Description Natural children epitomize the transgression of Christian marriage, and thus are struck with legal inability as defined by customary law, the Church, and jurisprudence from the 11th century onwards. This aimed at preserving the successional rights of legitimate children. Those born outside lawful marriage found themselves discriminated inside a family group. Through the Bourbon ducal family (14th-16th centuries), the aim is to understand what place was given to natural children inside a family group of the nobility. Even though their successional exclusion did not transpose on a social point of view, they remained and were deliberately kept on the fringe of their family groups and were fated to serve the interests of the lineage.
Symboles de la transgression du mariage chrétien, les enfants naturels sont frappés d’incapacités juridiques, définies par le droit coutumier, l’Église et la jurisprudence à partir du XIe siècle. L’objectif est de préserver les intérêts successoraux des enfants légitimes. Ceux qui naissent hors mariage se trouvent distingués au sein de la parenté. À travers la famille ducale de Bourbon (XIVe-XVIe siècle), l’objectif est de comprendre la place donnée aux enfants naturels nobles au sein d’un groupe de parenté. Si leur exclusion successorale n’entraîne pas une exclusion sociale, ils restent volontairement positionnés à la marge de la parenté et destinés à servir les intérêts du lignage.
