2. GELDUIN (-bur Pontlevoy Sainte-Marie). Seigneur de Saumur. The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Gelduinus vir nobilis ex genere Danorum" who held "castro Salmurensi…in Blesensis comitis". m firstly GERBERGE du Perche, daughter of HERVE [I] Comte du Perche & his wife Melisende ---. The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified. m secondly ANORDIS, daughter of --- (-bur Pontlevoy Sainte-Marie). The Gesta Ambaziensium records that "Gelduinus" founded "Pontilevi…abbatiam Sanctæ Mariæ" where he and "uxoris eius Aanordis" were buried. Gelduin & his [first] wife had two children:
a) GEOFFROY "Puella" . The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Gosfridum…Puella vocatus…sororem Chanam" as children of "Gelduinus vir nobilis ex genere Danorum". Seigneur de Chaumont-sur-Loire.
b) CANA . The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Gosfridum…Puella vocatus…sororem Chanam" as children of "Gelduinus vir nobilis ex genere Danorum", specifying that Cana married "Frangalo Filgeriarum dominus" and had many sons and daughters. It is not certain that this Cana was the same Cana as the sister of "Gosfridus de Calvo Monte" whose daughter "Dionisiam" married "Supplicio Lisoii filio". However, the burial of Denise at Pontlevoy, founded by Cana's parents, suggests that this is probably correct. It is possible that this is the same person as Cana, daughter of Gelduin Seigneur de Pontlevoie, who married as his second wife, Raoul [V] Vicomte de Beaumont. If this is correct, her marriage to Vicomte Raoul would probably have been her second marriage. m [as her first husband,] FRANGALO Seigneur de Fougères, son of ---. Frangalo & his wife had one child:
3. daughter . The Gesta Ambaziensium names "Aanordim filiam Berlai de Musteriolo ortam ex sorore Gelduini de Salmurio" as the wife of "Hugonis de Sancta Maria". m BERLAY de Montreuil, son of ---.
Gelduin married Aénor DE DOUÉ. (Aénor DE DOUÉ was born about 945 in Doue-la-Fontaine, Maine-et-Loire, Anjou/Pays-de-la-Loire, France.)
