About Galeran I, vicomte de Meulan

The county of Meulan developed outside Norman territory in the Vexin near Paris. The counts became vassals of the Norman dukes by the end of the 11th century, presumably in respect of territories granted to them in Normandy itself. Meulan may have been an important fortification prior to that time, as Guillaume de Jumièges records that "Rollo" captured “Mellenti municipium” after defeating “Rainaldus totius Franciæ dux” at the river Eure[3202], maybe dateable to [900].
