      Robert did not claim the crown on his brother's death in 898, but recognized the Carolingian king, Charles III; Robert continued to defend northern France from Norman attacks as "duke of the Franks"; about 921 he gathered support for his claim, and
      drove Charles into Lorraine; 29 June 922 he was crowned at Rheims and the next year faced Charles' attempt to oust him, during which "in a stubborn and sanguinary battle near Soissons, Robert was killed, according to one tradition, in single combat
      with his rival." {-Encyclopedia Britannica, 1956 Ed., 19:346} Robert's daughter, Emma, m. Raoul of Burgundy who reigned 923-936.
