About Hugues, 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].
