Notes about Pepin Martel of Italy King of the Lombards Carloman King of Italy

 

baptized by Pope Hadrian, on which occasion his name Karel was changed to Pippin

He was king (driver and military commander) of Italy within the realm of his father.In 781, Karel visited Italy, officially as a pilgrim, but also to put things in order and bring the country better under Carolingian authority. He appointed his son Karloman (Pepijn) as king on April 15th. He intentionally broke with tradition by making him king of Italy and not from the newly conquered Lombardy, although Karloman settled in the old capital of the Longobarden, Pavia. This appointment was part of Karel's policy to decentralize the administration and military organization of his empire, so that during his absence the empire could also be adequately defended. Karloman was 8 years old when he was appointed and his duties were carried out by important courtiers, such as abbot Adelard van Corbie and duke Erik van Friuli. After the failed uprising of Karloman's half-brother Pepijn with the Bult in 792, it fell into disgrace. Karloman was baptized again by the Pope with the name Pepijn.The most important events during the Pepin regime:791 campaign against the Avars along the Drava793 suppressed a Benevento uprising795-6 war against the Avars. With the help of the Croatian leader Vojnomir he managed to penetrate the area between Tisa and Donau (now Hungary) where the Avarian headquarters, the Ring, was located. It was destroyed. Pepijn returned with so much gold and silver that Einhard claims that this was the most profitable company of the Franks ever.797 campaign against the Slavs on the eastern border799 takes part in the campaign against the SaxonsConquers Corsica on the Moors810 Subjugates Istria and the towns on the Dalmatian coast, fails to conquer VeniceIn 806 Charlemagne divided his empire among his sons in the Divisio regnorum to prevent disagreement among his heirs after his death. He added Bavaria, Carinthia and half of the Kingdom to the existing area of ​​the Italian kingdom. Strangely enough, it was not said what would happen to the imperial title, possibly because there was still disagreement with Byzantium. However, it would all be different.Pepijn died prematurely in 810, after an illness (presumably malaria). With Charlemagne's consent, his bastard son Bernhard succeeded him as King of Italy. Pepijns' older brother, Karel, also died prematurely. The emperor therefore made his third legitimate son Lodewijk his sole heir, including the imperial title. The intention was that Bernhard of Italy - who had therefore been passed as the successor to the imperial title - would serve his uncle as faithfully as Pepijn had served his father, but that quickly became a pious wish.
