    Notes 
    • “PEPIN [I], son of BERNARD I King of Italy [Carolingian] & his wife Cunegundis --- ([815]-after 850). Regino names "Pippinum" son of "Bernhardus filius Pippin rex Italiæ". Seigneur de Péronne et de Saint-Quentin. Comte near Paris after 834. He supported Emperor Lothaire after the death of Emperor Louis I "le Pieux", despite having sworn allegiance to Charles II "le Chauve". The Annales Bertiniani name "Ratholdus…episcopus, Bonifacius comes, Pippinus consanguineus imperatoris" as supporters of Emperor Louis I in 834.
      m ---. The name of Pépin's wife is not known. Settipani suggeststhat the wife of Comte Pépin was --- [du Vexin], daughter of THEODERIC, son of NIBELUNG Comte du Vexin, bearing in mind that Pépin's descendants inherited estates in the Vexin.
      Comte Pépin & his wife had five children:
      1. BERNARD [I] ([845]-[before 893]). Regino names (in order) "Bernardum, Pippinum et Heribertum" as the three children of "Pippinum". According to Italian authors, Bernard went to Italy and was the ancestor of the Bernardhengi. Settipani is sceptical about this, particularly as the names Pepin and Heribert are not found among the alleged descendants. He suggests that comte Bernard may be the same Bernard recorded as one of the executors of Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks in 877. "Adelelm et Bernard comtes de la region du Laonnais" donated property to Sainte-Marie de Laon as executors of the testament of Charles II "le Chauve" King of the Franks.
      2. PEPIN [II] ([845]-after 28 Jan 893]). Regino names (in order) "Bernardum, Pippinum et Heribertum" as the three children of "Pippinum". At the court of Emperor Charles “le Chauve” in 877, thereafter Comte to the north of Paris. Emperor Karl III confirmed a grant of property including "villamque in Pipenensi comitatatu quæ Nogenlis dicitur" to the church of Grandval by charter dated 20 Sep 884. Regino names "Folcone episcopo, Heriberto et Pippino comitibus in Remorum civitate" when recording that they supported the accession of Charles III "le Simple" King of the West Franks in 892 in opposition to King Eudes, but does not specify the relationship between Heribert and Pepin.
      3. HERIBERT ([850]-killed [900/6 Nov 907]). Regino names (in order) "Bernardum, Pippinum et Heribertum" as the three children of "Pippinum", specifying that Heribert killed "Rodulfum comitem filium Balduini comitis". "Heribertus, Bernhardi frarater" is named in the Vita Hludowicis Imperatoris. Regino names "Folcone episcopo, Heriberto et Pippino comitibus in Remorum civitate" when recording that they supported the accession of Charles III "le Simple" King of the West Franks in 892 in opposition to King Eudes, but does not specify the relationship between Heribert and Pepin. Heribert became Comte de Vermandois in 896.
      - COMTES de VERMANDOIS.
      4. [CUNEGUNDIS. Cunegundis was cited in a list of relations of comte Odo, son-in-law of Héribert I Comte de Vermandois, without any indication of how she may have been related to the family.]
      5. [daughter . [m firstly BERENGER Comte [de Bayeux], son of --- (-13 Dec [892 or after]). The necrology of Le Mans Cathedral records the death "Id Dec" of "Beringerius comes". As explained below, one way of reconciling the apparently contraradictory sources which recount the origin of Poppa, wife of Rollo of Normandy, is that her mother married firstly Berengar Comte de Bayeux and secondly Guy Comte de Senlis. There is no proof that this is correct.] m [secondly] WIDO [Guy] Comte de Senlis, son of ---. [One possible child] [of second marriage]:
      a) [BERNARD [II] ([880]-after 945). Comte de Senlis. Flodoard records that "Heribertus comes" sent "Bernardum consobrinum suum" against Charles III "le Simple" King of the Franks in 923. He was instrumental in helping Richard Comte [de Normandie] escape from Louis IV King of the Franks, after the latter had taken him following the murder of his father in 942. Guillaume de Jumièges records that Richard was taking to Senlis where "le comte Bernard" was concerned for "son neveu Richarard". He was involved in negotiations for the betrothal in 945 of Richard I Comte [de Normandie] to Emma, daughter of Hugues Duc des Francs. Flodoard names "Bernardus Silvanectis comes et Tetbaldus Turonensis cum Heriberto castellum regis" when recording that they attacked "Montiniacum" at Easter 945 during the rebellion against King Louis. Hugo Floriacensis records that the king acted on bad advice from "Bernardi comitis Silvanectensis et alterius Bernardui Rothomagensis" which resulted in his defeat by "pagano Aygroldo regi Danorum" in 945.]

      The following individuals were probably related to the previous family group but the connection has not yet been established. The later transmission of Beauvais to the family of the Comtes de Vermandois indicates that a family relationship is probable. The most likely possibility is that Bernard and his unnamed sibling were children of Pépin (-after 28 Jan 893).

      1. BERNARD [III] (-after 10 Nov 949). A charter of King Louis IV dated 25 Jul 936 names "Bernardus Belvacensium comes". Flodoard records that "rex Ludowicus" besieged Reims with "Erluino…et Artoldo episcopi…comitibus quoque Bernardo ac Theoderico nepote ipsius" in 945 and reinstalled the bishop. Hugo Floriacensis records that the king acted on bad advice from "Bernardi comitis Silvanectensis et alterius Bernardui Rothomagensis" which resulted in his defeat by "pagano Aygroldo regi Danorum" in 945[567]. He may be identical with the king's adviser recorded in 10 Nov 949.
      2. [---. m ---.] One possible child:
      a) [THEODERIC (-after 949). Flodoard records that "rex Ludowicus" besieged Reims with "Erluino…et Artoldo episcopi…comitibus quoque Bernardo ac Theoderico nepote ipsius" in 945 and reinstalled the bishop[568]. Flodoard records that "Dodo frater domini Artoldi cum fidelibus ipsius et Theodericus comes" besieged "Altmontem" in 949.]”«s87» [1]
