Chlothar I


Chlothar I (l. c. 498-561) was a Merovingian king of the Franks, the second to rule over a unified Frankish kingdom after his father, Clovis I (l. c. 466-511). When Clovis died in 511, his kingdom was divided up between his four sons, but Chlothar reunified it by outliving his brothers and seizing their lands upon their deaths.
