(Aft 882-Aft 924)
Ermengarde DE PROVENCE
- Born: After 882
- Died: After Jun 924
Also called Ermengarde DE VIENNE.
The existence of more than one daughter of King Boson & his second wife is confirmed by the charter dated 11 Aug 887 under which Emperor Karl III confirms a donation by "neptam nostram Hermingardim…filioque suo Hludouuico nepoti nostro et sororibus eius". It is not known how many other daughters there may have been. The Annales Bertiniani name "Richardus frater Bosonis" when recording that, after the capture of Vienne by the forces of King Carloman, he took “uxorem Bosonis et filiam eius” back to “comitatum suum Augustudensem” in 882, which suggests that any other children were born after the siege of Vienne. One version of the Series abbatum Flaviniacensium, as reproduced only in a 17th century secondary source, records that "Richardus dux et Ingelbertus" installed "Vualonem, fratrem Manasserii comitis qui gener erat B fratris Richardi ducis" as abbot of Flavigny which, if correct, means that the wife of Manassès was the daughter of King Boson. If this is right, her name suggests that she was the daughter of his second wife, although Chaume proposed that she was the daughter of his first marriage. 1
Ermengarde married Cte Manassès II DE DIJON, son of Cte Manassès I DE DIJON. (Manassès II DE DIJON
was born in Châlons-Sur-Marne, Marne, Champagne, France and died about 925 in Reulle-Vergy, Cote d'Or, Bourgogne, France.)
