  • Title: Bastards or Kings or Both? Louis III and Carloman in Late-Medieval French Historiography [The author surveys histories and chronicles written between 1380 and 1515 to trace their treatment of the two Carolingian kings' illegitimacy. Despite strong royalist propaganda which maintained that the French royal line was "pure," a substantial minority of authors acknowledged both that the two were kigns and were the sons of a concubine.
