Carloman

Carloman, d. 884, king of the West Franks (France), son of King Louis II (Louis the Stammerer). He became joint ruler with his brother Louis III in 879. His reign was disturbed by revolts in Burgundy, by the loss (879) of Provence to Boso, count of Arles, and by an invasion of the Normans. He became sole ruler at his brother's death (882). He was succeeded as French king by Emperor of the West Charles III (Charles the Fat).
