France, County of Anjou, Fulk IV, 1068 - 1109, and Fulk V, 1109 - 1129
|France|, |France,| |County| |of| |Anjou,| |Fulk| |IV,| |1068| |-| |1109,| |and| |Fulk| |V,| |1109| |-| |1129|, NEWFulk IV (French: Foulques) was Count of Anjou, 1068 - 1109. He supposedly wrote a history of Anjou and its rulers. Only the first part describing his ancestry, is extant. The second part, supposedly describing Fulk's own rule, is lost. If he did write it, it is one of the first medieval works of history written by a layman.

Geoffrey IV, called Martel (the Hammer), was Count of Anjou, 1103 until his early death in 1106, either co-ruling with his father, Fulk IV, or in opposition to him. He was popular with the Church and grew a reputation for curbing tyranny and opposing his violent father, who, according to Orderic Vitalis, enjoyed pillaging and terrorizing his subjects.

Fulk the Younger, was Count of Anjou (as Fulk V), 1109 - 1129, and King of Jerusalem from 1131 to his death. He was also the paternal grandfather of Henry II of England.
