About Old Frankish Old Frankish is an attempt to reconstruct the Frankish language in a form that is usable for the purpose of use in historical fiction and alternative history projects. I created it to mirror the historical Frankish language as closely as possible for my own stories. The language is derived from Proto-Germanic, and has loanwords from Latin, Old High German, Old Norse, as well as other sources.
