Judicaël "Juhael" (d. 970 or by 979), Comte de Rennes,[1][2][1] witnessed charters of Alan II, Duke of Brittany, and on the latter's death apparently fell under the control of Wicohen, Archbishop of Dol. Later sources report the rescue of Judicael and his (unnamed) wife by his son Conan I. He appears to have been dead by 979, when his son was at the court of Odo I, Count of Blois.

Disputed Father: Count Berengar vs. Pascwetan the younger
Conflicting accounts either make him son and successor to a count Berenger (sometimes Berengar of Rennes, sometimes with that man's supposed maternal grandson of the same name) and a daughter of Gurvand, Duke of Brittany.[3] Another 11th-century collection of Angevin genealogies shows him to be son of Pascweten, son of Alan I, joint duke of Brittany.[4]

  • (disputed) Father: Count Berengar[5] OR Pascwetan[6]
  • (disputed) Mother: UNKNOWN de Bretagne (father: Gurwent (Gurvand), Duke of Brittany[7]

  • Conan de Rennes, Comte de Rennes, later Conan I "le tort," Duke of Britanny (d. 27 Jun 992 Conquereil)[2]

I think John Atkinson wants to put the Henry Project over for this line. ... The Henry Project lean's towards Juhel's possible/unproven father as Pasweten the younger.[1]
