    Louis de France, VIII, "le Lion"

  • Notes 
    • King of France (1223-1226).
      Prince Louis, Philip II Augustus' elder son, took part in the battles against the English early in his father's reign (1214-1217). He succeeded his father in 1223 and continued the struggle to recapture English possessions in France (the Poitou and Saintonge areas). Louis VIII then engaged in a crusade against the Cathars (Albigensians) and took control of Languedoc (1226) but fell ill and died on the return journey. In 1225, he granted land to his sons in appanage. Robert received the Artois area, Alphonse the Poitou region and Jean the Anjou and Maine areas (which were later granted to Charles). His eldest son, Louis, whom he had had with Blanche of Castile, succeeded him on the throne.

      Stelde de erfelijkheid van de troonopvolging in. Sedertdien voeren de kinderen van de koning de naam "van Frankrijk" en namen de kinderen van de jongere zonen de naam van het hun toegewezen gebied aan (Anjou, Bourgondie, Bretagne, Orleans, enz.)

      - l'Artois pour Robert
      - l'Anjou et le Maine pour Charles
      - le Poitou et l'Auvergne pour Alphonse.
