He belongs to the Carolingian dynasty. Son of Pepin the Short and Bertrade of Laon, he was king of the Franks from 768, became by conquest king of the Lombards in 774 and was crowned emperor in Rome by Pope Leo III on December 24 or 25, 800, raising a dignity that had disappeared in the West since the deposition, three centuries earlier, of Romulus Augustus in 476.
