Rotbold III (also Rothbold, Rotbald, Rodbald, Roubaud, or Rotbaud) (died 1014 or 1015) was the Count and Margrave of Provence from 1008 to his death. He was the only son of Rotbold II and Emilde, daughter of Stephen, Viscount of Gévaudan. He inherited all his father's titles on his death in 1008. He is an obscure person, difficult to differentiate from his father.

Family[edit]

Rotbald married Ermengard.[1] By her he left two sons and a daughter:

His widow Ermengard married Rudolf III of Burgundy c. 1016 and she died c. 28 Aug. 1057.[1]
