"Carloman, son of Pepin d.771...In 1263 and 1264 at the request of Saint Louis, the tombs of the kings of France were disposed at St-Denis and buried between the pillars at the crossing of the transept, the merovingians and Carolingians in the south, the Capetians in the north. To commemeorate the occasion, sixteen stone gisants were executed (that of Eudes and Hugh Capet disappeared during the French Revolution), all identically dressed and represented in the same fashion: with the eyes open and calm gestures. The face of the queens, emphasized by the play of light about their veils are the most beautiful. Those of Henry I and Robert the Pious are the most expressive. The work of three different artists can be recognized, each bringing a certain diversity to this series of gisants without upsetting its overall plan."

The New Columbia Encyclopedia, 1975, p458, Carloman: "Born 751, Died 771, son of Pepin the Short. He and his brother, Charlemagne, shared the succession to their father's kingdom; Carloman ruled the southern portion. Attempts to end rivalry between the brothers failed, and when Carloman died Charlemagne seized his domain. Carloman's wife and children went to the court of Desiderius, who, as an enemy of Charlemagne, supported their claims."
Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1981, Micropaedia, Vol II, p569, Carloman: "Born 751, Died 771, the younger brother of Charlemagne, with whom he was anointed co-king of the Franks by Pope Stephen II (or III) in 754. He inherited in 768 the eastern part of the Frankish domain; favouring an alliance with the Lombards, he married a daughter of their king, Desiderius. Upon Carloman's sudden death, his lands were annexed by Charlemagne."

France A Modern History, Albert Guerard, 1959, Univ Michigan Press, p50: "...In 768 Pepin died. According to Frankish custom, his domains were divided between his two sons, Charles and Carloman. The latter, however, survived his father by three years only..."
