Border Pact on the Rhine


The Romans leave, and in come the Franks. They first settle in the old legionary camp, renaming it "Bonnburg”. Quite a number of important things occur outside the gates of the Bonnburg in the following centuries. In 753, King Pippin of the Franks crosses the Rhine launching his campaign against the Saxons. In 921, King Henry I meets with Charles III, nicknamed the Simple. The two rulers define the borders of the East Frankish and West Frankish kingdoms on a ship anchoring in the middle of the Rhine. The Bonnburg also accommodates a royal mint.
