Historical background


DAUPHINÉ - ARCHDIOCESE VIENNA - Sobon

(927-949)

Vienna was the ancient capital of Savoyards. Christianized early, she became bishop and archbishop in the fourth century. In the partition of Verdun in 843, it belonged to Lothar and was part of the great Lorraine. Higgs made it the capital of the kingdom of Provence in 879. It lost its importance after the death of Conrad the Pacific when it was attributed to Louis the Blind (890-929), which includes the kingdoms of Burgundy and Provence before giving birth in the next century the kingdom of Arles. From 926, Charles Constantine, bastard of Louis the Blind governs the county Viennese until 962. Sobon was Archbishop of Vienna 927-949. He was the brother of Engelbert, who had married his second wife Thiberge, sister of Hugh of Arles, Garnier de Troyes wife and mother of Hugh, Count of Troyes.
