Jeanne DE MONTFORT
- Born: Between 1255 and 1260
- Married (1): 1268
- Married (2): 1278
- Died: 1300
Her birth date range is estimated from the birth of her first child (by her first marriage) in [1274/75]. Jeanne must have been considerably older than her sister Eléonore, considering her own estimated birth date and that her sister gave birth to four children after her marriage in [1295/1302].
Charter dated [1/28] Nov 1282 records an agreement between the monks of Cluny and "Ludovicum dominum Bellijoci", and names “dominam Ysabellam matrem suam, relictam domini Raynaudi, quondam comitis Forensis, patris sui” and “dominam Johannam, relictam Guidonis, quondam fratris dicti Ludovici, et comitis Forensis”. The court of Lyon confirmed the guardianship of "Gioanni figlio pupillo di Guidone Conte di Forest" naming "Gioanna di Monfort Contessa di Forest Madre del detto Gioanni" and her second marriage with "Lodovico di Savoia Signore di Vaud fratello del Conte Amedeo" by charter dated 23 Jun 1283. The testament of "Gioanna di Monfort Contessa di Forest Moglie di Ludovico de Savoia Signore di Vaud" dated Nov 1293 chooses her burial "nel Monastero di Montbron" and makes bequests to "a Gioanni di lei figlio Conte di Forest…ad Isabella di Lei figlia moglie di Berardo di Merevel…a Lora, Margarita, Gioannetta, Beatrice, Eleonora, Cattarina e Bianca pur sue figlie…a Pietro di Lei figlio…altri suoi Benidto Lodovico suo figlio". She is not named in the agreement dated 15 May 1295 which records the partition of property between her brother and sisters (see above), which suggests that she may have died before that date.
Jeanne married Guy VI DE FOREZ Count of Forez, son of Renaud DE FOREZ Count of Forez and Isabelle DE BEAUJEU, in 1268. (Guy VI DE FOREZ Count of Forez died on 19 Jan 1278.)
Jeanne also married Louis I DE SAVOIE Baron de Vaud, son of Thomas II DE SAVOIE Count of Savoy, Aosta & Moriana and Beatrice DI FIESCHI, in 1278. (Louis I DE SAVOIE Baron de Vaud was born about 1254 and died after 10 Jan 1302.)
