Pardulus of Laon[a] was bishop of Laon from 847 to 857. He is known for his participation in theological controversy. A letter of his to Hincmar of Reims is known.[1]

Pardulus was a deacon of the cathedral of Reims before he became bishop. He was a bishop elect (episcopus vocatus) by April 847.[2] In the early 850s he was an ally of Robert the Strong and on good terms with the king, Charles the Bald, and the queen, Ermentrude.[3]
