The New Columbia Encyclopedia, 1975, p1284, Hugh Capet: "He was the son of Hugh the Great, to whose vast territories he succeeded in 956."
p1285, Hugh the Great: "Died956, French Duke,; son of King Robert I and father of Hugh Capet. Excluded from the succession on his father's death by his brother-in-law Raoul, he supported the candidacy of Louis IV, the Carolingian heir, after Raoul's death (936). Hugh hoped to rule through this weak king who had been raised in England. Louis IV attempted to increase his strength, however, and his reign was marked by warfare between king and vassal, in which Hugh, excommunicated (948) at the insistence of Louis,was forced to submit (950). Although Hugh never held the title of king, his vast possessions made him the virtual ruler of France."

The Story of Civilization, Will Durant, Vol IV, The Age of Faith, Bk IV, The Dark Ages, Ch XIX, The Decline ofthe West, Sec III, France, p475: "When the last Carolingian king Louis V died without issue (987), the nobles and prelates of France sought leadership in some other line than the Carolingian. They found it in the descendants of a marquess of Neustria significantly named Robert the Strong (Died 866)...A grandson, Hugh the Great (Died 956), had acquired by purchase or war almost all the region between Normandy, the Seine, and the Loire as his feudal realm, and had wielded more wealthand power than the kings..."
