Seneschal of France. According to a contemporary satirical poem, Comte Landry helped maintain the second marriage of Robert II King of France to Berthe de Bourgogne. "Landricus comes" donated property to the abbey of Flavigny by charter dated 28 Jul 1002 subscribed by "Bodo filius eius, Landricus filius eius…". He rebelled against King Robert after the death of Henri Duke of Burgundy in 1002, but a settlement was later reached and was confirmed by the betrothal of Landry's son Renaud to the king's daughter, whose dowry was the county of Auxerre. "Landricus…comes" donated property to Cluny by charter dated to [1010] subscribed by "…Rainaldi eius filii…".

The Miracula Sancti Bernardi names "Landrico…Nivernensium comite" and records his death "Gordone castro". The Annales Nivernenses record the death "1028 V Id Maii" of "Landricus comes". The necrology of Auxerre cathedral records the death 11 May of "Landricus comes".
