Saloman, Duke of Brittany
Saloman (died 874), was king of Brittany, from 857 to his death. Saloman became ruler of Brittany after the murder of his cousin, Duke Erispoe. In 863, Saloman signed the treaty of Entrammes with Charles I of France, where Anjou was recognised as a part of Brittany. He was murdered in 874, and was succeeded by his son-in-law.
His name in Breton is SalaŁn. He is also called Saint Saloman, but only the popular tradition did canonize him and raise him to the rank of martyr.
