Example text

15. 25 Ebroin then ruled vigorously for several more years until he was in his turn murdered in 680. Although the conflict in these years raged across the different regions of Francia, it was clearly about control of the centre, which meant domination of king and palace, as the source of the power to issue binding commands throughout the kingdom. It was thus vital for a faction to have a king in order to legitimate their claim to power, and it was also necessary to have king in order to raise a large army.

It would be at this point that the Merovingian kings really would be pushed into the background, and used simply for their name. We see a sign of this development in the Passio Leudegarii. Although the author saw power in terms of a ‘right’ which was legally constituted, he also saw God as the ultimate judge of who should hold power. And God judged according to how power was exercised. Both King Childeric and the mayor Ebroin exercised power without justice, and God sanctioned their assassinations.

In this sense, by enabling a balance of power to be re-established, conflict helped to reinforce that legitimation which derived from an acceptance of royal authority that was mediated through the palace, and upheld by magnates in the provinces. On the other hand, it was conflict which had given legitimate power to the victors, and prolonged conflict in the next generation would make victory itself the main justification for the holding of power.
