EBLE "Mancer", illegitimate son of RAINULF II Comte de Poitou, Duke of Aquitaine & his mistress --- ([870/75]-[Jan 934/935]).

The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes names "Eblum" as son of "Ramnulfus…comes Pictaviensis", another manuscript specifying that he was born "ex concubina"[283]. The Chronicle of Saint-Maxence names "Ramnulfus comes…Pictavensis…filium Eblum"[284]. The Chronico Richardi Pictavensis names "Ramnulfus Comes Pictavis filium…Eblum"[285].

He succeeded his father in 890 as EBLE "Mancer" Comte de Poitou, his illegitimacy apparently presenting no obstacle to his succession, although this was opposed by Adémar, son of Comte Emenon.

Comte Eble found refuge first with Géraud Seigneur d'Aurillac, later with Guillaume "le Pieux" Comte d'Auvergne, his uncles Josbert and Eble assuming the defence of his rights to Poitou until their deaths in late 892[286]. Poitou was captured by the forces of Eudes King of France, who gave the county to his brother Robert although the latter was expelled by Comte Aimar[287].

Comte Eble expelled Comte Aimar in 902 and was restored as Comte de Poitou.

He was recognised as Comte du Limousin in 904[288].

Acfred Duke of Aquitaine appointed Eble as his heir, the latter succeeding as Duke of Aquitaine and Comte d'Auvergne in 927[289].

Raoul King of France transferred Aquitaine to Raymond Comte de Toulouse in 932[290].

His last known act was a donation to the monks of Saint-Cyprien dated Jan 934[291].

m firstly (betrothed before 10 Oct 890, [891/92]) AREMBURGIS, daughter of ---. Her future husband names her as his betrothed in an act dated 10 Oct 890[292].

m secondly (before Feb 911) EMILLANE, daughter of --- (-[932/36] or after).

Comte Ebalus & his [second] wife had two children:

1.Guillaume de Poitou (b. c.900, d. 3 April 963 in Poitou, succeeded as Comte de Poitou as Guillaume Tete d'Etoupes/Capite-Stupae or William the Towheaded, and later as Duc d'Aquitaine, OUR ANCESTOR)

2. Ebalus de Poitou (d. 26 February 977 at Abbaye de St-Michel-en-Lherm, where he was Abbot, Bishop of Limoges, blinded by Helie, Comte de Perigord)

Ebalus, Duke of Aquitaine

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Ebalus of Aquitaine)

Jump to: navigation, search

Ebalus or Ebles Manzer or Manser (c. 870 – 935) was Count of Poitou and Duke of Aquitaine on two occasions: from 890 to 892 and from 902 (Poitou) and 927 (Aquitaine) to his death.

Ebles was an illegitimate son of Ranulf II of Aquitaine. The meaning of his surname is disputed. Manzer is a Germanic habitational name, but also a Germanic personal name formed from magin, meaning "strength" or "might" (cf magnus). The same surname was used by another Prince from Occitania, Arnaud Manzer, Count of Angoulême (born 952-died 988/92), who also was a bastard. No other European Prince used the name Manzer. This fact makes the speculation about the Germanic origin of the Ebles' surname problematic.

Ebles succeeded his father Ranulf in 890, but was driven out in 892 by Aymar, who was supported by Eudes of France. Ebles gained the backing of William the Pious, Count of Auvergne, who placed Aquitaine under his own authority in 893.

In 902, Ebles launched the reconquest of his county with an army lent by his distant relative William the Pious. He took Poitiers while Aymar was away and established control of the county. He was invested as count by Charles III, with whom Ebles had been raised.

The comital title was the only one to which he ever had legitimate investiture. Ebles allotted the abbey of Saint-Maixent to Savary, Viscount of Thouars, who had been his constant supporter. He restructured Poitou by creating new viscounties in Aulnay and Melle and dissolved the title and position of Viscount of Poitou upon the death of its holder, Maingaud, in 925.

In 904, he conquered the Limousin. In 911, Ebles was in Chartres with an army to oppose Rollo, the Viking leader.

In 927, William the Younger, successor of William the Pious, and then his successor, his brother Acfred, died in the space of one year. Acfred had made Ebles his heir; Ebles thus found himself Duke of Aquitaine, Count of Berry, Auvergne, and Velay.

In 929, King Rudolph started trying to reduce the power of Ebles. He withdrew from him access to Berry, then in 932 he transferred the titles of Duke of Aquitaine and Count of Auvergne to the Count of Toulouse, Raymond Pons. Moreover, the territory of La Marche, which was under the control of the lord of Charroux, vassal of Ebles, was transformed into an independent county.

Ebalus married Emilienne and they had two sons:

Ebalus Mancer, genannt der Bastard (frz.: Ebles Manzer; * um 870; † 935), war ein Graf von Poitou und Herzog von Aquitanien aus der Familie der Ramnulfiden.

Leben [Bearbeiten]

Er war ein unehelicher Sohn des Grafen Ramnulf II. von Poitou. Obwohl er die Nachfolge seines Vaters in Poitiers antreten konnte musste er 892 vor dem Grafen Adémar fliehen, der mit der Unterstützung König Odos das Poitou besetzt hatte. Ebalus fand Zuflucht bei Wilhelm dem Frommen, dem ersten Fürsten Aquitaniens. Mit seiner Hilfe eroberte er 902 Poitiers in Abwesenheit Adémars zurück. Von König Karl III. dem Einfältigen, mit dem Ebalus aufgewachsen war, wurde er sofort als legitimer Graf des Poitou anerkannt. Ebalus übergab die Abtei Saint-Maixent an Savary, Vizegraf von Thouars, der ihn unterstützt hatte. Er gründete weitere Vizegrafschaften in Aulnay und Melle, und löste die Vizegrafschaft von Poitiers nach dem Tod des Amtsinhabers Maingaud 925 auf.

Ebalus eroberte 904 das Limousin und war 911 einer der Heerführer die in der Nähe von Chartres die Normannen unter Rollo schlugen, was darauf zum Vertrag von Saint-Clair-sur-Epte führte.

In den Jahren 926 und 927 starben nacheinander die aquitanischen Herzöge Wilhelm II. und Acfred. Von letzteren wurde Ebalus als Erbe seines Hausguts eingesetzt, dass sich um das Berry, Auvergne und des Velay konzentrierte. Damit sicherte Ebalus sich und seinen Nachkommen die unumstrittene Position des ersten Fürsten Aquitaniens. Obwohl zu vermuten ist, dass er damit auch die Herzogswürde beanspruchte, wird Ebalus in zeitgenössischen Urkunden ausschließlich als Comes tituliert.

Während des Machtkampfes zwischen den Karolingern und Robertinern 922 stand Ebalus auf der Seite König Karls III. des Einfältigen gegen Markgraf Robert. Aus diesem Grund verweigerte er 923 auch dem neuen König Rudolf, aus der Partei der Robertiner, die Anerkennung. Dieser versuchte darauf die Macht Ebalus’ zu beschneiden. Er nahm ihm 932 das Berry weg, übertrug die Auvergne an den Grafen Raimund Pons von Toulouse dem er auch den aquitanischen Herzogstitel verlieh. Weiterhin machte der König die La Marche, das von den Herren von Charroux abhängig war, zur eigenständigen Grafschaft.

Ebalus war im Oktober 891 noch unverheiratet. Später ehelichte er erst Aremburga; im Februar 911 war er mit Emilienne verheiratet. Über beide Frauen ist nichts weiter bekannt. Er hatte zwei Söhne, beide wohl von Aremburga:

   * Wilhelm Werghaupt († 3. April 963), Graf von Poitou (Wilhelm I.) und Herzog von Aquitanien (Wilhelm III.)
   * Ebalus († 26. Februar 977), von 844 bis 963 Bischof von Limoges

--------------------

William III (915–3 April 963), called Towhead (French: Tête d'étoupe, Latin: Caput Stupe) from the colour of his hair, was the "Count of the Duchy of Aquitaine" from 959 and Duke of Aquitaine from 962 to his death. He was also the Count of Poitou (as William I) from 935 and Count of Auvergne from 950. The primary sources for his reign are Ademar of Chabannes, Dudo of Saint-Quentin, and William of Jumièges.

William was son of Ebalus Manzer and Emilienne. He was born in Poitiers. He claimed the Duchy of Aquitaine from his father's death, but the royal chancery did not recognise his ducal title until the year before his own death.

Shortly aftered the death of King Rudolph in 936, he was constrained to forfeit some land to Hugh the Great by Louis IV. He did it with grace, but his relationship with Hugh thenceforward deteriorated. In 950, Hugh was reconciled with Louis and granted the duchies of Burgundy and Aquitaine. He tried to conquer Aquitaine with Louis's assistance, but William defeated them. Lothair, Louis's successor, feared the power of William. In August 955 he joined Hugh to besiege Poitiers, which resisted successfully. William, however, gave battle and was routed.

After the death of Hugh, his son Hugh Capet was named duke of Aquitaine, but he never tried to take up his fief, as William reconciled with Lothair.

He was given the abbey of Saint-Hilaire-le-Grand, which remained in his house after his death. He also built a library in the palace of Poitiers.

Marriage and issue

He married Gerloc (renamed Adele), daughter of Rollo of Normandy. They had at least two children:

Adelaide, who married Hugh Capet

William, his successor in Aquitaine. He abdicated to the abbey of Saint-Cyprien in Poitiers and left the government to his son. -------------------- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebalus_of_Aquitaine -------------------- BIOGRAPHY: REF Theroff. Count of Auvergne. Illegitimate son of Rainulf II. Count of Limosin 928-932. -------------------- Ebalus or Ebles Manzer or Manser (c. 870 – 935) was Count of Poitou and Duke of Aquitaine on two occasions: from 890 to 892 and from 902 (Poitou) and 927 (Aquitaine) to his death.

Ebles was an illegitimate son of Ranulf II of Aquitaine. The meaning of his surname is disputed. Manzer is a Germanic habitational name, but also a Germanic personal name formed from magin, meaning "strength" or "might" (cf magnus). It may also be a corruption of the Hebrew mamzer, meaning bastard, hence the appellation sometimes seen, Ebles the Bastard, and his supposed Jewish mother. The same surname was used by another Prince from Occitania, Arnaud Manzer, Count of Angoulême (born 952-died 988/92) who also was a bastard. No any other European Prince had name Manzer. This fact makes problematic the speculation about Germanic origin of the Ebles' surname.

Ebles succeeded his father Ranulf in 890, but was driven out in 892 by Aymar, who was supported by Eudes of France. Ebles gained the backing of William the Pious, Count of Auvergne, who placed Aquitaine under his own authority in 893.

Ebles was an illegitimate son of Ranulf II of Aquitaine. "Manzer" or "Mamzer" was a shameful designation that meant bastard, son of a prostitute, or illegitimate. It appears that Ebles did not mind his name, and his "illegitimacy became a part of his style." Upon the death of his father (who was poisoned), Ebles assumed his father’s mantle and acquired the role of Count of Poitou. But Ebles could not hold onto the title for long. Aymar, a descendant of one of Ramnulf II’s predecessedors, challenged Ebles right to rule, as Ebles was merely a bastard son. In 892, Aymar, who was supported by Eudes of France, overthrew Ebles, and Ebles fled to the safety of his father’s allies, Count Gerald of Aurillac and William the Pious, count of Avergne and Duke of Aquitaine.[3] William the Pious had taken Ebles under his care and assured the boy’s education after the death of Ebles’ father. In 902, Ebles, with the assistance of William the Pious, a distant relative, conquered Poitiers while Aymar was away, and reestablished himself in his former position. Charles III, who knew Ebles as a childhood companion, then formally invested Ebles with the title, Count of Poitou. Ebles would hold this title until this death. The comital title was the only one to which he ever had legitimate investiture. Ebles allotted the abbey of Saint-Maixent to Savary, Viscount of Thouars, who had been his constant supporter. He restructured Poitou by creating new viscounties in Aulnay and Melle[disambiguation needed] and dissolved the title and position of Viscount of Poitou upon the death of its holder, Maingaud, in 925. In 904, he conquered the Limousin. In 911 he, with two other French commanders were aligned in opposition to Rollo, a Danish invader who had plundered the countryside. Ebles and the other two commanders intended to lead their armies in defense of the city of Chartes. Part of Rollo’s army camped on a hill (Mont-Levis) north of the city, while the rest were stationed on the plains outside Chartes. On Saturday, July 20, 911, the battle between the French and Danish armies commenced. "Rollo and his forces were shamefully routed, smitten, as the legend tells, with corporeal blindness. A panic assuredly fell upon the heroic commander, a species of mental infirmity discernible in his descendants: the contagious terror unnerved the host. Unpursued, they dispersed and fled without resistance." At the end of the day, 6,800 Danes lay dead on the field of battle. Ebles was somewhat slow in arriving at Chartres, so he was unable to "take his due share in the conflict." His victorious partners proudly boasted of their success, and mocked Ebles and his tardy army. To redeem his honor and quiet the ridicule, Ebles accepted a challenge to confront the remant of the Danish army that remained camped on the Mont-Levis. But instead of driving the Danes away, Ebles’ army was defeated soundly. "In the dark of the night, the Northmen, sounding their horns and making a terrible clamour, rushed down the mount and stormed" Ebles camp. Ebles fled and hid in a drum in a fuller’s workshop. His cowardice and dishonor was derided in a popular French ballad of the Plantagenet age. When Ebles’ benefactor, William the Pious, died, William was succeeded as Duke of Aquitaine by William the Younger. In 927, William the Younger died, and he left his title to his brother Acfred; but Acfred did not live even a year. Acfred made Ebles his heir, and in 928 Ebles assumed the titles Duke of Aquitaine, Count of Berry, Count of Auvergne, and Velay. In 929, King Rudolph started trying to reduce the power of Ebles. He withdrew from him access to Berry, then in 932 he transferred the titles of Duke of Aquitaine and Count of Auvergne to the Count of Toulouse, Raymond Pons. Moreover, the territory of La Marche, which was under the control of the lord of Charroux, vassal of Ebles, was transformed into an independent county. Marriage and issue: Ebles' first wife was Aremburga, whom he married before 10 Oct 892. His second wife was Emilienne, whom he married in 911. When Emilienne died in 913/915, Ebles married Adele the following year. Adele has been commonly referred to as the daughter of Edward the Elder. Some sources believe that Adele was the same person as Edward's daughter, Ælfgifu, but that the confusion equating Ælfgifu to Adele arose from the fact that English historians did not recognize her name after it was translated into French. She has also been called Adela, Adele, Alaine, or Aliana. Ebalus had one child by Emilienne, and another one by Adele
