Theodoric D' AUTUN "the Treasurer"
- Born: Abt 790, Autun, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne, France
- Died: 30 Nov 880, Chaumois, Saone-et-Loire, Bourgogne, France
Count of Chaumois and Autun.
He was served as Chamberlain for King Charles "the Bald" of France before 877.
Settipani quotes a list from Faremoutiers which names "Hiltibrandus mo[nachos]…Theoterichus com[es], Hæckardus, Bernardus…", suggesting that the last three were brothers, sons of the first named. "Heccardus comes" placed his assets at the disposal of testamentary executors by charter dated to [Jan 876], for the souls of "genitoris mei Hildebranni…genitrice mea Dunana germanoque meo Theoderico necnon et uxoribus Albegundis et Richildis". Settipani suggests that Theoderic "le Trésorier" was the brother of Ecchard. However, this would imply a time-span of more than 40 years of activity as an adult, which seems rather long for the 9th century. In addition, the testamentary disposition of Ecchard makes no connection between "…Theoderico et Richardo filio eius…" (which presumably refers to Theoderic "le Trésorier" and his son) and "…germanoque meo Theoderico…" (one of the named individuals for whose souls the dispositions were made). Another charter issued by "Heccardus comes" around the same time jointly with "coniunx mea Richeldis" proves that not all the named "soul" beneficiaries were dead.
