The Genealogiae scriptoris Fusniacensis is a collection of genealogies of the Capetian dynasty from 866, especially useful for the light it sheds on the noble families of Lotharingia. It was written at the Abbey of Foigny in the diocese of Laon shortly after 1160, probably by the reigning abbot, Robert. Its twelve folios are now preserved in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (no. 9376). Its first editor divided it into twenty chapters.
