In the kingdom of the west Franks, which roughly approximated modern France, royal government was weak, and the realm was a patchwork of regional principalities. Local warlords vied with each other and with the king to expand their power and domains. Although the king was technically the feudal overlord of the whole region, this relationship had little practical significance.
