Louis VI

Louis VI

In 1108 A.D., a descendant of Hugh Capet took the throne. This new king was Louis VI. Louis VI further strengthened the power and authority of his throne by working to increase the loyalty of the people to himself, rather than to their feudal lords. To do this, Louis VI took lands that had always been owned by nobles and gave them to the common people. He also gave important positions in both clergy and on his royal court to commoners.
