Clovis I, born in 466 and died November 27, 511) was the firstGermanic King to convert to Catholicism. He was also the First Kingor founder of France.
Clovis (c. 466-511) was the first King of the Franks to unite all the Frankish tribes under one king. He also introduced Christianity. He was the son of Childeric I and Basina. At age 16, he succeeded his father, in the year 481. Clovis had previously married the Christian Burgundian princess Clo…tilde (493), and, according toGregory of Tours, as a result of his victory at Tolbiac (traditionally set in 496), he converted to herCatholic faith. Conversion to Christianity set Clovis apart from the other Germanic kings of his time, such as those of the Visigoths and the Vandals, who had converted from heathen beliefs toArian Christianity. It also ensured him of the support of the Catholic Gallo-Roman aristocracy in his later campaign against the Visigoths, which drove them from southern Gaul (507). Clovis was baptised at Rheims on Christmas 496, 498 or 506 by Saint Remigius.  The conversion of Clovis to catholic Christianity, the religion of the majority of his subjects, strengthened the bonds between his Roman subjects, led by their Catholic bishops, and their Germanic conquerors. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clovis_I ( Full Answer )

The assumption has been that their ancestors moved south from Alaska, pursuing their favorite prey, the mammoth. However, there are no Clovis sites in either Alaska or Canada; likewise, there are no technologica…l antecedants for Clovis anywhere in the Americas nor are their any technological antecedants in northeast Asia, extreme eastern Asia, or anywhere in Asia. So from where did the Clovis people come - or at least, from where did their technology of producing finely crafted, fluted spear points, come? ( Full Answer )

Yes and no. It is technically illegal to have hens in Clovis, unless you area is zoned as part of the county. However, this is only enforced if your neighbors complain. If you want to raise chickens, ask your neighbors if they'd mind a few neighboring chickens. If no one does, go ahead, but keep it …small - say 2 or 3 chickens. As a general rule, though, avoid roosters. You're bound to get more than a few complaints if you have something that crows every morning before dawn. ( Full Answer )

Clovis' principle contribution was marrying Clotilde who was Catholic and as a result forcing all his subjects to become Roman Catholic--they were Arians before that. In fact the vast majority of Christians were Arians until this time, but this conversion threw the majority over to Rome. Wikipedia …says: "Clovis was converted to Catholicism ;  at the instigation of his wife, Clotilde, a Burgundian Gothic princess who was a Catholic in spite of the Arianism which surrounded her at court. The followers of Catholicism believe that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are three persons in one God, as opposed to the Arian Christianity , whose followers believed that God and Jesus were two completely separate beings and the Holy Spirit was not entirely separate from God but was the Power of God, a belief system common among the Goths who ruled most of Gaul at the time." Charlemagne's primary contribution to Christianity was to force the Saxons at sword-point to become Christians. ( Full Answer )

Three important influenceson his life (who all became saints) including St. Remigius(Clotilda's spiritual advisor), bishop of Rheims, St. Genevieve,the saint of Paris, and, finally, St. Clotilda, the p…rincess ofBurgundy. King Clovis married Clotilda, and during a particularlydifficult battle, he prayed to "Clotilda's God" for victory. Afterwinning the battle, as good as his word, he was baptized by St.Remigius along with, surprisingly, three thousand Franks who agreedto follow their King into this new religion. During the baptismalceremony, a "striking incident occurred that was to haveconsequences for fifteen hundred years." In those days (Christmas496 A.D.) confirmation was still administered immediately afterbaptism, and when it came time for the confirmation, the clericcarrying the Sacred Chrism could not get through the crowd. St.Remigius looked up to heaven to see a dove descending, a phial ofoil in its beak. "With this oil he anointed the king, and it wasafterward used in the coronation ceremonies of the kings of France.. . . Smashed during the French Revolution, the remains wererecovered and a few precious drops last used for the coronation ofCharles X in 1824" one thousand, three hundred, twenty-eight yearslater.
