Ancient Franks, Merovingians, Carolingians And The Lombards

The Germanic tribes achieved conquest over a mix of people, including the Gauls, the Bretons, the Belges, and the Gascons. The Kingdom of the Franks expanded from Austrasia, established by the Merovingian dynasty. Their territory corresponded largely to ancient Gaul as well as Raetia, Germania Superior and Germania Magna. The Franks were Christianized during the 5th century.
