Count of Rheims, Seigneur de Roucy

Son of the Viking Rognvald (Reinald) who was one of the Norse invaders who chose to remain in Burgundy. Renaud married Albreda, the daughter of Giselbert (Gilbert) Count of Hainault, Duke of Lorraine and Gerberga of Saxony, a direct descendant of The Holy Roman Emperors Lothiar and Charles the Bald, and Charlemagne. They were married circa 945 and had the following children:
* Gilbert De Roucy
* Ermetrude de Roucy, wife of Othon Guillaume de Bourgogne
* Unknown daughter, wife of Fromond of Sens
* Bruno, Bishop of Langres

Renaud became the military chief of Reims after the restoration of Artald of Reims, built a fort at Roucy and supported young King Lothair of France in the expedition at Aquitaine and the siege of Poitiers, who later made Renaud the Count of Roucy.

Renaud died in 10 May 967 and was buried at the Abbey of Saint-Remi, according to Wikipedia.
