She is named as wife of Acfred in their son's grant to Cluny dated 2 Oct , her origin being deduced from his reference to " …avunculis meis Wilelmo et Guarino… " in the same document . He is called " domno illustrissimo marchione Alvernorum et comite Matisconensi " in his charter dated Dec . Will dated 11 Oct He succeeded as Comte d'Auvergne. Poitou was captured by the forces of Eudes King of France, who gave the county to his brother Robert although the latter was expelled by Comte Aimar . He was recognised as Comte du Limousin in .
On the other hand, a charter dated was confirmed by " Guillelmus comes…post mortem patris sui " . He was appointed lay abbot of Saint-Hilaire-de-Poitiers in Jan . Comte d'Auvergne et de Limoges He abdicated in , and became a monk at Saint-Cyprien de Poitiers . He swore homage in to Raoul de Bourgogne King of France, who rewarded him by appointing him Duke of Aquitaine  , Comte d'Auvergne and with the territory of the Marquisate of Gothie. He was also the suzerain lord of the counties of Carcassonne, Albigeois, Rouergue and Quercy.
The distinction between " fratris " and germani " in this charter indicates that Genese was born from an earlier marriage of his father. Vicomte d'Auvergne. Biliomo " to Sauxillanges, for the souls of " Stephani episcopus Willelmi fratris eius Aucende uxoris eiusdem domni Widoni " . The cartulary of Paray-le-Monial includes a charter undated of " in pago Claromontensi Bertrannus vicecomes Arvernensis " . Aucende uxoris eiusdem domni Widoni " . Abbot of Conques. Bishop of Clermont. He founded Saint-Germain, Lambron in The primary source which confirms his parentage has not yet been identified.
This charter does not explain the relationship between the three main donors. However, it is possible that they are two brothers and their sister-in-law who are confirming the donations of their deceased brother, father of the two named children. The charter dated Feb refers to "[ avunculus meus ]…[ Austorgius ]" in two separate parts of the text.
It is possible that these refer to two different individuals of the same name, although this is not without doubt. One possible interpretation is that one set of " avunculi " were paternal uncles and the other maternal. However, it seems unlikely that Bishop Etienne would have had uncles with the unusual name Eustorge on both sides of his family. Whatever the solution, both sets of uncles are shown here separately. It appears that the document is dated too late for him to have been Eustorge [I].
Seigneur de Thiern. La Mure does not cite the primary source on which this assertion is based, although it would appear that he is indicating the same Matfred who is named in the charters dated and It is possible that Etienne was the son one of one of the above-named brothers. Etienne [II] Bishop of Clermont donated property to Saint-Julien de Brioude for the souls of " …Austorgii avunculi mei et filiorum eius Austorgii et Vuillelmi, et etiam Rotberti abbatis " by charter dated Feb .
Her marriage is confirmed by the undated charter under which her son " Willelmus " donated property " in villa…Badaonus in vicaria Nonatensi " to Sauxillanges, for the souls of " genitorum meorum Eustorgii et Blithiardis et fratris mei Eustorgii " . The name of Armand's wife is not known. Archbishop of Lyon. It is assumed that Robert was related to this family but there is no indication what the precise relationship may have been. The primary source which confirms the parentage of Comte Guillaume has not been identified.
Baluze states that he was the brother of Comte Guy but cites no primary source on which this statement is based . He is named in charters of his wife quoted below. Stephani, Rotberti, Willelmi, Widoni The Flandria Generosa names " Ermengardis comitissa Arvenensis " as sister of " Constantia regina Francorum ", when outlining the basis for the consanguinity between their great-great-grandchildren, Baudouin VII Count of Flanders and [Hawise] de Bretagne, which provided the grounds for the couple's separation . It has been assumed in many secondary sources  that this passage means that "Ermengarde" was the full sister of Queen Constance who was the third wife of Robert II King of France and therefore that she was the daughter of Guillaume [II] Comte de Provence by his second marriage to Adelais d'Anjou.
However, this is chronologically impossible. Even if this date is inaccurate, the estimated birth date of Ermengarde junior's eldest son is , and the marriage of her daughter is dated to although the chronology suggests that this may have been an infant betrothal or marriage. Assuming that there is a degree of accuracy in these three dates, the daughter of "Ermengarde" Ctss d'Auvergne could not have been born later than  at the latest. This places the birth of "Ermengarde" senior to  at the very latest, about five years before Adelais's marriage to Guillaume Comte de Provence.
However, this raises yet more difficulties. Assuming that the " nepotes " of Comte Pons are named in order of seniority in the charter, " Vuillelmi " would have been the youngest brother.

No other reference has been to found to his assumed older brothers Etienne and Robert. If this is correct, it would raise doubts about the use of the title " vicecomes " in the charter, as their father would still have been at the height of his power. If this is correct, "Ermengarde" would in fact have been "Humberge", who, as shown above, is named in other primary sources as the wife of Comte Guillaume. The name of Comte Robert [I]'s wife is not known. As explained above under his mother Humberge, it is unlikely that she was Ermengarde, daughter of Adelais d'Anjou, either by her first husband Etienne de Brioude or by her fourth husband Guillaume [II] Comte de Provence.
Comte d'Auvergne et de Clermont. Comte d'Auvergne et de Gevaudan. Etienne is placed first in the list of subscribers, after his supposed mother, presumably because of his ecclesiastical position. The charter does not specify the relationship between the subscribers and the donor. However, the names suggest that they were her sons. If that is correct, Guy may have been her youngest son. As discussed above under her assumed mother Humberge, less chronological difficulties result if Ermengarde was in fact the daughter of Guillaume [IV] Comte d'Auvergne.
The date of her marriage is fixed by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which names " comitissam Turonensem Ermengardem " as wife of " Odonem Campaniensem comitem " when recording in their joint restoration of " Turonis maioris monasterii " . A charter dated records that " Rothbertus comes et eius uxor Berta, filia Ugonis Rutenensis comitis " donated " abbatiam sancti Amancii " to Saint-Victor, Marseille .
Ctss de Rouergue et de Gevaudun. She became a nun at Saint-Pierre de Cornillon, Grenoble after her husband died . Nun at La Chaise-Dieu. Comte d'Auvergne et de Velay. Malaterra names " filiam eius…Emmam…de prima uxore Judicta " when recording that her father arranged her marriage to Philippe I King of France, in return for a generous dowry, not knowing that the king was still married to Bertha of Holland.
She left for France, but when the king's marital status came to light, the dowry was sent back to Sicily and her marriage to the Comte de Clermont was arranged by her brother-in-law Raymond de Saint-Gilles . Baluze is extremely sceptical about the reliability of these statements and suggests that the "comte de Clermont" in question may have been a member of the Clermont [Chiaramonte] family which is recorded from the early 12th century in southern Italy .
Emma married [secondly] Rodolfo Macabeo Conte di Montescaglioso. The name of Robert's wife is not known. His parentage is confirmed by the record of the elevation of the relics of St Austremoine in Mauzac abbey, dated 10 Apr , which names " Robertum Claromontensem episcopum " and " W. Prior at Brioude. Baluze traces this hypothesis to a source printed in but is sceptical about its accuracy .
However, if this is correct it is unclear why Guillaume Comte de Rodez would have appointed as his heir a maternal relative in preference to a more remote connection through his paternal line. A charter dated records an agreement between the abbot of Saint-Michel de Cluse, Piemonte and " comiti Roberto " . The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names " sorore ducis Burgundie " as wife of " Roberti [comitis Alvernie] " but does not name her . Dame de Limais, by grant as dowry. The primary source which confirms her name has not yet been identified.
Her place of burial is confirmed by the 24 Feb O. His parentage, and the fact that he succeeded his father, is confirmed by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which records that " Robertus frater Guilelmi et Guidonis comitum Alvernie " was installed as Bishop of Clermont in Auvergne in . His parentage is confirmed by the Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines which records that " Robertus frater Guilelmi et Guidonis comitum Alvernie " was installed as Bishop of Clermont in Auvergne in .

The trouble with women. The context. The witness. Mother goddesses. The couple. Mary Magdalen. Soredamors and Fenice. The Sins of Women. The Fall. Speaking to Women. From these genealogical works a picture emerges of the lives these women led, the values they held, and the way in which they were viewed by the ecclesiastical and chivalric writers who immortalized them. The first section of the text outlines the ways in which the dead - in both memory and legend - served to bond noble society in the 12th century, Drawing on the "Gesta" by Dudo of Saint Quentin, the second section reflects on the roles that wives, concubines, and other women played during times of war and in the great exchanges of power that established the grand lineages of the Middle Ages.
The final part of the book reconstructs women as wives, mothers and widows through the work of Lambert, Priest of Ardres. Focusing on medieval notions of women and love, the author studies women's biographies and analyzes how female characters were treated in fable and legend, pointing to the social and political forces at work in these representations. The historical personages include Eleanor of Aquitane, whose several marriages brought her wealth and autonomy; the virtuous Heloise; and the visionary Juette.
The book also considers the literary figures of St Marie-Madeleine, a composite figure who personified the essential female traits of frailty, ardent love and evangelicism; Iseult, literary beloved of Tristan; and two other emblematic figures, Doree d'Amour and Phenix - women who became ladies through chivalrous love. The book seeks to offer new insights on courtly love and the representations of women under medieval patriarchy. Georges Duby bases his account here on a twelfth-century genre which commemorated the virtues of noblewomen who had died, and the roles they had played in the history of their lineage.
From these genealogical works a vivid picture emerges of the lives these women led, the values they held, and the way in which they were viewed by the priest and knights who wrote about them. The first section outlines the way in which the dead, and the memory and tales of the dead, served to bond noble society in the twelfth century. The second draws on the Gesta, written by Dudo of Saint Quentin, and reflects on what it tells us about the roles ascribed to wives and concubines and women, in war and in power.
The third and final section reconstructs women as wives, mothers and widows through the work of Lambert, Priest of Ardres. This book is part of a three-volume work on women in the Middle Ages. It will be of great interest to students and researchers in medieval history, social history and women's history. By the twelfth century, the Church had begun to take the role and expectations of women seriously, and the clerical writings discussed in this work address the particular issues that emerged from this development. In the first chapter, 'The Sins of Women', Duby concentrates on the sins deemed to be particular to women amongst others these include sorcery, disobedience, and licentiousness and focuses especially on the male fear of female sexuality and magic.
The second chapter is based on twelfth-century commentaries on the chapters in Genesis dealing with Eve's role in the fall from grace in the Garden of Eden. Interpreting these writings, and the earlier writings upon which they were based, Duby shows how they reflect the reasoning behind the view held of women as unstable, curious, and frivolous creatures. The third section is based on letters written by clerics to women of noble status and nuns. Here, while the charges of instability and frivolousness are once again levelled at women, their praise is also sung for their marital and motherly values.
The final section concentrates solely on the most famous text of this period by Andreas Capellanus De Amore , and sets it within the context of the supposed twelfth-century discovery of love and the courtly love tradition. As the third and last part of Duby's three-volume study of the lives of French noblewomen of the twelfth century, this book confirms the author as one of the greatest historians of the Middle Ages.
It will be of great interest to students and researchers of medieval history and women's history, as well as anyone interested in the historical relationship between women and the Church. Focusing on France in the twelfth century, Duby recreates the image of women that the men of high society made for themselves. Using written evidence from the period - official texts written by men, all intended for public consumption and reading aloud - he tells the story of six very different women.
These women - fictional and real, religious and secular - range from famous historical figures such as Eleanor of Aquitaine and H, through Mary Magdalen, whose cult grew throughout the twelfth century, to Soredamors and Fenice, the heroines of Clig, the romance of Chr de Troyes. Duby sets all of these women within their historical context, using their personalities to explore the characteristics of female existence during this period.
He discusses relations between the sexes, including marriage and different types of love, and shows how women were feared, mistrusted and, sometimes, admired by men. He vividly reconstructs the French nobility's system of values, examining the place assigned to women within this system.
He argues that men's attitudes to women began to change in the twelfth century and that women began imperceptibly to extricate themselves from masculine power. This important book - the first of three volumes on women in the Middle Ages - will be of interest to a wide readership. F7 D B V. Paris : Gallimard, Description Book — xxvi, p. D93 Available.

History continues . Histoire continue. Chicago : University of Chicago Press, Summary In this autobiography, Georges Duby looks back on a career that has led him to be called one of the most distinguished historians in the Western world. Since its beginning in the s, Duby's career has been rich and varied, encompassing economic history, social history, the history of mentalites, art history, microhistory, urban history, the history of women and sexuality and, most recently, the Church's influence on feudal society.
In retracing this singular career path, Duby candidly remembers his life's most formative influences, including the historians Marc Bloch and Lucien Febvre, the Annales School so closely associated with them, and the College de France. Duby also offers insights about the proper methods of gathering and using archival data and on constructing penetrating interpretations of the documents. Indeed, his discussion of how he chose his subjects, collected his materials, developed the arguments, erected the scaffolding and constructed his theses offers the best introduction to the craft available to aspiring historians.
This book is both a memoir of one of this century's great scholars and a history of the French historical school since the midth century. Georges Duby, a member of the Academie francaise, for many years held the distinguished chair in medieval history at the College de France. D83 A3 Available. Love and marriage in the Middle Ages .

It also argues that the structure of sexual relationships took its cue from the family and from feudalism.
