[PRO5281] Richard, Count of Rouen.

[PRO5291] Richard, Count of Amiens, died 825.

[PRO5301] Buvinus de Autun, (probably) Count of Autun, married [PROT309] Richilde (daughter of Count Boson III, see under TURIN LINE below). He died 862, and afterwards Richilde married 2. a much older [SENS281] Thierry de Autun (born c.799, see SENS COUNTY).

[JUST311] Richard (son of Buvinus), Count of Autun, Justiciar of Burgundy, etc, married Adelaide (see BURGUNDY (HOUSE OF AUTUN) KINGDOM.

[PRO5313] --- (unnamed daughter of Buvinus) married [CHAS301] Count Thierri (see CHALONS COUNTY).

[PRO5314] Richilda d'Italy (daughter of Buvinus) married [CARO269] EMPEROR CHARLES le chauve OF FRANCE, see CAROLINGIAN HOUSE).

[PRO5311] Boson V de Provence (son of Buvinus) married 1. ---; then 2. (March 876) [CARO282] Ermengard (born c.859, illegitimate daughter of [CARO271] EMPEROR LOUIS OF FRANCE, see CAROLINGIAN HOUSE). Boson was lay abbot of St. Maurice d'Agaune (869), Count of Vienne (871), Count of Bourges (872), dux in Italy (876), and King of Provence (879-887). He died at Vienne (11th January 887), and afterwards Ermengarde and their son Louis fled to the court of their uncle, King Charles the fat of France. Charles adopted Louis (June 887), in recognition that he was a grandson of EMPEROR LOUIS. Ermengarde died 896.

[PRO5324] Ermengarde (daughter of King Boson & Ermengard) married [CHAS311] Manasses I le vieux (see CHALONS COUNTY).

[PRO5325] Willa (born 873?, daughter of King Boson, but mother uncertain) married 1. (c.880-85) [BURK321] King Rodolphe I of Burgundy (see JURANE BURGUNDY KINGDOM); then 2. (912) King Hugh of Provence and Italy (see below under TURIN LINE).

[PRO5326] Engelberga (daughter of King Boson & Ermengard) married (c.900) [HEBG291] DUKE WILLIAM I  the pious (see SEPTIMANIA).

[PRO5321] Louis the blind (born 880, son of King Boson & Ermengard) was betrothed (June/July 901) to Anna (born c.882, daughter of EMPEROR LEO VI of BYZANTIUM). However there is no proof that the marriage actually took place. Anna probably died soon afterwards, as her younger half-sister (born 903-04) was also named Anna. It seems probable that instead Louis married (c.902-05) Adelaide (possibly daughter of King Rudolf I of Burgundy). Louis was King of Provence (890-922), EMPEROR (900-01), and King of Italy (900-05, deposed). Louis was blinded by Berengar (905) for breaking his promise never to return to Italy. He retreated to Provence for the remainder of his life. He died at Arles (5th June 928).

[PRO5332] Charles-Constantine (born c.901, son of Louis & Adelaide) married [SENS312] Teutberga (presumably daughter of Count Garnier, see SENS COUNTY). He was Count of Vienne, and died c.962.

[PRO5342] Constantia (presumed daughter of Charles-Constantine) married (before 942) [PRO3301] Count Boson II (see PROVENCE (HOUSE OF AGEL) COUNTY).

[PRO5341] Richard de Vienne (born c.922, son of Charles-Constantine), Prince of Provence, died 962.

[PRO5352] Fredeburga de Vienne (born c.950, daughter of Richard) married  [VIE2361] Sire Guigues IV (see VIENNE DAUPHINS).

Theotbald died 895, and afterwards Bertha married 2. (895-98) [TUSC281] Adalbert II, March Count of Tuscany (see TUSCANY MARCH COUNTY). Bertha died March 924-25.

(932) Marozia (daughter of Theophylactus I, Count of Tuscany, widow of Count Guido of Lucca (see ESTE MARCH COUNTY), died 932; then 4. (December 937, after her abduction) Bertha von Swabia (daughter of DUKE BURCHARD II OF SWABIA, see RATHIEN COUNTY), died 965-66. He died 10th April 947.
