  • Notes 
    • King of the Franks (743-751).
      Childeric, the son of Chilperic II, entered holy orders but became King of the Franks in 743 A.D. after the throne had been left vacant for six years. He was placed on the throne by Pepin the Short and Carloman, both of them Mayors of the Palace and both Charles Martel's sons and successors. Childeric was the last Merovingian king. He was deposed by Pepin the Short in 751 A.D. and was imprisoned, on Pepin's orders, in Saint-Bertin Abbey where he died a few years later. Meanwhile, Pepin ruled in his place. Childeric's son, Theodoric, was imprisoned in Fontenelle Abbey. This marked the end of the Merovingian dynasty.
