Dagobert was the last powerful leader of the Merovingian dynasty.  His children would fail to stop the progress northward of that other great religion, Islam.  Unable to organize a successful campaign against the Muslim armies advancing through France, the last Merovingians turned the task over to Charles Martel who won a decisive victory near Poitiers in the 732 AD.  Christian Europe was saved and soon Charles Martel's grandson Charlemagne would rule the entire Christian world.
