Notes:

Charles III (September 17, 879 -- October 7, 929), called the Simple, was a member of the Carolingian dynasty who ruled as King of France (or Western Francia) from 898 to his death.

The posthumous son of King Louis the Stammerer and Adelaide, Charles married Frederonne who died in 917 and he then married Eadgifu, the daughter of Edward the Elder of England, on October 7, 919.

. . . In 922 some of the barons (including Herbert II of Vermandois [also a direct ancestor - jmh]) revolted and crowned Robert I, [also a direct ancestor - jmh] brother of Odo, king. In 923, at the battle of Soissons, King Robert was killed, but Charles was also defeated. Rudolph, Duke of Burgundy was elected king, and Charles was imprisoned.
