Historical background


Languedoc - BISHOPRIC TANKS - ADALBERT OF Peyre

(1297-1306)

Viviers, on the right bank of the Rhone, was located below the Roman era on the Alba website then the city then fled on the rock. Viviers is bishopric since the fourth century. Attached to the Holy Roman Empire, bishops receive the right to monetize the Emperor Conrad in 1147. Monetary lease is confirmed by Frederick I Barbarossa (1152-1190) in 1177, followed by Frederick II of Hohenstaufen (1197-1250) in 1214. The most dangerous neighbor to the bishops, is the Count of Toulouse. After the Treaty of Paris in 1229, the bishops eschewed Languedoc guardianship. Mint with a bishop name starts with Guillaume de Falguières (1294-1297) and continues with the Voulte Aimar (1326-1365) at the time of the Great Plague in 1348.
