The County of Provence

Overview.

After the division of the Carolingian Empire in the 9th century, Provence became a part of the Kingdom of Arles / Burgundy.

In 1112, Countess Douce I of Provence married Raymond-Berengar III, Count of Barcelona, and their descendants, the Catalan Dynasty, ruled Provence until 1246.

In 1246, Beatrice, the daughter and heiress of Count Raymond-Berengar IV Provence and Forcalquier, married Charles I, Count of Anjou.
In 1266, Charles I conquered Kingdom of Sicily with Naples.
In 1282, Charles I lost Sicily and retained Naples.

In 1382, after the death of Joan I, Queen of Naples and Countess of Provence, Naples and Provence were separated. Naples passed to Charles "the Short" and Provence passed to Louis I, Duke of Anjou.

In 1481, Provence and Forcalquier passed to King Louis XI of France.

In 1486, Provence and Forcalquier were definitively incorporated into France.

Provence continued to exist as a separate territorial unit until the introduction of a new territorial division of France in 1789.

>>> --- 1381-1384 ( Charles "the Short" of Durazzo )

Notes:
1. Joan I, Queen of Naples and Countess of Provence, nominated as her heir Charles "the Short", who had married her niece Margaret. When, in 1380, Joan I married Duke Otto of Brunswick, Charles, discontented with this marriage, took part against her. Queen Joan I disinherited Charles and named Duke Louis I of Anjou her successor.
In 1381, Pope Urban VI declared Joan I, Queen of Naples and Countess of Provence, dethroned and gave her possessions to Charles "the Short". Charles made Joan I prisoner at Naples, and, in 1382, put her to death. After a war, in which some cities supported Charles, Duke Louis I of Anjou was able to take Provence from him.

Appendix 1. The Margraviate of Provence

Overview.

In 1125, Alphonse "the Jordan" (+148), Count of Toulouse, signed a treaty whereby his family's traditional claim to the title of "Margrave of Provence" was recognized and the Margraviate of Provence was defined as the region North of the lower Durance and on the right of the Rhône, including the castles of Beaucaire, Valabrègue, and Argence. The region between the Durance, the Rhône, the Alps, and the sea was that of the County and belonged to the House of Barcelona. Avignon, Pont de Sorgues, Caumont and Thor remained undivided.
