Gisele DE BOURGOGNE

  • Born: Abt 1075, Bourgogne, Marne, France
  • Married (1): 1090
  • Married (2): 1105
  • Died: After 1133

   Research Notes:

Her parentage is deduced from Suger saying that her daughter Adelaide, wife of Louis VI "le Gros" King of France, was the niece of Pope Calixtus II. This is corroborated by "Guido Viennensis archiepiscopus" (later Pope Calixtus II) addressing a letter to "nepoti suo Amedeo comiti" (Amedée III Comte de Savoie, son of Gisèle by her first marriage) dated [1115]. Her date of birth is estimated from her having given birth to five children by her second husband whom she married in [1105], and assuming that she was no more than 17 years old when she gave birth to her first child by her first husband. Her second marriage is confirmed by Orderic Vitalis who records the marriage of Guillaume de Normandie and the daughter of Raniero III Marchese di Monferrato, naming both the bride's parents and specifying that the marriage was arranged by the bride's uterine half-sister, Adélaïde de Maurienne Queen of France. 1

Gisele married Humbert II "le Renforcé" DE SAVOIE Count of Maurienne & Aosta, son of Amadée II DE SAVOIE Count of Savoy, Marchese of Susa and Jeanne DE GENÈVE, in 1090. (Humbert II "le Renforcé" DE SAVOIE Count of Maurienne & Aosta was born about 1072 in Savoie, Rhône-Alpes, France and died on 19 Oct 1103 in Moûtiers, Savoie, Rhône-Alpes, France.)

   Marriage Information:

Gisele also married Rainier II DI MONFERRATO Marchese di Monferrato, son of Guglielmo III DI RAVENNA Marchese di Ravenna and Otta DI AGLEDO, in 1105. (Rainier II DI MONFERRATO Marchese di Monferrato was born about 1075 and died between 1135 and 1137.)
