Monarchs of France

Can you name all the French monarchs? Notes: Disputed claims (e.g. Napoleon II, Louis XIX, Henry V, etc) are not included with the exception of Henry VI of England (II of France) who was the de jure King of France. Only Merovingian kings that ruled over all Frankish territories are included. The Merovingian junior kings of Austrasia are therefore also not included.

Usually the Merovingian kings are not considered "monarchs of France", because they ruled before the Treaty of Verdun and most of them only controlled a fraction of the territory (Austria, Neustria, Burgundy, etc.).

But if they are to be included, at least Merovech and Childeric should be left out. They only ruled a small fraction of Gaul, and it was only Clovis who unified the Franks under his rule.
