  • Notes 
    • Count in the Lahngau.

      Peter Stewart, 9 April 2017, post to soc.genealogy.medieval:

      You would be better off discarding any website that refers to 'Udo of Neustria' -- this designation is completely spurious.

      The person in question belonged to the Konradian family in eastern Francia (i.e. modern Germany). Udo was count in the Lahngau, except for a few years in the early 860s when he had to make himself scarce in his homeland and along with his brother Berengar he fetched up in Neustria under the aegis of their uncle Adalard the Seneschal. In that brief interval Adalard evidently held one of two marks (or marquisates) in Neustria, especially charged with defense against the Normans. Udo and Berengar held 'honores' under their uncle's authority, probably in the region of Le Mans. This arrangement did not last long and they were relieved of their posts in 865.

      Udo's wife is unknown, either by name or by family origin. It is thought she may been a uterine half-sister, or perhaps a cousin, of Emperor Arnulf, since Udo was most probably the father of Konrad the Elder, also a count in the Lahngau, who was called 'nepos' by Arnulf.
