Mayor of the Palace/Prince of the Franks
Frankish prince, son of Charles Martel and brother of Pepin III the Short. After inheriting Austrasia, Alemannia, Thuringia, and the suzerainty of Bavaria from his father, Carloman fought alone and with his brother to suppress external enemies and rebellious subjects. Concerned with reform of the church, he called on St. Boniface for help and in 742 summoned the first Frankish council in nearly 50 years; in 743 the Synod of Estinnes regulated the problem of church lands seized by Charles Martel and granted out to his vassals. Carloman abandoned the secular life, becoming a monk first at Monte Soratte, later at Monte Cassino, in Italy. Copyright © 1994-2001 Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.
Carloman, "ruled over that part of the Frankish realm that corresponded with present day Germany (Austrasia). He was part of the family that later became the Carolingian dynasty, but this did not serve as his name during his lifetime. There is no information on where he was born - even tracing the movements of his father, Charles Martel, does not produce many hints about this. - Ben M. Angel
