education and preservation

One of the most important things Charlemagne did for the world was to turn his castle into a learning center - inviting scholars from all over the world to take up residence there. He used his scholars to create illuminated manuscripts that preserved knowledge during the Dark Ages.

was there ever a clash for power

When Charlemagne was king and Adrian was pope, these two men worked together to rule much of medieval Europe. 

  • Wherever Adrian was pope, he acted as if everyone had to obey Charlemagne as the secular leader of the people, and so it came to pass. 
  • Wherever Charlemagne was king, he acted as if everyone had to obey Adrian as the spiritual leader of the people, and so it came to pass.
