He was installed as FOULQUES I "le Roux" Comte d'Anjou in 929 by Raoul King of France.

His lay abbacies are noted in the charter dated to [929/30] under which "Fulco Andecavorum comes abbas quoque Sancti Albini Sanctique Lizinii necnon et uxor mea Roscilla et filii mei Widdo ac Fulco" donated property to Saint-Aubin d'Angers for the souls of "Ingelgerio genitore meo atque Ingelgerio filio meo necnon…Warnerio socro meo et uxore sua Tescenda"[46].

m (before 5 Jul 905) ROSCILLE [de Loches], daughter of GARNIER Seigneur de Loches, Villentrasti et Haia & his wife Tescenda --- ([870]-).

Comte Foulques I & his wife had five children:

a) INGELGER d'Anjou (-killed in battle [927]), killed fighting the Normans[52].

b) GUY d'Anjou (-[970]). His father offered him as a hostage to the Normans in return for the release of Charles III "le Simple" King of the Franks in 922.

According to Europäische Stammtafeln[60], Adela was the possible daughter of Foulques I Comte d'Anjou. The primary source which confirms her origin has not yet been identified.

It is possible that it is speculative, based on one of her sons being named Foulques.
