Strong princes[ edit ] France was a very decentralised state during the Middle Ages. The authority of the king was more religious than administrative. The 11th century in France marked the apogee of princely power at the expense of the king when states like NormandyFlanders or Languedoc enjoyed a local authority comparable to kingdoms in all but name.
The Capetiansas they were descended from the Robertianswere formerly powerful princes themselves who had successfully unseated the weak and unfortunate Carolingian kings.
They were involved in the struggle for power within France as princes, but they also had a religious authority over Roman Catholicism in France as King.

The Normansthe Plantagenetsthe Lusignansthe Hautevillesthe Ramnulfidsand the House of Toulouse successfully carved lands outside France for themselves.
The most important of these conquests for French history was the Norman Conquest of England by William the Conquerorfollowing the Battle of Hastings and immortalised in the Bayeux Tapestrybecause it linked England to France through Normandy.
Although the Normans were now both vassals of the French kings and their equals as kings of England, their zone of political activity remained centered in France. Rise of the monarchy[ edit ] The monarchy overcame the powerful barons over ensuing centuries, and established absolute sovereignty over France in the 16th century.
A number of factors contributed to the rise of the French monarchy. The dynasty established by Hugh Capet continued uninterrupted untiland the laws of primogeniture ensured orderly successions of power.

Thirdly, the Capetians had the support of the Churchwhich favoured a strong central government in France. This alliance with the Church was one of the great enduring legacies of the Capetians. The First Crusade was composed almost entirely of Frankish Princes. As time went on the power of the King was expanded by conquests, seizures and successful feudal political battles.
The loss of other Spanish principalities then followed, as the Spanish marches grew more and more independent. Hugh Capet decided so in order to have his succession secured. His surviving charters imply he relied heavily on the Church to rule France, much like his father did.
Although he lived with a mistress— Bertha of Burgundy —and was excommunicated because of this, he was regarded as a model of piety for monks hence his nickname, Robert the Pious. Under King Philip Ithe kingdom enjoyed a modest recovery during his extraordinarily long reign — His reign also saw the launch of the First Crusade to regain the Holy Landwhich heavily involved his family although he personally did not support the expedition.
