The Genealogia Aliquorum Regum Francie per quam apparet quantum attinere potest regi Francie rex Navarre is a treatise written by the monk Richard Lescot in 1358 explaining the justifications for the succession of Philippe V of France in 1316 and the Valois succession to the French throne in 1328. Although largely overlooked at the time of writing, the document served as a basis for the revival of the Salic Law in French customary law in the mid-fifteenth century.
