- Pope John VIII needed the help of Charles the Bald, king of West Francia, against attacks by the Saracens in Italy. At the end of June Charles set out for Italy accompanied by his wife Richilda and only a small number of his chief vassals. Orders had been issued for an army to be assembled to join him a little later. Pope John VIII received Charles at Vercelli. But at the same time Carloman, king of Bavaria and the East Mark, had also crossed the Alps into eastern Lombardy at the head of a powerful army. Charles hurried on the coronation of Richilda as Empress and sends her back to Gaul with orders for the reinforcements to hurry. However, the Frankish aristocracy was more concerned with the attacks by the Northmen in their country than the war with the Saracens in southern Italy. When the reinforcements didn't arrive, Charles the Bald was compelled to return to West Francia. But on the road he died in a poor hovel. It was said that he was poisoned by his Jewish doctor Zedekiah. Carloman of Bavaria forced by an epidemic, which broke out in his army, returned to Germany.
When Louis the Stammerer received news of the death of his father, Charles the Bald, he made plans to go into West Francia to receive the oath of fidelity from his new subjects. On his way he learned that the magnates were refusing him obedience by rallying around Boso and the Abbot Hugh. The rebels were supported by his stepmother, the widowed Empress Richilda, and, as a sign of their displeasure, were ravaging the country. Boso was the brother of Richilda and duke of Provence, Hugh had been given the Abbey of Saint-Bertin by Louis’ father. Hincmar, Archbishop of Rheims, interceded and the rebels agreed to a settlement. The magnates, whose rights the king promised to recognize, all made their submissions. On December 8, 877 Hincmar crowned Louis the Stammerer King of the West Franks in the church of Compiegne
