In the Divine Comedy, the first person to whom Dante speaks on the Fifth Cornice identifies himself as "Ugo Ciappetta" (Hugh Capet), but from the context of the soul's remarks it is clear that Dante is being addressed by Hugh the Great, rather than his son, now commonly referred to as Hugh Capet. At least that's Dorothy L. Sayers's interpretation, and mine from reading her translation, not knowing Italian. Ellsworth 20:50, 15 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Le Hête, Les Capétiens (1987) gives Hugh a first wife (married c.914) named Judith, father not known but mother was Rochilde, afterward Abbess of Chelles. Judith died childless in 925. Anyone know anything further about this? Le Hête is usually very accurate. --Michael K. Smith 01:56, 12 April 2006 (UTC)
I’ve been reading several pages on wiki and external sources and I’m just curious whether it should be Hugh the Great or his son Hugh Capet that should be considered the founder of the Capetians dynasty. If I’m not wrong the term “Capet” was used to refer to both old Hugh (Hugh the Great) and young Hugh (Hugh Capet). So if that’s the case, why do some consider young Hugh/Hugh Capet founder of the Capetian line instead of old Hugh his father?
Original correct name had been "Hugo Magnus", later French "Hugues le Grand". Note: "Hugh" is only a degraded version of the original Frankish name (root: *xuʒiz, xuʒuz = hugi-z). Italian "Ugo" and German "Hugo" are closer to the original pronunciation. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 15:55, 14 November 2020 (UTC)
