Notes: Robert, King of Arles and Naples, Count of Provence, and lord of much else besides, is the scion of the great House of Anjou, descdended from Charles, younger brother of Louis IX of France (better known as St. Louis), who was invested with Anjou in 1246, acquired Arles a few years later and, in 1266, was granted Naples by the Pope (provided he could conquer it from the heirs of Frederick II von Hohenstauffen, the great German Emperor). King Robert, grandson of Charles, inherited his father's estates and titles in 1309 (an elder brother inherited their mother's claim to Hungary, and another refused the throne). King Robert's heir, for Naples and Provence, Princess Giovanna of Naples (600), is his granddaughter, a charming child of ten, who is "married" to her slightly younger second cousin Andrea (6194), prince of Hungary and Calabria. The succession for the Crown of Arles and his other estates is unclear, as the Princess is disqualified by the Lex Salica.
