Fulk I of Anjou(about 870 – 942), called the Red, was son of viscount Ingelger of Angers and Resinde "Aelinde" D'Amboise, was the first count of Anjou from 898 to 941. He increased the territory of the viscounty of Angers and it became a county around 930. During his reign he was permanently at war with the Normans and the Bretons. He occupied the county of Nantes in 907, but abandoned it to the Bretons in 919. He married Rosalie de Loches. He died around 942 and was succeeded by his son Fulk II.

--------------------

Fulk I (or Fulco) of Anjou, "said Rufus was the first Count of Anjou from 930 to 942, having been first Viscount d'Angers (before 898-930) and Tours (898-909), and Count of Nantes (909-919). It is the family Ingelgeriens and son of Viscount Ingelger and perhaps Aelendis.

It is mentioned for the first time in a charter of April 886, and then as Viscount in another charter dated 29 September 898, signed by Viscount Hardrada Tours. Another 909 charter also says the Vicomte de Tours. In 909, following the death of Alain le Grand, the Viscount of Tours is provided Thibaud the Old and he received the county of Nantes, in charge of fighting against the Normans and Bretons. Nantes is taken by the Normans in 914, and Fulk waives its rights to the county of Nantes in 919. He retained the title of count, but the title was finally recognized in 930, when his overlord Hugh the Great described him as such in one of his charters. He spent most of his life fighting the Vikings.

He married Roscille, daughter of Garnier (Warnerius), Lord of Loches, and Tescende, and had:

Ingelger died before 929 and probably killed in 927 during an engagement against the Vikings.

Gui (Widdoes), canon of St. Martin de Tours, then bishop of Soissons of 937 to 973

Fulk II the Good, Count of Anjou.

Roscille of Anjou, married Alain Barbetorte II, Duke of Brittany. They have a daughter Gerberga Nantes.

He is cited with his son Fulk II the last time in August 941. A charter of 942 mentions a May Fulk Count of Anjou, not as we know it is Fulk Fulk I or II. Given the fact that I Fulk began his career to 886, he probably died shortly after 941.

Fulk le Roux is quoted in "The Chronicle the exploits of the Counts of Anjou," text written from 1100 to 1140 by a monk Angevin, at the request of the Rechin Fulk.

Foulques I "le Reux" (Fulk the Red, Fulco Rufus)

Viscount of Angers, before 898-931×940.

Count of Anjou, 931×940 (or 929)-after 941.

Count of Nantes, 907×9-914×9.

Viscount of Tours, before 905-before 909.

Abbot of Saint-Aubin d'Angers and Saint-Lézin, before 924-after 941.

Foulques (Fulco) first appears as a witness to a charter of count (later king) Eudes, abbot of of Saint Martin de Tours, in April 886 [BEC 30 (1859): 431-3]. He first appears with the title of viscount in a charter of viscount Hardrad of Tours on 29 September 898 [Signum Fulconis vicecomitis, Mabille (1871), xcii-xciii]. In a charter of a certain Archambaldus dated 5 July 905, he appears as viscount of both Angers and Tours [Signum Fulconis Turonorum et Andecavorum vicecomitis, Mabille (1871): xcv], but does not appear to have the latter title for long, for a charter dated 30 October 909 has Tedbaldus signing as viscount of Tours, immediate after "count" Fulco [Signum domni Fulconis Andecavorum comitis; signum Tedbaldi Turonorum vicecomitis, Mabille (1871), xcviii]. As shown by Werner, this use of the comital title by Foulques comes from a brief period when he was count of Nantes, confirmed by the appearance of Foulques as count of Nantes and viscount of Angers in a charter of count (later king) Robert, abbot of Saint-Martin de Tours, dated 31 March 914 [S. Fulconis Namnetens. comitis et Andegavensis vicecomitis, Werner (1958), 287], and by the statement of the Chronicle of Nantes that Foulques ("Fulco Ruffus") had possessed Nantes [Chr. Nantes, 122]. Foulques had apparently obtained the countship of Nantes between 907 (the death of Alain Barbetorte) and 30 October 909, and lost it before 919 [see the detailed discussion in Werner (1958), 265-8, 284-8]. He appears as abbot and viscount in a charter of a certain Fulculf dated 13 August 924 [Signum Fulconi[s] abbatis atque vicecomitis, Cart. S.-Aubin 1: 60], and calls himself count of the Angevins and abbot of Saint-Aubin d'Angers and Saint-Lézin in a charter of 929 [Cart. S.-Aubin 1: 203-4 (see below)]. However, as he was still not signing as count in two charters of Hugues le Grand on 3 May 930 [S. Fulconis vicecomitis, Werner (1958), 284] and 26 March 931 [Signum domni Fulconis, Mabille (1871), ciii], he does not appear to have been recognized as count of Anjou by his Robertian lords until sometime between 931 and 26 December 940, when he appears as count in a charter of Hugues le Grand [Signum Fulconis comitis, Mabille (1871), cv-cviii, erroneously dated 943; see Werner (1958), 286]. Foulques was still living in [13×31] August 941, when he signed a charter along with his son Foulques [Signum domni Fulconis. Signum Fulconis filii ipsius, Mabille (1871), cv]. See Werner (1958), 264-279, and the detailed list of charters mentioning Foulques on pp. 283-6, many of which are printed in full in Mabille (1871).

Date of Birth: Unknown.

Although there is no direct evidence for his date of birth, an estimate of 870 or a little earlier should not be far off, given his long career.

Place of Birth: Unknown.

Date of Death: After 13 August 941.

Both Foulques and his son Foulques witnessed a charter between 13 and 31 August 941, so Foulques was still living on the former date. A charter was witnessed by a count Foulques of Anjou in May 942 [RHF 9: 723], often identified as Foulques II, but, as Werner points out, it is not certain which Foulques was the signer of that charter, and the date of death of Foulques I remains unknown. Nevertheless, given his long career, he probably did not live long after 941.

Place of Death: Unknown.

Father: Ingelger.

The name of Foulques's father is confirmed by a charter of 929 [Cart. S.-Aubin 1: 203-4 (see below)], but nothing else is known about him. For Ingelger as a figure of legend, see the Commentary section.

Mother: see Commentary Section.

Spouse: Roscille, d. after 929, daughter of Garnier (Warnerius) and Tescende.

In the seventh year of king Raoul, Fulco (Foulques), his wife Roscilla, and his sons Widdo (Gui) and Fulco, gave a donation to Saint-Aubin d'Angers for the benefit of his soul and the souls of his father (genitor) Ingelgerius, his son Ingelgerius, his father-in-law Warnerius and the latter's wife Tescenda ["Ego Fulco, Andecavorum comes, abbas quoque Sancti Albini Sanctique Lizinii, necnon et uxor mea Roscilla et filii mei, Widdo ac Fulco, nullius cogentis imperium, sed nostra plenissima voluntate, fatetur nos, pro Dei amore et pro remedium mee anime vel anime Ingelgario, genitor meo, atque Ingelgerio, filio meo, necnon pro anima Warnerio, socro meo et uxore sua, Tescenda, ..." Cart. S.-Aubin, 1: 203-4; see also Cart. Angers, 75].

Children:

[Cart. S.-Aubin, 1: 203-4 (see above)]

MALE Ingelger, d. before 929 (probably 927).

For the death date, see Werner (1958), 271.

MALE Gui, d. 966×985, canon of Saint-Martin de Tours; bishop of Soissons, 937-966×985.

He became bishop of Soissons in 937 in succession to Abbo ["Abbo Suessorum praesul defungitur; et Wido filius Fulco Andegavensis, sancti Martini Turonensis canonicus, eius episcopatu potitur", Flodoard's Annals, s.a. 937, MGH SS 3: 385]. Gui was still living in 966, as a charter of Geoffroy I (son of Foulques II) mentions Geoffroy's avunculus bishop Widdo [Cart. S.-Aubin, 1: 62-3].

MALE Foulques II "le Bon", d. after 958, count of Anjou, after 941-after 958, m. Gerberge.

See Commentary section for supposed additional child.

Commentary

Although the 929 charter mentioned above confirms that the father of Foulques was named Ingelger, contemporary records tell us nothing further about this Ingelger, or about other ancestors of Fulk. A history of the counts of Anjou compiled in the twelfth century, Gesta Consulum Andegavorum, purports to give an account of the ancestors of Foulques [Spicilegium 3: 237-243].

Fulk I (or Fulco) of Anjou, "said Rufus was the first Count of Anjou from 930 to 942, having been first Viscount d'Angers (before 898-930) and Tours (898-909), and Count of Nantes (909-919). It is the family Ingelgeriens and son of Viscount Ingelger and perhaps Aelendis.

It is mentioned for the first time in a charter of April 886, and then as Viscount in another charter dated 29 September 898, signed by Viscount Hardrada Tours. Another 909 charter also says the Vicomte de Tours. In 909, following the death of Alain le Grand, the Viscount of Tours is provided Thibaud the Old and he received the county of Nantes, in charge of fighting against the Normans and Bretons. Nantes is taken by the Normans in 914, and Fulk waives its rights to the county of Nantes in 919. He retained the title of count, but the title was finally recognized in 930, when his overlord Hugh the Great described him as such in one of his charters. He spent most of his life fighting the Vikings.

He married Roscille, daughter of Garnier (Warnerius), Lord of Loches, and Tescende, and had:

Ingelger died before 929 and probably killed in 927 during an engagement against the Vikings.

Gui (Widdoes), canon of St. Martin de Tours, then bishop of Soissons of 937 to 973

Fulk II the Good, Count of Anjou.

Roscille of Anjou, married Alain Barbetorte II, Duke of Brittany. They have a daughter Gerberga Nantes.

He is cited with his son Fulk II the last time in August 941. A charter of 942 mentions a May Fulk Count of Anjou, not as we know it is Fulk Fulk I or II. Given the fact that I Fulk began his career to 886, he probably died shortly after 941.

FOULQUES ([888]-[Aug 941/942], bur Châteauneuf, église Saint-Martin). The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum names "Ingelgerius…filius eius Fulco cognominatus Rufus"[44].

Comte de Nantes 908-919.

Vicomte de Tours et d'Anjou. "Domni Fulconis Andecavorum comitis, Tedbaldi Turonorum vicecomitis" subscribed the charter dated 30 Oct 909 under which the testamentary executors of "domni Gauzuini" donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours[45].

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].

The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records the burial of "Fulco Rufus" at "ecclesia beati Martini iuxta patrem suum"[47]. "Domni Fulconis et filii ipsius…quoque Fulconis" are named as a present in a charter dated Aug 941 which records a lawsuit concerning land claimed by "sacerdos Sancti Martini…Tesmunnus"[48].

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

The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records the marriage of Comte Foulques and "de pago Turonico…Roscillam, Warnerii filiam", specifying that "Warnerius…filius Adalaudi" had three castles "in Turonico…Lochas atque Villentrasti et Haia" which Foulques later acquired[49]. "Falco comes Andecavorum iuvenis" names "uxor mea Roscila et filii mei Guido et Fulco" in a donation of property "pro anima Ingelgerii patris mei et iterum Ingelgerii filii mei et Vuarnerii soceri mei et uxoris suæ Tescendæ" by charter dated 929[50].

Comte Foulques I & his wife had five children:

1. Ingelger d'Anjou (d. 927, killed in battle with the Normans)

2. Guy d'Anjou (d. 970, Bishop of Soissons)

3. Foulques d'Anjou (b. c.920, d. 11 November 958, succeeded as Comte d'Anjou, OUR ANCESTOR)

4. Roscille d'Anjou (d. 943/951, married Alain II le Barbetorte, Duke of Brittany, though this makes no sense as she later married her older brother then?)

5. Adela d'Anjou (married Gauthier, Comte de Valois, d'Amiens et du Vexin)

From the French Wikipedia page on Foulque I d'Anjou:

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foulque_Ier_d%27Anjou

Foulque Ier (ou Fulco) d'Anjou, dit le Roux[1] est le premier comte d'Anjou de 930 à 942, ayant d'abord été vicomte d'Angers (avant 898-930) et de Tours (898-909), et comte de Nantes (909-919). Il est de la famille des Ingelgeriens et fils du vicomte Ingelger et peut-être d'Aelendis.

«Foulques-le-Roux, flis d'Ingelger, occupait en se moment le comté d'Anjou. S'il n'était pas doué de toutes les qualités qui avait valu à son père sa grande fortune, s'il ne réunissait pas comme lui la beauté du corps, la sagesse du conseil, la franchise du langage, la pureté des moeurs, une foie vive et une certaine connaissance des lettres, il possédait du moins les mérites qui constituent l'homme de guerre; il était hardi, entreprenant et brave, ne craignant ni la faim, ni la fatigue. Sa courageuse opposition aux attaques des Normands et des Bretons lui fit pardonner, par une noblesse jalouse de son indépendance et le clergé, son esprit de dissimulation et de ruse, son ambition sans bornes, sa vie licenciense[2] .»

Il est cité pour la première fois dans une charte d'avril 886, puis comme vicomte dans une autre charte du 29 septembre 898, signée par le vicomte Hardrad de Tours. Un autre charte de 909 le dit également vicomte de Tours. En 909, à la suite de la mort d'Alain le Grand, la vicomté de Tours est donné à Thibaud l'Ancien et il reçoit le comté de Nantes, chargé de lutter contre les Normands et les Bretons. Nantes est prise par les Normands en 914, et Foulque renonce à ses droits sur le comté de Nantes en 919. Il conservera cependant le titre de comte, mais ce titre ne fut définitivement reconnu qu'en 930, quand son suzerain Hugues le Grand le qualifia comme tel dans une de ses chartes. Il passa la plus grande partie de sa vie à combattre les vikings.

Il avait épousé Roscille, fille de Garnier (Warnerius), seigneur de Loches, et de Tescende, et avait eu :

1. Ingelger, mort avant 929 et probablement tué en 927 lors d'un engagement contre les vikings.

2. Gui (Widdo), chanoine de Saint-Martin-de-Tours, puis évêque de Soissons de 937 à 973

3. Foulque II le Bon, comte d'Anjou.

4. Roscille d'Anjou, mariée à Alain II Barbetorte, duc de Bretagne. ils auront une fille Gerberge de Nantes.

Il est cité avec son fils Foulque II pour la dernière fois en août 941. Une charte de mai 942 cite un Foulque comte d'Anjou, sans que l'on sache s'il s'agit de Foulque Ier ou de Foulque II. Compte tenu du fait que Foulques Ier commença sa carrière vers 886, il est probablement mort peu après 941.

Foulques le Roux est cité dans "la Chronique des exploits des Comtes d'Anjou", texte écrit de 1100 à 1140 par un moine angevin, à la demande de Foulques le Réchin.

In English:

Foulque I Le Roux was the first Count of Anjou, 930-942, having been first Vicomte d'Angers (898-930) and Tours (898-909) and Comte de Nantes (909-919). He was from the Ingelgieriens family and son of Vicomte Ingelger, and perhaps Aelendis.

"Foulque Le Roux, son of Ingelger, occupies the County of Anjou. If he was not gifted with all the qualities that had earned his father's vast fortune, if he had not the beauty of body, wisdom of reign, frank language, purity of morals, strong liver, and knowledge of letters, he at least had the merit that as a warrior he was bold, enterprising, and brave, fearing neither hunger nor fatigue. His courageous opposition to the attacks of the Normans and Bretons led to the forgiveness of jealous nobility and independent clergy of his sense of concealment and deceit, his boundless ambition, and his licentious life."

He was citied for the first time in a charter of April 886, and then as Vicomte in another charter of September 29, 898, signed by Vicomte Hardrada of Tours. In another charter of 909, he is called the Vicomte de Tours. In 909, following the death of Alain le Grand, the Vicomte de Tours was given to Thibaud l'Ancien, and he received instead the County of Nantes. He was given the responsibility of fighting against the Normans and the Britons.

Nantes was taken by the Normans in 914, and Foulques waved the rights to the county in 919. He did retain the title of Comte, but this title was finally recognized in 930, when his lord Hugh the Great described him as such in one of his charters. He spent most of his life fighting the Vikings.

He married Roscille, daughter of Garnier (Warnerius), Lord of Loches and Tescende, and had:

1. Ingelger, who died before 929 (probably in 927), killed during an engagement with the Vikings.

2. Gui (Widdo), Canon of St-Martin de Tours, and then Bishop of Soissons 937-973.

3. Foulque II le Bon, Comte d'Anjou

4. Roscille Anjou, who married Alain II Barbetorte, Duc de Bretagne. The had a daughter, Gerberga de Nantes.

He was cited with his son Foulque II for the last time in August 941. A charter of May 942 mentions a Foulque as Comte d'Anjou, but we do not know if it was Foulque I or Foulque II. Given the fact that Foulque I began his career in 886, he probably died shortly after 941.

Foulque le Roux is quoted in the Chronicle of the Exploits of the Counts of Anjou," a text written in 1100-1140 by an Angevin monk at the request of Foulque de Rechin.
