  • Notes 


    • Pepin the Short (714?-768), mayor of the palace of Austrasia and king of the Franks (751-768). Pepin deposed Childeric III, the last king of the Merovingian dynasty, to become the first king of the Carolingian dynasty. When Pope Stephen II (III) was threatened by the Lombards, Pepin led an army that defeated them. He ceded to the pope territory that became the foundation for the Papal States. Pepin enlarged his own kingdom by capturing Aquitaine in southwestern France.
