||Henry I (Capet) France was a member of aristocracy in Europe.|
Join: European Royals and Aristocrats Project
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.
