"Hugonis ducis, Odonis comitis, Hugonis sanctæ Bituricensis archipræsulis, Letgardis comitissæ, Bertæ comitissæ, Gauzfridi vicecomitis…" subscribed the charter dated 985 under which "Robertus" donated property to "Sancti Petri Carnotensis", on the advice of "Odonem, simul cum sua matre Ledgarde, pariterque dominam meam Bertam, ipsius æque coniugem"[1323].

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.

Lex suggests that this document was a 12th century falsification and 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].]
