  • Name Beggo (Beagle)  
    Suffix Count of Toulouse 
    Gender Male 
    History Beggo (died 28 October 816) was the son of Gerard I of Paris. He was appointed Count of Toulouse, Duke of Septimania, Duke of Aquitaine, and Margrave of the Hispanic March in 806 and followed his father as Count of Paris in 815.

    In 806, William of Gellone abdicated and Charlemagne appointed Beggo to take his place in Toulouse and the March of Gothia. He did not succeed his father in Paris, but was later placed in the comital office there, but did not live long after that.

    He married Alpais or Alpheidis. Their children were:

    Leuthard II, who later ruled Paris
    Susanna, whose son was Adalhard, eighth Count of Paris
    Engeltrude, whose son was Eberhard of Friuli  [1
    History Bego was born about 755/760, the second son of Gerhard I, count of Paris, from his marriage with Rotrud. Until 811 Bego was count of Toulouse and margrave _(marchio)_ of Septimania. When his elder brother Etienne of Paris died in 811, Bego succeeded him and remained count of Paris until his death.

    After a first marriage with an unknown lady, about 806 he married Alpais de France, an illegitimate daughter of Emperor Louis I \'the Pious\', son of Charlemagne. In his last years he was one of the confidants of the emperor, having already been in Louis\' entourage when he was king of Aquitaine.

    From his marriage to Alpais, Bego had two sons, Leuthard and Eberhard, and a daughter Susanna whom some sources attribute to his first wife. Only Susanna is recorded with progeny, marrying Wulfhard between 825 and 830.

    Bego is remembered mainly because he had the monastery of Saint-Maur-des-Foss├ęs in Paris restored by Benedict of Aniane. Bego died on 28 October 816. After his death Alpais became abbess of the convent of St. Pierre de Rheims, which she had been given by her father, Emperor Louis.  [2
