8 Historical Notes Change to Roman auxilaries. Changes to allies. Tolosan Visigoth This list covers the Visigoths in south-west Gaul, through its extension into Spain, from 469 to 478 AD and its loss of the Gallic provinces to the Franks in 507. Buccellarii were the nobles well-armoured followers. Gardingi comprised minor royal officials, lesser gentry and followers in more tritional Gothic equipment, but now relying more on skirmishing with javelins than on a fierce charge.the initial settlement gave the Visigoths control of the former Roman garrison. These degenerated into city militia. Changes from last version

10 Historical Notes Early Merovingian Frank The name Merovingian derives from that of Merovech, of whom nothing is known except that he was the father of Childeric I, who ruled a tribe of Salian Franks from his capital at Tournai. Childeric was succeeded by his son Clovis I in 481 or 482. Clovis I extended his rule over all the Salian Franks, conquered or annexed the territories of the Ripuarian Franks and the Alemanni, and united nearly all of Gaul except for Burgundy and what is now Provence. At Clovis I s death in 511, his realm was divided among his four sons, Theuderic I, Chlodomir, Childebert I, and Chlotar I. Despite the frequently bloody competition between the brothers, they managed among them to extend Frankish rule over Thuringia in approximately 531 and Burgundy in 534 and to gain sway over, if not possession of, Septimania on the Mediterranean coast, Bavaria, and the lands of the Saxons to the north. By 558 Chlotar I was the last surviving son of Clovis I, and until his death in 561 the Frankish realm was once again united. Changes from last version Change to allies. Reclassified warriors.

In 411 AD, they crossed the Rhine and established a kingdom at Worms. Amidst repeated clashes between the Romans and Huns, the Burgundian kingdom eventually occupied what is today the borderlands between Switzerland, France, and Italy. In 534, the Franks defeated Godomar, the last Burgundian king and took over the country of Burgundy, absorbing the territory into their growing empire. Under the Merovingians, the Kingdom of Burgundy continued to exist. The kingdom re-emerged as a separate state in the 11th century. The list includes Burgundian armies until 613 and Burgundian contingents of Merovingian armies from 614 to 639. Changes from last version Revised allies. Changed minimum and maximums.

The Burgundians, allied with the Franks, tried to take all of Provence for themselves. They were stopped by another barbarian power, the Ostrogoths, led by Theodoric, who entered Provence, lifted the Burgundian siege of Arles, and took Marseille and Avignon in 508. Theodoric was both a barbarian king and an ally of the Byzantine Roman Empire. The rule of the Ostrogoths lasted little more than thirty years, and in 536, the Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian ceded all of Provence to the Merovingian kings. The Merovingians were the first northern European rulers to govern Provence. After 561, Provence was split between two Merovingian kings; Sigebert, the King of Austrasia, ruled Marseille, Aix and Avignon, while Gontran, the King of Burgundy, ruled the eastern part of Provence. The second half of the 6th century was a terrible time for Provence; the region suffered continual conflicts between the two kings, attacks by Lombard and Saxon raiders, and epidemics of plague and other diseases. Irrigation works built by the Romans fell into ruins and the fields which the Romans had drained in the Rhone Valley turned back into marshes. Roman buildings and aqueducts were not maintained. Populations left the cities and moved to fortified villages on the hilltops. This list includes Provencal contingents in Visigothic and Burgundian armies from 496 as well as Provencal contingents in Merovingian armies from 535 to 639 AD. UG Size

Mentioned as still pagan allies of the Christian Franks, the Alemanni were gradually Christianized during the 7th century. The Pactus Alamannorum is a record of their customary law during this period. Until the 8th century, Frankish suzerainty over Swabia was mostly nominal. But after an uprising by Theudebald, Duke of Alamannia, Carloman executed the Alamannic nobility and installed Frankish dukes. During the later and weaker years of the Carolingian Empire the Alemannic counts became almost independent, and a struggle for supremacy took place between them and the Bishopric of Constance. The chief family in Alamannia was that of the counts of Raetia Curiensis, who were sometimes called margraves, and one of whom, Burchard II, established the Duchy of Swabia, which was recognized by Henry the Fowler in 919 and became a stem duchy of the Holy Roman Empire This list covers the period of Swabian Dukes under Frankish suzerainty.

15 Historical Notes Austrasia This list covers the Merovingian heartland split into Austrasia and Neustria after 561, Austrasia being the direct heir of the former central authority. Most external wars were waged by Austrasian armies, notably in Italy and against the Avars. The last Merovingian king being Dagobert,eldest son of Chlothar II. Chlothar had reigned alone over all the Franks since 613. In 623, Chlothar was forced to make Dagobert king of Austrasia by the nobility of that region, who wanted a king of their own. When Chlothar granted Austrasia to Dagobert, he initially excluded Alsace, the Vosges, and the Ardennes, but shortly thereafter the Austrasian nobility forced him to concede these regions to Dagobert. The rule of a Frank from the Austrasian heartland tied Alsace more closely to the Austrasian court. Dagobert created a new duchy (the later Duchy of Alsace) in southwest Austrasia to guard the region from Burgundian or Alamannic encroachments and ambitions. Changes from last version Reclassified noble cavalry. Revised allied contingents.

Merovingian Neustria stretched from the Loire to the Meuse. Neustria was predominantly Gallo-Roman in population, and the form of Latin spoken there, affected by Celtic and Germanic influences, came to be called Langue d oil, the ancestor of modern French. This list covers Neustrian armies within the Merovingian Frankish kingdom. UG Size

The large contingent of Celtic Britons amongst the population may have included the descendents of auxlaries from Britain stationed in Amorica in the late 4th century and inhabitants fleeing the later Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain. During the 9th century the Bretons resisted incorporation into the Frankish Carolingian Empire. The first unified Duchy of Brittany was founded by Nominoe. With regular assistance from the Vikings the Bretons successfully resisted the Franks. Changes from last version None.

19 Historical Notes Later Merovingian Frank Overall Frankish unity was again achieved in 613 AD, when Chlotar II, son of Chilperic I and king of Neustria, inherited the Austrasia and Burgundy. On the death of Chlotar s son Dagobert I in 639, the realm was divided yet again, but by that time the kings of the two regions, Neustria and Burgundy on the one hand and Austrasia on the other, had been forced to yield much of their power to household officials known as mayors of the palace. The later Merovingian kings were little more than puppets and were enthroned and deposed at will by powerful mayors of the palace. The last Merovingian, Childeric III, was deposed in 750 by Pippin III the Short. Changes from last version Warriors now short spear. Added Thuringian and Swabian cavalry.

23 Historical Notes Gallia Aquitania Gallia Aquitania fell under Visigothic rule in the 5th century AD. It was conquered by the Franks under Clovis I in 507, as a result of the Battle of Vouillé. During the 6th and early 7th century, it was under direct rule of Frankish kings, divided between the realms of Childebert II and Guntram in the Treaty of Andelot of 587. Under Chlothar II, Aquitaine was again integral part of Francia, but after Chlothar's death in 628, his heir Dagobert I granted a subkingdom in southern Aquitaine to his younger brother Charibert II. This subkingdom, consisting of Gascony and the southern fringe of Aquitaine proper, is conventionally known as "Aquitaine" and forms the historical basis for the later duchy. Charibert campaigned successfully against the Basques, but after his death in 632, they revolted again, in 635 subdued by an army sent by Dagobert (who was at the same time forced to deal with a rebellion in Brittany). This list provides Aquitanian contingents in Merovingian Frankish armies from 507 to 639 AD. It also includes the separate sub-kingdom of Aquitania from 628 to 632 AD.

25 Historical Notes Charles Martel Frank Charles Martel (from the Latin Carolus Martellus) was a Frankish statesman and military leader who as Duke and Prince of the Franks and Mayor of the Palace, was de facto ruler of Francia from 718 AD until his death. He defeated the Moors at the Battle of Tours in 732, considered a landmark battle that marked the high tide of the Muslim advance into Europe.

Historical Notes The Carolingian Dynasty was a dynasty of rulers who began as Mayors of the Palace and eventually became kings of the Franks. It is perhaps most noteworthy as the dynasty which resurrected the idea of a Western Roman Empire. The Carolingians succeeded the Merovingian Dynasty. This list covers Frankish armies from the death of Charles Martel, until the final partition of Charlemagne's empire. Separate lists exist for Charles Martel and Charlemagne. The name Carolingian itself comes from Charles Martel (from the Latin Carolus Martellus). The dynasty's most prominent member is Charlemagne. The last Carolingian emperor died in 899 AD.

Historical Notes The Duchy of Normandy, which began in 911 AD as a fiefdom, was established by the treaty of Saint-Clair-sur-Epte between King Charles III of West Francia and the famed Viking ruler Rollo, and was situated in the former Frankish kingdom of Neustria. The Normans thereafteropted the growing feudal doctrines of the rest of France, and worked them into a functional hierarchical system. Theyopted and developed the style of fighting on horseback with a lance that developed into the Medieval knight. Shortage of land led bands of Normans to offer their services as mercenaries and establish a kingdom in Southern Italy.
