The early dynasty

The distant origins of this family are speculative yet seem to originate in the Rhine Valley, east of modern-day France. Cheribert, a nobleman in Neustria is the earliest recorded ancestor of the family, dating before 636. Five generations pass between Cheribert and the next descendant of note, Rutpert I, who became a count in the Upper Rhine Valley and in Wormgau. Four more generations pass until Robert the Strong appears as a count in Paris, Anjou, Blois, Tours, Auxerre, and Nevers. From this point onward, a certain peerage can be established.

The Capet dynasty unofficially begins with King Eudes and King Robert I of France (both possible maternal grandsons of Louis the Pious), both sons of Robert the Strong, who ruled during the Carolingian era. The family became Counts of Paris under Eudes and Dukes of the Franks under Robert, possessing most of the ancient province of Neustria.

Ultimately, Carolingian France fell following the death of Louis V.

Origin of the name

The name Capet derives from French, meaning 'wearing a cape,' because of Hugh Capet's habit of cape-wearing.


Capets through history

Over the course of the preceding centuries, Capetians spread throughout Europe, ruling every form of provincial unit from kingdoms to manors. Besides being the most numerous royal family in Europe, it also is one of the most incestual, especially in the Spanish Monarchy. Salic Law, reestablished during the Hundred Years' War from an ancient Salic Frank tradition, caused the French monarchy to permit only direct male descendants of Hugh to succeed to the throne of France. This did not affect monarchies not under that law such as Portugal, Spain, Navarre, and various smaller duchies and counties. Therefore, many royal families appear and disappear in the French succession or become cadet branches upon marriage. A complete list of the senior-most line of Capetians is available here.

Capet - LoveToKnow 1911 (904 words)
CAPET, the name of a family to which, for nearly nine centuries, the kings of France, and many of the rulers of the most powerful fiefs in that country, belonged, and which mingled with several of the other royal races of Europe.
The real founder of the house, however, was Robert the Strong, who received from Charles the Bald, king of the Franks, the countships of Anjou and Blois, and who is sometimes called duke, as he exercised some military authority in the district between the Seine and the Loire.
This house merged in that of Valois in 1383, by the marriage of Margaret, daughter of Louis, count of Artois, with Philip the Bold, duke of Burgundy.
