Hugh Capet is the namesake of the French Capetian dynasty, the longest lasting one in French history, with an unbroken line of kings, from 987 to 1328. His descendants have been traced, even in America. It may be difficult to believe, but the records are there.
The fourth Capetian king of France, he was born in 1052 or 1053 and began his reign as a minor in 1059 (or 1060) until his death in 1108. He came of age when the William the Conqueror was strong, so Philip’s reign was overshadowed.
