CountryFrancia (Kingdom of the Franks)
Personal InformationKing Clovis IV of the Franks (682 - 695)

Clovis IV (sometimes Clovis III if the other Clovis III is considered a usurper) (682–95), son of Theuderic III, was the sole king of the Franks from 691 until his death. Although Clovis IV is called "King of the Franks", he was really a puppet - a roi fainéant (do-nothing king) - of his uncle Pepin II, mayor of the palace of Austrasia. He assumed the throne at the age of nine and died when he was only thirteen.
