Capitulary of Quierzy
Called with the help by the pope Jean VIII, threatened by the Moslems, Charles the Bald person undertakes a forwarding in Italy. Beforehand it joins together an assembly with Quierzy to regulate the good walk of its empire. In this same assembly, it promulgates a Capitulaire whose two articles which had only one specific range - forwarding in Italy and its direct consequences - were regarded as the articles founders of feudality by the heredity of the Honneur S.
They are the articles which settle the question of the laic honors and ecclesiastics who have suddenly been occupied for this period.
- the évêchés vacant ones will be submitted to a board of trustees while waiting for the decision of the emperor;
- if a count dies, his/her assisted oldest son of the bishop and the principal officers of the county, will manage the county;
- if vassal dies, its widow and her children will have her benefit temporarily;
- if the emperor dies during forwarding - Charles the Bald person leaves just a Pleurésie - and that large is withdrawn in a monastery to request for its safety, his/her son or a relative “inherits” his benefit.
However, these articles were never evoked with the Middle Ages to justify the heredity of the strongholds: warlike virtues being famous to be transmitted by blood. The feudal system more surely developed by the effect of an edict of Clotaire II of 614, holding the title of count to men resulting from the county and having goods there. This edict, which made it possible to the king to seize these goods if the management of the count were indelicate, made it possible those to increase their power while being based on a network of close relations.
