His conviction as defender and supporter of the church included detailed instruction to church . Charlemagne - Charlemagne - Court and administration: While responding to the challenges involved in enacting his role as warrior king, Charlemagne was mindful of the obligation of a Frankish ruler to maintain the unity of his realm. This burden was complicated by the ethnic, linguistic, and legal divisions between the populations brought under Frankish domination in the course of three.

    Charlemagne - Charlemagne - Emperor of the Romans: Charlemagne’s prodigious range of activities during the first 30 years of his reign were prelude to what some contemporaries and many later observers viewed as the culminating event of his reign: his coronation as Roman emperor. In considerable part, that event was the consequence of an idea shaped by the interpretation given to Charlemagne. Charlemagne, or Charles the Great ( - ), was king of the Franks between and , and Holy Roman Emperor from until his death. He was known as one of greatest rulers of the Middle Ages.

    The period of Charlemagne was also an epoch of reform for the Church in Gaul, and of foundation for the Church in Germany, marked, moreover, by an efflorescence of learning which fructified in the great Christian schools of the twelfth and later centuries. To the fall of Pavia (). The Libri Carolini ("Charles' books"), Opus Caroli regis contra synodum ("The work of King Charles against the Synod"), also called Charlemagne's Books or simply the Carolines, are the work in four books composed on the command of Charlemagne, around , to refute the supposed conclusions of the Byzantine Second Council of Nicaea (), particularly as regards its acts and decrees in the.

Published: (). Wilson achieves two goals with this book, first it is a biography of Charlemagne and second it is a study of the movement of political power from the Mediterranean region to Western Europe.

Charlemagne inherited vast lands from his father Pepin the Short and from his brother who unfortunately died at age 20 and his lands were immediately absorbed into the lands of Charlemagne.4/4(74). "Becoming Charlemagne" is definitely history light, and a quick read which or almost more like a historical novel than a stab at a history book.

Sypeck spends a great deal of time trying to recreate what sights and sounds of places like Charlemagne's rural mountainside court in Aachen, or the colorful, corrupt streets of Constantinople/5. Pepin III, King of the Franks, knelt with his sons to be anointed by Pope Stephen III in or imitation of the anointing of King David by the prophet Samuel.

And like David's son Solomon, Pepin's son Charles would preside over a renowned cultural and religious flowering. Answer: The name Charlemagne is Latin for “Charles the Great,” who was king of the Franks from to He is considered one of the most powerful and dynamic kings in history, and he had a profound impact on European culture and on the Catholic Church.

A region around Rome that was captured from the Lombards by Pepin the Short and given to the pope; then, when the Lombards later tried to take the land back, the Pope called on Charlemagne for help and he succeeded making Charlemagne the king of the Lombards as well as the Franks.

Charlemagne (c), also known as Karl and Charles the Great, was a medieval emperor who ruled much of Western Europe from to InCharlemagne became king of the Franks, a Germanic tribe in present-day Belgium, France, Luxembourg, the. I confess I didnt know much about Charlemagne when I picked up this book.

But I am fascinated by everything after the fall of the Roman Empire. So I wanted to know more about the man who shaped so much of Europe back then. This book delivered. The authors conversational tone made the book easy to read. I found myself not wanting to put it down/5. Charlemagne (English: /ˈʃɑːrləmeɪn, ˌʃɑːrləˈmeɪn/; French: [ʃaʁləmaɲ]) or Charles the Great (2 April – 28 January ), numbered Charles I, was king of the Franks fromking of the Lombards fromand emperor of the Romans from During the Early Middle Ages, he united the majority of western and central : Pepin the Short.

Charlemagne - Charlemagne - Religious reform: Charlemagne’s military conquests, diplomacy, and efforts to impose a unified administration on his kingdom were impressive proof of his ability to play the part of a traditional Frankish king.

His religious policy reflected his capacity to respond positively to forces of change working in his world. Particularly intriguing is Charles's instrumental role in the formation of Catholic doctrine.

The apparent paradoxes of Charlemagne's character—his deep intellectual curiosity; his drive to reform Christian practice; and a degree of brutality criticized even by some Cited by: Wilson's 'Charlemagne: The Great Adventure' upset a lot of readers by seemingly misleading them in its summary: purported to be a biography of the emperor's life, the book is rather a glimpse into the formation of 'Europe' as a concept across the centuries, centralised around the idea that it all began with Charlemagne and his reforms/5.

Charlemagne was able to protect the church, in particular Pope Leo III from being exiled. He also created a tax system in which the church received taxes from the people. Charlemagne Charlemagne was an extraordinary figure: an ingenious military strategist, a wise but ruthless leader, a cunning politician, and a devout believer who ensured the survival of Christianity in the West.

He also believed himself above the. However, their coronations signified radical differences. In an illusionary yet symbiotic sense Napoleon () could claim that “For the Pope’s purposes I am Charlemagne—like Charlemagne I join the crown of France with the crown of the Lombards.”[] Like Charlemagne, the Church, including the pope, was to be an obedient patriarchy.

Charlemagne, king of the Franks (–), king of the Lombards (–), and first emperor (–) of what was later called the Holy Roman Empire. His feats as a ruler, both real and imagined, served as a standard to which many European rulers looked for guidance in defining and discharging their royal functions.

Rosamond McKitterick's Charlemagne is the most up-to-date scholarly work. For a broader perspective, you might want to check out The Carolingian World (), which could be used as a textbook for an advanced history class but which I still find to be a straightforward and enjoyable read.

And if you're willing to make the adjustment, there's nothing like going back to the sources.Page 51 - Franks, the boys had to learn horsemanship, and to practise war and the chase, and the girls to familiarize themselves with cloth-making, and to handle distaff and spindle, that they might not grow indolent through idleness, and he fostered in them every virtuous sentiment.

He only lost three of all his children before his death, two sons and one daughter, Charles, who was the eldest /5(3).A brilliant work of getting inside Charlemagne’s head and what he sought to achieve, or reform, through a so-called Holy Empire.
