      Eldest son of Hugh the Great, he was a founder of the Capetian House and
      lay abbot of the Abbeys of St. Martin of Tours and of St. Denis. His
      surname "Capet" may derive from his abbot's cape. He was elected king by
      the assembly of Senlis, but he secured the succession for his descendants
      by suspending the feudal right of election. He is buried in front of the
      altar in the Basilica of the Trinity at St. Denis, France. {Born in winter
      of 941 per "Ancestral Roots..." [Balt., 1992] 53-20.}
