  Research Notes:

Guillaume of Jumièges names “Adeliz” as the first daughter of “dux Richardus” and his wife “Goiffredum Britannorum comitem...sororem...Iudith”, adding that she married “Rainaldo Burgundionum comiti” by whom she had “Willelmum et Widonem” (the marriage is recorded in a later passage). His parentage is also given by Orderic Vitalis.

He succeeded his father in 1057 as GUILLAUME I "le Grand" Comte de Bourgogne. For about ten years he fought his brother Guy ex-Comte de Brionne who attempted to dispossess him. He was one of the princes called upon by Pope Gregory VII in 1074 to help defend St Peter's. He succeeded in 1078 as Comte de Mâcon, when his cousin Guy [II] Comte de Mâcon entered holy orders. 1

  Marriage Information:

Guillaume married Étiennette between 1049 and 1057. (Étiennette was born about 1035 in Bourgogne, France and died on 30 Jun 1109 in Bourgogne, France.)
