About Humbert I 'Blanches-Mains', comte de Savoie

Humberto I (980-1047/1048), llamado Blanca Mano (en italiano: Umberto Biancamano; en francés: Humbert Blanches-Mains) para designar su generosidad. Fue el primer Conde de Saboya a partir de 1032, cuando el condado de Vienne, que fue vendido recientemente a la archidiócesis de Vienne, fue dividido entre el condado de Albon y el de Maurienne. Humberto procedía de la nobleza, posiblemente de Sajonia, de Italia, de Borgoña o de Provenza. Él mismo nació en Maurienne.

Durante las guerras entre Rodolfo III de Borgoña y de Enrique II del Sacro Imperio Romano Germánico, Humberto apoyó al último con provisiones y soldados, por su unión con la familia imperial por su matrimonio. Así, en 1003, el emperador le nombró Conde de Aosta, una región montañosa en la parte de Borgoña (hoy dentro de Italia), y le concedió el norte de Viennois como recompensa. Humberto alternadamente protegió el flanco derecho del ejército de Enrique durante la invasión de Italia (1004).

Las tierras de Humberto eran esencialmente autónomas después de la muerte de Enrique. Su inaccesibilidad y su menor importancia las llevaron a ser pasado por alto. En 1032, Humberto recibido Maurienne, su país nativo, del emperador Conrado II, a que él había ayudado en sus campañas italianas contra Aribert, arzobispo de Milán.

Murió en Hermillon.

Humbert I. von Savoyen (* 1003; † 1048; genannt: Humbert mit den weißen Händen) war der Sohn von Amadeus Graf von Belley (?). Humbert wird als Stammvater des Hauses Savoyen angesehen. Sein Vater Amadeus soll um 976 geboren sein und einer kelto-romanischen Familie abstammen.

Er heiratete Ansilia Tochter des Grafen vom Wallis. 1033 erkannte er sofort die Oberherrschaft von Kaiser Konrad II. über das Königreich Burgund an, dieser gewährte ihm Rechte in Maurienne und im Chablais (Regionen in Haute Savoye, Frankreich).

Aus der Ehe mit Ansilia entsprangen vier Kinder:

   * Amadeus, der seine Nachfolge antrat
   * Aymon († 1054) wurde Fürstbischof der Grafschaft Wallis in Sitten
   * Bourcard († 1068) wurde Erzbischof von Lyon
   * Otto trat nach dem Tode seines Bruders Amadeus die Regentschaft über Savoyen an.

Humbert I (c. 980–1047/1048) was the first Count of Savoy from 1032, when the County of Vienne, which had been sold to the Archdiocese of Vienne, was divided between the County of Albon and the Maurienne. Humbert came of noble stock, possibly from Saxony,[1] Italy, Burgundy or Provence.

He is also called Humbert the White-Handed (French: Humbert aux Blanches-Mains; Italian: Umberto Biancamano) reportedly to signify his generosity. However, this posthumously applied title may derive from a textual mistranslation of an early Latin record which actually refers to the walls of his castle, not his hands, as white.[2].

During the wars between Rudolph III of Burgundy and the Emperor Henry II, Humbert supported the latter with provisions and soldiers because he was related to the imperial family by marriage. Thus, in 1003, the emperor installed him as the Count of Aosta, a mountainous region then a part of Burgundy but today within Italy, and granted him the northern Viennois as a reward. Humbert in turn protected the right flank of Henry's army during his subsequent invasion of Italy in 1040.

Humbert's lands were essentially autonomous after the death of Henry. Their mountainous inaccessibility and their minor importance lent them to being overlooked and ignored in the power struggles which inevitably followed the death of the emperor. In 1032, Humbert received the Maurienne, his native country, from the Emperor Conrad II, whom he had helped in his Italian campaigns against Aribert, Archbishop of Milan.

He died at Hermillon, a town in the Maurienne region of present day Savoie, France.

[edit] Family

Humbert married Ancilla (Auxilia or Ancilia) of Lenzburg, the daughter of the master of ceremonies of Burgundy, and had at least four sons:

  1. Amadeus I (died 1056), Count of Savoy, successor
  2. Aimone (died 1054 or 1055), Bishop of Sion
  3. Burchard (died 1068 or 1069), Archbishop of Lyon
  4. Otto (died ca. 1057), Count of Savoy, successor of his brother

Some authors believe that he had additional sons.
