The Pippinids or Arnulfings are the members of a family of Frankish nobles whose select scions served as major-domos, de facto rulers, of the Frankish kingdoms of Neustria and Austrasia that were nominally ruled by the Merovingians. The last of the Pippinids was Charlemagne's father Pippin III (Pepin III) (also known as Pippin the Short), 714-768, who became major-domo in 741 upon the death of his father Charles Martel and was subsequently elected king in his own right in 751.
