Historical background


Picardy - Soissons - ANONYMOUS

(Eleventh century)

Eudes I of Blois, son of Theobald I the Cheat (d. 975), received the Saint-Médard de Soissons. He died on March 12 996 leaving a widow who married a second King Robert II. It minted coins in his name at Soissons, probably at the same time or shortly before those bearing the name of the abbeys of Saint-Médard and Saint Sebastian, the written letters for the proposition that they are the work of a single writer. Soissons was a hereditary fief of the house of Vermandois. In the twelfth century, the county went into the house of Nesle.
