Carloman (849 – 874) was the youngest son of Charles the Bald. A monk from childhood, he was appointed Abbot of Saint Meddard in Soissons. In 870, he left the monastery where he had retired and revolted against his father. He was captured and blinded by his unforgiving father. He fled to the court of his uncle Louis the German, where he died.
