The Capetian dynasty and the centralization of France

The Capetian Dynasty replaced the Carolingian rulers in France. They ruled from 987 to 1328. It was founded by Hugh Capet. The French monarchy developed greatly under Capetian rulers. They extended the feudal system and further expanded their territory through marriage alliances. The Capetian kings also worked at establishing a bureaucracy through specialization. Feudal monarchy was spread from France to Britain in 1066 by William the Conqueror. In France the feudal monarchy established centralization. The king began taxing the church, minting money, and raising troops.
