  • King of the Lombards - Dates: 774-814


Charlemagne (742 or 747 -- 28 January 814) (also Charles the Great[1]; from Latin, Carolus Magnus[2]), son of King Pippin the Short and Bertrada of Laon, was king of the Franks from 768 to 814 and king of the Lombards from 774 to 814. He was crowned Imperator Augustus in Rome on 25 December 800 by Pope Leo III and is therefore regarded as the first Holy Roman Emperor (as Charles I). Through military conquest and defence, he solidified and expanded his realm to cover most of western Europe. His rule is associated with the peak of the Carolingian Renaissance, a revival of central authority in western Europe after the fall of the Western Roman Empire.
