How does clovis relate to the middle ages?

Clovis was the name of four kings of the Franks. The most important of the kings of this name was probably Clovis I (reigned 481-511), who was the first king to unite all the Frankish tribes into a single kingdom; in the course of doing this, he ended the last vestige of the Roman Empire in Gaul. He also converted to Christianity, and established Paris as his capital.
