A.B. 812.

A.B. 813. Charlemagne, king of France, and patrician of Rome, ordered councils to be held throughout Gaul; one at Mayence, a second at Bheims, a third at Tours, a fourth at Chalons, and a fifth at Aries ; at which councils some chapters of Holy Scriptures, necessary to the Universal Church, are said to have had their interpretation settled. A.B. 814. Charlemagne, king of France, and emperor of Rome, died, after he had reigned forty-five years. And he was succeeded by his son Lewis.
