  General Notes:

HENRI de Bourgogne "le Damoiseau" ([1035]-27 Jan [1070/74]). "Robertus…dux et rector inferioris Burgundiæ" donated property to Saint-Bénigne-de-Dijon by charter dated 1 Mar 1043 which names "Helie uxoris mee…seu filiorum nostrorum Hugonis…atque Heinrici". He is named as first born son of Duke Robert by Orderic Vitalis, who specifies that Henri died in his father's lifetime leaving three sons whom he names. "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 duo filii mei Hugo et Henricus" renounced rights to revenue from land "in Gilliaco" in favour of Saint-Germain-des-Prés by charter dated 2 Feb 1053. "Henricus Roberti ducis filius Burgundie" granted rights in the forest of Saint-Julien to the church of Saint-Etienne de Dijon by undated charter.

m --- (-6 Jul 1074 or after, bur Besançon, Saint-Etienne). The wife of Henri de Bourgogne has not been identified with certainty. Abbé Maurice Chaume suggested that she was a relative of Ramón Borell I Conde de Barcelona, pointing out the use of the name "Borel" by her son and grandson Dukes Eudes I and Hugues II. Szabolcs de Vajay proposed more specifically that she was --- de Barcelona, daughter of Berenguer Ramón I "el Curvo" Conde de Barcelona & his third wife Guisle de Ampurias, married while her husband and his father were in Barcelona on crusade in Spain. There appears to be nothing to support the suggestion that her first name was Sibylla. Jean Richard suggested that the wife of Henri de Bourgogne was possibly named Clémence, a name used by her descendants, and that she may have originated from Poitiers. There does not appear to be any direct proof to support any of these theories.

Henri de Bourgogne & his wife had seven children: Hugues, Eudes, Robert, Beatrix, Helie, Renaud and Henri. 1
