The King of France is the head of state of the Kingdom of France. The current ruling dynasty of Kings is the Valois Dynasty. Some kings have earned their names in history either because of their great reigns or because of their despicable actions.
Arms and Style of French Sovereigns
The Valois Dynasty is the ruling family of the Kingdom of France, as well as the Duchies of Alençon, Anjou, Burgundy, Orléans, and the County of Angoulême. The House of Valois is a cadet branch of the House of Capet, and rose to prominence and took control of the French throne in 1328. Their title to the throne was based on a precedent in 1316 (popularly known in the English-speaking world as the Salic law), which excluded females (Joan II of Navarre) as well as male descendants through the distaff line (Edward III of England), from the succession to the French throne.
