comment Language of early French (West-Frankish) kings
@Asche Nice observation: the Oaths of Strasbourg are a good proxy of the "acceptance" of Old French at court. But they do not necessarily prove that Charles the Bald actually spoke Old French as his native language. I am also interested in knowing which King was the first to actually have Old French as his mother tongue. Is there any documentation?

comment Language of early French (West-Frankish) kings
that's why I used early French and "French"....My question really is when did they switch from their original Germanic language (Frankish) to the language of the people (Romance language, whatever stage it was in at the moment)
