My Ancestor

Otto-William of Macon was born in 958 during the joint reign of his grandfather, King Berengar II of Italy, and his father, King Adalbert. His mother was Gerberga of Macon. His mother gave him what would later be the Free County of Burgundy around Dole in 982. Otto also inherited the duchy of Burgundy on the other side of the Saone in 1002 from his stepfather Eudes Henry the Great. The duchy then corresponded to the diocese of Besancon in the Holy Roman Empire. By 990 Otto-William was the Count of Nevers. He was also Count of Macon in France.

While the son of a king, he did not himself seek a royal wife. In c. 975—80 he married Ermentrude of Roucy whose maternal grandmother, Gerberga of Saxony was a sister of Otto I, Holy Roman Emperor and by this marriage alliance it caused a web of consanguinity between later kings of France, Germany, Burgundy and the Carolingians. Even his children's spouses, although from great families, came from widespread and scattered parts of France.

Burgundy was annexed to the crown of France by King Robert II in 1004. Determined to be sovereign ruler of his own lands, Otto revolted against the Emperor Henry II in 1016. This was after Rudolph III of Burgundy, the last king of that realm, had done homage to Henry at Strasbourg making him his guard and heir. On Otto's death, the Free County fell under the suzerainty of the German emperors. Otto-William died 21 September, 1026 at the age of 64.
