Cte Eudon I DE PENTHIÈVRE Régent de Bretagne
- Born: Abt 999, Penthièvre, Morbihan, Bretagne, France

GEOFFREY, DUKE OF BRITTANY, married Hawise, daughter of Ric hard I, DUKE OFNORMANDY, and died in 1008, leaving two sons , Alan and Eudon. During their mother's lifetime the two br others seem to have been joint rulers of Brittany, but on h er death, on 21 February 1034, dissensions broke out betwee n them; peace was restored by a settlement under which Eudo n received a territory corresponding roughly to the diocese s of Dol, St. Mialo, St. Brieuc and Tréguier, reduced in th e hands of his successors to the two last-named dioceses, w hile Alan retained the rest of Brittany. After the death o f Alan in 1040 Eudon seized the government of Brittany to t he exclusion of his nephew Conan, who recovered it in 1057 . Eudon died 7 January 1079. He married Orguen, whose paren tage is unknown. [Complete Peerage X:779-81, (transcribed b y Dave Utzinger)]
