Historical background


LOUIS I. THE PIOUS OR DÉBONNAIRE

(25/01/814-20/06/840)

Louis, who was the King of Aquitaine from 781, became emperor without problem to the death of his father in 814, only surviving legitimate son. In the first part of his reign, until the year 829, he continued the work of his father and mint. The birth of Charles's second marriage in 823 Judith of Bavaria will bring his other son, 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.
