"Byname Loius the Pious, or the Debonair, son of the Frankish ruler
Charlemagne; he was crowned as co-emperor in 813 and became emperor in 814 on
his father's death. Twice deprived of his authority by his sons (Lothair,
Pepin, Louis, and Charles), he recovered it each time (830 and 834), but at
his death the Carolingian empire was in disarray."
