High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Humbert I (c. 980-1047/1048) was the first Count of Savoy from 1032, when the County of Vienne, which had been sold to the Archdiocese of Vienne, was divided between the County of Albon and the Maurienne. Humbert came of noble stock, possibly from Saxony, Italy, Burgundy or Provence. He is also called Humbert the White-Handed reportedly to signify his generosity. However, this posthumously applied title may derive from a textual mistranslation of an early Latin record which actually refers to the walls of his castle, not his hands, as white. During the wars between Rudolph III of Burgundy and the Emperor Henry II, Humbert supported the latter with provisions and soldiers because he was related to the imperial family by marriage. Thus, in 1003, the emperor installed him as the Count of Aosta, a mountainous region then a part of Burgundy but today within Italy, and granted him the northern Viennois as a reward. Humbert in turn protected the right flank of Henry's army during his subsequent invasion of Italy in 1040.
