    BIOGRAPHY: Richard I was also known as Richard The Fearless or (in French) Richard Sans Peur. He was the duke of Normandy from 942 to 996 and the son of William I Longsword. Louis IV of France took the boy-duke into his protective custody, apparently intent upon reuniting Normandy to the crown's domains; but in 945 Louis was captured by the Normans, and Richard was returned to his people. Richard withstood further Carolingian attempts to subdue his duchy and, in 987, was instrumental in securing the French crown for his brother-in-law, the Robertian Hugh Capet. Richard I.
