The aristocracy in the county of Champagne, 1100-1300 by Theodore Evergates( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theodore Evergates provides the first systematic analysis of the aristocracy in the county of Champagne under the independent counts. He argues that three factors- the rise of the comital state, fiefholding, and the conjugal family - were critical to shaping a loose assortment of baronial and knightly families into an aristocracy with shared customs, institutions, and identity. Evergates mines the rich, varied, and in some respects unique collection of source materials from Champagne to provide a dynamic picture of a medieval aristocracy and its evolving symbiotic relationship with the counts." "Count Henry the Liberal (1152-81) began the process of transforming a quasi-independent baronage accustomed to collegial governance into an elite of landholding families subordinate to the count and his officials. By the time Countess Jeanne married the future King Philip IV of France in 1284, the fiefholding families of Champagne had become a distinct provincial nobility. Throughout, it was the conjugal community, rather than primogeniture or patrilineage, that remained the core familial institution determining the customs regarding community property, dowry, dower, and partible inheritance. Those customs guaranteed that every lineage would survive, but frequently through a younger son or daughter. The life courses of women and men, influenced not only by social norms but also by individual choice and circumstance, were equally unpredictable. Evergates concludes that imposed models of "the aristocratic family" fail to capture the diversity of individual lives and lineages within one of the more vibrant principalities of medieval France."--Jacket
The cartulary and charters of Notre-Dame of Homblières by Notre-Dame d'Homblières (Monastery)( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in 3 languages and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cartulary of Countess Blanche of Champagne( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cartulary of Countess Blanche of Champagne examines the countess' twenty-one-year regency (1201-22) through her cartulary - a manuscript copy of legal and otherwise public documents usually intended as an archival aid and as a security duplicate. Surviving intact to this day, the 1224 volume is unusual in that it was commissioned as a personal, commemorative document for the countess in retirement, after a successful career in which she preserved the county from a divisive civil war, expanded the county's borders, and transformed comital-baronial relationships.The 443 letters contained in the cartulary deal with practical matters of governance such as homages, fiefs, and the rights of lordship, and are here used by Theodore Evergates as a dossier for observing the practices of a major French principality and its aristocracy in the first two decades of the thirteenth century
Littere baronum : the earliest cartulary of the counts of Champagne( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and Latin and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cartulary of 1211 is the oldest surviving register produced by the chancery of the counts of Champagne. This first edition of the cartulary contains 121 letters received from the barons and prelates of the county during the rule of Count Thibaut III (1198-1201) and the first decade of the regency of his widow, Countess Blanche (1201-22).They deal primarily with feudal matters--homage, tenure, the construction and rendering of castles--and lordship over property and rural communities. Since only one-third of the original letters survive, the cartulary copies are particularly valuable in capturing the range of written records entering the chancery of a major French principality around 1200.The introduction to the volume traces the evolution of aristocratic letters patent from the 1140s and argues that they were far more important in the twelfth century, both for transactions between laymen and for transactions with religious houses, than historians of medieval diplomacy have allowed. The introduction goes on to discuss the evolution of the chancery in the twelfth century, the creation of a formal chancery archive in the 1190s, and the organization and contents of the cartulary complied in 1211
Henry the Liberal : Count of Champagne, 1127-1181 by Theodore Evergates( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the course of the twelfth century, the county of Champagne grew into one of the wealthiest and most important of French principalities, home to a large and established aristocracy, the site of international trade fairs, and a center for artistic, literary, and intellectual production. It had not always been this way, notes Theodore Evergates, who charts the ascent of Champagne under the rule of Count Henry the Liberal. Tutored in the liberal arts and mentored in the practice of lordship from an early age, Henry commanded the barons and knights of Champagne on the Second Crusade at twenty and succeeded as count of Champagne at twenty-five. Over the next three decades Henry immersed himself in the details of governance, most often in his newly built capital in Troyes, where he resolved disputes, confirmed nonlitigious transactions, and monitored the disposition of his fiefs. He was a powerful presence beyond the county as well, serving in King Louis VII's military ventures and on diplomatic missions to the papacy and the monarchs of England and Germany. Evergates presents a chronicle of the transformation of the lands east of Paris as well as a biography of one of the most engaging princes of twelfth-century France. Count Henry was celebrated for balancing the arts of governance with learning and for his generosity and inquisitive mind, but his enduring achievement, Evergates makes clear, was to transform the county of Champagne into a dynamic principality within the emerging French state
