Generation: 2

  1. 2.  William I "The Great" of Burgundy (son of Renaud I and Adélaïde of Normandy); died on 12 Nov 1087.

    Notes:

    Count of Burgundy and, from 1078, Count of Mâcon.

    Called "tête hardie", "the rash" or "the stubborn".

    William married Stephanie between 1049 and 1057. Stephanie died after 1092. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 3.  Stephanie died after 1092.

    Notes:

    The Wikipedia article about William I, Count of Burgundy, asserts (as of 29 Jun 2015) two wives for him, an "Etiennette de Longuy" that he married circa 1040 and a "Stephanie" that he married before his death in 1087. The article then lists one set of children for Stephanie and another set of "children of either Stephanie or Etiennette". This appears to be confused. [Note that as of 1 May 2016, Wikipedia's article appears to have been cleaned up and corrected.]

    According to Ancestral Roots, William had one wife, whom they identify as "Stephanie, parentage NN". They then note: "Prof. David H. Kelly believes her parentage unproven (2003). De Vajay, in Annales de Bourgogne vol. 32 (1960) 258-261, identifies Stephanie (Etiennette) as dau. of Clemence de Foix & Albert de Longwy, Duke of Lorraine, d. 1048. Clemence is identified as dau. of Bernard I Roger, Comte de Foix, d. 1035, & Garsinde de Bigorre; & Bernard as son of Roger I de Carcassonne & wife Adelaide. Moriarty, The Plantagenet Ancestry of King Edward III and Queen Philippa, supplies pedigree charts for these families, but does not agree with de Vajay as to her identity. Garnier, Tableaux Généalogiques des Souverains de la France et de ses Grand Feudataires, table XXVIII, shows her as dau. of Raymond II, Count of Barcelona."

Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Renaud I (son of Otto-William of Burgundy and Ermentrude de Roucy); died in 1057.

    Notes:

    Count of Burgundy.

    Renaud married Adélaïde of Normandy before 2 Nov 1023. Adélaïde (daughter of Richard II and Judith of Brittany) died after 1074. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Adélaïde of Normandy (daughter of Richard II and Judith of Brittany); died after 1074.

    Notes:

    Sometimes called Judith. "As for Judith being the same person as Adelais, there is no reason to doubt this: she was recorded as Renaud's wife named Adelais in 1023, well before occurring with her mother's name Judith in 1037 (perhaps the alternative was used to distinguish her from her step-mother-in-law Adelais), and she was still living nearly two decades after Renaud's death."
