  General Notes:

GUGLIELMO di Monferrato, son of RANIERI III Marchese di Monferrato & his wife Gisèle de Bourgogne-Comté (1110-1191). "Marchio Ragnerius filius quondam Willielmi et Gisla jugalis filia quondam Vialii, sive Willielmus filius iam dicti Ragnerii nec non et Julitta jugalis filia Lupaldi, atque Ardezonus filius quondam item Ardezonii" donated property to the monastery of Locedio by charter dated 28 Mar 1133 "in castro…Monsbellus". His parentage is suggested by William of Tyre who names him "Wilelmus marchio de Monteferrato eiusdem domini imperatoris sororius" when recording his presence with Konrad III King of Germany in Palestine in 1148, and "avunculus" of Louis VII King of France when referring to the marriage of his son Guglielmo in 1176. He succeeded his father in [1137] as GUGLIELMO V "il Vecchio" Marchese di Monferrato. Leader of the Ghibellin party in Italy. William of Tyre names him "Wilelmus marchio de Monteferrato eiusdem domini imperatoris sororius" when recording his presence with Konrad III King of Germany in Palestine in 1148, and "avunculus" of Louis VII King of France when referring to the marriage of his son Guglielmo in 1176. "Guilelmus marchio filius quondam Rainerii…marchionis et Julita jugalis filia quondam marchionis Leopoldi de Austria" donated property to the monastery of Grassano by charter dated [15/16] Mar 1156. He quarrelled with Emperor Friedrich I "Barbarossa" King of Germany and lent support to the Italian policy of Emperor Manuel I. "Dominus Wilielmus Montisferrati marchio…et Bonefacius eius filius" renounced their rights in property in Cinaglio in favour of the church of Ca sale by charter dated 3 Sep 1184. He arrived in Palestine in 1185 and was given a small fief in Galilee. Saladin captured him and threatened to kill him unless his son Corrado surrendered Tyre but spared his life when his son refused. He was released and allowed to return to his son at Tyre in Jul 1188.

m (before 28 Mar 1133) JUDITH of Austria, daughter of LEOPOLD III "der Heilige" Markgraf of Austria [Babenberg] & his second wife Agnes of Germany [Staufen] (-after 1178). The wife of Marchese Guglielmo is recorded by William of Tyre as sister of Konrad III King of Germany. The Continuatio Claustroneoburgensis names "Iuta" as fifth daughter of "Liupoldus marchio Austrie" and "Agnetem imperatoris Heinrici IV filiam", specifying that she married "marchio de monte Phetran Regengerus", although this appears chronologically impossible and presumably refers to Marchese Guglielmo. The Cronica Alberti de Bezanis refers to the wife of "Gulielmus marchio Montisferati" as "sororem domini Conradi regis Romanorum et domini Frederici ducis Suevorum". "Marchio Ragnerius filius quondam Willielmi et Gisla jugalis filia quondam Vialii, sive Willielmus filius iam dicti Ragnerii nec non et Julitta jugalis filia Lupaldi, atque Ardezonus filius quondam item Ardezonii" donated property to the monastery of Locedio by charter dated 28 Mar 1133 "in castro…Monsbellus". "Guilelmus marchio filius quondam Rainerii…marchionis et Julita jugalis filia quondam marchionis Leopoldi de Austria" donated property to the monastery of Grassano by charter dated [15/16] Mar 1156.

Marchese Guglielmo & his wife had [nine] children: Guglielmo, [Beatrice], Corrado, Bonifazio, Federigo, Ranieri, Agnese, Alasia and a daughter. 1


Guglielmo married Judith von Babenberg, daughter of Leopold III von Babenberg Markgraf von Österreich and Agnes, before 28 Mar 1133.1 (Judith von Babenberg died after 1178 1.)
