Thuringian Kingdom

The Thuringian Kingdom situated in today’s central Germany between the Elbe and the Danube was established in the late 5th century. It reached its height and territorial peak during the reign of Hermanfrid, son of King Bessinus and the last independent king of the Thuringii. The Thuringian Kingdom was conquered by the Franks in 531-532 and afterwards governed by the Frankish dukes. Charlemagne transformed the former Thuringian Kingdom into a frontier march for his campaigns against the Slavs.
