However, unclear though they were, the succession rules of Aragon and Barcelona at that time were understood to favor all male relatives before any female, (this is how Yolande's uncle, Martin of Aragon, inherited the throne of Aragon). Martin died without surviving issue in 1410, and after two years without a king, the Estates of Aragon by Compromise of Caspe in 1412 elected Ferdinand de Antequera as the next King of Aragon.

Yolande and her sons regarded themselves as heirs of higher claim, and began to use the title of Kings of Aragon. From this "inheritance" forward (Aragon added to other Anjou King titles), Louis and Yolande were called the King and Queen of Four Kingdoms - the four being apparently Sicily, Jerusalem, Cyprus and Aragon; another interpretation has been Naples separate from Sicily, and then probably excluding Cyprus. However, the truth was that Yolande and her family held lands in any of the said kingdoms only for short intervals, and the island of Sicily as well as Cyprus-Jerusalem apparently was never held by them in reality. Yolande of Aragon (1383-1443) was called, from 1410 at the latest, the Queen of Four Kingdoms/La Reine des Quatre Royaumes. ...

Louis's family had been longtime rivals of the Anjou-Durazzo family regarding the kingdom of Naples, but the last heir of that line, Joan II of Naples was childless and approaching old age.
