Charlemagne, Charles the Great, King of Franks and Emperor of Western Europe, was born in 742 AD and became a famous commander in one of the great centers of power in history - The Sacred Roman Empire. Charlemagne's empire was based on the fighting strength of the Franks, a confederation of barbarian tribes from the land of the Rhine in German. An aggressive conqueror, wise politician, statesman, and fortunate General, Charlemagne set the shape of the vast empire that, in a different way, has reached modern times.
