Regents of Provence

The name Provence comes from the Roman province Provincia Narbonensis. After having been a part of various Germanic states during the early middle age it became an independent kingdom 855. This kingdom that was also called Lower Burgundy united with Juran kingdom 933 and created the kingdom of Burgundy. In  Provence a county ruled by the Bosonidian dynasty evolved. The county was in the beginning often ruled by several counts at the same time whereupon the senior usually had the title marquis. The title marquis was then inherited by the counts of Toulouse who later got the northern part when Provence was partitioned in 1125. As a part of the kingdom of Burgundy the county of Provence was incorporated in the Holy Roman Empire 1033 but it was later united with France when its last count bequeathed it to the French heir.
