Hugo von der Provence, King of Italy 926-945

Grierson/Blackburn 1024, PCGS-graded MS-63

Obverse depicts cross in center with a church on the reverse. Bold details and well centered.

After a brief interregnum, Hugo succeeded Berengar as king of Italy. Surrounded by a local aristocracy not in line with his proposed policies, he appointed his relatives to most positions of influence. He actually accomplished little.
