M, b. March 20, 1176, d. January 20, 1232

Parents

Family: Beatrix Marguerite Of Geneva Faucigny (b. circa 1180, d. April 8, 1257)

  • Birth: Thomas I Count Of Savoy was born on March 20, 1176 in Carbonierres, Savoie, Rhône-Alpes, France.
  • Marriage: He and Beatrix Marguerite Of Geneva Faucigny were married in May 1195.
  • Death: Thomas I Count Of Savoy died on January 20, 1232, at age 55, in Aoste, Isere, France.
  • Note: Count of Savoy
    He was Count of Savoy from 1189 - 1233. He was the son of Humbert III of Savoy and Beatrice of Viennois. His birth was seen as miraculous; his monkish father had despaired of having a male heir after three wives. Count Humbert sought counsel from St. Anthelm, who blessed Humbert three times, and it was seen as a prophecy come true when Thomas was born shortly after Anthelm himself died on June 26, 1178. He was named in honor of St. Thomas Becket.

    Thomas possessed the martial abilities, energy, and brilliance that his father lacked, and Savoy enjoyed a golden age under his leadership. He had taken over effective rule of Savoy by August 1191, and despite his youth he began the push north-west into new territories. He conquerored Vaud, Bugey, and Carignano. He supported the Hohenstaufens, and was known as "Thomas the Ghibelline" due to his career as Imperial Vicar of Lombardy.

    In 1195 he ambushed the party of Count William I of Geneva, which was escorting the count's daughter, Marguerite, to France for her intended wedding to King Philip II of France. Thomas carried off Marguerite and married her himself, producing some eight sons and six daughters.

  • Note: Weis' "Ancestral Roots. . ." (133:26).

    Quoting from Christopher Cope's, "The Lost Kingdom of Burgundy" : "Humbert III, who reigned from 1149 to 1189, . . . was a man of irresolute spirit who was disconsolate at being born a prince and preferred the seclusion of a monestery. He only renounced his chosen state of celibacy so as to give his land an heir . . . " Two wives produced only a daughter. "Humbert gave up and became a Carthusian monk . . . As the anciant chronicle narrates, the barons, knights, and people of Savoy went to the abbot to beg him to restore their count to them, but his marriage . . . again only produced a daughter; Humbert was about to withdraw to the abbey of Aulps when he was prevailed on to marry yet again, and his fourth wife gave him an heir who fortunately had the kingly qualities which Humbert lacked." Weis' "Ancestral Roots . . ." (133:36), however, has the third wife, BEATRIX OF MACON as THOMAS' mother. Europaische Stammtafeln ii, 190 confirms BEATRIX.

Amadeo III Count Of Savoy

M, b. circa 1092, d. April 1, 1148

Parents

Family: Maud Countess Of Albon (b. circa 1092)

Biography

  • Birth: Amadeo III Count Of Savoy was born circa 1092 in Savoie, Aube, Champagne-Ardenne, France.
  • Death: He died on April 1, 1148.
  • Note: Count of Savoy and Maurienne He was the son of Humbert II of Savoy and Gisela of Burgundy, daughter of William I of Burgundy, and succeeded as count on the death of his father. Amadeus had a tendency to exaggerate his titles, and also claimed to be Duke of Lombardy, Duke of Burgundy, Duke of Chablais, and vicar of the Holy Roman Empire, the latter of which had been given to his father by Henry IV, Holy Roman Emperor. He helped restore the Abbey of St. Maurice of Augane, in which the former kings of Burgundy had been crowned, and of which he himself was abbott until 1147. He also founded the Abbey of St. Sulpicius in Bugey, the Abbey of Tamié in the Bauges, and the Abbey of Hautecombe on the Lac du Bourget. He had no children with his first wife Adelaide. In 1123 he married Mahaut (or Mafalda, or Matilda) of Albon, the sister of Guy IV of Dauphinois, with whom he had 10 children In 1128, Amadeus extended his realm, known as the "Old Chablais", by adding to it the region extending from the Arve to the Dranse d'Abondance, which came to be called the "New Chablais" with its capital at St. Moritz. Despite his marriage to Mahaut, he still fought against his brother-in-law Guy, who was killed at the Battle of Montmeillan. Following this, King Louis VI of France, married to Amadeus' sister Adélaide de Maurienne, attempted to confiscate Savoy. Amadeus was saved by the intercession of Peter the Hermit, and by his promise to participate in Louis' planned crusade. In 1147, he accompanied his nephew Louis VII of France and his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine on the Second Crusade. He financed his expedition with help from a loan from the Abbey of St. Maurice. In his retinue were many barons from Savoy, including the lords of Faucigny, Seyssel, La Chambre, Miolans, Montbel, Thoire, Montmayeur, Vienne, Viry, La Palude, Blonay, Chevron-Villette, Chignin, and Châtillon. Amadeus travelled south through Italy to Brindisi, where he crossed over to Durazzo, and marched east along the Via Egnatia to meet Louis at Constantinople in late 1147. After crossing into Anatolia, Amadeus, who was leading the vanguard, became separated from Louis near Laodicea, and Louis' forces were almost entirely destroyed.

    Marching on to Adalia, Louis, Amadeus, and other barons decided to continue to Antioch by ship. On the journey, Amadeus fell ill on Cyprus, and died at Nicosia in April of 1148. He was buried in the Church of St. Croix in Nicosia. In Savoy, his son Humbert III succeeded him, under the regency of bishop Amadeus of Lausanne. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.)
