History Day School in Pickering: The Age of Charlemagne

Ref: C3680379

He was the first emperor in the West since the fall of Rome, and yet Charlemagne’s empire was very different to any which had gone before. The Frankish warlord spent a lifetime on the battlefield, slaughtered thousands, and yet yearned to create the City of God. He filled his palaces with scholars, commissioned beautiful art, and strove to unite a fractured and unwilling Europe. For all his limitations, his very existence acted as an inspiration for the age to come.
