Clovis I (466-511) became the first King of the Frankish Empire aged 15. He and his army would go on to unite the whole of Gaul under Merovingian rule, and with the help of his sons, he expanded the Empire into Germany and Northern Italy. Clovis converted to Christianity in 496 after his saintly wife, Clothilde (475-545), introduced him to Catholicism. This would prove to be the beginning of a long relationship between the French monarchy and the Catholic Church. Just before his death in 511, he made Paris his capital. Today, Clovis is thought by the French to be the original founder of France.
