About Thomas I de Savoie, comte de Savoie

Thomas Ier de Savoie Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Ier_de_Savoie

Thomas Ier de Savoie, né le 27 mai 1178 au château de Charbonnières à Aiguebelle, mort le 8 mars 1233 à Moncalieri en Italie, fut comte de Savoie, d'Aoste et de Maurienne et seigneur de Piémont de 1189 à 1233. Il était le fils d'Humbert III le Bienheureux, comte de Savoie, d'Aoste et de Maurienne, et de Béatrice de Mâcon.

Comte de Savoie à onze ans, Thomas eut pour tuteur Boniface de Montferrat, qui l'amena dans l'alliance des Gibelins. Majeur, il soutint l'empereur Frédéric II contre la papauté : il reçut alors le titre de vicaire impérial. Il étendit ses domaines jusqu'au Bugey, pays de Vaud et au Piémont et prit le titre de seigneur de Piémont. En 1232, il choisit Chambéry pour capitale. Il ne sut pas conserver ses acquisitions territoriales, car elle furent divisées entre ses fils et ce n'est qu'en 1418 que son descendant Amédée VIII parviendra à les réunir à nouveau.

En mai 1196, Thomas Ier épousa Marguerite (ou Béatrice) de Genevois, fille de Guillaume Ier de Genève, comte de Genève et de Vaud, et de Béatrice de Valpergue. Ils auront quinze enfants :

1) Amédée IV (1197 † 1253), comte de Savoie 2) Humbert (1198 † 1223 en Hongrie) 3) Béatrix, (1198 † 1266), mariée en 1219 à Raymond Bérenger V de Provence. 4) Thomas II, (1199 † 1259), prince de Piémont. 5) Aimon de Savoie († 1242), seigneur de Chablais 6) Guillaume († 1239), évêque de Valence (1226-1238), puis évêque de Liège (1238-1239) 7) Boniface, prieur à Nantua 8) Amédée († 1268) évêque de Maurienne (1230-1268) 9) Pierre II, dit le Petit Charlemagne, (1203 † 1268), comte de Savoie. 10) Philippe Ier (1207 † 1285), archevêque de Lyon et évêque de Valence (1246-1267), puis comte de Savoie. 11) Boniface (1207 † 1270), évêque de Belley (1232-1241), archevêque de Canterbury (1246-1267) 12) Alice, abbesse de Saint-Pierre à Lyon en 1250 13) Agathe, abbesse de Saint-Pierre à Lyon 14) Marguerite (1212 † 1270), mariée en 1218 à Hartmann Ier († 1250), comte de Kybourg, puis à Eberhard de Laufenbourg († 1284), comte de Kybourg 15) Avita, peut-être illégitime, mariée en 1237 à Baudouin de Reviers († 1262), 7e comte de Devon ---------- Tomás I o Tommaso I (1176 - 1 de marzo de 1233) Conde de Saboya desde 1189 hasta 1233. Hijo de Humberto III de Saboya y de Beatrice de Viennois. Su nacimiento fue considerado como milagroso; su padre monje estaba desesperado por tener un heredero varón después de tres esposas. El Conde Humberto buscó consejos de San Anselmo, que bendijo a Humberto tres veces, y predijo una profecía que fue verdad, cuando Tomás nació poco después Anselmo murió el 26 de junio de 1178. Lo llamaron así en honor a Santo Tomás Becket.

Tomás era menor de edad cuando su padre murió el 4 de marzo de 1189, y establecieron un consejo de regencia, compeusto por su madre Beatriz, el primo de su padre Bonifacio I de Montferrat, y el obispo de Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne. Tomás alcanzó la mayoría de edad en agosto de 1191. Tomás poseyó las capacidades, la energía, y el brillo que su padre careció, y Saboya gozó de una edad de oro bajo su dirección. A pesar de su juventud comenzó el empuje al noroeste en territorios nuevos. En el mismo año él concedió a Valle de Aosta la "Carta delle Franchigie", reconociendo el derecho de autonomía administrativa y política. Este derecho se mantuvo hasta la Revolución Francesa. Más adelante Tomás conquistó Cantón de Vaud, Bugey, y Carignano. Apoyó a los Hohenstaufen y fue apodado y conocido como “Tomás el Ghibelline” debido a su carrera como vicario imperial de Lombardía.

Familia y Descendientes  

En 1195 Tomás efectuó una meboscada a la partida del Conde Guillermo I de Ginebra, que escoltaba a hija del Conde, Margarita, a Francia para casarse con el rey Felipe II de Francia. Tomás se lelvó a Margarita y se casó con ella. De esta unión nacieron ocho hijos y seis hijas.

Amadeo IV, el sucesor inmediato Humberto, muerto entre marzo y nobiembre de 1223 Tommaso, señor y conde de Piamonte y fundador de una línea que se convirtió en Saboya-Achaea Aimone, muerto el 30 de agosto de 1237, señor de Chablais Guglielmo (Guillermo de Saboya), Obispo de Valence and Decano de Vienne Amadeo de Saboya, Obispo de Maurienne Pietro, quién residió mucho en Inglaterra, llegó a ser Conde de Richmond, y en 1263 se convirtió en en Conde de Saboya Filippo, arzobispo de Lyon, quién dimitió, con su amtrimonio se convirtió en Conde Palatino de Borgoña y en 1268 se convirtió en Conde de Saboya Bonifacio que fue Arzobispo de Canterbury Beatriz de Saboya, muerta en 1265 or 1266, se casó en diciembre de 1219 con Ramón Berenguer V de Provenza,(1209-1245) y fue madre de cuatro Reinas consortes Alasia de Saboya, abadesa del monasterio de San Pierre en Lyon Ágatha de Saboya, abadesa del monasterio de San Pierre en Lyon Margarita de Saboya, muerta en 1273, casada en 1218 con Hartmann I de Kyburg Avita de Saboya

Thomas I or Tommaso I (1178, Aiguebelle – 1 March 1233) was Count of Savoy from 1189-1233. He was the son of Humbert III of Savoy and Beatrice of Viennois. His birth was seen as miraculous; his monkish father had despaired of having a male heir after three wives. Count Humbert sought counsel from St. Anthelm, who blessed Humbert three times, and it was seen as a prophecy come true when Thomas was born shortly before Anthelm himself died on 26 June 1178. He was named in honour of Saint Thomas Becket.

Thomas was still a minor when his father died on 4 March 1189, and a council of regency was established, comprising of his mother Beatrice, his father's cousin Boniface I of Montferrat, and the Bishop of Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne. He had reached his majority by August 1191. Thomas possessed the martial abilities, energy, and brilliance that his father lacked, and Savoy enjoyed a golden age under his leadership. Despite his youth he began the push northwest into new territories. In the same year he granted Aosta Valley the "Carta delle Franchigie", recognising the right to administrative and political autonomy. This right was maintained up until the eve of the French Revolution. Later he conquered Vaud, Bugey, and Carignano. He supported the Hohenstaufens, and was known as "Thomas the Ghibelline" because of his career as Imperial Vicar of Lombardy. [edit] Family and children

Preceded by Humbert III Count of Savoy Succeeded by Amadeus IV -------------------- Thomas I (or Tommaso I) was Count of Savoy from 1189 to 1233. His birth was seen as miraculous; his monkish father, Humbert III, had despaired of having a male heir after three wives. Count Humbert sought counsel from St. Anthelm, who blessed Humbert three times, and it was seen as a prophecy come true when Thomas was born shortly before Anthelm himself died on June 26, 1178. The child was named in honor of Saint Thomas Becket.

Thomas was still a minor when his father died on 4 March 1189, and a council of regency was established. He had reached his majority by August 1191.

Thomas possessed the martial abilities, energy, and brilliance that his father had lacked, and Savoy enjoyed a golden age under his leadership. Despite his youth he began the push northwest into new territories. In the same year he granted Aosta Valley the "Carta delle Franchigie," recognizing the right to administrative and political autonomy. Later he conquered Vaud, Bugey, and Carignano. He supported the Hohenstaufens, the dynasty of Holy Roman Emperors, and was known as "Thomas the Ghibelline" (imperial supporter, against the Pope) because of his career as Imperial Vicar of Lombardy.

In 1195 he ambushed the party of Count William I of Geneva, which was escorting the count's daughter, Marguerite of Geneva, to France for her intended wedding to King Philip II of France. Thomas carried off Marguerite and married her himself, producing some eight sons and six daughters--including our ancestor Beatrice of Savoy.
