About Geoffroy I, comte de Gâtinais


The county of Gâtinais was ceded to Philippe I King of France in 1068 by Foulques IV "le Réchin" Comte d´Anjou to obtain the king´s recognition of his accession as count after he deposed and imprisoned his brother Geoffroy III "le Barbu" Comte d´Anjou et de Gâtinais[845]. Thereafter it remained part of the domaine royale of the Capetian kings of France.

1. GEOFFROY [I] de Château-Landon, son of --- (-after Nov 991). Seigneur de Château-Landon. Comte de Gâtinais. "Gausfridi comitis Wastinensis" subscribed the charter dated to [985/87] under which "Teduinus" donated "alodum…Vileta…in pago Wastinensis" to the abbey of Saint-Père de Chartres for the souls of "patris sui Adelardi et matris suæ Eldegardis"[846].

m as her first husband, BEATRIX de Mâcon, daughter of AUBRY II Comte de Mâcon & his wife Ermentrude de Roucy. A genealogy presented by Foulques IV "le Réchin" Comte d'Anjou to the bishop of Angers in [1085], justifying the annulment of his fourth marriage with the daughter of Gauthier Comte de Brienne, lists "ex Letaldo, Albericus natus est, ex Alberico, Beatrix, ex Beatrice, Gosfredus de Castello Landonensi, ex Gaufrido, Gaufridus et Fulco presens"[847]. She married secondly Hugues du Perche, her second marriage being confirmed by the charter of her son "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum" dated 26 May 1028 (see below) approved by "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo"[848]. Geoffroy [I] & his wife had one child:

a) AUBRY [Alberic] de Gâtinais (-before 8 Mar 1030). Francon Bishop of Paris agreed with "Albericum illius supradicti Gosfredi filium et heredum", concerning a prior grant by the bishop's predecessor to "Gosfrido comiti Landonensi castri", with the approval of "fratribus ipsius Alberici, filiis Hugonis Pertice…Gosfredo et Letoldo", by charter dated 26 May 1028[849]. He succeeded as Comte de Gâtinais, Seigneur de Château-Landon.


The counts of Gâtinais inherited the county of Anjou in 1067, an unforeseen result of a dynastic marriage in [1035]. However, Gâtinais was transferred to the domaine royale shortly afterwards, as a result of the war between the brothers Geoffroy III "le Barbu" Comte d'Anjou and Foulques IV "le Rechin"[4]. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
