- What about the Carolingian, 9th century Utrecht psalter? http://libraries.slu.edu/archives/digcoll/mssexhibit07/manuscripts/utrecht.htmlMessage 1 of 7 , Feb 11, 2010View SourceWhat about the Carolingian, 9th century Utrecht psalter?

There seem to be a few images of women (or at least people in very long gowns with veils).
"Transformation of the Roman World" p.226-7 (GoogleBooks preview: http://books.google.com.au/books?id=SvFs3xAE6jsC&pg=PA227&lpg=PA227&dq=francia+dress+9th+century&source=bl&ots=Y58tCRUtFb&sig=kuby3v-BE1ZCXMttxjmcgZhNkoc&hl=en&ei=bYN0S9OqItGTkAWXs_2bCg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=10&ved=0CCsQ6AEwCQ#v=onepage&q=francia%20dress%209th%20century&f=false ) mentions The Codex Aureus of St. Emmeram, with two women symbolising Francia and Gotia.
Some more awfully symbolic-looking women:

Also, not to judge a book by it's cover, but I wonder if anyone can identify the image here:
Hope some of that helps,

Another suggestion is to Google Queen Arnegunde and/or Queen Bathilde for
the Merovingian grave finds. Also there is a king and queen of one of the
SCA's Eastern kingdoms that does Frankish but I cannot find their site
information right now but I will keep looking.
