    Notes 
    • All that is known of Poppa is that she was a Christian, and the daughter to Berengar of Rennes, the previous lord of Brittania Nova, which eventually became western Normandy.
    • Poppa of Bayeux was the Christian wife or mistress[1] (perhaps more danico)[2] of the Viking conqueror Rollo. She was the mother of William I Longsword and grandmother of Richard the Fearless, who would forge the Duchy of Normandy into a formidable principality in France.[3] Chronicler Dudo of Saint-Quentin relates that she was a daughter of a count named Berengar, captured at Bayeux by Rollo in 885 or 889. This has led to speculation that she was the daughter of Berengar II of Neustria. A statue of Poppa stands at the Place de Gaulle in Bayeux.
