On the 7th of August 1266, Count Eudes of Nevers died on crusade in Acre. In the days leading up to his death and in the months that followed, his closest knights and companions created an account-inventory of his goods and assets. The assembled text, comprised of five long parchment rolls written in Old French, lists both his material goods, the debts he incurred while on crusade, and the a list of the donations he made after his death. The text was originally edited by A. M. Chazaud in 1871. (“Inventaire et comptes de la succession d’Eudes, Comte de Nevers (Acre 1266),” Memoires de la Société des Antiquaires de France 32 (1871). This new transcription offers an updated version of the Account-Inventory based on the digital facsimile.
