Louis III,

byname LOUIS THE YOUNGER, German LUDWIG DER JUENGERE (b. c. 830--d. Jan. 20, 882, Frankfurt), king of part of the East Frankish realm who, by acquiring western Lotharingia (Lorraine) from the West Franks, helped to establish German influence in that area.

A son of Louis the German, king of the East Franks, Louis the Younger invaded Aquitaine on his father"s orders in 854. For some time Charles the Bald, Louis the German"s half brother and king of the West Franks, had been attempting to conquer the Aquitanian kingdom, and in 852 he imprisoned Pepin II of Aquitaine, his nephew, who had fallen into his hands. In the following year the Aquitanian magnates sent envoys to Louis the German, offering the crown either to him or to one of his sons. It was at that time that Louis agreed to send Louis the Younger to Aquitaine with an army. The expedition was, however, unsuccessful. Pepin escaped from prison, and upon his return the Aquitanians abandoned the cause of Louis the Younger, who was forced to return to Bavaria.

Under arrangements made by his father in 865 and 872, Louis the Younger received Franconia, Thuringia, and Saxony after his father"s death (August 876). When Charles the Bald attempted to seize eastern Lotharingia (i.e., that part of Lotharingia that had belonged to Louis the German), Louis the Younger defeated him at Andernach (October 876) and incorporated it into his own dominions. By invading the West Frankish kingdom, he acquired western Lotharingia in the treaties of Verdun (879) and Ribémont (880).
