CONAN de Rennes, son of JUDICAËL [Juhael] Comte de Rennes & his wife Gerberge --- (-killed in battle Conquereil 27 Jun 992).

The Chronicle of Nantes names "Conano filio Judicael Berengarii Redonensi comite" when recording that he held a large part of Brittany from Thibaut [II] Comte de Blois and fought with Hoël Comte de Nantes[120]. His parentage is confirmed by the Chronico Sancti Michaelis which records the death of his grandson "Gaufridus Dux Britanniæ filius Conani filii Juhelli Berengarii" in 1008[121]. Comte de Rennes. He succeeded in [970] as CONAN I "le Tort" Duke of Brittany. Rodulfus Glaber records that Conan "crowned himself with a royal diadem", was defeated by his brother-in-law Foulques Comte d'Anjou, and surrendered after his right hand had been cut off[122]. The Chronico Sancti Michaelis records that "Conanus Brito…filius Juhelli Berengarii" was killed in battle "V Kal Jul 992" against Foulques Comte d'Anjou[123]. The Chronicle of Nantes reports that he was killed at the battle of Conquereuil[124], dated "992 V Kal Jul" in the Chronicon britannicum[125]. The Chronicon Kemperlegiense records the death "in bello Conçurruç…V Kal Jul" of "Conanus comes, filius Iudicaëlis Berengarii Comitis Redonensis"[126].

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

Judicael Berengar[1] was Count of Rennes, son and successor to Berengar of Rennes.

Berengar brought Capetian influences to Brittany, which secured the place of Judicael's son by Gerberge, Conan I of Rennes who became Duke of Brittany. His brother-in-law was William I of Normandy.

-------------------- Judicael alias Berengar[1] was Count of Rennes in the mid-to-late 10th century. There are conflicting accounts of his parentage, one popular solution making him son and successor to a count Berenger (sometimes identified with Berengar of Rennes, sometimes with that man's supposed maternal grandson of the same name[2]) by a daughter of Gurvand, Duke of Brittany. However, an 11th century collection of Anjevin genealogies shows him to be son of Pascweten, son of Alan I, King of Brittany.

He is first documented as count in 944. He witnessed charters of Alan II, Duke of Brittany, and on the latter's death apparently fell under the control of Wicohen, Archbishop of Dol, later sources reporting the rescue of Judicael and his (unnamed) wife by son Conan. He appears to have been dead by 979, when his son was at the court of Odo I, Count of Blois.

Notes

^ Juhel, Judhel, Judhael in Breton sources, Berengarius or Berengarii in Frankish, sometimes both names given together.

^ There is no primary evidence of a younger count Berengar, other than records that refer to Judicael himself using his Frankish alias.

Alternate: Judicael Berengar

Stuart's "Royalty For Commoners" (334:36) referes to him as Count of Rennes and a leader against the Norsemen.

Per "The Bretons" by Galliou and Jones, a 15 year remission from Viking raiders in Brittany brutally ended in 913. In the next few years several Viking states, similiar to the one forming in Normandy, were established in Brittany. The county of Nantes was abandoned to the Vikings in 921 by KING ROBERT I of France. WILLIAM LONGSWORD, Duke of the Normans, aqdvanced through the Contenin and the Avaranchin. About 936, WILLIAM assented to the return to Brittany of Alain

Barbetote, Count of Cournaille from England - the same year that LOUIS IV D"OUTREMER returned to France from England to reestablish Carolingian rule there. An earlier attempt by Alain to regain his inheritance in 931 had failed. While other Breton counts were seeking refuge at the English court, Berenger of Rennes alone remained to withstand the Viking onslaught. He was surrounded by them. Direct contact between the rulers of Brittany and the Kings of France gradually ceased in the course of the 10th century. No Duke of Brittany acknowledged fealty of performed homage directly to the King of France until 1099. Following Alain Barbatorte's death in 952, leaving no clear heir, a power vacuum in the duchy was filled by the Counts of Rennes.

"Todd A. Farmerie" posted to soc.genealogy.medieval on 22 Nov 1996 (in part): Subject: Re: ancestry of CONAN I, Duke of Brittany "I still follow the work of Lot and others from the turn of the century, who show Juhel/Judiceal Berenger as son of a Count Berenger, a Frank who rooted in Brittany toward the end of the 9th century, and who is perhaps identical with the Berenger of Bayeux that Rollo ran into. I am deeply suspicious of any attempt to harmonize all of the breton lines into a single royal family, suspecting instead that from the time of

Nominoe, there were several entities (i.e. Vannes, Nantes, etc.) of which the king/count was simply the most powerful at the time."

BERENGER, COUNT OF BAYEUX (RIN 1314), father of ROLLO's wife, POPPA, could, if Farmerie is correct, be his father.

References: [Theroff],[PlantagenetA],[ES],[Weis1],[AR7] -------------------- He was Count of Rennes (before 931) and a leader against the Northmen. Although he has been conjectured to belong to the old line of the Counts of Brittany, it seems likely that he was son of Count Bérenger, a Frank who settled in Brittany.
