Merovingian Dynasty around 450-751

The Merovingians were Franks. Their Frankish rulers had the custom to divide the kingdom among the sons of the ruler when he died. A good idea? Debatable.

The Merovingian Dynasty in History

The rule of the Merovingians was followed by that of the Carolingians.

The most successful of the Carolingians was  Charlemagne. He brought the Frankish realm to its biggest extend.

You can check the growth of Frankish power from 481 to 814 on the map below.
