  • Notes 
    • Count of Angoulême. From Leo van de Pas' site (citation details below): "Alduin fought the Vikings invading Aquitaine, and to that end in 886 he extended the city ramparts of Angoulême. He was said to be in possession of a splinter of wood from the True Cross which his father had received from the abbey of Charroux as a Christian symbol inspiring victory in the struggle against the Vikings. The monks demanded the return of this relic from Alduin, who refused. He suffered a serious illness and his followers began to roam like wolves through the land on the hunt for human flesh. He had a golden reliquary shrine built by his son Guillaume who brought it to Charroux, whereupon the curse came to an end."
