Louis II the Stammerer, then Louis III and Carloman, son and grandsons of Charles the Bald person (877-884) hold head with the Norman ones, but cannot put an end to anarchy.
With the death of Carloman (884), Charles the Large one, son of Louis the Germanic one, joins together a few times between his hands Germanie, Italy and France; the Empire is reconstituted and it seems enough strong to push back the Norman ones, but Charles the Large one, instead of crushing them under the walls of Paris, can only shamefully buy their retirement, and the large ones benefit from its cowardice to deposit it with the diet of Tribur (887).
The Empire is definitively parcelled out: Germanie, Italy, France, Burgundy, Lorraine, Navarre gives itself each one a king; the king of France is the son of Robert the Fort.
Eudes, duke of France.
Each one of these kingdoms itself is parcelled out: in France the duke of Aquitaine, the duke of Burgundy, the count de Vermandois, the count of Anjou, the count of Toulouse, etc… are as powerful as the king, who is hardly but duke of France.
