Map of the former Carolingian Empire in 898 following its collapse in 887 as a result of the deposition of Emperor Charles the Fat (r. 876-887). The kingdoms were claimed by various regional nobles, each of whom contested the imperial title. By 898, West Francia (red) was ruled by Charles the Simple (r. 893-923), East Francia (green) by Emperor Arnulf of Carinthia (r. 887-899), Burgundy (purple) by Rudolf I of Burgundy (r. 888-912), and Provence (orange) by Louis the Blind (r. 887-928). Italy was contested by Lambert II of Spoleto (pink; r. 891-898) And Berengar I of Friuli (teal; r. 888-924). The Papal States (yellow) remained independent.
