King Of The Franks
The FRANKS were originally led by dukes (military leaders) and reguli (petty kings). The Salian Merovingians rose to dominance among the Franks and conquered most of Roman Gaul . They also conquered the Gaulish territory of the Visigothic Kingdom in 507. The sons of Clovis conquered the Burgundians and Alamanni . They acquired Provence and made the Bavarii and Thuringii their clients. The Merovingians were later replaced by a new dynasty called the Carolingians in the 8th century. By the end of the 9th century, the Carolingians themselves were replaced throughout much of their realm by other dynasties. The idea of a "King of the Franks" or _Rex Francorum_ gradually disappeared over the 12th and 13th centuries

Sarcophagus
A SARCOPHAGUS (plural, sarcophagi) is a box-like funeral receptacle for a corpse , most commonly carved in stone, and usually displayed above ground, though it may also be buried. The word "sarcophagus" comes from the Greek σάρξ _sarx_ meaning "flesh", and φαγεῖν _phagein_ meaning "to eat", hence _sarcophagus_ means "flesh-eating"; from the phrase _lithos sarkophagos_ (λίθος σαρκοφάγος). Since _lithos_ is Greek for "stone", _lithos sarcophagos_ means, "flesh-eating stone". The word also came to refer to a particular kind of limestone that was thought to decompose the flesh of corpses trapped within it.

The BASILICA OF SAINT DENIS (French: Basilique royale de Saint-Denis, or simply Basilique Saint-Denis) is a large medieval abbey church in the city of Saint- Denis
Denis
, now a northern suburb of Paris
Paris
. The building is of unique importance historically and architecturally as its choir , completed in 1144, shows the first use of all of the elements of Gothic architecture. The site originated as a Gallo-Roman cemetery in late Roman times. The archeological remains still lie beneath the cathedral; the people buried there seem to have had a faith that was a mix of Christian and pre-Christian beliefs and practices. Around 475 St. Genevieve purchased some land and built Saint-Denys de la Chapelle . In 636 on the orders of Dagobert I the relics of Saint Denis
