Counts of Toulouse

The county of Toulouse was created 778 by Charlemagne and became hereditary in the house of Rourgue in the middle of the 9th century. In their hands Toulouse became one of the most important principalities in southern France and it had supremacy over the counties of Quercy, Albi, Carcassonne, Nimes, Béziers and Foix. They also inherited a part of Provence in the 11th century. Since the end of 9th century Toulouse had de facto been completely independent from France and it was only with the Albigensian crusade 1209-29 that French central power was restored. The house of Rouergue's fiefs were confiscated 1212 and given to Simon de Montfort. The house of Rourgue was reinstated in Toulouse with the peace in Paris 1229 but they did not retain the supremacy over the neighboring counties. The county of Toulouse was finally dissolved when the last count died without heirs and it was united with the royal domain 1271.
