Hugh Capet King Of France

M, b. 939, d. October 24, 996

Parents

Family: Adelaide Princess Of Aquitaine (b. 945, d. 1004)

Biography

  • Birth: Hugh Capet King Of France was born in 939 in Paris, Paris, Ile-de-France, France.
  • Marriage: He and Adelaide Princess Of Aquitaine were married in 970.
  • Death: Hugh Capet King Of France died on October 24, 996, at age ~57, in Paris, Paris, Ile-de-France, France.
  • Burial: He was buried in St Denis Abbey, St Denis, Seine, France.
  • Note: Hugh Capet (circa 938-96), king of France, and founder of the Capetian dynasty, son of Hugh the Great, count of Paris, whom he succeeded in 956. His lordship over many fiefs around Paris and Orléans made him the virtual ruler of France, and when King Louis V of France, the last of the Carolingian line, died without an heir in 987, Hugh's numerous vassals enabled him to win the election to the throne, defeating the Carolingian candidate, Charles, duke of Lorraine. Charles and many other great nobles of the realm attempted to resist his authority but, through force of arms and by judicious purchasing of allegiance, as well as through the support of the church, of which he was a devout member, Hugh established a measure of order within his kingdom. He had his son, Robert the Pious (later Robert II), elected and crowned his associate and successor in 988, thereby confirming the house of Capet, which ruled France until 1328. See Also Capet.

    Capet, family name of the dynasty of kings that ruled France from 987 to 1328. In 987, on the death of Louis V, the last of the Carolingian kings of France, Hugh Capet, duke of France and count of Paris, was elected king by the nobility and the clergy. The feudal domain of the Capet family was Île de France, the area around Paris. The Capetian kings greatly strengthened the royal power in France by insisting on the principles of heredity, primogeniture, and indivisibility of crown lands. Shortly after Hugh became king, he had his son Robert crowned as Robert II (known as the Pious). Hugh appointed Robert his associate, and this practice of the father having his eldest son rule with him was followed until the late 12th century. The greatest of the Capetian kings were Philip II Augustus, Louis IX (St. Louis), and Philip IV. The dynasty secured direct overlordship of almost all France by the process of incorporating additional fiefs, large and small, with their own territories. In 1328, when Charles IV died without male heirs, the Capetians were succeeded by the Valois, a younger branch of the family, which ruled France until 1589.
