About Otto Guillaume (The Captive) di Ivrea (de Bourgogne), Duke of Burgundy

From Wikipedia

Otto William (962 – 21 September 1026, born as Guglielmo di Ivrea) was a son of Adalbert, King of Italy, and Gerberga of Mâcon.

His mother gave him what would be the Free County of Burgundy around Dôle in 982. Otto also inherited the duchy of Burgundy on the other side of the Saône in 1002 from his stepfather Eudes Henry the Great. The duchy then corresponded to the diocese of Besançon in the Holy Roman Empire. He was also Count of Mâcon in France.

Burgundy was annexed to the crown of France by King Robert II in 1004. Determined to be sovereign ruler of his own lands, Otto revolted against the Emperor Henry II in 1016. This was after Rudolph III of Burgundy, the last king of that realm, had done homage to Henry at Strasbourg making him his guard and heir. On Otto's death, the Free County fell under the suzerainty of the German emperors.

Wikipedia:

Otto Wilhelm (französisch: Otte-Guillaume) (* wohl 958; † 21. September 1026) war der älteste Sohn des Markgrafen Adalbert II. von Ivrea († 30. April 971), der 960-961 als Mitregent seines Vaters Adalbert II. (Ivrea) König von Italien war, und der Gerberga von Mâcon († 11. Dezember 986/991), der Tochter des Grafen Otto (Othon) und Erbin von Mâcon.

Nachdem seine Mutter in zweiter Ehe um 972 Heinrich den Großen, den Grafen von Nevers und seit 956 Herzog von Burgund, geheiratet hatte, wurde Otto Wilhelm von seinem Stiefvater adoptiert. Um 982 erhielt er die Grafschaften Mâcon und Nevers, 995 die Grafschaft Burgund (Franche-Comté), und war nach Heinrichs Tod (15. Oktober 1002) Prätendent auf den Titel eines Herzogs von Burgund. Heinrich hatte bei seinem Tod neben seinem Adoptivsohn nur eine vierjährige Tochter.

Robert II., König von Frankreich, Neffe Heinrichs, zog das Herzogtum jedoch wieder ein, obwohl es zuvor nicht zur Krondomäne gehört hatte, und unterstellte es sich selbst. Otto Wilhelm blieb neben Mâcon und Nevers vor allem die Freigrafschaft Burgund, die zum Heiligen Römischen Reich gehörte.

Otto Wilhelm heiratete zwei Mal: zum einen um 982 Ermentrude von Roucy († 5. März 1002/1005, die Witwe des Grafen Aubry von Mâcon und Tochter des Grafen Renaud von Roucy und der Alverade von Hennegau; zum anderen vor 1016 Adélaide (oder Blanche) von Anjou († 1026), Tochter des Grafen Fulko II., Witwe des Grafen Stephan (Étienne) von Gévaudan, geschiedene Ehefrau des Königs Ludwig V. von Frankreich und erneut Witwe von Wilhelm I., Markgraf von Provence und Graf von Arles. Nachkommen [Bearbeiten]

Kinder hatte er nur aus seiner ersten Ehe:

   * Guido I., * wohl 975 † wohl 1004, 997 Graf von Mâcon; ∞ um 991 Aelis von Mâcon, Tochter des Grafen Liétald II.
  • Mathilde, * wohl 975, † 1005, ∞ um 995 Landry von Monceau Graf von Nevers, † 1028
  • Gerberga, * wohl 985, † 1020/1023; ∞ um 1002 Wilhelm II. von Provence, † 1018, vor 30. Mai.
  • Rainald I. (Renaud I.), * wohl 990, † 3./4. September 1057, 1026 Graf von Burgund; ∞ vor 1. September 1016 Adeleide (Judith) von Normandie, † 7. Juli nach 1037, Tochter des Grafen Richard II.
  • Agnes, * wohl 995, † 10. November 1068 geistlich; ∞ I 1019 Wilhelm III. Graf von Poitou, als Wilhelm V. Herzog von Aquitanien, † 31. Januar 1030; ∞ II 1. Januar 1032, geschieden 1049/1052, Gottfried II. (Geoffroy II.) Martel, Graf von Anjou, † 9. September 1067

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

A l'époque où son père est évincé de Lombardie, Otte-Guillaume alors enfant, est incarcéré dans un monastère d'Italie sur ordre de l'empereur Othon I. Un moine fidèle à son père l'en sort pour le conduire en Bourgogne, où quelques années plus tard son beau-père Eude-Henri, duc de Bourgogne, qui n'avait pas eu d'enfant l'adoptera.

Otte-Guillaume institué héritier du duché de Bourgogne voit sa position un moment menacée quand Eude-Heni se remarie avec Gersende de Gascogne. Mais cette union restera stérile. A la mort du duc le 15 octobre 1002, il reçoit pour le duché l'hommage des seigneurs bourguignons. Mais la Bourgogne est revendiquée par le neveu du défunt, le roi Robert II. Au printemps 1003, le souverain envoie en Bourgogne des troupes prêtées par Richard II duc de Normandie ; manifestement Otte-Guillaume ne peut s'opposer à cette armée et accepte de se soumettre. Il se réconcilie avec le roi de France dès l'hiver 1005-1006 et renonce définitivement à ses prétentions en 1015. La Bourgogne devient alors capétienne.

Otte-Guillaume ayant lâché prise sur la Bourgogne Occidentale, s'interesse à la Bourgogne-Transjurane, sur laquelle règne le faible Rodolphe III. Cependant jusqu'à sa mort, il doit se contenter des fiefs acquis par mariage. C'est à sa descendance que reviendra la tâche de réaliser ses ambitions.
