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. The Valois descended from Charles, Count of Valois (1270–1325), the third son of King Philip III of France (reigned 1270–1285). 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. Junior members of the family founded cadet branches in Alençon, Anjou, Burgundy and Orléans.
