Map of the Carolingian Empire following its division in 843 by the Treaty of Verdun. At the death of Emperor Louis the Pious (r. 813-840), the Kingdom of the Franks was partitioned and allocated to three of his four sons. West Francia (orange) was given to Charles the Bald (r. 843-877), East Francia (pink) to Louis the German (r. 843-876), and Middle Francia (green) to Lothar I (r. 840-855), who also inherited the imperial title.
