Poppo of Grapfeld
Poppo I (died 839-841) was a Frankish count in the Grapfeld (Grabfeld) from 819-839. Probably a descendant of the Robertian count Cancor, he became the ancestor of the Frankish House of Babenberg (Popponids).
Poppo was a "leading man of the Franks" in 838-839, when he and several other noblemen, including Gebhard, Count of the Lahngau, Count Adalbert of Metz and Archbishop Odgar of Mainz opposed Louis the German's revolt against Emperor Louis the Pious.
