  General Notes:

HELIE ([1016]-Semur-en-Brionnais, Saône-et-Loire 22 Apr after 1055). "Notes historiques sur le prieuré de Marcigny", included in the cartulary of Marcigny-sur-Loire, name (in order) "sancti Hugonis abbatis Cluniacensis et Gaufredi Sinemurensis, Andræ levitæ, Joceranni et Dalmatii, et sororum eorundem…Materdis, Adalaidæ et Cecilæ atque Evellæ" as children of "Dalmatius". Her parentage is confirmed by the Vita S Hugonis, which records that "Dux Burgundie, gener eius" killed the father of St Hugues (abbot of Cluny) by his own hand. The date of the marriage is deduced from the charter, dated to [1034], which is subscribed by "Roberti ducis et uxoris sue", under which "Gibuinus" confirmed a donation to Saint-Etienne de Dijon. "Robertus dux Burgundionum" confirmed the possessions of Cluny by charter dated [1040] subscribed by "Ilie uxoris eius". "Robertus Burgundie dux" renounced rights "in villa...Gilliacus..." in favour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés by charter dated 22 Sep 1040, subscribed by "...Elie conjugis eius...". "Robertus…dux et rector inferioris Burgundiæ" donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated 1 Mar 1043 which names "Helie uxoris mee…". "Robertus dux Burgundiorum cum uxore mea Helia" donated"terram...Villare pago Belnensi" to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, with the consent of "filiorum nostrorum Hugonis et Henrici", by charter dated to [1043/44]. "Robertus dux et uxor sua Hylia" donated money to the church of Saint-Etienne de Dijon by undated charter. She was repudiated, presumably on grounds of consanguinity, before [1050] when Jean Abbot of Fécamp wrote to Pope Leo IX recording that "Tedbaldo comite et Burgundionum…duce R" had "abdicatis legitimi thori connumbiis" and had "in inhonestis et consanguinitate fœdatis thalamis". She became a nun as PETRONILLE after her repudiation. The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 22 Apr of "Helya uxor Rotberti ducis".

m ([1033], repudiated [1048]) as his first wife, ROBERT I Duke of Burgundy, son of ROBERT II "le Pieux" King of France & his third wife Constance d'Arles ([1007]-church of Fleury-sur-Ouche, Côte d'Or 18 Mar 1076, bur Saint-Seine-l'Abbaye, Côte d'Or). 1

Hélie married Robert de France Duc de Bourgogne, son of Robert II de France Roi de France and Constance de Provence, about 1033.1 (Robert de France Duc de Bourgogne was born about 1011-1012, died 8 or 18 Mar 1076 in Église Saint Jean-Baptiste, Fleurey-sur-Ouche, Côte-d'Or, Bourgogne, 21410, FR and was buried in Abbaye de Saint-Seine, Saint-Seine-l'Abbaye, Côte-d'Or, Bourgogne, 21440, FR.)
