"Filia Wilelmi comitis de Burgundia Hermentrudis et filii sui Fridericus, Raginaudus, Theodericus" founded the Cluniac abbey of Froidefontaine by charter dated 8 Mar 1105 in which she names "suis antecessoribus…filiis autem Theoderici atque sue uxoris Hermentrudis, Lodewico, Wilelmo, Hugone"[1]. He inherited his families territories along the Meuse valley in 1103. He was expelled by his Meuse subjects in [1113] because of his intolerable behaviour, and transferred to the county of Montbéliard: the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Theodericus" as brother of "Raynaldum…comes Barri et Montionis" specifying that Thierry was expelled in 1113 and retained only the county of Montbéliard[2]. Comte de Montbéliard.

A charter dated to [1145] confirms the donations to Belchamp abbey by "dominus Theodericus comes de Monte Beligardis", with the consent of "Theoderici filii sui"[4].

"Theodericus comes de Monte Biligardis" donated toll revenues to numerous abbeys, after the death of "Theoderici filii mei", by charter dated 1160[6].
