Murphysboro Centuries, 7th secular


Visigothic kings continued to rule, but few, if any, of them are considered important


Dagobert, 629-639
- son of Lothair II, who united all of the Frankish kingdoms under his own rule - Dagobert was the last strong ruler of the Merovingians (descendants of Clovis) - his descendants were nonentities, and another position, the “mayor of the palace,” became more and more powerful
- his great advisers were Bishop Arnulf of Metz and Pepin I, the “mayor” of Austrasia
