Facts and Events
- the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia
Lambert II (died 852) was the Count of Nantes and Prefect of the Breton March between 843 and 851. Lambert ruled the county in opposition to Amaury, the puppet count installed by Charles the Bald, King of West Francia. At his death, the county was effectively in Breton control. Lambert was the son of Lambert I and his wife Itta.

Wikipedia indicates that he had a son also named Lambert, and there is an entry for Lambert III, who married Rotrud. This appears to be an error, possibly based on the fact that the death of Lambert II was recorded in a document in 860 as well as being reported as occurring in 852. However, in both records, Lambert was killed by Count Gauzberto.
