Called Charles the Simple, he was the posthumous son of King Louis II. Charles claimed the throne after 893, during the reign of Odo, or Eudes, count of Paris, but was not acknowledged king until 898. His reign was plagued by raids of Scandinavian Vikings, to whom he finally ceded (911) much of what later was called Normandy. Charles was deposed in 922 by his chief vassals and imprisoned in Pronne from 923 until his death. Source: "Charles III (of France)," Microsoft(R) Encarta(R) 98 Encyclopedia.

All rights reserved. ---------- Some genealogies report Charles III as being the son of Louis II and Adelheid of Paris. ---------- Byname CHARLES THE SIMPLE, French CHARLES LE SIMPLE, king of France (893-922), whose authority came to be accepted by Lorraine and who settled the Northmen in Normandy but who became the first Carolingian ruler of the western kingdom to lose his crown. The posthumous son of Louis II the Stammerer, Charles was too young to assume the throne on the death of his half-brother, Carloman, in 884 or that of his cousin, Charles the Fat, in 888. On Jan. 28, 893, however, he was crowned king by Fulk, archbishop of Reims; and, although he renounced his rights after civil war in 897, the death of King Eudes in the following year brought him general recognition as king. Charles was strongly under the influence of Robert, brother of the dead Eudes. It was Robert's victory against the Northmen at Chartres in 911 which paved the way for the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte later that year, by which Charles ceded territory, in the area later known as Normandy, to the Viking leader Rollo and his men; in return, Rollo became a Christian and Charles's vassal. The Normans who had such an impact on Europe in the 11th and 12th centuries were the final product of this settlement. In 911 also, the magnates of Lorraine (Lotharingia) accepted the authority of Charles on the death of the last Carolingian king of the East Franks, Louis the Child. Charles's preoccupation with Lotharingian affairs and councillors alienated the nobles of Neustria, however, and in 922 they elected Robert king. Charles killed Robert in battle in 923 but was soon taken prisoner by Herbert, count of Vermandois, who used him for his own gain against Rudolf, Robert's son-in-law and the new king.
