As Charlemagne aged, he realized he had to make a provision for the
division of his empire among his sons, a Frankish custom. From
Charlemagne's Divisio Regnorum, promulgated in 806:
. "So as not to leave my sons a confused and unsettled matter of dispute
and contention as regards the status of my entire kingdom, I have divided
the whole body of the realm into three portions; the portion that each of
them is to guard and rule, I have caused to be described and designated. I
have done this so that each may be content with his portion in accord with
my ruling. and so that each may strive to defend the borders of his
kingdom which face foreign peoples and maintain peace and charity with his
brothers." In this division, Louis received Aquitaine, his brother Pippin
received Italy and the other brother Charles Francia. Pippin died in 810 and
Charles in 811, before Charlemagne."
Jim Fina makes some very insightful remarks regarding the disposition of
. "While no major sources say he died childless, most do not give any
information on his children. This in turn may lead some to conclude he died
childless, but lack of information about someone is not proof he or she
didn't exist. One thought is that it may be that Charles's son Roland was
illegitimate, which would certainly explain why he didn't inherit their father's
share of the empire. We know that when Charles's brother Pepin died the
year before, Pepin's titles, lands, and honors devolved on his son Bernard.
But this goes to another level if Tompsett is correct, and the mother of
Roland was in fact, Julianna, Charlemagne's grandniece. These two couldn't
marry because such a marriage would have fallen within the prohibited
degrees of consanguinity (see the law of Theodosius which forbade [c.384]
the marriage of cousins; also canon [c. 16, C. 55, q. 2], outlined in the
letter of Gregory III , forbidding marriage among the Franks to the
seventh degree of consanguinity). So if such a consanguineous union had
taken place, and their were children of the marriage, I doubt it would be
discussed at court, much less written about! Charlemagne had nearly as
many illegitimate children as legitimate, and his wanting to keep his
daughters near him and so unmarried accounted for at least one out of
wedlock child as well. Certainly his eldest son Charles having an illegitimate
child (or children) wouldn't have been considered unusual in this family. But
Charles having an illegitimate child by his cousin may have embarrassed
even the Holy Roman Emperor himself!
. Interesting, that Charlemagne's biographer, Einhard The Frank (The Life
of Charlemagne, Translated by Lewis Thorpe, The Folio Society, London,
MCMLXX), mentions Charles 'the Younger,' but does not say he died childless
or that that his line ended. Also interesting that Charles 'the Younger' was
not made a King until the Divisio Regnorum in 806 (Tompsett says he was
crowned in 790), whereas his two younger brothers had been crowned in
781. For some reason or other, Charles was obviously not the favorite son.
Yet it gets more curious, after he finally was elevated to a kingdom, it was
to inherit the heartland of the Frankish empire. Charles, however, never
ruled. He died in 811, one of three children Charlemagne lost during his
lifetime according to Einhard, who also commented on how hard these
tragedies affected the Emperor.
. An extremely interesting comment is where Einhard wrote of
Charlemagne's mother, "living long enough to see three of her grandsons
and as many granddaughters in her son's house." She died 12 July 783, and
since none of his daughters married while Charlemagne was alive (Rotrude
had an illegitimate son, Lewis, Abbot of St. Denis, although we don't know if
he was born prior to his grandmother's death) that only leaves his
sons--two of which, Pepin and Louis did not have grandsons until after her
death. At any rate, it certainly leaves room for Charles to have had a son
(or two, or even three) prior to his grandmother's death.
. Since Einhard wrote the Life of Charlemagne under commission of Louis I
'the Pious,' Charles, his older brother and already deceased, got very little
mention in the book. Certainly there had to be a great deal more to the
story than Einhard wrote, but at the same time court politics certainly
would have dictated what he could and couldn't say. Since most, if not all,
later historians relied on Einhard's work for details of this family, and he
provides almost no information on the eldest son Charles, these historians
either had little to say themselves, or were led to make conclusions--such
as he died childless--when there is no proof of this."
