Historical background


CHAMPAGNE - Meaux AND TROY - ANONYMOUS

(Tenth century - XI century)

This denier may be struck under the rule of the house of Blois. Eudes II (1019-1037), grand-son of Thibaut and the Trickster who succeeded Stephen I of Vermandois (993-1019), already had much of the Champagne and was also Count of Blois and Chartres. His family was one of the most powerful of the Frankish feudalism, often open struggle against the rising power Capetian.
