Historical background


DOMBES - PRINCIPALITY OF DOMBES - LOUIS II DE MONTPENSIER

(1560-1582)

On the death of Pierre de Bourbon in 1503, his daughter Suzanne (1491-1521) succeeded him as lord of Trévoux. She married Charles III Duke of Bourbon-Montpensier (1489-1527), son of Gilbert, Count of Montpensier. On the death of Anne de Beaujeu, daughter of Louis XI and wife of Pierre de Bourbon, in 1522, Louise de Savoie, mother of François I, claimed the Dombes heritage. Charles de Bourbon, constable of France, betrayed King François I to join Charles V and died besieging Rome in 1527. The seigneury of Dombes was given to Louise de Savoie and attached to the kingdom after Louise's death in 1531. In 1560, François II restores it to Louis II de Bourbon-Montpensier, son of Louise de Montpensier, (+1561) sister of Charles the constable of Bourbon, and erects the seigniory of Trévoux into a principality. The Bourbon-Montpensiers descend from Robert de Clermont, son of Saint-Louis. The Bourbon-Montpensier family will reign over the Dombes until 1693.
