1129) était la fille de Gilbert Ier, comte de Gévaudan, et de Gerberge, comtesse de Provence et l'épouse de Raimond Bérenger III, comte de Barcelone

1112 : le 1er février Gerberge de Provence cède à sa fille Douce, tous ses droits sur les comtés de Provence, du Gévaudan et d'une partie du Rouergue.

1112 : le 3 février, Douce épouse Raimond-Bérenger.

1113 : Douce cède à son époux Raymond-Bérenger III de Barcelone ses droits sur la Provence, la Vicomté de Millau , le Gévaudan.

Elle inaugure ainsi la période catalano/aragonaise de l'histoire de ces régions.

Son décès ouvre une période d'instabilité en Provence qui se termine par les guerres Baussenques (1144-1162) dont sortent vainqueur les comtes de Barcelone.

Elle avait eu sept enfants :

Raimond-Bérenger IV (1113 † 1162), comte de Barcelone Bérenger-Raimond (1114 † 1144), comte de Provence Bérengère (1116 † 1149), mariée en 1128 à Alphonse VII, roi de Castille et de Léon (1105 † 1157) Bernard (1117 † 1117) Etiennette (1118 † après 1131), mariée en 1128 à Centulle III, comte de Bigorre, puis vers 1130 à Raymond II Arnaud († 1167), vicomte de Dax Mafalda, mariée à Jaspert († 1151), vicomte de Castelnau, puis à Guillaume († 1166), seigneur de Castellvell Almodis, mariée en 1148 à Pons de Cervera († 1155), vicomte de Bas Précédé par Douce de Gévaudan Suivi par Gerberge comtesse de Provence 1112-1129

-------------------- Douce I (also Dulcia or Dolça, called "of Rouergue" or "of Gévaudan") (c. 1090–1127) was the daughter of Gilbert I of Gévaudan and Gerberga of Provence and wife of Ramon Berenguer III, Count of Barcelona. In 1112, she inherited the county of Provence through her mother. She married Ramon Berenguer at Arles on 3 February that year.

In 1113, Douce ceded her rights in Provence, Gévaudan, and the viscounty of Millau to her husband. According to a once prevailing opinion, "Provençal troubadours ... entered Catalonia at the time" and even the Catalan language was imported from Provence.[1] According to nationalist historians it was the beginning of l'engrandiment occitànic (the Occitan aggrandisement): a great scheme to unite various lands on both sides of the Pyrenees.[2]

In reality the marriage gave the House of Barcelona extensive interests in Occitania and put it in conflict with the Counts of Toulouse, with whom a partition of Provence was signed in 1125, shortly before Douce's death. Her death inaugurated a period of instability in Provence. A cadet branch of the House of Barcelona was set up to rule, but a disputed succession opened up the Baussenque Wars (1144–1162), which terminated in Provençal victory. Douce and Ramon Berenguer's descendants continued to rule Provence until the death of Beatrice of Provence in 1267.

Her children with Ramon Berenguer were:

Almodis, married Ponce de Cervera Berenguela (1116–1149), married Alfonso VII of Castile Ramon Berenguer (1113–1162), Count of Barcelona Berenguer Ramon (c. 1115–1144), Count of Provence Bernard, died young
