Annales Iuvavenses

The Annales iuvavenses or Annals of Salzburg were a series of annals written in the 9th and 10th centuries at Salzburg (the former Roman Iuvavum) in the East Frankish stem duchy of Bavaria. They are a useful source for southeastern Germany and Austria where they exist, but they only survive in fragments copied at the scriptorium of Admont Abbey in the 12th century.[1]

According to the Annales Iuvavenses, in 920 Baiuarii sponte se reddiderunt Arnolfo duci et regnare eum fecerunt in regno Teutonicorum: "the Bavarians, with some other East Franks, elected Arnulf German king in opposition to Henry" (actually in 919). This provides some of the only evidence for the concept of a "Kingdom of Germany" before the late 11th century, but it may be a 12th-century interpolation, as most scholars perceive it to be.[1] The Salzburg annals are also the only source for an assassination attempt on incapacitated King Carloman by the Bavarians in 878,[2] the first medieval mention of Vienna in 881, and the location of the Battle of Pressburg (Brezalauspurc) against the Hungarians in 907.
