  • Notes 
    • He was called "Charles the Great" as Emperor of the West 800-814
      King of the Franks 768-814. Franks were German tribes who encompassed the Frankish Empire which later became the medieval kingdoms of France, Germany, and Italy in the 8th Century.

      LDS-Charlemagne began his career as King of the Franks but ended it as Emperor of the entire Roman Empire of the West. As king of France, he gained victory over the Lombards of Italy, the Saxons of Northwestern Germany, and a number of other neighbors. He followed a policy of friendship and cooperation with the Roman Catholic Church and was crowned Emperor by the pope on Christmas Day of 800. Charlemagne's views were liberal and enlightened. Although he reigned supreme, he recognized civil rights for his subjects and a limitation onmonarchic power. He possessed an unusual amount of learning and vigorously promoted education. He invited learned men to his court and established a Palace School where noble's sons and clergy were educated. His great dream was the union of all the nations he had conquered into one great empire where the power and learning of Rome could be united with the religion of Christ. His motivation for war seemed to be the conversion of the heathens to Christianity. His last words were, "Now, Lord, into thy hand I commit my spirit."
