About Umberto III 'il Beato' di Savoia, conte di Savoia

Humbert III (1135-1189), surnamed the Blessed, was Count of Savoy from 1148 to 1189. His parents were Amadeus III of Savoy and Mahaut (or Mafalda, or Matilda) of Albon, the sister of Guy IV of Dauphinois.

His first wife died young; his second marriage ended in divorce. Humbert gave up and became a Carthusian monk. However, the nobles and common people of Savoy begged him to marry yet again, which he reluctantly did. This third wife gave him two more daughters, and Humbert attempted to return to the monastic life yet again. Finally he was prevailed upon to marry for a fourth time, and this wife, Beatrice, produced the son who would ultimately succeed him.

In 1188 he founded the Monastery of Sant'Antonio di Ranverso.

According to Cope[1]

Humbert III de Savoie, dit le bienheureux né le 4 août 1136 au château de Veillane, mort le 4 mars 1189 à Chambéry, fut comte de Savoie, d'Aoste et de Maurienne de 1148 à 1189. Il était fils d'Amédée III, comte de Savoie, d'Aoste et de Maurienne, et de Mathilde d'Albon.

Agé de douze ans à la mort de son père, il commença son règne sous la tutelle d'Amédée de Clermont, évêque de Lausanne. Il passa presque toute sa vie dans les monastères qu'il enrichit de ses dons, et principalement celui de Hauterive. Souverain pieux, il aurait voulu se faire moine, mais dut se marier quatre fois pour assurer sa descendance. Mort en tant que moine à l'abbaye d'Hautecombe.

En 1153, il battit le dauphin Guigues V d'Albon près de Montmélian. Il prit le parti du pape Alexandre III contre l'empereur Frédéric Barberousse, qui envahit ses États, incendiant Suse en 1174 (les archives du comté furent détruites à cette occasion). Il se vengea par la prise de Turin en 1175 ; mais Henri VI, le fils de Frédéric le mit au ban de l'Empire en 1187 et dévasta le Piémont.

Il se maria quatre fois :

  1. en 1151 avec Faidiva de Toulouse (1135-1154) fille d'Alphonse Jourdain, comte de Toulouse et de Faidiva d'Uzès.
  2. en 1157 Gertrude de Lorraine († 1173), fille de Thierry d'Alsace, comte de Flandre et de Sibylle d'Anjou. Ils se séparèrent en 1163.
  3. en 1164 avec Clémence de Zähringen († 1167), fille de Conrad Ier, duc de Zähringen, et de Clémence de Namur. Deux ans plus tôt, elle s'était séparée de son premier époux Henri le Lion, duc de Bavière et de Saxe. Humbert et Clémence eurent trois filles :
         * Sophie (1165-1202), mariée à Azzo VI d'Este (1170 † 1212)
         * Alice, Alix ou Agnès (1166 † 1174), fut promise à Jean d'Angleterre, futur roi d'Angleterre
         * Éléonore (1167-1204), mariée en 1197 à Boniface Ier († 1207), marquis de Montferrat et roi de Thessalonique
  4. en 1177 avec Béatrice de Mâcon († 1230), fille de Gérard Ier, comte de Mâcon et de Vienne, et de Maurette de Salins
         * Thomas Ier (1178 † 1233), comte de Savoie, d'Aoste et de Maurienne.
         * une fille, morte à l'âge de sept ans

Il fut inhumé à Hautecombe et béatifié en 1836.

Humbert III, surnamed "the Blessed," was Count of Savoy from 1148 to 1189. His memorial day is March 4.

According to one historian, Humbert "was a man of irresolute spirit who was disconsolate at being born a prince and preferred the seclusion of a monastery. He only renounced his chosen state of celibacy so as to give his land an heir."

His first wife died young; his second marriage ended in divorce. Humbert gave up and became a Carthusian monk. However, the nobles and common people of Savoy begged him to marry yet again, which he reluctantly did. This third wife gave him two more daughters, and Humbert attempted to return to the monastic life yet again. Finally he was prevailed upon to marry for a fourth time, and this wife, Beatrice, produced the son who would ultimately succeed him. This is, of course, fortunate for you--because it was only through Beatrice that he contributed his DNA to you.
