HistoryEdit

Bouligneux first appears as vicus Beliniacum in 885, in a document of Charles III.

On March 28, 944, Hugues, son or Bermund, lord of Bouligneux and Gisèle, signed a document renouncing any claims on Thoissey, in favor of Adémar, Viscount of Lyon.[3]

In 1280, it belonged to Vaucher de Commarin, who sold it to Henri de Villars in 1290.

In 1402, Bouligneux was part of Bresse Savoyarde.

In the 17th century, Bouligneux was a county.
