Childeric III was the last Merovingian King of the Franks, reigning from A.D. 743 to 751. Scholars widely consider him as a highly ineffective and worthless monarch dominated by his advisors. This overeliance led to the Mayor of the Palace Pepin Martel summoning a council of nobles at Soissons which deposed Childeric and replaced him with Pepin, as King Pepin the Short. After being dethroned, he lived out the rest of his days in a monastery.
