Dukes of Bourbon

From 1196-1262 House of Bourbon-Dampierre, 1262-1310 House of Burgundy, 1310-1327 House of Clermont, 1327-1527 House of Bourbon, 1527-1575 in dynastic union with France (1527-1575 House of Valois), 1661-1830 House of Bourbon-Conde.

Administration of the Bourbonnais

A seigneurie since the 9th century, in 1327, Bourbon was elevated to the rank of Duchy. The Duchy of Bourbon, first administered by the Dukes of Bourbon, fell to the crown of France in 1531. Since 1531, the administration of the Duchy lay in the hand of the provincial bureaucracy, not in the hand of dukes. Bourbon was transformed into the Gouvernement de Bourbonnais (1531-1790), seat at Moulins. The Generalite de Moulins was established in 1587.
In 1790 the territory of the Bourbonnais was partitioned among the Departements 18 Cher and 03 Allier.

Alternative Spelling

Bourbonnois, in French sources of the 18th century
