Carloman Mayor of the Palace in Austrasia 1
- Born: abt 0711
- Died: 754 about age 43
Mayor of the palace of Austrasia, it is probable that his wife was a
daughter of Alard. Upon the death of his father in 741, Carloman
succeeded to Austrasia, Alemannia, Thuringia and Bavaria. His brother Pepin (RIN # 570) recieves the other half of the realm and the title of King of Franks, when Carloman suddenly abdicated his lands and became a monk in 747.
