Charlemagne

Specialties / Talents

Background

Charlemagne, also known as Charles the Great, (2 April 742 – 28 January 814), united the majority of western and central Europe in what became known as the Carolingian Empire, the first major empire in western Europe since the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

Charlemagne was the eldest son of Pepin the Short and Betrada of Laon. He became king in 768 following his farther’s death, initially as co-ruler with his brother Carloman I. Carloman’s sudden death in December 771 left Charlemagne as the sole ruler of the Frankish Kingdom. He followed in this father’s footsteps, protecting the Roman Catholic Church, conquering the Lombards, and campaigning against Muslim Spain and the Saxons. He was crowned “Emperor of the Romans” by Pope Leo III on Christmas Day of the year 800.
