King of France from 987 to 996. Coronation: 3 July 987, Noyons

From a wealthy and powerful family, the eldest son of Hugh the Great and Hedwige of Saxony (c.910-c.965). Hugh Capet wanted to become a lay abbot, and in 980 arranged to move the relics of St. Valery to Amiens Cathedral. He inherited his father's vast estates and became the most powerful noble of his time. Hugh allied himself with the German emperors, marrying the daughter of Emperor Otto, and exercised greater influence than the weak Carolingian king, Lothair. After Lothair and his son died in early 987, the archbishop of Reims convinced an assembly of nobles to elect Hugh Capet as their king. He was crowned King of France at Noyon, Picardie on July 3, 987, the first of the Capetian dynasty to rule France.

King Hugh possessed minor properties near Chartres and Anjou. Between Paris and Orléans he possessed towns and estates amounting to approximately 400 square miles. His authority ended there and if he dared travel outside his small area, he risked being ransomed or even murdered. Beyond this power base, in the rest of France, there were still as many codes of law as there were fiefdoms. The country operated with 150 different forms of currency and at least a dozen languages. Uniting all this into one cohesive unit was a formidable task and a constant struggle between those who wore the crown of France and its feudal lords. As such, Hugh Capet's reign was marked by numerous power struggles, both with the Roman Catholic Church and the vassals on the borders of the Seine and the Loire.

While King Hugh's military power was limited, and he had to seek military aid from the Duke of Normandy, his unanimous election as king gave him great moral authority and influence.

His children were: 1. Avoise (970-1013) 2. Robert II (March 27, 972 - July 20, 1031) 3. Alice (974-1079) 4. Gilette (c.976 - ukn) 5. Gisele (c.978 - ukn)

King Hugh Capet was succeeded by his son, Robert II.

The most authoritative information about Hughes is contained in the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy's Medieval Lands Index, which is available to read HERE.

From Colonial and Revolutionary Lineages of America, Vol. 1, p. 358

Hugh succeeded to his father's numerous fiefs in 956, thus becoming one of the most powerful feudatories of France. He supported his cousin Lothaire in a war against Otto II of Germany. When the son of Lothaire (Louis V) died, Hugh Capet was proclaimed King of the Franks in 987. He was the first to use the Capet surname; he ruled France from 987-986.
His kingdom included all of the present day France except for Brittany and Aquitaine. He was a devoted son of the church, interested in clerical reform and in participating in church ceremonies."
Duke of France between 956 and 987.
Lay-Abbot of St. Martin's in Tours, between 956 and 987. He joined the dignity of Abbot of St-Martin with the Crown of France in perpetuity in 987 [Transcribed by Douglas J. Potter The Catholic Encyclopedia, I-XIV (New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1908-1912), XV:Archdiocese of Tours].
He succeeded the last of the Carolingians to rule, Louis "do-Nothing." He ascended to the throne of France in May 987. He was crowned by Adalbero, Archbishop of Reims, on 3 July 987 in Noyon, France [Encyclopaedea Britannica and Joy Law, Fleur de Lys, The Kings and Queens of France (90 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3PT: Hamish Hamilton Ltd, 1976), pg. 27 - says "proclaimed 1 July, and consecrated 5 July" and Christian Settipani & Patrick van Kerrebrouck, La Prehistoire des Capetiens 481-987, Premiere partie: Merovingians, Carolingians et Robertiens (Villeneuve d'Ascq: Editions Christian, 1993), pg. 415].
King of Franks in France, between 3 July 987 and 24 October 996 [Christian Settipani & Patrick van Kerrebrouck, La Prehistoire des Capetiens 481-987, Premiere partie: Merovingians, Carolingians et Robertiens (Villeneuve d'Ascq: Editions Christian, 1993), pg. 415].
He was challenged by the barons on his election as King; one in particular, the Count of Périgord, who raised an army and attacked him after 5 July 987 [Joy Law, Fleur de Lys, The Kings and Queens of France (90 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3PT: Hamish Hamilton Ltd, 1976), pg. 28].
He died on 24 October 996 in "les-Juifs", Prasville, Eure-et-Loire, France. He died, according to Richer, a monk at St. Remigus, "covered in spots [possibly smallpox] at his château in the hands of Jews [probably his doctors]." He had ruled for 9 years, and 4 months [Christian Settipani & Patrick van Kerrebrouck, La Prehistoire des Capetiens 481-987, Premiere partie: Merovingians, Carolingians et Robertiens (Villeneuve d'Ascq: Editions Christian, 1993), pg. 415 and Joy Law, Fleur de Lys, The Kings and Queens of France (90 Great Russell Street, London, WC1B 3PT: Hamish Hamilton Ltd, 1976), pg. 27].

According to the Medieval Lands Index, Hughes had the following children: With Adelaide: 1. GISELA de France ([970][131]-). m (before 987) HUGUES ---, son of --- (-4 Jul [1000]). Hugues Capet King of France separated Abbeville, Ancre and Domart from the Abbaye de Saint-Riquier and gave them to Hugues, who was known as the avoué de Saint-Riquier[133]. These territories became the foundation of the county of Ponthieu.

2. HEDWIGE [Avoie] de France ([969][134]-after 1013). Her brother gave her the towns of Couvin, Fraisne, Nîme, Eve and Bens [all now in Belgium] as her dowry on her marriage. m ([996]) REGINAR IV Comte de Hainaut, son of REGINAR [III] Graf im Maasgau & his wife Adela [von Dachsburg] (after 947-1013).

3. ROBERT de France (Orléans ([27 Mar] 972-Château de Melun 20 Jul 1031, bur église de l'Abbaye royale de Saint-Denis). He was consecrated Associate-King 25 Dec 987, Cathedral of Sainte-Croix d’Orléans. He succeeded his father in 996 as ROBERT II "le Pieux" King of France.

King Hugues had one possible illegitimate son by Mistress (1):

4. [GAUZLIN (-1030). Ademar refers to "abbatem Gauzlenum" being ordained at "sancti Benedicti" by "Rex Rotbertus". The text continues by explaining that he was "nobilissimi Francorum principis filius manzer, a puero in monasterio sancti Benedicti nutritus", specifying that "rex supra scriptus [=Rotbertus]" later installed him as "archiepiscopum Bituricensibus" after the death of Archbishop Dagbert[143]. These oblique references have been interpreted as meaning that the father of Gauzlin was King Hugues "Capet"[144], although this is not beyond doubt. Kerrebrouck also casts doubt on this assumed paternity of Gauzlin[145]. Archbishop of Bourges. Abbé de Fleury, Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire.]

The precise relationship between the following person and the family of the Capetian kings has not been established. It is possible that he was related through the wife of King Hugues Capet.

1. INGO (-29 Jan 1026). Succeeded as abbot of “sancti Petri Vivi” in 1015[146].

These are the events around the time of Hugh Capet's birth:

936: January, Rudolf/Raoul, Duke of Burgundy dies. Hugh refuses the throne of the King of the Franks, supporting the candidacy of Louis d'Outremer IV instead. (Hugh's residence: Laon.)

936: June 19, Louis IV is coroneted King of the Franks at Laon by Artaud, Archbishop of Rheims.

936: July 2, Heinrich I of Saxony, considered to be the father of the Holy Roman Empire (though this name doesn't appear for another 500 years), dies at the family palace in Memleben, Thuringia, of a stroke. His son Otto I becomes Emperor of the Eastern Franks (described 500 years later as the first Holy Roman Emperor). He spends much of his early years putting down rebellions.

936: July 25, Louis IV appoints Hugh the Great as Duke of the Franks. Hugh was also made Comte d'Auxerre around this time (residence still Laon).

936: December 26, Louis IV clarifies that Hugh the Great is his second in command.

937 or 938: Hugh marries Hedwig of Saxony, daughter of the first King of Germany Heinrich I the Fowler of Saxony. Louis IV, in contrast, accepts the fealty of Gilbert of Lorraine/Lotharingia, with whom he promises more autonomy. This triggers eventual war between the East and West Franks, and stress between the Louis IV and his Duke, Hugh.

938 (at least 9 months after their marriage), Hedwig gives birth to their first-born, Beatrice.

939: Hugh Capet likely conceived before the final break between Hugh the Great and Louis IV and resulting military campaigns. (Residency likely Laon at conception, but may not have remained Laon throughout the pregnancy, presuming 940 birth year.)

939: October 2, Gilbert is defeated at the Battle of Andernach, and is drowned while trying to flee across the Rhine. This ends Louis IV's campaign to obtain Lorraine/Lotharingia, and opens his kingdom to attack. Henry I of Bavaria, seeing the writing on the wall, leaves Louis IV's side and over the next two years reconciles with Emperor Otto, and is given Lorraine/Lotharingia. Henry later breaks with Otto and is forced from his new duchy.

940: By this time, Louis IV turns on Hugh the Great (or perhaps the other way around). Louis IV fears that Hugh holds the real power as their interests become opposite to each other. Louis raises an army and attacks Hugh, but is defeated near Rheims. Hugh sides with the Emperor Otto I as he invades from Lorraine to punish Louis. (Residence: maybe Laon, but unclear.)

942: Emperor Otto I advances on the Seine River, and forces Louis IV to cede control of Burgundy. (Residence: uncertain.)

943: Hugh the Great establishes his authority over Burgundy by agreement with Otto I. Emma, Hugh Capet's younger sister, is born around this time. (Residency, likely in Burgundy.)

945: Louis IV is captured by Vikings (Normans), who hand him over to Hugh the Great. Under pressure from the Holy Roman Emperor, Hugh the Great releases King Louis IV, but only on the condition that he receives Laon. (Residency likely at this time Laon.)

Conclusion: It could be that Hugh Capet was born in Laon, but there is nothing that confirms this, and he could have been born in another location (such as somewhere within Eastern Franconia - his father Hugh the Great's ally at the time).


1. Capet is a byname of uncertain meaning distinguishing him from his father Hugh the Great. Folk etymology connects it with cape, other suggested etymologies derive it from terms for chief, mocker or big head. See further fr:Capet (nom). His father's byname is presumed to have been retrospective, Latin: Hugo Magnus, meaning Hugh the Elder, this Hugh being Hugh the Younger, Capet being a 12th century addition; James, p. 183.

Biografía en Español

Uncertain of source (it's not Spanish Wikipedia), Biography of Hugh Capet in Spanish:

Hugo Capeto (nacido hacia el año 940 y muerto en Les Juifs, Chartres, el 24 de octubre de 996) fue rey de Francia entre 987 y 996, inició la Dinastía de los Capetos.

Hijo de Hugo el Grande, duque de Francia, perteneciente a la Casa Robertina. En 960 sucedió a su padre como duque de Francia, conde de Orleans y abad laico de Saint-Martin de Tours, de Marmoutier, de Saint-Germain-des-Prés y de Saint-Denis.

Se casó el año 968 con Adelaida de Aquitania. De este matrimonio nacieron cuatro hijos:

1. Gisela (970 - 1000), casada con Hugo I de Ponthieu;

2. Edwige (969 - 1013), casada hacia el 996 con Rainiero IV de Hainaut y posteriormente con Hugo III de Dasbourg;

Roberto el Piadoso (972 - 1031), rey de Francia con el nombre de Roberto II;

3. Adelaida (973 - 1068).

En el año 978 estuvo al frente de la defensa de la ciudad de París frente a un ataque del emperador alemán Otón II.

Al morir el rey Luis V el Holgazán, último en la línea directa de los carolingios, fue elegido rey de Francia por una asamblea reunida en Senlis. Fue proclamado rey en Noyon y consagrado en Reims el 3 de julio de 987, venciendo la oposición de Carlos, duque de la Baja Lorena, tío de su predecesor. De la frase roi à la chape (por su investidura de abad) es llamado el Capeto.

En el mismo año consagró a su hijo Roberto para asegurarle la sucesión. Sus descendientes reinarían en Francia en forma directa hasta 1848, pues si bien la rama principal de los Capetos se extinguiría en 1328, las dinastías subsiguientes, (Valois, Borbones y Orleans), descienden asimismo por línea paterna directa de Hugo Capeto.

Le gustaba distinguirse de los caballeros de la época llevando una capa de corte peculiar. Por ello se le comenzó a llamar Capeto, que significa "el de la capa". Con el tiempo se convirtió en apellido.

Hugo Capeto (938 — 24 de Outubro de 996) foi rei dos francos de 987 a 996, o fundador da dinastia capetiana. Era filho de Hugo, o Grande, duque dos francos, e de Hedwige, ou Avoia, da Saxónia, filha de Henrique I da Saxónia, rei da Germânia.

Em 987, Hugo Capeto, então duque dos francos, tornou Paris na principal cidade do país e o poderio do ducado estendeu-se gradativamente a toda a França, durante o período de lutas civis que acompanhou as três primeiras Cruzadas. Homem de grandes virtudes administrativas, não granjeou o poder por simpatias, mas sim por astúcia, força e o suborno.

Do seu casamento em 970 com Adelaide da Aquitânia (945-1004), filha de Guilherme III, conde de Poitiers e duque da Aquitânia, nasceram:[10][11]

1.Gisela de França (969 - c. 1000), casada em 970 com Hugo I de Abbeville (970 -?), conde de Ponthieu e Senhor de Abbeville. 2.Edwige de França, ou Hadwige (970-1013), casada em 996 com Ranier IV, conde de Hainaut, e depois com o conde Hugo III de Dasbourg. 3.Roberto II, o Piedoso (972-1031), seu sucessor no trono francês casado por três vezes, a 1ª em 988 com Rosália de Ivrea (937 - 1003), Senhora de Montreuil-sur-Mer, a 2ª em 997 com Berta da Borgonha (970 -?) e a 3 em 1002 com Constança de Arles (c. 986 - Melun, 25 de Julho de 1032), filha de Guilherme I de Arles (953 - 993) e de Adelaide Branca de Anjou (955 - 1026). 4.Adelaide de França (973-1068) É relatada a existência de outros filhos, mas a veracidade dessa descendência é discutível.[5] no entanto é possível referir um filho de uma relação com N da Aquitania:

Biographie en Français

Hugues Capet (né vers 940, mort au lieu-dit « Les Juifs », près de Prasville (Eure-et-Loir) le 24 octobre 996[1]), duc des Francs (960-987), puis roi des Francs (987-996), fut le premier souverain de la dynastie capétienne. Fils de Hugues le Grand et de son épouse Hedwige de Saxe, il est l'héritier des puissants Robertiens, la lignée qui est en compétition pour le pouvoir avec les grandes familles aristocratiques de Francie aux IXe et Xe siècles.

La fin du Xe siècle connaît le début d'une révolution économique et sociale qui allait trouver son apogée vers 1100[2]. Les progrès agricoles, le début des défrichements et l'augmentation des capacités d'échanges entraînée par l'introduction du denier d'argent par les premiers Carolingiens, entraînent une dynamique économique encore timide mais réelle. Dans le même temps, la fin des invasions et la continuité des guerres personnelles entraînent la construction des premiers châteaux privés où peuvent trouver refuge les paysans. En parallèle, la nouvelle élite guerrière, les chevaliers, entre en concurrence avec l'ancienne aristocratie foncière carolingienne. Pour canaliser ces nouveaux venus et pour assurer la protection de leurs biens, l'aristocratie et l'Église soutiennent et exploitent le mouvement de la paix de Dieu. C'est dans ce contexte qu'Hugues Capet peut instaurer la dynastie capétienne.

Il bénéficie tout d'abord de l'œuvre politique de son père qui parvient à contenir les ambitions de Herbert II de Vermandois, puis à en neutraliser la lignée. Cependant, cela ne peut se faire qu'en aidant les Carolingiens, pourtant totalement évincés de la course à la couronne depuis la déchéance de Charles le Simple, à se maintenir. En 960, Hugues Capet hérite du titre de duc des Francs obtenu par son père en échange de la concession de la couronne à Louis IV d'Outremer. Mais, avant de parvenir au pouvoir, il doit se libérer de la tutelle des Ottoniens et éliminer les derniers Carolingiens. C'est avec le soutien de l'Église, et en particulier de l'évêque Adalbéron de Reims et de Gerbert d'Aurillac, tous deux proches de la cour ottonienne, qu'il est enfin élu et sacré roi des Francs en 987.

La relative faiblesse d'Hugues Capet est paradoxalement un atout pour son élection par les autres grandes familles avec le soutien des Ottoniens, car il est peu menaçant aux yeux des grands vassaux et pour les ambitions impériales. Cependant, si effectivement le nouveau roi ne parvient pas à soumettre ses vassaux indisciplinés, son règne voit une modification de la conception du royaume et du roi. Ainsi, Hugues Capet renoue avec l'Église en s'entourant systématiquement des principaux évêques et se rapproche de l'aristocratie en s'alliant avec les grands princes territoriaux (le duc de Normandie ou le comte d'Anjou), ce qui renforce son trône. Cette histoire du premier Capétien nous est surtout connue grâce au moine lettré Richer de Reims.

La Francia occidentalis se trouve définitivement séparée de l'Empire et le premier capétien, comme ses successeurs, met toute son énergie à créer une dynastie continue en consolidant son pouvoir sur son domaine et en y associant son fils Robert le Pieux le jour de Noël de l'an 987[3]. La couronne est effectivement transmise à son fils à sa mort en 996. La dynastie capétienne qu'il fonde ainsi dure plus de huit siècles et donne naissance à des lignées de souverains en Espagne, en Italie, en Hongrie, au Portugal et au Brésil[4].

I have drastically cut this biography, eliminating multiple copies of the Wikipedia article and erroneous information about Hughes de Vermandois. It still isn't perfect, but it is now about 1/5 the size it was originally. I think I got all the sources in the right places. There are still too many kids, as he only had 3 legitimate, one probably illegit., and an another with unknown connections. I'll work on that next.
