The Catalogus Principum Salerni records that "Paldulfum filium Pandulfi Capuæ principis eius atfinis" was adopted by Gisulf I Duke of Salerno as his heir after Pandolf's father helped to restore him to the throne of Salerno in 973[872]. His birth date range is estimated from his being still a minor on his accession in 977, but bearing in mind that he associated his son in his rule before Feb 993.
