Lewis (Louis) I

(778–840)
   Emperor.
   Lewis was the third son of the Emperor charlemagne. He was appointed joint Emperor in 813, but his reign was troubled as a result of the rivalry between his four sons. He was deposed in 833, but reinstated in 835. He is remembered as ‘the Pious’ as well as ‘the Weak- Hearted’. He helped anskar in his Scandinavian mission; he built a model abbey near Aachen and he encouraged monastic reform. He also patronised many of the scholars of the Carolingian renaissance.
