Pippinids vs Arsacids

Message Bookmarked

The Pippinids or Arnulfings are the members of a family of Frankish nobles in the Pippinid dynasty. Their select scions served as Mayor of the Palace, de facto rulers, of the Frankish kingdoms of Neustria and Austrasia that were nominally ruled by the Merovingians.

Why the Arsacid court retroactively chose 247 BC as the first year of the Arsacid era is uncertain. A.D.H. Bivar concludes that this was the year the Seleucids lost control of Parthia to Andragoras, the appointed satrap who rebelled against them. Hence, Arsaces I "backdated his regnal years" to the moment when Seleucid control over Parthia ceased.[14]

Vachagan III the Pious was the last king of Caucasian Albania from the Arsacid Dynasty. He was a brother of Vache II and was restored to throne by Balash. During his reign Church of Caucasian Albania was growing. Vachagan persecuted pagans and opened religious schools in country.

Clovis is the modern conventional French (and thence English) form of the Old Frankish name Chlodowig (*Hlōdowig "famous in battle"), equivalent to the modern forms Louis (French) and Ludwig (German).

that should ensure at least one voter for the pippinids :)

have never truly considered affecting 'Clovis', probably because I read the Saki collection at an early age, featuring a character of that name embroiled in all sorts of impropriety
