Foulque I "le Roux" Comte d´Anjou names "Ingelgerio genitore meo…" in a charter dated to [929/30]. There is doubt whether the other references to Ingelger, which follow, accurately reflect the historical reality of his life. The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum names "Ingelgerius" as son of "Tertullus nobilem dux" and his wife. The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum names "Ingelgerius…iuvenis filius Tortulfi". The Chronico Turonensi names "Ingelgerius comes Andergavensis" as "nepos Hugonis Ducis Burgundiæ". Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks gave him "a piece of a fief in the castle of Landonense".
He was installed as vicomte of the city of Orléans by Louis II "le Bègue" King of the West Franks, and appointed as royal representative at Tours. The Historia Comitum Andegavorum records that Louis II "le Bègue" King of the West Franks, therefore dated to [877/79], granted "dimidium Andegavis comitatum" to "Ingelgerius".
The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records that Ingelger died from "focositatem, phthisim et hydropisim". The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records the burial of "Ingelgerius" at "ecclesia beati Martini Castrinovi". 2
Ingelger married Adèle DE BUZANÇAIS, daughter of Vcte Foulques D' ANGERS and Unknown D' AMBOISE, about 878.
