Childeric was then persuaded to issue legislation which safeguarded the rights of the magnates by preserving regional laws and customs and by forbidding officials to enter provinces other than those in which they held office. In order to prevent the mayor exercising tryannical power, that is, usurping royal authority as Ebroin had done, the position of mayor was to be made more open.
