Judicael Berengar, Count of Rennes


Personal Information

  • Name Judicael Berengar 
    • There are conflicting accounts of his parentage, one popular solution making him the son and successor of a count Berengar (sometimes identified with Berengar of Rennes, sometimes with that man's supposed maternal grandson of the same name by a daughter of Gurvand, Duke of Brittany. However, an 11th-century collection of Angevin genealogies describes him as the son of Pascweten, son of Alan I, King of Brittany.

      In 939 he fought alongside Alan II, Duke of Brittany and Hugh II of Maine against the Vikings at the Battle of Trans-la-Forêt.

      He is first documented as a Count in the year 944.
      He witnessed charters of Alan II, Duke of Brittany, and on the latter's death apparently fell under the control of Wicohen, Archbishop of Dol. Later sources report the rescue of Judicael and his (unnamed) wife by his son Conan I. He appears to have been dead by 979, when his son was at the court of Odo I, Count of Blois.
