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

Presumably the oldest, or oldest surviving legitimate, son.

Wikipedia: Eudo (or Eudes) I married Anne [or Emma] de Leon (1065-?). They had two children [who survived to adulthood], Vicomte Geoffrey de Porhoet (1092–1141) and Alain I de Rohan (1084–1147).

Contrary to popular legend, Eudo was not, and could not have been, a participant in the Norman Conquest of 1066; but he could have come over in the following decade or so to assist with pacification and settlement.
