Historical background


DAUPHINÉ - BISHOPRIC VALENCIA - ANONYMOUS

(End XI - XIII century)

Text 1145 indicates that the cities of Valence and Die struck coins. In 1178, Frederick I Barbarossa (1152-1190) confirms the monetary privilege Valencia Chaponnay Eudes (1156-1186). This privilege is reconfirmed under Bishop William of Savoy (1227-1239), by Frederick II of Hohenstaufen (1197-1250). The bishoprics of Valence and Die were united in 1276 by decision of Pope Gregory X (1271-1276). The bishops began to sign their currencies from Jean Geneva (1283-1298).
