Storyboard Text

  • Successful Monarchs in France
  • Hugh Capet
  • Philip Augustus
  • Unlike William the Conqueror in England, monarchs in France did not rule over a unified kingdom. The successors to Charlemagne had little power over a patchwork pf French territories ruled by great feudal nobles.
  • Louis IX
  • Hugh inherited vast estates in the region of Paris and Oreans, extending in some places south of Loire River. Hugh then became one of the most powerful vassals in the kingdom and a serious danger. He was elected in 987 by the assembly of Frankish magnates.
  • Philip IV
  • Philip strengthened royal governments in many ways, he granted charters to many new towns, organized a standing army, and introduced a new national tax. Philip became one of the most powerful ruler in Europe before his death.
  • Crusade against Albigensians
  • The most admired French ruler. A deeply religious man, and he had pursued religious goals that were acceptable to Christians. He had improved royal government, expanded royal courts, outlaws private wars, and ended serfdom. By his death, 1270 France became an efficient centralized monarchy.
  • Ruthlessly extended royal power, raising tax even more, and whoever did not payed, will be arrested. Philip IV sent troops to seize Boniface.
  • a dualist religious movement in southern France that the Roman Catholic Church had branded heretical. The war pitted the nobility of staunchly Catholic northern France against that of the south, where the Cathari were tolerated and even enjoyed the support of the nobles.
