Commentary


Les monnaies de cuivre sont rares dans le monnayage mérovingien. Les seules vraiment bien classées sont celles de Marseille, avec un nom de roi.
Notre exemplaire uniface correspond aux monnaies reprises dans le Belfort sous les numéros 5453-5460 attribués à Childebert Ier (511-558), mais aussi à Théodebert Ier (534-548) pour le n° 5462 ou encore Dagobert III (711-715) pour les n° 5504-5506, avec ce même chrisme mais dans un listel plutôt que dans une guirlande végétale.

Historical background


CURRENCY Merovingian - UNITED FRANC - I CHILDEBERT

(511-558)

Childebert is the son of Clovis and Clothilde. In 511, after the death of his father, the kingdom was divided between him and his three brothers, Thierry and Clodomir Clothaire. Childebert inherited land located between the Seine and the Loire (Paris, Chartres, Le Mans). In 526, after the death of Clodomir, Childebert and Clotaire slaughtered their nephews to seize his inheritance. In 534, Childebert and Clothaire united and defeated the Burgundians near Autun. In 558, Childebert died childless and his dominions were recovered by Clothaire.
