Charlemagne, also known as Charles the Great, was the founder of the Carolingian Empire, best known for uniting Western Europe for the first time since the fall of the Roman Empire.

Charlemagne (English: / ˈ ʃ ɑːr l ə m eɪ n, ˌ ʃ ɑːr l ə ˈ m eɪ n /; French: [ʃaʁləmaɲ]) or Charles the Great (2 April – 28 January ), numbered Charles I, was King of the Franks fromKing of the Lombards fromand Emperor of the Romans from During the Early Middle Ages, he united the majority of western and central was the first recognised Father: Pepin the Short.

Rating: a breathless 4* of five Steve Berry does it all right in The Charlemagne Pursuit. He starts right, in the pulse-pounding submarine accident that triggers the action in the book; he ends right, with late-night antics about to begin; he keeps his story moving at a fast clip in between, with love, murder, betrayal, revenge, more betrayal, hate, then love again/5.

Rosamond McKitterick's Charlemagne is the most up-to-date scholarly work. For a broader perspective, you might want to check out The Carolingian World (), which could be used as a textbook for an advanced history class but which I still find to be a straightforward and enjoyable read.

And if you're willing to make the adjustment, there's nothing like going back to the sources. An incisive and absorbing biography of the legendary emperor who bridged ancient and modern Europe and singlehandedly altered the course of Western history.

Charlemagne was an extraordinary figure: an ingenious military strategist, a wise but ruthless leader, a cunning politician, and a devout believer who ensured the survival of Christianity in the West/5(6).

This book focuses directly on the reign of Charlemagne, bringing together a wide range of perspectives and sources with contributions from fifteen of the top scholars of early medieval Europe.

The contributors have taken a number of original approaches to the subject, from the fields of archaeology and numismatics to thoroughly-researched essays on key historical texts.4/5(1).Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books.

My library. Charlemagne is a rare sort of worka satisfying biography about a historical figure about whom very little is directly known. The usual result from biography in such cases, as opposed to histories where a mostly hidden person figures merely in the greater context of his times, is the writing of fiction/5.
