Historical background


RUDOLPH

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

Raoul is the son of Richard le Justicier, Duke of Burgundy. He married Emma, sister of Hugh the Great, daughter of Robert of France. On the death of Robert I of France at the Battle of Soissons in 923, his son-in-law Raoul was elected king while Charles III the Simple was arrested and dismissed. He must face the rise of the Normans whose king, Rollo, received Normandy at the Treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte in 911. Raoul must face the rise in power of Guillaume Longue Epée, Duke of Normandy, and Hugh, Count of Vermandois. He died in 936, without posterity.
