Charlemagne "Charles the Great" Frankish Emperor of the West1

M, b. 2 April 747, d. between 28 January 814 and 815
Charlemagne
     was born on 2 April 747 at Ingelheim.2,3 He was the son of Pepin III "The Short" King of the Franks and Bertrade deLaon "au Grand Pied" ("Broad Foot").
     
     Charlemagne, Frankish Emperor
     
     
Charlemagne, or "Charles the Great, Carolingian King" of the Franks, came to rule over most of Europe and assumed (800) the title of Roman Emperor. He is sometimes regarded as the founder of the Holy Roman Empire. Charlemagne was probably born in 742 at Aachen. In 768 he and his brother Carloman inherited the Frankish kingdom (most of present-day France and a part of western Germany) from their father Pepin "The Shore". The entire kingdom passed to Charlemagne when Carloman died in 771.
     
     CONQUESTS
     
     Charlemagne inherited great wealth and a strong military organization from his father and brother. He used these assets to double the territory under Carolingian control. In 772 he opened his offensive against the Saxons, and for more than three decades he pursued a ruthless policy aimed at subjugating them and converting them to Christianity. Almost every year Charlemagne attacked one or another region of Saxon territory. Mass executions-- 4,500 Saxons were executed on a single day in 782--and deportations were used to discourage the stubborn. The Saxons proved to be a far more difficult enemy than any of the other peoples subjugated by Charlemagne. For example, the Lombards were conquered in a single extended campaign (773-74), after which Charlemagne assumed the title "King of the Lombards." In 788 he absorbed the duchy of . Bavaria, and soon thereafter he launched an offensive against the Avar empire. The Avars succumbed within a decade, yielding Charlemagne a vast hoard of gold and silver. After one disastrous campaign (778) against the Muslims in Spain, Charlemagne left the southwestern front to his son Louis. The latter (later Emperor Louis I), with the help of local Christian rulers, conquered Barcelona in 801 and controlled much of Catalonia by 814. On Christmas Day, 800, Charlemagne accepted the title of emperor and was crowned by Pope LEO III. For several years after he regarded the imperial title of being of little value. Moreover, he intended to divide his lands and titles among his sons, as was the Frankish custom. At his death on Jan. 28, 814, however, only one son, Louis, survived; Louis therefore assumed control of the entire Frankish empire.
     
ADMINISTRATION
     
The internal organization of Charlemagne's empire varied from region to region. In much of what is today France, and especially in the south, the old Roman civitates (fortified cities) served as the focus of most important aspects of political, military, religious, and social organization. Both the count of the city, appointed by Charlemagne as his representative, and the bishop made their respective headquarters in the civitas. The count or his agent led the local army, and the walls of the civitates afforded protection for the inhabitants both of the city and the nearby countryside. In those parts of the empire that had not been part of the Roman world, Charlemagne made an effort to impose a similar system. He divided newly conquered lands into pagi (districts), which were placed under the jurisdiction of counts who exercised the same kind of administrative powers of their counterparts to the west. Charlemagne also sought to establish these new pagi as dioceses. In frontier areas, Charlemagne often established districts that were essentially military in their purpose and organization; these were called marks or marches. Local customs were everywhere perpetuated by recognition of traditional laws. The laws, some unwritten, of each of the various peoples of the Carolingian empire, such as Salian Franks, Ripuarian Franks, Romans, Saxons, Lombards, Bavarians, Thuringians, and Jews, were codified and/or modified if local codes already existed, they were recognized. This judicial autonomy enjoyed by the several peoples of the empire indicates the diversity that not only existed but also flourished under Charlemagne. The emperor did, however, legislate to provide a system by which these various peoples could interact with each other. The central administration of the empire, like the local administrations, was rudimentary. A palatine court followed Charlemagne on his numerous campaigns; during the later years of his life, when he remained at AACHEN, the court stayed there. Charlemagne also sent missi dominici, high-ranking agents of the central government, from the court to see that his orders, often cast in the form of capitularies (ordinances divided into capitula, or chapters), were enforced. As part of his administrative efforts, Charlemagne sought to standardize weights, measures, and coinage. He also made an attempt to control and develop trade. To these ends he strongly encouraged the development of Jewish communities.
     
CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT
     
Charlemagne's concern for administration and his interest in seeing the church function effectively led him to encourage a rudimentary educational system based in monasteries. Thus a small group of clerical and lay administrators attained a useful level of literacy.
     
      Charlemagne left the development and implementation of this system largely to Alcuin. The latter's work led to what some scholars have called the Carolingian Renaissance. At Charlemagne's court a group of scholars was gathered that included men from England, Spain, and Italy, as well as native Franks and probably Jews.

EVALUAtION
     
Charlemagne has been credited with great political and humanitarian vision and a devout religious bent; as a result, some have been led to think of his military ventures as crusades. In fact, he was a gluttonous and superstitious illiterate, or semiliterate, who had a considerable capacity for brutality. His accomplishments were due mostly to the energy with which he pursued his military goals and the ruthlessness with which he treated any opponents. Nonetheless, his achievements were considerable, and the effect of his conquests was to spread Roman Christianity across central Europe.

Pepin III "The Short" King of the Franks

M, b. circa 715, d. 24 September 768
Pepin the "Short"
     Pepin the Short, King of the Franks
     
     
Pepin, also known as Pepin III, c.714-68, was the first Carolingian king of the Franks (Rex Francorum ) and the father of CHARLEMAGNE. Pepin and his brother Carloman succeeded (741) their father, CHARLES MARTEL, as mayors of the palace; during the next six years they crushed a half dozen serious revolts in Bavaria, Alamannia, Saxony, and Aquitaine. With the realm at peace Carloman entered a monastery (747). Three years later Pepin altered the long-standing pro- Lombard policy of his family and arranged with Pope Zacharias to support the papacy in return for papal sanction of Carolingian usurpation of the Frankish kingship. Thus Pepin deposed (751) King Childeric III and was anointed king of the Franks. To preserve his bond with the papacy, Pepin crushed the Lombards when they threatened Rome (754, 756). He ceded conquered territories to the pope (the Donation of Pepin), thus establishing the basis for the PAPAL STATES. Pepin also crushed revolts in Saxony (748, 753) and Bavaria (749) and conquered Aquitaine. He was succeeded by his sons, Charlemagne and Carloman.
     
     
Pepin III "The Short" King of the Franks was Crowned at King of the Franks, Austrasia. was born circa 715 at Austrasia.1 He was the son of Charles Martel "The Hammer" and Chrotrude Duchess of Austrasia. He married Bertrade deLaon "au Grand Pied" ("Broad Foot") circa 740.1,2 died on 24 September 768 at St. Denis, France.1

Louis I Frankish Emperor

M, b. August 778, d. 20 June 840
     Louis I, Frankish Emperor

Although Louis I, "Louis the Pious" born 778, died June 20, 840, was an able ruler and energetic military commander, his reputation has suffered because he was not as successful as his father, CHARLEMAGNE. Louis was crowned king of Aquitaine at the age of three. In this capacity, after reaching his majority, he established a vigorous Carolingian presence in Spain. His brothers having died, he was crowned co emperor in 813, and in 814 he succeeded Charlemagne as sole ruler of the Frankish empire. Louis sought to develop the imperial ideal, working closely with the church. However, squabbles among his sons for greater shares in what was to be their inheritance led to civil war. In 817, Louis made his eldest son, LOTHAIR I, co emperor and allocated parts of the empire to his other sons, LOUIS THE GERMAN and Pepin. The birth of another son, the future Emperor CHARLES II, to Louis's second wife, Judith of Bavaria, started the trouble. Louis's attempts to provide for Charles precipitated a series of revolts by the older sons. The invasions of Vikings and Muslims further weakened Carolingian power. By the time of Louis's death the empire was in serious decline.

Charles II Emperor of the West

M, b. 13 June 823, d. 6 October 877
     Charles II, Frankish Emperor or "Charles the Bald", born June 13, 823, died Oct. 6, 877, was the son of Emperor LOUIS I by his second wife. Resented by three older half brothers, Charles became a pawn in the court politics of the Frankish empire, but by the Treaty of Verdun (843) he was recognized as king of the West Franks, the first true king of France. Toward the end of his life he was acknowledged (875) as emperor with the pope's support. Throughout his reign, Charles had to struggle against Viking raiders and disloyal magnates as well as with his own relatives. The French bishops helped him repel his brother LOUIS THE GERMAN in 859, but ten years later Louis prevented Charles from regaining his family's ancient homeland in LOTHARINGIA. The Treaty of Mersen (870), which established the ultimate boundaries of medieval France, deprived him of most of this disputed territory, and by his death the French monarchy was in serious decline.
