Confusing sentences[edit]

I'm not entirely sure what this is supposed to mean (emphasis added on the confusing bits):

Their plot failing, Anscar accompanied Guy back to Italy to seek that vacant throne and in gratefulness created the March of Ivrea to bestow on his Burgundian faithful. Anscar's descendants held the march until 1030.

Grammatically, since the subject of that second sentence is Anscar, it seems like Anscar is the one who created the March of Ivrea for "his Burgundian faithful." But Since Guy became the king of Italy (a point that's elided here), it would make more sense if Guy created the March of Ivrea for Anscar, who I assume is the person meant by "his Burgundian faithful." This is supported by the fact that Anscar and his family were the Marquesses of Ivrea -- usually you are created a Marquess by your feudal overlord, the king, yes? --Jfruh (talk) 15:51, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

I've separated this out into sections, to make it a bit more readable, though I'm not completely convinced by this. Were these houses really referred to as Anscarids? It isn't a term I've come across. Swanny18 (talk) 17:43, 23 October 2009 (UTC)


It makes no sense since the family only rule Castile, Leon and Galicia.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 03:41, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

It's House of Burgundy (Spain) on Spanish wikipedia. So please can people stop linking this article to House of Burgundy-Spain and calling it that. It was the Castilian/Spanish House of Burgundy.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 01:15, 4 June 2011 (UTC)
