Henry I (Capet) France is a member of the House of Capet.
Henry I (of France) (circa 1008-60), king of France (1031-60), son of King Robert II and grandson of Hugh Capet, founder of the Capetian dynasty. From the beginning of his reign he was occupied with putting down rebellions led by members of his family and other French nobles. Between 1035 and 1047 he assisted his nephew William, duke of Normandy, later William the Conqueror, king of England, in establishing William's authority over rebellious Norman nobles. Henry later grew jealous of William's power and waged unsuccessful war against him in 1054 and 1058. Henry was succeeded by his son Philip I.

Marriages and children
Henry was betrothed to Mathilde of Germany, the daughter of Emperor Konrad II, when she was about 6, but she died the following year, still unmarried at 7.
Henry then promptly married another German girl, also called Mathilde, but slightly older, about 8 or 9. She died 10 years later, soon after the death of their only child. She was a member of the complex Imperial family, but a description of exactly where she fitted in seems to have defeated the explanatory powers of the chroniclers.
This time Henry didn't rush to remarry; 7 years passed before he married a 15-year-old Russian princess. Their fourth and last child was born 6 years later.
