    History Judith was the daughter and heiress of Judicael, comte de Nantes, and his wife Melisende. About 1026 she married Alain Cagniart, comte de Cornouaille, son of Benoit, comte de Cornouaille, and his wife Guigoëdon. They had six children of whom Hoel V and Agnès would have progeny.

    On the death in 1050 of Judith\'s nephew, the young Mathias I, comte de Nantes, the only son of her brother Budic, comte de Nantes, her husband Alain Cagniart took over the rule of the county of Nantes on behalf of their son Hoel, despite the claims of Conon II, duc de Bretagne, the son of Alain III, who attempted unsuccessfully to seize Nantes in 1054. Hoel governed the county of Nantes in the name of his mother after that date. He sealed his reconciliation with Conon II of Brittany by marrying his sister Havise.

    Judith died on 27 February 1063.  [1
