    History BIOGRAPHY
    Robert was born about 1011, a son of Robert II \'le Pieux\', king of France and Constance de Provence, and brother of Henri I. In 1025, with the death of his eldest brother Hugues, he and Henri rebelled against their father and defeated him, forcing him back to Paris. In 1031, after the death of his father the king, Robert participated in a rebellion against his brother in which he was supported by his mother, Queen Constance. Peace was only achieved when Robert was given Burgundy in 1032.

    About 1033 Robert married Hélie de Sémur-en-Brionnais, and they had five children, of whom two, Henri and Constance, would have progeny. In 1046 he repudiated Hélie and assassinated her brother Joceran, as well as murdering her father Damas I, sire de Sémur, with his own hands. By Ermengarde d\'Anjou, daughter of Foulques III \'Nerra\', comte d\'Anjou, Robert had a daughter Hildegarde who would have progeny.

    Throughout his reign, he was little more than a robber baron who had no control over his own vassals, whose estates he often plundered, especially those of the Church. He seized the income of the diocese of Autun and the wine of the canons of Dijon. He burgled the abbey of St. Germain at Auxerre. In 1055 the bishop of Langres, Hardouin, refused to dedicate the church of Sennecy so as not \'to be exposed to the violence of the duke\'.

    Robert died on 21 March 1076. His first son Hugues had died in battle in his mid-20s, and his second son Henri also predeceased him. Robert was succeeded by Henri\'s eldest son, his grandson Hugues I.  [1
