About Gausbert, du Maine

GAUSLIN, son of --- . He is named as father of Rorico in the charter dated 1 Mar 839, quoted below.

x ADELTRUDIS, daughter of ---. She is named as mother of Comte Rorico in the following charter: “Rorgo comes” donated “predium...in pago Andecavo in condita Maciacense...in Valegia...loco...Maisnisias”, which “genitor meus Gauzlinus et mater mea Adeltrudis habuerunt”, to the abbey of Saint-Maur-sur-Loire, confirmed by Dodon Bishop of Anjou by charter dated 1 Mar 839[28]. Her inclusion in the document suggests that she had a direct interest in the property donated in her own right, which if correct indicates that Adeltrudis originated in the county of Anjou.

Gauslin & his wife had two children:

1. RORICO [Rorgo [I]] (-16 Jun [839/40], bur Abbaye de Saint-Maur de Glanfeuil, Anjou). His relationship with one of the daughters of Emperor Charlemagne suggests that Rorico probably lived at the emperor's court in the early 9th century, but no confirmation of this suggestion has been found in contemporary documentation. Comte du Maine. The Actus pontificum Cenomannis names "Cenomannis…comite eiusdem parrochie Rorigone", in a passage which records the enthronement of bishop Aldric in 832[29]. Considering that Guy was named as comte du Maine in [832/34], one possibility is that this enthronement was incorrectly dated in this source. Another possibility is that two counts held power in the county at the same time, although no other primary source indication has been identified which suggests that this is correct. Emperor Louis I confirmed the donation made by "comes Rorigo…cum sue coniuge Bilechilde" to "cœnobium Glannafoliense Fossatensi in pago Andegavo" by charter dated 833[30]. “Rorgo comes” donated “predium...in pago Andecavo in condita Maciacense...in Valegia...loco...Maisnisias”, which “genitor meus Gauzlinus et mater mea Adeltrudis habuerunt”, to the abbey of Saint-Maur-sur-Loire (later known as Glanfeuil) in which “germanus noster Gausbetus...et filium nostrum Gauslinum” followed the religious life, confirmed by Dodon Bishop of Anjou by charter dated 1 Mar 839, signed by “Rortgonis comitis, Bilechildis uxoris eius, Gausberti fratris eius...”[31].

2. GAUSBERT (-after 1 Mar 839). “Rorgo comes” donated property to the abbey of Saint-Maur-sur-Loire in which “germanus noster Gausbetus...et filium nostrum Gauslinum” followed the religious life, confirmed by Dodon Bishop of Anjou by charter dated 1 Mar 839, signed by “Rortgonis comitis, Bilechildis uxoris eius, Gausberti fratris eius...”[61].
