Notes
General:
Frankish prince. After inheriting Austrasia, Alemannia, Thuringia, and the suzerainty of Bavaria from his father, Carloman fought alone and with his brother to supress external enemies and rebellious subjects. Concerned with reform of the church, he called on St. Boniface for help and in 742 summoned the first Frankish council in nearly 50 years; in 743 the Synod of Estinnes regulated the problem of church lands siezed by Charles Martel and granted out to his vassals. Carloman abandoned the secular life, becoming a monk first at Monte Soratte, later at Monte Cassino in Italy.
