Hugh Capet
Birth: 938
Death: Oct. 14, 996

French Monarch. He was born in Paris, Isle De, France in 938. Founder of the third Frankish royal dynasty (the Capetians), which ruled France until 1328. Son of Hugh the Great, whom he succeeded as Duke of the Franks in 956, he was elected king and crowned at Noyon (987). His 40 years in power were marked by constant political intrigue and struggle, both among the feudal aristocracy and with his Carolingian rivals, but his position was invariably saved by the disunity of his enemies. (bio by: Erik Lander)
