BIOGRAPHY Son of Charles Martel and Chrodtrud, he inherited the joint right with his brother Carloman to rule the kingdom of the Franks. In 747 he became sole ruler when Carloman retired to the monastery of Monte Casino. In 751 he asked Pope Zacharias to end the nominal rule of the Merovingians and give him sole power, together with the title 'King of the Franks'. The Pope agreed and King Childeric III was placed in a monastery. Saint Boniface anointed Pippin King of The Franks at Soissons. Two years later he saved the next Pope, Stephen II, from the Lombards. The Pope himself again anointed Pippin at the Abbey of St. Denis, together with his two young sons, Charles and Carloman. Pippin was a much more able king than the Merovingian 'Rois faineants' (do nothing kings). The Franks descended on Italy to support the pope, and they defeated Astolfo, King of the Lombards. Pippin was made a senator of Rome though he could neither read nor write. After the pope was attacked again, Pippin again defeated Astolfo and made a gift to the pope of Lombard lands near Rome. This bequest was the beginning of the pope's status as a temporal sovereign. Pippin died at the Abbey of St. Denis in 768. His sons Charles and Carloman divided the Frank domains. Carloman soon died, leaving Charles, as the sole ruler of the kingdom of the Franks, to become the most important ruler ever to have 'the Great' added to his name. Charles The Great, or Carolus Magnus, became better known as Charlemagne.
