The Carolingian Empire divided because the tradition at that time was that a kingdom was divided among the sons of the king. The imperial title could be divided or not, so there could be co-emperors, but there were a number of kingdoms within the empire. These kingdoms went to war with one another for various reasons, and after a lot of changes, the empire was divided with the largest pieces being the Kingdom of the Franks and the Holy Roman Empire. Both of these changed their methods of monarchic succession.

Under Frankish law, a kingdom did not pass to a single heir, but was distributed among the heirs. Under the Carolingian Empire, this was modified only to the point of having the empire go to a single heir, but there were numerous kingdoms controlled by different kings. The various kings quarrelled, and the overall emperor was only able to get support from his own kingdom, not from the empire as a whole, so the empire passed to a powerless state. Later, it was revived, but France remained separate from it; in this revived form, it was called the Holy Roman Empire.
