Misc. Notes
W.H.Turton, "The Plantagenet Ancestry" (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1968), p. 6, states that Hugues l'Abbi (d. 844) is father of Tertullus d'Anjou (instead of Conrad of Paris), and that Hughes l`Abbi is a son of Charlemagne and Regine. Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1956 Ed., 1:976: "...towards 861, Charles the Bald entrusted [the county of Anjou] to Robert the Strong, but he unfortunately met with his death in 866.... Hugh the Abbot succeeded him in the countship of Anjou as in most of his other duties, and on his death (886) it passed to Odo, the eldest son of Robert the Strong, who, on his accession to the throne of France (888), probably handed it over to his brother Robert. In any case, during the last years of the 9th century, in Anjou as elsewhere the power was
delegated to a viscount, Fulk the Red, son of a certain Ingelgerius."
