This list covers Frankish armies from the death of the last effective Merovingian king, Dagobert I, until the final
partition of Charlemagne's empire. After the death of Dagobert the Mayors of the Palace became the effective
rulers. The period covers the victory of Mayor of the Palace Charles Martel over the Arabs at Tours and Poitiers
in 732. His descendants, the Carolingians, took over the throne in 751. Under Charlemagne (768 - 814) the
empire was expanded on all frontiers. His descendants could not keep such a wide area under control and spent
much of their efforts fighting each other for supremacy. 888 saw the final division of the Frankish empire, the
Western and Eastern portions thereafter being covered by separate lists. The option to upgrade Charlemagne's
Household caballarii to regular is based on their being kept permanently embodied, in constant practice and
under close command, and to a lesser extent on the detailed provisions of the capitularies. The few Frankish
horse archers are based on the capitularies' insistance that each armoured horsemen should own a bow, possibly
to be used for hunting or to arm a retainer, and rare artistic depictions. They are armed the same as the other
caballarii, but with the addition of a bow. Before 844, when Charles the Bald ordered that all free Franks who
could afford a horse must ride it to the muster, any or all Kn and Thuringian Cv can always dismount. Horse
archers dismount as Bw (O), Swabians and Bavarians as Bd (O), other Frankish Kn and Thuringian Cv as Sp
(O). By 891, a chronicler was stating that Franks did not even know how to fight on foot! Swabians and
Bavarians, who were said to be unskilled with the lance and poor horsemen, did still prefer to fight on foot, so
can always dismount as Bd (O) thoughout the period covered by this list. Other Kn and Cv can only dismount
after 844 to attack or defend fortifications or attack war wagons. Only one foreign allied contingent can be used.
Aquitaine was only briefly independent, in rebellion from 830 to 838. An Aquitanian C-in-C cannot have any
non-Frankish allies. Frankish fleets were active in the north Sea and Baltic, on the Danube and in the
Mediterranean and Adriatic.
