Annales Xantenses.

The Annales Xantenses or Annals of Xanten are a series of annals written, probably at Lorsch for the period 832 to 852 and at Cologne for the period until 873. The Lorsch author is probably Gerward, a royal chaplain, but the continuator is unknown. For that period (832–873) they present an independent source to augment the other Reichsannalen.
