The name means “glorious in battle, famous warrior”. Directly from the root of the name derives, for example, “Ludwig” and from “Chlodovech”, for example, derive the masculine form “Clovis and Clodoveo”. Clovis I, “Latinized form Chlodovech”, king of the Franks and ruler of much of Gaul from 481 to 511, a key period during the transformation of the Roman Empire into Europe. His dynasty, the Merovingians, survived more than 200 years, until the rise of the Carolingians in the 8th century.
