The Neuchâtel-Vaumarcus Branch

I found a very nice print of the descendents of the House of Neuchâtel done by Jean Grellaz in 1889. It chronicles the dynasties of Neuchâtel, Fribourg, Bade-Hochberg & Orleans-Longueville as well as the illegitimate branches of Vaumarcus and Arberg des Pontins.

The lordship of Vaumarcus by the house of Neuchâtel started with Girard, the bastard son of the Jean-le-Bel (John the Handsome) in 1376. The lordship of Vaumarcus passed to the de Büren family in 1669 by virtue of the marriage between David de Büren and Marguerite de Bonstetten and ended with Albert de Büren in 1831.
