(b. 941--d. March 2, 986), Carolingian king of France from 954 to 986, the eldest son of Louis IV. He was elected king without opposition after his father"s death but was dominated first by Hugh the Great and then, from 956 to 965, by his uncle, Bruno, archbishop of Cologne, whose support was invaluable but who used his influence also in the interests of Otto I, his brother, the German king, and of Hugh Capet and the other sons of Hugh the Great, Bruno"s nephews.

After Bruno"s death, Lothair"s position deteriorated. Although his relations with Hugh Capet were generally good, he had only a tiny domain and was much distracted by feudal conflict. Also, a persistent desire to get Lorraine from the German allegiance brought disastrous consequences: his support of a revolt there (976) against Otto II impelled the latter to give the duchy of Lower Lorraine to Lothair"s refractory brother, Charles; Lothair"s plan to capture Otto"s family at Aachen (978) miscarried and provoked a retaliatory raid into France; and a third invasion of Lorraine (985) not only failed in its purpose but determined the powerful Archbishop Adalbero of Reims to support Hugh Capet against Lothair. Lothair was, however, preparing yet another expedition into Lorraine when he died, to be succeeded by his son, Louis V.
