About Hugues de France, roi associé de France

The Historia Francorum names (in order) "Hugonem qui cognominatus est Magnus, Henricum, Robertum, Odonem" as the four sons of King Robert and Constance[216]. He was consecrated associate-king 9 Jun 1017, at Compiègne, church of the Abbaye de Saint-Corneille, when he was "barely ten years old" according to Rodolfus Glaber[217]. He rebelled against his father claiming the full authority of his position as associate-king, but later submitted[218]. The necrology of the abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés records the death "V Kal Sep" of "Hugo iuvenis rex Francorum"[219]. The necrology of Argenteuil Priory records the death "V Kal Sep" of "Hugo iuvenis rex"[220]. Rodolfus Glaber records his place of burial[221].
