There was a Council of Anse in 1025, but it seems to be a religious turf war.
The council of 1025 was held for the purpose of settling a conflict between
the monks of Cluny and the Bishop of Mācon, who complained that, though
their monastery was situated in his diocese, the monks had obtained
ordination from the Archbishop of Vienne. St. Odilon of Cluny was present
and exhibited a papal privilege exempting his monastery from the episcopal
jurisdiction of Mācon. But the fathers of the council caused to be read the
ancient canons ordaining that in every country the abbots and monks should
be subject to their own bishop, and declared null a privilege contrary to
the canons. The Archbishop of Vienne was required to apologize to the
Bishop of Mācon.
Asside from geneologies, and brief mentions in the histories of Savoy, this
was about all I could find on him:
Humbert I Whitehands was made Count of Savoy (1038) in the French-speaking
Kingdom of Burgundy for helping Emperor Conrad II conquer that kingdom.
Oh, there were a couple mentions in relation to a certain oath...
