  • During the 400s, the Franks, who settled in present-day France & Germany, emerged as the strongest power.

  • Their early rulers, known as Merovingian kings (for the ruler Merowig) held power until the 700s.

Coat of arms activity

Coat of Arms Activity

In Medieval Europe, Knights were warriors or soldiers that helped protect the king and nobles.

They wore heavy armor for protection and identified themselves with a coat of arms.

Coat of arms were individual designs painted on their shields that had relation to their family and heritage.

Nobles also used these to identify their family.

For this activity, you are going to create your own coat of arms.
