Note
BIOGRAPHY Charles was born on 17 September 879, the son of Louis II 'the Stammerer', king of West-France, and Adelaide. He did not know his father, who died before Charles was born. Charles, a member of the Carolingian dynasty, ruled as king of France from 898 to 922. He married Frederuna who died in 917; he then married Eadgifu, the daughter of Edward 'the Elder' of England, on 7 October 919. As a child, Charles was prevented from succeeding to the throne when his half-brother Carloman died in 884, or when Charles 'the Fat', who succeeded Carloman, was deposed in 887. Odo, count of Paris, succeeded Charles 'the Fat'. Charles 'the Simple' became king at the death of Odo in 898. The kingdom of Charles 'the Simple' was almost identical to today's France, but he was obliged to concede what would become known as Normandy to the Norsemen. In 922 some of the barons revolted and crowned Robert I, brother of Odo, as king. In 923, at the battle of Soissons, King Robert was killed, but Charles was also defeated. Rudolf II, duke of Burgundy was elected king, and Charles III was imprisoned. Charles died on 7 October 929, in prison at Péronne and was buried there at the L'Abbaye de St.Fursy. His son with Eadgifu would eventually be crowned King Louis IV of France, and be known as Louis IV 'd'Outremer' as he was raised in England.
