RAOUL

(13/07/923-15/01/936)

Raoul is the son of Richard the Justiciar, Duke of Burgundy. He married Emma, ​​sister of Hugh the Great, daughter of Robert de France. On the death of Robert I of France at the Battle of Soissons in 923, his son Raoul was elected king while Charles the Simple is arrested and removed. He must face the rise of the Normans, whose king, Rollo, received Normandy to the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte in 911. Raoul has to face the rise of William Longsword, Duke of Normandy, and Hugh, Count of Vermandois. He died in 936, childless.
