Foulques I "le Roux" comte d'Anjou was the son of Ingelger and his wife, Adelais as stated in The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum with "Ingelgerius…filius eius Fulco cognominatus Rufus" [Chronica de Gesta Consulum Andegavorum, Chroniques d'Anjou, p. 63]. Foulques "le Roux" became comte d'Anjou. "Domni Fulconis Andecavorum comitis, Tedbaldi Turonorum vicecomitis" subscribed the charter dated 30 Oct 909 under which the testamentary executors of "domni Gauzuini" donated property to Saint-Martin de Tours [Mabille (1871), Pièces justificatives, IV, p. xcvi]. He married Rosciller de Loches, daughter of Garnier Seigneur de Loches, Villentrasti et Haia & his wife Tescenda . The Gesta Consulum Andegavorum records the marriage of Comte Foulques and "de pago Turonico…Roscillam, Warnerii filiam", specifying that "Warnerius…filius Adalaudi" had three castles "in Turonico…Lochas atque Villentrasti et Haia" which Foulques later acquired [57]. "Falco comes Andecavorum iuvenis" names "uxor mea Roscila et filii mei Guido et Fulco" in a donation of property "pro anima Ingelgerii patris mei et iterum Ingelgerii filii mei et Vuarnerii soceri mei et uxoris suæ Tescendæ" by charter dated 929 [Angers 33, p. 74].

Foulques married Roscille de Loches, daughter of Garnier de Loches Seigneur Villandry et la Haie and Tescenda. (Roscille de Loches was born about 874 in France.)
