Languedoc - COUNTY Melgueil - BISHOPS MAGUELONNE - ANONYMOUS
(XI - XII centuries)
City Maguelonne, founded by the Visigoths, was ruined by the Franks in 737. The bishops took refuge on the site Subtantion which has now disappeared. Maguelonne was raised by Bishop Arnaud (1030-1060). In 1172 the County Melgueil passed to the house of Toulouse. The privilege of manufacture belonged to the Counts of Melgueil which ruined, ceded their rights to Pope Innocent III who inféoda to Bishop William III Autignac (1204-1216) April 14, 1215. Therefore County Melgueil was in the hands of the bishops of Maguelonne. These bishops were faced with the rise of the house of Aragon, who had just come into possession of Montpellier. From 1293, Philip IV installed a workshop Sommières which was transferred to Montpellier in 1356. The bishopric was suppressed in 1536 and he settled in Montpellier.
