Guigues III of Albon

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Guigues le Vieux comtes d'Albon dit Guigues III (between 1050 and 1060–1133) was the first Count of Albon from 1079, when the County of Vienne, then in the possession of the Archdiocese of Vienne, was divided between him and Humbert I of Savoy, who received Maurienne.

He was the son of Guigues II of Albon and Adelaide of Royans. His ancestors were lords of the castle of Albon and counts (comites) in the Grésivaudan and Briançonnais.

Guigues's regin was marked by continual strife with Hugh of Châteauneuf, Bishop of Grenoble, over the suzerainty of certain church lands in the Grésivaudan. Hugh accused the count of usurping the lands with the help of the Bishop Mallem and invented fantastic stories to back up his claim to the disputed estates. Finally an accord was signed between Guigues and the bishop in 1099. Guigues returned the ecclesiastic land, while Hugh recognised the authority of the count in the vicinity of Grenoble.

In 1095, Guigues contracted an exemplary marriage with the high-born Matilda, long thought to be the daughter of Edgar the Aetheling, but now thought more likely to have been a daughter of Roger I of Sicily, the Great Count, and his third wife, Adelaide del Vasto. Patrick Deret, however, alleges, on the basis of possible birth dates, that her mother must have been Roger's second wife, Eremburga of Mortain.

In 1129, Guigues benefited further from the division of the Viennois between himself and Amadeus III of Savoy. Four years later, he died, leaving as his heir Guigues IV and a second son, Humbert, Archbishop of Vienne. He had three daughters:

   * Garsenda, married William III of Forcalquier
   * Matilda, married Amadeus III of Savoy in 1135
   * Beatrice (born c. 1100), married Josserand de Die (c. 1095–c. 1147)

"Umbertus filius comitis" subscribed a charter dated 1125 under which "Petrus archiepiscopus Viennensis" confirmed donations by his predecessor "Guidonis" to Valence Saint-Rufus[3435], although it is not certain that this refers to Humbert son of Comte Guigues [III]. "La reine Mathilde" donated property to the abbey of Chalais in 1146, confirmed by charter dated 1147 by "Humbert alors évêque du Puy, depuis archévêque de Vienne…le comte Guigues, fils de Guigues dauphin et sa mere"[3436]. Archbishop of Vienne . The necrology of Saint-Robert records the death 26 Jun (20 Nov) 1147 of "Humbert archévêque de Vienne"[3437].

c) GERSENDE . The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. 1152. m GUILLAUME [III] Comte de Forcalquier, son of ARMENGOL [IV] "él de Gerp" Conde de Urgel & his second wife Adélaïde de Provence Ctss de Forcalquier (-Avignon 1129).

d) MATHILDE ([1112/16]-after 30 Mar 1148). The Aymari Rivalli De Allobrogibus records that "Amedeo…secundo, Mauriennæ comiti" married "Guigona Crassi filia"[3438]. The identity of her father is clarified as the passage also names "Humbertus minor Crassi filius" and his appointment ot "archiepiscopatum Viennensem". Europäische Stammtafeln[3439] shows a single marriage of Comte Amédée III, to Mathilde d'Albon, in 1123. It is more likely that Mathilde was his second wife, especially if her likely birth date range is correct. According to Europäische Stammtafeln[3440], Mathilde's parents were married [1106-1110]. The same table shows that Mathilde's two brothers, Guigues and Humbert, were mentioned in 1110, indicating that the marriage must have taken place during the earlier part of this date range, if the range is correct. A third child, Gersende d'Albon, must also have born during the early years of her parents' marriage as she herself gave birth to two sons before (or shortly after) the death of her husband in Oct 1129. Assuming all these dates are correct, the timescale is tight for the birth of a fourth child, Mathilde, before 1112 at the earliest. This would make it impossible for Mathilde to have been the mother of Comte Amédée's oldest daughter Alix. "A. comes et marchio cum uxore sua M." donated property to the monastery of Ripalta, with the support of "eorum filio Umberto", by charter dated 9 Jan 1137[3441]. "Amedeus comes et marchio et Maies comitissa uxor eius et Umbertus eorum filius" donated property to the monastery of Saint-Maurice by charter dated 30 Mar 1143[3442]. "Amedeus comes et marchio" confirmed donations to Saint-Sulpice en Bugey, for the soul of "filii mei Humberti", by charter dated to [1148], which also names "uxore mea Matildi", confirmed by "Aalasia comitissa de Bello Joco…cum filio meo Guichardo"[3443]. "Amedeus comes et marchio et Majes comitissa uxor eius et Umbertus eorum filius" confirmed the rights of the monastery of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune by charter dated 30 Mar 1148[3444]. m ([Jul 1134/1135]) as his second wife, AMEDEE III Comte de Maurienne et de Savoie, son of HUMBERT II "le Renforcé" Comte de Maurienne et de Savoie & his wife Gisèle de Bourgogne [Comté] ([1095]-Nicosia 30 Aug 1148).
