Charles X Clovis, Volume 16 : Roi des Francs PDF de France et de Navarre. Kingdom of the Franks in 486 until the fall of the Second French Empire in 1870, with several interruptions. The Capetians ruled continuously from 987 to 1792 and again from 1814 to 1848.
Clovis s’est imposé dès son accession au trône, il aurait eu seize ans en 481. Il dépasse de la tête les guerriers de sa garde personnelle, les antrustions, qui portent sur l’épaule la bâche d’armes à deux tranchants, la francisque. Les évêques reconnaissent aussitôt le jeune roi. Il s’agit pour Rome de s’appuyer sur un peuple germanique décidé, dans sa volonté d’expansion, à combattre les barbares hérétiques. Une lettre de l’évêque Remi atteste cc choix « politique » qui ne cache pas son but final : la conversion du roi et donc de son peuple et d’abord des antrustions. Cette alliance, suggérée ainsi dès 481, entre l’Eglise catholique et Clovis est sanctifiée à Reims, un 25 décembre 498 ? 499 ? 508 ? lors du baptême du roi franc. On assure que c’est une colombe qui apporte à Remi, au moment du baptême, l’huile sacrée, le saint chrême, dont il doit marquer le corps de Clovis. Mais il n’est pas nécessaire de croire à ce miracle pour évaluer l’importance du règne et du baptême de Clovis. Paris et Reims deviennent les lieux symboliques de ce pays nouveau qui prend ainsi naissance. Un lien particulier s’est noué entre ces deux villes, entre le roi de France et l’Eglise catholique. Cette alliance se perpétuera. Le baptême de Reims confirme à la fois la séparation du spirituel et du temporel, et leur alliance. La France sera fille aînée de l’Eglise et nation souveraine. Il faut accepter cette dualité, au coeur de notre histoire.

Chlothar, fourth and youngest son of Clovis, became king at Soissons. By 558 he had inherited the lands of his older brothers and thus reunited all of the Frankish territories that had been held by his father.

Neustria, centred at Soisson and Paris, Austrasia, centered at Metz, and Burgundy, centered at Orléans. Charibert, Chlothar’s eldest surviving son, became king of the Franks at Paris. He died without issue in 567 and his realm was partitioned between his younger brothers. Tiers de sou de Caribert Ier frappé à Aire.
