Hucbert (820 - 864) was a Frank and son of Boso the Elder. Therefore he was a Bosonid. His sister was Teutberga, who married Lothair II, a prince of the Carolingian dynasty, the imperial family of Francia. Hucbert was lay-abbot of the Abbey of Saint Maurice-in-Valais.

Lothair's reign was chiefly occupied by his efforts to obtain a divorce from his wife Theutberga, and his relations with his uncles Charles the Bald and Louis the German were influenced by his desire to obtain their support for this endeavor. Lothair, whose desire for the divorce was prompted by his affection for a woman named Waldrada, put away Theutberga, but Hucbert took up arms on her behalf.

In 863 it was reported that he took by force the Abbey Lobbe and expelled its abbot . Hucbert was finally killed in 864 or more probably 866 , in a battle near d ' Orb against the Count of Paris, who succeeded him in his duchy and title Abbot of St. Maurice.

From a wife whose name was unknown, Hucbert is the father of:

  1. Theobald of Arles (-?) who married Bertha , illegitimate daughter of Lothair II .
