Margraviate and County of Provence

Provence with the margraviate, the county of Forcalquier and the county in the 12th century

The two sons of Bosos II divided their father's territory. The older, Redbald II , took over the region around Avignon and founded the margraviate of Provence. The younger, William I , took the land around Arles and founded the county of Provence. From this the county Forcalquier was separated in the 11th century , which was ruled by descendants of Count Gottfried I. Due to the marriage of the last heiress of Forcalquier to Count Alfonso II , this county was reunited with the county of Provence at the end of the 12th century.

Both the margravate and the county of Provence were united with France after the death of their last owners, although they were fiefdoms of the Holy Roman Empire . Parts of the margraviate (Venaissin, Avignon) were handed over to the Pope.
