Notes:

Louis IV (920 -- September 10, 954), called d'Outremer or Transmarinus, reigned as king of France from 936 to 954, a member of the Carolingian dynasty, the son of Charles III and Eadgifu of England, a daughter of King Edward the Elder. He was a fifth generation descendant of Charlemagne.

He was only two years old when his father was deposed by the nobles, who set up Robert I in his place. When he was only three years old, Robert died and was replaced by Rudolph, duke of Burgundy. Rudolph's ally, a Carolingian himself, Count Herbert II of Vermandois [also a direct ancestor - jmh], took Charles captive by treachery and the young Louis's mother took the boy "over the sea" to the safety of England, hence his nickname.
