"Odonis comitis filii Theobaldi comitis" subscribed the charter dated 950 under which Ragnfred Bishop of Chartres donated property to Chartres Saint-Père[48].  Rodulfus Glaber names "Odo…filius Tetbaldi Carnotensis cognomento fallacis", recording that he was "chief among the rebels…who rebelled against the king [Robert I] from positions that should have made them humble"[49].  Rodulfus Glauber names "Odonem" son of "Tetbaldus [et] sororem [Heribertum Trecorum comitem]"[50].  Ademar names "Odonis Campanensis" as brother of "Emma", mother of Guillaume Duke of Aquitaine[51].  Odalric Archbishop of Reims granted him Coucy after recovering it from Eudes's father[52].  He succeeded his father as EUDES I Comte de Blois, de Chartres, de Châteaudun, de Tours, de Beauvais et de Dreux.  "Odo comes…" signed a charter dated Feb 977 of Chartres Saint-Père[53].  "Odoni comitis…" signed a charter dated Oct 977 relating to Bourgeuil[54].

A letter of Gerbert dated 983 records that "Heriberti Trecassini et Oddonis comitis filii Tedbaldi" were enemies of "Adelbero Remonis archiepiscopus"[57], while a letter dated to mid-985 records that "Ottonem, Heribertum" made peace with the archbishop[58].  A letter of Gerbert dated to [late 986/early 987] records that "O et Heribertus comites" were part of the council of Emma Queen of France[59].  It is assumed that "Oddonis/Ottonem/O" all refer to the same person.  Rodolfus Glaber records his place of burial when stating that his son Eudes II was buried next to his father[60].  m ([978/80]) as her first husband, BERTHE of Burgundy, daughter of CONRAD I “le Pacifique” King of Burgundy [Welf] & his second wife Mathilde de France [Carolingian] ([964/965]-16 Jan after 1010).  The Liber Modernorum Regum Francorum names "Berta filia Conradi regis Burgundiæ" wife of "Odone comite Carnotensium"[61].  Rodulfus Glauber names "Odo natus ex filia Chuonradi regis Austrasiorum, Berta nomine"[62].  The date of her marriage is suggested by the charter dated 3 May 983 under which "Odo comes" restored "villam…Culturas" to the abbey of Marmoutier, signed by "Berte comitisse uxoris eius, majoris filii eius Teutboldi, minoris filii eius Odonis adhuc in cunabulo quiescentis"[63].

A charter dated 996 records the confirmation by "comitissæ Berthæ" of the donation by "Odo comes" of property for the construction of the abbey of Bourgeuil, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Teobaldi…atque Odonis"[65].  She married secondly ([late 996/early 997], divorced [1003/05]) as his second wife, Robert II King of France.  Richer records that King Robert married "Berta Odonis uxor"[66].  "Bertæ reginæ, Odonis comitis filii eius…" subscribed the charter dated 1004 under which "Gislebertus prepositus" recorded a donation[67].  "Odonis comitis, Ermengardis uxoris eius, Bertæ reginæ…" subscribed the charter dated after 1005 under which "comitem Odonem" donated property "in comitatu Dunensi…Boscus Medius" to "Sancti Petri"[68].

a) [ROBERT de Blois (-[989/95]). "Odonis comitis, Rotberti filii eius, Tetbaldi filius eius, Odonis alterius filius, Hugonis vicecomitis Castridunensis, Raherii de Montigniaco" subscribed the charter dated 989 under which "Robert Vicomte de Blois" donated property to the abbey of Evron[70]. Lex suggests that this document was a 12th century falsification and that that this supposed eldest son Robert did not exist[71]. This position is supported by the charter dated 3 May 983 under which "Odo comes" restored "villam…Culturas" to the abbey of Marmoutier, signed by "Berte comitisse uxoris eius, majoris filii eius Teutboldi, minoris filii eius Odonis adhuc in cunabulo quiescentis"[72].]

He succeeded his father in 995 as THIBAUT II Comte de Blois. A charter dated 996 records the confirmation by "comitissæ Berthæ" of the donation by "Odo comes" of property for the construction of the abbey of Bourgeuil, with the consent of "filiorum suorum Teobaldi…atque Odonis"[75]. He resigned in favour of his younger brother and became a priest.

d) AGNES de Blois . "La reine Berthe et ses enfants Thibaud, Eudes et Agnès" confirmed a donation to Bourgeuil by Emma Ctss de Poitiers dated Sep 1001[78].

[A fragmentary chronicle of the dukes of Aquitaine records that "Wido…comes de Thoarcio, vicecomitis Ebles filius" married "Agnete" who brought him "terram…de Salmuriaco" from "Odone patre comite Turonensi"[80]. It should be noted that the genealogy of the vicomtes de Thouars which is included in this document cannot be fitted into the family which has been reconstructed from other primary sources and is shown in the document AQUITAINE NOBILITY. Its accuracy is therefore open to doubt. m GUY Vicomte de Thouars, son of EBLES Vicomte de Thouars & his wife Altrude de Limoges.]

e) THIERRY de Blois (-[996/Sep 1101], bur Chartres Saint-Père). A charter dated to before 1024 records that "comes Tedbaldus" was buried "in capitulo Sancti Petri" at the feet of "fratris sui Teoderici"[81].

f) LANDRY de Blois (-after 27 Sep 1007). A charter of Robert II King of France dated 1007 confirmed the properties of "ecclesia B. Mariæ Bellimontis…sita a castro Patris Martini" near Tours including the donation of "Liuziam" [Luzé] with the consent of "Odonis comitis et fratris sui Landrici"[82].
