Art History

The Franks were a Germanic people who settled in the northeast corner of the Roman province of Gaul, what is now modern-day France, during the fifth century. In the early sixth century, the Franks were united politically by the famous King Clovis (r. 481551), who extended his dominion over most of the former Roman province. The Franks were accomplished metalworkers who considered articles of personal adornment to be symbols of power and status.
