  General Notes:

GUILLAUME de Bourgogne, son of RENAUD I Comte de Bourgogne & his [first] wife Adelais de Normandie ([1024]-12 Nov 1087, bur Besançon). Guillaume of Jumièges names "Adeliz" as the first daughter of "dux Richardus" and his wife "Goiffredum Britannorum comitem...sororem...Iudith", adding that she married "Rainaldo Burgundionum comiti" by whom she had "Willelmum et Widonem" (the marriage is recorded in a later passage). His parentage also is given by Orderic Vitalis. He succeeded his father in 1057 as GUILLAUME I "le Grand" Comte de Bourgogne. For about ten years he fought his brother Guy ex-Comte de Brionne who attempted to dispossess him. He was one of the princes called upon by Pope Gregory VII in 1074 to help defend St Peter's. He succeeded in 1078 as Comte de Mâcon, when his cousin Guy [II] Comte de Mâcon entered holy orders.

m ([1049/57]) ETIENNETTE, daughter of --- ([1035]-after 19 Oct 1088). Szabolcs de Vajay demonstrates that his earlier hypothesis concerning a Lotharingian origin of Etiennette is incorrect. According to Père Anselme, she was the daughter of Berenguer Ramón I "el Curvo" Conde de Barcelona, but there appears to be no contemporary documentation on which this is based. Settipani suggests that Etiennette may have been the daughter of Bernard [II]Comte de Bigorre & his first wife Clémence, based solely on onomastics, but the possible motivation for a marriage between these two families has not been identified.

Comte Guillaume I & his wife had [thirteen] children: Eudes, Renaud, Guillaume, Ermentrude, Guy, Étienne, Sybille, Raymond, Hugues, Gisèle, Clémence, Étiennette and [Berthe].
