The name for the Merovingian Dynasty comes from the grandfather of Clovis, King Merovech.

Charlemagne is the Frankish king who was crowned on December 25, 800, as the first Holy Roman Emperor by the pope.

Charlemagne was a king who brought people together by reforming the laws, educational system, and monetary standards of the Holy Roman Empire.

Charles Martel was succeeded as Mayor of the Palace by his son Pepin, often called Pepin the Short.

In 752 A.D., the Pope anointed Pepin the Short as king.
