The Life of Charlemagne free pdf Charles I or Charlemagne united most of Western Europe during the Middle Ages and laid the foundations for modern France and Germany. He was the first recognized Roman emperor in Western Europe since the collapse of the Western Roman Empire three centuries earlier and ruled absolutely over a vast domain for thirteen years.
