  • Name Ingelger  
    Gender Male 
    History Ingelger was a Frankish nobleman who stands at the head of the Plantagenet dynasty. Later generations of his family believed he was the son of Tertulle and Petronilla. He was born in Rennes.

    Around 877 he inherited his father Tertulle\'s lands in accordance with the Capitulary of Quierzy which Emperor Charles \'the Bald\' had issued. His father\'s holdings from the king included Château-Landon _in beneficium,_ and he was a _casatus_ in the Gâtinais and Francia. Contemporary records refer to Ingelger as a _miles optimus,_ a great military man.

    Later family tradition makes his mother a relative of Hugues the Abbot, an influential counsellor of both Louis II and Louis III of France, from whom he received preferment. By Louis II, Ingelger was appointed viscount of Orléans, which was under the rule of its bishops at the time. At Orléans Ingelger made a matrimonial alliance with one of the leading families of Neustria, the lords of Amboise. He married Aelinde, daughter of Geoffroy I, comte de Gâtinais; her maternal uncles were Adalard, archbishop of Tours, and Raino, bishop of Angers. Later Ingelger was appointed prefect (military commander) at Tours, then ruled by Adalard.

    At some point Ingelger was appointed count of Anjou, at a time when the county stretched only as far west as the Mayenne River. Later sources credit his appointment to his defence of the region from Vikings, but modern scholars have been more likely to see it as a result of his wife\'s influential relatives. He was buried in the Church of Saint-Martin at Châteauneuf-sur-Sarthe. He was succeeded by his son Foulques I \'the Red\', who would have progeny.  [2
