In 486 CE Clovis fought Syagrius and defeated him at the Battle of Soissons. King Alaric I surrendered to Clovis since he didn't wasn't to have war. When Sygarius returned to Soissons he was executed.
In 503 CE Clovis changes into a Christian since he thought this would be very helpful to him. According to Gregory the tour, Clovis' change to Christianity was because of his marriage to his wife, the Burgundian princess Clotilde, the daughter of Chilperic.
