Herioldus now received the support of the emperor, and after several unsuccessful attempts a compromise was effected in 819 when the parties agreed to share the realm.
In 820 Herioldus was baptized at Mainz and received from the emperor a grant of Riustringen in N.E.
In 827 he was expelled from his kingdom, but St Anskar, who had been sent with Herioldus to preach Christianity, remained at his post.
In the meantime Herioldus remained on friendly terms with Lothair and received a further grant of Walcheren and the neighbouring districts.
In 850 Horic was attacked by his own nephews and compelled to share the kingdom with them, while in 852 Herioldus was charged with treachery and slain by the Franks.
