CHALON-SUR-SAÔNE (CABILONNUM) - Saône-et-Loire
The Burgundian kingdom was annexed to the Frankish kingdom after the victory of Autun in 534. Burgundy has an independent monarch until 613 at the death of Thierry II. After the assassination of Sigebert II in 613 by Clotaire II, Burgundy was incorporated into the kingdom of Neustria. Saint-Léger, bishop of Autun (616-678), was mayor of the Palace. The royal government is ensured by the palace which is more an institution than a place. There are three capitals: Paris (Neustria), Metz (Austrasia) and Chalon-sur-Saône (Burgundy). There is still a palace that continues to function after Clotaire II restored unity. The palace is a symbol of the autonomy of the kingdom. Clotaire II governs from Paris but there is still a palace in Metz and Chalon. The gold coinage of Chalon-sur-Saône was certainly the most abundant of the Merovingian period..
