    Rudolph I, Roi de Bourgogne, Comte d'Auderre
    First king of Juran (Upper) Burgundy (888912).

    The son of Konrad (d. 876), count of Auxerre of the powerful German Welf (Guelf) family, Rudolf succeeded to the duchy of Burgundy in 885 or 886. In January 888 he was crowned king at the abbey of St. Maurice d'Agaune and quickly extended his rule over much of Lorraine and Alsace. Attacked by Arnulf of Germany, Rudolf was unable to hold his new territory, and in late 888 he relinquished his claims in exchange for Arnulf's recognition of the kingdom of Burgundy.
