Charlemagne's success was his military powerEach year he assembled an army and let it into battle against one of his foes
Charlemagne had tremendous power as emperor. However, the empire was so large that it was not easy to rule. Soon after taking power, Charlemagne made several changes to make his government both efficient and effective.
A new Society
Although Charlemagne is known mostly as a warrior and a political leader, he also made sweeping changes to Frankish society. Some of the changes he introduced helped shape life for hundreds of years.
One aspect of society in which Charlemagne was particularly interested was education. He was personally interested in learning and spent much of his time studying. In an era in which education was not widely appreciated, he wanted leaders in his empire to be able to read and write.
In addition to improving education, Charlemagne wanted to preserve and spread Christian teachings. The strength of the emperor’s faith is described by his friend and biographer

In addition, the Vikings’ skills at navigation, or planning the course across the sea, allowed them to cross expanses of ocean in search of wealth, prestige, and new lands.
