About Rudolph I de Bourgogne (Burgundy), King of Upper Burgundy (Transjurane)

Rudolph I, born 859, died October 25, 912, King of (Upper or Transjurane) Burgundy from his election in 888 until his death.

Rudolph belonged to the elder Welf family and was the son of Conrad, Count of Auxerre, from whom he inherited the lay abbacy of St Maurice en Valais, making him the most powerful magnate in Upper Burgundy - present-day western Switzerland and the Franche Comté.

After the deposition and death of Charles the Fat, the nobles and leading clergy of Upper Burgundy met at St Maurice and elected Rudolph as king. Apparently on the basis of this election, Rudolph claimed the whole of Lotharingia, taking much of modern Lorraine and Alsace - but his claim was contested by Arnulf of Carinthia, the new king of East Francia or Germany, who rapidly forced Rudolph to abandon Lotharingia in return for recognition as king of Burgundy. However, hostilities between Rudolph and Arnulf seem to have continued intermittently until 894.

Rudolph's relationships with his other neighbours were friendlier. His sister Adelaide married Richard the Justiciar, duke of Burgundy (the present day Burgundy, part of west Francia), and his daughters, another Adelaide, married Louis the Blind of Provence (Lower Burgundy), and Willa, married Boso of Tuscany.

Rudolph was succeeded as king of Burgundy by his son, Rudolph II. Rudolf I's widow, queen Guilla, married in 912 Hugh of Arles.

This Rudolph is frequently confused with his nephew Rudolph of France, who was the second duke of Burgundy and ninth king of France.

Wikipedia:

Rudolf I. († 25. Oktober 912) war König von Hochburgund (Transjurana) von 888 bis 912.

Rudolf entstammt dem burgundischen Zweig der Welfen und war der Sohn des Grafen Konrad von Auxerre.

Nach der Absetzung des Ostfränkischen Königs Karls des Dicken zerfiel dessen Reich, und auf dem Boden seiner burgundischen Landesteile ließ sich Rudolf, der seit 872 hier als Markgraf von Transjuranien regierte, 888 in St. Maurice d'Agaune von den Großen zum König von Burgund ausrufen und wurde auch von Kaiser Arnulf von Kärnten anerkannt. Er starb nach einer friedlichen Regierungszeit.

Das von ihm begründete Hochburgund umfasste die spätere Freigrafschaft Burgund, die Westschweiz, Basel, das Wallis, Aosta und Teile der Zentralschweiz.

Er war verheiratet mit Willa von Burgund, wohl einer Tochter des Boso von Vienne, des Königs von Niederburgund (Cisjuranien), mit der er vier Kinder hatte:

   * Rudolf II. († 11. Juli 937) 912 König von Burgund, 912/925 König von Italien, begraben in St. Maurice, ∞ wohl 922 Bertha von Schwaben († nach 2. Januar 966) Tochter des Burchard II. Herzog von Schwaben (Burchardinger)
   * Ludwig,. 920/929 Graf im Thurgau, ∞ Edgifa, Tochter des Königs Eduard der Ältere von England
   * Waldrada, ∞ zwischen 921 und 17. Juli 923 Bonifacius Herzog und Markgraf von Spoleto († Juli/Dezember 953)
   * Judith, 929

Willa heiratete 912 in zweiter Ehe den Grafen Hugo von Vienne, der 924 König von Niederburgund und 926 als Hugo I. König von Italien wurde.
