Occupation: BET 926 AND 927 Duke of Aquitaine 1
Acfred (died 927) was briefly Count of Auvergne and Duke of Aquitaine betw een 926 and his death, succeeding his brother William II. Acfred was the y oungest son of the count Acfred I of Carcassonne and Adelinda, sister of W illiam I of Aquitaine. He was the last direct heir of his house. His tit le of "duke" only appears in a posthumous charter of 928.
Acfred possessed very little land in Auvergne, most of it having been tran sformed into allods of the leading men long before. Based on surviving cha rters, he did not control the Lyonnais or the Velay, though he held some p roperty in the latter. His other property was scattered throughout the Auv ergne and Gévaudan. He did, however, possess a few comital castles. When A cfred drew up a will in 927, he granted away all that remained of the comi tal fisc to his retainers. He was generous to those of Clermont and Le Puy .
Though Adhemar of Chabannes called Ebalus Manzer his successor, no contemp orary documents evidence Ebalus in Auvergne, though he certainly had a cla im to it. Ebalus, however, was not the only claimant. Between 940 and 94 1, Raymond Pons of Toulouse controlled the region, and, in 955, William I II of Aquitaine invaded and held it.
