BIOGRAPHY Charles was born in Laon in 953, the son of Louis IV, king of France, and Gerberga of Saxony, and younger brother of King Lothar I. He was a sixth generation descendant of Charlemagne. About 975 Charles married Adela, of unknown parentage. They had a number of children of whom two daughters, Gerbera and Ermengarde, would have progeny, and three sons who did not. He may have married a second time, to Bonne, daughter of Godfrey I, count of Verdun. His father probably gave Charles royal powers in Burgundy, but Lothar took them back upon reaching his majority. In 977 Charles accused Lothar's wife Emma of Italy, daughter of Lothar II, king of Italy, of infidelity with Adalberon, bishop of Laon. The council of Sainte-Macre at Fismes (near Reims) exonerated the queen and the bishop, but Charles maintained his claim. He was driven from the kingdom, finding refuge at the court of his cousin Emperor Otto II. Otto promised to crown Charles as soon as his brother Lothar was out of the way, and in May 977 in Thionville, Otto appointed Charles duke of Lower Lorraine. In August 978, Lothar I invaded Germany and captured the imperial capital of Aachen, but he failed to capture either Otto or Charles. In October Otto and Charles in turn invaded France, devastating the land around Reims, Soissons and Laon. In the latter city, the chief seat of the kings of France, Charles was crowned by Theodoric I, bishop of Metz. Lothar fled to Paris and was besieged there. However a relief army led by Hugues Capet forced Otto and Charles to lift the siege on 30 November. Lothar and Capet, the tables turned once more, chased the German king and his liege back to Aachen and retook Laon. As Charles had been a vassal of his brother Lothar, his acts on behalf of Otto were considered treasonous and he was thereafter excluded from the throne. On Lothar's death in 986, the magnates elected his son Louis V, and on the latter's death in 987 they elected Hugues Capet. Thus the House of Capet came to the throne over the disgraced and ignored Charles. Charles' marriage to the lowborn daughter of a vassal of Hugues was championed by his opponents as a cardinal reason to deny him the throne. In order to have a free hand towards France, Charles resigned his duchy to the regency of his eldest son Otto. Charles made war on Hugues, even taking Reims and Laon. However, on Maundy Thursday, 26 March 991, he was captured, through the perfidy of Bishop Adalberon, and with his young second son Louis he was imprisoned by Hugues in Orléans, where he died a short while later, in or before 993. In 1666 the sepulchre of Charles was discovered in the Basilica of Saint-Servais in Maastricht. His skin appears to have been interred there only in 1001, but that is not the date of his death as some scholars assumed.
