    Lothair I, Holy Roman Emperor, King of Italy

    Buried at St. Saveur, France

    Lothair became co-ruler with his father in 817 and was crowned by the pope six years later.
    He twice conspired with his brothers in revolts against their father. In 839 Lothair received the eastern part of the empire in addition to Italy, which he had received in 822. After the Death of Louis I, Lothair attempted to assert his power over his brothers, but he was defeated by them at Fontenoy, France, on June 25, 841. By the Treaty of Verdun (843), the title of Holy Roman emperor was guaranteed to Lothair, together with sovereignty over Italy, Burgundy, Alsace, Lorraine, and the Low Countries. After having divided his kingdom among his sons, Lothair retired to a monastery. His second son, sometimes called Lothair II, reigned from 855 to 869 over the Kingdom of Lotharingia. He is buried in Monastery of Pruem.
