Amédée is documented as having granted property with his father to the Bishop of Langres in 1022. He donated to the priory of Bourget by charter in 1030, along with his parents. Again with his father in 1037, he is named in a charter recording the founding of the priory of Bugey. He acquired his nickname Queue because he refused to be received by the Emperor Henry III in Verona because his retinue (queue) was refused entry. He was the founder of the Priory of Le Bourget. He confirmed his father's will at Aosta. He is sometimes confused with his father and they are sometimes considered to be the same person. He was born between 995 and 1000, possibly after.
