Fulcrad (or Folcrat) was the Duke of Provence, probably succeeding Guerin, in the mid-9th century. His title of duke (Latin dux) signified his military command over the other counts of the Provençal country. During his tenure, Marseille came under attack from Greek and Saracen pirates, and the Vikings, who were drawn into alliance with Pepin II of Aquitaine at this time, assaulted the Rhone Valley.
In 845, Fulcrad revolted against the Emperor Lothair I from his base of Marseille, destablising the entire region. The emperor came down and forced him to surrender. Fulcrad was reconciled to the emperor by the next year (846).
