List of Barons of Vitré

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

ed from 1008 to the French Revolution. In seven centuries, the Barony of Vitré was ruled by four great families: the House of Vitré (1008-1254), the second House of Laval (1254-1547), the House of Montfort-Laval (1547-1605) and the House of La Trémoille-Laval (1605-1792). The family of Goranton-Hervé, who ruled Vitré a short time during Robert II's reign, also ruled the barony.
