Gender:
Male
Birth:
circa 790¬â€ 
Ponthieu, Somme, Picardy, France
Death:
June 14, 844¬â€ (50-58)¬â€ 
Saint-Riquier, Somme, Picardy, France
Immediate Family:
Son of¬â€ Angilbert "the Saint" de Ponthieu, abbot of Saint-Riquier¬â€ and¬â€ Berta¬â€ 
Husband of¬â€ Wife of Nithard van Ponthieu¬â€ 
Father of¬â€ Helgaud de Montreuil, I¬â€ 
Brother of¬â€ Hardouin de Ponthieu;¬â€ Berthe de Ponthieu;¬â€ Hartnid ...¬â€ and¬â€ Armid¬â€ 

Nithard¬â€ (790-845), a Frankish historian, was the grandson of Charlemagne, by Bertha, a daughter of the great emperor. His father was Angilbert. He appears to have served his cousin, Charles the Bald, on peaceful errands and also on the field of battle. He fought for Charles at Fontenoy in June 841; he died as the result of wounds received whilst fighting for him against the Northmen near Angoul√£eme. The date of his death was probably June 14 or May 15, 844 or 845.
"Nithard's historical work consists of four books on the history of the Carolingian empire under the turbulent sons of the emperor Louis I, especially during the troubled period between 840 and 843. The¬â€ Historiae¬â€ or¬â€ De dissensionibus filiorum Ludovici pii¬â€ (On the Dissensions of the Sons of Louis the Pious) is valuable for the light which it throws upon the causes which led to the disintegration of the Carolingian empire. Although rough in style, partisan in character and sometimes incorrect in detail, the books are the work of a man who had an intimate knowledge of the events which he relates, who possessed a clear and virile mind, and who above all was not a recluse but a man of action. They are dedicated to Charles the Bald, at whose request they were written." [Wikipedia]

Nithard was a Frankish historian and died 844 in the wars against the Normans. Little is known about his early life, but in the quarels between the sons of Louis the Pious he proved a zealous adherent of Charles the Bald, by whose command he went as ambassador to Lothair in 840, though without success. At the battle of Fontenoy, in 841, he fought bravely at the side of Charles, and afterwards wrote, at the request of that prince, the history of the period in order to establish the right of Charles the Bald. This work, which usually bears the title: "De dissensionibus filiorum Ludovici Pii ad annum usque 843, seu Historiarum libri quaattuor 841-843", recites in rather uncouth language the causes of the quarrels and describes, minutely and clearly, the unjust behaviour of Lothair, sometimes a little partially, but with understanding and a clear insight into the conditions. He was the only layman of his time who devoted himself to the writing of a history, and he reported earnestly and truthfully what he himself had seen and heard. It is very probable that he was lay abbot of St. Riquier. His body was buried there, and when it was found, in the eleventh century, Mico, the poet of the abbey, composed a lengthy rhymed epitaph. Nithard's historical work has been published by Migne in "P. L.", CXVI, 45-76.
