The New Columbia Encyclopedia, 1975, p129, Aquitaine: "...In 781, Charlemagne, who subdued the native nobles, made Aquitaine into a kingdom for his son Louis (later Emperor of the West). After the death (838) of Louis' son Pepin I, Louis added Aquitaine to the West Frankish kingdom of Neustria (France) and granted it to his youngest son Charles the Bald (II, Emperor of the West). A group of Aquitanian nobles made Pepin's young son, Pepin II, King, and a struggle for control ensued between Charles and the Aquitanian (840-852; 862-865). Charles was the eventual victor. During this period Aquitaine was subject to attacks by both Normans and Muslims. The repeated invasions, combined with the civil wars, weakened Carolingian control over Aquitaine, despite Charles the Bald's victory over Pepin II. Charles' successors were forced to recognize the hereditary rights of a number of independent noble families, and during the 10th century royal influence virtually disappeared. After 973 the counts of Poitou bore the title of Duke of Aquitaine; their controlbeyond Poitou, however was not realized for many years..."
