MATUEDO I Duc de Poher and Hawise of Bretagne

MATUEDO I Duc de Poher. (Mathue'doi I). [BOYD Family Chart].
Born (about 880)(in 885) in Bretagne, France.

Often said to be the son of ALAIN I Duc de Dol, le Grand, and Qrequen de Rennes. However, Rodney Timbrook Ancestors and Relatives says Matuedo I is the son-in-law, not the son, of Alain I Duc de Dol. (S1).

Out of the union of the Breton royal family and that of the Counts of Rennes and Nantes came Alain III the Great or Grand, surnamed le Poher, Duke of Brittany. At his death in 909, joint succession fell to his son-in-law Count Mathuedoi of Poher and his cousin Gurmhailion (Geoffrey) who was Count of Cornouailles. Mathuedoi renounced his claim and exiled himself to England, but his son Alain Barbe-tort (Red Beard), reclaimed the duchy around 970. According to Hubert Guillotel this restoration would be reached with that of Louis IV of France as part of an overall negotiation including, William I of Normandy, Hugh the Great and Herbert II of Vermandois. (S1).

Married to a daughter of Alain I of Britain, Mathuedoi is mixed with strife-born death of Alain. Gourmelon Cornish took advantage of the situation to be recognized as sovereign of Britain. This is an executive authority without leaving the kingdom failed to fall while the Vikings are taking advantage of the situation to destroy the land. (S1).

Count Mathuedoï involved in several charters of the Cartulary of Redon. Around 920, he was forced into exile with arms, baggage and family. He is hosted by the English king Athelstan, and never left England. (S1).

The same will Athelstan fifteen years later his godson Barbetort Alain, son of Mathuedoi in regaining his throne, which will also more than non-royal and ducal, having expelled the Normans outside Britain. (S1).

Died in 952 in France. (S1).

Hawise de Bretagne. (Havoise). [BOYD Family Chart].
Born about 880 at Penthiève, Bretagne, France; daughter of ALAIN I Duc de Dol, le Grand, and requen de Rennes.
