Historical background



Louis, who had been king of Aquitaine since 781, became emperor without issue on the death of his father in 814, the only surviving legitimate son. In the first part of his reign, until the year 829, he continued the work of his father and his coinage. The birth of Charles from a second marriage in 823 with Judith of Bavaria will bring his other sons, Lothair, Pepin and Louis to revolt against him. He was dethroned twice in 830 and 833 and the kingdom remained divided until his death in 840.
