Castle of Montmaur, French Heritage monument to Montmaur
The baronnie of Montmaur was the fourth of the Dauphine one, and its lords had the hereditary title of large huntsmen of the Dolphin.
Montauban, owners of the baronnie of this name, were the first lords.
This first race, following Guy Allard, died out in 1310, in the person of Raymond; Guillaume Artaud, wire of Mabille de Montauban, sister of the last lord and Guillaume Artaud, lord of Aix and Bellegarde, succeeded to him by taking the name and arm with Montauban. This account must obviously contain a considerable error: since 1212, Guillaume, baron de Montmaur, carries in the public acts the name of Arthaudi of Assembles-Albano, it is the same of his successors Isoard (1239), Raymond (1247) and Reynaud (1287).
This second race died out in 1434, in the person of Raymond Artaud de Montauban; his/her Marguerite sister married Sochon de Flotte, lord of the Rock, which began the third, that of Fleet-Montauban.
To the XVII E century, the baronnie of Montmaur was acquired by of Agout.
Montauban lent homage to the Dolphin in 1269, for this baronnie.
The castle of Montmaur is one of the monuments most remarkable and best preserved department of Hautes-Alpes.
Montauban carried azure to the three castles to three turns of gold, built of sand.
