Battle of Fontenay (841)

The Battle of Fontenay was the decisive battle of the Carolingian civil war fought between the three surviving sons of Louis the Pious over the partition of the Carolingian Empire. Allied forces of Louis the German and Charles the Bald decisively defeated the forces of Lothair I who was afterwards forced to give up his claim to the entire Carolingian Empire and to accept its partition into three kingdoms with the Treaty of Verdun which was signed in 843.
