  General Notes:

HELIE de Bourgogne ([1080]-28 Feb 1141). She is named by Orderic Vitalis, who also records her parentage, her two marriages and names her eldest son by each marriage. The contract of marriage between "Bertrandus Raimundi filius" and "Electæ" is dated Jun 1095. A bull of Pope Pascal II dated 4 Feb 1107 names "Bertrannus comes" and comments that he had been "propter uxorem abiectam et multiplicata adulteria iamdiu excommunicationi subiectus". The document gives no more details of these charges, which from the context appear to have been brought some time before the date of the bull, whose main purpose was a threat of further excommunication against Bertrand for having attacked the monastery of Saint-Gilles. She accompanied her husband to Palestine. Guillaume of Jumièges records that "Willelmum Talavatium" married "Ala...quæ fuerat antea uxor ducis Burgundiæ" [incorrect], and had "duos filios et totidem filias". "Guido comes Pontivi" donated property to Cîteaux with the consent of "pater eius Willelmus comes…et mater eius Hela" by charter dated 18 Dec 1139.

Regent for his father in Toulouse from Oct 1096, when the latter left for Palestine. He succeeded his father in 1105 as BERTRAND Comte de Toulouse. He conquered Tripoli 12 Jun 1109, declaring himself BERTRAND Count of Tripoli.
