Dear Newsgroup ~

Mahaut de Courtenay, Countess of Nevers (died c. 1254), referred to
Gaucher de Joigny, Seneschal of Nevers (died c.1237), as her kinsman
("dilectus et fidelis consanguineus meus') in a document dated 1224
[Reference: Maximilien Quantin, Recueil de pièces pour faire suite au
Cartulaire général de L'Yonne (1873): 137]. The two were related in
the 3rd and 2nd degrees of kindred, or if you prefer first cousins once
removed, by virtue of common descent from Guillaume III, Count of
Auxerre, Nevers, and Tonerre, died 1161, as charted below.

1. Guillaume III, Count of Auxerre, Nevers, & Tonerre, died 1161.
2. Guy I, Count of Nevers & Tonerre, died 1175.
3. Agnes, Countess of Nevers & Tonerre, married Pierre de Courtenay,
Emperor of Constantinople.
4. Mahaut de Courtenay, Countess of Nevers, died c. 1254.

1. Guillaume III, Count of Auxerre, Nevers, & Tonerre, died 1161.
2. Adele of Nevers, married Renaud III, Count of Joigny.
3. Gaucher de Joigny, Seneschal of Nevers, died c.1237.

Mahaut de Courtenay, Countess of Nevers, is ancestral to Katherine of
France, wife of King Henry V of England and Owen Tudor, Esquire, and
also to Jacquette de Luxembourg, wife of Sir Richard Wydeville, 1st
Earl Rivers.
