FEMALE Tolosane/Etolane/Attalane

Wife of Aubri I, count of Mâcon.

Tolosane is known from three charters of her son Liétaud. In a charter dated possibly 8 or 12 April 935, count Liétaud and his wife Ermengarde gave property in Dardaniacus to Cluny, where they gave the names of their parents ["... ego Leotaldus, Dei gratia comes, necnon et uxor mea Ermengardis, pro Dei amore et eterna retributione, ut pius Dominus animas nostras vel parentum nostrorum, Alberici atque Tolosane, Manassei et Ermengardis, ..." Cart. Cluny, 1: 420 (#432); for the date, see ibid., 421, n. 1]. In a charter dated 8 May, possibly in 955, Liétaud appears in a charter in which he names his son Aubri and mother Etolana ["Ego Leotaldus, comes Matisconensis, ... pro salute animæ meæ et filii mei Alberici matrisque meæ Etolanæ, ...; Signum Leotaldi, comitis, et uxoris ejus Richeldæ. S. Alberici, filii eorum, qui hoc donum laudando firmaverunt, et scribi jusserunt." Cart. Cluny, 2: 72-3 (#976)]. Aubry's wife appears as Attalane (not Tolane) in another charter of her son Liétaud, dated probably 21 September 942, which also mentions Liétaud's first two wives and his son Aubry II ["Ego Leotaldus gratia Dei comes et uxor mea Berta, pwe amorem Dei, ut pius Dominus animam patris mei Alberici necnon et animam matris mee Attalane, seu et nostris, vel Irmengardis quondam uxoris mee, ... S. Leotaldi comitis. S. Berte uxoris ejus, qui fieri et firmare rogaverunt. S. Alberici filii sui qui consensit. ... Data per manum Berardi, sub die Mercuris, XI kal. octobris, anno VI regnante Hludivico rege." Cart. Mâcon, 283-4 (#488); see also errata on p. 588 for reading of Attalane (instead of "et Tolane"); the regnal year would give 941, but 21 September was on a Wednesday in 942].
