  • Notes 
    • He likewise attained fame for his diplomacy and military prowess which, as it turned out, were more astute abroad than at home. He served as an Admiral of France, in which tenure one of his better-known exploits was a raid of Southampton in 1339. He fought with distinction at the Battle of Crécy but was driven from Monaco by the Doge of Genoa. Before his death in 1357, Charles fathered several children, including Ranier II, his heir; it would fall to Charles' grandsons to retake Monaco.
