Historical background


PÉRIGORD - COUNTY PÉRIGORD - ANONYMOUS

(XII-XIII centuries)

The county of Périgord was awarded in 1006 to Helie II, Count of La Marche, by William V the Great (990-1029) to settle the estate of Adalbert. His other son, Bernard, received the county of Marche. Perigord mint could begin at that time. The workshop was it located in Perigueux, The Sale-to-Comte or the castle of Puy-Saint-Front, a century and a half later, as indicated by A. Dieudonné (see MNF., P.225) ? Count the mint does not begin until Helie VI (1245-1251) with funds on behalf of the count. Previously, we find the reigns of V Helie de Talleyrand (1166-1205), Archambaud I (1205-1212) and Archambaud II (1212-1245).
