Cte Bernard I DE LA MARCHE
- Born: Abt 992, Marche, Creuse, Limousin, France
- Died: 16 Jun 1047
The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes names "Bernardus" as son of "Aldebertus frater [Helias Petragoricensi comite]" and his wife "sorore Widonis vicecomitis". The Chronicle of Saint-Maxence names "Audeberti comitis Marchiæ…filius Bernardi, qui fuit Audeberti, qui fuit Bosonis, qui Sulpicii, qui fuit Godfredi primi comitis de Karrofo". The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes names "Bernardo filio Hildeberti", specifying that he succeeded in la Marche on the death of Boson Comte de Périgord et de la Marche. He succeeded his uncle in [1003/12] as Comte de la Marche...
[Amelie's] marriage is confirmed by the charter dated to  under which "Guilabertus episcopus filius qui fui Richeldis femine" swore allegiance to her daughter "Almodis comitissa, filia que es Amelie comitisse", also naming "Remundus comes, senior meus, filio qui fuit Sanciæ comitisse". The wording of this document also confirms that Amélie was still alive at that date. It is possible that Amélie was related to Ermengarde, daughter of Hugues Garsinus de Corson, who married Bernard Vicomte de Comborn (see AQUITAINE NOBILITY), as she donated to Uzerche her share in property at "Montecenso", part of which was later donated by Amélie´s son Eudes Comte de la Marche (see below). If this hypothesis is correct, the chronology suggests that Amélie would have belonged to the previous generation and therefore could have been the sister of Hugues de Corson. Amélie must have died soon after this charter as a charter also dated to  records that "Udalardus filius que sum Ermengardis feminæ" swore allegiance to "domne Almodi comitissæ, filia quæ fuisti Ameliæ comitissæ".
Bernard married Amélie. (Amélie died about 1053.)
