From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Judith of Nantes (died 27 February 1063) was titular Countess of Nantes from 1051 to her death in 1063.
In 1054, Conan vainly tried to seize Nantes and had to accept defeat. Hoël ruled the County of Nantes in his mother's name from this date. He first concluded his reconciliation with Conan II by marrying his sister Hawise before 1058. In 1059, he imposed his younger brother Guerech as Bishop of Nantes to replace Airard, a reformative cleric and Abbot of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, who had been chased by the inhabitants of Nantes as early as 1051.
Judith died on 27 February 1063.
