Herbert I Count of Vermandois and Lord of Peronne and St. Quentin was born in 848 in Vermandois, Aisne, Picardie, France. He was the son of Pepin, Count of Vermandois (817-850) and Rothaide de Bobbio Comtess de Vermandois (812-858).

Herbert married Countess Bertha Beatrice de Morvois (848-916) in Vermandois, Aisne, Picardie, France in 879. Bertha was the daughter of Guerri I de Morvois (820-886) and Eva of Roussillon Countess of Morvois (825-862).

Herbert and Bertha were the parents of the following known children: Herbert II, Count of Vermandois, Béatrice of Vermandois (880–931), married King Robert I of France, Sprota de Vermandois, Pepin Vermandois, Berenger of Vermandois Count of Bayeux and Cunigunde of Vermandois.

A contemporary of Baldwin II, Count of Flanders he had the advantage of being a Carolingian, a grandson of Pippin, King of Italy. He was also a descent (great-great grandson) from Charlemagne (was the King of the Franks from 768, the King of Italy from 774, and from 800 the first emperor in western Europe). Herbert controlled both St. Quentin and Péronne and his activities in the upper Somme river valley may have caused Baldwin II to have him assassinated in 907.

Herbert arranged a marriage alliance to Robert of Neustria by giving in marriage his daughter Beatrice as Robert's second wife. As a part of this pact Herbert also agreed to his son Herbert II of Vermandois marrying Adela, Robert's daughter by his first wife.
