!AInfoNew 937 He succeeded his father as king of a reunited Burgundy in 937. In that year the Hungarians made their most destructive attack on Burgundy. The Saracens had been ravaging the Rhone valley for several years. In his book, "The Lost Kingdom of Burgundy", Christpher Cope relates the following event : "Conrad of Burgundy was named "the peaceful" but in 954 he gained victory over the Saracens and Magyars in a coup which may be unique in military history. When he learnt that the forces of both Magyars and Saracens were on the warpath, he sent envoys to tell the Magyars that the Saracens lay in wait for them and that if they would join forces with the Burgundians they would together destroy the Saracens. He then warned the Saracens of the Magyars' approach and similiary promised them his help. Both invading armies were successfully deceived; they engaged each other in battle just as the Burgundian army, with a perfect sense of timing, appeared on the field, and Conrad continued to tell each side that he would shortly come to its assistance. When he judged that the two hostile forces had sufficiently weakened each other, the Burgundians were launched against them and both were brilliantly destroyed". The next year, 955, the Emporer Otto I finaly checked the Magyars and later in Conrad's long reign, in 972, the Saracens were finally driven from Provence by the Clunac abbott, Majolus. This success inagurated an age of peace in Burgundy which brought prosperity and a remarkable outburst of cultural activity.11
