Lothair, though inexperienced and very ingenuous, was not devoid of a certain instinctive perception of men and things, which rendered it difficult for him to be an easy prey. But he was naturally generous and sensible of kindness; and this was a favourite companion --next to Bertram his most intimate. His natural disposition, and his comparatively solitary education, had made him a keen observer, and he was one who mediated over his observations.

Upon his father' s death in 855, he received as his kingdom a territory west of the Rhine stretching from the North Sea to the Jura mountains. It became known as Regnum Lotharii and early in the 10th century as Lotharingia or Lorraine (a designation subsequently applied only to the duchy of Lorraine). His elder brother Louis II received northern Italy and the title of Emperor, and his younger brother Charles received the western parts of his father' s domains, Burgundy and the Provence.
