- King of France (922-923).
Robert, the second son of Robert the Strong and brother of King Eudes, became Marquis of Neustria in 888 A.D. when his brother mounted the throne of France. Robert was initially loyal to King Charles III the Simple and he won fame during the struggle against the Vikings who were defeated in 911 A.D. In 920, however, he rebelled against the king, fomenting a plot with leading noblemen of the kingdom, including Duke Rudolf of Burgundy. In 922 A.D, he was elected king and crowned. During the struggle opposing him to Charles III the Simple, Robert I was killed during a battle near Soissons in 923 A.D. However, his death did not mean victory for the Carolingian pretender. Instead, Robert's son-in-law, Rudolf of Burgundy, succeeded him and Charles III the Simple was imprisoned.
