Charles I of Anjou, was a member of the royal Capetian dynasty and the founder of the second House of Anjou. He was the King of Sicily by conquest from 1266, though he had received it as a papal grant in 1262. He was expelled from the island in the aftermath of the Sicilian Vespers of 1282. In the Holy Roman Empire, he was Count of Provence (1246-85) and Forcalquier (1246-48, 1256-85). In France, he was Count of Anjou and Maine (1246-85). In Greece he was Prince of Achaea (1278-85). In 1272, he was proclaimed King of Albania. In 1277 he purchased a claim to the Kingdom of Jerusalem. Carlos_I
