  • Notes 
    • King of France; King of Aquitaine; King of Neustria. Also known as Charles "Le Chauve"; Karolus Calvus; Karl "der Kahle".

      "According to the Annals of St-Bertin, Charles was hastily buried at the abbey of Nantua, Burgundy because the bearers were unable to withstand the stench of his decaying body. He was to have been buried in the Basilique Saint-Denis and may have been transferred there later. It was recorded that there was a memorial brass there that was melted down at the Revolution."
