Du nouveau sur les comtesses catalanes (IXe-XIIe siècles)

Abstract : Recent works raise questions about or complete data on the origins of 22 Catalan countesses that the author had studied in two previous publications. These modifications bring nuances to the model of consanguineous endogamy that the counts were to have practiced during the Carolingean period. They root these princes more in Occitania : their matrimonial strategies were aimed more at establishing efficient alliances with their close Languedocian neighbors than at making prestigious far away ones. The wedding of Mahaut de Pouille, wife of Raymond Bérenger II, one of the exceptions to this rule of Occitanian marriages, can now, at last, be understood thanks to a clearer documentary background.
