French Monarch. Born the the third and youngest son of Philippe IV of France and Jeanne I of Navarre about 1294. He married Blanche de Bourgogne about 1306. In 1316 he was created count of La Marche. He succeeded his brother, Phillipe V, as King of France and Navarre early in 1322, divorcing his wife that same year after charging her with adultery. He married Marie de Luxembourg a few months later and with her had two daughters. In 1323 he expelled the Jews from France. He created a fiscal crises when he ordered a recast of the realm's coinage, he also put civil offices up for auction; imposed duties on exported merchandise and obtained from the pope a tithe levied on the clergy which he used as his privy purse although he had promised it to fund a crusade. Upon the death of his second wife he married Jeanne d'Evereux in 1325 with whom he had one surviving daughter. He renewed war with England by invading Aquitaine; obtaining the peace of 1327 which gave him a generous land settlement and 50,000 marks. When he died at Vincennes at about 34, the prevailing Salic law barred his daughter from succeeding him, ending the direct line of the Capetian Dynasty. He was succeeded Philippe of Valois. He has been called Charles the Fair or Charles le Bel. (bio by: Iola)
