Publisher's Summary

When the legendary Frankish king and emperor Charlemagne died in 814 he left behind a dominion and a legacy unlike anything seen in Western Europe since the fall of Rome. Johannes Fried paints a compelling portrait of a devout ruler, a violent time, and a unified kingdom that deepens our understanding of the man often called the father of Europe.

Very heavy going

There seemed to be a great deal made of the fact that there was little verifiable evidence of Charlemagne‘s birth, life and life events. I found the content very dry.
