All in all, the Carolingian regime, especially under Charlemagne, was relatively effective in corralling what power was available to it, and in focussing legitimation upon itself. 37 In brief, the elite did react to the messages the regime sent out. The mid ninth century hand book of the lady Dhuoda is witness to how much aristocratic culture had come to focus upon the Carolingians. The lesser nobility were also affected by the demands of the regime. 38 And for the Rhineland, Matthew Innes has described how in the eighth century the nobility shifted the focus of their activities from the cities on the Rhine to rural monasteries.
