Coat of arms of the county of Nevers

This page lists the Counts of Nevers, who were the rulers of the County of Nevers.


The history of the County of Nevers is closely connected to the Duchy of Burgundy, from which it was separated in the 11th century. The counts also held the County of Auxerre in the 11th and 12th centuries, and the county was held by the Count of Flanders and then the Duke of Burgundy again in the 14th century. In 1539 it was directly annexed to France and became a duchy in the peerage of France, where for a time it was held by the Gonzaga family.
