Adalberon (archbishop of Reims)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Adalberon, archbishop of Rheims)
- "Crown the Duke. He is most illustrious by his exploits, his nobility, his forces. The throne is not acquired by hereditary right; no one should be raised to it unless distinguished not only for nobility of birth, but for the goodness of his soul."
Capet was elected and crowned at Noyon, 3 July in that year by Adalberon. The part played by Adalberon in bringing down the Carolingians would not be continued by their successors, Charles, Duke of Lower Lorraine or the bastard son, Arnulf.
