  • Notes 
    • King of France (893-923).
      Charles was the posthumous son of Louis II the Stammerer. He was not crowned king in 884 A.D. on the death of his brother Carloman, since the king­dom's noblemen chose Emperor Charles the Fat in his place. He again failed to win the throne in 888 A.D. when the honour went to Count Eudes of Paris who had won distinction during the siege of Paris by the Vikings. Charles III the Simple was finally crowned king in 893 A.D. He then had to fight Eudes but eventually succeeded in signing an agreement with him. It stated that Charles would succeed Eudes after the latter's death, and this was complied with in 898 A.D. Charles III the Simple temporarily annexed Lotharingia to France but was required to grant the Caux area in feu to Rollo, the Viking chieftain, in 9 l l .A.D (Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte) in order to put an end to the Normans' pilla­ging. Charles III the Simple was faced with a revolt on the part of the kingdo­m's leading noblemen in 922 and with the election of Robert, Marquis of Neustria, to the throne of France. Despite his rival's death during the Battle of Soissons, Charles III the Simple was taken prisoner and deposed in 923 A.D.
      He died in 929 in Peronne where he was still being held prisoner.
