Historical background

Languedoc - COUNTY OF TOULOUSE - PONS Coinage in sponsorship of Henry I of France


Duplessy confirms the idea that Pons is a parent of Henry I who was the second son of Robert II the Pious and Constance of Provence. He was associated with the throne after the death of his brother Hugh. Henry had to fight against his brother Robert who he eventually vassal of Burgundy in 1032. Henry I died in 1060, leaving a minor son, Philip I, under the regency of Anne of Kiev. We do not know the bond between Henry I. Pons.
