Biography

Beatrice of Vienne (1160–1230) was a Countess of Savoy. Originally a member of the House of Mâcon, she was married in 1176 to Humbert III, Count of Savoy.

Biography

Beatrice was born in 1160 in Vienne, France, the second child of Géraud I of Mâcon and Maurette de Salins. She was descended from the House of Mâcon and had seven siblings.

After the death of Humbert III, Count of Savoy's third wife, Clementia of Zähringen, in 1175, Humbert was inconsolable and refused to remarry; however, he had no male heir. His advisers persuaded him to wed Beatrice the following year. Beatrice gave birth to Thomas, Count of Savoy in 1178.

Beatrice died in 1230 in Champagne-et-Fontaine, Aquitaine, France.
