As the great-grandchild of King Charles II of Naples, he was, even though a cousin to Queen Joan I, also adopted by her as a child. Joan I was infatuated with Charles of Durazzo as long as she lived. However, she was never able (much to her displeasure) to succeed in developing a romance or a relationship with him. In 1369 King Charles III married Margherita of Durazzo but was later assassinated at Visegrád (Hungary) on February 24, 1386 (in a plot arranged by Elisabeth, widow of King Lajos I of Hungary) and was laid to rest in Belgrade, the capital of both Serbia and Yugoslavia. Lancelot (son to King Charles III) succeeded the throne of Naples.
