from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Humbert III. († around 1192) was a lord of Beaujeu from the House of Beaujeu . He was a son of Guichard III. of Beaujeu († 1137) and Lucienne of Rochefort .

Humbert went on an armed pilgrimage to the holy land around 1142 , where he joined the Knights Templar . However, he separated from this order on his return home. With Count Wilhelm II of Chalon he was involved in feuds against the Abbey of Cluny .

He was married to a daughter of Count Amadeus III. of Savoy , with whom he had four sons, including Humbert IV († 1189), all of whom died before him. In Beaujeu he was followed directly by his grandson Guichard IV when he died around 1192.
