Hugh of Chalon, Bishop of Liège, 1296-1301

Arms of the Chalon family.

Hugo III of Chalon (died 1312) was a son of John I of Chalon and his third wife Laura of Commercy. From 1295 to 1301 he was prince-bishop of Liège. In 1300 he defended himself before the Roman curia against charges that he had defrauded his brother John I of Chalon-Auxerre and that he had sold off ecclesiastical possessions. Pope Boniface VIII removed him from his bishopric at Liège and instead made him bishop of Besançon.
