    Karl was a Frank, whose homeland was Franconia, the region between Saxony
    and Swabia. The Franks expanded their control to include northern
    Frankreich (France) but remained culturally Frankish. The division of
    culture between Germanic Germany and Germanic France is normally said to be
    observable by the time of the treaty of Metz a hundred years after Karl.
    Beneath the level of the nobles, a Gallo Roman culture continued to limp
    along to one degree or another under the Franks, ultimatly producing the
    Franco-Gallo-Roman fusion we now know as France.
