Commentary


Monnaie inédite pour l’atelier de Grenoble, ville qui n’était pas recensée parmi les ateliers carolingiens. Monnaie de la plus grande rareté et du plus grand intérêt historique pour la numismatique et l’histoire du Dauphiné. La légende du droit, légèrement dégénérée, au nom de Charles Empereur (CARLVS IMPERATOR), laisse penser que ce denier est légèrement postérieur à l’année 877.

Historical background


CHARLES II THE BALD AND CURRENCY ASSETS TO ITS NAME

(843-06/10/877 and tenth century)

Charles was born in Frankfurt am Main on June 13 823 and is the youngest son of Louis the Pious. Preference that his father gave him his elders leads to many conflicts. He allied himself with his brother Louis the German fight for their elder brother Lothair. The latter was defeated 25 June 841 near Auxerre. In 843 the Treaty of Verdun, Charles and Louis divided the Empire. All countries located west of the Scheldt, the Meuse, the Saone and the Rhone returned to Charles. In 875, he went to Italy where he was crowned emperor by Pope John VIII. After the death of his brother Louis the German 876 occurred on July 28, Charles annexed its territories. Nephews Louis rebelled against the imperial authority, and 8 October 876, Charles was defeated at Andernach. This defeat forced him to recognize the authority and hereditary earldom. He died in Avrieux, Savoie, 6 October 877.
