Comte de Bayeux. According to Orderic Vitalis, Rollo "stormed and captured Bayeux, slew its count Berengar and took to wife his daughter Poppa". In another passage, the same source records that Rollo besieged Paris, captured Bayeux, killed "Berengarium comitem" and married his daughter Popa, in 886, although this date appears early in light of the likely birth date range of the couple's son Guillaume. 1

  Marriage Information:

Bérenger married Unnamed DU VEXIN, daughter of Pépin CAROLING, Comte de Péronne & St-Quentin, and (Chrothais) Rothais DU VEXIN. (Unnamed DU VEXIN died on 13 December, in 892 or after.)
