  General Notes:

RENAUD de Mâcon (-22 Jan 1148 or 20 Jan 1149). The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Elizabeth sororem comitis Raynaldi de Burgundia" as wife of "Hugo comes Campanie", but the primary source which confirms their parentage has not yet been identified. He succeeded his father in 1102 as Comte de Mâcon, under the guardianship of his uncle Guy, who was then Archbishop of Vienne. He succeeded his second cousin in 1127 as RENAUD III Comte [Palatin] de Bourgogne. He defeated Konrad I Herzog von Zähringen, who claimed Bourgogne-Comté after the death of his nephew Comte Palatin Guillaume II. However, after refusing to swear allegiance to Emperor Lothar for his imperial lands, Renaud was captured and brought before the emperor by Herzog Konrad and these territories were confiscated. He was known as "le franc-comte", the origin of the name of the area later known as Franche-Comté. "Raynaldus Burgundiæ comes" donated property to Besançon cathedral, with the consent of "fratris nostri Guillermi comitis et...collateralis nostræ Agathæ Lotharingiæ ducis filiæ", by charter dated 1148. The necrology of the Priory of Saint-Martin-des-Champs records the death "XVIII Kal Feb" of "Rainaldus comes". The necrology of Macon Saint-Pierre records the death "XVIII Kal Feb" of "comes Raynaldus" and his donation of "unum censualem modium vini in villa Liviniaci".

m ([1130]) AGATHE de Lorraine, daughter of SIMON II Duke of Lorraine & his wife Adélaïde de Hainaut. The Gesta Friderici of Otto of Freising records the wife of Comte Renaud as "Simonis Lotharingiorum ducis filiam". "Raynaldus Burgundiæ comes" donated property to Besançon cathedral, with the consent of "fratris nostri Guillermi comitis et...collateralis nostræ Agathæ Lotharingiæ ducis filiæ", by charter dated 1148. She was first cousin once removed of her husband but no mention of a Papal dispensation for the marriage has so far been identified. "Matheus...Lotharingorum Dux et marchio" donated property to Tart abbey, with the consent of "uxoris mee Berthe...fratris mei Balduini et Agathe sororis mee", by charter dated 1142.

Comte Renaud III & his wife had one child. 1
