About Willa de Bourgogne

Willa II de Bourgogne, wife of Boson de Vienne, Marchese di Toscana (Tuscany)

daughter of Rudolf I, King of Upper Burgundy, and Willa (I) de Bourgogne (who also married Hugues d'Arles, Comte de Vienne)

[WILLA (-after 936). Willa is named "uxore…Boso Tusciæ provinciæ marchio regis frater" by Liutprand, without giving her origin, when he records the marriage of her daughter Willa in 936[127]. According to Jean-Noël Mathieu, she was the daughter of Rudolf I King of Burgundy, basing this on the fact that she was sent to Burgundy when she was separated from her husband in 936[128], which is recorded by Liutprand[129], but there are presumably other plausible explanations for her destination.

m (repudiated 936) BOSO de Vienne, son of THEOTBALD Comte d'Arles & his wife Berta of Lotharingia [Carolingian] ([885]-after 936). Comte d'Avignon et Vaisin 911-931. Comte d'Arles 926-931. Marchese of Tuscany 931.]

siblings: Rudolf II, Ludwig and Waldrada.

BOSO ([885]-after 936). Liudprand names “Boso ex eodem patre regis Hugonis frater”[129]. Gingins-la-Sarra suggests that this text means that Boso was born from a different marriage of his father[130]. However, the wording could just as easily be interpreted as emphasising that Boso and Hugues were born from the same marriage of their mother. Considering the marriage dates of Boso´s daughters, it is unlikely that he was born before his brother Hugues. Comte d'Avignon et Vaisin 911-931. Comte d'Arles 926-931. He was installed by his brother as BOSO Marchese of Tuscany in 931 after Lambert Marchese of Tuscany was deposed and blinded. He rebelled against his brother in 936, encouraged by Willa "uxore sua cupidissima", but was captured and deposed[131].

Comte Boso & his wife had four children:

i) BERTA (-after 18 Aug 965). "Bertam, Willam, Richildam et Gislam" are named (in order) as the four daughters of Boso and Willa by Liudprand[135], who in a later passage names Berta as "Bosonis Arelatensis comitis viduæ" and mentions her marriage soon after the death of her first husband to Raymond, by virtue of which she was deemed guilty of incest[136]. "Raymundus comes" names "…Bertanæ et Raymundo filio meo…" in his 961 testament[137]. "Berta…comitissa et filius meus Raimundus…comes" donated property "in comitatu Nemausense" to Nîmes Notre-Dame by charter dated 7 Sep 961[138]. "Berta…comitissa" donated property "in comitatu Nemausense" to Nîmes Notre-Dame by charter dated 18 Aug 965, subscribed by "Raimundus filius meus"[139]. She is cited at the time of a synod held after 1004 (maybe [1012])[140]. m firstly ([928]) BOSO Comte in Upper Burgundy, son of RICHARD "le Justicier" Duke of Burgundy & his wife Adelais d'Auxerre [Welf] (-Sep 935, bur Reims, église de l'abbaye de Saint-Rémi). m secondly ([936]) RAYMOND I Comte de Rouergue Marquis de Septimanie, son of ERMENGAUD Comte de Rouergue & his wife Adelaida --- (-killed [Feb 961/7 Oct 962]). Duke of Aquitaine 936.

ii) WILLA (-after 963). "Bertam, Willam, Richildam et Gislam" are named (in order) as the four daughters of Boso and Willa by Liudprand[141]. Willa is named "rex Hugo neptim suam…ex Willa uxore sua Boso Tusciæ provinciæ marchio regis frater" by Liudprand when he records her marriage to Berengario[142]. She ordered the imprisonment of Adelheid, widow of her husband's predecessor Lothaire [de Provence] King of Italy. She retreated with her husband to the fortress of San Leo in the face of Otto King of Germany's invasion, but was captured and taken to Bamberg with Berengario. Regino records that Willa became a nun after her husband died before he was buried[143]. m ([930/31]) BERENGARIO II Marchese di Ivrea, son of ADALBERTO I Conte e Marchese di Ivrea & his first wife Gisela di Friulia ([900]-in prison Bamberg 6 Jul 966). He was proclaimed BERENGARIO II King of Italy in Dec 950.
