  • Notes 
    • King of France (1060-1108).
      Philip, the elder son of Henri I and Anne of Kiev, was involved in affairs of State in 1059 and became king in 1060 at the age of eight. His uncle, Beaudouin V, Count of Flanders, acted as Regent. During his reign, he was involved in the strug­gles between leading feudal lords. After the Count's death, Philip I launched an expedition to ensure the Flemish succession but was defeated at Kassel in 1071 by Robert the Frisian. In 1087, Philip supported Robert Shorthose against his father, William the Conqueror, Duke of Normandy and King of England, but in vain. He extended the Crown estates by acquiring the Gatinais, Vexin, Corbie and Bourges areas and, during his reign, royal authority began to make its mark. In 1071, Philip I married Bertha of Holland but he repudiated her in 1091 in order to marry Bertrade of Montfort, the wife of Fulk of Anjou, after kidnapping her. He was excommunicated for his actions by Pope Urban II (1094) and the kingdom was struck by a papal interdict (1100). However, Philip ignored the excommunications and continued a life more given to pleasure than to official functions. Eventually, in 1105, he submitted to papal will. Because of his problems with the Pope, Philip I did not take part in the First Crusade (1096-1099) organised in order to recon­quer places in the Holy Land. He died in 1108, having paved the way for his suc­cession by having his son, Louis, crowned in 1100.
