Chapter Summary

Blanche of Artois and Burgundy (1296/971325/26) was the luckless daughter of Count Otto of Burgundy (ca. 12391303) and Countess Mahaut of Artois (ca. 12691329). The baron was one of those who profited from the shady activities of Abb Jean-Baptiste-Guillaume de Gevigney in pillaging the repository. Baron De Joursanvault believed the twelve documents that mentioned Blanche had special historical significance. Thus, in his own inventory he included the marginal notation hist[oire] de france beside his analysis of each of the acts to indicate their special importance. Four acts, dated 6 January 1323, are receipts issued by Pierre la Vache, castellan of Melun and royal sergeant-at-arms, long known to have been one of the guardians of Lady Blanche of Burgundy at Chteau- Gaillard in 1322.
